Azusa Now 2016 was an auspicious event that not only included an unholy covenant between Charismania and Catholicism, but also a hardening of the hearts of many lemmings who are convinced that their experience outweighs and outranks the Word of their Creator.
Welcome to the Age of Militant Experientialism.
When I was involved in the prophetic movement, I heard the following phrase quite frequently:
“A man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument.”
This mantra sounded so good at the time. It was like an extended middle finger to the religious establishment who would dare to shackle us with their old mindsets, stale values and failed dogmas.
But the adoption of this phrase had (perhaps unintended) consequences. Not only did it greatly assist in the creation of a rigid, rebellious mindset that is still growing and thriving in both the prophetic movement and the church as a whole, but it galvanized the self-assured masses against any scriptural rebuttal. Now, they can worship a “messiah” of their own creation, free of any biblical guidelines.
After all, in their view, nothing can challenge what they have experienced… not even the Word of God.
People do not like their experiences messed with
A couple of weeks ago, I released a post entitled “Azusa Now 2016 – Drawing You Into the Great Delusion” which set off a minor firestorm in my email inbox, Facebook page and comments. I honestly wasn’t prepared for all of the negative feedback. From the venomous language being used, you would think that I had slapped someone’s grandma or stomped on the American flag! Because of this, only a few of the negative comments were actually published.
But I think the Father used this to show me a few things.
- Duh, Kevin… when you brandish the Sword, prepare for war!
- People are still clinging tenaciously to their experiences, regardless of what the Word of the Living God says. Because of this, these alleged “revivals” are defended with a militancy that cannot be reasoned with unless all parties adopt the Word of God as their standard.
- People still do not have a scriptural foundation for discerning false prophets or false “leaders.” If an alleged prophet/leader promotes ideals that agree with modern-day “church” values & principles (no matter how errant), then they are automatically granted “carte blanche” and accepted into the fold.
Dusting Off Some Tried and True Posts
These two factors, along with a large amount of prayer and a reasonable amount of fasting, has led me to the decision to re-release my testimony, “Working for the Elijah List,” along with the post series (now a book) “Prophetic Masquerade: Learn to use the Word of God to Unmask the Wolves among the Sheep!”
For those of you who have been with HonorOfKings.org for awhile and have already read these posts, I would ask you to bear with me while I bring my newer subscribers up-to-speed. This list has doubled since I released the “Ten Distinguishing Marks of a False Prophet” series (now “Prophetic Masquerade”) in 2014, and has more than quadrupled since I released my testimony in 2011. So there are many readers who have yet to be exposed to some of my more foundational writings. They need this perspective and teaching from the Word before I can release my newer material… and believe me, I have plenty of new material!
Even if you have read my testimony and “Prophetic Masquerade,” I encourage you to take a second glance. The original posts have been edited, enhanced and, in some places, furnished with completely new content. I think it would be worth your time to check it out. Additionally, the Father has blessed me with a phenomenal editor who has been helping me keep my spelling and grammar straight, so hopefully this teaching will read smoother for you.
“Prophetic Masquerade” is now available in book form
One thing that I will always do is have my content for free on this site. But there are many out there who would prefer to read an actual, physical, book so I want to make this book available to them. As I release “Prophetic Masquerade: Learn to use the Word of God to Unmask the Wolves among the Sheep!” for free online, there will also be a hard copy book available for $12.99 (free shipping in the USA). I also have it available as a Kindle download ($5.00) for those who like to read on their Kindles.
Of course, it would be great if you would like to bless HonorOfKings.org and buy a book, but this has always been about getting the message out, not making loads of cash. So, if you can’t afford it, or if you just have a “thing” about money and ministry, stay tuned and be blessed as you read it all here freely!
A Challenge to Those of You Who Believe in This Message
The Azusa Now 2016 gathering is only the start of the deception that is coming down the pike. Things are going to get deeper, darker and more insidious as we reach the end of the age. Those who are falling off the cliff with the other lemmings NEED to hear this message.
But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: and others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
I want to challenge you to share this email with 5 people who may (or may not) be ripe to hear it. Perhaps you know someone who is falling head-over-heels in love with Pope Francis and his message. Maybe you have children who are involved in the prophetic movement, but still have a small amount of reverence for the Word of God. Hey, maybe you know an Elijah List “prophet” who will actually read this?
Help get this message out and “pull them out of the fire”!
For the Truth,
