“If God be glorified in Him, God shall also glorify Him in Himself, and shall straightway glorify Him” John 13:32.
There are a lot of voices going forth in this hour and a lot of them are not speaking from God! There are many of which God has chosen, positioned, and established; but yet, there are some that are going forth from their own will to pursue their own goals and to build their own kingdom.
Their words start out as being from God, but in the end benefiting the desires and purpose of their own agenda… These which seek to build their own are seeking to upbuild and uplift themselves in the eyes of the people.. They desire the people to focus on them and not the purpose and kingdom of god.
Many in the five fold ministry are making the ministry, anointing, gifts, and callings all to glorify themselves and not God. Many seek the glory and praise that is only due to god almighty. Being filled with hidden motives and agendas, they then become defensive for the fear of being unmasked and revealed by the true anointing.
Those that are seeking to build for their own success and purpose, tend to cast down and accuse others to shift the blame and guilt from their own impure motives and selfish desires. The word of God says and we shall know them by their fruits as well as we should also analyze the words and discern the spirit from which they speak. Therefore spiritual discernment is necessary, because a wolf in sheep clothing is hard to detect with the carnal mind.
Many false prophets shall arise in theses times and many are coming with a word to subject man to their will and to further their own goals and purpose. Their words are smooth and spoken in ways that seems to entice, to lure, and to vanitize the anointing and ministry as if it belongs to man and not to God.
Jesus Christ is the “suffering servant” and only his suffering suffices for the sacrifice of the people. He is Christ Jesus, “the anointed one” and only his is suffering and sacrifice deserves the glory, the praise, and the honor. We have to recognize cunning and deceitful spirits that comes laced with vain and sweet words, but in fact are inwardly ravenous wolves who prey on vulnerable and helpless souls.
We must discern that the words that comes from the father, will glorify his son and upbuild the Kingdom of God and will not benefit and glorify man’s agenda….. But instead, the words that come from the Father will upbuild and benefit the Kingdom of God, the souls of the people…. And not the hidden greed, ungodly motives, and agenda of those preying on others for their own benefit.
“But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep” 2 Peter 2:1 (ESV).
