Maurice Sklar Strikes the Mother Lode In False Prophecy

The wave of false prophets that has swarmed over the internet for the past decade or so has produced some very prolific practitioners, but probably none more so than Dr. Maurice Sklar.

His prophetic  messages pop up everywhere on Christian forums. It would seem at first glance that the Lord speaks to this man very often, on very many topics.  But on a closer look, we can see that its not always, or even mostly, or possibly even at all the Lord who is speaking to him.

Every once in a while, there comes along the pike a false prophecy that is so astounding in its depth of detail and degree of falsehood that it literally takes my breath away. One such prophecy that has made the rounds for the last few years on many forums and websites is the spectacular “Preparation of the Bride” prophecy issued November 24th, 2005, by none other than Dr. Sklar.

Dr. Sklar is an accomplised musician. To get an idea of Dr. Sklar’s prophetic ministry, it is helpful to read a list of crusades and meetings he has ministered at, either musically or otherwise participating.  Among the names that jump out are:

Kenneth Hagin, Jr., Kenneth Copeland, Che Ahn, Benny Hinn, Rod Parsley,…. you get the idea.  A roll call of some of the most apostate of the current apostasy in the church today.

You might remember Che Ahn as the one who made the truly memorable statement to Todd Bentley back in 2008,  during the height of the Lakeland false revival in Florida that year, “I must decrease that you might increase.” Need we say anymore about someone who would quote John the Baptist’s reference to Christ, in referring to Todd Bentley?

Benny Hinn needs no introduction. His truly heretical antics have made a mockery of the faith for decades. Rod Parsley is the one who last year asked his followers to send in one million dollars in donations to “ward off satanic attacks.” Kenneth Copeland is a false teacher who for decades has been using the “word of faith” and “name it and claim it” false prosperity gospel to grow personally rich.

What are some of the “prophetic words” Dr. Sklar has issued over the years? This whopper of a failed prophetic word that we will focus on, issued in 2005, stands out as one of the most fantastic failures of any prophecy I have ever seen, and it will be revealing to dissect this message to learn from it.

Details of the 2005 “Preparation of the Bride” prophecy

Since it is so long, I will take cut it down into pieces and snippets, and from that a big picture will eventually emerge. Here we go, into a wonderland of prophetic mystery, all incredibly ascribed to be the words of the Lord God Almighty Himself:

“New York City will receive 3 major judgments before the end of 2008. Each one will be more devastating than the last. One will shake the entire financial world and cripple the once invincible financial power of America. Millions will lose everything in a moment. It will make the crash of the stock market in 1929 look like a little thing in comparison. America will no longer be the financial leader of the world. Another judgment will destroy a major stadium during a sports event. Yet another explosion will destroy nearly an entire Borough of New York. But for the sake of the Jewish people in New York, I will supernaturally spare them. After this, I will cause the largest aliyah (return) of My people (the Jewish people) from New York (and other regions throughout the developed world to Israel) in all of history. But only after the entire financial system that they are dependant on collapses will they all return to the land that I have promised them.”

Is it just me, or are other people of the Christian faith just as shocked as I am that someone could put these words in the Lord’s mouth, and be totally unrepentant about it afterward?

Enough people repented, so the Lord changed his mind!

This disclaimer is added on somewhere in the middle of the lengthy prophetic word:

This is but a fraction of what is soon to come IF there is not repentance and turning back to Me.

This is the new “out” for the false prophet that is so popular these days. When what the Lord supposedly tells them fails completely to come to pass, it was because of repentance on the part of the people. Did anyone notice a great wave of repentance that swept over New York City between 2005 and 2008?

What Biblical reference point do we have to get an idea of how much repentance is required for God to withhold His hand of judgment? When we look at the story of Jonah and his prophetic warning to the city of Nineveh, we see that every single person in the city, right down to the cattle in the fields, wore sackcloth and ashes.

When God issues a prophecy with conditions attached, it is clearly stated within the prophecy itself. God doesn’t leave us guessing.  The Nineveh warning was issued by God in a clearly conditional manner, with the condition being stated by God Himself. When you see a prophet tack on  a disclaimer, or allow a disclaimer to be tacked on, to his prophecy that “it may not occur if enough people repent”, this is a red flag we should be aware of.

