“Profitcy” Updates 2023
Because by nature I’m cynical and and impatient with foolishness, I’ve always loathed the work of the modern day “prophets”.
They are having a new renaissance since adopting the ways of Christian nationalism, anti vax rhetoric, and unwavering support for Donald Trump.
They claim to be speaking from the foot of Sinai, but they are really yowling out their hindquarters telling people what they want to hear and will pay for.
It caught my eye when Eric Metaxas, (supposedly a serious author), tweeted out the following video and excitedly reported that this lying soothsayer will be on his radio show this week.
God told this prophet of another Trump triumph to come, the fall of Biden, the breakup of Harry and Meghan (it’s her fault) and of course, more people dying suddenly from vaccinations.
There’s more, but you have to listen yourself and suffer as I did.
Are the people listening simply stupid or can deception override intelligence?
Why does no one put these carny shows to the test?
I watched about 3 minutes and couldn’t stomach any more.
Nausea is always a risk when dealing with this stuff…
Metaxas long ago forfeited any claim to be a serious author, even before he became a suckup to whatshisname. His Bonhoeffer tome was universally panned by real B scholars.
I’m convinced from my reading and observation that nationalism no matter the country has demonic origin. All the way back to early in the OT. The current American version is really sad. I would’ve thought that at least some of these folks would’ve known better. I was wrong…
Metaxas is an evangelical asshat…but those hats look like snappy fedoras to way too many…
The servants of the lamb are out in the fields of the world risking their lives; manifesting the gospel of Christ and modeling the life of Christ making disciples with great joy and great suffering through the strength of great prayer.
These exploits of faith and love will never be marketed or made known within the channels of the spirit of anti-christ inhabited platforms built by the flesh and glorying in the flesh.
These beautiful stories comprised of the many practicing the one another’s of Christ’s love are available if you seek them out from true mission oriented groups .
I believe the proliferation of these self appointed false workers is an indirect judgment of God for those who wish to remain in and retain such insane levels of unbelief and acts of tomfoolery.
Such a way of life is unbecoming of sons daughters , servants and saints and those who have bern seduced by the ways of Babylon will demonstrate their true identities of virtue by coming out of her according the exhortation of Revelation.
O man! These guys exhaust me intellectually. They mislead folks making predictions using limited knowledge and information. The geopolitical world is way more complicated that they know.
Bible says to beware of false teachers and prophets.
After all of the chaos in both the church and government in the last few years, I would say that deception overrides intelligence.
“Are the people listening simply stupid or can deception override intelligence?”
I wish it was the former, but I’ve seen it amongst the very intelligent. I have tried to understand the process of what in some contexts is known as radicalization, but I think I understand it under the category of demonic influence, possession or something in between.
I admit to a relatively high view of the devil’s activity in the world. What would make a better success in all the world from the devil’s perspective than to bring down the USA?
I lost count of the number of times he said “I “.
He is like Alexander the coppersmith to me. May he attain the rewards.
I saw that image posted on the Charismanews page and couldn’t stomach his 10 or 20 predictions…talk about tickling ears. I used to think these folk were just deluded or they were like your “crazy uncle”…he’s family but watch out for him. If I was on Facebook I already would have been thrown off their site for tearing them a new one. Jean may have it right that there is demonic activity going on in them.
“Fool me once, shame on you…fool me twice, shame on me”
They have no shame.
This guy isn’t family…unless you are a parasite…then he’s kin…
I’ve often wondered what would happen to these “prophets” if we used the Old Testament standard of 100% accuracy (death sentence). That would certainly get them to consider their ways.
Only in my dreams, by the way!
I’m trending that way Michael. Seriously, sometimes I wonder if those who write crap over there are just pulling our leg a la The Onion.
Boxes, boxes, boxes
