FLATTERY

SATAN'S FAVORITE HELPERS USE A TRICKY TOOL TO SNAG SAINTS


Flattery is a vicious plague in Fundamental Baptist and Bible believing circles. Men like Lee Roberson and John MacArthur are exalted and praises wherever they go. Monuments are even built to exalt Fundamental menafter they die. Let us see what the Bible says about flattery.

The following letter was sent to me by a Charismaniac preacher who wants to break me down and call me to the front of the local loonie bin to fall on the floor and vomit on myself under color of the alleged baptism of the Holy Ghost.

"Jesus has great plans for you Steve, quit hiding and hear the Word of the Lord as He calls you out of dead religion to a living relationship with Him. He is calling you to experience the supernatural aspect of His love. You know, healing the sick, raising the dead, etc. It is coming for you. He is on your trail and soon you will have a Toronto, Brownsville type encounter with the very God you have been running from. You like so many before are persecuting the very people you will become one of."

This mongrel dog is trying to move my mind to look for "something more", "the gift," or whatever he can trigger in my imagination to exalt myself. If I would do this, he would be first to encourage me to greatness. Of course, he would like a little credit when Paul Crouch interviews me on the TBN show.

Here is the answer to flattery:

2 Peter 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

Job 17:5 He that speaketh flattery to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail.

Get thee behind me Satan.

It is the mark of a cult and hireling that he is a master at flattery. You cannot catch Jesus once flattering anyone, but you CAN find him rejecting flattery several times. Giving credit for work well done is found in the Bible, but exalting someone beyond measure, or predicting they will become someone great in the near future, is wicked.

Are you one of these folks? Do you take people in and take power over them by praising them to their own eyes and in front of others? This is Satanic, and Daniel tells us your father, Satan, will use this method to dominate Israel and the world.

Speaking of the prince who shall come, Antichrist:

Daniel 11:21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.

Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

 

Flattery is the tool of Satan.

If you want to praise someone, praise God. If you thank God for the blessing of some saint, the glory goes to God instead of man. This is acceptable. But, even in this, you must be modest and restrained, or your friend my inhale the incense and be raised up beyond measure.

Also, in closing this thought, beware of these people who prophecy that some great thing will come to you soon. The tricky Satanists will predict that the power of the Holy Ghost is about to fall on you. They may tell you that God showed them that you will be doing some great thing soon. If you let this take root in your mind, you may well be drawn into the clutches of devils. Denounce these demonic prophecies with the strongest terms from the Word of God. My favorite:

2 Peter 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

By the way, the above false prophet and Charismatic dog told me he was once an Independent Fundamental Baptist, but now he is a Charismatic braggart and false prophet, wonderful in his own eyes,

Oh so great, he doth declare,
Frosty crystals in his hair,
Powerful beyond compare,
"Trust me" saith the prophet there.

He implied to me that if I did not take his prophecy seriously I was blaspheming the Holy Ghost. I hope he reads this. There will not be any of these flattering self-appointed Balaams in the Glory, praise God.

 

 

HERE IS A LETTER FROM A SAINT WHO HAS BEEN DELIVERED
FROM THIS DEMONIC PACK OF DOGS

Dear Steve,

Hi brother Steve, I hope that everything is going well by the time you read this letter.

Recently I took a look at your post on a charismatic guy who wrote you a letter. And it was kind of funny because I went to a church that was exactly like that. People were doing cartwheels and back flips in the Holy Ghost. I even saw a woman jump backwards, fall, and hit a table with water and spilled it all over the floor, and she was still rolling around like a pig in its filth. It was, to this day, one of the most hilarious sites I have ever seen in my life. I have seen people do the weirdest things, like one time a woman had a plastic stick with a a long rainbow colored ribbon and she would run back and forth in the aisle swinging it like a maniac, and people thought it was "cool", and "unique".

Speaking in tongues was the norm and woman prophets and pastors were all the rage. To them, Brownsville is where they are headed. I guess my whole point is that every damnable, undoctrinal, non-suffering, prosperity doctrine is considered Holy. A man's revelation about God, though it contradicts the Holy Scriptures is considered as almost another book to be added in the Bible (Like that Foolio Benny Hinn's Book Good Morning Holy Spirit). But these very people who will accept anything, and almost everything, under the guise of the "Holy" ghost, will never accept biblical fundamentalism, because they want to accommodate the world, rather than take the straight and narrow and please their savior.

When I read what that guy wrote to you Steve, it reminded me of the people I used to congregate with. When I listened to their Jumanji version of Christianity, they called me a "David". But when I began to question their doctrine about tongues, and the Bible issues, when I started to defend the King James Bible; they did not give me answers. All they could do was attack me, and they beat me, like they beat their other sheep who did not agree with them. They were ravenous wolves, and they told me that I was "Opening the Door for the Devil".

And it took a long time for me to heal from those hurts, because I thought that the final authority of the Word of God meant as much to them as it meant to me. And I bet you that very guy who is trying to flatter you into his Satanic counterfeit circus with his complements, if someone in his congregation were to stand up for pure doctrine, he would attack and eat them alive.

One thing I have learned about Charismatics is that they love people who are content with the truth they give them, and despise those who seek out the truth for themselves in the Word Of God. The nature of the charismatic man is to make himself a God-like figure, to make himself part of an elite, "annointed" circle whom people want to flock to, so that they don't have to do anything but give seminars and get rich.

Well Steve, I am going to get going, I just wanted to let you know that reading that letter you received brought back a lot of fresh and fond memories of people crying uncontrollably, falling on the floor, and let's not forget my favorite, being "Slain" by the "Holy" ghost. Take Care Brother and God Bless Steve, and keep on identifying those wolves because there are many hurting out there from these people but are too afraid to leave because they think their salvation depends on their affiliation with these nuts.

Keep Strong in the Faith brother,
Manuel A______________
