I was checking out the news article about American canceling 850 flights, when this paragraph struck me: “Bishop Bernard Jordan, a Harlem minister, was in a first-class line trying to catch a flight to Atlanta, where he was scheduled to preach Wednesday night”. Contrast this to what Jesus said to his disciples in Luke 9:3 –
And He said to them, “Take nothing for your journey, neither a staff, nor a bag, nor bread, nor money; and do not even have two tunics apiece.” (NASB)
I have never heard of this man. Prodding further, I went to his site, the headline of which screams “FREE Prophecies are back!”. Huh, when did prophecy come for a cost? It is so awful. Read about many of his antics here.
We should be very careful about such people. There are many youngsters, and particularly women, who are deceived by these people and fall in their trap. Remember what Jesus said in Matthew 7:15 –
“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”
