Well, my dear Heartdwellers. Because certain souls have been scandalized, I've been asked to address this accusation that I'm committing blasphemy.
Unfortunately, people hear ugly things being said about me and they don't always take the time to find out whether or not it's true. There are many, many misrepresentations and distortions, taken out of context, so called "quotes" of what I supposedly said or taught, that are absolutely untrue. Please don't be gullible. Be smarter than your opponent, the Father of Lies, who hates the idea of you being close to Jesus in a real relationship. That is the most threatening thing in the world to him. Because if you're in a REAL relationship with the Lord Jesus, you're going to hear from Him. You're going to obey Him. And you are a threat to the kingdom of darkness.
So, before you swallow these lies, I invite you to use our search engine on the teachings the Lord has given us on this channel. Just type in the word you are questioning and then read the PDF and see what I really said - and if what I am being accused of is true or a lie.
If someone has told you different...such as "she shared her bed with Him" - that is totally distorted. How many times have you fallen asleep, knowing that the Almighty was beside you, covering and comforting you? How many times have you been sick and felt that He was right there with you?
All of these filthy accusations are the product of a mind that is carnal and has no experience in Heaven or with Heavenly encounters with God. And I might add, has never bothered to listen to the teachings on this channel.
So, let's go back to the beginning of the public writings, where I describe encounters with Jesus in Heaven. That would be found in our first book, Chronicles of the Bride, available as a free download on our web site. The link is below this video, just click on 'show more.' It will open it.
This very special relationship with Jesus. It is portrayed in the book as a REAL relationship with the REAL, fully-God and fully-Man, Jesus. Because He came to Earth to reveal to us the true nature of God. We have many narratives of His love and interaction with His disciples and His followers. He came to me while I was in worship one day, and invited me into Heaven with Him. He showed me the natural wonders He created for me - and treated me like His dear friend and virgin FOREVER Bride. He took me swimming: He was fully clothed and so was I. We went flying, surfing, horseback riding... I mean, why do you think animals are in Heaven?? He returns on a horse; why shouldn't He go riding with us?
Then Holy Spirit made me aware that people's relationship with Jesus is stunted and artificial. We never "get it" that He is fully God and fully Man. We get the God concept, but totally ignore His human nature - the one that is personal and loves His Bride in total purity.
He set the stage for this by coming to Earth. For far too long, Jesus has been held at arms-length while we sit behind a desk, with the Bible opened to the Gospels, and keep our distance. This is the work of a Religious spirit trying to keep Jesus remote and untouchable.
Yet, Scripture says He ate with them. He slept, He cried, He perspired. And He died. He went fishing, He cooked, He washed. He thirsted, He got hungry. He sought privacy from the crowds. He was fully human with His disciples. Do you really think He sat across the desk from a Bible that wasn't even written when He interacted with His disciples - and sanctimoniously waited for them to address Him??? Do you really think He never touched and held the little children, or Mary and Martha grieving for their brother?
What kind of picture do we have of Him? Is He an animated statue that demands we prostrate ourselves and not come near Him? Or is He a man who lived a real life with His apostles and suffered the same things we all suffer as human beings?
So, what do we use as a reference point?? We use the Scriptures!
Did He grieve? Jesus wept. John 11:33
Did he feel the need to be comforted? "Were you not able to keep watch with Me for one hour?" Mark 11:37
Did He celebrate? On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. John 2:1-2 So, did He sit around with a dour face, while everyone else was dancing and enjoying themselves and feasting?
In John 21:9 when the apostles were fishing and not catching anything, the Lord was on the shore with a cooked meal. The Scripture says when they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there, with fish on it and some bread.
Did He feel grief when Peter denied Him three times? Of course He did! Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you." John 21
Did He get hungry? Scripture has it, after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. ... Matthew 4:1
Did He get tired and seek privacy from the crowds? Early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up and slipped out to a solitary place to pray. Simon and his companions went to look for Him, and when they found Him, they said, "Everyone is looking for You!"...Mark 1:35-37 So, it had to be probably 11:00, in the middle of the day, they couldn't find Him, they went looking for Him.
