I had already posted this blog for tomorrow but I noticed tonight that a second Pentecostal minister Tony Spell in Baton Rouge has been charged with defying coronavirus order against large gatherings. I did watch one video form the church and all I can say is wow and not in a good way! Here are a few articles. Spell said, “This is an extreme test brought on us by the spirit of antichrist and the mystery of lawlessness,” he told the congregation. “What good is the church in an hour of peril if the church caters and caves in to the fears and the spirits of torment in our society?” “Last week, Spell said he does not believe his congregation is at risk of getting COVID-19, the disease associated with the coronavirus "It’s not a concern," Spell told CBS affiliate WAFB. "The virus, we believe, is politically motivated. We hold our religious rights dear and we are going to assemble no matter what someone says." “Pentecostal preacher Tony Spell didn’t just stand before his congregation on Sunday in defiance of the governor’s order to stay home: He leaped into the pews, paraded, hugged and laid hands on worshipers’ foreheads in prayer.” “Spell said his Life Tabernacle Church in Central, Louisiana, drew about 1,000 people to its services on March 22, in part by busing people in from across five parishes. He also has been holding services at the church on Tuesdays.” “The case has been handed over to the district attorney's office and that the goal is not to stop Spell from having church or speaking to his parishioners, but to have him abide by the guidance "that the governor and the president have set forth." “More than 5,200 cases and 239 deaths due to coronavirus have been reported in Louisiana.” “Louisiana has the third highest number of cases per capita and the second highest number of deaths per capita in the U.S.”
Here is where this might get a little weird if you have never heard of this kind of thing. I listened to his message March 22, 2020 and he actually gave a warning. As I have said many times the enemy / satan is so arrogant he will tell you what the problem is and then use it to his advantage. It is very easy to see that Rodney Howard Browne is a false prophet and we have talked about that before. If you listen carefully, in arrogance he actually tells you what God is about to do but he thinks God has shown him His favor. First of all, this prophecy stuff is real but you better make sure you know to whom you are listening to. The problem is people listen and think it is God speaking and they feel secure and joyful with no desire to repent, yes I know this scary, but it is not God speaking but the enemy in its arrogance makes them comfortably numb to what is actually coming. And yes the enemy is standing on the platform right in front of you and not just in this church. Here is a portion of the vision he shared during the sermon. “He said the end is not yet, I am sifting my people, separating the wheat from tares. I am separating the profane from what is holy; I am separating the false from what is true because I want a purified bride when I come. I shall come back for a glorious church without blemish. This shall be a time where whatever is not of God will be removed. Only what is of the spirit will remain, everything of the flesh shall be burned off in this hour and God will have a church that will be holy. Do not fear for He is with you. He loves you. Then I saw the earth with this thing over it and moved it back as a scroll. I the Lord God shall do this work.” He then said “I am going to be part of this bride that's purified and ready for the return of the King because Jesus is coming very soon, 3 years, maximum 7 years. But the Lord says fear not!” And yes everyone cheered! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
