Prophet Pat

Pat Robertson has allegedly made public some revelations he received from the Lord.  Their veracity remains to be seen until the date of their alleged fulfillment arrives.  If Mr. Robertson's prophecies don't come true what does that make him? 

Well I think a reading from the book of Deuteronomy can answer that better than I can:

"'How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the LORD?'  If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken.  That prophet has spoken presumptously.  Do not be afraid of him."  (18:21-22)

    am i the only one who sees the irony of this? c’mon. how long is the timeline for prophecies? 1,000 years? 2,000? 3,000? either the above quote is silly or the prophecies themselves are silly b/c who’s scale of time are we using? that of mere mortals or that of the all seeing god?

    well Isaiah wrote in what? 700 bc? Chapter 53 was fulfilled around 33 AD… David’s description of crucifixion in Psalm 22 was written around 1000 BC and was fulfilled around 33 AD…

    I think old Pat was calling for a tsunami to hit the Pacific NW either late this year or early next year (it’s in the article linked in the post)

    As far as modern day prophets are concerned… one of the dudes who founded the Jehovah Witnesses predicted that Jesus was coming back in 1914, oops… I think the Deut. verse describes this kind of ‘prophet.’
