What Should You Do With Predictions?

Kindred,


What should you do with predictions?  


Do you know?


Do you know the purpose of John the Baptist?  


He prepared the way for Jesus Christ and preached about preparing for the Lord's Judgement (through repentance).  


He was a prophet and knew of the coming of Jesus Christ.  


What did he do with his prediction?  


He prepared.  


How? 


By paving the way for Jesus Christ and his ministry.  


Now, what are you supposed to do with predictions?  


If you are not a prophet or an accurate one, you need to first discern if it is even future intelligence; substantive, accurate, or actionable.


Or it could be utter nonsense, superficial and misleading. 


Then, what? 


Take a good look at the source, his or her character.  


What is the purpose and consequence?


Where is it in the Lord's Design?  


"To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under Heaven."


                             - Ecclesiastes 3:1


What happens when the time for a purpose is all messed up?  


Let say, during the time of Leonardo da Vinci, you can predict one or two of his inventions and you messed with him to make those predictions come true, what happens to his other inventions?  


Or if you decided to disrespect the Lord's Choice and mess that person up because you do not like based on looks (too fat, too old….) or prejudice?  


What would have been the impact of, let's say, destroying breakthroughs in vaccines or treatments?  


What would have been the significance of a light destroyed?  


What happens when you disrespect and mess with what belongs to the Lord?  


Use predictions for your own selfish gain, selfish desires or greed in money and power?


Do you imagine that if you put in play incompetents or fools or megalomaniacs in power that you will get out the future predictions and reality of competence, excellence or wisdom?


So, garbage in and not garbage out as long as it is in future predictions or rather future delusions? 


What are you supposed to do with predictions?  


Do you know?


What is the purpose under Heaven?




Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
