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!

Last warning

The Lord has been speaking to me about a number of things over the last few months.  He has been speaking to me about the state of the church and the state of the nation.  I have not wanted to share these things because I get tired of sounding the alarm when it seems that no one will listen.  I have asked God why he continues to try and warn people when they refuse to listen.  My heart had started to turn cold toward the church because they refuse to listen.  They have no excuse.  But God in his mercy has changed my heart and my thoughts.

God has been speaking to his church and the nation for some time now.  But they refuse to listen.  They carry on with life without even a second thought of God the Father.  They love themselves unto death….  They do not love God unto death….

God has given me direction and warning for the church and the nation.  I have submitted all his words and dreams to my church and much I have posted on this blog.  Up until the last few months.

I believe this will be the last warning from God before great devastation that will befall on this nation…

These are very serious times we are in.  In fact we have been here for years.  I believe that the decision of the direction of this country was set in 2001.  Since then God has called this country to repentance.  Since then very few have chosen to repent.  God gave me an insight of the church.  He showed me that one in every four practicing Christians will actually hear his voice during these time that are about to fall upon this nation.  We will not be taken up to the sky before these terrible thing come upon us.

Because we have not repented, we will get what our hearts desire.  Because the church has not stepped up and stepped out to intercede for this nation, for the lost.  We will be put into the same cup as the rest.  Only Gods true children will be spared much of the devastation because they have repented, they have been obedient,  because they hear him and respond.  It will still be hard for his children, but not like for the rest.  We have become spoiled in this nation.  In this country.  Gods hand will guide and protect his children.

The pastors will suffer double fold because they have lead his people astray.  And how they have allowed people to get comfy in sin and rebellion to God the Father.  There are also pastors who have not warned about the time we are in.  They have not taught his people how to survive in the times we are about to enter.  They have not taught God’s children how to fight against the evil that runs rampant in this nation.  They have helped to lead Gods people astray and to slaughter.

Because sin has run rampant in the hearts and the minds of this nation.  God will come down like a mighty fire.  There will be catastrophe after catastrophe in this once great nation…

God has revealed to me that it will be like (if not) in Revelations when the seals were broken open.  One thing after another.  One thing on top of another.  War, famine, death…Millions will be lost.

A couple of times in the church I have cried out.  Great sobs, great whales, and great sorrow.  This is when the spirit of God came upon me and showed me the burdens on his heart.  It is so deep that I couldn’t even contain myself.  Even if I could contain myself I would not want to.  I pray to God the Father that I would have one mind, one heart, and one spirit that aligns with him.  But if I were to push away those burdens, I would be in the same state as others in the church.  DEAD.

But God said he would resuscitate his church.  He promised that if we would cry out to him and turn from our ways he would resuscitate us.  Few have, if any.  Not nearly as many as he is calling.

I bring this up because a few weeks back Gods spirit came upon me.  Many in the church thought that it was a burden I had about myself.  It was not.  It was a burden so great, so great.  I cried out that the Lord would have mercy on this nation, that he would breath his breath upon this nation. In fact I cry as I am writing about this burden…God has placed this burden there because we are at the brink.  This is all literally at arms reach.  And it goes unnoticed.  Gods voice goes unnoticed by his own people.

It could have been like the day of Nineveh.  They were warned, they repented, and they were spared and blessed.  But the United States of America has chosen a different path.  They have chosen the path of Sodom and Gomorrah.  Cause of this we will suffer devastation after devastation.

You know, honestly at this point it makes no difference who gets elected into office.  Because we have not repented.  Gods hand has been lifted off of this nation for some time now.

What has the church done, what have you done?  Or have we been sleeping and didn’t notice?  Did someone warn us but we didn’t listen?  Are we too comfortable in our lives that we wont allow God to stretch us, to mold us into who HE wants us to be, who he has called us to be?  Are we too comfy in our lives that we don’t want to make waves in our lives, in our families lives, in strangers lives, or in other members of the churches lives.  We have been keeping our eyes closed and our mouths shut to sin.  And we are about to suffer the consequences of sin.

All we have to offer in this dark world is Gods love and our testimony.  A testimony of what God has done in our lives.  Have we shared our testimony lately?  Have we set an example to those who are watching?  Are you sharing hatred, contempt, greed, self love, and lust?  What does your life look like to someone looking in?  It is past time to clean up your camp, to clean up your house.

It is about ready to unfold one thing right after another….Are you ready?  Are you prepared?  I don’t mean physically either.  I mean are you prepare spiritually?  Can you hear Gods voice to guide and direct you.  Do you listen for his voice to discern to have his wisdom?

Blessings,

L.

