Jeremiah Johnson, an evangelical Christian ‘prophet’ is ending his ministry after falsely predicting that Donald Trump would win a second term.
Johnson announced he’s ending ‘Jeremiah Johnson Ministries’ after facing backlash from the evangelical community for apologizing for predicting that Trump would win the 2020 election, according to the Washington Post.
He was in the middle of his “I Was Wrong” apology tour on YouTube when he decided to call it quits.
“I believe that it is a tremendous mistake to take the next four years to argue and debate and cause division and grow more prideful talking about how we think the election was taken from Donald Trump. I actually believe we need to take the next four years and humble ourselves,” Johnson said in a video of the series. “We need to recognize that God is up to something far greater in the prophetic, charismatic movement that I believe is beyond what many even recognize. We need to stop, we need to take a breather and we need to come back to a place where we can begin to dialogue about these issues rather than be so triggered,” he added.
In a since-deleted Facebook Post, Johnson said he made decision to end his ministry “after much prayer and the clear direction of the Lord.”
Johnson had built an audience online as one of the first evangelicals to take Trump’s candidacy seriously in 2015, the New York Times reports.
He has deleted all social media accounts linked to his ministry and has started ‘The Altar Global‘ a Christian website whose mission “is to help prepare the Bride of Christ for the return of our glorious Bridegroom King Jesus. We have been instructed to prepare an Altar for the Wedding day.”
That includes a yearlong program where Johnson and others will train students “on the lifestyle of an end-time messenger and the return of the Lord.” It also includes local and national conferences, monthly Zoom calls with supporters and books and other resources.
