Prophecy Now
Prophetic Words For Today's Discerning Christian

From Manipulative Media to Divine Grace and to the Oscars
(Christian Fundraising by Dishonest Means)

This is what the Sovereign Lord says,

“Against all odds, Saul was anointed King over the Lord’s inheritance and My Spirit came upon him in power causing him to prophesy alongside the prophets of his day. Sadly, as so often is the case in the process of time, Saul turned away from Me, ignoring My instructions and I was grieved that I had made him king. In the fullness of time, My Spirit left him and he was tormented by an evil spirit. Later, in desperation he turned to a medium in Endor, who was well versed in witchcraft. From the beginning, Satan has enticed My people to compromise and embrace his way of doing things condoning lies, deceit and deception, luring them to indulge in manipulation, intimidation or domination of others, all of which are at the very heart of witchcraft. I tell you the truth, little has changed.

“Jeremiah warned of those who put their trust in man and depended on flesh for their strength and whose heart turned away from the Lord. Few today truly know the difference between the Spirit of Truth and the spirit of falsehood. There are actors in Hollywood and actors in the Church. I tell you the truth, the Holy Spirit is the Director of all things Divine on the earth today and cannot be stage-managed by any man or woman. No matter how hard you try to deceive yourself and others of His presence, it is in truth a Satanic delusion of a mind that has not been fully transformed. The heart of man is desperately wicked and deceitful above all things.

“For many today, raising money is a mockery of manmade ideas that tries to replace Divine grace with human ability. While doing their best to manipulate and deceive others, they themselves are being manipulated and deceived. Jesus said, “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves, therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves because the people of the world are more shrewd in dealing with their own kind than are the people of the light.”

“It is with deepest regret, great sadness and profound sorrow that I say to you, ‘If there were nominations for an annual mockery-award for hyperactive individuals, who are well versed and trained in the ancient art of prostituting themselves (while manipulating others for money); more than a few members of the church media circus would win the award.’ These wolves in sheep’s clothing are highly paid to extract money fraudulently, whilst implying that the Holy Spirit is aiding and abetting them. They would win the award for, the most embarrassing, outlandish, far-fetched, misrepresentation of the truth to raise money in My name.

“There are those who I called and anointed to represent Me in the media, and just as Saul did, they have ignored My instructions and turned to those who masquerade as My servants and who are not. You are all without excuse. I have not forgotten how one who masquerades, bullied My servants into submission while on-air for all to see (to embrace his lies, deceit and deception) and the look of horror on their faces as the conviction of the Holy Spirit took hold of them. I warn you now, take account, as you account, for you surely will be called to give an account for this flagrant abuse of the truth.

“It is lunacy to think that you can embrace demonic ways and amalgamate them with the Divine. It is lunacy to employ devilish ways and means. I ask you, where is the fruit? Witchcraft is an act of the sinful nature. The difference could not be plainer to see, one is like a yellow brick road, the other a road of gold as transparent as glass. Do you see it? Do you wish to? It was a revelation to one media ministry, which is now transparent without walls to hide behind. Listen, while you continue to exploit and manipulate others, you will reap what you have sown. You have become bewitched like the foolish Galatians and are trying to obtain your goal by human effort. You address My people as saints, but are no longer as God-fearing as you once were yourselves. Have you suffered so much behind the screens for nothing? What will it take for you to be still in order that you can hear Me clearly once more? You know from old not to place your faith in gold. Solomon received 666 talents of gold each year and more, but still did evil in My sight (in the eyes of the Lord). Even with all his wealth and wisdom, he too was led astray by others to embrace ways that grieved and displeased Me. No matter how many talents you raise now with your talent without Me, how will you raise it later without the mark 666?

“As for those self-serving satanic servants of manipulation who slither from one ministry to another letting off steam, they are empty kettles and as stiff-necked as the Tin Man without the true oil of anointing.”

Michael Backholer, Sunday 18 December 2011 -

Some Christian meetings and Christian television programmes are overshadowed by emotional or manipulative appeals for money, with secular style fundraising (as distinct from honest appeals, 1 Corinthians 16:1 and 2 Corinthians 11:7-9). These individuals live like millionaire celebrities whilst taking from the poor and needy ‘for dishonest gain’ (1 Peter 5:2). Many professional ‘Christian’ fundraisers make unscriptural claims, use high-pressure sales techniques and are guilty of the sin of simony (Acts 8:18-23), by offering Divine blessings / favour for your financial gift or repeated donations, and they want MORE!
