Thou Shalt not Covet; Socialism Covets

  … I will put my law within them, and I will write it upon their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.~ Jeremiah 31:33

God, through the prophet Jeremiah, used those sublime words for the ages to teach the Jewish people the real meaning behind the Ten Commandments. Yes, the Jews understood that these were the rules God wanted to be obeyed as part of their sacred covenant with his chosen people, but on a more profound level God eventually wanted to transcend the Ten Commandments chiseled in stone for tablets of the Ten Commandments written in the hearts of the people.

Think about it. How far would humanity be if lawyers, politicians, businesses, government and society stopped coveting and self-regulated themselves? For example, would we need an SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) and countless numbers of “watchdog” organizations to stop thieves – from a Bernie Madoff who coveted $65 billion to your common thief who steals your laptop?

If Jesus were asked today to summarize the Ten Commandments into one, I’d like to think he would say, “Thou shalt not covet.” Why? Look at the headlines of your local, national, international and Internet news sources:

“Owned by China: Beijing agrees to buy more U.S. debt”;
“Obama to the rescue!” – as Wall Street lost 50 percent of its value just since August 2008;
“Schenectady, N.Y., considers martial law over police woes”;
“New York governor’s’ secret plot to tax the rich”;
“Congress’ ‘hypocrisy’ on corporate trips ban angers hotel industry”;
“Mexico offers $2 million bounty for top drug lords”;
“Another trillion dollar stimulus plan”;
“We’ll give it back: 9 out of top 10 AIG bonus recipients return money”

Society has devolved so far from not only the original intent of the Constitution’s framers and Natural Law, but from what the framers – from George Washington on down – considered paramount to maintaining our republic: Christianity, a religion that came out of Judaism. Washington once famously uttered that, “It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.” Was America’s first and arguably greatest president some lowbrow Bible-thumper or some right-wing religious fanatic for saying such words? Did he and the framers actually believe that We, the People, could create a republic based on the Judeo-Christian traditions of intellectual thought? Indeed they did.

Not only did the framers believe in God, the Bible and Natural Law, they sincerely believed in infusing Judeo-Christian principles into all of our founding documents, including The Mayflower Compact (1620), The Declaration of Independence (1776), The Articles of Confederation (1781), The Constitution (1789) and the Bill of Rights (1791). Even the constitutions of all 50 states are permeated with biblical admonitions and overt modeling of moral laws and righteous government directly from the Scriptures.

Come, my friends, let us reason together. Do you think that in 1609, 1709, 1809 or 1909 we would be carrying a national debt of over $11 trillion, which we have presently in 2009? Economic experts estimate that the actual U.S. debt is much higher being between $53 trillion and $56 trillion. Could we not have turned that $11 trillion dollar national debt into a $11 trillion surplus if we had crafted policy about those four sublime words? – Thou shalt not covet.

Before we can change external stimuli like the economy, societal morality, Wall Street, the Supreme Court, Congress, the president, Social Security, Medicare, abortion, or any part of our leviathan government apparatus, we have got to change our heart. Since this is in the metaphysical domain, this “change” cannot occur by media propaganda, political sloganeering, positive thinking or some other artifice of man. This is a job for God. We have got to allow God to change our thinking, repent and return to following the Ten Commandments, beginning with the last commandment – Thou shalt not covet.

By obeying this profound aphorism, I believe that American society could comprehensively improve on an exponential level. JFK once said, “A rising tide lifts all boats.” This means that through free-market capitalism the rich can become richer, the poor can become middle-class and if they work hard enough, eventually become rich themselves. The only barrier to what Jefferson called “the pursuit of happiness” would be the limits placed on our own selves. Obama’s socialist remedies are rooted in coveting the possessions or another and are therefore antithetical to the pursuit of happiness.

For example, I love to watch the forensic detective shows and learn how these talented people are able to capture the most surreptitious and devious criminals. The leitmotiv I see with virtually all of these criminal cases is that the crimes are rooted in covetousness:

A man kills his wife because he wants to marry his lover, and the scoundrel is too cheap to pay child support – that’s coveting another woman who is not your wife;

A woman opens up her home to take care of the elderly and systematically poisons them with arsenic so she can collect the insurance and secure a new warm body for her ghastly philanthropy – that’s coveting the money of another;

A boy was told he was a golden child and would eventually become a doctor by his family and friends. Later he develops a diabolical resentment when his plans don’t materialize. He blames his parents and viciously kills them, his wife, children and his rich lover who enabled his charade before he is caught by the police – that is coveting a career and the praise of men.
The assorted cabal of lobbying firms, shyster lawyers, careerists, incompetents and political hacks in Washington, D.C., who are presently “murdering” America’s economy should seriously consider the last commandment, Thou shalt not covet.

If only Obama’s mantra, “change” meant repentance and he as our leader followed the Scripture found in 2 Chronicles 7:14:

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
But it is not to be because Obama is a political hack. He has but one design, absolute POWER. So far, his stealing of $7 trillion from America, together with his vice president, Joe Biden, saying, “It’s our patriotic duty to pay taxes,” raises coveting to an art form. Obama’s polices aren’t about change (repentance) but adhere to the anti-commandment, Thou shalt covet.

Obama can’t repent because he is self-righteous, a narcissist, the prince of covetousness and a purveyor of socialism, or what Churchill called, “the gospel of envy.” This Manchurian Candidate will continue the ruination of this country that he, his wife and his administration utterly hate until he has bankrupted it.

Only divine intervention can save us now, since Reaganism and reason have long been abandoned.

Non-compromisers: American soldiers say, “No!”

Article found here

states American soldiers pledge to refuse illegal orders – including “state of emergency” orders that could include disarming or detaining American citizens.

