The latest from Charisma News shows how beyond the bible and reality Charismania has fallen...
For I feel a divine jealousy for you, since I betrothed you to one husband, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ. But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough. -- 2Corinthians 11: 2-4 (ESV)
The article on Charisma News jumped out at me like a sneaky squid spirit is known to do. "Prophetic Visions: Jesus Is Handing Out Blueprints to His Army of Kings " was the title and I admit I thought, "Jennifer is that you?" While Jennifer Leclaire is still the master of the theater of the absurd, this article linked above is from someone named Wai-Yee Schmidt, who apparently fancies herself a "marketplace minister." She proudly lists herself as being under the covering of another bizarre false prophet, Ryan LeStrange. So it is no wonder that this article leaves reality pretty quickly. You must understand that while this is low hanging fruit to debunk with the bible, it is also mainstream within Pentecostal circles. That thought should frighten us as the end times draw closer. That people would be easy to follow the demonic reminded me of the key verses today. Paul expressing the very same concern for the Church at Corinth. That if someone presents a different Christ or a different gospel or a different spirit then the one given already through scripture the church puts up with it readily enough. Just consider this for a moment. Jennifer Leclaire once prophesied that she was under attack from a "sneaky squid spirit." Instead of being laughed and mocked out of any serious church discussions, she continued as editor for Charisma and this past week was in the Philippines to spread her false teaching. That someone like Wai-Yee Schmidt can pay some duty to a huckster like Ryan LeStrange and voila; now she is given religious street cred is imbecilic! Let us reason together through the linked article and see the sheer lunacy being accepted today by people who are churched but clearly deceived. Do not lose sight of that over-arching point. The millions of people who fall for this garbage are the same who will stand before Christ and say "Lord Lord" from Matthew 7. They need the real Gospel because they are the new mission field.
"This past year, the Lord has been redeeming my business background to birth a unique assignment. The Lord has shown me that it is time to call out those appointed to be kings, teach them to arise and take territory in the world, outside of the church walls, for Jesus. I received the first vision on this in January, but since then there has been nothing, until I toured Israel recently with David Herzog Ministries. My time there was a prophetic awakening, saturated with visions and impartations." -- Wai-Yee Schmidt
Redeeming and birthing -- two code speak words within Charismatic circles. And shifting. Something is always shifting, usually in the heavens as something else comes into alignment. Yeah that's it. Next we see that NAR influence that believes we are supposed to take over the world for Jesus, which is supported nowhere in scripture. Of course there is the obligatory self-aggrandizement as apparently, we are not mere servants of Christ but apparently kings! The church is supposed to be in the business of worshiping God not worshipping ourselves. Israel is leveraged to lend more credibility to the nonsense that follows. Apparently Schmidt believes that she received a prophetic awakening saturated with visions and impartations. How special for her except as we shall see, these visions were not from God. The bible teaches us that Satan and his emissaries disguise themselves as angels of light.
"Vision 1. The day after my article, "The Transfer of Wealth," was published on Elijah List (Jan. 17, 2018) I had this vision: Jesus was wearing a long golden robe studded with gems and precious stones. There was a boundless crowd standing before Him. He was throwing out many crowns into the masses (Rev. 19:12: "on His head are many crowns.") There were crowns for entrepreneurs, CEOs, investment experts, real estate moguls, tech innovators, actors, artists, musicians, educators and last but not least, politicians. However, many of these crowns fell to the wayside, into the puddles of mud and onto the ground. Most of the crowd was either dodging the crowns flying towards them or standing there frozen, like a deer in headlights. One or two courageously lunged forward to catch the crowns." -- Wai-Yee Schmidt
Just so we understand what we are dealing with, I looked up her transfer of wealth article. It was an unintelligible hodge-podge of numerology designed to make the reader believe that God is about transfer the wealth from all of those unbelieving heathens to good Christina people like us. Ugh. How did she receive this direct download from the throne room? Well the Dow Jones had closed that day at 25,075 and her license plate has 757 in it as well and dontchya know that 7 is the number for perfection and maturity while 5 is the number of grace? This apparently means that God is calling for all mature believers to reach through the open window into heaven's storehouse and take what we want in this opportunity of wealth transfer. Just as an aside, God apparently also told her that we as Christians we were designed to own real estate. I kid you not beloved. She actually published this and the Elijah List and her mentor Ryan LeStrange promoted her.
