Trump prophet Jeremiah Johnson who predicted 2020 victory ends ministry
Jeremiah Johnson, an evangelical Christian who predicted that former President TrumpDonald TrumpTim Scott takes in .3 million in third quarterTrump calls into Take Back Virginia Rally to hype YoungkinOvernight Defense & National Security — Partisan extremism poses 'growing problem' among veterans MORE would win reelection in 2020, is ending his ministry.
Johnson said he did not make the decision lightly, writing in a Facebook post that he ended Jeremiah Johnson Ministries “after much prayer and the clear direction of the Lord," according to The Washington Post. The post has since been deleted.
The move comes after Johnson faced backlash from fellow evangelicals after he apologized for prophesying that Trump would win the 2020 election, according to the newspaper.
The move also comes in the middle of a YouTube series titled “I Was Wrong,” during which he stated that the country must come together and not dwell on the 2020 election.
“I believe that it is a tremendous mistake to take the next four years to argue and debate and cause division and grow more prideful talking about how we think the election was taken from Donald Trump. I actually believe we need to take the next four years and humble ourselves,” Johnson said in a video in the series.
“We need to recognize that God is up to something far greater in the prophetic, charismatic movement that I believe is beyond what many even recognize. We need to stop, we need to take a breather and we need to come back to a place where we can begin to dialogue about these issues rather than be so triggered,” he added.
Following the announcement, Johnson has deleted all social media accounts associated with his ministry and has started a new website called The Altar Global.
“Our mission according to Revelation 22:17 is to help prepare the Bride of Christ for the return of our glorious Bridegroom King Jesus. We have been instructed to prepare an Altar for the Wedding day,” the website says.
The organization is going to host a yearlong program for students so they can learn “the lifestyle of an end-time messenger and the return of the Lord.”
Johnson in 2015 was one of the first evangelicals to take Trump's candidacy seriously and build a following online, according to an article from The New York Times, the Post reported.
Throughout his presidency and the 2020 election, Trump maintained a high level of support among evangelical Christians. In October, less than a month before the Nov. 3 election, Trump held the support of 78 percent of white Evangelicals, according to a poll from the Pew Research Center.
Ministry Leaders Apologize for Prophesying Trump Win
Several church leaders issued apologies last week for prophecies they made that Trump would win the 2020 presidential election. These leaders include Bethel’s Kris Vallotten, R. Loren Sanford, and Jeremiah Johnson—the latter of whom was entirely unprepared for the vitriol he has received in response to his apology.
“Over the last 72 hours, I have received multiple death threats and thousands upon thousands of emails from Christians saying the nastiest and most vulgar things I have ever heard toward my family and ministry,” said Jeremiah Johnson in a Facebook post published yesterday. “I have been labeled a coward, sellout, a traitor to the Holy Spirit, and cussed out at least 500 times. We have lost ministry partners every hour and counting.”
Johnson said that he did expect some people to attack him for his apology, but he never anticipated the hostility people have directed at him:
After publicly repenting on January 7th, I fully expected to be called a false prophet etc in some circles but I could have never dreamed in my wildest imagination that so much satanic attack and witchcraft would come from charismatic/prophetic people. I have been flabbergasted at the barrage of continued conspiracy theories being sent every minute our way and the pure hatred being unleashed.
To my great heartache, I’m convinced parts of the prophetic/charismatic movement are far SICKER than I could have ever dreamed of. I truthfully never realized how absolutely triggered and ballistic thousands and thousands of saints get about Donald Trump. It’s terrifying! It’s full of idolatry!
Jeremiah Johnson Says He Is ‘deeply sorry’
Jeremiah Johnson is the founder of Heart of the Father Ministry and is an “end time messenger” at Jeremiah Johnson Ministries. In a Nov. 7 Facebook post, Johnson said he was waiting for the election results to be finally determined in January. He seemed to critique people accusing him at that time of making a false prophecy when he said that critics of prophets should consider whether they should have voted for a candidate who supports policies that dishonor God.
After being interrupted by the violent riots that took place at the Capitol Wednesday, Congress certified Joe Biden’s election as president early Thursday morning. That same day, Johnson published a public apology for incorrectly prophesying that Donald Trump would win. Said Johnson,
First, I would like to repent for inaccurately prophesying that Donald Trump would win a second term as the President of the United States. I refuse to blame the saints and say, “It didn’t come to pass because they did not pray enough.” Nor will I proclaim, “Donald Trump actually won, so I was right, but now it has been stolen from him.” I believe the first statement seeks to alleviate the prophetic messenger from the responsibility of what he prophesied, and the second statement is filled with potential pride and an unwillingness to humble himself and admit he was wrong.
