Flee From Idols


Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry

The Lord has been showing me quite a bit lately and using my daily experiences to illustrate what He is teaching.  Again, I learn as I write and teach which blows me away.  I am not that smart to come up with half of what is revealed to me and I am obedient to give out what He gives me in the way He gives it to me.  I pray that all who read have ears to hear what He is saying and turn to Him in repentance as their hearts are exposed (mine included). This is just as uncomfortable for me as it is to anyone else.  I don’t think I am better than anyone else.  Trust me, I get taken to the woodshed frequently and it is painful and it is a process I would choose to avoid, but I know that my Father above does it out of His love for me and that I need to obey and trust Him in the process and respond to it.  He has only my good in mind, as only a Father would.

The Lord has revealed to me that some of the things I write have been revealing what has been spoken by some in their prayer closet or in their homes.  I don’t know who these people are or why, but Daddy does because He sees and hears all and He wants these people to know that He sees and hears all and He will reveal it.  The bible says that there is nothing hidden that shall not be revealed and what is spoken in private will be shouted from the housetops.   I just give out what He gives me AS HE GIVES IT.  It is not dummied down or sugar coated, but expresses His feelings and sternness in an area that He is trying to expose and correct as He exposes the motives of our heart.  Please keep this in mind in everything I write and in what you are about to read.  It is not me who speaks, but the Spirit of the Father.   I write and learn as I go. Sometimes, the Father teaches me by asking me a question, as a good teacher does.  I know that when a question comes, the answer, His answer, follows.  It tears down any strongholds of wrong thinking I have about Jesus and what I have been taught about the gospel as the truth is revealed.  Only those who are arrogant or prideful are the ones who are not teachable.

The Father asked me one day recently, “What country produces the most porn and idolatry in the world and pollutes the entire world with it?”  What country plays the harlot and seduces the world with her harlotry?  Read  Revelations.  Uh oh!  I know where this is going and I know what the answer is.  It is America!  Out of Hollywood comes the filth that has seduced the world and influenced the world with its harlotry.  Out of America comes the porn and video games that include the animated, but realistic porn and gruesome torture and violence that the video gamers are addicted to and in bondage to because that is who they worship and are enslaved to.  As I was typing this, I made a typo and the Lord showed me that even the word Hollywood, was a perversion of the word Holywould.  Satan twists everything God does to advance his kingdom and he seduces away the ignorant who love pleasure more then they love God and tells these people that they are saved just because they said a little prayer and got dipped in water when they have never repented of their sin.  They have never been delivered because they ENJOY THEIR SIN AND HAVE NO REASON TO GIVE IT UP IF THEY HAVE BEEN WRONGLY TAUGHT BY THE CHURCH that “Once  saved, always saved” which is not scriptural.  Read the bible for yourself.  Hebrews states that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus WHO WALK NOT ACCORDING TO THE FLESH BUT ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT.   Those who are in Christ Jesus won’t be led and controlled by the flesh, but by the Spirit of Christ who dwells in them. There is condemnation or “judgment” for those who don’t walk according to the spirit but fulfill the lusts thereof and they reject the empowerment Christ gave them to not sin by providing the Holy Spirit.  This Holy Spirit is the deposit or sealing that Jesus gave us to not sin until we are fully redeemed at His coming.  It is the engagement ring given us as His betrothed bride or fiancé’ until He comes back for us.   The word “judgment” means to sever or cut off.  This would be the foolish virgin who ran out of oil before her bridegroom returned for her.  The Lord would say that His church or bride is ever learning, but never able to come into the knowledge of the truth and they deny or reject the “power thereof”.   They don’t verbally deny or reject it, but they don’t teach on what is needed to receive it.  Thus, they are not allowing or denying the power thereof.  You cannot receive this empowerment apart from repentance, so the church is not empowered because it does not preach the right message that leads to empowerment, which is repentance and there must be fruit to prove that you are repentant in order to receive this gift of salvation and empowerment.   Without repentance and repentance being preached, we are denying the power or not allowing that power that Jesus died to provide us with.  Grace is not the license to sin, but the power of God given to us not to sin, but repentance and its fruit must be demonstrated in order to receive it.  Repentance and salvation are a gift, but all gifts need to be received. We can pray all we like for God to give someone the gift of repentance, but what good does that do if they will not receive it or worse yet, don’t think they need it to be saved.  They never receive the security deposit or sealing that Christ died to provide.

