Does the Society believe that a true modern prophet would have the same authority as the Old Testament prophets?

Yes. Society members are told that there existed such a group and then they were asked to look for it-“…any group on whom Jehovah would be willing to bestow the commission to speak as a ‘prophet’ in His name, as was done toward Ezekiel…”

Watchtower, March 15, 1972
