The Restoration of the True Prophet

prophetsIt was July 15, 2009, while on our annual family vacation at the beach, that I was given the first of a series of dreams that week about the state of church and Christ’s bride.

The first thing revealed to me was a dream about the condition of the ministry gift of prophet.

 Journal Entry: Dream – Restoration Required – 7/15/2009
I was in an office consisting of four separate rooms; I knew by the Spirit that the office represented the ministry gift of the prophet. Each room was in various states of disrepair due to a serious lack of care and maintenance. Someone before me had begun renovating several of the rooms but for whatever reason had quit before finishing. In the remodeling process, one of the newly renovated rooms already had large holes in the ceiling caused by rain leaking through the roof damaging the new ceiling and carpet.

The largest room hadn’t been touched; it had a large gap in the wall between the window and ceiling where I could see to the outside. The gap allowed dirt to enter the office covering all the equipment and furniture. Anyone who worked or came into the office would get dirty due to its neglected condition. The office was truly awful, non-functional and a disgrace to the company. I said, “Get the president of the company and he will repair this!” End Journal Entry-

Meaning:
I woke up from the dream pondering what I had seen. By the condition of the office, Holy Spirit was showing me that the current condition of the ministry gift of prophet is in disrepair, unsightly, dysfunctional and dirty to God. It is polluted with dirt and foreign matter which doesn’t belong making it unclean before Him. Obviously, there had been no one performing maintenance on this office for a very long time, even though the office was in daily use. The people, which had previously occupied this office, had tried to renovate it but apparently had gotten discouraged when met with resistance, gave up and acclimated themselves to the existing condition.  They submitted to the system.

This dream was followed by eight more dreams dealing with the condition of the church today and the transition by the Spirit; we’ve entered into the preparation of the bride of Christ.  By Holy Spirit placing this dream first in a series of dreams that followed, tells me that the ministry gift of the prophet must be restored as God purposed it in order for the body of Christ to transition into the time of the preparation of the bride of Christ. Read Preparation of the Bride – The Epoch pt. 1 & Preparation of the Bride – Pt. 2 – Meet With Me

Why must the prophet be restored?
God is restoring the true ministry gift of the prophet to the believers today. Without the authority of the prophet’s voice speaking in the church today, the church is blind to the direction of what God is doing or about to do at a given time. The prophet represents the eye to the body of Christ, God revealed His method in Amos 3:7.

“Surely the Lord GOD does nothing
Unless He reveals His secret counsel
To His servants the prophets.”

The prophet is the watchman on the wall, watching and listening to see what the Lord will say.

Habakkuk 2:1-3
“I will stand on my guard post
And station myself on the rampart;
And I will keep watch to see what He will speak to me,
And how I may reply when I am reproved.
Then the LORD answered me and said,
“Record the vision
And inscribe it on tablets,
That the one who reads it may run.
“For the vision is yet for the appointed time;
It hastens toward the goal, and it will not fail.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
For it will certainly come, it will not delay.”

The way man view things and the way God views things are very different.

Isa 55:9
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.”

The way pastors and teachers view the word is different from the prophet. The pastor/teacher speaks of the expressed or the explained word, the prophet speaks of the illuminated or revealed word.

seer Today, there may be no true prophets operating within the walls of the organized church system. I didn’t say there were no true prophets, but their voice and ministry gift are stifled under the control of man and they aren’t given the opportunity to speak freely. Any true prophet of God would certainly rebuke the division the church system has created in the body of Christ, regardless if it’s denominational or non-denominational.

Turkish proverb: “If you speak the truth when everyone else believes and is practicing the opposite, make sure you are sitting on a very swift horse.”

How does the great revival come?
Holy Spirit has shown me that just as the prophet John the Baptist prepared the way for Christ, first coming so shall it be that the prophet(s) will rise up preaching repentance preparing the way for His second coming. No true revival can be had without the conviction of sin, righteousness and judgment by Holy Spirit. John was purposed and birthed into the Earth and entered into his assigned ministry at the appointed time and so it is with all true prophets.  Their birth is a supernatural event witnessed by those only trusted by God and they have been prepared outside of the sight of man.

