Just because I am at an event does not mean I endorse everything about that event.
Someone criticized me for not believing the prophet who tells children that there are tame T-Rexes in heaven that they can ride, as well as candy stores and mountains of Jello. Apparently, that person thought I was not supporting the “prophets.”
Later that same day, another person attacked me for appearing on a stage with some leaders who they consider to be “false prophets.” So, in their eyes, I was guilty of supporting these prophets. Do you see how that works?
No matter what I do, it will offend someone. The truth is, I neither support false prophets, nor reject true prophets. I simply go and preach when and where the Holy Spirit leads me.
This story from the Bible shows my point.
In Second Kings, the wicked king of Israel, Jehoram son of Ahab, went to war against Moab. He asked the righteous king of Judah, Jehoshaphat, to come with him. I suspect it was because of family ties that Jehoshaphat compromised. When they ran out of water and were in danger of dying of thirst, they called for a prophet.
That prophet, Elisha, was not happy that Jehoshaphat was allied with Jehoram, but Elisha agreed to prophesy the word of the Lord to help them. In 2 Kings 3:14-15, Elisha spoke to Jehoram, saying, “As the Lord of hosts lives, before whom I stand, surely were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you, nor see you. But now bring me a musician.”
Sometimes, when you see me at an event, you might wonder if I am compromising. No way! There are people there I regard, so I will speak. I will speak for the sake of an audience that otherwise might only get false teaching. It is not that I am endorsing the questionable people on stage.
Just as Elisha would never have prophesied if the king he regarded, Jehoshaphat, was not there. Likewise, I will not go to any Christian event unless there is someone there that I truly believe in and support―even if there are some questionable characters in the mix.
What I preach is what you should be checking.
The next time you see me at one of these events, do me a favor and take the time to hear what I say in that event. And if you see me on a stage with people you deem false, listen to my appeal to truth and to the audience.
If I disagree with your favorite “prophet,” listen to what I am saying, in context, from the Bible. You should never defend any prophet’s experience above the Word of God.
Yes, the Bible tells us to shun heretics. Titus 3:10 says, “Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them.” But it also says, “If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men” (Romans 12:18).
Most of my time is spent in a tent, winning lost souls. But I am sometimes led to various camps within the Body of Christ, because we must learn to talk to each other. My goal is to reach out to the entire church, to speak truth to them. We need to try to change the minds of ‘woke’ Christians who support the destruction of America. If we do not, then our nation is lost.
