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. 

http://www.mauricesklar.com/Teachings/Preparation_of_the_Bride/preparation_of_the_bride.html

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 http://www.mauricesklar.com/Teachings/The_Coming_Threats/the_coming_threats.html

July 13, 2010  The Restrainer http://www.mauricesklar.com/Teachings/The_Retrainer/the_retrainer.html

December 1, 2011 “The Lord Says

http://www.mauricesklar.com/Teachings/Prophecy/prophecy.html

“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 http://www.injesus.com/messages/content/414964

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)

http://www.mauricesklar.com/Teachings/A_Vision_of_Heaven/a_vision_of_heaven.html

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 

http://www.mauricesklar.com/Teachings/Recent_Vision/recent_vision.html

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 http://letusreason.org/Latrain4.htm 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:

http://www.mauricesklar.com/Teachings/Coming_Shakings_/coming_shakings_.html

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,

JD Ellis

  1. Jim says:

    Dude… excellent series of exchanges. I thought you were gracious and consistent. These “prophetic” individuals need to be held accountable for the consequences “raising the alarm” has, over time, on the people who believe these “prophets” actually hear God’s “secret counsel”. Decades are lost and people miss out on the day to day blessing of participation in the on-going coming of the Kingdom of God. These “prophetic” idiots need to be publicly confronted and, in my flesh, I’d like to beat them silly. One of your readers is correct in pointing out that it is the devil who comes to steal, kill and destroy. I couldn’t think of 3 better words to describe the net effect listening to and reading these “prophetic” words has on people. They steal life because you become hyper focused on all the wrong things. Jesus came to give us life, right now… we can participate in his life and his desire to bring that life to everyone. These “prophecies” kill hope. People end up living in a semi heightened to full on heightened sense of tension… stress, anxiety… waiting for the next event to happen or, worse, worried about covering their own rear ends. I’m pretty sure Jesus and his disciples didn’t get the “cover your own rear end” memo. I’m also pretty sure the word of God tells us to not be anxious… that God has not given us a spirit of intimidation. Yet the net effect these “prophetic” individuals have on people with no maturity, no grounding in the word of God, is exactly that… fear and anxiety. The root system of this issue is so complex and convoluted yet, as I see it, the main cause is most Christians that I know and it’s not a stretch to think it’s true everywhere, have never been discipled. Their “christianity” is an accessory to their lives. People think they’ve invited Jesus into their lives… this year they’re going to make him a bigger part of their lives. That’s an egocentric lens that leads to all sorts of trouble. The Gospel isn’t the news that we invite Jesus into our lives… the Gospel is the news that the Father, Son and Spirit have invited us into their life and that LIFE is exactly what the devil steals, kills and destroys through the abuses of the “prophetic”. Paul told the Colossians that Jesus IS our life. I have spent more than 40 years within the “charismatic” part of the Church and I think John MacArthur was right to point out the damage that has been done to the body of Christ through it’s excesses and abuses. To me, the abuse of so-called “prophets” is on the top of the list. I affirm you brother… keep up the good work.

    Peace,

    Jim

  2. Exactly Marianne. These things happen because scripture tells us. We should call out anyone in the church who wants to claim credit for getting the “inside scoop” from the Lord through his dreams or visions. Hold scripture high, and boast not of one’s “elevated” spiritual status achieved thru “experiences.”

    Blessings,
    JD Ellis

  3. I think God can reveal things to us individually in any manner. But I don’t believe he gives new revelation to his church today. God knows the nature of man, his creation. Man always seeks something new and fresh, and quickly loses interest with anything more than a few days old. We see the danger of this when people elevate their dreams and visions high above scriptural truth. The thinking goes like this: “Who wants to read what God said 2000 years ago, when I can go to prophets and seers and find out what the Lord is saying TODAY!” Problem is, it doesn’t work that way.

