End Times Prophets are at It Again

According to self-proclaimed prophet, Mark Taylor, Donald Trump is God's chosen man for the next presidency.

According to self-proclaimed prophet, Mark Taylor, Donald Trump is God’s chosen man for the next presidency.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn is famous for books about what he calls “The Harbinger,” which consisted of 9 harbingers to be exact that were said to be final warnings for America. Another individual by the name of Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries is known for teaching that the “blood-red moons” have/had some major prophetic significance in these last days. The prophecies of these guys have come and gone, but both are said to be “reworking” their prophecies.

Harold Camping, an engineer-turned-radio-minister, taught that Jesus was physically coming to this earth…on several very specific occasions. Interestingly enough, on his third attempt (which also did not come to pass), Camping suffered a stroke and eventually died. I personally believe that this is one of those occasions when God chose to judge an individual for daring to speak “in His Name” and ultimately became a false prophet because of it. I’m not saying Camping was not saved or is in hell now. I’m simply saying that there are too many who are willing to claim that God spoke to them and they’re relaying the message when in point of fact, they may simply be imagining things or hearing the voices of demons and failing to “test the spirits” as we are told to do in 1 John 4:1-2. What is most troubling about all of these individuals and their so-called prophecies is the complete lack of discernment, not only from the individual “prophets” themselves but from those who follow them.

One of the latest individuals to come to the fore is a guy by the name of Mark Taylor, a retired firefighter. According to him, he says he was “given” a very specific prophecy in 2011 and apparently it has unfolded so that now he realizes that God has told him (definitively) that Donald Trump is God’s choice to bring America back from utter destruction. If you listen to the audio in the video below, Taylor references Secretariat, the triple-crown-winner as a metaphor for the Church and it’s now time for the Church (“Secretariat”) to shine.

The video is over an hour of Mr. Taylor being interviewed by Rick Wiles. As Wiles interviews Taylor, what I noticed is that not once did Taylor explain how he “tested” the spirits at all. Admittedly, I did not listen to the entire recording, but I would have thought that anyone who is going to come out and essentially claim that God told him something directly would have obeyed Scripture by testing the spirits.

There is no indication Taylor did that at all, but it appears he simply assumed that what was being revealed to him was of the Lord. End of story. There are many instances of Taylor saying “God told” him or “God showed” him without any possibility of Taylor being wrong. He simply assumes that God is speaking; not a demon, not the devil, not even his own imagination. It was God, period. The ramifications to this – like every other “prophet” who has marched across the horizon – is that if you do not believe what is being revealed, then you do not believe God. These people really need to watch what they say and how they say it!

What is even more astounding is the number of comments underneath the video at YouTube that support the video! Some even offer praise to God for choosing Donald Trump to bring this nation back from the point of destruction. Here is another link that provides more sound bites of Mr. Taylor alleging God’s work on behalf of Donald Trump.

It is amazing to me what people fail to learn. Throughout modern times, there have been people rising to the top of the heap with one claim of prophecy after another. Even though these prophecies too often fail to materialize, people continue to chase after what they hear from someone new. It tickles their ears because they believe that an end is in sight for the corruption that has become part and parcel in society today. Frankly, it’s completely daft, yet this has become the norm for way too many people. It’s simply a form of emotional virtue or Cultural Marxism that has made its way into Christendom. People make decisions based solely on how they feel about something. Forget absolute truth from Scripture. People today prefer to determine truth based on how it resonates within them.

For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear, (2 Timothy 4:3).

But why does this continue? Why do people hang on so firmly to the belief that America can or will be turned around, even putting their faith into someone like Donald Trump, who has provided no evidence that he’s even a Christian at all? It all boils down to a failure to understand God’s plan as revealed in Holy Writ.

Regarding the above video, one person writes: “Sounds like this man was groomed by God to be president.”

Another responds to that comment with, “That’s how it happens.

