‘Signs of a False Prophet’ Playlist

Over the last six weeks or so, I have developed a teaching series called ‘Signs of a False Prophet’. Jesus, or Yeshua in His original Hebrew name, said there would be many false prophets that would rise up in the last days. As one who has operated in the prophetic, been called and sent to deliver various messages from the Lord to others, this teaching series captures what I have learned along the way as well as counterfeits I have witnessed along this peculiar faith journey. The playlist consists of 12 teachings ranging from 2 minutes to 20 minutes in duration. I pray it enriches your covenant with Abba Father through His Son. Shalom!

Never Forget 9-11 or Romans 9-11

If there is one thing Americans and Israelis have in common is the unwanted hateful attention from certain populations. Americans old enough to remember the horrifying events of 9-11-01 will never forget the needless terror and murder of the innocent that tragic day.

In much different terms, but eternally important, is the call of Romans 9 -11, where the Apostle Paul beckons those who believe Jesus is the Messiah, but who are not of Jewish DNA (Gentiles) to never forget their role in God’s plan for Israel. Unfortunately, most Christians don’t realize their duty and how God desires to use them as believing Gentiles, also known as ‘grafted-in Israelites’ or likened to ‘spiritual Jews’ (Romans 2:28-29) to provoke the Jewish people to jealousy (Romans 11:11)! Are they jealous because Christianity typically teaches Jesus taught against God’s Torah? Certainly not for to the Jew, Jesus is an idolater and false prophet according to Deuteronomy 13. Would Jews be jealous of Gentile believers breaking Torah or God’s instructions for life? Certainly not for most Jews believe Gentiles only need to adhere to 7 Noahide Laws (very similar to the 10 Commandments) in order to be considered righteous – not the 613 commands of Torah as were given to the Israelites and those aligning themselves with Israel believing in the One True Living God. Would preaching a law-hating grace-loving gospel accompanied by sensational miracles said to be of the “Holy Spirit” make them jealous? Certainly not for Jews know in the new covenant, according to the prophets, God will give a new Spirit, which will cause one to WANT TO DO Torah (Jeremiah 31:31-33; Ezekiel 11:19-20,36:27) not hate Torah! So how are Christians to fulfill Romans 9 – 11? Watch this brief video to learn your role in God’s plan and how you can be part of the fullness of the Gentiles as the Apostle Paul references as do many prophets!

A Storm Is Brewing – Will You Listen to Men or Me?

This photo captures when we lived in Myrtle Beach preparing for Hurricane Irma in 2017. God told me a few weeks in advance of her arrival that a storm was coming, to get ready, and that we didn’t need to evacuate, but it would be intense. He said on 9/9 the storm would shift, which on 9/9 is when it took the western track up Florida’s Gulf Coast, and that even Charleston would be affected. Turns out Charleston, being on the northeast side of that ernormous hurricane was slammed with fires, tornados, and flooding. I told the Lord Jerry is never going to believe me, but He said, “I’ll take care of Jerry.” So about an hour later I summoned the courage to tell Jerry (considering I would need his cooperation to prepare) and he somberly replied, “I know, the Lord told me about an hour ago.” He’s a good, good Abba.

Consequently, we started preparing by creating a hurricane bin full of supplies and boarding up our windows. We warned our neighbors and management to not listen to weather reports but to board up the front office full of glass and the indoor pool full of glass. Meanwhile, the local weather kept saying we won’t be affected. At first, people thought we were crazy like Noah building the ark. But a few neighbors did also. Unfortunately, management listened to the weatherman and consequently most of the indoor pool’s large glass windows were blown in and shattered as well as the front office windows and glass above leaked heavily flooding the office for failure to board up. They were scrambling during the storm to board up from the inside. A small suspected tornado passed through picking up pool furniture slamming it into things, a huge wooden welcoming sign completely blew away never to be seen again, brick veneer pulled away from the building’s structure, etc. I also warned Charleston on social media prior to the storm and was called a false prophet, but I guess they realized otherwise when the city was affected.

