The third clear marking of an NAR false prophecy is the flagrant disregard for mangling the Word of God. Note that Jennifer would have us believe that God said to her in support of this inane, silly, selfish prophecy that his grace is sufficient for you. This is the typical abuse you will see in a false prophecy. A biblical fragment will be used to give the appearance of piety and scriptural soundness but one must do the work of a Berean beloved. The verse that this fragment appears in is our key verse today. Let's provide the missing context:

So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited. Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. -- 2Corinthians 12: 7-10 (ESV)

What Jennifer Leclaire does here is akin to Scriptural assault. These fantastic verses are the Apostle Paul first telling us about revelations God gave him of the third heaven. These are the revelations he says could cause him to become conceited. To prevent this carnal reaction, God allowed a thorn in his flesh, a messenger from Satan to torment him. This in turn forces Paul to rely upon God and reminds him of the proper order of things and avoiding conceit. Being human, Paul begged God for relief from this suffering but each time the Lord said that His grace would be sufficient for him. This forces Paul to realize that his strength in Christ is contingent upon his weakness in the natural, upon his own devices. What a beautiful and powerful set of Scriptures for all Christians to learn and be encouraged by. What does Leclaire reduce them to? A Pseudo-Christian Ponzi scheme of favor. Beloved, God's grace being sufficient for us does not promise us supernatural favor, other than a deeper reliance upon Him. Not to pursue these ways over and through our temporal problems. Quite frankly this twisting is disgusting. Jennifer would continue:

So What Does Mega Really Mean? Mega means "of the highest level of rank, excellence or importance," according to Merriam-Webster. I like some of the synonyms better: astronomical, colossal, galactic, enormous, gigantic, herculean, jumbo, king-size, monumental, supersized, tremendous, mammoth, miracles and massive. -- Jennifer Leclaire

Jennifer then relates the Biblical account of the Roman Officer who asked Jesus to heal his servant. Jesus agrees to come visit the servant but the officer responds that because of the authority Jesus has he need only speak the word and his servant would be healed. Jesus declares He has not seen faith like this in all of Israel and healed the servant right then. Great story and one that deserves better than the conclusion Jennifer gives it --

"Mega faith makes Jesus marvel!" -- Jennifer Leclaire

Ugh. This is what is known as proof texting. Jennifer's wickedly deceitful heart convinced her that God said May is Mega-May so now she scours the Bible to find anything that might support it. Abusing whatever stories she can to pretend God is really speaking when He is not. The point Jesus was making after seeing the faith of the Roman Officer is not as much about his faith as in the lack of faith He has seen from Israel. Was he impressed by the unbeliever's faith in His authority and ability to heal? Sure. Did Jesus consider this faith astronomical, colossal, or herculean? Not if you bother to read the text. The only thing mega about this is the mega twisting Jennifer does to try and leverage this story to fit her false prophecy. Unfortunately this was not the only abused Scripture:

We get the concept of mega grace from Scripture. Acts 4:33 (AMPC) tells us, "And with great strength and ability and power the apostles delivered their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace (loving-kindness and favor and goodwill) rested richly upon them all." -- Jennifer Leclaire
