Warning to the Prophet: Do Not Compromise

I know it's been a while since Prophetess Tonita shared this Word, but God has just been repeating it and rehearsing it in my Spirit ever since...

God has been dealing with me about people and their cunning deception. So many people are seeking a "Word", but they're really only running after the prophets of God, hoping they will speak cars and houses over them. Saints of God, that's just not God's focus right now. Yes, He wants His people to prosper, but what profits a man if he gains the world, but loses his soul? The Father is looking for holiness. Right now, in this season, God is concerned with the salvation of His people. He is looking for souls - He that winneth souls is wise.

The Father is tired, just as the Prophetess has spoken. God will do, as He has in the past. These are the days when even the very elect will be deceived. And God, himself, will send deception to the very prophets. Why don't we believe it. Would God really send a deceiving word to a prophet? Yes, just as he said in the Scripture shared by Prophetess Tonita.

Ezek 14:9 [The prophet has not been granted permission to give an answer to the hypocritical inquirer] but if the prophet does give the man the answer he desires [thus allowing himself to be a party to the inquirer's sin], I the Lord will see to it that the prophet is deceived in his answer, and I will stretch out My hand against him and will destroy him from the midst of My people Israel.

Now, I admit that I struggled with this. Then, the Lord took me to 2 Chronicles 18...

1NOW JEHOSHAPHAT had great riches and honor, but was allied [by marriage] with Ahab.

2After some years he went down to Ahab in Samaria. And Ahab killed sheep and oxen for him in abundance and for the people with him and persuaded him to go up with him against Ramoth-gilead.

3Ahab king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat king of Judah, Will you go with me to Ramoth-gilead? He answered, I am as you are, and my people as your people; we will be with you in the war.

4And Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, Inquire first, I pray you, for the word of the Lord today.

5So King [Ahab] of Israel gathered together the prophets, 400 men, and said to them, Shall we go to Ramoth-gilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And they said, Go up, for God will deliver it into the king's hand.

6But Jehoshaphat said, Is there not another prophet of the Lord here by whom we may inquire?

7King [Ahab] of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, There is another man, Micaiah son of Imla, by whom we may inquire of the Lord, but I hate him, for he never has prophesied good for me, but always evil. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so.

8And King [Ahab] of Israel called for one of his officers and said, Bring quickly Micaiah son of Imla.

9The king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah sat each on his throne, arrayed in their robes; they were sitting in an open place [at the threshing floor] at the entrance of the gate of Samaria; all the prophets were prophesying before them.

10And Zedekiah son of Chenaanah had made himself horns of iron, and said, Thus says the Lord: With these you shall push the Syrians until they are destroyed.

11All the prophets prophesied so, saying, Go up to Ramoth-gilead and prosper; the Lord will deliver it into the king's hand.

12The messenger who went to call Micaiah said to him, Behold, the words of the prophets foretell good to the king with one accord. So let your word be like one of them, and speak favorably.

13But Micaiah said, As the Lord lives, what my God says, that will I speak.

14And when he had come to the king, King [Ahab] said to him, Micaiah, shall we go to Ramoth-gilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And he said, Go up and prosper, and they shall be delivered into your hand.

15And the king said to him, How many times shall I warn you to tell nothing but the truth to me in the name of the Lord?

16Then Micaiah said, I did see all Israel scattered upon the mountains as sheep that have no shepherd, and the Lord said, These have no master. Let each return to his house in peace.

17And King [Ahab] of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell you that he would not prophesy good to me, but evil?

18[Micaiah] said, Therefore hear the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing at His right hand and His left.

19And the Lord said, Who shall entice Ahab king of Israel, that he may go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead? And one said this thing, and another that.

20Then there came a spirit and stood before the Lord and said, I will entice him. The Lord said to him, By what means?

21And he said, I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouths of all his prophets. And the Lord said, You shall entice him and also succeed. Go forth and do so.

22Now, you see, the Lord put a lying spirit in the mouths of your prophets; and the Lord has spoken evil concerning you.

23Then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah came near and smote Micaiah upon the cheek and said, Which way went the Spirit of the Lord from me to speak to you?

24And Micaiah said, Behold, you shall see on that day when you shall go into an inner chamber to hide yourself.

25Then King [Ahab] of Israel said, Take Micaiah back to Amon the governor of the city and to Joash the king's son,

26And say, Thus says the king: Put this fellow in prison and feed him with bread and water of affliction until I return in peace.

27Micaiah said, If you return at all in peace, the Lord has not spoken by me. And he [added], Hear it, you people, all of you!

28So Ahab king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah went up to Ramoth-gilead.

29And [Ahab] king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself and will go to the battle, but you put on your royal robes. So King Ahab of Israel disguised himself, and they went into the battle.

30Now Syria's king had commanded his chariot captains, Fight not with small or great, but only with the king of Israel.

