Church Leaders Shut the Door on Jesus!
An astonishing and shocking thing
The teachers promote falsity, and church leaders rule by their own power,
but My people don’t care
(Jer 5:30,31, paraphrased).
I reported in Carried Along By The
Spirit (p 7) that many church leaders, evangelists and preachers have
slipped from subservience to Christ and listening to His Spirit, into the
trap of reliance upon self. This is a devastating fall!
Jesus cries out:
You have forsaken your First Love.
Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you
did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your
lampstand from its place (Rev 2:4,5, NIV).
A lampstand represents the ability
which God gives through His Spirit to ‘light up’ the Word of God – to make
it understandable, to preach it accurately, and to convey spiritual
enlightenment to others.
Testimony to the historical accuracy of
Jesus’ prophetic warning is with us to this day! We see the ‘Christian
Church’, highly divided, unable to agree on basic biblical issues and
teachings, and heresies without number scattering on the winds! This all
began when men got lifted up, dispensed with humility, forgot to consult the
Divine Architect and didn’t realise they were going it alone. Self-will
and pride are the roots of this disobedience.
The same self-will and pride are
flourishing today. I don’t just mean in the world; I mean in the Church! And
these evil qualities of spirit have brought horrendous spiritual devastation
in the body of Christ!
God has given us dream after dream
(Numbers 12:6) over the years revealing, in symbol, the awful spiritual
state of the body of Christ, especially in the West, because of this denial
of humility and Christ-centredness. He holds the leaders mainly responsible!
What God Said In Dreams
A shocking dream of a naked woman
depicted one particular church organisation – the Worldwide Church of God
(WCG). But there are other
churches and ministries which are similarly depraved.
July 1997. M. The WCG's Moral Depravity!
Dream of a woman whose upper torso was tattooed all over with a map of
I could hardly believe it, but they used her bare torso to do a weather
forecast on TV, pointing out the areas which would have rain or whatever.
Meaning: I thought at first that this was a graphic portrayal of the
depraved immoral state of affairs in the nation and expressed on TV.
Producers stop at nothing to use seductive women to market whatever they
want, even in the seemingly harmless areas of viewing! But, on 26th July, a
lady staying with us was awoken at 6 am and given some strong prophetic
words that this meaning was incorrect. She was told that it portrayed the
vile, lewd spiritual state of affairs in the WCG. They were pointing out
changes that were occurring in various areas, just as a weather forecaster
uses a map to point out changes in weather patterns in certain areas of the
The Bible uses sexual metaphors for
E.g. Rev 2:20 – Jezebel, by her
teaching, lures My servants into fornication...
Rev 2:15 – Pergamum was being seduced
into fornication. Fornication is a metaphor for entertaining wrong teaching
– satanic heresy! It lures its victims into a relationship with the devil,
taking them away from the holy One (Rev 3:7).
Rev 3:18 – Laodicea is spiritually
naked. The Church has suffered this satanic onslaught from the outset.
Apostasy is taking its lethal toll today! The WCG is one recent victim.
The WCG produces a magazine called
The Plain Truth. It is not the plain truth, however! It’s a deceitful
sham. Its glossy marketing is intended to pull the wool over eyes of
readers. It’s a masquerade – an attempt to gain acceptance and acclaim while
denying truth that is not palatable to the majority. The Plain Truth
promotes an anything-goes philosophy of ‘Christian’ humanism, a theology of
broad orthodoxy, and shuts out divine revelation that would provide any
correction to its arrogant humanly-defined course. The WCG is an abomination
It’s not alone. There are many other
churches which subscribe to similar watered-down teaching. Their motives are
to please people, not God. And their agenda in winning converts is as
corrupt as was the Pharisees’ in Jesus’ time. They are deceived that God is
pleased by their approach in trying to ‘win’ people ‘to Christ’.
You travel land and sea to win one
proselyte and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as
yourselves. Woe to you, blind guides....! (Matt 23:15,16).
