For those who desire strong meat!
There is a true and there is a false anointing. If the anointing you are drawing from doesn’t bring glory to the Father, but it draws you to bring glory to the vessel, then you are being ensnared by a false anointing. This is just a warning! And also if the vessel producing the anointing if it demands honor rather than to point you to the true source of a pure anointing, then I would question it. Because the Holy Spirit does not draw attention to Himself but to God! And also the Holy Spirit only speaks forth words of wisdom from the Son!
When it is all over, we will be presenting all our crowns before the King of glory. So we might as well get used of it now…. take off the crown of glory, humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, and He will lift you up. Those who humble themselves will be exalted, and those who exalt themselves will surely be humbled!
The enemy is going about like a roaring lion seeking who he can devour. If he knows he can’t entice you with carnal things, then surely he will use those things that will. For surely there will be signs, and wonders, miracles, and healings, but they will be counterfeit. They will only be used to entice you and entrap you. Beware!
Test the spirit whether it be of God! Don’t allow the enemy to blind you to the truth. Do not be enslaved, enticed, manipulated, or controlled by anyone. Be discerning; wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove!
Bring honor only to the King of glory and His gifts, to His spirit; do not use Him to build up a name, and a fame, and a kingdom for yourself. For what did Jesus do in the temple? He was radical; He did not use tack; He turned over the tables of the money changers, and called them vipers!
Don’t let anyone quench your anointing, no matter who they are. Trust the conviction of your heart, to step out in faith, and speak words of wisdom that build up! Be sober! Be vigilant!
A vessel producing a true anointing will not desire honor, but to only bring honor to the true source of the anointing. Our hearts can be very deceptive; only God knows our heart; but we must examine the motives behind our action before it is too late!
We must bow down, and cast our crowns before the King of Glory if we want to flow in His true anointing in its fullest measure. Otherwise, you are dabbling in witchcraft! And that will only bring torment and destruction to yourself, and draw every unclean spirit!
For the Lord is bringing down all the idols. We either break before the Rock willingly, or the Rock will fall upon us and crush us! I know this is a strong word, but I feel the urgency of the hour to speak it forth!
Those who have ears to hear; hear the word of the Lord!
I’ve been told to not give such a strong word, to use tact, or people won’t listen, but what did Jesus do. Is He telling us to water down His words? Did He say to not grieve His spirit? Should we hinder the true sheep to get fed the true word so that they can grow strong? Didn’t He say to sound the alarm; to blow the trumpet? If we don’t warn, then their blood will be on our hands!
Surely this word is not meant for the humble of heart. This word is a warning to the true sheep to beware of the counterfeit gifts that are flowing. This is to warn you to keep your guard up for the wolves who are hidden in sheep’s clothing who are sent out to steal, kill, and destroy who you are in Christ; to ensnare you so they can control you, abuse you, and build themselves up in their own kingdom which is not the Kingdom of God!!!
And this is also for those who might already be ensnared, not willingly, into these types of practices, and need to be set free. For truly deliverance is the children’s bread, and this is the hour for captives to come out from the harsh taskmasters, to come out from the bondage and control of the enemy, and to walk in the liberty Jesus gave His life for us to have!
I pray grace unto grace, and even great grace to you!
Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
