Shawn Bolz, one of the charismatic leaders closely associated with Bethel Cult in Redding California claims that a leading New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) prophet predicted the Chiefs would win the Super Bowl and that will usher in a great revival.
Bolz, who claimed that prophecies of judgment aren’t from God, said on his Facebook page late Sunday evening that NAR apostle, Bob Jones, prophesied the NFL Super Bowl would be a harbinger for spiritual revival should the Kansas City Chiefs take away the highest trophy.
Bolz wrote, “Bob Jones had heard from God that the chiefs would go to the Super Bowl and win it. He shared that when they won it would be a sign of upcoming and end time revival.”
Bolz continued, “He explained that God is raising up His chiefs to be apostolic leaders in many spheres of influence.”
“Today if you follow football,” Bolz went on, “you will see that the Chiefs have their first chance for 50 years as they are going to the Super Bowl! This could be the time! Let’s pray!”
Bob Jones was a leader of the Kansas City Prophets, which gave birth to the International House of Prayer (IHOP) and stirred controversy by incessantly wrong prophecies. Not to be confused with Bob Jones Sr. of Bob Jones University, this Bob Jones claimed to have been visited by Gabriel the Archangel when he was seven years old, who supposedly blew a silver trumpet in his face and imparted him special supernatural gifts.
Charisma Mag reports…
“[Gabriel] then threw an old bull skin mantle at Bob’s feet. Although fearful at the time he ran, however, many years later he returned to pick up that old mantle which is that of a Seer Prophet. Bob Jones is known as a contemporary prophet with a great love for the Lord Jesus and His truth. His prophecies have spanned over four decades as the Lord has enabled him to foretell earthquakes, tidal waves, comets, and weather patterns. Like Daniel who functioned at an incredible level, Bob has often told leaders their dreams and experiences, as well as the interpretation.”
There is no written record of Bob Jones’ prophecies concerning the Kansas City Chiefs, and neither has the prophecy ever been mentioned prior to the Chiefs winning the AFC playoffs yesterday. Why didn’t this supposed prophecy come to the surface before now?
We already wrote about this ex post facto prophesying regarding Bolz in the article Charismatics, Stop Giving Prophetic Insights Into Events After They Happen.
It is certainly possible that Jones, being affiliated with Kansas City, had hopeful aspirations for the hometown team.
He is on record with Mike Bickle in claiming that he’s been wrong on prophecies hundreds of times.
