Chuck Pierce: Flooding in Rome

What planet does Chuck Pierce live on? His bio tells us that: Charles D. "Chuck" Pierce serves as President of Global Spheres, Inc. (GSI) in Corinth, Texas. This is an apostolic, prophetic ministry that is being used to gather and mobilize the worshipping Triumphant Reserve throughout the world. GSI facilitates other ministries as well, and participates in regional and national gatherings to develop new Kingdom paradigms.

One might expect that someone claiming to have an apostolic ministry would have some scars to show for it. The Apostle Paul said in his bio: I have worked much harder, been in prison more frequently, been flogged more severely, and been exposed to death again and again. Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. 2Corinthians 11 vv23-24. How many times has Chuck suffered? Yet he would claim to be at least an equal with Paul.

Chuck writes in the Elijah List and prophesies saying: Today, Heaven is coming into your atmosphere and you will be energized to accomplish what you couldn't accomplish earlier on this particular month! Does this even remotely sound like the Holy Spirit uttering precious life-giving words? It sounds more like a fortune-teller. The only word here which could connect these words to scripture is the word "heaven". Chuck Pierce is speaking words from his imagination. As a dominionist and leader of the New Apostolic Reformation, which should read "New Order of the Latter Rain" Chuck Pierce imagines, sorry, dreams that Christians will one day rule the world and then they will invite the Lord Jesus Christ, the one who is sustaining all things by his powerful word Hebrews 1 v3 to return to earth in order to rule.

Chuck's advice in this piece is: It is a time to get our alignment with our dreams and our destiny in order, so we can stand vertical in the season and the dispensations of the glory. For this glory is not like the previous glory - this glory demands an alignment of Heaven and earth so all that is prepared can be released and revealed. Funny though, it must be asked: Can one stand horizontal? These are not actually Chuck's words but the words of a Phillip Martin an associate of Chuck. Again, one must ask: Are these truly words from the Holy Spirit? Phillip here is actually redefining God's glory! Tested against scripture this is simply a imaginative garbage.

Apparently, Chuck prophesied back in May 2012 that: There will be an unusual flood that goes through Rome. When you see this flood know that I am cleansing the Church from its straying way. When Rome floods I will wash My people in a new way and they will rise up out of their legalistic shift that they had too many years ago. They will come into a new power as first. When the flood comes through Rome, Antiochs all over the earth will rise again. I have shaken the mindset of the last seasons. Greece is a picture of the shaking. But now Rome and its accumulation will begin to be cleansed. As Rome is cleansed you will see a healing sweep throughout the Catholic people. That wineskin that has captured generation after generation will no longer be able to hold its captives. You can read all of this here. The first question which this raises is: "Does the Lord need to demonstrate what he is about to do by using a flood or any other sign? If the Lord were on the point bringing Catholics out of their deception would he announce it? God's grace would extend to any and every Catholic, including the current Pope, but does Chuck understand what Catholicism is truly all about. They claim to be the Mother church and you are not saved unless you are within its fold. They claim that Jesus IS the wafer of communion and by eating it he indwells us. Scripture on the other hand says: After he had provided purification for sins , he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. Hebrews 1 v3b. So who is right? the Pope or the Bible. The blasphemies of the Roman Catholic church are immense and whilst many Catholics might come out of their church, it is extremely unlikely that the Pope will suddenly say; "We got it wrong and Martin Luther was right after all".

So where is all this leading? You guessed it! Rome had a flood this week and Chuck has published photographs of it on the Elijah List. Obviously he is pleased with the accuracy of the prophecy (who would not be?). However, that is only half of his prophecy: the flood is only the sign that the Lord is going to cleanse the Catholics. Now the danger can be perceived. In order for the prophecy to be completed either the Pope must signal his errors (admitting he is not infallible?) or Chuck will want the churches to embrace Catholics in some kind of ecumenical love-in. The latter will result not in multitudes of Catholics getting saved but in huge segments of the Protestant church being dragged into Popery. Any voices of dissent will be severely dealt with because they will be kicking against the pricks of Chuck's prophecy.

Thus this is the insidious result of Chuck's prophecy and since it was supposedly spoken in the name of the Spirit of God it must have the same weight as scripture, yet in truth it has no more weight than the utterances of Mystic Meg or any other fortune-teller. Chuck, his dominionist friends and sadly, his followers are living in a cloud cuckoo land of their own making, having cast themselves off on a metaphorical sea of unscriptural waves where no doubt they will eventually be shipwrecked and lost. The Apostle Paul on the other hand, in real life was shipwrecked three times.
