Robertson: "I HOPE I'M WRONG...AND PEOPLE WILL PRAY AND (THIS) WON'T
From the desk of Steve Shultz:
CBN (The Christian Broadcasting Network) gave THE ELIJAH LIST special
permission to post this. I purposely used--as the title--one of the most
significant lines in this whole 2007 prophecy by Pat Robertson.
Portions of Pat Robertson's words (you should read it all in context of course) say--with great humility, the following:
Pat: "Sometimes I've missed it...I hope I'm wrong, and I hope people will pray
and that it won't happen. But nevertheless, that seems to be what's coming up."
Pat Robertson has always been a prophetic voice and a forerunner regarding
things to come. What a blessing this man of God has been to the Body. In fact,
through the organization Pat founded, "Operation Blessing," he's given millions
of dollars in food and aid to the poor.
He's earned the right to speak to God's people.
As for myself--As a prophetic publisher, teacher, and even as a prophetic
person, I like to point out the tapestry of how God's many prophetic people
hear. John 10:27 says that all God's sheep hear HIM and follow HIM (God and Jesus and
the Holy Spirit, that is). This is true no matter what our Christian
denomination is. The variety in which we hear is far-reaching...
Some hear what will be and herald it!
Others hear from God what the enemy's
plans are, and they call for prayer to avert those plans.
The trickiest part of
hearing God's Voice seems to be this--Sometimes, even among the highest level
prophets, it's difficult to know, the "IF" factor. If what
is seen, heard, or perceived is catastrophic, can we, the Church, prevent or lessen it
through prayer? Or--is what we are seeing, hearing, or perceiving,
something that will be--BECAUSE GOD SAID IT WILL BE?
When I figure it all out, I'll let you know.
For this reason, I have a simple rule that is first found in the Old Testament
(so it's really God's rule, not mine, of course). No matter how Godly and
accurate the prophet of God is--God said, "If My people, which are called by
name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their
wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will
heal their land." (2 Chronicles 7:14)
This means we have nothing to lose and everything to gain by getting in God's
face and asking HIM not to allow the very thing HE has shown us.
Abraham did this. So did Moses. So should we.
The God of "Great Grace" does, in fact, often relent from sending or allowing
calamity if we are a repentant people. So let's be repentant.
I would read this
word by Pat Robertson with a complete sense of soberness. Pat is, after all, a
Godly man who has spent years hearing God speak. Then, get in God's face, seek
repentance in your own life, and in the life of your particular nation. Ask God
to relent from sending calamity. The worst that could happen is that God could
say, "No," and if that were the case, He would still have a purpose of great
mercy and outreach, as seen in past catastrophes.
So in this case, as in all others, perhaps God will relent and leave behind a
blessing instead! Our job is to be humble and repentant.
God makes the final call.
The Elijah List & The Voice of the Prophetic magazine
is what Pat Robertson spoke on the January 2nd, 700 Club program, along with his
co-host Terry Meeuwsen (used by
ROBERTSON: Well, we'll be talking about that. And I think people, Terry, are
interested in finding out, since we're talking about 2007--I've been away for a
prayer retreat. And I've put these things out with humility, but nevertheless, I
have a relatively good track record. Sometimes I've missed.
MEEUWSEN: And without doubt, every year, as you seek God, I guess this is
His promise to all of us. But as you go away and seek Him for the coming year,
God shows you some amazing things.
PAT ROBERTSON: The first thing, Terry, that I think is God's Word to His
people, to the believers worldwide, not just here in America, and the promise is
that this year is going to be a year of extraordinary
And if I'm hearing the Lord right, there
are such extraordinary things that are going to take place: victory over demonic
powers, victory of healing; some dramatic miracles taking place in people's
And the Lord said it's going to seem to the
people like Heaven has come down to earth. It's going to be that good. It's
going to be really an extraordinary demonstration of God's power.
The other thing He said was that this is
the final year of the great demonstration of His grace
to the world. For the last 12 years, we have had evangelism unprecedented in
countries like India and Indonesia and Nigeria, and so forth. And CBN right now,
we have recorded somewhere in the neighborhood of 461 million decisions since
the fall of communism. Well, that is going to come, I think, to an end, at least
that great anointing.
Well, the other thing I felt was that evil
men; evil people, are going to try to do evil
things to us and to others during the last
part of this year. I don't know whether it'll be in the fall or September or
later on, but it'll be the second half, somehow, of
2007. There will be some very serious
terrorist attacks. The evil people will come after this country.
And there's a possibility that--not a
possibly--a definite certainty that chaos is going to rule, and the Lord said
that the politicians will not have any solutions for it. There's just going to
be chaos. And, of course, we saw chaos in the Gulf after Katrina. The
politicians had no answers.
