Discerning False Teachers and False Prophets, and Knowing them By their FRUITS

Discerning False Teachers and False Prophets, and Knowing them By their FRUITS

Deception is not a matter of intelligence. Deception is a matter of character, integrity and love for the truth.

According to 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12, God is sending a strong delusion. Why? To manifest who is in love with truth and who isn’t. This is why you have to love the truth more than you love your life. This is not about intelligence; because a high IQ doesn’t prevent deception. This is about character, integrity, and love for the truth.

If you were living in John chapter 6 and you took out a YouTube clip of Jesus saying “eat my flesh and drink my blood…” you could call Jesus a false teacher. You could say He was teaching cannibalism.

Obviously Jesus is not a false anything. He is the truth. But sometimes Jesus had a purpose in saying things without necessarily making sure that everyone understood.

Contrary to popular opinion, Jesus did not speak in parables to make things clear. Jesus spoke in obscure parables so that the hardhearted could remain hard, and the soft-hearted would ask for more. He wanted those who loved the truth to continue with Him.

Mark 4: 11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.

Anyone and everyone can be a false teacher or false prophet if their words are taken out of context, even Jesus Himself.

Now the balance of that is: it’s very important to use our tongues in a way that does not cause people to stumble away from obedience (James 3). Our communication should be to encourage obedience and hunger for God. But we don’t use lies or deception, even if for the purpose of getting people to do whats right. Titus 2:7-8 instructs us to have sound, sober, and grave speech that cannot be condemned.

However, Jesus did not instruct to try to catch inarticulate people in their mistakes. Jesus did not instruct us to condemn people that are not as smart as we are. Jesus instructed us to “know them by their fruits.”

Matthew 7:15 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.

We don’t get to condemn people for having a different communication style than we prefer, whether it be free-flowing, or systematic and structured. Jesus said to “know them by their fruit,” so we don’t get to judge people for their preference of communication style instead of their fruit.

The Holy Spirit is available to give you a gift of discerning of of spirits, but ultimately, only those who are obedient to God’s will really understand doctrine (John 7:17). But if you want to know people by fruit like Jesus instructed us, then here are some of the actual biblical evidence and fruits of error:

  • Consistent and persistent communication of error that moves people hearts away from the living God (Jeremiah 23:1-22).
  • Saying everything exactly right or even doing supernatural miracles, but moving people’s hearts away from the living God (Deuteronomy 13:1-3).
  • Physical adultery, sexual sins, fornication, and unfaithfulness to marriage covenants. (1 Timothy 3:2, 2 Peter 2:14)
  • Partnerships with the ungodly in ministry, and mixing the holy with the profane in worship (James 4:4, Revelation 2:14)
  • Clear evidence of covetousness. Not wealth from diligent work, but from greed. (Colossians 3:5, 1 Timothy 3:3)
  • Drunkenness or dependence upon addicting substances, a lack of sobriety (1 Timothy 3).
  • Ungodly children, that are not in subjection or respectful (Matthew 11:19, 1 Timothy 3:4,5).
  • Consistent and persistent apostasy, divorcing from truth, denying the Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 2:1, 1 Corinthians 12:2).
  • Persistent resisting of the Holy Spirit, holiness, and the power of the living God. Having a form of godliness but denying the supernatural power thereof (Acts 7:51, 2 Timothy 3:5)
  • Seeking glory for self, brand, ministry, or group, instead of God( John 7:18). A different agenda, to sell a product instead of freely communicate the glory of God.
  • Using doctrines of grace to strengthen subtle rebellion against the Lord instead of strengthening prayer, holiness, and obedience (Hebrews 10:29, Jude 1:4, Jeremiah 28:15-17, Hananiah = Yahweh is gracious)
  • Consistent and persistent teaching that moves people’s hearts away from prayer, holiness, or obedience. They will never articulate these things directly, but there will be a communication of fancy deep teaching or revelation that will result in this heart direction. This is a crucial point, because a prophet or teacher could say everything right, but have an overall agenda that leads people away from the heart of God.
  • Someone else might not have the best speech, but when you get to understand their heart and look at FRUIT, they lead people into sanctification, prayer and obedient partnership with God through Jesus Christ. These people may be assisted to help them communicate their points better (Acts 18:26).

By Biblical Definition, a prophet that cannot give specific practical instructions for returning to the Commandments, the Heart, the Salvation, and the Order of YAH is a false prophet.

Jeremiah 23:22
But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.

Jezebel in a Nutshell

The spirit of Jezebel does 2 main things, 1. TEACH and 2. SEDUCE:

She teaches false doctrine and natural OR spiritual fornication.

