Prosperity gospel preachers “prophecies” about the corona virus pandemic have failed to manifest, as the pandemic has infected more and more people.
Pastor Shawn Bolz claimed to prophecy about the corona virus on the 28th of February, saying that “the tide is turning now!”.
Further he claimed that several vaccines were coming out, and “a natural dying out of the virus itself”.
To Fox News, the pastor said that “It’s not going to be the pandemic that people are afraid of”.
At the time of the claimed “prophecy” on the 28th February, there was around 84 000 infected worldwide, with almost 3 000 dead.
But the numbers have skyrocketed in just little over a month since the “prophecy”, with total number of infected now standing at 1 254 464 and nearly 70 000 deaths.
The controversial megachurch, Bethel Church Redding have suspended their “faith healing” ministry at local hospitals after the corona virus pandemic.
This church runs a school of supernatural ministry and is known for having “manifestations” at their church, such as people laughing uncontrollably and writhing on the floor.
Another prosperity gospel preacher, Kenneth Copeland, also claimed to “prophecy” regarding the corona virus.
On his YouTube channel, he claims that “the word of the Lord” came to him on the 13th of March, telling him that the disease called “CODV19” (this is wrong, the corona virus is called COVID-19) would “be over much sooner than you think”.
On the day of the claimed “prophecy” there was 145 000 cases worldwide. A few weeks later it has increased exponentially to 1 254 464.
In another desperate attempt a few weeks later on the 3rd of April, after his original “prophecy” failed to happen, Kenneth Copeland was once again attempting to stop the corona virus by praying for a “supernatural heat wave”, allthough scientists have cautioned against banking too much on the virus dying down over the summer.
Earlier, another prosperity gospel pastor was arrested in Florida after ignoring social distancing orders and holding sunday church service.
“And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.” Deuteronomy 18:21-22 KJV.
