Spiritual Judgements are Not Always External:

Spiritual Judgements are Not External: People mistakenly think Gods judgement on sin looks like a sickness, or a big loss of money or influence. A lot of times the judgement of God will come on false prophets in the form of a spirit of delusion: when the spiritual hypocrite becomes spiritually stupid and does and says stupider and stupider things as time goes on.

The sad thing is, the stupider and more deluded the false prophet gets, the more their fans defend them! That’s how they continue to deceive MANY! They are able to decieve the people that care about the outside more than the heart. Thats exactly how God wants it. Matthew 7:15-18, 2 Thessalonians 2:10-13

2 Timothy 3:13

But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worsedeceivingand being deceived.

God Allows False Apostles and False Prophets to Grow – To See if You Love HIM

God Allows false apostles and false prophets to grow and flourish so that those who love Him in truth can prove their love and integrity with the decisions they make to test them and stand against them and avoid them.

Revelations 2:2
I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:

2 Thessalonians 2
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.

False teachers are easy to spot because they violate scripture. They are only easy to spot if you are biblically literate: having read the bible cover to cover several times while filled with the Holy Spirit in proper Christlike discipleship.

False prophets are a lot trickier because they say everything right and are great actors but they do the opposite and spread corruption and mixture and iniquity.

False apostles are the hardest to test. They say that themselves or their organization is “sent” from God, but their motive is always to eat the flock. It takes time for their corrupt fruit to show up, and they are really good at making themselves into “ministers of righteousness.”

But time always tells that they are “workers” of iniquity. Iniquity spreads as they continue to grow. Eventually iniquity turns into obvious sin, like a virus that takes time before the symptoms show up.

2 Corinthians 11:13
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Thank GOD for True Leaders who Love the Flock more than they Love the Devil!

They feed the Flock because they Love JESUS first (John 21).

Apostasy is Divorce | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 34 –

Apostasy – The Roots of Divorce in the Church

God said let no man separate what God put together. God is witness with us and our wives, because of the covenant promises we make before Him. God hates divorce.

14 Yet ye say , Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously : yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. 15 And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth. 16 For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away : for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously Malachi 2 

So why is divorce so common in the church? I learned something yesterday that blew my mind. Just as we learned about Jezebel, and how adultery and fornication is spiritual, as well as natural. “First the Natural, then the Spiritual. (1 Corinthians 15)” Well look at the definitionof apostasy.

Apostasia: a falling away, defection, apostasy.

“The Greek word Apostosia comes from the root word
Apostasion meaning “divorce.”  Those who
fall into apostasy are divorced from God.”

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed , the son of perdition; 2 Thessalonians 2

So “falling away” from God (apostasy) and “putting away” (divorce) are closely related.  So now we have an insight into why there is so much divorce in the Church. Because some of us have fallen away from God. The natural reflects the spiritual.

The mercy of the Lord endures forever, so believe me I’m not trying to condemn anyone who has ever had a divorce. I’m just trying to hear what God is saying and make a spiritual connection that will give us wisdom on the decisions we make. Could the root of divorce in the Church be false doctrine in the Church, and a falling away from God? If I’m contemplating divorce, is there false doctrine in my life that has caused me to fall away from God first? Is the rate of divorce in the Church evidence that we are in the middle of the great falling away already? If my spiritual leader is divorcing his wife, has he divorced God already too? Should I follow someone who has divorced God? Hmm… lets turn our wheels and keep our eyes open. Let’s keep our hearts married to God, then our marriages will be better and stronger for it.

Shot out to my wife Shereena! I love you – divorce was never and will never be an option:-) Because we love Jesus first!

Let’s turn our hearts back to God!

We will be seeking to achieve the great repentance that is necessary to turn our city and nation around at DaHOP on Friday nights. Join us. Daniel turned a nation repenting and praying all by himself! So if 3 of you come and join us on Fridays leading up to The Call and join us at The Call in TRUE REPENTANCE…. What could happen in our nation?

Make your way to Detroit on 11-11-11 for The Call. Pray with us. Join people all over Detroit that are fasting and praying in preparation for God to do something BIG in our city, nation, and world… NOW. Yes, NOW.