Lets look further into it. Earlier in this same 2005 prophecy, there is this to say about the year 2007:

 There shall be 5 terrorist attacks that will hit America in ever increasing destruction upon the major cities. Before the end of 2007, a nuclear “dirty bomb” will blow up in a major city in the south of America.

The false prophecies continue:

There will follow two more judgments one in a major city of Europe and one in the Arab nations in the middle east before the end of this year.  (2005)

Followed by:

Tokyo, Japan. Hong Kong, China. Johannesburg, South Africa. Calcutta, India. Sidney, Australia. Chicago, Illinois. Los Angeles, California. Paris, France and many other cities will experience major catastrophies in the next five years. (Editor’s note: meaning: by 2010). Millions upon millions will perish.

It takes one’s breath away to ponder how anyone with any fear of the Lord at all, even at the most basic level, could still be issuing prophetic words today, after such a colossal failure. Its seems as if he doesn’t even break stride, failure after failure, not even considering the consequences of dishonoring the word of the Lord in this manner. We have been clearly warned in scripture against doing this.

The prophetic words keep coming, all of this indicated to occur within the 2005 to 2009 time frame:

I will shake California in a warning, and then there shall finally come the earthquake that I have mercifully withheld for so many years. Millions shall perish in the ensuing floods and the west coast of America shall be removed and fall into the ocean.

Note: Dr. Sklar continues to this day to base his ministry in Victorville, California, the same West Coast area God supposedly told him would fall into the ocean.

And this:

Boston shall experience a major attack upon a great school that once preached My gospel in ages past but has left the faith of their fathers never to return again. It will never be rebuilt again.

And still more rings out:

The aids epidemic will devastate the population in Africa to half of its’ present size in the next 4 years.

Wait a minute here. African population cut in half by 2009?

And this:

North Korea will launch a sudden nuclear attack and then be completely destroyed. Only the prayers of South Korea can stop it.

Note: The North Korea nuclear attack didn’t occur. So in order to support this prophecy the theory that South Korea repented sufficiently needs to be quickly called onto the playing field to plug this leak in the prophecy.

The “Taking Billy Graham home”  Story Line

But for me, the real sucker punch in this whole prophecy was the assertion that God was revealing to the seer that He was going “to take Billy Graham and Oral Roberts home.”  Well, lets see, Oral Roberts did die four years after the prophecy, at the age of 91. Can we call this a prophecy that someone 87 would die within 4 years?

And about Billy Graham. Lets have a closer look at what Dr. Sklar has been passing on to us, supposedly from God, about Rev. Graham’s fate, in the time since this 2005 word. This is where the tale takes a definite turn for the worse, if that is even possible. In my research, I began to see that Dr. Sklar has been prophetically declaring the imminent passing of Reverand Graham for many, many years.

In recent times, Dr. Sklar has claimed God told him he is “taking Billy Graham home” on the following occasions, with the title and date of the prophetic word in bold:

November 24, 2005 “Preparation of the Bride” as noted above.

June 4, 2009 The Coming Threats To the United States of America

July 13, 2010  The Restrainer

December 1, 2011 “The Lord Says

“The Lord Says” prophecy was released a day after Billy Graham was admitted to hospital in serious condition with pneumonia. Here the Lord is clearly quoted as telling Dr. Sklar that Rev. Graham’s passing will occur SOON.

August 16, 2012  The Red Horse of War

The Red Horse of War prophecy was released 3 days after Billy Graham was admitted to hospital with bronchitis.

So you see, basically every year, Dr. Sklar issues a prophetic word saying God told him Billy Graham will pass away, or at least to “watch” for his passing. In the case of two of these prophetic utterances, Reverend Graham had been admitted to hospital just before the issuance of the prophecy.

