3 on 3: kingdom bait vs demonic error

3 on 3: kingdom bait vs demonic error

When you search the Scriptures, you will find that there are three things that Jesus Christ and the apostles used as bait for the gospel of the kingdom of God:

1. Hardcore and Prophetic Repentance from sin and Teaching the Kingdom
2. Power, Supernatural Healing, and Miracles
3. Acts of Mercy: Compassion and Kindness

If you keep searching, you will also see three main sources of spiritual error and counterfeit evangelism, which are also the three main doctrines that Jesus hates in Revelations 2 and 3:

1. The doctrine of Jezebel: which is spiritual fornication, spiritual adultery and idolatry in partnership with the wicked in a ministry.
2. The doctrine of Balaam: which is bait and switch trickery, partnering with ungodly organizations and partnering with unbelievers, corrupting the church as you preach the gospel.
3. The doctrine of the Nicolaitans: which is using false authority and carnally based power to corrupt the church and force it into error and spiritual adultery and mixture with ungodliness.

When you see a ministry that lacks the Holy Ghost and is devoid of the spiritual grace and anointing to use the first 3 strategies, they will often resort to the second 3 errors.

Then they will claim that they are still spreading the gospel of the kingdom. Do not be deceived, they are only spreading error!

Ask your Father in heaven to enrich you with the power of the Holy Spirit, so that you may spread His kingdom using the strategies of Jesus Christ, not the demonic errors that the devil introduces to deceive and corrupt.

Father, send forth laborers enriched and endowed with the power of the Holy Ghost and the grace of Jesus Christ. Amen.

JESUS DID NOT DIE AND RESURRECT TO GET INTO YOUR MIX

Jesus is LORD. When you present him as an option, or just another voice among many, you are Denying the LORD! Jesus did not come to endorse syncretism, or get in the mix – He is The KING!

REACHING THE CULTURE? Or TRANSLATING THE GOSPEL and Creating a HOLY CULTURE?

This video is beautiful, it illustrates the scriptural difference between compromising with the culture and translating the WORD into the language of the culture. Trust me you will not be disappointed by the end of this video. It almost brought tears to my eyes.

Can’t say I agree with everything but the overall point is what I’ve been teaching and living for 15 years –

Kingdom OVER Culture:

That if we see hip hop (or any cultural expression) as a language to translate the gospel of Jesus Kingdom into, and create holy lifestyles – we will be fruitful.

If we see hip hop (or any other cultural expression) as a culture to submit to or join in and follow after just to reach people, we are in spiritual failure.

Its not about how you express or what you call it, its about what you express (SCRIPTURES), and who you express it with (THE HOLY SPIRIT)!

This amazing video message shows you a few of the scriptures that support this DIFFERENTIATION, and a real life example of the DIFFERENCE. Trust me this is amazing, especially the Papua New Guinea testimony.

WARNING: Gospel Witchcraft Music and Christian Sorcerer Ministry – How Not to Be a Religious Whore – Week of Swords And Axes Day 4

WARNING: Gospel Witchcraft Music and Christian Sorcerer Ministry
aka How Not to Be a Religious Whore
Sometimes we think of witchcraft and sorcery as something that goes with pointy hats from 2 centuries ago, or chicken blood voodoo in 3rd world countries. We’re too civilized for that right? It’s just Harry Potter books right?

First, what is a craft?

Definition of CRAFT

1: skill in planning, making, or executing : dexterity

2 a : an occupation or trade requiring manual dexterity or artistic skill <the carpenter’s craft> <the craft of writing plays> <crafts such as pottery, carpentry, and sewing>

A craft is a natural skill.

 

So what is witchcraft?

Definition of WITCHCRAFT

1 a : the use of sorcery or magic b : communication with the devil or with a familiar spirit

So what turns a craft into witchcraft? Here’s a working, simple definition for witchcraft:

Witchcraft is a natural craft that is used to reach spiritual levels in an evil way.

It could be making music which alters people’s spiritual state. It could be building a tower to reach heaven (Genesis 11). It could be making potions… It could be concocting drugs to change people’s mental state… It could be concocting strong drink specifically to get people drunk. (There’s a reason they are called ‘wine & spirits).

