Christian?

My heart is troubled because I witness people say that they love God… I witness people say that they know God… I witness people say that they are Christians…

My heart is troubled because there will come a time when each person will kneel before Jesus, believers and unbelievers. There will come a time when each one of us will have to account for our time here on earth, believers and unbelievers. Anyone can say that they believe in Jesus, but that does NOT mean that we know Jesus or that he knows us (Mathew 7:22-23). My heart is troubled because their fruit does not bear life. The word of God teaches us that we will know someone by the fruit that they bear (Mathew 7:18-20). We will know if they are true followers of Christ or just believers of Christ. The word of God also teaches us not to judge someone right? Wrong, the word of God teaches us to look at someone’s fruit and see if it is good fruit or bad fruit. The word of God also tells us that we are to hold brother and sister accountable (fellow Christians)(Mathew 18:15-17). We of course are to do it in love, but none the less we are to try and hold them accountable when we see them veering off track. We are told to do this so they do not pick the wrong road, the broad road. If we see a brother or sister making choices that are not in line with what Jesus taught us we are to speak to them because we love them and don’t want them to fall from God. There have been many times that a fellow Christian has held me accountable for a choice I have made. I am so happy that they did! Not only because they may have saved me from hell, but also because the correction has always given me a better outcome. We are also to judge between what is good and what is evil. So this business of Christians not judging is a fallacy that is in the world. With that being said we are not to judge on appearances, motives, and so forth. Just between good and evil, and yes people do make good choices and evil choices. In basic terms this is saying choose Gods ways or choose the devils ways, the narrow path, or the broad path…Now that that one point is cleared up, I would like to get to the heart of my heart today. Many say that they believe in Jesus, many say that they are Christians, and many say that they love Jesus. But did you know that the word of God is very clear about each one of these things? The word of God says in John 14

21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, “Lord, how is it that You will manifest Yourself to us, and not to the world?”

23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.

24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.

After being reminded of this scripture, I must ask a question. Do you really love him? Do you keep his commands? When you don’t are you able to receive correction from either other brothers and sister or the Holy Spirit? If you do not keep his commands the word of Jesus is plain, YOU DO NOT LOVE HIM. These are some pretty rough things to swallow, but they are still the truth, they are words that are infallible, they are Gods words! DO YOU LOVE HIM???? Or have we been loving the world or our own self? Have we been slowly or rapidly pushing him away until we bend to the world? Until we can’t hear the conviction any longer??

This is one of the reasons my heart is hurting. Too many that profess to believe in God do not have a clue that they are not on the straight and narrow path, Gods path. They do not have a clue that they are baring bad fruit, they do not have a clue that they are not living their life the way that God commands. Some may know that they aren’t, some know that they compromise, and some just refuse to take a look at themselves. But it is clear in all the scriptures I referenced above that if we do not judge between good and evil, if we do not hold each other accountable, and if we do not live out Gods commandments we DO NOT LOVE HIM and we are risking our salvation and our brothers and sister salvation. Worst of it all is because of all these things when we bend our knees at that great and terrible day Jesus could say, depart from me I never knew you….

Witchcraft in the church?!

I am going to lay out for everyone what I have seen and read in a particular church, not just any church but a mega church that is linked to many churches, big and small, throughout the nations.  Even your church may be linked to them, look into it if you find this post true.

In the bible we are given commandments and statues on practicing witchcraft.  We can read in Deuteronomy 18 and in Leviticus 19.  Please read these chapters in full, but for this post I will only post particular scriptures.

Deuteronomy 18:10-13  10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.  11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

A Necromancer is someone who practices magic and can talk to the dead by raising them from the dead or by summoning their spirit.  Summoning their spirit is the same or similar to a failure spirit.  You can read about this in Samuel 28, when Saul was rejected by God, King Saul sought after a witch that could summon the prophet Samuel.

We can also read that this practice is still occurring with Witches but also in the church.

A current practice of Witches, they will take a doll or a poppet and go to a grave site and chant or pray for the spirit to come forth and inhabit the doll.  If a Witch needs a “boost” or they need the spirit to perform a certain task for them they bring the doll out.

