I heard, “The Religious Spirit is being uprooted!”
In a vision, I saw Jesus with a shovel, and He was taking this shovel and “uprooting” something in the earth.
I asked what this was, and The Holy Spirit said that they were the “religious spirits” who were deeply rooted into many Churches today.
A religious spirit is condemning and tries to replace The Holy Spirit. It is works based and not Grace based.
Jesus also came against the religious spirits when He walked the earth. The Pharisees took the commandments of God and formed traditions out of them, but their hearts were far from God.
Jesus called them,”White washed tombs, beautiful on the outside but dead on the inside”. They did not even recognize their Messiah standing in their midst, but sought to put Him to death.
If you have been a victim of a religious spirit, be encouraged today. Jesus is uprooting them from your life.
“Beloved. I know many of My own have been hurt by religion. The anti-Christ spirit has always been around to condemn and to bring down and attempt to destroy the faith of the Bride of Christ.
It seeks to destroy the Prophetic Word, and those who prophesy. For the testimony of Jesus, is the Spirit of Prophecy.
But He who is Greater is uprooting them from your life. Although many tares will remain among the wheat until the End of the Age, My Spirit in you shall cause the religious spirits to flee from your life.
It is time to be free from all hindrances. I AM bringing people to you that will uplift you and not condemn you. They walk in Grace and Love. Love covers a multitude of sin.
The Spirit of Pride is being removed from My Church and replaced by those who are filled with The Holy Spirit of Grace.
You will know them by their fruit, Beloved. A bad tree cannot produce good fruit and a good tree will not produce bad fruit.
You have been planted by the Father and your roots are deep into the Good Soil, who is Christ. But the evil spirits shall be uprooted and thrown into the fire.
You are like a Garden locked, My Bride, a Spring locked, a fountain sealed. Your shoots are an orchard of pomegranates with all choicest fruits.
I AM coming to commune with you My Bride. All evil will flee! Awake, O North Wind, and come, O South Wind!
Blow upon My Garden, let its spices flow. I have come into My Garden where no evil may dwell. We will dine together, My Love, and eat My choicest Fruits.
I have come to weed My Garden; the religious spirits shall no longer hinder you, My Child. Only My Good Fruit shall remain.
Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. You are under Grace. There is now therefore NO condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.
As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is your Beloved among the sons. Sit down under My Shadow with great delight, and My Fruit will be sweet to your taste.
It is time for Relationship, Dear One. No more religion. No more rules and regulations. You have been set free. For freedom, Christ has set you free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
You are Mine. I have brought you to My Banqueting House and My Banner over you is Love.”
RELIGIOUS SPIRIT : Religious spirits are meant to keep you in a state of “doing” rather than “being.” A religious spirit replaces religious activity for the power of The Holy Spirit. In fact, the religious spirit is Satan’s answer for The Holy Spirit. The ultimate goal of the religious spirit is to cut someone off from a real and vital relationship with The LORD Himself or to condemn you for having one. It is a spirit of Pride. They believe in their own righteousness instead of having the righteousness of God in Christ. Even though the religious spirit damages people’s hearts, they feel they are “doing God’s work” as they oppress, condemn and treat others with unloving contempt. It HATES the Spirit of Prophecy and will work against it and the prophets, because the testimony of Jesus IS the Spirit of Prophecy.
“By this you will know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and which is already in the world at this time. You, little children, are from God and have overcome them, because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.” 1 John 4:2-4.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside, but on the inside are full of dead men’s bones and every kind of impurity. In the same way, on the outside you appear to be righteous, but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.” Matthew 23:27-28.
“But Jesus replied, “Every plant that My heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by its roots.”” Matthew 15:13.
“You have rebuked the nations; You have destroyed the wicked; You have erased their name forever and ever. The enemy has come to eternal ruin, and You have UPROOTED their cities; the very memory of them has vanished. But The LORD abides forever; He has established His throne for judgment.” Psalm 9:5-7.
“Then the angel told me to write, “Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.” So I fell at his feet to worship him. But he told me, “Do not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers who rely on the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” Revelation 19:9-10.
“Therefore, just as you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to walk in Him, ROOTED and built up in Him, established in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, which are based on human tradition and the spiritual forces of the world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2:6-8.
“I AM the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman.” John 15:1.
“A garden locked is my sister, my bride, a spring locked, a fountain sealed. Your shoots are an orchard of pomegranates with all choicest fruits, henna with nard, nard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense, myrrh and aloes, with all choice spices — a garden fountain, a well of living water, and flowing streams from Lebanon. Awake, O north wind, and come, O south wind! Blow upon my garden, let its spices flow.Let my beloved come to his garden, and eat its choicest fruits.” Song of Solomon 4:12-16.
“O you who dwell in the gardens, with companions listening for your voice; let Me hear it.” Song of Solomon 8:13.
“I baptize you with water for repentance, but after me will come One more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with The Holy Spirit and with fire. His winnowing fork is in His hand to clear His threshing floor and to gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” Matthew 3:11-12.
