Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson prophesies of a mass killing to take place late in 2007

Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson, in his annual tradition of prognostication, says that God told him that a terrorist attack on the US would result in mass killings late in the year 2007.

The controversial Robertson said God told him during a recent prayer retreat that major cities and possibly millions of people will be effected by the attack which should take place sometime after September of this year. In response to some who have said that Robertson's prophecies had not always been fulfilled, the television evangelist said the heavy spring rains and flooding in New England partly fulfilled his prediction last May that a storm and possibly a tsunami would crash into America's coastline in 2006.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The so-called prophecies given by religious broadcaster Pat Robertson over the last several years and now the warning of mass killings in late 2007 set the stage for true Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Pat Robertson predicted in 2004 that President Bush would easily win re-election; however, Bush won 51 percent of the vote that Fall defeating Democratic Senator John Kerry. In 2005, Robertson said that President Bush would have victory after victory in his second term, which would be a real stretch of the imagination. The religious broadcaster said himself that he has only a relatively good track record and that sometimes he misses on his predictions.

The Bible sets up a standard for a true prophet of God, that's found in Deuteronomy 18:20-22. A test for a true prophet, one who speaks for God, must have his predictions come true in all of the details, not just close, with no misses or the prophet is not of God. Jesus Christ warned of false prophets in the Last Days during His teaching on the Mount of Olives as recorded in Matthew 24. In Matthew 24:4-5 also in verses 11 and 24, the Lord said that during the terrible time of Tribulation preceding His Second Coming, that there would be false teachers, false prophets and they would become very visible. Based upon scripture, all of us must judge each self-proclaimed prophet by God's standard, not our standard.

Prophets that proclaim they speak for God, but yet do not meet the standard set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
