Birds Of A Feather Falsely Prophesy Together

   
On Tuesday March 26th 2002, radio host Steve Quayle once
again provided a platform for false prophecies - to say
nothing of promoting the work of "Christian" preachers that
propagate completely false doctrine. While Quayle continues to
provide the radio vehicle for false doctrine put forth by his "prophet"
guests, he simultaneously seeks to distance himself from the false
statements those guests put forth. In short, Quayle wants it both
ways.

   
To put it in another light, if any of his bizarre radio guests ever
actually utter a prophecy that turns out to be true, Steve
Quayle is in the position of taking the credit and claiming to be
the individual that brought forth "the truth" to his listening
audience. Conversely, each time his guest's "prophecies" fail,
he then claims NOT to have been the author (or the responsible
party) of the false prophetic statement. This commercial waffling is
reminiscent of Stan Johnson's "Prophecy Club" shenanigans
in which the now disgraced former Dale Carnegie organization
speaker created a national speaker's bureau for dozens of false
prophets - yet continually claimed he was just providing a
service for the gullible public.

   
In the case of Cecil DuCille, we have just another
error-ridden preacher whose prophetic statements never should have
been publicized in the first place. However, many fans of the Steve
Quayle
school of commerce refuse to recognize the fact that
the agenda is always the same: Scare the public half to death with a
prediction of an imminent devastation, and then sell them
survival food and/or gold and silver via the marketing masters at
Quayle's sales organization Safe Trek.

   
For those that missed Tuesday's Q-Files program on the
reprobate radio network known as the Genesis Communications Network,
Steve Quayle's guest categorically prophesied that
America would be decimated with a nuclear strike on Saturday, March
30th 2002. He further stated that,

"Jesus
came into my room. He talked to me everyday as a man coming into my
room. He talked to me for 7 months... On the 16th of June in the year
2001... I heard a voice say to me... there will be blood and fire on the
earth. I knew in my heart that this was the massacre that God was
talking about. I just counted the time and it turned to be the 30th of
March this year." [Cecil DuCille, Q-Files Radio Program, 3/26/02]

   
Predictably, Steve Quayle's response was not to
seek to dig deeper into the false theology of this individual that was
presenting a false prophecy on his program. Instead, Quayle
continually restated DuCille's claim in a fashion that indicated
that he considered the prophet's message to be a valid one. For
instance, regarding Mr. DuCille, Quayle stated that

"God
is telling him that stuff is going to happen this weekend... God shared
with him that 200 days from September 11th [March 30th] there would be
blood and there would be fire... Cecil's got a fabulous message... God
told you to come to America to warn Americans of the destruction that
was coming." [Steve Quayle, Q-Files Radio Program, 3/26/02]

   
Incredibly, at no time did Mr. Quayle challenge his guest on the
scriptural veracity of the doctrinal statements that followed. Indeed,
DuCille's pronouncements repeatedly contradicted his own previous
statements and Quayle never once sought to point out the
inconsistencies. For example, Ducille claimed "We entered into the
tribulation long ago."

   
A few minutes later, he contradicted that statement and said "The
1st part of the tribulation, which is a 3 1/2 year part, we are about
entering into that now." Obviously, if the tribulation started "long
ago," how can it be just about to start? Ducille continued with his
message of confusion unabated. He claimed "God showed me the
tribulation was 40 years... The 40 years have been shortened to 38 yrs
and the end of the tribulation shall be in 2008." This would mean
the tribulation started in 1970 - but the false prophet
offered absolutely no scripture to support such a statement.

    What is unconscionable is that Mr. Quayle
apparently broadcast this false prophet's message without any
checking on the theology of Cecil DuCille. This writer went to
DuCille's website, and in less than 10 minutes I found numerous
statements that plainly indicate the man's doctrine is riddled with
unscriptural errors. For example, in a writing called "The Seals Of
God," DuCille states that the 7 seals of Revelation are "the seven
mysteries of God." He says the first "mystery is Salvation"
while "the second mystery is baptism... the third mystery is walking
in union with Jesus Christ. That is, 'the candlestick walk,'... the
fourth mystery is feasting upon Christ, the fifth mystery is the
offering of the soul... the sixth mystery is the overshadowing of God... the
seventh mystery is the 'man child.' Those, in a nutshell, are the
seven seals." [Revelation Part 1, Cecil DuCille]

   
The fact is, this interpretation is virtually incoherent, for the text
plainly tells us the first four seals are synonymous with the Four
Horsemen Of The Apocalypse, and by the time we reach the 4th
horseman, "power was given unto them [Death and Hell] over the
fourth part
of the earth to kill with sword, and with
hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth."
[Revelation 6:8]. This is obviously a description of tribulational events,
yet Ducille calls this horrifying episode "feasting upon Christ."

