Some predictions are conditional, but others are not conditional.
Some predictions are not pleasant, nor necessarily what the predictor wants:
First Samuel 3:1 Now the boy Samuel was ministering to the LORD under Eli. And the word of the LORD was rare in those days; there was no frequent vision.
2 At that time Eli, whose eyesight had begun to grow dim, so that he could not see, was lying down in his own place;
3 the lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was lying down within the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was.
4 Then the LORD called, "Samuel! Samuel!" and he said, "Here I am!"
5 and ran to Eli, and said, "Here I am, for you called me." But he said, "I did not call; lie down again." So he went and lay down.
6 And the LORD called again, "Samuel!" And Samuel got up and went to Eli, and said, "Here I am, for you called me." But he said, "I did not call, my son; lie down again."
7 Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, and the word of the LORD had not yet been revealed to him.
8 And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he got up and went to Eli, and said, "Here I am, for you called me." Then Eli perceived that the LORD was calling the boy.
9 Therefore Eli said to Samuel, "Go, lie down; and if He calls you, you shall say, 'Speak, LORD, for Your servant hears.'" So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
10 And the LORD came and stood forth, calling as at other times, "Samuel! Samuel!" And Samuel said, "Speak, for Your servant hears."
11 Then the LORD said to Samuel, "Hey, I am about to do a thing in Israel, at which the two ears of every one who hears it will tingle.
12 On that day I will fulfill against Eli all that I have spoken concerning his house, from beginning to end.
13 And I tell him that I am about to punish his house for ever, for the iniquity which he knew, because his sons were blaspheming God, and he did not restrain them.
14 Therefore I swear to the house of Eli that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be expiated by sacrifice or offering for ever."
15 Samuel lay until morning; then he opened the doors of the house of the LORD. And Samuel was afraid to tell the vision to Eli.
16 But Eli called Samuel and said, "Samuel, my son." And he said, "Here I am."
17 And Eli said, "What was it that He told you? Do not hide it from me. May God do so to you and more also, if you hide anything from me of all that He told you."
18 So Samuel told him everything and hid nothing from him. And he said, "It is the LORD; let Him do what seems good to Him."
19 And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground.
20 And all Israel from Dan to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established as a prophet of the LORD.
Added to that:
First Corinthians 13:9 For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect...
Daniel 2:1 In the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuchadnezzar had dreams; and his spirit was troubled, and his sleep left him.
2 Then the king commanded that the magicians, the enchanters, the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans be summoned, to tell the king his dreams. So they came in and stood before the king.
3 And the king said to them, "I had a dream, and my spirit is troubled to know the dream."
4 Then the Chaldeans said to the king, "Oh king, live for ever! Tell your servants the dream, and we will show the interpretation."
5 The king answered the Chaldeans, "The word from me is sure: if you do not make known to me the dream and its interpretation, you shall be torn limb from limb, and your houses shall be laid in ruins.
6 But if you show the dream and its interpretation, you shall receive from me gifts and rewards and great honor. Therefore show me the dream and its interpretation."
7 They answered a second time, "Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will show its interpretation."
8 The king answered, "I know with certainty that you are trying to gain time, because you see that the word from me is sure
9 that if you do not make the dream known to me, there is but one sentence for you. You have agreed to speak lying and corrupt words before me till the times change. Therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that you can show me its interpretation."
10 The Chaldeans answered the king, "There is not a man on earth who can meet the king's demand; for no great and powerful king has asked such a thing of any magician or enchanter or Chaldean.
11 The thing that the king asks is difficult, and none can show it to the king except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh."
12 Because of this the king was angry and very furious, and commanded that all the wise men of Babylon be destroyed.
13 So the decree went forth that the wise men were to be slain, and they sought Daniel and his companions, to slay them.
14 Then Daniel replied with prudence and discretion to Arioch, the captain of the king's guard, who had gone out to slay the wise men of Babylon;
15 he said to Arioch, the king's captain, "Why is the decree of the king so severe?" Then Arioch made the matter known to Daniel.
