What does yelling and screaming (croaking?) at people in your “audience” (church attendees) or everyone falling down when you blow on them, or rolling around on the floor, got anything to do with the way the Son of God ministered His Spirit to people? They surely are not under the influence of the Spirit of Christ, seeking a blessing from His Holy Spirit, or for that matter, standing on any solid scriptural ground.
People in the scripture who convulsed, fell to the ground, rolled around or acted like they were dead, were demon possessed, at least according to the scriptures.
“Then one of the crowd answered and said, “Teacher I brought you my son, who has a mute spirit and whenever it seizes him , it throws him down…Then they brought him to Him, and immediately the spirit convulsed him, and he fell to the ground and rolled around” (Mark 9:17, 18, 20)
There are times in the scriptures when people fall to the ground because of showing humility or worship. There are times when they fall down because of being scared to death by the appearance of messengers from another realm. But never are we told, they are then convulsed, and start rolling around on the ground like they were being electrocuted or acted like they had just suffered a stroke. Dead people usually can’t tell which hand is reaching for what side of them or that they are even being addressed.
“And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:” (Revelations 1:7)
“And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,” (Mark 5: 22)
“For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet:” (Mark 7:25)
“And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God” (Revelations 19: 10)
How can “supposed” followers of Christ, not see, or at least sense the difference, between what happens when your demon possessed and being filled with the God’s Holy Spirit? That is completely absurd. Why can’t they see?
The scriptures call it a mystery; then reveals the truth of how long this has been going on, who deceived them, how they were blinded ….. and even why.
“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; …. The coming of the lawless one is in accordance with the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive that love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them a strong delusion, that they should believe the lie that they be condemned who did not believe the truth but took pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:7-12)
The Strong Delusion of Ministering Frogs
Notice it says the coming of the lawless one. It has been coming for a long time now. A lawless spirit that works wonders and miracles in the realm of the Christian religion. A lawless spirit; coming from the mouth of Satan’s unholy trinity; the dragon, the beast and the false prophet.
A lawless spirit, making people feel euphoric and godly with the “chills of God” while not having to change their carnal life at all. A lawless spirit stealthily working it’s tens of thousands subordinate teaching spirits, right into mainstream Christianity. Seducing spirits using men to teach a more “manageable” Christ, by a false (frog) spirit (posing as the Holy Spirit), through a weak and false “Christian gospel”.
“For if he who comes preaches another Jesus who we have not preached, or if you receive another spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted… you actually listen!...For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness. (Which is really unrighteousness in disguise) …. (2 Corinthians 11:4, 13-15)
He said they would come, didn’t He? They came in response to an ungodly desire to see miracles, and circumvent a life of faith. Christ then and now refuses to give in to man’s carnality. The righteous shall live and be justified by faith, not by signs.
“And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, this is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.” (Luke 11:29)
“For false (versions of) Christ and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.” (Mark 13: 22, 23)
If Christ won’t give signs to this (wicked and hungry for signs) generation; the wonderworking frogs will. Their purpose is to ridicule and change the grace of God (what is needed to live a godly life) into… you guessed it, carnal living.
“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness (carnal living), and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.”(Jude 3, 4)
This lawless religious spirit of the frog, with his “ministers of righteousness” has been hard at work creating another kind of righteousness through the teaching of devils. One that isn’t righteous at all. Slowly seducing millions of people to believe the same thing those evil spirits taught the Jews to believe, right before the first appearing of Christ.
That being, religious traditions and practices (no matter how scriptural or outrageous), outweigh the commandments of God.
A lawless religious spirit that if followed will cause all your religious experiences and ministries to be judged by God as one big lawless life;
“Not every one that says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? And in your name have cast out devils? And in your name done many wonderful works? And then will I say to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work lawlessness.” (Matthew 7:21, 22)
Further notice that all those miraculous works are being performed for a people who think they’re Christians but have refused truth so that they can take pleasure in the unrighteousness of their worldly pursuits. Worldliness is unrighteousness.
