Question: This Winter Was Very Mild Compared To Previous Winters How Do You Explain That In Light Of Your Dire Predictions For This Winter?

 

Donald Bohanon; I actually made no specific predictions for this winter, only informing those who have the power to make changes for the better, that if they took steps to make those changes and were sincerely working to make changes, God would see it and stay his hand, and in some cases where it was warranted reverse some of the destruction that was already done.And in the case of a complete about face in relation to abominable evil and perverted behavior, he would heal the land.But if not, they could expect destructive weather events to begin to ramp up again.

 

After watching so many weather predictions of heavy snow and a brutal winter for most of the nation, by most meteorologist and climate scientists, because of the affects of man made climate change(as they foolishly claimed) I actually entreated God to do the opposite,in order to put them to shame, and to keep the focus on him and his proclamations, as opposed to the long term predictions of climate scientists and meteorologists.So instead of a brutal winter we had a very mild winter with virtually no snow fall in many parts of the country, but yet most meteorologist predicted it would be brutally cold with heavy snow.

 

So much so that many  states like Illinois for instance, and many others, stockpiled salt in anticipation of the brutal winter predicted by most meteorologist and climate scientist. So, quite the contrary,I actually went to God in prayer and asked that he bless the nation with a very mild winter to put egg on the faces of the self proclaimed experts, who have been wrong more often than not.

 

So I made no prediction of a brutal winter this year, but instead asked God directly,more like explained to him that he had to do the opposite, or contrary to the many predictions of a brutal winter by meteorologist and climate scientist, so as to destroy the credibility of these self proclaimed experts,to keep the focus on him and what he says as opposed to the predictions of men.God obviously heard and blessed us with an uncharacteristically mild winter.

 

That’s not to say I will do that everytime meteorologist and climate scientists make those kinds of predictions,because they will obviously try to manipulate the situation to get the outcomes they really desire. But whenever I make a direct prophetic statement you will find it here on my site, and rest assured God will perform it in accordance with his will.

 

And this is not to suggest we should disregard the short term predictions of meteorologist,because they perform a very important job.But only that we should not look to men or women for long term predictions as it relates to nation and world impacting events. Because they simply have an abysmal failure rate as it relates to those kinds of predictions and cannot accurately predict events far into the future.Only God can do that.

 

So let’s not forget most meteorologist and climate scientist predicted a brutal winter with bone chilling cold and heavy snow in many parts of the nation. I on the other hand entreated God directly, and explained to him he had to do the opposite to bring to nothing  the counsel and predictions of many proud, arrogant, blind men and women, in the weather and scientific community.This is not meant to exalt myself only to accurately respond to the question with a truthful answer.

 

Changing topic here for a moment, If you examine what I teach in audio and what I say in writing you will see that I always emphasize focusing on and following what God says in his word, as opposed to what men say and teach. I always emphasize  follow God and Christ  and what they teach, not what I say or teach. The focus is always on God and Christ and never on exalting myself. I always end most of my audios with the statement “don’t believe me,believe the word of God” and that’s what I live by and believe.

 

As opposed to those who teach doctrine and scripture contrary to what God and his word teach. Many of these same individuals, ego driven church leaders, who condemn those who disagree with their teachings and label them False Teachers and False Prophets, when some of their own teachings don’t line up with scripture.

 

So instead of changing those inaccurate teachings (about all men for instance, no matter how abominably sinful and evil they were, will be saved) to fall in line with scripture, I guess it’s easier to attack the person teaching what’s fully supported by scripture rather than admitting you are wrong.But that is not the type of character God is looking for in servant leaders.

 

I always try to provide several verses in scripture(not just one or two taken out of context) to validate or prove my point.Very few others use this method, and if they are it is normally done in a deceptive manner, using many verses that don’t correlate  or specifically say the same thing or support one another.Misinterpretations which when analyzed simply don’t make sense at all,and are not fully, contextually, supported by scripture.That’s not how the bible was meant to be interpreted.

 

Let’s not forget God said in the last days he would work a work among the heathen, that many including those in God’s churches,would not believe thou it be told them, and that they would perish or be destroyed for not believing it…Habakkuk 1:5, Acts 13:41. Some of these representatives in God’s churches also claim no mighty works have been performed in these end times to validate or prove that God’s Prophets and Apostles exist.

 

But have they been paying attention? Or do they simply refuse to acknowledge the obvious? And if that is the case I suppose that would disqualify them, because I have seen no mighty works performed by any of them.And in the case of some they are as quiet as mice, while abominations and gross sinful behavior proliferate and spiral out of control,and never utter a peep as it relates to this kind of corrupting,very destructive,extremely offensive behavior.