This week I traveled staying in apartment with someone who had put a “SECURITY DEPOSIT” down on the apartment he was leasing.  I had my dogs with me and this person was so upset if my dogs barked because he was afraid he was going to lose his security deposit that he put down on his apartment if the dogs were discovered to be there.   The Lord spoke to me and said, “The security deposit he should be afraid of losing is the one I provided by dying for him and sending my Holy Spirit to him so that he could meet the conditions of the lease he signed to reserve a place for himself in my mansion.” The word “sealed” in the bible when it refers to someone who claims to have accepted Christ means “deposit”.  It does not mean, “Signed, sealed and delivered and there is nothing you can do to break that seal.”  This is one of the basis’ for the once saved always saved false theologies.  We think sealed means it can’t be broken because we are in covenant.  Being engaged in the Jewish faith was a covenant, but it could be severed or broken if the virgin had been unfaithful and the groom could put her away.  This is what Joseph was contemplating when he found out Mary was pregnant with Jesus because he thought she had played the harlot and been unfaithful.  Being sealed does not mean the covenant could not be severed and the Lord was very clear to me that this person had more of a fear of losing some money then he had of losing his security deposit that the Lord provided for a place in the mansion that Christ was building.  The Lord is about to cut this person off or judge them and He said to me, “Vengeance is mine.   I will recompense.  I am not slack regarding my promises to bring judgment but am longsuffering because I wish that no one would perish, no not one, but I am being wearied.”  Then the Lord showed me Sadam Husain (sp) who had so much wealth and power only to flee as judgment came upon him as he hid in a small hole in the earth.  The Lord showed me that there is no hole in the whole face of the earth that a person can hide to escape where he can escape being exposed and caught and brought to justice and keep from standing before the Lord and be held accountable for what he did despite  everything Jesus died to provide him with.  When I was at this apartment, I couldn’t even sense the presence of God because the evil and darkness were so strong.  I had nightmares that didn’t come from me and spirits of lust were present.  I couldn’t stand being there and the Lord started showing me some things.  The Lord was going to expose what was hidden because it was mocking Him and all He did and bring judgment.  I found out later that what I had dreamt were actual scenes in some of the video games this person was entertaining himself with.  Purchasing and playing these games, he had opened the door to these spirits into his life and he was in bondage to them and addicted.  When he couldn’t get his gaming fix, he was irritable, angry, abusive, threatening to get rid of a few day old puppy and have me do something with the dogs he used to love more than me if he didn’t get his way.  He was darker than ever inside.  How can a person entertain himself with porn, torture, horror and gore and find pleasure in these things and claim to be “IN CHRIST”.  Can a good tree bring forth evil fruit?  Doesn’t the bible say that by their fruits you will know them and Jesus Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry

to break that seal.”  This is one of the basis’ for the once saved always saved false theologies.  We think sealed means it can’t be broken because we are in covenant.  Being engaged in the Jewish faith was a covenant, but it could be severed or broken if the virgin had been unfaithful and the groom could put her away.  This is what Joseph was contemplating when he found out Mary was pregnant with Jesus because he thought she had played the harlot and been unfaithful.  Being sealed does not mean the covenant could not be severed and the Lord was very clear to me that this person had more of a fear of losing some money then he had of losing his security deposit that the Lord provided for a place in the mansion that Christ was building.  The Lord is about to cut this person off or judge them and He said to me, “Vengeance is mine.   I will recompense.  I am not slack regarding my promises to bring judgment but am longsuffering because I wish that no one would perish, no not one, but I am being wearied.”  Then the Lord showed me Sadam Husain (sp) who had so much wealth and power only to flee as judgment came upon him as he hid in a small hole in the earth.  The Lord showed me that there is no hole in the whole face of the earth that a person can hide to escape where he can escape being exposed and caught and brought to justice and keep from standing before the Lord and be held accountable for what he did despite  everything Jesus died to provide him with.  When I was at this apartment, I couldn’t even sense the presence of God because the evil and darkness were so strong.  I had nightmares that didn’t come from me and spirits of lust were present.  I couldn’t stand being there and the Lord started showing me some things.  The Lord was going to expose what was hidden because it was mocking Him and all He did and bring judgment.  I found out later that what I had dreamt were actual scenes in some of the video games this person was entertaining himself with.  Purchasing and playing these games, he had opened the door to these spirits into his life and he was in bondage to them and addicted.  When he couldn’t get his gaming fix, he was irritable, angry, abusive, threatening to get rid of a few day old puppy and have me do something with the dogs he used to love more than me if he didn’t get his way.  He was darker than ever inside.  How can a person entertain himself with porn, torture, horror and gore and find pleasure in these things and claim to be “IN CHRIST”.  Can a good tree bring forth evil fruit?  Doesn’t the bible say that by their fruits you will know them and Jesus commanded us to try their fruits.  Sadam took great pleasure in torturing people and putting them in swimming pools with acid to burn their flesh off.  How is the heart of those who, through their video games where they take on the role of the person in the game with much of the same forms of torture and sexual perversion are exciting these people, be any different from the heart of Sadam.  Not anyone can be in power like Sadam except in a video game.  People who play these games even refer to the character they are playing in the game as “I”.  A spirit of divination is behind porn.  It is a peeping Tom spirit that finds pleasure in observing others secretly without being seen or caught.  This is the spirit behind porn and torture.  This spirit leads to poverty and spiritual death and I can’t believe that anyone who finds pleasure in these things and that are in bondage to this spirit will enter the kingdom of heaven.  This spirit of divination is the counterfeit of the Holy Spirit with the supernatural in manifestation and the “false sense of power and excitement” that comes with it.  It is a seducing spirit and all who worship this IDOL are breaking the first commandments of having strange Gods before the living God because they lose everything to worship this idol, including their very soul because they are losing the security deposit in the mansion Jesus died to provide us with.  They love darkness more than light and will not come to the light that their deeds can be reproved that they are wrought in darkness.  They have been taught in the church that they can do this and still be saved or enter the kingdom of God because they have been sealed or had a security deposit put down to reserve their place, that they cannot lose, in heaven.  We have believed the lies of the devil and we live in the church age of the apostate church that has fallen away from the Truth.  If there is anyone who needs to check some of these things out, Google video games like “Hitman, Grand Theft Auto V, Payne, etc.  and research sex and violence in these games and watch the videos.  They have sex with prostitutes who are then killed with baseball bats.  There are strip clubs and graphic sex in these games as well as torture where cities have grinders that humans are put in and lotteries are held to see who goes through the grinder for the entertainment of everyone else.  Do you really think that a person who is truly “In Christ” can be entertained by such  perversion and sadistic violence?  These people are all in our churches today and marriages and families are being destroyed because of it and the church doesn’t have a clue how to help.  How can we claim to love Jesus and not love what He loves and hate what He hates?  We grieve the Holy Spirit with our sin and expect to receive all the blessings and GOOD promises of God?  How deceived can we be?

What is the result of grieving the Spirit of God?  Let’s look at Eph 5:3-7.  From this verse we can see that ignoring the Spirit is nothing less than rejecting God and denying the power He has died to provide us with to not sin.  We have a form of Godliness, but deny the power thereof, and the Lord is not happy about it.  It cost Him everything to provide us with it and we reject it.

But among you (talking to Christians) there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.  For of this you can be sure:  No immoral, impure or greedy person has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.  LET NO ONE DECEIVE YOU WITH EMPTY WORDS, FOR BECAUSE OF SUCH THINGS GOD’S WRATH COMES ON THOSE WHO ARE DISOBEDIENT. THEREFORE DO NOT BE PARTNERS WITH THEM”.

The Lord would say that we are preaching EMPTY WORDS TO A POWERLESS CHURCH and that is why the church is powerless.  Our gospel is empty because we are deceived and we are deceiving others.  WE NEED TO REPENT and judgment starts in the house of the Lord starting at the top.

We are not to be deceived into thinking that we can get away with being immoral, impure, selfish, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, addicted to our idols like gaming or whatever we place before God because God’s wrath, hell and a position in the lake of fire will be the outcome.  This is why the bible tells us not to grieve the Holy Spirit with whom we are sealed, or have a deposit put down to reserve our place in the mansion above.    When you sign a lease, there are terms placed on that lease and if you break the terms of that lease, you lose that deposit.  You are a foolish virgin that is locked out of the wedding feast.  If we tell people they can willfully sin and not experience God’s wrath, their blood will be on our hands and God will hold us more accountable if we do not warn them.  Even Pilot, who was  not a Jew believe that someone’s blood could be on his hands enough to adversely affect him and that is why he washed his hands of the blood of Christ after being warned by his wife.  Today, because we have not been taught things regarding our Jewish roots or been exposed to it, we don’t get this aspect of accountability for those God has placed in our care to watch over. 

Uh oh!  There are some hidden things of the heart the Lord wants exposed in his fivefold ministry.  Many leaders in the church are more concerned with THEIR goals which they justify by saying they are God’s goals, than with the people with whom God has entrusted them with.  People are only a resource to fulfill their vision and goals.  The success of their vision outweighs the purpose of it, leaving us without any true disciples.  If I can just get so many tithers or so many people doing this or that to get God’s vision accomplished…….  Ouch!  Viewing people as a resource for their goals that they claim are the Lords. They demand to be served which serves their vision. He is not happy about that one because of the sternness with which it was spoken.  He is going to bring strong correction to leaders who seek to be served in this way instead of being a servant to the people Jesus entrusted them with.  Jesus washed Judas’s feet.  He continually reached out to even the one who betrayed Him.  He did not use His authority to protect His own life or ministry.  He did not ignore or cut off men and women under them because He was suspicious of them or presumptuous about them.  Only those insecure in their calling do this. 

I thought I was done, but the Lord says no.  There is a pride in His leadership where people think God has given them the truth, the whole truth and they are God’s man being raised up to further His kingdom and others are wrong.  When someone comes into their church, they will spend time with them teaching them THE TRUTH and this might even be truth God has revealed to them, but not the complete picture.  They believe that if they just teach the person the truth God has given them and baptized them the right way and they have been taught the right way, then we will be the church to finally see them set free and walk in righteousness.  There is pride and a form of gloating behind this and when the person becomes seven times worse than what they originally were when they come to them, they can’t deal with it, don’t want to hear it, cut you off.  Knowledge does not change a heart.  Being dipped in water doesn’t change a heart that doesn’t want to be changed.  A person has to hate his sin and repent before being saved and that starts with a message of repentance and the consequences or rejecting Christ and what He provided.  You are not empowered if you have not repented.  You are not delivered from something if you have not repented.  No one preaches that today and there is no such thing as salvation without repentance and that is why so many in our churches think they are saved and they are not and we are at fault. We go through the religious rituals of baptism, saying the prayer and everything and expect that to do the job without ever requiring repentance, denying self, picking up your cross and following Him.  I can’t tell you how many churches I have been too like this.  I think, this time things will be different.  This is the church that will make a difference in a loved one’s life.  This is the church I was looking for, etc.  They take the poor wretched sinner under their wing and teach him what God has given them thinking the same thing I was thinking.  We’ll just teach him this and that, none of which speaks of repentance before salvation, baptize him and he will be set free and good to go.  WRONG!  He ends up worse each time, mocking God all the more as he has managed one more time to make fools out of those who are supposed to be the most discerning and powerful in God’s kingdom.  Knowledge puffs up and doesn’t change a heart.  There is a religious pride behind this that the Lord will expose and deal with.  No one is given “all the truth” and we need to submit one to another in the fear of the Lord.  If we refuse to do that, we have disqualified ourselves to receive the new wine in the next move of the Spirit.  That is one reason the Lord wants people in the five fold ministry to be together and share what the Lord is giving them.  We need to be humble and dependent on one another.  I had a worldwide minister say to me recently, “You know, what you teach goes against so much of what biblical scholars today teach.  None the less, I will read what you say.”  There was such an arrogance and haughtiness of spirit that relied on biblical scholars.  If I mentioned this spirit filled minister’s name, everyone would know him and I am not here to shame anyone, just to teach.  The Lord said to me with a very irritated and stern tone, “You tell him that the Pharisees, scribes and rulers in my day were the biblical scholars.  They knew their “scriptures” in and out and by heart and everything in their scriptures pointed to Me standing in front of them on that day, in that hour, in that generation and they still missed the hour of their visitation”.  Then the Lord told me to tell him that spiritual things are spiritually discerned and you will not learn them in seminary.  As a matter of fact, seminary may disqualify you from this next move of the Spirit because the Lord uses the week, uneducated and despised things of the world to confound the wise because no flesh shall glory in His presence and He will not put new wine into old bottles.”  It was a strong rebuke from the Lord to those who trust in themselves that they are wise and scholarly.  He was not pleased with this renowned minister.

