WHITE WASHED TOMBS: A CANCER IN THE BODY OF CHRIST.

 .
 Praise the lord everybody!! God is great and greatly to be praised! I can't say enough about what God is doing right now in my life right now. Things that He had shown to me in a vision many tears ago are now being fulfilled. This is my season! and I'm glad about it! God has raised me up for such a time as this and what a time it is.

We live in a time where the leaders of the Church are trying to make their churches into a "cottage Industry," places of entertainment and family heirlooms to be passed down from generation to generation. The Churches are filled with false prophets that want big ministries and big titles. They see real men of God serving God in spirit and in truth with signs and wonders following their ministry and they want the same for their own ministries but they are unwilling to do the things those men of God had to do to get that anointing.

I recalled this scripture as God was dealing with me about these things. In Acts chapter 8 verses 9-21  9 But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:

10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.

11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.

12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.

13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.

14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:

15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:

16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)

17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.

18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,

19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.

20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.

21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.

Like Simon these false prophets see themselves as great men of God because they have hypnotized there flocks with the power of their oratory gifts and show business acumen. They try and rub elbows with real men of God so that they can appear to be on the same level and also somehow obtain the "secrete" to their signs and wonders. Try as they might they soon find out that God's anointing can not be obtained through deception or with currency, It must be earned.

Fasting, devotion to prayer and trials and tribulations for the Gospel are the currency needed to receive God's anointing and it's healing and yoke destroying power. You can sound good, look good and even smell good but without the authority giving power of God you are just a "sounding brass,"an empty shell. Jesus called these men "white washed tombs"in Matthew 23:27(NIV)    Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.

   The churches these men Pastor are full of the bones that come from a dead, dry church, killed by the false doctrine and twisted teachings and lifestyles brought forth by it's shepherd. These are the times we live in and God has raised up a remnant of Watchmen such as myself for such a time as this. We must all stand and be Watchmen in these last and evil days.

SERVING GOD YOUR BEST: NOT JUST MEATLOAF!!


Praise the Lord everybody! I pray everyone is enjoying Gods blessing so far this year. In a year when most of us have been striving to be more obedient and faithful to the Lord than ever before, how many of you like me have already began struggling to keep yourself on course? I've had a few ups and downs but I am not turning back. I have been called and this is my season. I'm breaking through the ceiling that has been over me keeping me down, I have totally surrendered to God's will for me. It is no longer I who live but it's God living through me.

The other day I was in my "closet" and the Holy Spirit brought this secular song back to my remembrance. I began to softly sing it to myself. It was by a singer I really liked when I was in the world, a singer known as "MeatLoaf" It went something Like this, "oh I would do anything for love, yes I would do anything for love: but I won't do that, no I won't do that!"

God began to deal with me about those words. It seems that a lot of us in the body of Christ give our lives to Christ and declare our love for him every Sunday but refuse to give up certain sinful behaviors that our flesh has become obsessed with. just like the rich young ruler in Matthew 19: 19-22. We say we love Jesus and would even die for Him, just as Peter said but like Peter we fold in the heat of the moment. when He asks us for the thing most dear to our flesh we sound like MeatLoaf singing, "I would do anything for love: but I won't do that!"

Jesus states in John 14:21,   21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

Jesus is saying those that have His word in their heart and are obedient to it are the ones who truly love Him and to them He will make himself known. I want God to be made manifest in my life, I want His power to be manifested in my life, Apart from Him I can do nothing. Whatever God has planned for me I know it requires my all, all my attention, all my love, all my strength and all my mind and soul.

We can't be like Meat Loaf when it comes to following Christ. Christ gave all for us, He was obedient unto death. What if He had said like MeatLoaf, "I won't do that!" We would still be in bondage to sin with no way out. We must be willing to give all just as Jesus did.

A CRY FROM THE WATCHTOWER!!!


Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!! From the days of Elijah till today the Kingdom of Heaven has been forcefully advancing and only the forceful lay hold to it. The barbarians are at the Gates and the Watchmen are crying out to the body of Christ here in America " WAKE UP! YOUR PERSECUTION DRAWS NIGH!!"
The Lord has put a word in my mouth, a hard word for His people.
I began this message in my last post "The New Babylonians" and like most of my post that God gives me for His people it was not very popular. At times I have been reluctant to write the things I must write but I am called to this Watchman ministry and write I must.
This message is for me and the other Watchman / Preachers out there speaking what doth sayeth the Lord. God gave me this scripture while meditating the other day. Ezekiel 3:4-9
4 And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.

5 For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of an hard language, but to the house of Israel;

6 Not to many people of a strange speech and of an hard language, whose words thou canst not understand. Surely, had I sent thee to them, they would have hearkened unto thee.

7 But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee; for they will not hearken unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.

8 Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy forehead strong against their foreheads.

9 As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.

God has set aside a remnant of strong, forceful men of God and He has put a word in our mouths and He has equipped us to deliver that word. Flint is a strong stone that when broken brings forth sharp edged pieces that man has used for centuries to make sharp edged tools and weapons. That is what this remnant of Godly men are, the are tools / weapons used by God to maintain and build His Kingdom. We don't have mega ministries or mega churches. We don't have many people we can call a friend but we Have God and His word and that is enough for us.

We weep over the condition of the Body of Christ and we agonize over our sins and the sins of the people. We are not better than but this is our calling. We are the tip of the spear, the sharp edge of the sword, and we must remain sharp at all times and ready to be used by God at all times. I'd like to leave with the following scripture.
 Matthew 11:12  12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

    God Bless you all, Brother Darrell, Speaking Off The Wall
