Pastor Juan Ortiz with Occludado Hermandad, of Mexico, made this prediction on October 14, 2004. Forget the poll numbers and debates, God has told him who the new president of the United States will be this November. This bold prediction has sparked much heated debate within the Christian Church about prophecy and whether God really speaks to any man or woman today. There are even some people saying that to question Pastor Ortiz’ prediction amounts to racism and is judgmental.
Assume by some aberration of nature John Kerry doesn’t win the 2004 presidential election. Is Pastor Ortiz then a false prophet? Most Christians and non-Christians alike would say “Yes”. Their support for this contention is found in the Old Testament book of Deuteronomy. That passage basically says that if what a prophet claims that God told him does not come to pass, then that prophet lied. Back in those days, that prophet would then have earned the right to be stoned to death. Showing that there really are different standards for weathermen and prophets.
If Kerry does win the 2004 presidential election, then Pastor Ortiz is a true prophet, right? Not necessarily. Even false prophets can make a correct prediction of a future event. Plus, God gave his people five tests to use to determine if a prophet is a true prophet or not.
Does God still talk to men and women today? I mean really talk to sane people, with an audible voice? If so what does the voice of God sound like? What about people in other faith traditions, doesn’t God speak to them to? All great questions and I have the answers to them in my new book called HOW TO HEAR AND DISCERN THE VOICE OF GOD.
