Pastor Jeremiah Johnson, a self-described “prophet” who said earlier this month that Dr. Anthony Fauci was a “big rat” sent by Satan to thwart Donald Trump, made a remarkable comment during a livestream Sunday.

He explained that he once got a sign from God that a certain businessman would become a millionaire. Instead, the man went bankrupt. What does that mean?

It means the prophesy was true!

Years ago, I prophesied to a man in a meeting — I got his name, the Lord showed me a large business, he was gonna become a multi-millionaire, I mean, tremendous! I mean, it was probably, like, the greatest prosperity [unintelligible] I ever gave. I mean, I could have preached with the best of them. This came on me.

He called the office five days later and said, “You’re a false prophet. My company just went bankrupt.”

Now, listen to what I’ve been teaching you today by the Word of God. I said, “Brother, I actually believe now, after what you’ve told me, that that was the Word of the Lord.” I measure prophetic accuracy by how much warfare follows it.

I said, “I’m now convinced that is the Word of the Lord. Because now it’s getting tested! Now God is going to strip you down, and humble you, and really see where your heart’s at! Can you really steward those millions?”

No, but we just want the word of the Lord in that week. Money from Heaven. Money cometh. Whatever.

So if I have this right, Johnson predicted someone would become a millionaire because God said that would happen. Then it didn’t happen. And therefore the prediction is correct because it’s really testing the man’s faith.

I always knew Christian logic was strained, but it’s still amazing to see it in practice without anyone pushing back on how deranged it is.
