But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. -- 2Peter 2:1-3 (ESV)
I do not know Jennifer Eivaz. She is apparently a pastor's wife and thus is considered an Executive Pastor despite what the bible says about the matter. That is for a different discussion. This devotional is to the above linked article from Jennifer encouraging false prophets everywhere how to deal with the "spirit of rejection" they all must face. Her bio assures us she is more than qualified to speak about false prophets since she has taught at the Heretical Bethel School of the Prophets and overseas at something called the "Seers and Prophets Institute." She is also a regular contributor to Charisma Online and the Elijah List, further cementing her loony tunes status. Let us reason once more beloved as we explore the depths of depravity within the mind of a false prophet and see what she is teaching other false prophets.
"During an overseas trip, I noticed a common theme of deliverance in both countries I ministered in. It was deliverance from a spirit of rejection. Strangely, I wasn't teaching on the subject of rejection nor did I call it out during the prayer and altar times. Still, many who came forward for ministry would manifest much in the same way. They would begin to choke, cough and then vomit out a spirit of rejection. The Holy Spirit was swift to give my team and me discernment as we encountered the same manifestation again and again. When we encountered it, we would say something like, "In the name of Jesus, I command the spirit of rejection to leave you! Come out now!" And sure enough, the person would typically choke, cough and then vomit. Usually, we had to lead such persons in a prayer of repentance to forgive those who've rejected them in the past or for rejecting themselves. One person kept shaking their head "no" when I commanded that spirit to leave, but I just kept after it until the person finally coughed the spirit out. To be very real and honest, I hate it when people vomit during deliverance. I wish there was another way. It seems that this spirit can hide deep down on the inside. I also realized that some people will choose to hold on to rejection because they would rather hold on to their dignity and just not "go there" when it's time to get delivered. Why am I bringing this up in connection with prophets? It's because prophets seem to have an acute struggle with rejection. Rejection is always speaking to them, bullying them, intimidating them and basically trying to shut them down so they won't speak what God says to speak. I believe most prophets need deliverance from rejection at certain points in their lives. It's more than just an attitude. It's a spirit that has to go if your prophetic word is going to go forth from a pure place, if at all. We also need to come out of agreement with rejection so this spirit no longer has access to us in the first place." -- Jennifer Eivaz
What a pile of vomit. This is what happens when one bases their theology on horror movies like The Exorcism. So let's play along. So she was "ministering" overseas when she noticed the false prophets she was praying for would all keel over and vomit. Now we know she does not have the indwelt Holy Spirit because the first thing the spirit of God would tell her is to stop lying on behalf of God! It is not "rejection" these poor false prophets were dealing with but rather demonic possession. Perhaps the grueling life of pretending to hear from God so you can rob other people manifested itself in physical symptoms such as vomiting? Perhaps they are rejected because people see they are possessed by a lying spirit? You see, a true prophet of God does not care a lick what other people think about him or say about him. He answers only to God and must say what sayeth the Lord. The people rejected Christ but I do not recall Him vomiting up the spirit of rejection. If we are speaking for God we should expect rejection and welcome it. This is all semi-gnostic voodoo designed to make the false prophets seem deeply pious. Now, Jennifer spells out four things for false prophets to watch out for:
"1. Don't take things personal. We often measure our worth through our unrealistic perceptions of being accepted or not accepted by others. In so doing, we take things personal that were never meant to be. Our identity is in Christ. And remember, nobody owes you anything." -- Jennifer Eivaz
Let me be clear then. I mean this personally. If you falsely prophesy on the Lord's behalf, you are a false prophet. If this occurred during the Old Testament they would pick up large stones and crush you with them until you were dead. That is how seriously God takes people usurping His voice. I understand that at Bethel or whatever supernatural school you attended they taught you that the thoughts generated by your wickedly deceitful heart was actually God speaking to you but let me assure you it is not. If it were, you would never be "wrong." If you are prophelying and blaming the Lord then I would wager you are not even saved, in which case your identity is not in Christ but rather is found in the devil. Stop your games and seek the Lord.
"2. Stop comparing yourself to others. There is no comparison because you are uniquely you. Let people inspire you by what they do, but you don't need to do what they do. You have your own assignment." -- Jennifer Eivaz
Yes, and your assignment is to lead people astray from Jesus Christ with false words from the Father. I hate to break this to you but that is not unique at all. It has been happening for over 6000 years and will continue to do so long after you leave this earth and stand before Christ for judgment. Your heresy is not new. Your apostasy is shared apostasy. The bible says your destruction was set long ago. Do jot feel bad that you are not special but rather about what you will say when you stand before the Lord you lied about for so long.
