False Prophets 101 - Wolves in Sheeps Clothing

Since the Lord called me out of my regular life, to go on a journey for Him, to learn of Him, and to learn how to be close to Him and how to obey His Will for my life, I have believed and been deceived by several false prophecies. One of the main reasons I was deceived is because the people who made the false prophecies were (who I thought) high caliber believers filled with the Holy Spirit.

When I first started out on this journey back in 2008, the Lord told me to stock up on food. So I had my car filled with dried beans and coffee and little green propane bottles for cooking. But as the journey progressed, the Lord revealed that the food He was talking about, was not physical food, but spiritual. He wanted me to stock up on His Word in my mind so that I would be able to recognize if something was false. (This is what happened in my life. If the Lord has told you to stock up on physical food, by all means obey. I firmly believe that a person should have some extra food on hand for emergencies anyway - a prudent man prepares himself. Seek the Lord's will for yourself and your life.)

Many times in my life as a believer, the Lord has shown me the false (and I believed it) before He revealed that it was false and led me to the true doctrines. The bottom line is, it won't matter what doctrines we believe or not, but whether we obey what we do know. With the plethora of false doctrines out there it is very hard not to know what to do or what to believe. Especially as the prophecies get more and more outlandish.

I am not posting these things to bash anyone or to point any fingers. I highly respect my fellow believers who may have also been deceived like I was. Some of the things I will be posting about in the coming days, may be situations that you will recognize - but I will be talking about them for a reason and not to tear down brothers who may out of their own presumption or sometimes enthusiasm, have made false prophecies. One of the very first things Christ said when asked about the times to come was "Be not deceived."

I believe that each of us should seek the Lord for ourselves. To make sure that we are living our lives according to His will, and to seek the Truth from Him and not believe everything you read on the internet - including this website. Check things for yourself and with the Lord. Definately pray about these things. If you are not yet born again, or want to know more about Jesus, please email me at and I can direct you to some resources or may be able to help answer questions. It doesn't take a prophecy to know we are in dark days - just read the newspaper or watch the news. The whole world lies in the wicked one. Now is the time to make Jesus your savior and to seek the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.

There are some wonderful teachings that may help prepare you. Two from Zac Poonen are:

Intro to Prophecy
False Prophets And The Broad Way

There are more from Zac Poonen and prophecy here.

Ironically, as I was thinking about how I was going to address this issue Omega Ministries came out with some excellent teaching on the Sprit of Divination or Python that I definately recommend listening to:

Python part 1
Python part 2

More audio messages from Omega Ministry are here.

Dear Heavenly Father, please be with us as we walk by Your Spriit in this evil and preverse world. Please help us to discern between true prophecies and false ones so that we can know what Your Will is for our lives. In Jesus name. Amen.

I have no desire to learn powerchords or play nirvana songs! But my teacher josephkim is teaching these in lesson three here. I believe the Lord wants me to go ahead and learn them because it takes a LOT of stretching these stubby fingers of mine to make these chords. If I can make powerchords, making the G chord will be a piece of cake.

The Lord has also been showing me the many verses in His Word where musicians were playing as praise and worship. If I learn how to play the guitar, the Lord can fill me with His Spirit to write and play original worship songs. Also, it was interesting that David used music for spiritual warfare against the evil spirit within Saul. I believe it will be important in my life later on. In the meantime, powerchords it is.

The world is going crazy, and so are my imaginary internet friends. I would like to say more on the issue, but I have run out of time today. Tomorrow is very busy with house stuff, not sure when I can post again. Will try soon.

Pray to the Father for discernment, and repent of any sin you have in your life. Now is the time to get right with God.

A little acoustic guitar for Tuesday

Looking for His Appearing

There is some interesting studies from J. Preston Eby that I think you might like to take a look at. But before you do, pray to the Father that you can know what the Truth of His Word has to say, and not the traditions of men.


Happy President's Day!

Down Time

Some days, are just quiet.

