Dangers of Wrong Alignment

Dangers of Wrong Agreement with Q & A

We received an email asking if attending churches that were coming under correction would cause you to lose the anointing as well. My answer was simple: The Lord hasn’t told me directly, however His Word states:

If there come any to you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that bids him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. (2 John 1:10-11 AKJV)

If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine [is disloyal to what Jesus Christ taught], do not receive him [do not accept him, do not welcome or admit him] into [your] house or bid him Godspeed or give him any encouragement. (2 John 1:10-11 AMPC)

This seems to say that if we support those who are teaching and operating outside the ways of the Lord, then we become guilty by association. It was said about those looking to make a profit off the Gospel but not acknowledging that Jesus actually came in the flesh. I now have confirmation from the Lord that this will be applied to all those who have added to or warped what the Bible says. This is the warning given with the above scripture:

Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have worked, but that we receive a full reward. (2 John 1:7-8 AKJV) 

We must examine ourselves and not depend upon what man says, but what God says. By supporting those going in the wrong way, you may lose that which we have gained. What does it mean to support leaders that are not walking in God’s ways? What will the consequences look like? The Lord gave me a very clear picture of what is coming, beginning on the Feast of Trumpets, 2020.

Secret Place Visit

As I entered the Secret Place, my mind was upon what I had heard other ministers saying. I began growing really tall. The Lord shrank until I could barely see Him.

Immediately I remembered that I had watched a couple of videos from other ministries that had been sent to me over the last couple of days, though the Lord told me to remain focused on Him. I fell to my knees, crying out, “I confess I’m guilty for looking at what other leaders are doing, even though you told me not too. I repent and won’t do this anymore. I look to You, the Great Shepherd, and You alone!” 

The Lord began growing in size as I focused on Him. He became bigger and bigger until I was only up to His ankles. My cloak (mantle) extended to cover the sheep He brought to me and His mantle covered all those who were focused on Him. There were many leaders who were off in the darkness.

I asked Him what happened and He explained, “If you focus and look at what your hand or foot is doing (other ministries), you are not going to get very far. You will begin going in a way where I am not. Shepherds of My flock must stay focused on Me or they will wander off into darkness.” The Lord spoke with authority, “The wolves are let loose among the sheep for a short season. Those Leaders who are in the darkness will be harmed.”

I thought that perhaps this was a correction for the ministry so I inquired, “Does this mean we should not be teaching leaders? Should we remove the Leaders, Teachers, Intercessors course at the Academy?” 

He reminded me of when He had become small and I was large before answering, “When mankind repeatedly looks to mankind for what to do and where to go, then they are not able to clearly see Me or find Me any longer. They are only seeing mankind. I will bring those who need to reconnect with Me to Agape. Through the Academy they will see where they have gone astray. You will help lead them back to Me where they can once again see and receive from Me.”

“Lord, this sounds really great, especially for Agape… I don’t want to be led astray by a vain imagination, so can I have a scripture to go with this?”

Immediately I heard, “John 3:16.”

“Oh, that’s not fair!” I complained. “Many people have that scripture memorized, including me: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. I could have come up with that myself! Can I have a scripture that I don’t know?”

“Amos 3:10,” came directly into my mind. “I’m not sure Amos has a third chapter, much less ten verses...that will work. And you know what? I am going to look that up right now. If that doesn’t fit with what I’ve seen, I will be totally upset, knowing my imagination is vain!”

I pulled out my Bible and opened it up to Amos:

For they know not to do right, said the LORD, who store up violence and robbery in their palaces. (Amos 3:10 AKJV)

This confirmed that there are those following what they’ve been taught. They really don’t know that they are wrong. If we look to the next verse, it shows what will happen: 

Therefore thus said the Lord GOD; An adversary there shall be even round about the land; and he shall bring down your strength from you, and your palaces shall be spoiled. (Amos 3:11 AKJV)

The wolves will be let loose and what they have built will be destroyed. 

Meaning

Leaders who were depending on revelations and teachings of other ministers, who are connected to ministries not operating in God’s way “lose sight” of the Lord. They will not be able to receive from Him nor will they be able to reconnect with Him. They may need help to reconnect with the Lord. I was told to tell people about it before I left the Secret place because they will come under attack from the wolves (Satan and his army). Where is this in the Word of God: 

But I certify you, brothers, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. (Galatians 1:11-12 AKJV)

After we know God’s ways, when we begin to lead others, we need to receive revelation from the Lord, not relying on what man has said.

This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you from now on walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart…(Ephesians 4:17-18 AKJV)

Gentiles were those who didn’t know God. Many leading the body of Christ have been operating as the world does instead of what Jesus told us to do. This will cause their minds to be darkened, alienated from God. The continued walking in ignorance has blinded their hearts.

I sought the Lord in the Secret Place, asking about those who were associating with Ministries that were not able to see Him. 

