Prophet Steve Fletcher is Wrong Again…

September 14, 2017 at 8:10 AM 4 comments

…but will his followers notice or care?

I’ve written several articles on the alleged prophet, Steve Fletcher. You can read them here if you’re interested: Link to past articles.

One thing Steve has going for him is his ability to pull the wool over the eyes of those who devour anything he writes, with gusto. It doesn’t matter that he is never correct about any of his predictions. When he’s wrong – all the time – he simply continues on with new “prophecies” that he claims are given to him directly by the Lord. Most seem to eat it up. The few who post a concern or question are generally ignored or attacked by others. How dare anyone speak against a “prophet” of God! is the essentially idea as far as they’re concerned.

Fletcher’s most recent prediction was that Jesus was going to return this past September 9, 2017. He was certain and even stated that “Jupiter was in Virgo’s birth canal.” I don’t know what that means but the idea of using horoscope verbiage to confirm something allegedly given to him by God is patently ridiculous.

You can read more about Steve’s most recent failed prophecy at Pulpit & Pen, in an article they wrote about it.

There are several things that are most troubling to me about people like Steve Fletcher. First, though he is a confirmed false prophet, he continues without so much as a hiccup after each failed prophecy, offering more of them. Second, all the people who follow him (and he has quite the following on social network), seem nonplussed by his constant and consistent errors. This tells me that the average church-goer and professing Christian today is woefully inept at discerning truth from error. Could it be they’re more interested in those things which appear far more ethereal (read: spiritual), than simply getting to know God and living the Christian life?

Third, it bothers me that this guy and too many others like him are out there stating that “God told me” or “God said” when in point of fact, God has said nothing of the kind to them! It makes God appear to either be non-existent or a liar, as far as the average, unsaved person is concerned. The reason God puts up with this? Two reasons only: His grace and the fact that in some way, in some measure, He will be glorified. I don’t know how, but maybe through all of Fletcher’s errors, people will begin to realize that living the Christian life is not so much being enamored with Christ’s return (though we should certainly look forward to it and be thankful for it), but it is in the daily, often mundane living that all Christians are involved in living. Maybe Steve Fletcher himself will come to the realization that he needs to fully repent of his grievous and continuing error. That would certainly bring God glory.

There’s another guy out there by the name of Scott Clark – oh, who am I kidding? He’s one of many who, in spite of Jesus’ specific wording that no one knows the day or hour of His return (Matthew 24:36; Mark 13:32), people have been offering their best “educated” guess since nearly the first century! It is absolutely unbelievable how many people simply set His words aside as if they mean nothing and continue the hoax of offering their guesses about when He’s going to return. All manner of excuses are given to allow them to continue propagating falsehoods in God’s Name.

On his website, Scott Clark makes a huge deal out of Revelation 12 and essentially says that the signs are unfolding right before our very eyes indicating a very soon return of our Lord. I don’t have the time to go into things here, but the way that Clark interprets this chapter is embarrassing really. Oh, and if you go to the bottom of the page, in the comments section, guess who shows up? Steve Fletcher, stating and restating the same thing he believes several times to anyone who will notice. People provide excuse after excuse for these “prophets” and continue to “learn” from them.

If you’d like to read what I’ve written about this passage of Scripture, you can purchase my book, End of the Ages, which is a commentary on Revelation 5 – 22 that I wrote for my doctoral thesis. It can be purchased here: Revelation: End of the Ages.

I’d also recommend anything by John Walvoord, Charles Ryrie, Arnold Fruchtenbaum, Thomas Constable and other conservative, biblical, well-balanced scholars who have fleshed out the true meaning of Revelation 12. It is also important to understand that Daniel, Ezekiel, and Revelation are all tied together. It is not good to simply take Revelation as a stand-alone, or for that matter, take one chapter out of Revelation as a stand-alone. The entirety of God’s Word was ultimately written by God and it represents His Word to us, in spite of the fact that He used some 40 different human authors over a period of 1,600 to 2,000 years to do so. Why did He do that? To prove His deity, omniscience, omnipresence, and omnipotence. Aren’t you glad He stooped to us in such a way? He most certainly didn’t have to.

The sad truth is that these men are either guided by the vanity of their own minds, by demonic entities, or both. When God speaks through a genuine prophet – as He has done so many times in the distant past – the words spoken always come true! It is that simple and that plain, but too many refuse to see it because they prefer to lean into the ethereal, regardless of the source.

What Christians need to be doing is living a life that is transparent, that exudes love for those who are unsaved, and are actually witnesses to God’s truth and saving grace. This is not done by constantly talking up when Jesus will return. It is done by our “conversation,” which includes not only what we say but how we live our lives. That is where the rubber meets the road and it is also the most difficult part of being a Christian. It’s easy to get caught up into areas that seem exciting, ethereal, and appear to touch the hem of God’s robe, isn’t it? Unfortunately, all these things do is pull us away from our number one priority of living the life.

Let’s be clear here. We are told to live in a way that we expect Jesus to return at any moment. Why are we to do that? For the simple reason that living in that way peels off the things we tend to cling to that have no eternal significance at all. It is so easy to be sidetracked as a Christian by the many baubles, bells, and whistles of the world Satan throws in our path. When the mind of the Christian is preoccupied with things that aren’t important, we tend to lose our spiritual focus and drive. We start to become molded to the world’s standards instead of God’s.

By keeping the truth that Christ’s return is “imminent” in front of us, we should find it easier live accordingly. But, some argue, that’s not what “imminent” means. I disagree, but if it makes you feel better, ask yourself when you’re going to die? Do you know the day, hour, and moment? Do you know how you’re going to die? I seriously doubt it and who would want to?

