Excerpts from the New Book “Called to Walk Alone” ~ Currently in Writing
Prophets for a Time as This…..
“Here is our problem, we have chosen to crawl into our own comfort-zones of serving and knowing God and to ignore what is going on, for the sake of not being ridiculed, branded or persecuted for speaking the Truth in Love.
In the process we have abandoned our posts and have forsaken the multitudes canvased by these leaders and “evangelised” to be converted by their sickly gospel and the deadly disease of their erroneous teaching and ways!
God needs prophets to arise, He needs His prophetic body (which includes every true Spirit-filled believer) to arise, not to waste time attacking what is wrong (although we may need to point to it), but focusing their hearts upon proclaiming the Truth and what is right, so people may hear the Truth and turn away from evil!
We cannot and may not forsake our duty to this generation without being the Standard of the Holy Spirit being raised up against this tide of evil that is facing and threatening millions.
Alone we may feel small and intimidated, even experiencing the sickly feeling of being powerless to do anything about it.
But as we speak and others are stirred and begin to speak also — as a body — consisting of many members around the world, speaking with one accord as the Holy Spirit gives utterance — we will become God’s Voice in diminishing strongholds and in putting the enemy to flight!”

Why We Walk Alone…..
“There are many ‘reasons’ offered up by the religious leaders of our time when people leave their institutions.
They are mostly presented to reflect negatively upon those who are leaving and most of the time they are fabricated lies, created to protect their own reputation and the little kingdoms they have created to serve their self-driven ambitions and ideals.
Not much has changed since the days of Jesus and of the early church — religion will still deceive, lie and murder the innocent and the pure in order to hide from being exposed for who and what they truly are.
They will still smear, concoct, bribe and sell those out who would dare to lift the curtain and expose their hypocrisy, lies and deception.
Religion is still the very same dirty business that hanged Jesus on the tree and its methods has not changed either — it still fights, opposes and threatens to crucify those who stand for Truth and who therefore stand against it.
The true reasons for people leaving the wicked religious institutions of our day are many times obscured, and the blame laid to their charge and at their door — while the truth is that they leave, because they refuse to be a part of the hypocrisy, and therefore have no choice or option except for doing so!”
