most popular sayings among today’s church leadership in order to mesmerize their
“The Lord told me, or The Holy Spirit just said to me” I’m
often left asking the question
“Do these Religious Leaders really know how
dangerous it is to tell lies in God’s name?”
what most church leaders failed to relies!
They’re constantly opening doors for the enemy / Satan to gain access
into the affairs of their lives and ministries when they start prophet-lying.
most cases, it’s normally during the height of a church service when the
atmosphere is emotionally charged that the religious leaders in seeking to
mesmerize and captivate their congregation get off into the spirit of
prophet-lying. This is done so subtlety in that the church leaders sees nothing
wrong with them saying
“God just told me to tell you A.B. or C.” when
in fact God / Yahweh has said no such thing to them.
and teaching the uncompromising, unadulterated word of God as the Holy Spirit
leads is powerful enough to set the captives free, to bind up the broken
hearted and to cause a surrendering of men’s heart unto the Lord. This is
evident throughout the New Testament church and it is something that the Anti-
Christ spirit has forever been working and fighting against; one of his strategic
moves is that of causing a spirit of prophet-lying to be interjected into the
preached / teaching of God’s word.
is simply looking for available, submissive vessels that He can use; those who
will not seek personal glory, attention and honor, but rather will give all
glory and honor unto Him. There’s no man or woman (Bishop, Doctor, Apostle,
Pastor, Prophet, etc ;) that can make God’s word come to pass; for God, Himself
watches over His word to perform it.
Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well
seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.”
God speaks, those who are led by His Spirit will know that He has spoken;
unlike that which we’re seeing taking place in the church today. Whereby a
church leader can get up and emotionally entertain / move his or her
congregation and no change takes place in the lives of the hearers, and even
the preachers. When and wherever there’s a Rhema word from God there’s change; either
change in the lives of the hearers or change in the place for which that word
has been given.
lies one of our (Today’s Church) many problems; we’ve skillfully mastered the
art of condoning and tolerating sin, and in so doing we will twist, bend, misappropriate
and even take the word of God out of context.
To pacify the outcry against the sinful lifestyle (especially if it’s
the lifestyle of a Leader), the following can often be heard
the bible say; We all have sin and come short of God’s glory” This is
where the religious church games comes into play, where supposedly mature church-folks
believe that they can live any kind of sinful lifestyle and then pull / play
their Grace card. What’s interesting with these types of Christians is that
they can preach, prophesy, sing songs unto the Lord or skillfully play an instrument
in church at the drop of a dime; and afterwards without any kind of fear for
God or guilt walk right back into the ungodly lifestyle.
compelled to ask this question
“With all of the so-called prophets around
today and the amount of prophecy that’s going forth, how it is that God isn’t
speaking to all the mess that’s going on in the church; especially by leaders? Pastors
physically fighting each other, and taking one another to court for control of
the church; Men lying with men / homosexuality, Women lying with women / lesbianism,
Adultery, Fornication, financial greed and selfish hoarding, etc; by those
within the church
to popular erroneous religious beliefs, the financial, feel good, God’s going
to bless someone prophecies that are going forth in the church today are not of
God but rather are of the ulterior motives Pastors and False Prophets that are
scattering and dividing His sheep. The spiritual, moral, social and ethical
deterioration of our nation speaks loudly to this undisputable, undeniable fact.
God / Yahweh spoke to the Nation of Israel through His prophet Jeremiah, He’s
so speaking to us today.
1. Woe be unto the pastors that
destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.
"The priests are like the prophets, all ungodly, wicked men. I have
seen their despicable acts right here in my own Temple," says the LORD.
But now I see that the prophets of Jerusalem
are even worse! They commit adultery, and they love dishonesty. They encourage
those who are doing evil instead of turning them away from their sins. These
prophets are as wicked as the people of Sodom and Gomorrah once were."
This is my warning to my
people," says the LORD Almighty. "Do not listen to these prophets
when they prophesy to you, filling you with futile hopes. They are making up
everything they say. They do not speak for the LORD!
"I have not sent these
prophets, yet they claim to speak for me. I have given them no message, yet
If they had listened to me, they
would have spoken my words and turned my people from their evil ways.
Am I a God who is only in one
place?" asks the LORD. "Do they think I cannot see what they are
a Pastor, I’m not ignorant of the fact that by declaring God’s uncompromised,
unadulterated word will forever put me on the opposite side of today’s
Religious Leaders who are building their empires / dynasties from the church pulpit;
but here’s my consistent stand / position. I would rather have the entire
religious community mad / angry at me every day of my life for declaring God’s
word, rather than to have God angry at me ONE DAY for not doing so.
God / Yahweh speaks He doesn’t gives suggestions and recommendations but rather
He gives commands, instructions and directions, etc;
that hat an ear to hear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the church:
