Next they are asked about how they cultivate their teams and the answer is that they cultivate a culture of risk. That even as parents you don't want your children to be afraid. Yet don't we want to cultivate a fear of the Lord in our children? Is that not the beginning of wisdom? They then do an unplanned short prophetic worship song. Jenn sings about going higher and the greater things but it has more to do with her than with God. The larger problem is afterwards she explains that she was just singing what she felt. That is exactly what prophetic worship is. The Bible tells us that the heart is the most deceitful thing above all else and Jenn Johnson just admitted that whatever she feels becomes her worship song. To compound the problem however is she then tags it with the "prophetic" label, thus turning her feelings into a direct revelation from God when He has said no such thing. This would be horrific enough in one's personal life but Jenn and Brian lead hundreds if not thousands of people in worship like this and that ought to be frightening for us as believers.

As the video winds down Brian and Jenn reveal that they believe behind all worship must be a correct view of who the Father is. That he is so kind and jolly. The best picture of Santa Claus is how Jenn describes Him. Jenn claims that God has this big belly laugh that she then tries to imitate. As if this was not disturbing enough, she encourages people to pray that God show them what He looks like as God even though the Bible says we would die if we saw Him as such. She sums up her theology by saying that she believes God wants to bring the church back to that "I'm in love with you" mentality. No mention of sin. No mention of repentance. No mention of anything that deviates from her fanciful, unscriptural, fairy tale version of God. That is what fuels her worship.

The interview closes with Jenn "prophesying" what God has shown her during the course of the interview. She claims that God revealed Himself holding a mirror under His armpit. That as we are worshipping, "You are amazing, You're wonderful, You're incredible" those words would hit the mirror and bounce right back to us. According to Jenn, this God was saying, "and so are you." Because we all know how keen God is on sharing His glory, right? How utterly narcissistic yet how apropos. It is a fitting way to end the interview and this analysis because prophetic worship has very little to actually do with God and everything to do with us. It is born out of listening to our own deceitful hearts and then claiming it came from God. If we are wrong, we brush it off as if it does not matter that we lied about God. That we misrepresented Him. That we laid hands on a 12 year old boy that was really a girl. That the risk of being wrong is to be celebrated as boldness while the fear of being wrong must be from the devil. Yet that fits the Santa Claus God that Brian and Jenn Johnson have been taught. The same false god they worship. Shall we go out to war with Ramoth-gilead? Absolutetley! The heart of the Father is never to be negative! Just ignore those annoying Micaiah's in your life who are actually the ones trying to encourage you. You see beloved, the modern seeker friendly church has conflated encouragement with what we want to hear instead of what sayeth the Lord. Prophetic worship is the same exact belief system, only set to music.
