“Be wary of false preachers who smile a lot, dripping with practiced sincerity. Chances are they are out to rip you off some way or other. Don’t be impressed with charisma; look for character. Who preachers are is the main thing, not what they say. A genuine leader will never exploit your emotions or your pocketbook. These diseased trees with their bad apples are going to be chopped down and burned.” (Matthew 7:15 – The Message)
Nearly 20 times the Bible calls certain ones “false prophets.” In the New Testament the phrase is a translation of one word: pseudoprophets. In other words, fakers, con artists, and phonies. The word “false” makes it sound like the person is a prophet, but who sometimes makes false predictions.
But given the meaning of the Greek term and the context of its use in the Scripture, so-called false prophets are not real prophets at all. They’re posers. They’re frauds and fakes. True, they might get lucky once in a while and accidentally or with help from demons get something right. They may preach with great bravado and eloquence. They might have a huge twitter and YouTube following. They might have published a dozen books and get big crowds at their conferences, but they’re grifters and con artists.
This is nothing new. These fakers have deceived the unwary since the beginning. Moses predicted the phenomena, the biblical prophets called them out, and repeatedly Jesus warned of them: “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” (Matthew 7:15)
I said they deceive the “unwary,” otherwise known as careless, ignorant, and foolish people who possess little to no discernment. (If you feel I’m being overly harsh here, I invite you read 2 Peter 2 and/or Jude 1. Those brothers make me sound skittish.)
Now to the poser-prophet Julie Green, a YouTube self-declared “prophetess” (more like fortuneteller) whose wild and crazy predictions have a large following among undiscerning believers. Here is a small sampling of her so-called prophecies.
“From what the Lord was showing me, [Prince Charles] will actually have his mother murdered.”
Well, she was 96 when she died! Seems like knocking her off at that point might have been sort of moot!
“He (Charles) will never get that Crown he killed for.”
Actually, the moment Elizabeth died, he became King. His coronation is to take place on May 6, 2023. I guess maybe watch the news that night and see if Green somehow tapped into the divine on that one!
Green also claimed that 2022 would be a “Year of Vengeance,” where God’s Angel of Death will take out major figures in U.S. government including Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Shumer.
Hmmm. Both still alive. I wonder why the Angel of Death only targets Democrats!
Chief Justice John Roberts, Green said, would be tried for treason after being exposed for being in cahoots with sex criminals such as Jeffrey Epstein.
I wouldn’t hold your breath on this one. Believe it or not, it only gets weirder from here.
“Nancy Pelosi loves to drink the little children’s blood. By drinking this blood, they believe they will receive a longer life. Yes, a true witch she really is. She was part of sacrificing the children to Baal.”
I warned you about the weirdness!
Speaking of Pelosi, Green predicted: “Her days are coming to an end, and she will not last until the 2022 midterm elections. She will be visited by the angel of death for her crimes against my nation.”
Nope. Midterms came and went. She’s still breathing.
Joe Biden, says Green, is dead! “God said he is actually not alive anymore. There is somebody else playing his part.” The Biden actor is being directed via an earpiece, by, wait for it: Barack Obama, who has in effect created for himself a third term.
Oh, baby! Is this a new season of Doctor Who that I wasn’t aware of?
Speaking of Obama, “He is the Antichrist,” Green said. But no need to worry, because Donald J. Trump “is the real president, and he is coming back. And it is going to be by the hand of Almighty God.”
It’s always good to know who the Antichrist is these days!
Green has given dozens, maybe hundreds of similarly wacky “prophecies.”
She’s not the only faker in the prophecy ecosystem. A couple years ago, some others falsely predicted the results of the 2020 election. Some of which apologized, while others held to their guns and made bizarre excuses and ridiculous explanations for how their predictions were correct “in the heavenlies.” At that time, I posted this:
Lastly, as to motive for my rather direct approach to Green and other poser prophets, I appeal to what Peter wrote: “It is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people.” 2 Peter 2:15
“Watch out that no one deceives you.” Matthew 24:4
