for I have not sent them," declares the LORD, "but they prophesy falsely in My name, in order that I may drive you out and that you may perish, you and the prophets who prophesy to you."

What The Bible Says (All Emphasis Added)
"But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him." (Deuteronomy 18:20-22).
Then the LORD said to me, "The prophets are prophesying falsehood in My name. I have neither sent them nor commanded them nor spoken to them; they are prophesying to you a false vision, divination, futility and the deception of their own minds." Jeremiah 14:14:
'I have not sent them,' declares the LORD. 'They are prophesying lies in my name. Therefore, I will banish you and you will perish, both you and the prophets who prophesy to you.'" (Jeremiah 27:15. NIV).
"For there will no longer be any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel." (Ezekiel 12:24)
Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own heart, Hear ye the word of Jehovah: Thus saith the Lord Jehovah, Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! (Ezekiel 13:2-3).
"They see falsehood and lying divination who are saying, 'The LORD declares,' when the LORD has not sent them; yet they hope for the fulfillment of [their] word. "Did you not see a false vision and speak a lying divination when you said, 'The LORD declares,' but it is not I who have spoken?"' (Ezekiel 13:6-7)
“My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will not belong to the council of my people or be listed in the records of the house of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Sovereign LORD. Because, even because they have seduced my people” (Ezekiel 13:9-10)
"therefore, your women will no longer see false visions or practice divination, and I will deliver My people out of your hand. Thus you will know that I am the LORD." (Ezekiel 13:2)
Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. (Matthew 7:15)
For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive even the elect — if that were possible. (Matthew 24:24)
"Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good" (1 Thessalonians 5:20-21).
But there were false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies … (2 Peter 2:1a) [TOP OF PAGE]
Was Jonah A False Prophet?
A prophet speaks the word that God tells them to speak, and in this case God told Jonah to tell the Ninevites “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown”. However this served as a warning for the Ninevites. They “..believed God; they proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them to the least of them.” Jonah, unlike too many today, probably knew the Scriptures. He was very likely familiar with Jeremiah 18 (below) which told him that if the Ninevites were to repent they would be spared, which could possibly account for his initial refusal to go to Ninevah to give them a warning.. Since Jonah did not want them to be shown mercy. He really wanted Nineveh’s destruction, which was demonstrated in his behaviour when Nineveh was spared. [In all fairness it is hard to condemn Jonah for his dislike of Ninevah. The Assyrians were one of the most cruel kingdoms in ancient days, occasionally the impaling whole villages].
There is (luckily for us) absolutely NO occasion in history that God has not relented when man has repented and turned from his evil ways, a principle based on God’s character.. showing of mercy to the repentant. Actually it works both ways..
“At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.” [Jeremiah 18:7-10]
Which is reflected in
“Who can tell if God will turn and relent, and turn away from His fierce anger, so that we may not perish? Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it.” [Jonah 3:9-10]
However this DOES NOT apply to prophecies which have nothing to do with repenting and judgement… [TOP OF PAGE]
In 2002 Kim Clement said
“When you do get a word there is an action expected from you, if you don’t do it you ain’t gonna get prophecy, you can call me a false prophet I don’t really care, it doesn’t matter, it really doesn’t.” (The prophetic ministry of Kim Clement, Aug, 13, 2002 TBN)
In the words of Mike Oppenheimer of letusreason.org
“So lets apply this concept to prophesy God spoke. Would Jesus have been unable to be born if Mary did not say so be unto me as you say to the angel? Is God's ability to make things to come to pass dependent on our cooperation or on His ability. The fact that prophecy is an exact prediction of the future, it is not a best guess. When God said he would destroy the all breathing things by a flood would this have not occurred if Noah did not obey? Or would Noah and certain animals not have survived. Did Sodom and Gomorrah's fate lie with Lot? When God told Abraham the future of the nation Israel did Israel cooperate to be enslaved? Prophecy is demonstration of God's wisdom and power. When the tribulation begins is it dependent on us? When Jesus comes back to set up His kingdom is it dependent on what we do or what He does? When a prophet spoke of a calamity or destruction did it involve cooperation from those who heard it? It seems Clement has a different explanation for everything he says.
What is a true prophet? We decide by asking, “what does the Scripture say?” Giving an argument from human reasoning is not sufficient to arrive at the truth. We can only determine the truth from what God has spoken to us. Moses said “And if you say in your heart, 'How shall we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?--when a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not happen or come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him” (Deuteronomy 18:21-22). If a prophecy from a prophet failed to come to pass, the people were told to rid themselves of the prophet by no longer paying attention to him.
What is remarkable is the terminology used; they say their prophetic failures were only “mistakes,” not false. Jeremiah puts it this way “An astonishing and horrible thing has been committed in the land; the prophets prophesy falsely” (Jeremiah 5:30). Maybe God actually meant the prophets prophesied mistakes, because to Clement and others in the prophetic movement, there is no falsehood, only mistakes.
For those who want to justify this with the common excuse that everyone makes mistakes, even prophets. I have this to say: If prophets can falsely prophesy and still remain legitimate, how do we determine who is a false prophet?
If prophets are able to make “mistakes” how can we know what is written that is still future is not a mistake? If one does not need 100% accuracy in prophecy and can be wrong, how do we know what was the right prophecy and what was the wrong one?
The fact is that prophets have always been with us, both true and false ones. In Old Testament times in Israel when the nation was a theocracy, it was very serious matter to speak on behalf the Lord to the people. Today it is accepted with much less seriousness in the church. Essentially, there were two groups of prophets in Jeremiah and Ezekiel’s day, and the largest group was the false prophets who always spoke of good things of victory, blessings and rescues. It’s no different today”. [TOP OF PAGE]
“Many people use 1Corinthians 13:9 [For we know in part, and we prophesy in part] to legitimize today’s false prophets, explaining that ‘to prophesy in part’, means that the prophet can and may mix error with truth, that their own flesh gets in the way, and that we now have to excuse those who make “mistakes” when speaking for God.
Unfortunately for these deluded people are simply using excuses with no base to cover up for other deluded liars.
The word translated ‘part’ is the Greek word mer'-os, which according to Strongs
From an obsolete but more primary form of μεeι?μρ?ο?μαaι? meiromai (to get as a section or allotment); a division or share (literally or figuratively, in a wide application): -
In other words it is one of the constituent parts of a whole.
In other words God’s prophesies are usually only a piece of the complete picture. For example In Acts 21 when Agabus prophesied to Paul about his upcoming trip to Jerusalem, he said.
And when he was come unto us, he took Paul's girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles. Acts 21:11.
which as a very small piece of the larger picture.. and in itself could not possibly have told Paul exactly what would transpire”. [Kim Clements Latest Prophecy. Steve Lumbley, Apostasy Watch!] [TOP OF PAGE]
The following ‘prophecies’ are from Patricia King’s Extreme Prophetic web site
.. Whoops sorry! I meant STACEY CAMPBELL
I was blissfully unaware of this ‘prophetic site’ for a long long time. After seeing this video I would have been perfectly content to have never stumbled across it. It is nothing short of blatantly evil. I have tried to show it on this page but am unable to upload it, which probably has something to do with the fact that it is a huge 31 Mb file. However you can still view (or download it) on the Extreme Prophetic Site (The last time I checked was June 2008). The Stacey Campbell bit starts about three minutes and fifty seconds into the video. I also have it on file. VIEW
The owner of the blog. mark jr. (iseeitdifferently blog) where I initially saw the video of Stacey Campbell “prophesying” said it all...
“She shakes her head back and forth so violently that it looks like it’s gonna fall off. The interesting thing about this is that though her mouth is shaking this harshly and is turning toward and away from the microphone rapidly, there is no ascension nor diminishing of the sound of her voice. This is un-natural. Being the son of a sound man I know a lot about mics, modulation, singing too close to the mic and being too far from it. I know that the slightest movement of the mic will cause your voice to lose volume in amplifiers. Bringing it too close makes the speakers fuzzy. None of this is recorded while she “prophesies”. You’ll have to listen to Pat King talk for a few minutes, which is quite nauseating in itself, but just hang on for a little over 5 minutes. It gets real good after that…
For those of you who have never been a part of this “prophetic movement” as I have been, this will shock you out of your skin.
In my opinion, it is simply satanic that she is able to do this. This kind of violent and spasmodic behavior is never found in the bible’s prophets, but is found in every satanic cult you can think of ranging from Satanism, Wicca, Hinduism and many others. This is a disgrace to the Spirit of God”. [TOP OF PAGE]
Breakthrough and Breakout
The Lord is calling His people to experience great breakthrough in the coming months. There will be increased pressures and resistance in the spirit realm and natural circumstances will press hard against many…BUT, the Lord will give GREAT VICTORIES. He is taking His people to another level of experiential victory.
Contending for the Airwaves
February 2004 [2004-02-22]
“The Lord is going to launch many of His people into strategic positions that will capture the airwaves… A further thrust of believers will be launched to conquer the airwaves and to influence media around the time when Mel Gibson’s movie, The Passion of The Christ launches in the theatres.

