  Prophets Or Deluded Charlatans
 
(Charlatan - A person who makes elaborate, fraudulent, and often voluble claims to skill or knowledge)

Carol Brooks

False prophets do not know what the word 'truth' means. Sadly both they and their followers have lost sight of the role and importance of Biblical prophets. Their highly exaggerated and delusional concept of their own importance has led them to portray themselves as hand-picked men and women of God when in fact, their so called “prophecies” are not only extravagant but usually couched in pretentious and grandiose language. What’s worse is that few, if any, actually come to pass. Spoken today - forgotten tomorrow.

To believe that these supposed men or women of God are saved, redeemed, and born-again, is to carry delusion to the farthest limit. On the contrary, their great swelling words should give one a sense of Déjà Moo... The distinct feeling one has heard all this bull before.

    As Ezekiel and Jeremiah said (All emphasis added)

"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?"'" Therefore, thus says the Lord God, "Because you have spoken falsehood and seen a lie, therefore behold, I am against you," declares the Lord God. "So My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will have no place in the council of My people, nor will they be written down in the register of the house of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel, that you may know that I am the Lord God. (Ezekiel 13:6-9 NASB)

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. "Therefore thus says the Lord concerning the prophets who are prophesying in My name, although it was not I who sent them - yet they keep saying, 'There will be no sword or famine in this land' - by sword and famine those prophets shall meet their end!  (Jeremiah 14:15 NASB)

"An appalling and horrible thing Has happened in the land: The prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule on their own authority; And My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it? (Jeremiah 5:30-31 NASB)

Two Kinds of Prophets and Prophecy
The Office of a Prophet usually involves what is called “predictive prophecy”. This means the prophet makes predictions about future events and people they could not know anything about apart from Divine revelation. The men in both Old and New Testaments who prophesied future events (foretelling) are often said to fill the 'office' of a prophet.

The Gift Of Prophecy is commonly seen in the New Testament. Any person who acts as a spokesperson for God and delivers a message that God decreed he (or she) should deliver has been given the gift of prophecy. It is prophecy of a different kind sometimes known as 'forth telling'.

However, regardless of whether the person was foretelling the first or second advent of Christ, the rise of the Babylonians, the antichrist, or simply delivering a message designed to encourage, help, guide, or instruct etc. one or more believers there are however a couple of important factors common to both.

    1.) He or she is a legitimate spokesperson for the Almighty entrusted with a gift of immense importance that is not to be taken lightly.

    2.) A true prophet does not proclaim what tradition dictates, what he thought up himself, what he imagines, wishes, or even hopes were true. He or she is in in direct contact with God Himself in a way that most others are not thus his words cannot ever be in error or a 'mistake.

    3.) No person, regardless of how inspiring their message nor how persuasive the manner in which they deliver it can be considered a prophet unless this message came directly from God. As Peter said "for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God". (2 Peter 1:21 NASB)


Predictive Prophecy
The Bible is the only 'religious' book that speaks of future events with the same certainty that it speaks of past or events happening at the time.

One of the primary reasons for predictive prophecy in the Old Testament was to establish God's credibility because only a Supreme Being can consistently and precisely predict the future in detail. In fact, He actually challenged the idol gods to

    "Declare the things that are going to come afterward, that we may know that you are gods".

And since this was impossible for them, He went on to say

    Behold, you are of no account, And your work amounts to nothing; He who chooses you is an abomination." (Isaiah 41:3-4. Emphasis Added) See God and His Bible

It is a tragedy that so many people are unaware of the truly mind blowing prophecies in the Bible.

For example, Daniel accurately described the succession of empires beginning with the Babylonians, winding through the Medes and the Persians, the Greeks, and the Roman Empire that began to come into power around 241 B.C. Daniel 11 spans the centuries from Cyrus the Great to the reign of the antichrist and the end of the age. See The Rise And Fall Of The Empires

Even more amazingly Daniel Specified EXACTLY When The Messiah Would Appear HERE. (Scroll Down Slightly). No other religious leader's birth or anything about their life has has ever been foretold

And that was far from all. Hundreds of years in advance the many, many, Messianic prophecies in the Old Testament foretold virtually all facets of Jesus' life including His birth, ministry, death, and resurrection - all of which gave us a simple way to distinguish the true messenger of God from those who just claimed to be or were themselves vastly deluded. See Comparing Jesus With Other Religious Leaders... Why Jesus Is Without Equal


The Gift Of Prophecy
The New Testament lists the gifts that potentially would be be manifest when believers came together (Apostles were probably listed first because of their role in establishing churches) 

    And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; (Ephesians 4:11-12 NASB)

    And God has appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues. (1 Corinthians 12:28 NASB)

This type of Divinely inspired revelation has nothing to do with doctrine nor does it have any authority over the church in general. It communicates precise pertinent information or instruction to one or more specific individuals. Agabus' prophecy about Paul's imprisonment in Acts 21:10, and the Holy Spirit's instruction to send Paul and Barnabas to do the work He had called them to do in Acts 13:2-3, are examples of this type of revelation i.e. relevant to only those for whom the message was intended.

Other verses make it clear that the purpose of these gifts (including the gift of prophecy) would contribute something that edified the entire body (the word "edify" simply means to 'build up' morally or spiritually). This was very important because of the instability of those days. Not only was Christianity a fledgling religion but it had enemies in high places. Revelation from God that communicated so much support for believers had to be vital thus it no wonder that Paul told the Corinthians to "desire earnestly to prophesy" (1 Corinthians 14:39)

    But one who prophesies speaks to men for edification and exhortation and consolation. One who speaks in a tongue edifies himself; but one who prophesies edifies the church. (1 Corinthians 14:3-4 NASB)

    What is the outcome then, brethren? When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.  (1 Corinthians 14:26 NASB) (Also see 1 Corinthians 12:7-10)

After Pentecost this function could be carried out by any willing Spirit-filled believer, chosen of God

Now that the canon of Scripture is complete, and we have been told as much as God wants us to know there is little reason for predictive prophecy. However, there are still those who need encouragement and support -  who might be dealing with specific situations or difficulties, which is why the 'gift of prophecy' is still very relevant and very important.