Yet another individual writes,”[A]bsolutely has given me a Ray of hope & I have been a firm supporter of Trump …. Blessings to your show & to Mark Taylor!!!” (sic)

Here’s another set of comments. “[L]et me note I have sent this off to my Pastors, and my church family so excited as we all are. Can’t say false hopes cause GOD doesn’t give false anything…

These people are not using any form of discernment at all. They are merely going by how the information from Taylor makes them feel. They believe that Trump is the guy who should be our next president – chosen by God – and if so, God will work in and through him to bring America back from destruction. That makes them feel excited so they need nothing further to prove anything. For them, it’s that simple and unfortunately, the more complex and convoluted the alleged prophecy (Secretariat is a metaphor for the Church), the better and therefore, the more believable.

If this is the scenario that is supposed to happen, then what about the Bible itself? What does the Bible teach us regarding the end times? I’ve written a number of books on the subject and plenty of articles here on the subject as well. From everything I can determine, things do not get better as they lead up to the return of Jesus. The Bible seems very clear to me that society will grow worse and worse until the entire planet experiences what is called the Tribulation/Great Tribulation (or the final “week” of the 70 weeks discussed in Daniel 9). The Bible’s description for this period of time is akin to hell on earth (cf. Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21, etc.).

Here’s a brief recent article about how Donald Trump did not condemn the anti-Semitic threats one reporter received after writing negatively about Trump’s wife. The reporter received numerous threats connecting what should happen to her with what happened to Jews under Hitler. “The Donald” refused to condemn the threats to the reporter. This is supposedly God’s man and yet he is unwilling to stand with Jews? Interesting.

Amillennialists and Postmillennialists tend to believe that as the Church works harder, spreading the gospel through evangelism, more people will become saved and can then become better informed and help/work to change society so that America becomes (once again) what is thought to be a Christian nation. Many believe America started out as such and was derailed by liberals and atheists (termed “progressives” today). They believe Christians are to wrest control away from these progressives and bring America back under the moral and spiritual code of Scripture.

I don’t find this anywhere in Scripture, however I fully realize how people can get to that point of belief. In order for Amillennialism and Postmillennialism to be true, portions of Scripture have to be allegorized, as opposed to simply understanding Scripture in its most basic, literal sense.

Allegorization is done because it fits the agenda of those who believe that if Christians work harder, evil will be pushed back to the point that Jesus will be able to return to this earth. Currently, He cannot do that because the Church – the vehicle through which He works – is impotent, unspiritual, fractured, and blind. However, if the Church would simply realize her full potential, she would be able to change America for Christ, enabling Him to return physically to this earth sooner than later.

Mark Taylor clearly believes what has been revealed to him is from God. If you were to ask him what chance there was that he was being deceived, he would respond unequivocally with “none!” Yet, he is not only adding to Scripture, but changing the meaning of it with so-called “new” revelation.

I was talking with a person who claimed to channel an archangel who was always in direct communication with God. I asked him how he knew the being was actually an archangel. He said because he believed the archangel told him the truth and that he couldn’t lie. That was his belief.

I asked him to do what John says to do in 1 John 4:1-2 – to test the spirits in that way by simply asking if Jesus had actually come “in the flesh.” It was rather simple and would provide him with proof. If the being refused to answer or even said, “No,” then the Bible says that being is a demon. The guy wouldn’t do it! He told me that beings in the spiritual realm had absolutely no reason to lie to human beings.

People will ultimately believe what they want to believe and oftentimes, Satan doesn’t have to work that hard to have his lies accepted as truth. Too many people want to believe what is false because it sounds so good. No one wants bad news at all and this is what we are being faced with. Rather than accepting it, knowing that God is still in the business of saving souls (not necessarily countries), Christians prefer to chase after things that offer some “light” in the darkness.

Evil is on the move and just because that’s happening, it does not mean that God is powerless or unable to complete His will unless the Church steps up. As I’ve stated numerous times before, God is allowing Satan near-free reign over this world so that Satan will have every opportunity to bring his promises of Isaiah 14 to fruition. Remember, his last promise was that he would become like the Most High (Isaiah 14:14). God is giving Satan the chance to make that happen, which is why we are moving toward the Tribulation, which is why Satan’s spiritual son (Antichrist) will rule this world in the final Gentile empire first revealed in Daniel 2, which is why Satan’s attempted public humiliation of God will end when Jesus returns physically and destroys Antichrist with but a word!

