Bible Term: Prophecy

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.