It certainly was to me during an exceedingly difficult time when I was lost, upset and confused. The Father had literally sent me many miles away from home. I was miserable and didn't understand what I was doing there. Then one day, a man I had never seen before who was part of a prayer group I had only heard of a couple of days earlier, came up to me and very quietly said "The Lord said to tell you... " what he said was short, to the point, very relevant and made me realize the situation I found myself in was not for nothing. There was a reason behind it.

A Word of Caution
One of the problems in the church to day is that there are those who seem to sincerely believe that they have heard from the Lord and are not usually shy about sharing the messages with others - often introduced with "The Lord says".

The problem being that the statements tend to be so general that it is close to impossible to figure out which might be from the Lord and which might stem from the person's own head affected by something in their past, their current mood, something they may have heard another person say or write or have heard preached, innate biases, their own wishes and desires, etc. etc. etc.

The list is a long one

I do not know exactly how we are supposed to tell truth from error in cases like this. All I can say is if something pops into your head, it makes sense not to immediately jump up and repeat it. This because not everything that crosses our minds is from the Father and we should not be egotistical enough to think so.

Give yourself a few minutes to 'settle down' because it is often the case that a little  reflection lends wisdom to what one says and how one says it. Or even if one should say anything at all. If the words really were from the Father, that they will not lose their impact if delayed for a few minutes.


Chosen By God Or 'Trained' by Men:
Modern schools of the prophets abound (Even Joseph Smith started one)

Yet, if one were to read every single instance in the Bible of how and when each prophet was called it becomes patently obvious that prophets were NEVER chosen or elected by men, they did not inherit the title nor the ability, nor was it possible for anyone be 'trained' to be a prophet.

Yet, in our world schools to train people (for a fee of course) who are called "to the prophetic" abound. Apparently God "calls" them but leaves the training to someone else. And, many claims to the contrary (one immediately below)  there were NO "schools of prophets" in the Old Testament See Footnote I


Bethel School of The Prophets
Kris Vallotton, Senior Associate Leader of Bethel Church and cofounder of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM). Kris travels internationally training and equipping people to successfully fulfill their divine purpose.

    The School of the Prophets has deep roots in biblical history. In the Old Testament, the prophet Samuel started a school for the purpose of training young prophets. Elisha succeeded Samuel as the head of the school.

And adds that their

... "pre-event package" that includes a "foundational 12-session video course will prepare you to recognize a true prophet from a false prophet..." [01]

That's odd! I thought the Bible had already told us how to do that.

Christian International School of the Prophets:
In 1979, about twelve years after Bill Hamon founded Christian International School of Theology God supposedly challenged him to add the "School of the Holy Spirit" to the Cl ministry. According to their website the 'school' served as a

    "classroom ministry to teach, train, and activate individuals in the gifts of the Holy Spirit"...Three years later, in 1983, Dr. Bill Hamon received the revelation that God was going to raise up a great end-time company of prophets to restore the ministries of the prophet and the apostle. [02]

In May of 1992, Christian International Apostolic Network (CIAN) was formed that is said to offer (All Emphasis Added)

     "... more than credentials and affiliation. It offers activation, training, accountability and relationship with like minded ministers who are moving in the apostolic and prophetic. Members are equipped to fulfill their God-given destiny and make ready a people to establish His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.  [03]

See Dominionism Part II - Bill Hamon, John Wimber, C Peter Wagner, and The Occult Roots of Dominionism HERE

Morningstar School of the Prophets
Rick Joyner who formerly headed up The School of the Prophets has been succeeded by Chris Reed, ex lead pastor of Apostolic Revival Center in Peru, Indiana. Described as a "young prophet" in an article in Charisma News, Chris Reed said that he is "going to be doing a school of the prophets" that will run for three days each month for nine months (September 2021-May 2022). (Emphasis Added)

    "During this time each student will experience twenty-seven days of intense training and activation in the prophetic.. [04]

Tuition for in class training for the nine months comes to $2950 plus meals or accommodation). The article further quotes Chris Reed as saying (All Emphasis Added)

    "We're not trying to appeal to just anybody that's interested in prophecy. We are wanting to see God raise up a group of prophetic voices, not just one man standing out in a generation. We want a company of people with integrity, who know how to hear the voice of God and that can speak to social leaders, social media leaders and political leaders, just like in the Bible," Reed continues. "Daniel 5:12 spoke of how Daniel was learned in dreams and dream interpretation and knowledge and wisdom so much that Nebuchadnezzar listened to what he had to say in the same way Pharaoh did with Moses and Joseph. So, with this school of the prophets, I'm really excited. [05]

Regarding Reed's statement that  they want to see "God raise up a group of prophetic voices, not just one man standing out in a generation", I can only say this - numbers have absolutely NOTHING to do with it. All the men named in the above quote were not members of prophetic groups but were lone individuals who stood out in their generation and made history.

Zoe Ministries
Was founded by Bishop E. Bernard Jordan and his wife Pastor Debra. He established the School of the Prophets in 1985. 

Incidentally, The Zoe Ministries website opens with an invitation to "SIGN UP AND GET A FREE PROPHECY" (As far as I know ALL the prophecies made in Scripture were free, or did I miss the part where Isaiah charged king Hezekiah?). [06] See More about Jordan on Lifestyles of Wealthy Celebrity Pastors And Their Self Serving Shallow Theology HERE


The False Prophets - Then and Now
Then: Unfortunately, the Lord's legitimate prophets often found themselves in the murky world of false prophets. Two examples follow...

