Kris Vallotton, Johnny Enlow, and Two Words for 2017

In the past four days, I have experienced two events that have forever marked me…

one miraculous; one devastating.

My grandson was born…healthy and beautiful and wondrous…

8 pounds and 11 ounces of promise and life…


a gracious friend and business partner of twenty five years died.

A miracle…sublime perfection and joy in flesh.


death…an enemy still triumphant.

See…here’s the thing.  God speaks to me in certain ways. Sometimes I don’t like it. Honestly.  Last year, I heard Him say that it was the year of betrayal.  I knew the POTUS would betray Israel towards the end of the year. I told my close friend and wife.  That’s it.  I also knew that many in the Church would betray the foundation and embrace a “new” or “another” gospel. I just never expected betrayal in my own life.  My point? I can’t separate myself from what I “hear”. Prophecy. Prophets. The “prophetic”. Blah…blah…blah.  Another word for the year? Another 2017 prediction? Yah…I am sick of it. I don’t understand how they can do it.  What are they doing to themselves…let alone their followers?  It seems to be more about the messenger than the message…that special day or event where the prophet releases his word.  Hah.  I want to give you two examples.  Please stick with me through this…maybe this “word” for 2017 will be different than the usual yearly “prophetic word”


In 2016, Kris Vallotton predicted…

 “a Russian “reformation”…

 a “spiritual awakening that is unprecedented in modern history”…

every city(in Russia) filled with joy and prosperity…

medical breakthroughs, inventions and innovations…

an historic economic boom as Russia exports their medical cures, automobiles (two new brands of cars even) and inventions to the nations of the world

great collaborations between government, commerce and business

corporations moving to the land (Russia) to be celebrated and empowered

great incentives given by the government to those that created wealth…lessons taken right out of the parables of the Talents and the Minas that Jesus told.

the righteous reigned in the land and a Jesus movement that will touch the entire world will be birthed in the universities, beginning in Moscow…

Russia becomes another big brother to Israel and makes a tridimensional covenant with her…

a cord of three strands which is not quickly torn apart

this partnership released a new era of forgiveness, security, and prosperity in both countries…


End of Kris Vallotton’s 2016 prophecy.

Now…he can cover his “prophetic butt” and say that we didn’t pray or intercede enough…

or he might say that he was seeing something future and the seeds were planted in 2016

or who knows what he could say or would say.

But, I will say this…

The exact opposite happened. Again…the exact opposite happened.

Russia grew…expanded its influence…erased the boundaries in the Middle East fought for during the “cold war”…manipulated and influenced the world in ways not seen in decades…and along with China, Venezuala, and Obama…betrayed/attacked Israel by using the U.N. Security Council.

In other words…nothing has changed. No reformation has started. No revival. No medical discoveries. No new automobiles…and definitely no new brotherhood and protection or defense of Israel by Russia and Putin.

Kris Vallotton prophecied out of his own narrative/filter and soul.

It was false. Wrong. Some would say…an abomination.

He won’t be held to account

He is too big to fail.

He is too popular and charismatic…

People will give him a pass…ah New Testament prophets get it wrong once in a while.

Guess what?

He perpetuated a man-centered, cross-less, narrative that is being pushed by many in the “signs and wonders”, “heaven to earth”, NAR hype-machine.

The charismatic (and I am a charismatic) ritualistic, “spiritual” service of worship and prophecy and experience is a denial of the true power of the Gospel….THE CROSS.  (For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.)

Now…let me give you an example of a “word” for 2017

Johnny Enlow says concerning 2017…

For clarity’s sake, what I am saying is that God is going to so bless America that for the next 30 years, at least, she will become progressively more beautiful in every way. This Reformation Glory Train is going to ride back and forth and up and down our whole nation and will be accompanied by millions of reformation angels as it travels. If Revival Glory produces “gold dust” as a sign and wonder, then Reformation Glory is going to produce “gold bars” equivalents as a sign and wonder.

In my old notebook, I wrote that 2017-2019 would be 3 years of great glory. I didn’t at that time even have 7 mountain language or a real understanding of Reformation, and so I lacked those descriptives back in 2004. However, I did write that in these years “healing will be the children’s bread”- meaning it would become very common and easy to obtain. I wrote, “the supernatural will be commonplace…angels will be easily visible…and translations and transportations in the spirit would be increasingly common,” as would new “amazing signs and wonders.”