But when I looked a little further into this prophecy, I found this “death of Oral Roberts and Billy Graham” prophecy was not new. It actually originated from the mouth of none other than Benny Hinn. In an old broadcast recently reshown on TBN, Hinn stated:

“The Lord said to me in ’89…sorry, yeah, ’89. He said when Oral Roberts and Billy Graham go home will be the key—it will be the sign—of the beginning of the greatest revival on earth. Oral is home. Billy is about to go home. And when he does, I am telling the whole church, get ready.”

So when one checks further back to what he actually said in 1989, it was the following, in a string of New Years Eve prophecies Benny Hinn recorded at his Florida church, Orlando Christian Center:

The Lord also says that, Two of his great giants will die in the mid-90’s. They’ve held the torch of revival for the last forty years, these two. One of them has been to this church, and the other has not. One will die suddenly while asleep. And the other will die of sickness. And as both giants die, which will be in the mid-90’s, I will shake this world with a last revival. Their death will be the closing pages of this move.

I think a few things are clear here:

(1) God knows exactly when Billy Graham will pass from his mortal body.

(2) While God works in mysterious ways, He doesn’t work in confusing or incongruous ways. For God to reveal to Dr. Sklar, or Benny Hinn, anything about the mortal passing of Rev. Graham would be surprising enough, but to be confusing about the timing seems even more out of character for the Almighty God we know about through His Word.

(3) Neither Dr. Sklar, nor Benny Hinn years before him, were actually receiving heavenly bulletins about the medical condition of Rev.Graham. Billy Graham continues to live. God is the only one who knows the timing of his, or anyone else’s, passing.

How can any thinking, scripturally knowledgeable, and God fearing Christian come to any other conclusion than that this is an abomination to claim to fellow Christians that God speaks to them in this manner?

Other Prophetic Visions From Dr. Sklar

You might think, well, the prophet was just having a bad day when he issued this message. I don’t think the Lord was having a hard time getting through to him, or was unclear. So perhaps his prophetic radar in some way wasn’t functioning that day. Thus to be fair, lets take a look at some of the other teachings this person has issued over the years. Some examples are the following:

The Vision of Heaven (Aug. 4th, 2010)

On Wednesday, August 4th, 2010, at about 10:30 AM, an angel came into my bedroom, I had just awakened. He said to me, “I am sent from the Lord to bring you to heaven. You must now come with me. Take my hand.” So I did. Suddenly, I was in the spirit realm. We ascended out through the ceiling of my home and shot up into the air like a rocket.

What follows is a vividly detailed description of heaven itself.

Soon I saw a large white tent “city” of sorts………It had twelve tent pavilions; each with a white cone that went up at
least ten stories high. On top of each “cone” was a flag that the
angel said was a flag for each of the twelve tribes of Israel……….As we entered into the tent of Benjamin, I saw many tables that were at least a hundred feet long. Each was lavishly set with gold cutlery, crystal goblets and plates that looked like they were made out of mother-of-pearl.

He then goes on to describe entering a heavenly concert hall:

The angel quietly spoke in my ear. This is a concert in your honor.
The composer, Gustav Mahler is here in heaven. He has composed a symphony for you. Then the Lord came out on stage and conducted! ……Then, when the music started, I went into a realm of ecstasy that I cannot describe in words…… But the music was like a living movie or a vision…… I listened and I saw many good things that I had done to love people on earth.

There is some biblical precedent for people getting glimpses of heaven. Elijah and Enoch were both taken up to heaven directly without tasting death. But they never returned to tell anyone what it was like. Lazarus never spoke much later on about what he had seen in the four days before he was resurrected.

The detail of Dr. Sklar’s visit to heaven is stunning in comparison with the scarce information we get from Scripture of what heaven is like. John the Apostle was the only one in the Bible who provided anything close to the kind of detail about heaven provided by Dr. Sklar, and that detail comes through visions related in the book of Revelation.  It seems that Dr. Sklar has the advantage over John, in that his imagery comes from an actual visitation, not a dream or vision.

(…….at about 10:30 AM, an angel came into my bedroom, I had just awakened.)

