Tuesday Word Bytes; Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm!

I LOVE words!  I think language is the best part of being a human.  There's nothing as good as taking a new word and rolling it around the inside of my mouth and feeling how it tastes.


Todays word;
Fatidical (Fa-tid-i-kul)
Origin, Latin, fatum (fate) + dicere (say)

The ability to foretell the future either by supernatural, or seemingly supernatural means.

A seer, a soothsayer, an oracle, a medium, a fortune teller, a psychic, 

an oracle










a fortune teller








Beware the Ides of March












How do you know you can trust them?  Because you give them money?  Because they say you can?  Because they were right before?



 a prophet.

Ezekiel saw the wheel in the sky


Elisha gave a mother back her son

Daniel told the King the writing on the wall.

Did you know that if a prophet proved to be false his sentence was death?  Or course there were, and are, plenty of false prophets who tickle the ears of influential people.

Want to know if a person is a real prophet?  Look at their life.  See if they glorify God, adhere to the Word of God, hold themselves accountable, live a humble life, seek only the
 Kingdom of God.



What's your favorite word this week?

This is a difficult word, but you explain it so good.

I too love words...and this was a great tutorial on one...Definitely important to make a sharp contrast between a prophet of God and a seer....the Light and the Dark!
