So let us clear away the silly straw man talking points. I am not anti-prophecy. I am anti false prophecy. I am very much against anyone who fears God so little that they think nothing of lying about things He has not said. I am also not anti-Charismatic. I am however anti-Charismaniacal. I am against people like Bolz who make a mockery of the charismata. Who think they can teach the gifts of the spirit when only the spirit determines who gets what gifts and when. I am also not cessationist. I am however against false churches like Bethel who abuse all of the gifts of the spirit. God does not disperse words of knowledge through your smart phone. Everyone cannot prophesy. Are you getting the point Shawn? YOU made a prophesy 25 days ago that has proved to be demonstrably false. You claimed God said things that He clearly did not say. Or are you calling God a liar? I think it is obvious that you are the liar Shawn. It is not a religious spirit that discerns these things because a child could see how false you are. The indwelt Holy Spirit leads us into all truth and you sir do not measure up.

Let us not overlook the platform. Charisma News and Stephen Strang are also to blame. They gave Bolz the platform to prophesy this falsely and now at the link above we see they are tripling down on this nonsense. Strang says:

"Shawn tells me on my podcast that the response to the story about him on Fox News has been incredible. He says it was Fox News' No. 2 story, with millions of people reading it. If nothing else, this shows that people are hungry for God, perhaps even more so now that the coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc." -- Stephen Strang

The shamelessness knows no bounds. Because Fox News ran the original prophecy story, Bolz brags that millions of people read it. This of course does not show a hunger for God but rather a fear of the virus and a desperation for any good news about the future. Bolz was ready and willing to provide that ear scratching for his own personal gain. Realize that the millions of unsaved see that a month has gone by with the virus only gaining more steam and killing more people. This is what the bible means when it says that false prophets cause the unsaved to blaspheme the way of the truth. Nonetheless, Strang continues:

Shawn's prophecy had two major points, he says. The first is that the enemy will flee as the church rises up. God has called the church to respond to COVID-19, not sit back passively and merely let it happen. "God's going to turn the tide of this thing," he says. The second point of the word is that millions will not die from this. Fox News chose not to report on this, Shawn says, because their readers couldn't relate to that. "I prophesied that this will not become a pandemic with pandemonium and millions dying," he says. "They're going to say that millions will die, but millions won't die, especially in America." Shawn says that it's almost every day that major news sources cite a health professional who claims between 20 and 60 million people will die from this. Shawn says this will not happen." -- Stephen Strang

This is where the false prophet tries to rewrite history. On February 28 Shawn Bolz said nothing about the church having to rise up to cause the enemy to flee. He said God told him the virus was ending -- full stop. On February 28 Shawn Bolz said nothing about millions not dying. He is trying to move the goal posts now that his original prophecy has been proven to be bogus. Instead of "God said it is over" we are seeing Bolz claim God is saying millions will not die from it. He seems to try and blame Fox News but his original prophecy was on Charisma News and said nothing about this million person issue. Bolz is so confused by his own mendacity that he openly admits that he prophesied it would not become a pandemic but then he defines pandemic as mass pandemonium and millions dying. Unfortunately, that is not the definition. A pandemic simply means a disease that covers an entire country or the world. Under the correct definition, coronavirus is most assuredly a pandemic, making Shawn Bolz proven false on yet another claim. Then it appears he tries to get cute and claim that experts are saying 20-60 million people will die. I have not seen any such predictions. I think he may be referring to the estimates of how many will contract the virus. Notice of course that Strang never addresses the fact that this prophecy is already proven false! That is because Strang promotes anything that exalts the current administration and the NAR dominionism he idolizes:

"Instead of churches just putting information up online, God is going to move churches to actually engage, build community and foster connection online, Shawn says. Churches that only want to remain information-focused in the online space will eventually disappear. "It's a preparation for an entire revival that we would have all of our technology in order and the practice that we need because God's going to bring half of the revival--it's going to happen virtually," he says. "... And the second thing is that I believe right now there's about to be an economic upturn, not downturn. I believe the Lord showed me that Trump would win another term in office. "... I saw the financial condition of our economy. And in the second or third--by the end of the second year and beginning of the third year of his next four years in office, we're going to hit one of the greatest times, if not the greatest time, of economic stability in our history. That's setting us up for the next 20 years." I'm so grateful for people like Shawn who are standing up and speaking prophecy despite the media's contrary narrative. I only hope that the church will choose to heed these prophets instead of the media." -- Stephen Strang

So according to Strang via Bolz, the church is going to engage the community yet the church that Shawn attends has canceled their healing rooms and every other in person activity. Here is the official Bethel position on the virus, from seven days ago:
