I am writing this on the morning of Tuesday, January 12, 2021. There continues to be those within the evangelical community who are prophesying and claiming that God has told them that Donald Trump will still win the election and be President. This simply is not going to happen and they will be proven wrong once again. How many times does a person have to be wrong before they will admit they did not hear from God?
It is especially egregious because they are promoting prophecies that puts God at odds with the foundation of our governing laws on which our freedoms and democracy are established. Under the constitution of the United States Joe Biden was confirmed as the winner of the election. All 50 States have certified their votes and the Congress has certified the votes of the electoral college. It is over!
Their prophecies are not only a display of defiance for our governing laws, but defiance of God’s Holy Word, because their prophecies sanctify Trump as God’s man, even though Donald Trump’s character is at odds with everything scripture reveals about our faith. According to scripture, Christians should reject a man of Trump’s character.
“ Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart…In whose eyes a vile person is contemned…” ~ Psalm 15:1 & 4
Donald Trump is vile person, and those who dwell in God’s presence do not sanctify him as God’s chosen. Even the world sees the evilness of Donald Trump and they marvel at evangelical support of this man. Even after Donald Trump incited a mob of far right extremist to commit domestic terrorism, these so-called prophets continue to double down and claim God is speaking that Trump will continue as President.
At this point they are not simply making a mistake of thinking they have heard from God. At this point they are sinning against God with their false prophecies. They are bearing false witness and undermining the truth of God.
Prophecy within the church is subject to the doctrine of God and is to be judged accordingly.
The written Word of God is authoritative and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. There is nothing in these Trump prophecies that aligns with the sound doctrine of scripture. The truth is, their prophecies are inspired by the words of Donald Trump, and not God.
It is DonaldTrump who was claiming long before the election that it was rigged. It is Donald Trump who has sown division and who has constantly refused to accept the results and who has stirred up many of his followers to turn on their country’s democracy. If DonaldTrump had never made such a claims, and would have accepted the results of the election and agreed early in the process to a peaceful transition of power, many of these prophecies would have never been uttered.
Their prophecies are inspired by Trump, and not God. And that is why they are false and will be proven false, yet again in 8 days from the time of my writing this post.
They have not heard from God!
