"Every honest man is a Prophet he utters his opinion both of private & public matters/Thus/If you go on So/the result is So/He never says such a thing shall happen let you do what you will. a Prophet is a Seer not an Arbitrary Dictator. It is mans fault if God is not able to do him good. for he gives to the just & to the unjust but the unjust reject his gift" (Annotations to Watson; Erdman 616)

Blake wrote a series of small books he called Prophecies; they were perhaps the Unholy Bible. However this post is not about them but about Blake as a Prophet. Some have said that Blake was the greatest Christian prophet since St. Francis.
