New Apostolic Reformation: Repayment

The cry of these self-appointed and self-modelled prophets, beloved by the New Apostolic Reformation, is that of God is in the business of repaying. Repaying what? Apparently God is in the business of repaying those who have lost out to Satan. These prophets believe that they and their followers have been spiritually maligned somehow and God is on the point of reimbursing them for their pains. In truth, these so-called prophets are trying to cover up for their previously failed atempts at prophesying on the premise that Satan has got in the way of its fulfilment. The Elijah List is a vehicle for these prophetic charlatans to make prophetic pronouncements. Consequently their followers become disgruntled and so these promises of repayment appear.

One such example of this is Hank Kunneman who says here on the Elijah List God says. "Yes, I have My business that I am taking care of and I'm attending to in this nation and the nations, but I have promised that not only shall I do what I've said I will do, but I'm going to make 2022 be about you. I will repay back, and I will cause the forces of darkness who've attacked My people unjustly - even at the hands of your government..." God says, "...I will release and ease the pressure, and I will remove the harshness, and I will bring an intensity of My hand of blessing that shall carry over, and they shall see in the earth that My hand is greatly upon My Church."

The problem is not a reimbursement for failed prophesies but the question of the validity of the prophets themselves. Why is God responsible for their failed prophecies? They, of course, believe that their prophecies are from God but if those prophecies fail then the fault lies with the prophecy itself and ultimately with the prophet who gave it. The Bible is quite unequivocal regarding failed prophecies. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. Matthew 24:11 This is exactly what is happening today? Or again Then the LORD said to me, "The prophets are prophesying falsehood in My name. I have neither sent them nor commanded them, nor spoken to them; they are prophesying to you a false vision, divination, futility, and the deception of their own minds." Jeremiah 14:14. But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in My name, a word which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die. Deuteronomy 18:20.

This is exceedingly strong stuff but in their believing (falsely) that they are called to be like the Old Testament prophets then they err and err big time. Of course, we are not told that we should stone these people to death as in the Old Testament, but in the New Testament speaking falsely in God's name in this manner will ultimately carry a death sentence instead of eternal life. Sometimes, reading the Bible can actually help: Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits. "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' Matthew 7:15-21.
