‘Sweaty ministry’: Pastors/Worship leaders operating in the flesh, not in the Spirit, faking Christianity

I first heard the term ’sweaty ministry’ from Mike Fick in the early ’80s, while attending Abbott Loop Bible School. I’ve seen a lot of sweaty ministry since. The majority of pastors and worship leaders fake it, acting like everything is okay when it’s not okay. Some pastors are even giddy, laughing and patting people on the back like used car salesmen.

I have no idea how their hireling worship leaders “lead worship” Sunday after Sunday without God’s presence showing up. The pastors say how great the worship was, when it is spiritually dead. Cranking up the volume of state-of-the-art instrumentation cannot substitute for worshiping in Spirit and in truth.

“God RESISTS THE PROUD, but GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.” Be subject therefore to God. But resist the devil, and he will flee from you. DRAW NEAR TO GOD, and HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO YOU. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and PURIFY YOUR HEARTS, you double-minded. Lament, mourn, and weep. Let YOUR LAUGHTER be turned to mourning, and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he will exalt you. – James 4:6-10

From: explorationfilms.com

The late 60’s and early ’70’s were a time of tremendous upheaval in American culture as the hippie generation abandoned the values of their parents, turned to drugs and away from materialism, and went on a search for love and peace. For these young people, “the establishment” which included the church, seemed irrelevant. At times it felt like the very fabric of our nation might tear apart.

It was out of this tumultuous era that young, musical voices began to surface. These newly converted musicians began singing about the new hope they had found through Jesus Christ.

First Love examines the life and music of the people who birthed the sounds of a revolution that swept American culture. It became know as the Jesus Movement. For three historic days, these artists gathered for the first time in a mountain retreat in Southern California and First Love Volumes I & II captures almost 4 hours of each of their incredible live performances and reveals a rare look at the heart and motives of each artist as they describe in intimate detail the drama of their personal transformation.

(vid) THE COMING TEMPLE – Actual Location — ‘Wailing Wall’ not part of Herod’s temple

The Dome on the Rock mosque won’t need to be taken out. I waded through Hezekiah’s tunnel ending at the Gihon Spring, when I visited Israel in the ’80s. And in the ’90s, Mom and I saw the impressive model of 1st century Jerusalem at the Israeli museum shown in this video. Never did I think that the model could have been false. Experts tell why here.

I saw a Chuck Missler presentation of this misnomer a few years ago. This video is really good, because it also clearly shows who will rule from the rebuilt temple. It’s not going to be pretty.

Surprisingly, they give two references to the antichrist ruling from the rebuilt temple, but don’t include the main one: 2 Thess. 2.:

3 DON’T LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU in any way, for that day will not come until the REBELLION occurs and the MAN OF LAWLESSNESS is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he SETS HIMSELF UP IN GOD’S TEMPLE [the third temple in Jerusalem], PROCLAIMING HIMSELF TO BE GOD.

– –

21:30 The western wall, or “wailing wall” is not part of Herod’s temple, but the Antonio Fortress, a Roman fort.

The temple was actually by the Gihon Spring.

28:12 The model of Jerusalem at the Israeli Museum shows the Antonio Fortress being much too small, because the temple shouldn’t be there at all.

Chuck Girard: ‘Sometimes Alleluia’

Glorious, anointed, resting-in-God song from 1975 that I was blessed to experience as a young Christian! Christian music was awesome then, and will again be someday, when ‘ONE’ happens “that the world will know” (Jesus’ prayer in John 17)!

I was able to see Chuck a few years later, while attending the University of Minnesota — just him and a piano in the student union.

Global prayer walker Henry Gruver has passed – 1942-2019

I first me Henry Gruver in about 1990, when  friend invited me to watch the Ron Wyatt discoveries video Henry was showing to a small group at Anchorage Christian Center (ACC).

Years later, I was able to participate in a short prayer walk that he led in Anchorage.

The last time I saw him was when he spoke at a hotel in Anchorage.