If you love Jesus, you will hate sin.  If you love Jesus, you will think about Him all the time and want to spend time with Him.  You do not want to displease Him.  What do we set our affections on and what comes before Christ?  Do you have idols or selfish ambition in your heart?

I thought I was done again, but He has more.  If you were engaged to be married and your betrothed said to you, “I will be the best wife there is 364 days of the year.  I will clean the house, cook gourmet meals, always look good for you and be the best wife ever 364 days of the year.  Just give me one day a year where I can commit adultery with my old boyfriends.  Would that be acceptable?  Would you agree to that?  What about four hours?  How about ten minutes? Would you marry someone like that?  This bride has not given her whole heart to her future husband.  She still has other lovers even though she commits adultery only once a year.  Can you imagine Jesus coming back for a bride with that attitude?  With hearts given to idols?  NO, HE IS COMING FOR A GLORIOUS CHURCH, WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE.

Jesus commanded us to try their fruits.  Sadam took great pleasure in torturing people and putting them in swimming pools with acid to burn their flesh off.  How is the heart of those who, through their video games where they take on the role of the person in the game with much of the same forms of torture and sexual perversion are exciting these people, be any different from the heart of Sadam.  Not anyone can be in power like Sadam except in a video game.  People who play these games even refer to the character they are playing in the game as “I”.  A spirit of divination is behind porn.  It is a peeping Tom spirit that finds pleasure in observing others secretly without being seen or caught.  This is the spirit behind porn and torture.  This spirit leads to poverty and spiritual death and I can’t believe that anyone who finds pleasure in these things and that are in bondage to this spirit will enter the kingdom of heaven.  This spirit of divination is the counterfeit of the Holy Spirit with the supernatural in manifestation and the “false sense of power and excitement” that comes with it.  It is a seducing spirit and all who worship this IDOL are breaking the first commandments of having strange Gods before the living God because they lose everything to worship this idol, including their very soul because they are losing the security deposit in the mansion Jesus died to provide us with.  They love darkness more than light and will not come to the light that their deeds can be reproved that they are wrought in darkness.  They have been taught in the church that they can do this and still be saved or enter the kingdom of God because they have been sealed or had a security deposit put down to reserve their place, that they cannot lose, in heaven.  We have believed the lies of the devil and we live in the church age of the apostate church that has fallen away from the Truth.  If there is anyone who needs to check some of these things out, Google video games like “Hitman, Grand Theft Auto V, Payne, etc.  and research sex and violence in these games and watch the videos.  They have sex with prostitutes who are then killed with baseball bats.  There are strip clubs and graphic sex in these games as well as torture where cities have grinders that humans are put in and lotteries are held to see who goes through the grinder for the entertainment of everyone else.  Do you really think that a person who is truly “In Christ” can be entertained by such  perversion and sadistic violence?  These people are all in our churches today and marriages and families are being destroyed because of it and the church doesn’t have a clue how to help.  How can we claim to love Jesus and not love what He loves and hate what He hates?  We grieve the Holy Spirit with our sin and expect to receive all the blessings and GOOD promises of God?  How deceived can we be?

