Prophecy against top worldly preachers
13 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of the children of Ammon, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have ripped up the women with child of Gilead, that they might enlarge their border:
14 But I will kindle a fire in the wall of Rabbah, and it shall devour the palaces thereof, with shouting in the day of battle, with a tempest in the day of the whirlwind:
15 And their king shall go into captivity, he and his princes together, saith the LORD.
Let me expound the message we receive for today with their Hebrew meaning, root words or symbolization so one understand the message more easily. (I have removed words added to the scripture by translators for readability).
13 Thus saith the LORD; For three [symbolizing set period] transgressions [rebellion] of the children of Ammon [tribal / nation], and for four [symbolizing the world], I will not turn away thereof; because they have ripped [divided] up the women with child [symbolizing spiritually expecting people] of Gilead [symbolizing people with unsure understanding], that they might enlarge their border [ that is increase in wealth and fame]:
14 But I will kindle a fire in the wall of Rabbah [among the great], and it shall devour [burn up] the palaces thereof, with shouting [signal] in the day of battle [war], with a tempest [whirlwind symbolizing God's anger] in the day of the whirlwind [God's wrath]:
15 And their king [top ruler] shall go into captivity, he and his princes together, saith the LORD.
Thus the scripture expounds to:-
Thus saith the LORD; For a set period He bore the rebellion of the children of the nation, and of the world, I will not turn back thereof; because they have divided up the spiritually expecting people of people with unsure understanding, that they might increase in wealth and fame:
But I will kindle a fire among the great, and it shall burn up the palaces thereof, like a signal in the day of war, with a anger as in the day of the wrath:
And their top ruler shall go into captivity, he and his princes together, saith the LORD.
Today's message is against those top preachers that show themselves as dong God's work but are more working towards building their own wealth and fame. They are shamelessly devouring up people coming to the Lord, who are thirsting for the Lord, just to feed their greed.
Yesterday someone was talking of a pastor, who found his own son doing drugs. His wife started questions why this happened when they were doing the Lord's work. I have seen such happen in a worst way when I was still a Catholic, to a Catholic charismatic woman leader from Bangalore with a calling of a Prophetess but not rooted in the Word. People used to call her every day to ask her what word she had for them and this word she gave use to come true in their lives. This woman due to her lack of foundation, but great gifting was the cause of leading my elder sister to become a devote Mary worshipper. My sister too having a calling of a Prophetess was guided by her. Later when I came out of the Catholic Church and was learning about callings I inquired from the Lord about this woman and the Lord exposed her. This woman lost her daughter due to drugs overdose. She used to tell others about their future but did not know her own present.
In today's message the Lord is warning those who are not building His people but doing their own thing. He is going to come hard on them in ways they would not expect. Today's message says soon we will see one famous preacher and his disciples being decommissioned and I hope this happens in India for the state among the celebrity preachers is very bad here, in fact I was praying for this. India needs a shaking.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, as your Word says there are those whom You have anointed as Men of God and then there and those whom people anoint as Men of God and also those who anointed themselves as Men of God. People think gifting is what makes one a Man of God. Lord we pray those who are misleading your people due to their lack of understanding realize and repent and those who are misleading for their personal reasons be exposed and removed from the places they hold. Lord your people need true shepherds, your anointed ones to led them...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