How does God try to wake up His people
to such spiritual abuse and corruption? Prophets are His last means when
they are not listening properly to His personal promptings via His Spirit.
This is why Jesus’ diatribe in Matthew 23 climaxed in:
Serpents, brood of vipers! How can
you escape the condemnation of hell? Therefore, indeed, I send you
prophets... (Matt 23:34).
But they reject them! They will not
listen! Self-will and pride shut Jesus out! These dreams from God depict the
August 2001. M. A lot of people were gathered to worship God.
There was more to this dream, but one aspect was this: A group of people
were worshipping God. They stood to praise, some raised their arms. Then
they sat down and stood again to praise. There was a woman in this
group who was naked. She had no shame about her state, in fact she
was proud to be naked. This shocked some people, and amazed me. I peered
through the crowd, intent on seeing this peculiar woman. In a gap through
the gathering I caught a glimpse of this individual, totally unashamedly
exposing her breasts, raising her arms to God in praise! I was astonished.
Meaning: This depicts a person who came to visit us yesterday. It is a
man, not a woman, but he was portrayed as a woman, because men as well as
women are called to be part of the Bride of Christ. This person received our
literature, but he didn’t respond as God wanted.
attends a Sunday-observing church and ‘praises’ God there. He has not put on
the clothing God gave him through our ministry teachings, one of which is
keeping the Sabbath, observing God’s holy days. To God, this is as
ridiculous and as perverse as the woman’s behaviour in the dream. She was
proud to be naked. This man’s religious pride keeps him from moving forward.
There are many like him. They stubbornly refuse to accept the fulness of
teaching God is offering them and prefer to go naked.
April 2001. M. The lewdness and nakedness of the Church.
A woman was talking with some other people (depicting her mingling with
society). She had a gown half covering her body, but it was quite clear that
she was lewd. She was exposing herself carelessly. Then something happened
and her gown came right off and she was totally naked. But, the astonishing
thing was that she didn’t care! One other thing God conveyed was that she
was quite skinny.
Meaning: A pictorial representation of most of the Church at this time.
It is spiritually careless, morally lewd, and undernourished. It needs more
of the truth of God.
Pride and Prejudice
You know, the problem with many church
leaders is that their pride and self-will cause them to be prejudiced
against ‘new’ truth which God sends via His prophets to wake up the Church.
They resent that because they want to be in charge.
They don’t mind the Holy Spirit being
in charge when their agenda is not challenged or their motives are not
exposed, but when God sends a prophet in from outside to do the Holy
Spirit’s bidding – which is corrective in such instances – they don’t like
it. Most resist and rebel!
We have met that response so often that
it’s like a worn out tape-recording to repeat the outcome.
I wrote to Derek Prince Ministries in
America in 2002, sending them input from the Spirit of truth, mostly
contained in ‘our’ dream diary. The hostility and fear in their prejudicial
response was glaring!
They didn’t sign or hand-write
anything. They merely replied on a blank white page with these words typed
in underlined bold capitals:
REMOVE FROM YOUR MAILING LIST
DO NOT SEND ANY MORE MAILINGS
WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN YOUR NEWS-LETTER OR MINISTRY.
There was no love in the reply. They
quenched the Holy Spirit. This sort of wrong attitude is rampant!
The Evangelical Alliance
When I wrote to the Evangelical
Alliance, from one of their offices in the UK I received this curt response
(most don’t bother to reply!):
I would be very grateful if you
would delete us from your mailing lists.
I did as they requested, but also
In response to your letter of 1st
November, attached, I would ask “Why?”
Are you (I mean those on whose
behalf you have written) not interested in what God is about to do in this
land? Do you not care to be part of the revival coming to Scotland outside
the confines of the Evangelical Alliance?
