Strange Automobiles :
Prophesies and Predictions can be accurate. I give intelligent predictions credibility but guessing is like predicting life, don’t even try it. Sherry and I are the last of our families. My family died in order of birth. Dad first and I will be the last.
Sherry’s family did not die in order. My Sister in law (wife of my oldest brother) lost her whole family before she passed.
I just finished a Western book where a man ‘thought’ he had heard from God and moved his family and friends who would listen, to Colorado to build a town called Haven. He had said God told him that everyone who did not accompany him would die of a terrible fire. When that prediction did not come true, the Word from the Lord changed. This time it was when the comet passed all would die. NADA. After a while People became disillusioned and deserted Haven, the place finally failed.
All my life I have been associated with fundamental religious people. People who believe in prophecy. My dad said this about prophecy, “When someone says God said "XYZ." IF GOD SAID IT, it WILL happen, otherwise someone is a false prophet.” I believe that.
In my life time we have known people who predicted things, many said “Thus saith the Lord!” I sometimes smile at that, even in the 21st century God speaks in 1st century language. ;-).
I smile at the predictions of today. As the time passes and the predictions do not come about. They morph into another form, then another and another the believers follow along as if the past predictions did not count.
WE had friends, good people who believed seriously that the Lord had told him when he was returning and to meet him at a specific place in the Ozarks. They sold their homes and possessions and went to the place of prophecy in the Ozarks and waited on the Lord’s return. The date was changed several times before they finally returned to their home town (‘with their tail between their legs’) and started over again. Embarrassed to no end.
I am very skeptical of Prophecy and predictions. Some people put me in the category of Thomas (doubting Thomas), but I say ‘well maybe so, but the Lord loved Thomas none the less.’
I had to
laugh today, I just heard that there is false snow coming. It won’t be real
snow and will evaporate vs. melting and going into the ground. I
canNOT can wait. LOL
Forgive my ranting, but I have witnessed so many ‘false’ predictions and prophecies in the last 8-10 years that did not happen, yep I am a little skeptical.
PS: I keep reading that some smart guy says ‘Get rid of your cash!’ If you think you should, please e-mail me (or call BR549) and I will give you my address where you can send it. If it is over $1000 I will gladly come and pick it up! Just sayin’. LOL
