Prophecy is probably one of the most dangerous gifts, because false prophecy or a wrong interpretation could manipulate people to make the wrong decisions, cause massive disappointment or cause unnecessary condemnation.

Numbers, symbols, signs and words could be interpreted differently especially in conjunction with the context of a situation or a person's understanding. For example for one person water could mean a good thing but for another it could mean something bad. Just because God spoke or revealed something to one person in a certain way, it does not mean that this is scientifically the way that all future prophecies should be interpreted. God cannot be scientifically researched like a fixed system. God should be seeked as a living God with a personality, emotions and reason.

To find the truth you need to pursue God and ask Him for the correct interpretation.
