Is there a person you know and love that is a gifted Bible teacher? Maybe someone in your life that you can trust whatever he or she says?
Do you think it's possible that you could be led astray by this person? Most wouldn't even consider this option.
Casting Crowns has a song that really spoke to me when I first heard it years ago. Here's just an excerpt from the lyrics -
As darkness pulls the strings
Ecclesiastes 1:9 says there is NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN. Are these people glorifying God or glorifying man? Are they lifting up the name of Jesus or are they talking about what they can do? I wouldn't want to hear this when I arrive in heaven - Matthew 7:21-23 Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!
The Bible is clear that many will be deceived in the last days! That means even the ones you know and trust. It is so vital to ask the Lord for the gift of discerning of spirits and to seek wisdom in your decisions. Even decisions about who you listen to, follow or even the church you go to. Who you surround yourself with will have a direct impact on your walk with the Lord, good or bad!!
The Christian must have a spiritual radar that detects the difference not only between bad and good but also among good, better, and best.
Discernment is not just recognizing the good, better, best or bad, but it's also not doing what the Word of God says. Many are deceived because of their own lack of understanding, lack of obedience to the Word. The Bible is not just a book we can pick and choose what we want. Each verse is a promise, a command and an instruction of how we should live, be and act!
We also have to get our eyes OFF of the gifts and the manifestations of the gifts but instead.....Keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. We need to spend time in His Presence, getting back to our first love! We need to get back to the HOLY FEAR OF THE LORD. The awe of the LORD!! We need to know His Word so much that if someone says something, we will immediately recognize it's not of God. As we abide in the Lord, we bear fruit John 15. When we are washed in the Word, our life reflects it, our actions and words manifest godly things. Signs and wonders will follow - but we need to be sanctified in Truth!
My prayer is that in these last days, we will ALL seek the Lord on a deeper level than we've ever known. That God will open our eyes and give us great wisdom and discernment. And if you recognize something is off, pray for that person. Pray for those following them. Ask the Lord to intervene!!
Ken - please pray for Ken to have continuous work through the winter.
Michele - please continue to pray for healing.
Ministry - God has been giving us some pinpoint words of knowledge for others and have seen instant healing. We are continuing to go deeper with our Church and homegroup - and growing.
Praise - Love Montana more than I can express. I thank God almost daily for the views, the people and the simpler life. I do miss my KC restaurants and some conveniences... so if you're coming for a visit, don't be surprised if I have you bring a care package. :)
I am so thankful for those who reach out and ask me to pray. It's such an honor. Recently at church a testimony came forth someone was healed of cancer who was on hospice. They said the Lord took them to heaven in a vision and showed her it was because of the prayers of the Saints.
Let's keep praying for each other!
Hugs, love and prayers.

God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.
The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted). We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord.
We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.
The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers. We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church.
In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.
Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world. To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas. Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!! We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.
