I can live with that.Tempo Gain wrote:I wouldn't call that "what God predicted did not come to pass," but "God changed his mind."
It seems like a fairly pedantic distinction, however. The message preached was certain destruction in 40 days:
Jonah 3:4b - Then he cried out and said, “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!”
So whatever term you want to use, prediction or prophecy or otherwise, God unreservedly said it would happen .. yet it did not.