After all that, the management/board of directors heeded my voice and eventually made me President until I called board members out on their fiscal corruption, then the deceitful campaigned to silence me and terminate me from the BOD. Funny thing is about 6 months in advance, the Lord also told me I would be President of that Board and it would be a test. Without me having to campaign or do any striving in of myself, the former President, who was resigning due to selling his condo, sent out a mass email to all the homeowners and the current Board campaigning for me to be his replacement due to my property management experience. So that is how I got to be President of the Board. The test was if I wanted the power/authority more than integrity…Would I comply to the corruption of the good ole boys or would I stand up for truth? Would I endure “the storm”..the backlash for what was right or love the title more? It was not fun being hated, but it was necessary. Even so, God used it all for me to not just fix up my condo, but we upgraded much needed areas around the entire resort as a board member. Months later, when Abba said, “List it NOW.”, we got a contract 10 days later and nearly doubled our money.

Moral of all this is :Always listen to God and refuse to care what mankind says.

Are You Praying?

If it doesn’t directly impact them, many people will not remember to pray for others, but just continue on in their busy lives. As #Hurricane #Dorian continues to threaten our coastlands, our people, our brothers and sisters in Messiah, may we love Abba and others, by interceding with our prayers, resources, and time as His Spirit of Holiness prompts.

Hurricane Dorian Prayers

As Hurricane Dorian approaches the Southern East Coast, may we earnestly intercede in prayer to Abba (Father God) to show mercy! In this short episode, Carrie shares some insights on intercessory prayers and implores viewers to do so on behalf of all those in Dorian’s path – especially the Carolina’s, where Carrie & Jerry recently moved from.

Torah Portion: Ekev

Did you know when Jesus / Yeshua read Isaiah 61 in the synagogue on Shabbat (Sabbath/Saturday), which we can read about in Luke 4:16-30, He was reading from that specific week’s “Haftarah” portion? For thousands of years, those of the Judaism faith have read from the Torah and Haftarah. A major part of the Jewish worship service since the days of escaping Babylonian captivity (see books of Ezra & Nehemiah), is the public reading of the Torah. For the Jewish people learned the hard way while under Babylonian captivity to forsake God’s instructions will inevitably lead to spiritual and physical bondage. The Torah is the first five books of the Bible, also known as the Law, or God’s instructions for life on HOW to love, HOW to live, and HOW to worship. 

Each week, in today’s congregations of Judaism, Messianic Judaism, and many Hebrew Roots’ congregations read a certain portion of the Torah in their services. So the whole world (of those groups) is studying the same portions in unity.

However, many years ago, circa 175 BC, when Antiochus Epiphanes conquered the temple, he outlawed the public reading of the Torah, replaced the holy artifacts with pagan gods within the temple, slaughtered pig, an unclean and abomination according to Leviticus 11, Deut 14, and Isaiah 65-66, as a means to mock God’s ordained sacrificial system, and even tormented and killed Jews for holding to their belief in the one true God and their desire to adhere to His laws. All of this was an “abomination of desolation”, which will happen again according to prophecies found in the Books of Daniel, Matthew, and Revelation. Consequently, the rabbis of those days researched and prescribed related passages of the Torah found in the Prophets to be read each week instead of the Torah during that tumultuous time. This became known as “Haftarah”, which means “conclude”.

After that horrific time, the practice of reading from the Prophets stuck so today, passages called portions from the Torah and the Haftarah, which are related are read. In Messianic Judaism (and possibly Hebrew Roots too), related portions from the Gospels are read as well. This photo captures this week’s. The Torah portion’s title is selected from the first few words of the passage. Shabbat Shalom!

Signs of a False Prophet – continued

Signs of a False Prophet

Two nights ago, I experienced a peculiar and ongoing dream of a mighty whirlwind that affected both land and sea. This storm did significant damage to various landscaping and affected my cleaning business. The dream ended with the whirlwind/waterspout picking me up after attempting to run from it down the pier. The whirlwind lifted me up into the clouds where I could see what appeared to be a heavenly type of city in the midst of the clouds. It was then I thought to myself, “I am like Elijah being mysteriously taken up in a whirlwind..” and then I awoke perplexed. Later, I interpreted the dream as a storm is coming and will affect my life as I know it, but ultimately, it will take me to new heights spiritually. Consequently, I decided to release the teaching series “Signs of a False Prophet” much faster than originally intended in the event the “storm” ends up being a literal storm…perhaps a hurricane or tornado that disrupts my life as I know it. As I type this a strong storm suddenly blew in. I am hoping my plants survive this one…I brought most of them under shelter in the cockpit of my sailboat since the last unexpected storm caused a beloved rose bush to go overboard!

Below are video teachings of the first four in this series. I pray they educate, empower, and encourage you to be discerning of the plethora of “prophetic” voices haunting various media outlets and halls of congregations.
