What is prophecy?

by Colin Dexter

The Greek word used in the Bible is PROPHETEIA and signifies the speaking forth of the mind and counsel of God. It is the declaration of that which cannot be known by natural means. Its purpose is to edify, comfort and encourage. The message of the prophet was a direct revelation of the mind of God for the occasion. The message of the teacher, however,  is gathered from the completed revelation contained in the Bible.