Fishing With William Branham

A remarkable vision Dr. Sklar says he was given to release to us is this tale of a fishing trip where he encountered the deceased William Branham. Branham appeared beside him in a small fishing boat. He asked Maurice to release 25 of his “lost sermons” that contained an important message for the present times. This vision really has to be read to do it justice.

William Branham was a man who lived about half a century ago, who was kind of a forerunner for numerous false doctrines that took firm grip on the church in later years. His teaching was a bizarre combination of Word Faith, Manifest Sons of God, and Serpent Seed, all rolled into one. He denied basic Christian doctrine such as the Trinity.

Branham explained, “…not one place in the Bible is trinity ever mentioned…It’s Catholic error and you Protestants bow to it” (Conduct, Order, Doctrine, Q and A, p. 182).

See for a complete discussion of the errors of William Branham.

Dr. Sklar’s Defense of the failed “Preparation of the Bride” Prophecy

 Years later, Dr. Sklar issued the following statement concerning the complete and abject failure of the 2005 prophecy:

Well, much to my surprise, it went all around the world. Many thousands of intercessors began to pray, and I am now convinced that God held these calamities back in His mercy so that we would have more time to get the Gospel out to the nations (especially here in America!).

Here he invokes the “repentance clause” we came across above. These internet prophets convince us it wasn’t their failure, it was God changing His mind. According to this logic, there are no failed prophecies, just a whole lot of cases where God withholds the judgment spoken of. And even more amazingly, Christians who should be exercising more discernment just accept it.  

Then he pauses, to add that he “could have just missed it”, only to quickly revert back to :

I am now more and more convinced that I really DID have a genuine visitation from the Holy Spirit and God’s mercy did indeed intervene and held these calamities back, praise His Holy Name

Is he talking about a message from God here or is this a debate he is having in his own mind about whether it was God speaking? If you are not crystal clear on whether it is God speaking or not, you are not getting revelation from God. The word of God is never ambiguous. The Lord will never experience problems making things clear to us. Obviously, prophecy was never intended to be a “hit or miss”proposition. 

This is so typical of the modern day internet prophets. They think its OK if they “win a few, lose a few.” Even if they “win” none, and “lose” them all, its all good to them. It shows you how they bring a “game” mentality to something as deadly serious as revelation from the Lord Almighty. It all sells, it all attracts popularity and attention to their ministries, which is what its all about for them.

Evaluation of the 2005 “Preparation of the Bride” prophecy.

In the final analysis, for the 2005 “Preparation of the Bride” prophecy of Maurice Sklar to be considered seriously as a genuine word from the Lord, so much of our Biblical understanding of the Lord and His ways would have to be suspended or done away with altogether. It is impossible to draw any other conclusion  than that the words are from a human mind, and represented as words from God.

Maurice Sklar sees nothing wrong in piggybacking on a prophecy by Benny Hinn which has failed for 23 consecutive years, and hardwiring it into a mishmash of failed utterances in 2005, only to see it fail for another 7 straight years. He pridefully puts the name of God on all this, and without even a moment’s hesitation, continues to issue prophetic utterances today.

This is actually a very sad story of a man, who in every other way appears to be a very decent, likable, and well-meaning individual. He has for some unknown reason decided to elevate himself to an office of spokesman for God without God’s calling to do so. He is forsaking all of the numerous biblical warnings against doing this, as if  he believes he has received some special permission to bypass God’s written instructions. What is the result? The false glorification and uplifting of his own ego in terms of his person, his ministry, and his career, through counterfeiting the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Could the Bible be any clearer about how seriously this grieves the Lord?

And what harm does this do when people falsely speak for God? The New Testament, as well as the Old Testament, speak clearly about the danger of false prophecy. When people in the church become focused on what a false prophet is claiming God said, they are diverted from the real truth contained in the Bible.

I recall last year when many of the false prophets of the internet spun tales about how comet Elenin was going to be a spectacular, monumental event with great significance for all Christians. Many thousands of believers were totally enraptured for months, caught up in discussions, forum posts, tweets, and blogs with daily updates of the progress of this comet. How much could have been done to further the commission of spreading the Gospel if the same number of man-hours of effort had instead gone into evangelization and bringing Christ to the lost, or simply soaking in the glory of God’s word?