I watched several videos of people in the church going to gravesites and perform something called “Grave sucking”.  It is when a member from the church will go to a dead person’s grave site and lay on the tombstone or the ground of the dead person and call the spirit forward by “Jesus name” so they can receive the spirit of the dead.  When I first watched this, I knew this was wrong.  But I had thought, well maybe it’s just a couple of young kids being dumb or they were misguided…Misguided was right.  Not only were these young men practicing Necromancy or Witchcraft but the leaders of the church were too!

The difference between the two accounts mentioned above with the Witch and the church leaders, is the witch is invoking the familiar spirit into a doll while the church leaders and members call the familiar spirit into themselves!  Church members are actually being guided by these familiar spirits.

This is not the only witchcraft practice that is being performed in the church.  But for the sake of keeping this short I will just stick with this for now…

So you may be wondering who and what church is doing this, this is just crazy!

Well the name of one of the churches is called Bethel out of Redding California.  They were introduced to this practice by John Crowder (which teaches Contemplative Spirituality, Supernatural Christianity, How to Operate in Trances (wow really?)).  On Bethels Facebook page they say, “Of course, Crowder did not originate this practice. It has been popular in the Word of Faith movement for many years. Benny Hinn used to do this a lot at Kuhlman and McPhereson’s graves”.  Wait, What???  You’re telling me that Benny Hinn also practiced Witchcraft?  Yep!

So I have left you with 3 different groups here that practice witchcraft within the church.  These are leaders that have big followings, millions!  Millions of people within the church has been exposed to false teachings and to witchcraft!  Not only are they exposed to it, the members are now practicing it.

What does the Lord say about those who practice Witchcraft?

Leveticus 19: 31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.

Leviticus 20: And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

Leviticus 20: 27 A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.

This is part four of my recent posts on false teachings.  This will most likely be my last post on false teachings and Witchcraft within the church.  So I want to leave you with encouragement if you are one that is or has been deceived.

God is merciful and is waiting for you to come back into his fold.  Just repent and dig into him.  Meaning, seek God through his word, prayer and worship.  Do not look to the world for teaching.  Jesus told us he is sending us a helper, which is the Holy Spirit.

I am praying for all those that are deceived or maybe deceived.

Blessings Brothers and Sisters!

Personal communion

2/22/17

I have been a true Christian for about 4 or 5 years now. I didn’t watch the news, I didn’t search the web to look for direction, others opinions or thoughts. In all things that had pertained to my walk as a Christian, my walk with God, it was purely him and I. I actually didn’t even study the word at first.

I knew things that others had told me as a child and I knew about small stuff in the bible, but I didn’t know anything of End times, the functions of the spirit, and so forth. All I knew is God loved me and he sent his son to die on the cross for me and the world. I knew I had to ask God into my heart. I knew the basics. After becoming a true Christian I learned as God had taught me. He and I would spend so much time together. He would drop truth in my heart through the Holy Spirit ministering to me and through dreams and visions. After about a year of my walk with God, I started to pick up the bible and read things here and there. Much of what I read confirmed what the Holy Spirit had been teaching me. It was truly a beautiful time. I was completely full. I didn’t have to work on my relationship with God, it’s as if it just came naturally. All the fruits of the spirit were present in me, Gods gifts were present in me.   It wasn’t something I had to ask for or work at it was just there. All this carried on until about a year ago, maybe a little longer. Time slips by so fast anymore…

It all started with the Alien Demonic dream. It was so farfetched in my mind that I didn’t know what to make of it. This dream went against much of what I believed. When I had this dream I went to God for his direction. He gave me insight and he gave me a word. But I still didn’t have the understanding of all the other stuff in this dream. So I began to look on the web and read books. I wanted to see if there were other Christians out there that had a similar dream, I wanted to see if there were Christian teachings on Alien Demons, I wanted to study what the one eye meant, the star, the colors, the swords. I didn’t stop there either. I began to study other “Christian” topics such as the end times (this category has so many different topics). I learned that there were current prophets and teachers and began listening to many different people. I began to fill up on all types of Christian stuff. I still gave my time to God in the mornings. I still gave him time in the evening’s right before bed. I also gave him time during the day by studying and reading, gaining “Christian knowledge”. So the majority of my day was still dedicated to God. It seemed the more head knowledge I had, the more I wanted.

