Covering Prayer Father, It is my prayer that spirits of Satan not beguile those who read this teaching. Father, contend with those who would contend with them, allow nothing to block, control, distract, hinder or blind them from understanding what is written herein. Bind and separate each of them from the power of each and every spirit and cause them to be inoperative and inactive so they cannot operate and link up and empower one another. Father, let Your peoples minds be opened greatly by the power of Your anointing so The Holy Spirit can reveal and teach truth and bring conviction where necessary as they read. Father, enable them to have open hearts so that they may receive the truth and walk in paths of righteousness. Protect them from the enemy snatching away the Word that is sown in their hearts and let Your Word accomplish the purpose for which it has been sent. Thank you for imparting to them Your might in their inner man. All Honor all Glory and all Power belongs to You, In Jesus name Amen.
_______________________________________________________ Introduction Today as in the time of the apostles there is a need to discern and correct false signs and wonders for as Jesus said that in the last days there would be those who would manifest “great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect” (Matthew 24:24) and recall these false Christ’s are empowered by the working of Satan with “all power, signs and lying wonders.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9) Jesus constantly spoke against seeking after signs and wonders as evidence of His power as signs and wonders allure and appeal to the flesh. Recall, instead of satisfying them with signs and wonders He directed them to the sign of Jonah’s three days and nights in the belly of the whale. In other words, the dying to self and the living of the resurrected life and this was a sign of His death and resurrection power (Matthew 12:38-39) and a type of His life. In this He teaches us that His power is made available to anyone who is prepared to live the crucified life but it is not for soulish satisfaction or to be demonstrated to appeal to the flesh. Any spiritual thing and or spiritual gifts are for spiritual edification and the building up of the Body of Christ. Scripture teaches us that any Spiritual things such as a sign or wonder are for the Body to come to maturity into the image and likeness of Jesus who laid down His life for her church so she could become pure and without spot and blemish in His sight (Ephesians 4:7-16, 5:27); signs and wonders are not for fleshly desires or appeal or to promote lust and greed. As written and clearly outlined in 1 Corinthians 12 the spiritual callings and gifts are “manifestations” of the Spirit, or literally, the outflow from the Spirit, and again Paul said that these spiritual gifts have been given to the body and are of The Spirit of God Himself for the edifying and building up of His body to bring her to be without spot and blemish. Because Satan seeks to have a type of counterfeit of the works of God and has the power to create supernatural signs and wonders and because people are inclined to respond in the natural realm to what appeals to the fleshly senses we have to test and approve all things and discern between spirits of
truth and false. We cannot accept everything as sent from the throne room of Yahweh as the devil is alive and doing well and we are at war. Therefore, with the power of The Spirit of the gift of â€œdiscerning of spiritsâ€? (1 Corinthians 12:10) and dividing with the truth by The Word demons have to be identified in our life and the life of the works of the Church. If not, they will fortify themselves to enhance their forces against us as the body and they will stay concealed when we choose to be blinded or fearful of their activity. Without being conscious that works of darkness are in and over the church it is easy for the kingdom of darkness to infiltrate their false signs as true. We have to study the Word, walk in the light and apply it to ourselves to see whether we be in the faith or in heresy. Instruction in righteousness tells us to test and prove for ourselves all things (2 Corinthians 13:5) further we could become carriers of the false anointing and we will receive the consequence for working on the side of evil (Colossians 3:23-25; Matthew 7:21-23). Over the past few centuries there has been a restoration of truth to the Body of Christ and part of this has been the manifestation of the supernatural in signs and wonders as what occurred in the Book of Acts; however, this is not what is occurring today; for there is such a mixture of un-discerned powers with signs and wonders that are not even within the boundaries of the manifestations of The Spirit of Christ Jesus (1 Corinthians 12). For we see the type of workings of miracles do not line up with the overall works of miracles that Jesus or the Apostles manifested. Jesus and the Apostles and Disciples did not shake, they did not have gold dust, they did not have oil coming out of their skin, they did not have uncontrollable laughter, they did not have feathers appearing, they did not have manner the fairly floss type appearing as in meetings today, they did not have jewels appearing, they did not have fillings turning into gold they had none of these, nil. With all true there comes false to weaken the truth and with truth there will be a false that is so far removed from Spiritual callings and gifts and ministries that it is and will be accepted as truth as people are still allured to the flesh, ignorant of scripture and ignorant of the devil's devices. As they still carry the sins of their ancestors with the accompanying demonic spirits who are only too happy to play Holy Ghost and counterfeit His workings under the name of The Lord Jesus Christ.
I am writing this book not to name names personally or to judge Christian ministers but to write against the signs to expose the works of darkness that are another gospel that have bewitched the churches. So by exposing the false, names have to be named of those who I believe have unknowingly become deceived and transferred from His calling to this other gospel of signs and wonders of gold dust, oil, manna, feathers and jewels. Therefore, I have to expose that you might escape the demonic deception and receive deliverance of demons and have your church released from such witchcraft powers if you are having, advocating, agreeing or desiring these signs and wonders. I ask that you pray and even fast to seek Jesus about these movements in the world today and pray the following prayer as it will make room and will make way for Him to start demolishing the false you have accepted as true. It is my prayer that you will be set free from deception for deliverance and the spirits from this fortress of the kingdom of darkness to be taken to their place appointed of them. Yourself be set free from all damnable heresies that will release you from swift destruction. Prayerfully that the teaching may save your life in this one and the one to come. “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.” 2 Peter 2:1-22 10. and in all deceit of unrighteousness in those being lost, because they did not receive the love of the truth in order for them to be saved. 11. And because of this, God will send to them a working of error, for them to believe the lie,…” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 .
_______________________________________________________ Personal Prayer
Father, I ask because of the Blood of Jesus Christ that You bind still the connected and related spirits and hindering demons to the false and counterfeit in my life for a sovereign time until I can discern truth so as to have this totally uprooted out of my life. Lord Jesus, where I am bewitched take the scales away from my eyes, bind and break all power of these spirits and all curses and lead me into all truth. Open my heart and mind greatly to all lies and deception associated to the false and counterfeit in my life. I ask that You would give me the way out, the truth, the discernment of spirits, the Scriptures, the revelation, the keys and necessary anointing and heart to come into the light. I ask You also to lead me in the way everlasting so as to uproot the gods and sins of my ancestors that are hidden and still remain in and over my life. Father, where there is anything in my heart that hinders me from seeing the false and counterfeit that I am involved in or have accepted bring this into Your light so I can discern all roots. Dismantle and demolish all things that would block, hinder and stop me seeing the truth of the false and counterfeit and from seeing truth from deception. Father, make room make way for the King of Glory and Grace and lead me in the way everlasting, be strong My Father in the strength of Your might. In Jesus Name, Amen.
What Strange gods Be in Thee
“…hearken unto me; There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god…”
Psalm 81:8-12 KJ
Gold dust, precious jewels, oil upon and continuously on the palms of the people’s hand and on the souls of the feet and running down the wall, guided and third heaven visits, chariot rides, feathers appearing, uncontrollable laughter and crying, shaking, head or body vibrating, involuntary arm and leg movements or jerking, making animal noises and hearing musical instruments and birds and thunder, intense heat and drunken stupor in the name of ‘the glory of God’ and ‘fire of The Holy Spirit’ are some of the strange phenomena’s the churches all over the world are not discerning as false and are believing all to be sent from the throne room of Yahweh. Scriptures does not teach any of these types of manifestations in the life of Jesus our Rabbi, or in the life of the Apostles or other disciples or of the saints of old so we are looking at new phenomena, a false phenomenon. “Hear O Israel… [Hear O church – words in brackets here mine] …hearken unto me; There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god…” Exodus 32:5 KJ (Please read appendix 4) Do you recall when Moses delayed to come down from the mountain how the people made a calf of gold (Exodus 32:1-4, 7)? Yes. Remember they had corrupted themselves because they worshiped it and sacrificed unto it, and they said it was what brought them out of Egypt (Exodus 32:7-8) not Yahweh. “When Aaron saw it he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, tomorrow is a feast to the Lord.” Exodus 32:5 They worshiped and they celebrated before this image, this false god thinking that they were honoring Yahweh. Do you think they knew enough to the Word of God? No, there was no Torah written or Ten Commandments
written and it is no different today if you do not know the Word you will believe those in authority and follow them like they followed Aaron. We cannot protect ourselves from error if we do not seek Jesus Himself for the truth if we do not study for ourselves under His anointing. Consider asking yourself do you really know enough of the Word of God to guard your heart against false revivals and signs? Do you think of reading what is written against these bizarre manifestations to weigh up what you do know about Scriptures? Or do you say “I’m not reading anything against these revivals healing meetings.” “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking…” 1 Peter 5:8 KJ I ask you, would you ask yourself if the revivals are truly Scriptural to receive and to engage in such worship or are you like those in the days of Aaron and attend, dance and worship as unto The Lord without question. Remember again when Aaron saw the golden calf he said “tomorrow is a feast to the Lord.” (Exodus 32:5) Consider again are you like Aaron and those with him, are you assuming these healing meetings with these and or any signs and phenomena are worship as unto the Lord? Are you engaging in such worship and reveling like those with Aaron without first testing and approving with the Word and The Spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:21-22)? Or is it that Jesus delays in your life to come down the mountain so you play? Is it that Jesus delays in your life for spiritual promotion and ministry opportunity so you go to meetings that offer transference of their promotion and ministry gifting with a download, a quick work which when you know truth it is all contrary to Scripture, so contrary to scripture and apostolic teaching. When reading this account, we see that Moses was angered at their revelry and he took the calf and burnt it in the fire and ground it to powder and strewed it upon the water and made the children of Israel drink of it (Exodus 32:20). Gold dust then has its associations with judgment, not blessing, so given that this is the only reference in scripture, these phenomena cannot be accepted as being sent from The True and Living God. Every spiritual principle in the Word is endorsed by two or three accounts; there must be two or three witnesses in the Word for it to be valid. Even if the book of Acts is still being 12
written Acts is witnessed in The Old Testament. To also make mention The Holy Spirit did not do in Acts what these revivals with signs and wonders did. (See Appendix 8) People in the Catholic arena’s are experiencing their rosary beads turning to gold, with this oil also on the walls and on their hands. Now we know that the teachings within the Roman Catholic theology is steeped in idolatry, heresy and error and perversion of the Gospel; thus spiritual doors of Divination and Witchcraft are already open for these false signs to move freely in and out. When we read His Word it testifies against the sign and wonder anyway of gold dust, and consider how could it be Him when it is a source of greed and it appeals to the flesh and is asphalt on the streets of heaven. “The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honey comb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.” Psalm 19:9-11 “Therefore I love thy commandments above gold, yea, above fine gold.” Psalm 119:127 Gold dust is a false sign and wonder; it is the glitter of Babylon coming to the Apostate Church of the last days. The devils are telling you it is God’s glory, but this is not the manner in which God reveals His glory. His character is His glory and His character is all throughout the Word written in His laws. (See appendix 5) The Father and Jesus Christ ask us to go to His Word to learn of them to see their glory and to learn how to receive and how to become mature and how to be placed into ministry (2 Timothy 3:16-17). They do not ask us to go to a meeting of gold dust, oil, jewels, feathers and manna to see the glory of God or to receive a transferable anointing for a call and ordination or gifts or ministries. Never are we to seek or follow after signs especially gold dust or even to seek guided visits to heaven, none of the apostles or disciples sought after these things neither did they use those such signs as tools of evangelism and neither is that how The Word defines the convicting work of The Spirit of Christ Jesus to sinners who need a Savior.
This is not the way Jesus gives a personal invitation to serve Him as a God or believe in Him as a God, gold dust, oil or any of these supernatural signs does not convict one of the realities of their sin condition. Supernatural sign of tongues is for the unbeliever yet that in itself will not bring someone into Kingdom living or have them born again neither will someone coming back from the dead as Jesus declared in Luke 16:30-31. We are to know Him and His ways, we are called to seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and most importantly to be walking in such a way so that we can discern the genuine from the false with a love of the truth. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness…” Matthew 6:33 KJ “That is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10. And with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12. In order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 “You shall walk after the Lord your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice, and you shall serve him and cleave to him.” Deuteronomy 13:4 Yahweh has always asked us to know Him and to know what He requires of us and this is written in His Word. His Word reveals how we are given the calling of Apostle or a Prophet or Pastor or how the gift of healing and miraculous signs are distributed. Recall the law of first mention, this
causes us to understand Truth. As people who live in the Kingdom under His jurisdiction and under His laws, we should be able to approve firstly from the scriptures what is correct doctrine and what aligns with His principles of operation in the manifestation and distribution of His power before we attend and accept any meeting and revival or any sign or wonder. The spirits of Satan give truth but twist it in deceptive teachings as they rely on the believer’s ignorance of Scripture. This is seen in the false sign of manna from heaven. Do you know if manner appeared like white flakes or puffed up small pieces of bread or like white fairy floss in the wilderness? 14
It did not appear like any of those but in these meetings and revival meetings the manna is appearing like white fairy floss. But in scripture the manna was like seeds of coriander (Exodus 16:31) seeds that they had to collect and grind in order to make the break/cakes to eat. The seed had to be ground to make bread (Numbers 11:7-8) and this represented a sign that pointed to “Messiah” who was to come. This sign was a symbolic sign of Christ who was to suffer and die for our atonement and for the forgiveness of sins as he was to be scourged and go to a cross for our redemption. The white striped seeds represented the pure sinless Savior (Exodus 16:4) and these seeds looked like the coriander seed so the strips represented the stripes He would receive on His back. Jesus was a picture of the manna of old and it was given to them as a sign pointing to their Messiah to come. The entire sign represented Jesus Christ the bread of Life, the bread that came down from Heaven and the bread born in the house of bread being Bethlehem – law of three witnesses. The manna in the wilderness was given for a practical purpose and a need, it was not given to excite the senses of man like gold dust and jewels, feathers and oil do. Recall the oil of old “shows the beauty of God’s anointing in the anointing oil prepared for the tabernacles in the wilderness. This anointing oil was absolutely of the purest form. It was four parts expensive fragrance and one part olive oil. It had to be exact and could never touch someone unclean. The four parts of fragrance were a type of the person of the pre-incarnate Christ and only one part oil. The oil had one purpose and it was to unite and deliver the fragrance. In other words, the anointing is always four parts Christ and one part Spirit. We are anointed to make known Jesus Christ and never to manifest flesh. At any point or time when the flesh is more visible than the fragrance of Jesus Christ, strange fire has appeared. It may seem innocent at the beginning, but it is always destructive.” 1. [Chambers, 2013:1] And think about it what does all this strange fire represent of gold dust, oil, feathers and jewels and what sign does it point to and what spiritual benefit is it to build the church convict her of sin or to feed her to go from glory to glory? The manna you see today is not Passover bread or wilderness manna or a sign of the bread of heaven or angel food but it is a false sign and wonder. Again ignorance of scripture enables the kingdom of darkness to integrate their deception so as to take up occupation in His temple – your body and the body of Christ to seat themselves in and over the church so as to bring in more
demonic power and deception and devastation and to stop a possible true move of God. Gold was only used in the Temple as a representation of heavenly things, it was not meant to convey that God would manifest His glory in actual earthly gold, but that His Divine nature which we should seek firstly in our lives is like gold in its value and in its eternal quality. “Don’t you think that gold dust manifested on your flesh is a poor substitute of His glory rather than the true “gold” of the divine nature worked out in our life? Something that is showy but transitory compared to that which is eternal and that secures for us an entrance into His glorious kingdom is to be sought after by us going from glory to glory.” 2. His character is seen by His laws and His laws reveal His character and this is His glory not flakes of glitter or gold on your body or on the floor or on your bible “Wake up oh sleeper and listen as one being taught.” Every sign in scripture had a purpose and we are required to evaluate and understand Yahweh’s purpose in giving them. We are to learn of the reasons behind His manifestations of power. We have to know the Word as the devils twist the meanings of these signs and wonders to justify their teachings and counterfeit works and their strange fire of false signs and wonders. Unless you understand scriptural symbolism and the principals involved and unless you know the teachings and the Hebrew understanding of these events it is so easy to become deceived by seducing spirits who twist the truth to validate these new expressions of the glory of a “Glory Invasion” 3. [Herzog, 2007: 14] In occult practices of sorcery, the occult anointing is transferred by touching the dead person’s body or by the dying person touching the other person’s body to impart their demonic anointing before they die this is not Scriptural. David Herzog visited Ruth Heflin’s dead body to receive a double portion anointing for signs and wonders of the glory i.e. gold dust! Again unless you understand the teaching about how Elisha received Elijah’s mantle and how he was blessed with a double portion of his Spirit it seems so simple to receive David Herzog’s testimony of having received Ruth Heflin’s mantle of signs and wonders through her dead body. “And it happened, when they were crossing, Elijah said to Elisha, Ask what I shall do for you before I’m taken from you. And Elisha 16
said, Then let there now be a double mouth of your spirit on me. 10. And he said, you have asked a hard thing, if you shall see me taken from you, it shall be so to you, and if not, it shall not be. 11. And it happened, as they were going on and speaking, behold, a chariot of fire and horses of fire came, and they separated between them both, and Elijah went up in a tempest to Heaven. 13. And he lifted up the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and turned back and stood on the lip of the Jordan.” 2 Kings 2:9-11, 13 The enemy has the power to counterfeit almost everything of Yahweh but what he cannot and will not counterfeit is a life manifesting the divine nature of God. But his crafted perversion of scripture is nothing for their skill so it is easy to take their rationale of the signs at revivals referred to as the fullness of the glory, the glory manifested in “the glory zone” [Herzog, 2007:23] 4. These demons are revealing in the nations around the world saying that “God wants a convergence of anointings that will cause one big explosion of His glory” 5. [Herzog, 2007:16] David Herzog is a disciple of Ruth Heflin (please see appendix 1) and believes he has received a portion of her ‘spirit.’ He said he was instructed by “The Lord’ within to go to Virginia and make a point of contact with her dead body and that he would receive a double portion of her ‘anointing,’ and this is what is practiced in witchcraft. He writes that his new covenant partners have received a mighty impartation and inheritance from Ruth and that is another reason why God sent him and his wife to Virginia as out of this came these two new “glory friends” 6. [Herzog, 2007:164-165] Msahesh and Bonnie Chavda. These ‘new waves’ of signs and wonders are awakening an invasion of the realm of darkness not the realm of the Kingdom of Light as they are not moves of The King of Glory for they are not His truth or His works but that of himself the Prince of the power of the air, the father of lies they are works of high levels witchcraft and wizardry and that of alchemy. “The rod of turning metals into gold operates through money alchemy. In 33 degree of Freemasonry they learn to do that. They are magicians and alchemists and can physically do it. They can turn metal fillings into gold fillings.” 7. [Kitchen, 2006:32] rd
It is as plain and as simple as this: anything that you cannot find in scripture is a “doctrine of devils.” And we cannot find these bizarre manifestations and signs in the Word. “For I am the Lord, I change not.”
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 “Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: so that the man of God may be perfect, fully furnished for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17 It is wise to be humble and listen with a teachable spirit and not go in the way of the proud who declares “they are the ones who are deceived not me.” The proud declares to themselves that anything written against a revival meeting where the supernatural is manifest has to be lies. But the enemy is always at work to immobilize the church and the people in the church and he will immobilize you and or your church if you are an Apostle or Pastor once you accept unscriptural manifestations as this will give them an advantage and an open door or a wider door to bring destruction. Truth is, once the door is open they will bring in their furniture (deception) and more furniture (heresy) and more furniture (error) until they have hung the curtains and put up the blinds so that your conscience is so seared that you will accept all sorts of bizarre manifestations as coming from Almighty God and the anointing power of the Holy Spirit. Don’t be deceived by the comments or your thoughts “Oh well they are coming closer to Jesus” or “they are getting blessed”! No they are getting loaded with demons that will sooner or later draw them away from Jesus and the truth and bring in more heresy and error and will bring confusion and will give a spiritual veneer; further they will block true spiritual growth and block and limit ministry for they are controlling spirits in nature. It is well known that counterfeit healings do not last and or some other infirmity comes upon the person as the ruling strongman moves the spirit associated to another area of the body or commands it to stop functioning in that area of the body. If you log onto this site www.bible.ca/tongues-kundalinishakers-charismatics.htm you will read Masters in the Eastern Religion and the Guru’s have these types of gifts and have been healing instantly for centuries. 18
Healing signs or miracles is not the gauge of truth it is not the gauge of fruit what we are to judge with. It is the bible we gauge with seeing biblical patterns and various scriptures with the understanding of sound doctrines (2 Timothy 1:13, 3:14, 4:3).
They Will Come and Deceive Many
“And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.” Matthew 24:11 KJ
You have to be able to prove by scripture the signs and manifestations seen at these meetings such as the transferable anointing, uncontrollable or constant laughing, physical jerks of the body, hands shaking rapidly, body shaking, the making of animal sounds, electricity like fire going through the body, vibrating, gold dust, gold teeth, precious jewels feathers, manna found on the floor and any other such supernatural things. They cannot be all grouped under the word “signs” or accepted as “signs” or miracles or as a sign and a wonder before you know the principles of God in the manifestation of signs and wonders. In Scripture these are the signs they heard and saw in Acts and this brings forth and establishes a boundary for signs. “For the multitudes with one accord gave heed to what was said by Phillip, when they heard him and saw the signs which he did. 7. For unclean spirits came out of many who were possessed, crying with a loud voice; and many who were paralyzed or lame were healed.” Acts 8:6-7 Please read again at what are the signs the Word writes about in Acts 8:6-7 – unclean spirits were cast out, paralyzed or lame people walked, not gold dust, oil, feather or jewels appearing out of a supernatural realm. Miracles signs and wonders came from the natural to be supernatural. If you are not familiar with the Biblical text of signs and wonders look into these listed below and let the scriptures and The Holy Spirit lead you to other scriptures to get an understanding of the principals involved; and remember you cannot build a doctrine or an understanding on one scripture alone and or one sign or miracle alone. Further, miracles a sign, wonders prove the supernatural but does not mean it is a true sign from Yahweh. Angels ascending and descending of Jacobs ladder
“So Jacob’s dream about the ladder is an allegory of the second coming of Christ. Jesus is our access into the heavenlies by His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension; for when He ascended He sent His Spirit into our hearts so we can enter the access that He promised us (Ephesians. 2:14-18). Jesus is the ‘Gate of Heaven”: John 10:9, says “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” Jesus is the stone that Jacob anointed: Isaiah. 28:16, says “Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation; he that believeth shall not make haste. Not only is Jesus the foundation stone, but He is the Head stone: Psalms. 118:22, says “The stone which the builders refused I become the head stone of the corner.” Jesus is the stone that’s going to defeat the kingdom of the beast and reign forever (Daniel. 2:32-44). When Jesus returns we must not be asleep as Jacob was: Matthew. 24:42, says “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.” Jesus will come as thief in the night on those that are not aware: 1 Thessalonians. 5:4-8, says “But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore, let us not sleep as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep, sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.” Now this is not talking about physical sleep, but spiritual sleep. http://adbookeronline.com/id16.html Genesis 28:12 The rod turning into a serpent in front of Pharaoh by Moses and it devouring their serpent; the ten plagues of signs and wonders Studies reveal that this represents Yahweh’s complete authority over all the gods for it was known by those in Egypt that a greater god could devour their own magic or out do their magic; Therefore, Yahweh willed that Pharaoh knew He was the God above gods so by that demonstration of power Yahweh declared you shall know that I Am and that I Am Yahweh the God above all gods. (Exodus 7:17) The ten plagues also attacked 10 of their deities, the gods they served thus revealing Yahweh One True Living God to be the Greater God over all them. Exodus 7, 8, 9, 10, 11:1-10 The manna coming from heaven This I have taught about see page 14 manner here were seeds; a probability of the Hebrews having them amongst their belonging when 21
they left Egypt. Same type of miracle as in the loaves and fishes that were multiplied by Jesus to feed the five and the seven thousand. Exodus 16:31 The rock producing water in the wilderness The rock refers to Christ as the Rock that provides food and water for salvation, safety, security and even judgment. Various scriptures refer to Rock that makes witness to more than the three-fold. Jesus The Rock, His work is perfect, For all His ways are just; A God of faithfulness and without injustice, Righteous and upright is He. Deuteronomy 32:4. Paul refers to Rock of Salvation as Christ from which waters sprang for Moses at Sinai, who all drank the same spiritual drink for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them and again this Rock was Jesus Christ 1 Corinthians 10:4. Exodus 17:6 The walls of Jericho falling down with the shout of millions of Hebrew people Joshua 6 Samson killing a thousand with a donkeyâ€™s jawbone Judges 15:16 Water coming out of a hollow place for Samson Judges 15:19 Samson lifting the gates of a city and destroying the false temple by pushing down the pillars Judges 16:1-3; 16:30 Elijahâ€™s prayer of no rain for three years and six months and raven bringing him food 1 Kings 17:1-5 The widows oil multiplying as Elijah declared by The Spirit 1 Kings 17:8-16 Elijah outrunning a chariot 1 Kings 18:45-46 Elijah taken up in a chariot of fire 2 Kings 2:11
The man coming back to life after being placed on Elisha’s dead bones 2 Kings 13:21 Isaiah walking naked and this is not in the nude but less the sackcloth and he was barefoot three years for a sign and wonder upon Egypt and upon Ethiopia. Isaiah put off the outer sackcloth leaving on the tunic or inner vest as a sign to show Egypt would be stripped of its possessions; the very dress of Isaiah was a silent exhortation to repentance. Isaiah 20:2-3 Ezekiel being transported and flesh returning on dry bones Ezekiel 37:1-10 The five loaves and two fish multiplying for thousands of people Matthew 14:19-21 Jesus walking on water and Peter walking on water Matthew 14:25-29 The coin in the fish’s mouth to pay the taxes Matthew 17:27 The fig tree that Jesus cursed to wither and it died Matthew 21:19 Jesus speaking to the wind and the waves of a storm to cease Mark 4:39 The water made into wine John 2:9 The raising of Lazarus from the dead and others John 12:1 Luke 8:41-42 Jesus appearing in the midst of a room with locked doors John 20:19 Paul’s healing authority in prayer over handkerchiefs and healing coming when his shadow passed Acts 19:11-12; 5:15 Phillip being transported from one town to another Acts 8:39-40 23
Enoch lifted up or ascended in front of people Hebrews 11:5 Nation to rise against nation, famines, earthquakes, tribulation and hated for the being of the faith, false prophets to arise, lawlessness increased and love growing cold Matthew 24:7-12 You only have to Google the above signs and wonders and miracles to find their relevance and scriptural applications to other accounts to see that they bear more than the three-fold witness. Signs and wonders must validate and fulfill the scriptures; teach biblical principles plus they must have confirmation and endorsement of the Word and The Word Himself; they must be outlined or prophesied beforehand in the Old Testament; signs wonders miracles must be able to bear witness to progressive revelation (see page 8788). And remember, the New Testament gives the reoccurring truth of the Old Testament therefore supernatural phenomena always is to be verified with other scriptures. They all have to be according to the pattern of The Word and the New will point to the laws and precepts upon which works of miracles signs and wonders are performed and released. Signs in scripture are not always literal as those above but can be word pictures to bring forth a teaching or a principle or a spiritual truth and or both. Fire is not only literal but it is also used as a word picture: “Do not put out the Spirits fire.” “… for God is a consuming fire…”
1 Thessalonians 5:19 Hebrews 12:29
The Spirit of Fire in Isaiah 4:4 is as a word picture and Matthew 3:11 of the baptism of fire is a fire of judgment or a reference to Sheol. The Spirit of Fire is used as a word picture of the Holy Spirit of His work of conviction of sin or His continuous conviction until we are willing to face our sin that we have become comfortable with. This is the burning of the Spirit within the heart to lead us to repentance. Word pictures are understood by the Hebrews of Old and of today and The Teacher Himself taught biblical symbolism and word pictures to teach us His truth. Ray Prichard writes this: “God sent the “tongues of fire” on the day of Pentecost as a sign that He was about to pour out the Holy Spirit in a new and powerful way. Just as the fiery pillar represented God’s personal presence with His people, the Holy Spirit takes up residence in all believers. But now God’s presence will be personal and individual-thus the “tongues of fire” rested on 24
each person individually. Whereas God’s presence came to the nation as a whole in the Old Testament, today each believer has the great privilege of having the personal presence of God through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. And just as the fiery pillar gave clear direction outwardly, even so the Holy Spirit gives each believer inward direction.” 1. [Prichard, 2007:110-111] But recall fire was witness in the Old it consumed offerings (Leviticus 9:24). When we consider “Say to this mountain be thou removed and cast into the sea.” Matthew 17:20 KJ It does not mean that we can move a literal mountain of dirt and rock and have it cast into the sea by literally speaking to it, it is a word picture. This again is how Rabbis taught and still do teach. However what is written on cloven tongues of fire (Acts 2:2-3) and a fiery pillar (Exodus 13:21) and the burning bush that Moses saw (Exodus 3:15) were literal, but they all pointed to truths to come or were prophetic in nature and held eternal value. Does gold dust, feathers, jewels or oil? Again we need to study the Word with an understanding of Hebraic customs and culture and symbolism and biblical principles. We have to ask for a love of the truth and a desire to study and search the scriptures so as to discern truth from error. If we do this it will keep us from much deception and preserve us from not inheriting the Kingdom of God (2 Thessalonians 2:10). In Galatians 5:19 heresy is considered as a sin of the flesh or walking in the flesh. If rebellion is equated with witchcraft and stubbornness with idolatry and seen as transgression, then being in heresy is also seen as a transgression. Recall when walking in the flesh we come under the law and or the condemnation of the law (Romans 1:18; 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12; 2 Peter 2:13-14; 1 Timothy 1:9-11) and this is why demons attach themselves to heresy error and perversion of the gospel “you accept another Jesus and receive another spirit and accept this readily.” 2 Corinthians 11:4 “you depart from the truth of the faith to deceiving spirits and teachings of demons.” (1 Timothy 4:1-2) Before you accept spiritual phenomena you need to have a working knowledge of the scripture and of the scriptural names and ministry of The Holy Ghost. By not having knowledge of His Name His Power His Anointing His intercession and His gifts with fruit in your life you will receive the false as being genuine and on the other end of the scale your faith may end up shipwrecked. 25
We have to stay within the boundaries of the Word written in the 66 books given. If Yahweh wanted us to have the book of Enoch or the book of Thomas we would have it in our cannon today. But we have not so we have to trust that the boundaries given to us were His Sovereign act and stay with what is written in what we read in Old and New Testaments regardless how they are being perverted in this day by the modern day versions. Therefore, these Scriptures then establish a working boundary and within this they direct us to The Holy Spirit and His manifestations of prophecy dreams and visions (Joel 2:28). Even Jesus’ signs that He did validated and fulfilled the scriptures written of Him. The false today have an entirely different nature of what has happened in the days of old and New Testament times, therefore they only validate and fulfill what is written of the false that will arise in these days (Matthew 24:7-12, 24; Isaiah 56:11). I do not believe His work is in manifestations of laughing uncontrollably or Him causing gold dust or oil or feathers or jewels appear or Him barking or crowing or making other animal noises; or Him causing us to vibrate or with the head violently shaking or our head shaking or any type of involuntary shaking. Win Worley writes in Proper Names of Demons that these particular manifestations identify mind control spirits “Artysee, Artize and Artyza” as they cause bodily shaking and cause the hand to flicker or shake fast.” 2. [Worley, 1996:17] We have to go to the Word and stop believing that the Prophet, the Teacher the Pastor the Evangelist has it all correct. We cannot believe every revival and every sign and wonder is sent from the throne room of God. Just think about all the different denominations each with their own doctrines to match and they are all convinced they hold a fuller or more accurate measure of the truth when they all nullify the truth in some form or another and they venerate and practice Christmas Easter and other pagan festivals rather than the honoring or celebrating any appointed times of Yahweh. We are all subject to the demonic and to deception we are carnal and carnal enough to misunderstand a prophetic word spoken or a message from God or a dream and none of us are without demons or their influence. No one is the walking Messiah or walking talking Holy Ghosts. We, the demons and sinful men and women are all in the church as there are tares with the wheat, leaven in the dough and birds nesting in the mustard tree and they have their seat in the church. Therefore, we have to study for our own selves and by this we are obeying the instruction of righteousness to study to show ourselves approved workmen (2 Timothy 2:15).