John came out of the wilderness speaking not in the synagogues of organized religion of the day, but to whomever would listen. John’s purpose was prophesied in the Old Testament which was to prepare the way of the Lord and so shall it be now that true prophets will seemingly come out of nowhere (the wilderness) speaking to the people warning them to turn from wickedness and bear fruit worthy of repentance. People came out of the synagogues to hear him because John wasn’t allowed into the religious system of the day and so shall it be in these times as well. Most all great revivals occurred outdoors and in the streets.

Matthew 3:2-3
“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”  For this is the one referred to by Isaiah the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make ready the way of the Lord, Make His paths straight!'”

outside the campThe true prophet despises the religious spirit that manifests in organized religion because he sees it for what it is and what it is does to the people of God. He sees the harlotry being committed before God as people pursue self in a religious system which is controlled by a foreign spirit, the Babylon spirit. Escape From Babylon Thus the true prophet or the end-time prophet will operate outside the walls of the church just as John the Baptist. The revival which will come will not take place within the walls of the existing church system. Any move of God in the current church system will be to draw the people away from its control and unto Christ for He is calling forth His bride to come out into an intimate relationship with Him.

But we must remember that the church system has many who are Christ loving, sincere people, who truly have a heart for the things of God. The very leadership that is controlling the sheep is being controlled by the system they serve and don’t even recognize it for what it is.

“Always separate the failure of the system from the hearts of the people in it.” Jake Colsen

When God decides to bring revival, he will bypass the old regime (leadership, structure, theology) and move outside of the Church system. Many will return to the home meetings for intimacy in fellowship just as the early saints gathered.

Luke 5:37-38:
Jesus said it this way; “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins, or else the new wine will burst the wineskins and be spilled, and the wineskins will be ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins…”

(Ez. 34:9-10; Ez. 34:15-16 [NLT]
Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord. This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I now consider these shepherds my enemies, and I will hold them responsible for what has happened to my flock. I will take away their right to feed the flock, and I will stop them from feeding themselves. I will rescue my flock from their mouths; the sheep will no longer be their prey. … I myself will tend my sheep and give them a place to lie down in peace, says the Sovereign Lord. I will search for my lost ones who strayed away, and  I will bring them safely home again. I will bandage the injured and strengthen the weak. But I will destroy those who are fat and powerful. I will feed them, yes—feed them justice!

I was perplexed when I first heard the Lord say to me after this dream, “My bride comes not so much from the church as from the world.” I now understand why Christ spoke the following words.

Matt 22:1-14
“And Jesus answered and spoke to them again in parables, saying,  The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king, who gave a wedding feast for his son.  And he sent out his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding feast, and they were unwilling to come.  Again he sent out other slaves saying, Tell those who have been invited, Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and my fattened livestock are all butchered and everything is ready; come to the wedding feast.   But they paid no attention and went their way, one to his own farm, another to his business, and the rest seized his slaves and mistreated them and killed them.  But the king was enraged and sent his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and set their city on fire. Then he said to his slaves, the wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. Go therefore to the main highways, and as many as you find there, invite to the wedding feast.  And those slaves went out into the streets, and gathered together all they found, both evil and good; and the wedding hall was filled with dinner guests. But when the king came in to look over the dinner guests, he saw there a man not dressed in wedding clothes, and he said to him, Friend, how did you come in here without wedding clothes? And he was speechless.  Then the king said to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and cast him into the outer darkness; in that place there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.”



  • Escape From Babylon

    Journal Entry: Dream-Escape From Babylon

    Date: 1-10-2010 – 3:30 AM

    I saw a man sitting in a chair looking despondent when suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared before him. The man asked, “What are you here for?” The angel responded, “I am here to deliver you from the spirit of Babylon.”

    in prisonThe angel took the man by the hand and immediately they began to soar vertically at a high rate of speed into the air. I could hear demons moaning and shrieking as the angel carried the man upward while ascending through level after level of the demonic Babylonian kingdom.

    As they climbed higher and higher I saw what appeared to be the top of a large dome made of reinforced concrete. The dome had rows of elongated slots which came to a point on the ends making the structure incredibly strong and prison-like. Each slot was filled with darkness and it was an impossible barrier to escape from- without the power of the angel to deliver the man. I heard the man say, “I didn’t even know I was in prison.”  Then the dream ended.

    I believe the man in the dream represented me being delivered from the religious system.

