Tsunami Prophetic Song

After wrestling with God’s Spirit for a few days, Carrie sets out to record a brief video about the message He is burdening her to share. Through it all, she explains why she believes the numbers 2-3-4 keep manifesting in her every day life and how it is connected to the pending tsunami. While trying to deliver this message, the Holy Spirit interrupts declaring to her HOW He wants her to share this one. Watch the video to see what happens! Not an easy one to cooperate with or release.

After posting this video to YouTube, a subscriber emailed Carrie this screen shot regarding a notification of the tsunami video:

Also, it should be noted, Carrie discovered AFTER Abba sung through her to believers in the Carolina’s, that “Carolina”, like “Carrie”, means “songs of joy” or “songs of happiness” as well as “free man” or “free woman”. How interesting that Abba had Carrie sing many prophetic songs to various people when she lived in the Carolina’s and here His Spirit is having her sing to them once again from Texas. Additionally, it is interesting that Abba said in the song, He wanted to set His people free in the “land of liberty” and Carrie later discovers Carolina means “free man” or “free woman”. God is brilliant!!

Dear God, Can You Hear Me Now?

Many strive to hear the voice of God for themselves, but haven’t considered the fact that God may not be hearing their voice either.  In order to effectively communicate and produce positive results both parties need to be able to hear one another. In this article, we’ll investigate the possibility that God may not be hearing you and why.

dearGod

Believers are familiar with the famous verse found in James 5:16, which reads:

Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

Notice the Apostle James connects being aware of one’s trespasses and confessing them to others for the prayers of one who is considered ‘righteous’ evidently gets their prayers answered. This verse also speaks to the importance of being sensitive to the Holy Spirit or Spirit of Holiness as He strives to make us holy by revealing to us our offense (trespass/sin). After being made aware of our offense to God, by confessing our trespass/sin/guilt to others, it also helps keep us accountable.

But before we can really dig into what spiritual truth the Apostle James is revealing to us, we must remember, in order to appropriately interpret any Scripture, we need to understand the background of the author and the culture of the author’s intended audience while letting Scripture define Scripture.

http___scrolls4all.org_scrolls_wp-content_uploads_sites_6_2014_09_lithuania.clearJPGSo where did James or any of the Apostles learn these important truths they conveyed to others? What many refer to as the “Old Testament”, was referred to by Jesus, or Yeshua in His actual Hebrew name, and His Apostles as the “Law ” or the “Law and Prophets”(Matthew 5:17-19; Matthew 7:12), which were the only Scriptures they had access to at that time (Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:14-18; 1 John 2:7). After all, the “New Testament” was still in the process of unfolding and being penned through letters much less translated and packaged together for all the world to read like we have it today. So we can see from those verses (Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:14-18; 1 John 2:7), the law and prophets, the Scriptures they had from the beginning, are useful for instruction, reproof, and revealing what is right – also spoken of in the word as “righteousness”.

Now that we know Jesus / Yeshua and His Apostles’ teachings are founded on the law and prophets, or what is labeled today as the “Old Testament”, let’s look at similar verses found throughout the law and prophets, which correspond with James’ statement in James 5:16.

  • “Then they will cry out to the LORD, but He will not hear them; He will even hide His face from them at that time, because they have been evil in their deeds.” Micah 3:4 (NKJV)

Wow, so we see in Micah 3:4, the prophet Micah explains God won’t hear people who cry out to Him in their time of need because of their evil deeds. That sounds like what James was getting out when he encouraged the reader to confess their evil deeds, their guilt, their trespasses to others. Meanwhile, the “righteous” will get their prayers answered.

Check out how the Apostle Paul defines the “righteous”, or those right with God, or put another way, those who do what is right according to God:

  • “Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and LAWLESSNESS, or what fellowship has light with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:14 (NKJV)

Note the antithesis to being right with God (righteousness) is lawlessness (not obeying God’s laws) or being in the light verses continuing to live in darkness blinded by sin. For 1 John Chapter 3 reveals to us to sin is the same as lawlessness or being without God’s laws, or even more straightforward, those who don’t “practice righteousness” or God’s laws is one and the same as being without God, but rather being of the devil!

  • “Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.” I John 3:4 (NKJV)
  • “Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil..” I John 3:7-8 (NKJV)
  • “In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother.” I John 3:10 (NKJV)

Now that we know to sin or being unrighteous is being without God’s laws or not obeying God’s commands or being in the dark or of the devil, verses a person who practices God’s laws is considered righteous, being in the light, and of God, because they are demonstrating their belief in God and His Son, let’s take a look at some other verses in both the Old and New Testaments that correspond with James message in James 5:16.

