So I sit hit here writing this, wondering to myself just how exactly do people tell the difference between a prophecy & a simple dream.
We all dream, some of us dream more than others, some remember them whilst others forget before they wake up. Some dream of future events which may or
may not come true, some dream of fantasy things, some dream of the past, others dream of being heroes etc
The question is though what makes a dream become a prophecy ? Is there some kind of instinct which sets in that makes you 100% sure what you dreamt is
going to happen and if so how can you be sure that 100% certainty isn't just some warped hope of what you dreamt happening so you end up making
yourself believe it because you want it to be true ?
I've had dreams of the future, some wacky which will never ever happen, but I've had others which are more on the realistic side of things. However
I have never taken any of my dreams to be predictions of events about to happen despite me thinking it might be interesting if it did happen despite
some of them being disastrous, now it may be because I lack the faith to believe in dreams coming true so I don't believe they are prophecies despite
the fact they could indeed be prophecies.
So I ask you all, just how exactly are differentiating what exactly is a dream and what is a prophecy and also to those who may not have had
prophecies themselves but are happy to believe what others have dreamt as a true prophecy which has 100% certainty of occuring how do you choose
between what is merely a dream from someone and what is a prophecy ?
p.s sorry if this is the not the forum to discuss this topic about prophecies
