The Purpose Of Prophecy

962.3Question: Were there any periods in history when people listened to the prophets?

Answer: Yes, in old times. But today we see how Kabbalists live and how other people neglect them. So I do not think that there is any attractive force in being a Kabbalist and even more so on the level of a prophet.

Question: Is the purpose of prophecy to warn mankind? Or is there some other purpose?

Answer: It is to educate. There is no warning here: “Look! Oh-oh-oh! What can be!” The prophets do not do this because they understand the nature of man and how difficult it is for him. They simply educate people by explaining the future of mankind to them and how to achieve it in a short, kind way.

Question: Why shouldn’t a person know his future? How could this hurt him?

Answer: Because he must form this future himself.

Question: And if suddenly he already had a prediction, what should he do with it?

Answer: Ignore it and act correctly. In principle, by changing our nature, through our efforts, we are building the future.