The misguided, humanly-defined aim
of the Evangelical Alliance –
encapsulated in the slogan “uniting to change society” – is unbiblical. Have
your leaders never read what Jesus said that He didn’t come to change this
world? Had His Kingdom been of this world, He and His own would fight to
establish it and radically reform society. He could do that – if it were in
His plans for this time – but He has not opted to do so. That is on His
agenda for the Millennium (Rev 20:4-6, Is 2, etc.). For now, His message is
a witness against those who defy His will – including many who claim to
follow Him! – and He lets them rebel. But they won’t be in the final ‘award
ceremony’ (Matt 22:11-14).
The dismissive response from your
office is characteristic of this church age of Laodicea. Recently I had
cause to write to Derek Prince Ministries in the USA, for the same reason.
What I wrote to them may well apply to those who have instructed you to
respond in like fashion, so I include that response here for those in your
office who likewise reject the prophets Jesus has sent:
I recently sent you a copy of our
November 2002 Newsletter, containing dreams which God has given us about
what He is starting to engineer to usher in the Last Revival of which Smith
Wigglesworth prophesied in 1947.
You have rudely and arrogantly
written back that you don’t care to know.
When Jesus spoke to Derek Prince
many years ago, He told him that he would live to see this revival. He is
now an old man and close to dying and the revival is beginning. So, I sent
you prior notification of this, so you could notify your mentor. But you
reply in bold capitals:
PLEASE REMOVE FROM
YOUR MAILING LIST. DO NOT SEND ANY MORE MAILINGS. WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN
YOUR NEWSLETTER OR MINISTRY.
I am not astonished by your
blindness, nor by the alacrity with which you dismiss this input. You might
just as well have said, “Jesus, get stuffed! I’m not bothered by what you
are doing now. What you did before is good enough for me, I don’t want
anything more” (Rev 3:17).
Your worship is compromised by
human loyalties. Derek Prince has become your saviour and your leader, not
the living Jesus who comes undetected like a thief in the night, who is
preparing His Bride to accept further truth.
As many as He loves, He rebukes and
chastens (Rev 3:19).
Malcolm B Heap
Shut The Door On Jesus!
So the Church Sleeps!
Spiritual leaders lull the Church
to sleep. Even the so-called ‘Spirit-led’ ministers and ministries follow
this trend. They preach Christ, but not the fulness of Christ who calls you
to suffer for Him as He suffered for you. They don’t warn the Church of the
most subtle heresies or of Tribulation looming. Evangelicals and
Charismatics have gained a large following by giving people what they want
to hear – an appealing message which only highlights the pleasant side of
I remember getting a letter from a man
who, while he complimented us overall on our publications and articles,
could not understand why we engaged in ‘bashing’ other ministries so hard.
If you are unclear about that, the
title of the recent article compilation Judgement To Fall On All Falsity
and False Ministers should give you a clue. We report on various
ministers or ministries to whom God has sent us:
1) to inform and warn, and
2) hopefully, to wake up any who will listen
While we would like ‘our targets’ to
wake up, it is highly doubtful whether most of them will. History testifies
to human failure as a result of:
4) other traits of rebellion against God
Religious people unfortunately can be
amongst the most stubborn and self-willed. They pick up stones to throw at
God’s prophets just as readily as the unconverted! Those whom God has
selected to be His people are often represented in the Bible by the metaphor
of ‘Jerusalem’, and Jesus’ lament below is a strong indictment against you
and all whom He has called, unless you accept the prophets He sends:
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who
kill the prophets and stone those sent to you... (Matt 23:37, NIV.)
Human nature has not changed, which is
why Jesus’ correction against ministers, ministries and Christians has not
lessened in intensity, either.
What Jesus said was so true. We get
‘stoned’ or ‘stone-walled’ by every Christian ministry or church to which
God sends us!
And even where we find a rare
individual who listens, generally they don’t accept the fulness of the
message, but pick and choose aspects to suit their agenda, adapted for their
audiences for the sake of convenience or expedience.
