It would serve us well to remember that in the year 2000 Brother Stair told us that if he were to live till 2020 that it would mean that ‘all his words were a lie, a damn lie.’ [Here we can see one reason God made him live till 2021 – so that it would be clear he’s a liar]
Here we are now in 2020 and Brother Stair is still going on like nothing has happened or was said. Just as he has done with his three prominent Prophecy’s (1987, 2001, 2007) that he still claims have all come to pass or are coming to pass. While the truth is they are far out of their proclaimed date scope. The 1987 Prophecy for example was to take place before 1987 ended – listen closely. This is why Bro Stair changed to calling it The 1987 Prophecy for many years – to get another year out of it. That didn’t help. Eventually, he just ignored that he proclaimed an expiration date on it and pushed it as having come to pass.
Well, the time for his prophecies has certainly come to pass and gone past – way past. While nothing came about according to what and when they were prophesied to have been; like it was said to have been. Still, they are sold that they came about just as Brother Stair said they would. Yet we are the ones lambasted for not remembering. Bro Stair doesn’t really want us to remember – he just wants to beat us up for something – for anything. And since he gets his people dazed and confused so they cannot respond the way he wants, he beats them for not remembering.
Though on the other hand, to wiggle out of any failure on his part, Brother Stair also says that he has never prophesied anything. How then is he a prophet? To that, he claims I’m not a prophesying prophet. Then now is he a prophet? If that doesn’t work he says that he’s never said anything “Thus saith the Lord”. Yet he tells us that every word from his mouth is from the Throne of God. How is that not the same thing?
Yea, the Lord Saith…
Yet! Brother Stair has indeed said “Saith the Lord” and “yea the word of the Lord would say…”, “Yea, I the Almighty God have spoken…”, “I the Almighty God am now speaking it…”. He’s not quoting the Bible there, he’s giving a prophecy and pronounces calamity and destruction under the seal of “saith the Lord” (see 2007 Prophecy).
Brother Stair says this five times in his 2001 Prophecy. No less than nine times in his 1987/1988 Prophecy and even more times it is said in other ways inferring the same thing. Like proclaiming it as “I the Lord thy God have spoken it.” in the 2001 Prophecy.
In 2003 he prophecied that the DOW would never go above 10,000.
Again in Oct 2008 (right after the stock market and the housing bubble crash) he stepped into the Dining Hall and said, “Thus saith the Lord, The Stock Market will never go above 10,000 again.”
Not enough? Let’s take a look at Bro Stair’s Overcomer Ministry website (.overcomerministry.com) where the front page says this,
“Therefore, son of man, speak unto the house of Israel, and say unto them,
Thus saith the Lord GOD….”
……..And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying………
The Overcomer website is right there declaring that what Brother Stair says in his three listed prophecy’s is “Thus saith the Lord GOD”. You don’t have to take our word for it, take theirs if you must. Since Brother Stair claims to be this Son of Man that God is telling to speak, he is told to speak “thus saith the Lord God”. Brother Stair would, therefore, be disobeying that word from God by saying he’s not said anything “thus saith the Lord”. But disobedience to God has never stopped him before.
“Wherein Have I Lied?”
So where is Brother Stair lying? In saying that he’s this Seventh Angel Messenger and the Son of Man who is giving these three prophecies, as his website declares, “Thus saith the Lord GOD….”?
Or when he says he’s never said anything “Thus saith the Lord”?
Or when he says he’s “never prophesied anything. I’m not a prophesying prophet”? [the same non-prophesying prophet who has three of his major prophecy’s listed on his website]
So wherein has Brother Stair lied? In one, or in the other – or in all! ??? You decide.
And these lies are just on this one topic of Thus saith the Lord, we’re not even looking at the lies told in these prophecies or any of his other statements. Wherein hasn’t Brother Stair lied is the real question.
“Behold, I am against the prophets,” declares the LORD, “who use their tongues and declare, ‘The Lord declares.’ (Jer 23:31 NASB)
God may have said it clearer than in Jeremiah when He said it in Ezekiel 13:
4 Your prophets, Israel, are like jackals [foxes KJV] among ruins. 5 You have not gone up to the breaches in the wall to repair it for the people of Israel so that it will stand firm in the battle on the day of the Lord. 6 Their visions are false and their divinations a lie. Even though the Lord has not sent them, they say, “The Lord declares,” and expect Him to fulfill their words. 7 Have you not seen false visions and uttered lying divinations when you say, “The Lord declares,” though I have not spoken? (Eze 13:4-7 NIV)