Yesterday my mom and I, my two sisters and two nieces, went to the little cupcake shop for a bit of a girl's day out. It was fun and very yummy. Then we walked around some of the little vintage shops, just looking at stuff. It was a nice time to visit and very relaxing.

Today, seems very quiet. I practiced the guitar, (I know 4 chords now! Not that I know yet what to do with them. Also, I found out that you can hold the guitar on your left leg when playing the classical guitar instead of the right leg, so that your leg holds the guitar instead of your left hand, which was why I could not make the chords. Every time I successfully make a chord, I thank the Lord again. I was so sure it would be impossible for me.) took my walks, listened to Zac Poonen and spent some time in the Word.

I've been watching cooking shows on tv. Yes. I know that tv is evil, but I have been learning so much about herbs and spices and how to cook meat from Rachel Ray and OMG Jamie Oliver who is like a crazy super genius when it comes to cooking. My mom and I have tried some of his recipes and did not know that food could taste so good! I think my learning how to cook, is also from the Lord. I mean, you guys don't know me. Everyone, including my kids and me, believed that I was incapable of cooking. (You know, except for tacos, spaghetti, and mac and cheese, but who can't cook those things!) I use to pray that my next husband was a chef, who was praying this very minute for a woman who loved washing the dishes. (seriously - I do love washing dishes, but don't ask me how I feel about cleaning the bathroom.)

They say that children grow physically, when they are asleep. Like I was telling you before about this house, I think the Lord works on us, when it is quiet and it does not seem like anything is happening in our lives.

Thank you so much, my wonderful heavenly Father. For the amazing peace and quiet I am feeling when the rest of the world is in such extreme chaos. Thank you for always loving me, always meeting every single need, so that I have want of nothing. Thank you for teaching me how to cook, how to play the guitar, how to have faith in You and trust you in everything, and how to be Your daughter. Thank you so much, in Jesus name. Amen.

God will be with thee

The first thing I read this morning was:
God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord.
It is the last half of the verse from I Chronicles 28:20. I am reading out of the King James version and the words "will be" are in italics so it seemed that much more emphasized. As I read further there was an amazing prayer from King David - a man who was faithful until the end of his life. An overcomer.
Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.

Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.

Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.

But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.

For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding.

O LORD our God, all this store that we have prepared to build thee an house for thine holy name cometh of thine hand, and is all thine own.

I know also, my God, that thou triest the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of mine heart I have willingly offered all these things: and now have I seen with joy thy people, which are present here, to offer willingly unto thee. 1 Chronicles 29: 11-17
Dear Heavenly Father, I can't say it better than that. Thank you for always being with me through thick and thin, good times and bad. Thank you for never failing me or forsaking me, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Thank the Lord for cookies...

Mom and I made cookies this morning for the realtor open house. I love baking and it was nice and relaxing and the cookies turned out great.

Thank you Lord for white chocolate chips. Thank you for brown sugar and dried cranberries and oatmeal. Thank you for the sweet things in life. In Jesus name. Amen.

House for Sale!

Here is the you-tube video the realtor did for our house. I think it turned out pretty good!

The C Chord

At first, when I started to learn the guitar, I had it on my list of things to do. Somehow, it ended up always getting done last, after the other chores were done. Of course, as the last thing on the list, sometimes it got too late in the evening or I was just too tired by that time to do it.

I was thinking about how I want to love the Lord with all my heart, soul, mind and strength, and that it is the Lord's will for me to learn the guitar. I thought, if I was in love with someone - and they wanted me to learn the guitar, would it be the last thing on the list? Would I whine and moan to them about how I was too tired and didn't feel like practicing? No! I would put it FIRST on the list and I would be happy and joyful about every hour spent practicing. In fact, I would want to be the very best musician I could be in order to make that person happy. I realized that I needed to be IN LOVE with the Lord and His will for me, and to be very joyful when I practiced the guitar.

So I started practicing the guitar, early in the day, when I could. I was using this you-tube video for my first lesson:

Learn How to Play Guitar Series Lesson 1

I really liked this video because he stressed starting with these exercises that would get you used to playing that I felt were important. So I decided that I would not move onto lesson two until I felt I fully understood and could play lesson one.

