Prophet

Yakim Manasseh Jordan is a self-proclaimed prophet who says that he can predict the future and heal the sick. And for just $1,000, he says he can even raise the dead.

The Brooklyn, New York native Jordan has said in several sermons that he has successfully raised the dead. In one sermon, he described his work with the “Johnson Family” saying, “When he got outside the hospital he called and said your mother that died a couple of hours ago came back to life.”

But now Jordan is being sued in dozens of lawsuits from hundreds of frustrated people who have no idea how Jordan got hold of their phone numbers but would love nothing more than for Jordan to stop robocalling them with promises of miracles and seeing the future.

“The Lord began to speak to me and he showed me major losses that you have experienced within the last two to five years,” Jordan says in the message before promising you and a loved one will soon see “a miracle favor cloud,” “a prosperity blessing,” and a “financial blessing.”

As for which loved one, Jordan has an answer for that, too. “It’s almost as if the second letter of the second syllable in the name is like a vowel making an ‘ah’ or an ‘a”’  sound,” he says. “I must know how much money you are asking God to release. So write me back, and email me immediately…I have to give you this prophesy.”

But the people he is calling are fed up with his prophecies.

“It is miserable,” 20-year-old Tyrell Crosby told the Daily Beast. “I have no idea how they got [my number] but they’ve been calling for over a year.”

Jordan is reportedly facing dozens of lawsuits for his claims.
