prognostications (not prophecies) for 2012
Because I am not a fan of getting stoned, I’m not going to identify what I am about to do as “prophecy”. If you don’t get the reference, they used to stone to death prophets who mis-prophecied. I’m playing it safe.
Here are 5 things we have to look forward to in the next 365 days:
Americans will get all stirred up about the presidential election. Things will get ugly. But we will elect someone to be President. Half of the country will be sad, half glad. And little, if anything, will change.
The economy will recover, but only slightly. The recovery will be election related. Real jobs won’t be created and our country will improve financially, but only on paper.
There will be a major natural disaster. Lives will be lost. News coverage will be thorough; people will be shocked – for a brief period.
Scandals will surface regarding the behavior of well-known people – leaders and celebrities in our country. The general public will be surprised and disappointed.
Terrorism will be an increased problem. The Middle East will be rocked with violence. And chances are America will not be exempt.
Bummer, huh? In case you think I need to take a Xanax, notice the details of what I think will happen in the new year. It is the same stuff that happens most years. Nothing new. Ecclesiastes 1:9 “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.”
Now, let me predict with a little more certainty something much more important and relevant for 2012:
God will be good. He will be faithful. He will bless His people.
That, my friends, you can take to the bank! And if it makes you feel better, consider that a prophecy for 2012!