25 Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king in haste, and said thus to him: "I have found among the exiles from Judah a man who can make known to the king the interpretation."
26 The king said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, "Are you able to make known to me the dream that I have seen and its interpretation?"
27 Daniel answered the king, "No wise men, enchanters, magicians, or astrologers can show to the king the mystery which the king has asked,
28 but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries, and he has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days. Your dream and the visions of your head as you lay in bed are these:
29 To you, king, as you lay in bed came thoughts of what would be hereafter, and He who reveals mysteries made known to you what is to be.
30 But as for me, not because of any wisdom that I have more than all the living has this mystery been revealed to me, but in order that the interpretation may be made known to the king, and that you may know the thoughts of your mind.
37 You, king, a king of kings, to whom the God of heaven has given the kingdom, the power, and the might, and the glory,
38 and into whose hand He has given, wherever they reside, the sons of men, the beasts of the field, and the birds of the air, making you rule over them all; you are the head of gold.
39 After you shall arise another kingdom inferior to you, and yet a third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the earth.
40 And there shall be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron, because iron breaks to pieces and shatters all things; and like iron which crushes, it shall break and crush all these.
41 And as you saw the feet and toes partly of potter's clay and partly of iron, it shall be a divided kingdom; but some of the firmness of iron shall be in it, just as you saw iron mixed with the miry clay.
42 And as the toes of the feet were partly iron and partly clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle.
43 As you saw the iron mixed with miry clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay.
44 And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed, nor shall its sovereignty be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand for ever;
45 just as you saw that a stone was cut from a mountain by no human hand, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold. The Great God has made known to the king what shall be hereafter. The dream is certain, and its interpretation sure."
46 Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and did homage to Daniel, and commanded that an offering and incense be offered up to him.
47 The king said to Daniel, "Truly, your God is God of gods and Lord of kings, and a revealer of mysteries, for you have been able to reveal this mystery."
According to what yours truly presently perceives, Republicans (as a political party) will lose not only the Presidency in the election of 2012, but perhaps even the House also.
Of course, there are reasons for that.
First of all, feminist-chauvenist, pornographically-mopheaded Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Michelle Bachmann, and even Sarah Palin cannot hold a candle in comparison to feminist-sexist shortcut-hairstyled clownfaces-displaying Rachel Maddow in terms of decent public presentability.
Secondly, was it not chauvenistically-deluded and wrongly-presumptive GOP hierarchy who imposed inferior-gender Sarah Palin as VP-candidate running mate with to-feminists-acquiesing John McCain in 2008....and lost....while maybe-Kenyan-born-or-fathered Barack Hussein Obama shrewdly (and in non-admitted accord with Biblical premises of Numbers chapter 30, Ecclesiastes 7:27-28, Isaiah 3:12, Nahum 3:13, First Corinthians 11:1-16 (KJV/KJ21/NKJV - not RSV), First Corinthians 14:33-38, First Timothy 2:12-15, and First Peter 3:7) rejected Hillary Clinton and instead selected superior-gender Joe Biden as his VP running mate...and won?
Was it not otherwise-quite-respected big-tenting, moralist-Republican Ronald Reagan who got the first inferior-gender [woman] on the High Court (i.e. Sandra Day O'Connor)...even though Barack Hussein Obama force-fed largely-complacent americans the two female feminists Sotomayor and Kagan sitting for life terms in the U.S. Supreme Court?
Obama's network media, directed by savvy Obama-nation operatives, has let concerned Republicans "blow off some steam" in complaining about the huge and growing deficit, and the intolerable forced-health-insurance-purchase and forced-insuring-those-with-preexisting-conditions wrinkles in Pelosi-Reid Obamascare. Besides Obama's media blaming corporations for giving large contributions to republican candidates, the same media blames those corporations for relocating resources overseas and thus depriving American unionistas of high-wage jobs.
