A prophetic word

elijah-priests-baal-82854-printFortunately for us, a new prophet has arisen and said the following about Donald Trump:

I was in a time of prayer several weeks ago when God began to speak to me concerning the destiny of Donald Trump in America. The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said,“Trump shall become My trumpet to the American people, for he possesses qualities that are even hard to find in My people these days. Trump does not fear man nor will he allow deception and lies to go unnoticed. I am going to use him to expose darkness and perversion in America like never before, but you must understand that he is like a bull in a china closet. Many will want to throw him away because he will disturb their sense of peace and tranquility, but you must listen through the bantering to discover the truth that I will speak through him. I will use the wealth that I have given him to expose and launch investigations searching for the truth. Just as I raised up Cyrus to fulfill My purposes and plans, so have I raised up Trump to fulfill my purposes and plans prior to the 2016 election. You must listen to the trumpet very closely for he will sound the alarm and many will be blessed because of his compassion and mercy. Though many see the outward pride and arrogance, I have given him the tender heart of a father that wants to lend a helping hand to the poor and the needy, to the foreigner and the stranger.

Wow. Just wow really. I mean, who would have thought? Donald Trump, the trumpet of God here and now in our age. I feel amazed and in awe and wonder….and I just puked a little in my mouth typing that…but hey, it is a prophetic voice so who am I to judge it?

Isn’t that really the problem with the modern prophetic voices that everyone and their brother seems to have? Everyone has their voice and their faith and who are we to question it? It seems lately that all you need to do is attach “prophetic” to whatever you are saying and doing and BAM! you have a prophetic voice or a prophetic witness. It is as simple as adding a bit of Emeril’s secret blend to make everything acceptable. BAM! it’s prophetic. Even this posting is. I know, I put it in the title. (Note, this is sarcasm and I in no way would claim to be a prophet or to speak prophetic words, do prophetic deeds, etc). If we take the OT as an example, I don’t think that there were more than 100 or so mentioned as prophets. Let that sink in. In the entirety of the OT there might be 100 identified as prophets. I am pretty sure that 20 minutes on Google would show that there are far more today that claim to be. Then again, who am I to judge?

To be fair, I have done absolutely no research on the man claiming to be a prophet. I am not concerned with it as his message is so far off base that I can not find any way that it aligns with scripture. Saying the The Donald is going to act as the trumpet of God is to scandalous for even a biblical story, and there we have prophets dancing naked, marrying prostitutes, and asking is foreign gods are on the toilet among other things. It is obviously ridiculous and out of line with anything that we find in scripture. The closest thing I can find is Balaam’s ass who spoke…but I don’t believe that God has opened the Donald’s mouth, and I certainly don’t believe that he has seen an angel on the road. But who am I to judge?

This is to be short as it is loaded with sarcasm and is meant to be, but don’t miss the truth that is here. Labeling something as “prophetic” does not make it so. Being convinced that your cause is just does not make it “prophetic”. If anything, throwing around the term serves only to cheapen and dilute the meaning. Calling everything “prophetic” only illustrates how desperate we are from a word from God, that we will hear and listen to anything rather than hoping to hear His will. We all talk about wanting to hear the still small voice of God, but then go about our lives acting in a manner that would cause Him to speak through the storm for us to notice. Maybe it is best if we, as individuals, quit labeling (often times self labeling) everything under the sun prophetic, and allow the church to properly discern, with our input and voices to be sure, what is and what is not. Better to be cautious about calling a thing prophetic lest we end up like Balaam and having to take advice from an ass.