    JD Ellis

  4. Thanks Jim. I’m writing a new article on Rick Wiles and Maurice Sklar. Stay tuned. You make many valid points.

    All blessings in Christ,

  5. Cathy says:

    I am a Spirit filled Chrisrian and your judgments of these men of God have grieved my spirit. I am sure you have good intentions but you dont need to put yourself in the position of judge or else others will be judging you in like manner. If you feel that these men are wrong you need to pray for them rather than publically judging them with such disgust. Your actions speak louder than you think. I know many years ago, I personally had judged a man of God to be in much error, and had only verbaly said so to my husband and family and with a disgusting know it allness. Well , when I went to an amazing revival, while the preacher was preaching about nothing to do with this, the Lord spoke to my heart and said,”you need to repent! You are not far from blaspheming the Holy spirit” and I was shocked ans sais mentally to the Lord, “but Lord, I would never do that!” and He said to me, ” you know the man that you thought was way off and misled….that man is My servant and he is following Me and you are the one that is wrong and you are not far from blaspheming theHoly Spirit “……well, I knew that blasphwming the Holy Spirt was the unforgivable sin and l will tell you that I immediately repented and literally ran down to the altar as fast as I could and cried out for forgiveness and was forgiven and my eyes were open to truths that I have never seen before. I have never forgotten another thing the Lord told me that night…He told me that I would personally ask that man of God (in person) to forgive me and I had not seen that preacher before that last meeting in 20 years or so before the meeting in my home town. He lives on the other side of the country and I didnt travel much at all and certainly no where he was. The following Sunday, we went to a new church we had visited in our town several times and guess who the guest speaker was?!!!!!! Yes, it was him….the man I had judged to be in error and yes, I went to him at the end of the service and told him that I had judged his ministry to have gone into error and told him what the Lord told me at the revival and personally asked him to forgive me for judging him, a man of God. Of course, he probably thought that I was fruitcakes as I was a no one and he was a very well known preacher, but he graciously listened to me and said he forgave me. It was a confirmation to me from the Lord that I had truly heard from God at that revival. I have never forgotten that lessonto this day. Please be careful of what you are saying about these men as you will be facing your judge one day and you dont ever want to be found guilty before that Judge. I amnot judging you either as that is not my place or position.

  6. Thanks for your comments Cathy. I entirely disagree, but your comments are so typical of what the church believes today that it serves as a good example to use.

    You are among the many in the church today who have come to believe the deception that doctrine doesn’t matter anymore, that scripture runs a distant second to human dreams and visions in terms of authority, and that these experiences should be lifted high as a shining example of true Christianity.

    People who hold up their visions as something to focus on are defying the clear truth of the gospel. They are idolizing the experiences of boastful men. Even if Maurice Sklar HAD ACTUALLY BEEN LIFTED UP TO HEAVEN, which I seriously doubt, he has no business boasting about it in interviews and mp3 recordings. This is blatant misuse of the spiritual gifts.

    Use your common sense, Cathy. This man claims he went to heaven, and the Lord conducted a symphony in his honor. This is a doctrine of devils Cathy. Please, I appeal to you. Are you not capable of seeing that a person is lying if he says the Lord HONORS US when we go to heaven? I truly pray for you if you can’t see this.

    You warn me of blaspheming the Holy Spirit and yet you fail to recognize the blatant blasphemy of Rick Wiles and Maurice Sklar. People like you are gullible. Gullibility in the church is why there are men like this preaching a false gospel. They know they have a large audience, because most in the church are not familiar with biblical truth.

    Please go to your bible and turn to 2 Cor. Please read all of chap. 11 and all of chap. 12. In fact, all of 1 Cor. and 2 Cor. should be read very carefully. Please see for yourself how Paul warned the church at Corinth over and over about their becoming infatuated about their gifts, and about the false apostles coming in and making merchandise of them because of their rejecting the true gospel of Christ for this nonsense of showing off spiritual gifts.

    The false apostles at Corinth (Paul calls them “super-apostles”, in sarcasm), were replacing a love of Christ with a love of their spiritual gifts. Paul rejects them. He doesn’t say we must all get along for the sake of unity in the church. Nothing of the sort. He calls them right out on the carpet in his letters to the church.

