The light of Prophecy never ceased

"...regarding the matter of prophecy, [we find that] following the destruction of the Holy Temple, prophecy ceased (Bava Basra 12a). Nonetheless, there is a reality of prophecy in this world, but there is interference on the part of the recipients. As far as the light of prophecy is concerned, there is no interference. In reality, the light of prophecy shines even today, it is only that it is not seen and revealed due to the state of the recipients. That is to say, the change is not in the light; it is only that there is no one to receive the light."

Chassidic Discourse Basi Legani 5725 (1965)
