The theme for Dr. David Jeremiah daily devotional for today October 17 2023 is ”Wrong Predictions” and it is a message highly recommended for today’s spiritual growth and upliftment.
There have been quite a few wrong predictions in history. In 1901 Wilbur Wright said that man would not fly for fifty years. Henry Ford’s banker was told by a lawyer, “The horse is here to stay, but the automobile is only a novelty—a fad.” The manager of the Grand Ole Opry fired Elvis Presley and said, “You ain’t goin’ nowhere, son.” And a Los Angeles surgeon said, “For the majority of people, the use of tobacco has a beneficial effect.”
Just as the Wright brothers, Henry Ford, Elvis, and the medical community were not afraid to go forward with their visions based upon a skeptic’s opinion, Christians should never be afraid of what critics are saying regarding biblical prophecy. We know that the Bible is infallible and does not contain a single incorrect prophecy; listening to critics should only increase our faith that God will bring His prophecies to pass.
As more and more people try to put down and pick apart what the Bible says will happen in the future, we need to strengthen our faith in the inerrancy of Scripture and believe wholeheartedly that it is true to the letter.
You have to take Bible prophecy literally, just like everything else in the Bible.
