Dear Elijah List, If You Don't Like My Comments, Quit Sending Me Your Emails!

American Christian, if you do not think you are going to be persecuted for your faith in the United States of America, think again. Listen to what Paul the apostle warned the Thessalonikan Christians:

"For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches (plural) of God, which in Judea are in Christ Jesus: for ye have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews . . . For verily when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know" (I Thessalonians 2:14; 3:4).

Many of the so-called apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers in the Church in America are lulling their congregations to sleep with promises of peace and safety, wealth and prosperity. However, if you read Paul's warnings, he prophesies of persecution to those who live Godly in Christ Jesus. If you choose to ignore the very plain word of God, you will not be able to stand in the day of your trouble! Paul was so concerned about the Thessalonikan Christians that he sent Timothy to check on them to see if they had stood the test. "For this cause, when I could no longer forbear, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter have tempted you, and our labor be in vain" (I Thessalonians 3:5).

All over the world, Christians are now dying for their faith. One well-known prophecy website, the Elijah List, says that (in spite of all the prophetic words that people have received over the years from their website) many of their readers are scared of what ISIS is doing to Christians in the Middle East. Of course, this prophecy website is using this as an excuse to solicit money so they can put encouraging words on their website from those who are the "real" prophets. I guess they don't want the prophets who are trying to warn people ahead of time that you are not going to be able to hide from persecution, even in the good, old US of A! Here is part of what the prophetic website email said (and by the way, this was the third email I received!):


There are some SHOCKING things happening that I want to just mention, but first THANK YOU for generously helping us get to this level. It’s what we’ve been praying for! Yes!

Now, because you answered our prayers with your giving, we’ve begun the search and interview process of hiring our 2nd Computer IT person. That has been what’s keeping us from posting fresh and encouraging prophetic videos.


Many of our readers are feeling frightened with WORLD NEWS lately. As I write this, it’s all over the news that ISIS continues to proudly put to death those who believe differently than they do. Most of those being murdered in cold blood by ISIS, are devoted CHRISTIANS. ISIS IS PURE EVIL! And yet God is even pulling some men and women out of ISIS and offering them SALVATION, just as the Lord did for the Apostle Paul. Listen, this is what the devil does! He goads people into committing evil and then his demons assigned TO YOU and ME start whispering in our ears that God has abandoned Christians, or "If God allowed those men to die, He’ll probably allow YOU to die too!" the demons whisper!

This is why our upcoming videos on our PROPHETIC.TV site of encouraging prophecies are SO CRUCIAL. Many in the Body are scared to death. ISIS is actually freaking many out! We need to encourage them. That’s what 1 Corinthians 14:1-4 is about... modern day prophesying is primarily to encourage and build up a discouraged BODY OF BELIEVERS (my emphasis)."

Do you mean to tell me that in all the years of this website's existence that they have not had enough encouraging, I Corinthian 14:1-4 - type, prophetic words for their many readers who now are "scared to death" and "actually freaking out" because of ISIS? Oh, I forgot, they need money! Do you mean to tell me that the Body of Christ or some of its members have ignored the Word of God and put more faith in personal prophecies that are not coming to pass? Apparently so. That is downright sickening! Read your Bible! Talk about real prophetic encouragement for the End Times!

Christians DO NOT NEED encouragement the likes of which this website is suggesting! They need the TRUTH, the WHOLE TRUTH, and NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH! This is the TRUTH: All that live Godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution, yes, even persecution from your own countrymen! What this website is posting is one of the grossest misuses of the gift of prophecy I have ever heard, and yet its request for money is endorsed by three nationally and internationally known prophets of our time. What a disgrace! Is there no judgment of this kind of fleecing the flock by God's prophets? Or are all of you going to remain silent? If so, Apostle or Prophet, you will answer to God! What kind of encouraging prophetic word are you planning on giving to those being martyred in the Middle East? Are you going to tell the martyred, "You know, I really thought I heard from the Lord that you were NOT going to be beheaded, that you and your family were NOT going to suffer persecution." What kind of prophetic, encouraging word are you going to give to those who have been left behind to fend for themselves? What a joke!

Christian, if you are not getting the whole Word of God from your church, you better go somewhere where the whole counsel of God is being preached, including Paul's warnings about persecution. Don't let these so-called prophets and apostles put you to sleep. They are exactly what the Bible warns about, pillow prophets who are nothing but a bunch of money-grubbing "Christians" who better repent! The days of their nonsense-prophesying are coming to an end. The spirit of Phineas is rising in the land and will put to death the Balaams who are only wanting to rake in the gold, while telling you things you want to hear, things you might hope are true, but are not the Word of God.

Prophets and preachers told Christians in China and Rwanda that they would not have too suffer persecution, that God was going to keep them from any trouble. The result? When the persecution came, many Christians denied the faith and did not want to hear about God, Jesus, or the Bible. Is this what we are sowing here in the United States? Time will tell. Christian, you have a choice. Prepare yourself with the truth or carry around your wealth, health, and prosperity prophecy all the way to your persecution and execution. I am not saying God cannot deliver. If God delivers you, praise Him. If you are not delivered in the way you thought you would be, praise Him. The TRUTH of the matter is this, "All that live Godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution." For starters, why don't you see what happened to Peter, James, John, Paul, and Stephen.  They just might be able to give you the "present" truth you  need to hear today and in the days ahead!
