Prophecy means "to speak the truth" or "to proclaim".
'I Told You!'
“Oh yes. Terrible and horrible things are being manifest. I warned you of that in My WORD,” saith The LORD. “I told you that wicked men would wax worse and worse. I told you that the devil, in the last days, would run amuck because he sees his time is near.” Hallelujah. “I said those things to you. But have you forgotten that I also said, ‘Where sin does much abound, grace does much more abound’?”