Back to this false prophecy however and we see that Schmidt references Revelation 19:12, which is the prophetic scene of Christ's return. Solid orthodoxy knows that the crowns belong to Him. They are His. He is the King of Kings. We are his servants. Not so in the mind of the depraved where Jesus tosses His crowns to us! These crowns apparently represent the carnal assignments we are supposed to undertake on earth. But our poor Savior! He cannot accomplish His own purposes if we do not catch the crowns correctly! What a powerless God Wai-Yee serves! Sarcasm aside, how arrogant is this theology? The 24 elders cast their crowns back to their Savior but Wai-Lee Schmidt believes God casts them back to her.
"The Lord revealed that most were paralyzed because they felt unworthy to catch the gem-studded crowns. They didn't think they were good enough to assume the identity of kings. The few who caught their crowns started picking up the other crowns and collected as many as they could, like little kids picking up candy falling out of a birthday pinata. Remember Matthew 25:29a? " For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance." I have pondered this vision and shared it through my Kings and Wealth Conference in May. Otherwise, Vision 1 was on the prophetic back burner. 1 Corinthians 13:9 states that prophecy is revealed in part. In time, more was unveiled. Nine months later in Israel, I received Parts 2 and 3 and felt the urgency to release them." -- Wai-Yee Schmidt
Apparently, this vision is so demonic it requires three parts. So let me see if I have this right. Jesus decides to cast His own crowns upon His creation because we are supposed to be kings. They each carry certain roles, such as CEO, investment expert or real estate mogul. Most refuse to try and catch them because they correctly feel they are not worthy but the ones that did catch them then turn and pick up the other crowns? I thought the crown had a role for the person it was intended for! Instead if you are greedy you can be an investment banker and real estate mogul! Does anyone else have a serious problem with this? So the more selfish and self-centered you are -- the more crowns you can gobble up! Absolute narcissistic blaster being passed off as a Word from God!
"Vision 2. The moment I physically placed my hands on the Western Wall, I saw numerous rows of golden crowns studded with gems, diamonds and pearls, with a long line of kings getting ready for the coronation. I heard pulsating drums, flutes and music fit for a king's procession. At the same time, there was massive bloodshed. The kings were warring, battling to conquer and taking territory.
Vision 3. On Oct. 3, 2018, we were at Bethel, where David Herzog taught extensively that there is an open heaven's portal. I got to experience that firsthand. As soon as I laid my head down on a flat rock, a myriad of flickering, fast-moving images rushed at me. I saw a massive temple with enormous steps paved in gold leading up to it. Then I saw an army of kings, not only draped but dripping in gold, ascending the massive steps and heading toward the temple. Jesus was crowned and dressed in gold. Blueprints were rapidly being handed out to the kings, one after another. Books, volumes, instructions, and STRATEGIES were being distributed. I saw calculators in the dark with hands typing on them furiously." -- Wai-Yee Schmidt
Beloved, there is no open heaven portal. This is more nonsense from the folks at Bethel that like to sell false signs and lying wonders. It is clear by this point that Wai-Yee Schmidt is utterly compromised with this cabal of false teachers. Bethel teaches that you can prophesy by using Eastern meditation tricks such as emptying your mind. Students are taught that the first thing that pops into their mind is God speaking to them and must be uttered prophetically. This is how they even teach their worship leaders! Now in reality what is happening is they are violating scripture that says God has given us a sound mind. Only the devil wants our minds empty. The bible also teaches us that our hearts not just wicked but deceitfully wicked. Our hearts LIE to us all of the time. So more often than not it is our lying deceitful heart that provides what just pops into our heads. Or the devil himself. I do not doubt that Wai-Lee had this vision of blueprints and strategies it just did not come from God. How do I know that? Because NAR dominionism is pure heresy. God is not raising up and army of kings to conquer the seven mountains of culture. He is not orchestrating a great wealth transfer or casting His crowns to you so you can become rich, for Jesus of course.
