Today, on the way home from work, I was listening to the usual radio program. During the segment of it I caught today, they played several recorded callers praising their show, and that’s fine — it’s nice to know what people think. One of the callers caught my attention, raised an eyebrow, and caused me to be a whole lot less focused on the road than I should have been.
He said, loudly and exuberantly, and to the best of my recolllection, “I got a message from God! I heard a message from God! His grace can change prophecy!”
God’s grace can change prophecy!
I can only assume that the prophecy in question was the judgments mentioned in Revelation; Revelation’s events are typically what the program in question focuses on anyway.
Certainly there have been conditional prophecies — the “turn or perish” prophecy was given to quite a few groups by the prophets of old. Revelation’s prophecies don’t have that conditional; they are prophesied as if they are going to happen, whether we want them to or not.
What do you think? Can grace change prophecy? And if that’s true, why are the Scriptures “a more sure word of prophecy” if they are conditional?
