Business As Usual…the blind leading the blind.

Lately myself and a couple of fellow warriors for the Kingdom are taking some heat & criticism for trying to warn the church of what is coming down the road spiritually that is a danger to them.

It would seem that the head in the sand mentality is in full effect in the church today.

It reminds me of a dog we once had. My mother in law, who passed away in 1984 had a poodle that we adopted. His name was Beau. Beau lived a long life but at the end of his life he went blind. it didn’t slow him down a beat. Of course, he would riccochet off of the walls as he hustled down the hallway to follow the other dogs outsidbe but he was unaffected by it. It was amusing to watch and I would somtimes add the sound effect of a bullet richochet as he did it.

Beau had a bad habit of stealing the cat food from the cat dish. Yes, we had dogs (3) and cats (2) in the same house. Everyone got along fine. But, Beau was addicted to the cat food and no matter how many times we moved it he would find it and eat it all.

One evening, as we ate dinner, I heard a noise coming from the kitchen. I slowly and quitely entered the kitchen to find Beau doing his best attempt to quietly creep toward the cat dish. He would walk a few steps, tilt his head and listen to discern if anyone was coming. A few steps. Stop and listen. This went on for a few minutes. He was working hard to get to the cat food. I quietly stood over the top of him as he crept toward his cat food fix. Just as he put his face into the dish I leaned over the top of him and screamed “BEAU!”

To say that he jumped would be an understatement. He went airborne and his feet were pawing the air to run away as he tried to escape even before he hit the ground from what was sure punishment for his efforts. I was laughing to hard to consider punishing him and he curtailed his cat food habit for a while. He was a great dog who lived a long full life…and ate a lot of stolen cat food.  🙂

It appeared that Beau believed that if he couldn’t see us then we must not be able to see him. His blindness had fooled him into a false sense of security that had a shockingly abrupt ending.

The church at large is the same way. Their spiritual blindness will have a shocking abrupt ending. The foolish idea that if they ignore the enemy’s efforts and do not talk about or listen to reports of the increase in demonic & supernatural activity that it won’t effect them.

In Matthew 15:14 the Lord spoke about “blind leaders of the blind” leading both into a ditch. The thing about falling into a ditch is that it leaves you as a sitting duck to any predator who might be pursuing you. The blind church is setting itself up for a shocking and aburpt ending when the roaring lion seeking to devour them pounces upon them.

Remember this saying when you accuse me or my other brothers like me of being “fear mongerers” for warning of what is coming – it’s better to be prepared for something that doesn’t happen then to be unprepared for something that does. It’s always better to err on the side of caution.

Or, you can just continue with business as usual and keep those spiritual eyes closed.

    HI: I listen to your shows and wanted to let you know that here in Henderson NV over the weekend apparently, free books are being handed out. They are books by Rev Sun Myung Moon. apparently it is his autobiography and some one at my office took one, and I saw another on a dashboard of a car at the shell station. Title of the book is “As A PEACE LOVING GLOBAL CITIZEN”. Satan is hard at work suddenly more intense in this area. I can sense a darkness and pray intercessory prayers as well as the binding prayers you have on your website. The girl at my office thought I might enjoy the book since i am “religious”
    (she was raised a mormon) Of course I refused to take the book using the word “cult” in my description of his “ministry” (term used very loosely). Please pass the word that the battle is heating up and intercessory prayer is appreciated in thwarting the plans of the enemy.

    If they are passing out books here, they will be passing them out in other places as well and people need to be warned. We are not to strive to be or consider ourselves to be peaceful global citizens, we are to walk separate and apart from this world (not of this world), setting ourselves apart by our obedience to Jesus Christ, the Word of God.

    I feel a need for more saints to really pray as intercessors for each other in the times we are in, as well as intense heartfelt study and prayer daily.

    GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU AND MAY HE SHOWER HIS BLESSINGS UPON YOUR MINISTRY,

    IN JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD AND SAVIOR

    Prayers of binding? I fear more that there is occultic activity going on with Christians because they lack discernment (which, when exercised, is warfare against error)! Zeal without knowledge is dangerous. Funny how the admonition of binding and loosing given to the disciples of the early Church and for the establishing of it (the foundation which needs no more foundations built on it) is taken by today’s pastors and teachers to be done against demons. That is the wrong interpretation of the scriptures! I thought we were not to entertain the devil! If you believe that the Kingdom must be established on earth before the Lord Jesus, the Christ, comes (you may not, but most who practice binding and loosing do and its prevelent in all denominations!) then you are ignorant of the Scriptures! Those who are asleep are those who are in error, not just that they are inactive. One prayer is to ask the Lord to reveal to you all that you believe to be truth that is, in actuality, error. And, please, don’t think yourself too proud to be in error just because you have believed as you have for years and have seen results from those beliefs! I did and shortly thereafter destroyed every C. Peter Wagnor book I had! Along with the books by Joyce Meyer, Pat Robertson, Jack Hayford, and on and on…

    As always, God bless you in all that you do for His Kingdopm, by His power, for His glory~
    (but if you be in error then may God open your eyes wide to see it!)

      Wow, what a wonderfully heavy handed and intellectually arrogant approach. And wrong!
      First of all, I am not one of the people you mention nor do I adhere to their ways or support their ministries.

      I am also not someone who just writes about things. I actually get out thre and DO. I share from experiential knowledge. 22+ years worth of experiential knowledge and fruit of which I will put up against anyone who says otherwise. It’s by their fruit a tree is known. Good fruit cannot come from a bad tree.

      We have spiritual authority NOW given to us by the Cross and by His own dispensational authority. We DO NOT as yet have natural authority because He has not come back a second time to enforce that. I am NOT a Kingdom Now person. How you got that from what I wrote clearly shows you see with a critical eye and not a clear one. I too have seen the results my their teachings and that is why I do not promote nor support them and have seen the results of my beliefs and they are good fruit that glorifies the Lord.

      As to your other comments, the Lord would have answered them this way –

      Matthew 12:24-37(NKJV)
      24Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, “This fellow does not cast out demons except by £Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.”
      25But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.
      26If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?
      27And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges.
      28But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you.
      29Or how can one enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.
      30He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad.
      31“Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.
      32Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.
      33“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit.
      34Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
      35A good man out of the good treasure £of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.
      36But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.
      37For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

      If you were trying to impart to me something of value it would have been missed in the heavy handed spiritually arrogant approach. Luckily I’ve been at this long enough to look past the bluster to see what it was you were trying to say and why.

      First to the “why” – you sound like someone wounded by the failures and error of some spiritual warfare teachings. And, you mention the teachers you have problems with. As you do not know much about me I will forgive your mistake. I am not one of them nor do I support any that you mention. However, while you saw the error of their ways you missed the initial Biblical truths they started from. Truths that I suspect you’ve lost and would have wonder what effect losing them has had on you. However, that is not my place to question.

      As you have sat down in the Judgement Seat regarding my teachings and ministry with you blanket condemnation of what you think I believe and this comment sticks out the most “And, please, don’t think yourself too proud to be in error just because you have believed as you have for years and have seen results from those beliefs!” I believe I’ve seen something like this once before.

      Matthew 12:24-37(NKJV)
      24Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, “This fellow does not cast out demons except by £Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.”
      25But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.
      26If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?
      27And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges.
      28But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you.
      29Or how can one enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.
      30He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad.
      31“Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.
      32Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.
      33“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit.
      34Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
      35A good man out of the good treasure £of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.
      36But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.
      37For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

      So, I think I will submit my 22+ years of experiential and activce, ongoing knowledge against your opinion. And, as the Lord states – will put the fruit of my ministry and teachings up for inspection. Good fruit (people getting saved, healed and delivered) can only come from a good tree.
      Matthew 7:18-20(NKJV)
      18A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
      19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
      20Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

      I pray you healed of the hurt that has been caused and release that critical judgemental spirit you expressed here. There is only One who can sit that in that Seat and it’s not us.
