EXPOSING THE WOLF Once God begins pouring out his Spirit in a great way, many things begin

to happen. One of the things he begins to do is reveal you. He begins to reveal things in us. Things that we have been holding on to that we haven’t realized we have been holding on to. Things begin to come to the surface more. And unless we begin to get rid of it, we have struggles. Where God’s presence is (which is a representation of light), darkness is revealed more. One of the things the devil loves to do is remove someone from the light and bring them back into darkness. And he is good at it. He has had many years of practice. This doesn’t mean that he comes into the light, it means he shoots—or he uses someone to go in for him. He usually comes disguised one way or another. We have seen many things happen— even in the discipleship houses. We have had men have visions of wolves and all sorts of things and we’ve seen people yielding to them. The wolf wants to come to the flock to remove the sheep. That’s his job. No matter where in the body of Christ—in every part of the body there are flocks. There is one true head but then God puts shepherds over each little flock that are all accountable to the true good shepherd. Tonight’s teaching is called Exposing the Wolf. We need to have discernment. And the one thing we can’t be is afraid of the wolf because he is nothing but an ant with a big megaphone. Even when you see him. I’ve been attacked by a wolf in my sleep. I was dreaming I had a child, a little boy. He would come home from school and run into the house screaming, Daddy, Daddy! He was afraid because something was chasing him and I could never find out what it was. When this happened about the second or third time, I decided to sneak and find out what was chasing him. When he came running up as usual, I opened the door really quick to find out what was chasing him. This was in my dream. When I opened the door I found out it was this huge black fury thing—I only saw the back of it. My first instinct—my mind was saying, Shut the door and lock it! The next thing that came to mind was, No, I have authority in the name of Jesus and I said, In the name of Jesus—and this thing must have been nine feet tall—and I grabbed the back of it. Well this thing turned around and he had a face like a wolf, fangs hanging down, and he jumped on me. And when he jumped on me I was holding his cheeks back so his fangs couldn’t bite me. Now I’m saying, Get him, get him, get him! And I’m thinking, Man, who am I saying that to? And I hear my wife going, In the name of Jesus-- You know because she was sleeping right next to me and I didn’t realize—Now I’m sunk down in my bed and I’m holding the cheeks of this wolf and I finally realized as I looked to the left of me there was an angel of the Lord standing next to me. And I’m holding off this wolf going, Get him! Get him! Get him! and then I woke up. I realized this was just not a dream but that it was happening, because I was in the Spirit. It was a true thing that was happening. The devil loves to attack you—especially when you are a baby in Christ. When you are a baby in Christ, he’s attacking you while you sleep, until you finally take authority and get rid of him. How many times have you been choked while you have been sleeping. That’s real. Those are devils. That’s just not a dream. That dream is a reality and it’s happening to you because that devil is trying to choke you. He’s trying to give you fear. You find sometimes you will wake up in the middle of the night to go get a drink of water and there’s a wolf in your living room. And you can’t run from it. You have to remove him! Remember, it’s just another representation of a devil. Now you can’t counsel devils and you can’t medicate them. The only thing you can do is cast them. If an individual doesn’t want that devil to leave them, that devil will stay. And usually the individual gets removed—with the devil! You are either going to get rid of it or you are going with it. And then he will use you. Remember the word tells us we are not fighting flesh and blood and we can never lose sight of this. We are fighting powers of darkness, principalities and wickedness in heavenly places. We are fighting demonic activity. But the devil will try and bring you into that place where you are not. He tries to tell you that you are fighting your brother, your sister, your mother, your spouse, your boss—and everybody else. What he is trying to do is keep you in the natural realm. But if you will stand bold and come against the powers of darkness, you will have victory. If you don’t, they will know and they will always steamroll you. They are testing you to find out whether you know they are there or not. One of the things the wolf does is he comes to remove the sheep from the flock to eat it up. That’s his job. The wolf must be exposed. And even when the wolf is exposed, the individual still has the choice. JOHN 10:1-10 The door is Jesus. …and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. That’s the importance of fellowship. So the shepherd leads the sheep and the sheep choose to follow because they know his voice. The problem is when the wolf comes. If the sheep don’t know the true voice of the shepherd, they begin to follow the wolf.

