The passing of Bob Jones, one of the “fathers” in the prophetic movement, has caused me to ponder the criteria God laid out for recognizing a prophet.
When the message of a modern-day “prophet” begins to resemble that of occultists, it’s time to beware. Consider the following quotes.
Between the years 2001-2008, I was the webmaster for the Elijah List, arguably the largest distributor of false prophecy in the world. This is my testimony.
Bob Jones prophesied that the glory of God would fall on the church in 2012. It grieves me to report that 2012 came to a close and the prophesied “appointed time” did not occur.
Joel’s Army was lauded by Bob Jones as “instruments of God’s mercy”, but a quick glance at the book of Joel reveals that they are anything but that.
