Wow, that is some publishing deal he got from God! He actually has the nerve to put this on his webpage that sells his book! Also, Taylor organizes fake healing crusades and credits Benny Hinn a great deal, just to get a gauge on the scope and source of his many heresies.
Lionel Blair fancies himself a "chief apostle" despite the Bible bestowing that title upon Jesus Himself. His videos always seem shot from some basement somewhere but he has a following. He has claimed the ridiculous supernatural experiences such as angel feathers, gold dust and gem stones. As indicated earlier, he is a tithe abuser, as he told his people their job is to give him the tithe not ask where it goes. So Blair got to interview Taylor last night and talk about one of his favorite subjects; dreams. Here is the audio link to the interview:
Now there was plenty of absurdities to discuss, like when Taylor states that Lucifer was a son of God or when he proudly proclaimed that he "doesn't care about being accurate" when prophesying. There was also a moment where he believes that the Matthew verse that says God will shorten the days for the sake of the elect means He will control the sun and the moon to literally shorten the length of each day. This of course is NOT what that verse means as God is prophesying that He will need to shorten to overall length of time, the days, of the end of the age. As bad as these things are, there was worse. You see David Taylor created a new biblical office last night. Throughout all of history, apparently God was waiting for David Taylor to reveal that there is an office of the dreamer. I kid you not; listen to the interview. Taylor claims that the Lord told him that he needed to restore the lost office of the dreamer. He then claimed that the "attacks" he received over the "Super Bowl thing" were a direct result of his trying to restore that office to the Body of Christ. Apparently we can add false martyr to the growing list of titles he lays hold of. In order to try and support this assertion he mangles a few Bible passages we need to straighten out here. He primarily claims that Joseph was a "dream officer." Taylor then conflates the verse at the end of the story, about God wanting to save many lives, with the fact that Joseph had dreams. These are the verses he speaks of:
But Joseph said to them, "Do not fear, for am I in the place of God? As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. - Genesis 50: 19-20 (ESV)
Joseph is not speaking about the dreams here. He is speaking about the totality of events, and specifically to the evil part his brothers played in it. Taylor claims it was the office of dreamer that led to the saving of many lives. The larger point of course is that there is no establishment of the office of dreamer here. That is patently absurd. Here is the establishment of the offices in the church:
And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, helping, administrating, and various kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all possess gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? But earnestly desire the higher gifts. - 1Corinthians 12: 28-31 (ESV)
So does David Taylor, a man who could not correctly prophesy a 50-50 guess, expect us to believe that God has revealed to him something He hid from the Apostle Paul when he was writing under direct inspiration? Seriously? Taylor continued however by claiming the office of dreamer is about saving lives. That God may show someone in a dream somebody dying or being killed but if there is a dreamer with him to interpret then God will be merciful and He will say "I have found a ransom. That's what we dream officers are - a ransom. Just like it says in the Book of Job - that the dream officer is God's ransom." Let us take a look at the verses he so casually referred to here:
In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men, while they slumber on their beds, then he opens the ears of men and terrifies them with warnings, that he may turn man aside from his deed and conceal pride from a man; he keeps back his soul from the pit, his life from perishing by the sword. "Man is also rebuked with pain on his bed and with continual strife in his bones, so that his life loathes bread, and his appetite the choicest food. His flesh is so wasted away that it cannot be seen, and his bones that were not seen stick out. His soul draws near the pit, and his life to those who bring death. If there be for him an angel, a mediator, one of the thousand, to declare to man what is right for him, and he is merciful to him, and says,'Deliver him from going down into the pit; I have found a ransom; - Job 33: 15-24 (ESV)
