Following people who were not sent by God


 
 

There was a Christian radio personality who used his position on the airwaves to preach against any modern-day apostles. The word, apostle, means "one sent." In other words, he was preaching against any who seem to be sent by God. He claimed that anyone who does not believe what he believes (and a lot of what he believes is very speculative) does not have the Spirit of God. He claimed that the only ones who have the Spirit of God are him, that is, the Christian radio personality, and those who believe his speculative doctrine. No one else has the Spirit of God, because if they had the Spirit of God, they would agree with him.

Look at what this Christian radio personality has done. He has set himself up as the Pope of the world, the chief apostle, the only last and final authority on everything.

As such an authority, he declared that God no longer does miracles. God no longer raises the dead. God no longer heals the sick. God no longer uses the gifts of the Spirit of God. God no longer baptizes with the Spirit resulting in people speaking in the unknown tongue. He created a cult of Naturalism with himself as the chief revelator, because He has the Holy Spirit and others do not.

1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

2 Peter 2:1-3 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

He declares that he has the complete package. He has everything that anyone needs. There is no need to press toward the mark of any high calling. There is no high calling except to push for political change.

"A horrible and shocking thing has happened in the land: The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it this way. They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. 'Peace, peace,' they say, when there is no peace." Jeremiah 5:30-31 & 6:14.

Many are captive to the religious systems of this age. The word, "peace," in the passage above, means "completeness." It is the Hebrew word, "Shalom," which is used for "hello" and "goodbye" but means "completeness." So they say, "Completeness, completeness," when there is no completeness. They say, "We have it all. No need to look further."

 

And God is saying, "Come up higher. My salvation is so wonderful that it is beyond the understanding of your human mind. Come and partake of my mind. I will teach you of my ways and you shall walk in my paths. Come from glory to glory by the Spirit of the Lord. Come to the manifestation of the Sons of God, to the measure of the fullness of Christ."

There are other false apostles all over the place.

There was a man handing out calling cards that had his name on them. Under the name were the words, "Apostle" and "Prophet." I wonder if a real apostle or prophet needs to announce what he is? If it is not apparent, then something is wrong.

There was a man who became a Christian TV star. He had a great ministry that brought in a ton of money. He healed the sick with wonderful showmanship. He claimed to be an apostle and a prophet. In fact, he prophesied many things, but his prophesies didn't always come true.

Deuteronomy 18:22 If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him.

1 Kings 22:20-22 And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner. And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. And the LORD said to him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee. But Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near, and smote Micaiah on the cheek, and said, Which way went the Spirit of the LORD from me to speak to thee? And Micaiah said, Behold, thou shalt see in that day, when thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself.

The desire to hear what we want to hear is very strong in the flesh. This is why we need to die to self.

Ezekiel 13:2-9 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou to them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the LORD; Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD. They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word. Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken? Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD. And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.

Jeremiah 3:16-22 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not to the words of the prophets that prophesy to you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD. They say still to them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say to every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you. For who hath stood in the counsel of the LORD, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it? Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.

In the present day, there are many false apostles and false prophets. There are many false authorities, claiming to be speaking the truth. Who is standing in the presence of the Lord and hearing His voice?

We are responsible to stop listening to the prophets that prophesy lies. Many of these are in the church, but we need to stop listening to the secular prophets on the news shows and in the movie theaters.

People want to follow everyone who is popular, but watch out!

Luke 6:26 Woe to you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
