Michael Brown asked Jennifer about her greatest concerns and encouragements concerning current trends in the charismatic movement. LeClaire said that honestly her greatest concerns have to do with some camps in the movement. She spoke against the goofy stuff going on, people using the prophetic for merchandising, people pimping for money, and people giving false prophetic utterances. LeClaire said all of that greatly concerns her.
She then said God spoke into her heart about a year ago concerning those things, and told her to speak directly into it. LeClaire said God told her to operate in the true prophetic and to model integrity. LeClaire has not followed the supposed directions God gave her. You can listen to that segment of the interview below.
LeClaire is guilty of the rankest of hypocrisy. I’ll give an example of blatant merchandising and pimping first, and then an example of the goofy.
In November of 2016 she claimed God gave her an urgent prophecy about Angels of the Abundant Harvest. She stated the prophecy was urgent, profound, and the body of Christ needed to hear it. Yet in order to hear the full prophecy, you had to purchase the book.
Posting things online is easy. If someone really believes God has an urgent message for the church, shouldn’t they just post the entire thing online, for free, that way most everyone can read and receive such an urgent word? The fact that you had to fork over money in order to receive the full urgent word from God proves LeClaire is involved in rank hypocrisy, and is engaged in prophetic merchandising and pimping, even though she claims God told her to speak against it. You can read the full account of her hypocrisy here.
Even though LeClaire claims God told her to speak against goofy things, she engages in really goofy things. On February 23, 2017 she wrote an article for Charisma titled When the Sneaky Squid Spirit Starts Stalking You.
There is nothing in the bible about a Sneaky Squid Spirit capable of stalking you. Some may suggest it’s valid because the bible doesn’t speak against such a thing. If that is the litmus test for what’s real concerning spiritual matters, then what’s to stop someone from saying there is a rainbow colored owl named Steve who wants to fill your mind with songs by Barry Manilow and Miley Cyrus?
Jennifer LeClaire is a goofy, merchandising, prophetic pimp of the highest order. She’s not the face of some shadowy minor segment in the charismatic movement. She’s literally a front and center influential face in the movement because she’s the senior editor of Charisma magazine.
People justifying this nonsense need a set of fresh eyes, and they need to repent. This isn’t a small percentage of people in the movement only brought into the light by bored bloggers. This is literally the public face of the movement. People should be ashamed of themselves for overlooking or trying to normalize this cancer that’s attempting to identify with Christianity.
