Harmful Faith Strikes Again

Updated: Aug 12, 2021

In this video a woman claims to have had a vision last year regarding the Corona Virus. In it she claims that “God overtook her”. She further goes on to say that this is a judgement due to American’s “turning away” from God. She says no amount of prayer will stop it.

When she goes on even further, she says, speaking for God, “What else would you have ME do?” “You have thrown me out of your lives, you have turned from me.” She hammers home that we’ve sinned as a Nation and that God is “allowing” this as a sort of reset.

Let’s look at scripture for a moment. Please understand that my own belief system does not see the Bible as infallible. However when in Rome as the saying goes, I am going to use the scriptures in the context of their meaning to show the harmful faith being put forward. Since she is using a semi-scriptural basis laced with her own understanding of it, let’s look at what was written about something similar to this:

Genesis 18

Abraham Pleads for Sodom

20Then the Lord said, “The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous 21that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know.”

22The men turned away and went toward Sodom, but Abraham remained standing before the Lord. d 23Then Abraham approached him and said: “Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? 24What if there are fifty righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not spare e the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it? 25Far be it from you to do such a thing—to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?”

26The Lord said, “If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake.”

27Then Abraham spoke up again: “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, though I am nothing but dust and ashes, 28what if the number of the righteous is five less than fifty? Will you destroy the whole city for lack of five people?”

“If I find forty-five there,” he said, “I will not destroy it.”

29Once again he spoke to him, “What if only forty are found there?”

He said, “For the sake of forty, I will not do it.”

30Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak. What if only thirty can be found there?”

He answered, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.”

31Abraham said, “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, what if only twenty can be found there?”

He said, “For the sake of twenty, I will not destroy it.” 32Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten can be found there?”

He answered, “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.”

33When the Lord had finished speaking with Abraham, he left, and Abraham returned home.

What we see here is that Abraham stepped in as an intercessor to keep God from His judgement of Sodom. NOTE what God said, “For the sake of ten I will not destroy it”, referring to Sodom. So, is this woman then saying that there are not at LEAST ten people in the USA who could pray, or who have a relationship with God?

Is she honestly saying not ONE in this entire country knows God or can pray? If that’s true what is she doing speaking FOR God?! Can we see the inconsistency here? IF there is not one righteous person then ipso facto she is not righteous. She has no business speaking for God then.

Matthew 7:15-20 King James Version (KJV)

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

What is the fruit of her so called “prophesy”? Is it to edify? No. Is it to uplift? No. All it does is to stoke fear and promote terror in the hearts of a Nation already terrified and crippled with fear. She is saying this is God’s Hand that cannot be turned back. She is insisting nothing will turn it away. Therefore, she is going directly against what we’ve seen in Genesis 18.

This is a worldwide pandemic not just relegated to the USA. There is worldwide judgement in Revelations, but that is very specific and does not apply. There are no other signs or guidelines to even suggest such a thing.

Also, biblical prophets do not go around promoting themselves. This is not the biblical standard at all. In fact, the standard is 100 percent accurate. Has this person been 100 percent accurate in all her utterances? Unlikely. The penalty for false prophesy in the Old Testament btw (and the God she is describing is more the Old Testament than the New Testament Jesus), was stoning.

How convenient it must be to rip scripture out of context this way. On the one hand people like this say that the Old Testament has been replaced by the New Testament, and we have a better covenant, and then when it suits them bring up the God of fire and judgement from the Old Testament. Well which is it? They need to make up their minds and not pull God out of a basket and portray God as it suits them for that moment in time.

Deuteronomy 13

13 “If a prophet or someone who has dreams arises among you and proclaims a sign or wonder to you, 2 and that sign or wonder he has promised you comes about, but he says, ‘Let us follow other gods,’ which you have not known, ‘and let us worship them,’ 3 do not listen to that prophet’s words or to that dreamer. For the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul. 4 You must follow the Lord your God and fear Him. You must keep His commands and listen to His voice; you must worship Him and remain faithful[a] to Him. 5 That prophet or dreamer must be put to death, because he has urged rebellion against the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the place of slavery, to turn you from the way the Lord your God has commanded you to walk. You must purge the evil from you.

4You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. 5For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope. 6For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

Galatians 5:4

7You were running a good race. Who cut in on you to keep you from obeying the truth? 8That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you. 9“A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough.” 10I am confident in the Lord that you will take no other view. The one who is throwing you into confusion, whoever that may be, will have to pay the penalty.

The point here is that a small bit of falsehood will permeate and change the entire message. We must be very careful what words we receive, and in what spirit they are given.

Hebrews 13:

7) Remember your leaders who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.


9) Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings, for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace and not by foods of no value to those devoted to them.

19) God is not a man that He should lie, nor a son of man that He should repent. Has He said and shall he not do it, or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

20) Behold I have received a command to bless: He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it.

God is the same, He does not lie. God is same yesterday, today, and forever, but capricious when it suits purveyors of Harmful Faith? He keeps to His word, but He’s ready to turn on a dime and bring judgement against both the good and the evil which is not in accordance to anything in their scripture?

I can only stress again, this is harmful faith. It is based on plucking pieces of scripture out of context without an understanding of the whole. It is based on fear rather than faith. It is using things out of context to preach hellfire, damnation, and judgement without understanding that they themselves according to their own bible will be judged and fall very short. In short it needs to be dismissed for the absolute nonsense it is.