  • One who turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination.” Proverbs 28:9 (NKJV)
  • “But your iniquities (trespasses against God’s laws) have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.” Isaiah 59:2 (NKJV)
  • “Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.” 1 Peter 3:7 (NKJV)
  • Let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayers; but the face of the LORD is against those who do evil.” 1 Peter 3:11-12 (NKJV)
  • Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will (His law/His Torah), He hears him.” John 9:31 (NKJV)

http___www.gospelherald.com_data_images_full_5965_the-power-of-prayerMany verses throughout both the “Old Testament” and what was said and scribed by Jesus and His Apostles later collected as the “New Testament” reveal God doesn’t hear the prayers of those who intentionally sin or intentionally break God’s laws. (To learn more about the difference between intentional and unintentional sins, read “Will We Again Perform Sacrifices? If So, Why?”)

Notice, this concept of God not hearing our prayers due to our sins is even after Jesus bled to death on a cross for our lawlessness…even after the cross and after His gift of grace. (For further reading, check out “What Exactly Did You Repent From?”)

Conversely, Scripture reveals God rewards those who hear God’s laws and obeys them. Here are a few examples:

  • “And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.” I John 3:22 (NKJV)
  • “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My  name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. If you love Me, keep my commandments.” John 14:12-15 (NKJV)
  • “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” John 15:7 (NKJV)
  • “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” 1 John 5:14 (NKJV) {read Romans 2:18; 12:1-2, to discover God’s will …His Torah)
  • Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly…But his delight is in the law of the LORD and in His law he meditates day and night…and whatever he does shall prosper…For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish.” Psalm 1:1-6 (NKJV)

In other words, dear believers in Jesus, the spiritual truth we can glean from James 5:16 as well as these other Scriptures listed above is this:

If you say you believe in Jesus / Yeshua and His Father, but refuse to hear and submit to the way and the will (see Romans 2:17-18) of Abba (Father God) found in His commandments, His law, His Torah, which is His Voice (Deuteronomy 30 ; John 10), then you should expect He will not hear your voice either. Rather, be obedient in whatever the Spirit of Holiness is teaching you through His word today and in doing so, may your prayers be heard.

Shalom and Amen,

Carrie R. Turner

Vlog: Serving God & Others Has It’s Perks

(Recorded Mar 1, 2019) Carrie and Jerry are amazed at all Abba (God/YHVH) has done..providing for their needs yet again in this foreign new land! While on a walk in this video, they not only explore a new-to-them neighborhood, but have the opportunity to pray for someone. Through it all, they once again discover serving God and others has it’s perks! Abba takes care of His kids by providing not only for their needs, but blessing them with extra perks too. As reported in previous videos that Abba said to Carrie a few weeks ago, “Just do what I tell you do, and I’ll do the rest.” He’s a good, good, Father! Have faith in whatever He asks YOU to do!

Risky Prophetic Business

For some, the topic of prophecy is uncomfortable let alone receiving or learning of specific details to manifest in the near or distant future. In this teaching, Carrie shares some of her experiences in the prophetic while comparing it to Scripture. You’ll want to grab your Bible, a pen and paper for this one! #prophecy #prophets #HearingGod #details #specifics #timeframe #prophecies #tsunami #judgment #abortion #dreams #visions #impressions #word #thussaiththeLORD

How To Discern Between True Prophets & False Ones

For those interested in learning more about prophecy, specifically how to discern between not just true prophets from false ones, but also the difference between the gift of prophecy and the office of a prophet, I pray this teaching blesses you and your relationship with the Father through His Son, Jesus/Yeshua. This video also explains why prophecies don’t always manifest. If you don’t have time to watch, keep reading below the video for the overall summary. Shalom!

“All prophets have the gift of prophecy, but not all who have the gift of prophecy are prophets.”

Gift of Prophecy vs. Prophet

Before digging into the how to discern between a true prophet and a false one, let’s discuss hearing God and the gift of prophecy.

Hearing God: Jesus explained during His ministry that He is the Great Shepherd and He is after the lost sheep of Israel (but that is an entirely different topic worth your time). See John 10.Those who believe Jesus/Yeshua is the son of God who came to take away the sins of the world become adopted into His flock as His sheep. Upon receiving the Holy Spirit, Jesus tells us we will be able to hear His voice (John 10:27).

We won’t necessarily hear His voice immediately or atleast be able to distinguish His voice instantly, but in time, as we get to know Him through His word, we will eventually start developing the ability to recognize His voice…what is from Him and what is of  Satan. So, eventually, all believers should be able to hear His voice. To learn more about hearing God, click here.

Gift of Prophecy: After one has learned how to hear the Holy Spirit for themselves, they may be activated with the gift of prophecy.  This gift is one of the many gifts of the Holy Spirit and is designed to edify, exhort, and comfort others. The various realms of prophecy, especially the ‘word of knowledge’ aspect not only encourages believers, but helps convince non-believers that God is real and wants a personal intimate relationship with each of us. The Apostle Paul explains we all should (at some point) be able to prophesy as our hearing skills and faith develops by responding in obedience to what we are hearing.  No prophecy, or spoken voice of the Spirit, will ever contradict God’s written voice found in the Bible. See 1 Corinthians 12-14. James 2:22-25.