    On one occasion one sole prophet of the Lord stood against and opposed 400 prophets who, like the modern day charlatans, prophesied victory in war for Jehoshaphat the king of Judah and Ahab king of Israel. Micaiah, the only true prophet said they would be defeated and so they were. There was a deceiving spirit in the mouth of all the other four hundred prophets. See Footnote II

    False prophets told King Zedekiah that Nebuchadnezzar, the most powerful of the Babylonian kings, would not come against Judah. However Jeremiah's word to the king was that he would be "given into the hand of the king of Babylon!" (Jeremiah 37:17 NASB). As anyone familiar with the Old Testament is aware, Nebuchadnezzar conquered Jerusalem destroying the temple and most of the city in the process. He also deported most of the residents to Babylon. (See Jeremiah 39:1-2)

In other words, the false prophets usually predicted good things - the victories, the blessings etc. to come.

Sound familiar?

And NOTHING has changed from that day to this...

And Now:
NOTHING has changed from that day to this...

When was the last time you heard a modern prophet speak about sin, repentance and holiness (without which the Bible tells us no man will see God). When was the last time you heard one of them warn about God's wrath and judgment?

Most of the bilge spewed out by modern day so called prophets FLATLY CONTRADICT the Scriptures with their messages of hope - great "breakthroughs", "rivers of revival" flowing across the earth, and "major reconciliations between denominations, nations, and peoples"... peacemakers will especially empowered by God "to be a voice for unity between factions and help heal the breaches".  "longstanding breaches between siblings and between parents and their children will be healed ... "working of miracles” that are creative in nature will be seen in hundreds of churches across the world." [07]

And of course there are never ending prophecies about the 'great revival' that God is supposedly going to bring to the earth.

Here are some examples...


20 Prophecies About The Year 2020
In January 2020 Sid Roth host of the television program It's Supernatural, had 20 of the leading names in the prophetic movement record videos to tell everybody what God has shown them about the year 2020.

In this 37 minute video by Justin Peters he presents a synopsis of prophecies. Needless to say, not one of the so called prophets predicted Covid 19 - a GLOBAL pandemic that would upend the planet like nothing else has since WW II. Nor did any of them say a single word about the social unrest of the year.

    Please note: I do not agree with Mr. Peters that all prophecy has been done away with. Thankfully, the gift of prophecy very much exists. See Above. Also See Cessationism


Mario Murillo
In the above video at the 7:45 mark Mario says God told him that the Holy Spirit is saying choose life and let's believe God for a mighty revival.

In April of 2021 he prophesied that

    "...in the next few years a new kind of Christian leader will appear. They will not fit any present mold. They will be the catalysts. They will usher in the next great awakening. A few of them will be in pulpits, but more of them will be in politics, business, science, law, entertainment, music, and a thousand other fields of endeavor. They will not introduce subjects; they will introduce eras."

That was followed by more charismatic gobbledy-gook

    Today they suffer. Their agony is what happens when worlds collide. They see their destiny. It's big and dangerous. A part of them glories in the potential of knowing God intimately and representing Him bravely. They see themselves rebuking kings, tyrants, and warmongers. They see themselves commanding the wealth of the wicked to be handed over to the just. They hear themselves speaking miracles over the hopeless and tormented. Golden ideas, purposes, tactics, and aspirations haunt them like angelic visitations. [08]


What The Bible Actually Says About End Time Conditions
This endless drivel does nothing but lull gullible and Biblically ignorant listeners into believing that virtually everything will be coming up roses - God is going to do great and wonderful things. He isn't! Sad to say, the situation is going to get worse and worse until the Lord has had it up to here. Here are some relevant verses...

    Because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold. (Matthew 24:12 NASB)

    But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. (2 Timothy 3:1-5 NASB) See

    For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. (2 Timothy 4:3-4 NASB)

Paul stressed this as well (Emphasis Added)

    that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? (2 Thessalonians 2:2-5 NASB)

See End Time Revival Or End Time Apostasy?

Although the wrath of God will not fall on you as a believer, there is little question that The Antichrist will make things more than unpleasant. If you compare what Jesus said in Matthew 24 with the Seals of Revelation 6 (yes, they are parallel prophecies), it should become very evident that the Seals represent the persecution of Christians. See The Seven Seals

When, during the persecution of the church under the antichrist, you not only face tribulation but death, you need to remember that it was not the Bible that lied to you, but you yourself who allowed your beliefs to be shaped by wolves in sheep's clothing rather than the word of God.

And no, don't let anyone ever tell you that you will be wafted away to 'heaven' before the going gets rough. You wont.

Does the timing matter? It most certainly does!. In the near future the Church is going to enter a long period of intense persecution and if you are going be able to face the onslaught of the Antichrist then you have to be prepared! Believing the foolishness of the false prophets will NOT prepare you.

See The End Of The Age Part V... The Rapture


Biblical Warnings About False Prophets
It is no wonder that the New Testament contains so many warnings about false prophets and the damage they can do. Jesus Himself warned several times about end time deception saying, for example...

    Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.  (Matthew 7:15 NASB)

    ... See to it that no one misleads you. "For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many.... Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.... For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. (Matthew 24:4-5, 11, 24).

As did the disciples

    But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.  (2 Peter 2:1 NASB)

    Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  (1 John 4:1 NASB)

When Paul warned the Corinthians that two or three prophets should speak and the others were to pass judgment he was making sure that all prophecies conformed to the Scriptures - the standard by which the accuracy of the words were to be tested against. If what the prophet said did not line up with God's word, he was to be considered a false prophet.