 

Falsely claiming, that if you claim to be an Apostle or Prophet yourself, this means you’re not a Prophet or Apostle? So I  suppose that disqualifies Paul and many of the old testament  Prophets and Apostles who are predestined, called Prophets and Apostles by God as outlined in his word, and even Christ as being the son of God, because Christ claimed to be the Messiah, the son of God? 1 Kings 18:22, Jeremiah 1:5,John 14:10, John 5:17,John 5:19-20,Romans 8:28-30. Simply put,God (not men) places in the church Apostles and Prophets, etc, in accordance with his will. God determines what role and position, predestined,called, elect men fulfill in his church.God determines who is a Prophet or an Apostle,etc. and not men within the church with inflated ego’s..1 Corinthians 12:28. 


Ephesians 1:1
King James Version (KJV)
1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:

 

 

 

1 Kings 18:22
King James Version (KJV)
22 Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the Lord; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men.

 


Falsely suggesting, indirectly,vanity exists,because I’m full of righteous indignation,speak the truth bluntly, and expose evil? You’re self willed only when you practice, promote and teach,information as a result of biblical misinterpretation motivated by selfish objectives that are contrary to what’s outlined in God’s word.Not because you disagree with points of doctrine that were created by men as a result  of biblical misinterpretation and which are contrary to God’s word.


 

1 Corinthians 12:28
King James Version (KJV)

28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.

 

 

Ephesians 5:10-13

King James Version (KJV)

10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

 

 

2 Timothy 4:2

King James Version (KJV)

2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

 

 

1 Timothy 5:20-21
King James Version (KJV)

20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

21 I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.

 


The bible says you will know true Prophets by the fact they condemn and speak out against abominable evil. By a predestination.By the persecution they suffer from friend,family and foe alike as those friends and family are influenced by Satan.By the doctrine they teach.By the power they display.And by the fulfillment of the prophetic statements they make.They obey God by following and living by his commandments and the bible as a whole and they produce spiritual fruit…Deuteronomy 18:22,Micah 3:8, Jeremiah 1:5,Jeremiah 44:4-7,1 John 2:22-23,1 John 5:9-12,John 9:31, Titus 1:14-16,Galatians 5:24, 1 John 3:10,Acts 1:8, Luke 24:49, 2 Timothy 3:5,Matthew 10:22,Matthew 10:34-40,Mark 13:13, Luke 6:22-26,1 John 3:13. 

 

Not necessarily based on whether they proclaim to be a Prophet or not,that is simply not biblical.The identifying factors are in the doctrine,persecution,obedience, predestination,fruit,power and fulfillment of prophetic statements. Petty jealousies resulting in taking bits and pieces of scripture out of context, and statements out of context, to attack,falsely accuse and discredit fellow servants, is something I refuse to engage in.

 

God’s servants suffer enough as a result of trials, tribulation and persecution. Fellow servants adding to that suffering,by attacking other fellow servants,is outright insane and evil and is a definite sign of carnality/evil,the lack of spiritual maturity, a lack of knowledge of scripture and or a clear disregard of scripture,and a lack of spiritual character.When Satan starts influencing you to attack fellow servants, as opposed to exposing evil (which is what you should be doing as servants) and those who practice and promote it, you are in a very dangerous place spiritually.

 

 


Matthew 24:48-51
King James Version (KJV)

48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 

 

1 Corinthians 3:3-4

King James Version (KJV)

3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?


But If I’m directly attacked I wont respond with false accusations and intentional misrepresentations and misinterpretations of scripture, as a means to attack, discredit and demonize fellow servants.But only breaking those verses and scriptures down,used and taken out of context to discredit me, using God’s word, to put them in their proper context,to set the record straight and prove my actions and statements are in line with and are supported by scripture.

 

That’s why I will be doing an audio soon completely dissecting the false teaching that all men will be saved, a dangerous teaching that promotes rebellion against God and his word, because it essentially teaches there is no consequence for evil behavior.Thereby encouraging more evil behavior and open rebellion against God and his word. I will be doing an audio exposing it for the  false error filled teaching that it is. Please stay tuned for that.

 

I’m sorry to disappoint many because I don’t view Mr. Armstrong as God, or place his words or any mans word above the word of God, when some of  those words conflict with the word of God. And I refuse to engage in direct attacks against any of God’s true servants,because a slight doctrinal error doesn’t dictate they are not God’s servants.

 

Or that the totality of the doctrine they teach is false because of one doctrinal error or difference.And if they are wise neither will they. Matthew 24:48-51.Having and keeping the right foundational doctrine is what’s important in terms of determining true Christianity and servantship.

 

A that’s defined by keeping the Commandments, the Holy Days and the word of God as a whole,while honoring the weekly and annual Sabbath’s. Along with faith  in conjunction with works and believing Christ is the son of God and savior of the world. James 2:20, James 2:24, 1 John 2:4-6, 2 John 1:9-11. Neither will I engage in useless debate, or try to prove whether I’m a Prophet or not. I will let God prove that to you,as I promote and teach his true doctrines and truths, and as I display and exercise power through him,as he fulfills my prophetic statements,etc.

 


Habakkuk 1:5
King James Version (KJV)

5 Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvelously: for I will work a work in your days which ye will not believe, though it be told you.

 

 

Acts 13:41

King James Version (KJV)

41 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.

 

 

Matthew 24:48-51
King James Version (KJV)

48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
