The last post I left off with was reading 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 and Mathew 24:4-28. Basically it talks about the great delusion. In this delusion, even his Elect may be deceived. Let’s think about this for a moment…What might happen that could cause Gods children to be deceived? I believe it is false teachings, signs and wonders. I don’t think it would be a blatant lie. It would have to be something hidden, something slightly twisted. A little truth mixed with a lie. Let’s remember for a moment how Satan deceived Adam and Eve. He told Eve a lie disguised in truth. He said, “Surely you won’t die.” In a physical sense we know that they didn’t die, but in the spiritual they did!
Recently I came to a knowing there are many, many False teachers/Pastors and prophets. Now I knew of this because God had shown me this in dreams. But I didn’t have Gods revelation on the dreams and words until the other day, as I had mentioned in the previous post. When this was revealed, I couldn’t help but to say to God, ‘I have been so blind…Forgive me Father. It was all right in front of me and I couldn’t see”. I believe that God allowed me to go through this for his glory.
Mark 8:15-18 “Be careful”, Jesus warned them. “Watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees and that of Herod’. They began to discuss with one another the fact that they had no bread. And Jesus, aware of this, said to them, “Why do you discuss the fact that you have no bread? Do you not yet see or understand? Do you have a hardened heart? “HAVING EYES, DO YOU NOT SEE? AND HAVING EARS, DO YOU NOT HEAR? And do you not remember?
Meaning of the yeast By Mano Alves:
Yeast represents both negative and potentially positive things here- sin, corruption and evil and also those who spread God word or represent God. Yeast also represents growth.
Yeast is a very small substance so if you become even slightly corrupted and conform yourself to the ways of the Pharisees or of the sinful world beware of this for yourself and for others especially if you are preaching the gospel which is what Jesus’ disciples would be doing because their teachings and practices could make man grow into something wrong and corrupted. It also means do not lead others astray through false teachings or practices. One small substance which is yeast or one man can lead many- those who eat the bread, astray. For yeast (the preacher) is responsible for making other things grow, other things which are larger or more numerous than its original self (people in quantity). So Jesus is warning His disciples here of their responsibility towards Him and His true word and true practice and representation of it to themselves and for others.
I want to share with you a dream that I had, it was previously posted to my blog, but now I know what God was saying to me, to the church.
DREAM – False teachers, A blind people
My husband and I were at church. We were sitting in the back left pew (we normally sit in the middle pew on the far right side). We were both standing and it was during worship. There was a new women with brown curly hair on stage leading worship. In my dream I had the impression she was a visitor to our church and she was going to lead worship and study. When all of a sudden my husband walked to the outside of the isle and started yelling a warning to everyone about this women on stage. He was circling the congregation and repeating the same thing over and over. He had to speak over the music because the worship team kept playing the music. In my dream he was speaking to everyone a prophetic warning about false teachers. We were then at the end of service. Some members of the congregation wanted to talk with my husband so I went out side of the church. I see a long bus, I stepped onto the bus to take a look. The bus had a driver’s seat. A one person seat to the right. A little further back there was one bench seat that span from one side of the bus to the other side. I noticed the lady that was leading worship was on the bus and I asked her why there were only these two seats on the bus. She told me that one was for a man (in the dream she did give me the name of the person. He is someone that many people looked up to in our church. He recently left church to hit the streets to spread Gods word) and she said the bench seat was for whoever. She started to drive off with me in the bus as I was still standing. I told her I did not want to go, that I want to be with my husband. I told her to let me off the bus. When I kept persisting she finally let me off the bus. I was alone, it was dark and I was outside of a house that my husband and I will be moving to shortly. I walked into the house and was looking in all the different rooms. In my dream I felt a sensation like I was not alone in the house. I felt a dark witchcraft presence. I continued looking and noticed that the same lady was with me in the house. She was not with me in a physical way but in spirit only – I saw her like a ghost. End of dream.
- My husband represents Gods warning to the church (prophetic voice).
- The one seat on the bus represents leaders and teachers in the church. People believe that these are true servants of God but they are being led by demonic spirits.
- The bench seat was for whoever believed the false teaching.
- Me stepping onto the bus just to take a look, are those Christians that are not fully involved in the false teachings or prophesies but are opening the door to these spirits.
- Spirit of Witchcraft represents the false teachings, such as occultism, spiritualism, witchcraft teachings in the church. Read Deuteronomy 18:10-12, Deuteronomy 13:1-5, and 1 Timothy 4:1.
Meaning: The driver of the bus is a demonic spirit, directly behind the spirit are leaders of the church. These leaders are listening and being guided by these lying tongues. Directly behind the leaders is the congregation or listeners of the false teaching. This demonic spirit is upon false teachers and prophets. These false teachers and prophets are leading Gods people into false doctrine. We, the church must discern the spirits that plague the church. If we do not, the spirit will follow us and take us on a dark ride, where we are alone void of God. Many of the people in the congregation will not hear the warnings of the prophets. They will keep singing and praising a false God. Only a few will hear and take heed to what God is saying to the church.