    You see Cathy, it is never blasphemy to stand up for gospel truth. The ones you should be sending your warning to are people like Sklar and Wiles, who are nothing short of agents of the devil preaching their gospel of gifts, and boasting of their spiritual experiences. Wiles’s radio show is ninety percent boasting and extravagant lies, mixed with a dash of real gospel to keep his audience hooked and coming back for more. Its the same thing, day after day, year after year. He has Christians chasing after falsehood on a daily basis, and puts the holy name of Christ on it to legitimize it.

    I will turn your warning to me back to you, Cathy. Please study the Bible very well, especially the N.T. and what Paul said. Please come out of your entrapment by the modern day super-apostles and this demonic fascination with gifts. These men are nothing short of devils dressed as angels of light.

    Praying for you,
    JD Ellis

  7. Dr. Maurice H. Sklar says:

    If you are that convinced that I am a false prophet, than it is your obligation to be the first one to throw a stone at me. The Torah states clearly that I should be stoned to death. But, does God change His mind and delay His judgments? Yes, He does! I stated very clearly that I believe that the dates on those calamities I saw were CONDITIONAL UPON THE PRAYERS AND REPENTANCE OF GOD’S PEOPLE. You would have been the first to stone Abraham, Noah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Jonah, Agabus, Paul on the ship in Acts 27, AND EVEN JESUS, among many others. I do NOT claim infallibility…I have missed it in prophecies before, yes. BUT, You are the one that is in the greatest danger, sir. You are proud, unteachable, hard hearted, HERETICAL, blasphemous against all working of the Holy Spirit today, and deluded in your own self righteous…a first class Pharisee of our generation! You qualify for the most scathing of Yeshua’s rebukes…may I remind you…”you snake, you scorpion, you hypocrite, strain at a gnat and swallow a camel…HOW CAN YOU ESCAPE THE DAMNATION OF HELL?!!” THAT IS WHAT THE HOLY SPIRIT SAYS OF YOU AND YOUR “MINISTRY”. the best possible thing you could do is leave your false demonic “ministry” and go flip burgers, sell shoes, or do ANYTHING ELSE and never spue out your bitter lying filth again. At least then, you could lessen a little of the torments you will experience in hell as a false teacher…which YOU ARE. May God have mercy on your reprobate soul.

    Dr. Maurice H. Sklar

  8. What ? You’re telling me I”M OBLIGATED TO STONE YOU TO DEATH? Only if I care to throw out the entire New Testament and its unfolding of the new covenant.

    Does God change his mind? Its his prerogative to do anything his will dictates. God has a plan for everything which he set in motion at Creation, but I don’t believe he gives you, or Rick Wiles, or anyone else dream after dream, vision after vision, just to sit back and watch NONE of it unfold. God is a God of peace and order. He would not confuse his people by sending a prophet who does nothing but broadcast what is NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

    God in the Bible stayed his hand because of the repentance of the people, in at least one instance – Nineveh. This by no means infers that this is now the NEW STANDARD for prophecy – that he will tell his prophets only things which SHALL NOT OCCUR. In order to claim that every single one of your hundreds of unfulfilled prophecies for the past 30 years was stayed because of repentance, you would have to at least show some iota of evidence that the people of the country where the judgment was deemed ACTUALLY REPENTED. No, its not enough just to play the “repentance card.” Many of the events you “foresaw” were located in America, and many had dates that have passed. Only a lunatic would claim there was “Nineveh-like” repentance demonstrated by America. And God gave you the dates because he didn’t know that the events wouldn’t happen??

    I hope the whole world is watching right now. This is something for the whole church to witness – the true wiles of the devil being played out right here, right now. You put God’s name on your evil false prophecies, and now you put his holy name on your attempts to claim that their failure had his blessing, because of “prayer” that was somehow unforeseen.

    People like you only have an audience because the people in today’s church are so woefully undereducated in biblical truth. If more knew their scripture you would never have gained any kind of following in the first place, outside of the music world. You can tell me to “flip hamburgers” or “sell shoes” if you like. I thank you for that. It shows for all to see the deep condescension you harbor for those you think are lower than your “elevated class status.” Which basically includes just about everyone else. Any reader of scripture knows a true prophet would never say something like this. True and deep humility is always the mark of a true prophet. You are so full of yourself and your deep sense of self-importance, and it shows in every “prophetic” utterance you make.

