And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him:
but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
SUBJECT THE GLOVES ARE COMING OFF!! [PT 10]
When I closed out last month,
as mentioning how, God sees our attitude towards Him, when, after He delivers us from trouble, we go right back in to doing the same things, that got us there, in the first place. The bible tells us that we are like pigs, after they have been cleaned, return back to the mud, or as dogs that return to, and eat their own vomit.
[Prv 26:11-12 (Young's Literal Translation)] As a dog hath returned to its vomit, A fool is repeating his folly. 12 Thou hast seen a man wise in his own eyes, More hope of a fool than of him!
What we have here, is a group of
people, who are, for all intents and purposes, acting worse than fools..Remember, Psa 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
The scripture is saying, a person that doesn't believe there is a God, has a better chance, than someone that knows God, but treats Him like something to be kept out of sight and mind, until needed, like a spare tire.
So, Elijah, after following the correct procedure to call on God, is rewarded, by Him, with Him, displaying His power by not only devouring the sacrifice, and the altar, but, getting rid of the water, as well.
The people, upon seeing this, fall on their knees, and repent.
But, Elijah is not through, yet.
He then tells the people, starting in verse 40, to round up all of these prophets that had been leading them astray, and bring them to him. He then takes them down to a river, and kills all of them.
What we have here, is the actual reality, of what we need to be doing to these poverty pimps [prophets of Baal] today!! Back in the old testament, under the law, they were physically, killed. What this represents, is, after repentance, the people eliminated any negative influence, in their midst. No matter whether it was idols, animals, or people, all had to be destroyed, lest, they rise up, and start the whole thing, over again. You know, in order to get rid of a weed, you have to destroy it, at its root, or it will rise again.
Am I saying that we should round up all these false prophets and preachers, and kill them??
Well, if you would consider all of the millions, upon millions of souls that are now in hell, because of these people, then, killing them would be a fitting punishment, as it was back then.
But, under this age of 'Grace', God, has other means to 'kill' them so to speak. He begins by taking away what they desire most, and that is their money, power and influence. He has His people, to turn away from them. To render them isolated. With their power, and influence over the people gone, they are left to their own devices, to suffer the fate, they have sent others to.
In Heaven, Satan sought to be like God, and was kicked out of the position He had, and from the presence of God. So, after God created man, Satan sought to get back at God by, breaking up the relationship man had with God. All because he, Satan, no longer had what he craved most, and that was the worship, and admiration, of others in Heaven.
Take away their positions with mankind, and you have rendered them, impotent.
But, just like Elijah had to reveal them for who they really were, so to, I, and other evangelists, have to begin to put these false preachers on front street, to reveal them for who they really are.
You see, the bible says, 2Cor 11:13-15 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
God, wants to reveal to us, what these people are doing to us, and that they are not called by Him, to speak in His name. So, how is He going to do this??
He is going to do it by, sending His curses on them, and their families. They are going to be getting sick. They are going to start suffering all sorts of problems. Many of them will start losing their minds, and ending up in asylums.
Perfectly healthy members of their families will begin suffering from diseases, that will seem to have come, out of nowhere. Strokes, heart attacks, diabetes, paralyzing afflictions, scandals, and the like, for which, there will be no remedy.
Some of you might be saying, I am going too far. Oh really?? How am I going too far, if I am saying what God, wants said??
You see, in order for God to prove Himself to us, He needs someone to proclaim what He is getting ready to do, so that the people will know who is behind, what happens. Before God sent the plagues on Egypt, He had Moses announce what was going to happen, before it happened. That way, Pharaoh would know, it was not by some freak accident in nature, that these things happened. But rather a designed action, by God.
Many times, God will not move, without someone, speaking the Word first. Most preachers are good at speaking 'good things', and that is fine. However, when it comes down to addressing God's coming wrath, they are all of a sudden, as silent as a mouse. The reason being, if they attributed the problems this nation is facing, to His wrath, then, the people would want to know just what it is, they are doing, that warrants His wrath. And that is something they don't want to do, because they would have to admit that they have been leading the people astray, by claiming our problems, are because of men.
God is getting ready to shine the Light on those that falsely do, and say things in His name, and the people will know them, because they will be running for cover.
These people, are not only defiling themselves, and other people, but they are defiling the Church, the Body of Christ. Not to mention, that they are openly mocking, and presenting a false image of Him, to the people. That, my friend, is blasphemy.
But, once again, in order for man to know that God is behind, things that are causing so much grief and despair, God sends His anointed forward, to speak the Word, of warning, and wrath.
Do you remember what happened on 9/11??
If you will read messages that I posted on this ministry's website, in tracts, and newsletters, I had been giving warnings about what would happen to this nation, because of all the iniquity, this nation, and its people, were guilty of. And, by the way, I was not the only one. Jimmy Swaggert, Billy Graham, R. W. Schambach, John Hagee, Rod Parsley, and many others, were warning America, to turn from their wickedness.
What we got from them in return, was scorn, laughter, mocking, persecution, and hatred.
Then, it happened.
All of a sudden, people were shocked that something like this could happen to us.
With all of our technology, power, security, and the like, some average people, managed to do things that, had anyone in their right minds, would notice, like men taking flying lessons, and not wanting to learn how to land a plane, only how to fly it, would have raised suspicion. They were able to do this, because, God, blinded them from what was happening.
You see, we have to realize this. When God is going to do something, He will blind the eyes of those that pride themselves on being able to prevent bad things from happening. And, He will do it in such a way, as
to make them look like complete idiots.
You see what the response was from the people, after the fact, when, preachers said, 'it was God's wrath on this nation??' Once again, the laughter, scorn, ridicule, and hate were deafening. Late night comedians, cracked jokes about us. And, leading the charge were, guess who?? The poverty pimps. The Jesse Jacksons, the Al Sharptons, and other black leaders, that wear the title of Reverend.
They are now going to pay a price, for not taking heed to the signs of the times, the warnings, and falsely representing themselves as God's messengers.
As I was writing this series, I noticed that one of these people's son, who happens to be a congressman, had to be hospitalized, because of severe depression. A perfectly healthy individual, suddenly, disappearing from view, and being found in need of a mental health professional. This person, is one who consistently attacks those of us, that stand for what Christ says, as being some type of lunatics. Now look who is having mental problems. Let me remind you of what happened to Nebuchadnezzar, when God turned him in to a wild animal, for a time, because of his treatment of God's people[Dan. 4:32 – 34]
If one were to study the bible, in earnest, they would see, that everything that is happening in the world today, has been foretold, long before you and I were even thought of.
Yet, most of the ones that are charged with bringing that point out, are being too timid, or blind, to speak on it, and that is a mistake, on their part. Because, Eze 33:2-6 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: 3. If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; 4. Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. 5. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. 6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.
Did you notice the terminology, 'When I bring the sword upon a land,'?
It is not a matter of 'IF', but, 'WHEN!' And I am saying, the 'WHEN' , is now. With everything that is going wrong in this nation, the people are looking to politicians, to solve a problem that can only be solved by God.
Yet, once again, the poverty pimps, are standing up, to defy God, by making Him irrelevant, saying it is the Republicans, that are the problem. They, along with the 'religious right' are simply trying to scare you.
In closing, the warning has been issued. The trumpet has, and is being sounded, what is your response going to be?? There only 2 ways to go. Which one will you choose?? Whatever happens to you, and your family, after this, is totally on you. I will close, next month.
