PROPHETIC WORD (11/12/10)
BEHOLD I DO A NEW THING!
The Lord is impressing on me that we are moving into a new season, a new season of new beginnings. We will continue to see the world in upheaval, but as we, the purified bride, discern the moving hand of God, will begin to see God bringing a new kind of order and stability into His people. Just as in the Old Testament, when there was no open vision and a sparseness of the prophets and the true prophetic word, God brought Samuel on the scene and God began to restore His standards of Holiness to his people.. God, through Samuel, instituted the 3 in One ministry (the ministry that I have prophesied about since 1999) the ministry of Prophet, Priest and King. In the days of Samuel, this was a forshadowing of the Messiah. We will see a new order of the prophetic and prophets who will carry the apostolic (kingly) prophetic, priestly offices in new dimensions. Samuel brought a stability and trust in God. We, the remnant, have been like Hannah grieved and waiting and incubating the birthing of the next move.
Peninniah, a type of the church had children but they were not THE CHILD. This represents the former things that have not truly represented the true heart of the Father, nor the rightful heir. Hannah represents God's first love. Elkanah represents the zeal of God without the wisdom of God, and is a type of the church that has gone out in zeal but has acted without wisdom. Elkanh says to Hannah, "Am I not better than 10 sons to thee?" In other words, "I should be enough for you. You should be satisfied." 10 represents the number of Divine Order, fullfillment and completion. That is what those in the church have professed that they carried, yet, we have not seen the authentic move. Instead, we have seen the counterfeit, the misguided and even the well intended, like clouds without water. That was not enough for Hannah. Hannah wanted more. In fact, Hannah knew she was created to birth something spectacular and would not settle. Nothing satifies the Bride, but the Bridegroom. Nothing will satisfy us except THE MORE OF HIM IN THE NEXT MOVE. It is at the threshold. We are at the threshold.
Like Hannah, Samuel, Saul and David, who lived in the Greatness of God and made history rather than letting an institution, a culture or a denomination define them. They lived in the largeness of God's reality, God's realm, God's country. We must cross over the threshold and step into this greatness. Not a season "to live up to" but "to live into" this truth, this dynamic this dimension ushers us into maturity. This season will be a season of manifestation of maturity of the remnant. There are those of the remant that are pregnant with this maturity that will be imparted to His people. "We don't know what we will be like but we know that when He appears we shall be like Him". 1John.
CHRISTIANITY SEE OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH TO SEE WHAT CHRISTIANS BELIEVE.
The central and basic truth of Chrisitanity is that Jesus Christ is God Incarnate. A cult can simply be defined as those religions that do not acknowledge that profound truth. We are directed as Christians to stay away from ANYTHING that does GIVE HONOR TO CHRIST AND DOES NOT BELIEVE THE BIBLICAL TRUTHS ESPECIALLY THAT DOES not believe dishonors Christ, Incarnate.
SOME HIGHLIGHTS OF OTHER WORLD CULTS AND RELIGIONS BELIEFS ( BUT NOT ALL INCLUSIVE):
MORMONISM or (Latter Day Saints)
WHAT DO MORMONS BELIEVE? GOD THE FATHER WAS ONCE A MAN, (from another planet) BUT "PROGRESSED" TO godhood. HE HAS A PHYSICAL BODY, AS DOES HIS WIFE (HEAVENLY MOTHER). NO TRINITY. FATHER, SON AND HOLY GHOST ARE 3 SEPARATE GODS. WORTHY MEN MAY ONE DAY BECOME GODS THEMSELVES. Jesus is a separate god from the Father (Elohim). He was created as a spirit child by the Father and Mother in Heaven, and is the "elder brother" of all men and spirit beings. His body was created through sexual union between Elohim and Mary. Jesus was married. His death on the cross does not provide full atonement for all sin, but does provide everyone with resurrection. Holy Spirit is different from "Holy Ghost" is not God, but is an influence or electricity-like emanation from God or "light of Christ". Memebers are exalted to Godhead by works including faithfulness to the Mormon church leaders, Mormon baptism, thithing, ordination, marriage, and SECRET TEMPLE RITUALS. NO ETERNAL LIFE WITHOUT MORMON MEMBERSHIP. EVERYONE GOES TO ONE OF 3 HEAVENLY KINGDOMS with some achieving Godhood except Apostates and murderers go to "outer darness". (Cited from Rose Book of BIBLE CHARTS, MAPS & TIME LINES)
Joseph Smith, Jr. (1805-1844) founder, received the Mormon beliefs from an angel who gave him golden tablets.
BUDDHISM.... REFORMED HINDUISM.. Guatama Siddhartha, THE BUDDA (enlightened one) 563-483 BC founded in Napal and India. Budda did not believe in the existence of God. Others speak of the Budda as a universal enlightened consciousness or as a god. Jesus Christ is not part of the historic Buddhist worldview. Western Buddist believe Jesus is generally viewed as an enlightened teacher while those in Asia believe Jesus is an Avatar or a Bodhisattva (but not God). Buddists do believe in spirits and some practice diety yoga and invite spirit possession. Goal of life is Nirvana, to eliminate all desires, or cravings and escape suffering this way. Their answer to eternity is reincarnation. The Eightfold Path recommends right knowledge, intentions, speech, conduct, livelihood, right effort, mindfulness and meditation. Through the "Doctrine of Assimilation" belief systems of other religions are blended into their form of Buddhism. YOGA IS A BUDDIST PRACTICE. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOGA HAS BECOME A VERY POPULAR SUBSTITUE. THE MOVEMENTS OF YOGA INVITE DEMONIC SPIRITS IN TO THE SOUL.