So towards the end of my practice time yesterday, I felt I was ready to move on to lesson 2:

Learn How To Play Guitar Series Lesson 2

So the first new thing the instructor teaches is how to do a C-chord. For 10 minutes I struggled to get my fingers to do the C-chord, but it appeared that my left ring finger is too short! I physically could not do the chord. Then my timer went off and I was glad to be done with the lesson. How can I possibly be a guitar player with the short stubby fingers I have?!

I told my mom and she thought that was so funny, but I started to cry. I can't do the C-chord. How can I learn the guitar if I can't make my fingers do the right thing.

So I sought the Lord about my short fingers. I told my mom, "nothing is impossible with the Lord, he can make my fingers grow." I was taking my walk and praying. The Lord showed me that my fingers are not too short, because little kids in 5th grade learn how to play the guitar. Their hands are much smaller than mine.

The Lord said, "you need to stretch past your comfort zone. The devil wants you to believe that you can't do it, but I tell you that you can."

So today I can do the C-chord, but I still need a lot of practice and need to hold my hand differently than I did before, when it was comfortable. But with practice, the C-chord will become comfortable.

I sometimes think that maybe I should be out witnessing or going on the mission field or doing some great big thing for the Lord. But I have come to realize, that is not God's will for me to be doing those things right now. If I was witnessing outside of God's will, I could knock on a million doors and no-one would be saved, because it would be what I think I should be doing and not what God wants me to be doing.

Some really good teachings on that sort of thing is:
Take That God!

I got a call from the woman who owns the motel down in Pacific City. When I didn't get that job a couple years ago, I cried for three days! But the Lord also showed me later that that woman would have been horrible to work for. I told my dad that she called, and what I remember that the Lord had shown me about her. I told my dad that I know for a fact, that it is God's will that I am here helping you guys sell this house. My dad said, "yes! we were just reiterating to some friends at church that we could not have done this without you." I said, that the Lord has made sure that it will at least be a couple more months since my van is broke down. Dad said that he hopes that I will live with them until I get married, and that who knows? Maybe I will meet my husband in King City when they move there. I said, "I have thought of that!"

We shall see. The Lord's will be done.

Dear Heavenly Father. You are so amazing and wonderful and I love you so much. Help me do a C-chord and the rest of the chords and to play for you. Thank you for the new barber shop in the family and for how you always take such sweet care of me. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Mighty God

My new brother-in-law has just been able to buy his own barber shop as an answer to prayer. The old owner is selling for only $5000 (including vintage barber chairs and a real barber pole and an established clientelle) and will take payments. My brother in law is a fairly new Christian and has not seen the Lord move in such a way before.

I told him, "That is the Lord. He wants you to understand how BIG He is. It's a miracle!" My brother in law agreed. He is still amazed at how the whole deal has worked out and he will be cutting hair in his very own shop on Tuesday! Praise the Lord!

I also read a great blog today from Jasmine at Far Above Rubies, that I highly recommend:

Job's wife

Dear Heavenly Father, you are so amazing and mighty and you care so much about the details of our lives. Thank you for the new barber shop and for Your wonderful grace and mercy. In Jesus name. Amen.

Open House!

The house is officially on the market! We had our first potential buyers come see the house yesterday and they only had good things to say! The Holy Spirit has been so obviously at work here. We called a landscaper and he came out on Tuesday. Wednesday morning the ground was completely frozen! So the only day the landscaper really could have come out was Tuesday and then our first walk-through was Wednesday and we just felt that it was a wonderful example of God's timing.

The rest is in the Lord's hands.

Thank you so much Father, for helping us get all this work done and for inspiring us with the staging of this house. Please help this house sell quickly, in the name of Jesus Christ. AMEN!

Faith that Overcomes

This is a great teaching on Overcoming from Zac Poonen. It was his word for the year 2009 but it is just as meaningful today and definately bears repeating.

more can be found here from Zac Poonen.

