Powerless Preachers and Showman Charlatans
I Kings 22:23; Mark 16:17; Matt.10:8;
Rom.11:8; I Corinthians chapter 14; Heb.13:8

I the Lord am disgusted by two gross evils going on in the camp of the saints: denying My supernatural power altogether and following after crazy demonic manifestations not taught as doctrine in the Word of God. The so-called Leadership is filling their baskets full while denying My power. Instead of seeking Me as to the reason power to heal and perform miracles seems to be absent in their midst, these leaders give My sheep the impression that I am a has-been, just a historical god of power who USED TO part the Red Sea, multiply meager supplies and raise the dead. People don’t need to just believe that I made the Lame Man to walk 2000 years ago and that’s the end of the story. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever. That’s what My Word plainly states. These signs shall follow THEM THAT BELIEVE: In My Name shall they raise the dead (sometimes the spiritually dead through witnessing), but there WILL be occasions when I want those who died prematurely to return to life, or come out of a NDE or coma. In My Name shall My people heal the sick and cast out devils. Satan HOPES you don’t take THAT one seriously! Where did Jesus put an expiration date on these precious promises to His Church?

Preachers use the excuse of absentee miracles to justify their theological theories about why there can’t be real TANGIBLE, VISIBLE miracles today. They twist obscure passages in My Word to make them line up with what is most comfortable for them to teach. When that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away, etc. But have any of you reached perfection in your spirit, soul and bodies? Is My Church already everything I long for it to be? Are you already living in a perfect environment where satan isn’t causing trouble, and the Son of God is already in charge of world governments? You who are filled with My Spirit were filled in order to be equipped to operate in the supernatural as I lead you. Prayer in the Spirit works wonders. The spiritual gifts are still for today and badly needed to strengthen My Body to stand in these evil last days before My appearing in the clouds to take you all home.

Spiritualizing miracles and promises of the Bible away is an easy, lazy cop-out, and a cloak for doubt and unbelief. Where does Paul the apostle or any other biblical apostle EVER say that part of the Church Age is supposed to be dried up and powerless, while the first part he lived in is supposed to be full of My glory and demonstration of power?

Preachers throw the baby out with the bathwater. Yes, there are TERRIBLE abuses of the so-called supernatural in the “church world” and satan counts on this to make My people reluctant to accept the True Works of the Spirit in their midst. And such abuses make REAL Biblical miracle doctrines a laughingstock to nominal believers and the world. I am furious about being painted as powerless by unbelieving preachers who don’t really miss My power because they’re already making a comfortable living from dead religion. But I am also angry about the FAKE miracle services going on today, conducted by bizarre creeps who bring an aura of fascination and draw crowds to take their money through “giving them a good show.” And that’s exactly what these carnal productions are, religious peep shows. And throughout the process, people are manipulated into giving more than they can afford to part with. The development of the Fruits of My Spirit is frustrated in their souls as the life of the old man of sin is rekindled by these charlatans. Jesus was not a greedy, money-obsessed Man. The Name it and claim it rot taught by these fake miracle crusaders appeals to people’s greed and desire to get materially rich in this life. The holy fruit of Self-control is frustrated as these religious movers and shakers teach My people to howl like wolves and make all sorts of crazy sounds and motions to “bring the power down”. As money is exalted and glorified in these meetings, it becomes a substitute god in people’s hearts and they are enticed by these wolves in sheep’s clothing to commit spiritual adultery and idolatry against Me. As these tattooed weirdos and expensively dressed gurus draw attention to themselves on glitzy stages, they steal the glory from Christ Jesus Who redeemed them. That is the spirit of Antichrist (instead of Christ), not the Holy Spirit.

Am I not good enough for you anymore, O foolish sheep of mine? I will never share My glory with ANYONE. Repent immediately lest I turn My back on your prayers when you follow the silly instructions given you by these false prophets. No, I WON’T bless their red prayer rags. No I WON’T be present in their meetings. If this persists I’ll even allow a lying spirit of deception to come in to teach you a lesson. If that doesn’t shake you up to induce you to repent and return to Me, then I’ll just leave you to your own devices completely and allow you to reap the disappointing fruits of this deception, till you WAKE UP and are forced to admit that you’ve been following after strange spirits and strange fire which definitely comes from an evil spirit, not the true Spirit of God.

When you hear that clown ringing his dinner bell calling “come and get IT,” then ask yourself what he means by “IT”!

2 Thes.2:11: And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
Verse 12: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
