10 Prophetic Abuses and Manipulation

I have found the prophetic gift, including inspirational preaching, teaching and prophetic words to be the most edifying of all the gifts as St. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 14. However, with every true gift of God comes either a counterfeit and or an abuse. You can say that about all of the cluster of gifts mentioned in Ephesians 4:11. The prophetic gift can especially be very dangerous if left un-checked, since people think the words spoken are directly from God and will often obey them without question or the use of discernment. Based on all my years of operating in the prophetic, as well as mentoring, nurturing, overseeing and hosting many prophetic ministers, the following are ten signs of prophetic abuse and manipulation.

Three Characteristics of a Truly Spiritual Man

Three Characteristics of a Truly Spiritual Man

We read in First Corinthians 1:5,7 that the Corinthian Christians excelled in three areas – knowledge of the Scriptures, preaching and the gifts of the Spirit. Yet in spite of having all these, they were not spiritual. It is rare indeed to find believers who have the discernment to recognize that a gifted, eloquent preacher whose knowledge of the Bible is extensive and who in addition, has miraculous gifts of the Spirit as well, need not be a spiritual man at all. He could be thoroughly carnal.

Signs of Hyper-Grace Churches

Signs of Hyper-Grace Churches

The past several decades we have seen a dramatic decline in doctrinal and Biblical preaching. We have gone from theology to therapy in the pulpits. In the past decade we went from therapy to motivational speaking instead of preaching. In addition to this, whole churches and movements have oriented themselves to a distorted understanding of the gospel by espousing a “hyper-grace” approach that trickles down to not only what they preach but who they allow to minister and teach.

Biblical Proof Christians CAN Fall Away

Biblical Proof Christians CAN Fall Away

This entry is part of 1 in the series Apostasy

In the same last days in which God is pouring out His Spirit upon all mankind (Joel 2:28), and multitudes are coming into the Kingdom of God, at the same time, many temporary believers are falling away from the faith. Many of them continue to attend church services, however, masquerading behind a facade of piety while their personal lives and behavior is as apostate as can be. As Jude said of such false brethren: “These men are those who are hidden reefs in your love feasts (worship services) when they feast with you without fear” (Jude 12).

64 Ways Obama Is Sabotaging Trump’s Presidency

64 Ways Obama Is Sabotaging Trump’s Presidency

It might seem outrageous and unprecedented that a newly departed president would devote himself to overthrowing his successor, but that is exactly what a mountain of growing evidence appears to indicate. “Obama’s goal, according to a close family friend, is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment,” the Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

Functional Vs. Titular Church Leadership

Functional Vs. Titular Church Leadership

Through the years, I have observed various types of leadership styles as well as how people operate within the flow of leadership titles. I have found that those who attempt to lead merely through their official title have little or no respect in the organization. This is not to say that titles are unimportant; titles are useful in the military, politics, business, and the police department, not only to depict who is responsible for what task but to explain their job description. However, in the context of the business and the church world, continually touting one’s title is often unnecessary since relational leadership trumps hierarchical leadership more often than not in these contexts. In the context of Christianity, the church went from a functional style of leadership in the first two centuries to a hierarchical form of leadership.

Let Us Pray!

Let Us Pray!

Prayer is the most powerful weapon we possess, yet the enemy makes it seem like the most difficult to wield, and even the most ineffectual. But, that is deception. God’s word says, “The effectual and fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much!” Interpretation? Prayer works! Is it difficult? About as difficult as thinking the next thought that wistfully and effortlessly flutters through your mind. The only thing difficult about prayer is overriding one’s flesh that resists us doing it with all it’s got!

The Order of Eschatalogical Events

The Order of Eschatalogical Events

The following video provides a clear and understandable explanation of the order of eschatalogical (end-time) events that will take place in the near future beginning with the Rapture (Catching Up) of the Church. This outstanding teaching of what to many is a confusing subject matter, that is often made worse by convoluted expositions by some “eschatology gurus,” is by our friend, Leslie Hale, “The Irish Preacher,” who is a tremendously knowledgeable teacher and skillful communicator of the Word of God.