"3. Avoid rejection rhetoric. I've been guilty of this, and I'm still working on it. It's when you feel all alone and you begin to make prophetic-sounding statements that are actually statements birthed from your own woundedness. Things like, "Get ready for people to leave you when God promotes you!" Or, "In order to go up, you have to leave some people behind." Although there is an element of truth to this, do you really need to make an official, prophetic-like statement about it? No. You are slipping into rejection rhetoric and possibly coming into agreement with the spirit of rejection itself." -- Jennifer Eivaz
Oh no! Do not come into agreement with the spirit that doesn't exist! Because Jennifer does not understand her bible, she does not understand true spiritual warfare. When you open yourself up to the false prophetic, you are exposing yourself to all sorts of demonic influence. When Old Testament prophets spoke they were always right because God had audibly told them. They did not try to discern thoughts that popped into their heads. When New Testament prophets speak they are always right because their prophetic word comes from the final revealed will of God in His written word. They do not have to try and sift through their wicked hearts. When you try transcendental meditation or soaking nonsense, you allow demons to speak into your mind, which you perceive as your heart and then you assign that thought or feeling to God. While you are playing rejection rhetoric games, your words are actually scattering people away from Jesus Christ.
"4. Get this down: Mistakes are opportunities. Because prophets seem to be more serious in their demeanor, when they make mistakes, it's almost as though the end of the world has happened. They slip into self-condemnation, self-loathing and practically hang up their calling when they miss a word, make a blunder or have a personal failure. If there is one thing I've learned more than anything else, it's that your mistake is your opportunity. God can and will turn everything around for good (Rom. 8:28). Yes, you might need to work on your character or your reaction to your errors and missteps, but at the end of the day, God can make this work for you instead of against you. Don't self-reject over mistakes. Grow from them." -- Jennifer Eivaz
If it were Old Testament times it would be the end of their world. This is so wrong and is the crux of the false arguments made for modern day prophecy. There are no such things as mistakes when it comes to the prophetic. NONE. Why? Because God is allegedly speaking and He does not lie, stutter, or get something wrong! Mistakes are opportunities for the world to see you are a false prophet and mark you as such for avoidance, period, full stop. It is also an opportunity for you to see your own falseness. Miss a word? Where in the bible do you see any prophet ever "miss a word?" These are not blunders beloved -- they are lies! There are no personal failures here. The failures are in misrepresenting God! How can you not get that? How does that not strike fear into your heart? Is your conscience so seared that you can try to ascend to the throne of the Most High, lie on His behalf, fail and think this is some kind of growth opportunity? If you lie about God and what God says, you are not called according to His purpose! Romans 8:28 has nothing to do with you! Try focusing on the key verses today, which are specifically about you. You bring destructive heresies into the body of Christ! By lying about what God said, you deny the Master. You bring upon yourself swift destruction, which is not asleep. You lead others to blaspheme the way of truth. Your condemnation is from long ago and is most certainly not idle.
"A prophet intimately knows the power of the Word of God, and it's the Word of God that will deliver you from rejection! A prophet, then, is to receive their identity from God's Word and not from the acceptance or rejection of men. The way you walk in Christ's identity is by holding firm to His truths and promises for your life. The more attentive you are to studying and meditating on the Word, the better equipped you are to be able to steward your God-given identity as well as teach others how to do the same. When you know His Word, you know His will and heart.
Scripture to Help You Walk Out Your True Identity in Christ
"Lean not on your own understanding" (Prov. 3:5b).
"[You] have the mind of Christ" (1 Cor. 2:16b).
"Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world" (1 John 4:4b, KJV).
"If God is for [you], who can be against [you]?" (Rom. 8:31b).
God loves you (see Zeph. 3:17).
You are accepted in the Beloved (see Ps. 27:10, Eph. 1:5-7).
Bill Hamon said in his book Prophets and Personal Prophecy, "God is very sensitive about His prophets. To touch one of His prophets is to touch the apple of His eye. To reject God's prophets is to reject God. To fail to recognize the prophets, or to keep them from speaking, is to refuse God permission to speak." Even God knows you will face a unique struggle with rejection because of what you carry. Let it draw you in to the heart of the Father. It's your vertical relationship with God that is to overshadow every other relationship you have in life and not the other way around. If the spirit of rejection has taken over your life, my prayer and decree for you is this: "In the name of Jesus, I command the spirit of rejection to leave you. Be free!" You are an amazing gift to the body of Christ. God loves you, and I do too!" -- Jennifer Eivaz
Bill Hamon was an established false prophet. This is how the purpose driven industrial complex works. They prop each other up and protect the brand at all costs. Eivaz thinks dropping the name of one of the most wickedly false prophets of our lifetime will give her street cred in the false prophet arena as she tries to prop up and encourage younger false prophets with this article. She talks a good game about the word but four of the six scripture citations are partial! Proverbs 3:5 starts with trusting in the Lord with all of your heart -- not trusting in your heart and blaming it on the Lord. Having the mind of Christ has to do with the indwelt Holy Spirit. Are we getting the point? These are all scriptures for someone who actually follows what the Lord says. Not for people who pretend to hear words from Him and then see opportunities when they misrepresent what God has said. Spirits of rejection and projectile vomiting, just more pseudo-spiritual gobbledygook to distract us from the only prophetic voice that matter, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