The healing room ministries that I have raised up all around the world will increase exponentially in miracle testimonies during the next 6 months. The prophetic gift and words of knowledge will also be used powerfully to launch healings. Stir up the healing anointing within you and move forward now to serve those who are suffering.

Prophetic Directives For 2004
December 2003 [2003-12-28]
“1. RAISING UP OF PRAISE WARRIORS
In 2004 there is going to be a shift of emphasis from prayer to praise. The prayer and intercession movement will be sustained and will continue to mature but intercessors will find themselves coming under a mantle of praise during prayer meetings and especially during times of “warfare prayer”. High Praise will be the greatest warfare weapons of the church in 2004. The Lord is leading His body into to a new level of confidence in warfare that will bring forth a swift accomplishment of victory through praise. Believers will congregate for gatherings of praise, oftentimes for 24-hour periods. As a result, many individuals, local churches, and regions will experience immediate breakthroughs”.
“ EVANGELISM EMPHASIS
The Body of Christ in 2004 is going to have a great stirring to evangelism and leaders will be receiving creative strategies for reaching the lost. Prophetic and power evangelism will be key tools for evangelistic harvest during this year. 2004 will see the first fruits of the harvest and there will be a significant further increase in 2005. Training and equipping for Prophetic and Power evangelism in 2004 will be an emphasis for many churches and individuals”.
“ CHILDREN BEING RAISED UP AS THE LORD’S WARRIORS
Children will be significantly touched by the Lord in 2004. The church is being called to focus on ministering to children. Little ones will be receiving clear visions and revelation of the Lord, His Kingdom, angels and other heavenly things…. Children will be used greatly in prophetic and power harvesting in 2004”.

