After being invited to a church by the pastor, I took up his offer. So here I was under the impression that I was going to hear a really inspiring message that he wanted me to hear.
During the message, a couple of things stuck out to me. The first was this man's claim to love watching the movie Chucky and then use the message of the movie in his sermon (not failing to mention that he just watched the movie the day before).
Now I don't know about you, but me and my household can't sit and watch a movie such as that, which is filled with such filthy language and senseless killing. I thought that this pastor was sending a bad message to his flock, especially the young ones.
Secondy, during his sermon when he mentioned that the angel Gabriel and the Holy Spirit was one and the same, I almost fell down. But oddly, the applause of his flock continued to pour out.
Third and final. Now came time for the altar call. So I started to pray that anyone who did not know the Lord would come forward, but suddenly something in his call struck me. He stated, "And for you with that Jezebel spirit, please come forward and repent."
This awokened me from my prayer. It was then that the Spirit told me that he was referring to me. Well, talk about a fine how-do-you-do.
Now I did not know this man personally, my invitation to visit his church had come via e-mail. Now I don't know if for some strange reason he thought that he was doing a service for the body by challenging the person who he thought was an enemy of the church. Or did he see the titles of my last couple of books and decided to just judge the titles, oppose to reading them and finding out what the message was. Or is it because my ministry has brought reggae music into the church, (a genre of music that is known for promoting herb smoking). But on that note, we carry the Christian flag. Meaning, what man has meant to use for evil, God has used us to show light through it.
Nevertheless, it was obvious that this man was coming at me in the flesh. Even when I walked up to him after the service, just to shake his hand and bid farewell, he appeared to have turned his back towards me when he saw me approaching him. Is it no wonder that my last book was written. It is for these reasons that I gave his church two thumbs down.

Seems to me like HE could have been the one influenced by the Jezebel spirit. At the very least, his Bible scholarship was sloppy, claiming that Gabriel and God were the same. Preachers know that sensational new doctrines sell. But if it's new it can't be true.
This is to be expected in the times we live in bro. Not to worry, like my kids would say'dont mind him', just remember to pray for him that he will know the real truth and do it so he will be trully free.
