Four years ago, a pastor in California prophesied that Kanye West would become a Christian. Bear in mind that at the time West’s life was a total mess; he was a lost and broken man.
Bolz spoke to Fox News about his Kanye West prophecy and also shared some other fascinating insights into his perspective on prophecy and what he sees coming down the line for this nation.
Regarding his word for West, who at the time had been hospitalized after suffering a breakdown, Bolz publicly declared, “We aren’t ready for the coming influx of new Christians…God showed me Kanye West as a prophet and worship leader in Christianity.”
The word proved to be spot on as West very publicly spoke out about his dramatic conversion and then dropped the album Jesus Is King. Suffice to say that quite literally the name of Jesus is on a lot more peoples’ lips because of that record alone!
Bolz also talked about his view on the prophetic and more specifically acknowledged that a lot of people don’t have a positive view on it, humorously comparing it to the bad guys in a zombie film and stating that he’s trying to, “Rebrand and dignify what it is to walk with God.”
He went on to define prophecy in a language that is also very understandable to the laymen when he told Fox that, “Prophecy is the ability to connect to the God of the Bible in real-time.” Further explaining, that it’s about “actually having an encounter with [God’s] heart.”
Bolz wasn’t done there either and felt like he had a word for Trump and his presidency.
“I felt like Trump was going to be president twice and that he would have an encounter in his second term, more of an encounter for God and who he is and for his family,” Bolz said.
“There’s going to be more boldness in the second term and it’s going to be disruptive, but I think it’s helpful because there’s so many systems in place that are old and tired, and need to be knocked down.”
He went into more detail as well by saying that he felt that Trump’s presidency will be marked by three things: immigration, finances and tax issues. He felt that although some of his decisions would be met with protest in the long term they would be great for this nation.
