Is the World Getting Better or is Knowledge Increasing ?

I get tired of hearing how “the world is getting better” and therefore the kingdom of God is advancing.

What an empty cry.

In reality – it is the scoffer’s cry.

What preacher – who uses the Bible as his source- would ever base the advancement of the kingdom upon anything other than the state of the soul of man and the physical return of Jesus Christ ?

Only a scoffer trying to cast shadows on the return of the Lord in judgement upon the kingdoms of this earth.

Only a scoffer trying to negate the clear commands to watch, to be awake, and be prepared for His return.

Only a scoffer seduced by pride attempting to negate the call for glory through suffering, and the command to separate and sanctify ourselves from this world and its forces.

Has the world gotten better ? Yes – in many ways.

In fact, the prophet Daniel explained what is happening today in Daniel 12:1-4

“ And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame andeverlasting contempt.
3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”

Before the time of the resurrection – knowledge will increase.

That is happening today – as never before.

Hospitals are better today than in 1895.
Communication is better today than in 1925. Or 1965.
Transportation has improved since the horse and buggy.
Knowledge has increased.

Has the heart of man improved ?
Lawlessness is still lawlessness.
The mystery of iniquity is still at work.

Has Christianity grown ? No. The world is approximately 33% Christian like it was in 1910.
The population has grown…but the percentage of “Christians” in the world is still about the same.
Different groups are coming to Christ in greater measure. ..yes. But at the same time- once “Christian” populations/cities/countries are leaving “Christianity”.
Also – the message has changed. There are many today who claim to be “Christian” but have never encountered the Christ of the cross.
I believe that in the 33% of the world that claims to be “Christian” … only 1/3rd of them are born from above. Just my opinion.

Ok. I can hear the cries of faithless, hopeless, pessimist, and whatever.
I can feel the marginalization.
He’s an escapist. A futurist. A Christian with no vision. Blah…blah.
Here is the reality.

Saying “the world is getting better” therefore the kingdom of God is advancing is like…

telling a drowning man not to worry because (due to today’s advanced water filtration) his lungs are being filled with the purest water known to man. The water today just keeps getting better.

telling a death row inmate that his last meal is low carb, low fat, and low calorie. He wont gain a pound. Life in prison just gets better and better.

because over $425,000,000 is spent on Bibles yearly – the love of money is no longer the root of all evil. Covetousness just keeps getting better and better.
This scoffer’s cry is simply …

A subjective opinion, with no eternal significance, based upon selective statistics for the purpose of “legitimizing” a religious, eschatological, philosophy.

It is eschatological clickbait.
Here is the real truth.

2 Peter 3

1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they werefrom the beginning of the creation.
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
8 ¶ But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10 ¶ But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of personsought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
14 ¶ Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
17 ¶ Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Bill Johnson’s Jesus

Many are awakening to the occult and new age influence emanating from Bethel Church in Redding California.

Neo-Gnosticism – experiences and knowledge with the pursuit of third heaven encounters were Jesus’ path to “Christhood” and should be ours…

along with –

syncretism – the merging of other religions (whether pagan, new age or simply elements of the world) with Christianity…


doctrines of demons – the diminishment of the nature of Jesus Christ, His mission, or His words….


another Jesus.

Here are some quotes from two books by Bill Johnson



“Jesus modeled what life could be like when a person neither grieves nor quenches the Holy Spirit. It is for this reason that we see such a great measure of the presence of God in the person of Jesus. John said of Jesus, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him.” (John 1:32) Certainly this is not talking about the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit that was already in Jesus’s life. This was the inauguration of Jesus’ ministry, and the Holy Spirit came to rest upon Him as a mantle of power and authority for that specific purpose. But the fact that the Holy Spirit came to rest on Him is evidence of Jesus’ faithfulness to be perfectly trustworthy with the presence of God. The same principle is true for us.”

Face to Face with God pp.21,22


” As previously stated, Jesus set aside His divinity, choosing instead to live as a man completely dependent on God. In doing so, He not only modeled a supernatural lifestyle, but He also illustrated that the ultimate quest is for the face of God. His lifestyle of both fasting and praying on the mountain throughout the night – a lifestyle He no doubt had established long before the Spirit descended upon Him – demonstrated his unquestionable priority to seek God’s face.

To say that Jesus came both to manifest the face of God and illustrate the quest for his face may sound a little confusing, but both are true. Remember, Jesus modeled for us what it looked like to grow in favor with God as well as with man. The heavenly Father responded to His Son by giving an open heaven, which was followed by words of affirmation, saying, “This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” It was in this encounter that the Father released the Holy Spirit upon His Son, enabling Him to manifest His face to the world.