Sorcery
Definition of SORCERY

1: the use of power gained from the assistance or control of evil spirits especially for divining

So, sorcery is using the power from those evil spirits to produce results in the earth, by using special abilities, insights, and foresight from demons. If you research Hitler, you’ll see that he connected with demons to make his decisions. Many Presidents and Business leaders have been known to consult with familiar spirits. Many music artists do as well. There’s lots of information out there about that. Do some research

Did you ever wonder why there are so much legal drugs, illegal drugs, and alcohol involved in the music industry? It’s because they have to alter their state and connect with spirits to get the insight they need for hit songs and results. Many secular artists are sorcerers, and they don’t even know it, but many do.

Just like Christians have to continually be filled with the Holy Ghost by praying and singing Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual songs… people connecting with evil spirits are often drunk with wine or altered with drugs. You can look at the events surrounding Whitney Houston’s death, Elvis Presley’s death, Michael Jackson’s death, Amy Winehouse’s death, Heath Ledger, Marilyn Monroe, Chris Farley, the list could go on. All of these deaths were related to drugs and alcohol.

 

How Real Christian Ministers Respond to Witchcraft and Sorcery

A woman of divination

Let’s look at what happened when people of sorcery and witchcraft wanted to follow and endorse Paul the Apostle:

Acts 16:16 And it came to pass , as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying : 17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. 18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved , turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. 19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone , they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers, 20 And brought them to the magistrates, saying , These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city, 21 And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans. 22 And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them.

This sorceress woman followed Paul, declaring that he had ‘a’ way of salvation. That’s a sweet deal, right? You’d love to have an influential and vocally talented sinner following you around, endorsing your ministry? Most Christians would flip at this opportunity.

Let’s look at what she was really saying…

“way” definition – greek “hodos”

  1. a way
  2. a travelled way, road
  3. a travellers way, journey, travelling
  4. metaph.
  5. a course of conduct
  6. a way (i.e. manner) of thinking, feeling, deciding

So in other words the woman was saying that they had “a” way of salvation. It was “among many options”… I’ll put Paul on my mix-tape in the middle of all the other things I say… I need to build a relationship with his market. I’ll interview him on my talk show between all the other religions and idolatries.

How did Paul respond? He did not try to capitalize on her ability, nor did he see any advantage in the money she was able to bring in. Paul was annoyed, vexed, and cast a demon out of her. When her handlers who were making money off of her saw that her demonic power was gone and that their hope for making money was gone, they decided to attack Paul.

Simon the former Sorcerer
Let’s look at the Simon the former sorcerer and how Peter responded to his desire to make money off the Holy Spirit.

Acts 8:18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, 19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. 20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. 21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. 22 Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. 23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. 24 Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.

He wanted the opportunity to give the Holy Ghost to who he laid hands on to. He wanted that “positive message” on His label. He was a former sorcerer (Acts 8), so he had insight that having that type of power could help his business. Did Peter say, “Sweet! You were the biggest sorcerer in this region, I’m an apostle. You have the influence – I need to preach the gospel to people. Let’s hook up and get it done! Where do I sign?”

No, he rebuked that guy so hard that Simon sincerely asked Peter to pray for him that he didn’t burn in hell for vocalizing those wicked thoughts. That’s one of the hardest rebuke in history! Peter’s response is totally different from Christians of today.

Peter rebuked him for thinking that the gift of God, the Holy Spirit, could be reduced to the value of money. This very thought Peter said, showed that Simon was in the gall of bitterness and in the bond of iniquity.

Now let’s look what happens when the real gospel is preached.

The Fruits of Repentance from Witchcraft in the Book of Acts

Acts 19: 18 And many that believed came, and confessed , and shewed their deeds. 19 Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. 20 So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.

When the real gospel is preached, people will gather to burn their witchcraft. They don’t celebrate it, remix it, reuse it, etc. They definitely don’t augment their witchcraft income with some positive message income. The kingdom of God is not about getting a message out and making some money. It’s about teaching people how to obey and worship God through Jesus Christ. It’s not just in word, but in power.

We have fallen so far away from the heart of God and the purposes of Christ.

Whores and Harlots

So what if I have my wife prostitute her body on 8 mile & Woodward to reach people & bring some income to the family, just like Jesus does with His Church when they partner with the world, copy, & compromise in spiritual adultery to “reach the lost.” Actually no I won’t do that, because Jesus doesn’t do that. He wants love and repentance, not whores reaching more whores “at any cost”.

