Sounds like Ryan is letting some personal problems into his prophecy. There are no "critics" in this story. Hit the block button and don't listen? These are more hallmarks of cult-like false prophet/teacher circles. Instead of being willing to listen to the Bible they just shut everything out and stick their heads in the sand. People who demand biblical accuracy are marginalized as "legalists" who "needed a deeper revelation of the spirit." LeStrange would unfortunately continue:
"As they built, they lost a borrowed ax. It fell into the water and sank. There is always opposition to building: things happen, people quit, emotions get attacked. There is no attack where there is no progress"It is vital that you recognize the powers of hell and break them." -- Ryan LeStrange
Opposition? Attack? The powers of hell? Relax Ryan. An axe fell into the water. The supernatural and spiritual side of this is in the raising of the axe head not that it fell into the water to begin with. This is an inane extrapolation beloved. This is what false prophets do. They take a simple story and pretend God is giving them new revelation that is extra-biblical. The reality is he wanted to give this feel good mushy prophecy and tried to leverage the story of the axe head to support it. LeStrange now goes for the kill:
"Tap into the realm of power by walking in the gift of faith. Faith accesses heaven's supply. God made an ax-head float because of the tenacity of these radical prophets. Let's fully comprehend this miracle; the molecular structure changed! This is no big deal to God. He can and does override the natural law with spiritual law. Debts are cancelled, money comes, body parts are provided, tumors disappear, anything can and will happen in the realm of glory. -- Ryan LeStrange
What? Notice the not so subtle shift here. God did not make the axe head float because of the tenacity or faith of the builders. The text does not even remotely suggest that. They turned to Elisha yes but the purpose of this miracle is to show what God can do even in the minor things in our lives. To take that and turn God into some kind of cash cow for our whims is demonic. Only the wickedly deceitful heart of the false prophet can the story of Elisha making the axe-head float be a sign that God wants to cancel your debts, make you rich, disappear your tumors or grow missing body parts.
After the article is a glowing biography of Ryan LeStrange's prophetic bonafides. His website will allow you to come into alignment under him as your apostle/prophet. All for a nifty annual fee that can be paid in monthly installments. Hey, you can't join the cabal for free. Selling the office of apostle and prophet, which he clearly does not really hold. If he did he would not misrepresent God so badly. He would not take a story such as the floating axe head and turn it into a false prophecy about how everyone who happens to be reading his garbage will be magically blessed with favor beyond measure. Well you know, if they leave their thinking behind, wink wink. No thanks Ryan. Stop prophesying from your wicked heart and hear the Word of the Lord!
