The majority of American believers are ’emotion led,’ instead of Spirit led, making them gullible, and easy to scam or rob.
The enemy has his wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing, placed in leadership positions, especially in the media. With the pretense of reaching millions with the gospel through the airwaves, they are able to steal millions from carnal emotional followers.
This never happens in My Kingdom, because everyone who enters through it’s narrow gates, does things My way. In order to do things My way, you must be led by My Spirit, not your emotions.
Remember, you were not created with emotions, but with My Spirit, when I breathed life into dirt. When Man fell, his soul was separated from My Spirit and he was left with a fallen nature.
The fallen nature is either influenced, guided by or controlled by emotion, so whatever seemed right in his own eyes, he would do. But the way which seems right to man, is always the way of death, Proverbs 14:12.
Emotion, is part of the fallen nature and Spirit is part of the new nature. “For they that are led by their emotions do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are led by the Spirit the things of the kingdom,” Romans 8:5 KJV.
When a man receives My nature through the born again experience, he begins to crucify his old nature including emotions and begins to let My Spirit be his new guidance system.
Without intimacy with Me, there is no way to crucify the old nature. Millions of busy believers continue to be led by their emotions, claiming to have no time for intimacy. This results in bad decision, after bad decision, because each decision is made according to what seems right, and makes them easy targets for Wolves, Ezekiel 34:2-8.
Wolves stir the emotions to a point of giving and giving, until there is no more to give! Well scripted pleas, that seem absolutely right in the eyes of man, are carefully planned by wolf leaders in sheep’s clothing.
The emotional plea is designed to rob the American believer of money, that should go into building My Kingdom. The emotions of man are no match for these pleas, because they are so well scripted to deceive, Mark 13:22.
Eventually, the sheep’s clothing is ripped off and the emotion led believer is appalled at how he was suckered in, when he discovers he has been paying for million dollar mansions and 50 million dollar private jets for the wolf, instead of winning the lost or feeding the orphans.
The emotion led believer has no one to blame but himself, for being too busy, to become intimate with Me and become Spirit led.
The saddest part of the story is, the emotion led believer in another emotional reaction blames Me, and stops giving all together, then becomes bitter and many times leaves the faith! Do not rely on your fallen nature to make decisions search and find the narrow gate to My Kingdom and be led by My Spirit and you will never be ripped off again.
