Leaven of the Pharisees


“Then Jesus said to them, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees,”   Matthew 16:6 NKJV.

My child, the warning I spoke about the leaven of the Pharisees is still resounding to My Church today.  I cannot bless what is not of My Word or My Spirit.  I AM immutable.  I have given My Word and it will not return to Me barren or tainted by the culture and opinions of man’s wisdom.

The history of Israel is truthfully recounted in My Word.  The warnings are clear not to make the same errors that they did.  The sad truth is that the very ones who should have rejoiced at My first coming were so compromised by their religion and made-made traditions that they fought against Me with great zeal.  They had become spiritually arrogant and unteachable.  The pride of life ruled their hearts: they were the Chosen People.  They looked for a Messiah who would meet their requirements according to their interpretation of the prophecies about the Holy One.  They stood face-to-face with Me and called Me a blasphemer.

Beware of the leaven of those who are the current-day Pharisees and Sadducees.  These are the ones who twist My Word to call evil good, discarding the need for the doctrine of repentance.  These also include the ones who would use the Law of Moses to control and manipulate My flock.  My warnings and corrections to the Churches that I gave to John on the Isle of Patmos are as much for today as they were when I first gave them.

It is time to purge your hearts of the leaven of the opinions of men and their traditions.  Cling to Me.  Follow My voice only as you read it in My Word. Holy Spirit will guide your steps.  Godly wisdom is part of My divine nature which is part of your inheritance in Me.

Consume the pure meat of My Word as your heart burns for the Truth.  Bring all things before Me that you hear or read and ask for discernment and guidance.  The hour is late.  Those who continue to consume the poison of the culturally tainted gospel will suffer many things that need not be.  But I will come and purge My Church even as I drove out the money-changers.  My House, My Body, will be a pure Temple of prayer and obedience once again.

Come sit with Me and I will teach you My ways.  I will take those willing to learn and those who will submit to the spiritual purging of the leaven they have eaten and will reveal My glory to them.  These are the ones who will come out of this cleansing process shining like the sun.

These shining ones are the forerunners of a great army that will once again shake the pillars of hell releasing the captive souls of the sons of men.  Rejoice with Me.  Do not be mesmerized by the darkness at the door.  My hand is moving and I will not be denied.  In Me you have victory.  Receive My grace as I pour it out upon you even now.  Shalom.

“But the path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day….. My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.  Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh,”   Proverbs 4:18, 20-22 NKJV.
