Last month Nicole Moore received a troubling revelation from the Lord regarding church leaders.
This is the time of Acts 2:17 “And it will be in the last days,” says God, “that I will pour out My Spirit on all humanity; then your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.” I am having spontaneous thoughts and pictures come into my head while praying, and then they come to pass.
Last month the Holy Spirit said to me, “There are preachers who have secretly stored up food for themselves, and not disclosed it to their churches.”
I even know who some of them are. Then on November 19th, confirmation came from Holy Spirit while I was watching The Jim Bakker Show and he said the same thing.
Pastors, who are placed into this position of responsibility, of being watchmen on the wall, and shepherds of the flocks placed into their care, will have the blood of the sheep upon their hands if they do not warn them to prepare. The same food that they have stored up for their own blessing will be turned into a curse for them.
“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.” (Ezekiel 33:6)
These same pastors are thinking that when disaster strikes, the sheep will still be attending their churches and giving into their pockets. The surprise to them will be that it will completely turn around: Many in their congregations will leave, and the Underground Church will begin to emerge.
Preachers who have done this and not warned their flocks or encouraged them to prepare in any way, physically or spiritually, are despicable. They have no care for their congregations at all, just for the money they give.
16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, ‘The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:
17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
20 But God said unto him, “Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?”
21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God. (Luke 12:16-21 KJV)
Such preachers should repent while there may be time. There is time – up until the moment they step into eternity, but when will that be? If they do not repent, it is likely to be sooner than later.
My advice would be to focus heartily on the change-behavior aspect of repentance, and immediately begin warning and helping their congregations to prepare themselves spiritually and physically. In so doing, they may yet be used of God in the salvation of lost souls, every one of whom counts.
1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.”
(John 10:1-6 KJV)
Some of these preachers are those who climbed into the sheepfold by some other way; they did not enter through the door of Christ. They have been con men, thieves, and robbers from the outset, deciding to get into this “religious racket” for purely selfish gains. Never saved, they are headed to hell and don’t know it, because they never believed it exists. Unless they repent and turn with their whole spirit, soul, and body to the Lord, they will be judged.
7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. (John 10:7-13 KJV)
Some of these preachers had good enough intentions, but never quite got around to living the way Jesus showed them – or inviting Him into their hearts. They know about Jesus, but they don’t know Jesus. Or perhaps they pursued salvation at one point in their lives, but the “cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in choked the word, and it became unfruitful.” (Mark 4:19 KJV, [verb tense changed].) They too are rapidly losing what time is left for them to get right with God.
The “wolf” in John 7:12 is now representing any disaster, any demonic attack that God uses as a shaking. Just as the wolf of persecution in the first-century church scattered the flock and spread the gospel, so now persecution and disaster will scatter the flock, spread the gospel, launch the underground church, and bring revival.
If you are any of the pastors who are the subject of this post, repent while you can! Then do what God’s word tells you to do.
Here are a few things we can do about this:
- Warn any preachers we know – especially those who might be described in this post. Remember Ezekiel 33:6, quoted above. If we know and do not warn, the preachers’ blood may be on our hands.
- Forgive them!
- Pray for God’s mercy and protection, especially for the saints under attack. Pray that the disaster is limited in scope, and only large enough to accomplish God’s purposes in allowing it to occur, the salvation of lost souls, bringing people into everlasting relationship with Him.
- Pray for revival, even praying that we might be an agent of revival. God has revealed that, unlike revivals of the past, this revival is centered in “all” (all who cooperate) the body-of-Christ people, not a geographic location or one particular person. That is how it is sweeping the world.

Debra Walker enjoyed dreams and visions from God beginning at some pre-school age without knowing it. (She was told that she “daydreamed.”) After turning her back on Him as a prodigal teenager, she finally paid attention as He persistently wooed her back to Himself. She heard the true gospel and gave her life to Christ again in 1991. Her fire for God quickly faded, and it wasn’t until a few short years ago, when she realized how many times He had supernaturally saved her life, that she began to get serious about having a relationship with Him. Praise and thank God for His mercy! She is actively involved in intercessory prayer, writing for the Lord, and small prayer & Bible study groups. The photo dates from 1999, but is her favorite.
