SHAKE YOUR SALVATION TREE AND SEE IF ANY FRUIT FALLS

22 Oct

 

   
  What I am about to ask you to do is to “step outside of your personal situation” and see the broader picture for a brief moment.  The problem for all of us is that it is natural for us to be egocentric.  In other words, everything that goes on in the world revolves around us and our immediate situation. I’m asking you to step outside of the boundaries of your own self created circle and consider the state of the organized church system from a historical not a hysterical perspective. Imagine that an operation was done in a hospital on a person who had a communicable disease but no one knew he was infected  at the time. The doctors and staff were  extremely skilled, the hospital was reputable. They simply did not know that the person that was operated on had a disease that would spread and affect everyone. So the operating room was contaminated in spite of their usual efforts to scrub and sanitize it. The contamination spread throughout the hospital. Everyone who came in there was innocent, not knowing what was going on. Disease continued to spread from one person to the other, because no one properly investigated the cause.

Who is to blame? Is it the hospital? The one with the disease? No. It is the enemy. He planted an evil within the organized church system.

ALL are affected by it. There are no exceptions or special cases.

This is the nature of the church age that we live in, the church at Laodicea. Everyone has been contaminated by false and mixed doctrine and practices for at least 100 years or more. Everyone has been deceived, across the board. 

If you are willing to “shake your salvation tree,” your willingness to do so is a  positive sign that your name   actually IS written in heaven.  The first thing that needs to be pointed out is that names written in heaven were penned before the worlds were framed.  In other words, you are one of the elect, whether deceived or not.  If you have been deceived, God will move heaven and earth to bring the light of truth into your confusion and with that light of truth will come both peace and power.

So know this:  GOD IS ALWAYS IN CONTROL!!!! If you have been deceived, the Lord will see to it that the blinders are ripped off of your spiritual eyes. As it is in the natural, sudden light hitting the eyes is painful.  Yet, once the pain subsides, sight and clear vision is worth rejoicing over.  

As a word of hope and deliverance to those of you who have been deceived in church or by people who professed to be Christians, I advise you to stay true to the light because darkness will often be too uncomfortable to stay around the light.  The darkness in the conscience of those of you who are under bondage to either religiosity or charismatic witchcraft will cause you to either humble yourselves and seek deliverance or to lose all ability to discern good from evil.  Hopefully, you will be genuinely convicted and reborn in the spirit. 

 To fight off delusion and obsession, you must continue to search your own life by the spirit, praying to the Father of Lights, “Lord, I want the unfruitful works of darkness in my life to be exposed.  Show up, demon!  Show yourself!!”

Once you pray in this manner, demons will be exposed all around you and your understanding will be enlightened. Not only will your own tree be shaken, but everybody around you will be exposed, one way or another.  So hold onto your seatbelts, Beloved.  Its quite a bumpy  yet an exciting ride!!!

ARE THERE ANY PROPHETS TODAY?

12 Oct

To answer that question, ARE THERE ANY PROPHETS TODAY–  one of the signs that we are living in the last days is the emergence of various internet watchmen. The prophets of old were watchmen. They warned God’s people about “what’s goin on” in the religious world. Some–not all–of these websites are inspired by present day prophets.

Their tools are different. All prophets SPEAK because they are compelled by God to do so. Today, the watchman’s voice is heard predominately through the written word, while others may speak out in a video. Some emphasize informing the people about specific false prophets and ministries. That is an exhaustive task that requires a 24/7 devotion, because there are so many false prophets and ministries to expose. Since these prophetic web ministrues  only target high profile people and their false practices,  they are hindered by not covering other ministries that are equally  noteworthy but only known locally.

Much falls between the cracks.

I preach repentance and the return of the Lord. I cast out demons and I receive visions and dreams.

I used to be a watchman on the web exposing false prophets with a website that I have since closed down called “Beware Christian”. I had to literally DROP IT, because it devoured  too much of my time and I found it counterproductive FOR ME as an author, a counselor and a trainer of ministers.  Nevertheless, I thank God for prophetic, watchman type ministeries of Midnight Cry, Straight is the Way, Deception in the Church,Equip, Paw Creek and others. I now refer seekers to them and I do “another thing.”

To really answer the question in the title, we need to look at the new testament. The prophet that stands out in the gospel days of the Lord’s own ministry  is John the Baptist. The Lord said that John the Baptist is the greatest of ALL prophets, so we need to look at John’s ministry rather closely. John’s prophetic ministry was essentially that he prepared the people of his day for the FIRST coming of the Lord by preaching repentance. John the Baptist did not have the gift of perdicting the future as did the Apostle John. It should be noted that when Jesus called John the Baptist the greatest prophet, the Apostle John was not yet so anointed as a prophet.

However, together, I believe that  BOTH Johns are a composite template of a present day prophet. A present day prophet is one who:

  • Like the Baptist, prepares the last generations for the SECOND coming of the Lord
  • by preaching repentance.  The job is now complicated by the fact that thanks to the organized church and it easy believism, I accept Jesus into my heart, sinner’s prayer practices, so many believe that they are saved but the one who they “accepted” is the fake Jesus, Jesus Sananda Immanuel.
  • Like the Apostle, present day prophets will be given supernatural predictions that are specific to the endtime survival of the elect of God.For example, when we cannot buy and sell, endtime prophets will be able to multiply “the loaves and the fishes” and bring the water from the rocks aas did Moses—AS THE HOLY GHOST LEADS!
  • During the reign of the Anti-Christ, end time prophets will move in the supernatural gifts of the Spirit because miracles, healings, and supernatural power will be needed in order for God’s people to survive, a power simiilar to that of Moses as he brought God’s people out of the bondage of Egypt. Casting out of demons will be one of the prophet’s manysupernatural gifitings not according to the prophet’s will, but at the will and command of the Holy Ghost.

Spiritual discernment will be essential to distingush between a false and a true prophet for both shall have supernatural powers.