When we prostitute our gifts and mix with the world and their witchcraft, we are the spiritual whores.

But Jesus ate with sinners? Please, stop with that old lame and tired cliché excuse, it hasn’t worked for the past 40 years. #1, Jesus preached repentance and spiritual violence. So sinners came to him in repentance to follow Him, not to team up with him and make something happen for their witchcraft business (see Jesus Christ ministry techniques). #2, you have to understand that holiness equals God’s purpose. I was going to talk about purpose and holiness here, but nevermind, # 1 is enough for now because repentance is the ground floor of the Kingdom of God.

But what about the woman caught in adultery? The Pharisees stoned her, but Jesus forgave her, you are a Pharisee! No, you need to stop using that woman to justify your sin and wickedness. That woman was a repentant person. We are not stoning anyone physically. We are simply bringing an axe to the spiritual roots of trees and ministries that promote sin, scandal and foolishness. We are calling for repentance and asking responsible and supposed ministers of the gospel to say and do something different. Put the axe to your tree and cut out the roots of wickedness, so that harlot ministry doesn’t come thru your mouth anymore.

When someone repents of their sins they are no longer wicked. The woman who committed adultery was exposed, and she obviously repented or Jesus would not have forgiven her sins. With what is going today, people are making music and partnering in ministry with UNREPENTANT sinners! If the unsaved artists that Christian artists partner with were repentant…THEY WOULD CHANGE! True repentance brings a change in lifestyle and righteous fruit.

When it came time for the Pharisees to repent for what they did while Jesus was “blogging” on the ground, they just walked away instead. The Pharisees are the only group of people in the gospels that did not respond to the preaching of John the Baptist or Jesus Christ by changing what they said and did.

So in reality, the people that respond to the repentance message with accusations or apathy instead of repentance are the real and actual ‘pharisee’ problem. They hated John the Baptist and crucified Jesus so that they could keep the power and the money and the influence. They are still doing the same thing today.

But, but, but… Christian plumbers don’t have to write Jesus on their pipes? It’s a job. Can’t I just practice my art?  Didn’t you read that CS Lewis book? There was so much symbolism in Lord of the Rings.

If you want to lay pipes, lay pipes. If you want to use your craft, or your art to connect to people spiritually, then you need to worship, declare, and glorify God.

If you want to use your plumbing, meat butchering, music playing, singing, speaking, bricklaying, masonry “craft” to make spiritual connections… but you don’t want to exclusively glorify Jesus and his message of repentance and worship, then go join the Masons with the other sorcerors! Connect with the Illuminati, or some false religion. You can’t have it both ways. You can glorify God in Holiness, but not in whoreliness.

CS Lewis not only didn’t repent from his paganism, he used his pagan, witch and magic based stories to pervert the Word of God. So now we actually think that the Lion, the witch, and the wardrobe is the gospel. Intellectual Holy Spirit avoiding Christians that resist the Holy Ghost but follow Dead Men’s Bones (doctrines of dead men) look up to CS Lewis and use him as an excuse for their avoidance of the Cross and the reproach of Christ. When you are a worshipper of Jesus Christ, you have to embrace the persecution and everything that comes along with Him.

Jezebel Teaches Whores how to be Harlots and Prostitute their Gifts

This is harlotry, witchcraft, the essence of Babylon, and the bible shows us that this type of whore-based ministry comes from the doctrine of Jezebel. Jezebel is explained here, and much more in depth with 2 entire chapters covering Old Testament Jezebel style and New Testament style Jezebel here. So I won’t get too much deeper on that in this message.

But I will say this. Part of the reason we make room for Jezebel in the church is because some have a false evangelical mindset which places the great commission above the great commandment. We put the 2nd commandment – loving and reaching out to people – in front of the 1st commandment – loving God in prayer and the Word, Holiness, and obedience with suffering. There’s nothing wrong with the great commission as long as it’s in order.

This is the Season of Confrontation

I have seen a lot with this Jezebel Spirit of compromise attacking Christian music and ministry. My wife and I wrote a book about it, called Killing Idols for REVIVAL. We finished 80% of it in July 2011. As soon as we finished it, it seemed like all hell broke loose. Concepts that we had already explained in depth with prophetic dreams, interpretations, and scripture teaching in the book started happening in the real world at a much deeper level. Guys that we worked with in the past started signing with secular labels and doing secular mix-tapes. We saw preachers dying, more gospel divorces, scandals, etc. Things really amplified, and we hadn’t even published it yet.

