    Thanks for the video Karl.

    I have heard men that consider themselves prophets that can not predict correctly what is going to take place in the next few months. Those kind of prophets seem to be numerous. They make vague predictions that no one can dispute because they are so vague. But what value is it to tell a city that it is going to be nuked and over one million die, if no date is given. Without a certain date, it spreads fear, but no deadline is given them. I did not hear of that city repenting.

    Jonah told Nineveh that God would destroy that city in 40 days. The whole city went into prayers and fasting. They did not even let their animals eat or drink.

    Jonah 3
    Jonah Goes to Nineveh
    1 Then the word of the LORD came to Jonah a second time: 2 "Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you." 3 Jonah obeyed the word of the LORD and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very important city--a visit required three days. 4 On the first day, Jonah started into the city. He proclaimed: "Forty more days and Nineveh will be overturned." 5 The Ninevites believed God. They declared a fast, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth. 6 When the news reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. 7 Then he issued a proclamation in Nineveh: "By the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let any man or beast, herd or flock, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. 8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. 9 Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish." 10 When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he had compassion and did not bring upon them the destruction he had threatened.
    NOW THAT IS A PROPHET

    And Nineveh was OVERTURNED. It turned over from an evil, violent city to one that feared God.

    David Wilkerson had this vision and was very specific, even to describe devices that play DVD's. But notice no prediction that would spread fear by claiming a whole city would perish and give no date. Instead of spreading fear, his vision inspires us to desire to know Jesus better and it gives us faith, NOT FEAR.

    Grace to you

      Amen and amen, Lou.

      Fear isn't of God.

      Take a look at I Corinthians 12:28:

      And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, helping, administrating, and various kinds of tongues.


      I believe this list goes from edifying the Body to edifying the individual (hence, why tongues is last).

      Prophets are second on the list.

      But more importantly, every gift is meant to edify. Edification produce faith, not fear.

      Thanks, Lou.
