Amazin' ain't it?

I've been in a few church meetings lately and I'm struck by and even amused by what passes for "prophecy" these days...then again it makes me kinda sad that God's people need SO much encouragement to believe Him for even the simplest things. With that thought...here are some really good prophecies for 2008 sent to me via email.

THE TOP TEN PREDICTIONS FOR 2008
1. The Bible will still have all the answers.
2. Prayer will still work.
3. The Holy Spirit will still move.
4. God will still inhabit the praises of His people.
5. There will still be God-anointed preaching.
6. There will still be singing of praise to God.
7. God will still pour out blessings upon His people.
8. There will still be room at the Cross.
9. Jesus will still love you.
10. Jesus will still save the lost.


and the email I received with these predictions included this pearl of wisdom...perhaps the deepest thing said...
"God whispers in your soul and speaks to your mind. Sometimes when you don't have time to listen, He has to throw a brick at you. It's your choice: Listen to the whisper, or wait for the brick
I hate that brick!!!!" LOL Gotta agree wholeheartedly with that one! :)

PS I realize this post sounds cynical...its not really...

Now there are 10 prophecies I can totally agree with.

Do we wake up every morning and say, Today, I am going to make Jesus more difficult to understand?
I think it takes work to weed out what is His and what is ours that we try to pass off as His, sometimes with love, sometimes not. I have always said, When Jesus is coming back is not important - when He is coming back for me, is.
Hang in there, Girl! You have all you need inside - just do what you know...

Ame said...

Pia said...

i hate the bricks too. they hurt!

Joni said...

I find it sad/amusing what passes for prophecy these days, too. Seems to me that the prophetic in the Bible always centered around this message: "You're all sinning! If you continue, judgment will come. If you repent, God will forgive you and restore you to Himself." Don't hear much of that these days, for sure!

Thanks for the tried and true prophecies, though.

I do hate those bricks! Ha!

Not cynical, but a point well put.

Margie said...

Or why I am Catholic. We go to Mass to listen to the Lord through His Word and meet Him at the table of the Eucharist and prayer.

Simple and deep faith, building upon the foundation of the apostles. . .

How ya been? I have been so busy with family stuff (texting Jade about fifty times a day!!!) that I have not been out here. How is your business? And that baby that is not a baby any more!!
