When Prophecy Fails, Part 94

Via Mary Glazier, 25 September (as was widely blogged):

Just a few minutes ago Eleanor Roehl, a powerful [Christian] Eskimo intercessor and prophet, called me to say she senses an imminent attack against our nation.  Then Karen Fink came into my office to share the following revelation she had this past Friday with increasing weight on her heart ever since:

She received the scripture Gen. 50:3,”A period of NATIONAL MOURNING”.  She then saw Sarah Palin standing alone and she was mantled with the American flag.  The flag was upside down because things are inverted (upside down) right now.  I knew she was stepping into an office that she was mantled for.”

At this time I have a STRONG sense that we must pray for our President and Vice President and their families.  Also pray for the candidates running for election.  Something is imminent so we MUST pray to avert what is coming or to minimize it’s impact.

This is a tricky one: when prophesized disasters fail to materialize the explanation is usually that God changed his mind due to intercession – the Biblical examples are Jonah at Ninevah and King Hezekiah’s recovery from an illness that Isaiah said would kill him. However, if God has acted to prevent the disaster, how come we now have Obama winning an election, while the “mantled” Palin returns to obscurity?

A short time before her prophecy was announced, Roehl was in the UK; the South Wales Argus reports:

MOUNT Pleasant Church in Pontypool recently welcomed a special visitor- a Yupik Innuit woman from Alaska.

Eleanor Roehl is an ordained minister from New Stuyahok, Alaska, where Mount Pleasant Church is affiliated.

Reverend Victor Owens and representatives from his church make the trip to Alaska every January, and this year invited Ms Roehl to come to Wales and share her culture…

Some pics of Roehl’s dance moves at the Indigenous Ministries of Alaska (IMA) Summit can be seen here.

Glazier, meanwhile, as Bruce Wilson has noted, claims to have influenced Sarah Palin through her prayer group, and Palin put her on the  Alaska Suicide Prevention Council.

I blogged on a flurry of warnings from God concerning Obama that were received by neo-Pentecostal leaders just in time for the election here.

  1. The great thing about the mingling of politics and religion is that fundies are never put off by failure. They already believe a whole host of things that are demonstrably false so they’re not bothered when prophecies fail to come true.
