Time to blow off some steam. It’s the so-called Christians again. A couple of experiences in the past week is what brought all of this up. A dear friend of mine did a very nice post about my gifted psychic brother Michael and her minister scolded her for being involved in the devils work. And I was a guest on a podcast last week with Tom Barnard and they had on a minister who claims that the world is coming to an end October 7th of this year. He even had the balls to say that God closed the doors to Heaven four months ago. You should have heard some of his ridiculous statements.
I would like to say this as clearly as possible. HAVING THE GIFT OF PROPHECY IS NOT THE WORK OF SATAN. IF THESE PHUCKING CHRISTIANS WOULD ACTUALLY GET OUT OF THE OLD TESTAMENT AND READ THE NEW TESTATMENT, THEY WOULD SEE THAT IT SAYS RIGHT IN CORINTHIANS 12: 4-11 THAT THE GIFT OF PROPHECY COMES FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT. When you get out of the Old Testament and read the New Testament, you’ll see all the positiveness about The Gift of Prophecy.
Yes, the Old Testament warns us of false prophets and I TOTALLY AGREE. There’s a lot of them out there. But the Old Testament also states in many places that the priests and prophets hung out together all the time and that’s where the priests got their information. FROM THE PROPHETS. It’s all right in the Old Testament. There IS a difference between a fortune teller and a prophet but Christians who are stuck in the Old Testament clump them all together and that’s ridiculous.
People say to me, “yes, but that was back then when there were prophets. We no longer have prophets.” WHAT????? I hear the same nonsense about the Gift of Healing. “It was only available back then. Where do people come up with this stuff? Oh, that’s right. Their preachers.
There are many modern day prophets who use their gift of prophecy for the good of mankind. We don’t know about them because the church doesn’t recognize them and you really need to ask yourself WHY IT DOESN’T. The Bible tells us we have the Gift of Discernment which means if we listen to the still small voice within, we will know if we are in the midst of a conman or someone who truly cares about us. Those who have been taught by their religious leaders about the Gift of Discernment know to use it when determining right from wrong.
Unfortunately there are many people who have no knowledge of their inner voice and PUT ALLTHEIR FAITH IN THEIR MINISTER/RABBI/PRIEST and trust ONLY what they say. They are the walking dead. They’ve given all their power over to someone to guide them and that’s just plain scary, not to mention very irresponsible on the part of their religious teacher.
And what about this Reverend who says the world is coming to an end October 7th and that God has closed the door to Heaven. OH MY GOD. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? How loving and God-like is that to put everyone in fear for the next four months.
Oh my gosh, this drives me nuts. Talk about Satan’s work. These ministers/priests who are always talking about Satan are giving this red suited devil a whole lot more power than they give to God and that’s what I find so wrong, outdated, incorrect, and fear based.
When someone tells me they’re a Christian, I ask Old Testament or New Testament? It’s very helpful to have the clarification because they are very different. I am a New Testament Christian. Jesus’ teachings and my daily conversations with God is what’s MOST important to me.
So to my friend’s minister and to all of you out there who continue to teach that the Gift of Prophecy comes from Satan, pull your head out of your ass and read Corinthians. Shame on you for distorting your position of power AND THANK GOD FOR KARMA.
This is the part in all my blogs were I go back and take out all the swear words and make it all sound more loving and appropriate but today, I’m not going to. Today I’m going to push POST and send it on it’s way and hopefully it will make sense in spite of Mercury being in retrograde.