    It is not my “contention” that you are a false prophet. You are a false prophet by declaration of the Bible. You are an agent of Satan, all dressed up in fine silk just like the scripture tells us. Yes, you come as an angel of light. How wise was Jesus to spend so much time warning us of the wolves who would come in the last times to prey on his flock.

    In closing I would like to simply quote a note I received from someone who had an experience with you, Dr. Sklar, in Israel, which I believe is true and heartfelt. There’s some detail here that I have been able to verify. I believe in the sincerity of the writer, and have every reason to believe in its truth. This is for all those readers who don’t think there’s any real harm in what false teachers do. People that think, as you would have them believe, that all this discussion is “straining at a gnat”, i.e. of no consequence. You know, the kind that are always saying we should ALL JUST GET ALONG, like Rodney King once said, and put aside all differences. This is a note I received:

    I had occasion to meet Maurice Sklar on a recent trip to Israel, where he performed at a birthday celebration. After the concert, I was called from my room, close to midnight, by one of his followers who proclaimed him a “Healer” who had worked with Benny Hinn. I had earlier in the tour stated that I was hoping that God would heal me of crippling arthritis. Dr. Sklar prayed for me, laid on hands, and challenged me to “just receive”. Of course, the onus was on me, and I was made to feel inadequate, without faith, and unreceptive to his healing power, as I left this bizarre encounter, still needing my walker. Could it be that God did not heal me at that time simply because He did not want to add to Maurice Sklar’s tremendously misguided ego?

    After I had tried to console her and offer the love of Christ in her pain, inflicted by YOU, Dr. Sklar, she replied with this:

    Thank you, JD, for your confirmation of the conclusion I came to about Maurice Sklar. I am following your advice to go directly to Yeshua, because I do not need an intermediary to receive healing, though I certainly appreciate the prayers offered for me. I love my Savior and thank Him for giving me the gift of Faith, and I look forward with hope to a future of service to Him.

    I say this not to elevate my ministry in any way, as the Lord is my witness, but to show anyone in the church today who may make the mistake of continuing to follow your demonic ministry, Brethren, PLEASE TAKE HEED. These people are not harmless. They will merchandise you, and then devour you, and cause you to be cast into the pits of hell. Don’t follow any man, especially when it comes to so-called “new revelation” from God. Brethren, go with God’s written word. The Bible is the “more sure word of prophecy” written about in 2 Peter 1:19. Its the sure path to lead you to heaven, and stands for all time as God’s revelation to men. With men, you never know what’s underneath that outer layer of spirituality and sanctity, and its truly an UNSURE WORD which you will be getting.

    JD Ellis the Kingdom of God is at hand to warn you, Repent.
    Your are clearly the one deluded here and the Holy Spirit did not inspire you to write this erroneous work against the body. He who does not have the Holy Spirit as guide is not on the side of Heaven. You need to seek God on this matter and stop pressing on assumptively. You are getting close to if you already haven’t blasphemed the Holy Spirit like the men that accused Christ of doing miracles by the enemy’s power. Ninevah’s judgement was delayed 40 years because enough people repented and prayed. So you are in grave error when you claim that God can’t stay or delay prophecies when enough people repent, you clearly don’t understand how prophecies work, some are conditional, some are warnings of God’s plan of action if people dont repent or change from a course that will provoke God to some sort of response. Case in point, Prophet Efrain Rodriguez of Puerto Rico http://youtu.be/EWhCZgID6tY was shown that a meteor will strike in the atlantic and devastate Puerto Rico and the U.S. with a coast killing tsunami and nation splitting earth quake if the U.S. dares to cause the Israeli’s to divide their Holy covenant land with the Palestinians, so the prophets having been calling for people to fast and pray that John Kerry doesn’t get an Palestinian State formed this year which would divide the Holy covenant land, John Kerry wants to have this established by april, so we are set to pray against that God provoking offence. You need to be very careful of your words against prophets of God because the bible clearly warns about touching the Lord’s annointed or His prophets. If a prophet does his Job the people are warned and they repent then the judgement doesn’t have to come, some of Jeremiah’s prophecies haven’t come to pass, would you dare call him a false prophet? The only Prophecies that are set in stone are the ones like the return of Christ at the end of the tribulation and New Jerusalem being set up on earth, these will happen no matter what. Please get on your face in prayer and seek God’s face and ask Him who his real workmen and prophets are so that you can stop accusing the brethren and stirring up strife in the body. Consider this an open rebuke and correction.
    God bless you.

