CANCEL CULTURE, THE CHURCH AND THE PANDEMIC / PLANDEMIC
This pandemic has been the 'birthing mother' of a lot of psychosocial issues in our world and communities. We've seen the pit of hell opening up during the past 2 years and the unleashing of demonic activities in our streets and schools like never before. While people were dealing with the plandemic from China and trying to make sense of all the confusion and Covid mandates the devil slipped in by the backdoor to terrorize and devastate us. For those who saw all of this playing out, it became clear that those speaking out would be intimidated or even cancelled. When you don't agree with abortion they make it their business to put hate on you and try to intimidate you, but their focus is your cancellation. And the abortion crisis isn't all, but many other crises were created during this period. More than any society can handle to confuse normal people more to create a new normal. Almost in a certain sense using the tactics of brainwashing and doctrines of demons to confuse people.
In a certain sense, we as a church created a cancel culture pandemic. Hear me out before you cancel me or even this very important message.
Have you ever heard what we call in Christianese, The Jezebel spirit? If you walk in Christian circles you may have heard people talking about the Jezebel spirit. If not, let me explain. What we now see in the cancel culture pandemic is exactly what the church has been doing for ages. Cancel culture may look like new terminology, but for how long have certain minorities been cancelled right here on our doorsteps in South Africa and also in many other places in the world. We cancel people when they don't agree with us or when we choose not to like them.
The Bible teaches in 1 Timothy 4:1-2-
'But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, '
And Colossians 2:8
'See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. '

•This colouring page came home with a first-grader whose family attends Westgate Chapel and whose child is at Westgate Elementary School in the Edmonds School District…and people wonder why we encourage our families to get their children out of harm's way in public school! -Bishop Alec Rowlands
Three mistakes that the deceptive mind makes:
Error by exaggeration — truth wrapped in a lie.
Error by elevating a special revelation above the Word of God.
Error by proud self-promotion. Alec Rowlands
“A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, 'You are mad; you are not like us.” - Saint Anthony the Great
Anthony the Great lived about 300 AD and he already saw the times of the end. We are living in the last days of the great temptation…. The Deception and falling away.
There are violent attacks against the pastors and 5-fold ministry. Laws are made to cancel us. Little foxes coming to destroy us. The spirits of Jezebel and Judas are among us. We need to identify and let God justify them through His Grace and mercy. These days bad is good now… good is bad. Love the truth! Read a Bible you understand, but just do not stop reading. If the front lines succumb we have trouble and we have to keep the line. Let us be led by people of the truth and be 'activists' of Truth and not lies.
Some will fall back from the faith (backslide)
The Manifestation of backsliding:
Fall away from the church
Zeal for the Lord lost
Walking away from a ministry or family
Relapse into old habits.
True colours appear.
• Jezebel spirit - any type of spirit such as sexual promiscuity to false doctrines.
• Spirit of control and dominance (obsessive disorders).
• Even Christ warns the church in Thyatira about the spirit of Jezebel (Jezebel) - Rev 2: 18-29.
• The end for those who succumb to a Jezebel spirit is always death and destruction.
Things that refer to Jezebel in the word
Was a female member of the congregation in Thiatire.
In OT she wanted to mix the religions. (Yahweh and Baal).
She calls herself a prophetess (Rev. 2).
Sin justifies grace.
She only had the name Christian denying the power.
Bad attitude and sees her prophecy as the 'answer'.
Many faces and Rebellion.
Doctrines of demons:
EVERYTHING THAT DOESN'T LOOKS AND TASTE CHRIST-LIKE IS FROM THE DEVIL !! IF YOU CAN NOT SEE JESUS DOESN'T MEAN THAT HE MAY NOT BE IN IT?
These 'people' are Graduated in Theology.
You will also find the 1st Revelation of demonic teachings in Genesis 3: 4-5.
They are also branded in their conscience.
Lies go at top speed but the truth is on foot.
The NAR - New Apostolic Reformation (2000).
(The New Apostolic Reformation, or NAR, is an unbiblical religious movement that emphasizes experience over Scripture, mysticism over doctrine, and modern-day “apostles” over the plain text of the Bible. Of particular distinction in the New Apostolic Reformation are the role and power of spiritual leaders and miracle-workers, the reception of “new” revelations from God, an over-emphasis on spiritual warfare, and the pursuit of cultural and political control in society. The seeking of signs and wonders in the NAR is always accompanied by blatantly false doctrine.
Here are examples of typical demonic influences and behaviour of demons:
Turn away from the truth.
To destroy things which work!
People who stand for what is right will be cancelled. Jesus was cancelled by many. Hold the line!
