Have you ever heard someone say, they had a word, for someone, and they said, they came in the name of the Lord, but you had that strange queasy feeling, that perhaps, they were a “wolf in sheeps clothing” who really was just a fortune teller?
They were trying to get you to believe them, for whatever reason, but you just did not feel good about it.
There are many people, who use the word of the Lord, or even say they come in the name of the Lord, and they have not been instructed by God to speak a word. In other words, they are phonies.
In Deuteronomy 18:20 BUT THE PROPHET WHICH SHALL PRESUME TO SPEAK A WORD IN MY NAME, WHICH I HAVE NOT COMMANDED HIM TO SPEAK, OR THAT SHALL SPEAK IN THE NAME OF OTHER GODS, EVEN THAT PROPHET SHALL DIE. AND IF THOU SAY IN THINE HEART, HOW SHALL WE KNOW THE WORD WHICH THE LORD HATH NOT SPOKEN? WHEN A PROPHET SPEAKETH IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, IF THE THING FOLLOW NOT, NOR COME TO PASS, THAT IS THE THING WHICH THE LORD HATH NOT SPOKE, BUT THE PROPHET HATH SPOKEN IT, PRESUMPTUOUSLY: THOU SHALT NOT BE AFRAID OF HIM.
I just feel in my heart, that we are to be ever so careful, especially in these days, with those who says they come in the name of the Lord. Or with whoever we may keep company with. As friends.
There are so many of us, that are vulnerable, that we search. We search for love, and we search for friends, in Christ, but there are deceivers out there. They want to take your pain, say for instance, in the loss of a loved one, and they want you to think, they have a connection. Maybe even into the spiritual world.
This is wrong, for one thing, because we are not called to talk to the dead. Necromancy. Remember this word, it is not one, that comes up in normal conversation. But you need to know what it means. Webster says this: The art or practice of conjuring up the spirits of the dead for purposes of magically revealing the future.
Talking to the dead, praying to the dead, praying to family members, these kind of things are offensive to God. Do you rememeber Saul from the Bible? The King, of Israel who hated David. He did this, and then He died. He wanted to talk to Samuel the prophet, and went to a witch, a fortune teller, or whoever she was, with her familar spirit, the Bible says, and this very much offended God. Yeah he got a word, from the spirit, and it predicted his death, and the death of his sons. Read the story yourself from I Samuel Chapter 28. And yes, I recommend reading a King James Bible for the anointing. And truth, where the words, have not been changed.
Folks, we have to be careful, who we get spiritual help from, and you must be careful, especially again, if they say they come in the name of the Lord. We are called to test, and try the spirits.
BELOVED, BELIEVE NOT EVERY SPIRIT, BUT TRY THE SPIRITS WHETHER THEY ARE OF GOD: BECAUSE MANY FALSE PROPHETS ARE GONE OUT INTO THE WORLD. I JOHN 4:1
We are called to pray. To God only, by the name of Jesus Christ. We are not to pray to an angel, or to a saint, or anyone or anything but God almighty.
Here again, in Deuteronomy 18 it talks about how we are to be aware, and to be careful. Dear friends, there are many people, who have fallen victim to these lies from the devil. Don’t be one of them. Read this carefully.
WHEN THOU ART COME INTO THE LAND WHICH THE LORD THY GOD GIVETH THEE, THOU SHALT NOT LEARN TO DO AFTER THE ABOMINATIONS OF THOSE NATIONS. THERE SHALL NOT BE FOUND AMONG YOU ANY ONE THAT MAKETH HIS SON OR HIS DAUGHTER TO PASS THROUGH THE FIRE, OR THAT USETH DIVINATION OR AN OBSERVER OF TIMES, OR AN ENCHANTER, OR A WITCH. OR A CHARMER OR A CONSULTER WITH FAMILIAR SPIRITS, OR A WIZARD OR A NECROMANCER. FOR ALL THAT DO THESE THINGS ARE AN ABOMINATION UNTO THE LORD, AND BECAUSE OF THESE ABOMINATIONS THE LORD THY GOD DOTH DRIVE THEM OUT FROM BEFORE THEE. THOU SHALT BE PERFECT WITH THE LORD THY GOD. Deuteronomy 18:9-13.
You really need to see this. And know, we are called not to be with those kind of people.
I Corinthians 5: 13. BUT THEM THAT ARE WITHOUT GOD JUDGETH. THEREFORE PUT AWAY FROM AMONG YOURSELVES THAT WICKED PERSON.
There is a lot to this, but I see many do not open their King James Bible, and read the truth from God concerning these things. These kind of people open the door to hell itself. Because they bring in demonic spirits, that are not of God. Do you ever wonder why things go bad? Or there are generational curses? This happens, when people lift up anything else, besides God almighty. He is a jealous God, and this is also a form of idolatry.
And again, people are so vulnerable. Do not be deceived. The enemy, has used many “disguises” and masquerades himself, even saying they come in the name of the Lord. It is sad, that it is not more evident in some ways, but you have to pray, you have to build yourself up, in the truth of what God says.
You need to submit to God, resist the devil, and flee from these things, and yes even people, who are not really Christians. Look at the fruit. Sometimes, you may not see it right away. But trust your gut instinct, which is the Holy spirit.
Pray again, and beware. Because you want to be right with God, and you want to know for sure, that the word you may get would be from a true prophet of God.
I am so careful at this time, and I pray, never to be deceived. But I look at what God says, and I look at the fruit of what those that say they come in the name of the Lord, and I pray.
I pray you do as well. Just a thought today, and praying it is received in truth.
For I am a truth seeker of the gospel, of Jesus Christ. I get that from heaven above, from my King James Bible, and His Holy Spirit, by the truth of Jesus Christ. Yes pray, and repent, if you have done this even in error. By listening to a liar from hell. Get right with God, because you do not want to reap the curses of these things. You want to please God.
And I say this, “I plead the blood of Jesus over this post. And the truth of it. God will bless those who bless me, and curse those who curse me.” It is my hedge of protection, in matters like this.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