The following is an example which God
predicted in a dream (copied from my dream diary). It illustrates the trend:
An Example Of
2002. M. The Christian Convention.
‘at’ a Christian retreat, which began at the week-end for a few days. The
dream conveyed that we had to work for our ‘keep’, however. [This highlights
our lack of support, in contrast to theirs. We have had to take on huge
debts to survive.]
part of the dream showed Zenya [our younger daughter, aged 19], dressed in a
pale turquoise suit. She was really smart. Then, I saw a preacher,
enthusiastic in his preaching. As a result of the way Zenya was, he preached
about the destruction coming (although I wasn’t shown how this came about),
but he said that the whole world would be engulfed in war in 10 years’ time.
next scene, a sizeable group of people were gathered on a lawn in a nice
setting. But they were all looking in one direction only, taking no notice
of what God was doing elsewhere, which was far more important. They all
followed like sheep; they went in the direction that looked most sensible
from a human perspective – the direction that their leaders had pointed
them. Effectively, they were being led astray.
Meaning: I didn’t know what the dream meant until we opened the morning
post. The dream concerned World Harvest Christian
Centre, an association
or organisation run by Wale Babatunde. A glossy four-colour flyer
advertising their up-coming conference came in the post that day (25th Nov
2002). This was the Christian ‘retreat’ in the dream. As I prayed that
morning, God showed me that I should write to them and send them some pieces
of our literature. I was shown by the Spirit what to send, and 23
publications were enclosed. (In Bible numerics, 23 depicts hypocrisy.)
But the dream conveyed that they aren’t
listening to the prophets God is raising up to do the short, sharp work at
this end time. They are not aware of how God is going to raise the dead to
jettison His Work into prominence. They are seeking prominence for
themselves. They want to be seen and heard, because they think they
have valuable input for the Church. They are intent on promoting themselves.
But God promotes those whom He has called and chosen for the end-time task
of ‘Elijah’. His means of putting them in the limelight will be through
raising the dead. Those who seek prominence for themselves are not seeking
prominence for all Jesus taught. They could end up being false 'prophets'!
Our younger daughter, Zenya, helps us
out in our office, sending literature and doing other necessary office work.
She figures very prominently in God’s plans to reach this nation. (I can
explain more about this in the future. There is much more significance about
why she figured prominently in the dream, particularly with regard to the
turquoise suit, which is a symbol of beautiful heavenly garments.)
The world conflagration in 10 years’
time is a false prophecy, a human prediction, which illustrates that the
prophetic stuff they are receiving is a mixture, tainted by error – the
ideas of men (biblically, 10 is the number of man). Like the message from
Satan in the Garden in Eden, it’s truth mixed with error. Who wants that?!
Apparently, many do, because the dream showed all the people going the wrong
direction, away from what God is doing, following in the direction which
their teachers are leading them.
The spacious lawn in lovely
surroundings depicts Ashburnham Place in Sussex, where they were holding
As I was praying that morning, God also
reminded me of what Jesus said about human nature being evil (in Matthew
If you, then, being evil, know how
to give good gifts to your children....
Why did He remind me of this? Because
many believers look at Christian leaders and think that they are
well-meaning. They assume that they have laudable motives, because they are
preaching Christ and are running their independent ministries. But what God
sees is very much different! They are only listening to the Spirit in part.
They only want to hear what God has to say which will bolster their
ministries, or support their present doctrinal positions.
They don’t want Jesus telling them to
turn around, and do something totally different. They don’t want to accept
the ‘new’ truth which God is presenting to the Church and the nation at this
time – which He will do through raising people to life who have been dead
Their motive is selfish – they seek to
be noticed and heard. Even if not intentionally, they promote and elevate
themselves. That’s why you see their faces on a glossy colour brochure,
advertising their event which they want you to attend and pay them for the
privilege of attending! That’s a human way of doing things. It’s what
unconverted advertisers do in this world, to try and get your attention. But
God works differently. He gets people’s attention by supernatural means.
