If You are Living your Best Life Now you are going to Hell – Bringing Biblical Swords – Week Of Swords And Axes Day #2

If You are Living your Best Life Now you are going to Hell – Week Of Swords And Axes Day #2

If you are living your best life now you are going to hell. You might even go to church but be a false convert. Real Christ followers find spiritual identity in his death and rise when He comes back.

Colossians 3 1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear , then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

What About the Abundant Life?

Some people would say John 10:10… doesn’t Jesus come that we might have life, and more abundant?

John. 10:10 is surrounded in the context of scriptures that say Jesus is the door, the shepherd, the way, etc. In that same context He talks about the world rejecting Him, so they reject His true followers too. He says that the servants won’t be greater than their master. He also said this right before He went to the “Cross.” So it’s obvious that He wasn’t talking about the type of best life that is only positive, non-confrontational, and filled with earthly success and prestige in the eyes of man.

The things that men respect the most, God actually hates the most. You could be the richest, most influential, powerful person in the eyes of men, and everything you stand for would be an abomination to God.

Luke 16:15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

What’s the difference between a true believer and a false convert? A true believers heart is in Col 3:1-4 because they are actually following Jesus, and holiness, and taking the persecution and suffering that comes with it.

Find Your Identity in Jesus Christ, His message, His Life, His Cross, His resurrection! Do and say the hard things that it takes to follow Him.

False converts have no root, therefore when their earthly ‘best life’ is not happening, tribulation causes them to fall away from the faith. You can see this in the parable of the sower as well as in Matthew 24.

Mark 4 16 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness; 17 And have no root in themselves,and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended . 18 And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, 19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts ofother things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

Tribulation and persecution causes the true believer to go deeper in God and bear even more fruit. Do you know how many former ‘on fire’ false converts are no longer even walking with God? Do you know how many people go to church for 2 hours on Sunday, but worship demons through alcoholism, entertainment, and idolatry the rest of the week? Get ready for more, because as the last days continue, persecution will increase and false converts will fall away by the thousands. You can call them ‘false converts’, or ‘believers who fall away from the faith’; but the results are the same.

Mark 24:10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,13 but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.

The True Messenger     

That’s why the true messenger doesn’t just ‘sow seed’ He also ‘breaks up the fallow ground’ by preaching repentance and spiritual violence. He also rips out the thorns of the deceitfulness of riches and the care of the world, and lust for other things. He tears down, destroys, uproots, and throws down (Jeremiah 1:10). The role of the false prophet is to skip those hard steps, but then step in as a ‘visionary leader’ to ‘build and plant’ with only positive messages so that everyone, including false converts can live their best life ‘now.’

Jeremiah 4 3 For thus saith the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns.

Yeah I feel you! Don’t you hate those “Prosperity” preachers?

NO I don’t. Prosperity is obviously in the bible in 3 John 2. I wish above all things that you would prosper and be in health. Some people may think I’m taking sides on an issue, but we don’t take sides – we take swords. These are God’s swords, not mine.

The Importance of Bringing Biblical Swords

The dumbest and most counterproductive thing you can do in the Kingdom of God is to try to correct a scripture. And it’s even dumber when you try to correct a biblical message, and then take your identity from a dead man’s bones like “John Calvin,” “John Wesley” “Jonathan Edwards” etc…

“Oooh, I hate that Word of Faith stuff…”

What are you?

“I’m Methodist.”

Huh? Word of Faith is in Romans 10. Reformed is in the dictionary. Where is Luther? He’s in the grave. Don’t get me wrong, I have plenty of respect for Calvin, Luther, Seymour, Ravenhill, Hagin, etc. It’s beneficial to know Christian history, and I’m not trying to “dog” people in those organizations. Trust me I’ve read so much on great teachers and revivalists of the past that did great things with God. But it’s really counterproductive to try to correct scripture with non-scripture. Dead Men, no matter how great they were, are in the grave. Jesus is alive, and His Word is alive.

If you want to bring correction, there is plenty of Biblical language that can be used to bring correction. You could talk about covetousness, Babylon business, wolves in sheep’s clothing, the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, the Judas Kiss, Balaam’s error, the doctrine of Jezebel; a bunch of stuff is in there. While you are quoting dead men you could be getting more revelation from the Scriptures, where the Dead Man Rose Up from the Grave.

We have entire chapters of teaching and supernatural revelation on all this stuff in Killing Idols for REVIVAL… but real quick – let’s bring out a Biblical example for correction.

The Judas Role

“But don’t you think some people are called to preach hard stuff and repentance, and some people are called to make a lot of money, and only preach positive stuff. That’s my role in the Body of Christ.”

