God Does Not Change His Mind
Many false prophesies are justified by claiming God changed His mind about what was predicted.
Many false prophets today plagiarize the Word of God, declaring that they have private revelations from God, when these revelations are already recorded in scripture, and are not new.
The false prophets claim to have a special anointing that makes them more special to God than other people, and we have to pay them (make donations) to hear what they have to say.
They also run in packs, and reinforce each other.
Most false prophets speak in general terms, so that no one can question them.
Some will be bold enough to say something specific, but they turn out to be wrong. This is where “God changed His mind because we prayed” comes in.
Sometimes they will assign a date to their predictions, and if it does not come to pass, they claim it is because millions have heard their prophecy and prayed and repented, getting God to change His mind about the date. Most false prophets are a “dime a dozen,” and do not have that many followers.
If someone predicts a tsunami in June of a certain year, and it does not come to pass, you have a liar on your hands. I have heard this prediction, as well as one that the last Super Bowl game was to be a false flag attack. It has come and gone, and nothing happened.
Predictions like this come from the rumor mill, not God.
In the Old Testament, the punishment for a false prophecy was death by stoning. Today, they become self anointed celebrities, caught up in their own delusions of specialness and grandeur, and making excuses when their predictions fail.
True prophets are not going to predict the obvious, or what should be common knowledge.
True prophets will combine general statements with some specific detail.
True prophets are not special, and will not think of themselves as more spiritual than others.
True prophets are not asking for money.
True prophets also tend to be solitary, as they are set apart, so that they can hear the Lord better, and not be influenced by others.
Note about Dreams:
It is possible, however to have a dream that is true, based on reading what is true from reliable sources.
For example, there are troop movements in this country right now, so if someone dreams about troops coming into their neighborhood, it is showing that this topic is on their mind.
These dreams are not prophetic, as they are influenced by circumstances.
There are also prophetic dreams, but they must meet the criteria for accuracy.
Note about Visions:
Each of the prophets in the Old Testament, as well as the New, had visions of heaven, the Lord, future events, or end times.
There was something unique about each one, and each vision was not just a repeat of someone else’s vision.
There were sometimes elements that were the same, for confirmation, but also new information to be shared.
Note about Prophecy Analysts
These people study prophecy, and analyze current events in light of biblical prophecy.
This does not make them prophets.
They are similar to weather forecasters who see the data, and make a prediction, based on available information.
God’s Declarations, or Predictions:
If there is a positive declaration to be made, then it will come true, in God’s timing. WE can rejoice in His promises.
If there is a negative declaration to be made, God does one of two things:
a. He gives a warning, along with instructions to repent.
In this case, if one changes his ways, God will not go forth with the punishment.
b. He makes an announcement that disaster is coming, but does not give a warning to repent.
When he does this, the time for repentance is past, and no one has heeded the warning.
God does not change, once He makes up his mind.
He does not flip flop back and forth.
God does not need to change.
We are the ones who are supposed to change, in accordance with His Word, and commandments.
Scriptures (God is unchanging):
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Numbers 23:19
Psalm 33:11 states, "The Lord’s plans stand firm forever; His intentions can never be shaken."
"The grass withers, and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever" (Isaiah 40:8).
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?
But you remain the same, and your years will never end. dominion will never end.
LORD, are you not from everlasting? My God, my Holy One, you will never die. You, LORD, have appointed them to execute judgment; you, my Rock, have ordained them to punish.
God never changes. In fact, it is impossible for God to change.
The influences that cause change in your life have no effect on God.
He will never be stronger or weaker.
His knowledge and wisdom will not increase or diminish.
God does not compromise or change His values.
And God does not have mood swings.
Life and its uncertainties may shake you, but God-the Rock of Ages-does not move.
If you cling to Him, His strength will sustain you.
Think twice and contemplate, when someone says God has spoken to them.
Make sure they do not violate the scriptural criteria.
Many love the attention of being heard as God’s special messenger.
But they have not spent the time with God necessary to really hear Him.
You want the real truth, not the product of someone’s imagination.
Pray and seek God yourself, and you will not need to rely on the “revelations” of others.