This is so clearly spelled out in Scripture that it is difficult to miss, yet people continue to miss it. Why? Because they don’t want to “lose” America. They don’t want to be persecuted. It’s coming, folks. Draw close to God. Be and remain in fellowship with Him so that you can be a willing participant in the Great Commission. It’s not about God saving nations. It’s about God saving souls and He has chosen to work in and through Christians to make that happen.

Our Relationship with Jesus is a Call to Fellowship Let’s Talk More About Mark Taylor Okay?

    This was a great interview with Mark Taylor who said it best… Donald Trump is chosen and anointed.

    A New York Times piece on Trump has backfired! The New York times interviewed Trump’s ex-girlfriend, Rowanne Brewer Lane, and misquoted and LIED about what she said in their article “Crossing the Line: How Donald Trump Behaved With Women in Private”.

    They are desperately grasping at straws for anything they can to annihilate Trump. They attempted to tear him to pieces in that article only to have the girl they misquoted get invited to Fox News May 16th, where she set the record straight, stating they lied about everything!

      Hi Jacqueline,

      Apparently, you haven’t read my articles. I do NOT support Mark Taylor, Mike Thompson, Lance Wallnau or anyone else who believes Donald Trump is God’s anointed. I don’t believe it for a moment. IF Trump is elected, it will because God has allowed it, not necessarily because Trump is God’s anointed.

      These “prophets” need to realize that they are speaking FOR God and with that comes tremendous responsibility. Donald Trump’s qualifications are suspect. He’s spent plenty of money supporting Hillary Clinton in the past. He has done and said things that are not gracious or pleasing to God. Yet, people believe that God has anointed this guy.

      Why? Because they wrongly believe that America is somehow connected to Israel. Jonathan Cahn was wrong. Mark Biltz was wrong. Others have been wrong and later this year, Mark Taylor, Mike Thompson, and Lance Wallnau will be proven wrong. That won’t make a difference for their followers though.

      Christians in America are in very sad shape.

        Apparently you assume I can’t read. Your article was read.

      • 4. modres  |  May 18, 2016 at 8:43 AM

        No, but since you obviously posted what I clearly disagreed with, either you DIDN’T read it or chose to ignore what I said as if your comments somehow negated mine.

        It’s fascinating how you inferred what I did not state or imply. I was not questioning whether or not you can read. Obviously, you can write and the fact that you highlighted an article you summarized proves that you can read. The problem is people who come here to post their comments without understanding what I – the owner of the site – believes to be the truth on various subjects.

        Please waste no more of time with this stupidity. Save it for the Dominionist/Christian Reconstructionist groups who will eat it up as I’m sure there are plenty of them. Mark Taylor is a fraud and false prophet. End of story. Thank you, Jacqueline.

        Donald Trump is NOT God’s “anointed” to be America’s “wrecking ball” or anything else.

    I will pray for you…God Bless.

      Thank you and I will pray that this spirit of deception that has hold of you will be rejected. Unfortunately, you are the one who needs to reject it. I am currently listening to and watching the video you recommended. I’m saddened. Who told him he is an apostle? Who told him he is a prophet? Who told him he speaks for God? His self-styled ministry is pure self-aggrandizement that caters to a very convoluted and polluted deception. It is tragic but we know that this type of thing is going to become normal during the end times.

      I’m really sorry that you believe guys like Thompson speak the truth. What will you say or do when Trump is not elected or when he IS elected but fails to turn this country back to God and ends up continuing Obama’s policies, who continued many of Bush’s, who continued many of Clinton’s?

      He that has an ear, let him hear…

    I too was very skeptical of Taylor’s prophetic word… so I did as Paul tells us to in 1st Thes 5 and test it myself with the Holy Spirit. I asked God to reveal His truth to me concerning this…The results? Let’s just say I spent the entire night tossing and turning last night that I don’t think I got a wink of sleep. The whole night I kept having an urgency to seek out more folks who are speaking this way. I did and lo and behold I immediately came across another preacher who essentially had the same prophetic word…deep within me it was confirmed… there is no question, it is confirmed. I know you and everyone here won’t believe me… but I know Trump has been chosen as Cyrus was chosen in Isaiah 45… to be the 45th President. Test it for yourself… report back. See this Preacher’s testimony…

    God Bless

      You’re right, I don’t believe that Trump is God’s man at all. You say it was confirmed “deep within you.” How does that prove anything, Tim? You are simply going by FEELING, not substance. You sought out others and you found a preacher who has the same word and that confirmed it to you? Where is your discernment? You spent the whole night tossing and turning? You say you have an urgency to seek out more folks who are speaking this way and “lo and behold” you did? How is that God speaking to you or confirming anything?