Let’s go a little further. Verse 5, Yet they will by no means follow a stranger but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers. Why? Because they are shutting off the voice of the stranger. They know the voice of the shepherd! After you have been involved in a fellowship for awhile and you have heard the voice of the shepherd that God has put there, sometimes you hear that voice. I have had many people tell me Man, I heard your voice. Being the shepherd of this flock—I heard your voice say something to me. It was the spirit quickening to something. You heard that voice, you got quickened and you remembered—because it was from that shepherd. But it was from the true shepherd. He just used something we related to—for remembrance. So we must know the voice of the shepherd. One of the things that happens is when we refuse counsel from the shepherd it’s because we are not listening to the voice of the shepherd. And then people go astray. I am the door. If anyone enters by me he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. Pasture is a place where they eat and rest. The wolf comes to steal, kill and destroy. The shepherd comes to give. So we know that Jesus came to bring us life more abundantly but you are going to find that the wolf, the powers of darkness, are going to try and steal even what Jesus has given. Let’s go further. … But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd—Remember he is saying this hireling is not a shepherd.—one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees. Do you know how many times a brother or sister of yours saw the wolf coming and fled and left the rest of the sheep. In other words, they saw the wolf and didn’t tell anybody. They saw the wolf doing what it was doing and chose not to let anyone know—that the wolf was doing something in the flock. You know what happens? Read this with me. And the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. It wasn’t the shepherd that left them, it was the hireling. Or another member. Verse 13, it says the hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. I am the good shepherd and I know my sheep, and am known by my own. So when you see something going on in the flock and you know that the wolf is activating or on the move, you don’t sit there and do nothing. Because God has given you the revelation that the wolf is on the move. If you don’t do anything, the blood will be on your hands. This is important! If you don’t do anything about it, whatever happens that is scattering those sheep, and whatever happens to those sheep—the blood will be on your hands. Because you didn’t do anything about it. That’s why you must go repent quickly. The thief is the wolf. And he is here to steal, kill and destroy. He has come to bring a scatter. If the sheep are following, they will know the voice of the shepherd—The Good Shepherd, Jesus. They will follow because they will know his voice. Then he is going to give to them abundantly. Jesus came to give abundantly. The wolf came to steal. We are to be exposing the wolf. Not hiding for him or covering for him. We are to expose the wolf. If you are not exposing the wolf, the blood is on your hands. And if you have repented for not exposing the wolf and choose still not to expose the wolf, the blood stays on your hands. Because repentance means to turn away and do the right thing. MATTHEW 13:18-23 The wicked one is the wolf. In the first example, the seed was put on the wayside and the other one had no root— both are referring to the ground. Now a foundation is built on the ground. Now we know that the word means the foundation and the ground represents the Spirit. The foundation represents the word. The ground represents the Spirit—and relationship and fellowship. In other words, nothing is built without the Spirit. In verse 22, … and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word and he becomes unfruitful. Why are the cares of the world choking the word? Why are there so many cares of the world? Because there is no fellowship in the Spirit. Everything is related to fellowship in the Spirit. … but he who received seed on the good ground—fellowship in the Spirit—is he who hears the word and understands. You can’t understand it without having fellowship in the Spirit. The good ground is a representation of fellowship in the Spirit. We see that the wicked one who is the thief, the wolf, the devil (all the same) steals the seed—the word of promise, and tries to destroy what the foundation is trying to be built on. He does not want that foundation to be built. We want to be able to produce fruit. So when things are stolen we understand that it’s not stolen by man, it’s stolen by the devil. MATTHEW 7:13-27 Did you ever wonder why some people seem to know the word so well but then every time they come up against something, they stumble. That’s because there is no fellowship in the Spirit!

