QUESTION:  If you are desperate to hear God and think He is wanting you to do something, and yet feel dread about doing whatever that is, is it possible that because of the fear and/or dread, that a prophetic person can pick up on that and prophesy that very thing that you dread?? Like a counterfeit prophetic word?


ANSWER:  Yes the demonic realm feeds upon fear and can release counterfeit revelations to anyone.  The Lord does not work through fear, and that opens the door to the demonic.  Fear is the opposite of faith.  God will prepare your heart to receive His Word, going before, behind and along side of His Words to bring you into the right place.  The road would be umpired through His PEACE.   


Phil 4:6-7 NKJV

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.



QUESTION:  Can the revealing of one’s past, like in a word of knowledge  inspire a counterfeit prophesy? 


ANSWER:  Yes.  I was once in a small meeting where I knew each person very well.  There was a visiting evangelist who did not know anyone, and he prophesied over these people.  He was receiving knowledge about people’s past by way of jobs, ministries and Words they had already received.  Then instead of speaking them as words of knowledge about their past, he prophesied these things as future destinies.  The evangelist had come out of a witchcraft background.  I did not know if the words of knowledge about these people’s pasts were given to him by the demonic and he falsely prophesied them as future.  Or if the words of knowledge were inspired by the Lord and this person did not realize that he was receiving past revelations and they had already come to pass...  and he was misunderstanding his gift and how to use it to increase faith for something else the Lord wanted to say. 


One of the most remarkably accurate words given was about this lady’s past ministry.  He explained exactly what she had already done in her life as a single person and said that she would be doing this in the future ministry.  He did not know she was now married and would never choose that ministry due to being married.  At the time of the prophesy, she also had a disease and died shortly after.


Jer 14:14  NKJV

And the LORD said to me, "The prophets prophesy lies in My name. I have not sent them, commanded them, nor spoken to them; they prophesy to you a false vision, divination, a worthless thing, and the deceit of their heart.


Zech 10:2 NKJV

For the idols speak delusion; The diviners envision lies, And tell false dreams; They comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; They are in trouble because there is no shepherd.



QUESTION:  It is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit to say that the Spirit behind a prophesy, a person’s anointing, a meeting or even a revival is counterfeit, if it is truly Holy Spirit inspired?


ANSWERYES.  The Holy Spirit does not defend Himself but testifies of Jesus Christ.    It is a serious offense and grieves the Father, Jesus and the Spirit and will not be forgiven and in danger of eternal damnation. 


The following passage is connected all together within context of the same message.  It clearly reveals exactly what blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is:


Matt 12:24-32 NKJV

Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, "This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons."  25 But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.  26 If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?  27 And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges.  28 But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you.  29 Or how can one enter a strong man's house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.  30 He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad.    31 "Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.  32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come. 


Mark 3:28-30 NKJV

"Assuredly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they may utter;  29 but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation" —  30 because they said, "He has an unclean spirit."


1 John 5:16  NKJV

If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin which does not lead to death, he will ask, and He will give him life for those who commit sin not leading to death. There is sin leading to death. I do not say that he should pray about that.


John 15:26-27  NKJV

"But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. 



QUESTION:  Can one hear things that seem to lead one way but yet his insides feel another?  Do you think this is soul vs. spirit, or does God ever move in such a way when one is seeking direction?  (In the past I have gotten quite discouraged because of striving to hear Him. The striving can bring confusion, I think.)


ANSWER:  Yes the soul and spirit can be contrary to one another.  The soul is a person’s thoughts, will and emotions.  Sometimes one can hear his own thoughts and the Spirit within him is contrary to those thoughts. 


It is also true that demons can also speak thoughts and emotions to a person that will also be contrary to hearing the Holy Spirit’s leading.


The Lord allows everything in our lives to surface so that it will be washed and aligned with Who He is, with scripture and to change us into His image.


Seeking direction can lead to wavering.  It is better to give each detail to the Lord in prayer, and then leave it there and then allow Him to bring you Words, confirmations and direction through natural events. 


James 1:5-8 NKJV

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.


QUESTION:  Do you think a religious spirit can make a person feel that "you should...." or "you ought to...." and it seems like the Lord's leading but it is a religious spirit?  Maybe even a person could experience this where the enemy is trying to rush you to settle for something instead of waiting for what the Lord has?

ANSWER:  A religious spirit makes someone feel guilty and accused if they do not perform properly. 


The enemy pushes.  God draws.  The Lord used the parable of separating the sheep from the goats.  The sheep follow and are meek, the goats push and ram heads. 


The shepherd walks before them and draws them out of their place, and they follow Him.  However a goat leader would be like a goat, where he goes behind and butts or pushes with his head, or kicks them to move,


John 10:3-5  NKJV

To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.  4 And when he brings out his own sheep , he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.


Matt 25:32-34 NKJV

All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats .  33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 

QUESTION:  In a major crossroads have you ever experienced where God has asked you to do something (big decision) without any confirmations?  

ANSWER:  It is not safe to make a big decision without being affirmed by God.  His ways are to WAIT upon Him.   It is always wise to wait for God to send 2-3 witnesses of His truth for this is a part of His standards for truth.


Matt 18:16   NKJV

'by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.'


Matt 18:20 NKJV

For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them." 


1 Cor 14:28-30 NKJV

Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge.


Deut 19:15-16 NKJV the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established.


1 Tim 5:18-20 NKJV

Do not receive an accusation against an elder except from two or three witnesses.
