Chris Rosebrough recently reviewed a bizarre prophecy on his program ‘Fighting for the Faith’. The prophecy was given by Belinda Williams, supposedly an emerging Prophetic voice from South African and founder of Prophetic Edge Ministries – in reality yet another false prophet who rides on the coat tails of other so-called ‘apostolic and prophetic’ frauds. You can also watch Chris Rosebrough’s YouTube review here:
What is interesting about Williams’ attempt at refutation is her very stereotypical NAR response to shut down critics and bolster her cultic status as ‘prophet’. These are the same arguments and scripture twists we’ve heard from NARpostles Benny Hinn, Brian Houston, Phil Pringle, Kong Hee, Kenneth Copeland, Todd Bentley, etc. over the decades. Who cares if they have broken the law, committed adultery or engaged in cover-ups. It comes back to the ‘touch not God’s anointed ones’ heresy to justify their lawlessness. This is what makes the New Apostolic Reformation so dangerous – it is the same narrative that the late Jim Jones recited before taking his congregation to the grave with bullets and cyanide. Although we are not suggesting any of these leaders are like Jim Jones, their theology is exactly the same in that they are unable to rightly handle God’s Word, or demonstrate any biblical accountability. Instead they rely on their own self-appointed ‘apostolic/prophetic’ status to further their movements.
LIKE WATER OFF A DUCK’S BACK?
There’s a popular expression that goes ‘like water off a duck’s back’ to emphasise that it is not having any effect on the person being criticised. In her response she claims the criticism ‘just rolled off me like water on a ducks back’. However, this ‘quack’ clearly got water stuck in her plumage. It’s worth noting that Belinda is also playing the ‘victim card’ to maximise her martyrdom narrative. By responding to Ps. Rosebrough’s critique, her defence is to thumb her nose at the review, while not being able to refute his very biblical critique. Quoting Psalm 105:15 only proves she has no theological substance to defend her ‘ministry or prophetic office’. Only bizarre claims of God’s ‘vindication’. This classic NAR narrative by Belinda points out how deceitful these false apostles and prophets really are and why they should be monitored and held accountable by governing church bodies or church community groups.
In their wickedness they are doing nothing more than capitalising off the gullible and destroying families in the process.
Belinda Williams wrote the following on social media:
“It’s come to my attention that this USA based organisation called “defending the faith” of which the man behind it remains unnamed to me has been defaming my name and character on social media calling me a false prophet and mocking the prophecy delivered in Australia where I used a pram pushed into the meeting by the revivalist little son Joel who carries a prophetic calling on his life to demonstrate that this new year is a year of birth, by the way this has been confirmed by countless prophets in the past week (I delivered the word in Sep 2018 shortly after the new Jewish Year).
Anyway, here is my response to this 😁🤣😂
I’m praying for you sir, may God have mercy on you and all you have spoke
“Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.”
PSALM 105:15 AMP
It’s not my responsibility to defend myself, that’s God’s job
They mocked Jesus, all the prophets of old, why would we expect any different in today’s society ?
I’m not upset or moved by this, it’s a sign that I’m doing something right 👑
The spirit of the Lord is my vindicator and the Lord is my defender, so this just rolled off me like water on a ducks back
Keep focused the enemy is agitated so we doing something right 😂$$$$
Pray for this man, He Has no idea what His (sic) just done
God bless you sir, I’m praying for you 💟

Commenters on Belinda’s Facebook wall noticed her double standard and wrote the following:
“His name is Chris Rosebrough and his ministry has helped many people see that people in your position abuse the actual Word of God by presumptuously speaking in His Name words you ought not speak. Please repent and believe that you are forgiven by God for the sake of His Son, Jesus Christ, Who suffered and died on your behalf and is raised again, ruling His Kingdom.”
“If you can’t speak against people who serve God then why did you just insult and call names about a pastor? Seems inconsistent application of the scripture you’ve removed from its context.”

A timely reminder from scripture:
“I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” 2 Timothy 4:1-5