In other words; there are the real people of God walking in truth while abstaining from unrighteousness, and there are false people of God who, rejecting the truth become inundated with false religious wonders, that gives them a fake sense of righteousness. These pseudo disciples hold to a form of righteousness (Christian traditions and practices) that has no power in which to change their life.
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, haughty, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness (righteousness), but denying the power: from such turn away.” (2 Timothy 3:1-5)
The power of the ‘strong delusion’ is that no one knows that they are doing those terrible things. The “form of godliness” (Christian traditions and practices) they hold to, allows them to think there’s nothing wrong…. Till it’s too late.
The power of real godliness is that it changes the one practicing it. It requires you staying close to God and considering God’s heart in all you do. Sound doctrine is no more than “wholesome words of Christ” that teach us godliness, that all must hold on to, or be swept away by the “strong delusion” of the Ministering Frogs.
Anyone’s teachings that do not instruct you to deny ungodliness or worldliness are probably coming from a “frog spirit” and should be avoided …. At all cost.
The minds of men who are listening to those “frog spirits” have been corrupted and are just trying to get something from you. Don’t be fooled by their theatrics; they want your money. Just walk away.
“If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the teaching of godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, useless wrangling of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain (money). Get away from them.” (1Timothy 6: 3-5)
Instead of denying themselves, picking up their cross and following Christ, they have found an easier way. They have found a more tolerant Jesus. Outwardly it looks like the narrow way, just a little wider. Not so confining or restricting; plenty of room to bring your desires and opinions into the Kingdom.
Moving and grooving in the power of God minus that awful self crucifying cross. What a great deal. A faith requiring no real sacrificial works. Just go Sunday to receive the latest bestselling “Christian teaching” or your portion of the “whamo” of the “Holy Spirit” and walk away feeling “spiritual”. This new form of righteousness (which is unrighteousness in a new package) allows people to believe that they can keep a little darkness around. After all they know the hottest teaching, don’t they? They were slain in the Spirit every Sunday for two years weren’t they? They’re not lovers of this world; just “friends” with it.
They have swallowed the lie that religious practices or traditions can substitute for a godly life. Their “faith” is dead; having no real works. This allows them to believe that they can keep a little darkness in themselves, even though they claim to be living “inside” God. They have disbelieved a most important message about God. It has escaped their notice that God doesn’t allow any darkness inside of Him. …
“This then is the message which we have heard from him, and declare to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:” (1 John 1:5, 6)
It doesn’t matter if you speak in tongues, are slain in the spirit, are entertained weekly by an “on fire preacher”, been healed of cancer, or raised from the dead; if you don’t practice righteousness and love your brother…. you are not of (inside) God.
It doesn’t matter if you attend church regularly and teach Sunday school or become a preacher, missionary or TV evangelist; if you don’t practice righteousness and love your brother…. you are not of (inside) God.
It doesn’t matter if you have written a bestselling Christian book, speak all over the world, support all the orphanages in China, or have a ministry that feeds thousands; if you don’t practice righteousness and love your brother…. you are not of (inside) God.
It doesn’t matter if you live in a Christian community, half way house, or attend a Home church, mega church or any of the 10,000 divisions that Christianity has divided itself into; if you don’t practice righteousness and love your brother…. you are not of (inside) God.
“In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest; whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother.” (1 John 3:10)
The scriptures say that believers will turn away from truth (sound teaching) to believe “fables”. I think if Christians are going to believe fables, there is appropriate one about a Princess and a Frog. The fable says that if the princess will just do as He asks, and (bows down) to kiss the frog; he will turn into a handsome prince and they will live happily ever after. The Fable is a lie. The frog is from hell.
May our true Prince of peace reveal to us His princess bride; … and that the other frog really is a prince ….The prince of Darkness. May God lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the Flood and Frogs coming from Satan’s mouth.
