  • No. I do however believe in observant people and people that are "in tune" to their surroundings.

  • absolutely. I agree with pp that it is really about being more aware most of the time. however, i personally dreamed about my husband years ago... and forgot until after we were married. i cam across the dream i wrote down which included a description of his appearance, his FULL NAME, his brother's name and appearance, his father's name, appearance and personality.. .in my dream was our wedding day.

  • i do believe in prophesy. i have seen it in my own life, with people prophesying things into my life, and i have also recently learned i have the gift as well. it is just something that has to grow and be cultivated. i dont know everything there is to know about it, but i do believe in it. if you want more info that i CAN give you pm me.
    i also am aware that not everyone who claims to be a prophet is one. my sil went to a lady who thinks she is uber-spiritual, and the lady asked sil what she wanted. sil says she wants to know what her gift is, and the lady asks sil "what gift do you want"? i dont think thats right. if you pick what you want, its not a gift. sil wants the gift of prophecy, so the lady says "start prophecying". every since then, sil has gone off the deep end with her "prophesying". so there are false prophets, and you have to let God give you discernment to know when you run into one.

  • Absolutely. My husband is more in tune with events in his life and those of people he has a relationship with, but he is not a prpphet per say. I wuld love to have a more in tune ability, but I do not. That is just not one of the gifts bestowed upon me. But yes, I believe there are prophets as well as false prophets.