In the late ’90s, I got his Russian Invasion of America visions videos from The Prophecy Club, as well as Dumitru Duduman’s on the same subject. Russia and China is preparing to successfully carry this out, while our media is almost totally silent.

Thoughts about Michael Brown — says we should stay in the middle

This video below is interesting. I agree with Michael that Biden should not have been allowed communion, because the sin is public. He says for unrepentant private sins, it’s okay to partake though, where the person is going to keep doing it. I’m now thinking that Paul said to “examine oneself” to not take it in an “unworthy manner.” Being hooked on porn and taking communion anyway, how is that biblical, Michael? [Michael is teaching a type of “only believe” hyper grace while saying he opposes it. I’ve been watching every one of his Q&A shows for months.]

How about this instead:

The Didache (70-100 AD): Reconciliation was required to attend early church meetings! “Let no one who is at odds with his fellow come together with you, until they be reconciled, that your sacrifice may not be profaned.”

What if we would actually do what Jesus said to do, which should relate to taking communion as well as lifting up our hands in worship?

Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has anything against you; Leave there your gift before the altar, and go your way; *first be reconciled* to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. – Mt. 5:21-24

(vid) David Anders: Why Joe Biden was Refused Communion

Dave and I attended seminary together during my second time at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. I still consider him a close friend; though, we haven’t communicated much lately. I do differ greatly with some of his Catholic teachings — for example, the Rosary and praying to saints, which is discussed in this video — we think a lot alike regarding who goes to heaven.

I see Dave is an anomaly among Catholic teachers. I’ve never heard any other Catholic teach what he does on salvation. He would likely agree with what I often say: we must actually abide in Christ to be “in Christ.” Whereas most evangelicals believe Luther’s “only believe.” [And most Catholics think they’re good to go with some ‘Hail Marys,’ ‘Our Fathers’ and the sacraments, which I’ve always found a huge deception.]

We must have faith to enter when we die and see Jesus face to Face, which requires a pure heart. See: Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT”

Dave Anders is the only person on TV whom I know of who teaches the truth about who goes to heaven; though, we do differ in some points, especially regarding infant baptism as being the start, which I just posted an article on.

The Keith Green Story: Your Love Broke Through (1 hour)

Keith Green had a big impact on my life. He was only four years older than me, and actually became a Christian about the same time I did, ’74-75. He died at only age-28. It’s absolutely incredible what he, his wife Melody and their friends were able to in just seven or eight years! Melody says in the film they were in Woodland Hills, a suburb of Los Angeles.

Praise God they were able to attend Ken Gulliksen’s rich, Holy Spirit anointed meetings right away, which was the start of the Vineyard movement. I didn’t find a church I could relate to until 1981, when I moved to Alaska and found Abbott Loop.

I listened to all of Keith’s music, and still have all of their “Last Days Ministries Newsletter” issues.

His legacy was so big, the vision and momentum, that something was seriously lost when he died in 1982. Christianity moved forward for awhile, but then floundered. The Vineyard movement fizzled out in about 1991. [Our church was autocratic, and the founder never did fully repent or reconcile. Anyone who said something was considered anathema. We were like the church of Sardis in Rev. 3:1-6, having a “‘reputation’ for being alive, but….”]

Keith wouldn’t have put up with the world taking over the church like it has. Hardly anyone today seems to have his passion for doing whatever God wants no matter what — “no compromise.”

This story is wonderfully told by Melody, their friends, and the great people who once were Sparrow records, which was later bought out by a secular label. Christian music was wonderful in the ’70s and ’80s! It’s so spiritually dead now. Keith would have never put up with that, and he ended up giving his music away for donations of any amount. He wanted to make sure the world didn’t compromise him through the love of money, and fame too.

I wonder what the world would be like now had Keith not died so early. He showed the impact that one sold-out man for Christ with great friends can do.

