As you probably already know, we have set up a “Testimonials” page for people to share their testimonies of how the Father has delivered them from false teachers, false prophets, harmful ministries, and from false (satanic) doctrine. We recently added a little something to this page, however, that you may not have noticed. Directly preceding the contact form, we added this statement:
“Tolerance” is not a fruit of the Spirit of God. If you still have any connections whatsoever with Bride Ministries (including being associated with people who are associated to people in BM), you are showing yourself to be tolerant of workers of darkness who are masquerading as workers of light, and we will not involve ourselves in helping you share your testimony. If we share your testimony and find out later that you are still associated with Bride Ministries in any capacity whatsoever, we will take your testimony down from our page. We have learned from experience that, unfortunately, to open our doors to even speak to those who have connections to workers of darkness, is opening ourselves up to unnecessary attack by both the demonic and humans in the astral. Please read and understand: Ephesians 5:11, Titus 3:10, Romans 16:17, 2 John 1:7-11, 1 Corinthians 5, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18, and others.
This short article is to give a little further explanation as to what we mean.
Learning From Past Mistakes
While we have come across powerful testimonies by some people who have gone through horrific things at the hands of false ministers who falsely claim to be working for the Kingdom of God, there is a little something called “discernment.” And a little something called “learning from one’s mistakes.” And a little something called “not returning to one’s own vomit.”
The Bible puts it this way:
2 Peter 2:20-22 (BSB)
If indeed they have escaped the corruption of the world through their knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, only to be entangled and overcome by it again, their final condition is worse than it was at first.
It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than to have known it and turned away from the holy commandment passed on to them.
Of them the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,” and, “A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud.”
Proverbs 26:11 (NLT)
As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his foolishness.
So, if someone suffers because of false ministers and the satanic doctrine that they are spreading; and if they suffer at the hands of ungodly organizations because of those satanic doctrines that the people involved with such harmful ministries are spreading and promoting; and if they do not completely separate themselves from the people who are spreading and teaching those doctrines of demons, as well as separate themselves from the actual false, unbiblical, satanic doctrine itself; then they are likely to fall right back into the same satanic trap, all over again, without even realizing it, because they have no discernment. They are, as the Bible puts it, “returning back to their own vomit,” by repeating their same foolishness.
Therefore, we will not share the testimonies of people who:
a.) have refused to separate themselves from the people who are involved in such ungodly ministries, from people who are still spreading and promoting the same satanic doctrines, and from the people who are still involved in the same occult practices;
b.) and/or have refused to separate themselves from the actual ungodly doctrines of demons.
We simply won’t be a part of the unhealthy and foolish cycle that unhealthy and foolish people partake in, by placing ourselves in the midst of becoming involved with people who are wishy-washy, wanting to share the testimony of how God delivered them from satanic doctrines one moment, and the next, cozying up with the people who are spreading and promoting and practicing the very doctrines of demons that they claim God delivered them from!
We’ve made the mistake of doing that before, and we won’t make the same mistake again.
Scriptures for Study
You can follow the links provided and study what each of the words mean in context within each verse.
● Titus 3:9-11 (http://biblehub.com/bsb/titus/3.htm)
“But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, arguments, and quarrels about the Law, because these things are pointless and worthless. Reject a divisive man after a first and second admonition, knowing that such a man is corrupt and sinful; he is self-condemned.”
● 2 John 1:7-11 (http://biblehub.com/bsb/2_john/1.htm)
“For many deceivers have gone out into the world, refusing to confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, so that you do not lose what we have worked for, that you may be fully rewarded. Anyone who runs ahead without remaining in the teaching of Christ does not have God. Whoever remains in His teaching has both the Father and the Son.”
If anyone comes to you but does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your home or even greet him. Whoever greets such a person shares in his evil deeds.
● 1 Corinthians 5:9-13 (http://biblehub.com/bsb/1_corinthians/5.htm)
“I wrote you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people. I was not including the sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. But now I am writing you not to associate with anyone who claims to be a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a verbal abuser, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat.
What business of mine is it to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked man from among you.””
● Ephesians 5:11 (http://biblehub.com/ephesians/5-11.htm)
“Have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”
● 1 John 1:6-7 (http://biblehub.com/bsb/1_john/1.htm)
“If we say we have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.”
● 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 (http://biblehub.com/bsb/2_corinthians/6.htm)
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership can righteousness have with wickedness? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement can exist between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will live with them
and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they will be My people.”
“Therefore come out from among them
and be separate, says the Lord.
Touch no unclean thing,
and I will receive you.”
“I will be a Father to you,
and you will be My sons and daughters,
says the Lord Almighty.”