Enter by the narrow gate for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction. So it’s easier to get to destruction. And there are many who go in by it! Narrow is the gate and difficult is the way that leads to life. So it’s difficult. And there are few who find it! Many go the other way and few find it. He explains in verse 15—Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. When he says false prophets, he’s not just talking about someone who is prophesying because the bible says that the spirit of prophesy is the testimony of Jesus. There are some that are testifying Jesus but they are actually wolves in sheep’s clothing. In verse 16 it says that, You will know them by their fruit. Do men—understand this, he brings the acknowledgment that these wolves in sheep’s clothing are men! Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? Again, he is saying that those who are claiming to be believers are the wolves in sheep’s clothing. Even so every good tree bears good fruit but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them. Now what are some of the fruit? Steal, destroy and kill. If there is someone there that is taking instead of giving, you know that’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing. If someone is there taking and not giving, that’s a wolf—and I’m not saying that wolf, that person can’t be delivered. They can. Verse 21, this is what Jesus said—Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father in heaven. He is saying that there are going to be plenty that claim to know him. But they are not entering in because they are not willing to do his will. You may know the word from cover to cover and still chose not to do God’s will. Verse 22, Many will say to me in that day—the day of judgment. But understand that there are many days of judgment but there is a specific day of judgment for you—the day you die, which determines where you go. That is your individual day of judgment. Then there is eternal judgment which comes. But there is a judgment when you die right then and there. This is what he is saying, Many will say to me in that day [that day that they die], Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name and done many wonders in Your name? And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from me you who practice lawlessness! He is saying there are those who I am still letting my Spirit work through them, but behind closed doors, they are practicing lawlessness. They are the ones who are using God for self gain. Verse 24, Therefore, whoever hears these sayings of mine and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who builds his house on the rock. Now rock is hard solid ground—where a foundation can be built. Solid rock—on what a foundation needs to be built. Jesus said, anyone who hears these sayings and does them—Has fellowship in the Spirit is what he is saying. Let’s go on—and the rain descended, the floods came—and what’s the flood from? The devil. And the winds blew and beat on that house—and who is the house? You and I. and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. Then he goes on to explain that whoever hears these sayings and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. No fellowship in the Spirit. Now if you back up a little bit—and when he said, Many will come to me and say I’ve prophesied, I’ve done this in your name, I’ve cast—These were ministers! These were ministers of Jesus Christ who took heed to the voice of the stranger and stopped fellowship in the Spirit and began to just minister. God will still use them because he is out to save the world. But their judgment will come on the day they die because they practiced lawlessness. Look how many ministers have been brought up only to eventually be found in fornication, deceit and this and that and have been involved in all kinds of evil—and during most of their ministry—and yet people have been healed and delivered during their services and they have had wealth and all kinds of stuff. You are not to judge by the gifts. You are not to judge by the prosperity. You are to judge by the fruit. If you have ever listened to the tapes on the revelation of hell, there were a lot of ministers in hell. Now it says that the one who hears my sayings and does them has built his house on the rock! Which means solid ground—hard ground. MATTHEW 16:15-18 Wonderful scripture. ….You are the Christ—which means the Anointed One and His Anointing. He got the revelation that Jesus was more than just Jesus. He was more than just the son of God. He was the Christ, the anointing, the Spirit. God himself, who had come into the natural realm to reveal himself and give power to all men.

