"1. Are You Called? Has the Lord Jesus Himself told you that He has called you? If so, you've stepped into a new level of maturity. You can hear the Lord for yourself. When the Lord told me I was a prophet, it didn't matter if no one else heard it; I knew what my Jesus had told me. It also gave me the strength to push through when the training got tough. There was a goal to keep my eyes on and Jesus' tender voice helped me along the way. If you have this, you have one strong ankle to lean on. But don't go out there thinking you've arrived! You aren't complete yet. You have just started the process. Don't jump the gun!" - Craig Toach
It did not matter if anyone else heard it. Let that resonate with you for a moment because this allows Toach to never doubt his own calling. It is interesting that he uses the phrase "my jesus" because it certainly was a false christ that gave him this false calling. We must recognize this as the central flaw within the entire false signs and lying wonders movement and within experiential Christianity that favors our own personal experience over what God has already written for us in His word. The secret to understanding the truth here is found in the simple key verse for today, from a real prophet, Jeremiah. God could have just said that our heart was desperately wicked and be done with it but He qualified it further by stating that it is deceitful above all things. Our heart does one thing exceptionally well and that is lie to us. Craig Toach did not hear Jesus call him. He heard the whisperings of his own desperately wicked and deceitful heart. Can God speak to us? Absolutely but when you consider the scope of history covered in the bible it was not a common happenstance for God to speak audibly. In many cases He did so through a prophet because there was no bible yet. Beloved, the bible represents the final revealed will of the creator of the entire universe but we seek a word from Craig Toach? Or Apostle Collette Toach? Why is that? Why when we have the scriptures do we believe that God Himself breathed into existence that we seek a "prophetic" word from the likes of Benny Hinn or Jennifer "Sneaky Squid" LeClaire? The answer is simple. We do not want to hear from God. We do not want to hear about serving, following, and worshipping. We would rather work out our salvation with pomp and circumstance than fear and trembling. So, we gather around for us those that will scratch our itching ears and tell us how great we are.
"2. Are You Confirmed? Has anyone confirmed what the Lord told you? You might ask, "Why do I need others to confirm my call when Jesus already did?" Knowing that what you heard was of the Lord will give you peace of mind. Your revelation wasn't just something you made up. This wasn't just a strong hope you were going on. Paul is a good example of this. I don't think anyone had a more dramatic call than Paul on the road to Damascus (Acts 9). Paul had been called but was literally still blind to the new path he was called to. It took Ananias to come to him and confirm he was called of God. Ananias gave Paul eyes to see. With these two processes achieved, Paul was ready to take on the next step of his process. If this happened to you, then you are too." - Craig Toach
Wait a minute. I thought you already heard from Jesus directly? Now in order to confirm my own deceitful heart I need to hear the same from someone else's deceitful heart? Just make it easy and the first false prophecy you utter you now have confirmed that your "call" was false. Ahh but then the game is up and the wannabe apostle would have to find a real job. Then we see another trademark of the apostate church in making direct comparisons between extraordinary biblical stories and our average lives. Saul was the chief persecutor of Christians, who presided over the death of the first martyr, Stephen. He then had a direct encounter with Jesus Christ and yes, Ananias did lay hands on him to receive back his sight after the Lord had blinded him. Here is today's deep theology. This story is not about you. God did not include it so that we can theorize that a prophet's call requires "confirmation." Did Saul need confirmation from Ananias or did he just need his eyesight back? Read the text and ask yourself if Paul was somehow unsure that he had encountered Christ and he was just waiting around for someone to confirm it for him. What nonsense.
"3. Are You Commissioned? The last step in the process is what gels the previous two together. Have you been commissioned? The Lord Jesus called you and took you on a journey. Then others saw the calling on you and confirmed it, giving you the confidence knowing both God and man see you. But what is it all for, unless you can use your calling to bless the church? What use is having all that potential and training to then sit at home and do nothing? That is why this next step is vital. It is your launching pad into ministry. All you have gone through was not in vain. Your process has formed you to be the vessel you are, for this is your commission to bless the body of Christ. Now it's your time to shine for Jesus! After having been called and commissioned, there was no doubt Paul was a changed man. However, it was only after the elders in Jerusalem sent him out that his ministry took off. The placement by a leader over you is the next step in the evolution of your process. It's your covenant vow in a fellowship of witnesses. Being commissioned means that you commit to something that you don't take lightly.
All too often, Colette and I work with prophets who have skipped one of the steps above. The result? They have an insecurity and continually try to prove themselves. Like me and my ankles, they know something isn't right and try so hard to compensate for it. The Lord didn't call you to live like this. You were called to walk in victory and be a gift to His bride! Checking off these three points will bring you peace. Then you can stand securely in who you are under covering. You can feel secure in calling yourself a prophet before God and man." - Craig Toach
This last point supports the false paradigm set up in the apostate church by the false prophet network. You must be acknowledged by someone already considered a prophet and be under their "covering." The aforementioned LeClaire for example created her own network of prophets called Ignite and if you send her money each month, you can claim to be part of that network, or commissioned. It is all a ponzi scheme. The only role Toach sees is for a prophet to bless the church. Never to warn the church. Never to admonish the church. Never to direct the church back to God. Read the bible and see if there were EVER prophets like that. Prophecy is the word from God! This is not some clairvoyant parlor trick. Do you want a prophetic word? Read your bible! You want to hear a prophetic word? Read your bible out loud! Stop chasing false apostles, false prophets and the rest of this cabal of false merchants peddling the word of the Lord. This is one of the easiest discernment exercises in the kingdom! If they speak falsely, just once, then they are false by definition. Mark them and avoid them.
