I can’t decide if this is funny or sad.
Pastor Jeremiah Johnson, a self-described “prophet” who said recently that Dr. Anthony Fauci was a “big rat” sent by Satan to thwart Donald Trump and that COVID is a “demonic attack” against Baby Boomers, and that his prophecies are accurate even when they’re not, is now apologizing for getting a big prediction wrong.
Johnson previously said Trump would win a second term. Two months after the election, he’s finally conceding and admitting there was a miscommunication somewhere down the line. He must have misinterpreted God because there’s no way God was wrong.
My aim in this public apology is twofold. First, I would like to repent for inaccurately prophesying that Donald Trump would win a second term as the President of the United States. I refuse to blame the saints and say, “It didn’t come to pass because they did not pray enough.” Nor will I proclaim, “Donald Trump actually won, so I was right, but now it has been stolen from him.” I believe the first statement seeks to alleviate the prophetic messenger from the responsibility of what he prophesied, and the second statement is filled with potential pride and an unwillingness to humble himself and admit he was wrong.
I want to go on record: “I was wrong, I am deeply sorry, and I ask for your forgiveness.” I specifically want to apologize to any believer in whom I have now caused potential doubt concerning the voice of God and His ability to speak to His people. As a human being, I missed what God was saying; however, rest assured, God Himself is NOT a liar and His written Word should always be the foundation and source of our lives as Christians.
He went on to explain where he may have screwed up. It’s not very convincing and it involves dreams about the L.A. Dodgers.
However, in October of 2020, I believe that I misinterpreted the prophetic dream I had concerning the three events that would happen. The first two parts of the dream obviously came to pass. The LA Dodgers won the World Series and Amy Coney Barrett was installed as a Supreme Court Justice prior to the 2020 elections. Donald J. Trump being re-elected DID NOT happen and I have to own that and repent.
God Himself anointed Donald Trump in 2016 and then removed him from office in 2020 because of his own pride and arrogance. Joe Biden’s becoming the 46th President of the United States is meant to humble not only Donald Trump but all those who worshipped him more than they kept their focus on Jesus Christ.
Uh-huh… sure. That has to be it. It was the pride, not the racism, bigotry, cruelty, incompetence, and desire for so many Americans to get excise a cancer from our collective lives.
A better apology would have included an admission that he has no special powers, and no ability to get predictions from God, and that prophecies are just lies Christians tell themselves to feel better. Instead, his fauxpology gives him room to make more predictions in the future after taking a little break to reconnect with the Bible.
What a liar.
