Assembly Discipline and "The Two Witnesses"
For the last two weeks, I have operated in such a way, behind the
scenes, to prevent a reoccurrence of what many of us have just
experienced at Watchman Seers USA Egroup.
I feel led today to tell the group what I have done, and also to
circulate a warning to the group.
First of all, about two weeks ago, I made the decision that new
members who are not known to me, Alex or Ron will be placed on
moderated mode. This was done at the specific prompting of the Lord.
I was told this morning that Dean Gibbons, member name "dwitness",
approached one member by private email in the last 5 days, claiming
to be one of the two witnesses and warning that unless he is
followed, terrible consequences will result. I have blocked Mr.
Gibbons' ability to post to the group. He remains a member if he
wishes to read only. He may not write.
James Welty, member names "squeakytoyz" and "slurpy", attacked Ron
Williams and me personally 10 days ago. I also blocked his ability
to post. He remains a member for read only purposes.
Vincent Berardi posted twice and his posts were caught and sent to me
by moderated mode. I rejected his posts, on the condition that I
would not accept any posts from him until he repented of his final
post to Watchman Seers, where he called curses down on several
people. Mr Berardi has chosen to unsubscribe.
Scott Hofstee, member name "daysofthunder", also claims, along with
his brother, Brett Hofstee, to be one of the two witnesses of
Revelation 11. I am not allowing his posts. He is still a member
for read only purposes.
Well, that is the summary of "assembly discipline" to date. As you
are aware, I cannot block any of these people from contacting any of
you by private email, but I am attempting to fulfill my
responsibility to sit at the gate of our assembly and make judgements
concerning what should be allowed into this forum. Please pray for
me that the Lord will continue to give me advance warnings of the
actions of those who would seek to destroy the unity that we have and
the love that we have for one another. Please pray that the Lord
will also give me heightened discernment to recognize false teaching
and doctrine when I see it.
As an aside, with respect to "the two witnesses", it is now obvious
that we have four men now, with affiliation to our group, who claim
these two spots. I personally know of two more who live in Jerusalem
who quietly make this claim. Dr. Bill Deagle of Colorado has
published that he "is one of the 24 elders" and has spoken verbally,
in my hearing, that he is one of the two witnesses. Therefore, it is
evident that at least 7 men I know of now claim these two positions.
As you can see, 5 must be deceived or imposters: only 2 of the 7
could possibly be the genuine article.
All group members are therefore warned that if any one of these men,
or others contact you, claiming to be one of the two witnesses of
Revelation 11, there is, at a minimum, a 71.4% chance that they are
either deceived or are an imposter. Therefore, beware!
I have previously written an article that is available on my website
on the two witnesses deception.
Who are the two witnesses? Are they on the earth right now? Maybe!
Have they begun their 42 months of prophesying yet? No! None of
those making the two witnesses claim are ministering in the requisite
POWER. The Lord will reveal them by POWER when it is time. None of
them are wearing sackcloth, (except an eighth one I did not mention,
who calls himself "Elijah", and is in Jerusalem right now).
Then, finally, the question becomes: what are we as Christians to do
when we are approached by these men? What will their role be prior
to the commencement of their 1260 days of prophesying? Well, the
scripture does not say they are prophets: it says they will
prophesy. (Oops, wrong, error here has been pointed out and so noted. They are prophets, according to Revelation 11:10. Please forgive my oversight.)
I'll give you my view: it's what I believe on the matter, and is
subject to change as the Lord gives me light. It is not provable by
bible doctrine, but it's what I believe in my spirit regarding the
matter. As Paul would say: this is not what the Lord says; it is
what Stephen says. I believe that any servant of the Lord is a
candidate to be one of these two witnesses. The Lord knows who they
are, but nobody else knows who they will be right now. My belief is
that anybody who thinks they are one of these two witnesses, ahead of
the 1260 days of prophesying, has been deceived. Since these two
witnesses will stand at the right and left of the Lord, according to
Zechariah, they apparently have what James and John sought through
their mother. The Lord simply told James and John that those seats
next to him were reserved for "others". It was a secret then, and it
is a secret now.
That's my current view. If I am wrong, I pray that the Lord will
correct me, as He has on so many other things.
Well, that's all for now. My blessings in Christ and prayers go up
to the Father on your behalf. You are a blessing to me.
