DID THUS SAITH THE LORD?”
Only the Holy Ghost knows how many in Christiandom who claim to be prophets by declaring , “thus saith the Lord,” or “God told me,” or “I was led in the spirit”—are really the messengers of Satan sent to control your life in God. Today, in the 21st century, churches are filled with soothsayers and charismatic hype masters whose message from the pulpit is merely a gratification of the flesh. There is a seductive spirit of divination sweeping across churches of all persuasions, seeking to control the lives of the un-suspecting. Laity leaders serve as divination foot-soldiers, forearmed “with a word” to maintain the power and authority of those in the pulpits. Demons help out also as they whisper into congregant’s ears, “give a $1000 dollars.”
Recently, a former client, completely delivered of a serious mental health disorder in record time by the power of God, was approached by a member of his former church. Although his progress is sheerly remarkable, the former church member approached him with a “thus saith the Lord.” “I had a vision of you and I saw you have a python snake attached to your spirit. . Are you okay? Since you left the church, we’ve all had concerns about you. We’ve all been praying for your return to the fold.”
In mentoring, my former client casually mentioned this but I could tell that he was shaken by it. I yelled through the telephone
“NO! STOP. THAT WORD CAME FROM THE HEART OF A DEMON ASSIGNED TO STEAL YOUR RECOVERY FROM YOU! DO NOT RECEIVE IT!!!!”
Certainly, professing Christians without knowledge may seem to have good intentions. Yet, when you find yourself in bondage to what they claim God has said about you to them, what does it matter whether they had either good or bad intentions??? The results are the same. Your spirit has been penetrated and the enemy has successfully planted his desires into YOUR spirit to cause you confusion and ultimate harm!!!!
Take it from someone who knows. I am well insulated by God from face to face contact with people who allow demons to use them as messengers of Satan to control my life . I have even learned how to block out my dreams. So when the enemy cannot “reach me,” he’ll make a phone call or send an email.
Now I know that’s right! I have received “thus saith the Lords” in emails and over the telephone on quite a few occasions.
Now when I personally receive “a word” about someone else, I have learned to “keep my mouth shut.” Control freaks can’t do this. They are under too much compulsion to blurt out knowledge obtained by supernatural means to prove that “they are anointed of God.”
Here is how divination works. The enemy has difficulty “putting a spell on you” unless he first informs YOU about it. Then he will use your self induced anxieties, doubts and fears to bring his plans about in YOUR life. In other words, devils and demons are skilled at making YOU your own worst enemy.
You see, they can’t “do what they do,” without your cooperation and consent.
In order to control our lives, the enemy has to “plant his desires” into our spirits. Recently, someone sent me a message. She had a vision that witches were trying to bring harm on me because of my website and that they were attempting to put a spell on me. I didn’t scold her. Wouldn’t make any sense cause the damage was already done. At that very moment, I was involved in a situation with someone who had “witchcraft in her background.” So of course, my eyebrow was raised but I didn’t panic. I was just extra careful and observant.
The thing to do is to “watch and pray.” Keep your mouth shut until the crisis, if there is one, has passed. Don’t let the enemy use YOU to plant fear into someone that you care about. Pray and rest in God. If God showed her that someone was praying against me, then the Holy Ghost was calling her to pray. Fallen angels are extremely skilled at using friends, the people even of your own household, to speak evil into your life. So wisdom is certainly necessary. I learned the hard way to “be slow to speak.”
Therefore, when someone comes to you with a “thus saith the Lord” and it does not compute with you, you must become verbally aggressive. I do it regularly. People may think that I am crazy but I am quick to get animated and boldly declare, “no. I rebuke that. I don’t receive that.” Sometimes I get worst and like the Lord, I’ll speak directly to that demon and say “get thee behind me.” I don’t care what people think. It is too important that I guard my spirit.
YOU MUST DO THE SAME!
