Bob Jones was considered the leading Samuel-like prophet of the modern charismatic movement that started with Mike Bickle in the 1980s (IHOP). Before he died in 2014, he served as a spiritual mentor to Rick Joyner (MorningStar Ministries), Todd Bentley (Fresh Fire), etc. Here’s a video of Bob rambling about several of his laughable and nonsensical revelations. I don’t doubt he got information from a spirit, but I don’t think it was the Biblical Holy Spirit. It’s sad that people can be so deluded, willingly. This is what it looks like when people get away from evangelical Bible teaching…
10:16 – Bob said, “This is the year YOU MUST CAST OFF ALL RESTRAINTS.” Careful about the antinomian language, Bob. Proverbs 29:18, NIV: “Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint”; KJV: “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Bob says later that “restraints” are the religious spirits of judgment, criticism, debate, opinion, and legalism. Hmm, so we’re not allowed to think, Bob? Just go with your flow? Doesn’t agree with 1 Corinthians 14:29: “Let the prophets speak two or three, and LET THE OTHER JUDGE.” And a lot of this sun sign stuff sounds like astrology, I’m just sayin’. And what’s with the black glove? I can judge that too, Bob. God doesn’t tell me I can’t ask questions.
18:25 – Bob said, “I believe that we’re in a time of the gifts that are gonna break the curses of early death, and you’re gonna be young at 100 if you die. But I also believe these genetics will come to A YOUNGER RACE THAT WILL NEVER KNOW DEATH.” He is saying he believes some charismatics will be immortal in this life (the manifest sons of God delusion).
22:22 – Bob said, “You really need to watch your conversation. You should keep your conversation right. If your conversation is in a restaurant, or any place, EVEN IN A BAR, it’s alright to get loud if your conversation’s right.” Sure Bob, sure, whatever you say.
47:46 – Bob said, “THE COLOR ORANGE MEANS LOVE.” What? Not even Ira Milligan’s Understanding the Dreams You Dream says that, page 87: energy, danger, and power – not love. How’s love the Biblical meaning of orange? Pretty subjective, Bob. Lol.
55:55 – Bob said, “IT’S A TIME OF FREE GRACE.” As in the free grace theology of Charles Ryrie, Zane Hodges, and modern antinomians who reject lordship salvation preached by John MacArthur and the Puritans. Eck! In 57:22 he said, “Being an old Baptist, I believed in rapture.” So he admits to having a Baptist view of salvation. Well, there’s nothing left but antinomianism when you use the word “Baptist” and “free grace” in the same paragraph. It’s a false theology of salvation, folks. Bob Jones was a false prophet influenced by lying spirits! (1 Kings 22:22). Mike Bickle’s different though. He has a lordship salvation influence, a Ravenhill influence. And I’m not saying that 100% of Jones’ dreams and visions were false. I’m just saying that I don’t look at Bob Jones as the best example of prophetic ministry.
