WARNING: Truth Ahead. View at your own risk. You are entering a season of troubling information that will be highly uncomfortable. Proceed with caution…
At a time when spiritual warfare is out in the open and demonic influence is championed in the headlines, we are being challenged in discerning what’s true. Many conspiracy theories of past years are now being proven and validated, and there are many more yet to be revealed. Every sphere of our culture is being shaken and subjected to a thorough vetting and cleansing. The Lord is going deep into the root systems of what we have thought was “normal” to show us a very cracked and unhealthy foundation. It’s like living in a beautiful house for years and then finding out there’s a mold problem. It’s been growing for decades and has now contaminated the entire structure. It’s gone unnoticed and untreated for so long, only a major overhaul can eradicate it.
The spiritual mold we’re dealing with throughout the nations has grown through lies, deception, demonic agendas, and godless leaders who have been toying with humanity for personal gain. The controversial issues we’re dealing with go far beyond mere financial misdealing’s or inappropriate relationships. The secrets being exposed are dark, wicked practices that come from hell itself. Even as we are wrapping our minds around the level of corruption in high places, we are just beginning to understand the level of witchcraft involved. And as exposures continue to increase, arrests are made, and even well-known church leaders are convicted, our greatest challenge will be in facing the reality about our true condition.
WHERE IS THE TRUTH COMING FROM?
Because the Church has not been willing to engage in some areas of our culture in years past, there are few Christian witnesses to champion truth. The fact is, many of the whistleblowers and truth-tellers coming out of Hollywood, corporate America, big pharma, and media, are nonbelievers. Though many may be God-fearing with a core value of right and wrong, others have no religious background or doctrinal grid. They simply know that what’s happening is evil. I have a good friend in Christian media who recently told me that atheists are regularly calling him saying how they now believe in demons. They even use the word “demonic” when they see the horrors being unleashed on the young and innocent. Truly, the world is waking up. The question is – will the Church?
In a recent interview with Steve Schultz on Elijah Streams, I shared a warning from the Lord. It was for the Church to prepare for what’s ahead. We need to start talking about the dark side of things. We need to talk about our need for deliverance and the realities of demonic infiltration in our lives. No, we should never be more focused on hell than on heaven or “look for a demon under every bush.” And yet, it’s that very caution that has kept us from equipping the saints to rightly discern between good and evil. We’re now finding that there are, indeed, demons hidden behind many BUSHES (pun intended).
The fact is, we do not have to go looking for demons. They simply get exposed as the light grows stronger. We should take heart that this is what is taking place. Wicked agendas are being exposed precisely because people have been praying. It may appear as if the enemy has the upper hand, but it is all an illusion. During these dark times, God’s presence is spotlighting the demonic strongholds so that we know where they are and can take them out. The intercession of the saints from years past are now being manifest in this global time of deliverance.
CHEW THE MEAT AND THROW OUT THE BONES
If we’re going to become champions of truth, we need to do a better job of gleaning information. A lot of the facts we need to know about child sacrifice, satanic ritual abuse, and human trafficking are not going to come from fellow churchgoers. The real-life testimonies and facts of these cases are not going to be shared from pulpits. Many of the harsh realities concerning what has been happening in secret government operations, satanic cabals, and underground military bases are coming from non-believing, controversial voices in social media who make many religious folks uncomfortable.
As much as we would love to hear and share things that only come from upstanding citizens with a spotless record who only associate with those we agree with – it’s just not realistic. We are not going to be handed truth on a silver platter with everything neatly tied up in a bow. This is a messy operation. Really messy. We need to be prepared for some hard truths that are going to come from voices, platforms, and channels far from the mainstream. Even so, will we recognize truth when it comes in different packaging? Will we be ready to acknowledge the truths that have been hidden from years past?
I am. I hope you are, as well.
I will give you the treasures of darkness and the hoards in secret places, that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who call you by your name. (Isaiah 45:3 ESV)
In my latest video below I detail what it means to be a “feeler” or one who operates in the discerning of spirits. I also reveal some hidden insights from Scripture that show how territorial spirits and principalities impact us on the ground, and how we can counter their traps. Watch and share!