However, if you live in a way that helps you realize that this day – this hour – this moment – might be the last breath you take and then you’re in eternity, do you think that attitude would help you live a more committed life for Christ? If it doesn’t, then nothing will.

Truth is, none of us knows the day and time of our death. Moreover, none of us knows how we will die either. Not sure about you, but I consider that a good thing. God has determined these things for each individual. Are you living in a way that proves you are aware of that fact; not in fear, but in a sort of expectancy that one day, at a specific time, you will be with Christ if you are an authentic Christian?

Jesus warned that in the “latter days” there would be many false prophets and false Christs (Matthew 24). There are way too many to list here. I’ve run into folks who claim they are the two witnesses of Revelation 11. There are at least four people alive now who all claim to be Jesus. There are many individuals who constantly claim that God has spoken to them yet they have never been right. In spite of this, people keep hanging onto these individuals because it offers them the belief that through that individual, they have a direct line to God.

Folks, YOU have a direct line to God if you are an authentic Christian! But guess what, He is NOT going to tell you when He’s coming back! In the meantime, you are to live each day as if it is your last, exhibiting God’s grace to the lost so that they may see your “good works” and glorify your father in heaven.

THAT is the job of each and every Christian. It is NOT to be caught up in trying to figure out when Jesus is coming back!

Remember Harold Camping, founder of Family Radio? He made three separate predictions of when Jesus was going to return (he swore he did the math!), and they all failed. After strike three, Camping lost his voice and eventually died.

Don’t be like Harold Camping. Don’t follow after guys like him who claim to speak for God yet their predictions are valueless and FALSE. That makes Camping, Fletcher, and all others with failed prophecies FALSE PROPHETS. It’s as simple as that.

Could Paul’s words be anymore applicable to the situation that exists for too many today?

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions… – 2 Timothy 4:3 (ESV)

    You “knew from my first response a few days ago we would not see eye-to-eye”. Wow. Prophetic indeed. Probably not. In eternity. So sad. MARANATHA!

      I wasn’t being “prophetic” when I made my comment. Simply stating the obvious based on how you view things and how I view things. We are worlds apart. I disagreed with you from your first comment, Annabel.

      Yes, in eternity, we’ll see eye-to-eye and we’ll both understand exactly where we were BOTH wrong in this life.

      I think it is definitely time to agree to disagree. No further comments are needed. Thank you.

    Scott Clarke doesn’t “take one chapter out of Revelation as a stand-alone”. In fact he never has if you didn’t just rush hastily through his videos but really proved it along with the bible. Nor did he claim to be a “prophet” of God himself. Neither do the guys from ‘unsealed.org’ or ‘rev12daily’ nor pastor Mark Biltz, Adam Fink (Parable of the Vineyard), Steve Sewell (Heavenlysign2017) or Paul Dawson at YouTube (REVELATIONCHAPTER12. COM). None of them together with many others not even mentioned is led by a “the vanity of their own minds, demonic entities or both” and everybody of them knows the severe consequences of Jeremiah 23:9-40. Beware your tongue how you talk about true and sincere brethren in Christ Jesus as you will be held accountable before God Almighty soon.

      Hi Annabel,

      Thank you for your comments. I try to be as careful as I possibly can be, especially when naming names. I knew from your first response a few days ago, we would not see eye-to-eye. You have your views and I have mine. We will agree to disagree in the future.

      Like Steve Fletcher, Clark appears to use astrological signs to support his theories, which I believe is something Christians should never do.

      Moreover, Clark supports the heavily debunked “Blood Moons” theories. I have no faith in Haggee, Biltz, Cahn and others whose sole endeavor seems to be taking things out of context and/or making it up as they go.

      I’ve written quite a lot against the teachings of Jonathan Cahn whose prophesies came to absolutely nothing, though of course he left himself an out.

      Haggee teaches doctrinal error, especially where Jews are concerned, saying they don’t need salvation in Christ as Gentiles do because Jews are under a special dispensation (my paraphrase).

      These guys are great at gathering crowds of people around them who have itching ears and gobble up everything they teach. It’s sad.

      Here’s a link of someone else critiquing Clark if you don’t like what I have to say:

      https://timmchyde.com/scott-clarke-prophecy-video-theories-debunked/

      The sad truth is that these guys have an inordinate focus on the return of Christ. It has given them myopia. While we are commanded to look forward to that day, we are not to try to guess when it will occur.

      I stand by what I wrote. I do not believe Fletcher, Biltz, Haggee, Cahn, Clark or others like them have received any visions from God.

      I’m not questioning their salvation nor am I suggesting they are possessed. I question the means by which they allege receiving revelation from God. If they have NOT received visions from God, that leaves only two sources, which I mentioned in the article.

      Christians are not automatically guarded against being deceived. We are to test the spirits. If we don’t and simply accept something that sounds good or makes us feel it is truth we are opening ourselves up to delusion and falsehoods.

      Biltz has been thoroughly debunked by many, not to mention his own prophesies have not panned out – the greatest debunking of all. Cahn is in the same boat. Steve Fletcher has been 100% wrong over 50 times, yet he persists. These men are helped along by individuals like yourself who go to bat for them and continue to believe them even when their failures are so clear.

      I’m VERY mindful of the fact that I will stand before Christ in judgment but not for salvation. So will you…and those whom you avidly follow. I’m quite certain I will come up in short. None of us are perfect. Not me. Not you. Not those whom you praise.

      The difference between me and them is that I’m not going around saying, “God told/revealed to me what He is about to do.” That makes them FAR more responsible for their words.

      If they are actually NOT speaking for God but claiming “God said…”, He will only put up with it for so long.
