1) Forecasting the weather is a form of prophecy ... today using science as the medium ... wasn't always so.
2) The Climate Change saga is one huge prophecy.
3) Astrologers are prophets ... using the movement of the stars, planets, galaxies and so on as a medium.
4) Horoscopes and biorhythms are much more popular than listening to a sermon in church on Sundays.
5) The Beatitudes is one long prophecy.
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven. (Matthew 5:3)
Blessed are those who mourn: for they will be comforted. (5:4)

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness: for they will be filled. (5:6)
Blessed are the merciful: for they will be shown mercy. (5:7)
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they will see God. (5:8)
