Many are weighing in on the current crisis and situation that the world finds itself in. With all of the voices and opinions coming forth I think it’s important that we clarify some things from a scriptural view point. Repentance and humility are and should be at the forefront of true prophetic revelation about the times that we live in. We need the Fear of Adonai now more than ever. ￼ It is clear that Adonai has allowed this pestilence to happen or even possibly caused much of it for His Purposes of righteous judgement. Scripture tells us He does this to bring about His righteousness and to cause a return to humility and repentance. To bring His People back into alignment to His ways. So of course when people begin decreeing and commanding against the work of Yah’s hand it is ineffective and out of line. But it is very important that we rightly divide!
WHAT IS FROM YHVH AND WHAT IS FROM SATAN?
Pestilence is a form of judgment we know from scripture that can come from The Lord. But do you really believe that the demonic agendas of fear and control that are piggy backing on this pestilence are of The Lord? We should seek discernment in all things and respond in repentance to His judgments and His warnings. Once that has truly been fulfilled, we should absolutely take our authority over the demonic manifestations of fear, confusion, oppression, and all other evil spirits that have been loosed on the Earth. Scripture is clear that God did not give us a spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind...
Scripture gives us multiple testimonies of Israel living in peace and defeating their enemies when they were walking in righteousness. But when they were living in sin and rebellion, The Lord gave their enemies victory over them. Adonai will allow things to happen to bring about His Judgement and purposes in His People. But let’s be careful when we start assuming that EVERYTHING that is happening is of The Lord. Or that everything that is happening is of the devil. This requires discernment and rightly dividing scenarios and situations.
CRISIS OF DISCERNMENT IN THE BODY
There are actually some leaders in the body who believe that they should get their information from the mainstream media. They believe that information is reliable and true.
Honestly, I find this disturbing, ludicrous, and absolutely catastrophic for the leadership position to which they have been entrusted. They are leading many astray in this season, and The Lord will hold them accountable. Where is their discernment? Albert Einstein once said, “Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance”. I have actually read and heard leaders condemning things that they openly admit they have not researched or investigated. How can someone possibly share a solid position without investigating for themselves? I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to sit under a Pastor who never read the Bible for themselves.
This fiasco has been perhaps the most painful thing to watch as many believers listen to the leaders blindly and are unaware of what is actually happening. This is because for so long they haven’t developed their own relationship with The Lord, but instead trusted wrongly in a person instead of Yeshua. Many are clearly speaking out of fear, and believing all that they are being told without testing the spirit or praying for revelation from the Holy Spirit! Then they are turning around and masking their positions as that of being loving, thoughtful or obedient. Now, before you get all worked up, I am not speaking about those who are using wisdom and discernment and taking precautions against a serious virus. I have always said that we should take this seriously and use precautions. But people are free to choose are they not?
Sadly, some leaders and other believers are calling their brothers and sisters “rebellious” and “arrogant” for not believing everything that is being claimed by the mainstream media. And in some cases I have even heard some people say that those who don’t believe and comply with the mainstream narrative are operating in witchcraft! (citing a scripture from Isaiah that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft) What a dishonest twisting of scripture! Does scripture not tell us to “test every spirit”? 1 John 4:1-6
“Dear friends, don’t trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
Here is how you recognize the Spirit of God: every spirit which acknowledges that Yeshua the Messiah came as a human being is from God, and every spirit which does not acknowledge Yeshua is not from God — in fact, this is the spirit of the Anti-Messiah. You have heard that he is coming. Well, he’s here now, in the world already!
You, children, are from God and have overcome the false prophets, because he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore, they speak from the world’s viewpoint; and the world listens to them.
We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God doesn’t listen to us. This is how we distinguish the Spirit of truth from the spirit of error.” 1 Yochanan (1 John) 4:1-6 CJB
Here’s an honest and logical question for you:
Are those whom you are getting your “news” from believers in Yeshua? Are all of the news anchors, Dr. Faucet, Gill Bates (Names changed for censorship reasons) and others pushing forward these agendas of God? Do they believe that Yeshua is their Messiah? I think we can all agree that the answer is 'no'. Are they from God? No, they are not. And we are not to believe them. Scripture tells us that they are of the Anti-Christ Spirit. Don’t agree? Please go back up to 1 John 4:1-6 and read that again. I would argue that many of these news anchors and worldly “leaders” that are pushing forward their agendas are false prophets that are pushing forward the agenda of Anti-Christ. Is that not what we just read in 1 John? So for those leaders in the Body of Christ who are believing the spirit of antichrist and condemning their brothers and sisters for testing those spirits and finding them false...May The Lord rebuke you.
Does scripture not tell us to “Not be deceived”? Jeremiah 9:6 - “You live in the midst of deception; in their deceit they refuse to acknowledge me” declares The Lord”
Ephesians 5:6 - “Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things Gods wrath comes on those who are disobedient.”
Psalm 120:2 - “Save me Lord from lying lips and from deceitful tongues”
Did Yeshua Himself not tell us in the end times to “Not let anyone mislead us”?
“Yeshua replied: “Watch out! Don’t let anyone fool you!”
Mattityahu (Mat) 24:4 CJB
Confidence in Adonai and the supernatural peace that some carry right now have nothing to do with arrogance and rebellion. Instead, It has everything to do with discernment from dwelling in The Secret Place of The Most High. Many have used their discernment and have tested those spirits and have found them false. It is very sad that so many have been deceived.
When you sit at the feet of Yeshua you have nothing to fear. Yeshua saw what His Father was doing and He did what He saw. Likewise those who dwell in the Secret Place of The Most High see what their Father is doing and act accordingly. Unfortunately there are many believers that are afraid of the enemy right now. And sadly are lashing out at those that are bold and have no fear as the Lord commanded Joshua multiple times:
“Haven’t I ordered you, ‘Be strong, be bold’? So don’t be afraid or downhearted, because ADONAI your God is with you wherever you go.”
Y'hoshua (Jos) 1:9 CJB
WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
There was a period of time that I believe was allowed by The Lord to bring about His Purposes in His People. Many have responded with fasting, repentance and prayer. For those that have responded I believe revival and awakening, and restoration is coming. I believe that we have a short window in which we must act. I personally believe that this window is until Shavuot (Pentecost).
I believe that the enemy is overstepping and wants to use this situation to rob us of our freedoms. If this is not God’s plan then this can only happen if the people allow it to happen. Repentance, humility and true change can and will bring about a major shift to empower the Body to walk in its rightful authority. As Scripture tells us that those who truly repent and humble themselves - The Lord will forgive, restore, renew and maybe even leave a blessing behind! ( Joel 2 )
The Lord spoke to me two days ago very clearly and said that if the people do not begin exercising their rightful authority, they will lose both their authority and their freedom. I think that we will see a polarization in the body. Those who respond and act and those who don’t. Those who continue to waste their time in slander and attacking others, and those who respond and position themselves in the call of God on their lives for this Great Awakening.
My heart breaks for those who are playing policeman and faultfinding in this hour. They are missing out on an incredible opportunity in The Lord. So let’s be careful how we analyze this situation. Let’s take our authority over the enemy’s schemes as we are clearly instructed by scripture - “I have given you authority to trample on scorpions and serpents” Let us be aware of which parts are of YHVH and which parts are of the devil. Let us use scripture as our foundation of discernment and let us return to our first love.
May we all repent, and humble ourselves before a Holy and Righteous God so that He can lift us up again. May we see a Great Awakening that leads to a massive harvest into the Kingdom.
