Anemic: suffering from anemia. Lacking in color, spirit, or vitality (feeble, weak, pale, insipid, etc.)1
Malnutrition: lack of proper nutrition, caused by not having enough to eat, not eating enough of the right things, or being unable to use the food that one does eat.2
Throughout 2019, the Lord has been speaking to me about those that proclaim the gospel from pulpits and other platforms; “My shepherds have become complacent, lazy and too many simply go through the motions as part of their vocation – treating their appointed position as merely a ‘job.’” Repeatedly He has told me that His sheep are anemic and suffering from malnutrition.
Rather than fresh revelation from Holy Spirit, ecumenical leaders (Shepherds) are serving “warmed-up leftovers.” He sees many going through files and pulling out old sermons or “teachings”, putting in a few catchy lines, perhaps a picture or two, adding an illusory story and then audaciously serving these “warmed-up leftovers” as a fresh word to their flock. It’s the same with “prepackaged” sermons provided to pastors and teachers from denominational headquarters, biblical commentaries and other packaged sources.
“As those that have lost their first love (Revelation 2:4), I will vomit out these nauseating messages that are meant to appease, manipulate, control and fleece My sheep. Judgement is coming on blind shepherds that are clouds and wind without rain, hypocrites that are whitewashed on the outside but full of decaying bones on the inside. You seek the praise of men and chase after mammon while My sheep are weak, weary and thirst after the living water and restoration of My Spirit. Repent from the dereliction of your true call and I will restore your first love and My anointing will rest upon you again. Repent and turn from your wicked ways and feed My sheep that which will sustain and strengthen in this season. I desire mercy rather than judgment, lovingkindness rather than retribution yet My righteousness demands accountability and Justice. Repent, and be counted among the faithful of My Father’s House – judgment is at hand and there are many wolves among you, saith the Lord of Host.”
The Lord let me see gathering places filled with sheep having “itching ears” (2 Timothy 4:3) and a “hot tub” mentality that are satisfied with a quick twenty minute sermon, and then rush to get to the nearest restaurant and call it a great day – after all, they went to “Church”. In serving “warmed-up leftovers” and “prepackaged messages,” sheep are malnourished and sadly unprepared for the difficult days ahead. Both sheep and shepherds alike will be judged, and regrettably the delusions of the antichrist are drawing thousands into Wicca Witchcraft; who seek “power” and “signs and wonders” that rarely operate today in the assemblies of the ecumenical community. The study and worship of demons is rampant in the United States and across the world. Unlike previous generations, between video games and Hollywood, spiritual wickedness glamorizes villains, possessed individuals (Glass) casting spells, astral projection (soul travel), demonology, summoning angels, channeling (talking with the dead), Black Magick and the list goes on and on.
I will save for another time the prophetic words Holy Spirit has given me on the carnality and erroneous prophesies that are inundating many non-denominational Churches. Paul clarified this amazing gift and how prophets/prophetess are to operate (1 Corinthians 14) in home and/or church gathering today. The feel good “prophetic words” that please the flesh but does nothing for the spirit are loathsome and grieve Holy Spirit. Unvarnished prophetic truth from the Lord is intended for correction, instruction, guidance and confirmation – it is not intended to elevate the prophet or prophetess.
Lastly, the same holds true for some of the “worship” today. For too many it is nothing more than another form of entertainment and elevation of “individuals” that have the gift of true worship with instruments and anointed singing. Straying from the path of righteousness, many began in heartfelt worship but have fallen into the deception of the “praise of men” (Proverbs 27:21) and mammon rather than creating the fragrant atmosphere that invites the presence of our true King – Jesus Christ.