All these internet seers, watchmen, prophets, or whatever they insist on being called, are charming, and tell an interesting tale. They are personable, and know how to keep their audiences interested. But whatever takes our focus off of Christ and puts it onto the things of the world and the things of men, is of the darkness. Remember that scripture tells us that the spirit of darkness comes dressed as an angel of light. It is our job as ambassadors of Christ to have the discernment to know when Satan is using someone to deceive us and take us away from the light of the world that is Jesus Christ.

The word of God Almighty is the most precious thing imaginable. It is worth more than all our gold and every material thing. We in the body of Christ should not allow it to be trampled on and belittled. We wouldn’t allow anyone to edit or change our Bible. Why should this kind of brazen misrepresentation of God’s revelation to us be excused?

All blessings in Christ,

104 Responses to Maurice Sklar Strikes the Mother Lode In False Prophecy

  1. donna says:

    Well, there are many prophetic people all over the world who are hearing the Lord speak to them. Do you want to know why all these things prophesied are not coming to pass? Yes, it is because of the prayers of the saints. The Father is holding off judgment for a time to bring more people to Him. Yes, the Lord spoke that to me as I do hear His Voice. We are still in the Church Age, this has not ended. We are to look like New Testament Christians. Tongues, laying on of hands for deliverance and healing are still prevalent and are gifts today as well as dreams and visions. The Lord tells us the people who do not believe that His Holy Spirit is alive and well and manifesting today are lukewarm because they have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof. The Lord tells me that if the people kick the Holy Spirit out of His churches then they might as well kick Him out as well. Christians are not pursuing God daily in Bible study and prayer and not putting down the ways of the world as they should this is also lukewarm. We are in the END TIMES, homosexuality is rampant, there are wars everywhere, countries are being taken over by radical extremists who want to kill Christians, our country is in dire straights and everything is in place for martial law to come in (yes the Lord spoke that to me), we have the capability for the mark of the beast to be used (the Lord spoke that to me-people who take this will be sent to hell-there is no turning back)–look up Class 2 Implantable device/obama care. We have camps already built in the US to house the Christians when they refuse this implantable device what the Lord calls the mark of the beast. Look up Rev. 13:6. Google FEMA camps and see what you find. The people are being deceived, our country is being taken over as we sleep. Yes, the Christians are asleep, they are lukewarm and they are not pursuing God as they should. I have done a lot of street evangelism and I have learned that when a pastor or minister identifies himself as such and they tell me they don’t need a bible track the next question I ask is, “What are you reading in your bible”? Six out of the last seven times this paid minister of a church could not tell me in the next few sentences what book of the bible he was reading out of for personal bible study. The Lord does not want our religion or our works-He wants us to pursue Him to know Him first. Kids and adults are more into the internet and i-pods then they are about pursuing things of God. Do you know that one of the main problems of young and older men today is an addiction to pornography? My ministry partner and I have found this out because we are involved in an e-church and many men come to us for prayer. Many men in the ministry today tell us they have been into porn. How many people do you see wearing shirts with skulls and crossbones? T-shirts now have pentagrams on them-this is satan’s mark. How many famous people do you see holding their hands up with a thumb and first finger making a circle and the other three fingers upright? This is the sign for 666. If the index and small fingers are held up this is the horn of satan-watch for how many you see in media make these signs. The Monster energy drink logo is ‘unleash the beast’ and has three green icons on the front–these are Hebrew for the number 666. Madonna did a black mass ritual at Superbowl in Indianapolis, Katy Perry did an opening number at the Grammy’s with a witches broom stripper pole-this is demonic. People who were the kids’ role models five years ago are now into porn-Miley Cyrus and drugs-Zach Efron. Suicides are up funeral homes will tell you. Our country is trillions of dollars in debt and we owe a communist country-China. Fukushima is pouring out radiation daily and the Pacific ocean is polluted with it as well and the US is getting it. Look up Washington State birth defects-google this-the medical and public officials do not know why alarming rates of birth defects are happening-how about Fukushima? We are in a boatload of trouble and the only way off this planet safely is by pursuing the Lord with everything we have got. He is coming back for the rapture whether people believe it or not-He tells us it is just like in the days of Noah-very few people got on the ark, just like in the days of Abraham and Lot-very few people were saved from Sodom and Gomorrah, and very few people believed He was God when He walked on the earth so very few people will be raptured off the planet because people don’t want to believe we are in the end times-BUT THEY BETTER! How about all of us using all of our energies to pursue God and other people for Him, using all we have for bringing people to the Lord. This work has eternal value-we need to stop the back and forth trying to discredit prophetic people. Here are the signs of the times we are in: 2 Tim. 3: 1-5 This know, also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away… Those of you who have read this message, have you read and feasted on your bible today and prayed and spoken to the Lord throughout the day? I challenge anyone who is not feasting on the Word (not just snacking) and pursuing God wholeheartedly in prayer to do so starting right now. Pray that the Lord will fill you with His Holy Spirit-completely from the top of your head to the bottom of your toes, pray that He will place you in the center of His will and that you will be ready for Him with clean garments when you meet Him face to face. Then pray more, read the bible more and fast from something meaningful and see what happens in your life-the Lord may show up in a big way. I challenge you, JD, to print this in its entirety. God bless you with Truth, Peace and Light that only our Lord can give, Amen.

