False “prophetic” movement

28 08 2011

   It amazes me how many people “run all over the world”, to get a “prophetic word” for themselves. Often you hear of people who have been ministered to “prophetically”, and generally the “prophecy” goes something like this, “I see that you have been called to be a very influential person. I see that you will travel extensively. You will speak into governmental leaders lives. I see great wealth……… you have a miracle annointing on your life……… i see great crowds of people listening to you as you preach…….” Does this sound familiar?

The “religious” church has left her first love of Jesus Christ and has wandered away from her first works, and doctrine. She has generally turned inward and focused upon the flesh. The Prophetic ministry has done the same. The flesh has become the focus of prophecy. People are crying out for their flesh to be ministered to. “Give me more..”

The apostle John saw what Jesus called the “Jezebelian Priesthood” in Revelation…

Revelation 2:20 MKJV But I have a few things against you because you allow that woman Jezebel to teach, she saying herself to be a prophetess, and to cause My servants to go astray, and to commit fornication, and to eat idol-sacrifices.

This is a warning to the church saying that such ministries seduce Christians, encouraging and building up a faith that profits the flesh, but not the spirit.

“The Jezebelian Priesthood” is a priesthood of the flesh, it follows a Jesus that speaks into people’s lives about their personal needs, lack, and fears. Those who buy into this continue to fall victim to the psychology of their own emotions. “Prophets” prophesy to relieve their conscience of guilt, to dissuade their emotions, and to restructure their thinking. These things are all signs of the Jezebelian Priesthood, and not of the priesthood of Jesus Christ.

Jesus knew that false prophets would arise to speak in His name and that Satan would use them to turn away the hearts of many; for He said,

Matthew 7:22-23 MKJV Many will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works? (23) And then I will say to them I never knew you! Depart from Me, those working lawlessness!

Here again we see so clearly how Jesus, Himself, said there would be those who would prophesy in His name and cast out devils and do miracles in His name and claim to know Him, but He does not know them. That has to be the most earth-shaking and devastating thing you could ever hear from the mouth of God about your faith; “I never knew you, you said you were prophesying in My name, but you were merely speaking what came up from your own heart, all the while working with Satan’s knowledge, with seducing spirits, not Mine.”

This pseudo priesthood is called “the priesthood of the flesh” because it centers on praising God by the wisdom of the world and through the works of the flesh.

Christians have been vulnerable to Satan. He excites our passions and ignites Godless dreams and visions, and then keeps us busy with these meaningless imaginations.

Makes you think doesn’t it?
