Quite some time ago now, if memory does not fail me, in a discussion about Sola-Scriptura and the revelatory gifts such prophecy. I believe an article was provided that showed that to believe that gifts like prophecy are still in effect, is to logically not to believe in Sola-Scriptura.
I believe the argument used went something like if the gift of prophecy was still in effect it would logically mean that the prophetic words would be as authoritative as Scripture itself; seeing it came directly from God Himself.
I did a quick search for the article, but could not find it. Though I did find other articles on the cessation of the sign gifts.
I would appreciate reading the article again.
Comments are also welcome.
There are of course people that argue that the opposite it true. That the gift of prophecy does not have the same authority as Scripture and that to believe that these gifts have ceased, is to deny Sola-Scriptura; because Scripture clearly says that they will be in effect until the last days.

Not sure which article you are referring to. However, I have argued myriad times here that if someone claims, "God told me... God spoke to me and said, etc., etc., ad nauseam" then of necessity it is inspired, inerrant and infallible and thus wholly authoritative and unassailable. The canon of Scripture is closed and therefore no extra-biblical communication has come from God from the day the revelation of God came to His appointed servants who put to writing all that was given to them (2Ti 3:15-17; 2Pet 1:19-21; Rev 22:18-20).

Perhaps R. Fowler White's article could be helpful: Does God Speak Today Apart From the Bible?.