Rock is a representation of relationship, fellowship in the Spirit. He was saying, On this revelation, Peter—that I am the Christ, the Anointed One and His Anointing, is how I’m going to build my church. The gates of hell cannot come against the Spirit. So we see Christ is the true prophet. He is the true shepherd building on the revelation of the fellowship in the Spirit. The bible says that God is Spirit and those who worship him must worship him in Spirit and in truth. The bible says truth sets you and I free. Truth. So according to Hosea 4:6, we know that the bible says, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. They are destroyed for lack of truth. You can have all kinds of knowledge but it might not be truth. But if you have truth, you walk in freedom. Because knowledge isn’t going to free you, truth is. There are a lot of people walking around with a lot of knowledge but have no understanding. But when you get understanding of the knowledge, it manifests truth! And then they walk in victory and freedom. But you are not going to get it without fellowship in the Spirit. MATTHEW 10:16-20 Isn’t that wild that Jesus said be wise as serpents? The serpent is the most cunning beast God created! He said be wise as serpents but gentle as doves. He said I send you out as sheep among wolves. Now there are three kinds of wolves. There is the wolf which is known as the unbeliever, which the devil uses. There are the wolves who are the believers, known as religion. And then there are the wolves who are believers who do not know that the wolf is using them. A believer does not knowingly worship the wolf. An unbeliever is willingly worshiping the wolf. Three types of wolves: (1) unbeliever, (2) religion, and (3) a believer who doesn’t even know that the wolf is using them. Verse 17, But beware of men—so we see the wolf is using men. The wolf is coming against the Spirit. Because it is the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you. You will find some brothers who will deliver you up. You have to understand something—the wolf, and of course every demon, is a representation of the anti-christ. All demons are coming against the move of God. The devil’s job is to stop the move of God, no matter who he uses, that’s his job. Why? So people don’t get free. You can come to Jesus and then get involved in religion and be bound. You can stay in the outer courts and never have fellowship in the Spirit. The bible says where the anointing is, where the Spirit is, it breaks the yoke of bondage. Now wolves, who represent men here—It says that you and I must endure persecution. Wolves are demonic forces at work deceiving men and women and children – ministers – anyone they can! By not knowing the whole truth. If you notice a lot of the new age books, they sound wonderful if you read them. They even have the word God in there. And they have the word spirit and all kinds of things. But they are partial truths. When the serpent deceived Eve, he shared with her a partial truth. He didn’t her the whole truth and then he called God a liar. He said, If you eat this you’ll be like God. Well, he wasn’t wrong. They would have a character—a representation of knowing good and evil. But God wanted to train up his people to know good and evil, not to have to endure it. And there is a difference. God wanted to train them up in purity and love to teach them what good and evil was. Because of that, the serpent deceived Eve and she bit the bait and we were the offspring of it. We were the offspring of spiritual abortion. Thank you Jesus—because he rescued us and raised us from the dead. Think about it—we were spiritually aborted. ACTS 20:28-31 The wolf draws the disciples away to serve themselves. Verse 31, Therefore, watch and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears. Now we know that Paul was a shepherd of churches. He was the shepherd of actually seven flocks. He would write letters to them and this is what we have in the book of Acts. Warning. In Paul’s epistles you see that he is always warning his churches—everywhere the letters go out. He is sharing, Listen you’ve got to understand, I’ve been writing you, I’ve been warning you for three years about wolves that come into the flock—and you are responsible to make sure that they don’t stay. You will know the wolf by the fruit. Because we have this discipleship house with men that come in—there are times we have to remove people because they will not take counsel. The wolf has gotten hold of them and then they become a cancer to the rest of the flock. And it’s not an easy thing when you have poured out your heart in counsel and ministry and so forth—and one or two or whoever just won’t take heed. And then they have to be removed because a shepherd’s responsibility is to protect the flock. Sometimes the person just has to go out and eat more dirt until they finally come to repentance. Did you