Well first of all, Repentance and Spiritual Violence is the ground floor of the Kingdom of God. Not only did Jesus Christ get baptized by John the Baptist, “to fulfill all righteousness”, (which represented total agreement and submission to his message)… He also immediately went into the wilderness for 40 days of fasting (imitating John the Baptist)… then He came back and preached the same message that John the Baptist preached – not by coincidence. I talk more about this in “Jesus Christ Ministry Techniques.” Jesus took the next steps of teaching multitudes, healing, and casting out demons, and doing miracles. But he started on the ground floor of spiritual violence and preaching repentance.

The whole idea that this represents is bad. There are so many false converts and false prophet ministries who think they are better than a true messenger because they have more money and are more positive. They think that’s their role – but really they are playing the role of Judas (who was in charge of Jesus’s money and claimed to want to give to the poor too). When crunch time came, Judas was on the other team, doing what he thought was right in his own mind instead of obedience to suffering with Christ.

This has really sad results. Just in the past few years so many people have fallen away from the faith… even those who still go to church. But the good news is that the harvest is plentiful! Some pastors will even tell you that many of their members aren’t saved. So there is much opportunity to teach people about the Kingdom of God. It’s time for a clear message of specific repentance!

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.

Why the Swords and Axes? | Week of Swords and Axes Day #1

Why Swords and Axes?   |  Week of Swords and Axes Day #1

Why the Sword SoS? Why All the Axes? I thought you were a nice guy…

I’m still a nice guy. I’m the same SoS that I always was… To be honest, this was all just led by The Ghost. Isaiah 49:1-4 came to my heart a few days ago and I’ve been thinking about it for a week or so. One day I put a little post about something totally different on my facebook page and it just kept flowing. The next day my wife woke up early; flowing with a crazy powerful message for like 5 hours straight. She’s pregnant so she NEVER wakes up early. Her message is actually the biggest axe of the week! The next day I was woken around 4 am with another really hardcore message. This was blowing our minds, so I decided that this week would be the “Week of Swords and Axes.” Then a friend sent me another crazy sharp swordified video message that the Lord gave them. We couldn’t stop it, so we just decided to flow with it.

BIG SWORDS ARE FOR FIGHTING

Isaiah 49: 2 And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me

We don’t wrestle with flesh and blood. We fight with Spiritual principalities, powers, and false ideologies that they promote from the heavenly realm (Ephesians 6). When we pray and speak the Word angels fight. Obviously there are some big battles going on and God needs someone to speak those swords to get these battles won.

 

SMALL SWORDS ARE FOR PRUNING

John 15 1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit He taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

A plant has branches, leaves and fruit. If our lives are plants, our results are our fruit. When we produce good fruit of love and faithful discipleship for Jesus Christ, it’s a good thing. Why do we still need swords? Because God wants to produce MORE fruit… So He cuts off the branches in your life that aren’t bearing fruit, because they are taking energy and resources from the branches that are bearing fruit. God cuts off diseased branches that produce rotten fruit, spoiled fruit, fruit that is too small, or no fruit at all.

If the tree doesn’t produce any fruit at all, He burns it.

The sword represents God’s pruning knives, from the mouth of a messenger who will cut off wicked things in our life with the Word of God. It’s necessary for everyone. Swords don’t mean you are doing bad. When God gives you swords, it means you are doing well, and God wants even MORE out of you!

 

AXES GO TO THE ROOT

Matthew 3 10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down , and cast into the fire.

The axe is a little different from the sword. The sword is to trim leaves and branches, outside things. The Sword is for people that are doing well. The axe is for people that are doing evil, and aren’t producing good fruit at all.

Continuing our tree analogy, the tree draws sustenance from under the ground through roots. Satan comes from under the ground in hell and introduces poisonous influences and diseases. It goes throughout the tree through the roots. It permeates through to all the branches, all the leaves, and all the fruit.

So we get the axe. We dig up under the ground, and we take the axe to the root of the tree. We cut out the wicked root, and replace the poisonous dirt with new fresh clean dirt. Or we just kill the tree, let it fall and plant a new one in a better place.

The Role of God’s Messenger

Jeremiah 1: 9 …And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. 10 See , I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out , and to pull down , and to destroy , and to throw down , to build , and to plant .

Jeremiah was told to speak God’s words and root out, pull down, destroy, throw down… then build, and plant.

Gods Words in Jeremiah’s Mouth was Authority:

Over Nations – governmental authorities – (as buildings)

Over Kingdoms – financial authorities – (as plants)

Actions That God’s Messenger Was Responsible to Do:

Root out: pull up what has grown up by the roots (as a plant)

Pull Down: pull down the branches that have grown up (as a plant)

Destroy: demolish, cause to vanish (as a building)

Throw down: tear down (as a building)

Plant (after pulling down)

Build (after tearing down)

So we’re not going to take shortcuts and step in as “blind visionary leaders” or “false prophets” to “Build and Plant” before we have done steps 1-4: “Root out, Pull down, Destroy, and Throw Down.”

So it’s 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.

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.