    Thanks for your work Mr.Ellis,been tracking this stuff since the early eighties,used to treat cancer and lost a patient due to a false prophecy given by Kim Clement, who told the patient to fore go the treatment and she subsequently died,blaming herself for her lack of faith.I must confess
    though, I am guilty of listening to these guys out of boredom.Your ministry
    really helps put things in the proper perspective.Keep the faith my brother.
    Armin

  11. Thank you Armin. Praise God that at least some are able to see through the haze of this false prophetic age in the church today. I also started listening to these guys years ago, and I soon realized all they want to do is get us hooked on one storyline after another, one “vision” after another, and how quickly these become our idols! The visions and the dreams have become the golden calf of the modern day church.

    My heart and soul are troubled by how many are willing to forsake all to support false visions. In the process of uplifting the false prophets, they denigrate the holy name of our Lord, and make him appear to non-believers and believers alike to be a kind of bumbling fool who simply cannot make up his mind and actually allow a SINGLE DREAM OR VISION TO ACTUALLY TAKE PLACE, out of literally tens of thousands supposedly being issued by the thousands of “prophets” all across the world today.

    I understand the argument that God “can” delay or stay a judgment. But zero out of tens of thousands actually HAPPEN? ZERO fulfillment? That is mocking God, and God will not be mocked. I get warnings all the time, that I am attacking God’s “anointed.” Honestly, it is a wicked “anointing” to just sit at a computer and start typing whatever nonsense comes into your head, and then tack on God’s name at the end. And to do the same thing over, and over, and over again for thirty years. The Bible tells us that the worst of God’s judgments is sure to come to the ones who do this. God has always from the time of creation been extremely zealous in protecting the sanctity and integrity of his holy Word. Those who play fast and loose with this holy Word of God will suffer unimaginable torment for all eternity.

    2 Cor. 11:15 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.

    And Kim Clement is without any shadow of a doubt, a horrendously wicked false prophet. Your testimony about the death he caused by falsely invoking God’s name is chilling. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Perhaps some of the supporters of the false prophets will take notice when they see people are actually dying because of false doctrine and false testimony in the Lord’s name.

    This is what Maurice Sklar and his pal Benny Hinn do: they place their “hands of healing” over the person, and then when the person is not healed, they just blame the victim for not having “enough faith.” If people would just take the time to put down the books of the false prophets long enough to consult their Bibles, they would clearly see that having “enough faith” is not, and was NEVER, a requirement for healing to take place. Healing is ALWAYS entirely in the hands of God, and never in the hands of the patient or the human “healer.” Many times people completely lacking faith were healed in the scriptures.

    All blessings in Christ,
    JD Ellis

    JD Ellis, That Passage of Scripture in the Book of Acts, concerning the sons of Sceva, where it refers to the demons knowing Yahushua (JESUS CHRIST) and the Apostle Paul but not those sons, is not saying that Exorcism is a “false practice” initiated and perpetuated by the Roman Catholic church. Rather, that Passage is pointing out that the sons of Sceva were not true Believers in Yahushua (JESUS) as the Apostle Paul was. So, they did not have within them the Holy Spirit’s Presence and Power to be able to have authority and Power over those demons. Remember, Yahushua (JESUS) said, in John 14:12, that we, His true Followers, will do even greater Works than what Yahushua Himself did when He first walked the Earth as a Man. He cast out devils from people many a time, (i.e., Luke 8:26-33). So, likewise, shall we do, His true Church.