How did Jesus get people’s attention?
Was it by human advertising, or miraculous power and situations which God
Compare the way they operate with the
way those whom God has called to front-line evangelism operate (a good
example of this is in Like A Mighty Wind by Mel Tari, about the
Indonesian revival), and you can readily see which is of God and which is of
These ministries (and there are many of
them who operate like this) call their seminar or get-together a
‘conference’, but it’s not really a conference. In a conference people
confer; they exchange views. There is a level playing ground. There is
opportunity for a free exchange of views to take place and for open
discussion to occur. However, if we were to turn up, and try to open up the
floor for the exchange of our views to occur, we would either be shut up,
ignored, or shown the door! This has happened before, so I know whereof I
No, it’s not a conference. It’s a
platform for them to promote their ministries, their theology,
their agenda. They want you to accept them as their spiritual
leaders. That’s why they call the event. They want to promote themselves.
They are making a living out of what they are doing, and they want you to
support their effort, so they can continue to pursue their goal.
Don’t be deluded by people’s approach.
It may look good, even though it is compromised by humanistic philosophy.
Remember Jesus’ words:
If you, being evil.... (Matt 7:11).
They may have a picture with a nice
smiling face, and words of approbation underneath, extolling their
ministerial credentials, giving them great acclaim. They may herald
themselves as ‘watchmen’ or ‘prophets’, ‘operating in a strong prophetic and
apostolic anointing’, etc., but have they truly heard from God or are they
merely trying to, or hoping to hear from Him as they pursue their own ends
Did He really send them with a
commission and a specific message for the people, or have they just run of
their own accord, hopeful to get acclaim for themselves?
Be not deceived, the human mind, even
that which has been touched by the Spirit of God at times, can be very
devious and deceitful! (Jer 17:9.) Are they selflessly promoting Jesus and
the truth of God, or are they using what they know of Jesus and the truth of
God to build their own empire?
The Pharisees in Jesus’ day went over
sea and land to make just one convert! They put out a lot of effort in their
bid to influence people’s minds. But they were self-motivated. They wanted
elevation, too. And they got it.... for a while. But when the Spirit of God
blew in, they blew out!
How many ministries there are in our
day who will go the same way when God turns up the heat! They can’t see that
their modus operandi is laced with pride, arrogance and self-will. There is
presumption written all over their advertising campaigns. And as long as
they are in that mode, they won’t hear much from God, or do many wonderful
works for Him.
True prophets are sent by God,
appointed by Him, not by men. They are certainly not self-appointed and
their motive is not one of seeking attention for themselves, but for the
message from God which they bring. And that message, although full of
spiritual goodies, is harsh and uncompromising in its flavour. God’s
prophets are hardly accepted at all in our hedonistic, self-seeking age.
Like it was with Jesus, what they have to say is rejected. It is
Jesus did not say what He did for
effect, or to gain a following. That was not His motive. He didn’t try His
utmost to get people to follow Him. He cared only about conveying the truth
Jesus did not seek attention; the
attention came to Him, because of the power of God working through Him,
because He was commissioned from Above. So, it will be when the dead are
raised through our ministry. People don’t want what we are saying, because
we have the unadulterated truth of God. Only the minority want it – only
those who are truly seeking truth, who are humble, who have no airs and
graces, who are not living a sham. Those few accept it, and when they find
more truth through our publications, they rejoice and accept the purity of
God’s Word into their lives, changing the way they live. Revival occurs, and
they are built up and their lives transformed.
They don’t go to a conference of men,
paying them for the privilege! As they learn from our publications, which
expound the truths of God that the Church doesn’t want to accept, they can
open up to the Spirit of God, and He comes in and transforms them. I don’t
need to be lifted up on a platform in front of them. They can read what the
Holy Spirit has had me write and totally ignore who the human instrument
was. And that’s good, because the more man gets lifted up in any move of
God, the more God’s Spirit withdraws to the shadows.