What is an old narrative or wineskin? One that sees judgment, rapture, the antichrist, or the beast right around every corner. These are the early days of the kingdom age. A new era of renaissance is now firmly upon us. If you will plan and set your life around that reality you blue hairs (those over 50) can be the Joshua and Caleb’s of today. Joshua and Caleb were both over 80 when Israel crossed into the Promised Land. They were the two oldest men in Israel. If you will begin to think like them your bodies will begin to take the cues and your strength and health will be renewed.

For those from other nations, know that America becoming beautiful is only a piece of the puzzle. If you can rise high enough in the spirit and see the coming years you will note that the whole earth is becoming a beautiful garden… get on the Reformation Glory Train and ride prosperously. This is the age of restoration and the era of renaissance in the advanced knowledge of God.”



False…wrong…not true…same old same old.

Gold bricks? Angels easily visible?

New amazing signs and wonders?

If you can rise high enough (?)  you will see that the whole earth is becoming a beautiful garden?

A “prophet” expanding his narrative…his filter…NOT from the heart of God.

This stuff is popular. Guess what ?

It is no different than the “fake news” that is spread in various media outlets.

It is no different than the “reporting” of the media during the election cycle.

It is the same spirit.

Sensationalism.  Distortions. Magnifications. Lies.

The same root…money…popularity…and selling a narrative.  Forcing a filter to produce excitement in the readers/listeners and grooming followers.

I will say it…the spirit in the “prophetic” is the same spirit that is in the world.

Do I think Kris Vallotton or Johnny Enlow are purposeful liars ?

No. I really don’t. But…

I do think that they partake of the same delusional liberal/progressive spirit that drives the media machine.  Spin a tale large enough…and people will believe it.  That is the way of man.

In 2017, let’s reject the foolish prognostications and inflated expectations of man-centered, cross-less prophets.

Don’t listen to the voices that use the death of a “superstar” (whether it’s Prince, David Bowie, or George Michael) to illustrate their prophetic word.

Or someone who uses the Super Bowl half time show or score to explain what God is doing.

Or numbers 5777 or 777 or whatever.

Stop the insanity.  It is not God. It is man. Man. MAN.


After all of that…I have a word for you. Two words actually…

Simplicity and supremacy…

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” 2 Cor 11:3

“And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.”Col 1:18

The simplicity that is in Christ.  The supremacy of Christ.

Jesus Christ…firstborn from among the dead…without pretence or hypocrisy…the only answer for deception..the only answer for man.

Supreme Servant.

Simply God.

We need to return to those two messages (and they are one message).

We need to reject any message that inflates man and reduces Jesus Christ.

We need to speak out and question men and ministries that continually push a narrative and not Jesus Christ.

Guess what?

The simplicity that is in Christ and the supremacy of Christ meet at the Cross.

Out of that is birthed the answer to deception and beguilement and the answer to and for man.

That has never changed. It never will.

Let’s get back to the simple Gospel…getting people saved and healed…lets drop the (man-centered) foolish cries to takeover Hollywood or rule nations or …

Let’s return to making Jesus Christ supreme.  His will. His ways. His Person.

Give birth to a new vision of His majesty and supremacy and through that…let man and his messages and ways and lies…simply…die.

I will end with a word for the “prophets” of today.  Kris and Johnny ?  It’s from the Apostle Paul.

It starts like this…

“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus..”

NAR… Producers of Another Jesus, Another Gospel, and Another Commission

Flirting with another Jesus and another Gospel will produce another mission or commission..  Below are some quotes form the book Invading Babylon by Lance Wallnau and Bill Johnson. Contributions were made by Che Ahn, Patricia King, Alan Vincent and C. Peter Wagner. Accents in bold are mine.

But first….some comments.

The root to another Jesus (mystical, signs and wonders, lovey dovey, cash cow, etc…,) is unbelief.

The root to another Gospel (no wrath, no punishment, no judgment, no separation between God and man, man is not that bad, etc…,)  is unbelief.  (See Father-Son Theology a Systematic Theology for the New Apostolic Reformation by Harold Eberle)

The root to another Great Commission (salt preserves culture, invades Babylon, molds minds, doesn’t worry about conversions but disciple placement, and $$$ is the missing link to effectiveness) is unbelief.

