Q. You wrote: “When Israel failed to recognize Jesus as their Messiah on the first Palm Sunday, He said that knowledge of Him would henceforth be hidden from their eyes. Zechariah 12:10 is a prophecy that tells us when their spiritual blindness will be lifted.”
Also, 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12, Paul writes: “For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.”
Of course, this is a reference to the Anti-Christ and the delusion that will come over people so they believe in “him” instead of God. My question is, are these delusions “predictive” or “prescriptive?” Are these prophecies simply telling us what “will” be or did/will God actually “prescribe” them or make it/them happen?