Among the orders the soldiers are pledging NOT to obey:

We will NOT obey any order to disarm the American people. … Any such order today would also be an act of war against the American people, and thus an act of treason. We will not make war on our own people, and we will not commit treason by obeying any such treasonous order.

We will NOT obey any order to conduct warrantless searches of the American people, their homes, vehicles, papers, or effects – such as warrantless house-to house searches for weapons or persons. … We expect that warrantless searches of homes and vehicles, under some pretext, will be the means used to attempt to disarm the people.

We will NOT obey any order to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to trial by military tribunal. … Any attempt to apply the laws of war to American civilians, under any pretext, such as against domestic “militia” groups the government brands “domestic terrorists,” is an act of war and an act of treason.

We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state, or to enter with force into a state, without the express consent and invitation of that state’s legislature and governor. … It is the militia of a state and of the several states that the Constitution contemplates being used in any context, during any emergency within a state, not the standing army.

We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty and declares the national government to be in violation of the compact by which that state entered the Union.

We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps. … Such tactics … by the Nazis in the Warsaw Ghetto, and by the Imperial Japanese in Nanking, turn[ed] entire cities into death camps. Any such order to disarm and confine the people of an American city will be an act of war and thus an act of treason.

We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext. … Such a vile order to forcibly intern Americans without charges or trial would be an act of war against the American people, and thus an act of treason, regardless of the pretext used.

We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control” during any emergency, or under any other pretext. We will consider such use of foreign troops against our people to be an invasion and an act of war.

We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies, under any emergency pretext whatsoever.

We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.
“We will not make war against our own people. We will not commit treason. We will defend the Republic,” the organization’s website states. “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually affirm our oath and pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

Julie Meyer False Prophetess False Jesus


In a prophecy or dream that can be found here

Julie Meyer describes a Jesus contrary to the Word of God. Emphasis are mine:

The Lord came to me and said, “I want you to meet My friends.” I was really excited thinking I was on a journey to meet Isaiah, Jeremiah, Peter, Zechariah, Moses. He took me by the hand, and we started flying around in the sky, kind of like a cartoon loop to loop. I was not scared even though I was extremely high above the ground and the earth. We were just flying around, and I could feel the breeze on my face. I could feel His hand holding my hand, and I was so high off of the ground and loved feeling the wind on my face. I was so aware that I was not afraid, just holding onto His hand.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[She does not tell us whether she was asleep or awake when this alleged event happened. Either way, it is astral projection. It sounds more like a plot from a vampire movie.]

All of a sudden, I saw His face change. He set His face intently to the earth and we started to head directly to the ground. I looked at Him, I looked at His face and I could see in His eyes and in His face a determination.

“…Therefore I have set My face like a flint…” (Isaiah 50:7).

I kept thinking we would surely not hit the ground, but I looked at His face and it was set. I felt this horrible dread come upon me, even though I was holding His hand.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[This horrible dread? Even though she was holding his hand? Please, think about that. Gods’ word says, “I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” “Perfect love casts out all fear.” IF you were holding the hand of Jesus would there be any fear? At this point she should have called out to the real Jesus.]

We were flying very fast in a head dive toward the ground and He did not look like He was going to turn around.

All of a sudden, we exploded right through the ground! I felt the pound on my head. It was like watching an action movie. I could hear the sound of the earth exploding around us, like the sound of standing right beside a rocket ship as it blasts off into space. It was deafening. We were traveling right through the earth, and the Lord’s face never turned to the left or the right; it was set–straight ahead.

I could see with my eyes every moment–coming near the earth, hitting the ground, and blasting right through it. I could see the earth, the rock, the water, a burning fire, and I could feel the very tearing and burning of my skin. I was really feeling the rock and earth tear into my skin, as if it was really happening to me. I could feel horrible pain in my dream.

We suddenly came to the other side and burst out through the earth. I stood there, and I looked down at my body–it was all torn, my skin was torn, and I could feel the pain of it–but it was not about me.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[What kind of Jesus would take you on a ride like that and then not even care that you were ripped and torn? —but it was not about me she reassures usSometimes when people say that, it really is about them. They just do not want to come out and admit it–they think it makes them look more spiritual or something.]

Jesus looked at me, right up in my face, eye to eye, and He said, “I want you to meet My friends.”

Redeemed Hippie>>>[Pay attention to these friends.]

I was crying because all of my body hurt. I was thinking that surely He would notice how badly I was hurt, and how badly my skin was wounded and torn, but He did not.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[If I, a mere human being can have compassion and mercy at this point, then why oh why would not Jesus? Would He not be at least comforting her at this point? Was his attitude one of  just toughen up, Julie. There are others worse off than you. This is the very same Jesus who kicks little old ladies in the face in the name of healing. This is the same Jesus that could care less about the infirmed who comes to him on stage to be healed by modern day faith healers–those who use the sick and infirmed among them to build their personal kingdoms.]

I looked around and saw that we were in a very crowded place. I had never been there before, but I knew it was India. It had a horrible smell, there were so many people everywhere, and I was following the Lord. He was not even looking at me. It was like He wanted me to feel the pain of the tear of my skin.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[She knew it was India? Sounds to me more like a vision of hell. She thinks she was following the Lord. If she had tested this from the beginning she may have saved herself a lot of pain and disillusions.  He wanted her to FEEL the pain and the tear of her skin? Where is this found in the word of God? Rather the truth is, “Come to me all you who are weary and I will bring you rest.” JMs’ experience was with a false Jesus.]

