Mark Taylor, the firefighter turned Christian con man and “prophet” who claims to have prophecied the 9/11 attack (without any evidence, of course) says that those who claim he’s a false prophet will face the wrath of the Almighty because he has been anointed. He even cites one of his own failed “prophecies” while doing so.
“We have this movie that we rehearse over and over in our head, how we feel that something is supposed to come to pass, and when something doesn’t come to pass in the way that we’ve rehearsed it in our head—these unexpected expectations—then people say, ‘Oh, that’s a false prophecy,’” Taylor said. “No, it just didn’t come to pass the way you wanted it to.”
As an example, Taylor cited his prophecy that Barack Obama would serve a third term, which he said people label a false prophecy only because they don’t realize that Obama “is, in fact, running a shadow government.”“Guys, that is his third term right there,” Taylor said.
“I tell these keyboard commandos that before you hit that enter button and you attack someone, you had better make sure that they are not God’s anointed,” he added. “People don’t understand the implications of that. You are literally taking your life into your own hands right now because judgment is here. It’s not coming, it’s here on the earth right now and God’s not putting up with it. So before you go calling someone false, you have better make sure that you have got all your facts and your ducks in a row.”
That’s the brilliant thing about “prophecies.” When they don’t come true, you just reinterpret them. You pass them through the silly straw of their warped mindset and all of a sudden, magically, they did come true. Or they came true “in the spiritual realm.” As for God’s punishment, I’m happy to take my chances. I don’t think I’d call Taylor a false prophet because that would imply that there is such a thing as a real prophet. I’ll call him exactly what he is: A con artist fleecing the credulous.