TERRY MEEUWSEN: I think that that rang resonant in everyone's heart, as
they looked at it and realized that when something big happens....
PAT ROBERTSON: We're not ready.
TERRY MEEUWSEN: ...there's no solution.
PAT ROBERTSON: It's going to happen. And I'm not saying necessarily
nuclear. The Lord didn't say "nuclear," but I do believe it'll be something like
that that'll be a mass killing, possibly millions of people, and major cities
injured. I hope I'm wrong, and I hope people will pray
and that won't happen. But nevertheless, that seems to be what's
And then the Lord said
He will restrain the evil people, but He will not
restrain them necessarily initially. And He doesn't have to restrain
people. They're evil people, and they do evil things, and they desire evil.
The other thing on my heart and on His
heart is the nation of Israel. And what He
says was the United States pretends to be the supporter of Israel, but that we
are pushing Israel toward national suicide, our policies are pushing Israel
toward national suicide. And He also said that the policies of the current
Israeli administration are, quote, "toxic" for the nation of Israel.
So the last couple of years, He has said
that we're entering into the most dangerous time in the history of Israel. That
has been born out by this last war they had. It's clear that
another war, sooner or later, is coming.
But the word was that the
Olmert policies were "toxic," "toxic" for
the nation of Israel, and that the United States was feigning friendship but
pushing them toward national suicide.
So these are some of the things. The other
thing is that there's going to be a great anointing of
His Spirit upon His people. The believers are going to have just an
And the last word that I got was on New
Year's Day. And that took from the tenth chapter of
Ezra, when, you remember, the Jewish people had come back from
captivity. The Lord had given them a little respite, and, lo and behold, they
immediately began to break His Word and to intermarry with the heathen people.
And Ezra was overwhelmed, the scribe, and
he called for a national repentance. And he said,
"You've got to put away from you this evil." Well, I thought, "How
does this apply to us?" And the truth is that the Christians particularly have
intermarried with the evil.
We have television that is just full of
evil. We have motion pictures full of evil. Not only violence, but sexuality and
permissiveness. Then, on the Internet, we have all kinds of evil that people are
allowing themselves to get into. And then, more than that, there's this air of
materialism where we're caught up in it.
And it was as if God is saying,
"You've got to put away from yourself those heathen
influences that are taking over. Because I'm going to do something wonderful for
you, but it's not going to happen unless you put away the heathen influences."
So I believe that it's going to be--these
first few months, I'm looking forward to it. It's going to be an extraordinary
time, and we should expect miracles beyond our wildest
fantasies in the first six months.
And after then--chaotic. And we'll be
talking in subsequent programs about some of the things that you might do
specifically. But the idea is what the Bible says,
"Seek humility, seek righteousness, that you may be hid in the day of that
wrath." And I think we need to be....
TERRY MEEUWSEN: And to not be afraid.
PAT ROBERTSON: Oh, why should we be afraid?
TERRY MEEUWSEN: God is in control.
PAT ROBERTSON: God, He's in charge of the whole
TERRY MEEUWSEN: Exactly.
PAT ROBERTSON: And so, if you get blown up or something, you go to
Heaven, and that's the worst thing that'll happen to you. But we have evil
people in the world.
And there's a
cleric in Saudi Arabia who has issued a fatwa (A legal opinion or
ruling issued by an Islamic scholar) that gave Osama
bin Laden the permission to kill ten-million people in the West. A
cleric. He said, "Under Islamic law, I find that you have permission to kill
ten-million people." And one of the leaders of Iran was saying, "Well, if we go
to war with Israel, and Israel annihilates us and we annihilate them, if it
costs 18-million dead, it'll be worth it if we can destroy Israel."
Now, we're dealing with people who think
that way. The fact that they might do a job on Chicago
or Los Angeles or Washington or New York, we shouldn't be surprised,
because they're evil people.
TERRY MEEUWSEN: Well, they've said that's their intention.
PAT ROBERTSON: They've said that's what they're going to do. But God said
He's going to restrain the evil, but He isn't necessarily going to restrain it
from the beginning.
TERRY MEEUWSEN: Right.
And so, a lot of these things can be reversed. We just
need to do a lot of praying. But I think seek righteousness, seek humility, and
we'll be passing out some tips about what to do in case of disaster. I didn't
get a whole lot of word about natural disasters.
Last year, the Lord said the coasts would
be lashed by storms. Not necessarily hurricanes, but lashed. Up in New England,
lashed. Denver--well not coast, but the Pacific Northwest. And then, of course,
over in the Philippines, two typhoons, one right after the other. Coasts around
have been lashed by storms. I don't know that we're going to have a great many
natural disasters, at least I don't have any message in terms of that.
TERRY MEEUWSEN: It'd be nice to have a respite in that area after all
PAT ROBERTSON: Well, I can't guarantee it; I just didn't hear anything.