  2. Thank you for taking the time to give a well-reasoned essay on why you believe that the apostolic gifts are still operative today. I can sense you are a very sincere seeker of God’s truth.

    There is nothing I can say that will change your mind about what the Holy Spirit does today. I believe that scripture clearly lays out what this function is: to bring life to souls who are dead in their transgressions and unable to do anything toward their salvation, in the same way a dead person cannot rise up. This regenerating power of the spirit is real, because I have experienced it.

    I was completely dead in my sins, reading New Age books by people like Deepak Chopra, and I basically believed in philosophies like Buddhism. One day the Spirit descended and opened my eyes to the wonderful truth of the Lord Jesus Christ and his atonement for all my transgressions. I have never looked back for an instant. Once your eyes are opened, you have eternal life and all the promises of the Bible become realities.

    There is simply no way I could accept anyone telling me that the REAL POWER of the Holy Spirit is in telling people when and where the next major earthquake will take place. I just don’t believe it, and I think it devalues shamefully the true work of the Spirit in our lives.

    We are told not to worry about what can kill our bodies, but to worry about who can kill the soul. I couldn’t care less about some person’s dream about a pending earthquake. This goes double for how important I would rank a dream from someone who has a history of literally dozens and dozens of false dreams claimed to be from God. Honestly, after what the Holy Spirit has done for me, I would be very ashamed to even ask the Spirit to tell me of future non-important events on the physical plane. I trust fully that Scripture is God’s full and complete revelation for all time, until Jesus comes again. I feel truly sorry for those who have convinced themselves that the Bible is insufficient for us today, and we need to look elsewhere.

    The excuse all false prophets give when their prophecies fail is that enough people prayed, and God stayed his judgment on the land. That is not the Biblical teaching on whether God stays his judgment. It is REPENTENCE which, in at least one case in the Bible, Nineveh, stayed God’s hand of judgment. Are you willing to give false prophets endless free passes to lie in God’s name because they simply play the “prayer card?”

    So I hold Maurice Sklar, and every other false prophet in the land, personally accountable for all their terrible falsehoods. Just read any of his past prophecies and tell me exactly where and when the United States of America as a nation REPENTED in the manner of Nineveh, where every single person wore sackcloth and ashes and truly repented and cried out to the Lord for mercy.

    God is a God of order and not of confusion. Why would he keep giving detailed prophetic information to Maurice Sklar, knowing full well none of it would ever come to pass? You are disrespecting the Lord to claim he acts in such a helter-skelter manner, constantly changing his mind.

    It is not the work of the Holy Spirit I reject, it is the horrible ways in which the Spirit is depicted by false prophets. I will write my warnings against these workers of iniquity until my last breath.

