Prophecies have always seemed to spark interest in people over millions of years, and rightfully so. The idea of believing in the inevitable affects your decisions. It is both exhilarating and terrifying at the same time.
Let’s explore the power of prophecies and their impact on our lives and society.
Trying to understand something that supposedly stems from the supernatural is quite an impressive feat. However, it’s only important to address misconceptions regarding the subject of prophecy. People believe prophecies are predictions of the future —which they are on some level. But the true purpose of prophecy is to provide hope, inspiration, and guidance.
Prophets were seen as leaders who, through their visions and intuitions for the future, breathed life into the hearts of their peers in hopes of guiding them to a better future. Man is born into this world with certain gifts. However, those gifts are useless if there is no aim for them. Prophecies give people a sense of purpose, direction, and the motivation to use their talents to change their lives.
Prophecy Through History
We’ve seen some famous demonstrations of the power of prophecy throughout history. One of these is the Oracle of Delphi in ancient Greece. The oracle was a priestess who would communicate with the gods and furnish prophecies to all those who sought her wisdom and guidance. Based on these prophecies, people made important decisions, and her influence spread throughout Greece.
If we look at Christianity, we see the same concept of prophecy being a crucial factor in guiding the Israelites. They were warned of dangers and threats to the Church, which helped them survive persecution and spread the Church’s message to others. The prophecies of Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Jeremiah are still studied and preached by many today.
People even turn to tarot readers and other prophetic practitioners for guidance.
Prophecies Are Fueled By Belief
At its very core, prophecy can only work if there is belief. When you believe something will happen with every fiber of your being, your course of action is more likely to reflect that belief. One can even set self-fulfilling prophecies as personal benchmarks and manifest the desired outcome.
You are more likely to succeed in winning a marathon if a prophecy tells you that you will, or if you tell yourself—it is only a matter of when and not if. You will train harder and put in the effort than when you thought you didn’t stand a chance.
Whereas some believe that prophecy is something that is solely supernatural—something written by fate.
