True authentic apostles and prophets have been tasked with the responsibility of addressing crippling mindsets that serve to hinder and limit our personal and corporate growth and development. I am talking about deeply-held-to teachings and views that are contrary to what the Spirit is saying to the Ekklesia. Some of them have no biblical precedent, and others are based on the doctrines of devils and men. These mindsets, keep us detached from one another and displaced in the ongoing work of apostolic ministry. With the writing of this book, it is not my intention to accuse or indict anyone who is presently doing all they know to answer the call of Yahweh on their lives, and I am not against any legitimate work for the cause of Messiah. However, I am convinced that the time has come to challenge the top five paralyzing paradigms from a scriptural perspective, and that based on what the Spirit is saying to the Ekklesia. It is my sincere hope that those who read this book will prayerfully consider making a course correction, so that together we can become more biblically sound in our approach to the order and government of the Ekklesia and Kingdom on Earth as it is in Heaven.
It is not my intention to address every teaching with which I take issue. However, it is my intention to clearly state my position concerning one particular false teaching that has been reintroduced to the Ekklesia in recent years. It is primarily responsible for opening the door to further deception and delusion on our watch. The following doctrine has been re-labeled and packaged in a way that is currently spreading through Western Christendom like a virus. This doctrine continues to infect believers both young and old alike, and it is one of the most damnable heresies of our time. It has now fallen to me and others to begin to provide a clear path back to balanced truth. Now the Spirit clearly says that in the last times some will depart from the faith and pay attention to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their consciences seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods, which God has created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. For everything created by God is good, and not to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. 1 Timothy 4:1-5 MEV
This syllabus has been compiled with apostolic/prophetic people in mind. During this study we hope to clear up a few misconceptions and falsehoods about what it means to be truly apostolic and prophetic. It is our goal to candidly address the real issues that we continue to face concerning the absence of true prophetic/teachers, walking, and working in conjunction with true apostles and other foundational men and women. The first part of our study will cover ‘Understanding the Prophetic,’ and I will be sharing some of the insights and information that I have learned over the past five decades.
What does it mean to be prophetic?
Can one be a prophetic person without prophesying? Yes, or No?
Is there a difference between the spirit of prophecy and the gift of prophesying? Yes, or No?
Is there a difference between the gift of prophesying and the office of a prophet? Yes, or No?
Is there a difference between the function and operation of the older and newer covenant prophets? Yes, or No?
What is the function of the newer covenant prophets today?
What happens when apostles and prophets walk and work together in the Ekklesia and Kingdom?
This manual is a second edition of a book I wrote in the 90s, called ‘Spiritual Warfare.’ After consulting two brothers with whom I walk, we have decided that this generation has either forgotten or been denied the reality of a full comprehensive plan of salvation.
The reality is, divine healing, health and living have almost become a thing of the past and deliverance has been relegated to medical science and psychology. The full comprehensive plan of salvation includes both healing and deliverance and we will never be made whole without them.
With the reintroduction of this manual, it is our hope that we will empower those who will ultimately become the glory bringing hope to the next generation.
We invite you to revisit this course of study from a new perspective and receive the tools and equipment necessary to reach the people of this generation.
The truth is, an overwhelming number of people are lost and undone. They are desperately seeking for help. They are hoping to find a savior, redeemer and friend in us. Selah!