There were little children everywhere. There were beautiful young girls in cages, and Jesus was with each one of them. He would just stand there with them. The seemingly forgotten of the earth were those whom the Lord called His friends. I saw children lying on the ground with flies on their skin, and I saw them pass from this horrible life to the next and the minute they awakened in eternity, He was there, for each one, He was there. NOT ONE of them is forgotten in His eyes, not one of them.

The sadness of what I was seeing, along with the agonizing pain my body felt, left me crying and crying. The Lord came over to me and got right up in my face and I thought it would be about me, I thought He would notice my pain at that moment, but He said, “Until your heart is torn and ripped like your flesh is now, you do not know My friends.” It was absolutely more then I could take in.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[She describes a callous non-feeling Jesus who did not care one bit about her suffering. I imagine it was more than she could take in. This Jesus telling her, Until your heart is torn and ripped like your flesh is now, you do not know My friends, one would take this to mean that one would have to have an experience like JM in order to know who Jesus friends’ are. The Word of God says this about friendship: You are My friends if you do what I command: John 15:14… But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend: Isaiah 41:8… And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God: James 2:23.]

I was right there watching children die, mothers taking their last breath, disease spreading, and young girls being sold, and He kept saying, “Until your heart is torn and ripped like your flesh is now, you do not know My friends. You do not know Me.”

Redeemed Hippie>>>[Even if this place was India, are we to believe that everyone who dies there is going to heaven? She is leading us to believe so.]

Then when I sunk into a heap of tears, to my surprise, He got right into my face, eye to eye, and said in a low whisper, “It is time to dance.” He said it like it was His secret weapon, the dance…

Redeemed Hippie>>>[For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds. 2 Corinthians 10:4… Wisdom is better than weapons of war… Ecclesiastes 9:18. If wisdom is better than weapons of war, would it not make sense that dancing as a weapon of war, is nowhere in the picture? If you and Jesus were in the midst of that kind of suffering, would not your heart be burdened to pray? But instead, this Jesus says it is time to dance. This Jesus is soulish, sensual, fleshly. This Jesus is from the pit of hell.]

He started doing this dance with His feet, like a stomping. Those perfect feet that revealed the very scars of death and life were dancing this rhythmic, tribal stomp–the feet of the Lord who stomps out injustice. It was the most powerful dance and stomp I have ever witnessed. To watch the Lord himself, with the scars of passion dance upon the injustice of His friends. He said it again, “Until your heart is torn and ripped in two, you do not know My friends. You do not know Me.”

Redeemd Hippie>>>[Tribal stomp? Tribal– like in God telling you to get more tattooes AFTER you come to him? Tribal–like in telling you it is ok to get piercings when the Word of God says no? Tribal–like in dancing to create a mind altaring experience? Dance upon the injustice?]

Then Jesus grabbed my hand, and we headed straight through the center of the earth and again, I felt the horrible pain of my skin and flesh ripping and tearing right off my bones and that thunderous sound as we were blasting right through the earth. Suddenly, we were standing in a doctor’s office, like a clinic. My first thought was of myself and how much pain I was in. I felt as if I had no skin on my bones, like it had all been ripped off. He said again, “I want you to meet My friends.”

Redeemed Hippie>>>[This truly sounds like something out of a horror movie. What follows, even more so.]

I looked around, and I saw a trash can filled with babies. I could see heads and hands and tiny feet. Babies filled trash can after trash can. Some were still alive and moving, their skin was burned, some of their heads were crushed, some were completely whole, their eyes wide open and starring. I felt as if I was in shock. The Lord looked right up into my eyes with His eyes and He said, “Until your heart is ripped and torn like your flesh, you do not know My friends. These are My friends.” I was standing there as another baby was thrown by his leg into the trash can, a whole baby. I could feel the very thoughts of the Lord.

“Oh the silent of the earth, the seemingly forgotten ones. YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN! YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN! YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN!”

The babies were silent in that room on earth, but they had a voice that has the ear of the Father, God Almighty!

Their screams never cease throughout the corridors of eternity. They are crying out, day and night and night and day , and they HAVE THE ATTENTION OF HEAVEN. THEY HAVE THE ATTENTION, THE EAR, OF GOD ALMIGHTY. I started screaming out, “YOU DO THIS NOT IN VAIN, LOU! YOU DO THIS NOT IN VAIN, LOU ENGLE! YOU DO THIS NOT IN VAIN, LOU!”

I could see through the Hall of eternity that Heaven knows the very name of Lou Engle. Lou knows the friends of the Lord.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[Lou Engle must be somebody very important in heaven. But no. God is a respector of no one– Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons. Acts 10:34]

I could hear the continual cry of the babies throughout the corridors of Heaven, the seemingly silent of the earth, the forgotten of the earth, but they have the ear of the Father, and they are day and night and night and day, crying out for justice on the strong of the earth, crying out for justice on the very ones that took their lives.
But…in eternity THEY HAVE A VOICE!!! Day and night and night and day…crying out for justice on the seemingly strong of the earth…and THEY have their FATHER’S EAR! And again, the Lord looked straight into my eyes and said, “Until your heart is ripped and torn like your flesh is now, you do not know my friends, you do not know Me.”

I stood there sobbing and sobbing, and then He got right in my face again, right up close to my eyes, and said in a low whisper, “It’s time to dance.” He started that “New Dance” with those perfect feet that tread the high places of the earth, now those feet were dancing and stomping, right in the middle of this abortion clinic.

It was so powerful. It was always at the time when I was the most broken and the most undone that He would say, “It is time to dance. It’s time to war, to dance is to war.” He would stomp, with this new rhythm, this stomp with His feet. It was not the two-step, it was the Judge stomping out injustice, with His very own feet! He said, “Just wait until the earth joins Me in this dance.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up. Daniel 3:7]

Few have joined Me, and I am extending the invitation, but you can only dance when your heart is the most torn and broken.”