The Perfect Storm is About to Hit!
June 2006 [2006-06-15]
My "word in season" this month is actually quite short--short but sweet. The Lord told me that the summer of 2006 is going to sizzle. I mean really sizzle! It's going to sizzle with the supernatural. I believe the Lord has told me that, "In ninety days (June, July, August) there will be ninety days of unprecedented supernatural activity worldwide." Get Ready, Get Ready, Get Ready! Approximately 90 days from now, (June, July, and August) there will be a supernatural release from Heaven. It will be a 90-day "rush" of Holy Spirit power similar to the original Day of Pentecost. This "mighty, RUSHING wind" will release upon the worldwide church a sizzling 90-day period of...
Unprecedented Worldwide Healings!
Unprecedented Worldwide Signs!
Unprecedented Worldwide Wonders!
Miracles, Miracles, and More Miracles!
But even greater than this outpouring of healings, signs, and wonders will be an unprecedented worldwide release of miracles--90 days of genuine miracles of all kinds, miracles of all shapes, and miracles of all sizes. The summer of 2006 will be a season of sizzling worldwide miracles that are unprecedented, unparalleled, and unmatched: …The Lord would say, "There will be an unprecedented worldwide release of miracles. All nations shall know that I am God!" (Emphasis in Original)
The Perfect Storm Is On Its Way! So beloved, enjoy the next 90 days--there will be 90 days of "calm" before this wonderful supernatural 90-day "storm" of miracles strikes the earth. The perfect storm is on its way! People will be changed, cities will be changed, and nations will be changed! Get ready! [TOP OF PAGE]
- Prophetic Insights for 2005
January 2005 [2005-01-24]
Matt Sorger says that
“Over the last several years I have received a special visitation from the Lord on New Year's Eve. When the clock strikes 12 midnight the Glory of God comes upon me and the Lord begins to speak to me for the coming year”.
What the Lord supposedly said for the year 2005 was largely very general. However point number 1 was
“This will be a year of the Double Portion. There will be a double portion blessing released upon many as seen in 2 Kings 2:9 with Elijah and Elisha. We will see double the miracles this year than last. Ministries will double in effectiveness and size, the level of the anointing will double, along with His power and presence in our lives. I also saw a doubling of creative miracles”.
Again like most of these fakes, Matt has no idea how the Bible uses the word ‘Anointing’ and who and what were anointed in the Scriptures. See The Anointing.
11. I saw the Cave of Adullum with David and his mighty men being assembled. God is bringing together a great army made of those who are unsatisfied and spiritually "frustrated" in a good way with the current condition of the church. God is bringing together those with a like heart and spirit that have a desire to see God's Kingdom established in true power and righteousness on the earth.
Point number 11 mentioned the Cave of Adullum, which was a real place mentioned in connection with King David when he ran from Achish the king of Gath... It was certainly not a high point of David’s life. Certainly, even if God is raising up His own people it will not include these false prophets. See Ezekiel 13:9. [TOP OF PAGE]
3 dreams on Entertainment, Media, Hollywood
“Norm Strauss is a friend of ours and a well known musician, song writer and worship leader. The following are three dreams he has had concerning the media/Hollywood/entertainment industry that I believe you will find fascinating. Keep this topic in your prayers”. Patricia King
However this is a prophecy website so.. Anyway after describing a dream which involved Freddie Mercury making passes at him, Norm Strauss states (Emphasis Added)
Suddenly the Lord spoke to me and asked me that my job was to warn Mercury that his homosexual lifestyle was going to kill him soon and that his sins were an affront to God. (Mercury died about 9 years ago from AIDS) The Lord asked me, "Now what words will you use, without sounding religious or offensive to tell him that he will soon die in his sins unless he repents?
How in Heavens name can someone tell some else that their sins are an affront to God and their lifestyle is going to kill them soon, without sounding ‘religious and offensive’. No matter how much your caring for the person shows through you are going to, at the very least, sound ‘religious’.
As an aside Strauss goes on to say that a fellow band member Jim Rodgers
“was on a recent flight from France to England, sat right next to (rubbed shoulders with) Robert Plant. Lead singer of Led Zeppelin! They had a great conversation during which Plant mentioned that Zeppelin's longtime bassist, John Paul Jones has become a born again Christian. Jones latest album is called 'Thunderthief' (a reference to 'Sons of Thunder?) and includes the songs 'Down to the river to pray' and 'Freedom song'”.
Did this great conversation take account of Led Zeppelin’s fascination with the occult, the Joujoukan cult and the music of Pan and the results thereof? Perhaps it included Jimmy Page’s legendary involvement in the occult, that he owns and operates The Equinox, one of the largest occult bookstores in England and purchased Boleskine, Aleister Crowley's old home on the shores of the famous Loch Ness in Scotland.. Do a search (Ctrl F) on Page and Plant on these pages... Rock and The Occult and Rock and Christ
On the site http://worship.newlife.bc.ca, in an article by Norm Strauss entitled Dwelling Among, he mentions that
“..one of the things I have been discovering is that God is not limited to being active only at church or conference events. In fact, I have found out that the Holy Spirit likes to hang out at folk clubs, festivals, music industry trade shows, blues bars, coffee houses, songwriting forums, recording studios and house parties. (And I have the feeling that that list is not exhaustive!) He seems to not only want to just hang out there He actually seems interested in speaking at those types of gatherings and having His voice heard”
Further down he says…
“Some of my most powerful times of worship and hearing God's voice have been in non-Christian venues of music and art. Some of my good friends are non-Christian musicians. I go to their gigs, and they come to mine. Occasionally, I have invited them to my church. Occasionally they come. But whats more important is that I have a good relationship with them and have been invited to take part in their lives. This is what I believe Jesus would do and what we are all to have a part in”.
“Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders”
is the founder and Bishop of the major ministries of Christian International. The following ‘prophecies’ are from Bill Hamon’s website [www.christianinternational.org/articles/WOL2006.html]. However the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders (I am trying not to laugh at the pomposity. They really do call it that) released the following proviso on January 8-9, 2006..
Differing variables can affect the timing and/or fulfillment of these words:
1. All prophecy not contained in scripture is conditional.
2. The timing in which the prophecy comes to pass may not simply occur in a one year time-frame.
3. It is possible that the prophetic warnings will cause either the person or corporate nation to repent and thus turn away the prophesied judgment. Biblically this happened when Jonah prophesied to Nineveh and the city repented causing God to relent and not destroy the city.
Wrong! A prophet is a person who is a proclaimer of the will of God, which often takes the form of predicting what will happen in the future. Either way, a prophet speaks for God. The prophecy comes directly from God and is a demonstration of His wisdom and power. There is no ‘conditional’ about it’, unless God is not sure what these things are going to come to pass or if they are at all.
Point three above shows a remarkable lack of Biblical understanding.. See Was Jonah a false prophet? (At the top of the page)
The following prophecy by Hamon is entitled A Kingdom Fix in 2006 – Destroying the Carnal Mix and Activating the Miraculous. Among other things he says
2006 will be a year of the arrogant pride of man being humbled
America will experience God’s sovereign power of revival to righteousness and judgment on national sins.
The nation of Israel will have a great shake up for a wake up call to turn to God for sovereign help.
“Now, Lord, I ask you right now to put that catalytic germinating activating bringing forth anointing in everyone here and let it start working that everyone here before the year is out will be flowing like a river in the prophetic.” (National School Of The Prophets, Mobilizing The Prophetic Office Bill Hamon, 5/12/00, Session 11)
And flow it does, unceasingly... in an endless torrent of mind numbing garbage [TOP OF PAGE]
‘Apostle-Prophet’ BILL LACKIE
Along with the usual pronouncements about the year 2006,
“2006 is a year of advancement of the Kingdom of God through politics. He is spreading the Kingdom message throughout the World”. Lackie also said (talking about Jesus standing in the center of a very large stadium in heaven connected to a similar stadium on earth.
“Jesus begins to call out the NEW NAME of the saint standing in the midst of the heavenly host. When he calls out the new name the person begins to vibrate from within and a heavenly light begins to permeate the cells of their body. As it expands from the inside out it explodes into a very bright light that extends approximately 50 feet radiating all around the person. This saint with a new name is transformed into a new warrior with great resolve. They understand their new name. They answer to their new name. They realize the new name represents who they have been all along but they are now this name all over through and through…”
Which brings me to the inescapable conclusion that Lackie has been smoking the same stuff that Lewis Carroll did. A Grinning Cheshire Cat anyone? [TOP OF PAGE]
Sheets is Senior Pastor of Springs Harvest Fellowship in Colorado Springs. In 2005 he released a book [co-authored with Chuck Pierce] called Releasing The Prophetic Destiny of a Nation (Good Grief!). The write up on Armageddon Books says
“At the same moment, God issued a separate call to two men---prophet Chuck Pierce and pastor Dutch Sheets---to heal the United States. As a prophetic act to realign our country to His covenant plan, the duo rallied apostles, prophets and intercessors from state-to-state to break the grip of demonic strongholds. Releasing the Prophetic Destiny of a Nation is the remarkable story behind their 50-state roadtrip to restore revival to America. Endowed with God-given keys of authority to reconcile America to its heavenly mandate, the two chronicle their efforts to purge the land of territorial and generational sin. Now is the time and season for a warfare anointing to rest upon America”
Doesn’t look like that 50 state road trip made much of an impact on restoring revival to this country. Sadly most people are not even dimly aware of what a revival is.. If Sheets and Pierce were Endowed with God-given keys of authority to reconcile America to its heavenly mandate.. I guess they (and God) failed miserably... Please read Is it Too Late For America?
During this 50 States Tour of 2004 they had many ‘prophetic insights’ about Wisconsin.. One line read
Seems to me that if God is trying to do something and not succeeding we may as well pack it in and go home... He is no longer The God of the Old Testament who once said...
Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." [Matthew 19:26]
I know that thou canst do all things, And that no purpose of thine can be restrained. [Job 42:2]
"He is going to take that Supreme Court he is going to turn that inside out he is going to pray that strong man off of that thing and he is going to bring the synergistic anointing of intercession and the prophetic anointing to break to judge to decree I tell you what there are lots of people going in and out of there every time another one goes in there and make decrees at that stronghold of the enemy there is another crack in that foundation there is another piece of anointing released and I want to tell you right now that thing that stronghold is coming down." (Dutch Sheets, National School Of The Prophets-Mobilizing The Prophetic Office, May 12, 2:30, 2002)
The Shift of '06 on Bill Hamon’s web site
The third and sixteenth points in a long litany of what God was going to do in 2006 were
3. "I must bring further changing of paradigms, not just to those who have not been moving in the flow of My spirit, but even to those who are in the flow of My Spirit." I heard Him say, "Restructure, restructure, restructure." “Ministries will restructure, churches will restructure, businesses will restructure, individuals will restructure (the way they do things, their time, the way they think, the way they operate), families will restructure”. [www.propheciesofrevelation.org/false_teachers-prophets5_bhamon.php. Bill Hamon. Wolves in Sheep's Clothing. The Elijah List.http://www.propheciesofrevelation.org/false_teachers-prophets5_bhamon.php]
16. "This is the year that the lid comes off of the youth movement." “I saw a giant pressure cooker, shaking and ready to explode. Suddenly the lid blew off and the contents flew everywhere. The Lord then made the above statement. The shift this year will be monumental. Shift with Him and see your greatest year ever”.
On the Elijahlist web site Sheets claims that this prophecy has been fulfilled. In his words.
“I prophesied in January 2006, that the lid was coming off of the youth movement (teens and 20's) that year. It happened. I recently heard Cindy Jacobs say at least 100 college campuses in America now have 24/7 prayer. Just last week, I heard of three colleges that are experiencing many conversions and baptizing students in campus fountains! I was with my dear friends Karen Wheaton and Damon Thompson in Cleveland, TN, and Hamilton, AL, last week ministering to young people and youth pastors. I have never seen such passion. Karen's ministry, The Ramp, is definitely one of the seeds--maybe the foremost seed--of this awakening. It is incredible”
Lets see.. Three colleges are experiencing conversions and baptizing students and an unsubstantiated report that 100 college campuses in America now have 24/7 prayer. Even if this were true, doesn’t it strike anyone that there is a huge chasm between an exploding pressure cooker and three colleges baptizing people?
He also says
“I believe the Lord revealed to me that on 07/07/07, God is offering America the opportunity to end our covenant/marriage with Baal and re-establish our covenant with God as a nation. I am not implying that the full fruit of this will be seen immediately but that the stronghold can be broken and change will follow”. [Prayer Points from Dutch Sheets. Prayer Point 2: The Coming Youth Revival. http://www.elijahlist.com/words/display_word/5068]
Additionally Steve Muse of Eastern Regional Watch tells of checking out a Dutch Sheets meeting in Albany, NY on January 15, 2004. In his words...
“we watched two Native Americans, each from the opposite corners of the state, come together holding a talisman and form a spiritual portal encouraging the leadership at that meeting to walk through insuring that this would bring them into a higher spiritual realm. I was greatly saddened to watch most of the pastors choose to walk through this portal which was really a form of witchcraft, an initiation into a spiritual realm, but with what spirits? There were a few that seem extremely agitated by what they were witnessing; maybe there were some using discernment after all.”

