Pro-Trump Christian evangelical ‘prophets’ apologise for getting election result wrong

In the run up to the presidential elections, a number of evangelical Christian leaders had forecast a clear win for Donald Trump – and they are now having to apologise for “missing the prophecy” after Joe Biden was named president-elect.

Californian pastor Kris Vallotton apologised to Mr Biden directly on Instagram, stating that “you’re my president” similar to the way Mr Trump and Barack Obama were “his presidents”.  

“I want to sincerely apologise for missing the prophecy about Donald Trump. It doesn’t make me a false prophet. I prophesied he would become president four days after he declared his candidacy [in 2015]. And I prophesied Trump would not be impeached [and removed from office]. I’m very sorry to everyone who put their trust in me, there was a major, major mistake,” said Mr Vallotton.

He was not alone among church leaders in predicting a second term for Mr Trump, with the Republican enjoying strong support among evangelical Christians. 

Some are, like the president himself, still refusing to back down, and they instead urged their supporters to keep the faith.

Jeremiah Johnson, who is based in North Carolina, said he still predicts that Mr Trump will reclaim the presidency, and that unspecified corruption in voting will exposed. On Saturday, he told thousands of his followers that “God hates” the policies of Mr Biden.

“While we wait until January to determine our next US President, observe the stunning blindness and hypocrisy in the body of Christ… Christians who voted for the shedding of innocent blood, the Equality Act, and anti-Israel legislation (ALL things God HATES) are now picking up stones to persecute prophets who supposedly missed it,” wrote Mr Johnson in a post to his followers.

He claimed that “either a lying spirit has filled the mouths of numerous trusted prophetic voices in America or Donald J Trump really has won the presidency and we are witnessing a diabolical and evil plan unfold to steal the election,” while adding that “every legitimate prophet” he knows is still predicting Mr Trump’s victory by January 2021.

Another such leader, Televangelist Kenneth Copeland, laughed at the media for calling the election for Mr Biden on Saturday. “The media said Joe Biden is President …” said Mr Copeland, followed by a chorus of “hahahahaha …. Hahahahhah” that he was soon joined in by his followers.

  1. It seems clear to any true disciple of Jesus the Christ of the Holy Bible, that these ‘prophets’ hear other people’s voices and NOT His own.
    He says my people hear my voice, and others they do NOT hear.
    These fellows are archetypes of the Janis and Jambres of the Old Testament who led many Isrealites wrong before Jesus.
    Their perverse interpretation of scripture, which Jesus disavowed in every possible way, that God prefers genetic Jews over all other human races is their core belief. It is in fact Anti-Christ!
    Jesus’ core revelations include:
    1. God is no respecter of persons!
    2. The heart of the Samaritan being more calibrated to God than that of any other person (regardless of race) in that parable!
    Finally they have continued to excuse relentless mendacity and hate on that false interpretation and thereby ‘continue to crucify Christ to themselves’ over and over again these past four years!

  2. I think Christians, especially Christian leaders (Pastors, prophets, etc… etc..) need to use their platform to uplift and promote Jesus and not use their platform to promote or endorse a man. This goes for both democrats and republicans.

    The world and unbelievers are watching. Most unbelievers don’t want to have anything to do with Christianity because they think we are hypocrites. This election has caused so much division in the nation. We as a body of Christ didn’t make things any better by endorsing or promoting candidates. We fueled the fire. We missed out on opportunities to show the world who Christ really is. Instead of us endorsing and publicly praying for candidates, we should have been uniting as a body of Christ and publicly praying for the nation. We should keep our personal feelings about a candidate to ourselves and pray privately for the candidate we believe God wants in office.

    I pray for this nation. We need healing. I pray that we can keep politics off the pulpit. Because whoever you endorse, you are going to offend someone. So instead of us offending one another (which caused division) and focusing on our differences, I pray we can promote unity in this nation and stay focus on what we are really suppose and that is to uplift the name of Jesus and make disciples out of the nation.