Redeemed Hippie>>>[No where in scripture is this found. So this is a lie. It is setting up an illusion. One of only the most spiritual will be dancing as their hearts have been broken.]

Then He came up to me again and said,”I want you to meet some of My friends.” And right through the earth we went, yet again. I could barely stand. My heart was broken. My skin was torn. I looked down and it looked as if a bomb had exploded right next to me. We were walking down a very, very busy street. He was ahead of me and I was in so much pain, I wanted Him to walk slower, but it was not about me. He wanted me to feel the pain, because He wanted my heart to KNOW the pain, embrace it, and take it as my own.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[This Jesus is not a merciful Jesus. This Jesus did not care about her pain or her ripped and torn flesh. This is not the suffering that we re taught in the Bible. 1 Peter 5:7… casting all your care upon Him for He cares for you.]

He waited for me to walk right beside him. This place I knew was Israel. At different times I would see Him tip His head at someone, as if to say,”Hello” or “Shalom.” He did not speak, He only tipped His head. He would catch their eye, and then tip His head back, and I would look at the person He was tipping His head to, and I saw their eyes bulge. I looked inside of them and I could see a light go on. I could see Jesus, with just a glance, open the eyes of their heart, and they could literally SEE Him as Jesus, the Messiah. I could see on the inside of them, as we walked down this path in Jerusalem, that all of a sudden the eyes of their heart were opened, and a small flame started to burn on the inside of them.

Some of the people He tipped his head to I knew had great authority, heads in the Jewish community–rabbis. I could literally see in a glance the Lord opening up their eyes; I could see the Lord appearing. He was appearing to some of the top rabbis in the land, and just with a glance and a nod, a flame of revelation started to burn on the depths of the inside, in a second the eyes of their hearts were opened.

“For the LORD will rebuild Zion and appear in His glory” (Psalm 102:16).

Redeemed Hippie>>>[I have a real problem with everyone now days saying “Jesus is here” and “I saw Jesus” and “thousands are seeing Jesus.” The Word of God says He is sitting on the right hand of God interceding on our behalf. It also says when He returns EVERY eye shall see Him.]

We followed these Rabbis up to their rooms, as they went up into the upper rooms of their houses. I watched these Rabbis fall on their knees and cry out, “This Changes EVERYTHING. This changes EVERYTHING!” I saw the Lord go over and blow on that tiny ember of revelation on the inside, and little by little, it started to burn like an unquenchable fire. I could see this small flame of revelation become like “fire shut up in their bones.” I saw that this fire would continue to burn until the appointed day would come when these Rabbi’s could hold it in no longer and they would shout it from the top of the mountains, “Yeshua is Messiah…YESHUA IS MESSIAH!” I thought about how we pray for this in our little prayer meetings from Kansas City, that Jesus would appear in His Glory. He really, really is.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. Matthew 24:23-25]

I looked over, and this was the first time I saw the face of Jesus.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[She says this is the first time she sees his face. She contradicts herself here. Above she says their eyes meet ye to eye.]

He had tears running down His cheeks, and I could hear Him saying, “Oh Jerusalem, Oh Jerusalem.” I could feel in my heart the passion and the love that He had for Israel. And I could feel the hurt of a lover when no love is given in return. He looked at me, yet again, and said, “Until your heart is ripped and torn, just like your skin is now, you do not know My friends. You do not know Me.”

I could feel deep in my being the depths of love that He had for Israel–like Jacob loved Rachel, like Elkanah loved Hannah, yet His passion extended far beyond natural love. I was yet again crying and crying, and the salt of my tears stung the wounds of my flesh, yet I could not stop crying. Right when I thought I could take no more, and I had fallen to a crumpled heap on the floor, He said in a low whisper, “It is time to dance.”

All of a sudden, we were right in front of the Wailing Wall, and He started again, this stomping, this rhythm, this dance with those perfect feet, like none I have ever seen. It was always at the point where I felt the most brokenness and grief that He would say, “It is time to dance.” I could feel the presence of power, and I could feel the power of this dance, dancing upon injustice. Oh, what a sight to see when the Son of God and His perfect feet come spinning around and dancing on injustice! Jesus kept saying, “It’s time to dance. It’s time to dance.”

There is a new dance coming, that will simply come out of our worship and our hearts breaking for the poor of the earth, for the seemingly forgotten, for the ones the Lord calls His friends. Just when our hearts are the most broken, THAT is when it is time to dance. Oh, what a sight to see when the King of Kings, the Judge of the earth and His perfect feet that show the scars of passion, begin to dance and stomp out injustice. It is a literal dance. It is a literal stomp!

It is time to dance. I knew this in my dream as we were walking down the streets of Jerusalem, right up to the wall where He started His dance. I knew that He was revealing Himself to very key people in the Jewish community, very high rabbis in the Jewish community even in the middle of the dance. I saw their eyes bulge. I could look inside of them and see their hearts begin to pound. I could see the Lord put inside of them “a knowing” that He and He alone was the Messiah. The day is coming, in the timing of the Lord, when He will stir up the hearts of the top appointed rabbis, and they will explode on the inside and run to the highest places in Jerusalem, shouting to all Jerusalem, “Yeshua is the Messiah. Yeshua IS MESSIAH!”

Blessed Is He who comes in the Name of the Lord. Right now, they are hiding it and asking themselves if it really happenened. An appointed time has already been set, and in these days ahead, He is appearing and opening up the eyes of men’s hearts, and then He will come and set their very bones on fire. I could see these rabbis exploding with the word of the Lord, proclaiming His appearing. It is happening. It is set for an appointed time. It is happening today.