The Father, by the Holy Spirit, directed all that Jesus said and did. It was the intimacy that Jesus had with His heavenly Father that became the foundation for all the signs, wonders, and miracles performed in His three and a half years of earthly ministry.

As we saw in the last chapter, Ezekiel made the prophetic declaration, “I will not hide My face from them any longer, for I will have poured out my Spirit on them” (Ezekiel 39:29) The face of God is revealed in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The outpouring of the Spirit also needed to happen to Jesus for Him to be fully qualified. This was His quest. Receiving the anointing qualified Him to be called the Christ, which means “anointed one”. Without the experience there could be no title.”

Jesus manifested the face of God to mankind. But it was only when He was taken away that He could release His experience to become their experience. And so He sent the Holy Spirit to come upon them. This meant that they could have their own encounter with God’s face in a way that was not available through Jesus Himself. In other words, Jesus’ experience was to become the normal experience of all who follow. This encounter brings us into the ultimate transformation, that we might become the ultimate transformers.”

Face to Face with God pp.108-110

“Jesus had no supernatural capabilities in Himself. Everything He did, He did as a man, completely dependant on the Holy Spirit. He emphasized this point by saying, “The Son can do nothing of Himself.’

While He is 100 percent God, He chose to live with the same limitations and restriction that man would face once he was redeemed. He made that point over and over again. If He performed miracles as God, I am still impressed, but not compelled to follow. His example would be admirable, but unattainable. Yet it is obvious that He intended His disciples to do all that He did and more. Realizing that He did all the miracles as a man, I am responsible to follow the example He established, and pursue the spiritual realms He said were available to me. By doing it this way He became a model for all who would become His disciples, thus embracing the invitation to invade the impossible in His name. He performed miracles, signs, and wonders as a man in right relationship to God…not as God. Recapturing this simple truth changes everything…and makes possible a full restoration of the ministry of Jesus Christ in His Church.”

One of the tragedies we experience in this is that great truths have been reduced to doctrine, and are avoided as experiences. Near the top of the list is the wonderful declaration that we are seated “in heavenly places in Christ.” It has come to be a comforting promise for those who have problems, instead of a revelation of something that is available in Christ to all who believe. It is to be a third heaven experience that gives us a perspective on reality that no doctrine can accomplish in itself. This is very instrumental in learning to see things from God’s perspective. Out of that place of intimacy we are uniquely positioned for purpose. And all who taste of this reality begin living from Heaven toward earth.

Jesus showed us what one person could do who has the spirit without measure.”

Shifting Shadows of Supernatural Power pp.185-187

Brian Simmons and The Passion Translation Deception

The Passion Translation (paraphrase) and the ministry of Brian Simmons is a fine example of what is wrong with a portion of the charismatic church.  Leaders and teachers within the “ movement” that embrace preterism and Kingdom Now/Dominionism or Seven Mountain Mandate (or whatever branch of NAR beliefs are popular at this moment) see themselves as doing the work of the Holy Spirit. There is a level of manipulation and control at work- in this movement- that is scary.  Please read the following comments concerning the Passion Translation (paraphrase) and tell me if you think the Holy Spirit needs help in illuminating His own Word.  The first manipulation is calling this work a translation and advertising it as excellent for studying God’s Word. 

“The Passion Translation is an excellent translation you can use as your primary text to seriously study God’s Word because it combines the best aspects of what is called formal and functional equivalence Bibles.

Why another Bible translation? The reason is simple: God wants His message of love to be received in every culture, every community, and every language. God refuses to meet us only in an intellectual way. God also wants to meet us heart level, so we must let the words go heart deep—which is what we’re trying to do with this project. To bring words that go right through the human soul, past the defenses of our mind, and go right into our spirit. There is a language of the heart that must express the passion of this love-theology.”

This version taps into the love language of God, letting the words of Scripture go through the human soul, past the defenses of our mind, and into our spirit.”



All quotes were taken from The Passion Translation website.


Let’s stop accepting control and manipulation in the name of God.  Also…let’s stop ignoring this stuff.  A little leaven? This whole movement is becoming a mass of spreading yeast.


Here are some examples of the manipulation involved in this translation.


“Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.”  1 Corinthians 15:34 (NKJV)


“Come back to your right senses and awaken to what is right. Repent from your sinful ways. For some have no knowledge of God’s wonderful love.  You should be ashamed that you make me write this way to you! “ 1 Corinthians 15:34 (Passion Translation)


“Brethren, 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.” Galatians 6:1 (NKJV)


“My beloved friends, if you see a believer who is overtaken with a fault and has fallen from the place of victory, may the one who overflows with the Spirit seek to restore him to fellowship with the Anointed One. Win him over with gentle words, which will open his heart to you and will keep you from exalting yourself over him.” Galatians 6:1 (Passion Translation)


But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom[a] the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation. Galatians 6:14,15 (NKJV)


“My only boast is in the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus, our Messiah. In him I have been crucified to this natural realm; and the natural realm is dead to me and no longer dominates my life. Circumcision doesn’t mean a thing to me. The only thing that really matters is living by the transforming power of this wonderful new creation life.” Galatians 6:14,15 (Passion Translation)


Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus…” Philippians 2:5 (NKJV)


“And consider the example that Jesus, the Anointed One, has set before us. Let his mindset become your motivation.” Philippians 2:5 (Passion Translation)


“For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.” Colossians 1:9 (NKJV)


“Since we first heard about you, we’ve kept you always in our prayers that you would be filled to overflowing with the revelation of God’s pleasure over your lives. This will make you reservoirs of all wisdom and spiritual understanding.” Colossians 1:9  (Passion Translation)


“And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight—  if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.” Colossians 1:21-23 (NKJV)


“Even though you were once distant from him, living in the shadows of your evil thoughts and actions, he reconnected you back to himself. He released his supernatural peace to you through the sacrifice of his own body as the sin-payment on your behalf so that you would dwell in his presence. And now there is nothing between you and Father God, for he sees you as holy, flawless, and restored!  Continue to advance in faith, assured of a firm foundation to grow upon. Never be shaken from the hope of the gospel you have believed in. And this is the glorious news I preach all over the world.” Colossians 1:21-23 (Passion Translation)


”To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:27 (NKJV)


“Living within you is the Christ who floods you with the expectation of glory! This mystery of Christ, embedded within us, becomes a heavenly treasure chest of hope filled with the riches of glory for his people, and God wants everyone to know it!” Colossians 1:27 (Passion Translation)


“Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.” Colossians 2:8 (NKJV)


“Beware that no one distracts you or intimidates you in their attempt to lead you away from Christ’s fullness by pretending to be full of wisdom when they’re filled with endless arguments of human logic. For they operate with humanistic and clouded judgments based on the mindset of this world system, and not the anointed truths of the Anointed One. “ Colossians  2:8 (Passion Translation)


“And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses.” Colossians 2:13 (NKJV)


“This “realm of death” describes our former state, for we were held in sin’s grasp.  But now, we’ve been resurrected out of that “realm of death” never to return, for we are forever alive and forgiven of all our sins!” Colossians 2:13 (Passion Translation)



Oh…there is so much more.  Beware deception…even when it is embraced and applauded and is released by a seemingly sweet man.  It is still deception and dangerous. 

Jonathan Welton: A Preterist and His Supporters

According to Apostle Dr. Jonathan Welton…
The first resurrection occurred in the first century.
The marriage supper of the Lamb has already happened.
We are in the new heavens and the new earth.
We are not to look forward to the coming of Jesus Christ.
Please read some examples of what he is teaching after the following…
Here is a list of the friends and supporters of Jonathan Welton.  I have listed the names of those who have written blurbs or forwards or recommendations for his books.  I have also listed those that have participated in conferences with him.
Beware of who your leaders are allowing in to your church.  Question the pastors and prophets who would embrace a teacher who denies the first resurrection.
This is not a game.
 This is heresy from an accepted teacher in the charismatic movement.

Here are some quotes from The Art of Revelation by Apostle Dr. Jonathan Welton…
I used to believe the marriage supper of the Lamb was a far distant future event, but our only picture of the timing is in Revelation 19: 7, “Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.” According to this verse, the marriage happened right after Heaven rejoiced over the AD 70 destruction of Jerusalem. It happened right before the beast, the false prophet, and those who took the mark of the beast were all judged in Revelation 19: 11– 21.
When this happened, the Christian reality changed for the better. On the other side of AD 70, we are not looking forward to Christ’s coming and the end of the age. We get to live in the current reality of His promises and the fullness of the new covenant.
Welton, Jonathan . The Art of Revelation (Kindle Locations 1687-1689). BookBaby. Kindle Edition.
We are now the Bride of Christ. We are not waiting for the marriage supper of the Lamb. We are already married to Him.
Welton, Jonathan . The Art of Revelation (Kindle Locations 1689-1690). BookBaby. Kindle

Now that we understand the phrase heaven and earth, we can see that the new heaven and new earth refer to new covenant replacements for the old covenant Temple. Thus, the new heaven and new earth are not a future end-of-the-world reality, but they are a present part of our new covenant experience.

