Steve Foss on Obama

Steve Foss, prophet of God?

Never heard of Steve Foss until this week, when I stumbled upon a few blogs who have posted his prophecy regarding Obama, which was apparently "known" to him in the year 2000, but just recently sent via email to a select few who have wasted no time spreading the news.

The problem with prophets is that they can sometimes get their own "feelings" woven into the prophecy. Also, just as in the days of Jonah, a prophet's vision will NOT come true if certain actions are taken. Today, too many people judge a prophet based on the actual outcome when actually, that should not be the case. But that's another topic altogether.

I do NOT take the prophecy of Steve Foss literally.

One of the things he stated is that Obama would win the election, and that Obama would be an ungodly president. Hogwash.

I have NEVER heard a prophet (of God) condemn anyone by name. The whole idea is very disturbing to me.

My feeling is that Foss possibly "wanted" to believe that Obama would be ungodly when possibly the vision indicated ungodliness in Washington, DC. None of us would be wrong to say that there is at least some ungodliness among our representatives in Washington.

It is also possible that the "ungodliness" had to do with us as a nation, or with future events that may come upon us on our own soil.

As you can see, there are many possible outcomes to a prophetic vision. Unfortunately, the one prophesying doesn't always understand the complexity of the possibilities.

I do not believe that God told Foss that Obama is ungodly. Period.

Meanwhile, fear mongering is still affecting the religious right, which keeps us from moving forward.

Bible 101: The opposite of fear is love. Love dispels all darkness and all fear. Now this love that can dispel fear and darkness is a deep love, a true love, and a righteous love.

What our nation needs now is just that - a righteous love for all of our American brothers and sisters, especially those in office.

Lesson learned?

Don't believe someone totally and whole-heartedly based solely on their claim to be a Christian. Take it with a grain of salt and wait for the outcome.


  1. I'm not going to judge this guy - I've never heard of him either. If he understands the scriptures then he should be trembling in fear - Prophets are not self-appointed. In fact I don't know of a single true prophet who sought the position.

    Matthew 7:15-20

    15"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

  2. Totally agree - those who are prophesying need to understand the gravity of what they're doing.

    I didn't mean to come across as judging him (Foss), but rather judging his prophecy. I certainly don't believe that he intentionally "got it wrong." Sometimes I get a little worked up when I'm writing (or ranting).

    Thanks for commenting!

  3. I am a former follower of Foss. The man is not a prophet of God. He is a disciple of Morris Cerullo, and he talks the talk but does not walk the walk. He is delusional and out to gain financially, no matter what it costs him or anyone else. I posted a couple of blogs about him myself, detailing my experiences in his group and the 22 years of spiritual and psychological bondage and pain I suffered because I was sucked into his mind-control group at a young age.

    Hopefully, others won't suffer as much as I did.

  4. Foss is totally right about Obama up until now! My the man repent or let another take his office.

    1. Hi Steve. In my opinion, Obama has followed the teachings of Jesus better than most presidents - even though he is fighting an uphill battle trying to help the poor and sick of this nation. What exactly would YOU have him repent of?

      Matthew 25:34-46
      Then the King will say to those at his right hand, `Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.' Then the righteous will answer him, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?' And the King will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.' Then he will say to those at his left hand, `Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.' Then they also will answer, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to thee?' Then he will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.' And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.