‘Apostle’ JANE HAMON
2006 is a year that God is positioning us for advancement]
“There's not just one shift, but many different areas that we are going to need to make a shift in. God is going to shift us individually, corporately, generationally, and nationally. Each and every one of us has got to be at that place where we really are dealing with lordship issues of Jesus Christ. God is asking us to make these shifts so that we can be positioned for advancement and thrusting forward”.
She compared this shifting with the computer shift key which “takes us up to a higher level”. [TOP OF PAGE]

Transcript from Word for 2006 - “Start the Year Off Right,” Jan. 8, 2006.
This was a very long “prophecy”. However a couple of points struck me.. For example..
“… God wants to establish a democracy out of Iraq. The Lord showed me before this war ever came that there is going to be a crack in the Middle East and that God was going to establish democracy out of Iraq that will affect the whole region. That will affect Egypt, that will affect Syria, and then just go through the region. And so, I want to say to you, we cannot stop in the battle, because if we stop we are going to lose. It is in the balance right now. We will either have another Vietnam, or we'll have the greatest move of God in Middle East. The stakes in the Middle East are that millions of souls need Jesus Christ. This is what we are fighting for! God wants to do something great!”
Note the “God wants to establish a democracy out of Iraq”, followed by God showed her that He was “going to establish democracy out of Iraq”. But then Jacobs said “we cannot stop in the battle, because if we stop we are going to lose. It is in the balance right now. We will either have another Vietnam, or we'll have the greatest move of God in Middle East.” Apparently what God wants and what God said he would do is contingent upon America not giving up the battle, because if she does what God wants will not happen. [See Footnote on a comment by Kim Clement]
After some more nonsense about 2006 it's going to be a time of rejoicing.. She says (Emphasis added)
“The Lord showed me Lebanon has a business marketplace anointing. God is going to begin to pour out millions and millions of dollars. The Christians in Lebanon are going to become very wealthy God is getting ready to release an anointing of treasure and wealth, and he is going to bring the desert to bloom in Lebanon.

"And the most liberal state is gonna become the most conservative state," says the Lord your God. Now let the fire come. Let the fire come. California, wave your hands at me. Where are you? The fire of God is falling on you right now. Ohh. Hallelujah. It's a holy mess. It's a glorious disarray. When God is comes he shakes everything up. Let the fire come. Oh, yeah, yeah. More fire. Let the fire burn. Let the fire fall. Come on. Hallelujah. Let the fire fall. Ohh, let the fire fall. Ohh, hallelujah, Lord. Hallelujah."

Seems like God has His facts wrong... Massachusetts is the most liberal state in the country, possibly followed by Oregon with New Jersey well in the running. And Cindy Jacobs certainly may not want the Fire to Fall.. [TOP OF PAGE]
Prophet GALE SHEEHAN
(2006 shall be a year of "Kingdom time" financial release, healing miracles and destiny direction.)
JAMES GOLL 2006
"It's the Time for Favor!"
Some time ago, the voice of the Holy Spirit drew near to me saying, "The time for favor has come!" Faith was ignited in me as His word exploded within my heart. That same word keeps coming to me again in this season. Close your eyes and see this for yourself. Hear the word of the Lord coming to you, "The time of favor has come!"
Well James, 2006 was a Ho Hum business as usual kind of year .. the church slid further into apostasy, while the gays, liberals and terrorists gained ground. Jane Hamon actually had the gall to say (Word of the Lord for 2007) that 2006 was a year of great challenge and also great victories for many in the Body of Christ.
Now “2007 promises to be a year of great favor” After which it will probably be 2008, 2009 , 2010 and on and on ad nauseum. Well, at least until the Lord returns. [TOP OF PAGE]
Apostle and Overseer of Crusaders Church Chicago, Eckhardt is founder of the Apostolic Institute of Ministry (AIM), dedicated to training leaders in apostolic and prophetic ministry, is a much sought after international conference speaker, has authored more than 35 books, produces a daily radio broadcast, and has a television program “This Week with John Eckhardt”
"You see I prophesy over you a new dimension, and I just speak by the Spirit of God and the Lord said I'm raising up a new leadership in the earth and the Lord said "Truly there is a leader shift taking place and I'm moving my leaders into new positions and into new anointings." (John Eckhardt, National School Of The Prophets-Mobilizing The Prophetic Office, Friday, 5/12/00, 7:00 p.m. - Session 12)
"The Lord said "That which you walked in in the past is not sufficient for today or for the future." But the Lord said, "I'm calling you into another realm of faith, into another realm of grace, into another realm of my anointing." (John Eckhardt, National School Of The Prophets-Mobilizing The Prophetic Office, Friday, 5/12/00, 7:00 p.m. - Session 12)
"So the Lord says, "Do not draw back but press into this dimension, for it is a new dimension for my leaders," and the Lord said, "And each city and each region a new breed of prophetic and apostolic leaders shall be raised up and you shall begin to do what you could not do before and you shall begin to release my grace and my anointing upon the people." (John Eckhardt, National School Of The Prophets-Mobilizing The Prophetic Office, Friday, 5/12/00, 7:00 p.m. - Session 12)
So now, not only is there a NEW grace and a NEW anointing but the ‘prophets’ will release it onto the people. Did something happen to the old grace? I guess maybe it just wore itself out. [TOP OF PAGE]
"I ask that this one thing, your church would gaze on the, the beauty of the Lord, I ask that you would awaken the hardened lost . I ask you to fascinate your church with the revelation of the beauty of Jesus. Come and release lovesickness for Jesus. Come and unlock the fountains of the hearts, now, Lord, by the river of fire, by the Holy Spirit, by the spirit of revelation. Let us see what the Seraphim see. Let us be awestruck by the beauty of the God-man. In the name of Jesus we ask that." (Mike Bickle, National School Of The Prophets-Mobilizing The Prophetic Office, May 11, 7 pm, 2002)
In the words of Sandy Simpson of Deception in The Church.. “Jesus is not in the business of putting on a signs and wonders show to "fascinate people". If Mike Bickle saw what the Seraphim see, he would be struck dead. No one can see the face of God and live” (John 1:18, Ex. 33:20). [TOP OF PAGE]
The prophecies marked as being made on the 31st of December 1989 are extracts from Hinn’s ramblings one night at the Orlando Christian Center. He apparently kept the crowd there until about one a.m. when he said “What did I say in that prophecy, guys? How long did I? I prophesied for twenty minutes? I'd like to know what I said. I was totally gone”.

"The Lord also says that, Two of his great giants will die in the mid-90's. They've held the torch of revival for the last forty years, these two. One of them has been to this church, and the other has not. One will die suddenly while asleep. And the other will die of sickness. And as both giants die, which will be in the mid-90's, I will shake this world with a last revival. Their death will be the closing pages of this move. And the new move of God will begin, which I have promised. Remember when Moses died, Joshua arose. And when the Moses' of this day will die--two of them still walking this earth, whose calling is that of Moses--my Joshua's will arise. (Benny Hinn. Orlando Christian Center, Dec. 31st, 1989)

A New Plague Will be Birthed Because of a New Drug
"God tells me to tell you, There's a new disease that will arise on the scene--unknown to mankind. It will kill many. The Spirit of God tells me to tell you that, There is a demon spirit (my goodness). His name is Apollyon. He's written-up in the book of Revelation. His name is the destructor, destroyer. He will come from the south--from South America into America itself--and will plague many for living in rebellion. God tells me to tell you that, The drug problem of America will cause many to die with that plague. This new plague will be birthed because of a new drug that will come on the scene in the 90's. It will come from South America. And the United States Government will look at, on that day, and say, Where do we go now? But My people will arise with healing in their wings, even as healing are in Mine. (Benny Hinn. Orlando Christian Center, Dec. 31st, 1989)
Canada will be visited with a mighty revival that will start in the west coast of British Columbia. It will sweep across the west. It will sweep across even Alaska, and will come east. But the great move of God that I have planned for America will not begin on the west coast, but on the east coast. It will break-loose in the next three years and sweep across the west. (Benny Hinn. Orlando Christian Center, Dec. 31st, 1989)

On the April 2nd TBN program, Benny Hinn claimed that God was about to make a major move to anoint the people of God, as soon as Israel signed a treaty with the ailing Hafez Al-Assad of Syria, which he said would likely be within the next year. This would signal the impending large scale shift of financial wealth from the wicked to those obedient to God. But, in order to benefit from this unprecedented supernatural

STOP what you are doing and hear this! The Lord said to me last Saturday, I heard His voice in that church, and He said, "Tell them, time is running out", and His voice was coming in waves in into my heart. "Time is running" and then there was a second voice. Now hear this one. ... "Tell the people, I am passing by many" Hear this - "I am passing by many and if I pass by it would be as though I never knew them. I am passing by many and if I pass by it would be as though I never knew them." My friend we're all being tested right now on whether we are gonna stick with this or walk away from it. Tonight is decision night. It is not only decision night for America, for the next four years, this is decision night for eternity. What you do for God tonight, you do it with your soul, you do it with your life. This is not, my friend, just another Tel-A-Thon. This is - this may very well be the last one.

