“If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.” Deuteronomy 13:1-4.
If a prophet’s root is of fear and not of belief in God, they are not of God. The “fear” is the the poison in the pot known as leaven. The fear they are promoting directs our belief in their word and not God’s Word. “He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.” Psalms 91:4.
A person cannot be saved without the draw of the Holy Spirit (John 6:44) which convicts them of sin and draws them to repentance. If a person is saved out of fear, they are not truly saved. It is the preaching and teaching of the Word of God that allows the Holy Spirit to draw….not Shemitahs, Harbingers and other divinations. The Holy Spirit isn’t going to witness to one’s spirit that they are a Child of God while sitting under divination!
There are many Christian’s who are being drawn to these seducing spirits with a root of fear. God did not give us a spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7). The only fear we, as a Child of God should have is a fear of the Lord. In today’s world, we have no fear of the Lord but fear of man. It is entirely possible to discern the “prophet” and the root of their prophecy without having your head in the sand. I have been blocked and slandered by so called prophets for rejecting the “fear” they were preaching. My husband has even had the same so called prophet tell him the last person who came against her came down with cancer and heart problems (witch craft) simply because he rejected the fear she was teaching and chose to believe God. This is not keeping your head in the sand but understanding your home is not of this world.
Can and will bad things happen to a Child of God? Yes, the Bible is riddled with trials and tribulations of the saints. All one has to do is read the end of Hebrews chapter 11. “…others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yes, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:” Hebrews 11:36. The thing about it is, we have not been given God’s grace (yet) for what will come. Our vain imaginations or fear, can kill us a 1000 times a day (in September according to these books) but God’s grace is for today, not for what we imagine for tomorrow. When the day comes that we face trials and tribulations, God’s grace will be sufficient for that day as well.
“While I (Jesus) was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” John 17:12-17.
We, as Saints of God, build up the hedge by preaching and proclaiming His Word – not man’s schemes. – Donna Warren
