They get the information from Jinns.
The Jinns snatch the information from angels when these pass it among themselves, but since the time of Muhammad God has said that the lower planes of
the universe are more guarded against Jinns listening, so they only snatch PARTS of information.
They then pass this to the "oracle"/Soothsayer/fortuneteller who then mixes 100 lies with it, thus all these prophecies being so VAGUE.
Jinns are interdimensional energy beings created before humans on earth, who can cross over to our dimension and make contact with humans.
Actually anyone can attempt this, although I strongly advise you NOT TO DO IT.
(I once did it when i was 9 or 10 and I went in a kind of shock) - you know those OUIJA tables? Well, i also thought those are used to talk to dead
people, except that now I know for a FACT that you cannot talk to dead people, but those who you talk to are actually Jinns. And those who make
contact with people are mostly evil (thus being devils).
I tried that holding my finger on the top of a glass, and, before you say, I KNOW that peole tend to "push" the glass (its a reflex) after sometime,
because one gets tired, but what happened to me was not that the glass got pushed by me, it was literally moving away and I had to "follow it" until
it really escaped from under my finger.
This shocked me so much that I began to shiver and my heart was beating so hard I could literally hear it.
I ran away, went to my room and covered myself with several blankets.
What Jinns do, if one has a "contract" with them, is that they lead one astray from believing in God, in return they will "help" him with many
things in this world.
There are people who do very bad things to other people with the help of the Jinns. And there are those who can predict the future.
The reason why you do not find so many really successful people that benefit from Jinns help, is because in the western world the Jinn phenomena is
not well known.
In islam it is well known, but it is also FORBIDDEN - thus so few people who really actually use the help of Jinns for benefits.