Unfortunately all the warning, all the numerous admonishments to be careful, to test, to not accept anything at face value, have all too often fallen on deaf ears. If anything, the situation has gotten worse - at least in terms of numbers.


Modern Day Prophets And Their Wildly Inaccurate Prophecies
In the modern church well-advertised and well-known self-proclaimed 'prophets' abound.

In churches around the country, on national television, or on one or another stage somewhere people like Cindy Jacobs, Bill Hamon, Bill Lackie, Patricia King Mike Bickle, Benny Hinn, Kim Clement, Kenneth Copeland, Pat Robertson and countless others have all, at one time or another made statements - some of which were pretty outrageous, others unbelievably bizarre, and yet others are just plain daft. Many are non-specific prophecies that cannot be tested objectively and could be made up by any imaginative Christian on the spot.

There is even an organization titled the 'Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders' - Bill and Jane Hamon, Dutch Sheets, Bill Lackie, and Cindy Jacobs are all members. Although these people all claim 'revelation' from the Lord they spew an endless torrent of mind numbing claptrap that does nothing but give one a sense of Déjà Moo... The distinct feeling one has heard all this bull before.

Here is a good example of pretentious hot air that means absolutely nothing made by from Bill Lackie - called 'an Apostle/ Prophet' to the local church body and to the nations whose "anointing as an "Equipper and Releaser imparts to people life-changing results in their walk with God," [09].

    In the year 2021 we are being called from a place of revelation to demonstration. Declaring what God is speaking to you will release the revelation to a place of demonstration. This will shift the Church from the "church age" into the "Kingdom age." Old revelation about the mighty Church of Jesus Christ is still applicable, but the now word of God to the Ecclesia is to demonstrate and possess.

    To possess in 2021, the Lord has revealed several keys for us to demonstrate the Kingdom, and to possess or rule what is brought from Heaven to Earth through our anointed Kingdom decrees. With this new positioning in 2021 we will enter into "Ruling and Reigning" with our actions to possess. [10]

Even specific prophecies are never tested although virtually all of them are made in public including on nationally televised programs. It is a sad reflection on the church when Christians have become so used to hearing these people's 'thus saith the Lord', that it seems by the time the next service rolls around everyone has totally forgotten what was said the week or even the day before.

Here are some examples of the wildly inaccurate prophecies floating around today some of which are very specific. What they all have in common is that none of them came to pass.

Benny Hinn
Here is one of the many false prophecies made by Benny Hinn some years ago.

    "The Lord also tells me to tell you in the mid 90's, about '94-'95, no later than that, God will destroy the homosexual community of America.... He will destroy it with fire. And many will turn and be saved, and many will rebel and be destroyed." (Benny Hinn. Orlando Christian Center, Dec. 31st, 1989)

In 1999 He also said something about people being raised from the dead by watching TBN. Apparently their loved ones would bring their caskets close to the television set and pickup the dead person's hands to touch the screen which would bring them back to life.

He also foretold Castro's death in the ’90s

The only problem is that none of this ever happened. Nothing has changed in the homosexual community, no one was raised watching TBN and Castro died in 2016.

But on to more recent days...

Bill Johnson - This is a prophecy called The Party Will Not End posted in September 2009. The prophecy about Redding California was made by Steve Witt and read aloud by Bill Johnson who called Witt a "very accurate and faithful prophetic voice" and a "great encouragement" to Johnson himself.  Watch the video HERE

And that is not all. Watch the demonic activity on stage at the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) 2017 conference featuring Randy Clark (founder and overseer of the Apostolic Network of Global Awakening), Leif Hetland, and Bill Johnson who is a Dominionist, a false prophet and very much a NAR apostle which he has consistently tried to deny DETAILS. But why else would he be at the NAR conference?

    Note: The involuntary movements especially evident in the woman at about the 4:30 mark on are nothing but Kriyas - spontaneous movements that occur after a Kundalini ”awakening”. Kundalini being a concentrated life force associated with the Hindu goddess Shakt - Details HERE. Additionally the screaming at about the 5:10 mark is truly horrifying and certainly was not caused by the God of peace.


Cindy Jacobs - Prophetic Word: Expect Great Shakings and Breakthrough in 2017
who, along with her husband Mike, founded Generals International, is called "a respected prophet who travels the world ministering not only to crowds of people, but also to heads of nations. Perhaps her greatest ministry is to world influencers who seek her prophetic advice" [11]

When someone came up with the idea that the number 17 in Scripture symbolizes "overcoming the enemy" and "complete victory" [12] She and several other 'prophets' jumped on the bandwagon because 2017 was the supposed 'Breakthrough Year'.  This one was made by Cindy Jacobs in January of that year...

    The greatest harvest of souls the earth has known is upon us. Hundreds of thousands will be saved. The Middle East will experience a revival and this will extend into the evangelization of both the Arab and the non-Arabic-speaking Muslims. Look to Egypt to be a leader in this revival and awakening.

    The glory of God is going to be poured out across the United States, and these areas were specifically given as revival centers:

    Los Angeles, California; Silicon Valley, Redding, California; Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; Phoenix, Arizona; a new spring coming out of Colorado Springs, Colorado; Oklahoma; Austin, Texas; Kansas City, Missouri; Madison, Wisconsin; Indianapolis, Indiana; Nashville, Tennessee; Orlando, Florida; Fort Mills, South Carolina; Virginia; Annapolis, Maryland; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; New York City; Boston, Massachusetts; as well as other cities and regions.

Whoops! I almost forgot...

