Failed Predictions
nThe Bible does not make much provision for true prophecy that doesn’t come true.
nDeut 18 indicates failed prophecy is a mark of false prophets.
nThis is characteristic of biblical teaching elsewhere: 1 Kings 22, Isaiah 42-46, Jeremiah 28.
nThe book of Jonah does allow that a disaster prophecy might be postponed if the people repent.
nPresumably the same might happen with a prophecy of blessing if the recipients became arrogant.