Jesus is physically appearing in the Muslim world
"Ladies and gentleman, Jesus is shaking the world! Now something else is happening that is to me awesome! Absolutely awesome! The Lord is physically appearing in the Muslim world. I'm telling you, Paul, I am hearing it now more and more and more. Since we preachers cannot go there, Jesus is - just going there Himself. Since we preachers are not permitted to go in, He is just showing up - Himself. You know the Scriptures says clearly that the Lord did appear, did He not? Ah for forty days, isn't that right? And the, and the, and the Scriptures says he, he, he even, he even appeared to Paul. Now we are always thinking, well Jesus can't really preach, preach the Gospel. Who told you that? He was the first one to preach the Gospel. In fact He is the one who came to Paul and said, Paul, I am Jesus. He, He didn't send no angel to do that job. He did it Himself. If Jesus revealed Himself to Paul, why not reveal Himself to a lot more than just Paul? And He is doing it! The reason the Lord had to appear to Paul is because He knew Paul wouldn't listen to nobody else. Now in the case of Cornelius, the angel said send for Peter, 'cause, because Cornelius was, was ready, his heart was right, he'd been in prayer. But here's Paul killing everybody, causing 'em to blaspheme, Jesus said this man won't even listen to an angel, so I'll go do the job myself. So He went and knocked him right off his horse and preached the Gospel to him. He's doing the same thing today in the Muslim world. He's appearing, hear this, He is appearing to Muslims, saying I am Jesus of Nazareth! And they're coming to know the Lord! Why are those things happening? It's the last days! Saints, this is why we need to give to the Gospel now more than ever. You know naively say well I gave last year. Forget it! Last year it's gone! That cycle is over with! Seed time - harvest of last year is gone. Every season is a fresh season. We are in a fresh season. What, what you gave last year will not reap you anything this year. What you gave even a few months ago is gone, you got the harvest for that." (Benny Hinn. April 2nd, 2000 - TBN Praise-a-thon )

"Let me tell you something. The Holy Spirit has already told me He is about to show up. And you know, oh, I gotta tell you this quickly, just before we go. I had a word of prophecy from Ruth Heflin, you know who Ruth Heflin is? Ruth prophesied over me back in the seventies and everything she said has happened. She just sent me a word through my wife and said the Lord spoke to her audibly and said that He is going to appear physically in one of our crusades in the next few months.

I believe, that Jesus, God's Son, is about to appear physically, in meetings and to believers around the world, to wake us up! He appeared after His resurrection and He is about to appear before His second coming! You know a prophetess sent me a word through my wife, right here, and she said 'Tell your husband that Jesus is go'n to physically appear in his meetings.' I am expecting to see, I am telling you that - I feel it's going to happen. I, I, I'm, I'm careful in how I am saying it now, because I know the people in Kenya are listening. I know deep in my soul, something supernatural is going to happen in Nai - in Nairobi Kenya. I feel that. I may very well come back, and you and Jan are coming, to - Paul and Jan are coming to Nairobi with me, but Paul, we may very well come back with footage of Jesus on the platform! You know that the Lord appeared in Romania recently, and there's a video of it? Where the Lord appeared in the back of a church and you see him on video walking down the isle? Yeah! Paul do you remember when I came on TBN years ago and showed you a clip of the Lord appearing in our church in Orlando, on the balcony on the wall? Yeah. You, you remember that? [Paul Crouch] Very well, I saw it! [Benny Hinn] That was '80, 80 something, '86, what - whatever. You know I always wondered why the Lord, why did He do that? Do you know why, now I look back? That was the beginning of the greatest move of God in our church. Because '83, '84, and '85 were horrible years for me, horrible years. Eighty-six the blessings of God began, but they began with a - with this manifestation of the Lord's face on, on the balcony, that stayed for eight weeks. Eight solid weeks! The Lord has done this in the past, but He is about to do it again, now hear this, I am prophesying this! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is about to appear physically in some churches, and some meetings, and to many of His people, for one reason - to tell you He is about to show up! To Wake Up! Jesus is coming saints! You have held back from the Lord in the past, don't you dare do it now. The day will come you'll
stand before Him and give an answer. How dare we not give to God. How dare we hold back." (Benny Hinn. April 2nd, 2000 - TBN Praise-a-thon) Click On Icon For Audio)
(On May 9th of 2000, Benny Hinn was the guest on the Behind the Scenes program of TBN with Jan Crouch. Video from his Nairobi Crusade was shown, but NOTHING was said about Jesus not appearing like Benny Hinn said He would. No explanations, no apologies, no NOTHING. Seems like they all were stricken with collective amnesia). And of course this is hardly surprising in view of Matthew 24:23-27...
At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect— if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time. "So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the desert,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it.

Satan To Unleash Horror and Terror on This Earth
Wednesday, the Wednesday before the 20th would be the 19th, correct, no the 18th of December at 2 am I awakened to a prophecy ringing in my heart. I was hearing myself prophesy. ...Jeremiah the prophet said that when the Spirit of God came upon him, when the word of the Lord came upon him, it was as fire came into his being. And he could not hold the prophesy. When the Word of the Lord is given to you, you'll prophesy even if you're alone in that place. And so I felt as though my mouth was about to burst with this prophesy. But what I heard was frightening. That was on Wednesday. Thursday morning at 2 am in fact. And now I'm hearing the words “Rivers of blood, rivers of blood.” And the Lord revealed to me what's coming in the next few days and weeks with this war with Iraq. I will tell you this, Satan is ready to unleash horror and terror on this earth as never before. But I heard the Lord say, literally I heard Him speak those words, He said, "Dark days are ahead for the world, and bright days for my people." (Applause) I was prophesying it. "Those who know me and those who walk with me will know light and beauty, says the Lord." God began to speak these words. ... March 3rd. I just heard March 3rd in my ears. What's March 3rd? What day is that? We don't know. I don't know what March 3rd what day it would be? I'm not sure what I would be, I don't know what crusade or service or maybe I'm not anywhere. But I'm hearing the Lord say that to me. (Benny Hinn, TBN "Praise The Lord", 12/30/02)[TOP OF PAGE]
Clement once quoted the Lord as saying
“Why have you gone from a dominion mandate to a departure mandate?”.
Hmmm! Lord I know you are omniscient, but, are you sure you know what exactly a departure mandate is? If so, I sure wish you would tell me. (Sorry.. Couldn’t resist that one).
Kim Clement spews out this bilge day after day in an endless torrent of pretentious hot air that means absolutely nothing. Many of the ‘prophecies’ have not come to pass and few people who sit there and soak them in month after month, year after year, ever seem to bother to check, totally ignoring the Biblical verses that talk about false prophets. I read most of these self-styled prophecies on his site, although I did not go through them all… there is only so much this garbage that I can read before the urge to throw up gets overwhelming.
February 3, 1996 New Life Church
… The end of time is coming, says the Lord but We planned this and We set this as a precedent that would take place for even in this end time the White House shall be sanctified with My Glory and I will fill it with prosperity and I will take those of white head, I will take those of gray head and I will raise them up and I will cause them to have an understanding of My Glory. I will shift the economy suddenly down and then suddenly up and God says when it raises up, it will be toward 1999 and the people will say, where do we go now? We have everything that it takes and then sudden calamity, but God says that's when I will rise and I will prove Myself stronger than before for as you go into the year 2000 there will be shouting and rejoicing, for God says this nation shall be known as the nation under one God that is known as the Nation of Righteousness and you will reach every nation in the world because of this that I will do for you, America the Great!!!
I don’t know about you but I missed all the “shouting and rejoicing”. Even if there had been any, it wouldn’t have lasted but until 9/11. The “Nation of Righteousness”? Give me a break! See Has America Passed The Point of No Return?