    "Vietnam is preparing to be the "Star of Asia" as far as the numbers of people being saved... Hanoi will become a beacon of light to the nations. [13]

Forgive me if I am wrong but for some reason I am under the impression that although 2017 is long gone Hanoi is still the same place it has been for a very long time. Oh yes, and I live not very far from Seattle but the 'revival' there seems to have escaped my attention (and everyone else's for that matter).


Patricia King - 17 Prophetic Words for 2017
Patricia King, called a respected apostolic minister of the gospel is founder of Patricia King Ministries and co-founder of XPmedia.com. wasn't far behind...

    The use of social media will explode in 2017. Many will grow spiritually through input they receive through social media channels, and many will find Christ. ... Women will rise into positions of influence in 2017... Many women appointed by God will rise to the front lines of the seven realms of influence in society. Women entrepreneurs will arise in particular... There will be an emphasis on children in 2017 in many areas of the world. I saw a vision of masses of children being visited by God. They will naturally move in the supernatural and will have heavenly encounters. [14]

Did I mention that XPmedia.com.advertises a course in "Prophetic Tattoo & Piercing Interpretation' that you can take for $79.00 . Taking the course will enable you to "discover how you can give powerful prophetic words to people through their tattoos and piercings". [15]

Pat Robertson: At about the 22:50 mark on THIS video Pat Robertson told Benny Hinn that God told him that not only would Mitt Romney win the presidential election in 2012 but would be reelected in 2016.

Shawn Bolz in Feb 28, 2020 Elijah List published what Shawn Bolz had to say about the pandemic under the heading "Coronavirus: The Threat is Being Removed"

    God is answering the prayers and cries of the nations and is putting an end in sight.

    The exaggerated, fear-based tactics of both the enemy and several media outlets for political reasons is coming to an end. The enemy has been trying to distract and steal from several equally important purposes and issues by dominating airwaves with conspiracy and fear.

    Even now, several vaccines are coming out as well as a natural "dying out" of the virus itself. The Lord is saying, "I am removing the threat of this. Within a short amount of time, the extreme threat will feel like it is in the way past." [16]

Bill Lackie
Here is a VERY small part of Bill Lackie's prophecy made in 2019 called More Doors Open Than Before.

    Medical Discoveries for 3 Major Diseases in 2019

    Doctors and Medical professionals will be astounded with radical turn arounds from dangerous diseases. Cures and recovery of the sick will reach a new high...

    Revival Is Going To Explode In 2019

    Revival will break out in England. Burton on Trent will be the epicenter of this move of God, and it will spread like a wild fire to cities throughout England. It will then spread to Scotland and Ireland. Revival will break out in North Dakota, and then move quickly to Canada.  Let it Rain!...

    Denominations Will Join Hands for The Exaltation Of Jesus "King of Kings"                               

    Denominations will reach across their theological boundaries and connect heart to heart and hand to hand. A  blending of the Body of Christ will release an unconditional love healing many in the Body of Christ....

    Hollywood will prepare to bow their knee to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  Hearts will be healed, bodies will be healed and loneliness will be dispelled. This revival will be known as a replica of Azusa Street Revival. [17]

Trump's Reelection
And, of course, the "prophet" Lackie was quick to predict Trump's reelection.

    Threats in great number have been hurled at our President. I see a very large angel in place to protect him and his wife. The Lord says, "This is my man and the apple of my eye. I am using him and his wife to raise a new standard within the United States.  Through them, I am purging the doctrine of evil that has permeated the United States.  Pray continually for their safety and the hypervigilance needed to protect them. The heart of a group of people in the United States are angry, because he has confronted their evil.” [18]

 I am pretty sure if the Tasmanian devil showed up and ran for election he would get massive support from so called Christians - as long as he put an R after his name, it wouldn't matter how much he ran around with women of dubious character, paid less taxes than the janitor, spouted oodles of misinformation during a pandemic, stirred up an attack on the Capitol, and has fewer brains than God gave two fleas. They are too blind to realize that Trump is the epitome of evil and a perfect example of what is wrong with this country. It’s all about winning politically. Christ has nothing to do with it.

Sadly, Lackie was only one among many who predicted Trump's reelection.

Jeremiah Johnson, founder of The Altar Global, cited an earlier vision in which Baby Boomers "lift Donald Trump up" and upheld his presidency as he'd predicted throughout 2020. Johnson wrote to his tens of thousands of followers Saturday that "God HATES" Biden's policies and Christian supporters of the Democrat should not mock his prophecy as "false" because they face punishment for "eternity." (At least he had the decency to publicly apologize for which he is said to have faced a huge backlash from fellow evangelical Christians.)

Mario Murillo claims that "refusing to accept Biden's victory is a test of loyalty to God" and that God is going to judge you if you voted for Biden. He then tries to tie the election to the Exodus. To the Exodus? Seriously? [19] Watch The video
 

 


Johnny Enlow (Restore7) - co-author of The Seven Mountain Prophecy, The Seven Mountain Mantle and The Seven Mountain Renaissance has said that "his "vision" of Republican former President Donald Trump "seated on a throne holding a golden scepter... [with] a golden crown on his head" was Trump's "PRESENT status from heaven's perspective". [20]

In other words Trump is still president of the United States.

Joshua Fowler of Legacy Life Church Senior pastor.
These so called prophetic words were said by Fowler at Todd Bentley's commissioning ceremony led by C. Peter Wagner.

    Todd [Bentley] the Lord has made you to be a detonator. I see cables going around the world to different nations. I see Great Britain being set ablaze by the power of the God. I see even as you go into places that God says you will go you even with the glory, like William Branham. And the Lord says you will carry a portal anointing and whatever city you go over there will be a portal. There will be a portal that will be opened up, saith the Lord. The Lord says you will detonate, and BOOM BOOM BOOM there will be a release of glory through the nations says the Spirit of the Lord. WATCH (Fowler begins speaking around the 8:13 mark)]

Grace Community Church Bath.
One post on the Grace Community blog in Britain says that in the summer of 2010 they received what they believes to be "some significant words from the Lord concerning what He is doing and bringing to our nation".

