It seems today that those who tell the truth, who dare to stand up for the Word of God are labeled as being judgmental. They’re labeled as attacking people. However, that’s not true. Just because you are standing up for the Bible, that doesn’t mean you’re attacking anyone.
I don’t attack anyone. I love everybody. And so should you. But I am going to tell the truth – the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. I’m not going to let any lying devil sneak up, slip up, creep up while I’m acting like a weak kneed, yellow-bellied preacher who won’t tell the truth, knowing that one day I’m going to stand before Jesus Christ. I don’t want Him to tell me I was weak kneed and yellow-bellied. I don’t want Him to tell me that I compromised the Word of God. I want Him to tell me, if anything, I was too aggressive. I want to be aggressive about the things of God. Why? Because when you become unaggressive, you’re going to lose. The devil is very aggressive, and if you’re not, he is going to win. You have to become more aggressive than the devil is, if you are going to overcome him.
I want to be aggressive about the things of God. I’ve never met a devil or demon that I could not cast out. I have met some things higher up in the spirit that I could not handle by myself, but I have never met with a devil that the power and anointing of God, working through me, could not deal with. And that same power is available for everyone in the church today, if we will go after it with everything that is in us.
Now there is an antichrist spirit that has been let loose in this country, in the church today. It’s aggressive. When I talk about this antichrist spirit, I’m not talking about a person. It is a spirit. What is this antichrist spirit? It’s anything that opposes the Bible, that opposes Jesus Christ, and it has invaded the United States and the church – the body of Christ, those who are born again.
It has invaded the church, to the point that it has watered down the Gospel and the church is no longer preaching the truth. Of course, this is not everybody, but there are many people that have been seduced by this antichrist spirit and they are preaching false doctrines that are of the devil. And those things are going to be blown out of the church by the Holy Ghost.
That is exactly what is going to happen in this day. Because the Lord said that He would build His church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.
This antichrist spirit has invaded this nation and the church in a way that is unprecedented. It has never happened to this degree since the founding of this nation. You can’t act like it doesn’t exist, because it does. You can’t act like there aren’t false doctrines in the church today, because there are. And if we don’t stand up and preach the truth. The devil is going to win. That doesn’t mean that we attack people. That doesn’t mean that we fight people.
Dr. Kenneth E Hagin said that any time that he saw ministers fight with one another, get in an argument with one another, fussing with one another, attacking one another – they always died prematurely. So I’m not attacking anyone. But if what the Bible says attacks you, it’s not me doing it, it’s not the preacher – it’s the Bible. That’s the Holy Spirit convicting you of sin. And we have to point out things that are wrong because people don’t get it unless you do.
You have to preach the truth. Not to attack people. I’m not out to attack any human being. But I am against the devil. I am against false doctrine. I am against the antichrist spirit. And I am against seducing spirits. And I’m against anything that has to do with the flash that’s in the church. And God is too. And if you are a Christian, you should be as well.
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables (2 Timothy 4:3-4).”
