Once again this post is not directed toward one in particular. I am being obedient.
He that has an ear let him hear.
STUMPED: Particularly difficult or baffling questions or problem. Mixed up.
BAFFLED: Perplexed by conflicting situations or statements.
1 Corinthians 14:33. For GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION, BUT OF PEACE, as in ALL CURCHES of the saints.
What happens to us when we start lending our ears and listening to people think they know everything? Whose ACTIONS DO NOT line up with the WORD OF GOD!
They say with their mouth, "l love God, but their heart is far from HIM."
Be aware of what you are being fed, and what you are eating!
BAD THINGS GOING IN...BAD THINGS WILL COME OUT!
GOOD THINGS GOING IN...GOOD THINGS WILL COME OUT!
JESUS says, it is not what goes in but what comes out of a man that DEFILES HIM!
Matthew 15:3, 7-20. NIV RED LETTERS HERE!
3.JESUS REPLIED, "And why do you break the commandment of God for the sake of YOUR TRADITION?
7. YOU HYPOCRITES! Isaiah was right abut you:
8. These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.
9. They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human RULES."
10. JESUS CALLED THE CROWD TO HIM AND SAID,
"LISTEN AND UNDERSTAND.
11. What goes into someone's mouth DOES NOT DEFILE THEM, but what COME OUT OF THEIR MOUTH, that is what DEFILES THEM."
12. Then the disciples came to him and asked, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?" (Really? you want to correct JESUS?)
13. HE REPLIED, " EVERY PLANT that MY HEAVENLY FATHER has not planted will be pulled up by the roots.
14. LEAVE THEM; THEY ARE BLIND GUIDES. IF THE BLIND LEAD THE BLIND, BOTH WILL FALL INTO A PIT."
15. Peter said, "Explain the parable to us."
16. "ARE YOU STILL SO DULL?" JESUS ASKED THEM.
17. DON'T YOU SEE that whatever ENTERS the mouth goes into the stomach and then OUT OF THE BODY?
18. BUT the things that come out of a persons MOUTH COME FROM THE HEART,
and these DEFILE them.
LISTEN CLOSELY TO THIS VERSE!
19. For OUT OF THE HEART COME EVIL THOUGHTS - MURDER, ADULTERY, SEXUAL IMMORALITY, THEFT, FALSE TESTIMONY, SLANDER.
20. THESE ARE WHAT DEFILES A PERSON; but eating with unwashen hands does not defile them.
Folks talking out of both sides of their mouth. Double minded in all of their ways!
6. But when you ask, you must BELIEVE and not DOUBT, because the one who doubts IS LIKE A WAVE OF THE SEA, BLOWN AND TOSSED BY THE WIND.
7.That PERSON SHOULD NOT EXPECT TO RECEIVE ANYTHING FROM THE LORD.
8. SUCH A PERSON IS DOUBLE- MINDED AND UNSTABLE IN ALL THEY DO.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I am not one to place a lot of stock in dreams! But, I had a dream. I believe it came as a warning to me.
My DREAM: August 1, 2014.
I saw people working a garden. The soil was prepared. They began planting "their" seed. Some of the seeds that were planted, were good seeds. Some of the seeds were rotten. The seeds grew up together and were harvested. (Just like the wheat and the tares.)
The harvested grain was gathered up, and the workers did not recognize the difference.
They were allowed to bring the "mixture" in.
This grain was a mixture. Poison, mixed with good.
The workers ground the seeds together to make flour.
From this flour they made bread.
It was served.
In my dream, there was a certain person, a woman. She seemed pleasant, and was aways smiling. As she walking amongst the people she was carrying a beautiful serving platter, it was filled, stacked up like a mountain with this bread. She was serving all of the people who were gathered there.
The bread smelled delicious, and looked very appetizing, indeed. She was serving the people there, they were eating this bread, they were saying," oh, this bread is delicious, this is so good." I noticed, as soon as they took their first bite, their countenance immediately changed. I was screaming, "DON'T EAT THAT! DON'T EAT THAT!" They did not hear me! Some began to look sick, some were choking, some were vomiting, and some even died.
It shocked me, that there was no alarm! The server, kept right on serving this bread, as if nothing was wrong with it!
She stopped in front of me, expecting me to take a piece. I quickly stepped away, backing up, I moved far away from the platter. The person serving the bread, came toward me, she forcefully pushed the platter up close to my face, speaking harshly to me, she demanded, that I was to take it and eat it! I looked at the bread. I did not touch it. I spoke back to her, I said, "I DO NOT "RECOGNIZE" THIS BREAD, AND I "REFUSE" TO EAT IT, AND I WILL NOT "PARTAKE" OF THIS!" MY DREAM ENDED HERE.
I WAS SHAKEN, when I was awakened!
Holy Spirit moved and spoke these words. I wrote them down.
This bread is a "mixture."
"WORDS" filled with poison. It not only did it make some sick, it wounded some, and it killed the innocent. The server was allowed to continue speak the poison. He said, "DO NOT BE DECEIVED" these words have even effected the seasoned, and mature Christians as well. But, because they did not see with their spiritual eyes, or hear with their spiritual ears, they did not discern whose spirit they were allowing to speak into them. Believing lies. They have eaten this bread of wickedness, they have chewed it up and swallowed it, they liked the taste of it, so much they have gone back for second and third helpings. HE said, they loved it! They loved it so much, now they are living, what they have eaten". I also heard Holy Spirit say, "these people have been IN THEIR OWN WAY for so so long. They have CONTINUALLY done the same things OVER AND OVER in REPETITION for many years, so long in fact, they believe their "own way is the only way" HE said, EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE WRONG, They believe they are RIGHT. THEY have been DECEIVED by a RELIGIOUS SPIRIT with an UNTEACHABLE SPIRIT to boot!"
They look down on anyone who stands up and speaks the Word and declaring its truths, because they believe....that they are truly the only ones who can clearly hear from God! Everyone else is beneath them. Therefore they are allowed, to belittle, criticize, make decisions concerning everyone else and their walk, whether they are even SAVED OR NOT! Questioning if people are even a blood bought member of the body of Christ!
This is happening everywhere, and seemingly, nothing is done to STOP these people. Or is there is not enough discernment to recognize and STOP THE Spirit of religion and its CONTROL? Or have we become so used to it, that we've turned a deaf ear and chosen to take a blind eye refusing to see this and address it? They REALLY BELIEVE THEY are the ONLY ONES who are RIGHT, and YES, in their own eyes they are!
I pray, Oh God, anoint their eyes with eye salve, that the scales that have blinded them for so long, let them fall off, and bring their spiritual eyes back into focus, to see clearly, before it is too late. In JESUS name.
PRAY, PRAY, PRAY! Who will ask Father for more dicsernment? Who will stand in agreement? Who will stand in the gap and pray against this this religious demonic force?
O LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, I ask You for more of JESUS, I desire and need more of HIS Love, Grace, Mercy and Compassion, evenly mixed with a deeper level of the spirit of discernment...YES LORD, today, more than ever, before! Grant it, in Jesus name. AMEN.
A dear minister friend of mine, she always ends her sermons with this quote.
"Baby, you better not die, if you don't love me."
REPENT quickly and ask for FORGIVENESS.
Because, the wounds that you have inflicted to one of Gods little ones, the ones you have caused to shed blood. Their blood will be required at your hands.
