The need for deeper discernment By Shirley Carter

~ It saddens my heart to see the lack of discernment in the Body. Many ministers who the multitudes are applauding God has revealed to me, are wolves in sheep's clothing. When He gave me a prophetic dream, the wolf was right in front of the sheep who had no clue it was in danger (the sheep & wolf were the same color, white). Even after the wolf walked away, then suddenly began charging at the sheep, the sheep still had no idea it was in danger. It was the Good Shepherd (Jesus) and God's true shepherding leaders shouting warnings that prevented the devouring attacks. Then again, through an intercessor, The Spirit of the Lord admonished me "I don't care how many people are applauding them, if I call them wolves in sheep's clothing they are...warn My Sheep!" God has also judged His people by giving them leaders of their own desires because they sought "itchy ears" preaching. He that has ears let them hear!

The spiral effect has accelerated. Popular "ministers" now hobnobbing with those who openly support New Age and deny Jesus as the Only Way. So one would ask, what would Paul The Apostle do? Would He compromise and join as if preaching the same Gospel. For even he declared "If I or angels would preach another Gospel, let him be accursed." Please understand the need for deeper discernment. When Paul was followed by the woman who encouraged others to follow him saying "these men preach the way, hear them", though the words were correct, Paul had discernment by the Spirit to know this was the Devil speaking and cast him out of the woman. Is anyone listening????

Saints of God...popularity, big churches, even testimonies of many people "saved" are not true avenues of discernment. There are false conversions and what we call falling away because the pure Gospel empowered by the Holy Spirit, did not convert the hearts. I'm afraid emotionalism, sentiment, niceties, appear to be the call of the hour. Yet these are no match for the great end time deception that has already crept into popular Christianity. The main power behind seducing and deceptive spirits is that the prey do not know they are deceived. It is the Holy Spirit Who reveals the secret things that many cannot see, He especially does so through His Apostles & Prophets. Shalom...

part 1 - I was frustrated and seeking the Lord for days concering His will for my life and the actions of some leaders. Along comes a godly (carrier of the presence of God and intercesser women walks in says you need to read chapter 9 gives me the book and walks out without saying a word after handing me the book..) it was hard to believe who this prophetic Word was from ? This Word is from Rod Parsley which made me go what? For the day of the prophet is upon you,says the Lord-the day_not of man made prophets,but of My prophets .Have you not read in My Word and gained understanding that up until my Son there was not a prophet greater than John the Baptist my forerunner went before Me, it is time for my forerunner again.Upon my first advent into this earth I sent My forerunner with an explicit message.I would have you to know tha I am no respecter of persons and as I sent my forerunner that day,so will Isend my forerunners this day. I would have you to know that it is no different this day. They shall come forth not from those areas you would assume,even as john came not forth from jeresulam. John came forth from the wilderness. My forerunners shall not come from ivory places. They shall not come from schools of higher learning. They shall come forth from My presence,where they have walked with Me in the wilderness,where there has been neither man nor beast to minister unto them. Iwould not have their message defiled ,nor would I have their message marred by mere mortal men. For I the Lord God shall speak by My Spirit unto them. They shall come forth eating locust and wild honey, and by that I would say they have no dependency upon the World. They will not depen upon man or organizations. They shall not depend on anything but Me to sustain them,for I,the Lord your God have them right now in the wilderness. I have them in the backplaces of the desertand I am feeding them with manna from heaven. I am sustaining them by My breath and I am breathing on them afresh, for it is almost time for their demonstration .When they come forth,hear My voice in their words , and gain understanding for what I will say. For I the Lord shallbring them forth and because they depend on no man their voice shall not be marred.Because they depend on no organization, they shall speak but what I shall give them to speak. But know this,their message shall not be what many have thought, for they have come not with enticing words of mans wisdom but in demonstration of power. and know this the eye of the Lord is in their head,the voice of the Lord is in their mouth , My hearing is in their ears,and they shall see what I see.
By this know that they shall receive the first part of the message. Even as the message of John coming forth out of the wilderness was REPENT ,so shall the message of My prophet this day be. They shall not be as many of you have desired,ladeling all the glitter of My kingdom upon you, for My message is one of love and humility. Though it sounds a harsh message , the message of repentance is actually the greatest message I can give to My people.

part 2 The message of repentance shall bring refreshing from my kingdom. As the prophets bring forth that message, they say repent of IDOLTRY , as they burst your idols and expose even your sin ,as John the Baptist exposed the sin of those in Jereselum, so shall you be quick to repent. I desire to send refreshing but first must come repentance. As you repent you shall feel the refreshing of My Spirit . The latter rain shall ride upon the wings of repentance. When I hear your voice crying unto Me, Iwill blow the spirit of refreshingupon you and you shall be restored.In this final hour II will restore healing to your hands. Wait until you hear the anthem ringing from the prophets,for Iam a great God and greatly to be praised. Refreshing and restoration shall come and the world shall come unto you.. In the restoration move you shall receive what I call Promise.Repentance shall bring refreshing and refreshing restoration.There is left but one phase for my prophets to speak,which is the proclamation of my return. So repent and I shall refresh you: and then shall be the restoration of all things and finally my return. but I cannot return unless the way is paved, and I cannot pave the way until My prophets speak for Me. The sound of their hoofbeats are nigh at hand!listen well. You have walked so much in the flesh that it is hard for you to disceren what really comes from my Spirit. but I will teach you. I will tell you. I have my prophets in the wilderness ,but the wilderness gate is open and the prophets are nigh at hand!
Thoughts EVEN PERRY STONE SAID THERE IS COMING A CONFRONTATION OF PROFESSING PROPHETS WITHIN THE CHURCH HINTING TO A CONFRONTATION WITH THE CHURCH . Thank you for shirleys post. many leaders I get a check and wonder why. usually the Lord will teach and give me scripture but the vast crowd doesn't see it that way sometimes it's condmning and very lonely but when God restores me after burning me to a cinder He may have a clear route to flow. You wouldn't happen to have any honey or locust would you ?