Welton, Jonathan . The Art of Revelation (Kindle Location 1922). BookBaby. Kindle Edition.
In chapter 6, we find these martyrs under the throne crying out for justice, but in chapter 20, the same martyrs are given thrones of their own to reign upon! We know this because of the next verse, which says, “( The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection” (Rev. 20: 5). This phrase, “The rest of the dead,” makes it clear that this group of people is a select number from among the dead…The ones in question, “The rest of the dead,” were those who died in the AD 70 destruction, the non-believing Jews.
The first century martyrs were given thrones to reign upon in the Kingdom; this occurred in Revelation 11, when Jesus was declared the King over the kingdoms of the earth  (see Rev. 11: 15) and the first resurrection was indicated (see Rev. 11: 17– 18). We now live inside the Kingdom of God on the earth…

Kris Vallotton, Johnny Enlow, and Two Words for 2017

In the past four days, I have experienced two events that have forever marked me…

one miraculous; one devastating.

My grandson was born…healthy and beautiful and wondrous…

8 pounds and 11 ounces of promise and life…


a gracious friend and business partner of twenty five years died.

A miracle…sublime perfection and joy in flesh.


death…an enemy still triumphant.

See…here’s the thing.  God speaks to me in certain ways. Sometimes I don’t like it. Honestly.  Last year, I heard Him say that it was the year of betrayal.  I knew the POTUS would betray Israel towards the end of the year. I told my close friend and wife.  That’s it.  I also knew that many in the Church would betray the foundation and embrace a “new” or “another” gospel. I just never expected betrayal in my own life.  My point? I can’t separate myself from what I “hear”. Prophecy. Prophets. The “prophetic”. Blah…blah…blah.  Another word for the year? Another 2017 prediction? Yah…I am sick of it. I don’t understand how they can do it.  What are they doing to themselves…let alone their followers?  It seems to be more about the messenger than the message…that special day or event where the prophet releases his word.  Hah.  I want to give you two examples.  Please stick with me through this…maybe this “word” for 2017 will be different than the usual yearly “prophetic word”


In 2016, Kris Vallotton predicted…

 “a Russian “reformation”…

 a “spiritual awakening that is unprecedented in modern history”…

every city(in Russia) filled with joy and prosperity…

medical breakthroughs, inventions and innovations…

an historic economic boom as Russia exports their medical cures, automobiles (two new brands of cars even) and inventions to the nations of the world

great collaborations between government, commerce and business

corporations moving to the land (Russia) to be celebrated and empowered

great incentives given by the government to those that created wealth…lessons taken right out of the parables of the Talents and the Minas that Jesus told.

the righteous reigned in the land and a Jesus movement that will touch the entire world will be birthed in the universities, beginning in Moscow…

Russia becomes another big brother to Israel and makes a tridimensional covenant with her…

a cord of three strands which is not quickly torn apart

this partnership released a new era of forgiveness, security, and prosperity in both countries…


End of Kris Vallotton’s 2016 prophecy.

Now…he can cover his “prophetic butt” and say that we didn’t pray or intercede enough…

or he might say that he was seeing something future and the seeds were planted in 2016

or who knows what he could say or would say.

But, I will say this…

The exact opposite happened. Again…the exact opposite happened.

Russia grew…expanded its influence…erased the boundaries in the Middle East fought for during the “cold war”…manipulated and influenced the world in ways not seen in decades…and along with China, Venezuala, and Obama…betrayed/attacked Israel by using the U.N. Security Council.

In other words…nothing has changed. No reformation has started. No revival. No medical discoveries. No new automobiles…and definitely no new brotherhood and protection or defense of Israel by Russia and Putin.

Kris Vallotton prophecied out of his own narrative/filter and soul.

It was false. Wrong. Some would say…an abomination.

He won’t be held to account

He is too big to fail.

He is too popular and charismatic…

People will give him a pass…ah New Testament prophets get it wrong once in a while.

Guess what?

He perpetuated a man-centered, cross-less, narrative that is being pushed by many in the “signs and wonders”, “heaven to earth”, NAR hype-machine.