God is really cutting Jezebel’s head off and exposing these blind guides that pollute the body of Christ with spiritual adultery, all in the name of “reaching the lost” really “making money.” My wife prostituting herself could help our family out with the bills, but does Jesus send His wife to whore with the world to help reach souls or fund the Kingdom? According to this false doctrine, the answer is yes. They accept it because they don’t know Jesus’s heart.

God is getting something across to us, and we have to have an ear to hear! If you can’t see the signs of the times – Jezebel is getting her head cut off, Judas is hanging himself, and Balaam is just going to hell.

But you, as a person – can repent from those influences, and GOD will have mercy on you. God is anointing His messengers to bring in the final harvest and 2nd coming of Jesus Christ.

This is the Week of Swords and Axes here at SoSpression blog. Why? God is fighting with big swords, pruning His people with small swords, and taking Axes to the poison filled roots of every wicked tree in His Kingdom.

Day 3: WOE TO THOSE WHO JUSTIFY THE WICKED AND CONDEMN THE JUST

– Read the book Killing Idols For REVIVAL to see more behind the scenes of the Christian Music Industry, with a biblical understading of how to change it.

WOE TO THOSE WHO JUSTIFY THE WICKED AND CONDEMN THE JUST – the HUGE Sword Naming Names, but with Gentleness! – Week of Swords and Axes Day 3

WOE TO THOSE WHO JUSTIFY THE WICKED AND CONDEMN THE JUST

a.k.a. the HUGE Sword God gave Shereena! Naming Names, but with Gentleness.

Proverbs 17:15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.

This makes me want to weep. How much of this do we have going on right now?

What does it mean to justify the wicked?

jus·ti·fy

verb /ˈjəstəˌfī/

  1. Show or prove to be right or reasonable
  • – the person appointed has fully justified our confidence
  1. Be a good reason for
  • – the situation was grave enough to justify further investigation
  1. Declare or make righteous in the sight of God

wick·ed

adjective /ˈwikid/

  1. Evil or morally wrong
  • – a wicked and unscrupulous politician
  1. Intended to or capable of harming someone or something
  • – he should be punished for his wicked driving

When you know the commandments and the word of the Lord, and you tell someone who breaks those commandments and does not keep those words that they are right in what they do, this is an abomination to the Lord.

a·bom·i·na·tion

noun /əˌbäməˈnāSHən/

  1. A thing that causes disgust or hatred
  • – this bill is an abomination to all mankind
  • – concrete abominations masquerading as hotels
  1. A feeling of hatred
  • – their abomination of indulgence

Justifying the wicked is disgusting to God, something He HATES!

Christian Musicians, Artists, and Celebrities that Justify the Wicked

An area where justification of the wicked is extremely prevalent is in Christian music. Christians celebrate ungodly musicians and singers, we even go as far as collaborating and making music with ungodly people. Now, Christian artists and wicked music artists are making music together at an alarming rate, and no one seems to think it is wrong. But, what does God’s word say?

MEDITATE ON THESE SCRIPTURES VERY SLOWLY

Isaiah 5:11-24

11Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! 12And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands.  13Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.  14Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. 15And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled: 16But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.

17Then shall the lambs feed after their manner, and the waste places of the fat ones shall strangers eat. 18Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope: 19That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it! 20Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 22Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: 23Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! 24Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Let’s Take Some More Time to Ponder and Analyze Isaiah 5:11-23

-Strong drink: The mingling of the holy and profane, wine of the world and false wine of the spirit.  (vs. 22)

-Strong men (vs. 22): rich men, mighty in the earth, men with influence, celebrities, men who have a form of godliness.

-They justify the wicked for their own reward (vs. 23): increased influence, money, power, fame, self-promotion.

-Verse 12 specifically addresses music and how it is used in a corrupt way (the harp, tabret, viol). Music is useless unless it glorifies God how He truly is not how we want Him to be. Music without God leads to sin and rebellion if they do not regard the work of God or consider the operation of His hands (vs. 12).

They may regard God with their mouths, but do they regard the work of God which is righteous? No because they are chasing wine early in the morning. Do they consider the work of His hands which is HOLY? No because wine is at their feasts.