    "England awake!  Rise up you sleeping giant. You have slumbered long enough.  It is time to rise up and shake off the chains that have bound you.  No longer shall you be imprisoned, immobile and indifferent.  No longer shall your light lie unseen, unknown and unwanted.”... I tell you it is time to WAKE UP and turn your dreams into destiny.  It is time to WAKE UP and remember who I have called you to be. ...

    "Once you brought hope and life to nations.  Do you think my plans for you have changed? England, while you have lain paralyzed and frozen beneath the weight of fear; while apathy has dragged you down into a sickly sleep; I have not ceased to work in you.  As you have slumbered I have raised up a generation of warriors – old, young and yet to be born.  As I have raised them, so now I call them and release them. Now is the time for them to walk the land with MY fire in their eyes, with MY power in their hands and with MY love in their hearts.” [21]

Hmmm! I guess England just rolled over and went back to sleep.

I am afraid that there is only so much of this I can read before the urge to throw up gets overwhelming. It beats me how some people sit there and soak this garbage in month after month, year after year, without ever checking whether any of these so called prophetic words were ever fulfilled.


Testing The Prophets
Both Paul and John cautioned not to turn our backs on prophecy but to carefully examine and test everything then hold onto that which is good.

    do not despise prophetic utterances. But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil. (1 Thessalonians 5:20-22 NASB)

    Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1 NASB) 

Luckily, when it comes to predictive prophecy it is not particularly difficult to distinguish between prophets who have been sent by the Lord and those who have not. The Old Testament emphasizes not one, but two tests of a true prophet.

1) This first one is usually misconstrued. It says

    'But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.' "You may say in your heart, 'How will 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 come about or come true, that is the thing which the Lord has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him. (Deuteronomy 18:20-22 NASB)

However, one needs to read the words very carefully because, contrary to popular opinion, they do not teach us that any prophet whose words come true is a true prophet. The text only says that any prophet whose words do not come true is a false prophet. And even if their words happen to come true...

2) Deuteronomy 13 tells us the acid test of a true prophet is his adherence to the Word of God.

    "If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, 'Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,' you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the Lord your God is testing you to find out if you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. (Deuteronomy 13:1-3 NASB)

Regardless of any sign or wonder the prophet may demonstrate, if what he or she says contradicts God's word in any way the prophet or "dreamer of dreams" was to be put to death,

    "... because he has counseled rebellion against the Lord your God who brought you from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, to seduce you from the way in which the Lord your God commanded you to walk. So you shall purge the evil from among you. (Deuteronomy 13:5 NASB)

A word of wisdom from Gregory Koukl of 'Stand To Reason Ministries'. (Excerpted from Do Not Despise Prophecy, But...)

     - . when a prophecy is given, if we are to test prophecies, what that means is, at least minimally, that you have got to write the prophecy down and pray about it a little bit. How many churches do you know that give prophecies regularly that have a log of the prophetic words uttered in their services--or the alleged prophetic words--so that they can pray about them and test them to see if they are from God, or if it is prophetic in a futuristic sense, to wait and see if it actually comes true? I have never heard of a single church that did that. I wonder why they don't do it - ..

    I think we should also put the name of the person who gave the prophecy in parenthesis at the end of the prophecy. Put down their address and phone number, too. Most people don't even know whether a prophecy is fulfilled because they don't write it down; they just forget about it next week because it doesn't matter what God says in a congregation from week to week the way most people treat prophecy. It doesn't really matter. We just say, Hallelujah. Praise the Lord. Glory. Then everybody forgets about it. If we wrote it down we wouldn't forget about it, and six months later we would find out that it was bogus.


The Excuses
But, of course, there are always 'excuses' for false prophecy

Rick Joyner actually once said the general level of prophetic revelation in the church was not very high - probably the truest statement he ever made. (All Emphasis Added)

    Bob Jones was told that the general level of prophetic revelation in the church was about 65% accurate at this time. Some are only about 10% accurate, a very few of the most mature prophets are approaching 85% to 95% accuracy. Prophecy is increasing in purity, but there is a still a long way to go for those who walk in this ministry. This is actually grace for the church now, because 100% accuracy in this ministry would bring a level of accountability to the church which she is too immature to bear at this time. It would result in too many Annaniases and Sapphiras" [22].

Kris Vallotton, who prophesied that Trump would be president for a second term, apparently believes that Deuteronomy 18:22 only applied to the Old Testament. In an article entitled How I processed my inaccurate prophetic word he quoted 1 Corinthians 14:29 - "Have two or three prophets speak, and have the others pass judgment.” then said  (Emphasis Added)

    God gave us a way to judge prophecies because He didn't expect people to be infallible. God put checks and balances into the body of Christ.

    In the New Testament, there's nowhere that says getting a false prophetic word makes you a false prophet. It's all about the heart! False prophets are people who lead people astray on purpose. [23]

The New Testament doesn't specifically have to say a false prophetic word makes you a false prophet as Kris Vallotton claims. There is absolutely NO evidence that anything has changed from the time of Deuteronomy 18:22 to this day.

Think about it for a moment, when you can neither read their minds nor their hearts how in the world are you supposed to know whether a prophet is intentionally leading people astray?  All you have to judge by is whether or not his or her words came true. And how in the world are we supposed to know which of God's supposed revelation or pronouncements is accurate? Come to think, of it how does the so called prophet himself know which are and which are not?.

    Or does it make more sense to believe that that these prophets/apostles are not 100% right because they are not speaking for God who is always 100% right?