I will write this point throughout this teaching often – to test to prove; we need to test and approve and discern all things all meetings all teachings all prophetic words all angelic encounters all visits to the third heaven all signs and wonders and all healings against The Word “The Spirit and The Word must bear witness.” We do not test anything by a person’s testimony or an isolated Scripture or by a well-known Television Minister who says or confirms it to be true or a true move of God. God will test us; God will send and allow a work of delusion of signs and wonders to judge the heart and these tests are according to what Scripture already writes not what is a new phenomenon or a new doctrine of teaching or a new Bible. “If a prophet arises among you, or a dreamer of dreams and gives you a sign or a wonder…you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or to that dreamer of dreams; for the Lord your God is testing you, to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.” Deuteronomy 13:1, 3 “Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false…because they refused to love the truth.” 2 Thessalonians 2:11, 10 Consider the above scriptures again as the reality is: God does allow delusion and God does test the heart in this and we ourselves need to discern ourselves to see whether we be in the faith honoring God and His Word above people places and things. In conclusion listen in your heart to what Pastor Joseph Chambers writes “Biblical signs and wonders are a constant fact from Genesis to Revelation. You cannot believe the bible and not believe that God does supernatural things. But Satan has been and still is on a campaign to create a false imitation of God’s great signs and wonders so that men will reject the real. False signs and wonders have never been so plentiful. From the deceiving apparitions of Mary, the Lord’s mother to the Charismatic gold dust and angel feathers, it’s Lucifer’s last ditch crusade to get his Anti-Christ kingdom ready. Satan has got to have a whore church ready when the Rapture occurs. Immediately after the saints are gone his religious church of the devil will ride the False Prophets to woo the world for the New World Order. Satan is counting on the false church to help him fool the world into believing he is the true god. It’s hard to grasp but the church world will soon accept the devil as their god. They have already accepted many things that have accepted them in this direction.” 3. [Chambers, 2010:1] 27
I want to add here that with any ministry Preacher or Teacher I reference or quote it is not about the minister whether he or she is 100% correct in all their overall theology or doctrines or denomination; it is the message intended in their writings that I am bringing forth and or getting across to teach the reader and or my audience. Therefore, do not throw out the baby with the bath water for I believe we all have heresy and error. Yet we all will to honor His truth by our understanding of doctrine theology and The Word. (See appendix 7)
A Doer of The Word
‘that day’ many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we preach in our name, didn’t we cast out devils in you name, and do many great things in your name?’ Then I shall tell them plainly, ‘I have never known you. Go away, from me, you have worked on the side of evil!’” Matthew 7:21-23 Phillips Modern English
We read: “straight is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:14 KJ We read: “it is not everyone who keeps saying to me ‘Lord, Lord’ who will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but the man who actually does my Heavenly father’s will.’ “In ‘that day’ many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we preach in you name, didn’t we cast out devils in you name, and do many great things in you name?’ Then I shall tell them plainly, ‘I have never known you. Go away, from me, you have worked on the side of evil!’” Matthew 7:21-23 Phillips Modern English Three times in different scriptures it is written “be not deceived” and recall deceive, deceive and deceive is in the concordance warning us of deception. The Father warns us about the last days of great deception, about great lying signs and wonders – therefore we have to test and approve. This is as much as a command as thou shall not kill, thou shall not seek after wizards to go a whoring after them and thou shall not bow down to graven images of the heaven above or the ground below and worship them. There are various transgressions for holding, promoting and going to false revivals and accepting and receiving false signs and wonders and if you are a Pastor there are other transgressions for bringing your flock under the false in whatever form of agreement you are in. Recall what sin is: 29
“…sin is the transgression of the law,”
1 John 3:4
Recall that transgression is disobedience: “the ruler of the authority of the air, the spirit now working in the sons of disobedience…” Ephesians 2:2 Please remember what you have read – that the spirits of Satan work in us sons or daughters who disobey laws of God and or instructions of righteousness and or commands of God as they get to hold ground in that specific area of disobedience. We are commanded to obey His laws or we are as some versions translate “lawless” as “workers of iniquity” or “evil doers” or “those who work on the side of evil” (Matthew 7:21-23). Therefore, if we are always disobeying a specific sin we are considered as sons and or daughters of disobedience (Ephesians 2:2) and cursed children (2 Peter 2:14). A measure of disobedience is simply not obeying the instruction to test and approve everything as to whether it is either true or false and to not obey the instruction to have a desire to love the truth or to study and prove what the will of God is concerning these particular types of signs and wonders. It is our Fathers will to test and approve therefore when we disobey and disobey the instruction “be not deceived” it falls in the category of idolatry as it is the result of having other things of importance set up in our heart which obstructs us from being guided by the truth. I want to emphasize the need to obey the instruction manual and I want to drive this truth out there to test and approve to study to show yourself approved and make your calling and election sure by obedience in general. Why? Recall there are five wise virgins and five foolish virgins (Matthew 25:1) and these two women are symbolic of two churches. One the true church and the other the false church yet both are the church of Spirit sealed Christians. We see the false does many works of power in the name of The Lord Jesus Christ but it is this church or person within that church who He says to “I never knew you … you have worked on the side of evil” (Matthew 7:22-23) and it can be said as it appears that half the church is working on the side of evil as half of ten is five. “All who listen to my instructions and follow them are wise, like a man who builds his house on solid rock.” Matthew 7:24 30
This is why you personally need to continuously know His teaching or you will receive these spirits (2 Corinthians 11:4; Colossians 3:23-25) and will be working on the side of evil. Not to mention you will get carried away with every wind of doctrine (Ephesians 4:14; 2 Peter 3:17) every wind of deceiving spirits of the false revivals false signs and wonders that are contrary to sound doctrine (1 Timothy 1:10) and you will be judged according to scripture for not discerning and obeying His will. “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit?” 1 Corinthians 6:19 “If any man defile the temple of God him shall God destroy for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.” 1 Corinthians 3:17 KJ Before you can be confident of accepting meetings with signs and wonders as being sent from Yahweh, the Spirit and the Word must bear witness, not just by discerning in your spirit. We cannot just ask Holy Ghost if a manifestation or a revival is true as it is a principle of His Word to allow The Spirit and the Word to bear witness. The knowledge of the doctrines laws truths and teaching of the Word is the basis that the Holy Ghost uses to bear witness in our spirit to guide us into all truth and especially the truth about any sign and wonder or manifestation on someone. We have to be a doer of the Word and to make sure of our election therefore we have to obey all of His instruction manual as “straight is the gate and narrow is the way.” (Matthew 7:14) So many times we fall into the snare of the fowler because of an incorrect understanding of scripture or doctrines or we have not set our love upon Him to live by The Word. Psalm 91 comes with conditions and when we do not meet the conditions evil will befall us. Recall Satan knew Psalm 91 and twisted it to try to bring Jesus out from under obedience (Matthew 4:5-10) this way he could have got legal grounds so evil could befall Him. Satan twisted subtly a truth with Eve “you will know good from evil” but the truth was “you will now know good and evil” not from. You may think you are obedient and you know the doctrines and you have been in the faith for many years but you still have to test and prove all things. The Spirit and the Word must bear witness for without the inspired Word of God all we have is human opinion and demonic deception. 31
“If you abide in My Word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32 “Sanctify them by Your truth, Your word is truth.”
To bring this truth again to your heart to test and approve all things (1 Thessalonians 5:21) and make sure of your election and in addition to bear fruit (John 15:18) consider the parable of the vineyard in Luke 13:6-9. Jesus had come to this man three years looking for fruit unto repentance but found none. This man had failed to tend the fig tree in his vineyard, failed to be diligent, failed to do the job that was required of him to be able to bear fruit. Why? Because he was lazy, slothful sat back and trusted the tree would – yes trusted the tree would look after itself so he did not receive the harvest the fig tree could have produced. He is no different to you and I if we do not obey the instructions of righteousness to test and approve; or if we do not work out our salvation with fear and trembling; or if we do not study to show ourselves approved; or if we do not press on to be found by Him without spot or blemish of a life of holiness and godliness; or if we do not allow The Word to sanctify us; or we just go to any meeting of signs and wonders; or if we just sit back and think we are safe because we go to church hear Christian TV listen to CD’s go to catch the fire meetings but never testing with our own personal study because we think the fig tree will look after itself; but the fig tree will not look after itself or produce the necessary good quality fruit. Therefore He will have to cut it down throw it into the fire so you may be as one of the five virgins who He says “depart from me I never knew you for you worked on the side of evil.” Further this judgment following may befall us: “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12. That they all Master might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 KJ
Truth is we are to love the truth and do it, we are to test and approve and if not we are in disobedience to this instruction in righteous living and we will open doors to devils. We have to do what the has intended us to do in order to bear much fruit so we are not as the disobedience sons or daughters who have allowed the spirit of this age – the spirits of Satan to be at work against us (Ephesians 2:2). Remember the wrath of God can come on you a child of disobedience and we see this above in 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 and as written in Ephesians 5:6. “Let no man deceive you with vain words; for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.” Ephesians 5:6 KJ Consider, if you will not listen He will leave you in your deception and in your false power that is really powerlessness deception. And I can assure you these devils will come in and out of playing Holy Ghost to torment, infirm, distort, divide, condemn, confuse and bring lustful desires. Just like Eve this snare will increase your grief and your groaning, and you will turn further away from the Truth than you are now. “Wake up oh sleeper from a slumbering spirit” for you will be held accountable for your personal life, and if you are a Pastor for what you allow against your flock not those from Toronto or Todd Bentley, David Herzog or Ruth Heflin or Patricia King or any of the others alike that are deceived and promoting these signs and wonders. It will be you who will be held accountable for your decision for not discerning for not testing and approving for not loving the truth and for not tending the fig tree to bear fruit and for not obeying other instructions in righteousness. To stress again, The Word warns us about false moves and teachers and teaches us that we need to know sound doctrine by study of His Word with the Teacher The Holy Ghost (1 John 2:27). Warning after warning after warning about the false in these last days, so we are without excuse we have to be a doer of The Word or deceived we will be. “I will cast you out of My sight, as I have cast out all your brothers, all the offspring of Ephraim.” Jeremiah 7:15 NASB “So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.” Revelation 3:16 NA
These false meeting always use words like “fire, fire, more Lord more, fill her Lord fill her, more more more. They are chanting and not using The Name of The Lord Jesus Christ. This brings the false lord, lying signs and wonders. The devil has power, and if you are not discerning or if you do not know truth or if you do not test a doctrine “for this cause you will receive a working of error.” Recall God will separate people who do not love The Truth, recall He came with a Sword not to bring peace. Jesus does not want a little leaven to leaven the lump He wants to lead us into all truth. These spirits know those of us who do not receive their false and counterfeit so they turn the minds of those deceived against us. Thus we become separated isolated and lied against, even shunned and certainly not taken seriously for our teachings. I’ve been asked to go to a Discipleship class! But we are to stand and know that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but the kingdom of darkness. We must pray for the release of where they are taken captive and their conscious seared. We must pray they receive a dream or a vision, and the spirits bound who have deceived them to believe the lies, error and the doctrines of devils.
Following the Glory
“For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14. No wonder, for Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 15. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.” 2 Corinthians 11:13-15
Many people are drawn to the supernatural, and it inspires them to give credence to the person performing these things. They assume firstly that the minister is a true servant of God and secondly that he has special anointing from God and therefore this person must be walking in holiness and close communion with Him. Being a chosen vessel and having been tested and tried in integrity and faithfulness, should be the mark of a servant of God, but it is not necessarily a qualification to operate in the supernatural. Note what Peter said after healing the lame man at the gate of the Temple: “…Men of Israel, why do you marvel at this? Or why do you look so intently at us as though by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk? 16. And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong…” Acts 3:12, 16 KJ Jesus said that many “will come in My Name” but recall to come in His name is to represent Him. Therefore, you have to know someone to represent them so others will know Him whose name you come in. Jesus also said that in that day they would say to Him, “have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name and done many wonders in Your Name?” (Matthew 7:15-23) But He declares to them He never knew them! Therefore, they did not know Him to represent Him, and they did not know the definition of what it means to come in His Name. These people that Jesus will disown and although they said they knew Him and performed many miraculous signs in His name were obviously not
doing His will (Matthew 7:21). Jesus declares they were practicing “lawlessness” (Matthew 7:23) and calls them false prophets (Mathew 7:15) but they think they are true prophets –“did we not.” They were not in right standing with Him but were in sin or working iniquity or in simple language working against the law for what is sin the transgression of the law (1 John 3:4). They were thinking they were working for Him. Look they became deceived somewhere down the track for they were called of Him but had failed the test to build their lives upon His Word. And this meant obedience and part of obedience is testing and approving teachings, doctrines and works of power, miracles signs and the wonders, doing all the Fathers will written throughout all the Bibles instructions in righteousness living – His laws that are His commandments. Unless we build our lives upon the Rock Christ Jesus, and He is the Word of God then, we will not stand the test in these days. Neither will any ministry stand by the manifestation of their display of power, signs and wonders. For it will be by the spiritual fruit that they will be judged. And spiritual spirit is judged by the measure of the eternal qualities of righteousness and holiness that it produces in people’s lives (Matthew 7:16-20). Fruit is outlined in Galatians 5:22-24: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” Galatians 5:22-24 Consider, is this the fruit these ministries are producing? Then consider how does fits of laughter measure up against self-control? Then do any of these signs and wonders contribute to producing these godly characteristics in the lives of those participating in them? Do they not have the effect of focusing people’s attention the gratification of their own desires? Do they actually excite the lusts of the flesh which we are to crucify? Jesus said that there would be false “Christ’s” and false “Apostles” coming in His name and it is not just someone who knowingly knows they are working on the side of evil or in a pseudo-Christian cult but a saint who is deceived under a false anointing. The Word Christ means “anointed one” so the false Christ’s are coming under a false anointing. A false Apostle is one which Jesus has not sent and the word Apostle means “one who is sent out.” So it is one whom He has not 36
commissioned to go working in the kingdom and we are seeing this in these meetings with the transference of anointing and calling for anyone and everyone to be as they are. When you are self-motivated by your own desires and wants of a call or a mantle or to operate in signs and wonders either set out in the boundaries of The Word or those the false meetings bring forth you will be demonically commissioned for it was not appointed to you by the correct scriptural commissioning. Antichrist is not necessarily against Christ as the name implies but it is rather ‘another Christ’ a counterfeit Christ. A counterfeit that is impersonating the genuine anointing from God “have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name and done many wonders in Your name.” (Matthew 7:15-23) Recall again – how do we know them – by their fruits. Paul classifies a worker in the kingdom as a false apostle because of his fleshly motives in 2 Corinthians 11:7-15. But a true apostle will reflect the righteousness, holiness, faithfulness and self-denial of the true Messiah and will allow the ongoing work of crucifying the lusts of the flesh. To add, today there are types of ministries that exhibit gain as though it were godliness by their works of their faith and their expensive clothes cars, houses, art, pets and so on (Isaiah 56:11). Yet this is not the life of a disciple of Christ or as one who serves in the Kingdom of God. I read in a message from the Prophet of Cradle of Hope in the Archives article “Repairer of the Breach.” 1. [www.cradleofhope.com] He had put the microphone down many a time to go to a Pastor and tell him he “should enjoy the kingdom he was building here on earth because it would be the only kingdom he would ever know.” 2. [Deckard: 2006:1]. As he said that churches are spending millions on buildings and edifices while millions are starving in third world countries. And they are not doing the ‘real’ work of the kingdom (Mathew 25:31-46). Truth is, the idols of the heart bind, and these join those of an evil and adulteress generation who seek a sign. Take heed lest you lose your crown, search the doctrines search the Truth and prove all things. The Kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Spirit; it is spiritual, not earthly and sensual and centered on the things of this life. “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33 37
It is not a demonstration of the gift of faith according to 1 Corinthians 12:9 to be able to believe for material things. The trophies in the hall of faith go to those who desired a “better heavenly country.” Whose lives were not centered in the things of this world but who for the cause of the kingdom to come were tempted, slain, mocked, scourged, slain and who wandered about in animal skin, destitute, afflicted, tormented, “of whom the world was not worthy.” (Hebrews 11:15-16, 32-38) Paul said, “For I consider the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory which shall be revealed in us.” Romans 8:18 The glory which shall be revealed IN us, as in future tense; the glory will be a reward for faithfulness in trials and tribulations and for submitting to Yahweh’s purpose in conforming us to the image of His Son, Jesus the true Messiah. “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son…Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.” Romans 8:29-30 He is going to impart His own glory to us and glorify us with the glory which He Himself has in the Father (John 17:20-26; Revelation 21:22-27). “Consider then is it not a poor substitute and imitation in this gold dust seen or what is being call the dust off the streets of gold of the eternal glory of the Father which those who by patient endurance in well doing shall inherit in that day as a reward of their labors for Him.” 3. You depart from the Word when your idols rule. Consider you are as guilty as the Pastor for bringing in an abomination in His house and Jesus will and does judge so that you are given over to delusion that you should believe a lie! “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders, 10. And with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion that they should
believe a lie, 12. That they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 NKJ Yahweh does use healings and miracles and various manifestations of His power to intervene in the physical realm and demonstrate the reality of His Person and His love and although it does lead people to believe in Him (Exodus 4:30-31) we must remember that true faith comes by hearing His Word (Romans 10:17; Hebrews 11:1-3) and the convicting work of The Spirit (John 16:8-11; Jeremiah 35:15; 1 John 1:8-10; 2 Corinthians 7:8-11). Signs and wonders validate God’s Word and are given as a confirmation and endorsement of the Word preached, but they are not intended to be an end in themselves or to be manifested independent of the Word. They are signs that will “follow” those who preach the Word according to the will of the Father (Mark 16:17; Hebrews 2:2-4). It is according to His will and according to what is already written for our edification and recall His boundaries are defined in The Word. “God also testifying with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will.” Hebrews 2:4 “And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16. He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. 17. These signs will accompany those who have believed: in my Name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18. They will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. Mark 16:15-18 NASB Recall Peter having been an eyewitness of the majesty of the glory of His power on the mount of Transfiguration. Rather than exhort the brethren on the basis of that testimony of His power he exhorted them that: “we have also a more sure word of prophecy; [The Word – the words in brackets here mine] whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 2 Peter1:19 KJ
So we read that he elevated the scriptures above the manifestation of God’s glory! God’s glory is the manifestation of His presence and this will be in accordance with His character and we know we see His character as it is written in His laws. When there is a manifestation of His power of His glory, it is according to His will so that His purposes may be accomplished, not for the sensation of the experience or for self-gratification or to make one feel good or have goose bumps and so on. Do not fear that you will miss a last day move of God, and remember you cannot attend any or all revivals with signs and wonders before discerning them; for recall we are to test and we are to keep back from every form of evil (1 Thessalonians 5:21-22) or we receive the evil. Church is not just going and sitting down once a week or is it going for a sign and a wonder because of humdrum boredom of church. We are to seek Him with our whole heart and be in relationship and remember the less we seek after Him and His ways the less of His glory and or His presence will be in our lives for the glory will depart therefore your church attendance will be hum drum boring. As it has been said before “Take a long hard look at yourself at the way you serve, worship and follow Him.” If you are enjoying your sin and independence apart from the law “seal the law among my disciples” (Isaiah 8:14-18) you will not be able to discern the manifestations of The Spirit. “When the gifts of the Holy Spirit occur they are “manifestations” or the shining out of His presence in and through an earthly vessel. It is an effulgence; a shining forth of the Spirit through the individual to build up the assembly spiritually, i.e. to edify others. Further revivals are to bring a deeper conviction of our sins and to cause us to seek after the Lord Jesus with a fresh desire and devotion to obey His laws, not to appeal to the senses; further it will neither be signs apart from those seen in Acts.” 3. [Hammond: 2009] A true manifestation of His presence will not be self-centered. There are nine (9) categories of the gifts listed; the signs in the present revival movements do not fit any of these categories as they are fleshly sensations that gratify the ego of man. Listen are the Leaders imparting gifts that destroy the devil at these revivals? The devil will not give any gift that destroys himself, 1 Corinthians 12 and 14 bring power of snakes and scorpions and deliverance 40
from deception. These churches works are not of The Spirit of God they appease the flesh and are sensual and demonic, entertainment, the glitter of Babylon. Jude identifies sensual people as “not having the Spirit” (Jude 19); and it can be said that those of the false meetings are those who walk not after the Spirit but after the flesh with their conscience seared. These can be seen as those who live carnal rather than Spiritual; and can be seen as those who are an adulteress generation as they run after the things of the world the ways of the flesh and the evils of darkness. Recall Jesus rebuked the people for seeking signs and confirmation of Him being Messiah saying to them “a wicked and adulteress generation seeks after a sign.” (Matthew 16:4) Signs are also for unbelievers, people lacking in faith and it is a means to get their attention and convince them of the reality of the unseen realm; and of the power of God (1 Corinthians 14:20-22) and they are written clearly in the Word. The message of the cross offends the self-nature of man and is foolishness to his intellect as the flesh of man likes to be intoxicated by signs and wonders and intellectual innuendos. We are to live a crucified life, not one seeking signs and wonders and various other spiritual experiences. We are to set aside every sin that seems to beset us and seek after The Lord with all our hearts thus He will rain righteousness down on us. It is by identification with Him in His death and burial that we are raised up in the power of His resurrection to live in spiritual union with Him. In Him, is fullness and completeness; only He can satisfy the heart of man (Romans 6:1-8 Colossians 2:9-10). “A very young child needs constant reassurances of its mother’s presence but as a child matures if it does not begin to trust in its parent’s oversight it is greatly handicapped in their development. It is a lack of maturity when our focus is on seeking after supernatural manifestations in signs and wonders and miracles unless they serve a purpose for the furtherance of the kingdom of God and the truth is in this state of immaturity one is wide open to deception. As wonderful as the genuine signs and wonders as recorded in the Word are when manifested they should not be the focus of our attention to seek after these things or to go to meetings which feature ‘the spectacular’. Our focus should be on preparing ourselves for the kingdom and seeking to become like
Jesus and to please the Father in all that we do and to be holy both in our body and our spirit which are Gods (1 Corinthians 6:20).” 4. [Hammond:2009] We are told to: “Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your heart to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:16-17 The truth is these signs of gold dust, oil, feathers, shaking/jerking, uncontrollable laughing like you are on acid trip and so on do not fall within the boundaries of the Words genuine signs and wonders (1 Corinthians 2:15). For demons were cast out, the sick were healed, the blind could see, the deaf could hear, the lame walked, the dumb spoke, the dead were raised and all matter of diseases left (Acts 2:22). Or on the other hand any confirmation that they are sent from God by telling us of the signs of Christ’s coming outlined in Matthew 24:5-14 to happen at such and such a date. The signs were in such a way that they confirmed that Jesus was sent from the Father (John 14:11, 6:26-40) and they were signs from God to let them know that they were from God. His signs confirmed they were from Him in other words to let them know that their Messiah was in their midst for He performed signs in their midst (John 14:7-12; 6:26-33) and they were outlined or prophesied beforehand in the Old Testament. If any man works His works in accordance with the truth, they must and will be raised up in accordance with Matthew 16:24-26 and Luke 14:25-35 and John 15:1-13 before being sent. Therefore, signs reveal to us who and who is not sent of God who and who does not speak the things of God for signs will have to fall within the boundaries of The Word. False signs will not deceive the elect for only the elect are those who are grounded and rooted in the truth, those who truly live according to abiding in Jesus, obeying and dying to self who are walking in holiness keeping the laws of God (Isaiah 30:21). Those who are without rebellion and loving each other to overlook faults and following after the Lord not man or drawing men unto themselves and building their own kingdom. This is quite sad when you reflect on this and when you consider five foolish and five wise that is only half who profess to know and serve Christ enter into life everlasting!
Those who draw near to God with their mouths but their hearts that are far from Him (Isaiah 29:13; Matthew 15:8) will be more susceptible to receive the false. Those who are rebellious and who will not hear the law of God (Isaiah 30:9) and those who want to hear the prophets and the Pastors say the right things (Isaiah 30:10) and those who want to tell the people what they want to hear (Jeremiah 6:14; 5:31) and those who refuse to hear or refuse to see to obey (Ezekiel 12:1-2) will be more susceptible to deception and these He will turn over to the believe the lie (Zechariah 7:11-14). Consider is this you? Do you fall within any of these? If you will have ears to hear what The Lord is saying to you the dust will be not be shaken off against you (Matthew 10:5-15) and you will not be turned over to the lie (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12) or spewed out of His mouth (Revelation 3:16). Therefore, hear and repent and do the will of the Father to cease from working against His laws to cease from your works of iniquity that drive you to these meeting or that drive you to hold these false meetings.
Judge Evil from Good
“Test all things, hold fast to the good. Keep back from every form of evil.” 1 Thessalonians 5:21-22
Father, awaken me from a slumbering spirit and open the eyes of my heart Lord, take the scales off my eyes and the deafness from my ears that I may see and hear the false in my life that I may know where I have believed the false to be true. We need to question, question and not be afraid, we need not say “I can’t question the way God is moving in these last days” because He does command us to question and to – “Test all things” (1 Thessalonians 5:21-22) “believe not every spirit” and He tells us that “Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders” will deceive and that “many will depart the true teachings of the Christian faith and follow seducing spirits under the guise of righteousness.” (1 Timothy 4:1). I write this again, we are to judge the doctrines behind what is taught and preached as to whether it matches up to the scriptures (Romans 2:18) we are to judge evil from good (Hebrews 5:14) and we are to examine all ministries (1 Thessalonians 5:21) we are to keep back from all types of evil (1 Thessalonians 5:22). We are to do this with the gift of discernment in order to distinguish the works of the flesh with the operation of deceiving spirits (1 Corinthians 12:10) as against the works of The Spirit of God. One of the nine gifts of the Spirit we are given is the gift of discernment so that we can know when something is not of God (1 Corinthians 12:7-10) and this gift is for everyone. The demonic realm uses and operates out of the fleshly nature of man to work their works so this is a reason why with the gift of discernment we need to differentiate that which is truly Spiritual in nature from that which is by the flesh in spiritual nature. When we receive something as true and it is false this gives demonic powers legal rights to continue to operate in that area of our lives for this is spiritual law (1 Timothy 4:1-2; Ephesians 2:2; 2 Corinthians 11:4; Ezekiel 18:24). This is why we see some men and women who have genuine calls in this area who have started off with genuine miracles signs and wonders
according to the boundaries set out in the Word but now are working with the false signs (Galatians 1:6-9). This is why it is difficult to believe that there is the false as the ministry has evidence of genuine works of God’s Holy Spirit yet they are ministering with a mixture of demonic signs and wonders with true signs and wonders of healings and miracles. Jessie Penn-Lewis writes “a glimpse into the mixed manifestations that have come upon the church of God since the revival in Wales. For almost without exception, in every land where revival has since broken forth, a counterfeit stream has mingled with the true within a very brief period of time. And almost without exception, true and false have been accepted together because people are ignorant of the possibility of concurrent streams.” 1. [PennLewis 114:1996] But if you look closely you will see the false does not marry up with the Word like we see in the laughing the drunkenness the gold dust the oil the feathers the manna the jewels the vibrating and shaking and the flicker of the hand. Further the true presence of God can and will depart (1 Samuel 4:21-22 Ichabod) then that person and ministry will remain under the deceptive power to operate in the false only. I have discerned a person who prays in tongues in a powerful voice of speech – very, very loud abandoning self in belief to intertwine with The Holy Spirit to then strike several times at the person’s stomach, then to collapse on the floor. Yet this is oppression from the deception in thinking abandonment, as this is the way she thinks she is to intertwine with The Holy Spirit to come into a mindless abandonment. “This shows that the Holy Spirit is in the believer’s spirit, and that the demon or demons are in his body, using the tongue and throwing the body about at their will.” 2. [Penn-Lewis 116:1996] “evil spirits may be working in his mind or body, making use of the cover of the truth to insert their manifestations, so that their deceptions will find acceptance with both the speaker and hearers” … “Perhaps the speaker begins to pray quietly and calmly, with a pure spirit, but suddenly the voice is raised, it sounds hollow or has a metallic tone, the tension of the meeting increases, and overwhelming, overmastering “power” falls upon it, and no one thinks of resisting what appears to be such a manifestation of God!” 3. [Penn-Lewis 118:1996] “A true mantle and a true anointing and true signs and wonders against the false look alike, but they can be distinguished if you will be still and listen 45
to the Word and the counsel of the Holy Spirit coming out of your spirit.” 4. [Malligan, 2009:83] (1 Corinthians 12:10) Do not be afraid that you are going to miss Jesus, miss your healing, miss a true move, miss God’s outpouring, miss an opportunity for your church flock, miss the equipping power to fulfill your destiny and do not think that you need to have the transferred anointing they offer because you do not want dead religion, because the false comes at a great cost. You will be blind-sided if you have an agenda of your own or motivated by the flesh or living out of fear. We all have to surrender to deal with our own desires and surrender all our own motives and own reasoning so as to judge these moves before we engage in any move. James tells us that the things which are earthly or of this world are those that are sensual to be demonic (James 3:13-18). Satan is the god of this “kosmos” the order of things in this world. Therefore, the things in this world come under his control, and this is why John the Apostle says to us: “Do not love the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is of the world – the lusts of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world is passing away and the lust of it, but he who does the will of God abides forever.” 1 John 2:15-17 NKJ Satan uses the attraction of the things of this world to allure man through the lusts of his flesh and the desires of his mind. This god that every stone was his covering (Ezekiel 28:13) described as the “prince of the power of the air” and he is the authority that controls the airwaves to infiltrate mankind and who works in all those who walk “according to the course of this world” and “among whom … also once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind.” (Ephesians 2:1-3) We have been delivered out of his kingdom but we can be brought back under his influence through the attraction of the things of this world activating the lust of the natural man (Colossians 1:13). Satan’s demons allure us by the things of the world and the things that look good and that feel good and that satisfy our own ego and if these are the areas that have not been sanctified and made pure by the Word of God they can draw us into false worship of these false signs and wonders. This is part of the reason why people are so easily deceived for they do not have their lives centered in Him. They do not keep His laws or walk in His 46
ways (Matthew 5:19) but think they do (Matthew 7:22-23) but they are really following the doctrines of the commandments of men (Matthew 15:9) not the commandments of God (Matthew 22:40; 15:4-6; 5:17-20). And they are still seeking to find satisfaction for their lives in wealth and the things of this world than a life centered on His teachings. Jesus said they will be seen by their fruits: “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17. Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 7:15-21KJ Healing signs and wonders are not the gauge of fruit, the gauge by which we are to judge is the fruit of a person and the ministry. The Bible is the measuring stick to gauge if it is in accordance with biblical patterns and its boundaries by using various scriptures to give sound doctrine (2 Timothy 1:13, 3:14, 4:3). We cannot hold onto this rationale “but there are healings and people are being converted for this is good fruit.” The demonic spirit Kundalini (Please see appendix 2) is said to be one of the greatest healing forces in the occult and is considered as an inexhaustible energy and he that cometh preaches another gospel and people receive another spirit of this other Jesus (2 Corinthians 11:4). Consider did Jesus say we will know them by their fruit or by their gifts? Yes, He said we would know them by their fruit. So do they have the fruit of the Spirit in their own life? Is the ministry producing fruit in people’s lives? Are they drawn into a deeper relationship with Jesus? Are they growing in Christ likeness and becoming more mature in Him? Are they growing in self sacrificial love one to another? Are they experiencing the fruit of The Spirit? We cannot judge any phenomena as it stands alone by the signs or wonders and this includes the supernatural manifestations like gold dust and oil but by their fruit and recall these signs are those that follow those who believe, 47
the lame walk, the dead are raised, the deaf hear, the blind see, evils spirits are cast out and people are healed from all manner of diseases (Acts 2:22, 43; 5:12; 8:6-7, 13; 14:3) and remember these are the gifts operating within the person not the fruits. The fruit is also not judged by how much the people love the Pastor or are stimulated by their message or excited by what happens in the meetings. It is not the “look good” “feel good” fruit that is the measure of a person’s ministry, but the fruit according to the Word that is of an eternal quality. Ministries can obtain a very good report from the people but actually be contrary to all sound doctrine. As a discipline we must test and approve everyone. “the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule at their direction; and my people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?” Jeremiah 5:31 “But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.” Hebrews 5:14 Even those that appear well established such as Benny Hinn, Rodney Howard-Brown or John Kilpatrick or John and Carol Arnott and others alike before we accept their ministry of the Gospel we are to test and approve all things. Just because they do signs of power of “slaying in the spirit” and healing and people are converted it may well be according to: “some will depart from the faith…cleaving to deceiving spirits and teachings of demons…being seared in their own conscience.” 1 Timothy 4:1-2 “I wonder that you are so quickly being transferred from Him having called you by the grace of Christ to another gospel,” Galatians 1:6 “…he that cometh preacheth another Jesus…and ye receive another spirit...ye receive another gospel...and you bear it.” 2 Corinthians 11:4 “And the dogs are greedy, they are not satisfied. And they are shepherds who have no understanding; They have all turned to their own way, Each one to his unjust gain, to the last one.” Isaiah 56:11 48
If a ministry is prophesying by what they say and do and it is something contrary to that which was committed to the apostles and which is not able to be verified by the Word, then that ministry has come under a seducing spirit and is preaching “another gospel of another Jesus.” “I wonder that you are so quickly being transferred from Him having called you by the grace of Christ to another gospel, 7. Which is not another; only some there are troubling you and desiring to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8. But even if we, or an angel out of Heaven, should preach a gospel to you beside what we preached, let him be accursed. 9. As we have said before, and now I say again, if anyone preaches a gospel to you beside what you received, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:6-9 In a ministry if there is a false word that is confirmed with signs and wonders, this is called lying signs and wonders and is for the purpose of deceiving those who do not respect the Word and thereby draw them away from coming to relationship with the One True God. God does say that He confirms His word with signs and wonders as they are an endorsement of the preaching of the Word (Acts 14:3; Romans 15:19; Hebrews 2:4) but they are not meant to be an end in themselves. They are intended as a spectacular display of His presence to get our attention, and after having done that His desire is to draw us into to knowledge of Himself and His ways and to build relationship. As Grace Hammond says “no relationship has any substance when it is all froth and bubble for solidarity has to be established, that is deeper than receiving goodies all the time. So while signs and wonders are a good thing and have a purpose, a ministry that is focused on signs and wonders is contrary to the Word.” 5. [Hammond, 2009]
Let Us Reason Together
“To whom shall He teach knowledge and whom will He make to understand the message?” “… for precept must be upon precept…”
Isaiah 28:9a & 10a
Can you imagine Jesus touching people in the Jewish synagogues or at the Temple or within the Temple at Solomon’s Portico and them barking like a dog or shaking, vibrating or laughing continuously and uncontrollably falling over under a power when he prayed for them; can you imagine groaning like a cow or groaning with their stomach going into spasms or their hands or heads violently shaking back and forth? Please consider this thought again and or read the above paragraph again so that you might be able to recall anywhere in the Scriptures that makes mention of any such signs, wonders or acts of powers done by Jesus Christ of Nazareth? Further can you recall where the Pharisees or Sadducees even making reference to any of this? I believe they would have, the only accusation to a sign was that He cast out demons by Beelzebub (Matthew 9:34, 12:24) and we read that they came out making noise (Mark 9:26). Jesus was a radical in the eyes of the religious of His day at the best of times but I see no evidence where he did or was accused of this type of phenomena by Jews or Gentiles or any of the ultra-orthodox Pharisees of the day; I can not read anywhere where they accused Jesus or mocked Him for these types of signs and wonders and acts of power. Yes, water was turned into wine, multitudes were fed from two fish and five pieces of bread, a coin was found in the mouth of a fish but all these wonders pointed to what had been written and prophesy written in Old Testament of Messiah. When we consider the following true signs and wonders and or miracles by Jesus and ask ourselves are they anything like the signs and wonders of today of gold dust, oil, feathers, shaking and laughing recall true signs and miracles were prophesied in the Old Testament Isaiah 32:3-4 = Matthew 9:32, Mark 7:33-35, John 5:5-9, 9:6-11; Isaiah 35:5-6 = Matthew 11:4-5, 9:35; Isaiah 42:7; Isaiah 53:4 = Matthew 12:15-21) Healing of the nobleman’s son Healing of the demoniac
(John 4:46-54) (Mark 1:23; Luke 4:33) 50
Healing of Peters mother in law (Matthew 8:14; Mark 1:30; Luke 4:33) Cleanses the 10 lepers (Luke 7:11-19) Leper cured (Matthew 8:2; Mark 1:40; Luke 5:12) Healing of the paralyzed man (Matthew 9:2; Mark 2:3; Luke 5:18) Healing of the man at the pool of Bethesda (John 5:1-9) Healing of the withered hand (Mark 3:1-5) Restores the centurions servant (Matthew 8:5-13) Raises the widows son to life at Nain (Luke 7:11-17) Heals the demoniac in the country of the Gerasenes (Matthew 8:28; Mark 5:1; Luke 8:26) Raises Jairus daughter (Matthew 9:23; Mark 5:23; Luke 8:41) Heals the woman with the issue of blood (Matthew 9:20; Mark 5:25; Luke 8:43) The crippled woman’s infirmity cured (Luke 13:10-17) Gives sight to two blind men (Matthew 9:27-31) Syro-Phoenicians daughter delivered from demons (Matthew 15:28; Mark 7:24) Feeds four thousand people (Matthew 15:32; Mark 8:1) Feeding of the five thousand (Matthew 14:15; Mark 6:34; Luke 9:10; John 6:1-14) Heals the man who is deaf and mute (Mark 7:31-37) Dumb spirit cast out (Matthew 9:32-33) Devil cast of boy (Matthew 17:14; Mark 9:17; Luke 9:37) Opens the eyes of a man born blind (John 9:2) Raises Lazarus (John 11:38-44) Heals the man with dropsy (Luke 14:1-6) Curses the fig tree to wither and it died (Matthew 21:19; Mark 11:13-14) Restores the ears of Malchus (Luke 22:50-51) Stills the storm (Matthew 8:23; Mark 4:37; Luke 8:22) The catch of 153 fish (John 21:1-14) Coin in fish’s mouth (Matthew 17:24-27) Walks on water (Matthew 14:25; Mark 6:48; John 6:19) Water into wine (John 2:1-11) When we consider the boundaries of signs and wonders above do we see The Father through Jesus in the various Jewish synagogues and at the Temple causing gold dust or jewels or feathers or oil to appear on the palms of the people’s hands or on the feet? Do we read of anyone shaking, vibrating laughing or being in a spiritual drunkenness?