Yeah. So I'm standing in the checkout aisle and I see this magazine. It says "Imagine: Your Ideal Body, A Better Job, Extra Energy, More Love, Less Stress, a Better Outlook...The new You begins here."

Wow! So reading this magazine and using my imagination is going to make me into a brand new person! If you look closely you can even see magical ribbons swirling around Oprah's head. Hey! Are those birds? Cool. Just like a Disney film! that a spiders web? Where does that fit in?

The World (represented here by Oprah) says: use your imagination and you can change your life.

The Word of God says, Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. Also, it says that you cannot change your stature by thinking about it, so the ideal body idea is moot.

If you look closely at the left corner, the small print says, "Life your best life." Hhmmmm...where have I heard THAT before. The idea is if you life your best life NOW then the eternity in Hell, just won't seem so bad? Please.

What the world needs is Jesus Christ the Savior. Repent (change your mind) and believe on Jesus Christ and lead every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. Because using your imagination is NOT going to make any difference. Even if it seems like it is working, Satan is a MASTER at deception and he will make you believe that your fantasies are really changing things. Trust me, they are not, but they are cementing your fate - away from God.

Time IS running out. Seek the Lord while He may be found.

Echoes of Johnny

Every couple weeks, my sister drives down to the coast in order to pick up her daughter for the weekend. I usually go with her on the trip and it is a really wonderful time. My sister loves to hear me talk about God's word, and I usually share some of the things I have been learning.

Today, I was telling her again, how I did not believe my trip to Ontario last summer was an accident and that it was no accident that I met Johnny. When ever I see the time 10:05 I always pray for Johnny, and ask that the Lord please save him. I told her again how I believe that the Lord wanted me to meet Johnny because He wants me to pray for him. I said, "I think the Lord knows that Johnny and people like Johnny, they need our prayers most of all. Who will pray for Johnny if I'm not praying for him?"

There are no accidents.

As we were coming back we stopped at a little park so my niece could use the restroom. I was sitting alone in the car and turned on the radio. A man's voice started saying:

"His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.

He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity.

His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity.

He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor. - Psalms 10:5-8"

Those were the verses the Lord gave me about Johnny, that he was wicked. Yet, I feel it is also the Lord's will that I pray for Johnny, that Johnny really really needs my prayers.

Maybe you have a bad guy in your past, someone you think could never be saved? God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that they would repent and be saved. I was a bad guy in my past. Maybe some righteous person prayed hard for me to be saved. The Lord wakes me up at 3am sometimes to pray for strangers, and I pray in tongues for them. I feel strongly in my spirit, that it is the Lord's will for me to continue to pray for Johnny.

Please Lord, help Johnny. Save him, let him be born again and turn and be a righteous man. Help him Lord. In the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen.

Narrow Road Ahead

Yesterday before I went to bed, I sat and made a plan for today. Some things got neglected during the fast like my walks and learning the guitar. (I've also been really busy with working around here that I did not have time for some things and it was pretty cold for walking etc.) So I felt the need to turn over a new leaf, in a way. Not really a new leaf, more of a adding back in the old items that I felt were the Lord's will for me, like walking etc.

So I went for my morning walk this morning. I never take my camera with me, but I had no idea what I was going to blog on, and felt like maybe I would see something that would inspire me. Understatement, for sure.

This sign (above) is 100 yards from my parents house. It is on the route that I walk twice a day and I have passed it while on my walks and definately while driving, hundreds of times. Yet, today was the first time I have ever seen this sign.

Road Narrows. Yeah.

It's okay though. I'm ready. I'm not afraid of the road ahead, because I know that the Father will be with me every step of the way. He is the one that makes me able to walk with him on the narrow road.

Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Egypt and Tunisia where rioting and unrest is going on. Pray that you can know the Father's will for your life and the grace to accomplish it. If you are not yet born again, seek the Father and repent of your sins. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.

Dear Heavenly Father, without you I am nothing. You help me to stand and to walk on the narrow way. Thank you for your infinate mercy and grace in my life. Lord, help me to be bold to speak your word in my daily life and please help those in my family get saved. In Jesus name. Amen.
