So Jesus again said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. He who is a hired hand and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. He flees because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. - John 10:7-13 (ESV)
Kimberly Daniels has flown under the national radar for too long apparently. Daniels is actually a US Representative from Jacksonville, that actively pursues all things Trump and the NAR dominionist package of faux outrage issues. Most of this appears to be bluster and cover for her network of grifting, some of which she has had to admit to legally. In 2015 she admitted to using campaign funds for personal expenses. More recently she was busted for shuffling properties she owned to pretend they were owned by her church to avoid disclosing them. In total, she owned eight properties but seven of them were shielded by lying that the church owned them. Her claim was the church paid for all the mortgages. Even the one house in her name was not listed in her financial documents. After she got divorced, because you know, Jesus, one of the homes she claimed was owned by the church had the proceeds divided between her and her now ex-husband. She has since had to admit to filing false financial disclosures, hallelujah. While this details her grifting of people of Florida, her grift upon apostate churchgoers is in the realm of demonology, where she has written over ten books on garbage spiritual warfare that of course was published through the cesspool known as Charisma News. She has spoken as slavery being positive and made dismissive statements regarding the Holocaust. A real gem she appears to be. All of this political NAR mess aside, her theology is a hodge podge of insane demon casting with exceptionally bad theology. Oh, and she "pastors" a church. This devotional is pertaining to her article on Charisma news, linked above, entitled "Discerning Demonic Spirits Within Your Church." This set off alarms which only grew more worrisome as I read this absurd article that presents a real danger to believers who are essentially encouraged to lower the bible in their lives in favor of doctrinal grifters like Kimberly Daniels. Let us reason once more together beloved.
"One Saturday evening one of our ministry teams was called to the church for an emergency deliverance session. Carol had been released from a mental institution and was driven six hours to meet with us. We were in the parking lot when the car drove up. What I am about to tell you may be hard to believe, because I struggled with it even though I saw it with my own eyes. When they pulled onto the church grounds, the entire car began to shake. A little woman about 45 years old stepped out of the car, talking to herself. As I came closer to her I heard these words come out of her mouth: "Yeah, Kim can't cast me out. She never dealt with a demon like this before. Benny Hinn can't cast me out. You do not know who I am." We had not experienced a demon that talked this way before, and the voice coming from Carol was totally demonic. The woman was comatose, but the spirits used her body fluently. My husband and I were accompanied by two ex-witches and an ex-prostitute. We were so shocked by what we saw that we sat down and watched the demon walk around the room (through the woman's body) and quote Scriptures." - Kimberly Daniels
I call shenanigans! Seriously, this story is ridiculous and of course, unsubstantiated. You should know when someone prefaces a story by saying you will have a hard time believing it, you should probably not believe it. One thing that indicates the story is made up is the demon referencing Benny Hinn as some kind of competent religious leader. In Kimberly Daniels' circle, Hinn is probably considered a top source in deliverance but in reality, demons would know that he is on their side. There is no way they would reference Hinn like this to imply that he somehow is a respectable Christian leader that they were more powerful than. This reads like a bad joke. A liar, a prostitute and two ex-witches walk into a parking lot.
"We were all breathless! Carol's family had been in church for many generations, and she had been in church all of her life. The spirit revealed itself to us as a "religious spirit." We had not heard of such a thing. The demon mocked us and said, "I prophesy and quote Scriptures like the Son of God. Everything you can do, I can do better!" Many people get offended when I mention the religious spirit. But these spirits killed Christ. They are legitimate enemies of God. They are "demons of the letter," and 2 Corinthians 3:6 tells us that the letter kills. There is only one spirit that kills: Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). There is one thief, one murderer and one destroyer. He does not care if he uses a sawed-off shotgun or a brand-new Bible to do his dirty work." - Kimberly Daniels
I always love when false teachers quote John 10:10 incorrectly. Much of the church does as well. Read the key verses today, including the context. Are these verses speaking abut the devil? No. They are speaking against false teachers, which is why it is so ironic when false teachers quote it like Daniels does here. The thief is likened to the hireling, which Daniels clearly is. The larger point here is the clear intent of the article is going to be to speak against the made-up argument of the NAR and false teachers alike - the "religious spirit." Allow me to translate from bovine excrement to English. People who preach against the religious spirit are the likes of Bill Johnson, Kris Vallotton and nearly everyone on Charisma News. Their problem is that people use the bible to prove they are false, so their push back is to paint people who insist on using the bible as "religious" and to go even further to liken this insistence on biblical accuracy as somehow being demonic. The reason why people get upset is they know this argument is pure garbage designed to lead people away from the word of God. Religious spirits did not kill Christ. What a dumb theology. First of all, Christ said no one takes His life but he lays it down willingly. Secondly, the Pharisees zeal was not about religion but about the consolidation of power. As Jesus said, they used the letter of the law without understanding the purpose. That is not what Daniels dislikes about her critics. She dislikes being exposed for the false teacher she is. The one murdering doctrine is Kimberly Daniels. The one destroyer here, destroying people's faith in God, is Kimberly Daniels.