“New York City, consumed by a spirit that has even taken hold of the people and caused greed. Tonight the Spirit of the Lord says my Spirit is about to burn so strongly that it will cause a fire to take place and the fire will burn everything that has no been born of my Spirit. It will take everything that has not been born of my Spirit. It will take everything that has not been born of my Spirit and I will burn it down. And God says, righteousness will prevail. I will take every dividing racial spirit and I will destroy it. I will take the cultural demons that have caused people to separate themselves and I will do something that is so mighty that it will be spoken of by people on the West Coast, says the Spirit of the Lord!”
It is claimed that this prophecy was fulfilled in the attack on New York on 9/11. Half a glance will show that this is not so.. Everything that was not of God’s spirit was NOT burned. The dividing racial spirit” was not destroyed. Nothing was done with the “cultural demons” and the people on the West Coast have been quite silent.
July 25, 1996
“I will even take the rabbi's, even take the people that are dressed in the cloaks and garments. They will come out and say there is only one Lord. His name is Jesus! It's Jesus! I will even allow my Spirit to baptize them in the very sanctuaries. I will even go into the temples, and I will fill them with my Spirit. And don't let anybody tell you that I cannot do it, says the Lord. I can go to the temple any time I like. I can go to the Jewish places anytime I like. I can go to Mount Zion any time I like. I will go wherever I want to.”
“But that's not all! But that's not all! He says, I'm going to go way beyond and even go into the Christian Science church. I will go to the Scientologists. I will even go to the Jehovah Witnesses. And they will go from JW to JC in the house! For God says, I'll take the Jehovah Witnesses, the Christian Scientists, I will even take the psychics, and fill them with my Spirit. You know why? You know why, says the Lord? Because I'll go wherever I want. I'll go wherever I want. But listen - I'm about to take a trip to Israel.”
…“And the Spirit of the Lord says, when that happens, there will be an invasion of my blood into the territories that would never be holy, but shall become holy. I will take the holy places which are actually unholy, and I will lift them up. I will declare, this is NOT holy. I will tear down the idols and their gods. I will tear down the spirits of Allah.”
There is nothing said about repentance is these supposed prophecies, just that God’s spirit will “baptize them in the very sanctuaries” whatever that is supposed to mean.. What sanctuaries are we talking about here? And why in the world would the Lord use language like “I'm about to take a trip to Israel”. What is it about omnipresence that Clement doesn’t understand? What is an unholy place that is actually holy? This entire so called prophecy is nothing but charismatic rhetoric, devoid of any meaningful content. All the above mentioned cults are still doing what they do best.. Liberally lacing the Scriptures with the leader’s heresy. [See Cults]

But what about the gays?” God says, “I will take gay people and I will cause them to be filled with my Spirit and to speak my Word with purity and life. Do not tell me I cannot do it, says the Lord; I will do exactly what I like. If I can go to the woman at the well, if I can go to the adulterer, if I can go to the religious Pharisee, if I can go to the tax-collector, why can I not do it today?”

They are praying for God to come into a system and shake it. Your prayers are being sent into the very highest powers of the Roman Catholic Church. For a Pope shall be laid to rest, and I will raise up an unusual man that will take that position. And even though some of you despise this, I will raise up an unusual man that will come in and bring the Spirit of God amongst the Roman Catholic people. Think it not possible, but it shall be so, says the spirit of the Lord..."
Before Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was elected pope (about two years later) he was head of the powerful Vatican office that oversees doctrine and takes action against dissent, a role he held since 1981. His ultra conservatism has earned him unflattering nicknames such as Panzer Cardinal, God's rottweiler, and the Grand Inquisitor. He is an super conservative Catholic, who is very unlikely to “bring the Spirit of God amongst the Roman Catholic people”.

One a businessman, who has hailed himself as the Chief of Microsoft. I will take the one wealthy man, I speak of men in this Nation, and shall become the financier of the kingdom of God, says the Lord.
I shall take one who is blind...

Rejoice for this shall be a great undertaking, says the Spirit of God. Come on!
Prophecy dated January 2004
God told me that March 11, 2004 would be the beginning of an unusual chain of events in the Kingdom of God. He spoke about that day being the unveiling of mysteries and revelations that would affect the following areas over a period of time:
Political events that will bring a period of peace for the USA
Hidden agendas exposed and a shaking of terrorist activities in a big way
Unusual access into secular arenas for the purpose of evangelism
Medical discoveries that will affect the following diseases: Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, Parkinson’s, a lung disease, and a rare bone disease
Unusual spiritual manifestations in spiritually uninhabited places with mass responses due to media coverage of these events
Kingdom appearances in church meetings (Instead of regular revival meetings, churches that are hungry for fresh things from God will "tarry" until these Kingdom manifestations actually take place.
March 11 will begin disclosures in political circles, and the President will have to use a firm hand against internal enemies
Cain will be exposed- Ministries that attempted to "destroy and kill” their brothers because of jealousy, accusation, and hatred, will be banished for a season until they are humble again. Then they will bring forth an "Enoch" move of the Spirit.
Finally, I saw March 11 as the “beginning of the end” of major terrorist leaders and movements.
On March 11 2004 close to 200 people died when terrorists bombed several trains in Madrid. So much for the "beginning of the end of major terrorist leaders and movements” . As for the rest of the happening supposed to take place or start taking place on March 11th.. So far (more than three years later there have been NO “Unusual access into secular arenas”, great “Medical discoveries”, “Unusual spiritual manifestations”, “Kingdom appearances in church meetings”, “disclosures in political circles”

Osama Bin Laden
Osama Bin Laden said that in 35 days America (he was prophesying, predicting) would be abolished, wiped out because he has a plan for 35 days. And the word of the Lord came to me and said, “You prophesy that the very thing that he said and predicted for this Nation is reversed, I’m going to bring him out in 35 days. There is a resurrection day coming over this Easter. This Easter will be one of the greatest Easters this nation has ever celebrated. Why? Because there will be a resurrection of the dead, speaking spiritually of revelation that has died, of prophetic words that have died and been buried in the ground. This Easter, not only will I bring your greatest enemy out, but I will also bring about a severe judgment against the powers and the principalities that have come against my servants, against my people. There shall be a judgment.”
Cures Discovered For Diseases
Alzheimer’s has come against too many of God’s people; the prophetic word of the Lord is coming to you tonight. Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, rare bone and lung diseases; these five things will suddenly come to the surface with incredible discoveries and it will begin this year.
I guess if any ‘incredible discoveries’ began in the year 2004, I missed it. So did the rest of the world.

God said that on March the 11th (the month of March has been set aside by God for the Church in the United States of America for something unbelievably wonderful to happen) there’s going to be one unusual event, almost like a renting of something, a curtain, and a veil for the church. Pastors and leaders, watch the month of March. A fabulous anointing is going to be released, and what you’ve struggled to get is going to be released like that! In just one second. It’s payback time.
I guess the ‘one second’ came and went so fast that most were not even aware that it had happened. Sorry Lord, but we all failed to notice the ‘fabulous anointing’… Maybe it wasn’t fabulous enough.

….. But because there’s a man in the oval office that’s praying, I will stop this storm and I will stop the hand of judgment and I will stop the Angel of Death and he will be stayed because of the prayers of the President. And from that year there will be such a huge harvest coming in, where Atheists thought they would never come into the kingdom. Get ready because you are going to become a first fruits of this thing."
Bush's track record on numerous key conservative issues is less than stellar, to put it mildly. His record regarding favored treatment for the homosexual agenda is every bit as pro-homosexual as Bill Clinton’s. Maybe more so. Because Bush talks pro-life, very few people bother to examine his record on the subject. His initial decision to continue Reagan's policy to not provide funds for overseas abortion providers was about the only substantive pro-life decision so far in his administration, until he reversed the policy. Laura has also publicly said she is opposed to overturning Roe v Wade.

