WACKY LEADERS

STOP CHASING THE SPECTACULAR & THE SENSATIONAL



Right now the unlearned and uniformed are making a mockery of us. I know

some of them are ignorant cessationists, but some make a clear point. A large segment of the body of Christ is wacky because they follow wacky leaders who have no business leading.


I don’t want to be mean-spirited or degrade anyone. That’s not my motive. I love the body of Christ. My motive is to alert the multitudes of growing followers of wacky unsound ministries to wake up. You’ve opened yourself up to deception by chasing after the spectular and the sensational. I don’t usually like name calling, but at times it is necessary. The apostle Paul did it when a certain leaven was spreading and bringing harm to the body of Christ.


“But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness. And their message will spread like cancer. Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort, who have strayed concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past; and they overthrow the faith of some.” (2 Tim. 2:16-18)


Stop following wacky and cult-like leaders such as Kat Kerr and Robin Bullock. Look them up yourself and let the anointing within you teach you why leaders like this are unqualified to lead and teach. Their messages spread like cancer and breed wackiness. This gives cause for much reproach from cessasionists and the unlearned, which in turn gives cause for the P/C movement to lose more of its impact…not to mention how the world deciphers all this wackiness. They want nothing to do with us. It makes our job harder.


Furthermore, don't listen to leaders who are always embellishing and exaggerating their points. They do so for basically one reason — to gain more followers. For instance, dreams are a ploy to accomplish this. I believe God gives dreams, but leaders will add to their dreams to make them more spectacular. There are a couple of young “prophets” that I know who do that and some do it a lot worse. Their ministry is built on sinking sand, and it won’t last. God can never bless lies. They are tares that God allows to grow to sift out the insincere and the proud. Some of these young “prophets” will be like shooting stars, here one day, and gone the next. Some will appear like greatness and then disappear from the scene and you won’t hear of them anymore. Actually, this would actually happen a lot more if true seasoned leaders and elders learned to judge sin and flaky doctrines coming forth from snakes and scoundrels — charlatans who believe all gain is godliness.


Much of social media is like that. Followers and subscribers is the name of the game. That’s why people can actually make a living on social media. It pays. This has opened the way for the true ministry, but also for much of the false. That is why it is so pertinent that believers cultivate a real communion with the true anointing that cannot lie, so they can have keen discernment and recognize the false and the counterfeit.

YOUR POSTS ARE TOO LONG


One time a friend told me that my posts are too long. I’m a writer and that’s what I do. I almost followed their advice because naturally, more people might read them if they were shorter. But somehow I felt a check in my spirit. My bottom line motive is not more followers for me, but disciples for Jesus.


Long posts have the tendency to sift the curiosity seekers, and fans, but draw in the hungry. What are you hungry for is the question. Many believers are hungry for the spectacular and sensational, or something that feeds their emotions only. Most have the attention of a house fly. There is so much of the sensational screaming at them from a thousand directions that they can’t stay with one worthy theme for more than a few seconds. They’re more soulish than spiritual. Jesus was constantly sifting these kind of people. He knew how to separate the fans from the true followers.


Bert Farias' books are forerunners to personal holiness, the move of God and the return of the Lord. They also combat the departure from the faith and the turning away from the truth we are seeing in our day. His recent five-book bundle, written under a fresh anointing, is a forerunner of what the Lord is doing in His church today.  His most read books are Cleansing The Temple and The Tumultuous 2020s and Beyond
