1 Nephi 22:2 makes it clear that the
words of a Living Prophet refer to
actual spiritual and physical events.
 
  . . . Behold they were manifest unto the Prophet by the voice of the Spirit; for by the Spirit are all things made known unto the Prophets, which shall come upon the children of men according to the flesh.  
  5 ) Living Prophet ‛s prophecies are given to recognize
and prepare saints for “ future event ” and calamities.
 
     
  It is erroneously thought that a Living Prophet ‛s prophecies of future events have no value or effect on his own audience but are written for the benefit of future enerations when the prophesies are fulfilled. Can you see the error in this thinking ? ( 2 Nephi 25:4, 7-9 )  
     
     
  Don ‛t go that
way, you ‛ll be
in danger.
 
  I ‛m doing
just fine, let me
worry about
that.
 
     
  But it is also very clear that only a Live
Prophet can give daily guidance and counsel
to the faithful relating to the current
existing challenges and temptations that
are created throughout their lives, as well
as preparation for things to come.