“All prophets have the gift of prophecy, but not all who have the gift of prophecy are prophets.”

Many will have the ‘gift of prophecy’, but not all will be prophets of God, or in the ‘office’ of a prophet. Discerning the difference between a true prophet of God versus a false one, will also help you understand the difference of one who can flow in the gift but not be an actual prophet.

How to Discern Between A True Prophet Vs A False Prophet

  1. A True Prophet: WILL acknowledge both the Father and the Son (Yahweh/YHVH, as the one true living God, and His Son, Jesus Christ/Yeshua, the Messiah). Whereas, a false prophet will not. This is a very elementary principle. James 2:19; 1 John 2:22-23
  2. A True Prophet: WILL be called by God through typically a vision or dream versus their own wishful thinking. If you evaluate all the prophets of the Bible, the vast majority the LORD spoke to them through a vision, dream, or some type of visual experience. To learn more about those topics specifically, watch my teachings “You Might Be A Prophet IF” and “Learn To Discern”. Numbers 12:6
  3. A True Prophet: Does NOT want to be a prophet. Whereas a false prophet promotes themselves and their status as a prophet, their merchandise, etc. Why? Because prophets are hated, persecuted, isolated, lonely, and usually killed not to mention, carry the burden of the prophecy itself. A false prophet wants to be a prophet for fame, respect, power, and control. True prophets are humble, often isolated (especially when being called by God and refined before ministering), often lowly in position, seem peculiar or different from the world (think of David and Amos how they were just shepherds of no status and the fact that John the Baptist ate honeycomb and locusts!). False prophets want the glory and strive to be popular. They often are flashy, showy, performance driven, and driven by money. They often prophesy about their follower’s material possessions versus a heart for God. Jeremiah 20:7-10; Habakkuk 1:1-4
  4. A True Prophet: WILL most likely tell you what you NEED to hear, not what you WANT to hear. Hence, why the prophet was sent in the first place. Whereas, a false prophet will be all about telling you want sounds good to you. They can read the idols of your heart and therefore, tell you what your heart desires making you like them and that word. A true prophet’s message will be about cultivating an authentic relationship with God through Jesus, His Son, and far less about material fleshly things. Although a true prophet may at times provide an encouraging positive word if that is what God tells them you NEED to hear, it will more likely be a message of repentance, warning, or judgment. What I call a “Reflect. Correct. Direct.” type of message. Be more leery of prophets who give you words of ‘peace and prosperity’ than prophets who correct or warn you. But also remember, the gift of prophecy, in non-prophets, tends to be more encouraging. Always analyze the overall message though – does it point your heart towards an authentic relationship or fleshly things? Ezekiel 13-14
  5. A True Prophet: Will be all about “REPENT. Serve the LORD.” whereas a false prophet will be all about “RECEIVE. The Lord serves you!” Again, a true prophet could care less about your worldly goods or fleshly things and will be focused on the issues of your heart that need aligning to the Father and His Word. Jeremiah 23:9: Jeremiah 28.
  6. A True Prophet: The prophecy  of a true prophet will probably** manifest whereas a false word will fall to the ground (fail). Deuteronomy 18:18-22; Jeremiah 28:9. Jeremiah 18.

**Please note!

IF the prophecy manifests, that could be a very good indication it is of the LORD. UNLESS, the overall message of that prophet is telling you to serve the idols of your heart, another God, man’s doctrines, or more worldly things versus the One True Living God and His ways, His laws, His will!! THIS IS A TEST FROM GOD. Jesus and His Word tell us many false prophets as well as one main false prophet will arise specifically to lure you away from an authentic relationship with the Father through Jesus and surrendered obedience to God. Deuteronomy 12:32-13:10; Matthew 24; Revelation 12-13.

IF the prophecy does NOT manifest, that could be due to a few reasons:

  1. It came from the so-called prophet’s/person’s heart (imagination) not God.
  2. The person/prophet added to or subtracted from the word itself. Never do this as this will cause an inaccurate word. Just give the word if you genuinely believe it is from God and He has released you to speak such things. Don’t over-analyze it, don’t add to it to help it make sense, and don’t hold back either. Don’t make it fit what you want. Don’t get it twisted by trying to predict what it will look like. Deuteronomy 12:32
  3. The people repented or disobeyed, depending on if the prophecy was a call to repentance (much more common) or a prosperous prophecy (very rare), and so it was a prophecy conditioned on the response of the people. The end goal of all true prophets who prophesy repentance, warning, and judgment is that the prophecy NOT manifest for that means the people repented.Jeremiah 18.

To learn more about this topic, get in the Word for yourself, seek the Father and His Spirit with all your heart. You can also go to my YouTube channel to watch some of my other prophetic teachings (check out the playlists).

Shalom!
