Break out your tinfoil hats boys and girls; this conspiracy has everything. It’s got the Illuminati, weather control, Democrats and liberals, and prophetic words from God.

Let me introduce you to Mark Taylor the “firefighter prophet.” Taylor is a former fireman who retired and made a name for himself by claiming he had a prophetic vision that Donald Trump would become President in 2011. I’m always skeptical about dramatic testimonies and spectacular claims because good Christian people have been bamboozled by hucksters with wild claims before. I’d like to see some documentation or corroboration that he told people about these prophetic messages back in 2011.

Needless to say, he is a popular and rising star in Fundagelical circles because of his self-proclaimed title of prophet. Who knew that prophets are also conspiracy nuts?

Taylor went on the MC Files and claimed that after a little chat with God, God revealed that hurricane Maria, the hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico, was part of a plot to change the political landscape of Florida.

“What the Lord showed me is that there is a plan in place to try to steal Florida and Texas over to blue, Yes, we control the weather a lot of times, guys. We can generate these storms … If you’ll notice, right after the hurricane hit down in Puerto Rico and they had that big scandal with the mayor down there and all that stuff. They were trying to move half a million Puerto Ricans into Florida as a humanitarian effort. Give me a break! It was not a humanitarian effort, guys. That’s why they were holding the food up—that’s why the mayor was holding the food up—so they could justify sending them to Florida. They had plenty of supplies down there; they wouldn’t release them. It was because they’re trying to turn Florida blue.”

Taylor believes that “We” can control the weather. Who is “we”? Taylor is referencing his previous statements that the Illuminati control the weather. So, the deep state in conjunction with the Illuminati sent a hurricane to Puerto Rico to create a crisis and move people from Puerto Rico to Florida to make it a Democrat state.

Where do you start with this mess? The racism? The lack of proof? The total lack of humanity and compassion towards people who had their lives destroyed?

Fundagelicals eat this stuff up. It confirms their bias against liberals and Democrats; it confirms their twisted worldview of satanic conspiracies and conspiracy groups; it allows them to deny humanitarian aid to people in need. What’s not to like?

Was there any evidence offered to support this wild conspiracy claim? The only evidence offered is the claim that God told Mark Taylor it’s true. That’s it. A self-proclaimed prophet claims God told him.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought prophets called people back to God. They called people to repentance and to return to God. I don’t remember any prophets in the Bible spreading conspiracy theories. What good does this revelation from Mark Taylor serve? Does it promote the worship of God? Does it call people to repentance? No, it promotes a twisted, extremist agenda.

This so-called revelation doesn’t unite people around God; it divides people into political camps. The writer of 2 Timothy said it this way, “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.” (2 Tim 4:3)  Fundagelicals want to hear how liberals and Democrats are conspiring against them. In Mark Taylor, they have found a false prophet who spins stories that tell them what they want to hear. He paints his stories with a thin veneer of “God told me,” and that’s good enough for Fundagelicals. I, on the other hand, don’t buy it.  Fundagelicals have disconnected their brains and chose to believe in ignorance what they want to believe. They call it faith. God gave us the gift of reason, and He expects us to use it. God doesn’t call us to blind faith; instead, he calls us to engage the claims made by self-proclaimed prophets. See God told me, “Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1) I’m with the Apostle Thomas until I see some real evidence, I doubt it.