We have Christian artists that are mixing strong drink. They put “gospel” songs on raunchy secular mix tapes. They use their influence to promote secular labels, artists and cds. In their eyes they are spreading the message of Christ on a secular mix tape…but if a Christian follower who they market to buys that mix tape, they will hear ONE watered down “gospel” song and TWELVE songs about drugs, sex, and profane living?!

Lecrae puts a song on raunchy secular mixtape by DJ Statik Selekta http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/population-control-bonus-track/id463889619, and promotes a secular Hip Hop event http://missdimplez.com/2012/02/uhsxsw-profile-1-lecrae/

Mali Music signs to Konvict Records with Akon http://allhiphop.com/2011/11/01/akon-signs-gospel-rapper-mali-music-to-konvict-muzik/ (the symbolism in the fact that Akon’s record label is called Konvict, a convict is someone who was convicted and imprisoned for crimes – bondage, and Isaiah 5:13 says “My people are led into captivity…”, is a whole other topic in itself!)

Is this right? WRONG!! This is leading people into spiritual confusion; verse 13 goes on to say “My people are gone into captivity because they have no knowledge”…who has taken them captive? Their enemies have taken them captive. How were they led captive?

Strong drink (false doctrine, mixing wine of the world and wine of the Spirit), music and wine without regard for the work of God (His work is His commandments Exodus 32:12)

Psalms 66:3 Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.

The works of God cause His enemies to submit to HIM. But instead the strong drink, music and ungodly feasting cause God’s people to submit to His enemies (the works of darkness). They do not consider the operation of His hands (the way GOD operates: hating sin, loving holiness, righteous judgements, condemnation of wickedness, and pardoning those who repent of sin, not honoring the sin).

-Verse 13 continues on saying …”and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst”. Wait a minute, if they were feasting and drinking wine in verse 12, why are they hungry (famished) and thirsty in verse 13? Because when you do not regard the work of God or consider the way HE operates, you are led into death. Only the works of God and His operations bring LIFE (satisfying hunger and thirst Isaiah 49:10, John 4:13-14, John 6:27-37, Isaiah 65:13, Revelations 7:16)

-Who is making the wine and mingling the strong drink? This is the strong man, the rich man, the powerful man. When the strong man makes the drink, the multitudes will drink it. This is another reason why many Christian artists are sound at first, while they are gaining followers.

Then once they hit a certain status of fame and riches they switch and start mingling strong drink. The strong man makes the wine, because people will drink deceit from a rich and mighty man because of their status and success. So the strong men run to the mixture, because a strong man wants to make money off of the wicked and their influence. Spiritually, the strong men are prostitutes.

-People love to justify working with darkness and mixing ungodly with Godly by saying “well, Jesus ate with sinners and people got mad at Him too.” Jesus preached repentance to them. Jesus rebuked and prophesied to them, Jesus called them OUT of the darkness they were in. These people did NOT join Jesus in ministry. They were NOT part of His inner circle. He did NOT come into agreement with them in business deals.

He did NOT say let me follow you around and introduce me to your circle so I can show people who I am and maybe they will get saved…HE SAID FOLLOW ME!!! HE SAID IF YOU LOVE ME KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS!!! HE SAID IF YOU DO NO PICK UP YOUR CROSS YOU ARE NOT WORTHY OF ME!! Jesus preached repentance, those who wanted to repent, did it and followed Him. Those who did not repent, Jesus warned his followers to avoid (the rich young ruler, Pharisees, etc.)

When the rich young ruler (Matt. 19:16-24) did not want to GIVE UP his sin and wealth to follow Jesus he turned and went away. Jesus did not follow after him, join in his lifestyle in hopes that one day the rich man would believe, that maybe if I follow him around long enough then He will accept me…Nor did Jesus try to capitalize on the influence or riches of the young man, he was a ruler with great influence and riches. Jesus did NOT try to even use the young man’s status as a way to preach the gospel (which is most Christian’s excuse for mingling).

“Let’s make a deal – you’re rich, I’m Jesus Christ… We can make something happen!”

NO!!! Repent for the kingdom of God is at HAND!

-This will lead you to captivity. Those who justify the wicked, who are entertained with their music and wicked feasts, have no knowledge. Hell is enlarging itself for them.

-It is all a big party! They go down into hell in the midst of their glory, pomp, multitudes and rejoicing (grammys, fans, awards, partying, shopping, etc.) vs. 14.