This was a warning not only to me, but this is also a warning to the church. If you consider yourself a Christian, this warning is for you.
We must make sure we are not following blindly. We may have been taught or told something that we took at face value (even learned from our infancy) but didn’t match up that teaching to the word. I would like to encourage all to not just go along with the crowd (even a Christian crowd). Study the word for yourselves. The Holy Spirit is our teacher, which is a gift from God through Jesus Christ.
OK, so I wanted to get this out. I have lost much of the information that I had been doing research on (I forgot to save a document). So I am going to stop with this for now. I have to do the work again to ensure we are getting the correct information out.
Lord willing my next post will have to do with False teachings and teachers associated within New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). There are many false teachings in this one group (there are also false prophets and healers associated with this). I have posted a couple of web sites that have extensive research associated with exposing false teachings, healings and prophecies. I have not viewed all the material on their pages, so please use discernment and scripture in all things.
- Trace Hayter on you tube. If you are on her Home page you will see a created playlist, False teachings.
I want to leave you with a thought that I have about mainstream Christianity. I have noticed that much of what is taught anymore is self-love and self-desire fulfillment. I have also noticed that we, as Christians are replacing God with ourselves. Anyway I will touch up on this a bit more in the next post.
I would like to give a thanks to Matt for help on editing this post!
God has been speaking to me a lot about deception the last two weeks. He has been reminding me that Satan imitates. I thought about when Moses was trying to bring the Israelites out of captivity. God had instructed Aaron to perform a few miracles to show pharaoh that it was God that had sent them. Then Pharaoh called his magicians to come and perform the same signs. If magicians were able to perform signs and wonders, can it not be done today??? Like I said Satan is an imitator. He is the ruler of this world and a master at deception. I would like to remind all Christians to seek God in all things. Do not believe all things you read, do not believe all things that is on media, and do not believe all things that you hear. Ask God for discernment for all things. What appears to be good, may not…What appears to be a sign, may not. I implore all to seek wisdom and discernment from God.
Lord God I pray for Christians. that you would give a boldness to proclaim your word. A hunger to know you deeper. Lord God I pray that you would Open our eyes and ears to you. Lord God that you would teach us to love according to your word. Lord God I ask you to fill us with your power, your spirit, your love, your peace. Embolden us right now. Lord God you are so good. You never forsake us, You have cleansed us and you guide us. Oh Lord your love, your love changes lives. All praises and honor to you Lord God. I bind you Satan and break your power over our minds and will. I command you Satan to release any strong hold you have over Gods children. We are Gods chosen. We are victorious and free because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We have all authority over you. I command an immediate release of all Christians right now in the name of Jesus. I command you to lift any spiritual blindness, sickness, and fear over Gods children. Now, Now, Now in Jesus Christ name.
Lord God you have placed in my heart a burden for all those who don’t know you, the lost. Lord God I ask that you would call them to you, that you will cause them to respond. That your spirit would be upon them speaking to their hearts. Cause people to come into their lives to speak of your love and encourage them in you. Lord God that you give them an urgency and an understanding that you are calling them to you. Lord God that you will pour out your spirit over the nations calling all to come forth. Lord God that you would awaken them. Lord God that you would empower all those who respond to you, that you will plant their feet in fertile soil, producing much fruit. Lord God I pray that you would call all your harvester forth, all your warriors forth. That now is the time to fight, to stand firm, to fight for your righteousness. A mighty fight for the lost souls. Lord God that you would send your Angles forth with a sword, conquering and fighting for the lost. That the lost would find you in the darkness and sing of your goodness, that they would lift up your name above all else. That they Lord God would stand up unwavering for you lord. Empower then now Lord God, fill them and their house with your spirit. Thank you lord God, thank you Lord God.
Lord God I declare revival is breaking out over the nations, over our children, over our leaders, Lord God that revival is breaking out. Lord that many will come to know you. Lord God that your spiritual gifts will break out over the church. Lord God that the church would rise and claim their inheritance.
Lord God I lift up all the children in the nations. Lord God I ask that you give them a special covering. Father God that you would protect them. Lord God that you would strengthen them in these times of confusion and corruption. Lord God I ask that you would raise them up to serve you. Lord God that they would serve you with all their hearts. I speak blessing over their lives. Lord God that where the world sees darkness they see your light. Teach them, guide them Lord God.
I plead the blood of Jesus over our minds, eyes, and ears that we will not be deceived. That we will not be swayed to do anything against your word against your truth.
I declare and decree that all these prayers are already in motion and we are filled with your power, your spirit, your strength. Thank you Father God for your faithfulness. Thank you Lord God for your mercy and love. Thank you Lord God for giving your son for me, for all.
