Sigh – A big one.
I’ve put this off for two days, so let’s just get on with it and be done. Shall we?
This is a video in which Cindy Jacobs gives a prophetic word to her pray-ers at theCall Sacramento earlier this month which seems to have caused God to shut down “human trafficking” on Craigslist. I found the article Tuesday on Right Wing Watch here.
Here is their clip and transcription follows –
RWW’s transcription (Cindy Jacobs speaking)
At one point there was a whole section on fighting human trafficking, sex trafficking, repenting of involvements in pornography and so forth and our friend Nancy Alcorn had her girls up who they had rescued from prostitution and so many things, some had actually been trafficked, been captured. And as we prayed there was a section where these girls were asked to go back, away from the platform, there was a cross, a big cross set up, and they kneeled down and began to pray and I gave them a prophecy and I said “could it be that even right now, as we speak, that that God, the just God, wants to give you a sign that he is going to break the back of sex trafficking.”
And so they cried out for freedom and they cried out and asked God to do that and right after that we received word that Craigslist was going to begin to censor some of the things that were coming over their list concerning pornography and adult content. And we just felt it was a huge victory.
Yes, I’ve verified that Jacobs was at theCall Sacramento.
Craigslist has shut down its controversial “Adult Services” section — by replacing the link to that section with the word “censored” written in bold letters on a black background, as you can see for yourself by clicking to its flagship San Francisco website.
Craigslist is the online classified ads service, launched in 1995 by entrepreneur Craig Newmark. It maintains online communities in numerous cities, featuring free classified advertisements to consumers. It makes money by selling paid ads for jobs and apartments.
The self-censoring appears to be in response to this letter from attorneys general in 18 U.S. states to Newmark and Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster. The AGs insisted that Craigslist “immediately take down” the Adult Services section. Here’s why, according to an excerpt from the AGs’ letter:
In our view, the company should take immediate action to end the misery for the women and children who may be exploited and victimized by these ads. Because craigslist cannot, or will not, adequately screen these ads, it should stop accepting them altogether and shut down the Adult Services section.
Steve Jones, a professor of communication at the University of Illinois in Chicago who has studied Internet culture, told the AP that if Craigslist has left the adult services business for good, it won’t likely diminish the online market for sex acts. The business will likely shift to other adult sites, perhaps based outside the United States. “I bet there are people today who are registering domain names and saying: ‘Business opportunity for me,'” he said. (emphasis mine)
This, my friends, is a great example of false prophecy and NAR dominionism in action. This is their false gospel message in which there is no personal repentance required and no call for that repentance. There is however, a lot of impressive sounding words, supposed repenting on the behalf of others, but no call to the Father for those involved in sin to repent. Just a claim that He will change the situation. The false prophetic movement believes one can make a declaration straight out of their head and even call it a prophecy and God will have to act on it. This is because they believe they have the same authority and anointing as Jesus Christ. These “prophecies” are not according to God’s will, but according to their will.
Cindy Jacobs is all about societal transformation. No situation changes unless the heart of the person involved is changed. There must be repentance. A person must come to the place where they recognize their sin and their need of a saviour. For without this they are forever lost. And all that looove, all those good sounding words and warm fuzzies will not mean a thing the day they stand face to face with God.
John the Baptist stated “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” From John 1:29
Now, don’t get me wrong. The decision Craigslist made was a very good one indeed and I applaud them. And I applaud those who came forward to put pressure on them to do what is right. However, it was an executive decision in which Craigslist heeded the pressure put on them by 18 State Attorneys General. What CEO in his right mind would not? And there is hope that the women and children who could have been hurt by those ads will not be. Maybe some will be saved the horror. This is the societal side of the situation.
However, there is a Christian side to look at here, as this woman, Cindy Jacobs claims to be a prophet of God. There has been no repentance of those who put up those kinds of ads, those who are involved in human trafficking who use women and children to their own gain. Preventing sin or “societal transformation” is not bringing about repentance. But this is the plan of the NAR which is to take over sections of America, maybe the world, and bring about ways to control the behavior of America’s people. This will be accomplished through their “prophets and apostles” and their laws, not repentance. (Excuse the digress.)
Back to my point: Most bars close between 2 am and 6 am and during those hours it is illegal to serve alcoholic beverages to anyone. However, it is not illegal to drink during those hours in your own home. And those who frequent the bars – I am talking bar flies here – do not have a change of heart, are not repentant because they can’t drink at their bar. They are just sober and thirsty for more, waiting for the time to come and the doors will be open to them. So, because there has been no repentance on the part of human/sex traffickers, they will simply take their business and their sin elsewhere, thirsty for more as other doors open to them. As the wise man quoted in Technology Live article, they will see a business opportunity. Nothing has changed in the great scheme of human trafficking as this false prophet has claimed. The only thing different is the geography of the same sin. The back of sex trafficking as Jacobs prophesied is not broken, but strong as always.
May God protect the innocent and the unsuspecting from the horror that is to come on them. The ways of man are evil. God help us reach the lost.