This shall be known as the year of viruses being annihilated. For there shall be 3 deadly viruses that shall begin the process of annihilation in 2005. And those that were supposed to die shall live, shall live…
Get ready, for there shall be a creation of a computer that shall supersede everything that has been invented up to this point. It shall be so rapid, and there shall be no more viruses that shall come and be able to touch your systems. Do not be afraid of the 666, do not be afraid of the beast. Do not be afraid of those that would teach that their power is going to destroy you. The greatest years are about to come upon you and the Holy Spirit has withheld certain blessings, but now they shall begin in just a few minutes. They have already begun in the spirit where the blessing of the Lord shall begin and overtake your lives. You will populate the marketplace in 2005. I’m going to give you cities through mass media.
In 2005 there will be grace without limit given to you your families, your children, your business, your bodies. There is no prescribed limit.

A New Pope
“ For in 21 days from now a shaking will take place in the Roman Catholic Church. They will say, No it can not be. Why would they elect such a person? And then they will say, No we can not do it at this time. But it shall be done and I will bring the Spirit into the Roman Catholic Church and the Vatican. There will be an infilling of the Spirit of the Cardinals and the priests. This day I have received a servant. This day you call him the Pope. This day I call him My son. This day you said a pope has died, this day I say a servant has won”
Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was elected Pope - the head of the world's 1.1 billion Roman Catholics on Tuesday, 19 April, 2005, 17 days after the above ‘prophecy’. No shaking has taken place in the church and certainly there has been no “infilling of the Spirit of the Cardinals and the priests “. If there had been, there would have had to be a major shake up of the key Catholic doctrines or they would have all left the Catholic church. On the contrary the new pope is very critical of progressive Catholicism

"There will be an earthquake in the Northwest. And it shall be between Portland Oregon and Seattle WA up into Vancouver. This has already happened (before) and it will come to pass and the people listen and say ok, its already being spoken, so now we must prepare ourselves.
Scientists have been telling us for years that a major earthquake in the Pacific Northwest is not a matter of if but when. “The Cascadia Subduction Zone is a long, sloping fault that stretches from northern California to Vancouver Island. The zone, which separates the Juan de Fuca Plate and the North American Plate, has a very large fault area which can produce large earthquakes with a magnitude of 9.0 or greater if a rupture were to occur comparable in size to the rupture zone in the Pacific Ocean that triggered a devastating tsunami in the Sumatra-Andaman Islands.”. The last known great earthquake in the Pacific Northwest -- the Cascadia Earthquake -- struck in January, 1700. While such phenomena are infrequent, with a cycle of every few hundred years, the region is due for a big one. "You're looking at a big tsunami happening at the same time” seismologist Garry Rogers.

Listen to the word of the Lord: "I will give you houses and land. Your harvest [and] your wheat shall multiply. Your silver and your gold will multiply. NASDAQ, thou has fallen; you have been raised up [and] gone back down. But now, it's time to rise to the highest place ever." Listen to the secrets of the Lord. The Spirit of God says, "I will multiply in the New Year. Beginning midnight all over the world. . . and having begun--a spirit of multiplication has begun," says the Lord.
The Spirit of God says, "I'm going to hear. I'm going to hasten [and] accelerate My word to perform it. For what you lost in 2003 and in 2004 and in 2005, I WILL MULTIPLY IN 2006! " [www.christianinternational.org/articles/clement_wol-06.html. Link is Obsolete]

“…October will be a very unusual month again, says the Spirit of the Lord for this Nation. Look to the early part of July, just a few days from now, how I will begin to bring forth and show this Nation that it has not been in vain how you have stood up against an enemy that was already planning so much more than this Nation even knew or understood.”
For the last several decades (and gradually getting worse) one fact has been clear… America has been busy standing up AGAINST Christianity, NOT against the enemy..

During the summer and at the Mardi Gras, says the Lord, at New Orleans, watch what I do. There is going to be an interference in the Mardi Gras, says the Lord. God said, listen you hear that? That sound of joy, the music of the one that sits and plays. And God said, you watch what I do in the Mardi Gras, watch what I do in a place of great perversion. Watch what I do.
Guess God changed His mind and didn’t do anything, since Mardi Gras (celebrated the day before Ash Wednesday. I.e. Feb. 20 of 2007) is back in business.. This year
“Based on such criteria as hotel occupancy and parade crowds, tourism officials Wednesday declared this year's Carnival not only a resounding success but also a harbinger of tourism's resurgence in the city that Hurricane Katrina ravaged... the number of Mardi Gras visitors ranged between 700,000 and 800,000”
“However, there was little difference this season in arrests on such charges as public drunkenness and urinating in public, said Sgt. Joe Narcisse, a New Orleans Police Department spokesman”.
“On Tuesday, Police Superintendent Warren Riley said there had been 524 arrests on such charges, compared with 479 on Mardi Gras last year” [Mardi Gras is back in business. http://mardigras.blogs.nola.com. Emphasis added]
.... "In 2005, in the months of August, September and October, those three months, I will bring about such great festivities, because of the breakthrough that shall come and governing powers will be on your side, says the Lord

False prophet extraordinaire Kenneth Copeland, in a dedication service on 12/02/01 for the new 2000 seat Word of Life church auditorium in Honolulu, predicted that close to one billion Muslims would be saved in the next few months. [Sandy Simpson, 12/5/01]
"And there are going to be multiplied millions upon millions, there's going to be close to a billion people that have been trapped in that religion, that over the next few months are gonna to come into the kingdom of God. (cheering) That's gonna happen, you watch and see what I'm telling you. Because its been ... I'm telling you Satan's fat is in the fire he pushed it over the line, and God has moved, and for over a hundred years the United States has been an instrument of judgment in the hand of God. That's one of the reasons we're blessed, amen? I'd like to get in there and walk around a while but I don't have the time but I can tell you this, that thing has come to an end, its over, I'm talking about Islam and every, all that that stands for. That's over with. Now, God is making His move." [Kenneth Copeland, Word of Life Christian Center, Honolulu HI, Dedication Celebration Service, Evening, Dec. 2, 2001]
"We are going to agree together tonight that god's will will be carried out. And that whosoever is elected as president of the United States and whomsoever is elected in the congress of the united states, will hear and obey the voice of God almighty for the next four years in this nation."
Copeland then prayed, "And for the next four years, we fully plan to be led of the Holy Ghost in this nation! And we ask you to see to it that whomever is president, vice-president, whomever's in the congress, will hear the voice of the living god and carry it out! And if there is anyone in office that refuses to do that, we're asking you lord as a congregation of people, and we agree that you will do it, that you'll get 'em out of office and put somebody in there that will! In the name of Jesus. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!" (Word of life Church service. Honolulu, Hawaii, August 18, 1996.). [TOP OF PAGE]
InPlainSite.org Note: Copeland’s “agreement’ is nothing but another attempt of the Word Faith movement to manipulate God. The phrase "where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them"? has become an accepted and often expected formula for reinforcing the idea that agreement among two or three believers will better "seal a deal" with God. But when we look carefully at the scriptures, we fail to find justification for such a concept. [Details]

“NORFOLK, Va. — Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson said Friday he believed God has told him President Bush would be re-elected in a "blowout" in November.
"I think George Bush is going to win in a walk," Robertson said on his "700 Club" program on the Virginia Beach-based Christian Broadcasting Network, which he founded. "I really believe I'm hearing from the Lord it's going to be like a blowout election in 2004. It's shaping up that way."” [http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/politics/whitehouse/la-na-robertson3jan03,1,5759467.story?coll=la-news-politics-white_house]
He then went on to say
“"The Lord has just blessed him," Robertson said of Bush. "I mean, he could make terrible mistakes and comes out of it. It doesn't make any difference what he does, good or bad, God picks him up because he's a man of prayer and God's blessing him."”

