(OPINION) ETH – An evangelical prophet named Jeremiah Johnson recently told the Christian Post that he has received death threats from Christians following the recent apology to his followers last Thursday for “inaccurately prophesying” that President Donald Trump would win a second term.
Johnson went further to call out Christians for their idolatry of the outgoing president, revealed in a statement on Facebook on Sunday. Johnson says that the attacks have revealed to him that “parts of the prophetic/charismatic movement are far SICKER than I could have ever dreamed of.” He went on to say:
“Over the last 72 hours, I have received multiple death threats and thousands upon thousands of emails from Christians saying the nastiest and most vulgar things I have ever heard toward my family and ministry. I have been labeled a coward, sellout, a traitor to the Holy Spirit, and cussed out at least 500 times.
We have lost ministry partners every hour and counting,” “I have been flabbergasted at the barrage of continued conspiracy theories being sent every minute our way and the pure hatred being unleashed. To my great heartache, I’m convinced parts of the prophetic/charismatic movement are far SICKER than I could have ever dreamed of,” he explained. “I truthfully never realized how absolutely triggered and ballistic thousands and thousands of saints get about Donald Trump.
It’s terrifying! It’s full of idolatry! If I helped to prop up this ideology concerning him, I will need to repent again and stir up even more hell.” The original apology stated: “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,’” Johnson confessed. “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.” On Sunday, Johnson said he was “beyond relieved that President Trump was only an assignment for a season and never a mandate.”
“Revival is never dependent upon who sits in the White House but rather who sits on the Throne in Heaven. I will continue to preach the Cross and the power of the resurrection. I will continue to help prepare the Bride to meet our Bridegroom,” he noted. “As we head into 2021, expect me to be more committed to the gospel and making disciples than ever before. By God’s grace, I will walk in a greater measure of humility and repentance than ever before. I will learn from my mistakes and seek correction from Godly leaders always.”
