The body of Christ has cancer. What a shocking and horrible claim to make regarding the body of our Lord, but this is the exact phrase I continue to hear as I stand in the council of the Lord. As we know, when someone is diagnosed with cancer, it typically is located in a specific area of the body. I believe I have heard from God that the body of Christ indeed has cancer, but I do not believe God means that ALL parts of the body have cancer.
As I have wept before Him at His diagnosis of parts of the body of Christ, I have cried out and begged Him to tell me how bad the cancer is. In what stage is the cancer? Is it curable? What exactly is the “cancer”?
God continues to quicken my spirit to 2 Timothy 2:15-19 as Paul says to Timothy,
15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.
16 But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness,
17 and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus,
18 men who have gone astray from the truth saying that the resurrection has already taken place, and they upset the faith of some.
19 Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness.”
The specific cancer God has revealed to me that parts of the body of Christ have is what the Scripture calls a “scoffing spirit.” 2 Peter 3:3-4 says, “Know this first of all, that in the last days scoffers will come with their scoffing, following after their own lusts saying, “Where is the promise of His coming?”
God said to me,
“Beware of a scoffing spirit that is spreading like cancer in My body concerning the return of my Son Jesus. There will be false teachers, prophets, and apostles that will rise in the earth that will scoff at these last days and claim that My Son has already returned and will not come again. They will not teach on the reality of hell, the fear of My name, nor the urgency of the hour that you live in. They are killing the zeal and passion that I’m desiring to arouse in my Bride prior to the sending of My Bridegroom Son. You must look for those who accurately handle My word of truth.
In order to eradicate the cancer from the body, I am raising up apostolic and prophetic messengers that will cry aloud and spare not. They will challenge and confront these false apostles, prophets, and teachers like never before. As the Scriptures say, the faith of many will be upset over this growing cancer in My body.
The cancer is not only limited to the teaching that My Son has already or will not return, but also the scoffing spirit will reject the call for urgency and holiness in the body. You are about to witness the highlighting, focus, and emphasis of the return of My Son in the earth like never before. I’m going to mark and grip messengers with My holy fire that will leave them blessed with groaning and travail. You will see two contending movements that will rise in the body in the days ahead, says God. One movement will seek to pacify and put the body to sleep as the cancer spreads and another opposing movement will cry out for the return of My Son Jesus and warn the body of their need to be sober and alert in these days that you live in,” says the Lord.
I want to sound the alarm in the body of Christ and warn you to watch out for false apostles, teachers, and prophets who are claiming and will claim that there is no second coming of Jesus Christ. A scoffing spirit concerning these last days that we live in is the cancer that will attempt to spread throughout the body of Christ in the days ahead. Look for a contending movement and burst of wildfire to break out in other parts of the body concerning the return of Jesus Christ and the reality of hell and what awaits those who are not ready. A hunger for the harvest fueled by the second coming of Jesus is being released in the earth. The fear of the Lord and waves of holiness and preparation for the Bridegroom will mark many messengers and church communities in 2018 and beyond. The oil of lovesickness if coming!
Absaloms on the Loose
The Lord began to talk to me about the spirit of Absalom that is upon some in the body of Christ who are attempting to expand their ministries through self-promotion and attaching themselves to the church leaders and the generals of this generation. (2 Samuel 15)
I felt an extreme urgency from God that He is desiring to warn the generals of multiple large movements in the body of Christ to be on guard against Absalom’s in your midst who through self-promotion and flattery will attempt to steal the hearts of the people God has called you to minister to. These Absaloms on the loose will refuse to be tested, consecrated, and processed. They will sow confusion, discord, and strife in networks, churches, and gatherings. Having the appearance of being the real deal in their speech and outward actions, inwardly they are full of pride and selfish ambition. God specifically showed me a “wannabee” spirit that rests upon the Absaloms that are on the loose. They want the platform and recognition, but are unwilling to pay the price and wait their turn for promotion. They force doors of ministry open and constantly use the platform and relationships they have with others as a point of leverage in conversations and gatherings.
We must pray that the Absaloms on the loose will be exposed in the body of Christ in 2018. Many generals that lead movements and church leaders are in danger of being deceived and misled by Absaloms. Many saints are in danger of being deceived by the Absaloms on the loose into believing they are tried and tested leaders when they are not. Beware!
