Q. Recently I went to several websites to see what the Lord has in store for 2012 according to different prophets. To my amazement I have found different prophecies given by different prophets, running all the way from saying it will be a year of great prosperity to saying it will be a year of great turmoil and difficulty and just about everything in between. How can God say different things to different prophets for the same year when we live in end times and also we live in tough times. I understood that things are going to get worse before the coming of the Lord.
A. The simplest explanation is that some of these self proclaimed prophets haven’t really heard from the Lord, and maybe He hasn’t spoken to any of them. Personally I think your understanding of the future is as good as any I’ve heard from any so-called prophets.