      With respect to Cyrus, Nebuchadnezzar or any other ruler during Old Testament times, the truth is that these individuals were part of God’s plan for the “times of the Gentiles” and their direct connection and/or control over Israel. Often these leaders were put in place by God to act as His arm of judgment AGAINST Israel for the way they misbehaved. Are you aware that had Israel consistently obeyed God in everything (including recognizing and honoring the Jubilee), there would have been no need for the “70 weeks” of Daniel 9? The entire “times of the Gentiles” is part of God’s punishment against Israel for their disobedience.

      Moreover, the fact that this world is moving toward the final phase of the fourth empire as mentioned in Daniel 2 – 9 simply tells me that America – unlike Israel – is not on God’s radar. The ENTIRE world will be ruled by the Antichrist. That includes America or whatever is left of it.

      People like you do NOT get it. God is NOT in the business of saving nations. He is in the business of saving SOULS. Yes, the entire area of Nineveh repented. Why? Because they had a king who demanded it, yet 50 years later, Nineveh was destroyed.

      If you will take the time to actually READ God’s Word, you will discover His plan through the ages from the Creation to the END of this age when Jesus physically returns to this earth and sets up His Millennial Kingdom. He will do that in response to Antichrist’s absolute defiance and Satan’s attempt to fulfill the promises he made in Isaiah 14.

      America is NOTHING in the scheme of things. Yes, it was founded upon biblical principles, but that does NOT mean this nation has been a “Christian” nation, in spite of David Barton’s lies to the contrary. America is not a monarchy. We are a Constitutional Republic.

      You actually think someone as godless as Donald Trump is going to bring America back and restore this nation to being a Christian nation? Come on, Tim, how can that even be possible? The times when Cyrus lived are so different to the times of today. I will check out that preacher’s testimony. You say you want me to report back, but you wouldn’t listen to any of my reasoning now or then. You have convinced yourself that Trump is going to the next president. If it does NOT happen, you and many others will state that it was because the Church failed, even though God was incapable of failing during Cyrus’ day.

      Take a look at the rulers that God had come and go in Daniel 2 and 7. He began with Nebuchadnezzar, whose father was leader of the Assyrians, whom God used as an arm of judgment against Israel. Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylonian Empire gave way to the Medo-Persian Empire, which included Cyrus. Though things were easier for Israel, they were still controlled by that empire. What was actually accomplished for Israel during these times? Did they ever obtain their independence again? They had freedoms, but they were still under Gentile rule.

      After the Medo-Persian Empire, Alexander the Great rose up. Historians tell us he was aggressive, bloodthirsty and quite possibly gay. Yet, God used him and his kingdom for a variety of purposes, not least of which was to establish Koine Greek throughout his empire, which is one of the languages Jesus spoke and which the New Testament was written.

      The Grecian Empire fell to the godless Romans and Daniel tells us during the end times (that’s now), the Revised Roman Empire will rise with the Antichrist (Satan’s spiritual son) at the helm.

      Postmillennialists and Amillennialists generally believe that as the Church works hard to spread the gospel, more people will be converted to Christianity and impact society for good. Once enough people are converted, Christianity will overtake and root out evil. This will allow Jesus to return to earth to set up His Kingdom.

      This is not what Scripture teaches. The Bible teaches that evil will gain a temporary victory over all the earth and Jesus will come back to OVERRULE and CONQUER it once and for all.

      I’m sorry Tim, but you are dreaming. There is nothing valid in Scripture you can point to as confirmation that your particular beliefs are truth. This is why you seek out other people who are saying what Mark Taylor is saying.

      The more I listen to Taylor’s teaching, the more demonic he sounds, I’m sorry to say. People like yourself still believe it is all about America. It’s not. It’s all about people of every race, color, and creed, who all need to hear the gospel. What are you doing about that? Are you losing sleep over the 150,000 people who died yesterday, many of them without Jesus?
