Another 'Christ'

"Another ’Christ’"

"Woe! Woe! For I hear the voice of the Antichrist
among those who claim to follow Me!

"Instead of proclaiming Me as the Chosen One,
many among My people are proclaiming the circumcision as the chosen ones!

"Instead of proclaiming My centrality in the end-times,
they are proclaiming the centrality of Israel in the end-times!

"Instead of declaring that I am the salvation that came out of Zion,
they are declaring that the hope of the world will come in Zion,
in the full restoration of the earthly borders of Israel!

"Many among My people have given themselves to telling the circumcision,
'You are the chosen ones,' instead of the gospel of the Chosen One,
in the vain hope that it will lead them to Me and hasten the end!

"Many among My people have forgotten that ancient Israel was 'chosen'
so that the world might see the consequences of sin revealed in the Cross,
for being 'chosen' and 'favored' did not help them believe in Me!

"Woe! Woe! For many among My people have given themselves
to telling the world that My anger and wrath will destroy them
unless they 'kiss' the chosen ones!

"Woe! Woe! For many who claim to follow the Christ
are thus preaching another 'Christ' and another gospel,
using My name to preach salvation and favor through honoring the circumcision!

"Woe! Woe! For among many of My people this is the heart
of the message they teach about the end-times!

"Woe! Woe! For they have embraced the spirit of the antichrist
and hold to it for guidance in the end-times!

"Woe! Woe! For they have embraced the very spirit
that will lead them to fulfill the prophecies of Babylon!

"Woe! Woe! For they look to Israel to understand the times,
and they look to their love for Israel to clothe them in the last day!"

Turning to Clouds

"Come! Come with Me!
Why are you turning back to 'clouds' and signs
that dazzle your eyes and leave you in awe?
Why are you turning back to Sinai?
You looking for the wonders of the Old Covenant,
and your eyes are becoming clouded to the glory of the New Covenant,
the clear revelation of the Son and intimacy with My Spirit!

To many of you, 'knowing My Spirit' has come to mean knowing My works,
speaking in the language of the shadows of the Old Covenant,
and ascending to the 'level' of wonders that ancient Israel saw!
To many of you, 'knowing Me' has come to mean knowing power,
standing among the throng of the assembly
while those in higher 'anointing' display wonders,
inviting you to climb to a 'higher level' on the 'mountain' they are on!

But I died to remove the veil so that you could see Me clearly,
not so that you could return to following 'clouds'!
I died for you so that you could share My heart!
I died for you so that you could know My spirit!
I did not die for you so that you would return to Sinai!
I did not die so that you would seek to know Me from a distance!
I died so that you could be with Me, not with shadows of Me!

Return! Return to the narrow way!
Do not turn away to chase after 'clouds' and signs
which give you awe but not intimacy with Me!
Do not seek after the wonder of 'the supernatural'
but seek instead to know and understand My heart!
Look! I have put the shoes of the gospel on your feet!
Walk! Do not take them off in the hope of returning to Moses!"

Prophetic Confusion

Prophetic Confusion

"Behold! A time is coming upon the world when there will be great confusion:
many people will be certain that they have the answer to teach,
that the cause of many troubles is spiritual,
and that ordering the nations righteously
will bring about the fulfillment of the Scriptures.

"Many who profess My name will not look towards My Son,
but will instead look towards the circumcision.
Many who call themselves My people will not look to Me,
but will instead look to the sins of their neighbors.
Many who say they serve Me will abandon My Son's command
for the ways of the Law instead.

"Behold, the confusion has already begun among those who are called 'prophets',
among whom the agendas of nations have replaced the gospel of My Son!
Those who preach the gospel of My Son least
are accounted as those with the greatest knowledge of My will;
those who preach the circumcision
are accounted as those proclaiming My kingdom.

"Who among you has wisdom?
Who among you will hold to the love I gave you in My Son on the Cross,
and which I commanded you in Him to give to one another?
Who among you will know when tribulation is upon you,
and who among you will not discern it because of drinking the wine of Babylon?"

Liberty's Foundation

"Liberty’s Foundation"

"My Son! My Son! I have given you My Son!
What other covenant do you need than the New Covenant in My Son's blood?
What other 'constitution' is necessary?
What other justice do you need than the justice I gave you at the Cross?
What other Law is My kingdom founded on than the commandment of My Son—
'Love one another as I have loved you'?

"My beloved children in America,
many of you have wandered into a 'far-away country'!
You believe I have given you 'America' as your inheritance
and that I reward your hard works,
the sacrifices of your soldiers and forefathers!
And you are ready to fight one another and your neighbor
to defend the freedom that you have bought with your own blood!

"But My Son's sacrifice was the only one necessary for your freedom!
My Son's glory is the only glory that you need!
The gospel of My Son is the only gospel that you need!
Repent, My people! Return to Me! Return to the Cross!
Return to the gospel of My Son! Return to My kingdom!
Count all other things as loss!

