Psychic Readings, The Confused & The Powerless

Deut. 18:20-22 ~ 20-But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. 21-And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? 22-When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
Of late there has been a huge controversy over the apparent fraud perpetrated by one "Prophet" Brian Carn. Evidently, Mr. Carn took it upon himself to use a prediction of a psychic in a 2015 New Year's Eve service in which he rendered, nearly verbatim, predictions from the psychic, claiming that he was speaking from, or had received his words from the Lord. Not only did he use the psychic words, but nearly none of the so called "prophecies" came to pass. All of this is problematic and calls into question Mr. Carn's credibility not only as a prophet, but also as a servant of God.

Evidently, Carn recently called the actions of LeAndria Johnson into question I suppose calling on pastors to boycott her ministry. This evoked quite a carnal response from Lexi "Holy Ghost Enforcer" Allen, who berated Carn, calling him 'Nigga" and saying that LeAndria was "my girl" and that he had no business even speaking negatively against her. (See video below)

Right Relationships & The Restoration Of Marriage Pt. 4

As Continued From My Facebook Series On 5 Things You Must Do For A Fulfilling Relationship In Marriage, Church, And With The People In It.   

#5 ~ SPEND TIME WITH FAMILY, ESPECIALLY ONES OWN SPOUSE AND CHILDREN WITHOUT RESERVATION, INSTEAD OF BEING A PART OF THE LATE NIGHT, RESTAURANT AFTER SERVICE CROWD.

#6 ~ SECONDLY, DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT LUNCHES, DINNERS, TRAVEL OR SUCH THE LIKE WITH MEMBERS OF THE OPPOSITE SEX (MARRIED OR NOT) WITH OR WITHOUT SPOUSAL CONSENT.

This is probably the genesis of most problems within the modern church. Many times individuals, believe that spending time with the "sheep" outside of the service is a good thing. Many times however, the prevailing logic is that it doesn't matter if their spouse is involved or not, because, after all, the "intentions" are good. There is a saying that "the pathway to hell is paved with good intentions!"

ACCESS + TIME = RELATIONSHIP

It is not a good thing when members of the opposite sex have unfettered access to married people. It is even more significant, when in the context of the church, that access infringes on personal and family time. eg: Receiving a call from a member during vacation or a family moment is always bound to kill the moment, especially when one feels "obligated" to answer or address issues. Some say that access is a good thing and part of the ministry and that they are obligated to the people of the church above and beyond normal limitations. I have personally fallen victim to this, and have lived to say that nothing is further from the truth!

Right Relationships & The Restoration Of Marriage Pt. 3

#3~ DON'T ALLOW YOUR FAMILY TO SUFFER MATERIALLY BASED ON "PEOPLE PROMISES" 
AND
#4 ~ PURSUE OPPORTUNITIES THAT WILL ALLOW AND FACILITATE GROWTH BOTH ECONOMICALLY, SPIRITUALLY, EDUCATIONALLY, AND SOCIALLY.

I have enclosed 2 thoughts in this particular admonishment, and since both are centered around the same concepts I thought that we should look at both ideas on one page. The issues center around personal/family growth and development and accountability. The key here is that there is no reward or benefit in allowing yourself and your loved ones to suffer unnecessarily at the hands of the "whims" of people. Remember, there is a difference between God promises and people promises.  

In this life we will have tribulation. That is certainly a fact and each individual shall all run into their fair share...however, there is a difference between suffering due to a move of God and suffering due to the need or requirement to be associated with and tied to people. I hope I can outline the difference in the following narrative. 

ACCOUNTABILITY

Hip-Hop, Idolatry & The Church Pt. 26 ~ Strange Fire

Lev. 10:1-2 ~1-And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not. 2-And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.

Recently I came across the initial episode of "Preachers Of Atlanta" and witnessed a conversation of particular importance as it pertains to the condition and desire of the hip- hop community to influence and expand their reach into church and church worship. 

Led by gospel singer Canton Jones, this particular segment centered around how the church could and should accept various types of music because the church was the only entity in life that does not seem to accommodate personal styles of expression such as hip-hop. Anyone reading this blog knows why that is true, as I have clearly set forth, in my hip-hop series, that hip-hop, in all its forms is incompatible with holiness, because it is more than mere music, it is a lifestyle of the "old man" of sin. One can begin to do research HERE

The conversation took a dramatic turn however and began to focus on the intersection of worldliness and biblical godliness and purity aka: holiness.

Witness the conversation for yourself in the following video:


Listen to this video carefully. I am placing this one as a part of my hip-hop series on The Dunamis Word. This is what happens when the WORLD meets the BIBLE but the people of the bible are of the world. Utter CONFUSION!!!!
Posted by Pastor Harvey Burnett on Saturday, February 20, 2016

As one can see from the segment of the video, there was rank and utter confusion in the room. Canton Jones did his best to allow LaAndria Johnson to explain her ministry "style". She quickly attributed her distributing cigarettes and condoms during the course of her "ministry" to the leading of the Lord even saying that "God told" her do do such things even saying that God would tell his people to sometimes do "some crazy stuff".

Rom. 10:2 ~ For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.

Preacher Of Atl...Le'Andria's Continued Cry For Help!

Self ascribed "Pastor" Leandria Johnson, of Sunday's Best fame, recently came under great criticism when she posted a periscope of herself partly nude and talking crazy.

Well, LeAndria's exploits, though I believe driven by the devil, seem to never cease. In her new reality show, "Preachers Of Atlanta" LeAndria reveals the extent of her satanic deception by admitting that not only does she continue to struggle with sin personally, even cussing out her husband with the grand "fxxx you!",  but also says that "God told her" to play upon the sins of people whom she encounters by offering them cigarettes and alcohol and even condoms for use in sinful sexual encounters.

Here's the video:


Leandria in her own words. Now she says she obeys God at the end of the day. Is that possible?
Posted by Pastor Harvey Burnett on Saturday, February 20, 2016

Now, This is nothing new. Since Simon magus, (Acts 8:9-24) and early gnostic Valentinus (100 -160 AD) the church has been plagued with its fair share of individuals who have claimed to be speaking for or hearing from God, when all evidence pointed to the contrary. We suffer today in many areas of life and living because the Catholic Church leaders adopted and renamed certain pagan practices, instead of destroying the practices and teaching completely new paradigms. LeAndria falls into the same class of individual, but how do we know? 

Because God does not send an abbreviation upon HIS word. HIS word is settled, his ways are RIGHT and he draws people from sin, not deeper into sin in order to use them.  

Though LeAndria does not give a biblical basis for her actions, I can imagine most that believe as she does will point to the following scripture to justify their actions:
1 Cor. 9:19 -23: 19 - For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. 20-And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; 21-To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. 22-To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. 23-And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.

For those who hold a liberal interpretation, that scripture in no way refers to getting in sin, becoming a drinker, smoker or cusser, in order to get with people who drink, smoke, and cuss in order to "win" them. To do so is a WORK OF THE FLESH, not a work of the spirit. 
Galations 5:16-21 ~ 16-This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17-For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18-But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19-Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20-Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21-Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
So of certain we can be CONFIDENT that God does not use sin in the manner in which LeAdndria is claiming that God uses sin to touch and or draw men to himself. 

God Does Not LIE!
Heb. 6:18 ~ That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

The problem is that God CANNOT and WILL NOT say that one thing is a sin and then tell others to do those things! The critic points to all kinds of fanciful interpretations of scripture to claim that I am wrong about this...One of the most famous assertions is Moses on Mt. Siani (Ex. 19, ch. 24:15-18 & ch. 32) receiving the commandments which say "Thou shall not kill" (commit murder) (Ex. 19:13)  The critic confidently proceeds to condemn God after Moses tells the Levites to "Kill" or "murder" over 3,000 people who had been engaged in idolatrous acts. (Ex. 32:28)

While there are more than a few things to say about this, what makes God consistent is that he also told the Israelites to not worship any "other God in his presence" (Ex. 20:3) which would infer strong punishment and retribution upon all those that continued to worship idols, and violate HIS word. In fact we see the demise of Israel into bondage due to their refusal to obey and heed the warnings of God and repent of their sins. 