 

 

 

 

Prepare and Repent

God is pouring his power and anointing out over the church. God shared with me that there is a shifting in the atmosphere. He showed me that there is 3 different types of shifting. One of them I am going to talk about today is the shifting over the church. The shifting is the release of Gods power. This was an awesome message to me! When God revealed this to me I knew that the pouring out of Gods power is the releasing of healing, breaking of bondage, and authority over the atmosphere, bringing the dead back, and a change of circumstances over his children, a renewing, a restoring. The sense I got was that it was going to be even greater than what it was in acts. I knew that the harvest was ready. God also showed me that in order to partake in this awesome time for the church, we need to get ourselves ready for it.   We must repent as individuals and as a church. He told me that we all have things that are hidden or have been buried deep inside of us. He showed me that one of the biggest sins in the “church” is pride. Pride of oneself, pride of material possessions, pride of status, pride of unforgiveness and bitterness.   God is calling his church to awaken and repent. Awaken church for the time has come to repent. God is saying he needs us to prepare and repent, that the time is at our door step. This is the last move.   Don’t miss it, because of pride. Don’t miss it because you failed to put God in his rightful place. Don’t miss it because you are deaf and dumb. He is calling his church to awaken and come forth. For now is the hour to repent. I encourage all who is reading this to ask God to reveal the hidden sin. He loves us so much. He wants all to come to him in submission, into cleanliness. If you sincerely ask he will reveal things to you that hinder you, that hurt you and others, and for some will keep you from heaven.

God wants to have a deeper relationship with us. He is calling us forth to repent/to turn from our ways. To completely turn from what the world has to offer. A complete submission to God. God has unimaginable treasures in store for us in heaven and on earth. He is releasing his power over his faithful church.

This last year has been a rollercoaster for me. But I can just feel the charge in the atmosphere. I can feel his power right there ready to be released. I know what God showed me about the pouring out of his power, but I know it will be greater than I am even anticipating! I am so excited for this release. I am so excited for the harvest. This is the desire of my heart, to see many come to know Christ in an intimate way. This will truly be an exciting time for his faithful church.

Is everyone ready for the greatest East winds?  Is everyone ready for the down pouring of the rain?  Is everyone ready for the heavens doors and windows to be opened?  Is everyone ready?  Can you hear it?  Can you see it coming?  Can you feel the charge?  Contest for it with me faithful Brothers and Sisters.

Lord God,

I come before you today with a humble heart.  A heart that hurts for those who are not ready.  I ask you Lord God to send your spirit down to all those who read this today.  Lord God that it will cut and crumble the hardened heart.  Lord God that it will awaken the def and dumb.  I praise you Lord God for your mercy and grace in our life.  I praise you and thank you for your love.  In Christ Jesus name.  Amen!

IT IS THE TIME

Partial re-blog to see the full post go to August posting:

God has revealed to me that THIS IS the time of Mathew 24.  We are at the birthing pains that Jesus talked about.  Jesus is telling his church not to worry, that these things MUST come.  There will be a covering over his church.  His church will go through these things but wont affect us like the rest.  We are at the time of the big war between God and Satan.  This is the time of a physical and spiritual war.  That we are and will see all the things Jesus foretold in Mathew.  The word God gave me about the shifting on the earth is Satan’s power/influence running wild.  God will no longer hold him back (gods hand has lifted), he is loose.  The shifting in the heavens is the release of Gods spirit over the nations.  Touching all the lost souls and “Christians” that are balancing on the fence, IT IS THE TIME to pick a side.  There is no more waiting or having both sides any longer.  Gods spirit will primarily be for these two groups.  th[9]

The shifting in the heavens is also the outpouring of Gods power over the true church’s.  His power will enable us to help in the fight.  This is the time to stand in Gods full power.  That our roots will be planted firmly in fertile soil.  Its time to step up and step out in Gods fullness.  This is were Acts 4 comes in.  This is going to be awesome to witness!

Acts 4: 29-31  Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. 30 Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” 31 After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.

I keep getting these words brought to my minds forefront:  This is it, this is NOW.  There is no more time.  God will not wait any longer.  God is calling his harvesters forth, God is calling his warriors forth.  Boldness, Love, do not fear, step up and grab Gods power, obedience, true repentance.  God wants us to step outside of our comfort zone.  Not to let fear bind us any longer so we can be used by God.  If we as a church, as individuals do not step up and out we are not being obedient.  We are telling God no.  God will not use someone who wont allow it.  God is calling his church to a true love of people.  God is calling his church to repent for a religious spirit.  Legalism and a religious spirit pushed people away.  This is not God’s love.

I would like to mention that not all who claim to be Christians are true Christians.  I encourage all who believe in God, (or even those who don’t believe) to invite him into your heart or rededicate your life to him.  Take an inventory of your life and repent of the sins and ask God to guide your feet, hands, mind and mouth.  Ask God to re-direct your feet into the path that he has for you.

with love,

L.
