Summary of Principalities and Strongholds that will Bow to Jesus Tonight in Detroit | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 1 –

Summary of Principalities and Strongholds that will Bow to Jesus Tonight in Detroit

This is a summary of the revelations of Principalities and Strongholds in Detroit that God has given me and my wife through dreams, interpretations, our testimony, and the Word of God. We will be sharing the testimony in our upcoming book.

A local Bishop asked me to send them to him because God had shown him something similar about 5 points of repentance that were needed in the church. So I listed them in a nice pretty outline, with some links to teachings on this blog about them. It was deep, I actually sent them on October 31, which happened to be the same day Martin Luther posted his 95 theses for the Reformation. I did’nt even know that at first. Now you get to see the outline!

These are things that we have been repenting about at DaHOP (Detroit Area House of Prayer).  Our basic premise is Matthew 16 and Matthew 18. The Church already has All the Authority. “If it’s bound, the Church bound it. If it’s loosed, the Church loosed it.” When our obedience is fulfilled, God can revenge all disobedience (2 Corinthians 10). Therefore, we must repent and allow God’s word to change our minds if we want to see change, because it’s mostly our fault (Daniel 9, iRepent). We must repent from:

  1. Tolerating Jezebel– Toleration of Compromise, Spiritual Fornication, Teaching Idolatry
    1. Music and Ministry that mixes, and partners with the World (fornication). Christian musicians and singers and preachers that partner with the world usually end up in spiritual or natural fornication or adultery, or divorced. The natural is just a reflection of what they’ve already done spiritually.
    2. Music and Ministry that copies and follows the World (teaching God’s servants to eat food that has been sacrificed to idols). The best way to teach is by example. If our singers, rappers, and musicians copy and remix with the world, they pollute the whole church.
    3. Detroit has been the prototype city for allowing our Levitical sons and daughters to be seduced by Jezebel instead of giving God pure worship. From mammon and politically focused preachers to our compromising singers, we let God’s Levites make music about money and adultery instead of worshipping Him.
    4. There is a famous Detroit pastor who sang, sold his sermons, charged exorbitant fees to speak, had several adulteries, broken marriages (apostasy is divorce), and had a baby by a 13 year old in his own congregation. He encouraged his daughter to mix with the world and sing soul music for money. All this was done in the 1930s and 1940s, and we tolerated it – even celebrated this. Now we have generations that worship talent instead of God, so they are easily deceived.
    5. Afterwards, Motown became the prototype record label to all the labels that exist now. Their first hit song was “Money, That’s what I want.” Their second was “Gotta Shop Around.” Idolatry and Adultery. Most of their musicians and singers were children from the Church. Even the Beatles first hit song was a Motown song (Money, That’s What I Want). The negative and positive influence of Detroit on the world is mind-boggling.
    6. Even some of our gospel music copies and steals from the world – rejecting God’s creativity. We think it reaches more people, but according to Jesus – Jezebel’s doctrine is the depths of satan.
    7. There are serious repercussions to tolerating Jezebel, some of the most serious repercussions in the 7 letters to the Churches Revelations 2-3.
    8. Lustful looks among men, Sexual Dress among women
    9. Jezebel Exposed (in the Church)
  2. Judas’s Pragmatism– Betraying the Will and Purpose of God by following our own Mind and doing “What Works”
    1. The Detroit region is a stronghold for pragmatism. The industrial mentality can become “pragmatic” which is an extreme version of practicality. Henry Ford was known to be very practical, and influenced by pragmatism. Obviously, practical thinking can be used for good. However, pragmatism as a philosophy can be very evil. Henry Ford was known to be anti-Semetic. We do not know if his pragmatic way of thinking was the cause of his anti-Semetism.
    2. “Enemies of the cross, mind earthly things” – Philippians 2. Practical thinking that is not rooted in obedience to God’s will is pragmatism and self-worshipping disobedience. Earthly mindedness leads to satan entering in your mind. Jesus called both Judas and Peter satan when they exhibited earthly mindedness.
    3. Judas was earthly minded. God got His will done anyway, but “woe to him that betrays the Son of man.” We betray the purpose of our single lives, our families, our ministries, our churches when we put our will to do what we think will work above the scripturally stated will of God for each ministry.