All the publicity the media is giving to anti-abortion (and to a lesser extent: anti-homosexual) voices generally associated with the present Republican Party will probably result in nothing substantial nor concrete when pro-choice-against-abortion legislators actually attempt in vain and futile failure to bypass the Democrat-controlled Senate and veto pen of Barack Hussein Obama.
Barack Hussein Obama will most likely not have to mess that much with compromising republican RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) who subtly or openly but relentlessly declare: "The huge budget deficit and out-of-control spending is FAR more important than [sexual] social issues at this time."
Mere lip service will inevitably be given to recently identified-by-pink-concentration-camp-triangles-reminiscent, 'Don't-Ask-Don't-Tell' abolished, now-open-target, diehard homoperverts....who want to pollute, defile, and destroy nationwide heterosexuality-based families.....is easily though rather counter-productively compensated for by Obamination simply adding a "Significant Other" option to federal forms (such as Form 1040) requiring gender specification.
Thirdly, concerning foreign policy, has not Barack Hussein Obama [wisely?] avoided especially American-military entanglement with recent Mideast insurrectionist disruptions having occurred in Egypt, Libya, Yemen, and thereabouts...which is exactly what "grassroots" Ron Paul and followers, PLUS those of the Constitution Party, PLUS Obama's own democrat anti-war activists want -- which non-admitted antisemites not only applaud withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan (let alone Pakistan, which even the Soviets could not conquer) but are absolutely delighted that Netanyahu-avoiding Obama is not flexing Bush-like muscles in dangerous foreign situations, especially those which would be of survival-assistance benefit to Israel?
Fourthly, Obama is quite sympathetic and perhaps more with multi-state vicious, willing-to-strike, eager-to-trespass unionistas (as Rush Limbaugh calls them) on his side. If the governor of Wisconsin cannot get Madison police unionists to enforce curfews and expulsion decrees, would the National Guard (along with federal marshals, Marines, etc.) obey (or instead override) either the silence or suggestions of their Commander-in-Chief, to whom they are obligated to give required allegiance?
Fifthly, the ultimate "dagger in the heart" against a Republican takeover of the White House in the Election of 2012 will be something Paul Ryan, Michael Medved, Dennis Prager, Eric Cantor, Boehner, Hannity, and practically every other high-visibility RINO insists upon, which is to get voters in general to stop their dependency upon government-bestowed-and-depletable Social Security and Medicare, plus Raising the Retirement Age (to 70 and beyond) and initiating Means Testing as to who should and should not get Social Security checks, and how much should be eliminated to supposedly save the sinking ship of America's trillion-plus-dollar deficit .....all of which wrongheaded premises are diametrically opposed to:
Leviticus 27:1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 Say to the people of Israel, "When a man makes a special vow of persons to the LORD at your valuation,
3 then your valuation of a male from twenty years old up to sixty years old shall be fifty shekels of silver, according to the shekel of the sanctuary.
4 If the person is a female, your valuation shall be thirty shekels.
5 If the person is from five years old up to twenty years old, your valuation shall be for a male twenty shekels, and for a female ten shekels.
6 If the person is from a month old up to five years old, your valuation shall be for a male five shekels of silver, and for a female your valuation shall be three shekels of silver.
7 And if the person is sixty years old and upward, then your valuation for a male shall be fifteen shekels, and for a female ten shekels.
8 And if a man is too poor to pay your valuation, then he shall bring the person before the priest, and the priest shall value him; according to the ability of him who vowed the priest shall value him."
Certainly, the vast horde of Democrat voters - both elderly and younger wage earners - will soundly reject that when they are in the voting booths for the Election of November 2012! Even more devastating is that many Republican voters will also be adverse to that needless and irresponsible tinkering against Social Security funding so desperately needed and depended upon by impoverished seniors.
