Back in September, Kent Christmas shared some very clear and specific prophecies that would come to pass in the last few months of 2023. The question now is whether one of these prophecies has already been fulfilled.
One of the specific prophecies that Christmas spoke over was that God was going to do something to shake up Congress.
“I’m going to so confuse the so-called experts,” Christmas said. “I’m going to show up in places nobody thought that I could show up. ‘Before I’m done,’ says the Lord, ‘They will allow a Spirit-filled, Holy Ghost, tongue-talking preacher to open Congress.'”
With the election of Mike Johnson as Speaker of the House, we may ask if this prophecy has or will come to pass with a Bible-believing Christian as himself in this position. Johnson has not been ashamed of his faith and has made no attempts to hide it. Instead, he’s put himself at the forefront of the political world as an advocate for the gospel.
“I don’t believe there are any coincidences in a matter like this,” Johnson said to Congress. “I believe that Scripture and the Bible is very clear that God is the one that raises up those in authority. He raised up each of you, all of us. And I believe God has ordained and allowed each one of us to be brought here for this specific moment and this time. This is my belief.”
Johnson also encouraged members of Congress to live and use the gifts that they’ve been given by God as a way to serve the fellow citizens of America.
This outright statement in support of the gospel has left the liberal-leaning media outlets up in a fury, including former White House press secretary Jen Psaki, according to Fox News. The election of Johnson has, if nothing else, confused those who consider themselves experts.
The rest of Christmas’ prophecy spoke directly to the glory of God and how the Holy Spirit would be made manifest in Congress in such a way that it would overwhelming.
“And God says that ‘as My servant begins to pray, that as it was in the days of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln…the glory is going to begin to settle in the chambers, that men who truly didn’t believe in Me, are going to begin to say, “I was wrong; what is this?” And my servant will stand up as my servant did on the day of Pentecost, and he will say, “This is that.”‘”
Johnson has already been prayed over very publicly with his nomination as Speaker of the House. Back in the summer he also shared about his time of prayer with Christians Engaged which seeks to bring the light of the gospel into the world through means of political engagement across America.
With time, we will be able to see clearly if Mike Johnson’s nomination as Speaker of the House was the fulfillment or the beginning of the fulfillment of Kent Christmas’ powerful prophetic word.
