Err on the Side of Faith

  • During the past few weeks and months we have seen prophets and leaders disconnect from the prophecies from Kim Clement, Mark Taylor and others regarding President Trump winning and being sworn into a second term in office. They have used scriptural passages, constitutional law, the set times of government, their own reason disguised in what sounds like the Wisdom of God and their Five-fold resume and pedigree to convince the ekklesia that we need to move on from the promise of God. 

    They claim that we didn't pray and repent enough or the right way or for the right things. They have claimed that the prophetic words were conditional and that we didn't meet the conditions. Well, this layperson just doesn't agree, and I am not the only one. I have read the comments of the people who have been following and partnering with these church leaders for years disagreeing with their beloved teachers and mentors in the Faith. I am the first one to admit that having a large group of people agree with you doesn't make you correct. However, spouting off that you have been in ministry for 25 or 30 years doesn't guard against error and fallibility either. Indeed, I believe if that is your fall back to convince others you are right and they are wrong, you are already open for pride that will go before a fall.

    Personally, if I am going to be in error, I would prefer to err on the side of believing the prophets and the Word of the Lord than to abandon my confession of Faith. With that being said, I do agree that we need to start now cleaning house in our government from local all the way up to the Federal level. We need to do it for the Kingdom of God to have a place that is free to send the Gospel abroad and around the World. It would also be nice to deliver a united government with the House and Senate to President Trump once he is sworn back in from this attempted theft of THE PEOPLE's vote for our Chief Executive. We should also keep in mind that when the theft of the presidential election gets sorted out, the House and Senate may follow. Common sense would suggest that if the vote was affected for the Office of the President, it very well may have been stolen at the Congressional level as well.

    I want to encourage every born again believer that you have the same Holy Spirit as any Five-fold minister, the same Word, the same Blood of Jesus, and THE SAME MEASURE of Faith that allowed us to get born again. The faith as a grain of mustard seed will have the same affect on that mountain for you as it will for them. This authority was given to the Church, not the Five-fold ministers only. In fact, the purpose of the Five-fold ministry is for the equipping of the saints. Let's equip our armor and take back what was stolen from us! 

    I realize that this may seem like a rant against Five-fold ministry, but it isn't. The Offices of the Five-fold ministry were established by God and is part of His plan to govern the Body of Christ while we are in the Earth. However, just like Joe Biden, not everyone that holds one of those Offices are qualified or worthy of the Office. I am not questioning anyone's calling, but I will follow them as they follow Christ and I encourage you to do the same. I believe we need to shut off the voices who bring discouragement from the main stream media to the church leader who would try and make you believe that we didn't repent enough and jump through enough hoops for God. If we cannot believe that 1 John 1:9 is true, If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Do we believe that the Blood of Jesus is enough? Hebrews 10:14 thinks the Blood of Jesus is enough, For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified. Verses 17 and 18 drives this home, then He adds, Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no  more. Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin. If we no longer need an offering for sin, then why do we need to repent more than once? Yes, I know that repent means; to turn away from and go in a different direction. But, I also know the difference between perfected and being sanctified. He made us perfect, the righteousness of God in Christ, and He is taking us through a sanctification process. Sanctified and set apart for good works.

    The enemy isn't stupid, and neither should we be. If he can discourage us with our own allies, and divide us from within, we will not endure this battle. We all know that a house divided cannot stand, whether that is the Body of Christ or a Nation. We have to have some sure weapons in our quiver to stand against this onslaught from every side. Of course, we have the Full Armor of God, but we must become skillful with the weapons of our warfare. For, the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but MIGHTY through God to the pulling down of strongholds. You might be surprised to learn that some of those strongholds are amongst our own ranks. Religious spirits and intellectualism has infiltrated our ranks, and we must pray and bind them and cast them out. The people are our allies, the demonic influences are not. 

    What do we stand on? We always go to the Word. I believe the Lord has stirred up a few strategic scriptures inside of me to share, that will work in tandem to stand against these insidious enemies.

    Proverbs 9:10 & Proverbs 4:7

    Proverbs 3:5-12 & 1 Peter 5:5-11

    Philippians 4:6-7

    Isaiah 55:11-13

    Mark 11:22-26

    We have got to get what Joshua understood. We cannot repeat the mistakes of the former generation. We must declare that we are going to cross over this Jordan and take the land! So many times when Israel was defeated it was because they did not obey and believe the Word of the Lord God. Which generation are we going to be? The generation that was wicked and unbelieving and spend another 40 years in the wilderness? Or are we going to go in and take what the Lord promised us? Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering for He who promised is faithful. Keep believing and declaring the Word of the Lord. Go to YouTube and listen to the Trump prophecies. Paul admonished Timothy in 1 Timothy 1:18-19 This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you that by  them you may wage the good warfare having faith and good conscience, which some having rejected concerning the faith have suffered shipwreck.

    Add these scriptures to your daily confession and reading. Build up your faith and stand against the discouragement that is trying to make us weary. 

    God Bless. We WIN!