Phillip who was carried away in the Spirit or Peter with the death of Ananias and Sapphira or Paul striking Elymas with blindness or Paul not dying from a bite of a viper or Peter and Paul’s signs and wonders of casting out evil spirits, the lame walking and the various healings and raising the dead are nothing like these phenomena’s in the church today. Jesus came as “The Word made flesh” and as their Savior Messiah and Rabbi, not their magician or clown? Jesus came to save them from their sins He came as the God of holiness and order. He walked in the Spirit of selfcontrol not in bizarre manifestations which would quickly have justified their accusations of Him doing works by Beelzebub the lord of the demons (Matthew 12:22-27). It is well known and written by a touch on the forehead then falling to the ground, unconscious in the spirit, shaking and vibrating, groaning and other bizarre forms of behavior were attributed to demons (Mark 9:17, 20, 26; Luke 4:35, 9:42) not the anointing of God. Jesus came to fulfill what was written of Him; and consider, as He came according to what was written of Him and we are in Him and Christ is within us and on a greater scale we would do the things He did; then why would we be doing types of signs and miracles and wonders that He never did? “Eye has not seen and ear has not heard what God has in store for those who love Him” (1 Corinthians 2:9) does not refer to signs and wonders but “wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory;” (v 7) already written throughout His Word. However, He did say He will send a work of delusion upon those who do not love Him His ways and His Word (2 Thessalonians 2:10-11). When we examine some of the phenomena of these movements and terms used they do not line up with the truths of Scripture. Living water or wells or rivers of water flowing out through a temple of the Holy Spirit have to be according to the nature of the Holy Spirit which it typifies and cannot be taken as alluding to groaning moaning shaking or trembling as part of its manifestations yet the allegory is understood. The use of Word pictures such as living water wells of water (John 7:38) that are taught in these meetings which are said to go into rivers of water are terms that are applied to the manner in which the spiritual influence in these meetings is operating. This terminology is not consistent with the manner in which it is used or meant in scripture. It is a perversion of scriptural symbolism that the demonic use to back up these strange manifestations (2 Peter 3:16-17, 39) and the ignorant are receiving this without question!
However, we must remember that Rabbis’ and Jews taught an allegory in order to prove a contextual point. These catch phrases are a perversion of the use of scripture for the purpose of deception. Their erroneous application of typology gives the demons a camouflage whereby they can infiltrate and stay housed within His body, yours and the church body to work against you personally and against God’s Kingdom plans and purposes. They are likened to a Trojan horse which has been placed in our midst and we all know we are in a spiritual war until the end; therefore, the demons will work from their legal doorways to further strategize and infiltrate to destroy and demolish and remain housed. Any manifestation of the Spirit is subject to the spirit of the person operating in it and we are instructed that “everything be done decently and in order” (1 Corinthians 14:32, 40). Therefore, we need to search the Scriptures to prove who The Holy Spirit is, what He does, why He came, what He does in the church and what He is doing in the world today. Falling in the presence does has scriptural references (1 Kings 8:10; 2 Chronicles 5:11-14; Daniel 10:9-10; Matthew 17:5-7; John 18:6; Acts 9:34; Revelation 1:17) however everything has to come under the scrutiny of the scriptures and these need through study to prove if that is what it means that the manifest presence of Yahweh or Jesus Christ or The Spirit of Christ Jesus or an angel to be causing people to fall. What I see being displayed in the main at these revivals or in churches who have taken back the transference of anointing is not works of power of The Spirit of Christ Jesus but those seen in the occult realms. A cloud of glory is scriptural but this needs to be discerned if it is genuine for there is so much false about. The Old Testament will interpret the New and reveal the correlation between that content and its content. The New will point to the laws and precepts upon which works of miracles signs and wonders are performed. The Word also points to the works of the flesh such as sorcery, heresies, spiritual fornication, spiritual wild parties and idolatry (Galatians 5:19-21) and these are some of the transgression entered into by going to, participating in, and receiving an impartation at these false revivals and signs and wonders meetings. By so doing we become “cursed children” (2 Peter 2:14) “son of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2) “working lawlessness – working against the law – doing iniquity – working on the side of evil” (Matthew 7:21-23). 53
Wake up oh sleeper rise from the dead, “angels referred to in these meetings are being exalted and focused upon in a manner which becomes idolatry, detracting from the worship of the One True God and from whose hand we receive all things. These ministries who are interacting with these angels are intruding into a realm which is closed to man in this age; the angels are demons in disguise.” 1. [Hammond: 2009] “Let no one cheat you of your reward taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up in his fleshly mind, and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the Body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is from God.” Colossians 2:18-19 Consider! Is the power of the Lord conveyed through angelic assistance or angels doing the healing or the power of The Holy Spirit? We see this in the works and ministry of Jesus Christ. “Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit and with power and went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed by the devil for God was him.” Acts 10:38 “And the power of the Lord was present for Him to heal the sick.” Luke 5:17 When you read other Scriptures The Holy Spirit is the means of power for the release of healing not angels or a name, or even a position given to a believer. For recall Jesus said: “If I cast out devils by The Holy Ghost…”
“The Spirit of God is upon; therefore He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to captives, and new sight to the blind; to send away crushed ones in deliverance.” Luke 4:18 Paul also testifies to the ministry of The Holy Spirit, not angels: “Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.” Romans 15:19
Paul also teaches about the operation of this gift for other members of the body: “… and to another gifts of healing by the same Spirit 10. And to another working of powers… 11. But the one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing separately to each as He wills.” 1 Corinthians 12:9-11 So consider is it angels or us that are commissioned to heal the sick? Yes, us, the commission to go and preach the Word with signs following was given to believers not angels (Mark 16:15-20) therefore the doors opened to angels are open doors to deception, heresy and error and perversion of the Gospel. Paul never speaks of angels touching the heads of people and them coming into laughter or any angels walking down the aisle and throwing gold dust as is said to happen in Todd Bentleys meetings so as to bring forth financial blessing or a spirit of prophecy or to manifest God’s glory. Neither does Paul nor any other disciple testify to ministering with angels, nor in the bizarre ways as seen at these revival meetings or as seen on Christian T.V.; yet Paul does speak of the Holy Spirit anointing believers again not angels. It is The Holy Spirit who distributes the gifts in the ministry of signs and wonders there are none of these bizarre types of signs and wonders written, therefore they are of the god of this age, the false works of fallen angels of darkness. (Please see appendix 3) In John 5:2-4 under Law where the angel troubled the water at the pool at the Bethesda the angel only agitated the water so that the people would know when the power of God was present to heal. The reference to the “angel” over the churches in Revelation Chapters 2 and 3 is understood by most commentaries as the overseer of the particular assemblies referred to there (1 Corinthians 11:10). The Greek word used there basically means a “messenger” or an “agent” not as implied to be a heavenly angel in charge over the church. “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira, write” Revelation 2:18 As following this The Holy Spirit through John is speaking to the members of the church of Thyatira, and consider this, the spirit of Jezebel is teaching and prophesying. She is the ruling demonic spirit – Divination- in the
false prophets or prophetess or teachers alongside the antichrists lying signs and wonders spirits. “But I have a few things against you, that you allow the woman Jezebel to teach, she saying herself to be a prophetess, and to cause My slaves to go astray, and to commit fornication, and to eat idolsacrifices.” Revelation 2:20 Study for yourself the working of angels in accordance to The Holy Spirit given in Old and then to all in the New Covenant. Angels are ministering to those who will receive salvation (Hebrews 1:14) they ministered to Jesus (Mark 1:12) who was still under Law, and they are present with us and they do watch over His Word to perform it (Psalm 103:20; Daniel 8:16; Luke 1:11) however it is under His command The Holy Spirit and is in accordance with the unchanging principles of His Word. Angels are not given the ministry of teaching, it is the Holy Ghost that is given as the teacher, alongside of the Word (John 14:26). The apostles and prophets were moved by The Holy Ghost to teach and train (2 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Peter 1:10-12; Acts 1:15). They were not moved by angels or by Jesus appearing to them to teach them doctrine; The Holy Spirit opened their understanding to the application of the scriptures. We need to question any ministry that has Jesus appearing to them and teaching them or angels appearing to them and teaching them or angels bringing them messages and interacting with them or another Holy Spirit turning up other than the One indwelling Spirit we are given to drink. There is no validity for the Holy Spirit turning up in you room as well as the Spirit who indwells you to speak to you or to minister to you because you are sealed with indwelling Spirit. All is done by the one the same Spirit within as we are given one Spirit to drink (1 Corinthians 12:4-11, 13). Benny Hinn experienced this if I understand it correctly as it reads “Suddenly He was there, The Holy Spirit entered my room.” 2. [Hinn, 1987:1] “Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8. To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9. To another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10. To another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking indifferent kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. 11. All these are the work of 56
the one and the same Spirit, and he given them to each one, just as he determines.” 1 Corinthians 12:7-11 NKJ There is no basis for assuming that there were other signs which validate the unusual such as is happening in this counterfeit movement because there were many signs done that were not recorded. “Therefore many other signs Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31. But these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.” John 20:30-31 NASB John 20:30-31 writes that: “Jesus did many signs that they might believe that He was the Son of God and that people would believe on His name.” John 20:30-31 Those that were written for us were the most prominent signs in His ministry and they are where the bar raised stops, anything other than what is recorded for us to know of is outside the bar raised, outside the boundaries given to us as recorded in The Word. Those that were written gave testimony of Him as they defined of Him as Son of God and were in accordance with prophecy from the Old Testament. The most out there phenomenon Jesus did was for the tax payment required for the service of the temple that He told Peter would be in a fish’s mouth (Matthew 17:27). There is nothing to substantiate that it was a creative miracle for the fish may have swallowed the coin. “…go to the seas and cast a hook, and take the first fish that comes up, and when you open its mouth you will find a shekel; take that and give it to them for me and for yourself.” Matthew 17:27 However, this was a sign that pointed to His Divinity; it was a sign that the Son of Man was the sinless Son of God who did not have to pay tax for the atonement of the soul as the Law required for the service of the Temple (Exodus 30:15-16). Jesus was the fulfillment of the Law and Jesus made Himself subject to all things and paid the tax as He The Word would write:
“For the same reason you also pay taxes, for the authorities and ministers of God…pay all them their dues, taxes to whom taxes are due revenue to whom revenue is due…” Romans 13:6-7 Another ‘out there’ sign was in John 2:7 of turning water into wine. The water was turned into wine when it came out of the jars not in the jars, and consider a word picture of Him “taste and see that the Lord is good.” This sign not only manifested His presence as Messiah in their midst, but would have pointed later to them of His cleansing blood that is needed for purification rather than the ritual of water held in those jars for Jewish rites of purification of uncleanness. His life itself was a sign that gave testimony to the fulfillment of the prophetic scriptures about Him in the Old Testament. The signs manifested in His ministry pointed to various things that related back to days of Old that had prophetic, scriptural correlation. These were the things which have been recorded, the particular experiences and signs which have been recorded and they were chosen by the Holy Spirit as a handbook from which He would teach and guide His church, for the whole church age until Jesus returns. If these supernatural appearances of oil on the hands or feet or on the wall or gold dust or feathers or precious jewels or these other signs that are claimed as works of God The Holy Ghost, would they not be recorded as testimony to the glory of God? The catch word is that these are a manifestation of His glory; would the Holy Spirit not inspire the writers of the New Testament to give full honor and glory to the Father for His marvelous works prior? Even the “cloven tongues of fire” was not a ministry gift it was a sign marking the day of Pentecost that pointed to the prophetic implication of days of old. Its significance was about receiving the Law at Mount Sinai and in this New Blood covenant and it brought the birthing of the Church. It also speaks about the Holy Spirit who was prophetically promised from days of old and was spoken again of by Jesus. This term or scripture of cloven tongues of fire cannot be used to justify this new false move of the “Glory Invasion.” 3. [Herzog, 2007:14] When we come to the issue of what is claimed that we will do greater works than these (John 14:12) the Greek here indicates that what is meant is greater in quantity. Greater things are within the perimeter, the boundary of
what Jesus did in His three year ministry as the prophetic words gave of why He would come and what He would do (Isaiah 61:1-3; Luke 4:18). If there were greater things outside of these parameters, the Apostles would have recorded these types of bizarre signs as being the greater things in their own lives. But they did not experience such bizarre things, or write about anything that parallels these types of things for us to experience and learn of. Nor is there anything in scripture to predict that there would be an end time outpouring of the Spirit in ways that went beyond that which was initiated by the Lord Himself and carried on in the apostolic succession of the early church from Pentecost. “Greater things will you do” does not mean greater in comparison to what Jesus did nor does it allow for things that go beyond what scripture has recorded. Such as the bizarre signs of gold dust falling out of the hair or appearing on hands or on the Bible or laughing hysterically, or of oil on the hands or of trembling and shaking and other things listed. These things have been phenomena in the New Age and Eastern Religions for centuries; they have their origins in the kingdom of darkness, they are not according to the pattern of The Word and do not come from Yahweh or Jesus through The Holy Ghost. www.fruitfulvine.com has an excellent teaching and prayer strategy on Kundalini that if not totally uprooted will deceive you even if you renounce a counterfeit meeting for you have not got ‘her’ original doorway. If you have ears to hear listen to take into consideration do the signs of gold dust oil on the palms of the hand feathers shaking vibrating involuntary movements laughing over and over and over again for various minutes at a time and groaning like a cow in labor and barking allude doctrinally to other situations of a similar nature in the Bible? Do they speak of Biblical truths? Do they speak of biblical prophecy? Do they point to Jesus signs and miracles and wonders or works of power? If not they point to the god of mammon, the lusts of the flesh, greed and a false prosperity doctrine and the false prophets and the false signs and wonders and the deception we are warned about. The parallels and other similar healing and miracles Jesus did that are not in the book were of the nature and kind as the many signs that were recorded or revealed Him as Creator. NOT these bizarre signs of gold dust oil on the hands precious jewels and feathers on the floor, gold fillings, laughing uncontrollably like when you have the hick ups or strange noise making or
animal sounds or shaking and vibrating or of people’s stomach rolling up and down or this on the floor and groaning loudly. What is recorded is what He willed for our lives to experience and again not even the master builder Paul the Apostle records in the Spirit filled apostolic church age of gold, oil, feathers, shaking, laughing and so on. If these are valid signs why do we not have them recorded as part of “these signs shall follow those who believe”? Or why do we not see them recorded by the Historians such as Josephus or Eusebius as works by Jesus or the Apostles? Yes, why have they not recorded such signs? “They shall make things appear, they shall make gold dust appear, oil appear feathers appear? It is more like the work of magicians: “they make gold dust appear, they make oil appear” and these works they shall do “they shall make people laugh uncontrollably, they shall make people shake and tremble, they shall make people vibrate, they shall make people move their body involuntary. Yes the works of magicians for “they sure do point them away from the truth of His Word.” “Oh foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you…?” (Galatians 3:1) I prophetically beseech you - wake up! Scripture writes these are the boundaries along with Isaiah 61:1-4. “And signs will follow to those believing these things they will cast out demons in My name; they will speak new languages, they will take up snakes; and if they drink anything deadly, it will in no way hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick and they will be well.” Mark 16:17 “THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED, TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD.” Luke 4:18-19 NASB The transference of “anointing” is something that is widely practiced in this move, ministries are attempting to impart their gifts and anointing onto others. This is not the Biblical pattern of being equipped, for “to some The Holy Spirit gave” as “He wills the manifestations for the common good so to one is given through the Spirit …who apportions to each one individually as He wills.” (1 Corinthians 12:4-11)
Calling, divine destiny, anointing for ministry is not handed out at any meeting or revival meeting by transference of anointing. It is as God appoints in the church as written TO SOME: “To some He made Apostles, prophets, teacher’s workers of miracles, healers, helpers, administrators, and speakers in various kinds of tongues. Are they all apostles? Are they all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all possess gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?” [Emphasis added here mine] 1 Corinthians 12:28-30 It is not by a quick work or “a download” that God raises up anyone or raises up any ministry or by any type of transferable anointing or a visit to heaven or by a vision in a visit to heaven. We are not all called to be Apostles or Prophets or Teachers or workers of miracles or healers, but we are all called to the pattern and sanctification of the Word (2 Timothy 2:15, 21-22, 3:16-17) and those who will be in ministry must conform with Acts 6:1-6 and 1 Timothy 3:8-13. “Now at this time while the disciples were increasing in number, a complaint arose on the part of the Hellenistic Jews against the native Hebrews, because their widows were being overlooked in the daily serving of food. 2. So the twelve summoned the congregation of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable for us to neglect the word of God in order to serve tables. 3. “Therefore, brethren, select from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task. 4. “But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” 5. “the statement found approval with the whole congregation; and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch. 6. And these they brought before the apostles; and after praying, they laid their hands on them.” Acts 6:1-6 NASB “Deacons likewise must be men of dignity, not double-tongued, or addicted to much wine or fond of sordid gain, 9. But holding to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 10. These men must also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach. 11. Women must likewise be dignified, not malicious gossips, but temperate, faithful in all things. 12. Deacons must be husbands of only one wife, and good managers of their children and their own households. 13. For those who have served
well as deacons obtain for themselves a high standing and great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 3:8-13 To bring the spiritualizing of scripture that is done in this counterfeit movement into perspective, consider the instance of Paul laying hands on Timothy in regard to the transference of anointing. Paul laid hands not to impart anything but to confirm Timothy’s appointment as a Pastor. Timothy had come under an attack of fear, coupled with being regarded as a young pastor, so Paul exhorts him by reminding him “to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.” (2 Timothy 1:6-7) This was implied in the past tense – “remember Timothy that hands were laid on you to be commissioned stand strong do not fear.” Paul was implying that he was not to yield to man out of fear because he had been approved by God and he was approved by a biblical pattern of establishing set forth by the apostolic authority and approval of the master builder Apostle Paul by the laying on of hands for commissioning. Laying on of hands is for confirmation of a gift, or for an appointment given by the Holy Spirit, not for man to pass on a portion of their anointing to another person. Elijah and Elisha are mentioned to back up the transference of anointing but when the mantle of Elijah was passed on to Elisha it was not at Elijah’s determination to pass it on, but that of the Father and it was determined by Elisha passing the test of “seeing” him when he would be taken. This seems to indicate that Elisha’s qualification for carrying on the call of Elijah depended on his dedication and faithfulness right up to the end and his level of spiritual attainment and preparedness by that time to measure up and be able to carry the prophetic gifting (2 Kings 2:1-14). Another example put forward by those propagating the transference of anointing and gifts is that of Moses. In the first instance at Mt. Sinai (Exodus 18:13-26) it was by divine counsel through Jethro that the appointments were made for the leaders of the people to share the burden of administration. In the second instance seventy were appointed by Moses in Numbers 11:16-30 and the sharing of anointing which was upon Moses was done by Yahweh Himself. He came down in the cloud and the Spirit of God rested upon them (Numbers 11:25). No laying on of hands or mediation of man in it at all. Even two who were not appointed by Moses were anointed by the Spirit at that time (Numbers 11:26). Transference of anointing from person to 62
person belongs to the demonic realm and it is simply this: transference of evil spirits. Examine the scriptures to see whether these things are so or whether they are in the Word. This is a spiritual discipline to be fostered and we see this where Paul said that those he preached to in Berea, “Were more noble minded than those in Thessalonica for they received the word with great eagerness examining the scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.” Acts 17:11 This is a foundational belief or spiritual discipline for everything has to come under the scrutiny of the Scriptures and this is a must before you accept what is happening in these moves; further before you go to these meetings churches or take someone to them or before you cry out for them to come into your church. “Wake up oh sleeper and come away from the dead and come away from the death of these meetings and other alike. Come away so you can be set at liberty, come away and learn to test and prove these things before you go to any more of like kind that will come in the future, come and sit at the Masters feet and learn of Him.”
Examining the Fruit
“Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.” Ephesians 5:11
I am not writing these things about the leaders in this movement to accuse or speak evil of them or to name names or to judge them personally, but to write against the signs, the wonders, the preaching, and the error of these prominent people. I need to use names to identify the source of these phenomena’s as I believe they are unknowingly in agreement with a false gospel, another gospel, a false gospel of signs and wonders. Moreover, I write because: “clinging to the faithful word according to the teaching, that he may be able both to encourage with sound teaching, and to convict the ones speaking…” Titus 1:9 We do not need to be afraid to speak out against these meetings in fear of blaspheming the Holy Spirit or touching His anointed or judging least we be judged. We are all called to test and some are raised up to be able to discern works of evil spirits from the Holy Spirit so as to expose. There are those who have accused me of fearing to go near the supernatural. I can say I am not gun shy or am I looking for every demon under every rock. I and many others are called to teach for the purpose of opening the eyes of the blind and to release those who are bound with demonic works into the liberty of the Light. “Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them;” Ephesians 5:11 “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” 2 Timothy 4:2 We are all susceptible to the demonic, it’s the name of the game and we all have truth and error, it’s the state of the game. So, we all have to continuously test and approve all things all people in ministry and in the body of Christ and all our own and other people’s teaching and their doctrine and their theology. You’re on the board game whether you like it or not, so if you are not testing and approving, shake off the opposition’s game pieces and start
moving forward because you have been captured as the Devil is alive and at work to conquer your beliefs. As part of guarding ourselves against deception we have to test their fruit, their teachings and their lives. We have to test the way they received their call and all their visitations of the angelic and visitations of the Lord and their prophecies and what and how many have not come to pass. We also have to listen with the ears of our spirit with the knowledge of the Word in our heart, as the Word and the Spirit must bear witness. Not just The Holy Spirit, we are required to go to the Word and measure this against whatever we need to judge and discern. I am going to use Todd Bentley as a current example of this counterfeit move of God because much fruit of his own life has exposed him as a false prophet for all to see. When a person like Todd Bentley has had a genuine conversion but has later come under a ministry of false words and false prophecy from other deceived ministers and has received the false as true (2 Timothy 2:26; 2 Corinthians 11:3-4; 1 Timothy 4:1-2) he’ll be infiltrated with demons. Now he is open to what is falsely spoken and when the false manifestations marry up with the words of prophecy, he will be thinking this is The Holy Spirit (Matthew 24:23-24; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-10; 2 Corinthians 11:4) but he has been captured by the demonic and continues to do the will of those ones. “…if perhaps God may give them repentance for a full knowledge of the truth, 26. And they may awake out of the snare of the Devil, having been taken captive by him, so as to do the will of that one.” 2 Timothy 2:25-26 The demons then put him into more darkness like giving him angelic visitations (Please do not hesitate to read appendix 2 on information from internet links about “Emma” the angel and Samael the angel), and so he unknowingly runs with the false and becomes so seared that he can’t differentiate truth from error (1 Timothy 4:2). He has compounded his deception by opening door upon door into the demonic realm as he continues to minister under the power of deception. Win Worley writes that many times these people fall into adultery and or lust transgressions 1. [Worley: 1983:12] As this is the fruit of this network of the counterfeit false spirits they are opened to an onslaught by these spirits 65
from many angles. Today July 4, 2009 I am reformatting and adding my editor’s comments and it is now globally known Todd has come under these counterfeit networks powers of adultery and lust. I believe the following three examples are works of deception in Todd Bentley’s ministry rather than the Holy Spirit who he does believe told him to do these acts. One was to kick an elderly woman in the face, and she would get healed, and this he did and he said when his boot connected with her face she fell under the power and was healed. Two he said the Holy Spirit told him to bang this man's paralyzed legs up and down and hit them with a baseball bat and he would be healed, this he also did. Thirdly he said on YouTube The Holy Spirit told him to kick/knee this man in the stomach with cancer and he would be healed, so Todd kneed him in the stomach and this I watched and listened to him testifying of the other two accounts. This does not sound like the workings of The Holy Spirit but of a spirit of darkness with Todd’s usage of the words ‘bam’ and ‘sha-bam’. You shall know them by their fruits not their gifts; you will know them by their love, their joy, their peace, their humility and their gentleness and when we consider the ministry of The Spirit, He does not employ violence. Further, what does kicking an elderly person in the face or hitting a crippled man with a baseball bat or kneeing a man in the stomach do to justify or illustrate to us with these to be healed in such violent or abusive ways? Are we to feel ashamed? Are we so apostate that He wants to kick us in the face, kick us in the guts or bang us up and down with a baseball bat? When we consider our God is Holy, I believe He would not endorse a word like bam given its origins. Todd also goes into vibrating all over his body and saying “sha-bam” and shaking his head back and forth, this is demonic deception to represent or point to the Spirit of The Lord being upon Him. This is bad fruit with the usage of the word “bam” as Todd has a practice of invoking the ‘spirit’ upon people with the use of the magicians or sorceress word “bam.” Look it is blatant in your face occult mockery at Christians and these demons are ‘laughing all the way to the bank.’
As our example, Jesus was given The Spirit at all times and in all situations and consider without anyone imparting any touch or laying on of the hands and He had the Spirit without measure and no record of this type of actions are recorded like Todd Bentley and those alike from catch the fire meetings. Would you consider it good fruit when Todd Bentley believes The Holy Spirit told him to get tattoos on his body? If Yahweh forbids His people of Old to get tattoos for the dead on their body like the pagans did, as written why would He tell Todd to do so? “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.” Leviticus 19:28 Then, why would Yahweh ask him to do such for the bringing forth of a revival, or a revival meeting? Is this really how Yahweh uses the ways of the foolish to confound the wise, and this statement is one of the reasoning’s of this deception. Consider would He do this just to target ‘the unlovely’ or the marginalized group of people with lots of tattoos? Tattoo’s today is acceptable in society, movie stars have them – pop stars have them, a certain Princess has them. Would The Holy Spirit need to ordain tattoos to bring salvation and healing or even as a method to attract the bikies to go to this meeting? I do not think so for there is the convicting work of The Holy Ghost and the angels for those who will be heirs of salvation. Consider He has a highway called “the way of holiness” and the unclean will not pass over it (Isaiah 35:8) so why would He instruct someone to get tattoos? (Please view prophecy over Todd Bently by Stacy Campbell on YouTube; and take a fresh look to judge for yourself if this head shaking manifestation is a work by powers of darkness! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=macIFwHROaM ) “Wake up oh sleeper and rise from the dead.” “…separate the precious from the vile...”
