I was reading in the word last night, led of the Lord to look at Jeremiah 19. As I read, the
word in verse 6. SLAUGHTER! The Lord was repeating what he spoke to me a couple of
days ago. Also, bringing again the word that was given through Bill Burns, concerning the
I was filled with a very real terror, because I know that when the Lord speaks something twice
to me, it means, biblically, that the matter is established by God and will definitely occur.
To review in brief, Bill Burns has prophesied that God is raising up prophets who will stand
by the side of the true Apostles. These prophets will be as Nathan and the Sons of Zadok were to David.
They will be loyal and they will discern the pure from the vile. There will be a CARNAGE
as the false apostles tear the flock.
to read the whole word from Bill Burns on the CARNAGE to come, along with my first word
from the Lord relating to the PLACE OF SLAUGHTER.
This morning, I was still troubled by the word, so I inquired of the Lord. He answered me
from Acts 20:29:
"For I know this, that after my (Paul's) departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you,
not sparing the flock."
I thought about how God has, from this time, characterized these men as being wolves. Truly,
if wolves do not spare the flock, there will be a carnage. Indeed, wolves eat their food by
tearing live prey limb from limb. Try to gather in the visual image of the flock being torn
apart by these human wolves in sheeps clothing. It is a frightening thought and it fills me with
terror. Yet I know many of these hirelings. They are only concerned with their own reputations,
their salary and benefits packages. If a better deal arises, they simply take another job
in a lateral move that mimics corporate America and it's transfers of executive talent.
So now, we are going to have a slaughter and a carnage as God brings forth the true apostles
and causes prophets like me to stand with them. It will apparently not be easy to stand, but
stand we must for righteousness. The false apostles will have their own army of false prophets
standing by them. This is going to get very ugly. Civil war in the house of the Lord.
As I pondered and prayed about these things, the Lord spoke to me concerning Ezekiel 34.
I turned there to read it, but for some reason, I was feeling led to read it in my NIV. As I
read, the Lord spoke to me.
Right now, he wants me to speak to the pastors who are not hirelings, and also to the
two apostles I walk with. Also, I'm speaking to those pastors in the egroups who have ears
The exhortation to you pastors is that you are to acquit yourself
with respect to any guilt under Ezekiel 34. Search that scripture and see what Jesus is going
to do for the lost sheep. You should try to do that with his help: right now!. Go through the
people who have left your churches through the years. Many people are lost, without shepherds,
for many years. Many people are in churches right now, but they have no true shepherd.
Pastors, as you contact them by phone or by mail, let them know that you care from them
and still pray for them. Welcome them back and encourage them to return if they have no
shepherd over their lives, for they will need a true shepherd over their lives now more than
ever. Discern as you contact them. Some you will not be led to contact, for some of them
God removed from your midst as a doctor cuts out a cancerous growth. Utilize great
discernment as you make these contacts.
You will not see much initial response to your efforts. When the carnage comes,
however, and the Lord is raising up the pure and the vile are being taken down, the flock
will be torn and people will remember that yes, they do know where they can find a real
Yes, you will be regarded and accused of being a sheep stealer by those hirelings. But
listen here to the convicting words of the Lord:
"For I myself will search for my sheep and look after them. As a shepherd looks after his
scattered flock when he is with them so will I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from
all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness....I will search for
the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak, but
the sleek and the strong I will destroy. I will shepherd the flock with justice....I will judge
between one sheep and another, and between rams and goats." From Ezekiel 34 NIV.
