Kent Christmas Prophecy

Is the Kent Christmas Prophecy from God?

Kent Christmas prophesied that God was going to send wealth to Christians. He stated, “Land, titles, deed, money, businesses, wealth and inventions are now being released out of the heavens unto the saints of the Most High.” Is this Kent Christmas Prophecy a true prophecy from God? This prophecy can be heard here:

Here is my analyses of his prophecy:

This prophecy by Pastor Kent Christmas is very interesting. I have listened to it prayerfully three times. Here are my thoughts.

Scripture tells us that when the prophets speak, the Church is to pass judgment on the message, whether it is from the Lord: “Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others pass judgment.” (1 Corinthians 14:29) So let us weigh carefully what has been said.

My first reaction to the prophecy was that my flesh liked it. It made me feel like pumping my fist and saying, “Yes!” I certainly want President Trump to stay in office. I have been praying fervently and continually that the evil people who have orchestrated the steal of this election would be brought to justice. It would certainly be nice if many of the things he said came to pass. Judgment finally coming on those who fight against truth and justice sure sounded good!

I think I felt like James and John must have felt when a village of the Samaritans would not receive Jesus. They asked Jesus, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?” Of course, we know that Jesus rebuked them, saying, “You do not know what kind of spirit you are of; for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.” Jesus did not go in and conquer the village for the greater good of Israel. Scripture says, “they went on to another village.”

When Pastor Christmas prophesied, “I am going to cripple China for what they have done to the nations because they have tried to remove me from the earth.” I could not help but think of the many innocent people in that country that have no control and no choice in what their Communist leaders do. And I think of the underground Church in China that is far more anointed and alive that the Church in America. If anything happens to China, they will suffer as well. I had to ask myself, is this the Spirit of Jesus saying this?  Indeed, there will come a time of retribution against the ungodly, but it does not happen during the age of grace but happens after the return of Christ to this earth. While my flesh felt invigorated by the message, my spirit had a different reaction. I was not hearing the Spirit of the Lord bear witness with my spirit that this was from God.

My first thought concerning the prophesied blessings was, “Why?”  Has America repented and turned to God? Has the nation stopped murdering babies by the millions and repented of their sexual sin? Has America repented of the promotion of the perversion of homosexuality? Has the Church repented of its lackadaisical attitude and become on fire for Jesus? Are Christians spending hours on their knees seeking God? Or are things pretty much the same as they have been? Nothing has changed. These things are not happening. I have not seen the kind of repentance and revival that would bring the blessings of God upon America.  And riches and blessings are not likely to cause it to happen either. Usually, it takes tribulation and trials to bring people to their knees.

Pastor Christmas said that God is now going to “Declare war on the evil because they have declared war on me and my church.”  My question would be, why then did not God do that in the first century? Rome certainly declared war on the Church and God did not make them victorious over Rome. Paul said, “If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied.” (1 Co 15:19) and “Five times I received at the hands of the Jews the forty lashes less one. Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I was adrift at sea; on frequent journeys, in danger from rivers, danger from robbers, danger from my own people, danger from Gentiles, danger in the city, danger in the wilderness, danger at sea, danger from false brothers; in toil and hardship, through many a sleepless night, in hunger and thirst, often without food, in cold and exposure.”  (2 Co 11:24-27)

We must remember that Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world.” All the apostles were martyred and the Church at that time was truly on fire for Jesus. If God didn’t do it then, for a church on fire, why would he do it now for a lukewarm church?

Making America great again is something I hope and pray for, but to be honest with myself, I must admit, that is not the primary focus of the Gospel. Bringing souls to Jesus in good times and bad is what we must concern ourselves with. If anyone had a right to expect Jesus to make them victorious, it would have been the apostles, but when they asked the resurrected Jesus, “Will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel? Jesus told them that was not their concern, and he continued, “but you will be my witnesses…”

God’s concern is not so much for our material wealth. He is primarily concerned with our spiritual health, which is far more important. Yet Pastor Christmas’ message focuses on the material. He claims that God says this for 2020: “I will be taking the wealth of the wicked and transferring it to the saints of the Most High. I did not cause you to be poor. I take pleasure in the prosperity of my servants. Land, titles, deed, money, businesses, wealth and inventions are now being released out of the heavens unto the saints of the Most High for what I’m going to do will not be a cheap move but it will be the riches of glory being displayed in the earth for what I’m going to accomplish.”

This is the prosperity gospel, which is a false gospel that has spread to many churches. It tickles the itching ears of the hearers, but it is not the true Gospel. God did not make any of the apostles rich and God is not going to be doing that as a general rule for all Christians. He never has and never will. As it is written:

“For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong…” (1 Co 1:26-27)

“Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him? But you have dishonored the poor man. Are not the rich the ones who oppress you, and the ones who drag you into court? Are they not the ones who blaspheme the honorable name by which you were called?” (James 2:5-7)

I am reminded of Isaiah 30:10, where God scolds the people of Israel for telling their prophets “Do not prophesy to us what is right; speak to us smooth things, prophesy illusions…” In 2 Chronicles 18:7 we read that the king of Israel only wanted to hear from his seers who prophesied good things. He said to Jehoshaphat, “There is still one prophet through whom we can inquire of the Lord, but I hate him because he never prophesies anything good about me, but always bad.”

