The Lord has humbled me, showing me that the May 29, 2015, dream I had posted here was NOT from Him as I had claimed. He showed me that the evil one had actually intended it to frighten me. (It didn't, because I have renounced the spirit of fear in my life and securely placed that at Jesus' feet months ago, but that's not the point.)
I have repented of allowing myself to be deceived, of opening the doors that allowed a stronghold of evil, of presenting false teaching, of dragging God's name through the mud by associating Him with something from evil, and of resisting His loving correction for so long. I have also prayed that He remove the false teaching from your mind, yet allowing you to retain the truth of His scriptures quoted here, unsullied by my guilt.
Now I ask your forgiveness, if you read the original post (about a meteor shower striking a round, glass room) here. I sincerely and deeply apologize for posting something on this website, claiming that it was from God when in fact it was not.
The Good that God Brings Out of ItWith extreme gratefulness for God's word; the outpouring, correction, and guidance of His Holy Spirit; and His mercy, lovingkindness, patience, and forgiveness; I give all the glory, honor, and praise to the Lord God Most High!
In all the replays God directed through my mind after repentance, He has shown me the difference between His voice and the voice of one masquerading as God - and it is quite clear. (The masquerader distorts God's word.) Lord willing, I will not again be deceived in this way. Thanks be to God that He edifies us even as He corrects us! What a loving Father we have!
This also serves to bring home the importance of each of us learning the voice of God. We are His sheep, and we need to follow only Him out of the sheep pen. Gentle reader, earnestly pray that God teach you His voice now, and that you not be deceived as I was!
Last, never overlook your obligation to pray over everything you read. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you all error and falsehood, and to confirm when what you have read (or heard or watched or saw) is from God. You will be the one to benefit when you do this, and you will be not found guilty of passing along false teaching to others.
Scriptures1 John 1:9 (NIV): "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."
Proverbs 3:11-12 (NASB): "11 My son, do not reject the discipline of the LORD or loathe His reproof, 12 for whom the LORD loves He reproves, even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights."
John 10:1-18 (NIV), The Good Shepherd and His Sheep: "1 'Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the game, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. 2 The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger's voice.' 6 Jesus used this figure of speech, but the Pharisees did not understand what he was telling them.
"7 Therefore Jesus said again, 'Very truly I tell you I AM the gate for the sheep. 8 All who have come before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. 9 I AM the gate; whoever enters through Me will be saved. [or kept safe.] They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
"11 'I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. 13 The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.
"14 'I am the good shepherd; I know My sheep and My sheep know Me -- 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father -- and I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to My voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17 The reason My Father loves me is that I lay down my life -- only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from My Father.' "
Matthew 18:6-7 (NIV): "6 'If anyone causes one of these little ones -- those who believe in Me -- to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. 7 Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!' "