“But if I say, ‘I will not mention Him or speak any more in His name,’ His word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones” (Jeremiah 20:9).

Then yet again, He said, “Until your heart is torn and ripped in two, just like your flesh is, you do not know My friends.”

Redeemed Hippie>>>[Is it really so important to know his friends? The Word of God tells us: For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2.

Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 1 John 2:3.

I concur that Julie Meyers’ Jesus was a liar and a false one.]

It is time to dance!

Redeemed Hippie>>>[We are told that Satan comes as an angel of light. So now, I ask that you go back and read HER words one last time. When you do, instead of seeing Jesus, look at it in the light that she is speaking about Lucifer. Then decide if you really believe this is the Jesus you know.]

MorningStar Ministries: Tod Bentleys’ “Restoration”


Todd Bentley Begins Restoration Process
By Rick Joyner

Todd Bentley was used to spark the Lakeland Outpouring, which raised the faith level of much of the body of Christ. Testimonies of healings and miracles from it are now virtually all over the world.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[We have yet to see the proof of this. TB had the chance to show records he said he had. But he chose not to.]

When Todd’s marriage failed, he abruptly stopped all ministry and virtually disappeared for almost nine months. In the meantime, his divorce was finalized and he has recently remarried.

Redeemed hippie>>>[Nine months? How much do you want to bet that the great Tod Bentley will use the “nine months” as some kind of teaching aid or example in the days to come? Perhaps saying he gave birth to something brand new during those nine months? During those nine months he could have been seeking the Lord on behalf of his marriage and family life. He chose not to.]

Todd has taken full responsibility for the failure of his marriage.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[If he has, then how has he repented?]

He and Jessa also admit that their relationship was premature and should not have happened the way it did. Both are adamant that it was not the cause for the failure of his first marriage, nor did they begin their relationship until Todd was convinced that his marriage was over.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[Premature? What, they should have waited longer? They HAD to come out with it. God was bringing this false revivalist and those involved to the light. God began to expose them and lifting the skirts of their many whoredoms.]

They have both expressed that it was wrong and premature. They do not want to try and cover this up even though they know many will never accept them for it. Even so, they are married now and are resolved to make the most of their marriage, their lives, and to continue to serve the Lord in the best way that they can.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[Serving the Lord in seeing how many more people they can deceive the next go round.]

My position all along has been that I will do my best to comply with Galatians 6:1, “If a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted” (NKJV). To obey this Word, I have always felt that it did not matter what one had done, and that it was my responsibility to help them find the grace of God to return to the place from which they had fallen.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[These things are true. But when one is a blatant liar such as Tod Bentley and those who backed him up, practicing the occult, teaching the occult as the gospel, there is no room for compromise here. Rick joyner says, “… it was my responsibility to help them find the grace of God to return to the place from which they had fallen.” Let us hope not!  Let us hope he is NOT going to help restore TB BACK to the place he fell. Rather, expose the man for his lying occult abominations! God forbid, that you would take him back to it!]

I confess that with Todd, I am not just doing this as a duty. From the time I first met him nearly ten years ago, I knew that he had an extraordinary purpose and a gift of faith for the miraculous that would be desperately needed in these times.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[Rick Joyner had absolutely no discernment if this is what he thought of Tod Bentley. The church does not need Tod Bentley and his abominations. The church needs the truth and accountability.]

I consider helping any of God’s children an honor, and helping Todd is a privilege.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[Then speak the truth to him, Rick Joyner. But you too, have gone astray. You follow apostates, you become one.]

I also confess to some selfish ambition in wanting to do this. I had a dream two decades ago in which one of my children had fallen into a sewage ditch and could not get up. My child was being scorned and no one would help him. A man came along who helped my child get up and then cleaned up. In that dream, I felt as if I would give everything that I owned to this man who helped my child. Then I heard the voice of the Lord say, “Jim Bakker is My child. Will you help him?” Since that time, I have been devoted to helping any of God’s children that I could who have committed any trespass, because I knew there were few other things that would bring the Father’s favor. I consider this willingness to at least try to help others this way a major reason for the extraordinary favor that our ministry, my family, and I have received. I love Todd and am glad to help him, but I also know by doing this, I will be doing something that means a great deal to our Father.

Redeemed hippie>>>[Then will you speak the truth to him? Will you tell him the things he practiced and taught were abomnible heresies?]

When we release someone to minister in the body of Christ, we are releasing him or her to minister to God’s own children, and I personally do not do that with anyone who I would not allow to minister to my own family. For all that was done through Todd, and especially at Lakeland, which touched and helped countless thousands, many were also left confused and hurt by the way it ended.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[That word release. These people have no unction, power or authority to release anyone. All they have released were abomnible heretical teachings through this revival. No one came forth and said it was wrong. No one came forth and challenged it. Now, we are just suppose to trust them in doing what is right? I don’t think so. As far as the revival touching thousands, that still is yet to be seen. There is no proof of any great healings. But there is great proof of occult happenings and lies. If anything, all it did was make people hungry for experiences, desiring their emotions to be touched, fed by power hungry people who preyed on the weakness, hopelessness  and ignorance of their followers.]

I think Todd is even more sensitive to this than I am. Although in some ways he greatly misses being in ministry and praying for people, he wants to be sure that when he comes back that his life and his ministry are on the most solid ground possible so that he does not cause these kinds of problems again.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[What problems? The kind where you fake being a family man, and then end of having an affair and divorcing your sick wife for a younger chick? I dare say, it wouldn’t happen again. TB already has what he wants. He has the whole nine yards; the minstry, the backing of others, the money, the new woman. What more could his flesh want?]