  3. donna says:

    JD, I mostly get prophetic Words that are personal for encouragement or to bring people back to the Lord. JD, I have prayed over you and the responders on your site and asked the Lord for Words for you. Lord, do you have any Words for JD and the responders on this site? Yes, daughter, I have Words for JD and the others. JD, this is your Lord speaking, Yahushua Ha Mashiach, Amen, Amen, Amen. JD, come to Me. Come to Me in the mornings and throughout the days. The days are long and dark and evil. The enemy wants to lead My children astray. He wants to rip them from My arms like a woman rips an unwanted aborted baby from her womb. The enemy wants to kill, steal and destroy. Come to Me in the secret place. Pursue Me as your One and Only Hope for I am your Only Hope. I came and died a horrible death so that you might live once and for all with Me in eternity. I am your Father and I love you so. I love you so much that I died for you and you alone so that you could be with Me for eternity. Come to Me, put down your heavy burdens. I will spin you around like a child and I will laugh and play with you. We will run through fields in heaven and toss a football and play and have a good time. There are many animals in heaven. They are waiting for My children on this earth. The animals speak and talk and are there for your enjoyment and pleasure. Put down this heavy burden. Put down this personal vendetta against My anointed, My prophetic. Do not get involved with something you know so little about. If I could create a newborn baby today ask yourself if I could then speak to that newborn baby? Which is the greater miracle to you? Is creating a newborn a greater or lesser miracle than speaking to that same newborn baby, My creation? I did not create My children to harass and point out difficulties and differences in each other. No one needs to police My prophetic. Your calling is greater than that, JD. You have a high anointing on your life and your are majoring in the negative when I have created you to be in the black, the positive. Put down this vendetta and pursue Me with this kind of fervor. I am a God that will not disappoint. I will make you rest easy and be positive and love life and love each other. Just put down this so called ministry you have against My prophetic and I will bring you to greater heights and greater blessings. Amen Amen Amen. Amen.

  4. “Put down this personal vendetta against My anointed, My prophetic”

    Seriously? You think a person with the true “anointing” of the Holy Spirit would say all this trash about explosions in major cities that God “told him” would happen many years ago but which never occurred? You have a bizarre view of what Holy Spirit anointing is. What a low view of God and the Trinity you have if you honestly think these lies of Maurice Sklar are from the Lord.

    “I did not create My children to harass and point out difficulties and differences in each other. No one needs to police My prophetic.”

    Really? So now its harassment to point out the false prophets which Jesus himself TOLD US WOULD ABOUND in the endtimes? The warning of Jesus Christ himself is something you care to disregard? In fact Jesus spoke a great deal about false prophets and the danger they would bring, “to deceive, if possible, even the elect”. Ignore this at your own peril, but now your language toward me is becoming not only condescending, but rude and petty.

    “Do not get involved with something you know so little about”

    Really? You claim my ignorance, and yet you claim, just for an example:

    “If I could create a newborn baby today ask yourself if I could then speak to that newborn baby? Which is the greater miracle to you? Is creating a newborn a greater or lesser miracle than speaking to that same newborn baby”

    You demonstrate by this that you don’t even know the true nature of what a miracle is. A child being born, while it may be a wondrous event, does not fall into the category of a miracle. Nor does planting a seed and seeing it grow into a plant or tree qualify as a miracle. Miracles are events completely outside of the natural order of things. Please educate yourself before deigning to educate me.

    By the way, if you or anyone you know has the Holy Spirit gift of “healing”, please contact me right away. We have a grandchild with a serious illness, and I think it would be quite selfish of you to not use your gifting to heal my grandchild.

    You have already claimed the gift of seeing the future. Please, don’t be shy. Tell us all, right here, right now, what will take place in the U.S. in the next three months.

    Wake up from your deep slumber, Donna. There is a real world out there that needs to hear the Gospel. Put down the wicked ways of those who would counterfeit powers given only to the Apostles. The names of the 12 Apostles will be written on the foundation stones of the walls of New Jerusalem. (REV.21:14) Your name, Donna, will not be written there, nor do you posess any of the gifts God gave solely to the Apostles.