ever notice that when one is trying to leave a flock or a church, they try and take everyone with them. Because they were offended over some thing and opened the door for the wolf to come in. So you and I must be wise about it. One of the wolf’s greatest position, in the body of Christ, is religion. Religion is the greatest wolf. He is out to steal, kill and destroy and doesn’t even know it sometimes. Did you ever notice that Jesus didn’t play any games with the Pharisees and Sadducees. He just rebuked them, called them hypocrites and walked away from them. He exposed them—in front of all the people. John the Baptist did the same thing. He exposed them. When we were selling this product we had (The Vine of Life Juice, which had the word of God on the can), I had this meeting at one of the locations where it would be distributed. This particular place where it would be distributed was very religious. They had Jesus, Jesus, Jesus all over the place. I had dropped some juice off there and shared a little bit of my testimony. They sold the juice—it was a powerful witness as it had the word of God on the can. The owner called me up and said he wanted to see me. I said, Oh, you want me to bring more juice? And he said, Yes, we sold out. People liked it but I would like to see you before we put any more in. I said, Okay, when do you want to see me? He said, Tomorrow at 3:00 pm. That night my wife had gone to bed early as she was getting up really early the next day—So she went to bed and wakes up and says, Guy, I had this dream. There were three foxes and they were beautiful and looked so cuddly and whatever. They then came underneath the bedroom door and ran up my leg and started biting me. They were vicious like wolves. And then she woke up. I went to sleep that night and I had a dream that there was a boxing ring and I was going up to fight. And I hadn’t trained—I hadn’t done anything yet. The Lord was my coach! I kept saying, Lord I haven’t worked out. I haven’t done anything yet! And every time I would say something, he just kept putting the boxing gloves on and was tying them up on me. I kept telling him, Lord, you know I’m not even in physical shape yet! I don’t remember if I saw the individual I was going against in the ring or not—but whoever the individual I was, he was big. He was BIG! I had the robe on in this dream and I couldn’t even turn around—He just kept pushing me up there. And I said, Alright Lord, if it’s for you, I will go. I would walk twenty feet and I would say, But Lord …! Then he would tighten the strings on my gloves even tighter! And I said, Okay Lord, if it’s for you I will go. Then I woke up. Well I went to that meeting. He said, Would you come in the back room with me? And I said, Sure. And I brought the juice back there and he said, So tell me your testimony again. I told him about my encounter with the Lord. How God blinded me, filled me with His Spirit and how I began praying in tongues. How a serpent came out of me and how I was totally different. And how the Lord then gave me the vision of this juice and so forth. And he said to me, I don’t believe that. I said, Well I’m not going to lie to you! He said, Well I believe that was just an illusion from the leftover drugs that were in your body! I said, I was clean for two months! I didn’t use. He started quoting me scriptures—this, that and whatever. And I said, No, man I didn’t use. We started talking and he kept trying to convince me. The next thing I know, two other guys came into the room and shut the doors. Here come the three foxes. Now they were starting to shoot at me. As I looked at this man I saw this huge shadow behind him. He sat there telling me Mother Theresa was a witch and how all these other ministers were nothing but false prophets. This, that and whatever. Now I’m getting drained because we were going on for almost two hours. And I said, Lord let me just pray in tongues—and show these guys! And the Lord quickened me, They will kill you! As I looked at this man, I saw him with a shotgun killing people who were in the Spirit. I said, Lord, what do I do? He said, I’m going to make a way of escape for you. Now on one of the guys I smelled cigarettes. These guys were claiming how holy they are. I said, Well if you are so holy and talk about destroying the temple and this and that, why is one of your servants here huffing cigarettes? Why? They couldn’t answer that and they were making every excuse possible. Then they said to me, We want to make a man out of you! In other words, Why do you have a pony tail? Why this—I said, Lord ... Lord get me out of here now! Alright that’s enough—I’m tired, Papa! They are not willing to receive .... Then one of the guys moved away from the door and I just nonchalantly walked over there. It was like an angel moved ahead of me and pushed him out of the way. I went to the door and I shared with them that they blasphemed the Holy Spirit and they needed to repent because they had offended their Heavenly Father and that that man was leading those men to hell with him. And I left. When I left that room and that building, I barely made it to my car. I was so drained and so weak. I’m tell you my head was bouncing off my steering wheel and when I walked out I looked up and said, Man did you set me up! I said, Daddy, you set me up big-time!! And he was like, Well I warned you! So I got in the car, drove home and when I came to my front door, I opened the door and fell in. I really couldn’t even speak, I was so drained. I just said to my wife and my mother-in-law, who was here lay hands on me and pray in the Spirit. They did and I got revived, refilled and I popped up. And the Lord showed me about the wolf of religion. The wolf of religion takes. It steals what the seed of God has imparted. The wolf not only takes but rebels. The wolf is a stumbling block. It doesn’t receive counsel and takes what it can. The wolf in sheep’s clothing. Of course, he carries a trinity: me, myself and I. I have shared this