Remember how the serpent added to what God had said…in the very beginning ?

Today, men (Christian leaders) are adding to what God said.

Unbelief in the nature of redemption, in the nature of God, and in the supremacy of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is spreading.

Complicity is sin.

Bill Johnson, Lance Wallnau, Che Ahn, Patricia King, Alan Vincent, C. Peter Wagner, Jonathan Welton, Harold Eberle, Martin Trench are all complicit in spreading unbelief and adding to what God has said.

The quotes…

As long as the Church thinks the purpose of the Great Commission is anything less than penetrating and occupying the mind molders of the nations in order to bring about a sustained influence that shapes the culture, we are asleep. The fields, our nations, are not only vulnerable to the enemy, but they are also being aggressively cultivated right under our noses.

We are salt. We slow down the decay of culture. We are also light, which means that we illuminate a pathway into a better future.

To be light to the world is to reflect the illuminating power of the coming age right in the midst of this one. It is to see the future and bring it into the present so that others can know what the coming Kingdom looks like.

God is waiting for us to access His presence, His counsel, and His insight so that we can apply Heaven’s solutions to earth and teach His ways by demonstrating solutions to problems. What Jesus demonstrated in healing human bodies is the same power that can transform nations.

The question in the minds of many who are bold enough to probe beneath the surface is: Why haven’t we seen more of the reformation that we’ve been talking about? In my personal reckoning, the season in which those of us who are charismatically inclined evangelicals began to put the Dominion Mandate front and center began in 1990, and it sharply accelerated after the turn of the century. We have been doing everything we know how to do to see our cities transformed. However, after 20 years we cannot point to a single city in America that has been reformed according to objective sociological measurements…

Reformation seems more elusive than we expected. Thoughtful people will naturally ask why. Are we doing something wrong? Is something missing? What changes do we need to make? There are certainly many answers to these questions. The particular missing piece that I want to address in this chapter is money. I repeat, money! Trust me. We will not see measureable, sustained transformation of our cities or states or nations if those who are providing strategic leadership do not have access to large sums of money.

Satan virtually had his way over the human race until Jesus came. Jesus was called the “last Adam” because, through His death and resurrection, He turned things back around (see 1 Cor. 15: 20-28, 45). He came to seek and to save that which was lost. What was lost? The dominion over creation was lost because Adam forfeited it in the Garden of Eden. Jesus brought a new Kingdom, the Kingdom of God, which was to replace the perverse kingdom that satan had established. He came to reconcile the world back to Himself, and He assigned the ministry of reconciliation to us (see 2 Cor. 5: 18). Since then, it has been the responsibility of the people of God, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to regain the dominion that Adam was originally supposed to have. This is the Dominion Mandate.

Take, for instance, Jesus’ Great Commission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…” (Matt. 28: 19 NKJV). Previously many of us interpreted that to mean that we were to go into the nations in order to win as many souls as possible. Now, in light of the Dominion Mandate, we take it literally and see that we are to disciple nations as whole social units. Our task, then, is nothing less than reforming nations or people groups or social units of whatever scope. The values and blessings of God’s Kingdom must become characteristic of whole cities or states or countries. But practically speaking, part of the process of making that happen is to have large amounts of wealth available.

It is no wonder that Solomon said, “… Money answers everything” (Eccl. 10: 19). In light of this, we must take the steps necessary to see that wealth pours into the hands of Kingdom-minded and Kingdom-motivated leaders who can successfully move God’s people into sustained reformation of society. This is the will of God.

The answer to this must have to do with God’s timing. The wealth is undoubtedly there, but apparently we are not yet ready to receive it. For one thing, I believe that God was waiting for the biblical government of the Church to come into place under apostles and prophets. But this happened in 2001 when, at least according to my estimates, the Second Apostolic Age began. What more? I now think that in order for us to be able to handle the wealth responsibly, we need to recognize, identify, affirm, and encourage the ministry of apostles in the six non-religion mountains. They may or may not want to use the term “apostle,” but they will function in Kingdom-based leadership roles characterized by supernaturally empowered wisdom and authority. We have more work to do here.
