Prophecy is things that were foretold by God the things to come in the last days here on earth. The Old Testament was a foreshadow of things to come in the New Testament. It told of Jesus ( Our Messiah ) coming even before He became flesh. .Jesus said: " The Volume Of The Book ( The Bible ) Is About Me. "
it is a message from God, through his prophets, spoken to people. usually referring to the future. or a warning of what will happen if they won't take heed of the message. read 2Samuel 7 onwards. 1 Sam 28:5 onwards.

Prophecy is a communications means that God used in antiquity, and used for the last time through Malachi, and hasn't used since, and will never use again. There have been many false prophets, impostors who masquerade as God's true messengers. God tells us how to tell a true prophet from a false one. There are two tests: first, the prophecy must come true. Second, the true prophet must never contradict God's Torah and His commandments. Even if prophecies come true, or great miracles are performed, that is still not enough to conclude the prophet was a true one. If the prophet teaches to deviate from God's Torah, he is still a false prophet and must be killed.