“…touch no unclean thing you who bear the vessels of the Lord.” Isaiah 52:11 Recall symbols are not passive they invoke the spiritual power they represent; also, those who are in occult practices tattoo themselves to invoke the spiritual power they represent. Illustrations of some of his tattoos have been posted on internet saying they are demonic symbols, yet I have not tested them 67
but like all things this needs to be tested against the knowledge of these Chinese symbols before we just believe them to be demonic symbols. All gifts and fruit have to be judged and discerned to see if it is contrary to scripture, not just his tattoos. Fruit to be judged is what Todd Bentley does and says and any others who operate in these realms; also, what they say about their angelic and spiritual experiences, their visits to heaven and what they claim The Holy Spirit said to do and say. Those discussed here are but some of the highlights of the fruit of Todd Bentley’s ministry, but you will find more resources in the appendix to enable you to examine and test these things. Todd Bentley at this time of writing is no longer in ministry, having been overtaken by the lusts of the flesh and by the demonic realm which empowered him to do the works he performed. As such, he provides an example as one of many in the ranks who have fallen prey to the devastation which comes from coming under the power of the demonic counterfeit that wrought havoc in the lives of all those who have played with this strange fire. “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.” Ephesians 5:11 People cling to the argument that people are being healed, but that is not the measuring stick. Kundalini (Please see appendix 3) is said to be one of the greatest healing forces in the occult, “an inexhaustible energy” 2. [ www.evenstarcreations.com ] who operates as a healer. This is the ruling spirit that is being poured out at these meetings and if you already have the Kundalini spirit it is awakened at these meetings. “This spirit Kundalini produces a state of altered consciousness or enlightenment. It is a serpent spirit that coils at the base of the spine then uncoils itself up the spine to unite with the mind to reach the area of the forehead corresponding to the third eye of Shiva. When a spiritual union has taken place with Kundalini and the third eye it increases extrasensory and psychic powers. This makes it possible to open the third eye and is known as an inexhaustible reserve of energy and knowledge.” 3. [Malligan, 2009:84] “Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you.” Luke 10:19 NASB “And signs will follow to those believing these things they will cast out demons in My name; they will speak new languages, they will take up snakes…” Mark 16:17 68
It can be said that those who believe in and belong to this movement of signs and wonders of gold dust, oil, feathers, uncontrollable laughing and so on are similar to those in cults, because cults are groups of people who differ in practice and belief to “normative expressions of religion in our total culture.” 4. [McConnell, 1988:17]. This is seen in cults with the mind coming under the control of the ruling spirit that is linked up with the ruling mind control spirit in the air and this is likewise for these counterfeit and false Christian meetings – Kundalini, Divination and Religious Mind Control. The particular religious spirits which control them causes them to separate themselves and become cultic. They become addicted to their system of religious worship in an exclusion of others who are not initiated into their particular revelation and experience; it becomes a pride-based, sectarian, exclusive faction from the mainstream of the Body of Christ. “Mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which you have learned; and avoid them.” Romans 16:17 “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” 2 Peter 3:18 RSV It is true today as it was yesterday, that they go after the messenger because they cannot stand the message. Devils react in people in many ways when you have the ministry of exposure of their works, deliverance, and setting the captive free. But we fall down we get up, we fall down we get up and learn to move forward further than we have done before so we fight the good fight for it is nothing The Lord Jesus has not encountered and endured. “You are seeking to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth.” John 8:40 The devils will twist Romans 16:17 which tells us to “Mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them,” in order to make those under deception believe that the deliverance minister has gone into error, so as to keep their furniture in God’s house and or our body His temple of His Spirit to bring their bitter roots of poison. But anyway, as those who expose works of darkness we are called to honor God above men, women and demons (Isaiah 8:12-14) and to judge with 69
scripture all supernatural experiences, we are to please God before we please men or women or position or denomination, we are called to longsuffering in exhorting, teaching or reproving or rebuking with sound doctrine. We are not to fear men or be popular with the multitude or go for position in the church or be promoted by the Pastor, it is The Lord our God who promotes; and we are not to desert our post in war in fear of blasphemy The Holy Spirit or fear or fear of failure or losing our call or our call not coming to pass or being excommunicated or being brought before a ‘religious Sanhedrin.’ Also, we are not to be full of ourselves and think more highly of ourselves than we ought as we will be taken captive in pride giving more grounds to demons. I am writing a book along the same lines as “Overcoming Rejection and Overcoming Offense” called “Overcoming While Waiting for your Vision to Come to Pass” so as to give keys to apply truths and spiritual applications whilst waiting for the opening of the doors of a ministry or a ministry position. The book is a tool of guidance so The Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ can teach and speak and impart to us as we wait and walk the walk required. I hunger to write it as I am spoken to and lifted up above my circumstance and the battles that are against me from all directions. But it is one step at a time until I bring this to finalization, so I just keep on moving in the direction He has shown me, and I do not lose sight of what I am called to achieve so I keep the sound of TRIUMPHANT close to my heart as a weapon of warfare.
NOTE: Spirits need to have legal access to operate and we as ministers also know that these spirits are after The Word, The Truth and will to water it down and rob us of our authority against them. Further spirits are assigned to hinder our growth and find opportunity to get a seat within church structure, ministries and especially DELIVERANCE MINISTRIES healing ministries thus doctrine, teachings, books, manuals, prayer strategies and so on. Certain spirits that operate in the false and counterfeit are religious spirits. One named Orion controls counterfeit gifts and who can dictate how and what and who to minister deliverance to even down to hours of operation.
This network of spirits will allow truth, yes but not all truth and also because of their subtlety they will give only half of the spirits that are attached to any stronghold. Further they block the mind, blocks spiritual understanding blocks The Spirit of Christ Jesus and will hinder any deliverance session so that not all are dealt with. So, this coupled with the spirits of kundalini and divination and python divination and various other spirits from these counterfeit meetings your deliverance ministry your books your teachings your training are watered down and they have a seat where Jesus Christ should have the seat.
Encountering the Real Presence of Jesus
“But if it is from God, you will not be able to destroy it, lest you be found even fighters against God.”
“And whoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him. But whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, not in this age, nor in the coming one.” Matthew 12:32
In my calling to write, knowing the above of Acts 5:39 and Matthew 12:32 and the knowing of the judgment written in James 3:1 “My brothers, do not be many teachers, knowing that we will receive greater judgment. James 3:1 I write not without fear but to deliver those who have been taken captive and those who are partially taken captive and those who are searching to prove signs and wonders and acts of power in the nations today. Gamiael’s wisdom speaks truth yet I see false prophets, prophetess’s and false revival moves still moving across the earth today with this transference of anointing; at the same time the Jehovah Witnesses are still strong today so are the Latter-Day Saints and various other cults that are in the name of God and they are not destroyed but go from strength to strength. I do believe “Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them;” Ephesians 5:11 Most of all I do not want to deny the power of God, knowing Jesus walked in power as The Spirit of Power rested on Him: “having a form of godliness, but denying the power of it-even turn away from these.” 2 Timothy 3:5 “But Jesus said, someone touched Me, for I knew power had gone out from Me.” Luke 8:46
“And the Spirit of Jehovah shall rest on Him; He will have the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and power, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Jehovah.” Isaiah 11:2 I know deception is easily yielded to because of the merry-go-round of religion the years of church attendance so it becomes boring church, religious duty that gives dryness, religious rigmarole that brings death, religious church attendance that gives no life, religious legalism and ritual and performance that controls, and all the idols of religion in one’s life than relationship in His presence then the legal rights of darkness in and over the church and its people. Also, without the ongoing proving of doctrines without the study of The Word the leading of The Spirit, the picking up your cross to truly be born again it has sent many a carnal and bored believer to attend meetings of displays of power and signs and wonders with a yearning for the supernatural and for the ‘times of refreshing’ that is offered. Many people go to lying signs and wonders and “bear this beautifully” never testing the spiritual phenomena but engaging in these works believing God will not give them a stone when they have asked for bread or a snake when they have asked for a fish (Matthew 7:9-10), but they have not accounted for the Word that declares: “He who digs a pit may fall into it; and one breaking a wall, a snake may bit him.” Ecclesiastes 10:8 “Why have you broken down its walls, so that it is plucked by all who pass by the way? 13. A boar out of the forest wastes it, and the beast of the field feeds on it.” Psalm 80:12-13 “…the Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some will depart from the faith, cleaving to deceiving spirits and teachings of demons, in hypocrisy of liars, being seared in their own conscience,” 1 Timothy 4:1-2 “…one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully.” 2 Corinthians 11:4 NASB
“…in which you then walked according to the course of this world, according to the ruler of the authority of the air, the spirit now working in the sons of disobedience;” Ephesians 2:2 “Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false … because they refused to love the truth.” 2 Thessalonians 2:11, 10 “be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatever we sow, that shall we also reap.” Galatians 6:7 “cursed children; 15. Forsaking a straight path, they went astray following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness. … 20. For if by a full knowledge of the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, they have escaped the defilements of the world, and again being entangled they have been overcome by these, then their last things are worse than the first.” 2 Peter 2:14, 15, 20 “Then he goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and entering he dwells there, and the last things of that man become worse than the first.” Luke 11:26 “Abhor that which is evil” “Keep yourselves from evil” “Have no agreement with darkness” “Keep back from every form of evil” “Do not partake of the table of demons” “Walk in the light as He is in the light” “Depart from all unrighteousness” “Flee idolatry” “Nor give place to the Devil” “not fall into a snare of the Devil” (Romans 12:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:21-22; 1 Corinthians 10:21; 1 John 1:7; 2 Timothy 2:19; 1 Timothy 3:7) When I first came to The Lord in October 1995, I was attending a Baptist Church and in this time the Brownsville Revival at Pensacola and Toronto was seen as a true Christian experience for two of the Pentecostal churches I often visited in 1996. I was attending a Wednesday night renewal with two men Pastors who had brought back the Toronto blessing, and then on a Friday night I attended a meeting for homeless and street kids. To make mention here, I left the Baptist Church after receiving the gift of speaking in tongues and attended that Friday night church on a Sunday for three years but left out of a root of rejection to find acceptance and love of the brethren. At this Friday night meeting by a male leader over time I was given Pensacola video tapes and two books written by Benny Hinn “Good Morning Holy Spirit” and “The Anointing.” Believing “those” in authority “knew 74
truth” and reading both books and believing the manifestations that Benny Hinn noted about the seven steps of intercession to take you into travail I was deceived into desiring this so I yielded and started to manifest in these ways. I believed I was experiencing the power of intercession as this ‘thing’ manifested through me the seven steps often then once for hours at a public meeting I kneeled with my hands up groaning like a cow. After watching the Pensacola videos, I had ‘a heaviness’ all day and walked like I was weighted down under the glory / heaviness of God and groaned from my gut out loud, I was told this was the anointing. Two women considered very spiritual at this Friday night street meeting were also displaying the same manifestations, so to me it was confirmation that it was the manifest presence of Jesus – yet it was counterfeit with no scriptural truth. I was deceived by darkness to believe the Holy Spirit was all over me as many others said the glory is so heavy. But a real daily presence is light and fluffy as the psalmist said “I can run upon a troop and I can leap over a wall.” (Psalm 18:29). It profited me nothing and my body was weighted down and I sounded like a sick cow – no one bound this work of darkness! Two people from a Charismatic church who I did not know or had I ever seen before came round to what I thought was to look at something I had for sale but said the Lord had told them to come and tell me what I was experiencing was not of God but of the Devil. “…if perhaps God may give them repentance for a full knowledge of the truth, 26. And they may awake out of the snare of the Devil, having been taken captive by him, so as to do the will of that one.” 2 Timothy 2:25-26 That was the truth I had been taken captive and it took me some years to be set free from demons and I was left with the fear of powers of demons so over those years I wrote a book “Grace in Demonic Affliction” and “The Abominations of Occult Practices with Prayer Strategy” in my pursuit to seek truth to find the victory. The can of worms that opened up of the demonic from that first encounter of false spiritual power of intercessory travail and the Pensacola videos gave reason for demons to surface to play Holy Spirit, and in such different attacks and torment that I wished many a time I’d never become a Christian. If I had of gone to Mental Health they would have classified me, medicated me and hospitalized me but I knew in my inner woman it was a
battle I had to fight as I knew that I knew I was up against demons and powers of darkness and the only way out was the only way in. My freedom came by the study and application/obedience of His Word (Psalms 107:10-22), the study of the kingdom of darkness, the building up of former desolations of generations and those of my own transgressions through repentance and renunciation and deliverance. Through this it has given me the discernment to know the true presence from a false presence of powers of darkness; I have wasted nothing of my walk and milked it all in writing books so that others do not have to endure brokenness or demonic darkness for any more time than they have too. These bizarre powers that are given credence at Pensacola, Toronto, Fresh Fire or any other who have received the transference of anointing are not experiencing Gods presence but works of darkness disguised as works of Light. I was easily deceived to believe the counterfeit as I was a babe easily led by those in authority as I had no knowledge of sound doctrine (2 Timothy 4:34) and I had not been set free from the sins of the ancestors or my own curses for my transgressions prior to becoming Christian. This is why today I know the signs of power displayed by slaying in the Spirit that bring forth effects of vibrating and shaking and bouncing and deep bellowing groaning of intercession are seductions in the guise of righteousness. However, I have been to an evangelist tent meeting in town when my heart was filled with rebellion because of the anger of the demonic that had surfaced in my life when the man holding the meeting said there is someone here who is in rebellion and that was me as I was the only one to raise my hand so I went out for prayer. At that tent meeting a second time having hands laid on me I willingly fell down, I did not swoon or feel a great force knock me down or do I recall any great power to have caused me to lose my strength but there is a tangible or evident difference of power when He manifests Himself for service (Acts 4:8, 31; 13:9; Ephesians 5:18) and here on a prayer line if you choose to yield you just go back in the arms of a catcher to lay on your back as it is comfortable and safe to lay in a stronger/greater presence of Christ Jesus Spirit. I believe this is format or formality or a way of service that Pentecostals and the Charismatic do church ‘carpet time’. But this is where the darkness has infiltrated by their powers and all this slaying to knock down swooning shaking trembling bouncing is the counterfeit. “Satan is a mixer.” If he finds anything to be ninety-nine percent pure, he tries to insert one percent of his 76
poisonous stream, and this grows, if undetected, until the proportions are reversed. Where it is known that certain meetings will contain a mixture of good and evil when supernatural manifestations take place, believers should keep away from them until they are able to discern truth from error.” 1. [PennLewis 119:1996] – this is excellent wisdom. In those early days I have been to a fire revival meeting where it was difficult to walk or stay standing when you went up on the carpeted area that was assigned for prayer and those who held the meetings could not stop laughing to preach or teach. This meeting at Caloundra Queensland was part of the Toronto transference. Never at any other meeting have I ever collapsed or had a power so strong that it has knocked me down on my back or my front, but I have experienced at this fire revival meeting a difficulty to keep walking to get to the front to receive prayer – this I have renounced. I have also experienced electricity go through me to wake me up when by demonic power I was put asleep driving a pan tan truck for a health care company. This was what awakened me to then see centimeters between myself and the other oncoming vehicle. Many, many times afterwards the powers of darkness would put a power of sleep on me whilst driving until I learnt how to warfare before finding their grounds. I make mention of this as many have experienced electricity go through their bodies at revival meetings is this false or true, I know mine was His power to save my life. At the evangelist tent meeting in town power was displayed at each meeting and there were two women who were rolling supernaturally a distance and rolling back and there was a ‘glory tunnel’ to see if you could stay on their feet to make it out to the other side and lots of laughter was happening in and around the glory tunnel by these same rolling women. But I have come to know and believe with any true presence of power or greater presence of The Spirit of Christ Jesus at work the false has to put their display there to discredit His power and cast doubt on the His work like the rolling women. To make mention here I do believe the Welsh Revival of Robert Evans originated from Jesus Christ, but mixture brought fear, doubt and destruction. Further what Jessie Penn-Lewis wrote in her book War On The Saints about how darkness operates I have experienced firsthand. The deception of passivity, the counterfeit of Holy Ghost the groaning the heaviness the misunderstanding how Holy Ghost works in your spirit not through your soul or body and that we must have full use of our facilities as partners definitely not in passivity or any emptying out for Him to takeover. 77
Mixture of powers is evident in most church altar calls but we are asked to separate the precious from the vile in our lives (Jeremiah 15:19) and to continue to be sanctified. Kundalini Serpent does come down a generational line especially from forefathers being in Freemasonry. It is awakened in true or false revivals when the person has believed that the manifestations of others at these meetings are given from The Holy Spirit so it will do likewise. It also manifests to bring a shadow of doubt against the true presence of Jesus Christ but only because that person has given it grounds prior and believes its type of manifestations on others are produced by The Holy Spirit if not it is not permitted to manifest. I know a woman who is aged and when she has gone out the front for prayer and falls back her head goes from side to side very, very fast and she believes it is Holy Ghost. I have in the power of The Holy Spirit bound that still and seen her head stop shaking, but she will not listen that it is the counterfeit. I have seen her been thrown backwards against the wall and she still believe it is the power of The Spirit, and to add she ministers in a deliverance / healing ministry and a prayer line and is highly esteemed. Deception is so great, and these people need to be prayed out of it and we need to be bold to tell them of their deception even if they will not listen. I believe His presence can be greater but not what you see given credence at revivals. In my own life I know that His presence “His sweetness” becomes more evident in prayer and in praise and worship, also when operating in the ministry gifts of The Spirit (Luke 8:46) but my full intelligence is always clear and I have full use of my faculties of my mind will and emotions and this is the way it is meant to be. We are not to yield in passivity for Him to ‘possess us’ or take over that we become empty or like a zombie and or be as if we are the Holy Ghost we are to be fully conscious of His works through us. After ministry His presence and power dissipates to the measure and or the ‘norm’ I daily walk in by faith and by the truth of The Word. So I live by the knowing of truth not by feelings for it is such an area for fabrication of spirits and powers pretending to be Holy Ghost. We are not called to go by our five senses and or what we feel for this is deceptive ground and the area the darkness works in to deceive and we at all times are to discern good from evil. The Holy Spirit is in our spirit and He is a Spirit and we discern and commune in our spirit (John 4:24) not out of our five senses. Passivity and yielding to empty self out is deception and breeding grounds for spirits of darkness and specially to take over for counterfeit and control.
It was at the second tent evangelist meeting I received a vision of a house, a white cement rendered Spanish style house with red bougainvillea’s growing up the right hand side of the front wall. The vision never came to me in a trance it just came across my mind with clarity and as it came it then went away. Seeking deliverance ministry maybe about two months later I got an appointment with a deliverance ministry in Brisbane Queensland and their home was the exact house I had in that vision. They were trained and under Hegewisch Baptist Church from Indiana Illinois where Pastor Win Worley’s understanding of the demonic was passed on and practiced and left for us in his writings and sermons. These books have trained, taught and blessed me and has revealed much about the kingdom of darkness than any other material I have ever read. When I met Clive and Dorothy Kirk, Dorothy said to me God has something big for you but He is not telling me what. Dorothy was also one of my spiritual advisors until her and her husband’s retirement and her need to care for him. As Jesus said “if Satan cast out himself he is against himself and his house is divided so how will he stand.” (Matthew 12:25-26) If darkness gave me the vision then they divided their house to a very great measure as that was the beginning of my deliverance from darkness and today I am free from ancestral and past transgressions and have been given tremendous authority in The Spirit of Christ Jesus against the kingdom of darkness. Further I have gleaned much knowledge of their kingdom through that one ministry “The Extended Hand to Freedom” that was within the house in the vision. The knowledge I have learnt from Pastor Win Worley’s writings have been invaluable and I have been richly blessed by the resources in that ministry and the deliverance ministry and counsel received. I know the vision I received was of The Holy Spirit whilst I was ‘laying on my back’ (Joel 2:28) as the fruit over years from this has been undeniable and I know to date his power increases when He ministers to us or through us (Luke 8:46; Ephesians 5:18; Acts 4:8, 31, 33 13:9; 1 Corinthians 2:4). Yet I know I saw at that evangelist tent meeting a mixture of powers operating through believers, but I believe and discern to date the meeting did not originate from any counterfeit power or source to pour out spirits but they were there with their forces and deception operating. Many, many years later I went to a meeting where orbs came on photographs where oil and gold dust and guided visits to the third heaven were happening and I willfully engaged in these meetings for two days without first
going to the Word to test if the particular signs that were to be expected and encountered were a biblical New Testament experience. Because I believe there is a real presence of Jesus Christ that can be yielded to or a greater release of His Spirit’s power I went and yielded in reckless abandonment to what was happening without first researching. Even though I did pray and every day the week before, but because The Holy Spirit did not caution me in my spirit or say they were or were not false, I thought this must be of God because He is saying nothing neither is He giving me any instruction but He is silent. I was not grounded enough in the Scriptures concerning signs and wonders or powers and it was on the third meeting my antenna went up when I felt a definite transference of a spirit come on me so I sat down to observe out of my spirit. Also it troubled me that the man who was given the most credence to give prophetic words, words of knowledge and confirmation to what was happening in the meetings was displaying involuntary jerking of arms and legs flicking out. Holy Ghost’s silence was a teaching lesson because from this counterfeit meeting I learnt that I have to go to the Scriptures first not to Holy Ghost – the Spirit and the Word must bear witness. I learnt that I am not to believe every spiritual move but to test the spirits to see whether they are from God (1 John 4:1). I learnt to prove all things first (1 Thessalonians 5:21) from The Word then to hold on to sound doctrine (2 Timothy 1:13) and then remain and or abide in that sound doctrine (2 Timothy 3:14). I learnt not to follow the crowd or those in authority but to continue to study to show myself approved (2 Timothy 2:15) by research for testing signs and wonders. We have to rightly divide the Word of truth even when we think we have a hold of truth. We have to search the scriptures to compare so as to see if these works line up with days of old and those in the life of Jesus and His Twelve Apostles and His other men and women disciples. Further we even have to seek to find if there is hidden mystery written, and get understanding of what are the signs in the heavens and earth for this end time hour. If not your conscience can get seared that there may be no return to repentance so you will remain in mixture of powers operating in our lives and giving witness to truth that is false and I tell you now infirmity will surface as you go into your old age – ‘rotten fruit from the root’. Further the devils will keep leading you to the counterfeit meetings and the churches and stay in membership to the churches that have accepted the false as true.
Truth is we have to question all works of powers signs and wonders in the gift of discernment of spirits along side of scripture, knowledge and doctrine. As it has been said before, “you cannot take the spiritual out of warfare” it’s like taking the skeleton out of a body and still expecting the body to stand and walk. Now to the Scriptures, we realize Hebrews thought Hebrew as they were Israelites who had a love of Torah, a love of the writings and Prophets, a love of the feasts, a love of the Sabbath and they had the fear of Yahweh as they were raised to respect and fear The Almighty God and to reverence Him; so to voluntarily bow down low on their faces was not only a Torah understanding but cultural act. It is shown in the Old Testament that the presence of God came literally in thick darkness, clouds, fire, brightness, shinning and light. Great trembling fell upon people out of fear and I believe in most accounts by their own accord they bowed their faces to the earth out of awe fear and reverence. Daniel we see lost his strength “stunned” out of fear and this is witnessed because of the other men “a great trembling” (v 7) fell on them that they fled to hide; they did not fall but ran for their lives in fear. There is a truth that because of fear the color can come out of the face and he was stunned to lose strength that a weakness overtook him to fall on his face because of fear, I believe it could be the manifest presence of The Son of God in his vision but not the angel Michael (Daniel 10:21) present as in the New Testament Joseph or Mary did not fall down when Gabriel appeared. “And in the twenty-forth day of the first month, as I was by the land of the great river, which is Tigris, 5. Then I lifted up my eyes and looked; And, behold, a certain man was clothed in linen, whose loins were wrapped in fine gold from Uphaz. 6. His body was also like the beryl, and his face looked like lighting; And his eyes were like torches of fire, and his arms and his feet in color liked polished bronze, and the sound of his words were as the noise of a multitude. 7. And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision. For the man who were with me did not see the vision. But a great trembling fell on them, so that they fled to hide themselves. 8. Then I was left alone, and saw this great vision; and there remained no strength in me. For my color was turned within me to corruption, and I kept no strength. 9. Yet I heard the sound of his words, then I was on my face, stunned and my face was toward the ground. 10. And behold, a hand touched me and set me shaking on my knees and the palms of my
To say that the priests could not stand because of being slain in the presence of Yahweh is assumption. Recall the cloud was thick darkness (1 Kings 8:12), therefore they could not stand to minister “because of the cloud” of “the thick darkness.” “And it came to pass, as the priests went out from the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of Jehovah, 11. And the priests were not able to stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of Jehovah had filled the house of Jehovah. 12. And Solomon said, Jehovah has said that He would dwell in the thick darkness.” 1 Kings 8:10-12 “so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud; for the glory of Jehovah had filled the house of God.” 2 Chronicles 5:14 We all understand that in this dispensation we are His Temple and He dwells in us and walks with us through His Spirit of Christ Jesus therefore I believe we will not be experiencing Yahweh as they did in the days of old at the Temple of Solomon (Matthew 28:18). “Do you not know that you are a temple of God, and the Spirit of God dwells in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16 “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, there I am in their midst.” Matthew 18:20 “In many parts and in many ways of old, God spoke to the fathers in the prophets; 2. In these last days He spoke to us in the Son, whom He appointed heir of all; through whom He indeed made the ages; 3. Who being the shining splendor of His glory, and the express image of Hid essence, and upholding all things by the word of His power, having made purification of our sins through Himself, He sat down on the right of the Majesty on high, 4. Having become so much better than the angels, He has inherited a name more excellent than they.” Hebrews 1:1-4 “For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10. And having been filled, you are in Him, who is the Head of all rule and authority,” Colossians 2:9-10
“And coming up Jesus talked with them, saying, All authority in Heaven and on earth was given to Me.” Matthew 28:18 When we consider the scripture below the pouring out of His Spirit it has no reference to coming under The Spirits power to be knocked to the ground, but prophesying and dreaming and seeing visions and these were experienced by the disciples of Jesus. However other scriptures must be viewed to see what happened to them when they were given visions and were prophesying. Pouring out of My Spirit is in the contextual view for all those who believe, not just a select few or not just for a Kingdom purpose for Him to come off our body as He did in days of old, but for a sealing to remain until our day of redemption. However, there is the reference to a work of power of The Spirit to give “signs in the heaven and in the earth: blood and fire and columns of smoke.” This I believe is what Yahweh allows or has ordained in the signs of war, natural events and man made mistakes. “And it shall be afterwards, I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy; your old men shall dream dreams; your young men shall see visions. 29. And also I will pour out My Spirit on the slaves and on the slave girls in those days. 30. And I will give signs in the heavens, and in the earth: blood and fire, and columns of smoke. 31. The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of Jehovah.” Joel 2:28-31 The account of the woman with the issue of blood who touched the hem of His garment (Luke 8:43-46) did not fall down with the power that left Jesus (v 46). This account did fulfill prophesy of His miracles (Isaiah 42:7, 53:4, 35:5-6) and of Jesus coming with healing in His wings (Malachi 4:2); the wings have a Hebraic understanding for their prayer shawl and this is what she touched, His fringes of His prayer shawl, but there is no record that she fell in the crowd. I have heard that Billye Brim has had a literal cloud appearing in her meetings, but I have also watched Kenneth Hagin and Kenneth Copeland move in the spirit on touching others that they vibrate and laugh. So I do not believe Yahweh is visiting them nor do I believe He visits the Church in a cloud today as He has given all power and authority to His Son to rule and reign (Matthew 28:18).
What I do see is what exists in a person and the transference of power of darkness with the shaking and vibrating which are the manifestations of Kundalini of the eastern religions ascended master’s of their false Jesus and the performances of other demonic spirits connected and related to the counterfeit. This false jesus spirit has no trouble praising or worshipping its jesus or falsifying a love for the real Jesus because that is its religious function and assignment. To add I have discerned this spirit say Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, over and over and over and over again and this brings passivity to keep one under its spell and it in control over the mind. Touching Gods anointed does not mean that we are not to make mention of those who teach another gospel or that we cannot name them publicly (2 Timothy 4:10, 14; 3 John 9; Galatians 1:8) we are called to expose them in wisdom (Ephesians 5:11). I do not believe that these experiences are from Yahweh or the works of The Spirit of Christ Jesus. Further I believe word faith ministries preach in mixture of teachings that are contrary to truth therefore overall they preach a different gospel (Galatians 1:6-9). The prosperity doctrine, confession and or name it and claim it and the faith doctrine I believe are heresy so I do not listen to their teachings as I believe they have had portions of their soul taken captive to do the will of that one to teach their doctrines. However, this does not mean they are not children of God who are not sealed with His Spirit and that Yahweh is not a work in their ministries just that they have mixture of truth and error in their teachings like all of us and I believe they genuinely serve Yahweh and Jesus Christ by their heart felt convictions to honor Him and teach His Word to want to bless and build up His people. The following scriptures are used by most to confirm signs of His power at work to knock someone down or ‘slay them in The Spirit’. However, to ‘interpret them it is not as simple as a prayerful approach believing it will be given straight away or comparing mine or our own experiences with what is written or even writing with clever intellectualism. Neither can we interpret scripture with our imagination nor common sense for revelation is spiritually discerned; neither with any personal axe to grind or as is the tone of my heart in distress of wanting to shake people and say wake up and listen you have become deceived. The New Testament gives the reoccurring truth of The Old Testament always. We read of Jesus miracles of healing and casting out of demons in 84
hundreds of prophecies. We see the feeding of four and the five thousand in 2 Kings 42-44. We see the miracle of the coin in the mouth of a fish is witnessed from the very beginning of Adam having dominion over the fish of the sea (Genesis 1:28) to Jesus as the second Adam (Romans 5:12-19; 1 Corinthians 15:45). The Disciples saw that Jesus had dominion over the sea and the fish of the sea as at His command they caught that many fish that their boat or nets could not contain them (Luke 5:4-9). Knowing this Peter obeyed the command to “throw in a hook, and to take the first fish that comes up; and when you open its mouth, you will find a shekel.” (Matthew 17:27) Again the shekel bears witness that the Son of God the sinless Son on Man has no need to pay the tax for the atonement of the soul as the Law required for the service of the Temple (Exodus 30:15-16) as He is the Lamb of God and the earth is His and all that is in it (Psalm). Progressive revelation is throughout all the Word as seen of Jesus Christ from seed of woman in Genesis 3:15 to Daniel 7:13-14, 9:24-26 Son of Man and time when He would be born. Matthew 1:1, 20:28, 28:18; Galatians 3:8, 16, 4:4; Genesis 22:18; Hebrews 2:14, 6:14 to the King of Kings and Lord of Lord in Revelation, Genesis 49:10- Revelation 5:5. John 5:45, 6:14, 7:40; Acts 3:22-23; Psalm 2:7, 22:7-8-Matthew 27:39-43, 45-59. So signs and wonders and acts of power in the church must be seen and witnessed by progressive revelation and recurring truth – must be. To get a more accurate interpretation we know a passage can be interpreted in several ways, like is He speaking to Israel or the Levitical Priests only, or to men only or does this apply only within that particular Kingdom time structure. We also know that to interpret scripture it has to be seen in text and context given and again scripture is to be verified with other scriptures. Further we realize we interpret within the framework of, are these scriptures a song, a poem, a prose, a promise, a command. We also have to consider is there a mystery hidden in Old and New Testament (Ephesians 3:9; Romans 11:25, 16:25; 1 Corinthians 2:7-12) as to why we cannot find an interpretation the types of signs, wonders and power within church experience. However mystery is always unfolded by the witness of scripture; for a brief example that of the mystery hidden of the church she was in the rib taken from Adam (Genesis 2:23; Ephesians 5:30, 32; 2 Corinthians 11:2-3) and she is the Bride of the second Adam – Christ Jesus. The scriptures also are to be interpreted with culture and history and prophetic fulfillment then, now or to come; even the person used to write them. We could go as far as what book is considered a primary source as Matthew
and Luke are compared to what is believed the primary source Mark to get a fuller understanding and interpretation.â€™ 2. [Lectionary studies] But all these signs of power have to be seen and brought into our New Testament Kingdom structure of The Blood Covenant not just from the Abrahamic Kingdom or restored Kingdom of Nehemiah or the Historic Kingdom or any other Kingdom prior Blood Covenant. I do not see the wisdom in interpretation of these scriptures by applying a Biblical truth. Or how a truth can be taken from a Biblical event, in an allegorical way; for example King David slaying Goliath can show us Christâ€™s victory over darkness by His cross and this gives us the picture that we can have victory over darkness in our life today. This also gives us a picture that Jesus will return to battle Armageddon and overcome another giant Anti-Christ and it also can speak that we will always have battles with darkness as we go forth to our inheritance of the future Heavenly Kingdom in the next age to come. Yet this way is an application but it does not give the accurate interpretation of the passages where King David killed Goliath even though there are spiritual truths in David killing Goliath from that time to the present to the future to come. If we do not know theology and doctrine it is easy for devils to peddle their error to seduce us into receiving their deception and spirits attached. Further if we do not realize that Jesus came teaching as The Word made flesh and Paul was chosen to be master builder (1 Corinthians 3:10) to be given the grace and power to expound Jesus teachings and His truth from days of Old and the days He walked among us then we will not realize that truth is continuously witnessed â€“ and Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 4:6 that we are not to exceed what is written but wisdom teaches we are to search the scriptures (Acts 17:11) for what is written about signs miracles wonders and acts of power. Therefore, we can receive erroneous truth by a biblical truth attached to phenomena such as drunkenness in the spirit because drunkenness was written when those were filled with the Spirit and spoke in tongues at Pentecost. The widow received supernatural oil to justify the appearance of oil, or manner in the dessert to justify the fairy floss manner appearing in meetings, or the streets of heaven are made of gold to justify gold dust falling from the streets of heaven [this is the fingerprints of the god of Baal] or in the presence of the Lord I fullness of joy to justify outrageous laughter. This is insufficient interpretation and obvious grounds for demons because of studied neglect. Interpretation cannot be by spiritualizing an experience with a word picture or an application of a Biblical truth or event or story to fit a current experience as 86
this takes truth away from its original intent and we then have a pretext to easily disguise falseness. To find a truth than that of the usage of testimony of an experiential truth such as being slain in the Spirit it has to be approached within a taught structure to interpret if this experience is not or can it be a true Biblical experience in this present Blood Covenant of Kingdom living. Just because I had a vision after having hands laid on me and falling backwards willfully to receive within a practiced norm of doing church it does not mean that all the powers present were that of Jesus Christ. The vision was from The Holy Ghost but mixture was in me and particular spirits capable of giving visions I had not at that time been delivered from could have given the vision. And mixture and or darkness were present and can be the foundation of a meeting than the foundation having its origin from Jesus Christ in The Spirit of Jesus Christ. “And when Solomon finished praying, then the fire came down from Heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of Jehovah filled the house; 2. And the priests were not able to go into the house of Jehovah, because the glory of Jehovah had filled the house for Jehovah. 3. And all the sons of Israel were watching, when the fire came down, and the glory of Jehovah was on the house; and they bowed their faces to the earth, on the pavement, and worshiped, and gave thanks to Jehovah; for He is good, for His mercy endures forever.” 2 Chronicles 7:1-3
We read above that of literal fire and this picture of fire can be applied to Christ suffering, and to the work of The Holy Spirit whom by a refining fire deals with our sin and iniquity. Fire also can be applied within a truth of the fire to be kept going within our heart to continue to remain on the altar by presenting our bodies as living sacrifices, yet this does not give the true interpretation of fire from heaven within the context of this passage. In most Pentecostal churches they use words that have biblical truths attached to them; their intention is not to pervert the Word but to use it in a broader spiritual meaning so we cannot tar everyone or just Pentecostals or charismatic people with the same brush or critique with studied negligence – “everywhere in the Word people fell over backwards in judgment” when this is the way they do church.
