The Danger of the”Hyper Grace” Prophetic Movement

Posted: 20 Jun 2018 06:58 AM PDT

The Danger of the”Hyper Grace” Prophetic Movement(By Jeremiah Johnson) “Prophetic ministry flowing from those called to the office of prophet under the New Covenant still has the capacity to rebuke, correct, and discipline. Does it need to be done with brokenness and the right heart? Absolutely! But for the hyper-grace prophetic movement to now teach that the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross has banned prophets from delivering prophetic words that rebuke, bring correction, discipline, and call for repentance is heresy.  Here are five key indicators that the hyper-grace prophetic movement has overtaken a church culture or movement:

1. Warning the people that there are consequences for their sin and rebellion now gets prophets labeled as “doomsday prophets”.

2. Prophetic words calling for repentance and renouncing of specific sin is labeled as “judgmental and critical”.

3. If the prophetic words are not positive and encouraging, the prophet is labeled as “operating under the Old Covenant”.

4. Prophets who cry out for holiness and consecration and live a lifestyle of prayer and fasting are labeled “legalistic and harsh”.

5. Prophets who call out and expose false prophets and unbiblical practices are labeled “self-righteous, prideful, and rebellious”.

As we look at the life and ministry of Jesus and examine the New Testament, we see that correction, rebuke, uprooting, tearing down, and discipline are a part of prophetic ministry. Yes, building, planting, and encouraging are all a part of prophetic ministry but we must have balance! The same call that God gave Jeremiah in chapter 1 to tear down, uproot, overthrow, and destroy under the Old Covenant still holds weight under the New Covenant as demonstrated by Jesus Christ.”

Elite Girls School in New York Now Admitting Transgender Students

Posted: 20 Jun 2018 06:38 AM PDT

Elite Girls School in New York Now Admitting Transgender StudentsThe Brearley School, a nearly $50,000 a year prestigious private girls’ school on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in New York, announced Monday that every applicant who considers themselves female are now welcome to apply and current students who no longer identify as female will be allowed to remain. The school insists in a statement on gender diversity that it will remain a school for girls.

“We recognize that the changing gender landscape poses questions faced by all girls’ schools. Brearley reaffirms its mission as a leader in girls’ education, and going forward will consider all applicants who identify as girls. In the instance that a current Brearley student no longer identifies as a girl, the school is committed to supporting the child and the family as appropriate to navigate the challenges inherent in being a transgender student in a girls’ school,” the school, founded in 1884, said.

‘Fight the Snakes That Are Coming Against You’

Posted: 20 Jun 2018 06:29 AM PDT

‘Fight the Snakes That Are Coming Against You’(By Joe Joe Dawson) Just a few nights ago, I got in late from the Appeal to Heaven Conference, and it was so powerful. I had just gotten home and was getting ready to go to sleep. I fell asleep around 1:00 a.m. and had a prophetic dream. I woke up around 5:00 a.m. from the dream. This was one of the clearest and most vivid prophetic dreams the Lord has ever given me. In the dream, I walked into a house. Right when I walked in, on the living room floor, there was a very small black snake. I walked over, stepped on his head and kicked him out of the house.

In dreams, small snakes normally represent deceitfulness or poverty. They can mean a few different things, but it was just a small snake. After this, in the dream, I got in my car and started driving down the road. As I was driving, there were just a few snakes in the middle of the road, and I just drove over them. As I kept driving, more and more snakes were on the road. There were so many snakes at one point that I became fearful in the dream. Instead of driving over all of them, I drove around some of them and just let them be. READ MORE

Canadian Judge Recognizes Two Men in Polyamorous Relationship With Woman as Parents of Child

Posted: 20 Jun 2018 06:23 AM PDT

Canadian Judge Recognizes Two Men in Polyamorous Relationship With Woman as Parents of ChildA Canadian judge has ruled that two men who are involved in a polyamorous relationship with a woman who gave birth last year should both be recognized as the child’s parents on his birth certificate. “Society is continuously changing and family structures are changing along with it,” wrote Justice Robert Fowler of the Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court’s family division. “This must be recognized as a

reality and not as a detriment to the best interests of the child.” He said that it would not be in the child’s best interests to deny parental recognition to both men, stating that when lawmakers passed the Children’s Law Act of 1997, which only allows two parents to be named on a birth certificate, they didn’t take into consideration the “now complex family relationships that are common and accepted in our society.” READ MORE

13 Traits of ‘Orphan Spirit’ Leaders

Posted: 19 Jun 2018 07:30 PM PDT

13 Traits of ‘Orphan Spirit’ Leaders(By Joseph Mattera) One of the greatest needs in the Body of Christ is to release the spirit of sonship (Read Romans 8:15). Since both the nation of Israel and the church were modeled after the biblical family structure its leaders were supposed to function more as spiritual parents than corporate executives. The apostle Paul said that we only have few fathers even though we have numerous teachers (1 Corinthians 4) those who have not

been properly “fathered” in the natural can tend to walk with an “orphan spirit”. Unfortunately, many leaders in the church and marketplace still function emotionally with an orphan spirit even though they have been adopted as sons into the family of Father/God. Leaders with orphan spirits are limited in their capacity to make disciples and maximize their Kingdom purpose. I write this article to shed light on this vital subject so leaders can become more self-aware, and go to the Lord and others to be healed. CONTINUE

How Followers of the False Messiah Have Hijacked These Important Spiritual Times

Posted: 19 Jun 2018 06:49 PM PDT

How Followers of the False Messiah Have Hijacked These Important Spiritual Times(By Ron Allen) This week, on June 21, the summer begins on the summer solstice. Astronomically, the summer solstice is the day when the sun reaches its highest point in the sky over the northern hemisphere. It is also the longest day of the year. The opposite solstice, the winter solstice, is the day when the sun is lowest in the heavens and the night is longest. The other seasonal markers, the spring and fall equinoxes occur when the sun is at midpoint and day and night are of equal length.

These important calendar dates are important in God’s religious calendar. The first three Hebrew feasts, pointing to Christ’s death and resurrection, occur near the spring equinox; while the last three feasts, picturing the second coming of Christ, occur near the fall equinox. The spring and winter are associated with the appearance of Christ in Hosea 6:3, and the story of Christ’s Advent begins with the conception of John the Baptist, which is believed to have occurred near the winter solstice in 7 B.C. Summer is associated with the second coming of Christ, as we are told that the summer is near when the fig tree (Israel) comes to life. (Matt. 24:32).

Loud unknown sound frightens animals and people in ChileApocalyptic fears were sparked among people in Chile as a strange trumpet-like noise was heard for two minutes, frightening animals and people. Dogs were barking in fear and the atmosphere was eerie, as the loud, unknown sound went on during the night.

However, some social media users were not so convinced that the sounds were from the heavens, suggesting rather that the noise could have come from a steel industry somewhere nearby. “Honestly this sounds like a shipyard, construction or mining sounds,” one user wrote. Another added: “Could be a train car with faulty brakes.”  READ MORE

Privacy Concerns, Fake News Cause Social Media Users to Ditch AccountsPrivacy concerns and fake news are creating a lot of anxiety and confusion on the internet, and a new study shows some people are just ditching their social media accounts as a result.

Those two serious problems are the subject of major new studies.  As a serious
