The word of the Lord came to me: "Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel, who are prophesying, and say to those who prophesy from their own hearts: 'Hear the word of the Lord!' Thus says the Lord God, Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! Your prophets have been like jackals among ruins, O Israel. You have not gone up into the breaches, or built up a wall for the house of Israel, that it might stand in battle in the day of the Lord. They have seen false visions and lying divinations. They say, 'Declares the Lord,' when the Lord has not sent them, and yet they expect him to fulfill their word. Have you not seen a false vision and uttered a lying divination, whenever you have said, 'Declares the Lord,' although I have not spoken?" -- Ezekiel 13: 1-7 (ESV)
We have written extensively about the network of false prophets that perpetuate their stranglehold on the sheep by propping each other up. These are the folks you see at Charisma News, the Elijah List, the Kansas City Prophets, the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and places like Bethel Church. They are becoming household names in Charismania circles. James Goll, Chuck Pierce, Jennifer Leclaire, Kim Clement, Rick Joyner, General Cindy Jacobs and so many others make their living on fleecing the flock through their false visions and lying divinations. If you have never seen them operate live it is breathtaking in how demonic it is. Using parlor tricks and psychic manipulations, they practice clairvoyance and sorcery more than prophecy. They turn the prophetic into a Magic 8-Ball from God. Should I leave to start that ministry? It is decidedly so. Except they have to tack on to their lies, "thus sayeth the Lord." Without the appearance of piety they are exposed as nothing more than a cheap carnival barker hocking his wares to the unsuspecting rubes.
In pursuit of this pietistic appearance they have developed their own prophetic language that is loosely based on biblical words but devoid of any biblical truth mixed with mystical gobbledygook designed to make the rubes, I mean Christians, buy in. In the process they mangle the Bible and any sense of biblical truth. This unbiblical mangle-dese is the language of false prophets everywhere. There is usually a "shift" going on somewhere, possibly in the "atmosphere." Red seas are parting and apparently there is a promised land out there for everyone to take possession of. For some reason it only seems to apply to those lucky enough to be listening to the false prophet. It is all of course absurd. The link above is by false prophetess Lana Vawser and the title alone is brilliant mangle-dese:
"Prophecy: Governmental Anointing in Double Portions"
Ahhh yes the ole double portion prophecy. A staple of the false prophet language. While the title grabbed my attention the actual article/prophecy is staggering in the mangle-dese we have outlined so far. Come, let us reason together so we might be able to better spot when we are being lied to by snake oil salesmen disguised as prophets.