The usage of the words like fire, they can say something like “release your fire Jesus to burn up the sin that keeps her bound in her life from moving into deeper holiness, release to her a baptism of fire your refiner’s fire.” Many know that there is no true baptism of fire but they are spiritualizing a biblical truth to get an outcome. This is why we need to discern all meetings that use the same ‘catch phrase’ or words or biblical picture words for it can be said that it is just a style within a Charismatic or Pentecostal structure of their form of service or worship and or the way they do church. For example, some denominations sing hymns only, or some will not use black currant juice or leaven white bread but grape juice and unleavened bread or some won’t dance or use any instruments for it’s the way they do church. “I indeed baptize you in water to repentance, but He who is coming after me is stronger that I, whose sandals I am not fit to carry, He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit and fire, 11. Whose fan is in His hand, and He will cleanse His floor, and will gather His wheat into the barn. But He will burn up the chaff with fire that cannot be put out.” Mathew 3:10-11 When you read the Word it does not teach a baptism of fire but teaches the baptism in water and the baptism of The Holy Spirit. If we look again at Matthew 3:10-11 “He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit and fire, it continues to read whose fan is in His hand, and He will cleanse His floor…” therefore it speaks of a blessing than a judgment. The Word does not teach a baptism of fire but it does teach the fire of judgment (Revelation 20:15; Matthew 23:33). The usage of the word “fire Lord fire, give them fire Lord give them fire” is again a portion of The Word and not a doctrine. When you look at Matthew 3:10-11 in the context it is written John is talking to The Pharisees and Sadducees who came to his baptism and calls them “Offspring of Vipers” (Matthew 3:7). He goes on to say “who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?” then in verse 10 he tells them of that wrath which is fire. We are looking at the judgment of fire and they knew (Malachi 4:1) of Sheol and or Hades (Deuteronomy 32:22; Psalm 18:5, 116:3; Isaiah 14:16; 33:10-14). And as Israelites they knew of the valley of Hinnom (2 Kings 23:10; 2 Chronicles 28:3) referred to as Gehenna where there were real perpetual fires for sacrifice to Moloch (Jeremiah 7:31) which taught them the picture of eternal punishment of fire. To make mention here, the land of Israel had many other gods and goddess worship and many Jews worshiped these gods as well as Yahweh.
I do believe many know the real presence and power of Jesus Spirit and many ministers in the nations make use of these words for they realize their intent in praying and saying them is word picture. We cannot take from the Pentecostals or the Charismatic’s their alter out the front for prayer – the area that is designated out the front to either praise and worship or dance or go to receive prayer for healing, deliverance or counsel. This is their style of worship, this is their normative, this is their way of service, this is their tradition, this is their way of life within their understanding of Kingdom living. I believe Jesus Christ meets believers there in a greater measure as they are open and believing and by faith to receive a greater portion of His manifest power (Luke 8:46). Yet I also believe mixture happens at these altars as those who are manifesting in deception have not yet been set free of their deception or closed the doors open from ancestor’s transgressions or their own. Further many do not believe they can have demons so they believe all manifestations are Holy Ghost and many also believe the strange manifestations they see are of Holy Ghost so they desire to experience this so this deception gets grounds. Therefore, it is crucial that we continue to grow up and walk in discerning of spirits and be aware that not everything spiritual is of The Holy Spirit. Allow The Holy Spirit to lead you and train you over and over and over and over again in the gift of discernment and this comes hand in hand with knowledge and understanding doctrines. We must have knowledge of the workings and manifestations of darkness and continue to cleanse our own house of hidden works and grounds of darkness and not settle for less. We also have to know if the church we attend is the house that He wills us to be a part of, truth is there is so much deception and mixture in so many of the ‘Spirit-filled’ churches that this does influence us. If you are trained you will discern the divination that operates in the prayer line and in prayer meetings and the false in the operational of the gifts. I have left three churches to date because of the false signs and wonders they allowed in, today I am distressed (20/6/10) ‘shell shocked’ at seeing the demonic manifestations on someone in authority that I have left a third church. One church brought in a guest speaker with the oil, gold dust and visits to the third heaven, the other a worship leader exposed to Todd Bentley – then oil came out of a woman’s hand further they were also calling forth the Todd Bentley transference anointing. The third one a certain person of authority had aggressive manifestations that are not Holy Ghost yet believes they are. Jesus said “Take My yoke upon 89
you, and learn from Me, because I am meek and lowly in heart: and you will find rest to your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:29-30) I do not believe the ministry of Holy Ghost is to strike at a person’s stomach, then cause her to collapse on the floor whilst delivering the other person of a root of rejection. Neither do I believe the violence that was seen by Todd Bentley’s in ministry to be of Holy Ghost – this is not the anointing but yielding to a network of spirits. To add her husband, the Pastor believes that ecstatic prophecy – the manifestations on Stacey Campbell and others alike is of The Spirit of Christ Jesus, yet if you look and listen with your spiritual eyes and ears you can see and hear this female divination spirit (Please U-Tube Stacey Campbell). The institution within her heart wanted me to attend the prayer meeting and go every Sunday so I did not feel free to attend every fortnight or come and go as I was led of the Spirit. Also I was expected to tithe to the denomination when Holy Ghost had taught me to ask His leading on where He willed the tithe to be distributed as Jesus was the High Priest to whom we give our tithe; not an institution or a denomination or a person or fellowship or a ministry but where He willed. I have been seen as never making a commitment to church or submitting to the Pastors and seen as one who is doing it my way than God’s way as I have gone from church to church and do not ‘conform to their norms’. Yet I follow the truth I understand and feel I would be ignoring my conscience and compromising this truth and the truth is I am to abide in Jesus abide in His Truth (John 15:1-11); I am not called to abide in a church or a church system or denomination and especially not the deceived churches of false signs and wonders or doctrines of devils. We are not to abide in a church that ensnares us to darkness and traditions and lordship of men and women or to think church membership goes hand in hand with our salvation. Wheat and tears have been allowed for a time and Revelation writes that Satan has his seat in the church, but now we are now in the time to leave so as to separate ourselves as a bride for Him only (Revelation 18:4-5). If you continue to research and seek truth you will be awakened to see the church deception and how apostate churches are today. Sad thing is that those in ministry do not intend to deceive anyone but are deceived and captivated themselves believing they are ministering life yet they are ministering death. And then when you break away you are considered the backslider or the one who is deceived and they will even treat you as the enemy – this never ceases to amaze me how cold people become after you confront their false signs and wonders and expose the deception they are under 90
and do not believe as they do; truth is it just confirms the demonic activity in their lives and the stronghold they are under. I can see I had “withdrawals” for leaving that second church for not being at church but little did I realize that church has to come out of me to go back into the church, I have to be in Christ so to speak not in church. Since leaving this third church I have finally realized that relationship and union with Christ Jesus is of utmost importance for out of this will flow the leading of The Spirit. I will not lead myself anymore to sit on a church seat as I will have to leave again, but I will let Him lead me and go in the wilderness where He wanted me to go when I left the second church and this way it will hinder being seduced again by darkness to go back into the deceived churches of signs and wonders and or the apostate church that unknowingly plays the harlot in worshiping demons who are not God. To interpret 2 Chronicles chapter 7, verse 3, “they bowed their faces to the earth” it is evident without any great detail that it is a Torah reverence and fear as taught within their Hebraic culture. There is no evidence of slaying in the Spirit or coming under any power but only that out of their own will did they bow their faces to the earth on the pavement. The scripture gives evidence to custom (2 Kings 4:37) “And when Solomon finished praying, then the fire came down from Heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of Jehovah filled the house; 2. And the priests were not able to go into the house of Jehovah, because the glory of Jehovah had filled the house for Jehovah. 3. And all the sons of Israel were watching, when the fire came down, and the glory of Jehovah was on the house; and they bowed their faces to the earth, on the pavement, and worshiped, and gave thanks to Jehovah; for He is good, for His mercy endures forever.” 2 Chronicles 7:1-3 “And she went in and fell at his feet and bowed herself to the earth, and took up her son and went out.” 2 Kings 4:37 We see brightness and we see Ezekiel fell on his face and was commanded by the Son of Man (Revelation 12:12-13) to stand on his feet. The Holy Spirit then enters into Ezekiel and made him stand on his feet to obey the command of Jesus. In another account below he is stood on his feet, these can both infer the manifest presence of The Spirit stood Ezekiel on his feet.
“As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of the rain, so the brightness appeared all around. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of Jehovah. And I saw, and I fell on my face, and I heard a voice of One speaking. 1. And He said to me, Son of man, stand on your feet, and I will speak to you. 2. And the Spirit entered into me as He spoke to me; and He made me stand on my feet; and I heard Him speaking to me.” Ezekiel 1:28 and 2:1-2 “And I rose up and went forth into the plain, and, behold, there the glory of Jehovah was standing, like the glory which I saw by the river Chebar, and I fell on my face. 24. And the Spirit entered into me, and stood me on my feet, and spoke with me. And He said to me Come, shut yourself within your house.” Ezekiel 3:23-24 I believe awe and reverence overpowers Ezekiel, he was overwhelmed by the glory of the God of Covenant, the God of His Ancestors the God who is and was and who is to come and I believe this is why he falls on his face awestruck fully aware of his sinful state in the presence of a Holy Fearful God. If we encountered this, or allowed the Spirit to stir us to tremble at His Word (Isaiah 66:2) we would collapse in fear by a fearful knowing how much we have not walked in our call to be consecrated unto Him; how much we have not allowed Him to iron out spots and wrinkles to be brought forth as a chase bride, we would see ourselves guilty of ignoring The Word and The Spirits prompting and power to mortify the deeds of the body (Romans 8:13) , I know I would. I believe Samson’s strength and works were empowered by The Holy Spirit manifesting in and through him; I believe Ezekiel could well have been stood on his feet by the power of The Holy Spirit; I believe King David killing the loin the bear and Goliath are the manifest work of supernatural power of The Holy Spirit. I believe the walking on water by Jesus and Peter were the manifest power of The Holy Spirit; I believe these are progressive revelations of the ability and power that can manifest in and through our body by The Holy Spirit. I believe He does this; therefore, He can anoint us to fall under any measure of His power and as that is our practice or way we do church. “And they said to him, We have come down to bind you, to give you into the hands of the Philistines. And Samson said to them, Swear to me that you will not fall on me yourselves. 13. And they spoke to him, saying, No but we will certainly bind you, and will give you into their hand. But we certainly will not kill you. And they bound 92
him with tow thick cords, new ones, and brought him up from the rock. 14. He came to Lehi, and the Philistines shouted to meet him. And the Spirit of Jehovah came upon him, and the thick cords which were on his arms were as flax which they burn with fire. And his bands melted from his hands. 15. And he found a fresh jawbone of an ass, and put out his hand and took it. And he struck a thousand men with it.” Judges 15:12-15 “When he came to Lehi, the Philistines shouted as they met him. And the Spirit of the Lord came upon him mightily so that the ropes that were on his arms were as flax that is burned with fire, and his bonds dropped from his hands.” Judges 15:14 NASB “But in the fourth watch of the night, Jesus went out to them, walking on the sea. 29. And He said, Come! And going down from the boat, Peter walked on the waters to go to Jesus.” Matthew 14:25, 29 “And knowing instantly within Himself that power had gone forth out of Him, turning in the crowd, Jesus said, Who touched My garments?” Mark 5:30 We can no more take this practice off the charismatic or Pentecostal believers then take the stained glass windows from the Anglicans. We are people who have choice to go out the front as part of our service, we are people who talk in other languages under the power of The Spirit (Mark 16:17); we are people who allow utterance of purity of Holy Spirit to bring forth a prophetic words or an interpretation of tongues or to speak words of wisdom and knowledge or counsel, or to pray for us and others (1 Corinthians 12:411; Acts 1:8; Matthew 12:28). We are people who allow the Spirit of God to release His power that it can overwhelm us to fall backward or forwards or even collapse as dead, we are people who do not deny the power of God. Certain songs speak “I love to be in your presence Lord I love to be with you” 3. “Your presence amazes me, your glory surrounds me, when I walked in this room I felt your hands upon me, to think how great your are still you would touch someone like me it’s your mercy and grace you amaze me.” 4. “When I come into your presence all my questions become clear, and for a sacred moment no doubt can interfere, in the presence of Jehovah God almighty Prince of Peace troubles vanish hearts are mended oh yes they are in the presence of the King.” 5.
His presence is undeniable and His presence is so evident and so real and so knowing that when we are trained to discern Him we will not receive any fabrication by darkness. When we are trained in discernment either by ‘hard knocks’ or by maturing under the teaching of Holy Ghost it is undeniable that He manifests Himself in a greater measure, and we are to have total awareness that He is manifesting. To add, there are times we become fearful and sin convicted yet realizing we are the righteousness of God, and this is not in the form of condemnation or a driving worthlessness. When we consider the woman who touched the hem of His garment He knew “that power had gone forth out of Him,” (Mark 5:30) even though the Word makes no record that she fell over in the crowd but came back to Him trembling and fell at His feet on her own accord. It is evident there is a power that goes forth and this cannot be denied or not taken into account for experiencing the real presence and power of Jesus Christ of Nazareth (Acts 10:38). Coming into the presence and power of Jesus Christ can cause you to fall to the ground. The manifest power of the Spirit in the life of Samson can kill a thousand men and break the bands of new rope that they are likened to weak flax; then The Holy Spirit can manifest to literally knock us off our feet or stand us on our feet. This power caused Jesus and Peter to walk on water and these are all evidences of His power. I know when we yield to His power in us and coming through the person praying for us we do feel a power that weakens our body to drop. The conversion of Saul’s account records that Saul fell on the earth when Jesus appeared to him in a great light. “And falling on the earth” here has implication of a supernatural power at work, also fear, trembling and reverence to bow down, yet the Word writes “falling on the earth” that implies not of his own accord. This scripture is another of reoccurring truth for progressive revelation from those mentioned in the Old Testament. “But in going, it happened as he drew near to Damascus; even suddenly a light from Heaven shone around him. 4. And falling on the earth, he heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me? 5. And he said, Who are you, Sir? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom you persecute. It is hard for you to kick against the prods. 6. Both trembling and being astonished, he said, Lord what do You desire me to do? And the Lord said to him, Rise up and go into the city, and it will be told you what you must do. 7. But the men who were traveling with him had been standing speechless
hearing, indeed, the voice, but seeing no one.”
Paul and the other men with him encountered a light that shone very bright and they all fell to the ground both trembling and being astonished. Acts 26:12-18 writes of this account: “in which also traveling to Damascus with authority and decisionpower from the chief priest, 13. At midday along the highway, O king, I and those with me saw a light from haven shining around me, above the brightness of the sun. 14. And all of us falling to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me, and saying in the Hebrew dialect, Saul, Saul why do you persecute Me? Is it hard for you to kick against the prods. 15. And I said, Who are you, Sir? And He said, I am Jesus whom you persecute; 16. But rise up and stand on your feet, for it is for this reason I appeared to you to appoint you a servant and a witness both of what you saw and in what I shall appear to you 17. Having delivered you from the people and the nations, to whom I now send you, 18. To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the authority of Satan to God; in order that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and an inheritance among those being sanctified by faith in Me.” Acts 26:12-18 The scriptures bring witness that falling on the face in the presence of Jesus is both an act of reverence and fear and because of the manifest presence of Jesus. Ezekiel reveals this and Samson bears testimony to this as does Jesus and Peter and Paul and we read Jesus has power that He recognizes to leave Him or go out from Him. “While he was yet speaking, behold, a radiant cloud overshadowed them. And, behold, a voice out of the cloud saying, This is My Son, the Beloved, in whom I delight; hear Him. 6. And hearing, the disciples fell on their face and were greatly terrified. 7. And coming near, Jesus touched them and said, Rise up, and do not be terrified. 8. And lifting up their eyes, they did not see anyone except Jesus alone.” Matthew 17:5-8 The Disciples fell on their faces willingly out of reverence and fear, maybe not out of any manifest presence of Yahweh. The cloud was radiant and overshadowed them and a literal voice was heard and they were terrified. Many scriptures verify self-will to fall on the ground than the manifest presence and power of Jesus or Yahweh. Scripture also teaches us that around
the throne the twenty-four elders bow down and or fall to the ground to worship by their own accord (Revelation 4:10). “And it happened as they struck, and I remained; even I; then I fell on my face and I cried out and said, Ah, Lord Jehovah! Will You destroy all the remnant of Israel in Your pouring out of Your fury on Jerusalem?” Ezekiel 9:8 This account below I believe he fell on his face awestruck, in reverence and because of the manifest presence of Yahweh and again we see the manifest work of The Spirit in verse 5 “and the Spirit took me and brought me into the inner court.” “And behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east. And His voice was like the voice of many waters. And the earth shone from His glory, 3. And the appearance of the vision which I saw was as the appearance which I saw when I came to destroy the city; and as the appearance that I saw by the river Chebar. And I fell on my face. 4. And the glory of Jehovah came into the house, the way of the gate facing eastward. 5. And the Spirit took me up and brought me into the inner court. And, behold, the glory of Jehovah filled the house.” Ezekiel 43:2-5 This account he fell on his face in the manifest presence of Yahweh. “And he brought me by the way of the north gate, to the face of the house. And I looked, and, behold, the glory of Jehovah filled the house of the Lord! And I fell on my face.” Ezekiel 44:4 Fear has caused those keeping guard to be shaken out of fear and to fall as dead, not The Holy Spirit, not the angel but because of the presence of an angel, Jesus had risen and was not there. “And, behold! A great earthquake occurred! For coming down from Heaven, and coming up, and angel of the Lord rolled away the stone from the door, and was sitting on it. 3. And his face was as lighting, and his clothing white as snow. 4. And those keeping guard were shaken from the fear of him, and they became as dead. 5. But answering the angel said to the women, You must not fear, for I know that you seek Jesus, He having been crucified.” Matthew 28:2-3
In the following we read a cohort of some Roman soldier guards, chief priests and some Pharisees led by Judas went to arrest Jesus. Whoever went back to the rear fell to the ground; they had time to walk back to the rear of the company so maybe out of mockery whilst Judas went up and kissed Jesus so they fell to the ground. However, given other accounts it may be read to say it was His manifest power that caused them all to fall to the ground as He declares Himself I AM thus declaring I go by MY own accord that it would fulfill prophecy. “Therefore receiving a cohort and under officers from among the chief priests and the Pharisees, Judas came there with torches and lamps and weapons. 4. Then knowing all the things coming upon Him, going forth Jesus said to them, Whom do you seek? 5. They answered Him, Jesus the Nazarene, Jesus said to them, I AM! And Judas, the one betraying Him, also stood with them. 6. Then when He said to them, I AM, they departed into the rear and fell to the ground. 7. Then again He asked, Whom do you seek? And they said Jesus the Nazarene. 8. Jesus answered, I told you that I AM; then if you seek Me allow these to depart-9. That the word might be fulfilled which He said, “Of those whom You gave to Me, I lost not one of them.” John 18:3-9 In the following account Simon Peter was in a trance: It can be said that tradition had him on his knees facing towards Jerusalem, falling into a trance is not being slain by The Spirit yet The Spirit has put him in a trance for a vision; it is not mentioned that he fell on his face but Daniel 6:10 gives teaching that he is most probably kneeling following custom. “And on the morrow, these passing along on the road, and drawing near to the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray, about the sixth hour. 10. And he became hungry, and wished to taste food. But as they were preparing an ecstasy fell on him. 11. And he saw the heaven being opened, and a certain vessel like a great sheet coming down on him, being bound by four corners, and let down onto the earth,” Acts 10:9-10 “Now when Daniel knew that the document was signed, he entered his house (now in his roof chamber he had windows open toward Jerusalem); and he continued kneeling on his knees three times a day, praying and giving thanks before his God, as he had been doing previously.” Daniel 6:10
When we read of Paul who was then named Saul he does not display any vibrating, shaking or manifestations like at these revival meetings, but as quickly as he fell down he does have the ability to get back up. “in which also traveling to Damascus with authority and decisionpower from the chief priests, 13. At midday along the highway, O king, I and those with me saw a light from heaven shining around me, above the brightness of the sun. 14. And all of us falling to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me, and saying in the Hebrew dialect, Saul, Saul why do you persecute Me? It is hard for you to kick against the prods. 15. And I said who are you, Sir? And He said, I am Jesus whom you persecute; 16. But rise up and stand on your feet, for it is for this reason I appeared to you, to appoint you a servant and a witness both of what you saw, and in what I shall appear to you, 17. Having delivered you from the people and the nations, to whom I now send you, 18. To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the authority of Satan to God in order that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and an inheritance among those being sanctified by faith in Me.” Acts 26:12-18 It can be disputed that the power in the presence of Jesus caused them to fall to the ground, but it could be said that they fell to the ground out of fear and terror and reverence as many other accounts reveal Hebrews reverence by falling to the ground and out of fear they fall on their faces? Pastor Pauly writes “A good Midrash pays attention to what was NOT said as to what WAS said.” 6. [Pauley 1:2010] in his article he teaches about the power of The Lord upon Elijah and the power may not have caused him to out run the horse and chariot (1 Kings 18:46) because it can be said that their custom has a runner go before a King (see www.pastorpauley.com/tzedekah/articles/1kings_18_46.html). Regardless when we consider Ezekiel when we look at Samson and David they bear witness that the Spirit can cause us to go beyond our natural ability just like Jesus and Peter walked on water (Matthew 14:25-28). John on Patmos fell at His feet as dead in the manifest presence of Jesus and has dropped as dead; this has implication that when you drop dead you have no control over dropping. Recall, today we have the manifest presence of Jesus Christ in His Spirit, The Spirit of Christ Jesus and where two or more are gathered He Jesus Christ is in the midst of us.
“And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet, as dead. And He put His right hand on me, saying to me. Do not fear. I am the First and the Last, 18. And the Living One; and I became dead; and, behold, I am living forever and ever Amen. And I have the keys to Hades, and of death.” Revelation 1:17-18 Jesus walks on water (Matthew 14:25-27), He is not walking in His own flesh and blood as Son of Man who can eat food, but it is evident that The Spirit of The Father and or Holy Ghost walks Him, just like The Spirit of The Lord broke the new ropes on Samson’s arm and empowered him to kill the thousand Philistines. People fall on their backs for conformability; they are caught before they fall to hurt themselves by a person behind them who lays them down. People by faith and by desire and fully conscience want to fall down to have the pleasantness of the presence of Jesus emanate strongly. Yet I have seen those who fall down by choice when there has been no evident power in the atmosphere, also I have been pushed to make it look like they carry power. When we praise and worship from the heart we know there is a difference in His presence and if you are ever in a gathering when there is worship in The Spirit it is such a beautiful sound and the presence of Him in the atmosphere is so evident and sweet. I know His presence can vary in my own life from being quite strong to know He is there to where are you Lord. Yet in these times if I know I am just carnally minded and I have not sinned I stay in faith believing He is there or it is as simple as my sins and iniquities have distanced me from Him so I ask Him to search my heart and give me grace until I can discern my sin for confession. I also know I get very happy in His presence throughout the day when I am walking in the Spirit. I also know in His presence I am very peaceful and very worshipful to sing praise songs (Galatians 5:22-23); but never fits of laughter as in the days I took LSD when laughing was a thing you could not stop due to the drug and the sorcery. I have asked myself could He cause this type of laughter. Can He make someone walk on water? Can He stand someone to their feet? Can He cause someone to kill a thousand Philistines? Can He cause someone to break new rope? Can He remove a tumor from a body? Does He have access to the central nervous system? Yes, to all of these, so I would say He has the power to make someone go into a fit of laughter? But does He, I believe this type of manifestation is not Him but the mockery and seduction of devils to ensnare 99
and keep ensnared. I believe His measure of laughter and happiness is controlled not as if you were on LSD or in a drunken state, as there is laughter under the power of His Spirit. We know the demonic pervert the scriptures to get the front row seat in the house of God and the front row seat in your house that is your body. They give manifestations of the feeling of literal fire on the body, they do and can give laughing fits when they have taken someone captive to do their will, they shake, they tremble, they speak in tongues they jump your body up and down whilst you lay down, they throw you around the room, they cause the hand to shake and they counterfeit the gifts and power to cause someone to fall as dead or fall down frontward or backwards. The enemy has to infiltrate the church to steal God’s glory and His witness of truth of His Word. It can even be considered that the New World Order or the Illuminate has to infiltrate the church to bring it under its power to bring it to submission for end time mind control and what better way than religious control and pretending to be the Spirit of Jesus Christ to counterfeit in Spirit-filled churches. To make further mention the enemy is already in the church by Jesus rock and the kingdom of darkness with their forces of Illuminate, Witches and Warlocks financed these beginnings (see the several testimonies on YouTubes of John Todd a Former Illuminate). The Kingdom of Darkness is at war with the Kingdom of God and many are being inflicted by these other gospels and these false signs and wonders and powers because they refuse to do the training needed for combat. If we refuse to “search the scriptures to see if these things are so” (Acts 17:11) we are disobedience to His instructions in righteousness and show no love of the truth or His ways and can expect to be deceived. If we neither study what is the true anointing or what is the doctrine of laying on of hands, or what is the baptism of The Holy Spirit or the doctrine of signs and wonders and believe that anything outside the boundaries already written are “a new thing” (I am told they have been saying this for the last 30 years) and a sovereign work of God who can move any way He wills, then you will believe anything and you will receive everything that comes hand in hand with this strange fire. “Oh foolish Galatians, who bewitched you not to obey the truth…” Galatians 3:1
“And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given to us an understanding that we might know the true One and we are in the true One. In His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and the life everlasting. 21. Little children, guard yourselves from idols. Amen.” 1 John 5:20-21 “Watch yourselves, that we may not lose the things we worked out, but that we may receive a full reward. 9. Everyone transgressing and not abiding in the teaching of Christ does not have God. The one abiding in the teaching of Christ, this one has the Father and the Son. 10. If anyone comes to you and does not bear this teaching, do not receive him into the house, and do not speak a greeting to him. 11. For the one speaking a greeting shares in his evil works.” 2 John 8-11 “And He came to Nazareth, where He was brought up. And He went in, as was His custom, on the day of the Sabbaths, into the synagogue, and stood up to read: 18. The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me; therefore He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to captives, and new sight to the blind; to send away crushed ones in deliverance; 19. To preach an acceptable year of the Lord.” Luke 4:16, 18-19
Pride is a Deceptive Monster
being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the 1 Timothy 3:6
Consider this; there are various spirits of pride who will hinder ministry and scheme to entrench the demonic into church ministry. Win Worley notes in “Leviathan” Booklet 19 that “Leviathan-king over the children of pride has seven heads who are little pride, arrogant pride, spiritual pride, rationalization, justification, logic, pride in knowing and using these things.” 1. [Worley, 1996:32] and “his seven heads attempt to imitate the seven lamps of Revelation” 2. [Worley, 1996:18] and he “resides in the Holy Place and is a counterfeiter.” 3. [Worley, 1996:18] He also writes in “Proper Names of Demons” that Leviathan is a “first lieutenant of Lucifer, very proud, beautiful, intellectual spirit: Orion enters with any compromise of the Word of God, Orion controls counterfeit gifts, false peace, piety. Prince Charming host of intellectual and philosophical spirits, religious spirits, false gifts to give a veneer of spirituality.” 4. [Worley, 1996:10, 24]. Pride needs to be brought to death by the Holy Spirit as this is an iniquity that we should not be bonded to; and because they also work in various ways to obstruct not only our progress, but also His ability to work through us for His Kingdom plans and purposes and for His progression in us and ministry within the church. Those who are puffed up in their own pride and ego can become deceived by the false and the counterfeit and those who want to be seen and heard by the locals or by the nations can also become deceived by the false and those whose gifts ‘just’ have to be recognized and seen by the Pastors and those in leadership likewise can become deceived. Not only can pride bring deception but also the iniquity of fleshy power, the drive for money, self-glory, monument ego such as “look at me and my church, we have signs and wonders” and recall, behind all iniquity is the demonic spirit associated. If the Pastors controls and or orders their sheep around, or demands of the sheep in such a way that they lose their rights to make their own choices; or 102
control them with the use of shaming messages, abusive correction and or abusive mannerisms, then witchcraft has a seat of authority in the church, as does Anti-Christ abuse; both of which would love to enlarge their borders by bringing in the false signs and wonders and both Anti-Christ and Jezebel spirits counterfeit the gifts and works of the Holy Spirit. Having pride transgressions in your life will hinder you from seeing that there is anything false within you so you need to ask Jesus to bring to death and demolish every bond of iniquity of pride that would keep you from seeing or being free to the false in your life and in the life of the church. Be not deceived, the true and the false can and does look alike; it is important to build up the foundations of desolations of past generations so we can see with more clarity the false moves in our own lives and in our church and in the nation today. It is just as important to renounce the various specific former transgressions of the ancestors on both sides of the family as it is to discern the false signs and wonders in the church today. If you go to the website, www.fruitfulvine.com.au you will find there is ample teachings and prayer strategies on Freemasonry that is a very wide open door and other topics with prayer strategies to uproot the demonic that keeps us blinded to the counterfeit, the false and to the deception in our lives. Recall Jezebel wore a veil over her head or a shroud over her head and this is one of her weapons of warfare. She uses the power of bewitching to keep herself covered from view so that we will not see the grounds of her works, her doctrines and her weaponry that she uses against us. This principality has much grounds that may be hidden and wrestling against us, and believe it or not, they do and will resist the ministry of The Holy Spirit in every way they can. Demonic activity is just as much a part of the church as the seats are and remember witchcraft is working in the church whether you believe it or not for no ministries have purity of Holy Ghost as the devil is still on earth and so are we with our transgressions and iniquities that give spirits access into our lives. In Mark 16:17 it is written “these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name they shall cast out devils” (KJ) but under these false moves of this principality believers are imparting devils as they are submitting themselves not to the Scripture, but to the doctrine of devils and works of darkness to drink her wine and to fornicate with her in spiritual Babylon – ‘confusion of religion’ thus committing adultery on Yahweh.
