MODERN DAY PROPHETS ARE SERIOUS FRAUDS ;
The reason we are called christians is because we follow christ . Jesus was humble , sociable , non materialistic , readily available and only occasionally used donkey transport to move great distances. By walking on foot among multitudes jesus was able see Zacheus atop a tree , call him down and save him . There are those who touched his robe and got healed . He visited and dined with sinners . The bible tells us not to follow miracles , but let them happen in our lives . It tells us only God is holy and mighty .
This begs the question , where did the self proclaimed 'mighty' prophets come from ? Why do they lay so much emphasis on miracles and dooms day prophesies instead of the word ? An obviously mentally unhinged pastor on the West Coast of Africa attempted to become the second man , after Jesus , to make the humanly impossible feat of walking on water .
Pastor Franck Kabele, 35, convinced his congregation he was capable of reenacting the very miracles of Jesus Christ. He decided to make a demonstration on Gabon’s beach in the capital city of Libreville.
Pastor Kabele said he had received a revelation he could achieve what Jesus was able to. He told his followers he would cross the Kombo estuary by foot . Two steps into the water and Kabele drowned .
At Ibadon zoo in south-west Nigeria, a self-proclaimed Prophet claimed to be able to do what the Daniel of the bible did by walking into a den full of lions.
He put on a long red robe and proceeded to enter the cage full of lions at the Zoo .
Within seconds the lions ripped the hapless Prophet to pieces .
Like 'prophet' Dr Owour of the doomsday prophesies , California doomsday preacher Harold Camping lived to be 92 years old and died not having seen any of his prophesies fulfilled .
Dr Owour's contention that God revealed to him the westgate attack but did not show him the location presupposes God is vague , which is a fallacy .
On assumption of office , pope Francis extolled christians to be frugal . Present day prophets , preachers and pastors are largely materialistic , something unbiblical . There is too much opulence on display . One only needs to see the cars in prophet Owours motorcade to appreciate the finer meaning of wealth and opulence . The dark tinted top of the range mercedes benz compressors , dark tinted toyota V8 landcruisers make nonsense of jesus foot walks and interaction with the lowly placed . The prophets security detail is too large and intimidating . Between points A and B nobody lays eyes on him . Is he offended by the riff raff that give him a cult following ?
I may be wrong , but i believe only the president has the legal right to have the way completey cleared by his escort . Why is the prophet allowed to usurp that right and inconvenience road users ? Why is he averse to having other people share the same hotels he likes staying at when he is in residence ? What is he afraid of , hiding behind tinted glass , having massive security around him and staying in seclusion ? Christ had no need of this , did he ?
Seismic science makes it possible for scientists and geologist to predict a hurricane or earthquake that will occur ten years from now . It is not therefore news or prophetic for Dr Owour to predict earthquakes 'unless we repent' . Who exactly should repent considering sin has been there since creation ?