What am I saying? I am saying that God was wholly consistent even in the case of allowing murder to display HIS justice and equity. The people who died, died because they embraced something that they knew kept them in bondage for hundreds of years in Egypt. As soon as they were free, they embraced the very things that enslaved them. If God is just at all, he must also bring JUSTICE into the scene and punish all them who make up their mind and heart to do wrong. So God's actions were wholly consistent with his nature...

Back to the story...


God never told Israel to worship Molech to win those who worshiped Molech...He never told anyone to DO sin in order to reach those in sin...If that is the case, and I believe that it is, and LeAndria says that "God told" her to do this, distribute condoms, cuss, provide cigarettes, and distribute alcohol, then I believe that we need to ask LeAndria, "who's god told you this? For we have EVIDENCE that it was NOT the God of the bible!"

In other words, her inspiration is either DEMONIC or it is merely a product of her own mind! Either way, It AIN'T GOD!!!!!!


This is the problem here and how the millennial is seduced. For they look at LeAndria as a credible source of information, only LeAndria is NOT preaching the gospel in her actions. The violation and disregard of the word of God is the work of satan and not the work of God.

Do then end justify the means?

ABSOLUTELY NOT! To make ones self defiled in order to reach those who are defiled is confusion. It is an inconsistency and God is NOT the author of confusion.

What can be done?

LeAndria can repent and display to the world how her practice and belief was wrong and how she is deceived. 10 million or 100 million records is aside from the point...her theology and lifestyle is not consistent with the word and or salvation. 

I began this blog to help folk get away from the deception and destruction of another self-ascribed prophetess and "woman of God"...Juanita Bynum II or whatever her most recent claim to fame may be...LeAndria is unfortunately following the same self-deceived line of spiritual misdirection as Juanita. 

Personally I hope that she turns, but she doesn't have a long runway in which to shut these things down. She has some beautiful children and the worst part is that they are directly effected by her inconsistent and confused lifestyle.


PLEASE LeAndria, make the change. Both for yourself and for your family. GOD is calling you to much better!

Blessed!

Bernie Sanders And Socialism aka: Legal Plunder




Socialism ~ A political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

“If you look at the issues — you don’t have to worry about the word ‘socialist’ — just look at what I’m talking about. If you go out and ask the American people: Is it right that the middle class continues to disappear while there has been a massive transfer of wealth from working families to the top one-tenth of 1 percent? Trillions of dollars in the last 30 years have flowed from the middle class to the top one-tenth of 1 percent. And the American people say, ‘No, that’s not right.’ And if you ask the American people: Do you think it’s right that despite an explosion of technology and an increase in worker productivity, the average worker is working longer hours for low wages? They say no. And what the American people are saying pretty loudly and clearly is they want an economy that works for ordinary Americans. For working people. Not an economy where almost all of the income and all of the wealth is going to the top 1 percent. That’s what we have now.” ~ Bernie Sanders in the Des Moines  2016 Register Newspaper
As the self ascribed "Democratic Socialist" Bernie Sanders continues to rise among Democrats giving Hillary Clinton all that she can handle, I thought it important to speak out on the political theory that Mr. Sanders actually embraces and explain how his democratic socialism, by nature, is one of the most problematic political philosophies in America today. In a sense Sanders claims to be an FDR (Franklin Delano Roosevelt) restorationist, even hailing Roosevelt as the ultimate Democratic Socialist, but there is something more ominous about socialism that the American public needs to know, that Sanders certainly isn't volunteering.

[PLEASE excuse the previous paragraph (which has been corrected) as it was hijacked to reflect support for Sander's socialism, but we DECRY socialism, especially the political socialism and servitude that Sanders endorses]