"The hour is growing late;
do not look by the light of your own liberty,
but instead see by the light of My liberty alone,
or you will be overtaken by darkness!"

"My Joy"

"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus,
the author and perfecter of our faith,
who for the sake of the joy set before Him
endured the cross, disregarding its shame,
and has taken His seat at the right hand of the throne of God."

- Hebrews 12:2

"All for you, Child, I surrendered;
on the Cross I took your shame.
On My nail-scarred hands forever,
lovingly I wrote your name.

"All for you, Child, I surrendered;
all for you I freely gave.
I will ever love and hold you;
in you I will always live."

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,
let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles,
and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us...
Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men,
so that you will not grow weary and lose heart...

"Have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons?
'My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,
and do not lose heart when He rebukes you,
because the Lord disciplines those He loves,
and He chastens everyone He accepts as His child.'"

- Hebrews 12:1,3,5-6

"Hide Yourself in My Heart"

"I share My tears with you not only from the pain of My heart,
but I also share My tears to shield you
from what would otherwise be too much for you to bear.
Don't be afraid of My tears,
for I will use them to share My heart with others,
and I will use them to protect you from attack.
I am your shield and I am the only place of safety.
Rest in Me and rest in My love.
Hide yourself in My heart."

“In those days, at that time,” declares the Lord,
“the people of Israel and the people of Judah together
will go in tears to seek the Lord their God.

They will come and bind themselves to the Lord
in an everlasting covenant that will not be forgotten.

"The Gospel! The Gospel!
Wake up, My people! I have called you to the Gospel!
I have not called you to enforce the Law on your neighbors and your country!
I have not called you to put your neighbors—or yourselves—in that bondage!

"I am not who many of you think I am!
I am not demanding that you—or your enemies—conform to be accepted by Me!
My Son did not die to make you ministers of the Old Covenant;
He died to make you ministers of My grace in the New Covenant!

Witness to Babylon

"You are My witnesses! You are My witnesses!
I am calling you to walk among My people
to testify of My Son and My command of agape love,
for many of My people have fallen into prostitution,
not knowing what they are doing to themselves.

"Many are seeking the favors of prosperity, power and politics,
and are allowing themselves to be abused day after day.
They do not understand what is being done to their hearts:
they are full of fears, easily aroused to anger and war,
their peace in Me is quickly removed, their goal is comfort,
and they believe My approval is gained by the 'stands' they take.

"Go! Love them with the love I have given you in My Son!
Do not be afraid of offending them or of threats against you,
for I am with you and I will keep you through suffering.
Listen! Listen to the cries of My heart for My beloved children!
You know My love, you know My rest, and you know My heart.
Walk with Me among those who call themselves My people.
Look through My eyes of love for those who live in Babylon."

"Overloading My Children!"

By Ramone Romero
July 21, 2010

Several years ago an intercessor whom I don't know was praying for a big series of meetings in Japan, which would have guest speakers who were famous 'prophetic' voices in charismatic churches/movements. The intercessor wrote:
"God showed me a vision when I prayed for a dream about the [...] meetings on the other day. In the vision, there was a baby in a crib. A mom came to see him and put a list on his crib, and then walked away. On that list were things that he should and shouldn't do. The baby looked very confused. He didn't know what was he supposed to do."
The intercessor said briefly that they thought the baby was the church in Japan, and the mom were the leaders who were treating the baby the wrong way. But then the intercessor went onto say that God was raising up an army in Japan of elite troops, and that through the meetings God would blow a mighty wind through Japan, and to prophesy to people to rise up, rise up, etc.

It was shocking for me to read because the intercessor writing the interpretation and the leader organizing the meetings (who had sent the intercessor's vision out for prayer) seemed to miss what God was saying: There are many, many, many strategies and knowledges leaders and missionaries have been trying to give to the children of Japan, but ONE THING IS NEEDED, the one thing that will not be taken away from them... to rest in the arms of the Lord, sitting at His feet, being cradled by Him.

"One Thing Is Needed"

I painted this picture (titled, "One Thing Is Needed") maybe five or more years later because of a little note my wife made about being confused. She had been hearing many teachings about how you need to know this, and this, and that, and that, etc., and in this case we need to know this or that, etc. The same thing that was happening at those meetings back then with the 'prophets' continues today, not only at that church/network, but here at local churches and around the world.

God, I want to repent for overloading Your children here. You are the Teacher, You are the One. It's not about what I know, what we know, and all the good things we've learned. They need You, not me. God, give us Your heart for them so that we hold them in love instead of teaching them and then walking away. They need love, so fill our arms with Your love so we may hold them, being Your arms. It's all about You and Your love for them. Amen!

And now, today as I post this (January 18th, 2012), I hear You say:
"My children are being overloaded!
My children are being overloaded!
Where are their spiritual parents?
Where are their spiritual parents?

"Woe to those who overload My children!
Woe to those who set before My children rule upon rule,
knowledge upon knowledge and 'level' after 'level'!
Woe to those who scar My children from knowing My love!

