"It is the LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him. That prophet or dreamer must be put to death, because he preached rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from the land of slavery; he has tried to turn you from the way the LORD your God commanded you to follow. You must purge the evil from among you." (Dt 13:1-5).
Well, I just watched the Inauguration of Joe Biden, who was sworn-in as the 46th President of the United States of America. How horrifying that Americans on both sides of the aisle do not properly fear the Lord, nor respect His direct, clear, inspired, unassailable instructions for wise voters operating in a Constitutional Republic, summarized for all who can read and think, in Exodus 18:21.
With regard to this horrible, rebellious error...
Every single false prophecy about Donald Trump (who did not qualify under Exodus 18:21, either) has now been proven to be sinful, irreverent and disrespectful to the authority of Almighty God.
Firstly, as I pointed out FIVE years ago, in public, most of these predictors spoke "thus saith the Lord" with alleged prophetic words that encouraged Christians to act in direct disobedience to the written word expressed in Exodus 18:21. They were wrong ON THEIR FACE because they were unscriptural!
If their UNSCRIPTURAL false prophecies had accidentally come to pass, today, most of you would be SOOOOO DECIEEEEVED that I would lose all hope you could ever be saved from yourselves.
Secondly, and less importantly, as I pointed out FIVE YEARS AGO, in public, whether or not the 50/50 odds of an election prediction "came to pass" or not, it would not change the most obvious, glaring problem with them... that they were violations of Scripture under Biblical law.
Here is the silver-lining: I get to draw everyone's attention to the FACT that these fraudulent, knock-off predictions were ABSOLUTELY INCORRECT!!! Hopefully, since that is incredibly obvious, we can direct everyone's attention BACK to what was easily discernable 5 years ago, by simply paying attention to Exodus 18:21.
Every person who false prophesied about President Donald Trump needs to PUBLICLY repent for the following:
1) Taking God's name in vain, especially by false prophecy, which is a serious, deadly violation of God's law. (1Kg 18:16-46, Ex 20:3-6, Dt 5:7-10, Dt 13:1-5, Matthew 7:21-23).
2) Doing extraordinary damage to the faith of God's sheep and undermining the credibility of the current New Testament authority of the Holy Spirit upon His delegated (Ephesians 4:11-13) ministry gifts.
Considering the severity of God toward this particular sin given in Mosaic law (a death penalty) offending clergy should, at the VERY LEAST, be censured from any further pulpit ministry, lose their ordination credentials, and be removed from the church by public excommunication...if they do not humbly REPENT for this serious sin against God and His holy church.
America is under the indirect wrath of God and we should expect His indirect judgment to increase in severity across the coming years until mass repentance begins to happen in our churches.
This repentance BEGINS with ministers who have misled God's people into errors of ignorance (willful and otherwise).
Leviticus chapter 4 offers guidance to us, even today, on what we should do when we discover that we have been sinning in past years, even though we did not realize we were sinning at the time.
Leviticus chapter 4 principles of what to do with "sins of ignorance" will be essential in the days to come if the American church is to pivot back toward God's law and away from the heresy of antinomianism's cheap grace. America ABSOLUTELY CAN NOT BE RESTORED if this does not take place.
Exodus 18:21 must be respected again among professing Christians and the wicked thinking of situational ethics must be rejected!!!
The reason false prophecy is SO COMMON in the American Charismatic church is because YOU DO NOT TAKE IT SERIOUS ENOUGH and YOU DO NOT GIVE PROPER CONSEQUENCES. You do NOT fear God enough! You do not respect Him enough!
YOU DO NOT GIVE CONSEQUENCES BECAUSE OF FALSE AGAPE LOVE AN CHEAP GRACE!!!
We imprison men in all 50 states for "impersonating a police officer". Who is more important? Who has more authority? God or a police officer? How can we allow such a disparity of justice without the mind-numbing lies of antinomian heresies?
If impersonating a police officer is even understood as evil by the heathen, then WHY ON EARTH shouldn't Christians think "impersonating a prophet" or worse "speaking on behalf of God" is a much more horrible crime?
But Jesus' threat to false prophets in the New Testament era can still be read in Matthew 7:21-23.