I thought I was done, but the Lord says no.  There is a pride in His leadership where people think God has given them the truth, the whole truth and they are God’s man being raised up to further His kingdom and others are wrong.  When someone comes into their church, they will spend time with them teaching them THE TRUTH and this might even be truth God has revealed to them, but not the complete picture.  They believe that if they just teach the person the truth God has given them and baptized them the right way and they have been taught the right way, then we will be the church to finally see them set free and walk in righteousness.  There is pride and a form of gloating behind this and when the person becomes seven times worse than what they originally were when they come to them, they can’t deal with it, don’t want to hear it, cut you off.  Knowledge does not change a heart.  Being dipped in water doesn’t change a heart that doesn’t want to be changed.  A person has to hate his sin and repent before being saved and that starts with a message of repentance and the consequences or rejecting Christ and what He provided.  You are not empowered if you have not repented.  You are not delivered from something if you have not repented.  No one preaches that today and there is no such thing as salvation without repentance and that is why so many in our churches think they are saved and they are not and we are at fault. We go through the religious rituals of baptism, saying the prayer and everything and expect that to do the job without ever requiring repentance, denying self, picking up your cross and following Him.  I can’t tell you how many churches I have been too like this.  I think, this time things will be different.  This is the church that will make a difference in a loved one’s life.  This is the church I was looking for, etc.  They take the poor wretched sinner under their wing and teach him what God has given them thinking the same thing I was thinking.  We’ll just teach him this and that, none of which speaks of repentance before salvation, baptize him and he will be set free and good to go.  WRONG!  He ends up worse each time, mocking God all the more as he has managed one more time to make fools out of those who are supposed to be the most discerning and powerful in God’s kingdom.  Knowledge puffs up and doesn’t change a heart.  There is a religious pride behind this that the Lord will expose and deal with.  No one is given “all the truth” and we need to submit one to another in the fear of the Lord.  If we refuse to do that, we have disqualified ourselves to receive the new wine in the next move of the Spirit.  That is one reason the Lord wants people in the five fold ministry to be together and share what the Lord is giving them.  We need to be humble and dependent on one another.  I had a worldwide minister say to me recently, “You know, what you teach goes against so much of what biblical scholars today teach.  None the less, I will read what you say.”  There was such an arrogance and haughtiness of spirit that relied on biblical scholars.  If I mentioned this spirit filled minister’s name, everyone would know him and I am not here to shame anyone, just to teach.  The Lord said to me with a very irritated and stern tone, “You tell him that the Pharisees, scribes and rulers in my day were the biblical scholars.  They knew their “scriptures” in and out and by heart and everything in their scriptures pointed to Me standing in front of them on that day, in that hour, in that generation and they still missed the hour of their visitation”.  Then the Lord told me to tell him that spiritual things are spiritually discerned and you will not learn them in seminary.  As a matter of fact, seminary may disqualify you from this next move of the Spirit because the Lord uses the week, uneducated and despised things of the world to confound the wise because no flesh shall glory in His presence and He will not put new wine into old bottles.”  It was a strong rebuke from the Lord to those who trust in themselves that they are wise and scholarly.  He was not pleased with this renowned minister.

If you love Jesus, you will hate sin.  If you love Jesus, you will think about Him all the time and want to spend time with Him.  You do not want to displease Him.  What do we set our affections on and what comes before Christ?  Do you have idols or selfish ambition in your heart?

I thought I was done again, but He has more.  If you were engaged to be married and your betrothed said to you, “I will be the best wife there is 364 days of the year.  I will clean the house, cook gourmet meals, always look good for you and be the best wife ever 364 days of the year.  Just give me one day a year where I can commit adultery with my old boyfriends.  Would that be acceptable?  Would you agree to that?  What about four hours?  How about ten minutes? Would you marry someone like that?  This bride has not given her whole heart to her future husband.  She still has other lovers even though she commits adultery only once a year.  Can you imagine Jesus coming back for a bride with that attitude?  With hearts given to idols?  NO, HE IS COMING FOR A GLORIOUS CHURCH, WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE.