    People like you reaffirm what a great need there is for discernment in the church today. May God someday open your eyes. Perhaps if you can one day put aside this childish yearning for physical powers on the physical plane, you can win many souls for the Lord.

  5. Yet another pack of lies dressed up in fine linen from a man who clearly has ZERO fear of the Lord. Another monstrous series of fabrications, with the name of our Lord profanely tacked on to it.

    We know three things right away will DEFINITELY arise from this new “prophetic revelation”:

    (1) None of this will occur.

    (2) Maurice Sklar next year will once again claim the events were stayed by the hand of God because enough people prayed, and God was moved to withhold his judgment.

    (3) Hundreds if not thousands of Christians lacking basic discernment skills will nonetheless laud Sklar and praise him as a great prophet of God, with Maurice lifting his ministry higher and higher in self-exhaltation, while the Lord is demeaned as someone who doesn’t seem to be able to make up his mind on any matter or make any revelations that actually happen.

    Shame on you Maurice Sklar.

    All blessings in Christ,
    JD Ellis

    Dear Lord, do you have any Word that you want me to give JD regarding this response?
    Daughter I have words for JD. JD, this is your Lord speaking. My daughter has completed her assignment. She will not be communicating with you anymore. If you do not put down this vicious tirade you have against My prophetic then the next person you will have to answer to for this will be your God. Your response for the prophetic Words that were given yesterday are pointed to Me, and My Father and the Holy Spirit. Get right with Me before it is too late. Amen.
    (JD this is donna- do not respond to this email to me as I am obedient and will not be communicating any longer regarding this email and have discontinued my request to receive communications.-Please pursue Him, donna)

  7. My gosh, would you kindly leave God to communicate with me directly, without feeling the need to “pass on” what he is “trying” to say to me directly, but for some reason known only to you, he simply cannot succeed in telling me directly and needs to tell YOU to pass it on to me?

    What a smug, self-sure person you are. You have such a sense of self-importance you can’t imagine God could get a word through to me without your assistance? You come on here and act like you’re the one with all the answers, because God reveals all to you in conversations and dreams. The truth is you know nothing about me, very little about this blog, and very little about God’s word.

    You knew however that this was a discernment blog. What did you expect? Did you think I would be praising the new false prophecies of Maurice Sklar, after his past record of one hundred percent failed prophecies over a span of a couple of decades? And that I would be encouraging him to continue down this spiritually very dangerous path he has chosen??

    When was the last time you actually read the Bible?

    I dust off my shoes and depart from you.

    With all this division no wonder the church is in such a mess and not fulfilling the great commission, yes we are called to test the spirits and use discernment we are in the last days. We are called to preach the truth, in that no lie can stand.

  9. Amen. If having discernment was important enough for Jesus to preach about it on many occasions, it amazes me how few Christians even give it a second thought. Someone says “God told me”, and all of a sudden we in the church are supposed to bow down to this idol of extra-biblical revelation through human dreams, and put away our Bibles.

    The church as a whole these days is becoming so divorced from plain and simple gospel preaching that its really frightening. Everyone and his brother wants to be a prophet, because it seems that is the most personally exhilarating and colorful position. It has the fringe benefits of exalting the “prophet” to a lofty perch, where he can command much attention and glorify himself greatly. Not too many people signing up for the office of martyrdom, though.

    So true, God calls us to lay down everything for him even if it includes our own life just as the Lord did for us so we can be saved. Also from my experience any word of prophecy is 100% correct, he doesn’t make mistakes.

  11. Marianne says:

    the things predicted will eventually happen, because the bible said so, and we are in the end times….but we cannot put dates on things.

    if someone claims god has given a date, then if it is true, god will NOT change his mind! it si done!

    Hi JD,
    I just want to share a little bit about my dream it was almost 2 yrs ago I dreamed about 4 cities in California will have earth quake, I really don’t know exactly what cities are but I saw a map of California, I saw 2 cities close to the water and the other are more like a valley. I watched on the news 3-4 days ago, they said in LA had an earthquake but not really big. Do you think this dreamed considered as a vision?

    Thank you. May God bless you.
