You can see the sloppy agape training she has received. This "buddy Christ" heresy is rampant at churches within the NAR such as Bethel. It stems from not understanding John 15:15, which is Jesus saying that He now calls his disciples friends. What they always ignore is the previous verse where he clearly states that if we are His friend then we will do as He commands. People like Ashley Gronholm use our carnal definition of friendship and apply it to God. In doing so, she trivializes and humanizes it and God. Let me be clear beloved. If your relationship with God is not one of Lord and servant, then you are not in relationship with God. He is not our buddy. He is our Master, which is why we ought to want to do as He commands. The more we read His word the better we understand Him and what He wants. By doing so, we grow in Christ and closer to God but that does not mean it is like tuning a radio. Gronholm uses language like this so that she can justify the voices in her head and wickedly deceitful heart as "hearing from God."
"This last year in January, the Lord gave me the most spectacular vision I've ever had in life. He showed me dancing in a golden ballroom with Him, with a beautiful jeweled gown. When He would spin me around in the room the flame would come from the hem of my dress. It was all the glory of Jesus and we were just having the most incredible time together. In another moment, Jesus and I were on a chariot of fire and we were circling the globe. We were circling the globe and I began to see pockets of fire all over the world. It wasn't destruction. I heard Him say, 'That's My glory coming over Africa, over India, over Pakistan, over the United States.' God's glory was about to fall. Then I saw many angels shooting arrows of fire down into the earth igniting revivals. The revivals were a response to prayer. Then I saw golden bridges connecting nations and continents. We were riding over those bridges on a white horse." - Ashley Gronholm
I give her credit for at least saying this was just a vision unlike others such as Walker-Smith who swear they receive waking visitations. The problem of course is the lunacy of this vision. Jesus is not your dancing partner. He is not your date to the Grand Ball. He is not going to travel with you around the world in a chariot of fire. We once again see the humanizing of God when Gronholm admits that her and the creator of the entire universe were just having the most incredible time! Hashtag - Jesus is my BFF! The sloppy agape crowd is going to be very disappointed when they find out what end time fire really means. Just read the bible! This nonsense is not coming to pass! This world will pass away, and the nations will be judged! You will not be riding over golden bridges on white horses with the Son of God! When the bible speaks about scratching itching ears this is what it is referring to! Dancing with Jesus in bejeweled gowns and angels shooting fire arrows of revival. Time is running out for this world and this kind of idiotic distraction will only consign more people to hell.
"Gronholm has now been able to minister to over 118 nations through media, spreading revival fire and the glory of the Lord. And she has launched a free ministry training center you can hear about. Listen to my conversation with Ashley on Adventures in the Spirit with Jared Laskey and receive activation in hearing God and prophesying." - Jared Laskey
No Jared. She has spread her false prophecies and teachings to 118 nations and you have helped her. I would be very worried about that if I were you. There is no such thing as "activation" for prophets or prophesying. There is only the word of God and those who violate it like Ashley Gronholm. Maybe she has the best of intentions but we do not have the time to parse that out. She needs to marked and avoided as well.