The charismatic (and I am a charismatic) ritualistic, “spiritual” service of worship and prophecy and experience is a denial of the true power of the Gospel….THE CROSS.  (For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.)

Now…let me give you an example of a “word” for 2017

Johnny Enlow says concerning 2017…

For clarity’s sake, what I am saying is that God is going to so bless America that for the next 30 years, at least, she will become progressively more beautiful in every way. This Reformation Glory Train is going to ride back and forth and up and down our whole nation and will be accompanied by millions of reformation angels as it travels. If Revival Glory produces “gold dust” as a sign and wonder, then Reformation Glory is going to produce “gold bars” equivalents as a sign and wonder.

In my old notebook, I wrote that 2017-2019 would be 3 years of great glory. I didn’t at that time even have 7 mountain language or a real understanding of Reformation, and so I lacked those descriptives back in 2004. However, I did write that in these years “healing will be the children’s bread”- meaning it would become very common and easy to obtain. I wrote, “the supernatural will be commonplace…angels will be easily visible…and translations and transportations in the spirit would be increasingly common,” as would new “amazing signs and wonders.”

What is an old narrative or wineskin? One that sees judgment, rapture, the antichrist, or the beast right around every corner. These are the early days of the kingdom age. A new era of renaissance is now firmly upon us. If you will plan and set your life around that reality you blue hairs (those over 50) can be the Joshua and Caleb’s of today. Joshua and Caleb were both over 80 when Israel crossed into the Promised Land. They were the two oldest men in Israel. If you will begin to think like them your bodies will begin to take the cues and your strength and health will be renewed.

For those from other nations, know that America becoming beautiful is only a piece of the puzzle. If you can rise high enough in the spirit and see the coming years you will note that the whole earth is becoming a beautiful garden… get on the Reformation Glory Train and ride prosperously. This is the age of restoration and the era of renaissance in the advanced knowledge of God.”



False…wrong…not true…same old same old.

Gold bricks? Angels easily visible?

New amazing signs and wonders?

If you can rise high enough (?)  you will see that the whole earth is becoming a beautiful garden?

A “prophet” expanding his narrative…his filter…NOT from the heart of God.

This stuff is popular. Guess what ?

It is no different than the “fake news” that is spread in various media outlets.

It is no different than the “reporting” of the media during the election cycle.

It is the same spirit.

Sensationalism.  Distortions. Magnifications. Lies.

The same root…money…popularity…and selling a narrative.  Forcing a filter to produce excitement in the readers/listeners and grooming followers.

I will say it…the spirit in the “prophetic” is the same spirit that is in the world.

Do I think Kris Vallotton or Johnny Enlow are purposeful liars ?

No. I really don’t. But…

I do think that they partake of the same delusional liberal/progressive spirit that drives the media machine.  Spin a tale large enough…and people will believe it.  That is the way of man.

In 2017, let’s reject the foolish prognostications and inflated expectations of man-centered, cross-less prophets.

Don’t listen to the voices that use the death of a “superstar” (whether it’s Prince, David Bowie, or George Michael) to illustrate their prophetic word.

Or someone who uses the Super Bowl half time show or score to explain what God is doing.

Or numbers 5777 or 777 or whatever.

Stop the insanity.  It is not God. It is man. Man. MAN.


After all of that…I have a word for you. Two words actually…

Simplicity and supremacy…

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” 2 Cor 11:3

“And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.”Col 1:18

The simplicity that is in Christ.  The supremacy of Christ.

Jesus Christ…firstborn from among the dead…without pretence or hypocrisy…the only answer for deception..the only answer for man.

Supreme Servant.

Simply God.

We need to return to those two messages (and they are one message).

We need to reject any message that inflates man and reduces Jesus Christ.

We need to speak out and question men and ministries that continually push a narrative and not Jesus Christ.

Guess what?

The simplicity that is in Christ and the supremacy of Christ meet at the Cross.

Out of that is birthed the answer to deception and beguilement and the answer to and for man.

That has never changed. It never will.

Let’s get back to the simple Gospel…getting people saved and healed…lets drop the (man-centered) foolish cries to takeover Hollywood or rule nations or …

Let’s return to making Jesus Christ supreme.  His will. His ways. His Person.

Give birth to a new vision of His majesty and supremacy and through that…let man and his messages and ways and lies…simply…die.

I will end with a word for the “prophets” of today.  Kris and Johnny ?  It’s from the Apostle Paul.

It starts like this…

“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus..”
