Baal-ogna! Wrong Source for the Prophet

We live in the last days. There are thousands of false prophets in America today. Their source of knowledge is not from God but they say they have heard from God. What is their source of knowledge? Jeremiah said about the false prophets of his time:

“They prophesied by Baal and caused My people Israel to err.” (23:13) They speak a vision of their own heart, not from the mouth of the Lord. (23:16) “I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran. I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. (23:21) “I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’ “How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart, “who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbor, as their fathers forgot My name for Baal. (23:23-27)

Many false prophets today just speak from their own heart and have not heard from God. Some have dreams and say they are from God when they are not. However in this article I wish to share how the modern false prophet is receiving his source of knowledge by Baal. These same prophets are so blinded by deceit that they do not know that their messages are from the Evil One himself, Satan.

Today false prophets are receiving their messages from the spirit world. This spirit world is the world of demons. This spirit world is the same universal source of knowledge from which the new age witches, chanellers, and sorcerers receive their knowledge. Not only are false prophets today receiving messages from the wrong source, they are preaching that their knowledge is from God. Beware! I wish to give you three examples of false prophets today that receive their messages from the spirit world. This spirit world is not our source of information for the prophetic gift nor the prophetic office.

Mark Virkler

When Mark meditates he stills his mind just like a New Ager. When we prays it is better to not think of God, says Mark. Again he says; “Thinking about God could constitute reasoning.” He takes the same position as New Agers and says that as we meditate we move “internally from a left-brained posture to a right-brained posture.” He admits that angels, demons, the Holy Spirit, the omnipresent God and Jesus exists around him. Now he had learned to see into this spirit world and has heard from God. Mark says: “I have received no instruction on how to open the eyes of my heart to the spirit world. You may discover that inner visions come so easily, you are tempted to reject them thinking they’re a product of your mind. But if you record them, you will soon recognize that they can only be from God.” How does recording visions help you recognize their source?

This scientific method of meditation has become a way into the presence of God where Mark says that he hears and sees visions from God. Baal-ogna! This is receiving a message from Baal, the evil one, the deceiver, and the liar. His thoughts only come from the inward self that transcends the material world and into an altered state of consciousness. God does not reveal himself in such a manner.

The Whole Process of a Prophetic Word by Larry Randolf

Larry Randolf says: “Revelation is the first state in the development of prophecy. This is where initial contact is made with the spirit world and prophetic information is obtained.” I ask you, where in the New Testament did Jesus teach the disciples how to enter into a spirit world to receive from God? Never!

Randolf also admits that in this state of sensitivity to revelatory communication that man is also subject to human opinions, “soulish impressions, and even familiar spirits.” Would God in heaven lead his people into such a state of mind whereby man could be confused by familiar spirits? Never! Jesus taught the disciples to pray in the Lord’s Prayer: “Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”

Because there are mixed voices in this spirit world, Larry Randolf says that he must decide what is from God and what isn’t from God. Believe me. When God speaks, you will know His voice and it will not be confusing. Jesus said in John’s gospel, “My sheep will know my voice.” When God spoke to a prophet of Bible days there was no confusion and doubt as to who was speaking. If you have to wonder or question if something is from God then it is not.

After deciding what is from God, Larry Randolf says that he now must give his dream an interpretation. Even Daniel could not interpret dreams. Only God could because only God knew the future. Do you want to be lead by the words of a prophet who had to discover what the interpretation is for a dream that came from the spirit world? Baal-ogna! … Beware!

The Prophecy of Rick Joyner

Rick Joyner in his latest book called “The Call” claims that he receives messages from the dead saints and prophets. He says:

“I also understand how the nature of some of these revelations would cause theological problems for some. One of these would certainly be the way that I met and talked with many Old and New Testament characters, as well as prominent people in church history who are now dead. There are biblical precedents for this such as when the Lord talked to Moses and Elijah. We also have the example when the apostle John fell down to worship the angel in Rev 22:9. The angel rebuked John, declaring that he too was a fellow servant of his brethren. Many have understood this to indicate that this was one of the saints who had gone on to be with the Lord.” P19

We are not Christ who is able to communicate with all spirits. Elijah never died but went to heaven in a whirlwind. Moses’ body was never found. It says that the Angels buried him but it’s possible that he never died either but was taken up to heaven. Joyner’s argument from Revelation is so ridiculous that it needs no reply.

Talking to the dead is what the witches and wizards do. God has forbidden one to consult with familiar spirits.

“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD:” Deut 18

How can Joyner now justify what God had condemned? There is also no catholic mystic that can justify their visitations with dead saints or prophets. This only means one thing. Their experience is not from God. Their visitations are not of God. They know not the voice of God for God does not contradict Himself. Beware of false experiences. An experience no matter how convincing, it is may not be from God.

What does it mean to prophesy by Baal? The story of Balaam explains. (Numbers 22-25) Moab was threatened by the multitudes of the children of Israel so he called for Balaam who lived in Pethor in Mesopotamia later called Babylon. He was a diviner. He was seeker of familiar spirits. He was rich because of his curses that he pronounced. He was a prophet of Baal. The Moabites came with their divination gifts for Balaam and took him to the high places where they worshipped Baal to offer sacrifice and pronounce a curse upon Israel. But the scriptures tell us:

“Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought! ”

Balaam went three times to seek familiar spirits. Each time the God of Israel intervened. Balaam could not curse Israel whom God had blessed and chosen. Finally Balaam went to God and did not seek enchantments as he had done before. He then prophesied from God.

And when Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel, he went not, as at other times, to seek for enchantments, but he set his face toward the wilderness. 2And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel abiding in his tents according to their tribes; and the spirit of God came upon him. 3And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said: 4He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open: 5How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O Israel! 6As the valleys are they spread forth, as gardens by the river’s side, as the trees of lign aloes which the LORD hath planted, and as cedar trees beside the waters. 7He shall pour the water out of his buckets, and his seed shall be in many waters, and his king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted. 8God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows. 9He couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a great lion: who shall stir him up? Blessed is he that blesseth thee, and cursed is he that curseth thee. Num 24

There was a difference between the way Balaam sought God the last time. God does not give prophecy to a man that seeks familiar spirits. The Spirit of God comes upon a man that has his eyes opened and his heart turned to God. The source of the voice of the Holy Spirit can never be found in the same spirit world where evil voices are also found. If you are a true prophet of God the origin of the message should never have to be discerned. The voice of the Holy Spirit never brings confusion.

The modern prophet says the following to determine the source of the gift.

“You are to ask yourself: Is it from the Spirit of God or from Satan or from the Spirit of truth or the spirit or error?” Hamon, Prophets Pitfalls and Principles. Pg.121

What is wrong with this statement? We should never have to question the source of true prophecy. God never leaves the prophet in doubt. He will always be 100 percent sure when God speaks and his prophecies will be 100 percent accurate. The real prophet does not depend upon unusual receptivity into the spirit world but yields only to the Holy Spirit.

How can a true vessel of God, who claims to be a prophet, become subjected to false prophecy as is written here? Be not deceived. Do not fall for the Baal-ogna of false prophets today.
