‘Jesus Said, “It Is Not For You to Know”‘ (2016)

One sure-fire way to identify false prophets: their prophecies don’t come true. Like the “lady” who got her name in the news by prophesying that New York City was going to be nuked to stop that night’s presidential debate.

Remember Y2K? “Sell everything you own, convert it into cash, and hide in the deepest mine-shaft you can find!” Uh, what were you going to buy with your cash, after the world ended? Someone didn’t think this through.

Some of the people in Jesus’ time thought He was all about “restoring the kingdom to Israel,” and they wanted God’s timetable. God does not give out that information, Jesus taught us. Unambiguously. God does not experience time as we experience it. He is not subject to it.

Which makes it very hard for us, prisoners of time, to second-guess Him.

    Deut 18:21 And if you say in your heart, ‘How may we know the word that the Lord has not spoken?’— 22 when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him.

    You nailed it. As recently as yesterday, someone was trying to convince me of some scenario involving all sorts of conspiracy and intrigue. When Christ returns, this is a miracle and it really doesn’t matter what the British, the Russians or the Boy Scouts do. Until that happens, we have to live our lives and do our best. God will handle the rest.

    My younger brother was a programmer for Hughes Aircraft during the Y2K scare. He said it was a legitimate crisis but they worked around the clock to prevent the digital disaster. Dr. Gary North was on the wrong side of history on that one. And Al Gore became a false prophet when he told the world by 2020 the Arctic Cap would be melted.
