    Pat Robertson:  “There’s a Cloud of Wrath over America”

    Pat Robertson:  “There’s a Cloud of Wrath over America”

    Well, it's January 2010... time for Pat Robertson's annual pronostications for the year.  Here's what the Lord told Pat this year...

    "There's a cloud of God's wrath over America."

    "We have been blessed like no nation on the face of the Earth, and yet we have forsaken the Lord."

    "You can't have your courts turn against me.  You can't have legislation that is anti-God. You can't foster in your midst things that I call an abomination. You can't do that. And if you do, sooner or later judgment's going to come."

    "Fifty million babies slaughtered. It exceeds the slaughters of antiquity."

    Other thoughts from Pat:

    "How can we pray for his blessing when we have that going on and when we have courts that have ruled repeatedly against him?  We have the Bible taken from the schools. We have prayer taken from the children, and now we have perversion that God calls an abomination -- we have that legitimized and given a constitutional standing by the court."

    "We are engaged in a slow time of financial ruin.  This country will be ultimately bankrupt. It's just a question of how soon. We're beginning that. That's one thing that I can say for certain that is happening. It's a dangerous thing. It's going to hurt America very badly."

    "Can you imagine if you are getting Social Security that you would say I want my Social Security check to get cut?  The problem is so many people right now are depending on the government for their support, and there's nobody who wants to give up anything at all, and if anybody begins to suggest fiscal restraint, the people will rise up against them and vote them out of office. So you've got a situation where you can't arrest this problem -- the big financial problem -- because the people don't want it. Only a movement of God that brings in a spirit of self-sacrifice and a desire for the common good and some wisdom are we going to be spared this thing."

    "I would love to say the Lord told me it's gong to be peace and prosperity and it's wonderful and that God's going to bless America, he's going to bless you, he's going to bless your business, you're going to make a lot of money in the stock market and everybody's going to be happy. I can't say that."


    Kinda non-descript this year, I think.  What do you think?

      Well, last year he said gold would hit $2,000 an ounce and major storms would hit? If this was the OT era, the stones would be flying…just saying.

    2. Peter Hamm on Mon, January 11, 2010

      Well, let’s look at his track record…

      On second thought, perhaps not…

      That said… He has some good points this year. I don’t question that.

      And would a major correction be such a bad thing?  We need a God-sized intervention…

      Robertson fails the test as prophet, so we are supposed to disregard what he says, especially when prognosticating about the future.  It’s simple.


    5. Fred on Mon, January 11, 2010

      And then he bench pressed 600 pounds. smile

    6. Gary H on Mon, January 11, 2010

      In the past he’s missed it, but this time he is right on.  We can all learn from our mistakes - it seems like Pat has and has stopped trying to tell the future and speak the truth.  Jesus rebuked entire cities for their unbelief - what is He saying to our country?

    7. Michael on Mon, January 11, 2010

      There’s a difference between ‘this is what the Lord told me’ and ‘this is what I think will happen.’ I know God speaks to us today, but be careful when you speak for God.

    8. Brian on Wed, January 13, 2010

      I’m elated that HE has finally figured out he’s not a prophet.

    9. Shawn Wilson on Sun, January 17, 2010

      If we are honest here, he’s saying the same thing that several economist are about what is going on in America.  Is God speaking to them to?  As a matter of fact if you’ve been paying attention then you would be saying the same thing.  Just my 2 cents