NEW AGE: May use selected Bible passages or I Ching, Hindu, buddhist and Taoist and Native American Beliefs, Astrology, mysticism and magic. Everything and Everyone is God. God is an impersonal force or principle not a person. People have unlimited inner power and need to discover it. Jesus is not the one true God. He is not a savior, but a spritual model, and guru, and is now an "Ascended Master." He was a New Ager who tapped into divine power in the same way that anyone can. Many believe he went east to India or Tibet and learned mytical truths. He did not rise physically, but "rose" into a higher spiritual realm. Man is divine and can experience psychic phenomena such as contacting uneartly beings. Bad Karma/Good Karma... Can tap into supernatural power through, meditation, self-awarness, and "spirit guides.: Use terms such as "reborn" and can talk about the "Holy Spirit" but is not THE HOLY SPIRIT. They believe in reincarnation which continues until person reaches oneness with God. No literal heaven or hell. Can include yoga, meditation, astrology, channeling, hypnosis, trances and tarot card readings. Use of crystals to get in harmony with God (energy) for psychic healing for contact with spirits, and for developing higher consciousness or other psychic powers. Psychic healing occurs through the "laying on of hands" Riki,and other techniques (beware) psychic surgery through demonic powers. However when one opens oneself to anything such as the above demonic invasion occurrs. A person may be healed of a disease, but another demon infirmity will manifest later on in the person's life. They strive for world unity and peace. Emphasis on holistic healing.
WHEN LEADERS LEAN!
BEING IN MINISTRY CAN BE VERY BURDENSOME, TRYING, AND PAINFUL AT TIMES. AS A MINISTER, I KNOW THAT OUR LIVES COME UNDER ATTACK. IRONICALLY, THE ATTACKS CAN EVEN AND OFTEN COME IN THE FORM OF OUR OWN FAMILY MEMBERS, OR EVEN THROUGH OUR MATES OR CHILDREN AT TIMES. AT OTHER TIMES, THE ATTACKS CAN OCCUR IN OUR VERY AREA OF EXPERTISE.
FOR EXAMPLE, A MINISTER WHO'S MANDATE IS DELIVERANCE MAY HAVE A CHILD WHO MOCKS THE DELIVERANCE MINISTRY. I REMEMBER HEARING MARILYN HICKEY SAY THAT HER DAUGHTER ABANDONED HER CHRISTIAN FAITH FOR A SEASON AND BECAME A BUDDIST. CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW THAT MUST HAVE AFFECTED HER AND HER FAMILY?
I KNEW A CHARISMATIC PASTOR IN NEW ORLEANS, WHO'S DAUGHTER WAS BI-POLAR. SHE WAS A VICTIM OF THE ENEMY AND WENT ABOUT WREAKING HAVOC AGAINST HIS CHURCH, TRYING TO DISCREDIT HIM. SHE LIVED A LIFE OF CHAOS AND REBELLION. SHE SPREAD LIES ABOUT HE AND HIS WIFE AND TRIED TO SPLIT THEIR CHURCH. SADLY, EVENTUALLY SHE COMMITTED SUICIDE.
WE KNOW THAT STILL OTHERS LOOSE THIER CHILDREN TO ILLNESSES AND ACCIDENTS. RECENT WELL KNOWN LEADERS SUCH AS STEPHEN CURTIS CHAPMAN, GARY OLIVER, STEVE BROCK, RODNEY HOWARD BROWN AND RANDY WHITE HAVE ALL TRAGICALLY LOST THEIR CHILDREN.
THE ENEMY'S ATTACKS IS MERCILESS AND OFTEN ARE EXTREMELY CRUEL. LOOK AT JOB AND WHAT HE WENT THROUGH. BETTER YET, LOOK AT JESUS AND WHAT HE WENT THROUGH. JESUS TOLD US THE ATTACKS WILL COME. HE SAID IF THE WORLD HATED HIM, IT WILL HATE YOU. THAT HATE TAKES MANY FORMS AND HAS MANY FACES. AS MINISTERS OF GOD, WE ARE NOT IMMUNE TO SUCH HATERED AND ATTACKS. ATTACKS HAPPEN TO THE MOST ANOINTED AT TIMES. LOOK AT PAULA AND RANDY WHITE, JUANITA BYNUM, BENNY AND SUZANNE HINN. PAIN IS PAIN. WE BLEED WHEN WE ARE CUT. WE CRY WHEN WE ARE HURT. SOME GET DISCOURAGED, AT TIMES.
ATTACKS ARE THE ENEMY'S WAY OF TRYING TO MOCK THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD AND THE WAY HE TRIES TO GET BACK AT GOD. HE CAN'T GET TO GOD SO HE ATTACKS US. BUT GOD! BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL AND THE ANCHOR HOLDS! THE ATTACKS CAN MEAN YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK. WE LIVE IN A FALLEN, BROKEN WORLD. WE COPE THROUGH THE POWER OF CHRIST AND HIS GRACE! I CAN DO, YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENTHENS YOU!
PAUL WROTE WE ARE BETRAYED AND BEATEN, WE ARE REJECTED BUT WE DO NOT DISPAIRING. WE ARE CAST DOWN BUT WE ARE NOT TAKEN OVER BY THE POWER OF THE ENEMY. WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS IN CHRIST. WE OVERCOME BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, AND THE WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY AND WE LOVE NOT OUR LIVES UNTO DEATH. THINGS OF THIS LIFE ARE TEMPORAL. WE ARE PASSING THROUGH AND THERE IS SO MUCH MORE.
TO BE CONTINUED!
