Prophecy, Inc.

I’ve written about false prophecy in the past, so this post is merely an illustration of the profit of prophecy.

I present to you the Master Prophet Bishop E. Bernard Jordan of Zoe Ministries in New York:

While the terms major and minor prophets are well known among bible readers, I can’t say that I know what a “master prophet” is.

For you folks here in the ATL, you’ll have a chance to visit Bernie for a personal prophecy. If you can’t make it to the Sheraton, perhaps you can bathe in some of Bernie’s special “prophecy soaps”– although they’ve been removed from the website. Can’t get the soap, try some books or other prophetic items, or just sow a seed (you knew that was coming, didn’t you?).

It’s interesting how Bernie touts himself as a “master prophet”, especially since his exposition of the Gospel seems…well, shaky.

Bernie was a guest on BET’s “Meet The Faith” show last year – specifically as a panelist on their “Black Homophobia & The Church” show.

As the resident “pastor”, Bernie was supposed to clearly exegete how God views the sin of homosexuality and the consequences of not repenting of it.

But, instead of defending the Gospel, Bernie had his hat handed to him by Sheryl Lee Ralph (an actress) and Keith Boykin (a gay activist).

Maybe he should stick to “prophecy”…for profit, because the bishopric may not be his calling (my emphasis in bold):

2 An overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,

3 not addicted to wine or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money.

4 He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity (1 Timothy 3:2-4)

    Sheryl Lee Ralph and Boykin wiped the floor with him…..I remember watching that and getting sooooooooooo furious….but it didnt suprise me….anyone who counts Deepak Chopra and Rev. Ike as mentors is more than suspect….Jedi Master Jordan only remembers the parts of the Bible that he can use in his hustle…..here is an older article about Bernard Jordan…

    It’s ridiculous djenk23. Beyond the obvious doctrinal problems with pimps like this, it’s even more evident when they’re asked to explain FUNDAMENTAL TENETS OF THE FAITH (e.g. this clown on homosexuality, Jakes on the Trinity, Osteen on salvation through Christ alone, etc.).

    If you want to be a cheesy see-through motivational speaker, then go for it. If you want to defend AND contend for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, then read the Word, understand it, believe it, AND BE PREPARED TO DEFEND IT!

    Man, I hope Bernie doesn’t open his front door when the Jehovah’s Witnesses come knocking…he just might join them in knocking on his neighbors doors!

    E. Bernaaaaaaaaaaaaard LOL. I remember this clown off of the Word Network with the “personal prophecy” scam. Scamster of the first degree that guy is.

    BTW did you know he hangs with the ol’ pimp that is Rev. Ike

    Thanks for the links ETPW – this guy is really despicable.

    You’re right Doug, anybody who hangs out with Rev. Ike (or counts him as a “spiritual mentor”) should be avoided AT ALL COST.

    Take a look at the links provided above to see the depth of his ignorance.

    Wonder if he’s still connected with the CI/Bill Hamon folks in Florida? Used to be in the 90’s.

    Hey All,

    Bernie is now officially “out of the psychic closet” LOL!

    He’s openly promoting astrology and “seed faith for your Solar Return”…

    I’m no longer a Christian thanks to this clown! Now, I’ll just pay my $10 for an authentic psychic reading – no “seed faith” or “tithes” needed.

      Kaity,

      I agree that Prophet Bernie is indeed a transparent clown, but I would hope that he alone is not the reason you don’t profess Christ anymore. The God of the bible does not sanction the mess that Bernie and others do in His name. God is rich in mercy, love, justice, and righteousness. I implore you to seek Him again – not a fake prophet who can tell you “your horoscope”, but seek Him through His Word and faithful men and women who earnestly, honestly, and humbly seek Him. Don’t give up on God because of this fool (and others like him) and their foolishness.