Jack Deere and Bill Johnson have agreed to be a part of Todd’s restoration process. I asked them to be a part because I know they will probably see things I don’t,

Redeemed hippie>>>[I don’t know anything about Jack Deere or Bill Johnson. But why would I believe that anyone who Rick Joyner gives any credibility to, has somehow all of a sudden being used to bring the full truth to what TB is all about?  Where were they a year ago when all this apostacy began? Why didn’t they speak out then, if they are so intuned to restoring anyone? Joyner says, “I asked them to be a part because I know they will probably see things I don’t.” Let us hope so!]

…but also because both Todd and I trust them and know they would not sign off on something they did not really believe in. However, both of them are going to be involved in this at a distance, and therefore, I will be the main person responsible.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[They are going to be involved at a distance? Joyner is the main person responsible? Such self-exaltation of self-importance here. There is nothing being said about the Lord holding anyone accountable. It is already obvious these people could not monitor a thing, let alone Tod Bentley. People are to be held accountable to a holy God. Not to those within the same heretical movement.]

Being a believer in body ministry, I expect our whole leadership team, and to some degree, our whole local church, to be involved in helping Todd and Jessa. Our staff and all from the church that I have discussed this with are very happy about them being here and want to help them in any way that they can.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[What about Shonna and the children? Where are they in all of this? Is anyone reaching out to them or is it just about TB and his new chick? Tod Bentley is a habitual liar, a charlaton and an apostate. And somehow he manages to get all the attention, praise and adoration while his wife and children are paying some kind of price for his behavior. Amazing that the church would put more importance on a heretic than they would his family.]

In future Bulletins, we will go into more detail about what we’re doing and why, as well as what we think was a cause of some of the failures Todd experienced. We will only do this for the sake of helping others avoid the same traps.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[The only whay this whole mess could help anyone is if they came out and said the truth; Tod Bentley was a false teacher and a fake.]

We know that trust has to be earned and that Todd will have to earn the trust of the body of Christ for future ministry, which will not be easy, nor should it be. Todd, more than most, does not want to jump back into ministry prematurely, even as much as he misses it in some ways.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[The fastest and greatest way he could earn that trust is to come right out and tell how he has been a fake and a mocker from the very beginning. Anything short of that is not true repentence.]

I for one have been very encouraged by the expressions of grace and genuine concern so many have expressed toward Todd in this situation. It gives me great hope. As we have been constantly reminded, the Lord had great patience with sinners, but He had none for the self-righteous.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[Joyners’ way of saying if you disagree with them in any way and don’t jump on board with their program, then you are self-righteous. Never mind the actions of TB. You MUST submit to them by trusting they are doing everything right. I can not and will not. Only a few came out and challenged TB and those who backed him. Those of us who did were called religious cows– that they wanted to kill,– rebellious, unteachable, Jezabelles, etc.]

We’re all here because He had mercy on us, and we know we still need it. However, we also know that true repentance and restoration can only come if we refuse to compromise the clear biblical standards for morality and integrity.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[Rick and those who follow him know nothing about no compromise. Compromise was written all over TB and his ministry from the very start. They accepted anything and everything as the truth, all in the name of wanting revival.]

Todd wanted to personally say the following:

It has been a long while since I have spoken publicly and openly. I am sorry for the hurt and confusion that my decisions have caused the body of Christ. It has been a true season of brokenness, hiddenness, and a long process of grieving.

Redeemd Hippie>>>[Excuse me in if am wrong, but how is one broken and yet able to get by with adultry and remarriage within a matter of months? How is TB broken and what is he broken over? The fact that he got caught or the fact that he has finally realized what a heretic he was? I really really want to know TB.]   

As many of you now know, my previous marriage has endured years of unresolved conflicts. I apologize that it has ended in divorce, and I take full responsibility for my part for the ending of the marriage. I realize that my silence and decisions have caused many of you to feel hurt, confused, and offended. The reason for the silence was for my need of healing, creating a restoration process under a team of qualified leaders, much needed rest after the Lakeland Outpouring, repentance, and the divorce process.

I have now relocated to Fort Mill, South Carolina and have entered into my restoration and healing process under Rick Joyner, Jack Deere, and Bill Johnson. I am confident of this one thing—that God is faithful to His promise and my hope is to be fully restored, strengthened, healed, and to learn from all the mistakes I have made along the way.
    Thank you friends and partners for your continued prayers, encouragement, and love. I am committed to the work of the Holy Spirit and confident that the good men around me will help me be restored first as a man, as a husband, and ultimately to fulfill God’s call on my life.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[I do hope you have repented TB. I do hope you are able to stand in front of the thousands you deceived and let them know what a fake you were. Not just in your marriage, but in the things you taught. The occult, the witchcraft, the manipulations, lies you told, the embellishments, the setting up of an image of Jesus that was a lie. All of it. THEN I will believe you have been restored unto the truth.]

Those of you who were touched by the Lakeland Outpouring do not lose your encouragement. What happened there was from God, and Todd is a true servant of God.

Redeemed hippie>>>[He STILL will not call it what it was; an apostate heretical movement! Why oh why, should any of us believe a word he says? This angers me. How stupid do they think we are? It is the very same spirit that is at work in the political arena and they do not see it?! They have learned NOTHING. They have came to the light on NOTHING.]

