Thus saith the Lord

Dreams from the LORD 2003-2006
6 May 2005

This morning I hitchhiked to Victor, Idaho and I had some good fellowship with Trent, who picked me up earlier this week. I have been reading John Bevere’s Thus Saith the LORD? It is a very good book. It is essential to know the difference between a real prophet and a false prophet. If a man speaks to you, either you have peace in your spirit or you do not. If a false prophet speaks to you, there will be no peace in your spirit and you will not be edified. And a false prophet bears rotten fruit. Look at a man’s life: if his life is a mess, then there is something wrong with the man.

Last night I was attacked by demons two different times while I was sleeping. I said, “Blood of Jesus” over and over till they left the room. I believe they attacked me because Trent and myself had a powerful prayer meeting last evening where we really stirred up a hornet’s nest. Praise the Lord! If Satan had any brains, he would not attack me like that. When I get attacked like I did last night, I know that I am destroying some satanic stronghold. I have come to destroy the works of the devil.

From John Bevere’s Thus Saith the LORD? Page 70-71: “’For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel: “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”’—Isaiah 30: 15.

“Scripture describes us as sheep who have wandered and strayed. Yet salvation is not found merely in returning but in the combination of returning and resting. This Hebrew word for saved is yasha. Essentially this word means ‘to remove or seek to remove someone from a burden, oppression, or danger.’

“One of Strong’s definitions of it is ‘to be safe.’ In this state of rest, or contentment we find safety from deception! Here we are not misled or led astray.”

Page 89: “Confusion is often the product of false words.”

Page 90: “The Hebrew word for divination is qecem. It means ‘an oracle,’ yet it is not from the Lord. Simply put, these prophets speak their own oracles as though they were God’s. Yet the words are not God’s but their own. This is another way of describing the imitation or counterfeit of the true prophetic word of the Lord.

“The divination defiled this couple and reduced them to a state of limbo or barren uselessness. Again, remember God’s warning: ‘Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you. They make you worthless; they speak a vision of their own heart, not from the mouth of the Lord.” (Jer. 23: 16).

Page 111: “Notice Jesus was described as one whose eyes are like a flame of fire (Revelation 2: 18-19). This denotes an intense ability to see through any darkness or outward veil to the very heart of the matter. If penned today, the verse might have compared His eyes to lasers. They pierce through the natural and obvious to expose the very root or motive. By all appearances, this church lacked nothing. Without discernment this body of believers would appear flawless, yet Jesus saw past the great works of the body and pointed out a very dangerous flaw.”

Page 119: “Whenever we assume a position of authority without God’s appointment we are exalting ourselves. This includes those who are called but have yet to be appointed. Persons who commission themselves will ultimately serve themselves since the grace of God is not on them for that position. They will develop self-serving methods and agendas.”

Page 123: “The Scriptures make it clear that Moses knew in his heart he was the deliverer God would use to break the bondage of Egypt from his brethren. But it was one thing to be called and another thing to be appointed.”

“’Whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.’ –Matthew 21: 44

“Jesus is the Stumbling Stone, and His breaking process could be compared to a trainer breaking a war-horse. A horse is not fit for battle until his will is broken. Though he may be stronger, swifter and more gifted than all those around him, he cannot serve until his will is broken. To be broken does not mean to be weakened. It means your will is completely submitted to the will of your Master. In the horse’s case, its master is the rider. If the horse is successfully broken and trained he can be trusted in war. In the heat of battle as arrows or bullets fly he will flinch. While axes, swords, and guns are raised in battle he will not deviate from his master’s desires. He will stay in firm submission to his Master, void of any attempt to protect or benefit himself.”

Page 125: “Our democratic society is a breeding ground for insubordination. Because of this we have lost sight of what it means to submit to authority. True submission never wavers. Yet today we only submit when we agree. If authority goes against our will or direction, we disobey or grudgingly go along with it until a better option presents itself. This makes us especially vulnerable to deception and the counterfeit prophetic ministry.”

Page 129: “Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for so did their fathers to the false prophets” (Luke 6: 26).

Page 171: “It does not matter if this word comes from another or if we’ve heard it within our hearts, the witness of peace found through the Spirit of Christ is to be the umpire at all times. If we sense peace in our hearts it is the Holy Spirit’s confirmation of truth. If there is unrest or grieving in our hearts, it is not the Spirit of God who has spoken.”

Page 182: “’If you return, then I will bring you back; you shall stand before Me; if you take out the precious from the vile, you shall be as My mouth. Let them return to you, but you must not return to them’ –Jeremiah 15: 19. Emphasis added.”

“But you must not return to them.” Amen. John Bevere’s Thus Saith the Lord? is a great book. I know the Lord wanted me to read it. False prophets and false Christians have defiled me because their words were not of God. The Lord has showed me in my own experience that if I warn someone of sin in their life, and they don’t receive it, that I don’t have to go back and warn them again. Let God deal with them—let go and let God. Sometimes our most powerful sermon is our life separated from false believers. Birds of a feather flock together.