Did He embrace the children? Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them! For the kingdom of heaven" belongs to such as these. And (after) He had placed His hands on them Matthew 19:14-15
Jesus did all these things as an example to us, that He is truly our best friend and in Heaven the fulfillment of all we've ever longed for. Will we see Him only on a throne? Or will we go on picnics with Him?
I believe we will worship Him on His throne AND go on picnics. I don't believe it has to be either/or. What does Scripture say???
He will rejoice over you with singing." Zephaniah 3:17 "Rejoice over you" - literally means "dance, skip, leap, and spin around in joy." God dances with shouts of joy over us!
Will there be a wedding banquet for the Bride without dancing with the groom??? "For your husband has become your Maker, Whose name is the LORD of hosts; And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, Who is called the God of all the Earth. For the LORD has called you, like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, Even like a wife of one's youth when she is rejected," says your God. Isaiah 54:5-6
Is the Song of Songs an allegory of Jesus' love for His Bride? It has been taught for centuries. Or is just a romantic rambling, something King Solomon wrote over his new wife? If that's true - why was included in the Canon?
Why? Because it has to do with God's affection for His Bride.
The Lord uses the allegory of Husband and Wife to convey the absolute unity and intimacy we should experience in our relationship with Him - not just in Heaven, but now on Earth. But carnal-minded people immediately assign sexual motives to God.
If you ask me - THAT is blasphemy.
How could a holy God enter into an impure relationship? Doesn't He state clearly enough that there is no male or female in Heaven and no one marries or is given in marriage in Heaven?
Jesus replied to the Pharisees who were making these false accusations, "You are mistaken because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. In the resurrection, people will neither marry nor be given in marriage. Instead, they will be like the angels in Heaven." Matthew 22:29-30
There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28
But He uses this intimate language to portray the closest possible relationship with us. Union with Him, even giving us His body to take into our earthly bodies to seal this relationship in a holy and pure way in Communion.
Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her to sanctify her, cleansing her by the washing with water through the Word, and to present her to Himself as a glorious church. Ephesians 5:26-27
Some people will say that the Bride is the group...the church. But then, where does the Song of Solomon come in?
Oh, People! Who has beguiled you into thinking like a carnal man over heavenly things? Are you taking this as a man's opinion or are you searching the Scriptures to find the truth??
And are people twisting the Scriptures to make them allegory and not literal? Putting their own twist on it to discredit us?
What does Jesus promise us in the Scriptures about our relationship with Him?
"The one who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I, too, will love them and show Myself to them." We're supposed to SEE the Lord. (that's John 14:21) If we love Him, we will see Him!
"On that day you will realize that I am in My Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you". That's John 14:20. How can someone live inside of you, and not feel what you feel?
"If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever - the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you." John 14:15-18
Guys, wherever you have Jesus, you have the Holy Spirit. And you have God the Father. The Trinity is inseparable!
"Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. John 14:23 These are all in John 14, by the way.
Explain something to me, and think about this: how does someone live with you and not experience all the feelings you have... and not react? Did He not say, "Weep with those who weep, laugh with those who laugh?" Romans 12:15
So, should He live inside of us like a phantom that has no emotions and doesn't react to our sorrows and joys? Should He never hold and comfort us? Should He never dance and rejoice with us?
Don't you see??? We live on a dark, sin-swept planet and Jesus comes to regenerate new life in us. During worship, holding us to His heart, kissing our foreheads and healing our fears. How can we survive without this interaction with Him??
Personally, I was a very lame Christian until I had this kind of interaction with Him. I needed...MORE. I needed to be regenerated more. We are drained of life everyday. How can He live in us and not respond to our spiritual and emotional fatigue?
This is a new day, People. Satan has wrecked havoc on Earth. People are tired of a Religious spirit walking around with a prune face, judging and condemning. They are hungry for real love. Not sensuality, but being loved for who they are, right now - with all their faults. We are so busy trying to change people from the outside, we don't see that only God can change people and He only does it from the inside out. It is by His kindness that sinners are converted. Scripture has it, "God's kindness leads you to repentance." That's Romans 2:4
Why do you suppose so many testify that they met Jesus here on this channel, or that they have come back to the Lord, after falling away for - sometimes 30 or 40 years!