31And when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat [of Judah], they said, It is the king of Israel. So they turned to fight against him, but Jehoshaphat cried out, and the Lord helped him; and God moved them to depart from him.

32For when the captains of the chariots saw that it was not the king of Israel, they turned back from pursuing him.

33A certain man drew his bow at a venture and smote King [Ahab] of Israel between the lower armor and the breastplate. So Ahab said to his chariot driver, Turn, carry me out of the battle, for I am wounded.

34And the battle increased that day; however, King [Ahab] of Israel propped himself up in his chariot opposite the Syrians until evening, and about sunset he died.

Ahhh! Look at God! The Word says He sent a lying spirit into the mouth of the prophets. Why? Because an ungodly man inquired about God's will with the wrong intentions! Bless God. Saints, we must get this!!! We are not to throw our pearls to swine. We are not to waste our ministry gifts on EVERYBODY. As Prophetess Patterson stated once before, it's not our duty to pray for everybody, prophesy to everybody or preach to everybody. If the person's desire is not to draw closer to the Father, why do we entertain them? Why are we concerned with telling them what they want to hear? They need to hear the truth. The truth is that destruction is coming. Holiness is right. Repentance is required. God is tired of their mess!

I bless God! This is so liberating for me. Ministry must be done according to God's agenda. Mechaiah knew God, and did not entertain sin nor sucumb to the pressures of the "crowd." He knew not only the voice, but the heart of God. My God! Now, this speaks to real RELATIONSHIP. I know the voice of many people, but when I know how they feel and think, that's indicative of relationship. God is asking, "Do you know my heart, or are you only able to recognized my voice?" Hallelujah! See, this is the key. If the prophets knew the heart of God, they wouldn't have been deceived by the spirit sent by God, even if it "sounded" just like Him. Glory to God! See, I know my Daddy's voice in the natural, but I also know his personality because I have a RELATIONSHIP with him. If he called and said something crazy and told me to do something outside of character, I would automatically know something was wrong, even though I recognize the voice. Relationship, Relationship, Relationship!!!!

The gifts are without repentance, but deception is in the camp. God's very elect are being deceived. Saints, we must get to know Him like never before. Even in ministry, we must be led by the Father rather than the thing that seems, looks or feels right. To God be the glory!

Original Message - by Prophetess Tonita Patterson

A Word of Warning About Compromising

This is not a time that we agree with SIN...Purification the Wind is BLOWING to clean the House...Do not try to please man... Kosomos (the world) do not want the TRUTH...It is offensive to them...Some of you are being tested WHO are you going to hold onto..MAN, their opinions their ways, their love...or to God His Word, His Move, His authority....

Ezek 14:7 For anyone of the house of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel who separates himself from Me, taking his idols into his heart and putting the stumbling block of his iniquity {and} guilt before his face, and [yet] comes to the prophet to inquire for himself of Me, I the Lord will answer him Myself!

Oh I have a WARNING to the PROPHETIC Ministries...Many have turned they back on God and they are seeking you to pacifier....there sins....Many do not want their stuff exposed...The Church is holding on to their gods and do not want to let go of them...When the WINDS (the blowing of the shofars) blow You have two choices to get anchored or blow away...Do not let them come with their woo is me stories and conjure up a WORD to make them feel good!!!

Ezek 14:8 And I will set My face against that [false worshiper] and will make him a sign and a byword, and I will cut him off from the midst of My people; and you shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord.

God is not doing this thing in the dark...Exposure is coming to the light...Cutting off from His presence will be VISIBLE and OPEN...He does this because He have to show that He is LORD!!! There is a way that seems right to a man the end of there is death...Be silent and kill people...Speak only that what God is saying do not tickle the flesh....

Ezek 14:9 [The prophet has not been granted permission to give an answer to the hypocritical inquirer] but if the prophet does give the man the answer he desires [thus allowing himself to be a party to the inquirer's sin], I the Lord will see to it that the prophet is deceived in his answer, and I will stretch out My hand against him and will destroy him from the midst of My people Israel.

There are some that are trying to get as many people as possible to agree to their sins....If they get some one to say that was not God that rebuke them then their ego and pride grows the more...They want someone to say God is graceful and He will bless you with in your mess...Do not agree to sin...You can not pray some one out of sin..The Word must be given....

Ezek 14:10 And they both shall bear the punishment of their iniquity: the iniquity of the [presumptuous] prophet shall be the same as the iniquity of the [hypocritical] inquirer,

Ezek 14:11 That the house of Israel may go no more astray from Me, neither defile themselves any more with all their transgressions, but that they may be My people, and I may be their God, says the Lord God.

All of this happens Because God wants HIS house to not stray any more..OH GLORY!!!! What ever it takes to keep me in YOUR PRESENCE in Your House Lord...Do not take your presence away from me....
