Recently I heard about a Christian youth conference in Anchorage, Alaska, called Fusion, that drew more than 800 teenagers and church youth workers from across the state. In addition to performances by nationally known music artists, the conference featured “training classes” on a variety of topics to help students grow in their faith. Two of these classes promised to teach them “how to hear God’s voice.”
I was delighted to see that three days ago Buzzfeed featured my blog post “Fortune Cookie Prophecies,” which contrasts the silly, vaguely worded predictions made by so-called prophets in the New Apostolic Reformation with the startling, specific predictions made by genuine prophets in the Bible.
When I was a child, I’d hear my friends make crude lunchtime jokes about “ABC” food–as in, “already been chewed.” But in the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), some prophetic words are “ABT”–as in, “already been tested.” To see what I mean, check out this article, posted on a blog published by Charisma Magazine.
I was disturbed this week by Kris Vallotton’s article titled “5 Tests of a True Prophet.” I was even more disturbed to see that his article was published by Charisma Magazine.
Respected NAR prophet Cindy Jacobs sent an emergency prayer alert to her followers, on Thursday, warning that a major terrorist attack–on the scale of 9/11–is being planned against the United States. There are many problems with her pronouncement.