Today’s ‘Christian’ radio stations in America like K-LOVE won’t even play even one of his songs. That’s how sad and pathetic ‘Christian’ music has become — deadsville. This needs to radically change. Instead of “no compromise,” their message is “go to sleep;” “Jesus loves you no matter how much you willfully sin and don’t repent or reconcile.” That’s ‘Christian’ music today, and what is preached from most pulpits today too. Churches have almost no holiness, no presence of God, no passion. We have fake churches right now almost everywhere. Keith Green would freak! Imagine how Jesus feels right now with almost everybody doing their own thing, and acting like it’s okay.

Quite a story here! We need to get serious. We need to live no compromised — which is just normal Christianity, the way it’s always supposed to be.

ABOUT THE FILM

This film was apparently released in 2002. This version is the best quality I could find online, and ends at 1:02:25, where it repeats part of it again, strangely. So it really is only an hour long.

Update on Henry Gruver's condition

I met Henry three times when he was in Anchorage in the ’90s. My jaw dropped when he showed a few of us the amazing Ron Wyatt Discoveries video at ACC. Later, I saw him when he spoke in a nearby hotel, having had a bad experience in the local churches. We also did a group prayer walk.
Besides being known for prayer walking cities, he had an important series of dreams/visions of Russia and China invading the USA.

Murillo: Punishing church members because they want a move of God — You never made Satan smile wider • Stop punishing those wonderful people who are hungry for the Holy Spirit to fall on your church • Catering to the lukewarm

It’s about time! I’ve been maligned by church leaders for telling the truth for decades for this very thing.

PUNISHING CHURCH MEMBERS BECAUSE THEY WANT A MOVE OF GOD
Posted on May 8, 2018 by mariomurilloministries
A growing number of Christians feel their church is doing a lot of things that don’t matter. Even successful programs don’t matter to them. They believe only a move of God can save us now. [It’s actually now even too late for that.]
They believe we have no time to play games. They are frustrated that church is catering to the lukewarm members. Most of all, they feel that they are being punished for wanting a move of God.
I want to direct myself toward leaders who are guilty of correcting members who yearn for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. You’ve got it totally backwards. Those who are hungry for a move of God are the best thing that ever happened to your church.
If you wounded a hungry saint’s heart, it was a spectacular mistake. They, and not the lukewarm, should be setting the tone for your church.
Somewhere, we got the idea—I believe it came from the pit of hell—that exuberant worship, preaching with unction and conviction, fiery prayer meetings, and deliberate soul winning are the “old ways.”
They are not old ways—they are timeless ways. In fact, they transcend time. They are the chosen weapons.
You never made Satan smile wider than when you punished someone in your congregation for wanting a move of God. …
 
They yearn for the miracle that will stop America’s slide toward oblivion—they wish for an act of the Holy Spirit so real and widespread that it impacts, crime, injustice, addiction, and despair.
You may be punishing people God is stirring. You may be trying to put out a flame that God lit in their heart. …
 
The first step is to stop punishing those wonderful people who are hungry for the Holy Spirit to fall on your church.

China

by Randy Stonehill | from the 1981 album Equator

A billion hearts are beating
Far across the water
China…
And when the sun is shining
Their land is cloaked in darkness
China…

Silent eyes watching the western world
Guarded hearts hidden like precious pearls
Who can reach you, China

All the ancient wisdom
Passed down through the ages
China…
Still has left you thirsting
For something that can heal you
China…

Laboring under the crimson hand
Countless wheels turning at each command
Praying for you, China

Some recall the story
Told by distant strangers
China…
Whispered like a rumor
The King of Hearts is coming
China…

Hands of love knock at your mighty wall
All your tears Jesus has felt them fall
He’s calling to you, China
Praying for you, China
Who can reach you, China

(video) Ex-Witch Breaks Down the Power of Praying in Tongues to Defeat the Devil! — “We have to learn how to TRUST Him, and know that He’s SAFE, and that the gift is safe • The Devil does not want people to have or use any of the gifts of the Spirit, especially tongues, because tongues is that POWERFUL. And that is why there are so many widespread LIES and misunderstandings about tongues. Because if the Devil can strip that away from us then we have lost a piece of the ARMOR of God, we have lost a mighty and powerful WEAPON to defeat the Devil, which is why we’re here. We’re here to PARTNER with Jesus and KICK the Devil’s butt! • So of course, he’s going to try and stop that” – Beth Eckert

Really important; though, some parts may be confusing. Having prayed in tongues many thousands of hours since 1981, and having studied this in-depth myself, I’d be glad to answer any questions.