She seduces people into rebellion, disorder, and idolatry.

Don’t follow the spirit of Jezebel or you will die spiritually.

Revelation 2:20
Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to TEACH and to SEDUCE my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

The Demon Spirit of Jezebel destroys your testimony with compromise, hardens your heart to true repentance, then “ELEVATES” your ministry so the NEXT generation can be Inspired and influenced with mixed seed, and then eventually aborted. It’s a genius plan, actually. But then – God sends the Spirit of Elijah.

99% of American ministries don’t understand how the demonic spirit of Jezebel really works, they think it’s a bossy woman in a red dress LOL.

85% of the ministries in America either “look up to” and are inspired by a ministry in Jezebels mixture and deception, or can’t wait to be the “next in line” to be put at the top by her compromise, influence, money, and power.

Subscribing to this blog WWW.SOSPRESSION.COM, and reading the book “Killing Idols for REVIVAL” will put you in the 1%. It will equip you to endure until the end, escape deception, shine like the sun with wisdom and purity in the last darkest days, and rule the nations with a rod of iron.

Read Revelation 2

Don’t Ever Buy, Power, Influence, and Confidence from the Devil

The dumbest purchase is to buy from the devil what you already have for free in Christ. Luke 4 the devil tried to sell Jesus power influence and confidence but good thing Jesus already had it – or He would have signed with the devil and tried to make it look like He was still with God.

Its the same way in our lives. Whenever we try to “buy” power, influence or confidence from the devil to be accepted by the world system – its a sign of spiritual retardation.

Killing Idols – Saving Whitney Houston

Aren’t you tired of talented musicians and singers being overcome by drugs, deception, and death?

When you know the root, you know the fruit. When it comes down to it, satan killed Whitney Houston because satan is at the root of the music industry. The music industry steals, kills, and destroys people.

God is going to change the music industry so that talented people like Whitney Houston can be spared a life of
drugs, witchcraft, deception, and death.

How is God going to do it? By using us to expose the principalities at the top and kill the idols from the root.

In our first book Killing Idols For REVIVAL: A Behind The Scenes Look at the 9 Enemies of God’s Harvest, God used us to declare and expose God’s plans to purify the Music Industry, the Church, and move us into the next phase of the Kingdom of God.

Sometimes people think I’m crazy when I say “The music Industry has no right to exist in it’s current state.” But its true. Whitney Houston was trapped by deception. Her mother sang background for Elvis before she became saved. Her Godmother Aretha Franklin also started out in church, but became a secular superstar. Dionne Warwick, a psychic, was her close relative. There is a strong temptation to use God’s gifts of worship for evil and vanity, witchcraft, drugs, and alchohol.

There is a very strong deception, especially for God’s anointed musicians and singers. It’s called the doctrine of Jezebel. We have to expose the behind the scenes principalities and strongholds if we want to save people like Whitney Houston.

Pearl Harbor is Coming for the Body of Christ

This vision is amazing… are you ready to die for Christ?
Because that’s the only way you will live. Hold onto Christ, don’t trick out.

-by James Kehrli.

In December of 1984, about a week after I purchased an old 1940
Cadillac sedan, I was driving around thinking about times gone by,
particularly the time before and during World War II. Suddenly I
heard the Lord say to me, very softly, “It’s 1940 and Pearl Harbor
is coming up for the Church.” I thought about betrayal, warfare,
death and awakening! I prayed to the Lord about it and He began
to reveal to me more about Pearl Harbor. He reminded me of a
scene from the film Tora Tora Tora in which one of the Japanese
military leaders remarked, after their attack on Pearl Harbor, “I
fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him
with a terrible resolve.” I thought about the Church finally waking
up to her true condition. I thought about the terrible price our
country paid, in the 1940’s to wake up to the realities of the world
political situation. The price was human life, suffering, and
destruction. But we did wake up. I thought about December 8,
1941 when we declared war against the Axis powers. Before that
time we were sending arms, supplies and money to our allies, but
we were not sending men to help fight. We watched China, the
Pacific Islands, France and much of Europe fall to Germany, Italy,
and Japan, but we were not personally affected so we did not enter
the warfare. It took a catastrophic event to wake us up.

I prayed about and meditated on what I had heard until May of 1985,
when I again heard from God during a baptismal service in our
Church. The person to be baptized was an older lady who was
quite concerned, even a little frightened, about being fully immersed.
But she, after fifty years of disobedience and rebellion against God,
desired to be baptized for the first time. Right before I was going
to enter the water with her, a message in tongues came forth from
my wife. The Lord gave me the interpretation by means of the
following vision.