    -End Journal Entry-

    What spirit did the angel come to deliver the man from? It was the spirit of Babylon. The spirit of Babylon is the spirit which rules the world and the church system today. This includes all forms of religions which are made up of countless doctrines, creeds, separatism, denominations and non-denominational churches alike.

    The word church in the Greek word ekklesia which basically means called out ones. It isn’t a church building, it’s believers in Christ.

    The Babylon spirit is carnal mindedness and all that it can divise. The Babylon spirit displays haughtiness, arrogance and the pride of man’s knowledge above God’s knowledge and wisdom. Spiritual Babylon long ago hijacked Christ’s gospel replacing it with the “institutional, organized” church system.

    Ignatius was the third pastor of Antioch (110 A.D) who apparently served under apostle John . Ingatius installed his own believe’s in an attempt to prevent heresies of Gnosticism and Docetism. By doing so Inatius established the Clergy system. He wrote: “Follow your bishop, every one of you, as obediently as Jesus Christ followed the Father. Obey your Clergy too, as you would Apostles; give your deacons the same reverence that you would to a command from God. Make sure no step affecting the Church is ever taken by anyone without the bishop’s sanction. The sole Eucharist you should consider valid is one that is celebrated by the bishop himself, or by some person authorized by him. Where the bishop is to be seen, there let all his people be; just as wherever Jesus Christ is present, we have the Catholic Church. Nor is it permissable to conduct baptism or the Eucharist without the bishop. On the other hand, whatever does have this sanction can be sure of God’s approval too. This is the way to make certain of soundness and validity of anything you do.”

     In the church system people feel safe, sufficient, significant, assured, justified and secure. It gives forth to self-serving, status, position, reputation, security and identity to many all the while the institution itself grows in its power and importance. Many people depend on the church system for their livelihood, significance, preeminence, validation, power and recognition. The man in the dream was imprisoned by the system and didn’t even know it. This is the way millions of God-loving saints are today. They are imprisoned in a church system of man’s making and do not even realize it.

    In fact, I find the comparison of prison and the church system very astute. Prison inmates are under the control of the warden’s rules and regulations just like the many people in the pews today are under the control of leadership’s rules and regulations of man’s own making. There is no freedom for the congregation in the church system today, just like there is no freedom for an inmate in prison. A prisoner doesn’t get to do anything unless someone “lets” him do it. I have heard leadership say, “let the people do this or let them do that.” The word “let” truly indicates control of the congregation and this shouldn’t be! If someone stays in prison long enough they become institutionalized. The same thing happens to people in the church system if they stay in it long enough. They become institutionalized or indoctrinated to what that particular church system believes.

    I have watched the church system for sometime now with all of its organization, orchestration, formats which restrain the free flowing leading of Holy Spirit. However, I have upon a few occasions seen Holy Spirit move within in the confines of a man inspired church system. I had to know from God why Holy Spirit moves when He does.

    Stake in the sandHoly Spirit showed me a picture of a stake driven into the sand high up on a beach. There is was, a lone stake driven in the sand, far away from the surf. The stake represents the church system beliefs, what it is about, its creed, denomination, faith statement, doctrine, identity, etc.  Then I was shown a picture of the ebb and tide of the ocean. The tide comes in and the tide goes back out, this cycle is repeated daily. Occasionally the surf is so stirred that the waves come up far enough to reach the stake only to eventually recede back out to sea.  The Lord said, “I move upon my people like this in their personal time and occasionally during a meeting to soak them in My presence and to draw them unto Me, to teach them to follow after the ebb and tide of My Spirit. When I move on a congregation, I am not validating the church system as the religious think. I want to draw people out of it and unto Me, I want them to learn to follow the ebb and tide of My Spirit.”

    scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” Gen 11:3-5 NAS

    When meditating about the dream of the angel delivering the man from Babylon, I asked the Lord if He had a scriptural example of what I had seen in the dream and immediately I was reminded of when Peter was in prison and the angel of the Lord appeared to deliver him. Once Peter was delivered from prison, he went to his fellowship made up of the people praying for him. What spirit was behind the imprisonment of Peter? Could the answer be the spirit of Babylon? Most certainly because the Babylonian spirit operates through the flesh (carnal man) and wants approval from man! Herod demonstrated both in Acts 12:1-3.

