Every Pastor and leader that took this upon themselves to rule, and quite cruelly at times, over God's people at that time that I knew, have fell away from the Lord; That is how serious it has become; they are hard hearted and worldly, and some deny Christ or else have embraced humanism; but they have left Jesus as Lord for sure.
I submit these scriptures to you for consideration:
"But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also HATE.
"So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I HATE."
God HATES this doctrine of kingship over the church, the Nicolaitan doctrine as of the shepherding movement, as he hates the deeds of those who adhere to it.
People who do so are often unaware of the seriousness of their sin, and nonchalantly skip away leaving a body trail behind them. But, little do they know that God has hounded them, and unless they repent, they will die.
This fulfills this scripture also:
"But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. ...DIE!
Yes, even arrogant "Pastors." I submit a vision about how God feels about his little ones forced to live in the dung field.
God's heart for His babies, and disgust toward their enemies....[ so called Pastors..].
I awoke in a vision. I was in a room, similar to a basement, or dungeon. It had a hard floor, and higher ceilings. It had a stench to it, overpowering and pungent; it was the overpowering odor of human waste, thick, like a cloud.
Upon looking down on the floor, I beheld piles of dung, spotted like an overused pasture with multiple "cowpods", the difference here being they seemed fresh, and were human. It was nauseating and disgusting. I then began to "highstep" over them, and walked toward a clean area that I saw.
I approached a curtain on a rod, similar to a shower curtain. It was pearly white, and pleasant to see in that hole. I pulled the curtain back.I saw before me a glorious sight. A bubbling brook was cascading downward, flowing over a white marble or porcelain looking backdrop, like a Heavenly waterfall.
Its fragrance, too, was overpowering, but with myrrh and incense, like lanolin. The water was a true Crystal, brighter and more glistening than that I have seen or drunk. Its gurgling was symphonic and soothing.
I looked downward, and then I saw them. There, under the water, in the pool at it's base, much like every waterfall has, were two infant children submerged underneath. They were close to me, perhaps three feet away, under six inches of water or so. They were so beautiful, and they glowed, emitting health and joy. They both had blue eyes, and they liked me.
They smiled and grinned, the way babies do when they learn of love. They looked deep into me, and I could sense their affection, and their intense purity. As i beheld this holy scene, they were gone. I awoke from the vision....I awoke with emotions of grief, and sadness.
Though the Lord did not speak to me, I was given His heart, and burden. It had to do with the state of the church, and the "ministry" of men....more...
