There was once a very good king. He was outstanding in the way in which he was head of state. He heartily embraced faith in God. His heart was courageous in the ways of My Spirit and he set his heart to seek My face.
He went out among the people, from Beersheba to the hill country of Ephraim, and brought the people back to the LORD, the God of their fathers.
In military policy, he believed in the time of peace to prepare for war. His military and religious actions were successful, as the fear of the LORD fell upon all. None made war with him. He brought the nation back, at least formally, to “the God of their fathers.”
Although personally loyal to his faith and pure of life and motive, his greatest failures lay in the precise areas of his greatest success; International relations and religious reformations.
He could not root out the unlawful. His diplomacy by alliance into intermarriage with the house of Ahab and Jezebel brought all his gains to ruin within a few years of his death.
The poisonous effect of that union, became an arrangement that was very expensive to Judah; The king supported with treasure and manpower to fund Ahab’s wars.
The king assisted in at least two fruitless campaigns with the kings of Israel. He suffered personal physical peril, and spiritual loss to himself and his kingdom. This was an ill conceived policy.
His name was “Jehovah judges” or King Jehoshaphat.
I the LORD have brought you to the valley of Jehoshaphat and I shall judge you in this valley of decision.
Corrupt alliances by deceit have come to prostitute and ride on your anointing. To prostitute your oil and wine they gain victory and prestige. Their numbers are great, they love a crowd. They corrupt your goodness by flattery. They take the advantage for their own personal gain. As I live says God, I tell you the truth, I wouldn’t even look the way of these corrupt flatterers, but because I honor your life, I will speak!
I know your works and I know your faith with patience. I see all your works and the last ones being more than the first. But I have this against you, you let the spirit of Jezebel do what she wants and that unrestrained.
She says that she is a prophetess, but she is leading my people away with her teaching. A teaching of religious mixture! Her teaching sickens me with it’s sugar sweet appeal, but in every way it is dangerous poison to My sheep.
I AM warning My people of factions who spread poisons. There is an intentional deception with Jezebel to gain spiritual power through poison by seeking to gain approachable leaders who are weak in faith and in MY Word.
I have given those time to change and turn away from her sin. But she does not want to change nor do those who are engaged with this spirit. Those who partake of her deeds and teaching will suffer greatly and the blind shall fall into a ditch.
Make no unholy alliances with those of given to change. I have said to KNOW those who labor among you, and that takes time. Tests and errors. Known and then well known. Which will it be? Be hasty and miss the way, or take the needed effort to get to know those who are among you well.
When you come into alignment with those given to change, your calamity shall rise suddenly and ruin you both. These things will be known and belong to the wise. When you say to the wicked, you are righteous how can you say something is good when it is bad and evil! Be not conned. Be not conformed to this world, but transformed by renewing your mind.
The chasm is widening, time is increasing and the masses are pressuring wanting the easy route. Do not be pressured and do not lay hands suddenly on any man releasing them into anything they want. If you do this being in agreement and associated with it; You shall be known as you are known. There is major changing and I AM elevating and establishing My leaders. This is the work of MY Spirit.
Be living epistles seen and read of all men. MY Leaders have nothing to hide and they live a more public role. Check and re check with what you associate and make alliances with, for you will be known by associations.
Time is moving fast and many false prophet, false leader of all types are being mobilized with very little known about them. Time does tell all things and be sure to know those who are among you well. Take your time and do not be intimidated. Let them call you religious, you will be proven to many to be accurate and to line up with MY Word. Protect the weak, guard and defend My sheep and lambs, says the LORD.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