Robertson predicts 'mass killing' by terrorists in U.S. this year
By Hannah Elliott.
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (ABP) -- In the latest of a long-but-unsuccessful line of predictions and prophecies, Pat Robertson said Jan. 2 the United States will face a massive terrorist attack in late 2007.
The 76-year-old religious broadcaster uttered his prediction during the Jan. 2 broadcast of The 700 Club, his news-and-commentary show on the Christian Broadcasting Network. Robertson said that, during a recent time of prayer, God revealed to him an attack on the United States would result in "mass killing," according to news reports.
"I'm not necessarily saying it's going to be nuclear," Robertson said. "The Lord didn't say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that."
An Associated Press story quoted Robertson as saying major cities will be affected by the attack, which he said will happen after September.
Several Baptist theologians and ethicists condemned the televangelist's latest remarks.
Robertson's prediction of doom plays on an already-established fear among Americans: In a Dec. 31 poll reported by the Associated Press, six in 10 people think the U.S. will fall victim to a terrorist attack this year.
This is not the first prediction of national calamity Robertson has made. In May 2006, he claimed American coastlines would be "lashed by storms" and the Pacific Northwest hit by "something as bad as a tsunami." No such disasters occurred that year. [http://www.abpnews.com/1591.article]
Just as an aside..Pat Robertson has chosen to support Rudy Giuliani in the 2008 Presidential Election, saying that “it was important for me to make it clear that Rudy Giuliani is more than acceptable to people of faith,"
Not only is Robertson a false prophet, he is also a very poor ‘leader’. Giuliani is unashamedly pro-abortion has openly supported gay unions. [See More on Pat Robertson] [TOP OF PAGE]
Paul Crouch and “Pastor” Henkle
On April 14, 1993, Paul Crouch came on during a portion of a “Praise-A-Thon” that was a week-long, 24-hour appeal for funds to keep the Trinity Broadcasting Network [TBN] on the air. He claimed that he had some world-shaking news.
That news was that a “very dear friend” of his whom he identified as “Pastor Henkle” had recently had some personal and verbal words directly from God. Crouch assured everyone that he had experienced some of Pastor Henkle’s prophecies in the past and had observed them to come true. The world-shaking words that Pastor Henkle supposedly had received directly from God were:
“On June the 9th, Thursday, 1994, I am going to rip evil from this world”!
Isaiah 25:6-9 was given as a Scriptural basis for this prophecy [www.ministryserver.com] [TOP OF PAGE]
Quoted from Media Spotlight’s documentation of Oral Roberts' claims.
1960: Roberts claimed that God had told him to make His healing power known throughout the earth. This report appeared in Charisma magazine in May 1987: "In 1960, Roberts believed God spoke to his heart and said:
`Raise up your students to hear My Voice, to go where My light is dim, where My voice and My healing power is not known. To go even to uttermost bounds of the earth. Their work will exceed yours. And in this, I am well pleased."
(To date, none of Roberts' students' work has exceeded his, at least as far as his publicity has revealed).
1977: Roberts said he had received a vision from God telling him to build the City of Faith. He later claimed to have seen a 900- foot-tall Jesus who told him that the vision would soon be realized and that the hospital would be a success. The City of Faith opened in 1981.
1983: Roberts announced that Jesus had appeared to him in person and commissioned him to find a cure for cancer (Time, July 4, 1983).
(No cure for cancer has been found at the Oral Roberts University or anywhere else).
1986: Roberts said God had told him, "I want you to use the ORU medical school to put My medical presence in the earth. I want you to get this going in one year or I will call you home. It will cost $8 million and I want you to believe you can raise it." (Abundant Life, Jan./Feb. 1987)
January 1987: Roberts said God had told him he had not sent out any medical missionaries. In order for him to do that, he had to raise $8 million by March 1 or God would take him home. Roberts said the money would be used to provide full scholarships for medical missionaries who would be sent to Third World countries. He made the appeal in his TV program "Expect a Miracle" of January 4, 1987.
He said $3.5 million had been raised and all he needed was $4.5 million before March 1 that year.
April 1, 1987: Roberts announced that he had raised $9.1 million--$1.1 million more than needed. Of the money raised, $1.3 million was given by a dog track owner [which, like horse racing, is a gambling center], Jerry Collins.
November 1987: Roberts announced that the City of Faith medical clinic will close in three months.
January 1988: Roberts canceled the university's free medical tuition program despite his claim that God had told him to make the medical school a world outreach program.
March 1988: The medical scholarship fund went bankrupt. Students were required to repay scholarship funds at 18 percent annual interest if they transferred to another school rather than stay at ORU medical school and start paying the high tuition.
September 1989: Roberts decided to close the medical school and the City of Faith hospital to pay off debts.
The Editor of Watch! makes these important comments: "This list of claims and promises is a very serious matter indeed. Several questions beg to be asked: Is the `900-foot-Jesus' a lying, seducing, evil spirit? If it was really Jesus, why did He not fulfill His promises? Why did not God take Roberts home when he failed to raise the money before March 1? Or was it another of Roberts' false pretenses to raise money? What happened to all the money that was raised? Will it be returned to those who gave in sincerity?
"More importantly, several doctrinal issues are at stake. For example, is there any truth in the charismatic claims of continuing visions, revelations, and prophecies? We believe the saga of Oral Roberts and his City of Faith puts the whole charismatic movement in its proper perspective--that there are many false prophets within."
InPlainSite.org Note. The ever-growing Charismatic movement (a twentieth-century phenomenon) emphasizes the baptism in the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues, prophecy, the gift of healing and on ‘personal experience’, all of which are contributing factors to the movement’s popularity. Many orthodox Christians, on the other hand, believe that tongues, prophecy and faith healing ceased after the completion of the New Testament canon. Who is right? See Have Prophecy, Direct Revelation, Tongues, and Miracles Ceased?
[TOP OF PAGE]
"Beware of false prophets" (Matthew 7:15). These well-known words of Jesus instantly tell us two things: 1) There are false prophets 2) They are dangerous. In fact the Lord took the whole subject of false prophecy so seriously that the penalty in Old Testament times was death for false prophets (Deut 18:20).
But this is not all. Willing listeners who have given these false prophets credence are under an equally severe judgment as those who done the actual prophesying, since The Lord made it an extremely simple matter to distinguish a false prophets from a real one, and He did so FOR OUR PROTECTION. The listeners are not excused because false prophets told them lies, for they have given credit to these fabrications.
Therefore thus saith Jehovah concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land: By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed. And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them-them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them. [Jeremiah 14:15-16. Emphasis Added]
Jeremiah further tells us
An astonishing and horrible thing is come to pass in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof? [Jeremiah 5:30-31. Emphasis Added]
Which perfectly sums up the situation today..
When they are caught in one of their obvious untruths, these people either come up with one of the standard excuses or simply redraft and rephrase their unscriptural words, providing their credulous audience with more great swelling words and more promises of vast sweeping events the God has never heard of and therefore never happens.. but through it all they constantly reassure us that they are speaking for God. Seemingly, no one ever holds them accountable, no one gets any wiser, but passes the baton on to the next generation of susceptible fools who, in turn, succumb to the new false prophecies.
So the question arises as to where the torrents of drivel proceeding out of the mouths of a myriad of phony prophets comes from. There is little doubt that most of these people feed off one another. A lot of what they say is simply the same old script, reworked, rewritten and retold. Occasionally it seems that they are giving a gullible church some ‘new’ insights into the future, but a careful reading gives one a sense of Déjà Moo... The distinct feeling one has heard all this bull before. But this does not answer the original question...
Since God has been effectively eliminated as the wellspring of any of this nonsense, there can only be two other possible sources.
1) The ‘Prophet’ Themselves: It scarcely seems possible that human beings could be capable of deception on such a grand scale, but I suppose it is entirely possible that the lure of the accolades of thousands, the never ending invitations to speak at this church and that conference and the very status of a prophet of God could prove to be irresistible. It is probably very nice to be ‘important’. I daresay most of them do quite well for themselves financially as well.
2) Satan: After watching the Stacey Campbell video, and hearing Benny Hinn growl at one of his meetings, I fully believe that many many of the so called prophets fall into this category. If not completely demon possessed they are certainly being manipulated and controlled by evil spirits masquerading as angels of light. But I take that back.. discernment is at such a low ebb that I doubt the spirit has to even impersonate anything. He could show up complete with horns and tail and much of the church would fall over themselves to buy his most recent tape or book, which, of course, would be carried by most of the ‘Christian’ bookstores..
Two facts should stand out as clearly as the rising sun… False prophets do not know what truth really is and to believe that these supposed men of God are saved, redeemed, and born-again men, is to carry delusion to the farthest limit.
"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ! And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works. " (2 Corinthians 11:13-15) [TOP OF PAGE]
