Prophecy and Fortune Telling
Are fortune tellers considered as modern prophets?
Some people do not believe at all to any kind of prophecy.
Some people examine the track record of prophesies fulfilled and unfulfilled.
I am one of the people who believe that there is no such thing as accurate prophecy or prediction.
Prophets or psychics are mere human beings who may filter the information through their personalities and minds. The original messages may then be lost as the recipients of the knowledge may inject their own interpretations and expectations.
It could be also that the Universal Power allows only so much certainty in order to help humanity to deal with it by preparing and choosing the courses of actions that may change the course of destiny.
Prophecies are of two kinds; the events that will surely occur and the events that may occur but may be changed for even though the prophets and the seers can predict catastrophies, they cannot predict the reaction of the people when the events happen.
Great Prophets ?
The most documented prophet was Michel Nostradamus a 16th century French physician and astrologer.
Among his prophecies that had already been realized were:
Edgar Cayce, a well-known psychic and healer predicted the following:
Saint Malachy, a medieval abbot prophesied about the end of the Vatican.
He characterized the reign of Pope John Paul 1 as “ of the waxing moon because his reign lasted only for 34 days.
Prophecy should not be feared but should not be ignored either. We come into terms with the prophecies by acknowledging a higher POWER governing our destinies.