Social-Security-check monies to seniors who previously paid into such (to varying extents) through FICA deductions from their payroll paychecks are unique benefit-"income," in that such is not taxable, and seniors can save or spend it as they (not agenda-driven bureaucrats and activists) see fit according to their own individual and freedom-based needs, interests, innovative hobbies and inventions, etc. Not being taxable, none of it is involuntarily siphoned off by godless bureaucrats and deviant activists to non-wanted pro-feminist, pro-homosexual, pro-abortion, pro-atheist, pro-evolution, pro-cultic persons or groups -- and thus, not wasted on detrimental boondoggles nor revisionist and satanic antisocial experimentation.
GOPers, with their demonic and devilish pie-in-the-sky-by-and-by hallucinations of strike-it-rich gambling grandeur with self-employment schemes and/or ups-then-downs Stock-Market investing involving Madoff-destroyable stocks (of which 'All Principle Is At Risk,' and which are 'Not FDIC Insured'), who promote the heartlessly diabolical idea of depriving needy babyboomers and others of [vital-for-financial-survival] Social-Security checks, are the damnably-accursed ones who will be Divinely held most responsible for unrealistically and insidiously violating:
Ecclesiastes 8:7 For he does not know what is to be, for who can tell him how it will be?
10:14 A fool multiplies words, though no man knows what is to be, and who can tell him what will be after him?
Ecclesiastes 11:1 Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days.
2 Give a portion to seven, or even to eight, for you know not what evil may happen on earth.
3 If the clouds are full of rain, they empty themselves on the earth; and if a tree falls to the south or to the north, in the place where the tree falls, there it will lie.
4 He who observes the wind will not plant; and he who regards the clouds will not reap.
5 As you do not know how the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a woman with child, so you do not know the work of God who makes everything.
6 In the morning sow your seed, and at evening withhold not your hand; for you do not know which will prosper, this or that, or whether both alike will be good.
Haggai 1:6 You have sown much, and harvested little; you eat, but you never have enough; you drink, but you never have your fill; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; and he who earns wages earns wages to put them into a bag with holes.
Luke 3:14 Soldiers also asked him, "And we, what shall we do?" And he said to them, "Rob no one by violence or by false accusation, and be content with your wages."
First Timothy 6:6 There is great gain in godliness with contentment;
7 for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world; 8 but if we have food and clothing, with these we shall be content.
9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and hurtful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction.
17 As for the rich in this world, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on uncertain riches but on God who richly furnishes us with everything to enjoy.
Hebrews 13:5 Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have; for he has said, "I will never fail you nor reject you."
James 4:13 Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and get gain";
14 whereas you do not know about tomorrow. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.
15 Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and we shall do this or that."
16 As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.
The influential GOP-associated names I previously mentioned presume that children should not be dependent upon their parents, nor personally care for them in their old age, but turn them over to "Visiting Angels" and other impersonal eldercare/nursing-home imprisoners-in-effect:
THAT "get-out-and-earn-your-own-apart-from-parents" heresy certainly does NOT jive with:
Leviticus 19:32 "You shall rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face of an old man, and you shall fear your God: I am the LORD."
Proverbs 16:31 A hoary head is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life.
Matthew 15:5 But you say, 'If any one tells his father or his mother, What you would have gained from me is given to God, he need not honor his father.'
Mark 7:10 For Moses said, 'Honor your father and your mother'; and, 'He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him surely die';
11 but you say, 'If a man tells his father or his mother, What you would have gained from me is Corban' (that is, given to God)...
12 then you no longer allow him to do anything for his father or mother,
13 thus making void the word of God through your tradition which you hand on. And many such things you do."
First Timothy 5:8 If any one does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his own family, he has disowned the faith and is worse than an disbeliever.
....and the mindless brain farts of such despicably-subversive RINOs is instead an out-of-context, warped and twisted mis-application and mis-appropriation against the following Bible verses:
Mark 10:7 "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife...."
Ephesians 5:31 "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh."
