For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. - Romans 11:29 (ESV)
I know this is a couple of years late, but the above linked story escaped me in 2021 but still needs addressing today. For the background we have to go back further, to 2020 and the presidential election. The Prophetic Industrial Complex of the apostate NAR church system went crazy prophesying a second Trump term. It seemed that anyone who was a false prophet was assuring us hat God spoke to them directly to assure them that Trump was going to beat Joe Biden. God however, will not be mocked and these vain predictions were all carnal as Trump lost by seven million votes. This event had the potential to be a real problem for churchianity as false prophecy sells really good and now they were exposed for the hucksters they are. Some took it upon themselves to apologize and pretend to repent. Without turning from false prophecy however there was no repentance. They were sorry but only because they got it "wrong." Some like Jeremiah Johnson pretended to quit the business but really just rebranded themselves to fleece the flock in different manners. Still the "leaders" decided the get together and draft what they would call prophetic standards, as a way to be able to point to something when critics come calling. Never mind that all the standards they need, are found in the bible and not in the carnal hearts of deceitful men. Before people think I am too judgmental, here are just some of the initial signers to this document:
Dr. Michael Brown, John Burton, Kris Vallotton, Jennifer LeClaire, Robert Morris, Lary Tomczak, Steven Strang, Randy Clark, Daniel Kolenda, Mark Chironna, Stacy Campbell, James Goll, Mark Driscoll and Patricia King.
Was Benny Hinn unavailable? This is a who's who list of insanely false prophets and NAR dominionists along with their chief apologist, Dr. Brown. So, this is the group that is going to establish prophetic standards? Jennifer LeClaire once prophesied about a sneaky squid spirit and Brown provided cover for it on his radio show. The disgraced fugitive from church discipline, Driscoll? He stole over 200,000 dollars from his former church and he is now establishing standards? Kris Vallotton and his poverty spirit or Morris as one of the biggest tithing whores in the church? Strang, Tomczak and Burton are three of the largest political activists disguised as Christians today. Who would follow standards from this clown car? The link above is to the website they created just for housing this document. Let us reason again as I will select portions to discuss because so much is self-serving.
"WE BELIEVE that the essence of the spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus, hence the ultimate goal of prophetic ministry is to exalt the lordship of Jesus Christ, even though we recognize that not every prophetic word will specifically point to Him (see Rev. 19:10; 1 Cor. 12:3)." - Prophetic Standards
So, when Jennifer LeClaire prophesied that she was going to release the angels of abundant harvest in timing with the release of her book by the same name, how exactly was that exalting the lordship of Christ? How did that point to Him? How does the prophecies Strang supports, which target and abuse the current president, relate to the testimony of Jesus? When Stacy Campbell violently shakes her head while pretending to prophesy, there is no exaltation of Christ. You see beloved, it is easy to write standards down but to live up to them is what matters. When this gaggle of false prophets got together it didn't matter what they wrote. To be taken seriously, they should have repented from pretending to hear from God and speaking on His behalf.
