How do our modern day prophets compare to the prophets of the Old Testament? You know the kind, they proclaim loudly that dooms day will occur on May 21st (or some other prediction for the future that often comes and goes with no resulting fulfillment of the prophetic predicition!) People seem to search for someone who can be a predictor of the future, whether from reading cards, palms, or other signs and indicators.