First Thessalonians 4:9 But concerning love of the brethren you have no need to have any one write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another;
10 and indeed you do love all the brethren throughout Macedonia. But we exhort you, brethren, to do so more and more,
11 to aspire to live quietly, to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we charged you;
12 so that you may command the respect of outsiders, and be dependent on nobody.
"Be dependent upon nobody?" Can THAT ever be twisted to misrepresent what the Author originally intended! Don't depend upon pension-subsidized parents so you don't live long upon the land which the Lord your God gives you, so throw the money-supplying aging parents out with the trash? Presume (not "assume") that we are not interdependent upon police, firefighters, grocery and hardware store plus water and sewer and lights utility providers? It behooves heads-up-their-rectums RINOs to 'wake up and smell the coffee, ' 'Get Real!' and 'Get with the Program!'
Who ARE those anti-Social-Security RINOs trying to please, by preaching their false gospel of depriving the poor of crucial Social Security checks so they cannot pay residual monthly bills?
If they speak loud and long enough, Obama - who has already withheld Cost-of-Living increases from Social Security checks - might take them up on the idea of dismantling Social Security against his political enemies, overseen and enforced by his Nazi-Mengele-like, rational-health-care, death-panel bureaucrats against more than non-born fetal babes and hospiced seniors!
Are senile, sickly, feeble, crippled, handicapped seniors expected to start a thriving corporate business or become rent-and-lease-prices-raising real-estate tycoons to support themselves without dependable monthly Social Security checks?
How about those elderly Christians repeatedly discriminated against into perpetual blacklisted-reputation joblessless because of them adhering to anti-feminist-twit-submission, anti-homogay-sensitivity-inclusiveness, and anti-evolutionist-mythology/pseudoscience-blatter fundamentalist-orthodox Scriptural beliefs and practices?
Are "don't-become-dependent-upon-FDR/Johnson-legacy-government" seniors supposed to be involuntarily taxed and thus cultically donate to earth-worship whackjob Interior Department and Environmental Protection Agency "Save-A-Whale" and "Protect-a-Polar-Bear" nutcases destabilizing national security by locking out vast areas of drillable-for-oil Alaska land causing America to dangerously remain dependent upon foreign anti-Israel Saudi and Libyan oil suppliers....resulting in the economically-draining inordinate jacking up of gas-pump fuel prices across America...for the sake of a few randomly-deified species which (not "who") would in NO way would be endangered by a few pipelines here and there? Was it not Jesus who stated that humans are worth MUCH more than many sparrows? Priorities among the irrationally insane have to be readjusted!
Will all the above quotations from Holy Writ change the mind of talking-mopheads-imposing Hannity, self-confident Ryan, arrogant Medved, egocentric Prager, upstart Cantor, cigarettes-addicted Boehner, and others, about NOT conveying to the general voting public the horrific wickedness of misnaming Social Security "entitlements" and/or "welfare" -- then emasculating Social Security by proposing to Raise the Retirement Age and cut people's nest egg's short by Means Testing?
Isaiah 30:1 "Woe to the rebellious children," says the LORD, "who carry out a plan, but not Mine; and who make a league, but not of My spirit, that they may add sin to sin;

Ezekiel 2:5 And whether they hear or refuse to hear (for they are a rebellious house) they will know that there has been a prophet among them.
6 And you, son of man, be not afraid of them, nor be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns are with you and you sit upon scorpions; be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house.
7 And you shall speak my words to them, whether they hear or refuse to hear; for they are a rebellious house.
8 "But you, son of man, hear what I say to you; be not rebellious like that rebellious house; open your mouth, and eat what I give you."
Ezekiel 3:9 Like adamant harder than flint have I made your forehead; fear them not, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house."
27 But when I speak with you, I will open your mouth, and you shall say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD'; he that will hear, let him hear; and he that will refuse to hear, let him refuse; for they are a rebellious house.
