Does the tanach provides us some guidelines to Identify a future prophet?
As it is currently written, your question asks specifically about guidelines mentioned in Tanakh. The only one I can think of is Deuteronomy 34:10, which says:
So if any prophet claims to be greater than Moshe Rabbeinu, he must be a false prophet.
Edit Thanks to msh210 for pointing out Deuteronomy 18:22
This is another way of identifying someone who is not a true prophet: his prophecies do not come true.
Ali, you have mentioned 18:18. That verse doesn't really help to answer your question because it does not provide any guideline for determining whether someone is a prophet. It is simply a promise that a prophet (or really prophets) would come to help lead the Jews after the impending death of Moses.