He has made some mistakes, and he is trying to get his life back in order, and you can be confident that he will. Throughout the Bible, many of the greatest heroes in it also made some of the worst mistakes. King David, possibly the greatest hero in the Bible after Jesus, made one of the most horrible mistakes, not only committing adultery, but murdering the husband of the woman he committed it with. God knew that was going to happen with David when He called him, and He loved David before, during, and afterward.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[To even compare TB with King David is a stretch of the imagination. TB is no where anything like king David. King David REPENTED. We still have yet to see if TB is going to repent for his abominations.]

One of the remarkable events in the Bible is that the Lord then used Bathsheba to bring forth the heir to the throne, Solomon, and she is part of the genealogy of Jesus. It still stretches me, but we need stretching in the grace of God. At the same time, we must balance it with how God hates divorce, and it is one of the scourges of our times that is tragically hurting many, many people. Marriage is under such an assault now because it is so important. However, legalism will not overcome lawlessness.

Redeemed Hippie>>>[Joyners’ way of saying if anyone demands too much accountability or too much change, then we are legalistic.]

This situation and similar ones that almost every church and family are now being faced with is one that we need answers for. We cannot run from Him, but must run to Him with our need.

Many of Todd’s friends and former partners have asked if and how they might help to rebuild and establish Fresh Fire USA, which has recently relocated from Abbotsford, BC Canada and is now based at Heritage International Ministries in Fort Mill, SC. Donations can now be made to Fresh Fire USA at the following address:

Fresh Fire USA
C/O MorningStar  Fellowship Church

Fort Mill, SC 29715

Make checks out to Fresh Fire USA, or if you would like to donate by credit card to help in rebuilding Fresh Fire USA, call 1-800-542-0278

Redeemed Hippie>>>[Ahh, there it is. Don’t forget to send a check to them so they can continue to prop up their little idol.

For anyone who may believe I judge TB harshly. I judge his teachings and his actions as being occultic. Just because someone can name the name of Jesus does not mean they follow the real Jesus. The whole world is under the sway of the wicked one. Christians are not exempt from being deceived. An image of Jesus was set up during this movement that was heretical. Few be that call it so. I will have no reason to believe Tod Bentley is a true christian until he comes out and confesses his occult practices just like I had to do back in 1976.]

Corrie Ten Boom on the Rapture of the Church

Leave a comment

“The world is deathly ill.  It is dying.  The Great Physician has already signed the death certificate.  Yet there is still a great work for Christians to do.  They are to be streams of living water, channels of mercy to those who are still in the world.  It is possible for them to do this because they are overcomers.

Christians are ambassadors for Christ.  They are representatives from Heaven to this dying world.  And because of our presence here, things will change.

My sister, Betsy, and I were in the Nazi concentration camp at Ravensbruck because we committed the crime of loving Jews.  Seven hundred of us from Holland, France, Russia, Poland and Belgium were herded into a room built for two hundred.  As far as I knew, Betsy and I were the only two representatives of Heaven in that room.

We may have been the Lord’s only representatives in that place of hatred, yet because of our presence there, things changed.  Jesus said, “In the world you shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”  We too, are to be overcomers – bringing the light of Jesus into a world filled with darkness and hate.

Sometimes I get frightened as I read the Bible, and as I look in this world and see all of the tribulation and persecution promised by the Bible coming true.  Now I can tell you, though, if you too are afraid, that I have just read the last pages.  I can now come to shouting “Hallelujah! Hallelujah!” for I have found where it is written that Jesus said,

“He that overcometh shall inherit all things:
and I will be His God,
and he shall be My son.”

This is the future and hope of this world. Not that the world will survive – but that we shall be overcomers in the midst of a dying world.

Betsy and I, in the concentration camp, prayed that God would heal Betsy who was so weak and sick.
“Yes, the Lord will heal me,”, Betsy said with confidence.
She died the next day and I could not understand it. They laid her thin body on the concrete floor along with all the other corpses of the women who died that day.

It was hard for me to understand, to believe that God had a purpose for all that.  Yet because of Betsy’s death, today I am traveling all over the world telling people about Jesus.

There are some among us teaching there will be no tribulation, that the Christians will be able to escape all this. These are the false teachers that Jesus was warning us to expect in the latter days.  Most of them have little knowledge of what is already going on across the world. I have been in countries where the saints are already suffering terrible persecution.

In China, the Christians were told, “Don’t worry, before the tribulation comes you will be translated – raptured.” Then came a terrible persecution.  Millions of Christians were tortured to death. Later I heard a Bishop from China say, sadly, Since I have already gone through prison for Jesus’ sake, and since I met the Bishop in China, now every time I read a good Bible text I think, “Hey, I can use that in the time of tribulation.”  Then I write it down and learn it by heart.

When I was in the concentration camp, a camp where only twenty percent of the women came out alive, we tried to cheer each other up by saying, “Nothing could be any worse than today.” But we would find the next day was even worse.  During this time a Bible verse that I had committed to memory gave me great hope and joy.

“If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye;
for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you;
on their part evil is spoken of,
but on your part He is glorified.”

(I Peter 3:14)

I found myself saying, “Hallelujah!
Because I am suffering, Jesus is glorified!”

In America, the churches sing, “Let the congregation escape tribulation”, but in China and Africa the tribulation has already arrived. This last year alone more than two hundred thousand Christians were martyred in Africa. Now things like that never get into the newspapers because they cause bad political relations. But I know. I have been there. We need to think about that when we sit down in our nice houses with our nice clothes to eat our steak dinners. Many, many members of the Body of Christ are being tortured to death at this very moment, yet we continue right on as though we are all going to escape the tribulation.

Several years ago I was in Africa in a nation where a new government had come into power. The first night I was there some of the Christians were commanded to come to the police station to register. When they arrived they were arrested and that same night they were executed. The next day the same thing happened with other Christians. The third day it was the same. All the Christians in the district were being systematically murdered.