Johnson expressed remorse for potentially hurting people’s faith in God by his inaccurate prediction:
I want to go on record: “I was wrong, I am deeply sorry, and I ask for your forgiveness.” I specifically want to apologize to any believer in whom I have now caused potential doubt concerning the voice of God and His ability to speak to His people. As a human being, I missed what God was saying; however, rest assured, God Himself is NOT a liar and His written Word should always be the foundation and source of our lives as Christians.
Johnson went on to explain at length his “prophetic journey” with Donald Trump. In his conclusion, he said, “A humbling has come and is coming to the American Church like never before. How we choose to respond to this correction and judgment from the Lord will determine many outcomes in the years ahead…May humility and repentance be our resolve in the days ahead.”

Self-styled evangelical prophet Jeremiah Johnson apologizes for predicting Trump's re-election and says he's dismantling his ministry
- Evangelist Jeremiah Johnson apologized for prophesying that Trump would be re-elected in 2021.
- Johnson previously said in a lengthy prophecy that "God had chosen Trump."
- Johnson broke with other evangelicals, who still believe that a miraculous reversal of the 2020 election results will happen.
Self-described prophet Jeremiah Johnson has publicly apologized for saying that Trump would be re-elected president in 2020.
The prominent evangelical leader announced in a now-deleted open letter to his Facebook followers that he was shutting down his ministry, "Jeremiah Johnson Ministries," and that he would be removing all the ministry's social media handles over the next week.
In a YouTube video titled "I Was Wrong," Johnson apologized for his inaccurate predictions and for his repeated claims that Trump would be re-elected against all odds.
"I believe that it is a tremendous mistake to take the next four years to argue and debate and cause division and grow more prideful talking about how we think the election was taken from Donald Trump. I actually believe we need to take the next four years and humble ourselves," he said in the video.
Johnson said as well in the video that fellow evangelical Christians "need to recognize that God is up to something far greater in the prophetic, charismatic movement."
"We need to stop, we need to take a breather, and we need to come back to a place where we can begin to dialogue about these issues rather than be so triggered," he said.
Johnson's change of heart is surprising, as he used to be one of the former president's staunchest supporters. In 2015, he predicted that Trump would win, as he had been "chosen" by God. He did so again in 2020.
According to Newsweek, Johnson said he had made this decision "after much prayer and the clear direction of the Lord."
In doing so, Johnson has broken with other evangelical leaders, some of whom still claim that there will be a miraculous reversal of the 2020 Biden presidential win.
According to a Politico article, televangelists like California Pentecostal pastor Johnny Enlow still claim that the "January 2020 inauguration date doesn't really mean anything." Enlow goes on to say in a YouTube video that more than 100 "credible" Christian prophets were continuing to back Trump, prophesying his return to power.
Enlow is among many charismatic, prophetic Christians who also believe deeply that Trump is still president or will ascend to power again, The Washington Post reported.
According to the Religion News Service, Johnson will be starting a new ministry called "The Altar Global." As part of this new ministry, Johnson will no longer offer "prophetic commentary" but will instead help prepare the world for the "end times."
The ministry's website says that The Altar Global will "prepare the Bride of Christ for the return of our glorious Bridegroom King Jesus," doing so through a one-year intensive program in North Carolina, as well as through local and national conferences.
Evangelical 'Prophet' Ends Ministry After Apologizing for Predicting Trump's Re-Election
A prominent evangelical Christian "prophet" has decided to shutter his ministry after apologizing for incorrectly predicting that former President Donald Trump would be re-elected in the 2020 election.
Jeremiah Johnson, who founded Jeremiah Johnson Ministries, made the announcement via his public Facebook page on Monday after receiving overwhelmingly negative feedback from followers after he apologized for his inaccurate prophecy. The Christian minister had apologized in a YouTube series he titled "I Was Wrong," Religion News Service first reported.
"After much prayer and the clear direction of the Lord, we are officially terminating, 'Jeremiah Johnson Ministries.' All of our social media accounts will be deleted over the next week. We fully understand what a shock this will be to many on numerous levels," Johnson wrote in an open letter to his followers posted to Facebook.
Johnson asserted that he is not "discouraged" and does not plan to draw back from his "calling." Instead, the evangelical minister plans to form a new movement called The Altar Global, which he described as "a complete shift" and not just a "name or brand change." In one video of the "I Was Wrong" series, Johnson said he'd received "90 percent negative" feedback from thousands of his subscribers and followers.
The evangelical figure, who has been dubbed a "Trump prophet," first apologized on January 7—the day after the violent attack on the U.S. Capitol by the former president's supporters. In that message, Johnson described some elements within the Christian prophetic movement as "deeply sick."