"The Call to Emerging Kings and Healing of the Divide between Kings and Priests. A message is emerging and crystallizing as I attempt to piece the three visions together. For too long, believers have been enveloped by lies of unworthiness resulting in fear and paralysis in taking the world for kingdom purposes. The word "kings" not only refers to political leaders, as we commonly understand it, but to us as God's born-again children having the identity and DNA of kings. Jesus is the King of kings (Rev. 19:16). The words "success" and "wealth" have been thought taboo in Christian circles for too long. The born-again CEO living for kingdom purposes is rare. The idea of believers rising up to be successful and to take leadership in the world (in media, business, government and so on.) has been unthinkable. Contrary to the undisputed mandate of dominion in Genesis 1:26 to be fruitful and multiply, to fill the earth and subdue it, to have dominion over everything on the earth, many find wealthy Christians offensive." -- Wai-Yee Schmidt
Sigh. Genesis does not say to take dominion over the seven cultural mountains. This is the tale of the creation of man after all of the animals were created. The dominion was meant to be over the animals, not other people.
Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." -- Genesis 1:26 (ESV)
To take this verse and pretend it means Christians are commanded to take over the seven cultural mountains is an assault to scripture. The reason why it is uncommon to find a CEO living life for Jesus is not because of the fear of riches from Christians but rather the sense of independence and being self-made from the rich. Jesus Himself once lamented how hard it would be for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. I sometimes want to scream at these dominionist NAR folks -- READ THE BIBLE! The bible says very clearly that this world is passing away. We need to understand what is going on spiritually. These people are reprobates. They are not saved and pursue this world because they love this world. They try to drag the church into relevance with this world and we should want nothing to do with the likes of Bill Johnson, Mike Bickle, Michael Brown, and the entire lot of them. Jesus does not need our help with anything; let alone taking over the seven mountains of Satan's culture. Schmidt concludes:
"It is time to call out and manifest the DNA that God has placed in believers, the DNA of kingship. it's time for kings, or kings-to-be, to receive blueprints, strategies from heaven, and take up the high call of heaven-mandated disruption, to remove the "high places" and implement God's plans in the world. In Vision 3, the calculators in the dark represent tapping into hidden riches (Isa. 45) and diverting wealth into the kingdom from the world. Finally, in Vision 3, the kings heading up to the temple represent a healing of the unspoken, longstanding divide between kings and priests. First, kings or successful Christian leaders in world positions are scarce. Second, the priests have not been able to shepherd the kings. Many Christian business or political leaders have trouble connecting with church leaders, who generally have little or no experience in the world. Those who have success or wealth have endured so much religious condemnation or witnessed poor church financial stewardship that they don't trust church leadership anymore. Kings and priests have to come together. The divide has to heal. The time is coming for kings to return to the temple, to the place of worship. In order for the glory to fill the temple as described in 2 Chronicles 7:3, the kings must be submitted to God and be united and aligned with the priests. We are, after all, a nation of kings and priests." -- Way-Yee Schimdt
Beloved, God has given us a blueprint filled with His strategies. It is called the bible. The point Way-Yee Schmodt and the NAR keep missing is that in order for absurd prophecies like this to be true then God muts be a liar. When He warned to not add to the bible He must have been lying. Or maybe He just forgot to tell us this stuff about taking over mountains, making Christian movies, believers should own real estate, that we have the DNA of kings, and of course caculators in the dark secretly moving money from the world into the kigdom. When God realize he forgot to tell us these things in the bible, He reached out immediuately to Way-Yee Schmidt.
Except He really didn't now did He? God is not a man that He would forget beloved for milennia only to let someone in on the secret who believes that how the Dow Jones closes equals a message straight from heaven. Yet this is theater of the absurd the modern charismatic church has become in these last days. Every day a new shiny object to lead people away from the Word of God. Sneaky squids, wealth transfers and caluclators in the dark. Oh my!
Oh my indeed.