    4. We Are Responsible for Abortion (The Judas Kiss). Racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger got family planning and birth control accepted in the church for “pragmatic” reasons nearly 40 years before abortion was legalized. She had genocide in her philosophies, but she didn’t say it outright. In the name of women’s health, contraception, and family limitation, she convinced us that children were a loss, not a profit; we should limit our families to what we think we can afford pragmatically. Her motto in her publication – Woman Rebel was “No Gods, No Masters.” We let her in the church and loosed it with our own authority.
    5. Contrary to popular belief, Margaret Sanger was NOT pro-abortion, she was against abortion, and she promoted birth control and family limitation. The anointing of motherhood is the only thing that stops the spirit of abortion which comes from family limitation. The root of abortion is not a law, it’s a mindset of pragmatism related to family.
    6. Some of us lose the anointing for increase because we purposefully limit God’s increase of godly seed. Earthly mindedness makes us think backwards. Purpose creates income, income doesn’t create purpose.
    7. We can’t point at Democrats, or Republicans, Obama, or Perry/Cain/Ron Paul to end abortion when we have all the authority. We are above them. Get birth control and family planning out of the church and abortion falls in the government, guaranteed.
  3. Dog-tongues and Wolfpacks– Using Our tongues against our brothers, Ministries who’s purpose is to tear down and steal from other ministries
    1. Using our tongues like dogs. Speaking negatively about other people, other ministries, other races, other churches.
    2. In many churches, every sermon has a “diss” of someone elses ministry in it. “That big church” “That small church” “That Baptist dollar” “Those Holy rollers”. “White people”
    3. We have authority over the atmosphere in our city… so Why is our city so violent? How is gang warfare any different from using our tongues against other churches? Our mouths and especially our pulpits create atmosphere.
    4. Destroying Dog-tongues and Wolfpacks. We need to create a culture of thanksgiving, blessing, honor, and intercession for people made in the image of God.
  4. Dead Men’s Bones and Hypocrites– Worshipping Traditions and Dead Men instead of following the Holy Ghost
    1. Resisting the Holy Ghost instead of at least supporting the new things that God Sovereignly does in each generation. Traditions make the Word of God void of power. In the past Detroit has been one of the most tradition – loving cities.
    2. We need to honor the old, and support the new. Both the New Wine and the Old wine can be preserved.
    3. Return the hearts of the Fathers to the Children, and the Hearts of the Children to the Fathers.
    4. Dead Men’s Bones and Hypocrites – It affects the legacy of the next generation. We destroy our children spiritually when we don’t allow them to create new wineskins for God’s new wine to flow in.
  5. Division and Thieves: racial division and denominational division, not being a house of prayer for all nations.
    1. We need to stop being the world’s best example of racial division on every Sunday. It’s loosed in the world because it’s loosed in the Church. We need desegregation in the Church.
    2. Being a place where thieves can hide, instead of a house of prayer for every ethnic group. Our di-vision makes our vision smaller, and therefore we don’t feel the need to pray night and day for all nations.
    3. This is also related to Judas and Jezebel, because it has to do with the purpose of God for the Church, and also the Music Ministry. If thieves steal the house of prayer from the Church, it’s a den of thieves. If Levites can’t or won’t be employed to worship God day & night, Jezebel and Judas have victory over them and steals their calling.
    4. Real Unity – One Mind on Jesus and Mouth on Christ
    5. The House of Prayer for every nation requires unity, regionally and racially.
    6. A House of Prayer for Every Ethnos
    7. Dividing ourselves from each other instead of finding agreement in our different roles.
  6. *Bonus* Babylon Business Principles in the Kingdom of God: brand warfare, usury, false balances, manipulation, slavery, witchcraft (pharmakia)
    1. Building our brands over being concerned with people.
    2. Putting profit before truth.
    3. Defrauding each other to the point where we need lawyers to judge.
    4. Embracing usury and debt, enslaving Gods’ people.
    5. Not keeping communication and transactions in simplicity (Romans 12).
    6. The Fear of the Lord is the Key to Economic Development.
    7. Whiskey River?
    8. Spiritual Sharecropping.
    9. This one is a bonus, because originally I didn’t have it as an iRepent event. I saw it as a Christian business problem more than a church problem. But I included it here because I heard a local presentation – on how Industrial Sharecropping effectually continued some to the basic tenets of slavery in Detroit until the 1980s – that enlightened me to the possibility of spiritual sharecropping.
    10. The church has all authority, so if it’s loosed, it’s because we loosed it. If slavery lasted until the 1980’s here, then the Church here was responsible. We may need repentance in some of these areas of our business principles.