before, but one of the things that the Lord has shared with me about this ministry [and it’s His ministry] – and every ministry has its part—is cleanup batter. What this ministry does is cleanup what religion has imparted and it restores what it has taken—of the Spirit. You know sometimes the wolf can look beautiful. It can have all the forms of godliness. It can say the high class, intellectual words. But its tail gets stuck up when you mention the spirit and the fangs come out. 2 CORINTHIANS 11: 13-15 He says that they will transform themselves into ministers of righteousness. Now I shared with you about the religion. It doesn’t mean that someone doesn’t love God. But if they truly love God they have that relationship in the Spirit because what they are doing is hearing his word. If they are hearing his word, they are abiding in the spirit. Religion will go by what it knows and not who it knows. The problem is that what it knows, is error. It’s not all truth. And what it does is lead people astray—and takes. For example, we minister in the jail. There are a lot of ministers that go in the jail. We minister in the jail, we have anointing services and see people get baptized in the Holy Spirit, praying in tongues and so forth. Then you will get a minister that will come in right behind and say tongues is no longer, the gifts of the Spirit are no longer—those things are no longer. That is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, whether he knows it or not. He is a wolf and doesn’t know it. What is he there to do? Take what the Spirit has imparted. Steal. Jesus said I’ve come to give life and life more abundantly and the devil wants to steal life more abundantly. He wants you and I to walk in the natural and not the Spirit. He will use these righteous ministers, who don’t even know—who are bound by these religious demons—those wolves, to take what Jesus has imparted. I know this seems kind of rough, but you know my last ministering in jail did it. I said, Daddy…. And I let them all know. The Holy Spirit came upon me and gave me such boldness! And the anointing was powerful! And he spoke —and let me tell you I wish we had recorded that service we had done in jail. Because it was powerful—the insight that he brought to all of us. It was powerful! The Lord had shared with me that he wanted me to teach on exposing the wolf. We are to expose them because he is stealing God’s children. He is leading them astray and binding them in bondage and bringing them to the outer courts where they don’t have relationship in the Spirit. They struggle and fight and fall into fornication. They backbite, they accuse, they criticize and they bear no fruit. Only in front of men. Behind closed doors are ravenous wolves. 2 CORINTHIANS 3:1-18 We are ministers of the Spirit and not the letter. …. for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. If something kills that means it takes. So it says the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. Remember Jesus said, I’ve come to give life more abundantly. But the devil comes as one that steals and kills. Understand this—The Lord says, if you know me you will abide in me. In other words, you can know the word and not walk it. That brings death! So you can do all word, word, word – and know the word and have no fellowship in the Spirit – you are still going to hell! Jesus said your righteousness must exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees. And the only way it will do that is in the Spirit. So you and I are to be ministers of the Spirit not of the letter. The letter (or the law) is a tutor. The Spirit is the mentor. You can’t have relationship with the letter. You must have relationship in the Spirit, which brings the letter alive. …. But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ - the Anointed One and His Anointing. So understand this, the letter does not remove the veil. … But even to this day when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Then he tells you who the Lord is. The Lord is the Spirit. And where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty – Freedom! So when someone turns to the Spirit the veil is taken away. The letter or the law is the tutor and the Spirit is the mentor. That’s why it is so important that when you lead someone to the Lord that you lead them to the Spirit. You cannot let them go astray – just by the seed. The letter is the seed. The word is the seed. The bible says that the word is the seed planted. Jesus is the seed of God. That’s why there are two steps to being born again. The seed conceives. The Spirit births. That’s why people always have to rededicate their lives back to the Lord because of so many times in the beginning– In other words, did you ever see people go up to the alter, receive Jesus but then they are still going out and doing the same things. No power. GALATIANS 3:23-26

