Pat Robertson Makes Yearly Predictions

Sunday, January 4, 2009 6 comments

First and foremost let me state that I do not agree with any new revelation. However, I do post on current events within the Christian realm. This particular post has to do with Pat Robertson making his annual prediction for the year. He claims his predictions come directly from God.

For 2008, he predicted a much more violent world, a U.S. recession and oil hitting $150 a barrel. Robertson's global forecast for the coming year was equally grim, predicting violent threats, poverty and misery. Russia, he said, "will be the most dangerous."

Robertson said "The Lord said the economy of your nation will recover" during a prayer session which he broadcast on the 700 Club. He also said "I'm flying in the face of all of the experts or most of the experts who say, 'Oh no, no, no, it's going to get worse,' but I don't think so." He explains this will be done by bigger government "The people will welcome socialism in order to relieve their pain."

In regards to Islam, he thinks that it will weaken. "The violence and the bloodshed has turned away many against this religion of hate and the Lord said expand your outreach to Muslims. They are ready to listen."

Israel "is entering a period of extreme crisis." He added, "A strong government that deals forcefully with the Palestinians will bring international condemnation and sanctions, but the Lord will uphold his people despite world opinion."

    I'd like to ask Pat Robertson how he knows that this is God speaking to him, and not the devil?

    I am not against new visions or dreams, however, if it comes from God, you will never be wrong, not even in the smallest detail.

    Anyone can make a prediction, I have made my own, but I do not say it comes from God, and I admit that if I am wrong, it is my own fault (whether it be from misunderstanding interpretation or whatever).

    I would be very skeptical of anyone who receives an "annual prediction" from God... I dont think He calls us once a year, let alone it be the beginning of the year.

    As far as a 2008 prediction, Peter Schiff (I wrote a post on him back in Nov.) predicted the economic slump back in 2006, so accurately he called specific companies. That doesnt make him a prophet, it wasnt a revelation, it means he is a very well educated man. Something we apparently need more of in America, and the rest of the world.

    I agree with Layneh.

    We cannot trust out dreams, or what we think we hear(from God).

    I believe that is why God gave us His Word and the sacraments.

    Something totally from outside of ourselves (from God) that we can trust in...absolutely...every time.

    Thanks!

    I think the man needs to repent of this. What he's doing is dangerously close to repeatedly blaspheming the Holy Spirit.

    Yes, Layneh is correct. If it's coming from God then it will always be correct. I don't doubt Robertson is a godly man, but he really needs to drop the prophet thing. He doesn't have the gift and he's making other Christians look bad in the process. haha...it does sound like he's getting a lot of his predictions from Peter Schiff. Ron Paul has predicted a lot of what's going on too. God bless everyone.

    I have long been critical of Pat Robertson. It seems everytime he opens his mouth he says something rather foolish and non-biblical.

    Layneh, Steve and Mike are all spot on!

    I did a blog post on Pat a couple years ago..

    I said it then and say it again, it's time for him to step down and let his son take over.
