Shredding Yet Another Defense of the False Prophetic

By       (Page 4 of 4 pages)   No comments

I am not going to get into the nitpicky here because some of this is true. Prophets and prophecy can certainly strengthen the body if God actually said what the message is. If prophecy is righty focused on and grounded in the Word then certainly they can proclaim it with great power. I want to briefly comment on the prediction business because that is largely what new breed prophets do. First, here is the story of Bar-Jesus:

But Saul, who was also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him and said, "You son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, full of all deceit and villainy, will you not stop making crooked the straight paths of the Lord? And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind and unable to see the sun for a time." Immediately mist and darkness fell upon him, and he went about seeking people to lead him by the hand. -- Acts 13:9-11 (ESV)

Paul did not predict the future by stating the present fact that God was going to take his eyesight. The painfully ironic thing here is that Bar-Jesus was punished as so because he was a false prophet! He was not restored to the office of false prophet. He was repudiated harshly. Cantor finishes:

"Final Word. False prophets go to hell or, at least, invite "swift destruction upon themselves" (2 Peter 2:1c). They do not go around the world preaching the gospel and loving Yeshua. False prophets lead people away from Yeshua, as do false teachers. Just as a teacher's doctrine can change over time, and he can make mistakes in his exegesis and hermeneutics, so, too, can a believer make a mistake in prophecy, repent and be restored. There can be no question that the New Covenant brings a higher level of mercy in regards to mistakes in prophecy and that believers are never referred to as false prophets." -- Ron Cantor

Wow. Cantor actually has the nerve to make equivalent hearing from the Lord and a teacher's doctrine. While he is right that our doctrine may change he is dead wrong in saying God will change. One can make mistakes in exegesis or hermeneutics but claiming God said something He never said? That is not the same thing. Cantor tries to finish with the same false foundation he laid at the start. To him it is simple. If he determines that you truly love the Lord then you cannot be called a false prophet because you are a believer. To me if you continually lie about what the Creator of the universe has or has not said? I would never refer to you as a believer at all.
