Overview on the Prophetical Books of the Bible.
The prophets were God's authorized spokesmen. They spoke forth the message which God has revealed to them. They also functioned as predictors who announced coming judgements, and events relating to the Messiah and His kingdom. A true prophet's prediction is going to be fulfilled. Failed predictions indicate the he had not spoken the word of Yahweh.
Predicting the future was never intended to merely satisfy man's curiosity, but was designed to demonstrate that God knows and controls the future, and to give purposeful revelation.