“With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 6. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus;” Revelation 17:2, 6 KJ “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4 KJ To come against any demonic strongholds, the ark must always go before us, as the battle is not ours but the Lords; the power and authority is in going in The Name of Jesus and or in His Spirit. The Spirit of Christ Jesus, not the title of Pastor, Prophet or Teacher or Christian. True warfare should be His call, His weapons, His power under His directive not ours. The “I give you power and authority” is speaking of The Holy Spirits power and authority not our positional power and authority. Therefore, this is the ark that goes before us, He goes before us, He does the warfare by His presence and power operating through us in either His utterance or moving us along in what to say or what to do and where to go. Strongholds can be demolished in far less time if we let the ark go before us. To make mention here reviling demonic spirits is out of order scripturally and this gives them rights to attack us, especially if we curse cuss or come against spirits that we have no business fighting. When we revile spiritual authorities we have come out from under God’s protection and broken the spiritual laws of correct warfare (Zechariah 4:6), therefore they can counter attack. We do not gain more power or authority by giving cheek and or lip to demonic spirits or spirits from principalities, powers or world rulers or spiritual host of wickedness in heavenly places. If you have reviled these or other spirits, repentance is necessary for the closing of the doors through which they have gained entrance to attack and torment. To revile or challenge Jezebel disrespectfully or with such an attitude of pride and flesh “I will not tolerate that spirit in my church” will result in counter attacks by her spirits under her family principality to outwork payback, further it is their nature to seek vengeance. Also to attempt to cast her out of the church without first uncovering her grounds is fruitless warfare; and she will retaliate in such a way as to come in the door when she is mocked and reviled and challenged and one way may be 104
by setting your church up to receive false signs and wonders then the spending of money especially on building or a new building coming in the doorway of pride. Then she will strategize to make you crash and burn, further it is allowed as He has judged and the Pastors Leaders the church is brought to shame. The truth is intercessors and prophets and pastors and so on do not operate in purity of Holy Spirit and accurate doctrines and have hidden grounds of darkness in and over their lives so there are doorways to deceive and out work her strategic plan to convince a church they need to have more of God’s power operating in and through them and they will claim that this is seen with signs and wonders. Consider what Yvonne Kitchen writes “Priests in churches wave incense balls in the congregation. It was originally believed to fumigate demons out. The Smoke of Witchcraft: 1. Blinds 2. Seduces us 3. Anaesthetizes us 4. Confuses us 5. Hypnotizes us 6. Puts us into a trance 7. Brings ungodly laughter 8. Brings insanity False incense brings a manifestation of: The demonic False signs and wonders The occult – blood appearing on walls Dogs barking, lions roaring Alchemy- materialization of metals False warfare – anger” Fleshly warfare only invites torment and or attack; if you let Him give you power and authority and or the strategy no harm will come upon you for you are staying with the boundaries of Scripture. “For the rest, my brothers, be made powerful in the Lord, and in the might of His strength.” Ephesians 6:10 His strength is the Holy Spirit. “And signs will follow to those believing these things, they will cast out demons in My name…” Luke 10:17 In my name is in The Holy Spirit. 105
“And the seventy returned with joy, saying, Lord even the demons are subject to us through Your Name…” Mark 10:17 Subject to us through Your Name is subject to the Holy Spirit in us. “But if I cast out the demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come on you.” Matthew 12:28 As clearly written it is The Holy Spirit casting out demons through Jesus, therefore when going in His Name we also go with The Holy Spirit who does the casting out and the warfare. “…but the comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom, the Father will send in My Name, He shall…” John 14:26 The Holy Spirit is the One who is The ‘in His Name’ as He was the One who The Father sent in His name to work in and through Jesus as written below and in Luke 4:18. “Jesus, the One from Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went throughout doing good, and healing all those having been oppressed by the Devil, because God was with Him.” Acts 10:38 Again as clearly written The Holy Spirit is the One who worked in and through Jesus healing and addressing and casting out demonic spirits and most assuredly in the manifestation of utterance through Jesus of Nazareth. “THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED, 19. TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD.” Luke 4:18-19 The Spirit was the One who was the power to preach, proclaim, release, recover and set free, when we line up with The Word power and authority is operating in His strength not ours as Prophet, Pastor, Minister, Christian as we read Jesus came in line with His Fathers teachings “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me to…preach…proclaim…release…recover…set free…” “…the greatness of His power toward us, the ones believing according to the working of His mighty strength.” Ephesians 1:19-20
His strength His mighty strength His power is through the manifestation of The Holy Spirit. “But the manifestation of the Spirit it is given to every man to profit withal…” 1 Corinthians 12:7 The manifestation of The Holy Spirit was given in the days of the Apostles and or the early church and He is given today in the days of the church. A battle the body of Christ encounters today by another demonic strategy is the lie that all Charismatic and Pentecostal churches operate under false and counterfeit spirits full stop as the gifts and the anointing stopped with the Apostles and the establishing of the early church. Or everything supernatural in Charismatic and Pentecostal churches is by the demonic and this movement is the spiritual and physical ruin of many Christians – the lying words of religious lawyer spirits in dead dry religion. The truth is we are not to believe every spirit and we are to try the spirits to see whether they are of God (1 John 4:1) but the ruin of the church is not because of the Charismatic or Pentecostal church but the mixture of spirits in and over the individual lives of those in these churches who have not discerned deception the false and the counterfeit. They fear demons, they have not uprooted former desolations of former generations and they have had inadequate deliverance “oh no we dealt with that” or “no that was addressed” “oh no I asked Father to deliver me from generational transgressions when I came to Christ.” But curses and grounds of darkness need to be specifically found then repented of and renounced and broken as they are like a cob webs with much bracing to keep them intact and each brace has to be demolished to untangle the web. The gifts and anointing are as much as for today’s church as they were in the lives of the Apostles, disciples and churches of yesterday (1 Corinthians 12:4-11, 28-31) but the believers are not discerning darkness from light and are taking everything supernatural experience as of God. Then when oppressed and tormented and inflicted by the false they leave the spirit filled churches and blame the deception on the Charismatic and Pentecostal movement when they have allowed mixture of both light and darkness to operate through them for they have not discerned the false operating or in certain meetings, therefore they opened themselves up to more demonic and more deception and this always turns back to oppress, suppress and depress. 107
What you are seeing is the not only the grounds of spirits for going to false meetings but the spirits of former desolations (Isaiah 61:4) that have not been raised up that are giving ground to demonic spirits to act out the works of The Holy Spirit and to bring deception so as to fortify their existing grounds. We are not cocooned by the love of God or the blood of Jesus for God is Righteous and His Holiness still demands judgment for our ancestor’s transgressions and ours (1 John 3:4, 3:7-8; Ephesians 2:2; Romans 1:18, 2:8; 2 Peter 2:14, Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:5-6) and if we play in the devils playground we can all expect those toys to be a part of the furnisher in our life/our house/His temple/His body. Thou shall not, you shall not, regard them not and walk not, are as much a command today as they were in Old Testament (Romans 7:1, 2:13, 3:31, 7:13; Matthew 5:17-18 also compare Blood Covenant 2 Peter 2:13-16, 2021 against Luke 11:26) And “you shall no longer walk the ways even as also the rest of the nations walk.” (Ephesians 4:17) is as New Testament as Old Testament. In my book www.breakingcursesforfreedomanddeliverance.com “The Abomination of Occult Practices with A - Z prayer strategy” (to purchase go to www.triumphantministriestoowoomba.com.au ) I have written a teaching to show Christians can have demons with an A to Z list of occult practices with definitions so as discern and to uproot grounds of darkness from family generations on both sides of the family and those we or they have knowingly or unknowingly practiced. Our own transgressions give grounds to demonic spirits to indwell therefore to bring their overall strategies against us and through us against each other in the body of Christ. We all unknowingly and knowingly have areas or grounds of demonic spirits in and over us, then when we start to move in a greater portion of The Spirit the enemy has to put us back in our former position so we cease to operate in a greater measure of The Spirit’s anointing(s) and gifting(s). On the other hand some believers in the body are so influenced by the demonic that the Word remains watered down and they are under deception as they are “carried away with the error of lawless men and lose their own stability” (2 Peter 3:17) because the demonic strongholds say “I don’t have time to study God’s word” “I’ve got other things to do” ‘I’m no good at study” “I can’t get anything out of the Bible” “I go to sleep and get so tired when I go to read or study truths of the Bible” “I’m too tired.”
You need to pray to be able to stand and not only stay standing but to discern the difference of your mind thinking, the demonic thinking and the Holy Spirit imparting to your spirit. You need to pray as the demonic will come alive and start to pretend to be Holy Spirit and bring strategic works from all angles to stop you from moving in the gifts and anointing of the Spirit if you are a part of the spirit filled Charismatic and Pentecostal churches. Again you need to pray to be set free of former desolations that give these demonic spirits grounds to remain in and over your life and the power to press in and to seek the keys that will inform you to set you free. Also you need to pray to be set free in order to learn as there are works of both the flesh and the demonic blocking you; especially if you do not have a love of the Word which motivates you to make time to study and test and approve all things. Many believe that demonic spirits cannot be in ‘truly’ born again blood brought Christians, however this is contrary to written scriptures when you set your heart to know this doctrine of ‘can and do Christians have demons indwelling the body’ you will surely discern we do. I have also written a book and still writing this “Can and Do Christians Have Demons” going through every account of the demonic in the New Testament to prove that yes Holy Ghost sealed Christians can have demons indwelling in the body. Consider firstly: “But the Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some will depart from the faith, cleaving to deceiving spirits and the teachings of demons, 2. In hypocrisy of liars, being seared in their own conscience…” 1 Timothy 4:1-4 Maybe you think you know everything and have it all down pat about God’s Word and you are not deceived, or perhaps you believe you have never been to any meeting(s) that operates in false signs or wonders or the signs and wonders you experienced are truly of God’s anointing or what you operate in is purely Holy Ghost as you walk to close to Him to be deceived. Or maybe you think the Lord led you there and you know there is mixture there so the devil cannot touch you and every prayer and word and prophecy just had to be Yahweh because He just made special allowances for you! And or the glory cloud you experienced and the oil on your hands and the gold dust and the shaking and the hand shaking and the fits of laughing and each account of falling under power was all pure Holy Spirit, then selfdeception and deception is alive and doing well against you.
I exhort you to prayerfully consider will to be deceived and selfdeception and ask Him how much deception you may be under because you have believed you have never been deceived or you have in faith asked for an egg and Jesus would not give you a scorpion (Luke 11:11-13). Pray for we all do get taken captive by deception no matter who we are: “…if perhaps God may give them repentance for a full knowledge of the truth, 26. And they may awake out of the snare of the Devil, having been taken captive by him, so as to do the will of that one.” 2 Timothy 2:25-26 If any of us who are practicing these things and will not listen, He will leave us in our deception and in our false sense of security and power and signs and wonders that is really powerlessness deception. Further the demonic will come in and out of playing Holy Ghost to torment, condemn, confuse, distort, divide, infirm, oppress and bring lustful desires. Again it is the same principle as Eve’s deception; “this snare will increase your grief and your groaning and you will turn further away from the truth than you are now.” If they cannot torment you out to bring you fully out of the Pentecostal and Charismatic churches so as to go back to dead dry religious formality where the Holy Spirit is stifled and kept quiet; then they will continue to be a counterfeit Holy Spirit bringing forth false through you so other believers lives may become defiled and shipwrecked as they work their deception to water down the truth and the power of The Holy Spirit available to the body of Christ today. The spiritual truth is no fertilizer of the Word or no water of The Word and the Spirit the cankerworm will eat at the little true fruit you do have. So in deception they will have you thinking you are being used in the Kingdom with signs and wonders but you have a mixture of both light and darkness therefore the darkness will overtake you sooner or later once you are ensnared in the false signs and wonders. “Beware lest there be among you a man or woman or family or tribe, whose heart turns away this day from the Lord our God to go and serve the gods of those nations; lest there be among you a root bearing poisonous and bitter fruit.” Deuteronomy 29:18 We all will be held accountable for our personal life, and if you are a Pastor for what you allow to come against your flock. Each of us will be held accountable for our decisions for not discerning the spirits when the Word warns us about the wiles of the devil, the false moves and false teachers and 110
He instructs us that we need to know sound doctrine by study of His Word with the Teacher the Holy Ghost who helps us to test and prove all things (1 John 2:27). None of us want to be like these or under those like these, yet some are unknowingly like these and under these because of legal rights of darkness in their live and their own sinful flesh: “the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule at their direction; my people love to have it so…” Jeremiah 5:31 “…people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own liking, and will turn away from listening to the truth…” 2 Timothy 4:3-4 This includes bowing down to the multitude of a congregation to please them above God’s truth of His Word. Or because you want fortune and fame to go anywhere and have everything that money can buy. Or because you want to make a name for yourself or because of your unhealed pain or wanting to be seen and heard all round the world or you want to put up a statue of yourself in town square as a name in history or to make yourself monetarily rich. Has God appointed unto you such a call? You may need to ask yourself why you sinfully covet these types of calls and types of signs and wonders in your life of your church. If the Holy Spirit does not will to give you the gift of healing or signs and miracles according to those given in the Word, then why are you moving the arm of God yourself to receive such? It is costlier to yourself than you are realizing. “And God has appointed in the church first…” 1 Corinthians 12:28 “…to some He made…”
1 Corinthians 12:28
“…the One Spirit distributes to each as He wills.” 1 Corinthians 12:11 The Holy Spirit can be vexed (Isaiah 63:10) or grieved (Ephesians 4:30) because you have demons from false revivals or from false signs and wonders as they are contending against Him and yourself as they bring their agenda into your own life or the life of your local church or if you have a global audience. If you have received the spirit Kundalini from these so called “glory gatherings” and you would have he will remain in your life as will all the other 111
spirits that came in with these great deceptions and to add to this the curses and or judgments from God for the transgressions for being involved in these false and counterfeit meetings. I exhort you to continue to seek Him to reveal where you have unknowingly become deceived and most of all prove for yourself so you yourself are convinced what is true and what is false in the churches today so you are not tossed like the waves in the wind by every wind of ‘fire’ and ‘glory’ that comes on television or into your nation, town or city or church or suggested you attend by a friend in Christ. Does spoon bending cause someone to follow the occult? Throughout the occult and written in their symbolism is gold and it represents the sun-god Ra and this is one of Lucifer’s names; the false "light of the world", the counterfeit messiah. I exhort you to consider how many of these meetings of signs and wonders replace the preaching of The Word to invoke a display of these types of signs and wonders? This is not the format to save people from their sins. “So will My Word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of god to salvation for everyone who believes …” Romans 1:16 Jesus does not need gold dust or feathers or manner or oil to get our attention or to waken us up to obey His Word. Read the whole chapter of Isaiah 55 and refresh or renew your mind! Jesus died on the cross for our sins, He rose on the third day and this was witnessed by believers and unbelievers and or followers of Him. This is gospel message and this is the attention He has willed for us and prophesied to us with the accompanying signs and wonders also outlined and prophesied. Therefore, you yourself have to weigh up the information just between you and The Word and The Teacher the Holy Ghost. You need to be convinced and convicted in your own heart who and what is false otherwise you will never get out of the deception you are in today and you will fall into deception again and again or greater deception or you may even experience your faith
being shipwrecked or at the worst hear the Lord Jesus Christ say “you had no love of the truth depart from me for you have worked on the side of evil.” (Matthew 7:21-23) “Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me; There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me. So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they walked in their own counsels.” Psalms 81:8-12 The bottom line is “if you refuse to listen then He will give you over to these false signs and wonders. In other words, if you are so bent on receiving them as truths then He lets you go right ahead play with ‘fire.’ "... their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD; they will not satisfy their souls, nor fill their stomachs, because it became their stumbling block of iniquity.” Ezekiel 7:19 (NKJ)

Ruth Heflin and Bob Shattles were the original leaders of this modern â€œrevivalâ€? of these types of signs and wonders. They both proclaimed that disease and sickness could not remain in the presence of what they supposed were the glory of God. However both Ruth Heflin (60) and Bob Shattles (66) died of cancer yet both were promoting the gold dust, oil feathers and laughing phenomena.

Manifestations included uncontrollable laughing, roaring, barking, hissing, crying, shaking, ect. Some devotees became mute or unconscious. Many felt themselves being infused with feeling of great joy and peace and love. At other times the “fire” was so overwhelming they would find themselves involuntarily hyperventilating to cool themselves down… (Spiritual Counterfeits Project)
www.unleavenedbreadministries.org “The laying on of hands bringing the lack of self control and drunkenness in the “spirit” are also from the Kundalini spirits of Yoga. There is nothing but negative about drunkenness of any kind, spiritual or physical, in the Word. This revival magnifies a loss of self-control, which the Word says is a fruit of the Spirit”

I’ve come to bring the fulfillment of the prophetic words spoken to intercessors, I have come for those who have been like Hannah-they have prayed, waited and carried a promise in their hearts. There will come a time when God has heard and I will release the Samuel.”
www.wikipedia.com http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samael “Samael (also Samuel) is an important archangel in Talmudic and postTalmudic lore, as well as Christian tradition and demonology. He is viewed as the evil Angel of Death. He is a prince of demons and a magician. He was a guardian angel of Esau and a patron of the sinful empire of Rome. Samael is sometimes considered to be the true angelic name of Satan. The etymology of his name is sometimes thought to be a combination of “Sam’, meaning ‘Poison/venom’, and ‘el’, meaning “of God”, thus he is the “poison of God”.
http://www.pawcreek.org/open-bible-dialog/strange-fire-at-gods-altarscalled-the-holy-ghost “Without question the spirit of Antichrist is the controlling emotion taking the church world to hell. A very slim number of the saints have any spiritual discernment to recognize what is happening. There are a multitude of virgins in God’s church without oil in the vessel and they sit with wide eyes while the new religious personalities feed unclean religion into their minds and spirits. No wonder Jesus told the foolish virgins, “Verily I say unto you, I know you not.” This strange fire is blinding and there is only one means of true discernment. The Holy Ghost and the truth of Scripture will identify these strange spirits and there is no other light to protect you. Nothing drives this strange fire like the music behind it. From the first day that contemporary and rock music entered the church the design was this strange fire. When you see the “Harlem Shake” in churches and the spirits of Kundalini, the picture is becoming clear to wise saints who are remaining true. Sadly, those that have been taken captive are riding the wave right down the path to destruction. If Jesus tarries ten more years there will not be 1% of the churches and ministers left to proclaim the truth. Let’s try to understand what the Bible calls “STRANGE FIRE.” You always go to the “law of first mention” to understand truth. Recently, I posted two articles that were on one subject, “The Fragrance of Pentecost.” It shows the beauty of God’s anointing in the anointing oil prepared for the tabernacles in the wilderness. This anointing oil was absolutely of the purest form. It was four parts expensive fragrance and one part olive oil. It had to be exact and could never touch someone unclean. The four parts of fragrance were a type of the person of the pre-incarnate Christ and only one part oil. The oil had one purpose and it was to unite and deliver the fragrance. In other words the anointing is always four parts Christ and one part Spirit. We are anointed to make known Jesus Christ and never to manifest flesh. At any point or time when the flesh is more visible than the fragrance of Jesus Christ, strange fire has appeared. It may seem innocent at the beginning, but it is always destructive. 117
The first time that God manifested His fire to a sacrifice was in Leviticus ten. This occurred very soon after the anointed oil was created by the Art of the Apothecary. Moses and Aaron had offered a sin offering, a burnt offering and a peace offering to the Lord for the people. The Scripture said, “And there came a fire out from before the LORD, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces.” (Leviticus 9:24) This occasion was so powerful and convicting that the people fell on their faces. It’s easy to see that when Aaron’s sons saw the spectacular results they wanted to be seen by the people just as powerful with the Lord as their father and uncle. They did not have God’s anointing so they had to produce their own anointing. “And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not. And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.” (Leviticus 10:1-2) The Bible does not tell us how they produced their fire, but it sure did not come from the presence of God. They probably devised a trick or used some slight of hand to set fire to their censer. The fire was called “strange fire” because it was not holy fire. From that day to this present time our Father has always provided His own fire when men have worshipped Him. The day of Pentecost is a perfect example. When the day of Pentecost was fully come, God’s fire fell on 120 souls who had patience to wait for God to show His glory. “And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” (Acts 2:2-4) Every time there was a move of the Holy Ghost in the Book of Acts, it was spontaneous. Nothing was done to create the activities of God’s Spirit. When we manifest any activities or action of the anointing, it must be God’s visitation or the action, emotion, or manifestation is “strange fire” and rejected by the Lord. Anytime a person is anointed by the Holy Ghost all the glory will automatically exalt the Lord. We must protect this anointing when it moves on our life by shrinking from one moment of self-glory. If any person receives any glory themselves at that moment, the Holy Ghost will withdraw His sovereign Hand and Fire. God’s servant must never forget that this “Treasure of His Holy Anointing” is upon our “earthen vessel.” For this very reason the anointing is
almost unknown in this present day. It will return when we repent, sanctify ourselves, then let God sanctify us and revival will occur. What we see in the present church world is “strange fire” and it is developing to the point of blasphemy. When I saw Todd Bentley explode on the stage in Pensacola, Florida, I knew the last stage of the false anointing had arrived. It is no longer just strange fire, it’s blasphemy and God will shortly judge. In the meantime, God is looking for Godly saints to totally surrender so He can fully pour out His Promise of the Latter Rain of Pentecost.” “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 KJ
“In ‘that day’ many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we preach in our name, didn’t we cast out devils in your name, and do many great things in your name?’ Then I shall tell them plainly, ‘I have never known you. Go away, from me, you have worked on the side of evil!’” Matthew 7:21-23 Phillips Modern English
http://newsletters.cephasministry.com/gold8.99.html â€œWhen an image of worship WAS made, it was often of GOLD. For example, the rebellious Israelites in the wilderness gave their gold earrings to Aaron, who made them a calf of gold; the people then had a visible focus of worship and nearly died as a result, when it angered God. (Exod 32:1-4) Another gold image, made with good intent, was the ephod of Gideon created with the goodwill offerings of a grateful people. However, the ephod became a focus of worship, an idol, and led the people astray. (Judg 8:24-27) The Bible specifically warns against gold and silver as objects of desire, even in the worship of God. On the other hand God's commandments, his wisdom, his love and his everlasting goodness (all invisible attributes) are to be cherished: Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. (Prov 8:10-11) My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: (Prov 8:19-20) The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. (Ps 19:9-11) Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold. (Ps 119:127)â€?
_____________________________________________________________ Appendix 6
“Why do some writers, theologians and teachers and so on come up with different interpretations on the same passages? So the following are those wonder whys; Is it because of studied negligence of not gathering enough scriptural evidence? Or they do not have copies of old, old, old, old texts of The Hebrew and The Greek? Or is it because writers take the study of other writers as gospel than prove the scriptures themselves? Or is it because they believe he or she is an anointed one of God and they have the knowledge and the revelation? Or is it because error causes us to prove for ourselves what is truth. To add, information certainly gets to the pain of the heart – the junk of sin and attitude –the junk of wrong beliefs ‘it’s a man’s world’ ‘it’s men need only apply’ ‘the promise of spiritual leadership of all positions is for men only’? Or is because of the influence of spirits of python, divination, pride, religious control spirits, mind control spirits, religious, legalistic, heresy, error and perversion of the gospel spirits? Or is it because of ego, pride and lack of humility wanting to be a god/goddess in their own right and or works of their flesh to be someone, love of praise? Or is because of not being able to discern the teaching presence of The Holy Spirit, as opposed to the teaching presence of demons and the teaching 121
presence of one’s own flesh interpretations? Or is it because of denomination doctrine so ingrained one writes with assumption? Or is it because of reading the verses as they read according to one’s own understanding and not seeing that, that is not the understanding implied. For example the word order has at the least 14 meanings. Even the way a sentence reads can imply two or more meanings in its sentence structure. For example; “For husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body.” The last part of this sentence can be read, as the husband is the savior of the body, as the beginning of this scripture refers to the husband and the tail end can be seen as summing up the statement. Or is it because of lack of background knowledge of custom and cultural background and time of its first writing? Or is it because of lack of grammatical knowledge of Hebrew and Greek studies? Or is it because of lack of lexical knowledge from the support from word studies? Or is it because of lack of knowledge of theological writings or heresy in theological writings? Or is it because one builds a doctrine on a word; one builds on an incorrect translated word from a specific favored version. And even the idolatry of venerating a version as the best, the most accurate when it may not be? Or they have not used the law of three fold witness? Or is it because one has written their book, published it, then had revealed additional revelation?
Or is it because one wants to make a name for oneself because of unhealed brokenness and rejection? Or write to appease the inward brokenness so they write so as the book reads the way they themselves want it interpretation to be? Or is it because one does not approach the Bible as a book containing mysteries with an attitude like a detective to gather all evidence to unravel truths? Or is it because one reads each version as the infallible inspired Word of God with no contradictions, no discrepancies no verses that read counter to their contextual view or no translation errors, word errors, no added words, language errors, grammatical errors when they have much perversion from original writings? Or is it because it is not understood from a Hebraic understanding but a Greek mindset? Or is it because they uphold the Talmud and the different rabbinic writings to too much esteem and believe every and or the majority of their interpretations are correct. Or is it because they uphold theologianâ€™s writings with too much esteem to believe every and or most of their interpretations are correct. Or it is because they have not tested the fruit of those brining the message those teaching the doctrines those being used for signs and wonders? Or is it because it is not understood from the custom and cultural background considering Kings and their ruling governments with their laws and ways? Or is it because one does not see the allegorical meanings intended as one reads the words as literal and does not know the intended ancient meaning and intention of words, or the symbolic, spiritual, mystical or figurative meanings;
Or is it because their conscious is seared (1 Timothy 4:1-2) and they are taken captive ensnared to do the will of that one, the evil spirits who know how to water down truth (2 Timothy 2:25-26)? Or is it because they have not realized that signs and wonders must be validated and fulfill the scriptures. Or is it because they have not allowed truth to validate truth? Or is it because they have failed to see where the Old Testament has prophesied beforehand to give and bear a minimum threefold witness? Or is it because they have failed to see progressive revelation, failed to see reoccurring truth of the Old Testament but writes and says it is a new things? Or they all have not written teaching to be in accordance to the pattern of The Word and the witness that the New will point to the laws and precepts upon which works of miracles signs and wonders are performed and released. â€œknowing this first, that every prophecy of Scripture did not come into being of its own interpretation;â€? 1 Peter 1:20 None of us can lay claim to all understanding and revelation of Old and New Testaments as we are a body of believers made up and made known to all nations (Romans 16:25-26).â€? [Malligan, 189:2013]
_______________________________________________________________ Appendix 7
â€œActs 2:4 marks the beginning of the church age in Christianity as some 120 disciples are filled with the Spirit on the day of Pentecost. Peter, always failing in the Gospels, takes on a new boldness and confidence in the Spirit. Peter preaches that the prophecy of Joel demonstrates God's promise to pour out the Spirit upon believers and that amazing signs would follow (2:17-21 cf. Joel 2:28-32). Peter spoke that the promise of the Holy Spirit had been received (2:33). Therefore, Peter admonished the people to repent, be baptized in Christ's name, and thus receive the Spirit in Acts 2:38. Peter's boldness is again evident as he addresses the Jewish Sanhedrin. But it is by a filling of the Spirit that Peter speaks (4:8). Again, Peter speaks of the Spirit inspiring David (4:25). After Peter's speech, the people pray, are filled with the Spirit and become bold witnesses for God (4:31). Later in Acts, after the apostles are imprisoned, Peter tells the Council of the high priest and the Senate that the Spirit is a witness, as are the disciples, to the sacrifice and resurrection of Christ (5:30-32). Later, Peter also preaches that God anointed Jesus with the Spirit (10:38). The fifth chapter of Acts shows that people lied to the Spirit. A man named Ananias and his wife Sapphira lied about an offering they made. Peter told them that they lied not just to men, but to God and his Spirit (5:3-4,9). As the early church grew, the apostles became overburdened with their ministry. They decided that they should appoint men filled with the Spirit (6:3). Stephen met their requirements (6:5). Stephen began a powerful ministry (6:8-10). However false charges, much like those surreptitiously brought against Jesus, were made against Stephen. Stephen stood before the Council and preached that they were in error; always resisting the Spirit (7:51). Angered, the members of the Council rushed to kill him. Stephen, full of the Spirit, looked 125
up and saw the glory of God and Jesus (7:56). Stephen's brief ministry ended with the first martyrdom in the Christian church. Like Jesus in Luke 23:34, Stephen forgives his murderers (Barclay 1976, 62). Saul, later to become the Apostle Paul approved of Stephen's martyrdom (Acts 22:4, 20; 26:10). Acts 9:17 records Paul's conversion to Christianity by the power of the Holy Spirit. A murderer of Christians, Paul became one of the greatest Christians. Barnabas, a man full of the Spirit (11:24), is sent to Paul. In 13:2-4, teachers and prophets at Antioch are instructed by the Spirit to set Paul and Barnabas apart for a ministry ordained by the Spirit. Paul, filled with the Spirit (13:9), rebukes an evil sorcerer trying to interfere with Paul's preaching on Cyprus. Paul and Barnabas are persecuted and hence return to Iconium. The disciples were filled the Spirit and joy (13:44-52). The Spirit forbids Paul and Silas from preaching in Asia or Bithynia (16:6-7). The Spirit warned Paul that persecutions awaited him in every city (20:23). Undaunted, Paul reminded the Ephesian elders of their responsibility as overseers ordained by the Spirit (20:28). The disciples in Syria warned Paul by the Spirit not to go to Jerusalem (21:4). A prophet named Agabus confirmed that Paul would fall captive to unbelieving Gentiles at the hands of the Jews in Jerusalem (21:10-11). Earlier, the Spirit prompted Agabus to predict a worldwide famine (11:28) which occurred during the reign of the emperor Claudius. Upon arrival in Rome, Paul stated that the Spirit spoke through Isaiah concerning the unbelief of the people (28:25). Acts reveals the miracles performed by the Spirit filled apostles. A sorcerer named Simon was rebuked for trying to bribe the apostles for the gift of the Spirit (8:14-24). Verses 15-16 show that Samaria had received the Gospel but not the Spirit. Acts 19:1-7 describes the Apostle Paul's travel to Ephesus. At Ephesus Paul encounters about 12 believers who only knew of the baptism of John the Baptist. Paul taught them of Jesus and they received the Spirit. The Spirit speaks in 8:29, telling Philip to witness to an Ethiopian. After the Ethiopian's conversion, the Spirit miraculously transports Philip to another city (8:39). Verse 9:31 shows the Spirit comforting the ever-increasing church. The Greek word for the comfort of the Spirit is paraklesis, a variation of parakalein, which means to exhort or encourage (Barclay 1974, 217-18). The Spirit gave spiritual commands for the believers to follow in 15:28-29.
Peter received a vision teaching him to accept the Gentiles. The Spirit said three men had been sent, by the Spirit, to meet him (10:19-20). The passage in 10:44-48 describes the Spirit filled Gentiles. Peter reiterated these acts of the Spirit in 11:12-18 and in 15:8-11. Certainly, Luke-Acts have placed heavy emphasis on the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It is fair to say that the ministry of Christ and the church would have had far less impact on the world without the Spirit. Zechariah 4:6 says: ". . . not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts" (KJV). The Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts concur. Barclay emphasizes: "The early Church was a Spirit-guided community" (1976, 19). Without the Holy Spirit, Luke-Acts may not even have been written.â€?
