Update #1 Well that didn’t take long. Valloton has deleted his video (but some kind soul saved it in part) He updated his Instagram page with this note:
“Many have people asked me why I took my apology video down. After doing a lot more research, I decided to wait until the official vote count is complete as it appears that there is a significant amount of discrepancy in the process. In the meantime, I will be praying and believing for the will of the Lord to be done. If the outcome remains the same, I will repost my apology video. If my prophetic word turns out to be right, I will do the chicken dance in my spandex. God’s speed- humility is still the way forward!
Please don’t be rude or argue on my social page. Life is too short and you won’t change anyone’s mind arguing on a comment box on a social page.”
A charismatic ne’er-do-well prophet has publicly apologized to Joe Biden and his followers for uttering a false prophecy about Trump’s election win, calling it a “major, major mistake” and taking “full responsibility for being wrong.”
Kris Vallotton, who was last seen being the spokesperson for Bethel Church in California after a surge of COVID cases at the School of Supernatural Ministry that they could not supernaturally heal or minister to shut down a county of nearly 200,000 people, took to Instagram to publicly repent of his false prophet, while still insisting he’s not a false prophet.
I really want to apologize, sincerely apologize for missing the prophecy about Donald Trump. I prophecied that Donald Trump would be president 4 days after he took the nomination the first time. 4 days after he declared himself a candidate the first time I should say…and that was obviously right. And then, later on, I prophecied that he would not be impeached, and the fact that he would win another term. And I was completely wrong. I take full responsibility for being wrong.
There is no excuse for it. I think it doesn’t make me a false prophet but it does actually create a credibility gap. A lot of people trust me, trust my ministry, and I want to say I’m very sorry for everyone who put their trust in me, and there was this major, major mistake.
And I want to say I’m sorry, and I want to look into the reasons why there was a disconnection there in what I heard. And I have always believed that when you make a public declaration, that if you get it wrong you have to make a public apology.
And I want to say that I’ve never had to do that before. I prophecied in 14 years working in the political realm, and I’ve never had to make an apology for a bad prophetic word I’ve given, this is the first time, and I’m going to learn from it. This was a big mistake, and I hope that you’ll forgive me and I hope that we can all learn from it.
While we’re pleased he has apologized for fake word from the Lord, as any prophecy he gives would be false regardless of whether he gets it right or not, what is interesting is that Vallaton has no need to acknowledge his failure quite yet, as just because the media has declared Biden to be President-Elect, doesn’t make it so. If Valloton was listening to the Lord, he would hear the voice “Not yet.”
Of course, we know what the standard for a prophet is: “100% track record, every time, all the time, or else he’s put to death.”
But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.’ And if you say in your heart, ‘How may we know the word that the Lord has not spoken?’— when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him. Deuteronomy 18:20-22