The fourth day  I was to speak in a little church. The people came, but they were filled with fear and tension. All during the service they were looking at each other, their eyes asking, “Will this one I am sitting beside be the next one killed? Will I be the next one?”

The room was hot and stuffy with insects that came through the screenless windows and swirled around the naked bulbs over the bare wooden benches. I told them a story out of my childhood.

“When I was a little girl, ” I said, “I went to my father and said,
“Daddy, I am afraid that I will never be strong enough to be a martyr for Jesus Christ.”
“Tell me,” said Father,
“When you take a train trip to Amsterdam,
when do I give you the money for the ticket?
Three weeks before?”

“No, Daddy, you give me the money for the ticket just before we get on the train.”

“That is right,” my father said, “and so it is with God’s strength.
Our Father in Heaven knows when you will need the strength to be a martyr for Jesus Christ.
He will supply all you need – just in time…”

My African friends were nodding and smiling.
Suddenly a spirit of joy descended upon that church and the people began singing,

” In the sweet, by and by,
we shall meet on that beautiful shore.”

Later that week, half the congregation of that church was executed.
I heard later that the other half was killed some months ago.

But I must tell you something. I was so happy that the Lord used me to encourage these people, for unlike many of their leaders, I had the word of God. I had been to the Bible and discovered that Jesus said He had not only overcome the world, but to all those who remained faithful to the end, He would give a crown of life.

How can we get ready for the persecution?

First we need to feed on the Word of God, digest it, make it a part of our being. This will mean disciplined Bible study each day as we not only memorize long passages of scripture, but put the principles to work in our lives.

Next we need to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Not just the Jesus of yesterday, the Jesus of History,
but the life-changing Jesus of today who is still alive
and sitting at the right hand of God.

We must be filled with the Holy Spirit. This is no optional command of the Bible, it is absolutely necessary. Those earthly disciples could never have stood up under the persecution of the Jews and Romans had they not waited for Pentecost. Each of us needs our own personal Pentecost, the baptism of the Holy Spirit. We will never be able to stand in the tribulation without it.

In the coming persecution we must be ready to help each other and encourage each other.
But we must not wait until the tribulation comes before starting.
The fruit of the Spirit should be the dominant force of every Christian’s life.

Many are fearful of the coming tribulation, they want to run. I, too, am a little bit afraid when I think that after all my eighty years, including the horrible Nazi concentration camp, that I might have to go through the tribulation also.
But then I read the Bible and I am glad.

When I am weak, then I shall be strong, the Bible says. Betsy and I were prisoners for the Lord, we were so weak, but we got power because the Holy Spirit was on us. That mighty inner strengthening of the Holy Spirit helped us through. No, you will not be strong in yourself when the tribulation comes. Rather, you will be strong in the power of Him who will not forsake you. For seventy-six years I have known the Lord Jesus and not once has He ever left me, or let me down.

“Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him”, (Job 13:15)

for I know that to all who overcome,
He shall give the crown of life.

– Corrie Ten Boom – 1974

“We have failed.
We should have made the people strong for persecution,
rather than telling them Jesus would come first.
Tell the people how to be strong in times of persecution,
how to stand when the tribulation comes,
– to stand and not faint.”

I feel I have a divine mandate to go and tell the people of this world that it is possible to be strong in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are in training for the tribulation, but more than sixty percent of the Body of Christ across the world has already entered into the tribulation. There is no way to escape it.
We are next.

Another Idol Bites the Dust

Leave a comment

Over the past few decades, the church has had many idols she has looked up to. Idols she gave her money and support to in hopes of getting something back from God. Anything and everything from healing, financial wealth to even just a few hours of hyped up activity of feel-good-revival. Never mind the lies, the distortions, the blatant fraud–just as long as she could get from her genie god all she could get without Godly remorse and repentence.

She has heaped up teachers in the last days; teachers who care only for money and filthy lucre, men and women who fleece the flock with their lies and yet, there are those within the church who have loved it so. They have been known to sit in the audience with moronic excited looks when a false prophet exclaimed, “Jesus is coming in the flesh on this stage.” They have reveled in visits from angels. They have listened to every lie come forth as if it were an oracle of God.

They have heaped up teachers in the last days; men and women who have lived abundantly off the finances of their followers promising health and wealth to all who give to them.

It doesn’t matter how they get their healing.  They allow themselves to be slapped and even kicked by their false teachers and it does not matter to them.  They have allowed themselves to be abused by devils and they call it God. Bringing reproach to a holy and merciful God when they do so.

Then when their false teachers/prophets show themselves to be false, they still will go back for more. They forget the Lord their God and follow a Jesus the apostates create in their image.

Tod Bently, a phony that some within the church wanted so much to believe in, so much wanted to follow, so much gave their money and time to–has remarried. All along while he gave prophesy after prophesy on how God was healing marriages, he was having an affair all along. Now he is remarried.

He lied to the people in more than one way. He not only lied about the angels and other occult happenings, but he lied in presenting himself as a family man.  He not only created a Jesus in his image, but he created an image of himself for the masses to follow.

Oh Bride of Christ, who will you follow? The real Jesus or one who is being set up by false workers of iniquity?

David Wilkerson: Many will have their faith shaken

Leave a comment

Yesterday I posted a letter that David Wilkerson sent out. Today I have a must see video of David Wilkerson who has came out and warned us of the terrors to come. He got top billing yesterday on Worldnet Daily. If you do not listen to anything else today, please, please listen to this man. He is warning of what is to come upon this earth. We all will be shaken to the core. We MUST know Jesus if we are to stand in the days to come. Lord come quickly!