_______________________________________________________________ Prayer Strategy for Leviathan, King Over Pride
on earth is like him, one made without fear. 34. He looks on everything that is high; he is king over all the sons of pride.â€? Job 41:33-34
Father, I stand in the gap and repent for my ancestors on both sides of my family back over three, four, and seven and ten generations and even back over forty and one hundred generations for our great pride and our pride in all its forms. Father I repent of all my stiff necked pride and stubbornness (Acts 7:51) with rebellion; I repent of all ambitious pride and the iniquity of a critical spirit with cutting words and actions and even wanting and seeking vengeance. I also repent where I cannot be told anything for I have thought that I knew it all and I repent of my haughtiness and loftiness. I ask where I am listening but never hearing to change my heart and open my ears to understand Your Word and Your ways for I repent for not being teachable and for being judgmental. I repent of my over exaggerated opinion of myself, my conceit, my haughty behavior, my arrogance and even where I am delighted in my own achievements and think very little of others or have no time for those who do not have my stature and brilliance. Father, I repent where I have become intolerant of others because they lack my understanding, intelligence and capabilities and even where I have isolated myself because people are just not what I want them to be and they are just not like me. I repent where I have wanted to change others and even taken their roles because they are not as perfect as me. I repent of the fruits of suspicion and mistrust and self deception and where I have become legalist reveal to me and bring to death this legalism. I even repent where I legally challenge people with scripture like being a lawyer knowingly and unknowingly. Father, I repent where rejection has caused me to become a perfectionist and where I have become puffed up with pride and rebellion. I repent of my
self righteousness and where I have rejected those in the church and not obeyed your command of love of the brethren and acceptance of the beloved and not walking in love. I repent also where I have justified my own rebellion and disobedience to Your Word and ways because of a stronghold of the transgression of pride. I repent also of my pride of prosperity, my furniture, my belongings, my car, my income, my business, my career and even my calling and position in the church. Also the pride of my heritage, my ancestry, my parentâ€™s lineage and achievements and even where they have instilled in me pride because of all this. Father, I repent of my hardness of heart and my stony heart because of all my pride. I repent where I have refused subjection and dependence upon you because of my rebellious pride. I repent where I have given honor and glory to myself instead of You because of my pride. I repent of all mockery and scorn and foolishness, my proud looks of contempt and haughtiness and proud heart. I repent of all disrespect, dishonor to parents and elders and disrespect for authority with arrogance and all lying. I repent of envy, shame, strife, blasphemy and arguing and self justification and self righteousness. I repent of all greed, gluttony, slothfulness, idleness and all sexual sins of lust and those committed in drunkenness. I repent where I have compromised Your Word with Your instructions in righteous living and for where I have compromised Your Word to follow after the lusts of the flesh and the ways of the world. Father I ask you to bring to death the sin structures of all my pride, stubbornness and rebellion and cause me to realize that I am to live a life of humility in agreement with You to live crucified in this area of my life. Enable me to realize that the old man has to die and that I am to live in newness of life as You continue to do a work within my heart so I do not continue to be ensnared by a stronghold of pride, rebellious pride and stubbornness. I repent and renounce all fascination with the forbidden and even the supernatural. I repent where I have unknowingly allowed this stronghold of pride to counterfeit my life and the works and manifestations of Your Holy Spirit. I ask for a loosing of my ears and eyes and tongue so I can hear and see and speak to move in Your Holy Spirit.
Father where I have opened myself up to false tongues because of pride and any other religious spirits or evil spirits from the laying on of hands because pride has not allowed me to hear or see or speak even to slumber, Father, I ask for deliverance of all these spirits that have entered into me. Father where I may have any of these specific spirits of pride: “Foot of Pride (Psalm 26:11); Rod of Pride (Proverbs 14:3); Crown of Pride (Isaiah 28:1, 3); Great Pride (Jeremiah 13:9); Pride of Life (1 John 2:16).” 1. [Worley: 1983:29] I claim the children’s bread of deliverance of demons. Father, anoint my prayer with power and authority to cast out Leviathan and his connected and related spirits: Father, “I do break the curse of Leviathan back to ten generations on both sides of the family, and destroy any legal rights or ground which give evil spirits reason to operate. I destroy all these in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” 2. [Worley 1996:4-5] Father I bind Leviathan and the seven heads being little pride, arrogant pride, spiritual pride, rationalization, justification, logic, pride in knowing and using these things and I also bind Neptune, Dagon and Poseidon all associated Egyptian spirits and spirits of the world and worldliness. Father, in the power and authority of the Name of The Lord Jesus Christ, I bind Orion the strong man and the seven bonds or stars of Orion (Job 38:31) being “Betelgeuse, Rigel, Bellatrix, Saiph, Mintaka, Alnilam and Alnitak.” 3. [Online, accessed 30 August 2009] Father, I bind and separate this cluster of stars the Pleaides. Father I also bind any and all connected and related spirits of prince charming, false gifts and revelation and tongues and Beelzebub in and over myself (or …………put name in here). Father, I command these evil spirits to manifest to leave and command they do not manifest other than to leave peaceably and quietly. Father I command Leviathan not to twist or wind or take control in any way of my (put name in here…..……) body or soul but to only manifest to leave. Father let a hook be put in Leviathans jaw (Job 41:1-2) and him drawn out and taken to his place appointed and all other spirits that have to leave in and over me. Father I verbally renounce all my pride and come out of agreement with this iniquity and where I am in a bond of pride thank you for bringing to death
the pride in my life so I can remain delivered from all associated and related spirits of pride. Father, all honor all glory and all power belongs to You, thank you for my deliverance of demons In Jesus Name, Amen.
[Prayer is based on finding of Win Worley in Booklet 19 Leviathan and Names of Other Spirits. 1983] “Then if any man shall say unto you Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24. For there shall arise false Christ’s, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” Matthew 24:23-24 KJ
NOTE: Blanket prayers do not fully free us from a stronghold; for example, a brief prayer or repentance to be set free from our transgressions of involvement with grounds for the occult and sexual lust, addiction and alcoholism will need to be specifically prayed through. As there are many different iniquities and transgression doorways that need to be specifically renounced, repented and sought out for healing is a process. Therefore, for a fuller deliverance this prayer needs to go hand in hand with other prayer strategies from the ministry; and other ministries globally that are called in setting the captive free. The truth is no ministry hold all the truth and nothing but the truth or all the keys, we are a body of believers the hand needs the eye and the eye needs the mouth and so on. We need to keep praying for exposure of the demonic that brings us into the false and or stops us from being able to see the false and counterfeit. The prayer strategy in “The Abomination of Occult Practices with Prayer Strategy” will uproot the demonic in our lives for the occult is an open door to Divination spirits that counterfeits the work of The Holy Spirit. Also Beelzebub and Orion and Pride and various other spirits work in this area over and under and alongside Divination. Also Necromancy won’t go unless you believe the talking to the dead in heaven and or with visits to heaven talking to the deceased is not scriptural. Therefore, you may have renounced your 131
transgressions and acknowledged ancestral transgressions, but necromancy will stay until you get all its grounds. It is important that you utilize other ministries in your nation or in other nations that have knowledge or more concentrated knowledge of the demonic that has come with your own transgressions or down the generations. As what is from your own life or the counterfeit will not be fully be uprooted; because what spirits are remaining will block, hinder and lie and deceive to stop you seeing more truth and seeing more deliverance as they will blind you to the false and the counterfeit in ministries and in churches or in peopleâ€™s lives. www.fruitfulvine.com is an excellent link, somewhat legalistic I think but knowledge, teaching and training is abundant. Also you will find if you search internet sites for deliverance prayers and strategies and teachings you will find ample sites for taking the land that may have to be taken little by little. Now is the time to take the gates of your enemy not when there is a â€œcertain time in your life.â€? If you think you only need deliverance in a time of demonic affliction or in some crisis in your life or if He tells you, these things will stay hidden and under covered happy to playing church. Make room make way for the King of Glory to go in and deliver you from by making the first move to seek and search for your inheritance and freedom for more fullness.
Prayer Strategy The Curse Of The Vagabond
There is a Biblical curse of the vagabond that causes us to move from church to church, house to house, city to city and even job to job position to position. "And now thou art cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand; It shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and vagabond shalt tho be in the earth" Genesis 4:11-12 KJ This same curse brings with it poverty. Cain became a vagabond as the result of this curse from God for murdering his brother Abel. A curse is God's recompense or payment for transgression. "The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked..." Proverbs 3:33 "Thou shewest loving-kindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the mighty God, the Lord of hosts, is his name." Jeremiah 32:18 KJ Another curse of the vagabond is for the sin of returning evil for good. If someone has been good to you and you have rendered them evil for their good than this curse of wandering will be your recompense or repayment. "And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love. Set thou a wicked man over him and let Satan stand at his right hand. Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow. Let his children be vagabonds continually and beg; Let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places." Psalm 109:5-6, 9-10 Again there is poverty with begging sorrow and grief. Poverty has many roots, many roots yes many roots. If you have had general prayer to release you from the curse of poverty you will not have got every curse to uproot the strongman out and or demolish the whole house of poverty. This anti-christ strongman mocks and laughs at the churches ignorance in this area. He knows he can stay securely nested when ministers pray general prayers to break the 133
curse of poverty because their legal grounds consist of more than one specific curse and or are attached to another transgression. Therefore his nest needs to be uprooted root by root, curse by curse spirit by spirit - incest (Genesis 49:4; Leviticus 20:11-12, 20-21) vagabond and murder (Genesis 4:11, Psalm 109:9-10) laziness (Proverbs 6:11, 20:13) resisting and refusing correction (Proverbs 13:18), alcoholic spending (Proverbs 23:21) not tithing to our Great High Priest (Malachi 3:9-10) and various other financial transgressions are just a few transgressions that house poverty. Freemasonry does a ritual of the poor box where a spirit of poverty is invoked, in addition when candidates breach their oaths there are several curses against the finances of that candidate and their generation and those to come. www.fruitfulvine.org has a book called Freemasonry Death In The Family that uproots freemasonry curses down the generations with a fine tooth comb and gives lots of knowledge. (See Melchizedek Prayer Strategy on page 141 for prayer as we do not have to find with a fine tooth comb every ancestral sin because this kingdom reign of living in the promise of Ezekiel 18.) As with all curses redemption from curses of vagabond and curses of poverty has to be appropriated by the prayer of accountability of self and the standing in the gap for the ancestors on both sides of the family, then this makes way for the blessings of Abraham and to follow prosperity and habitation. Therefore, if you come before The Father to repent for the ancestors on both sides of the family back over forty generations you will have curses broken. In simplicity "Father I stand in the gap for the transgressions of my ancestors on both sides of the family back over forty generations even back to Adam and Eve and I repent and I renounce for murder of our own blood line, the murder of a brother according to Genesis 4:11-12; for returning evil for good let every curse attached to Psalm 109:5-6, 9-10 of having a wicked man over us of Satan standing at our right hand of our children being fatherless and a wife to become a widow. Of the children being vagabonds continually and begging and Father let every Gyspy curse and hex and spell be broken; Also release us that our bread does not come out of desolate places and I ask You to lift all judgment of curses that came because of these transgressions and I ask that You deliver me from the judgments and spirits associated and attached to these and any soul ties with curses, ThankYou Father In Jesus Name Amen. Now you do the Freemasonry ritual poor box and to make 134
mention here The Catholic and Roman Catholic Nuns and Priests commit to a life time of poverty. As a word of knowledge soul ties to worldly music and the musicians like the Rolling Stones, Vagabond, Wanders need to be broken if you have aligned your heart in agreement because of your vagabond life. Repentance for the music and the soul attachment needs to be done first before the spirits attached to the soul ties and the other spirits attached will loose to leave. "Father I repent, I renounce of the music of these particular albums to the spirit of this world of ............... and I choose to remove them if necessary from my home; I ask that You deliver me from the spirits associated and attached to these soul ties and curses from the music and albums, Thank You Father In Jesus Name Amen. On the ministry site in the prayer strategy and books page there is a book The Abomination Of Occult Practices that I have written and I explain how come Christians can be cursed and why they still go from generation to generation (Deuteronomy 23:29) under Blood Covenant (Ezekiel 18:20). If you do not know the doctrine of can and do Christians have demons, this book will prove without a doubt curses and spirits are operative under Blood Covenant (2 Peter 2:14) and the truth is they exist whether we believe it or not. Demonic doorways bring cycles, emotional cycles, subconscious cycles, flight cycles, resistance cycles, rebellious cycles, performance and works cycles, approval cycles and or acceptance of the status quo cycles and on I could go. When works of darkness are against us and legal rights are operative it hinders and prolongs our healing, restoration and total deliverance in not only restoration of our sexuality but in other area as I mentioned above hence we do not and cannot walk in the fullness of the blessing He has for us. So bless yourself and make a rich investment for your soul and follow through for your break through and prove these things so these things do not keep on perpetuating in your life.
_______________________________________________________________ Prayer Strategy for Counterfeit and False
Father I repent where I have been running after signs and the things of the world than You with all my heart. I repent where I have drawn near to You with my mouth but my heart is far from You. Where I am rebellious and will not hear the law of God and where I refuse to hear and refuse to obey You will and Your ways in Your Word. Father, where I want to hear the prophets and people I want to hear I repent for not having my life centered on You. Father I repent for not judging the doctrines behind what is being taught and preached and manifestation in the churches today. I repent for not distinguishing the operations of deceiving spirits but receiving them as genuine works of Your Holy Spirit. I repent where I have believed every spirit and departed to follow after seducing spirits under the guise of righteousness. Where I have made falsehood my refuge and under deception concealed myself I repent (Isaiah 28:15) and where I have been living in dead works I renounce and repent. Father, I ask that You change my heart to grow up and bring to death all that hinders me from becoming mature in the lifestyle of Christ Jesus. Father where I have envied others and those in ministry positions and where I have been driven by shame to envy, deceive and be false I repent. Where I have ruled over others in ungodly ways I repent. Father I repent of the transgressions of my ancestors on both sides of the family that have opened doors to false religions, false and counterfeit religion and false and counterfeit manifestations of Your Spirit. I ask for grace until I can totally uproot and close all doors in the areas of my life and my household where I or we have Freemasonry and Divination spirits hidden and operative from either ancestral or our own transgressions. Father I repent and renounce all counterfeit Jesusâ€™ from Islamic Beliefs Buddhism Hinduism and all other counterfeit Christâ€™s known and unknown that myself and my ancestors have bowed down to in Christianity.
I specifically repent of all denominational pride and all drunkenness of my past and I acknowledge those of my ancestors of both fermented strong drink and wine and the false wines of the spiritual realms. I repent of all my spiritual adultery and harlotry and all lying, falsehood and compromise and filthiness and uncleanness. Father where I have become ensnared by Orion give me eyes to see and ears to hear. Where this spirit hinders, blocks and sets limits in my life or ministry I declare thus far and no further and every ground that it and it powers and spirits have is being uprooted and dismantled. Father where I have been ensnared by this spirit to compromise that I may get fame, prosperity, glory and sex I repent. I repent where I have been theologically and logically and semantically correct in my attitudes and where I have yielded to peer pressure to please others than exalting Your Word above my circumstances. I repent where I have been deceived by confining my ministry to a specific area or only certain people forgive me and dismantle these grounds where they are under deception. Where I have unknowingly allowed this spirit to cause me to abandon the ministry of deliverance I repent and ask for forgiveness and restoration. Father I ask for the strength and anointing(s) to overcome this spirit and all who he has enlisted to ensnare me to do his will. Father where I have received finances from this assignment to make me think the blessing is from You and I am on the right track I repent. Father I repent where I have thought more highly of myself than I ought and where I have had the brotherhood mindset that men have dominion in all the things of The Lord (1 Corinthians 11:11) I repent where I have not tested all things with scripture and have gone in the direction of signs and wonders and provision. For example, Father where I have believed I could go and meditate on Your Word so You would take me into the third heaven to be with Jesus Christ to be taught of Him to receive a download and to be taught of Him in different rooms because Paul The Apostle went there. Father, I repent for Paul was stoned dead when he went there, I failed to study The Word thoroughly and the Roman way of stoning and to marry up the truth that Paul was stoned dead. Therefore, I was deceived as I believed I could go to the third heaven because Paul did, but Paul was dead and Iâ€™m not dead 137
deliver me from the evil that I have opened myself up to because of this great deception. Father teach me the doctrine on the manifested sons and the teaching on taking the DNA of Jesus Christ, Father You prepared Jesus a body unlike ours His blood was holy not like ours therefore we can never being corrupt mortal people take the DNA of Jesus Christ the only sinless Son of God the only sinless manifested Son of God. Where I have come under deception and the counterfeit and the false here bind every spirit associated here that I may be lead to the truth of these doctrines, release my mind my understanding and will to know and search for the truth. Father where I have been placed in a position by the deception of Orion so he can work his works I ask for eye salve and anointing on my ears to hear so I may receive revelation; and I ask that I would not ever take any position where Orion is at work to place me in ministry or in my ministry. Father where I have soul ties with a doctrine, a denomination, a prophetic word or words, a teaching, a lie, a church, a minister, a Pastor or Prophet or Teacher I ask that You break these and let them be broken now in Jesus Name. Where I cannot see them reveal them to me. Where my pride has caused this spirit to take grounds in my soul I repent and ask that You bring to death the grounds that keep them housed or able to re-enter. [Prayer for Orion is based on finding of Win Worley â€œOrion, the Destroyer of Ministryâ€? in Booklet 19 Leviathan and Names of Other Spirits. 1. [Worley 1983:33-36] â€œFather, all other works of divination like counterfeit Christian doctrines teachings and prophecies (Jeremiah 14:14); I ask that You expose these in my life and bring the revelation and light that I need to be able to see this in my life, and their false religion and their beliefs, Philosophers and Psychologists like Jung and Freud and others, birthday readings, oracles, omens, tarot, wisdom cards, playing cards, love cards and angel readings; dream interpretation, witchcraft, spells, spiritists, gaining secret or hidden information, fengshui, color interpretation, telekinesis, fold tradition, by faith. Father also the different nations occult practices throughout the world that my ancestors on both sides of the family or myself have unknowingly practiced; reading the twitching of the eyelids, necromancy sacrifice to idols, fortune telling, astrology, geomancy or the poking of holes in a box of earth 138
and combining the result into a set of symbols, palmistry, runes, I Ching and” 2. [Malligan, 2009:100] Awaking the Kundalini, Yoga and associated practices and exercises, “astral projective investigation and any other works of divination not mentioned on this occult list that I may have practiced or my ancestors on both sides of the family back over three, four generations, seven generations, ten generations and forty generations and Father I ask even way back to the beginning of my ancestry lines if necessary.” 3. & 4. [Malligan, 2009:100] Father I repent and renounce all Divination practices that have ever been listed and known throughout the generations. Father I make a declaration to these spirits of Divination, Python Divination and to Kundalini and other connected and related spirits to these practices. “I address you particular spirits of the kingdom of darkness from my position in the third heavens and from the foundation of blood covenant with The Lord Jesus Christ. I renounce you, denounce you, resist you and refuse your presence and powers any longer in and over my life. I fall out of agreement with you and your ways and practices and your kingdom as I declare you are my enemy. I declare a severing of all ties and connections to your presence and powers; therefore, I loose myself from your evil influences and presence and command you to loose and leave without making any manifestations other than to leave quietly and peaceably. "Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches." Revelation 3:17-22 KJ
[For a more informative list of these practices they are written under D – “Divination and following practices” A to Z in “The Abominations of Occult Practices” that can be obtained from Triumphant Ministries. Or a list can be accessed on line for A to Z specific renunciation and providing knowledge of any practice you may be doing unknowing believing it to be safe and or acceptable in the sight of Yahweh from www.wikipedia.org/wikiMethods_of_divination or any other site under Divination that has a compressive list of Divination practices.] "But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth:” John 4:23 KJ
_______________________________________________________ Melchizedek Priesthood Prayer Strategy “Renunciation of Darkness “Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, rebuke and expose them.” Ephesians 5:11 NLT “For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:14 NIV
Father, I humble myself before You and submit to You according to Your Word, “submit to God resist the Devil and he will flee” before praying and working through this Cleansing Work Book. Thank You and I agree there is no power other than the Power of Your Finished Works of Calvary The Blood of Jesus Christ and The Indwelling Power of The Spirit of Christ Jesus that can deliver me, heal me and cast out spirits of darkness and release me from judgments. Father according to Your statute and You have written this statute more than thirty times to confess the forefathers transgressions and iniquity. I obey, and I agree that my ancestors on both sides of my family line have transgressed your laws Your Ordinances Your statutes and commandments. According to Your statute, I am to take accountability for my forefather’s sins and iniquity back over three four ten and I want to pray for a thousand generations for where they have transgressed and been iniquitous. Therefore, I agree and I acknowledge this before You and I repent for their guilt, their betrayal, their unfaithfulness, their adultery, their idolatry, their robbery, their extortion, their visiting the shrines of darkness, their oppression of others, their breaking covenant and they did not feed the poor or not clothe the naked. Father I repent for every law, statute and ordinance they broke and for all other unknown iniquity and transgression I ask forgiveness and I claim the promise of Your Word that I would now not share the guilt of my ancestors. Father since I have chosen to do what is just and right according to Ezekiel 18 and I have chosen to keep Your decrees Your Statutes Your commandments and because I chose to leave the life of my forefathers sins and iniquity to serve You to keep Your commandments decrees and statutes I can receive the children’s bread of freedom from the ancestors judgments and curses, So Father in Jesus Name, let every curse every
judgment be broken and let me be set free from these ancestral iniquities and transgressions. Father, before You and them I disown and renounce my ancestors transgressions their corrupted bloodlines, their pneuma-genetics, their curses their judgments and declare I am now a citizen of Heaven, I am not of this world I am a sojourner my home and my Kingdom is my Beloveds The Lord Jesus Christ, The King of Kings and Lord of Lords and I am becoming the king and the priest You have called me to become. I renounce the sins and iniquity of my bloodlines my ancestors on both sides of the family so they can no longer have authority in and over my life for I am in Covenant with Him, and I choose to keep Covenant and remain in Covenant. Father I now address these spirits: spirits I have acknowledged that many generations have transgressed and committed iniquity so today all you ancestral spirits, yes all of you ancestral spirits are moving out. I have turned from my ancestorâ€™s iniquity and their transgressions for I choose and have chosen righteous living in His Kingdom for I am delivered from the kingdom of darkness into The Kingdom of Light. Therefore you spirits from curses, from iniquity from sins of the generations back over a thousand generations on both sides of the family, I declare against you I am faithful, that I am baptized into His death, I am one with Him, washed in His Blood, bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh, He is the Father of my spirit, I am adopted into His family, I have an inheritance and I am a fellow heir and I am righteous and betrothed so I am His wife and now delivered from the iniquity the sins and curses of the ancestors. I declare I choose to remain a faithful wife, and I choose Him and His Covenant and I choose to become all that He has for me, I choose the priesthood of Melchizedek, I resist you, I renounce you and I refuse your will in my life. Ancestral spirits all of you familiar spirit you curse spirits from the ancestors on both sides of the family Jesus has delivered me from the curse and you spirits are now squatters you now no longer have rights to remain because of ancestral sin and iniquity or because of oaths for what He and His Blood has done for me you lose your grounds. You must now loose and leave this very moment, and you will be plucked out of your dwelling places and taken to the place appointed of you â€œfor now is the judgment of this world now shall the prince of this world be cast out.â€? Therefore every one of you spirits you will loose and leave for you can no longer remain, you no longer have any legal grounds to stay for all that I am in Him supersedes your legal grounds your oaths your curses your rights have been stripped from you no matter what degree my ancestors have gone to in Freemasonry you have lost your grounds
to remain. I declare the blood on your doors on your gates on your oaths, and I declare them open for you to leave. His blood line against the blood line of my ancestors, so I say now those doors are sealed and closed because of His Blood Covenant with me; I am my Beloveds and my Beloved is mine you will loose and leave for I cast you out, and Father let it be so in Jesus Name. Father I now want to address those in and over me because of my iniquity and my transgression, so I submit to You. I address all you spirits from the kingdom of darkness in and over my life from my iniquity and transgressions for I renounce you and refuse your will for my life any longer. I no longer want to be in agreement with your ways or your perverse ways. I denounce you and your ways, and I hate you and declare you are my enemy, and I come into agreement with Jesus Christ, my deliverer that you will leave His Temple, my body this hour. Today is the day you are going to loose and leave me. I come out of agreement and fellowship with you and resist all of you; you will leave me and I declare and agree you will be taken to the place The Lord Jesus Christ has appointed for you along with the ancestral spirits from both sides of my family lines. I surrender all the areaâ€™s I have given over to you to The Lord Jesus Christ for I declare my salvation is by grace through faith and faith of the finished work of Calvary and His shed blood for the remission of sins. I reclaim where I have given ground to you in my body, soul and spirit because of deception, lies and my iniquities my sins and sexual transgressions and those that fortify your strongholds of perversion, of bisexuality, homosexuality and transgender. I resist you, renounce you and refuse your presence any longer in my life. The Lord Jesus Christ rebuke you and take you all to the place He has appointed of you as you have lost your grounds in and over my life for I confess and repent and renounce before my Father so you will lose your grounds. Father let this be so in Jesus Name, for I call upon the power of the Blood Covenant for deliverance, healing, and restoration and I invite you into every area that has been occupied by unclean spirits from the kingdom of darkness and from Your judgments. Father I now take accountability for my life and all the sin and iniquity that I have in my life and my life alone. I declare I shall overcome I shall come up higher I shall be purified and refined to be the king and priest you have called me to be in the Melchizedek Order, I declare I am being born again from above.
“Father, have mercy upon me, according to Your loving-kindness; according to the multitude of Your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity and cleanse me from my sin, for I acknowledge my transgressions and my sins are ever before me. Against You and You only have I sinned and done evil in Your sight that You are justified when You judge me.” (Psalm 51:1-4) Thank You all Power all Glory belongs to You, In Jesus Christ Mighty Name, Amen.”1.

Old Testament Scriptures
“And God blessed them; and God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the sea, and over birds of the heavens, and over all living things creeping on the earth.” Genesis 1:28 “And the man said, This now at last is bone of my bones, and flesh from my flesh. For this shall be called Woman, because this has been taken out of man.” Genesis 2:23 “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed-He will bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.” Genesis 3:15 “And in your Seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed as reward in that you have obeyed My voice.” Genesis 22:18
“And Moses was feeding the flock of his father-in-law Jethro, the priest of Midian. And he led the flock behind the wilderness and came to the mountain of God, to Horeb. 2. And the Angel of Jehovah appeared to him in a flame of fire from the middle of a thorn bush. And he looked, and behold, the thorn bush was burning with fire, and the thorn bush was not burned up! 3. And Moses said, I will turn aside now and see this great sight, why the thorn bush is not burned up. 4. And Jehovah saw that he turned aside to see, and God called to him from the midst of the thorn bush, and said, Moses! Moses! And he said, I am here. 5. And He said, Do not come near here, pull off your sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” Exodus 3:1-5 “And Aaron spoke all the words which Jehovah had spoken to Moses.

And the people gathered to Aaron. And they said to him, Rise up, make for us gods who may go before our face. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up from the land of Egypt; we do not know what has become of him. 2. and Aaron said to them, Tear off the rings of gold which are in the ears of your wives, your sons and your daughters; and bring them to me. 3. And all the people tore off the rings of gold which were in their ears, and they brought to Aaron. 4. And he took from their hand and formed it with an engraving tool. And he made it a casted calf. And they said, These are your gods, O Israel, who made you go up from the land of Egypt. 5. And Aaron saw, and he built an altar before it. And Aaron called and said, A feast to Jehovah tomorrow. 7. And Jehovah spoke to Moses, Come, go down, for your people whom you caused to go up from Egypt are corrupted; 8. they have quickly turned off from the way which I commanded them; they have made for themselves a casted calf and have bowed to it, and have sacrificed to it. And they have said, These are your gods, O Israel, who made you go up from the land of Egypt.” Exodus 32:1-4, 7-8 “And he took the calf which they had made and burned it with fire, and he ground it until it was fine, then he scattered it on the face of the water.

For He delivers you from the fowler’s trap, from destruction’s plague. 4. With His feathers He will cover you, and under His wings you shall seek refuge; His truth is a shield and buckler. 5. You shall not fear the terror of night, of the arrow that flies by day; 6. of the plague that walks in darkness; of the destruction laying waste at noonday. 7. A thousand shall fall by your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; it shall not come near your. 8. Only with your eyes you shall look, and see the reward of the wicked. 9. Because You, O Jehovah, are my refuge; you make the Most High your habitation. 10. No evil shall happen to You, nor shall any plague come near Your tent. 11. For He shall give angels charge over You, to keep you in all Your ways.” 12. They shall bear You up in their palms, that You not dash Your foot on a stone. 13. You shall tread on the lion and adder; the young lion and the serpent You shall trample under foot. 14. Because he has set his love on Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. 15. He shall call on Me and I will answer him; I will be with him in distress; I will rescue him and honor him. 16. I will satisfy him with length of days and will make him see My salvation.” Psalm 91:1-16 (In Judaic understanding and or Hebraic understanding as written in Bridges for Peace Israel Teaching Letter, Vol. # 770104, that the verses in Psalm 91:5-6 were the names and functions of demons that Jews knew and understand by their names; Pahad, Hez, Dever, Ketev and Resheph: 1. [Wagner, 2004:6] Pahad is the demon of terror by night (In our English understanding they are spirits who function in panic, terror all types of fears.) Win Worley writes that “fear spirits are scorpion spirits that nest in the abdomen and are organized in and over someone or regions in squads with officers up to generals and princes, all under the ruling Prince Apollyon - Revelation 9:11” 2. [Worley, 1983:11] Hez is the demon who attacks with spiritual fiery darts of a bow (In our English spirits that bring works against the mind and emotions)
Dever is the demon of pestilence (In our understanding spirits that bring all types of infirmity and sickness) Ketev is a demon who strikes one down with an overpowering noonday heat (In our understanding spirits that bring fever) Resheph is the demon of plague (In our understanding spirits that bring diseases) Recall, we read this Psalm and understand it is a prayer of protection against demonic activity. Therefore consider: “Thou shall not be afraid for the terror by night; (Pahad), Nor for the arrow that flieth by day; (Hez) Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; (Dever) Nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday” (Ketev) There shall no evil befall thee, Neither shall any plague (Resheph) come nigh they dwelling.” Psalm 91:5-6 In verse 7, it is written of the demons being of great numbers; this also speaks, there are billions of demon spirits. “A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.”
Cancer is a plague, cancer can and does have its roots in sexual transgressions. “The demon Termination is the ruler of disease in charge of terminal diseases. Optias another demon who puts cancer cells, parasites and other organisms into human anatomy. Nimo is a controller who deceives and works with Cancer as does Fungus and Self Destruction. Cerulias is also a ruler under him is Monroe. Yondacola is the demon to leukemia. Verico is responsible for mushroom growth type breast cancer. Taile is the demon to do with cancer of the lymph glands of the breast. Blargy is the demon behind colon cancer and infection of colon or colitis and diverticulitis. Tatile is the demon behind breast cancer. Bozo is the demon behind stomach cancer, stomach infection and ulcers.” 3. [Worley, 1983:6]
“The earth is Jehovah’s and the fullness of it; the world, and those who live in it.” Psalm 24:1 “Those who live in the darkness, and in the shadow of death, being prisioners in affliction and iron-11. because they rebelled against the words of God, and despised the counsel of the Most High;-12. and He humbled their heart by toil; they stumbled, and none were helping; 13. and they cried to Jehovah in their distress; He saved them out of their distresses,. 14. He brought them out from darkness and the shadow of death; and He broke their bands apart. 15. Let them thank Jehovah for His mercy, and His wonders to the sons of man. 16. For He has broken the gates of bronze; and He cut bars of iron in two. 17. Fools are afflicted from the way of their rebellion, and from their iniquities; 18. their sould hates every food and they touch the gates of death; 19. and they cried to Jehovah in their distress; He saved them from their straits; 20. He sent His word and healed them; and delivered them from all their pitfalls.” Psalm 107:10-22 “The cords of death hemmed me in; and the pains of Sheol found me; I find distress and sorrow;” Psalm 116:3

And I will wait on Jehovah, who hides His face from the house of Jacob; and I will look for Him. 18. Behold, I and the children whom Jehovah has given to me are for signs and wonders in Israel from Jehovah of hosts, who swells in Mount Zion.” Isaiah 8:14-18 “They that see you shall stare and closely watch you, saying, is this the man who made the earth tremble, shaking kingdoms.” Isaiah 14:16 “Now I will rise up, says Jehovah. Now I will be exalted; now I will be lifted up. 11. You shall conceive chaff; you shall bear stubble; your fiery breath shall devour you. 12. And peoples shall be as burnings of lime; as thorns cut away, they shall be burned in fire. 13. Distant ones, hear what I have done; and you near ones, know My might. 14. The sinners of Zion are afraid; terror has 158
seized profane ones; who of us shall tarry with consuming fire? Who of us shall tarry with everlasting burnings?” Isaiah 33:10-14 “Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf opened. 6. Then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the dumb shall sing. For waters shall break out in the wilderness, and streams in the desert.” Isaiah 35:5-6 “to open blind eyes, to deliver the prisoner from the prison; those who sit in darkness from the prison.” Isaiah 42:7 “Surely He has borne our sicknesses and our pains; He bore them, yet we regarded Him as plagued, stricken by God and afflicted.” Isaiah 53:4 “yea, dogs greedy of soul; they do not know satisfaction. And they are shepherds; they know not discernment; they all look to their own way, each one for his own gain, from his own end, saying:” Isaiah 56:11 And My hand has made a l these things, even all these things exist, declares Jehovah. But I will look toward this one, to the afflicted, and the contrite of spirit, even trembling at My word.” Isaiah 66:2

And if you take the precious from the worthless, you shall be as My mouth. Let them turn back to you, but do not return to them.” Jeremiah 15:19
“I was looking in the night visions. And, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of the heavens. And He came to the Ancient of Days. And they brought Him near before Him. 14. And dominion was given to Him, and glory, and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which shall not pass away, and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.” Daniel 7:13-14
“Seventy weeks are decreed as to you people, and as to your holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins and to make atonement for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy. 25. Know, then , and understand that from the going out of a word to restore and to rebuild Jerusalem, to Messiah the Prince, shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks. The street shall be built again, and the wall , even in times of affliction. 26. And after sixty-two weeks, Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself. And the people of a coming prince shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.