   
Later in the same writing, Cecil DuCille contradicts his own
statements and then proclaims that "The first seal is the coming of
Jesus Christ." He's apparently referring to the first coming of
Christ for he then seeks to match the seals to past history. It is
simply incredible to identify the first horseman of the four horsemen
as Jesus Christ for the Bible writes concerning that
first white horse that "he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown
was given unto him, and he went forth conquering, and to conquer"
[Revelation 6:1]. We all know what a militaristic conqueror Christ
was.

   
Obviously, I'm being sarcastic, but it's difficult not to be
cynical where false prophets like this are concerned. The fact is, if Steve
Quayle
had bothered to search DuCille's website before
using him to sell survival materials, he would have also found Ducille's
ministry quoting favorably concerning William Branham - the
infamous false prophet of the 1950's and 60's.

   
For those unaware of the late William Branham (1909-1965), he also
claimed to have a prophecy of the 7 seals - and visitations
from Jesus. Branham proclaimed himself to be the angel of
Revelation 3:14 and 10:7. He prophesied the word of God was given in 3
forms - the Zodiac, the Egyptian pyramids, and the written
scripture. Branham denied the trinity - teaching the 'Jesus
Only' brand of Pentecostalism, and taught that Eve had sex with the
snake in the garden - the so-called "serpent seed"
doctrine. It gets worse, but I think you've got the idea. By the
way, Steve Quayle has publicly embraced elements of the
prosperity doctrine that is taught by frauds like Kenneth Copeland
and Kenneth Hagin - the latter being a well known
reprobate that emulates the teachings of William Branham.

   
On Cecil DuCille's website, I found the following statement:

"There
was never a man... that was a man like William Branham. He had a
calling and an anointing... the man had an anointing from God. HE WAS
ANOINTED like no man that I know in the generation in which he lived
or the time since." [Burt Asbill, The Nature Of The Beast,
8/8/99]

    Apparently, Steve Quayle did take at
least some time to review Cecil DuCille's credentials, for he spoke
about his book as though he had read it - but we never
heard a word about the false doctrine on Ducille's website. During
the radio interview, Quayle pushed DuCille's written material
entitled The Omega Message. It sounded like Quayle had read the
book I cited from earlier as he unabashedly promoted DuCille's work
because he said "Ladies & Gentlemen I would encourage you to get
this because the detail is fantastic" [Steve Quayle,
Q-Files, 3/26/02].

   
As of this writing, it is apparent that Cecil DuCille's
prophecy of America's destruction on March 30th has failed. While we
do not follow the traditional description of what constitutes a false
prophet, the written and broadcast statements of Cecil DuCille
indicate that he propagates a different version of the Gospel - in
other words, his savior sounds quite a bit like "another Jesus."

   
While the man has a powerful presence, his prophetic perspective is in
serious error. We also believe that America is scheduled
for a devastating punishment in the immediate future. However, the
underlying doctrine that supports that perspective is what is crucial
in the matter. We don't label DuCille a false prophet because
his prophecy failed; indeed, we believe it will actually come to pass
at some point in the near future.

   
The problem is one of perspective. There are many gospels out there,
and the gospel of Cecil DuCille is not the one we find
in scripture. Steve Quayle, on the other hand, is a
textbook case of "a double minded man [that] is unstable in all his
ways" [James 1:8]. As Quayle continues to serve two masters, he has
moved deeper and deeper into the instability of a man that is
deceived. The Word of God is cogent and coherent with the Lord's
description of men like Steve Quayle that have refused
to repent of their wickedness. The Holy Spirit states "They profess
that they know God, but in works they deny him, being abominable, and
disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate" [Titus
1:16].
