Bill Johnson: Fowl Language
by Bud Press
January 27, 2012
The Bible contains references to a wide variety of animals and birds,
including owls. Owls are nocturnal and were created with large eyes. Generally,
they rest during the day and hunt at night, and use their unique night
vision to locate small animals and insects.
But did you know that because owls can see at night, they represent
the prophetic? That's what Bill Johnson believes. In fact, read what Johnson
said about owls to one of his Facebook followers on January 23, 2012:
Donna Granger: Owls are coming into Washington and Oregon
now. I had a vision of a white owl flying over a forest of dark leafy green
trees at Theresa and Pat's house in Klamath Falls 2 weeks ago. The next
day the Sunday paper had a picture of a snowy owl and an article about
scientist not understanding why they are coming down here from Alaska and
Bill Johnson's comments raise a lot of questions, such as: Is the owl the
only animal that represents the prophetic? What about the other animals
that see in the night, such as deer, racoons, dogs, and cats? If they don't
represent the prophetic (like the owl), does it mean they misrepresent
the prophetic? Does this mean that all animals (except the owl), are false
Bill Johnson: Owls represent the prophetic. They see in the
Bill Johnson's comments could cause a catastrophic calamity within
the animal kingdom. In a jealous rage, animals of all shapes and sizes
could ban together against owls and launch an "attack" of epic proportions.
Owls would have to flee (or fly) for their lives. Any animal that sided
with the owls would be labeled a "hootetic hunter". The results could be
Yes, that's ridiculous--just as ridiculous as Bill Johnson saying that
"Owls represent the prophetic".
Final question: Where does the Bible say that owls represent the prophetic?
Well, it doesn't, but because Bill Johnson said it, his followers believe
Owls represent the prophetic? That's fowl language from one who spends
too much time hooting heresy.