"An appalling and horrible thing Has happened in the land: The prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule on their own authority; And My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it? (Jeremiah 5:30-31 NASB)


Mistakes?
I have heard 1 Corinthians 13:9 (For we know in part and we prophesy in part (Gk. meros) used as the reason for false prophecies - scores of which are floating around today. The explanation was that "prophesy in part" means that the prophet may mix error with truth.

The Greek word meros means a portion or segment of a whole - a share. The New Testament tells us of Ananias, who sold a piece of property "and kept back some of the price for himself, with his wife's full knowledge, and bringing a portion (Gk. meros) of it, he laid it at the apostles' feet." (Acts 5:2 NASB). The disciples gave the resurrected Jesus "a piece (Gk. meros) of a broiled fish; (Luke 24:42 NASB). etc.

Although crucial, none of of God's prophesies are ever wrong or inaccurate however, they are often incomplete - only a piece of the complete picture.

Even the greatest prophets of the Bible revealed only that God wanted us or them to know - not all there is to know. For instance they knew only something of the sufferings of Christ and the glories that were to follow but never had the complete picture. Much was hidden from them including the inclusion of the Gentiles into the church (Ephesians 3:4-6) and the fact that Christ would abolish death (2 Timothy 1:10).

In other words, they 'knew in part' and 'prophesied in part'. However, when the "perfect" or the kingdom of God comes then we shall know fully. However, at that time there will no longer be any need for prophecy.

However, regardless of how many false prophecies they make they keep telling the sheep that follow them that incorrect statements doesn't mean they are "false prophets" and keep urging them to keep faith in them.

The fact that people do is mind boggling.

They seem not to realize that not only are they doing untold harm to God's people but also making the church look very foolish in the eyes of unbelievers. Nor do they seem to realize that they will not get away with it for very long. Their followers may be blind but God isn't and He has long decreed the fate of false prophets and those who listen to or heed them


The Fate Of False Prophets

    'Thus says the Lord God, "Woe to the foolish prophets who are following their own spirit and have seen nothing.  4)  "O Israel, your prophets have been like foxes among ruins.  5)  "You have not gone up into the breaches, nor did you build the wall around the house of Israel to stand in the battle on the day of the Lord .  6)  "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. (7)  "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?"'"  (8) Therefore, thus says the Lord God, "Because you have spoken falsehood and seen a lie, therefore behold, I am against you," declares the Lord God. (9)  "So My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will have no place in the council of My people, nor will they be written down in the register of the house of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel, that you may know that I am the Lord God. (Ezekiel 13:3-9 NASB)''

Peter said they would bring swift destruction upon themselves. (2 Peter 2:1)


The Fate Of Those Who Listen To or Heed Them
Considering the Lord made it an extremely simple matter to distinguish false prophets from genuine ones, listeners are in no way excused because they were lied to. Giving credibility to these fabrications will result in the hearer to be as severely judged as those who actually prophesied. As Jeremiah warned,

    "Therefore thus says the Lord concerning the prophets who are prophesying in My name, although it was not I who sent them - yet they keep saying, 'There will be no sword or famine in this land' - by sword and famine those prophets shall meet their end! "The people also to whom they are prophesying will be thrown out into the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and there will be no one to bury them - neither them, nor their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters - for I will pour out their own wickedness on them. (Jeremiah 14:15-16 NASB)

In other words, if after testing the words of the claimed prophet we find him or her to be false, we need to walk away - just as far and as fast as we can.


Was Jonah A False Prophet?
Although we do not know how exactly the Word of the Lord 'came' to any of the prophets including Jonah, we know that he was told to "cry against Nineveh" because of their wickedness (Jonah 1:2). Jonah was however, very likely familiar with Jeremiah 18 that stated that if any nation were to turn from doing evil, they would not suffer the consequences God planned to bring down on it.

    "At one moment I might speak concerning a nation or concerning a kingdom to uproot, to pull down, or to destroy it; if that nation against which I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent concerning the calamity I planned to bring on it. "Or at another moment I might speak concerning a nation or concerning a kingdom to build up or to plant it; if it does evil in My sight by not obeying My voice, then I will think better of the good with which I had promised to bless it. (Jeremiah 18:7-10 NASB)

This didn't sit well with the prophet and probably accounts for the fact that the he took off in the opposite direction when first told to go to Nineveh and warn them of God's impeding judgment. I have heard many self-righteous, butter wont melt in my mouth people who wonder how 'Jonah could possibly have done something like that.

Very easily.

It is actually hard to condemn Jonah for his actions. The Assyrians, who had carted the northern kingdom of Israel into exile, were one of the most cruel kingdoms in ancient days with a terrible reputation for sparing no one. Jonah's feelings would have been akin to telling a Jew to go Nazi Germany and tell ling the Gestapo that if they repented they would be spared.

After the incident with the whale, Jonah was again instructed to "Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and proclaim to it the proclamation which I am going to tell you." Following which, Jonah who had probably developed a distinct aversion to fish,

    ... arose and went to Nineveh according to the word of the Lord. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly great city, a three days' walk. Then Jonah began to go through the city one day's walk; and he cried out and said, "Yet forty days and Nineveh will be overthrown." (Jonah 3:2-4 NASB)

But the fact that the city was not overthrown in 40 days is often used by today's false prophets to explain why their 'prophecies' also fail to come to pass.

