How NOT To Be a Turkey on Thanksgiving!
HOW NOT TO BE A TURKEY ON THANKSGIVING
Copyright November 25, 2013, Patty Thomas
On danger of being called “Ms. Manners,” being polite and gracious is always appropriate. Too many Thanksgiving dinners are ruined because of idle comments and bad manners. Jesus Is a Gentleman, the Epitome of Self-Control. Make Him proud of your attitudes, actions and behaviors. Make this a day to remember for the right reasons!
BEWARE OF PSYCHICS!
In recent days a noted psychic Sylvia Browne has passed. Her death is receiving much media attention.
BEWARE!!!Psychics have led millions of people astray and away from God with their books, their teachings and their "readings." Psychics receive information from the demonic world. That is why the Bible calls them "false prophets," "diviners," "witches," "soothsayers" and "fortune tellers." DO NOT seek them out. You are in direct rebellion to God if you do. WORSE, because you seek answers from the satanic kingdom, you offend The Lord, Who Died to defeat them - they are liars and deceivers, and they come to kill, steal and destroy. It opens the doors and gives license for satan to destroy your life, your health, your finances, your relationships and your soul.

No Labels, Please!
Job 32:21-22 (King James Version) 21Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man. 22For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away Yes, I have various anointings. No, I don't want a label. I don't want to be called "prophet" or "prophetess," or any other such thing. I've heard people call me a "general" but I don't want the title. I just want to be His Humble Servant, obedient in every moment. Now, if the Lord Says that, so be it. But, I will still bear that as a huge responsibility. I have to answer to Him for everything I think, say, see and do. I want to be bold when I have to be, courage and faith filled, but simple before Him. We have a responsibility to God to carry out the tasks He Gives us without getting puffed up at the results. I don't need a string of letters before or after my name. That's man's labels. Man's ideas. Man's plans for "earning" them. I only want God's Recognition and Approval. You see, labels brand people. I am growing every day. Labels might keep me in a man-made box. I'm vast - the Creator Lives within me! I don't want to be "pegged" or "pigeon-holed." Labels feed the ego. I want mine laid down. You know, they feed other people's egos, too. "Oh well, Bishop, Prophetess, so-and-so" came to my house. Let me know when Jesus Comes....we are ALL fallible human beings. And, (my trademark saying) not one of us breathes without Him! Labels set the expectations of people that you are going to "do this" or "say that." I'd rather let Holy Spirit Have full rein in me - let Him Decide what should be said, what should be prophesied, what miracles, signs and wonders should occur. To advertise that the Glory of God Is all over me...is to set up the expectations of people. They come expecting to see something. Let their hearts simply come humbly before the Lord. Let Him Decide. When expectations are lifted, it opens a door for the enemy. When titles precede a person, expectations are lifted, often unreasonably. If I advertise that I'm a prophet, then people will come expecting to hear a personal Word, more than a Word for the church as a whole. If they are not called out, they get disappointed, disillusioned and sometimes, even mad at God. That's not acceptable. Giving a person a title, also sets up idolatry. "Oh, prophet so-and-so is coming to our church!" We all put our pants on, one leg at a time. Jesus Was the Only One with a Seamless Garment! Now, how Cool Is He! There's Someone to get excited about! When a "prophet" is in the spotlight, if they don't take time to DISCERN the messages, they could falsely lead people. If the tv camera is on them, or there is a set time they must be finished, they may grab any "message" that comes. Setting a person up in this way, leads them into the temptation to speak when it's not Holy Spirit Who Is Speaking. That's their flesh - and that leads to all kinds of problems. When a "prophet" feels they need to "perform," or "do a great job so they get invited back," they are setting themselves up for deception. Ah, yes, Deception. It is rampant in the church today. Unfortunately, well-meaning people have taught whole churches and conferences to "just hear what Holy Spirit Is Saying." But, if they haven't taken the time to develop a deep Relationship with Holy Spirit....they are probably tapping into the air around them - and hearing the demons. who is the prince of the air? that's right - satan. Having been delivered from new age teachings, including psychic readings, I can recognize the difference between a voice/message that comes out of the air, versus the Voice of Holy Spirit. So to teach people to turn to their neighbor and tell them whatever comes....is highly dangerous and totally irresponsible. Moreover, those who are prophesying truly need a team of people standing watch and praying for them.....interceding. Think about it. One wrong message could destroy a person's dreams, could send them off to marry someone they shouldn't, could cause them to sell their home and move across the country. This is the devil's playground. It is time the church realized it. The person prophesying will bear the spiritual responsibility for lives destroyed from false prophesy. What's worse, is that if the person prophesying wants to be liked (man-pleasing,) they may even override what Holy Spirit Is Saying, in order to give the person the message they want to hear. They will have to answer to God for this. I've cast off the spirits of divination, witchcraft, Jezebel spirits, spirits of baal and python, fortune telling spirits, familiar spirits and more off of prophets that are giving messages to many people in the room. I've seen them suddenly stop prophesying, as a group of dark figures (demons) left them and exited the room. It's time for prudence. The Gifts of God must be treated as Precious. They are to be handled with loving care, and protected as if they are Precious. I am what I am, a sinner saved by Grace and much, much mercy. Yes, prophecy, often strong prophecy, will come through me. But, I'm just His little girl, wanting to sit at His Feet, or rest in His Arms. I just want to please Him. So, when I go, I go with humility and respect for the Almighty God, without Whom I wouldn't be going at all. It's just not about me. I want to be transparent. That, when people look at me, they see the Face of Jesus. They hear His Words, not mine. He Made me to be a failure - so that He Could Humble me enough to be of use to Him. That's a place I accept in humility before Him. Let not pride "puffeth us up." Labels inflate the ego. Let's lay it down for Him.