And no one makes himself strong with Me in these things, except Michael your ruler.” Daniel 10:21 “And it shall be afterward, I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh.

But to you who fear My name, the Sun of righteousness shall rise up, and healing will be on His wings. And you shall go out and frisk like calves of the stall.” Malachi 4:1-2

“But seeing many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, Offspring of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?” Matthew 3:7 “But already the axe is even laid at the root of the trees; therefore, any tree not producing good fruit is cut down, and is thrown into fire.” Matthew 3:10 “I indeed baptize you in water to repentance; but He who is coming after me is stronger than I, whose sandals I am not fit to carry. He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit and fire;” Matthew 3:11 “Then the Devil takes Him to the holy city and he set Him on the wing of the temple. 6. And he said to Him, If Your are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it has been written: “He shall give His angels charge concerning You, and they shall bear You on their hands, lest You strike Your foot against a stone.” 7. Jesus said to him, Again it has been written; “You shall not tempt the Lord your God.” 8. Again the Devil takes Him to a very high mountain, and he showed to Him all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory. 9. And he said to Him, I will give all these things to You if falling down You will worship me. 10. Then Jesus said to him, Go, Satan! For it has been written: “You shall worship the Lord your God, and you shall serve Him only.” Matthew 4:5-10 “For narrow is the gate, and constricted is the way that leads into life, and few are the ones who find it.” Matthew 7:14 “But beware of the false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inside they are plundering wolves. 16. From their fruits you shall know them. Do they gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles? 17. So every good tree produces good fruits; but the corrupt tree produces evil fruits. 18. A good tree cannot produce evil fruits, nor a corrupt tree produce good fruits. 19. Every tree not producing good fruit is cut out and is thrown into fire. 20. Then surely from their fruits you shall know them.” Matthew 7:15-20
“Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter into the kingdom of Heaven, but the ones who do the will of My Father in Heaven. 22. Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name do many works of power? 23. And then I will declare to them, I never knew you depart from Me, those working lawlessness!” Matthew 7:21-23 “Jesus sent these twelve out, charging them, saying; Do not go into the way of the nations, and do not go into a city of the Samaritans; 6. but rather go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7. And going on, proclaim, saying, The kingdom of Heaven has drawn near. 8. Heal sick ones, cleanse lepers, raise dead ones, cast out demons, You have freely received, freely give. 9. do not provide gold, nor silver, nor copper in your belt; 10. nor provision-bag for the road, nor two tunics, nor sandals, nor staves. For the worker Is worthy of his food. 11. And into whatever city or village you enter, ask who in it is worthy; and remain there until you go out. 12. But entering into the house, greet it; 13. and if the house truly is worthy, let your peace return to you. 14. And whoever will not receive you, nor will hear your words, having gone out of that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. 15. Truly I say to you, it will be more bearable to the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in Judgment Day than for that city.” Matthew 10:5-15 “But Jesus knowing their thoughts, He said to them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to n ruin. And every city or house divided against itself will not stand. 26. And if Satan throws out Satan, he was divided against himself, How then will his kingdom stand?” Matthew 12:25-26 “Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, Teacher, we desire to see a sign from you. 39. But answering He said to them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks a sign, and a sign shall not be given to it, except the sign of Jonah the prophet.” Matthew 12:38-39 “But in the fourth watch of the night, Jesus went out to them, walking on the sea. 26. And seeing Him walking on the sea, the disciples were troubled, saying, It is a ghost! And they cried out from the fear. 27. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, Be comforted! I AM! Do not fear. 28. And answering Him, Peter said, Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the waters.” Matthew 14:25-28 “This people draws near to Me with their mouth, and with their lips honor Me; but their heart is far from Me.” Matthew 15:8
“An evil and adulterous generation seeks a sign, and a sign will not be given to it, except the sign of Johan the prophet. And leaving them, He went away.” Matthew 16:4 “Then Jesus said to His disciples, If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and let him bear his cross, and let him follow Me. 25. For whoever may desire to save his soul will lose it, But whoever may loose his soul for My sake will find it. 26. For what will a man be benefited if he should gain n the whole world, but forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give as an exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:24-26 “For the Son of man is about to come in the glory of His Father, with His angels. And then He will give reward to each according to his works. 28. Truly I say to you, Three are some standing here who in no way will taste of death until they see the Son of man coming in His kingdom.” Matthew 16:27-28 “But that we nay not offend them, going to the sea, throw in a hook, and take the first fish coming up. And opening its mouth, you will find a stater coin. Taking that, given to them for you and Me.” Matthew 17:27 “even as the Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28 “Serpents, offspring of vipers! How shall you escape the judgment of Hell?” Matthew 23:33 “For many will come in my Name, saying, I am the Christ. And they will cause many to err. 6. But you are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See, do not be disturbed. For all things must take place, but the end is not yet.” Matthew 24:5-6 “For Nation will be raised against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there will be famines and plagues and earthquakes against many places. 8. But all these are a beginning of throes. 9. then they will deliver you up to affliction, and will kill you; and you will be hated by all notions for My name’s sake. 10. And then many will be offended, and they will deliver up one another, and will hate one another. 11. And many false prophets will be raised, and will cause many to err. 12. And because lawlessness shall have been multiplied, the love of many will grow cold. 13. But the one who endures to the end, that one will be saved. 14. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the earth, for a testimony to all the nations; and then will come the end.” Matthew 24:7-14 163
“For false Christ’s and false prophets will rise up. And they will give great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.” Matthew 24:24 “Then the kingdom of Heaven shall be compared to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to a meeting of the bridegroom-“ Matthew 25:1 “But when the Son of man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32. And before Him shall be gathered all the nations, and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33. And indeed He will set the sheep off His right, but the goats off the left hand. 34. Then the King will say to those on His right, Come, the blessed of My Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35. For I hungered, and you gave Me food to eat; I thirsted, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you took Me in; 36. naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me. 37. Then the righteous will answer, saying, Lord, when did we see You hungry, and fed You; or thirsting, and gave You drink? 38. And when did we see You a stranger, and took You in; or naked, and clothed You; 39. And when did we see You sick, or in prison, and came to You? 40. And answering, the King will say to them, Truly I say to you, Inasmuch as you did it to one of these, the least of My brothers, you did it to Me. 41. Then He will also say to those on His left, Go away from Me, cursed ones, into the everlasting fire having been prepared for the Devil and his angels. 42. For I hungered, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I thirsted, and you gave me nothing to drink; 43. I was a stranger, and you did not take Me in, naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and imprison, and you did not visit Me. 44. Then they also will answer Him, saying. Lord, when did we see You hungering, or thirsting or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to You? 45. Then He will answer them, saying. Truly I say to you, Inasmuch as you did not do it to one of these, the least, neither did you do it to Me. 46. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into everlasting life.” Matthew 25:31-46 “But those passing by blasphemed Him, shaking their heads, 40. and saying, You destroying the temple, and building it in three days, if you are the ?Son of God, come down from the cross. 41. And in the same way the chief priests with the scribes and elders, mocking said, 42. He saved others; he is not able to save himself. If he is the king of Israel, let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe him. 43. He trusted on God. Let Him rescue him now, if He desires him. For he said, I am Son of God.” Matthew 27:39-43
“And from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. 46. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani-that is, My God, My God, why did You forsake Me? 47. And hearing, some of those standing there said, This one calls Elijah. 48. And at once one of them running and taking a sponge, and filling it with vinegar, put it on a reed and gave drink to Him. 49. But the rest said, Let be; let us see if Elijah comes to save him. 50. And crying again with a loud voice, Jesus released His spirit. 51. And, behold, the veil of the temple was torn into two from top to bottom. And the earth quaked, and the rocks were sheared! 52. And the tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. 53. And coming forth out of the tombs after His resurrection, they entered into the holy city and were revealed to many. 54. But the centurion and those guarding Jesus with him, seeding the earthquake and the things taking place they feared exceedingly, saying, Truly this One was Son of God. 55. And many women were there, watching from afar off, those who followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to Him; 56. among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee. 57. And evening having come, a rich man from Arimathea, Joseph by name, who also himself was discipled to Jesus; 58. coming up to Pilate, this one asked the body of Jesus, Then Pilate commanded the body to be given. 59. And taking the body, Joseph wrapped it in clean lined, 60. and lain it in his new tomb, which he had cut out in the rock. And rolling a great stone to the door of the tomb, he departed. 61. And there was Mary Magdalene and the other Mary sitting across from the grave.” Matthew 27: 45-61 “And coming up Jesus talked with them, saying, All authority in Heaven and on earth was given to Me.” Matthew 28:18 “And knowing instantly whining Himself the power had gone forth out of Him, turning in the crowd, Jesus said, Who touched My garments? Mark 5:30 “And signs will follow to those believing these things they will cast out demons In My name; they will speak new languages;” Mark 16:17 “And as He quit speaking, He said to Simon, Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a haul. 5. And answering Simon said to Him, Master, laboring all through the night we took nothing. But at Your word I will let down the net. 6. And doing this, they netted a great multitude of fish; and their net was being torn. 7. And they signaled the partners, those in the other boat, to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they were sinking. 8. And seeing, Simon Peter fell at the knees of Jesus, saying, Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, Lord. 9. for astonishment took hold of 165
him, and all those with him, at the haul of fish which they took;”
“And a woman being in a flow of blood from twelve years, who had spent her whole living on physicians, and could not e cured by anyone, 44. coming up behind, she touched the border of His garment. And instantly the flow of her blood stopped. 45. And Jesus said, Who was touching Me? And all having denied, Peter and those with Him said, Master, the crowds press on You and jostle. And do You say, Who was touching Me? 46. But Jesus said, Someone touched Me; for I knew power had gone out from Me.” Luke 8:43-46 “A certain one had planted a fig-tree in his vineyard. And He came looking for fruit on it, and did not find any. 7. And he said to the vinedresser, Behold, three years I come looking for fruit on this fig-tree, and found none. Cut it down, and why does it waste the ground? 8. And the vinedresser said to him, Sir, leave it also this year, until I shall dig around it and throw manure; 9. and see if it indeed makes fruit. But if not, in the future you may cut it down.” Luke 13:6-9 “And great crowds came together to Him, And turning He said to them, 26. If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brothers and sisters, and also his own soul, too, he cannot be My disciple. 27. And whoever does not bear his cross and does not come after Me, he is not able to be My disciple. 28. For which of you desiring to build a tower does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has the things to finish; 29. that having laid a foundation, and not having strength to finish all, those seeing begin to mock him, 30. saying, This man began to build, and did not have strength to finish. 31. Or what king going to attack another king in war does not first sit down and take counsel whether he is able with ten thousands to meet those coming upon him with twenty thousands? 32. But if not, he being still far off, sending a delegation he asks the things for peace. 33. So then everyone of you who does not abandon all his possessions is not able to be My disciple. 34. The salt is good, but if the salt becomes tasteless, with what will it be seasoned? 35. It is not fit for soil nor for fertilizer; they throw it out. The one having ears to hear, let him hear.” Luke 14:25-35 “God is a spirit, and the ones worshipping Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:24 “Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father; there is one accusing you, Moses, in whom you have hoped.” John 5:45 “Then seeing what miracle Jesus did, the men said, This is truly the Prophet, the one coming into the world.” John 6:14 166
“Jesus answered them and said, Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek, Me not because you saw miracles, but because you ate of the loaves and were satisfied. 27. Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of man will give to you; for god the Father sealed this One. 28. Then they said to Him, What may we do that we may work the works of god? 29. Jesus answered and said to them, this is the work of God, that you believe into Him whom that One sent. 30. Then they said to Him, Then what miracle do you do, that we may see and may believe you? What do you work? 31. Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, as it is written, “He gave them bread out of Heaven to eat.” 32. then Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Moses has not given you the bread out of Heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread out of Heaven. 33. For the bread of God is the One coming down out of Heaven and giving life to the world. 34. Then they said to Him, Lord, always give us this bread. 35. Jesus said to them, I am the Bread of life; the one coming to Me will not at all hunger, and the one believing into Me will never ever thirst. 36. But I said to you that you also have seen Me and did not believe. 37. All that the Fat4erth gives to Me will come to Me, and the one coming to Me I will in no way cast out. 38. For I have come down out of Heaven, not that I should do My will, but the will of Him who sent Me. 39. And this is the will of the father who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me, I shall not lose any of it, but shall raise it up in the last day. 40. And this is the will of the One who sent Me, that everyone seeing the son and believing into Him should have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” John 6:26-40 “Then hearing the word, many of the crowd said, This is truly the Prophet.” John 7:40 “If you had known Me, you would have known My father also; and from now on you do know Him, and have seen Him. 8. And Philip said to Him, Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us. 9. Jesus said to him, Am I so long as time with you, and you have not known Me, Philip? The one seeing Me has seen the Father! 10. Do you not believe that I am in the father and the Father is in Me? The words which I speak to you I do not speak to you I do not speak from My self, but the Father who abides in Me, He does the works.” 11. Believe Me that I am I the Father, and the Father is in Me; but if not, believe Me because of the works themselves.” John 14:7-12 “I am the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser. 2. Every branch in Me not bearing fruit, He takes it away; and each one bearing fruit, He prunes so that it may bear more fruit. 3. Your are already pruned because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4. Remain in Me, and I in you. As the branch is not able to bear fruit of itself, unless it remain in the vine, so neither can you 167
unless you remain in Me. 5. I am the Vine; you are the branches. He that remains in Me, and I in him, this one bears much fruit. For apart from Me you are not able to do anything. 6. Unless one remains in Me, he is cast out as the branch, and is dried up; and they gather and throw them into a fire, and they are burned. 7. If you remain in Me, and My words remain in you, whatever you desire you will ask, and it shall happen to you, 8. in this My Father is glorified, that you should bear much fruit; and you will be My disciples. 9. As the Father loved Me, I also loved you; continue in My love. 10. If you keep My commandments, you will continue in My love; as I have kept My Father’s commandments and continue in His love. 11. I have spoken these things to you that My joy may abide in you, and your joy may be full. 12. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I loved you. 13. Greater love than this has no one, that anyone should lay down his soul for his friends, 14. you are My friends if you do whatever I command you. 15. I no longer call your slaves, for the slave does not know what his Lord does. But I called you friends, because all things which I heard from My Father I made known to you.” John 15:1-15 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it has hated you.” John 15:18 “And I do not pray concerning these only, but also concerning those who will believe in Me through their word; 21. that all may be one, as You are in Me, Father, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22. And I have given them the glory which You have given Me, that they may be one, as We are one. 23. I in them, and You in Me, that they may be perfected in one, and that the world may know that You sent Me and loved them, even as You loved Me. 24. Father, I desire that those whom You have given Me, that where I am, they may also be with Me, that they may behold My glory which You gave Me, because You loved Me before the foundation of the world. 25. Righteous Father, indeed the world did not know You, but I knew You, and these have known that You sent Me. 26. And I made Your name known to them, and will make it known, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them and I in them.” John 17:20-26 “but you will receive power, the Holy Spirit coming upon you, and you will be witnesses of Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8 “And suddenly a sound came out of the heaven, as being borne along by a violent wind! And it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3. And tongues
as of fire appeared to them were being distributed; and it sat on each one of them.” Acts 2:2-3 “Men, Israelites, hear these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man from God, having been approved among you by powerful deeds and wonders and miracles, which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know,” Acts 2:22 “For Moses indeed said to the father, “The Lord your God will raise up to you a Prophet from among your brothers, One like me; you shall hear Him according to all things, whatever He may speak to you. 23. And it shall be that of every soul, whoever should not hear that Prophet shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.” Acts 3:22-23 “Then filled of the Holy Spirit, Peter said to them, Rulers of the pople, and elders of Israel; 31. And they having prayed, the place in which they were gathered was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and spoke the word of God with boldness. 33. And with great power the apostles gave testimony of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.” Acts 4:8, 31, 33 “And with one passion the crowds heeded that being said by Philip when they heard and saw the many miracles which he was doing. 7. For out of those having unclean spirits, many came out, crying with a loud voice. And were healed.” Acts 8:6-7 “Jesus, the One from Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went through doing good, and healing all those having been oppressed by the Devil, because God was with Him.” Acts 10:38 “But Saul, who is also Paul, being filled with the Holy Spirit, and looking intently on him,” Acts 13:9 “And these were more noble than those in Thessalonica; for they received the word with all readiness, daily examining the Scriptures if these things are so.” Acts 17:11 “For Gods wrath is revealed from Heaven on all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, holding the truth in unrighteousness,” Romans 1:18
“Because of this, even as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, so also death passed to all men, inasmuch as all sinned; 13. for sin was in the world until Law, but sin Is not charged where there is no law; 14. but death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of Adam’s transgression, who is a type of the coming One. 15. But the free gift shall not be also like the offense, for if by the offense of the one the many died, much more the grace of God, and the gift in grace, which is of the one Man, Jesus Christ, did abound to the many. 16. And the gift shall not be as by one having sinned; for indeed the judgment was of one to condemnation; but the free gift is of many offenses to justification. 17. For if by the offense of the one death reigned by the one, much more those who are receiving the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall rule in life by the One, Jesus Christ. 18. So, then, as through one offense it was toward all men to condemnation, so also by one accomplished righteousness toward all men to justification of life. 19. For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were constituted sinners, so also by the obedience of the One the many shall be constituted righteous.” Romans 5:12-19 “What then shall we say? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? 2. Let it not be! We who died to sin, how shall we still live in it? 3. Or are you ignorant that all who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4. Then we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, so also we should walk in newness of life. 5. For if we have been joined together in the likeness of His death, so also shall we be in the resurrection; 6. knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be annulled, so the we no longer serve sin. 7. For the one that died has been justified from sin. 8. But if we died with Christ, we believe that also we shall live with Him,” Romans 6:1-8 “for if you live according to the flesh, you are going to die. But if by the Spirit you put to death the practices of the body, you will live.” Romans 8:13 “Then faith is of hearing, and hearing through the word of God.” Romans 10:17 “For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers-so that you may not be wise within yourselves-that hardness in part has happened to Israel, until the fullness of the nations comes in; Romans 11:25 “Let love be without dissimulation, shrinking from evil, cleaving to good;” Romans 12:9
“Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery having been kept unvoiced during eternal times.” Romans 16:25 “And when I came to you, brothers, I did not come with excellency of word or wisdom, declaring to you the testimony of God. 2. For I decided not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ, and Him having been crucified. 3. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4. And my word and my preaching was not in moving words of human wisdom, but in proof of the Spirit and of power; 5. that your faith might not be in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, having been hidden, which God predetermined before the ages for our glory; 8. which not one of the rulers of this age has known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory, 9. according as it has been written, “Eye has not seen, and ear has not heard,” nor has it risen up into the heart of man, “the things which God has prepared for those that love Him.” 10. But God revealed them to us by His Spirit, for (the) Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11. For who among men knows the things of a man, except the spirit of a man within him? So also no one has known the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12. But we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit from God; that we may know the things freely given to us by God;” 1 Corinthians 2:7-12 “According to God’s grace given to me, as a wise master-builder, I laid a foundation; but another builds on it. But let each one observe how he builds.” 1Corinthians 3:10 “And, brothers, I transferred these things to myself and Apollos because of you, that in us you may learn not to think above what has been written, that you not be puffed up one over the other.” 1 Corinthians 4:6 “For you were brought with a price; then glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:20 “You are not able to drink the cup of the Lord and a cup of demons, you cannot partake of the table of the Lord and a table of demons.” 1 Corinthians 10:21 “But there are differences of gifts, but the same Spirit; 5. and there are differences of ministries, yet the same Lord. 6. And there are differences of workings, but the same God is working all things in all. 7. But to each one is 171
given the showing forth of the Spirit, to our profit. 8. for through the Spirit is given to one a word of wisdom; and to another, a word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit;” 1 Corinthians 12:4-8 “and to another faith by the same spirit, and to another, gifts of healing by the same Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 12:9 “and to another working of powers; and to another, prophecy; and to another, discerning of spirits; and to another interpretations of languages.” 1 Corinthians 12:10 “But the one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing separately to each as He wills.” 1 Corinthians 12:11 “Brothers, do not be children in your minds, but in malice be like infants, and in your minds be mature. 21. It has been written in the Law, “By other tongues and by other lips I will speak to this people, and even so they will not hear Me, say the Lord,” 22. So that tongues are not a sign to those believing, but to those not believing. But prophecy is not to those not believing, but to those believing.” 1 Corinthians 14:20-22 “So also it has been written, “This first man, Adam, became a living soul” the last Adam became a life-giving Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 15:45 “For I am jealous over you with a jealousy of God. For I have promised you to one Man, to present you a pure virgin to Christ. 3. But I fear lest by any means, as the serpent deceived Eve in his craftiness, so your thoughts should be corrupted from the purity which is due to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 11:2-3 “For if, indeed, the one coming proclaims another Jesus, whom we have not proclaimed, or if you receive another spirit which you have not received, or another gospel which you never accepted, you might well endure these.” 2 Corinthians 11:4 “Or did I commit sin, humbling myself that you might be exalted, because I preached the gospel of God to you without charge? 8. I stripped other churches, receiving wages for the serving of you. 9. And being present with you, and lacking, I was not a burden to anyone. The brothers coming from Macedonia completely made up for my lack. And in every way I kept myself without burden to you; and I will keep myself. 10. The truth of Christ is in me, that this boasting shall not be silenced in me in the regions of Achaia. 11. 172
Why? Because I do no love you? God knows. 12. But what I do, I also will do, that I may cut off the opportunity of those desiring an opportunity, so that in that which they boast, they be found also as we. 13. For such ones are false apostles, deceitful workers transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14. Did not Satan marvelously transform himself into an angel of light? 15. It is not a great thing, then, if also his ministers transform themselves as ministers of righteousness; whose end will be according to their works.” 2 Corinthians 11:7-15 “examine yourselves, whether you are in the faith; prove yourselves. Or do you not yourselves know that Jesus Christ is in you, unless you are reprobates? 2 Corinthians 13:5 “I wonder that you are so quickly being transferred from Him having called you by the grace of Christ to another gospel, 7. which is not another; only some there are troubling you and desiring to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8. But even if we, or an angel out of Heaven, should preach a gospel to you beside what we preache3d to you, let him be accursed. 9. As we have said before, and now I say again, If anyone preaches a gospel to you beside what you received, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:6-9 “And the Scripture foreseeing that God would justify the nations by faith, preached the gospel before to Abraham: “All the nations will be blessed in you.” 16. But the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his Seed-it does not say, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, “And to your Seed,” which is Christ.” Galatians 3:8, 16 “But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, having come out of a woman, having come under law.” Galatians 4:4 “Now the works of the flesh are clearly revealed, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lustfulness,” Galatians 5:19 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faith, 23. meekness, self-control-against such things there is not a law.” Galatians 5:22-23
“in which you then walked according to the course of this world, according to the ruler of the authority of the air, the spirit now working in the sons of disobedience;” Ephesians 2:2 “and to bring all to light what is the fellowship of the mystery having been hidden from eternity in God the One creating all things through Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 3:9 “But to each one of us was given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8. Therefore, He says, “Having gone up on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men.”- 9. but that He went up, what is it except that He also first came down into the lower parts of the earth? 10. He that came down is the same who also went up above all the heavens, that He might fill all things. 11. And He gave some to be apostles, some, prophets; some evangelists, some, pastors, and teachers; 12. with a view to the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ; 13. until we all may come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a full-grown man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. 14. so that we may no longer be infants, having been blown and carried to and from by every wind of doctrine, in the underhandedness of men, in craftiness with a view to the trickery of error; 15. but speaking the truth in love, we may grow up into Him in all things, who is the head, the Christ; 16. from whom all the body having been fitted and compacted together through every assisting bond, according to the working of one measure in each part, producing the growth of the body to the building up of itself in love.” Ephesians 4:7-16 “Let no one deceive you with empty words, for through these the wrath of God comes on the sons of disobedience.” Ephesians 5:6 “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even reprove them.” Ephesians 5:11 “And do not be drunk with wine, in which is debauchery, but be filled by the Spirit,” Ephesians 5:18 “that He might sanctify it, cleansing it by the washing of the water in the word, 27. that He might present it to Himself as the glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such things; but that it be holy and without blemish.” Ephesians 5:26-27 “For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones. 32. The mystery is great, but I speak as to Christ and as to the church.” Ephesians 5:30, 32 174
“For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily: 10. and having been filled, you are in Him, who is the Head of all rule and authority, Colossians 2:9-10 “And whatever you may do, work farm the soul, as to the Lord, and not to men, 24. knowing that from the Lord you shall receive the reward of the inheritance. For you serve the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23-24 “Test all things, hold fast to the good.”
1 Thessalonians 5:21
“Keep back from every form of evil.”
1 Thessalonians 5:22
“His coming is according to the working of Satan in all power and miracles and lying wonders, 10. and in all deceit of unrighteousness in those being lost, because they did not receive the love of the truth in order for them to be saved. 11. And because of this, God will send to them a working of error, for them to believe the lie, 12. that all may be judged, those not believing the truth, but who have delighted in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 “knowing this, that law is not laid down for a righteous one but for lawless and unruly ones, for ungodly and sinful ones, for unholy and profane ones, for slayers of fathers and slayers of mothers, for murderers, 10. for fornicators, for homosexuals, for slaver traders, for liars, for perjurers, and if any other thing opposes sound teaching, 11. according to the gospel of the glory of the blessed God with which I was entrusted.” 1 Timothy 1:9-11 “But he must also have a good witness from those outside, that he not fall into reproach, and into a snare of the Devil.” 1 Timothy 3:7 “But the Spirit expressly says in the latter times some will depart from the faith, cleaving to deceiving spirits and teachings of demons, 2. in hypocrisy of liars, being seared in their own conscience,” 1 Timothy 4:1-2 “Hold a pattern of sound words which you heard from me, in faith and love in Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 1:13 “Earnestly study to show yourself approved to God, a workman unashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15
“However, the foundation of God stands firm, having this seal, “The Lord knew those being His;” also, “Let everyone naming the name of Christ depart from unrighteousness.” 2 Timothy 2:19 “But you keep on in what you learned and were assured of, knowing from whom you learned,” 2 Timothy 3:14 “Every Scripture is God breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; 17. so that the man of God may be perfect, fully furnished for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17 “For a time will be when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own lusts, they will heap up to themselves teachers tickling the ear;” 2 Timothy 4:3 “and they will turn away the ear from the truth, and will be turned aside to myths.” 2 Timothy 4:4 “for Demas deserted me, loving the present age; and he went to Thessalonica, Crescens went to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia; 14. Alexander the coppersmith showed many evil things to me. The Lord will give to him according to his works.” 2 Timothy 4:10, 14 “For if the word spoken by angels was confirmed, and every transgression and disobedience receive a just repayment, 3. how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? Which having received a beginning to be spoken through the Lord, was confirmed to us by the ones hearing; 4. God bearing witness with them by both miracles and wonders, and by various works of power, even by distribution of the Holy Spirit, according to His will.” Hebrews 2:2-4 “Since, then, the children have partaken of flesh and blood, in like manner He Himself also shared the same things, that through death He might cause to cease the one having the power of death, that is, the Devil; Hebrews 2:14 “saying “Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.” Hebrews 6:14 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not being seen. 2. For by this the elders obtained witness. 3. By faith we understand the worlds to have been framed by the word of God so that the things seen should not come into being out of things that appear.” Hebrews 11:1-3 176
“And truly if they remembered that from which they came out, they had time to return. 16. But now they stretch forth to a better, that is, a heavenly land. Therefore, God is not ashamed of them, to be called their God; for He prepared a city for them.” Hebrews 11:15-16 “And what more may I say? For the times will fail me telling about Gideon, Barak, and also Samson and Jephthah, and also David and Samuel, and the prophets, 32. who through faith overcame kingdoms, worked out righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, 34. quenched the power of fire, escaped the mouths of the sword, acquired power from weakness, became strong in war, made armies of foreigners to yield. 35. Women received their dead by resurrection; but others were beaten to death, not accepting deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection. 36. And others received trail of mockings and of floggings; yea, more of bonds and of prison: 37. they were stoned; they were tried; they were sawn in two; they died by murder of sword; they went about in sheepskins and in goatskins, being in need, being afflicted, being ill-treated; 38. of whom the world was not worthy, wandering in deserts, and mountains, and caves, and the holes of the earth.” Hebrews 11:32-38 “being about to receive the wages of unrighteousness, having deemed indulgence in the day to be pleasure; reveling in spots and blemishes, feasting along with you in their deceits; 14. having eyes full of an adulteress, and never ceasing from sin; alluring unsettled souls; having a heart busied with covetousness; cursed children;” 2 Peter 13-14 “But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of His Son Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7 “And the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need that anyone teach you. But as His anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and as He taught you, abide in Him.” 1 John 2:27 “Every one practicing sin also practices lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.” 1 John 3:4 “I wrote to the church, but he loving to be first of them, Diotrephes, does not receive us.” 3 John 9 177
“These are the ones setting themselves apart, animal like one, not having the Spirit.” Jude 19 “the twenty-four elders fall down before Him sitting on the throne; and they will worship the One loving forever and ever, and will throw their crowns before the throne, saying,” Revelation 4:10 “And one of the elders said to me, Do not weep, Behold, the Lion being of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, overcame so as to open the scroll, and to loose its seven seals.” Revelation 5:5 “Because of this, be glad, the heavens and those tabernacling in them, Woe to the ones dwelling on the earth, and in the sea, because the Devil came down to you having great anger, knowing that he has a little time! 13. And when the dragon saw that he was cast out onto the earth, he pursued the woman who bore the male.” Revelation 12:12-13 “And if anyone was not found having been written in the Scroll of Life, he was thrown into the Lake of Fire.” Revelation 20:15 “And I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty is its temple, even the Lamb. 23. And the city had no need of the sun, nor of the moon, that they might shine in it, for the glory of god illuminated it, even its lamp is the Lamb. 24. And the nations of the ones saved will walk in its light; and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. 25. And its gates may not at all be shut by day, for no night will be there. 26. And they will bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. 27. And all profaning may not at all enter into it, or any making an abomination or a lie; but only the ones having been written in the Scroll of Life of the Lamb.” Revelation 21:22-27

False Signs and Wonders There are gross works of darkness affecting the house of God in these end times under the guise of the â€˜glory invasion.â€™ Our churches are being invaded by false signs and wonders and people are receiving any sign and wonder as coming from the throne room of God when in fact these signs and wonders are from the gods of Baal-Zebub Prince of demons and Dianna the false prophetess. The enemy is always at work to immobilize the church and immobilize us therefore when we accept unscriptural manifestations, signs and wonders this gives them an open door to bring in their furniture. By this deception they will continue to scheme to decorate until they have hung the curtains and put up the blinds so the conscience is so seared that you will accept their books, their teachings and other bizarre manifestations as being the work of The Holy Spirit. This book is written to provoke you to question what you see, what you have received and to bring home that it is a must that you prayerfully seek Jesus Christ along with His Word before you accept any sign and wonder in the church today or for the church today. We all fall into error when we do not know the Scriptures or the true power of God but within these pages are Biblical truths that expose these false signs and manifestations against the knowledge of The Word and His boundaries of what are true signs and wonders.