Jonah's prophecy was a conditional one that, thankfully, applies to us as much as it applied to the Assyrians. Verse 5 says "Then the people of Nineveh believed in God; and they called a fast and put on sackcloth from the greatest to the least of them"

    When God saw their deeds, that they turned from their wicked way, then God relented concerning the calamity which He had declared He would bring upon them. And He did not do it. (Jonah 3:9-10 NASB)

However conditional prophecies only apply to sin and judgment etc. Inasmuch as if the person repents, the Lord stays His hand. If they do not, He does what He said He would do. In this case the Assyrian's repentance didn't last and they soon relapsed into their old ways. It fell to the prophet Nahum to proclaim to the Ninevites that Divine trouble was brewing and it was only a matter of time before it came to the boil. They were once again the target of God's wrath -

Jonah's mission was a call to repentance, that typified God's message to the world. Nahum's mission was to pronounce on Nineveh its doom... a forerunner of the judgment to come.

This is so much a matter of common sense that I have to wonder why it is necessary to write about it at all.


 
Footnote I - Schools of Prophets in the Old Testament????
I have absolutely no idea where the phrase "school of prophets" comes from. For example many believe that  there was a school of prophets under Samuel's leadership in Ramah (I Samuel 19:19-20). However, the word "school" does not even exist in the Old Testament - much less that there was a 'school of prophets' under "Samuel's leadership".

1 Samuel 19:20 uses the Hebrew word lahaqâh (used only this once in the OT). . According to Strong's lahaqâh is probably from an unused root meaning to gather or an assembly. It has been translated group, company or assembly in virtually all major versions.

The three verses from the second book of Kings all use the same Hebrew word bên that according to Strong's means 'son' (as a builder of the family name), in the widest sense (of literal and figurative relationship including grandson, subject, nation, quality or condition, etc.) Holman Bible Dictionary says "Sons of the prophets" suggests

    a community or guild of prophets. The most extensive use of the expression occurs in the Elisha stories where the prophet is portrayed as the leader of the prophetic guild. In that capacity, Elisha cared for the needs of a prophet's widow (2 Kings 4:1-7 ), agreed to the building of a common dwelling (2 Kings 6:1-7 ), and presided at a common meal (2 Kings 4:38-44 )....
    Amos' famous declaration, "I am not a prophet, nor am I the son of a prophet" (1 Samuel 7:14 NAS) is probably a declaration of independence from the prophetic guilds of his day.

One other word used for a number of prophets in one place is chebel

    "Afterward you will come to the hill of God where the Philistine garrison is; and it shall be as soon as you have come there to the city, that you will meet a group (Heb. chebel) of prophets coming down from the high place with harp, tambourine, flute, and a lyre before them, and they will be prophesying.  (1 Samuel 10:5 NASB)

    When they came to the hill there, behold, a group of prophets  (Heb. chebel) met him; and the Spirit of God came upon him mightily, so that he prophesied among them.(1 Samuel 10:10 NASB)

This is not the easiest to understand because chebel actually means a twisted rope, as when Rahab let the spies down with a rope through her window on the city wall  (Joshua 2:15). The Concordant Literal Version translates chebel as "cord". In other verses it has been rendered 'portion'. See Joshua 17:5 and 19:9. Perhaps the word was used because in some way the prophets 'worked together' just as the strands of a cord or rope does. But this is simply speculation

The point being that there were no "schools of prophets"
where they were trained and 'activated in the prophetic'.. {PLACE IN TEXT}


Footnote II - A Deceiving Spirit In The Mouth Of Prophets.
Jehoshaphat  (king of Judah) wanted a word from the Lord when he and Ahab (king of Israel) decided wage war against Ramoth-gilead. Accordingly Ahab gathered 400 prophets and asked whether or not he should go in to battle. The answer (apparently from all 400) was "Go up, for God will give it into the hand of the king." 2 Chronicles 18:5)

However, Jehoshaphat asked if there was a prophet of the Lord that they could inquire of and was told by Ahab that yes, there was one man Micaiah, son of Imla (not to be confused with Micah of the Book of Micah). However, Ahab hated him for, as he said, Micaiah never prophesied good concerning him but always evil. Jehoshaphat apparently prevailed and they sent a messenger to fetch Micaiah. Here is what transpired

    Then the messenger who went to summon Micaiah spoke to him saying, "Behold, the words of the prophets are uniformly favorable to the king. So please let your word be like one of them and speak favorably." But Micaiah said, "As the Lord lives, what my God says, that I will speak." (2 Chronicles 18:12-13 NASB)

At first Micaiah said they would succeed but when the king adjured the prophet to speak nothing but the truth, here is what he said (All Emphasis Added)

    (18) "Therefore, hear the word of the Lord. I saw the Lord sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing on His right and on His left.  (19)  "The Lord said, 'Who will entice Ahab king of Israel to go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead?' And one said this while another said that.  (20)  "Then a spirit came forward and stood before the Lord and said, 'I will entice him.' And the Lord said to him, 'How?'  (21)  "He said, 'I will go and be a deceiving spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.' Then He said, 'You are to entice him and prevail also. Go and do so.'  (22)  "Now therefore, behold, the Lord has put a deceiving spirit in the mouth of these your prophets, for the Lord has proclaimed disaster against you."  

    (23) Then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah came near and struck Micaiah on the cheek and said, "How did the Spirit of the Lord pass from me to speak to you?"  (24)  Micaiah said, "Behold, you will see on that day when you enter an inner room to hide yourself."  (25)  Then the king of Israel said, "Take Micaiah and return him to Amon the governor of the city and to Joash the king's son;  (26)  and say, 'Thus says the king, "Put this man in prison and feed him sparingly with bread and water until I return safely."'"  (27)  Micaiah said, "If you indeed return safely, the Lord has not spoken by me." And he said, "Listen, all you people." (2 Chronicles 18:18-27 NASB)

And as the record shows Ahab was killed in that battle but Jehoshaphat returned in safety to his house in Jerusalem. {PLACE IN TEXT}
