A62) An Occult Anointing and Fallen Angels Will Soon Sweep Across the USA, (S. Dobbs, 2010).

This word focuses on warning about a future flood of deception coming in particular upon the church of the western world. This enemy wave has already begun but will build in intensity over the next few years and lead to many falling away from the faith. The Lord told me that there will be a “great slaughter” of much of the church of the western world. I would therefore like to point you towards the following word which can help people avoid falling victim to this, (link).

We know that scripture tells us in 2 Cor 11; 14, that “Satan... transforms himself into an angel of light”. Well I believe the Lord gave me a prophecy in 2005 the following part of which warns about the appearance of fallen angels across much of the church, (I expect this to manifest fully by the end of 2011).

“Firstly there were fallen angels appearing as angels of light: The first area of deception was depicted as a picture of a church in the U.S.A, (this could perhaps apply to other nations too). This was symbolic of what is going to start happening in many churches, particularly those across the USA. In this picture someone in the congregation declared that God was going to send an angel to them and that it would bring with it a new anointing that would start a revival in that church. Only a couple of Christians were cautious and took time to weigh this word up, the rest just assumed it must be of God without testing it. An angel did then come to that meeting; however it was a fallen angel, sent to deceive. It did bring with it a new anointing, only it was a counterfeit anointing and not of the Holy Spirit. Spiritual manifestations broke out in that meeting, sometimes similar to those one might expect from the Holy Spirit, sometimes different and more obviously demonic. These were all counterfeit and from the kingdom of darkness however, from the occult realm. All but a few of the Christians opened their hearts to this and almost the entire congregation then started following this other spirit. The Lord then gave me a prediction that this was going to happen in many churches scattered across the U.S.A. in the future. There are going to be many false angelic visitations that will bring deceptions and a counterfeit anointing.”

[The full word can be viewed here].

We therefore need to be prayerful, discerning, serving God as our priority in life and particularly careful about any reports of sudden strange angelic appearances. Many will believe these to be evidence of a new revival but will really be based on the manifestation of demonic power.

This will be preceded by strange demonic manifestations and miracles/healings coming upon undiscerning Christians in their meetings from a type of anointing that was not experienced by anyone in New Testament times. We must therefore test all anointings and spiritual power against scripture.

[2 Thess 2; 9 warns us of demonic “power, signs and lying wonders,” Mtt 24; 24, of “false prophets” who “will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect” and Rev 13; 13 of “great signs” and even “fire” coming “down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men” that the false prophet will be able to perform. The Apostle Paul also predicted a great apostasy, the “falling away” of many believers from the faith, 1Thess 2; 3, N.K.J.V ].

Many appear to be tragically unprepared for these things in most churches in the western world today. However I believe that God has shown me that we are already in the beginning of this season of great deception which will escalate over the next few years.