Who is “preparing the Church for such a
time as this?” (Motto on World Harvest Christian Centre’s advertising
brochure.) I can tell you it’s not the ones whom most think. It’s not the
recognised ones. It’s the Elijahs of our day who have next to no human
support, who are virtually all alone, but who have the resurrection power of
God behind them.
So what’s the sign of such prophets
today? It’s those who have prophesied of resurrecting the dead – people who
have been long dead – not just dead for minutes, but for days, weeks, months
and even years! This is the sign we have given the Church since 1992.
(Recounted in Dreams and Visions From God.)
The appropriate response to a sign from
God is to believe and accept His prophets. Then you can benefit from the new
thing God is doing today and comprehend the message they bring from the
Throne of God.
Today, it’s really very little
different from the way things were in Jesus’ day. He contested with the
religious leaders then about their hypocrisy and sham. He called them vipers
and worse! It sounded slanderous, but it was not. His accusations against
them were true!
Religious leaders today display similar
hypocrisy and sham. Too many do not lead people to God, but to follow THEM!
And the people don’t see it, because the transfer of loyalties is so subtle.
Jeremiah prophesied of this debacle:
An astonishing and horrible thing
has been committed in the land: the prophets
[leaders who claim God is directing them]
prophesy falsely, and the priests [the
teachers of God’s Word; church leaders] rule by their own power; and
My people love to have it so (Jer 5:31).
So, God sends out a prophetic cry to
alert the Virgins to the fact that all are asleep to this disastrous
spiritual situation (Matt 25:5,6). Sleep depicts deception.
The Midnight Cry goes out at this late
hour, as the world (and Church) approaches its darkest time in history.
(Explained more in the booklet The Ten Virgins.)
Prayer For The Nations?
Rod and Julie Anderson conduct a
‘prayer ministry’ in London under the impressive name Prayer For The
Nations. They, too, send out glossy colour flyers advertising their
upcoming ‘conference’ events which lift up the personalities appearing on
For example, a brochure promoting their
31st March 2003 event Prayer For London at Westminster Chapel
featured pictures of John Dawson, President of the International
Reconciliation Coalition (sounds impressive!), Joel Edwards, General
Director of the Evangelical Alliance, Doug Williams, London AOG (Assemblies
of God) Superintendent, and of course Rod and Julie Anderson, Founders of
Prayer for the Nations.
And their Prayer Summit meetings
of May 20th-24th 2003 – “Five days to pray for change in our nation” –
contained elevating portraits of the founders alongside Dutch Sheets, Cindy
Jacobs, Pastor Agu Irukwu, and Ed Silvoso. (The latter never replied when I
wrote to him two years ago about something else which he needed to correct.)
Don't be too impressed; some of these are false ministers!
To promote themselves, they printed
these written endorsements from others who support them:
long standing relationship with Prayer For the Nations I am impressed
by their total commitment to prayer, intercession and developing God’s
people in these areas. The Summit is a time of powerful intercession, a
conference we are very pleased to be affiliated with.” (Joel Edwards.)
Nice bit of back-scratching!
calls us to pray like never before, these guys are doing the business. I
think they’re great.” (Pete Greig.)
Prayer Summit has become a catalyst for far reaching change in
several nations.” (John Dawson.)
Oh yeah? I’m sorry, but I’m not
impressed. Where’s God’s commendation? (2 Cor 10:18.) Print that, not what
men say. Clearly, they don’t have much on that front, or they would print
it! Jesus said:
Woe to you when all men speak well
of you, for so did their fathers to the false prophets (Luke 6:26).
And some of the ones they feature may
well turn out to be false 'prophets' in the final count!
They advertise their event which they
call The Turning for July 21-26 as “a prophetic prayer encounter with
Rick Joyner and the Morning Star Band and Dave Markee at Ashburnham Place.”
