I awoke this morning with the word “prognosticator” running through my mind over and over.
Prognosticator means a foreknower or foreteller who makes predictions or guesses of future events based on present signs. Synonyms include prophet, soothsayer, seer, diviner, fortune teller, astrologer. I got the impression from the Holy Spirit that the use of prognosticator that I was meant to discover was not a positive, but a negative connotation.
Turns out it’s only found in the bible once in Isaiah 47:13 and indeed it has a negative connotation. Isaiah 47 is a warning and so I felt led to share it with everyone. I present the Amplified version. I suggest that everyone take this to the Holy Spirit and if needed review this passage in other translations, taking it to prayer.
In summary, I believe the HOLY Spirit is saying that the punishment is now set. No ungodly prognosticator can change it by speaking “smooth words in your ears” telling you “things will get better” or “no judgement will come”. Individuals, repent now, before this occurs. It will occur suddenly and when you least expect it.
Lament for Babylon
1 “Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground [in abject humiliation]; there is no throne for you, O daughter of the [a]Chaldeans, for you will no longer be called tender and delicate. 2“Take millstones [as a female slave does] and grind meal; Remove your veil, strip off the skirt, uncover the leg, cross the rivers [at the command of your captors]. 3“Your nakedness will be uncovered, your shame will also be exposed; I will take vengeance and will spare no man.” 4Our Redeemer [will do all this], the LORD of hosts is His name, the Holy One of Israel. 5 “Sit in silence and go into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans; for you will no longer be called the queen of kingdoms. 6 “I was angry with My people, I profaned [Judah] My inheritance and gave them into your hand [Babylon]. You showed them no mercy; you made your yoke very heavy on the aged. 7 “And you said, ‘I shall be a queen forevermore.’ You did not consider these things, nor did you [seriously] remember the [ultimate] outcome of such conduct. 8 “Now, then, hear this, you who live a luxuriant life, you who dwell safely and securely, who say in your heart (mind), ‘I am [the queen], and there is no one besides me. I shall not sit as a widow, nor know the loss of children.’ 9 “But these two things shall come to you abruptly, in one day: loss of children and widowhood. They will come on you in full measure in spite of your many [claims of power through your] sorceries, in spite of the great power of your enchantments. 10 “For you [Babylon] have trusted and felt confident in your wickedness; you have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have led you astray and you have said in your heart (mind), ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ 11 “Therefore disaster will come on you; you will not know how to make it disappear [with your magic]. And disaster will fall on you for which you cannot atone [with all your offerings to your gods]; and destruction about which you do not know will come on you suddenly. 12 “Persist, then, [Babylon] in your enchantments and your many sorceries with which you have labored from your youth; perhaps you will be able to profit [from them], perhaps you may prevail and cause trembling. 13 “You [b]are wearied by your many counsels. Just let the astrologers, the stargazers, those who predict by the new moons [each month] stand up and save you from the things that will come upon you [Babylon]. 14 “In fact, they are like stubble; fire burns them. They cannot save themselves from the power of the flame [much less save the nation], there is no blazing coal for warming nor fire before which to sit! 15 “This is how they have become to you, those [astrologers and sorcerers] with whom you have labored, those who have done business with you from your youth; each has wandered in his own way. There is no one to save you.

July 26, 2022. You allow the enemy to accuse you. Yes, you have sinned, but My favor is sufficient for those who have trusted Me and asked Me to forgive their sins. That forgiveness is not based on your works, but is based on belief in what My Son did as the perfect sacrifice. His life paid for your sin…past, present and future. No longer allow the lying enemy to ask you to pay for what has already been purchased!