– Because they desire the reward they receive from justifying the wicked, they try to silence and destroy the just, anyone who stands against them and their sinful system.

– The key issues are justifying the wicked and mixing the wine of the world with the Holy wine of God. And justifying the wicked for personal gain. Either telling them their sin is ok or simply not telling them their sin is wrong and making them feel like their sin is ok for what you stand to gain from it.

 

Isaiah 5

20Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 22Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: 23Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

 

-The passing of Whitney Houston is very sad, but we have to be honest. She did not bear the fruits of righteousness. The BIBLE says you know a tree by its fruit. Now that she is deceased we see so many clips of her singing gospel songs, but where are the clips of her high? Where are the movie clips of her doing sex scenes? Why isn’t any media playing clips of her crudely cursing in her movies?

And all the famous Pastors would rather brag about how close they were to her and say she’s in a better place rather than mourn for her, or use the opportunity to introduce the fear of the Lord and obedience to the gospel to her fans. Instead they were her fans themselves, and used their relationship with her and her status to gain reward for themselves!

TD Jakes justifies Whitney Houston and will make much money on the UNGODLY movie  Sparkle, he made with her. He leads his congregation in justifying her.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcs2qrocEvI

*The remake of Sparkle, a movie that TD Jakes (a Christian “Bishop”) produced, was written by Mara Brock Akil and Directed by her husband Salim Akil (the team who writes blasphemy for BET’s The Game.) They are Muslim, so by “coincidence” – The Game is filled with the blasphemy of Jesus, fake Christianity, using God’s name in vain, and the portrayal illicit sex. The music was done by R. Kelly, who made fornication music for an entire generation.

What is the movie about? A group of singing sisters leaving the church to make it big…Hmmm, I think I smell strong drink. How could a Bishop in the church work to produce a film leading millions into deception and captivity believing He was doing it by the leading of the Holy Ghost? Strong Drink!

-Did you know that the Catholic Church is even reintroducing “indulgences?” An indulgence is literally buying a dead soul’s way into heaven. After someone has passed you can pay money  at and say some prayers and at some point the priest would tell you that this person was now in heaven.

 

WHAT?! They were justifying the wicked for a reward, MONEY. The justification of the wicked for reward by the Christian church is the same as selling indulgences: give me your money, give me the status of your fame and I will tell you God accepts you. I will tell you you are sanctified, I will tell you that you are going to heaven, or “in a better place” when you die.

 

Proverbs 24:24

24He that saith unto the wicked, Thou are righteous; him shall the people curse, nations shall abhor him:

Exodus 23:7

7Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.

Psalm 66 18If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

So in the desire for money, fame, fortune, business deals self-promotion and vanity as representatives of God to the world we may justify the wicked and make them think they are ok. But GOD is NOT justifying them, so we ok the sin, but GOD is the true judge.

Mary Mary

-Refused to repent when they were rebuked on Twitter for attending a Beyonce Concert. These concerts have been known to resemble demon temple worship, with male prostitute-type dancers simulating sex acts. They despise holiness by calling it a “bubble.” So those who refuse to follow idolatry with them are in a “bubble.” Google it to.

Mary Mary openly confess to enjoying secular music and making music with all the wicked musicians they can partner with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wINyjMs_sw This is the doctrine of Jezebel.

Revelation 2:20  20Notwithstanding 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.

21And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

Isaiah 5:12And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands.

We usually avoid “naming names” with this type of message… but this is the week of swords and axes!  The Bible says “them that sin, rebuke openly.” These people are openly promoting this stuff. Private sins get private rebukes. Public sins get public correction. We would love for people to repent so we can take their names out of this post. We Pray For These People and we hope that we as the Body of Christ repent and get mercy from God instead of harden our hearts to go further in encouraging  our hearts in wickedness.

Just as we spent our time, energy, and money promoting the gospel with ministers and artists when they serve Jesus and the gospel in holiness – we give correction and protection when they depart from Jesus, the gospel, and holiness. We are doing this because it is our Responsibility.

John 10:12 (The true shepherd does not leave sheep when they see the wolf coming). The wolf is ravaging the body of Christ right now.

This is the Week of Swords and Axes here at SoSpression blog. Why? God is fighting with big swords, pruning His people with small swords, and taking Axes to the poison filled roots of every wicked tree in His Kingdom.
