Today is June 1, 2011.Hard to believe school is out this week and summer has begun, mainly because it just snowed a couple of days ago. Looking up at our mountains, it looks like winter and the snow pack is dangerously still deep for this time of year. It is not a matter of if it will flood in the valleys, but when and how much damage will occur.
Even though many are predicting that there will be alot of flooding in the next month. Will is really happen.. or is it just an educated guess, a prediction. Then the thought occured to me... what is the difference between a prediction and a prophesy.
A prediction is a statement about the way things will happen in the future, often but not always based on experience or knowledge. Anyone can make a prediction.
A prophecy is foretelling future events and make a divine declaration of an events to come. It is a process in which one or more messages that have been communicated to a true prophet are then communicated to others by this true prophet. These prophecies involve divine inspiration, interpretation, or revelation of conditioned events to come.
