A prophecy is a God-inspired prediction about a future event.
In Old Testament times, prophecies were often warnings about what could happen (God’s wrath) if certain conditions were not met. Sometimes prophecies included promises or blessings that would be given for obedience or repentance.
One who gives a prophecy is a prophet.
A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 700-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and numerous books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
