Failed and False Bible Prophecies


Over the centuries Christians have stated that the fulfilled prophcies of the Bible is proof that the Bible is the infallible word of God. The book of Deuteronomy 18:18-22 clearly states that when a prophet speaks the words given to him by God, these prophecies all shall come to pass:
Deu 18:18 I will send them a prophet like you from among their own people; I will tell him what to say, and he will tell the people everything I command.
Deu 18:19 He will speak in my name, and I will punish anyone who refuses to obey him.
Deu 18:20 But if any prophet dares to speak a message in my name when I did not command him to do so, he must die for it, and so must any prophet who speaks in the name of other gods.’
Deu 18:21 “You may wonder how you can tell when a prophet’s message does not come from the LORD.
Deu 18:22 If a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD and what he says does not come true, then it is not the LORD’s message. That prophet has spoken on his own authority, and you are not to fear him.

The Bible has an abundance of false and unfulfilled prophecies within its pages, thus proving it is NOT the word of God. How then can Christians proclaim otherwise? Reason and logic tells you that they can not. Let us look at some of the failed and false prophecies of thhe Bible.

Gen 26:2 The LORD had appeared to Isaac and had said, “Do not go to Egypt; stay in this land, where I tell you to stay.
Gen 26:3 Live here, and I will be with you and bless you. I am going to give all this territory to you and to your descendants. I will keep the promise I made to your father Abraham.
Gen 26:4 I will give you as many descendants as there are stars in the sky, and I will give them all this territory. All the nations will ask me to bless them as I have blessed your descendants.

In the first book of the Bible we see a failed prophecy spoken not by a prophet but by the Lord himself. Isaac’s descendents never have flourished as the number of stars in the sky which is on the order of 10 to the 20th power.

Isa 7:14 Well then, the Lord himself will give you a sign: a young woman who is pregnant will have a son and will name him ‘Immanuel.’

Many Christians see this as fortelling the birth of Jesus, yet Jesus never has or was called by that name.

Isa 17:1 The LORD said, “Damascus will not be a city any longer; it will be only a pile of ruins.
Isa 17:2 The cities of Syria will be deserted forever. They will be a pasture for sheep and cattle, and no one will drive them away.
Isa 17:3 Israel will be defenseless, and Damascus will lose its independence. Those Syrians who survive will be in disgrace like the people of Israel. I, the LORD Almighty, have spoken.”

Damascus still stands and is inhabited by over a million people today. Isaiah 17 is part of a prophecy set within the Syro-Ephraimite war (735-732 BCE) Clearly, the prophecy predicted that Damascus would turn into a “heap of ruins” because of its involvement with the attack on Jerusalem. Indeed, Damascus fell in 732 BCE to the Assyrians. However, it never became a heap of ruins.

Isa 19:4 I will hand the Egyptians over to a tyrant, to a cruel king who will rule them. I, the LORD Almighty, have spoken.”
Isa 19:5 The water will be low in the Nile, and the river will gradually dry up.
Isa 19:6 The channels of the river will stink as they slowly go dry. Reeds and rushes will wither,

Well the Nile still flows to this day!

Isa 19:17 The people of Egypt will be terrified of Judah everyctime they are reminded of the fate that the LORD Almighty has prepared for them.
Isa 19:18 When that time comes, the Hebrew language will be spoken in five Egyptian cities. The people there will take their oaths in the name of the LORD Almighty. One of the cities will be called, “City of the Sun.”

The Canaanite language is now extinct and was never spoken in Egypt.

Eze 26:1 On the first day of the…month of the eleventh year of our exile, the LORD spoke to me.
Eze 26:2 “Mortal man,” he said, “this is what the people in the city of Tyre are cheering about. They shout, ‘Jerusalem is shattered! Her commercial power is gone! She won’t be our rival any more!’
Eze 26:3 “Now then, this is what I, the Sovereign LORD, am saying: I am your enemy, city of Tyre. I will bring many nations to attack you, and they will come like the waves of the sea.
Eze 26:4 They will destroy your city walls and tear down your towers. Then I will sweep away all the dust and leave only a bare rock.
Eze 26:5 Fishermen will dry their nets on it, there where it stands in the sea. I, the Sovereign LORD, have spoken. The nations will plunder Tyre,
Eze 26:6 and with their swords they will kill those who live in her towns on the mainland. Then Tyre will know that I am the LORD.”
Eze 26:7 The Sovereign LORD says, “I am going to bring the greatest king of all—King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylonia—to attack Tyre. He will come from the north with a huge army, with horses and chariots and with cavalry.