We heard Rick Joyner’s Morning Star
Band at Edinburgh in October
2001 where we saw displays of people giving themselves over to demons!
Rod and Julie Anderson’s presumptuously
named Strategic Prayer School claims to be the hub of the spiritual
reformation and change which God intends to bring to this nation. If it were
I would gladly give them credit! But when personalities are lifted up as if
they were God’s prophets to the nation, without the message of repentance
which God is promoting, how can they be anything other than false prophets
in this context?
Humanistic promotion, to impress, and
get acclaim or support is not God’s way. It's vanity. Paul spoke against it
in 2 Corinthians 10:18. We tell others what God has said about us (some of
those revelations are in the leaflet What God Said About MM.)
Previously, I had sent our written
materials to them on several occasions, but finally I received a letter
asking me to desist. Not surprisingly, they didn’t want the truths about the
Sabbath and holy days.
Their advertising brochure for
Lifestyle of Prayer VI ‘conference’ on April 7-11 at Ashburnham Place, E
Sussex, contained this statement:
“A prophetic prayer encounter in the
Word and the Spirit with practical teaching that develops strong faith,
strategic intercession and intimate worship.”
It sounds really good, doesn’t it? And
some of it may be good. I’m not knocking everything. There is always some
good that Christian ministries achieve. However, after they have rejected
the pivotal truths which God had us present to them – which will be the
pivot for the coming revival – they are doing the same as all the false
prophets in Jeremiah’s day.
To reject the one whom God has
appointed to bring the truth is to reject the One who sent him. Wandering in
darkness is the result. I wrote:

The majority of the prominent ministries are missing it.

majority will not. There WILL be a revival, but not in the way you expect,
nor for the purposes which you anticipate.
August 2001, God spoke to us and said:
to raise up a standard in all we do. That standard is the Word of God, the
holiness of God, the beauty of God, for the beauty of God is seen in His
holiness. The Church underestimates, downplays and disregards this. The
Church has missed the mark of My holiness; the Church has missed the mark of
My holiness." That includes you.

to the majority of the Church. Thus, you follow men, not God. And when God
sends a prophet to correct you and redirect you, is your response any
different to the majority of those whom God has called? They reject His
prophets and the re-directive message they bring.
that you are clear, I repeat: The Lord spoke to me today about your agenda;
that it is not His. He also reminded me of the word He spoke in August that
His people are missing the mark of His holiness. And thirdly, for you, He
reminded me of the subject of Ezekiel 18 – that the former righteousness of
the righteous will not sustain them. A person must continue in
righteousness, as God reveals more and expands its meaning, or they will
fall behind and eventually be cast aside, trashed along with the wicked. He
cannot accept those who step back.
Cerullo prophesied two decades ago that God would place before His people a
line. They would have to choose which side of the line they would go. There
could be no straddling of the line, no sitting on the fence.
coming to that time of judgement. It is even now upon the Church. They must
choose which side of the line they will go. There is no middle ground. "He
that is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me,
the Lord presents to you again is the truth contained in the book Our
His prophets and you shall prosper." (2 Chron 20:20.)

you for your recent mailing [promotional to all their mailing list],
informing of upcoming events you are staging. When I sent you some of our
publications some while ago you asked for your name to be removed from our
mailing list, which we duly did. Am I to presume from receiving your latest
missive that you are now willing to receive, and not merely wanting to
promote your own activities to other believers?
you find the enclosed useful to you in grasping some of the greater moving
of the Spirit throughout the body of Christ at this time. Raising the dead
is now very much on God’s agenda. A young boy was raised back to life in
Nigeria recently, in conjunction with our ministry (see
Raising The Dead
enclosed). There will be more, many more occurrences of this, to testify to
the message Jesus wants you and the rest of the Church to accept as part of
His last move of the Spirit in this land before it goes into captivity –
taken over by Europe, and the mark of the Beast fully enforced.
continually amazed at how blind some leaders want to be. I was astonished at
the way you could just dismiss the input of prophets whom God sent from
outside your set-up, as if they were of no consequence, and then place
yourselves on a pedestal as if you are doing something worthwhile for God.
