So glad someone addressed this! (see link at bottom of post)
I have received his “prophetic” dreams from two different people this week. One of the videos was entitled “Bad September, Disaster November.” These doom and gloom prophecies cloaked as “warning prophecies” strike fear in the hearts of people. These videos have been watched by over a million people!! THAT is concerning!
His 3rd video is especially concerning… it is very sin conscious, “prophesying” the judgment of God against sinners, all of which he equates with preaching the gospel. That is NOT the gospel… the Gospel is the good, glad, happy news that literally makes a man jump for joy!! God said we ALL have been reconciled and He remembers our sin NO MORE!
His “prophecies” are called Brace Yourself. And at the end of the 3rd video, he says he was told that we were not only to brace ourselves but endure to the end.
The good news is Jesus’ endurance IS your endurance. There is nothing more you need to do but REST in His endurance… IT IS FINISHED! The term “brace yourself” causes people to worry, fear, and prepare for something bad to happen. That is NOT the heartbeat of God for His beloved (ALL mankind!!).
The other day I posted this about Jeremiah 29:11 and I think it bears reposting right now in light of these videos…….
Jeremiah 29:11 – I KNOW the thoughts that I think toward you saith the Lord. Thoughts of peace and not of evil to give you an expected end!
We say God knows if some evil thing will befall me. NO, He does not! He has chosen to limit Himself to only knowing the good about us… the peace about us!! He doesn’t think about any evil concerning us or that might happen to us. We say He’s touched with the feelings of our infirmities. Again, NO, He’s not!!
He was definitely touched by the feelings of our infirmities on the cross – He identified, He absorbed ALL of our sin, death, sickness, disease, poverty, fear, addiction, lack of peace, anger, etc. in Himself. And He settled ALL of that ONCE and FOR ALL!
His thoughts and what He KNOWS regarding us are only what is true about us…. wholeness (peace) and good things! A future full of hope – or joyful expectation!!
As for these videos telling you to “brace yourself,” I would definitely recommend “bracing yourself” against these types of fear prophecies!!!
How do you do that? Find out what God has to say about who He is (spoiler alert – He IS Love!! Not Love balanced by justice or judgment… NO, 100% Love!). And find out what He has to say about sin (spoiler alert – He took it away from ALL the world!! 100%). And find out what He has to say about your future (re-read Jeremiah 29:11 above again!). God is GOOD!! ALL the time!!
To prophesy is to say what God is saying….. these videos DO NOT say what God is saying. Unfortunately, many people accept these kinds of gloom and doom “prophetic words” and believe them, and speak them forth, and becomes their experience in life (i.e., bad September and Disaster November) [Prov. 23:7]