I also have a Pray Perfectly in Tongues category here at ONEcanhappen, that has my posts on this important and maligned subject.

Having had thousands of confirmations, I personally believe that the main purpose of praying in tongues is to deal with demons in a way that we don’t have to see what’s actually going on — because if we saw the demons we’re dealing with we’d probably freak!

Ex-Witch Breaks Down the Power Speaking and Praying in Tongues Holds

Ex-witch Beth Eckert says one of the key ways to defeat the devil when he launches an attack is to speak and pray in tongues.

However, many Christians today do not believe these are active gifts meant for modern use.

“Recently, I’ve decided to explore more in-depth about what speaking in tongues is versus praying in tongues and what Scripture says about those things, because I’ve seen so much controversy on the topic of speaking in tongues,” Eckert says.

The ex-witch says most of her research comes straight from 1 Corinthians 14, which dictates how and why these gifts should be used.

Speaking In Tongues & Praying In Tongues: A Biblical Guide

(video) Zachary King: Death and Harm Spells & How To Protect Oneself — “I used to do death spells quite a bit. …they’re sending a demon to you. Not every death spell I’ve ever done worked. At the time, I was 91% accurate with all of my magick. How come some people drop dead and some people are fine?”

Zachary King is a former Illuminati high wizard, turned Catholic. He’s an expert on witchcraft; though, some of his Catholic solutions are not Biblical.

As Zachary says, “adoration”/worshiping is effective, as long as we truly are worshiping. Bible reading can help.

The #1 method I use TO BE FREE is to pray in tongues for anyone cursing me, which I have done every day for decades. It’s amazing how effective this is, and every Christian can do spiritual warfare in this way, contrary to what the naysayers say. Paul said: “I thank God, I speak in tongues more than you all” (1 Cor. 14:18) | See: All of my Pray Perfectly in Tongues posts at ONEcanhappen

Also, very effective is forgiving others from our *entire* hearts (including the bottom — seriously) is very effective too. | See:  Forgiving-Others, Freedom Prayer!

Zachary suggests going to confession, but priests are not Biblical in the new covenant. What the Bible really says in James 5:14-16 is “call for the elders,” and also “confess your offenses to ONE ANOTHER”:

Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the assembly, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will heal him who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your offenses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The insistent prayer of a righteous person is powerfully effective.

Paul made sure he was always right with everyone:

“Herein I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men” (Acts 24:16).

(video) Kevin Conner: Disciplines Of My Life

Kevin Conner was one of my Bible teachers at Abbott Loop Bible School for one semester in ~ 1984.

Since this message is about discipline, it’s interesting thatKevin once told me how important it is to work out physically for good health, after I was told by God: “ask him about healing.” I was surprised to hear something practical instead of spiritual.

In this message, Kevin says he was a few weeks from turning 86, and this was published on Feb 26, 2013.

1) Discipline of my mind

“If we don’t guard the gates, then sin enters through the mind.”

“The eye gate and the ear gate.”

“There are three sources of thought that we all have. … Thoughts that come from God…, self…, and from the Devil. … We all have to discern the source of our thoughts.”

2) Discipline of my attitudes

“Attitude indicates performance.”

3) Discipline of my prayer life

“If Jesus needed to pray, how much more do we? If Jesus in his humanity totally depended upon the Father for all he was, all he said, all he did — and he continually kept that line to the Father day and night — how much more do we?”

“My wife is different than me. I generally get up about 6:30 or 7:00, if I’m tired, just to pray and to make sure I feel right with God.”