Exposing the Dangers of Martial Arts (Part 3)

Exposing the Dangers of Martial Arts (Part 3)

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Exposing Dangers of Martial Arts

For those involved in the martial arts and related arts, or for those who are considering becoming involved to any degree, have you ever wondered about the source of power that is behind them, or where it originates? Have you investigated, asked questions, or considered that all of these practices overlap and are integrated with each other? Have you asked who founded or created them, or what were their original purposes? Do you want to know the truth? Obviously, martial arts and yoga did not develop on their own out of thin air. They both have a complex root system, the knowledge of which may come as a surprise to many.

OBAMA-NATION! Obama Betrays Israel, Curses America!

OBAMA-NATION! Obama Betrays Israel, Curses America!

Friday’s stunning betrayal of Israel at the U.N. Security Council is making headlines all over the planet, but the truth is that what Obama has just done is far more serious than most people would dare to imagine. Over the past several decades, whenever the U.S. government has taken a major step toward the division of the land of Israel, it has resulted in a major disaster hitting the United States. This keeps happening over and over again, and yet our leaders never seem to learn.

Exposing the Dangers of Martial Arts (Part 2)

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Exposing Dangers of Martial Arts

Jesus is coming back SOON for a holy church without spot or wrinkle (Eph. 5:27). Contrary to what many believe, He is not going to accept those who are practicing occult practices that are antichrist. May the Lord give each of you great knowledge, wisdom, discernment, and understanding in the days ahead, and may He use you to help others get ready. May you continue to walk in His ways and hear and obey Him until the day He returns.

Exposing the Dangers of Martial Arts

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Exposing Dangers of Martial Arts

A thorough study of their roots or origins produces the unequivocal and undeniable conclusion that all forms of martial arts are derived from and are inextricably interrelated with false religions and the occult, and specific tenets and practices of same. To state it another way, martial arts are composed of and derive from false religions and the occult, and therefore, intrinsically amount to same.

God’s Select Human Torch – America’s Spiritual Founding Father

God’s Select Human Torch – America’s Spiritual Founding Father

The Great Awakening literally changed the moral climate of colonial America. Entire communities were transformed. Profanity, lewdness, and drunkenness almost completely disappeared, especially in some areas. Reports in New England alone show thirty thousand to forty thousand converts and 150 new churches. No one had a greater role in this transformation than George Whitefield.

EXPOSED: “Black Lives Matter” Marxist Agitprop

EXPOSED: “Black Lives Matter” Marxist Agitprop

The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. Its agitation has provoked police killings and other violence, lawlessness and unrest in minority communities throughout the U.S. If allowed to continue, that agitation could devolve into anarchy and civil war. The BLM crowd appears to be spoiling for just such an outcome.

Apostles of Christ Contrasted From Church Apostles

Apostles of Christ Contrasted From Church Apostles

Oftentimes, church apostles are just focused on their local church and/or their network or denomination. One of the reasons is because their assignment is limited to those works they personally oversee or have founded. They do not have the grace or leadership capacity to go beyond their particular church system, doctrine and/or culture. On the other hand, apostles of Christ have an ambassadorial call that transcends any one church, movement or denomination. Hence, even if they try to focus on one group or movement, God will constantly pull them into other church communities and/or nations to build apostolic foundations related to doctrine or Kingdom life.

Obama’s Empty Speech To The Nation

Obama’s Empty Speech To The Nation

When the President of the United States asks the television networks to set aside time for him to broadcast a speech from the Oval Office, we can usually expect that he has something new to say. But President Obama’s speech Sunday night was just a rehash of what he has been saying all along, trying to justify policies that have repeatedly turned out disastrously for America and our allies.

Why the Mizzou Milieu is So Outrageous

Why the Mizzou Milieu is So Outrageous

As long as we allow business as usual in this collegiate shop of horrors, these cultural Marxist change agents will keep manufacturing fake racial incidents, anti-LGBT “hate crimes” and any number of similarly ridiculous, yet equally effective, pretexts for remaining perpetually POed. Until the adults put the children in time-out, this destructive AstroTurf movement, with it’s delicate yet blindly determined little flowers, will continue to blossom.

Peculiarities of Present-Day Prophets

Peculiarities of Present-Day Prophets

God calls all kinds of people to be prophets. The Lord chose the foolish things to confound the things that are wise (1 Cor. 1:27-29). David was an obscure shepherd boy. Amos was not a prophet or a prophet’s son. God calls people who would not qualify by the standards of men. Prophets are not determined by men but by God. God’s choice is a challenge and rebuke against the pride of men.
