Dreatech: Over two hundred prophesies in the Old Test. told of Jesus coming. They described how you could tell who he was, where he would come from and so forth. They were actually very detailed in their descriptions. Jesus gave many prophesies of which many have come true up-to and including his death and how it would happen years in advance of the incident.
Many prophesies in the last book of the Bible have come true. Such as Israel becoming a nation again, when it had been destroyed many thousands of years ago.
Prophesies if your looking at it from a religious or Christian perspective come from God, but through men or women. If someone just says on a street corner, this will happen or that will happen, be careful. But if that person has written something down years before or weeks before or whatever and it happens then that is a different matter all together.
Yes, a stock trader can say " I make prophesy everyday " on stocks and yes he is right in a way. A sports better is technically prophesying on betting on the Packers to win. It is a different thing all together to make prophesy about mankind, the earth, and life altering statements. That is a whole different venue. When someone writes something two thousand years ago and every word has come true or is about too, then that is a whole different ballgame.....Yes, believe it, it comes from God...
