If we are honest, the truth sets free. Many however in the body of Christ, will choose to believe a lie, even when truth is exposed. There are many reasons for this. Some individuals do not want to ever admit they believed a false doctrine. Others want to hold on the the possibility that what did not work for others, will one day work in their favor. There are those who are so caught up in spiritual leaders, that they blindly serve these men,(and women) and pledge allegiance, to the point they are unable to hear God warning them of false doctrine. A lot of folk in the body of Christ are steeped in their denominational doctrine. And refuse to change what they have always done. The minority, who accept truth are set free indeed. When you can admit you listened too, followed and taught a doctrine of demons, that is the first step to spiritual maturity. When you can share your experience with others, they too are now in position to be free if they choose. You now will recognize the catch phrases, and code words that used to make you shout, but now cause you to shake your head. You will more easily be able to say no. And not sit in services where lies are being preached. You can stand alone with the Lord, and not desire the stroking you were used too. Whose side are you leaning on today? Let it be the Lord's side. His Spirit is the Spirit of truth and leads into all truth. You and you alone must determine your course. Choose freedom today. No man can hold you where you desire to be free.
Don't fight your prophetic nature. Don't try to change and be more of an encourager, so you will fit in or get more speaking engagements. He did not wire you to flow the crowd. When He shows you death and destruction, just say "It is what it is. Embrace who you are. If you fall into the pattern that has been set up in the organized church, you may lose some of your prophetic fire. If you try to be a pastor, teacher or motivational speaker, your gift will diminish. Be bold and firm, take no prisoners. It is better to obey God than man. Accept that you see the hard things the deep things. And leave the encouragement, teaching and motivation tho those He called to it. It is not popular but there is a place for the doom and gloom prophets. Just read Jeremiah's story. Don't be tricked into the name it claim it, speak it in to existence false doctrine. I know of quite a few situations , local and national where entire churches were speaking a positive confession, and one or 2 prophetic people tried to warn of tragedy coming and they were called negative. And the end result was tragedy, and not the positive confessions. Wake up and pay attention. You will learn a lot. Get your head cleared of denominational rhetoric, and hear His Spirit. More tragedy is coming to the church regarding beloved "celebrity leaders", and also on this nation. When the leaders fall, don't follow the crowd by trying to down play it or say they finished their course. See it for what it is, the judgement of the Lord. When you acknowledge this, you will be able to handle more hard truths that are to come. Don't be shocked at who falls. You have been prophetically warned. Eyes must be on Christ and not any man or woman. Whatever good came from any spiritual leader was God using him or her. Don't get caught up in any human flesh.
