If “unprophesy” is not a word, we are going to need to invent it. I have seen entirely too many people running about declaring, “2020! I predicted all this!” Well than, unpredict it this instant! I have had quite enough already.
If you are the one responsible for all this rubbish going on, then you’re going to need to unspeak it all right back out of existence. The lockdowns, the really bad science, and the murder hornets were quite enough. I draw the line at the rumors of meth infused alligators and coked out feral hogs. Near as I can tell, neither of those threats have actually occurred, but they are being reported on and there is some pre-emptive concern. We are being warned it could happen.
A bit of a tongue in cheek post perhaps, but I am quite serious about this matter. Lettuce unprophesy. Stop speaking bad things into existence. Start speaking truth in the opposite direction! As Christians the power of life and death is in our tongues and we get to eat it’s fruit. It does say that in the Bible. Obviously we don’t really believe it or we wouldn’t be saying half the things we are.
It can also be kind of fun to unprophesy! Nothing confuses your enemies more then singing out, What a glorious day! I am so immensely blessed and just basking in the Lord’s favor. A good chunk of my cheerful disposition comes entirely from the Lord and the other chunk is mostly just spite.
Do you know who has nurtured and encouraged my faith in the power of prophecy, the power of speaking truth into existence? The mainstream media! I kid you not, I used to be very committed to “truth” and while truth is still important, I now understand that I don’t have to be “feeling it” and “seeing it” to believe it. The Bible also says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
The mainstream media is just astounding. The other day I just stood there with my mouth open going, you bloody liars, now you aren’t even trying! Special shout out to WAPO who has the rare honor of actually managing to render me speechless.
Much like the media does, we also have the power to speak things right into existence! Right out of thin air! Ex Nihilo. Well, not sports cars and cash, not like a wizard in the movies does, but you get the idea. Try to do it with more integrity then the media of course and don’t lie outright as they do, but declaring something like, “this is the day the Lord hath made, rejoice and be glad,” is perfectly Biblical.
So, lettuce unprophesy! It’s not quite as easy as it sounds because we people tend to go right for the smut, right for the stinkiest thing in the yard we can find to roll around in. I am chuckling here, but I’m quite serious about our propensity to chase after dread, fear, and loathing. Surely there is something in the world I can be offended by? Some grey cloud of doom hoovering over us? Some terrifying thing lurking right around the next corner?
Stinky things like murder hornets. Meth infused alligators. Politicians and congresscritters.
The Bible also says, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
I believe it is His perfect will that we speak good things over ourselves and others, and to bring a bit of heaven down to earth.
