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.
Key verse about Prophecy: the prophecy of one who hears the words of God, who sees a vision from the Almighty, who falls prostrate, and whose eyes are opened (Numbers 24:4, NIV)