4) Discipline of the Word

“If you don’t make time you’ll never find time. You have to make time to read the Word. It’s a discipline. The same is your prayer life. ”

5) Discipline of my spirit

“I have to continually guard my spirit.”

“We impart beyond our words. We impart what’s in our spirit.”

6) Discipline of honesty

“The opposite of honesty is hypocrisy.”

Kevin Conner on the Believer’s CONDITIONAL Security: “OBEDIENCE IS the very law of SECURITY for all created beings. There can be NO SUCH THING as UNCONDITIONAL security.” — WARNINGS against backsliding SHOW that the security of the believer is conditional upon obedience and faith • What God has provided in Christ man must receive and apply • Divine SOVEREIGNTY *and* human RESPONSIBILITY meet together in the great redemptive plan • Christ is “the author of eternal salvation unto all them that OBEY him”(Hebrews 5:9) • Upon HEARING and FOLLOWING the Shepherd they receive eternal life and will never perish • AS HE OBEYS the Word of the Lord his SECURITY against backsliding and apostacy is FULLY GUARANTEED

“This is a serious sickness,” I believe I just heard the HOLY Spirit say.

This song just gets me! This is part of what’s wrong with country music. And to me, it’s one of the most disgusting songs ever written. It’s the rally cry and justification to annihilate a nation for something the country didn’t do to us. Then Toby publicly has the nerve to claim God’s blessing for the evil we do to them in Jesus’ name.

God is going to bless US for completely ignoring Jesus’ second greatest COMMANDment to love our neighbors as ourselves??

Because of our self-centered, superior attitude and actions, many now not only hate US for using our power to kill them. They also don’t want anything to with our Jesus, whom we claim we’re serving. Many will join Al Qaeda, or immigrate and be our enemy.

How would we like it if a much stronger country regime-changed US, killing many we love — which experts like Joel Skousen think Russia and China may someday do?!! And God won’t let it happen??

We call ourselves a Christian nation while completely ignoring Jesus’ second greatest COMMANDment to love our neighbors as ourselves if people are Muslim.

If we expect God to bless US, then we’re even supposed to love our enemies, as Jesus said — instead of taking the low road — because we can — and it felt good to the flesh, rallying together against a people “who hate US” (and now actually do).

Sean Hannity made it feel good:

The line, “’cause we’ll put a boot in your ass / it’s the American way,” is part of the introduction of the Sean Hannity radio show that is played at the beginning of each hour. (source)

Will we ever learn that Sean Hannity lies too? And why is Toby still singing this song? He should have shelved it long ago, and repented, admitting he was wrong; though, he was probably one of many who wouldn’t even look at the proof that the planes’ jet fuel didn’t take down the towers, and the hijackers weren’t even from Afghanistan, officially.

“(video) Sarah Palin demonstrates why most evangelicals dissed Ron Paul, who wanted to bring the troops home. ‘CHRISTIANS’ have TWO SETS OF BOOKS: one for US and one for THEM (“who don’t deserve rights”). THEY’re not our ‘neighbor’ whom Jesus commanded US to love as much as ourselves. Maybe that’s why most evangelicals refuse to investigate 9/11. If ‘THEY’ didn’t take down the towers…???

Why is anyone still listening, and cheering to this disgusting song that should have been shelved long ago, if we had any integrity:

Now this nation that I love
Has fallen under attack [WTC collapse not Afghani caused, proven – ed.]
A mighty sucker punch came flying in
From somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly
Through our big black eye
Man, we lit up your world
Like the 4th of July [Afghanistan – ed.]

[Chorus]
Hey Uncle Sam [Zionist controlled media did – ed.]
Put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty
Started shaking her fist
And the eagle will fly
Man, it’s going to be hell
When you hear Mother Freedom
Start ringing her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you
Brought to you Courtesy of the Red White and Blue

[Verse 2]
Justice will be served [‘Justice’??? – ed.]
And the battle will rage
This big dog will fight
When you rattle his cage
And you’ll be sorry that you messed with
The U.S. of A [though Afghanistan didn’t do 9/11 – ed.]
`Cause we`ll put a boot in your ass
It`s the American way [not God’s way – ed.]