Secret Place Visit

When the scene appeared before my closed eyes, it was like looking into a shattered mirror. Everything was a bit disconnected like fun house mirrors at odd angles. The Lord laughed with great merriment and began dancing with me.  Usually He is very responsive and supportive of my emotions in the Secret Place.

“Lord, how can you be so happy?” I asked, “I am glad to see you, but I’m not happy right now.”

“Should I not be happy to see my bride?” He asked.

I was insistent, “Yes, Lord, but I need to know what is going on.” 

He took my hand and led me through a door. It was so foggy that I could barely make out a table in the center of the room. “I can’t see anything…” I complained.

The Lord poured something over me and my vision cleared, not that it helped all that much. The table kind of looked like a city with buildings and streets. There was blackness on one edge that was spreading long tendrils of inky darkness into the circular map, one building at a time. I turned to the Lord, “I don’t understand… what are you showing me?”

“Wrong Alignment…” Was the only thing He said before I was removed from the Secret Place.

Meaning:

The Lord had clearly shown what people connected to wrongly aligned ministries would experience. When we connect with a ministry that is not aligned with God, then we begin to see the Lord as rejoicing, though we are troubled. We feel disconnected to Him, like He doesn’t understand what we are going through. 

  • We will not be able to see clearly, our vision will be foggy.
  • Even when we do see the attack of the enemy, we may not understand how it connects to us or what to do about it.

Here it is in scripture: 

But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (Matthew 15:9 AKJV)

Jesus said this to the pharisees who were not following God’s ways, but instead making excuses to get around it so they could gain more profit. He continued explaining: 

But He answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father has not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. (Matthew 15:13-14 AKJV)

When man goes in his own way, it will be “rooted up” or destroyed. This is what will happen to many ministries in the coming years. If you are being led by “blind” leaders who are not receiving from the Lord, then you will wind up in a ditch with them. This is the effect of connecting to a ministry that is not following the Lord as we discussed in a previous message. We then have a wrong alignment which will cause issues with our connection with Him.

Re-Aligning with God

Now that I knew how alignment would affect the Body of Christ, I took time to seek the Lord the next day to see if He had anything else to say. Much to my relief, the vision was “normal.” Jesus danced with me for a moment, then He took me by the hand, “I have something to show you…”

He guided me to a long deep hole in the ground and asked me to lay down in it. Using a shovel, He began shoveling dirt on top of me. I bolted up, sitting up in the hole, dirt sliding off me. “Do you confess that Jesus the Messiah has come in the flesh?” I demanded. 

The Lord’s back was to me and he began to morph into a monster, “Is this what you expected? Of course I confess that it is so, for it was Me! Now lay down and be still…”

It took self control to remain focused on Jesus while He continued to shovel dirt on top of me. Eventually, it was completely dark. The vision then switched to a third-person point of view: I saw myself laying buried under the earth. 

Like a time-lapse film, the flesh began decaying and falling off my body until there were only bones. The Lord reached down and pulled me out of the grave. My body shimmered and glittered like it was made out of gemstones. It was stunning and clothed in a sparkling gown.

“Lord, I’m not sure what this means…” the honest feelings blurted out, “Dirt is what our flesh was made out of. How can being buried in dirt make this happen? Wouldn’t that be buried in the flesh?”

His question was filled with kindness, “Where were you buried?”

“In Heaven?” I answered, still unsure of the meaning of this visit.

 The Lord explained, “Now is the time for My bride to be buried in the basic foundations, well grounded, in the ways of their homeland, Heaven. It will enable them to become my glorious bride and operate fully in God’s glory.”

“This sounds great Lord. Another way of dying to the flesh. But with as strange as this visit has been, could I have a scripture to go with it?” Recalling the last time I asked for a scripture I added, “One I don’t have memorized?” 

This wisdom descends not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. (James 3:15 AKJV)

This is being said because the body of Christ needed to be purified of sin, dying to the flesh. It can be seen because of what comes just before this: 

Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him show out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. (James 3:13-14 AKJV) 

“Good conversation” is what we are talking about, not only online, but in everyday life. Meekness is the opposite of pride. We must be willing to receive correction and wisdom from God as we die to what the “world” sees as right.

Meaning

God’s Word tells us:

But we are citizens of the state (commonwealth, homeland) which is in heaven… (Philippians 3:20 AMPC) 

When you move to a new country, you are expected to learn the ways of that country: what is legal, what is expected of you. We have come very far from what God expects of His children. He is pouring out His glory upon those fully committed to His ways. Even the most minor connection with those not devoted holy unto His ways will cause Him to withdraw from us. 