The primary reason is that Nebuchadnezzar did not destroy Tyre. It exists to this day in modern Lebanon.
Nebuchadnezzar did attack Tyre from 585-573 B.C. but was unable to take the city. Tyre was conquered in 332 B.C. by Alexander but at no time was the city destroyed. It exists to this day. According to the false prophecy found in Ezekiel, Nebuchadnezzar was supposed to completely destroy Tyre, it was never to be rebuilt again, but to remain an eternal ruin, and the King was supposed to get much wealth and loot from the city, making it worth his while.

Eze 29:9 Egypt will become an empty wasteland. Then you will know that I am the LORD. “Because you said that the Nile is yours and you made it,
Eze 29:10 I am your enemy and the enemy of your Nile. I will make all of Egypt an empty wasteland, from the city of Migdol in the north to the city of Aswan in the south, all the way to the Ethiopian border.
Eze 29:11 No human being or animal will walk through it. For forty years nothing will live there.

Never in the long history of Egypt has it ever been uninhabited for forty years.

Amo 9:14 I will bring my people back to their land. They will rebuild their ruined cities and live there; they will plant vineyards and drink the wine; they will plant gardens and eat what they grow.
Amo 9:15 I will plant my people on the land I gave them, and they will not be pulled up again.” The LORD your God has spoken.

The Jews have been uprooted many times in the past and the land is still being fought over today.

Jon 3:4 Jonah started through the city, and after walking a whole day, he proclaimed, “In forty days Nineveh will be destroyed!”
Jon 3:10 God saw what they did; he saw that they had given up their wicked behavior. So he changed his mind and did not punish them as he had said he would.

So much for God never changing his mind. It is but another fallacy in the Bible.

Zec 11:11 So the covenant was canceled on that day. Those who bought and sold the sheep were watching me, and they knew that the LORD was speaking through what I did.
Zec 11:12 I said to them, “If you are willing, give me my wages. But if not, keep them.” So they paid me thirty pieces of silver as my wages.

Christians consider this prophecy fulfilled by Judas when he collected 30 pieces of silver for betraying Christ. Matthew attributes this prophcy wrongly to Jeremiah.

Mat 1:21 She will have a son, and you will name him Jesus—because he will save his people from their sins.”
Mat 1:22 Now all this happened in order to make come true what the Lord had said through the prophet,
Mat 1:23 “A virgin will become pregnant and have a son, and he will be called Immanuel” (which means, “God is with us”).

Jesus is never referred to as Immanuel

Mat 2:22 But when Joseph heard that Archelaus had succeeded his father Herod as king of Judea, he was afraid to go there. He was given more instructions in a dream, so he went to the province of Galilee
Mat 2:23 and made his home in a town named Nazareth. And so what the prophets had said came true: “He will be called a Nazarene.”

This prophecy can not have been fulfilled for nowhere in the Old Testament does such a prophecy exist.

Mat 12:5 Or have you not read in the Law of Moses that every Sabbath the priests in the Temple actually break the Sabbath law, yet they are not guilty?

There is no passsage in the Old testament that backs up what Jesus says in this verse.

Mat 24:33 In the same way, when you see all these things, you will know that the time is near, ready to begin.
Mat 24:34 Remember that all these things will happen before the people now living have all died.

That generation ended and died out 2000 years ago!

Mat 26:63 But Jesus kept quiet. Again the High Priest spoke to him, “In the name of the living God I now put you under oath: tell us if you are the Messiah, the Son of God.”
Mat 26:64 Jesus answered him, “So you say. But I tell all of you: from this time on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right side of the Almighty and coming on the clouds of heaven!”
Mat 26:65 At this the High Priest tore his clothes and said, “Blasphemy! We don’t need any more witnesses! You have just heard his blasphemy!

That high priest has long since died and Jesus has yet to return.

These pages only contain a few of thewell known prophecy failures and falsehoods that are contained in the pages of the Bible. It is complete disregard for what the prophets say when Christians proclaim that the prophecies of the Bible have been fulfilled. It is plain to see some were false while others had failed and never to be revisited again. One can only reasonably conclude the the Bible is NOT the word of any God or his prophets inspired by Him.
