How to Interpret "Predictive" Prophecies

As much as a prophecy looks predictive, it is not a prediction. God is not a fortune teller. He is not in the prediction business. Cast aside what the evil one does with his fortune teller - he is always trying to prevert God's Word.

"Predictive" prophecies are problematic. They caused (and still causing) much divisions and rifts in the body of Christ. It is important that we view "predictive" prophecies correctly and that "predictive" prophecies are shared correctly. "Predictive" prophecies may or may not occur depending on how the people respond to them.

It is important to avoid extreme theology about "predictive" prophesies. One extreme is to say "predictive" prophesies are not for today. The other extreme is to overreact - "run away" with "predictive" prophecies. These two extremes had caused divisions in the body of Christ.

Figure out the Condition(s) of the "Predictive" Prophecy

When one receives a prophecy, ask Jesus whether the prophecy is from Him, oneself, or from the evil one. If from Jesus, discern the correct response to the prophecy. If the prophecy is "predictive", figure out what is(are) the condition(s).
"Positive" "predictive" prophecies fail because the recipient(s) did not meet the conditions - conditions like not praying, not believing, not examining inwardly, not repenting of sins, etc. "Negative" "predictive" prophecies occur because the recipient(s) did not meet the conditions - conditions not praying, not repenting in behalf of others, etc.

"Predictive" prophecies are not one way streets. It is vital that recipient(s) does(do) his/her(their) part and trust Jesus to do His part.

Summary

In a nutshell, treat "predictive" prophecies as prayer requests from the throne room. For any given "predictive" prophecy - after deciding it is authentic, figure out whether God wants it OR does not want it, and then, pray accordingly. Do not live or die based whether the prophecy come to pass.

Again, God is not a fortune teller and He is not in the prediction business. Treat "positive" "predictive" prophecies as God's proclamations - these are what God wants. And treat "negative" "predictive" prophecies as warning messages - these are what God does not want.

If used correctly "predictive" prophecies are blessings from God. "Predictive" prophecies are God's Rhema Words used to alter history. God's People has the authority and power to establish God's Kingdom using God's Rhema Words as prayer weapons.