The Body of Christ will be experiencing a disconnection to the Holy Spirit beginning with the Feast of Trumpets, 2020. Leaders of ministries out of alignment with God may be removed or will stop receiving from Him. Those connected to these ministries will, likewise, stop receiving. The alignment to those ministries can be very slight: 

If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine [is disloyal to what Jesus Christ taught], do not receive him [do not accept him, do not welcome or admit him] into [your] house or bid him Godspeed or give him any encouragement. (2 John 1:10-11 AMPC) 

In the Amplified Version of the Bible we see more details about what the original words mean. The Lord spoke and told us to watch for a coming sign to confirm what was wrong in His church. We are not to welcome these ministries into our lives in any way, not even to say the common greeting on the street of that day, “Godspeed.” We cannot encourage them in ANY way.

Those who are part of the Agape Team are saying that they want to come up to a higher level to be able to operate in God’s glory to help others. The Bible tells us, “To whom much is given, much is required.” Here is the correction I gave to the Agape Team to remain rightly aligned to hear from the Holy Spirit: 

  1. Do not go back to old prophecies or words given to you from ministries not properly aligned with God.
    1. Both Sandra and Lydia have been urged by the Holy Spirit to burn or remove their “file” of prophecies given to them over the last 20-30 years.
    2. Some prophecies may have become idols in your life, even if they were from God. This may create issues as well.
    3. God will speak directly to you about this hour if you will remove what you are holding onto from the past.
  2. Sharing posts from preachers, worship ministers, ministries out of alignment.
    1. INVESTIGATE before you SHARE to see if the ministry or person is connected to any of the following:
      1. Selling Items
      2. Old Wineskin
      3. Unauthorized Authority
      4. Worshipers connected to the BIG ministries selling worship
    2. Do not LIKE or SHARE or COMMENT even on Team Members posts without seeing who the original contributor was.
      1. If they didn’t discern or look at it you will follow them into the ditch!
  3. Sharing posts that use humor to disguise a wrong spirit
    1. Using your birthday to prophecy through the Bible or Strong’s Concordance - this is divination
    2. Ascribing dollar amounts to “churchy” traits - this is mocking the things of God
    3. “Harmless games” on FB that offer to tell you your bible characteristics, which bible personality you are most like, which scripture is "yours" - “christian horoscopes” opening the door to deception and superstition. 

Let no corrupt speech proceed out of your mouth, but such as is good for edifying as the need may be, that it may give grace to them that hear. (Ephesians 4:29 AKJV)

 If you are guilty of wrong alignment, it is easy to fix (unless you are a leader).

  • confess - tell the Holy Spirit you are sorry for listening to your soul or for following those not rightly aligned with God
  • repent - remove any ties to those out of alignment
  • plead the blood - Jesus has paid the price for you to be free and redeemed!
  • break soul ties - if you were a “member” or received something from a ministry, sever all spiritual ties.

This will re-align you with the Lord. Be prepared to “die to the flesh” as never before. We need to be rooted and grounded in Heaven’s ways! The Bible tells us how to do this: 

But exhort one another daily, while it is called today; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. (Hebrews 3:13)

Brothers, if a man be overtaken in a fault, you which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering yourself, lest you also be tempted… (Galatians 6:1 AKJV)

It is not only the elders who should help us avoid “falling into a ditch.”  We need to learn how to encourage one another AND gently, meekly, point out when someone is going in a wrong direction. If someone gives a harsh, judgmental correction, that should be brought to the elders. This is what is expected of us. This is why we fellowship and assemble together. 

Iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. (Proverbs 27:17 AKJV) 

We must be willing to commune with one another and to be corrected as well as give gentle correction. After you complete the Courts of Heaven Academy, if you wish more fellowship, to be buried in the Kingdom of Heaven so that you can rise with the Lord in His glory, we hope you will consider joining our Team.

Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
  • Knowing what weapons are available 
  • Learning how to use those weapons 
  • Receiving orders and following them 
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father. 

The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.

Volume 1: Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Eager hearts cry out, hoping for a single word to confirm that He hears us. Yet, many times the only sound is silence. Over the years I have heard several reasons why God speaks to some and not to others. One night, as I tossed and turned, I brought each of these reasons before the Lord, stating why each of them did not line up with who I thought He was. 

Words rose from my soul, pleading for Him to reveal why He has remained silent when a single word from Him would mean so much to so many. For the next few hours, God used things I learned about years ago and things I had just discovered to show why He talks to some and why He doesn’t, and in demonstrative ways. 

In His grace, He also showed me how people could hear more from Him. Basic instructions on how to hear more from God and how to be led by Him are included in this book. Thank you for taking time to consider the answers I received and share with you now.

Keys to Authority for Every Believer

There is untapped power that is easy for every Christian to access in the form of authority. The keys to this authority will unlock weapons we can use to free ourselves from the attacks of the enemy. We must be intimately aware of the bounds and limitations of our weapon if they are to be used effectively. 

Find out about your authority:
  • Why you need it.
  • Where it comes from.
  • What you can do with it.
  • How to get more.
