Don't Miss God

You know, going through comments on blogs and other sites, I notice something about the people supporting Bentley and this revival. They protest opposition to the apostate with mental reasoning and new church buzzwords, like "open your mind", "you gonna miss God", "this is a move of God ("jihad"), "mighty miracles are being performed"--stuff you hear from people who are not even of the Christian faith. Muslims, even certain psychics, and other new agers say some of these things. The Lakeland revival prophets, apostles, and groupies point to what you can feel, and what one may hope to see, thought they saw, and not sure of what they saw...They talk of fire, of the awesome worship music, of a "major shift in the spirit realm" (the "new" prophets and apostles say this almost every day for some years now), revelation, and on and on...

But where is the Word of God in Spirit and in Truth?

Sure, He said in My name we will cast out devils...speak in new tongues...lay hands on the sick and they will recover. Problem is this does not work with counterfeits, and with new age masqueraders. Working miracles with signs following should be of God, not of the devil. And what is of the devil is of the sensual realm most of the time, except for the many apparitions he sends to the undiscerning.

Folks, keep away from the new apostles and prophets, the new apostolic prophetic types. Like I said yesterday, God has called forth apostles and prophets, but those following Wagner of Global Harvest Ministries I will steer clear from. Do you really think mankind can subdue the governments and political systems of the world and present them to God; so that Jesus may return? Some offshoots of this movement do not believe in the rapture for this reason, such as the Manifest Sons of God also known as Joel's Army. Look into the Word, the dominionist theology is not supported in anyway. There has been a gross twisting derived from taking a few scriptures to make a name for oneself! This movement is based in the root of pride and deception.

I am just tapping into this mess, and will be writing more on their theology in the future. For now, consider this from Zechariah, as when Jesus returns to Jerusalem, hostile nations will be on this earth:

1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.
6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:
7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