"Repent! Repent! Take away your many rules!
Repent of the many 'levels' and 'keys' you force on My children!
Repent of putting My children back under the yoke of Law!
Repent of giving instructions first while withholding love!"

Woe to you, for all your knowledge
will not bring you out of the desert you live in!

"Every knee will bow before Me and every tongue will confess
that I am the Lord, to the glory of God My Father.
I am a jealous God—jealous for My beloved children!
I am wroth with all that abuses you, My precious children!
I died to give you freedom and everlasting life,
how can I not be angry when loads are placed upon you?

"I am coming! I am coming! I am coming,
and I will repay those who put what is falsely called 'knowledge'

or about how dangerous it appears even to you yourself.
There is no safer place than leaning on My breast."

So take heart! You have nothing to fear!
I already love you, accept you and cherish you!
Let Me remove your filthy garments and your rags.

Do I shed blood to save dead stones?
Upon what foundation and means are you trying to to build it?
What is the meaning of your weeping
and rending your garments over the works of your hands?
What is the hope you are waiting for?

"Turn to Me and live—today!"

Pursuing Whose Dream?

"Pursuing *Whose* Dream?"

"Let no debt remain outstanding,
except the continuing debt to love one another,
for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law...
Love does no harm to its neighbor.
Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
And do this, understanding the present time.
The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber,
because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed."
(Romans 13:8-11)

"My people! My people! Wake up, My people! Darkness is upon you!
Night is here, and you sleep while Babylon rises among you!

"Look! The love I showed you in the Cross is being traded among you for the power
of the law, for the seat of politics and the right to prosper yourselves!

"Your neighbors are poor, suffering and dying, and your enemies receive bullets
and bombs instead of the word of My love for My enemies in the Cross!

"Wake up! Repent and obey My commands!"

"The commands of the Lord are radiant,
giving light to the eyes."
(Psalm 19:8)

"My people, some of you are certain that you know the identity of 'the antichrist'
and the forces that you believe will 'align against you' in the end times.
You point to the acts of violence done by those who believe in different gods
and those who do not align with you politically.
Because they do not profess the name of Christ,
you deduce that they are 'the antichrist'.
Because they lash out in hatred at Christians and your countries,
you are certain that they are 'the antichrist'.

"My people, you do not realize that you are following
in the footsteps of Jews who believed Rome was their greatest enemy—
you have tried to discern the antichrist spirit by looking
at those who have fought against you!
But I sent you My Son to show you that your greatest enemies
are not the flesh and blood that can kill your body.
My Son did not die in order to free Jews from Rome,
but to free you all from sin and rebellion in your hearts!
In the same way, the spirit of antichrist is not an attack from the outside,
but is a rebellion from the inside,
just as the crucifixion of My Son was a rebellion among My people
against My grace, My mercy, and My law of agape love.

"The spirit of antichrist is not and will not be a persecution from outside,
but is and will be a rebellion against My law of agape love
that occurs among those who profess My name.
None of the many persecutions of Rome were able to destroy the witness
of the Church to the risen Christ, but when the Church received the crown of Rome,
many of My people rebelled against My law of agape love
and set out as a conqueror bent on conquest.
The spirit of antichrist arose from among My people to lead them
away from My commandments—My commandments to love as I have loved you,
and to carry the word of My love in the Cross to all nations.
Many who proclaimed My name went forth serving a false Christ,
a spirit set against My Word and My commandment: the antichrist spirit.

"Look to the spirit, not to the appearance of things!
Look to the heart, not to the profession of correct beliefs!
Look to My heart—My Spirit—to understand the last days!
Look to My Son, crucified for you while you were My enemies!"

'Only For the Advanced'

"Only For the Advanced"

"There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall."
(Psalm 46:4-5)

"Shepherds! Shepherds! Why are you afraid of Me?
Why are you afraid for your spiritual children?
Don't you know that I love them even more than you do?
You are afraid that I cannot keep them safe without you!

"I promised that I would pour out My Spirit on all flesh—even on your children!
But you have been afraid as if My Spirit is a raging river,
safe only for the spiritually mature to swim in.
Unintentionally you have taught My children to be afraid of Me,
that I will not keep them safe and that I give dangerous gifts to those I love.
You teach them to sing about Me but also to stay at a safe distance away.
They are left with longing, waiting to go deeper,
yet because you have taught them shadows from the old covenant,
the river of My Spirit appears murky to them—forbidding all
but the most spiritually 'advanced' from getting in the water unsupervised.

"For a time I have allowed you to stand between Me and My children
in order to give you time to repent.
But the day is coming when your walls will be broken down:
the rivers of the world will break them, and My Spirit will also break them.
I will allow this so that I may make My children glad with My presence,
and so that I may strengthen them and prepare them for the days that are coming.
Unless the barriers you have put between Me and My children are removed,
My children will not be able to stand in the days to come.

"Take Me at My word: Teach My children the truth of the New Covenant!"
