The Prophetes, Greek Word for “prophecy” means one who speak forth.
A proclaimer of a divine message and means to speak for another. Denoted among the Greeks an interpreter of the oracles of the gods
A prophecy is a divinely inspired and anointed utterance.
It is a manifestation of God speaking the future without using human knowledge.
A prophecy may be a message from God concerning present events or it may concern the future.
Prophesy forth tells and foretells. Hebrew’s word for "to prophesy" means "to flow forth." It also carries with it the thought "to gush forth like a fountain, to let drop, to lift up, to tumble forth, and to spring forth."
A HOLY message, whether present or future, which provides edification, exhortation, and comfort.
"But He that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification and exhortation and comfort," (1 Cor. 14:3).
"Edification" and "exhortation" may indeed be a word of warning for owns his own good.
On many occasions God sent His prophets with stern messages to His own anointed.
Isaiah's trip to Hezekiah was such an occasion. (Also Nathan to King David).
A supernatural message..No true prophecy will contradict the written Word of God.
“And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? For the living to the dead? 20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them,” (Isa. 8:19-20).
