How You Respond Matters
For many months, I have wanted to address an issue that I have witnessed for several years now through Replenished Hope and certainly everywhere else in the Christian world. I do not normally post other people’s work on this page, but I thought this summed up what I have ached with God over and over concerning His People.
This is by Jeremiah Johnson. Many of you are familiar with his ministry.
DISTURBING PROPHETIC DREAM
“Several months ago while I was extensively studying Matthew 7:22-24 and asking God for increased revelation, I had one of the most disturbing prophetic dreams of my life. The Scripture I was studying in Matthew says, “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name did we not cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will say to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you who practice lawlessness.”
In the prophetic dream, I was taken to hell where I saw all these leaders and individuals who had performed miracles, cast out demons, and prophesied. What I was shown next, I will never forget. The Holy Spirit showed me long lines of people behind all of these leaders. He immediately revealed to me that these were all the people that had received the miracles, prophecies, and had been at one time delivered. As I gazed at the people in these
lines, He said to me, "Did they not RECEIVE miracles, prophecy, and deliverance, yet I never knew them?”
I woke up from the dream alarmed and startled. I said to the Holy Spirit, "So there are not only people that will perform signs, wonders, and miracles that will be sent to hell, but also people who receive all these things that will also be in hell. Why?" Immediately the Holy Spirit spoke again to me and said, "Because those that worked miracles, prophesied, and cast out demons never preached the full gospel of Jesus Christ which is the message of repentance. They were so in love with the gifts that I had given them that people became trophies and souvenirs to them. When My power would manifest in their ministries, they would tell people that I loved them, but never that they needed to repent for their sins. I tell you that a great deception will sweep over the signs and wonders movement in the earth. Beware of the ministries where miracles and prophecies will flow, but the message of repentance is a no go. You have been warned". Then I woke up.Will you pray with me today that those who move in God’s power will not only live a lifestyle of repentance but also preach it? What if people getting healed and told God loves them isn’t the full Gospel message?”
I will tell you first hand that I know even before I release a teaching or prophetic word from the Lord with a warning or correction that the message will hit the ground like a lead weight for most. The post will get hardly any comments and nearly zero shares. I have even had people write me desperate for help. They want to know why their life is turned upside down and the times God gives me insight into their sins and wrong doings, almost always they argue and walk away. Sometimes they are quite nasty as they leave. If you are going to ask a Prophet what God says, then you must be open to hearing even what you want to stay hidden. I have been a psychotherapist for 19 years and a human for 45 years. I have heard it all and done a lot of it personally. There is little that God could tell me about you that I am not familiar with. My Calling is to Set The Captives Free, not tell you that there is nothing to change in order to be Free. One thing to grasp is that before God promotes a Vessel, He will put them through what other people will come to be freed of. Meaning, I have been there before you on some relatable level, and God gave me the keys to set people free.
We must decide to have open minds and hearts. Believe me, I would love nothing but to give you happy messages that make you feel Good all day long. No one likes to be God’s voice during moments of correction to His people. For those that know me personally, you are well aware that I take my own sins and mistakes before the Throne daily. I understand completely that my mantles and anointing flow openly when I have dealt with my own business. I cannot help you if I have the same issue in my heart. No, it is not always fun or easy, but the results in all areas of my life make the process worth it.
How we respond to God’s correction Matters in every possible way. He desires to not leave us as sinners, but to transform us from Glory to Glory. We have to decide to join God fully so that He can make us on the Potter’s Wheel.
For those of you who are in need of Healing and Breakthrough, I have a Healing page on our Website https://www.replenishedhope.com/need-healing where you can learn on a deeper level on how wounds and sickness happen, but also how to break free. I am adding a section on Grace very soon. I have a teaching coming out about what we were taught about Grace is incomplete and leads us to use it wrong.
God is not finished with you yet, so decide to not be finished with God either. We have to take Him as a whole and not parts. We all have sinned and fallen short of His Glory. Decide to not let that sin be your stumbling block to your future.
