During the past few nights, I have been in the schoolroom with Yeshua. In the dreams, I can see myself sitting at a desk and He is leaning over me, teaching me. For instance, yesterday morning, I woke up from a dream where the Lord was ministering and counseling me on my Sleep Paralysis blog entry; He wanted me to add the scriptures about the Seal of God, so that is what I did upon waking. Then later, He used a sister in Christ to help me with the rest of it, so thank you Lord for sending her to me.
For the past two days I have been dreaming about the Pharisees and was given an amazing dream about falling trees I’d like to share as soon as I can. Last night the dream I had concerning them had to do with the fruit they produce; so far I have had two dreams concerning thier children, meaning the people who listen to their teachings. He is teaching me because I am asking many questions about them when I dream.
What I am beginning to understand (and what many may already know) is that most of Christiandom, most Christians out there today, are listening to the Pharisees and they don’t know it. They think because they have “correct doctrine” or “true dogma” that they are right. They do alot of finger pointing and they mock the things of the Lord. They are also adept at (mis)quoting scripture, so one way to know a Pharisee is – Can they hold an ordinary conversation with you or do they throw mountains of scripture at you as their way to communicate? If so, then you are most likely dealing with a Pharisee. They do that because of their self imposed, self righteousness, and because they believe they are “holier” than you.
True brothers and sisters in Christ share a common language and that is the language of Love. They can minister without scripture whipping eachother – because they are united and unified in and by the Holy Spirit. We are One with eachother and we are One in the Lord. And we are the minority.
Additionally, a Pharisee or someone who is indoctrinated by the Pharisee teachings will generally exhibit EXTREME OPPOSITION to the true people of God, so that is another clue that should tip a person off.
It is really, really important to acknowledge that the MAJORITY is in error…it is the minority who is walking in the True Light of Yeshua. So, once a person is finally able to say, “The majority of Christian Teachers and their listeners and followers are in error,” then that person can then begin to ask themselves the hard questions: Am I a Pharisee? Do I follow Pharisee teachings? If so, what can I do to change that?
Being open minded is a first step. If the first thing out of your mouth is something along the lines of:
God would never do that or say that or minister in that way – – chances are – – you are a Pharisee or you’re listening to one.
Jesus calls them out on their finger pointing:
Mat 23:24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. Mat_23:26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
Jesus let’s us know they pass judgment because we aren’t just like them:
Luk 11:38 And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner. Luk 11:39 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness. Luk 11:40 Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also?
Jesus lets us know they say things like, “If you are a true prophet(ess) tell me my middle name:”
Luk_7:39 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.
(Note: They also exhibit hatred against women; a woman can minister to Almighty God Himself, Jesus allowed her to touch Him and minister her love and devotion to him in the sight of all the Pharisees.)
Jesus condemns them for being heretics and hypocrites:
Luk 11:42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Luk 11:43 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets. Luk 11:44 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.
Jesus let’s us know they say, “But you are doing the same thing when you point out our heresy:”
Luk 11:45 Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also.
Jesus let’s us know they are responsible for silencing the true prophets of God and also even killing them by their own devices:
Luk 11:47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them. Luk 11:48 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres. Luk 11:49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute: Luk 11:50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; Luk 11:51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.
Jesus let’s us know they stop people and put roadblocks against the people, preventing them from knowing the truth:
Luk 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. Luk 11:53 And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things:
Jesus let’s us know they go on fault finding missions trying to set people up:
Luk 11:54 Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.
