The introduction1 atop his website reads,


But, once again, the self-appointed Master Prophet has been snagged in a false prophecy, and has demonstrated, again, that his prophecies cannot be trusted.

Beginning at 4:52 into a YouTube video titled, 2010 Powerful Prophecy with Master Prophet Bishop E. Bernard Jordan, Jordan sets a specific date for ears to hear and eyes to see the Lord:  

Get ready. Oh, the changes, the changes, the changes. It, it is, it is shifting, and the shift has already taken place in the air. Change. Change. And you will see the weather prophesying unto you by the 21st of March. You will feel, and hear Me, and see Me in the blowing of the wind. You will see Me and hear Me riding upon the wind. [December 31, 2009-January 1, 2010, http://tinyurl.com/2c3h8km , Part 2 of 4 {see below}] 

March 21, 2010 has come and gone. No one felt, heard, or saw the Lord blowing in the wind, nor did anyone see or hear the Lord riding on the wind. If E. Bernard Jordan’s followers would study their Bibles and listen to what God has to say, they would be followers of Jesus Christ instead of Jordan.  

Jesus told His disciples,

The days will come when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. They will say to you, “Look there! Look here!” Do not go away, and do not run after them. For just like the lightning, when it flashes out of one part of the sky, shines to the other part of the sky, so will the Son of Man be in His day (Luke 17:22-24).

See to it that you are not misled; for many will come in My name, saying, “I am He,” and, “The time is near.” Do not go after them (Luke 21:8). 

Then if anyone says to you, “Behold, here is the Christ,” or “There He is,” do not believe him. For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. Behold, I have told you in advance. So if they say to you, “Behold, He is in the wilderness,” do not go out, or, “Behold, He is in the inner rooms,” do not believe them. For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be (Matthew 24:23-27).

Jesus ascended into heaven over 2,000 years ago. Since then, many have come in His name and prophesied His return. All have been wrong. In the above Scriptures, Jesus placed emphasis on avoiding those who have claimed to see Him or that He has returned: do not run after them… do not go after them… do not believe him… do not believe them.

Further, Jesus is in heaven seated at the right hand of the Father. He does not make back-and-forth trips from heaven to earth and conduct one-on-one visitations. He does not appear inside bedrooms or buildings, or outside in a football stadium or a Benny Hinn crusade. An image of Jesus does not appear in a cloud, on a wall, or on a grilled-cheese sandwich. Jesus was received into heaven and will remain in heaven until His return:

But the things which God announced beforehand by the mouth of all the prophets, that His Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled. Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, WHOM HEAVEN MUST RECEIVE until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time (Acts 3:18-21, emp. added).

When Jesus appears at His return, every eye will see Him, not just a select few:

Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen. “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation 1:7-8). 

Even if all of E. Bernard Jordan’s prophecies were 100% correct , he would still be a false prophet, due to the fact that he claims to be “God,” and that he is leading people to a false god (review this short YouTube video at http://tinyurl.com/2636zvz [see below] , then compare what Jordan says with what God has already said in Deuteronomy chapter 13 and Isaiah chapter 43).

When it comes to false prophets, God’s written word is crystal clear:

Thus says the Lord GOD, “Woe to the foolish prophets who are following their own spirit and have seen nothing.” –Ezekiel 13:3  

Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, “Because you have spoken falsehood and seen a lie, therefore behold, I am against you,” declares the Lord GOD (Ezekiel 13:8).

“Behold, I am against the prophets,” declares the LORD, “who use their tongues and declare, ‘The Lord declares.’ “Behold, I am against those who have prophesied false dreams,” declares the LORD, “and related them and led My people astray by their falsehoods and reckless boasting; yet I did not send them or command them, nor do they furnish this people the slightest benefit,” declares the LORD (Jeremiah 23:31-32).

E. Bernard Jordan claims to be “YOUR MOST TRUSTED NAME IN PROPHECY,” but in reality, he is a master false prophet.