Where Sin Did Abound, May Grace Much More Abound! We believe that when these false heads and spiritual strongholds are repented of, chopped off, and destroyed, The Body will be able to put our full focus on Jesus Christ, the Beautiful One.

This has been a tough journey, so I feel like saying something really dramatic here… but I’ll just drop the mic and say “Amen.”

On Adultery and Hypocrisy in Christian Artists and Leaders

On Adultery and Hypocrisy in Christian Artists and Leaders

As long as the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ has been in existence, there have been false converts, weak brethren, false apostles, as well as honest believers that make mistakes. We all have been sinners at one time, and we still fight against sin.

There are plenty of pastors with children by different women in “their” congregation, and plenty of Christian artists that don’t live what they sing.

Even King David himself slept with his neighbor’s wife, and then killed her husband. However, God had mercy on Him, because David confessed and forsook his sin. Even then, David reaped exactly what he sowed. His own daughter was raped by his own son, then one of his sons killed the other… Then the son that killed the other son tried to kill him and takeover the kingdom! And his baby died. David had a brutal family life because of what he allowed into his family (2nd Samuel).

God is merciful and he will forgive you personally… (David was still considered  righteous, and a man after God’s own heart, because of his repentant heart and faith in God’s mercy) but you will still reap what you sow! That’s an Immutable Spiritual Law.

7: Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8: For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Galatians 6

Spirtual Law #2 – Confession and Exposure

Another scriptural promise that we should all be aware of is this: Whatever is done in secret will be seen in the light…

Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
2: For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.
3: Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

Luke 12:1

You CANNOT HIDE ANYTHING! It’s a spiritual principle! All sin is the result of believing a lie. One of the biggest and simplest lies satan tells you is that you are powerful enough to keep sin a secret. Its IMPOSSIBLE. The longer you delay confession the worse it gets for you.

This is why you must confess your sins. The bible says whoso hides their sins will not prosper or be successful at it or anything else… But whoso confess and forsakes shall have MERCY.

13: He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

Proverbs 28

This is why I personally try to catch my sins in the thought stage, before they turn into words and actions. I know that God isn’t just on the outside of me, He’s inside of me looking at the video screen playing in my mind! If I notice myself lusting, or even cursing or saying non-blessings in my head, I’ll confess it to God while its still in my head. Otherwise, I know that I will reap what I sow, and I will not be able to hide it. It will be shouted from the rooftops and airwaves. Another benefit of doing this is that it builds intimacy, closeness and openness with God.

Ministry and Music

Do we throw away the Psalms because David sinned? No. Even the chapters before Psalms 51 are still scripture.

Do we throw away Proverbs because Solomon didn’t obey them? No.

Its the same thing with Christian music… If its Word-based, then its anointed by God. The Word of God is anointed. It’s our job to obey it and live it.

I always judge music by the lyrics. If I hear about a Christian artist that has sinned, I simply pray that they are restored, and have peace and righteousness in their life. Yes, I do get disappointed… but that doesn’t mean their music was ungodly.

BREAKING NEWS: UPDATED WITH NEW REVELATION and a Behind The Scenes Look at How even some SCRIPTURAL MUSIC is Rooted in Idolatry.

Non Christians LOVE to see bold saints fall into sin, and they love to call them hypocrites, because they think it gives them an excuse not to love or believe in God at all.

BUT when judgment day comes, everyone will stand before God and be judged by God, and their own conscience will give witness that they are wicked without Christ’s mercy. There will be no excuses except the grace and mercy of Christ.

Instead of scoffing and laughing at Christians, professional sinners should tremble. Judgement only begins in the house of God (1 Peter), it doesn’t end there! When non-Christians see believers being exposed, they should not be haughty… They should actually fear God, and be careful to repent, because that means judgment is coming even harder and quicker for them! God always purifies HIS people first before the ungodly get theirs.

