Pastor Jeff Jansen: Trump Will Be Reinstated Whether ‘People Like It or Not’

Jeff Jansen

Pastor Jeff Jansen, a self-described prophet who was recently ousted by the ministry he founded, remains adamant that former President Trump will still have “back-to-back terms,” as “God promised.”

Jansen, author of Trump: God’s Destiny for America, initially said Trump’s reinstatement would occur by the end of April, via military coup. When that didn’t happen, he said that before spring officially begins on June 23, Trump’s return will lead to “dancing in the streets.” Contrary to what Jansen said, spring officially ends in June and began in March.

The former president’s reinstatement, Jansen says, will occur whether people “like it or not” because “God is going to do something amazing in this nation and through this nation.”

Jeff Jansen Refuses to Submit to Church Discipline

On May 5, a statement posted to the Global Fires Ministry website notes that its board asked Jansen to “step down…due to unscriptural and unbiblical behavior.” The founder, it says, was “disqualified…from New Testament leadership” because of “a pattern of making poor moral choices, and bad coping mechanisms [and] character flaws.”

“Rather than submit to the process of healing and restoration, Jeff recently made an intentional decision to leave his wife and family to pursue his own desires,” the statement says. “Any pursuit of further ministry on Jeff’s behalf is not under the umbrella and blessing of Global Fire Ministries.”

Jeff Jansen and his wife of more than 25 years, Jan, had been listed on tax documents as the only two Global Fire board members, according to investigative reporter Julie Roys. Jan Jensen told Roys that changes were recently made but gave no other details. She also told the reporter that Jeff is still using the Global Fires name, without permission.

Roys also reports that Jeff Jansen has a history of DUIs—and that, in a since-deleted post, he admits to making mistakes and having weaknesses, saying his public stance about Trump was a “crushing weight on an already struggling marriage.”

Response to Jeff Jansen’s Claims

On social media, reaction to Jansen’s prophecies and circumstances are mixed. “The Kingdom suffers violence and the violent TAKE IT BY FORCE,” one person writes. “The Holy Remnant shall take back ALL, RECOVER ALL…that was stolen.” Another person comments, “C’mon Jeff…you need to own up to what is really going on with you and your ministry. They are saying they threw you out, so what is the truth here?”

Jansen has indicated that he’ll provide “an update interview soon.”

A group of Charismatic leaders recently established prophetic standards, largely in response to unfulfilled predictions about the 2020 presidential election. A key standard involves making a public apology when a prophecy involving specific dates and details doesn’t happen.

Not all self-described prophets are on board with those standards, however. Georgia Pastor Johnny Enlow says apologizing would amount to disagreeing with God. Calling the 2020 election the “confrontation of the ages,” Enlow says, “Heaven is speaking to us and telling us a message, who is really president who is really under the authority of heaven.”

On the website of his ministry, Restore7, Enlow likens prophecy to “a multi-piece puzzle.” He writes, “To not know THE DAY justice sweeps in does not change what IS known.”
