Voices, Visions and Vicissitudes

On June 9, 2016 a lengthy QAlert was given at stevequalye.com which was titled, THE VEIL OF THE EARTH ITSELF WAS RENT IN TWO LAST NIGHT STEVE!  THE SPIRIT OF THE ANTICHRIST HAS BEEN “OFFICIALLY” LOOSED UPON OUR NATION AND THIS TIME, THE LORD WILL NOT CHANGE HIS MIND.

We are told that the Lord had given this word to Romy, who is the wife of Steven Zarit of Share The Flame Ministry, a non profit organization.  At the conclusion of this QAlert, Steve Quayle testifies, “I have known Romy for over a decade and I have never known a word that she has received, from being a God called Intercessor, to fall to the ground, nor have I ever known of an intercessor who stays in constant prayer with the God enabled intensity that she does, which is impossible for humans unless, the presence of God empowers a person in this unique calling!  Thank you Jesus for your servant Romy.” (posted originally in all capital letters)

Based on what is written in this letter, Romy had given Steve Quayle the option of posting her testimony or not, as she was apparently only sharing this with him “out of obedience”. She claims that her “hands are clean, and I will not have anyone’s blood on them”.  She also notes that “many will dispute that this is from the Lord”.  So since we are to prove all things and test the spirits, perhaps we should indeed ask, “Did the Lord speak this declaration to Romy, and allow her to watch, in the spirit, the total carnage of this country taking shape”?

Whenever anyone declares that the unique word which they have received came directly from the Lord, they are setting themselves apart from their listeners or readers, as being specially “anointed” to receive prophetic messages which, if you as the listener or reader deny or question, your blood will be upon your head. This ignores what is distinct about Christians as compared with Old Testament Israelites, for the Holy Spirit now indwells and seals everyone who has a saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

This said, how come I did not notice that on the night of June 8th, that the veil of the earth was rent, and the spirit of the antichrist was “officially” loosed upon our nation? Would there not have been some major ripple effect either in the spiritual or the physical realm caused by this event?  Was I remiss as a Christian in not watching the election coverage that night?  Watching TV seems to be the singular event which triggered this whole episode involving Romy.

Romy claims, “There is a huge and gaping open wound that was torn open by Satan himself, and his most powerful demons and the Lord permitted it. It has never happened before in the spiritual realm, but it will never heal…ever.  The demons released around the entire earth in the spiritual realm began to envelope everything and everyone, as the spirit of rage and insanity spread during the ensuing hours.”  I did not even have a bad dream that night, and the spirit of rage and insanity passed right over my house.

Now, I have never heard the term “the veil of the earth”, but apparently the Theosophists, who think of everything, have, and by this they mean  some sort of magnetic radiation or something.  The last time I heard a report on a veil being rent which affected the earth, it was recorded in the New Testament.  Matthew 27:46, 50-52 reports, And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?…Jesus when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.  And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom: and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, and came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

So what “Lord” was it that wanted to steal our attention away from the moment in history when Jesus Christ died and the veil of the temple was rent, to instead watch in awe as Satan and his devils were ripping the Veil of the Earth, to loose the spirit of antichrist upon our nation?   I John 2:22  asks, Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ?  He is antichrist that denieth the Father and the Son.

I John 4:1 tells us to try the spirits because of the many false prophets in our midst; I John 4:3 says, And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the worldSo if the spirit of antichrist was already in the world at the time that John wrote his epistle, how come it took till June 8-9, 2016 for it to arrive in the United States of America?

As an aside, in case you have not studied the subject of Bible translations, all modern translations except the King James Holy Bible have omitted “Christ is come in the flesh” from I John 4:3, making them “the spirit of antichrist” Bibles.

Romy makes the comment that, “The “Deep Freeze” that has sneaked into the lives and spirits of many of his own true “called out ones”, had already begun about a year ago….”. She does not tell us what event set off this state of Deep Freeze that would differentiate it from times of backsliding in every other generation.  She continues this sentence, “and most of them have become aware of the hardening of their hearts “recently” …”.  Is she aware of some event or events which has affected multiple persons?

There is a hardening which God warns against, for example in Hebrews 3:13, “But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today: lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin”. But there was in history another example of hardening which I find interesting in the context of this QAlert, since it also involved an event which preceded it.

In this present time, every Christian has the Holy Spirit indwelling them, and when Jesus Christ was on earth he said, in Luke 7:28, “For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he“. So Christians are to walk by faith and not by sight, and we are not in need of Prophets as such, and also today we have the fullness of the Scriptures to rely on.  But here we have Romy, for several hours apparently, watching in the spirit “the total carnage of this country taking place”.  That is something which occultists regularly do in the astral realm.  They walk by sight just as the serpent in the garden said to Eve, in Genesis 3:5, “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods….”

Two days later, Steve Quayle’s QAlerts posted another email entitled, Confirmation of Romy’s Vision – Our Heavenly Father Already Has The Means Pre-Scheduled To Provide For Us – Just Like The Donkey, The Upper Room, and The Loaves and Fishes written by Kim, who had a dream/vision of “the demonic release which has taken place”, confirming what Romy saw.

Now I was discussing this word “hardening” which is through the deceitfulness of sin, but also I wanted to mention the example highlighted in the Exodus story where Moses confronted Pharaoh.  We read in Romans 9:17-18, For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up,  that I might show my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.  Therefore he hath mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.

Pharaoh is a type of Antichrist, and as Romy claims that the “spirit of antichrist has been “officially” loosed upon our nation”,  we must note from the story of the Exodus that a number of events occurred between Moses and Pharaoh  where there was no hardening of the heart. Romy says in her letter to Steve Quayle that something had occurred about a year ago where persons are aware now that they have had a hardening of their hearts.  I am wondering what this event was exactly, that precipitated this observation of Romy’s.