And I'm totally amazed at people who come on this channel and say, "All you do is talk about yourself and how Jesus loves you, etc. etc." If they ever come back to see my answer - I don't know if they bother - but it's very simple. The Lord wants me to be transparent. And He wants YOU to see how much He loves me, even though I'm a MESS. And that if He can use ME - He can use YOU. That's the whole point of me talking about myself! It's so that you can see: He loves me! I'm not perfect!
Aren't we all sick of the "perfect Christian"? And we know it's a myth and a cover-up. The personal lives of Christians are all messed up, because they don't DARE talk about their faults. At least here, you can see: someone has a LOT of faults, and God still loves them. And the community still loves them! It gives them permission to be who they are, and know that God can change them.
People are tired of our condemnation. They are tired of our religious formalisms. They are tired of man-made rules. They want the REAL JESUS - True God and True Man - and they have seen Him and encountered Him on this channel.
And THAT'S why we are lied about.
Please, don't be duped by a Religious spirit that condemns this tender relationship. Don't be beaten into fear of Hell because Jesus kissed a forehead or held an aching soul to His Heart.
Don't strip Jesus of His love and humanity! Experience Him the way He longs to be experienced. Put down the Religious walls and barriers. Can the fear! He loves you just the way you are and He wants you to encounter Him just the way He is and will be in Heaven forever.
"Don't let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in Me. My Father's house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you with me, so that you also may be where I am. John 14:1-3
He just said, "I will come back and take you to be with Me..." Where? To the place He just prepared just for you. The place of your personal dreams. The place where you encounter living flowers, bees that swarm in hearts, horseback riding through the hills of Heaven. Where lions cuddle up next to you and butterflies land on your finger. A place full of beauty and love He just labored and created for you.
Are you going to deny Him the joy of seeing you discover all of this because a Religious spirit said you can't have a picnic with Jesus beside a heavenly ocean? And He can't be possessive of His time with you? Because a lion comes trotting along demanding a cookie...and Jesus teases about that?
Is it sacrilegious to laugh and play???
One of my children had a dream that Jesus and Noah were out in a canoe. And Jesus stood up and started rocking the canoe until he flipped Noah into the water. My son woke up laughing and is serving Him to this day - thirty years later. He also had a vision of blood flowing from the Cross and covering the Earth. God communicated with that child on his level and those memories formed a part of his first Christian experience. Will you deprive him of this joy and tell him he is sacrilegious for laughing and it was really a demon he dreamt of??
I'm sorry to tell you this - and I'm not condemning you. But if you think that way, you are in serious bondage to a Religious spirit and you need to get free and renounce it.
May God forgive us for all the people we have turned away from the Joyful Jesus! They are still wandering in the darkness looking for Him. And when they find Him on this channel, the enemy finds gullible souls and feeds them lies and turns them away from what they could have had with Jesus...and threatens them with Hell.
Tell me, where is the fruit in that? Are you having problems with discernment?
Jesus said, "By their fruit you will know them. A good tree cannot bring forth bad fruit. Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit....Matthew 7:16-17
And turning a soul away from their salvation, because they encountered the love of God on a channel is BAD fruit. And by the way, what do you experience on these channels that keep putting us down? Is it sweet fruit - or is it bitterness, rancor, hatred, condemnation, a critical spirit? What does that taste like? Does that taste like Jesus to you?
It doesn't take a PHD in Divinity to know the difference between something that's sour and bitter, and something that's sweet! The Lord made discernment simple - so simple a two-year-old could taste the fruit and tell you which one's Jesus and which one isn't.
Have we become so sophisticated that we are lacking spiritual taste buds? It's SO much simpler than we make it out to be. "Unless we become as a little child, we cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven." Those are HIS words - not mine.
So, don't be gullible. Taste the fruit and TEST it with the Scriptures.
