Report From The Tower
This attitude, in a nutshell, is that how can anyone criticize Lakeland? What have you done? What great miracles have you done? Certainly, they conclude, that you and those who are with you have done nothing of any great weight that would in any way compare with the great and extravagant miracles happening there. So, how dare you criticize anything about it or find any fault at all with it?
I was talking with the Lord about it and about all the extravagant miracles that are being worked up there at Lakeland. Discerning by the eye, one would conclude that certainly a great one of God must be ministering there.
One of the "fruits" of Lakeland seems to be that some of those who soak there come away with this attitude of spiritual superiority and arrogance. They act as though they know everything, and they are not afraid to insult and mock the true servants of the Lord.
Last night, I watched Todd Bentley for about an hour, and he was urging people to stay in their local churches through the thick and thin and tough it out. Todd Bentley is definitely a friend of this existing church system and of the pastors. He is and has been supported by people who earn their livings from the existing organizational church and the media outlets that are connected to it. They rely on pulpits that are open to them. Pastors recommend their books to their congregations. It is all a business, and Todd Bentley is not rocking the boat in any way. He is trying to be very good for business.
After I got through pouring my heart out to the Lord tonight, the Lord said something that surprised me for just an instant. Then, I quickly understood it, and realized that it certainly must be true and that it must be the word of the Lord.
"THOSE WHO HAVE RECEIVED AND OBEYED MY COMMAND TO COME OUT OF THE HARLOT CHURCH, WHO HAVE LEARNED TO IDENTIFY THE HARLOT IN ALL OF HER INCARNATIONS AND WHO HAVE CLEANSED THEMSELVES FROM ALL OF HER SPIRITUAL DEFILEMENTS, ARE OF A HIGHER ORDER BEFORE ME THAN THOSE WHO HAVE REMAINED WITHIN THE HARLOT CHURCH SYSTEM.
THOSE WHO HAVE NOT CONFRONTED THE HARLOT CHURCH ABOUT THEIR FIRSTFRUIT TITHING PAYMENT REQUIREMENT TO THEIR SUPPOSED STOREHOUSES ARE STILL IN THE HARLOT CHURCH. THOSE WHO ARE URGING THE PEOPLE TO STAY IN THESE CHURCHES AND PAY THEIR TITHES ARE PART OF THE HARLOT SYSTEM. THOSE WHO ARE SILENT ABOUT CONFRONTING THE TITHING REQUIRMENT ARE STILL WITHIN THE HARLOT CHURCH SYSTEM.
THE LEAST OF THOSE WHO HAVE LEFT THE HARLOT CHURCH ARE GREATER THAN THE GREATEST OF THOSE WHO REMAIN WITHIN IT."
I thought about how the Lord had previously revealed to prophet Randy McKee that the tithing issue is a razor of the Lord. It is impossible to be in the middle on this issue. You will be on one side of it, or you will be on the other. And if you remain silent, you are still spiritually defiled, and part of the whore. If you are still in the harlot, and part of that system, you may raise the dead, and do all manner of extravagant miracles, but there are many other unknown, unheralded people who are greater in the eyes of the Lord than you are.
"Repent, and come out of her my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled, fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her." Revelation 18:4-8