This vision describes a future time of great hardship and great
blessing for the Body of Christ.

He showed me a deep harbor with blue-green water that was clear
and calm. There was a Person in the water. This Person was not
swimming or standing, but just floating in an upright position. He
was motionless, like a sailing ship listing in a windless sea. Many
Japanese Zero aircraft came in from the east and proceeded to
dive-bomb and strafe the body in the water and the body began to
slowly sink. Eventually the body was entirely under the water. As
he went down, I could see that there were many little people on
this Body. As this Body sank deeper into the water, many of these
small people jumped off just before they were about to enter the
water. There were thousands of people jumping off and swimming
away from this slow but steadily sinking Body. Some of these
people jumped onto beds, which the Lord made clear to me were
beds of adultery,and floated away off to the left. Others jumped
onto whiskey bottles and paddled away; still others jumped on
books, while others swam off on their own strength. All of the
people were floating, swimming or paddling in the same direction.
I looked over in that direction, which was to my left, and I saw an
extremely beautiful, gigantic woman, with skin and clothing of a
deep reddish purple hue standing solidly on the harbor floor. She
stretched out her arms toward the sinking Body and got the
attention of many as she very sweetly, seductively, and sincerely
called out, “Come unto me all ye that are weary and heavy laden,
and I will give you WHAT YOU WANT!”

The people who were jumping off were in a panic, like rats leaving
a sinking ship. Some scurried to higher ground on the Body, going
from the shoulders to the ears and finally jumping off the top of the
head right before it went under.It was clear that THEY DID NOT
WANT TO LEAVE THIS BODY, but it was equally clear that they
were not going down under the water with it either. The Body now
was completely under the water, sinking steadily toward the
bottom. Some of the little people hung on as it sank, but after a
few seconds of holding their breath, they gave up, swam for the top,
gulped a mouth full of air, and swam off toward the woman.

The apparently lifeless Body sank deeper and deeper into the
clear blue-green water. As it sank I could see at the bottom of the
harbor a beautiful, large, perfect pearl – obviously of great value. It
was supernaturally large and beautiful, lustrous, pure and round. As
I watched, I could see the Body change shape from that of a single
being, with little people desperately hanging on it, to many little
individual people swimming deep enough to get to this beautiful
Pearl. As they went deeper, many chose to quit and swim to the
surface for air and life and then go over to the beautiful woman. All
who quit diving eventually swam over to the beautiful woman.

Finally, I saw a number of these small people swim to the Pearl
and touch it, and embrace it. But to do this, everyone who dove
down reached a point when they realized that their own natural
ability to hold their breath and dive deeper would not be enough.
Those who dove down and touched this Pearl all came to
understand that they would have to expend all of their natural
strength before they touched and embraced the Pearl of Great
Price. This did not keep them from diving down though, because
the closer they got to the Pearl, the more of His beauty they saw.
I saw many touch and embrace the Pearl and then immediately
shoot straight up. As each of these little people shot up from the
floor of the Harbor, each had the Pearl. As this group of individuals
rose higher and higher, they all became one Body again. By the
time these Pearl-laden people reached the surface they burst forth
from the waters as one Body, the Body of Christ. These people
were manifestly His own possession and they in turn possessed
the Pearl of Great Price, Jesus Christ Himself.

As the Lord was showing me this beautiful picture, He spoke to
me and said, “Even as Jesus came out of the waters of baptism,
so My Body will come out of Pearl Harbor with a new and powerful
anointing of My Holy Spirit, and a new and deadly power to fight the
enemy.” He said that there indeed would come upon the Church
of Jesus Christ a Pearl Harbor experience like the United States
experienced on December 7, 1941. He said that when the Body
of Christ begins to sink under the water, because of a soon-coming,
devastating attack of the enemy, MANY will choose to desert our
Lord Jesus Christ because they do not esteem the Pearl of Great
Price (Jesus Himself) worth the price – death to their own selfish
desires. They will not make the selfless effort of love to dive
deeply enough to embrace Him because they do not love Him
more than their own lives. Many will choose not to identify with
what they assume is a defeated individual or group. They look
upon themselves as winners and will not identify with a Jesus that
is apparently being defeated. They will choose to identify with the
beautiful woman of the harbor who gives them what they want. As
the vision revealed, many who leapt off the sinking Body because
the woman of the harbor promised them success. Because of this
they went to her. Many others did not feel that it was necessary
to pay such a high price to apprehend Jesus, and they felt that
the beautiful woman would give them Jesus on their own terms.

