Each year, controversial prophet Bob Jones, who works with Rick Joyner, gives a so-called "Shepherd's Rod" prophecy for the next year.

The Shepherd's Rod for 1999Off-site Link

Bob Jones' and Rick Joyner's understanding of the term "Shepherd's Rod" - and the significance they assign to it - is described in the brief introduction, which includes the following statement:

For the past decade Bob Jones has received significant revelations on this date outlining the activities of the Holy Spirit for the coming years. The accuracy of these revelations has proven to be extremely profound.

The introduction to the Shepherd's Rod for 1998Off-site Link had this statement:

For the past decade, Bob Jones has received significant revelations on this date outlining the activities of the Holy Spirit for the coming year. The accuracy of these revelations have proven to be extremely profound over the course of those years.

Aside from the changed statement on accuracy, last year's "for the coming year" had now changed into "for the coming years," thus significantly changing the time frame covered by this year's prophecy.