Your agenda is adrift from that of the Spirit in several respects. As long
as you think that this is God’s time to save cities more or less wholesale,
or that He is even trying to save huge masses of people, like for example
reaching London to that end, you are out of touch with His will. This is not
His time to save. Rather it is His time to tell the rebellious nation that
it will face takeover by their ‘lovers’ in Europe because they DON’T want
Him, and WON’T accept Him! But you are not giving them that true prophetic
message, rather you are presenting them with one of your own, watered down
and sufficiently acceptable to their ears. And, after dismissing the
prophets whom God sent to you, you assert a prophetic role for yourselves.
There should be no place for self-appointed ‘prophets’ in the Church! True
prophets come with God’s approval, not man’s.
Elijah ever have trusted friends speaking at his venues? When were there
other voices alongside his, agreeing with ‘his’ agenda? (Which was not his
agenda, but God’s!) Would he be sending out glossy flyers today, promoting
himself alongside others who have received acclaim as speakers of worth?
I do not
mean to be disparaging of all you are doing. There will be some people who
will be helped by your activities, and I don’t doubt that He has called you.
But, where you are veering away from the direction which God wants you to
take, and He shows me that, it is as much your duty to heed these words as
it is mine to present them to you. So, I list here some of the aspects of
His mind which He would that you receive, and the publications which address
Raising the dead.

No prizes for guessing how many
publications they requested, or even whether they replied! Like I said, the
false prophets get the acclaim; the true prophets get the flack, or are
Prayer...? ...or... Performance?
The Pharisees considered themselves
the ‘prayer warriors’ of Jesus’ time. Jesus castigated them for perverting
prayer and making a public display of it for their own glory (Matt 6:5-8).
Time has moved on, and so has the
subtlety and cunning of Satan, whose chief target is the elect of God. He
deceives to lure people into spiritual traps where he can strip away
humility and righteousness, injecting you instead with his pride and
When Jesus illustrated a right approach
in prayer, His first emphasis was the opposite of what we see today in those
who profess to be ‘strategic prayer warriors’! He said, “Don’t make a big
show of it in public. Start from the basis of humility and pray in private
if you might be tempted towards vanity.” (Matt 6:5,6 paraphrased.)
“Recognise your own inadequacy (Matt
6:11-14), your sinfulness and need for forgiveness (Matt 6:12; Luke 11:13),
that you are deserving of no ‘glory’ but that all the glory belongs to God”
Yet we see many charismatic ‘prayer
warriors’ getting puffed up or elevated, thinking that they and
their efforts are central to the attainment of God’s plans and
purposes in Britain or elsewhere! A subtle transference has taken place in
which church leaders have usurped divine prerogatives. They have taken
Jesus’ place as the One who makes intercession for those who need it (Heb
7:25; Rom 8:26,27,34).
The very subtle – but very wrong –
teachings of intercessory ‘prayer warriors’ are blasphemous! They are
not taking cities for Christ! If Jesus is going to do that, HE will do it,
and those He uses as intercessors will invariably be people behind closed
doors whom very few others know what they are praying for. Why? Because
Jesus knows it is harmful to you if you become a great celebrity through His
achievements which He may give you the privilege in sharing. (Not sharing
the glory while you are in the flesh, but sharing the work load.)
Always remember prayer’s primary
purpose – it’s to change you first and foremost. When you pray for
others, you change; your nature changes; more of the love of God
enters; more gratitude, humility and other godly virtues are born.
When prayer lifts people up, or makes them stage
personalities and celebrities, something is very wrong. If they think that
they are important or even indispensable in God’s schemes –
‘strategic’ – they have actually disqualified themselves (1 Cor 9:27).