    Observe the spirit of Babylon in operation in this verse:

     “Now about that time Herod the king laid hands on some who belonged to the church (GK. ekklesia means “called out ones”), in order to mistreat them.  And he had James the brother of John put to death with a sword.  And when he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter also.” Acts 12:1-3 NAS

    “For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” Rom 8:14-15 NAS

    When I heard the Lord say to me a few months ago, “My bride comes not so much from the church as from the world,” I was somewhat taken back by this statement as to what He meant. I didn’t understand then what has now been made so clear to me now after much prayer, study and revelations.

    The reason the bride must come out from the institutional church system is that the church system is incapable of preparing the bride of Christ. It can only institutionalize its congregants to be dependant upon the church system. In fact its interest is truly to grow the institution’s power and influence and not grow the people. In a recent Barna Group survey, 9 out of 10 pastors were surveyed and said that the church (system) was full of babies. However, each pastor commented that they had no babies in their own congregation.

    The Babylonian spirit is a spirit that sets out to extinguish faith with false doctrine which leads man into works. For when faith dies there is no faith which leads people to ascend to God in their own way. It disrupts the plan and purposes of God by its influence of a non-God spirit.

    The Babylonian spirit influences ministries to do works such as, let us build, let us make a name for ourselves, let us do great projects, let us be like God. It replaces the faith with works and does not follow nor seek the leading or direction of Holy Spirit.

    escapeThe spirit of Babylon is found in the story of the Tower of Babel. “ And they said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name; lest we be

    “So Peter was kept in the prison, but prayer for him was being made fervently by the church to God.  And on the very night when Herod was about to bring him forward, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains; and guards in front of the door were watching over the prison.  And behold, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared, and a light shone in the cell; and he struck Peter’s side and roused him, saying, “Get up quickly.” And his chains fell off his hands.  And the angel said to him, “Gird yourself and put on your sandals.” And he did so. And he said to him, “Wrap your cloak around you and follow me.”  And he went out and continued to follow, and he did not know that what was being done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision.  And when they had passed the first and second guard, they came to the iron gate that leads into the city, which opened for them by itself; and they went out and went along one street; and immediately the angel departed from him.  And when Peter came to himself, he said, “Now I know for sure that the Lord has sent forth His angel and rescued me from the hand of Herod and from all that the Jewish people were expecting.”  And when he realized this, he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John who was also called Mark, where many were gathered together and were praying.” Acts 12:5-12 NAS

    Unlike the dream, Peter knew he was in prison but the man in the dream didn’t realize his imprisonment. Not knowing one is in prison is a far greater plight to a person because he is blind to his real circumstance.

    brokenIt you are within the confines of the church system you need to stop and take “inventory” and weigh truthfully what has been written here before God and trust Him to show you truth. God has appointed some to work within in the confines of the church system for a season only for reasons known to God and the believer. Perhaps it is to observe and learn up close and personal what the church system is really about. My heart is for the people to be delivered from the prison of the church system and to be brought into a personal and intimate relationship in Jesus Christ.

    “And as for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.” 1 John 2:27-28 NAS

    Bringing the bride of Christ out of the church system can only be done by the Spirit of the Lord because the church system is a stronghold in her mind through years of indoctrination. God has to take the church system out of the bride before she can ever be free and be presented to Christ as His bride.

    By the revelation of the Lord, we are in the time in which the focus of the Lord is to “prepare” His bride. That’s it! Most in leadership of the church system won’t recognize the paradigm shift that has occurred in the Spirit, thus they will continue on in the confines of the system. As in the first century, the existing religious system (Pharisees, Sadducees, etc) didn’t recognize the time of the Lord’s visitation and so shall it be now.

    The dream is a continuing theme which Holy Spirit keeps giving me to warn those who will listen and heed the warning of the committing adultery with the spirit of Babylon (church system).

    “ And when He approached, He saw the city and wept over it,  saying, “If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes.  “For the days shall come upon you when your enemies will throw up a bank before you, and surround you, and hem you in on every side,  and will level you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not recognize the time of your visitation.  

     And He entered the temple and began to cast out those who were selling,  saying to them, “It is written, ‘And My house shall be a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a robbers’ den.’ 

