** Update Dec 31, 2014: there is a part 2 to this that is more current, Anita Fuentes False Watcher on the Wall**
One of the people I followed for a good year or so truely has proven herself a sensationalist. Yup Anita Fuentes. Most of her critics talk about how shes always asking for money, How she blocks people that dont agree with her on her facebook page, and general annoyances of which is somewhat understandable on her part. What I see with her is she has really shift gears the past 6 months or so. She used to have credible news articles, she used to give pretty decent sermons- lately though I’ve seen her spin the bible around to suit news articles in every possible nonsense way to get a thumbs up.
Should she be reading this I want her to know she needs to get back to what she was doing before. I realize she has her reasons for doing livestream, but with quantity of viewers she sacrifices quality of what she has to say. At the same time what she has to say is so often wayyy off the mark of the bible. The lady who once always shouted “Quoting the bible out of context” Is now very much guilty of the same thing. Many of these things I will get into at the end. in addition, no longer does she fact check her sources- now it seems she promotes any asinine thing that sounds evil but more often, its just ridiculous. Lets point to a few examples taken from her youtube:
“SHEMITAH – A Nation Under Judgment 9/25/10”
What anita fails at here is explaining to christians what the ‘Shemitah’ actually is. It has nothing to do with judgement its a year debts are erased… Instead of explaining what the biblical interpretation is, she assumes Jonathan Cahn has all the answers. Interestingly enough Jonathan Cahngoes on to twisting the bible around well out of context himself. While the theory might seem pretty credible something christians are not educated on is the ‘Scemitah’ or ‘Jubelees’- thus we found someone to hijack it into anything they want it to mean. More importantly, she endlessly promotes this elusive take on the bible instead of ever addressing the bible itself. Why not? because dear ones this is what is known as “Profiteering Propaganda”. I can make the bible say anything but If I want to profit on it, its gonna need an interesting spin. Thats what we see here.
“7 Days after Shemitah Dow Jones Drops AGAIN almost 300 POINTS! 10/2/14″
From an investor prospective, the stock market has always gone up and down- this includes the Dow Jones. What most non investors don’t know about the stock market is Usually the markets drop on Wednesdays and pick up again Fridays and Mondays… This isn’t coincidence there’s a lot of reasons for this, mostly because companies buy at the beginning and end of the week and sell somewhere in the middle. It’s such a noticeable thing to anyone who has watched the stock market long enough plan their investments in accordance with it. 300 point drop is not that uncommon, usually its pretty welcomed by investors. It means the market drops Wednesday so buy on Thursday, sell again on Monday. However, I assume she herself doesnt know this- I also assume most people dont know this because they havnt had a reason to pay attention to it. But how it is used here is to further support the Shemitah theory, as anyone can see The Dow jones keeps fluctuating like this throughout the week. The fact is you can make anything so commonplace look like anything, thats exactly what shes doing here.
“Israel wants 7 year Peace Agreement… 8/21/14″
Interesting how this sounds remarkably like “jacobs trouble” in the bible… The problem is Israel said no such thing- at the time they were in the middle of blowing up Hamas in the gaza strip. Peace talks were common though always broken by hamas- no official in israel said anything about “7 years”. Nice try Anita, an intelligent christian would probably know the significance of “7 years of peace in israel”, but its just not happening yet. As it is now, Israel and Hamas are biding their time with each other, at any moment war can break out again. Here I find myself looking in the face of reckless sensationalism. There is no concern on her part in actually explaining this alleged peace talks credibility or any concern in what Jacobs Trouble actually is. All she wants here is you to click and hear her rant.
“CONFIRMED! 9/11/14 “Undetectable Explosives”
Tell us Anita, What exploded on 9/11/14? nothing. Here what im really asking is to test Anita’s fruits. Her first clue this was sensational should have been ISIS made the threat… I realize we should take their threats somewhat seriously, but if we drop and run at every little thing they have to say were only going to spin around in circles everyday. At the same time the threat was Not “Confirmed’ Homeland security said they were worried there “Might” be an attack on 9/11. key word “Might”. What we see here is again sensationalism.
“CDC Highest Level 1 Alert Ebola Emergency / Is Ebola A Plague of 2 Witnesses ?” Aug 6, 2014
Here we see once again twisting the bible to suit news articles for sensationalist purposes. Clearly this should have been obvious to her- The 2 witnesses, first come way in the end of revelation- there’s a specific timeline she completely ignored that just obviously hasnt happened (IE jacobs trouble). Second, The 2 witnesses as the bible tells us will be well known people through out the whole world and they will be standing at the third temple. Who are these 2 witnesses Anita, where is the third temple? At best she could have simply called Ebola the 4th seal- and at least be more accurate about it, instead she choose the sensationalist approach to go above and beyond.
That being pointed out…
Now I just cherry picked a few videos on her youtube channel I could go on but I fail to see the point. Truly now every time she airs I hear it more and more with her. Shes gone off into a wild tangent discrediting the bibles prophecy in every abominable way by pulling up whatever tin foil hat wearer writes in some article somewhere. Are we living in the last days? I am convinced we are, because the very first sign is great deception- as illustrated here with Anita. She needs to get back on track concerned more for her credibility then likes, views and donations.
Speaking of Donations
Since every critic gives her headache over this, I will say to her credit I can see she at least is not running a scam ring. She actually does put up billboards, the website, sale items, and she actually does send out packages to Christians that call on her to be saved. I wouldn’t doubt she even puts her own money into her ministry. I can tell because I’ve done the math on it a few times- it all does add up shes not keeping the money for herself. However all things said above need to change if she wants another donation from me- I will not represent Bible prophecy in such a heretical manner that involves blatant lies for a youtube click.
All things else considered
When Anita first started part of the reason she was good was she had the ability to collect her thoughts before posting something. Posting on youtube once or twice a week, carefully selecting her articles there was a better delivery and more honest point of view.. When she borrowed the idea from Paul Begely to go on livestream she had no such luxury, thus sacrificing discernment and leaving her viewers with propaganda pieces. I enjoy her sermons, she is a very good minister, I would recommend she kept to that for livestream, news articles for youtube videos. Perhaps the day will come when tri-weekly news updates on bible prophecy will become necessary, but that time has not come just now- its simply too soon and simply too obvious. I am sending this post to Anita, because I want her to know she needs to come to terms with such issues. I doubt she’ll respond, shes not very good with criticism, though I’ve put my 2 cents in and hope at the least this was constructive for her.
*Update 2 hours later* well it didnt take long to get a response Anita made her point clear she read what I had to say. Purposely posting about the dow jones on her facebook page and blocking me. Seeing this was written on a wendsday.. I wasnt going to make a big deal about this at first- Now Im putting in tags and adding ‘False Teacher’ to the title, so people on google can read this. Its been a good year Anita, very entertaining, but there is one less customer over here.
