I’ve heard the name Cindy Jacobs and I’ve seen clips. I watched a couple of her videos on your blog, there. Personally, I think if you are going to accuse someone of a sin, you should have solid evidence. Prophesying falsely in the name of the LORD is bad enough to have been a death penalty crime in Israel. I can understand if, spiritually, you perceive that a prophecy is not from God and you want to share that, or to share a prophecy or revelation about a prophecy that isn’t genuine. But if you are just going from your own political senses, if this preacher she prophesied over is still alive, you don’t have any real objective grounds to condemn this prophecy.
Some prophecies take a long time to come to pass. Joseph had prophetic dreams about his brothers bowing down to him. Then he was sold as a slave. A slave in Egypt become master over his brothers in Canaan? How is that possible? Then he got thrown into prison.
Samuel annointed David king, but then Saul threw a spear at him and chased him around the coutnry trying to kill him. Finally, David fled to Philistia. What? some Israelite fighting with the Philistines hopes to the be king over Israel? What were the chances that what Samuel thought God told him about David was right?
How many decades did jeremiah spend prophesying about coming judgment and captivity while Judah lived in relative peace? what about all the prophets who prophesied before him? It must have felt like the prophecy would never come to pass. No doubt, many people who knew the political climate who heard Jeremiah yelling and crowds of people about these things must have thought he was nuts, that he was a proven false prophet whose words never came to pass.
If you know she’s prophesied something that is really objectively false, why don’t you post that, instead of something like this– a prophecy that hasn’t been fulfilled, but could theoretically come to pass. Sure, it doesn’t seem likely to come to pass, but that doesn’t mean it won’t. Also, this prophecy seemed to be conditional, that it is God’s will for him to be president, according to her, and there is a need for intercession. That doesn’t fit well with the thinking of heavily deterministic Calvinists who think history is already laid out in detail. But much of the Bible does not seem to be written from that perspective, IMO. if God is not willing that any should perish, does that mean that no one will really perish.
This article about suspected oil is interesting in light of one of her propheciesi on her page.ke I said, I don’t know much about Cindy Jacobs, and I can’t comment much on her track record.

If she lived during the OT time she would be stoned.

we like prophecy regardless if it is true or not. “Pickles have souls”

Well you don’t take the True part and disregard the part that didn’t come to pass. False prophet. God is always 100% right.

We see in part. We know in part. I do not mind someone a little off. If they hit the general target, I am ok with that….. it if the are completely off time and time again, that is different.
