Pentecostal Brian Tamaki is the pastor of Destiny Church in Auckland and former pastor of Lake City Church in Rotorua. Senior pastor and self-proclaimed apostle for Destiny Churches International. As of February 2005 Brian Tamaki is being called a bishop – the first bishop in Destiny. The title was formally bestowed on him at the 7th anniversary celebrations in July 2005.
Brian Tamaki is a false prophet, since in around October 2003 he predicted that Destiny would be ruling New Zealand, ‘I predict in the next five years, by the time we hit our 10th anniversary – and I don’t say this lightly – that we will be ruling the nation’, but his words were not fulfilled.
“Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith. Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD” (Jeremiah 23:31-32).