Pastor Christmas says, that in January 2021 the angel Michael shall arise and that “the throne room of the Lord will not be occupied by imposters.” First of all, the Oval Office is not the throne room of the Lord. That resides in heaven. Secondly, the Bible gives us another test to see if a prophecy is true:

“When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously.” (Deuteronomy 18:22)

We will have to wait and see if Trump is victorious and the Christians of America suddenly become wealthy with “Land, titles, deeds, money, and businesses.” When all that does not happen, then we will know for sure his prophecy is not from God. However, we do not have to wait to find out, for Pastor Christmas made prophecies in 2018, 2019 and 2020. We can look and see if they came true. I have checked. They have not. Just one example: He said (early in 2020), “By the end of this year, says God, the greatest outpouring that you’ve ever seen is going to hit the United States of America.” We have about a week and half to go. I have not seen a great revival.

There are other things which he said that just seem a bit off. Here is just one of them: He said, “The voice of the church in this hour are my prophets and they will not be silenced.” That statement is not really biblical. The Bible is God’s word for the hour. I believe in the New Testament gift of prophecy. I operate in it as the Spirit leads. However New Testament prophecy is not authoritative as the Scripture is. The Bible says “he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men.” (1 Co 14:3). New Testament prophecy differs from Old Testament prophecy. Today, prophecy does not speak with authority to declare the gospel as some sort of authoritarian “voice of the Church.” Many false teachers claim that they are the voice of the Church because they want people to believe all they say without question. New Testament prophecy simply does not work that way.

Besides preaching a false prosperity gospel, Pastor Christmas also refers to himself as an apostle. Apparently, he is part of the “five-fold ministry” movement that claims there are apostles today. There are no apostles today. Scripture defines an apostle as someone who was alive during Jesus’ life, crucifixion and resurrection, so that he can be a witness to those facts. Paul wrote, “Am I not an apostle – Have I not seen Jesus our Lord?” (1 Co 9:1). Apostles write scripture and have extraordinary doctrinal authority. Today we look to the Bible, the writing of the true apostles for ultimate truth. Revelation 2:2 says, “I know your works, and your toil and perseverance, and that you can’t tolerate evil men, and have tested those who call themselves apostles, and they are not.” Here is an excellent article on that subject. https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/stewart_don/faq/the-various-gifts-of-the-holy-spirit/08-are-there-still-apostles-today.cfm

Well, those are my thoughts. I don’t know much about Pastor Christmas, so I’ll just say perhaps he is a nice man, a genuine Christian. I don’t know him. He probably means well, but I don’t think his prophecy is from God. He certainly can write a paper and read it with much emotion and make it sound like it is from God, but dramatic oratory is not the same thing as the anointing of God.

I was hoping we would at least get another four years of having a president with some common sense. Perhaps not. We shall see. I think we are in for hard times. Persecution of the Church is going to increase exponentially. This is a time to draw near to Jesus like never before. We need the power of the Holy Spirit to guide us with wisdom and caution through the coming days. We are warned that many will fall away because of persecution. We need to be prayed up and ready. The Rapture will occur suddenly. Jesus could come for his Church at any moment. Let us not look for worldly riches, but look up to Him. “But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 3:20)

During the coming persecution we can lead many to the Lord if we are led by the Spirit. As the world heads into the turmoil of the last days, some people will be more eager to hear the Gospel. I pray we are all anointed with the boldness, the joy, the power and the love that will draw people to the Savior. This world is passing away. Let us set our hearts upon the Kingdom of Heaven. The time will come when we will inherit the earth. That time is not now, so we must busy ourselves with loving God, loving people, and realize that “the world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.” (1 John 2:17) and “Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? “(James 4:4)

I love America and wish it to prosper. Yet, we must pray as Jesus did, “Not my will, but Yours be done.” (Luke 22:44). We must have the attitude of Job, “Should we accept only good things from the hand of God and never anything bad?” (Job 2:10). We must love God and his kingdom more than we love America. Paul spoke of “dying daily.” If the America we know and love, the America as it was founded by righteous men, if that America passes away, let us hold tight to that future hope in Christ that will one day bring all the world under His glorious rule. God has his own timetable for the end of days events that we know must happen. I don’t know what will happen with the election. God has not revealed it to me. I only hear the Spirit saying, “Be my witness.” I do know that we can trust God with our lives and our future, no matter what happens on January 6th.

Update 2022: The election was stolen by Biden and the Democrats, who immediately destroyed our energy sector,  tucked-tail and ran out of Afghanistan, abandoned 85 billion dollars of military equipment and stranded Americans in a hostile country where Muslim terrorists took over. Seeing this cowardice and malfeasance, China has begun licking its chops over taking Taiwan and Putin invaded Ukraine. The world teeters on the precipice of World War III. Inflation is souring and gasoline is approaching five dollars a gallon. I would say with confidence that the Kent Christmas Prophecy was not of God. 

“When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously.” (Deuteronomy 18:22)
