A WARNING TO THE CHURCH!!!
1 Timothy 4:1
the spirit speaks express, that in latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines
( Giving attention to deluding and seducing spirits, and doctoring that demons teach.)
We are living in perilous times. You can watch the news or read the paper and you automatically know that we are in
the latter days. There is not a day that goes by that we do not see prophecy fulfilled. The church needs to get their head
out of the sand and realize that we too are in perilous times.
I believe that we are in the generation that will see the
return of the Lord. I also believe that God has given to this generation the desire to see the supernatural. I believe that
God knew that we as Christians would have to walk in the supernatural in order to fulfill his plan. Satan is working overtime
he has held nothing back and is slowly convincing people of his power and authority. I believe that the church will have to
be at the place where we walk in the anointing and see the miraculous in our every day life. God wants this for three reasons.
1)To bring salvation to the lost.
2) To strengthen us in this time of tribulation in this world.
3) To prove that
he is GOD!!!!!
This desire that we have for the supernatural will do one of two things.
1)It will give us the desire
to seek God, pay the price, crucify our flesh and be obedient to the spirit, until we see the manifestation of Gods power
2)We will allow this desire to overcome the leading of the spirit, and succumb to seducing spirits and doctoring
of devils in order to see a manifestation that we think is God.
1 Timothy 4:1
Now the spirit
speaks express, that in latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.
Giving attention to deluding and seducing spirits, and doctoring that demons teach.)
say: I'm a Christian I would not give in to a seducing spirit or doctoring of devils. I cannot be lead by a satanic spirit.
Well at least that is what I said. I was raised in a Christian home. My Father and Mother pastored The whole time I was growing
up. I was taught what many today would call the OLD SCHOOL. I too at one time called it that. I now know that it is not the
OLD SCHOOL, It was my foundation in Christianity. The word of God gives us direction to follow when you are unsure about the
direction you are taking.
2 Timothy 3:13-15
13) But wicked men and imposters will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and leading astray others
and being deceived and led astray themselves.
14) But as for you, continue to hold to the things that you have learned and of which you are
convinced, knowing from whom you learned them.
15) And how from your childhood you have had knowledge of and been acquainted with the sacred
Writings, which are able to instruct you and give you the understanding for salvation which comes through faith in Christ
Jesus. [ Through the leaning of the entire human personality on God in Christ Jesus in absolute trust and confidence in his
power, wisdom, and goodness.] Amplified Bible
I believe God is telling us. If you are not sure about a new move of God. If You have questians
about a so called new revelation of God. Go back to the basics. Go back to your foundation. Go back to the way you were taught.
Keep your feet planted in the foundation that was built in you as a child or a young Christian.
When I was sixteen, My Father was not Pastoring and I began going to church with my Best friend.
This church only had about 8 members at the time and the pastors were young and full of zeal. I had found pastors that had
that desire for the new things of God. Pastors that wanted to see the supernatural, and like me they would do whatever it
would take to see this power manifest in our midst. We began to study on prayer. Then we started a to read the word of God
like never before. God was opening our eyes to new things. The revelation of the Holy spirit was Awesome. It was so exciting
when God would speak to us. The church grew quickly and we soon had over 100 people in the church. The lost was being saved,
the sinner was being delivered. We were so excited to see the hand of God move. The sky was the limit. We knew that God was
going to use our church to save the whole city where we were located. I believe that we were on the right track. I am not
saying that we had arrived, we were just on the right track. We were so excited about what God was doing in our midst that
we didn't question when a seducing spirit came into our midst. There are times when you have so much zeal for the things of
God that we will accept anything that looks good or seems right, to be God. How could moving up to a new level in God, be
wrong? You see the Devil has watched churches he sees their weaknesses and he takes advantage. Some churches are really moved
to worship. Which is not wrong at all. The devil will send a spirit of error in to deceive this body without them even noticing.
He slowly increases the amount of emotions that are released in a worship service until he has that church right where he
wants them. It may take the devil some time but because that spirit of error was not stopped immediatly it now moves peoples
emotions to the point that it is not God moving the worship service it is now emotionalism, that is in control. It will get
to the point that knowing the difference between when God speaks or moves or what is your emotions becomes impossible. Allowing
emotions to lead in any part of a service is opening the door for the works of the flesh. After emotions are allowed
in worship. The Devil takes the church to an even higher level. The church thinks it is awesome. The devil thinks it is great.
He has taught the church to respond to and with emotions. Now he can take it up a notch. Now the church is allowing the emotions
to lead and they dont even know it. So many times the messages are spoke out of emotions. With good intentions I am sure.
People begin to prophesy and give words of knowledge. Saying what they feel is God.. Is what they are saying from God? Or
are they so moved with compassion or emotion that their intentions to do good, are mislead to a word of knowledge or prophesy.
The problem is that many times they are no longer lead by the spirit of God but they are lead by their emotions. What is so
scary about this is when you are in this place you really feel like you are walking beside God, with a direct line to his
throne. The thing is that satan has slowely deceived the church into a false since of security. At the time you feel like
you were only doing what God was telling you, But like I said earlier when you allow you emotions to lead, you get to where
you can't tell the difference in what is God and what you feel. So satan has you right where he wants you. You are deceived
and dont even know it.
I am not saying worship, prophesy and words of knowledge are wrong. What I am saying that if
you are not careful satan will use these tools to deceive you. Satan will blind your eyes and cause your heart to the point
that you cannot see just how misdirected you are. I believe that in these last days satan is trying to get into the church
by being spiritual. He sees the desire of our hearts and slowely he makes those desires come to past. Just remember if you
questian a move of God, a prophesy or word of knowledge. Go back to the basics.
15) Therefore bretheren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether
by word or by epistle.
