In religion, a prophet is an individual who is claimed to have been contacted by the supernatural or the divine, and to speak for them, serving as an intermediary with humanity, delivering this newfound knowledge from the supernatural entity to other people. Not predicting the future.

I am still confused by passed and past. You defined passed as the past tense of to pass, and past as the time fore the present. I thought I could conclude that passed had to do with movement and past with time. I applied that reasoning to the exercise question and got it wrong,

Now that the parade has gone past, can we move on. I don't understand why past is used here. My reasoning was: now that the parade has gone by, can we move on?

Please help.
