The Unveiling of the Self-Promoters


“Within minutes they were bickering over who of them would end up the greatest.  But Jesus intervened: “Kings like to throw their weight around and people in authority like to give themselves fancy titles.  It’s not going to be that way with you. Let the senior among you become like the junior; let the leader act the part of the servant”   Luke 22:24-26, MSG.

My child, there are many who have used My name to acquire fame and riches without even knowing Me.  These are the self-promoters who have placed themselves into positions of authority among My people by their own works and words.  They have done much harm and brought reproach to My name through their wicked ways and deeds.

But these are the days of unveiling which will expose the true nature of each heart.  No longer will these wolves be able to hide in the sheepfold.  Their true hearts and character will be revealed so even the babes will understand who and what they are.  These “sons of Belial” will no longer hide behind religious speak, but they will testify of their true nature by the words of their mouths.  Their arrogance and pride will embolden them as they throw all caution aside and walk openly in their sins and wicked ways.  They think they have corrupted My Gospel beyond the point of no return.  But I tell you their victory celebrations are premature.

I will use their self-satisfied and self-serving ways against them.  The stink of sin that is upon these deceivers will awaken and repulse those whom they have deceived.  At the same time I will pour out My conviction upon the hearts of men and many will be ashamed that they ever followed after the words of these self-promoters and religious sharks.

As sure as the tare is revealed at the harvest time when the true wheat is heavy with fruit, so will My truly anointed ministers be revealed in this hour.  They will lead by example with a servant’s heart.  These are the ones who have died to “self” and seek after My heart.  Their love for Me is whole-hearted and pure.  There is no pretense or insincerity in them.

In this year, you will see the self-promoters brought down.  I did not set the five-fold ministry gifts in My Body so they could become celebrities and lords.  I will raise up the heads of the true ministers of My Word.  They will welcome and teach the newly harvested souls the truth of My Gospel. They will wash the feet of the babes and feed them first with milk and then the strong meat of the greater revelation of Who I AM.

As I begin this process of cleansing My House, it may seem chaotic but, trust Me, this work is necessary.  When I drove the money-changers out of the Temple I overturned tables and caused a great tumult.  So be prepared for a shaking as I come in this hour to bring needed correction to My Body.  When I am finished realigning and restoring My Church, she will enter into her greatest hour.

Rejoice and be glad even in these challenging days for the work we will do together is of epic proportions.  I release My peace and grace to you so that your heart will not be dismayed as we enter the days ahead.  Shalom.

“Jesus went straight to the Temple and threw out everyone who had set up shop, buying and selling.  He kicked over the tables of loan sharks and the stalls of dove merchants.  He quoted this text: My house was designated a house of prayer; You have made it a hangout for thieves.  Now there was room for the blind and crippled to get in.  They came to Jesus and he healed them”    Matthew 21:12-14, MSG.