During this period I became more reliant on my own understanding and less reliant on Gods teaching through the Holy Spirit. Less reliant on God in general. I did not turn away from him, but I wasn’t dependent on him as I once was. God didn’t turn away from me either. He was constant on his warnings, I was just too blind to see. I continued to hear the Holy Spirit but not as frequent. The fruits of the spirit were still there but not as strong. The gifts that God has given me are still there but put on hold. I believe it was put on hold by myself by limiting God in my life. I was striving to be a Christian. It became difficult to be a Christian. The naturality was gone, the simplicity was gone. The load has become heavy…

During this time God spoke to me. God said, “Do not seek confirmation from others. Few are called to speak for me. Few know my heart. Few know my plans. Seek me, seek the Holy Spirit for confirmation. I am using you for great plans. When you hear me, speak it forth. No matter if it goes against the mainstream. For you hear me clearly. Stop doubting, it is time.” I am not professing to be an appointed Prophet. Not at all! As Gods true children we ALL have the ability to hear God. It tells us in the word that God will send us the Holy Spirit through Jesus. The Holy Spirit is, a comforter, a teacher, and he convicts. The Holy Spirit lives in us and is upon us, he enables us. This also tells us we can hear him. If we can hear him then we have no need to seek all these voices, these LYING tongues. YOU CAN HEAR FROM GOD DIRECTLY!

I was very humbled by this. I was very grateful for this. But I was also very afraid and doubtful. Not doubtful in God but myself. After hearing this, little by little I stopped doing the listening to others. Little by little I stopped studying worldly, Christian teachings.  I became paralyzed in sorts. I didn’t know what to think. I didn’t know what was correct and what was not. I was so confused and had no one to lean on for support to get back. To help me clear my thinking. I knew something was wrong but wasn’t sure what it was or how to get back on track.

Recently I have gained a dear brother in Christ. The last four or five months he has really helped me. He has prayed for me and my family. He allowed me to voice my questions and concerns with no feel of judgment and he also allowed me to find my way with guidance. I believe it was a divine appointment to help guide me back.

I had not realized this was a lesson or correction until early this morning…It all hit me like a ton of blocks. A friend of mine might call it a down load : ).

I have now become full in my head, but am lacking in my heart. The heart is where God operates.

Revelations 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him and he with me.

We are to commune with him daily, hourly, secondly. Especially in these deceptive and dark times! Pray without seizing, praise with a humble heart. Seeking HIM in all matters and in all things. I am not to be taught by the world but by his word and spirit alone.

I am not saying that we are not to be aware of what is going on in the world. I am not saying that we are not to study. I am simply saying that we must be in constant communion with God first. Him being our first priority, our first and last go too.

As I was speaking to God yesterday, as I was thanking him and asking for forgiveness. He told me that I am to share this, because ‘it’s not only to teach you, but to open the eyes of others.” He told me that “there is more to share”….So this is the “more” he wants me to share.

I had not only learned to keep constant communion with God. I have also learned that there are many false prophets, teachers, and healers. They are being led by a demonic spirit. In my next post I will be exposing some of these lying tongues that the Holy Spirit warned me about. I will back it up with scripture, links, and a dream.

The reason why I am going to expose the false teaching, is first, because God told me too. Second because these false teachings and prophetic voices were a stumbling block for me and has been for millions of other people. I wonder if this could be the great delusion or falling away spoken about in the bible. Even the Elect might be deceived….

For those of you who would like to know Gods truth, I encourage you to prepare for the next post. Read 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 and Mathew 24:4-28. Ask God to speak his truth to your heart and meditate on these scriptures.
