According to Webster’s dictionary, one of the definitions of ‘prophecy’ is a prediction of something to come.
There are many responsibilities of a prophet or prophetess, to include making it known to you and confirming for you who you are with regard to specific vocations and purposes in your lifetime.
Another job of the prophet is to warn you regarding what is happening in your life; times and seasons in which events will occur; and options you have.
Prophets tell you what is to come as it is revealed to him or her from the Divine Mind and Matrix. Additionally, the part of the developed Divine that exists within the prophet can speak things into existence.
Sometimes you already have a good idea what is going on and what you need to do. Since you are a wise individual, you desire confirmation to ensure you are on the right track. This is an acceptable way to live for so many feel they are on the right track and they are not. Confirmation can provide ease, encouragement and comfort when you need to make important life decisions.
I hope this helps you to understand the role of what some of us do here when advising you.