     And He was teaching daily in the temple; but the chief priests and the scribes and the leading men among the people were trying to destroy Him,  and they could not find anything that they might do, for all the people were hanging upon His words”. Luke 19:41-48 NAS

    “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, that you may not participate in her sins and that you may not receive of her plagues;  for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.” Rev 18:4-5 NAS



  • The Spirit of Dagon

    Update: – In the night after I published the blog below exposing the Dagon spirit, God allowed me to encounter the Dagon spirit as if to confirm its existenance and power.

    Jounal Entry: 12/18/2009 1:15AM
    I was in a dream where the spirit of Dagon was trying to over power the leadership and the saints. Dagon appeared to be suspended on the wall like a picture. When  I passed by it I felt its power and I fought to resist it because it is powerful. Dagon can subdue  nations, governments, religious minded souls and indeed wants to for the purpose of warring against God’s people. Right at the peak of resisting the spirit’s power I heard three powerfully loud knocks in the spirit that came from the direction of under my pillow, directly to my head, startling me awake at 1:15 AM. I had just been rescued and defended by Holy Spirit from the power of Dagon. The reason behind this is I just released a new blog exposing the Dagon spirit and it is obvious that the evil Dagon didn’t like it. This isn’t the first time I’ve encountered a ruler spirit. They rule over cities, regions or nations and each encounter has ended with Holy Spirit coming to my aid. I love Holy Spirit!

    The Spirit of Dagon

    I received a phone call from a brother in Christ one afternoon; he named a preacher and wanted to know what I knew about him. I told the brother that I didn’t know anything about the preacher nor had I heard of him, but I would check and see what he was preaching and let him know if it seemed safe to listen to him.

    dagonI searched YouTube and quickly found his sermon part 1-8 on the “Ecstasy of God.” I began watching and listening as the man took terminology of the drug / alcohol world and incorporated it into his sermon. Repeatedly he demonstrated that “if you do this” or “you do that” in your spiritual walk with Holy Spirit you would “get high and God would promote you to the next level in the supernatural presence of God.” He used terms like the godka of God, the Crown Royal, the Jehovajuanna, Ecstasy of God, drunken glory of God and so forth in his message.  As he taught, he walked around acting like he was high on God.

    The large auditorium where he was preaching appeared to be filled with many young people who were taking notes and listening intently as he carried on and on with his drug phrased preaching. He mentioned many well known classic saints from the 1600s who had many supernatural experiences but failed to mention that their experiences came out of the death of self and an enduring love relationship with Jesus Christ. Such saints as Brother Lawrence, Madame Guyon, Saint John of the Cross and Saint Teresa of Ávila were not seeking an experience; they were deeply in a love relationship with Jesus Christ. The preacher’s message glorifies the seeking of God for the experience rather than seeking God for relationship.

    It was very disturbing to me and I began to ask God to show me what spirit was behind this man’s preaching. After continued persistence to understand,  while in quiet time the next morning, I heard the Lord say one word, “Dagon!”

    It is the spirit of Dagon; Dagon was the principal deity of the Philistines and was imported to the region from Babylon. What Dagon looked like is truly not known to us today nor is it important; however, what the Dagon represents does matter. Dagon was primarily worshiped in Gaza and Ashkelon regions as the God of war. This region was known to have many giants in it. The spirit of Dagon is at war with the saints and wants to subdue the holy things of God.

    “Now the lords of the Philistines assembled to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god, and to rejoice, for they said, “Our god has given Samson our enemy into our hands.” Judg 16:23 NAS

    “ The Philistines took the ark of God and brought it to the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon.  When the Ashdodites arose early the next morning, behold, Dagon had fallen on his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD. So they took Dagon and set him in his place again.  But when they arose early the next morning, behold, Dagon had fallen on his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD. And the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off on the threshold; only the trunk of Dagon was left to him.  Therefore neither the priests of Dagon nor all who enter Dagon’s house tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod to this day.” 1 Sam 5:2-5 NAS

    The Philistines captured the ark of God and placed it in a submissive place in their temple of worship before Dagon as a gratitude offering and as proof their god was greater than the Hebrew God. God showed the Philistines that their god Dagon couldn’t stand over Him. God will not be manipulated by man; God will not be subservient to man’s will or his desire. God will not be reduced to a crazed drug culture comparison of being bonged out into drunken glory all the time.

    people bibleThe presence of God is wonderful. A new believer will encounter it for the first time and their flesh may shake, spasm or fall-out during the experience. However, the more time one spends soaking in the presence of the Lord, the more adjusted you become, in other words, the anointing that knocked me down yesterday will not knock me down today. How can we ever minister under a strong anointing if we are prone to falling-out or rolling on the floor? When we come into the presence of the Lord, we should be eternally changed. God can over power any human with His unveiled holiness; just read the book of Daniel to get an idea.

