False Prophesies = False Prophets
“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” – 1st John 4:1
“As for the prophet who prophesies of peace, when the word of the prophet comes to pass, the prophet will be known as one whom the LORD has truly sent.” Jeremiah 28:9
Predications, hunches, discernment, sign of the times are one thing, speaking on behalf of God is in a whole other league.
There were many claiming to speak for God who said Trump was not going to lose. That he was going to deploy the military and use the Emergency Broadcasting System but it never happened. I was in a prayer group and several of the member kept repeating these things and were quite disappointed and almost depressed.
“The prophets are prophesying lies in My name,” replied the LORD. “I did not send them or appoint them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a false vision, a worthless divination, the futility and delusion of their own minds. Jeremiah 14:14
“This is what the LORD of Hosts says: “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you. They are filling you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD.” Jeremiah 23:16
In regard to the 4 possibilities you supposed, I believe only one holds water. That is your number 2 as I recall.
#1 NO – If Kim Clement was truly speaking for God, he would not have erred in regarding two terms. So #1 can’t be accurate. 80 or 90% is still flawed. Almost right isn’t good enough for God,
#2 MAYBE – It is quite possible, Trump might win in 4 years which would be a 2nd term for sure like you excellent point regarding Jesus coming from Bethlehem, Egypt and Nazareth. Time will tell.
#3 NO – Trump supported Christians in many ways. I doubt Biden will. I hope I am wrong but highly doubt it considering his allies and 47 yr track records. Therefore, I don’t think the Jehu analogy works. Kim’s and other prophesies weren’t and can’t be conditional or they aren’t prophecies but predictions. Yes, prayer moves God. But I don’t believe there was any mass or significant prayer movement for Biden. He could hardly muster a large group for a rally. Yes, I understand Trump had a lot of people against him but there wasn’t much support for Biden like there as for Trump and previous winners like Obama in 2008.
Hezekiah’s prayer moved God to change his mind but I don’t see how that changed a legitimate prophecy,
Jonah’s call was to preach and prompt to call the Ninevites to repent. I don’t see the major prophecy change.
I highly doubt Biden is God’s anointed President or better choice a result from Christian prayer considering he is pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, and many in his admin are professed atheist and removing God from government like they did prayer from school and so forth.
Most evangelical Christians and Pastors favor Trump:
“This year’s survey found that more than two-thirds of evangelical pastors plan to vote for Trump (68%). LifeWay found that Pentecostal (70%) and Baptist pastors (67%) are more likely to vote for Trump than pastors in the Restorationist movement (49%), Lutherans (43%), Presbyterian/Reformed (24%), or Methodists (22%).
The racial divide among evangelical voters holds for pastors too. Only 6 percent of African American pastors say they support Trump, while a majority (61%) will be voting for Biden.”
I don’t understand the ethnic split but it is what it is for the time being but it’s changing and I hope it continues to be a more diverse party in the mold of Candace Owens and Senator Tim Scott.
“but test all things. Hold fast to what is good” 1 Thessalonians 5:21
So either Mr Clements’s prophecy is in the ‘yet to be fulfilled’ category or false category.
Many others should be debunked. The false prophets need to repent or be shunned as being put to death isn’t quite in keeping with our modern society.
We Christians need to major in the majors not the minors. I am not saying the election wasn’t important nor that Christians shouldn’t be good citizens but rather we shouldn’t get lost in or distracted with false prophecies.
A friend of mine shared this video with me Out of Shadows. The guy is a professed believer. Before that, he was living the American Dream. Lucrative career, beautiful home with pool in Southern California, was friends with the most successful producers, directors and actors in Hollywood. When he visited their houses, he started noticing a lot of occult symbols. It started him on a path which resulted in uncovering the connections between Hollywood and Washington, DC, and to the occult and child trafficking. This is not a Republican or Democrat thing. This is long, but worth the watch. He used his own money to produce this, with some donations. He is not making a profit from this. https://www.outofshadows.org
I encourage everyone to watch it. We need to think what we think about. We need to think about how we think about things. We need to band together against this kind of stuff and for the Gospel and glorifying God.