The letter is the tutor. The Spirit is the mentor. In other words, you don’t have to find God in the word. You have fellowship in the Spirit and he brings you to his word to be mentored. There is a difference. People are still looking for God in the word. If you go to God in fellowship in the Spirit, he will bring you to his word! And then the word becomes alive. There is a difference. The Spirit reveals. The word confirms. If you are trying to get confirmation before anything is revealed, nothing is happening. So you and I don’t have to go to the word to look for God. We go and speak to Him—because he is our Daddy. He is our Father. We are in love with him! We speak to Him! We pray in the Spirit. We worship Him. You don’t put the bible in front of you and worship the bible! No. You worship God in Spirit! Then he quickens you to his word—for confirmation. So he reveals in the Spirit and confirms through his word. So you don’t have to look for God in the word, you go and talk to him and he says, Go here. Or, Go here. Or, Open the word. When we were babies, we would look for God in the word. Until we were baptized in the Spirit. Then we began to look for Him personally. Now we begin to look for Him—as a PERSON not as a letter! Religion wants you to find God in the word and then become bound by the letter and not have relationship in the Spirit. Because then they build themselves up by knowledge and not by truth. It’s partial truth and then they can’t understand it. And then they teach someone else what they don’t understand. Everyone ends up going astray. That’s why there is so much controversy over the gifts of the Spirit in the body of Christ. Because of the wolf! That’s why people are still walking around suffering because they have been taught that Jesus doesn’t heal anymore. Until they finally go into a place, or someone comes across their path and lays hands on them. JOHN 5:39-40 Jesus said this to the scribes and Pharisees and Sadducees. You searched the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life. And these are they which testified of Me. The scriptures testified of him and he said, Man you are trying to find me in there! But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life. You searched the scriptures that testify of me, thinking you have eternal life, but you won’t come to me where you can have it. That’s where the wolf uses the scripture to try and sway you. The wolf uses the scripture to try and bring guilt and condemnation on you. Remember he is the accuser. Now the greatest wolf that was around was Paul, the apostle, when he was Saul. He was the greatest wolf. ACTS 9:1-22 Paul, who was a powerful man of God, who here was known as Saul, was ordering Christians killed. He was the greatest wolf there was. Mr. Religion himself – a high-ranking official from a family of Pharisees, who knew the letter inside and out and believed that they loved God so much that they would kill for him. Yet they couldn’t keep the law themselves. One day he had an encounter with Jesus. And he said, Who are you Lord? He said, I am Jesus. Then Jesus told one of his servants Ananias to go and see Saul and lay his hands on him so he would receive his sight by being filled and baptized in the Holy Spirit. The greatest wolf who became a powerful man of God, a great shepherd. A walking epistle and imitator of the King of Glory. Who walked this earth with great signs and wonders following him. Along with those who he trained and followed him. A wolf who became a powerful man of God. By the Spirit. He was no longer bound by the letter he was bound and chained to Christ Jesus, the Anointed One and His Anointing. He was led by the Spirit. He no longer persecuted or killed anymore. He exposed the wolf from that point on. ROMANS 8:2-4 It can’t be fulfilled if you are walking in the flesh. But if you are having fellowship and walking in the Spirit, it will be fulfilled. That’s why those who are led by the Spirit are known as sons of God. Remember the wolf comes to steal and the Spirit comes to give. 2 TIMOTHY 3:1-7, 13 … lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. That’s a lot in the Christian community! They are more interested in pleasures and fulfillment rather than being lovers of God! Why? The wolf. The wolf is leading them astray. Look at verse 5, … having a form of godliness but denying it’s power! They are coming against the Spirit. And from such people turn away. Turn away and have no fellowship with them! Religion is a killer. Verse 13—You cannot medicate or counsel a demon. It has to be removed. If the individual is not willing to have it removed, they have to go with it. Have no fellowship with the wolf.

JAMES 1:21-27 The Spirit will bring it to remembrance. ….and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. That means you are to keep yourself unspotted from the world. It’s not about going out and getting pleasures. But it’s about going out and rescuing souls. It’s about doing the will of God. So let’s not allow the wolf to have reign in our house or in our life. Let’s expose the wolf and get rid of it. EXPOSE THE WOLF AND GET RID OF IT. TAKE YOUR AUTHORITY AND GET RID OF IT! ****