    Dan 8:17
    “So he came near to where I was standing, and when he came I was frightened and fell on my face.”

    Dan 8:27
    “ Then I, Daniel, was exhausted and sick for days. Then I got up again and carried on the king’s business; but I was astounded at the vision, and there was none to explain it.” NAS

    Know that yesterday’s miracle; yesterday’s manifestation doesn’t carry me through today trials and tribulations. I must have a real relationship with Him and a fresh anointing of grace each day to fulfill what he has called me to do. I love the tangible presence of God but I don’t seek God for it. I seek God because I want to be known of Him and have an intimate relationship with Him.

    Matt 7:22-23
    “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’  And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’”

    There are many false and counterfeit anointings in the world. Some pulpits are occupied by imposters who preach under a false anointing and do not lead people to a relationship with Christ but rather to themselves and the church system. How can they lead someone to a place they haven’t been themselves?

    In my early days after repenting and rededicating my life to Christ, I experienced His Holy anointing that would settle on me so heavily that it was awkward for me to stand at times. These experiences came out of an ever-growing, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, not from seeking the experience. He was washing me, He was soaking me in His love, He was filling me full of His Holy anointing and immersing me in the Holy Spirit.

    These experiences weren’t about growing in Christ as much as establishing a love relationship with the holiness of Christ. It was out of the excitement of getting to know Jesus that these experiences kept coming on me. After a period of several months the season ended and God began to grow me up in the things of Christ. I would never mature in the things of Christ if I was seeking Him for the feelings of His presence. He purposely will remove them to teach us to walk by faith and not by our feelings.

    We mustn’t seek experiences or the “high” but we seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and then all these things are added unto us. To seek God for any reason, other than to know Him and be known of Him, is no different than the crowd who followed Jesus for the fish and loaves.

    Matt 6:33-34
    “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you.  Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”  NAS

    Dagon is the spirit behind this man’s teaching and yet I can honestly say that I felt a sincere love for the man who was preaching. He did not set out to deliberately deceive people, in all honesty and truthfulness, he is deceived himself. He has been beguiled by the spirit of Dagon and doesn’t even know it. Deceived people don’t know they’re deceived, if they knew, well they wouldn’t be deceived. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines deceived as, “to cause to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid.” We need to pray that his eyes be opened to truth and that Satan’s kingdom no longer blinds him from the truth.

    The Dagon spirit is at war against God and His saints and wants to take them captive. It is fleshly, sensual and filled with the acts of human accomplishments. This Dagon spirit wants to make Holy Spirit respond to the believer based on seeking the experience just like an addict which seeks to get high from taking a drug. An addict isn’t seeking relationship with a drug but only to get high. I don’t doubt the man is under the influence and is feeling high but the high is not coming from Holy Spirit but from the Dagon spirit.

    Unfortunately, in these last days many false teachers will emerge in the body of Christ. They will most likely have had a history of teaching sound doctrine, but now due to impure motives and unresolved character issues, they have been deceived by false a anointing.

    False Teachers

    false teachers“But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.  And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned;  and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.” 2 Peter 2: 1-4

    “ For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires;  and will turn away their ears from the truth, and will turn aside to myths.  But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” 2 Tim 4:3-6 NAS

    Deception

    “ See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.” Col 2:8 NAS

    “ And then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming;  that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,  and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truthso as to be saved.  And for this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they might believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.” 2 Thess 2:8-12 NAS

    “But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.  You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them;  and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.  All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.” 2 Tim 3:13-17 NAS

    “ To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled.  They profess to know God, but by their deeds they deny Him, being detestable and disobedient, and worthless for any good deed”. Titus 1:15-16 NAS

    I pray you will be studying the word and praying for discernment in the things of God.

    Be Blesses In Your Service To Him,