As the Body of Christ came out of the waters of death, the Lord
said that His Body was now fully alive and would now fight the
enemy with purpose and real anointing. Also His Body would now
use only supernatural weaponry. He spoke so clearly to me about
the weapons. He said, “Even as the United States entered the
Second World War using conventional weapons to fight the enemy,
and ended the war with the atomic bomb, a weapon beyond their
comprehension; so My people will begin this spiritual war with
conventional weapons in the Spirit, but by the end of this war to
end all wars, they will be using atomic bombs of the Spirit”. The
Lord made it clear that we will come out of the water equipped with
God-given anointing to REALLY heal the sick, work miracles, and
deliver those in demonic bondage. He also made it clear that
before the warfare ends, we will be moving in a dimension of
spiritual warfare that is unimaginable to us now. We will do greater
works than Jesus did and we will see the demon hordes routed like
never before.

After this message in tongues and interpretation was given, my
attention turned back to the woman who was to be baptized. Then
the Lord said that the Pearl Harbor experience for His Church
would be similar to this woman’s baptism. I closely watched this
baptism to see what the Lord meant. The woman was very nervous
and quite afraid of going under the water. I assured her that she
would be all right. After several moments of prayer and a short
teaching on what baptism represented, she was plunged underneath
the water. She came out of the water with her hands lifted up,
praising God. I had not told anyone what the Lord told me about
this woman’s baptism, because I did not know exactly what was
going to happen. When she recovered her composure, she began
to testify about what had just happened to her. She said that she
was extremely fearful at first, but that when she got under the
water a Beautiful Peace swept through her, and all her fear was
gone. This beautiful peace became joy as she came out of the
water and she praised God for His great comfort, love and mercy.

I believe that God was showing us that we need not fear what He
will put us through. His purpose is to bring us peace, joy,
cleansing and power. He was also showing us that His Church
will go through a baptism. It is a baptism of the Body of Christ.
It is a death and a resurrection. We must trust Him to bring us out
of this watery tomb of death and into the glorious resurrection
power of His Son. We must understand that a harbor is a place
of SAFETY and REFUGE. God’s people who are involved in these
events will need to be safe and protected. The Harbor of the Pearl
of Great Price is the only harbor that will provide refuge and safety,
and ALL who believe will be more than willing to pay the price of
dying to their own desires.

Pearl Harbor is the death and resurrection of the Body of Christ,
being prepared to do His work in His way, with His heart. It is the
final separation of David from Saul – the David Church being
purified and separated from the Saul Church.

It is the final AWAKENING blast of the trumpet of God to rouse His
people for battle. It is the judgment that begins with the house of
the Lord. It is the refining fire that separates the gold from the
dross. It will be preceded by the Lord dealing with His true people
to both survive and desire this final preparation for battle. It is the
promise of unmatched power and purity: power over sin, power over
the enemy, power to live a much more virtuous life, and power to
glorify our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ by the power of
the Holy Spirit. Even now, God is dealing with those in the
David Church even as God dealt with David. Whenever David
would start to fall asleep to God’s purity and purpose, the Lord
would abruptly DEAL with David to AWAKEN him. God did not
waste this kind of effort on Saul because Saul CHOSE to be
asleep to God and His desires.

Pearl Harbor is a warning of betrayal and disaster. The Church in
the past has gone through many Pearl Harbors of betrayal and
disaster. Jesus was betrayed and killed and rose again. English
Puritans experienced Pearl Harbor in the early 17th century and
survived because they could not obey the law that the Church of
England tried to force them to obey. They fled England and
eventually sailed to the New World, where they laid the spiritual
foundation for what eventually became one of the greatest revivals
in the history of the world. John Bunyan, wrote Pilgrim’s Progress
at the bottom of the harbor as he was betrayed by his own
country and thrown in jail for not attending the services of the
Church of England and for preaching in a way that did not conform
to this church’s liturgy. Had he given in and done that which they
asked he could have been a free man. But for conscience’ sake he
chose not to do so. Because of this uncompromising obedience to
the Scriptures and to God Himself, he was able to rise to the
highest place in the history of Christian literature. Today he still
blesses us with the fruit of that resurrection power.

To those who are not awake and prepared, Pearl Harbor will come
suddenly and tragically, as a thief in the night, and they will be swept
away to Great Deception. To those who are more open to the will
of God than they are to pleasing religious men, it will be an expected
ordeal, a call to arms, and a prelude to great victory. The initial
stages will be the harbinger of the greatest move of God in history:
the greatest Revival and the greatest manifestation of Christian
Unity that the world has ever known.