[Spoken]
God bless our troops
And God bless America [really??? – ed.]

(video) ‘O Holy Night’ – Trans-Siberian Orchestra — If we’re going to worship God then let’s really worship!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember the exact moment when I first heard this song — because it blew me away!!!

About 15 years ago, I was filling equipment outside in the dark winter, ramp lights turned on, with the fuel truck at NWA air freight, which had a radio. I heard this and was stunned!!! I called the radio station when I got inside to hear who it was, and then bought the CD.

The Bible says to “LOVE the Lord, your God, with *ALL* of our HEART, SOUL, MIND and STRENGTH!” To me, the audio here partly achieves this. If we’re going to worship God then let’s really worship!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The audio was probably recorded in the studio, and the video portion was reenacted; though, a nice story. The girl had been wandering, and found wholesome truth in Christmas.

It’s not just the soaring electric guitar. Something is spiritually right here; even though, some of the musicians may not even be Christians.

The heart and soul of this likely comes from the blonde, guitarist leader, probably the guy on the left. I have this DVD too, but haven’t watched it for awhile.

Outstanding, especially the worship factor of the audio!

(music video) Leon Patillo: ‘Love Calling’

I remember playing the cassette of this album, “The Sky is the Limit” a number of times while attending seminary during the spiritually dry second time.

Earth people, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I am not alien,
This is love calling, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I want to be your friend.

I have been around you since the world began,
I have even visited you and walked upon your land,
I have known your leaders down through history,
Some have made the effort to communicate with me.

Earth people, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I am not alien,
This is love calling, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I want to be your friend.

I don’t want to harm you; it’s the last thing on my mind,
I just want to share my love with all of mankind,
When your heart is broken, and the world has been unkind, I’ll pick up the pieces and I’ll give you peace of mind.

(this is love)
(this is love calling Earth)
(come in, come in, come in)
(this is love)
(this is love calling Earth)
(come in, come in)

Scientists are seeking immortality,
Astronauts are searching the skies for our destiny,
It’s not complicated, what this planet needs: love is still the answer to life’s mystery.

Earth people, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I am not alien,
This is love calling, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I want to be your friend.

Earth people, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I am not alien,

“PRIDE is concerned with WHO is right. HUMILITY is concerned with WHAT is right” — UNITY happens when we live in reality

I don’t know how much of this is humility, but to me, being concerned with WHAT is right is just how I’m wired. It’s just normal.

I don’t understand those who run from the truth for whatever reason.

We need to live in reality to be in unity.

(video) Ex-Witch: Praying in Tongues To Be FREE! — “Tongues is perfectly releasing the prayers that need to be prayed for those people”

As an ex-witch, Beth would be more aware about how much demons really do affect people. Here, she discusses the importance of praying in tongues so people can be set free!

I’ve been praying this way for others since the early ’80s, and have experienced THOUSANDS of deliverances!

Beth correctly says:

“Tongues is perfectly releasing the prayers that need to be prayed for those people.”

Any Christian can do this.

I have a category here on my spiritual blog called “Pray Perfectly in Tongues.” (10 posts per page, latest appear first)

WATCH: This Ex-Witch Explains the Benefits of Speaking in Tongues

Beth, of the blog The Other Side of Darkness, was a practicing witch until the cross transformed her life.

Now, the Spirit-filled believer is out to share the good news of how others can connect to God through the gifts of the Spirit, particularly praying in tongues as described in 1 Corinthians 14.

“Speaking in tongues can scare people,” Beth says in a recent video. “I mean, we don’t understand what is being said. God understands, and angels and demons understand.”

While our minds can’t comprehend, our spirits can. And though the gift can be a bit confusing, it has several benefits for both the speaker and those around them.

Watch the video to see what they are! (Charisma News)