17: For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
18: And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

1 Peter 4

Hypocrite – definition

1. one who answers, an interpreter

2. an actor, stage player

3. a dissembler, pretender, hypocrite

A hypocrite is simply a person who is not true. They are actors in real life. Remember that Jesus said in Luke 12:1, the doctrine of the Pharisees was hypocrisy. They were actors and professional pretenders. They were pretending in real life!

Jesus promised that if you are a pretender… the truth will definitely come out. It’s a spiritual law.

Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
2: For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.
3: Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

Luke 12:1

So here is the option: you will either confess the sins, or it will be shouted from the housetops. Either way, there is nothing hidden. Exposure is inevitable! There is no need to gossip or spread rumors, because eventually, it will be heard in the light!

Judgmental?

Some people like to say that if you preach the Truth, you are being judgmental… and somehow that causes you to be a hypocrite. Please read this scripture aloud.

9: Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10: Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11: And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

1 Cor 7

Well, is reading that scripture aloud judgmental? The issue is not the whether we can speak the Truth or not; the issue is: are we living the Truth, or being actors in real life?

Now on to solutions…

How not to Be an Actor in the Kingdom

Avoid Pride in Real Practical Ways

Sin gets in under pride… We put artists and popular ministers on a pedestal, when they should be equal (not just theologically, but practically). They don’t have good accountability and fellowship. They are put on a pedestal and cannot have shoulder to shoulder fellowship with saints, because they are on a higher plane… and always by themselves on a plane. Keep a true Kingdom lifestyle of humility, fellowship, and brotherhood. Make yourself equal to the “lowest” brother in you know in a practical way.

Don’t Be Contentious

One evidence of pride is contention (Proverbs 13:10). A minister or artist is beefing with someone, or in strife, and that’s how satan gets in. Satan also gets into marriages by pride, then contention. If you feel like you are in a contentious fight with someone, humble yourself and let them win. Speak the truth and your belief and move on.

Travel with Your Wife

We need to do the simple things like travel with our wives. Peter and the other apostles who were married (1 Corinthians 9:5) did this. If you don’t have a wife, bring your teammate. The new Testament is full of lists of Paul’s teammates; most of them were NOT his peons, slaves, or armor-bearers… most were his co-laborers, co-apostles, and brothers. Jesus didn’t even start His ministry until he had a team. Ministry is TEAMwork!

Fast Weekly

People don’t really obey Christ Jesus’s command to fast that much. If you are heavy in ministry you need to be heavy in fasting. Even if you’re not doing a lot of preaching you should be fasting regularly as a part of the kingdom lifestyle as a regular believer. (Matthew 6, Matthew 9:15). Fasting is brutal for your flesh, it helps keep you disciplined, and it just simply multiplies the grace on your life.

Get Off the Stage
Go house-to-house, not just stage to stage. Teach your sphere of influence to live the lifestyle of the Kingdom of God. Teach whatever scriptures you learn on a weekly basis. Do bible studies. Throw house parties. Host prayer meetings. People need brotherhood, house-to-house fellowship, and lifestyle discipleship, not just stage-to-stage-to-stage-to-stage ministry. Those days are officially over. Stage-to-stage ministry alone leaves people empty and immature as professional spectators. And by itself, it keeps you an actor on a stage.

Keep it 50/50
Match your ministry-to-others time with your ministry-to-the-Lord time. If you are hosting a 3 hour event, first minister to the Lord in your closet for 3 hours. You can call it “50/50.” This will keep you balanced.

This world is corrupt, our sin nature is real, and the devil is on the attack. But our Faith is the Victory that overcomes the World! In the Blood of Jesus Victory is guaranteed.

More Solutions

One of best books I’ve ever read on adultery, fornication, and marriage is “Why Some Christians Commit Adultery.” It has been recently republished as “Why Good People Mess Up” This book is detailed, deep, but surprisingly quick, easy to read, and full of real life stories.  It talks about spiritual defilement, voyeurism, masturbation, psychological adultery, transference of spirits, dating, cultural strongholds, and much more! Order it here.