"I believe that this election cycle has revealed how desperately we need reformation in the prophetic movement," Johnson later said in a video posted in early February. "I have serious concerns for the charismatic-prophetic world that if we do not wake up, if we do not humble ourselves, there is greater judgment to come."
Newsweek reached out to Johnson for further comment but did not immediately receive a response.
White evangelical Christians were a key base of support for Trump from his 2016 presidential campaign to the end of his presidency. About 8 in 10 white evangelicals said they backed Trump in 2016, according to exit polls at the time. The results were similar in 2020, with exit polls showing that between 76 percent and 81 percent of white evangelicals supported the former president over President Joe Biden. Many prominent evangelical leaders—such as Franklin Graham—went on to promote Trump's unfounded claims that the election was stolen by Biden and the Democrats.
While most white evangelicals supported Trump, a vocal minority of Christians and specifically Christian evangelicals have voiced strong opposition to the former president. A group of evangelical Christian leaders led by Pastor Doug Pagitt, the leader of the evangelical progressive group Vote Common Good, released an open letter last month condemning the "heresy of Christian nationalism," which they pointed to as a key ideology leading to the January 6 attack on the Capitol. The letter urged "all pastors, ministers, and priests to boldly make it clear that a commitment to Jesus Christ is incompatible with calls to violence, support of white Christian nationalism, conspiracy theories, and all religious and racial prejudice."

Jeremiah Johnson dumps ministry name for new one in fallout from false Trump prophesy
Two months after publicly apologizing for inaccurately predicting former President Donald Trump would win a second term, Jeremiah Johnson says he’s dumping his “Jeremiah Johnson Ministries” brand for a new one called “The Altar Global” that will be in line with a new direction God is taking his ministry.
“After much prayer and the clear direction of the Lord, we are officially terminating, ‘Jeremiah Johnson Ministries.’ All of our social media accounts will be deleted over the next week,” Johnson announced in a letter to his followers on Facebook Monday.
Johnson’s Jeremiah Johnson Ministries website is already redirecting his fans to The Altar Global, which bears a footnote that it is “formally Jeremiah Johnson Ministries,” which began taking shape in 2010.
Shortly after he graduated from Southeastern University with a bachelor's degree in Church Ministries that year, Johnson planted Heart of the Father Ministry in Lakeland, Florida. That ministry flourished under his leadership until he moved with his family and staff to Charlotte, North Carolina, to oversee "Jeremiah Johnson Ministries" in 2020.
Johnson, who promoted himself on his old ministry website as having the “privilege of walking in a strong prophetic anointing since he was a little boy,” admitted to falsely prophesying that Trump would win a second term. His decision to apologize prompted death threats, including from some Christians who believe the 2020 election was stolen from Trump.
“I have received multiple death threats and thousands upon thousands of emails from Christians saying the nastiest and most vulgar things I have ever heard toward my family and ministry. I have been labeled a coward, sellout, a traitor to the Holy Spirit, and cussed out at least 500 times. We have lost ministry partners every hour and counting,” Johnson revealed in January.
“I have been flabbergasted at the barrage of continued conspiracy theories being sent every minute our way and the pure hatred being unleashed. To my great heartache, I’m convinced parts of the prophetic/charismatic movement are far SICKER than I could have ever dreamed of,” he explained. “I truthfully never realized how absolutely triggered and ballistic thousands and thousands of saints get about Donald Trump. It’s terrifying! It’s full of idolatry! If I helped to prop up this ideology concerning him, I will need to repent again and stir up even more hell.”
Last month, he announced the suspension of his online ministry after a visitation from God. And now he says he has a new vision.
In his letter Monday, Johnson insisted that adopting a new name for his ministry isn’t simply a rebranding but a decision to “embrace the power of the Cross into this new season” and step away from commentary on politics.
“I am not discouraged nor am I drawing back from my calling. Quite the opposite. I feel God is launching me, my family, and our ministry team further into His purpose for us. In response to God’s gracious correction, refinement, and empowerment, I’m choosing to refocus my gaze upon Jesus and the eternal realities of His Kingdom like never before.
"For many years, I offered commentary on various political and world events. But now, I am shifting my attention to the preparation of the Bride for the return of our Bridegroom. I will be turning my attention away from social media in order to focus on what God requires of me. Yet I am thrilled to commission our incredible staff to run with, 'The Altar Global' on social media,” Johnson explained.
“This is not a name or brand change but rather a complete shift of our ministry’s identity and focus. It requires a gigantic leap of faith for our team to embrace this mandate from God. We are hopeful, terrified and excited about what God is leading us into. Our vision and mission according to Revelation 22:17 is to help prepare the global bride of Christ for the return of our glorious bridegroom, King Jesus. We have been instructed to build an altar to help this generation get ready for the great wedding day,” he added.