Quoting from Dr. Peter S. Ruckman’s commentary on the book of Romans, pages 368-9, he asks, “In fact, do you know when  the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart for the very first time – according to the Scriptures?  It was after Pharaoh challenged Moses with his magicians (Exod. 7:11-14).  Pharaoh defied God with his own stubborn will and then by the power of Satan.  At that point God hardened his heart, not before.  So when Paul says God raised up Pharaoh to show his power, yes God did, but He did that based on foreknowledge.Having done that, God did not harden Pharaoh’s heart until He gave him two legitimate chances to repent and obey without God influencing his decision.”

Pharoah’s hardening of heart occurred after he used his magicians to challenge the servant of God with the power of Satan.

So with this Deep Freeze which begun about a year ago according to Romy, and the recent hardening of hearts, is she not concerned that her peering into the spirit world for several hours to view a vision of total carnage, might be an act which aligns herself with magicians, rather than with Christians who walk by faith?

2 Timothy 3 discusses the last days when perilous times shall come and describes several characteristics of men who are covetous, boasters, proud…having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof, and instructs the Christian to turn away from such persons. “For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts.  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.  Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth:  men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.  But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.”

As someone who claims to have received direct words from the Lord, does Romy have clean hands and is she free from the blood of all men? I cannot personally answer that, for I have never seen what the fruit is of Romy’s intercessory activities.  But who is it she has warned here, except Steve Quayle?  She gave him the option of posting or not posting her vision and words and warnings. She did not instruct Steve to warn his readers, or even those in America.

When Pilate said the following, was there really nothing more that he could have done in his authoritative position?  Matthew 27:24 says, “When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it”. Whereas the testimony of the apostle Paul is this in Acts 20: 26-7, “Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men.  For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God”.

In this QAlert, there are references to the veil of the earth being rent, and Satan and his devils running around with a spirit of rage and insanity, creating a heinous chaos (mental illness) and perversity; and God is separating sheep from goats, etc. I see no distinct Scripture referencesDoes God not quote his own words in this so-called visionary warning so as to ground his church in the Scriptures?  Paul goes onto warn in verse 29, “For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.  Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them”.  In verse 33, he declares, “I have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or apparel”.

The so-called confirmation of Romy’s vision was the dream/vision of another woman, not a Biblical explanation.

The Scriptures which came to my mind upon reading the claim that the veil of the earth was rent in two on June 8/9, 2016, is John 10:4-5, And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him:  for they know his voice.  And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him:  for they know not the voice of strangers.

The Man Who Said Too Much, Part One

Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools:  for they consider not that they do evil.  Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God:  for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth:  therefore let thy words be few.  Ecclesiastes 5:1-2

This past month I have doing some spring cleaning, and came across some notes that I had made on a lengthy imprecatory prayer spoken by Steve Quayle, a little over two years ago.  I have an interest in the doctrine of prayer, as found in the Scriptures; therefore I was interested in how Steve Quayle, who boldly prays and relies on a group of intercessors on his behalf,  makes use of the scriptures in approaching the throne of mercy.

The center point of Tracking the Leopard Meroz is imprecatory prayer, which enters into the forefront of the hottest battles in the spiritual realm. I first became aware of the dangers of such praying years ago when I, as an insignificant believer in Jesus Christ had to employ prayer as a shield of defense, and then later as a sword of judgment against men who are as Baalam.  Baalam, as we know from the book of Numbers in the Old Testament, was known for his ability to curse or bless anyone he wanted to, for reward.  He wielded the words of God, seemingly with impunity; that is, until the day the Angel of the LORD stood in his way.

Most real prayers are spoken in the closet, to God the Father, in the name of Jesus Christ. Prayers which are spoken before a public audience are often suspect, as the person praying is not only speaking to God, but is highly conscience of the opinions of men.  The caution against this is found in Luke 16:15, quoting Jesus saying, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts:  for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

In the public prayer which I am citing, Steve Quayle prayed for God’s favor upon an unrighteous, unrepentant man who had been undergoing a trial in his life, due to his own wrong conduct. We have all prayed for such men, but whether or not God hears our petition is dependent on us asking in accordance with God’s will. If we are not forthright and honest with God in our petitions, the Lord may take our words and heart motives and deal with us with an honesty which we were hoping to avoid.

The words that Steve Quayle spoke in this particular portion of the prayer were:

Lord, I pray for my friend, John Stokes, Father in Jesus’ name.  He’s been through the ringer.  Lord, I know all of his issues- he admits his issues.  Lord, I have the same issues, but you set me free.  I ask God that you deliver John Stokes literally from the battle that’s against him, Lord.  He stood for truth, God, he’s told people like the way is, even when the pastors were silent and Lord in Jesus’ name, I ask for miraculous intervention in his life.  God give him victory in Jesus’ name and let no weapon formed against him prosper.  And I pray you reveal, Lord, the duplicity, the illegality, and everything that is coming against my brother, Lord, I ask that you bring it out in the open.  You said nothing that is hidden will be made known and Lord everyone who bore false witness against him you said, Lord, lying lips are an abomination to you as much as those who sow discord among the brethren.  I pray Lord that people that fit in those categories would take stock of what they’re doing, and I pray in Jesus’ name, Lord, that a miraculous intervention in John’s life will take place.

Until yesterday, I had never thought to ask who John Stokes is, or at least was, at the time of Quayle’s prayer. Presently, John Stokes has a website, johnstokes.info, which displays a photo of himself with I am guessing, his Webmistress, based on the two different Donate buttons prominently displayed underneath.  There is also an ad for Steve Quayle’s Renaissance Precious Metals business.  John Stokes claims he is “ranked as one of the top one hundred talk radio talk hosts in the world”. But when I click on a link for the Edge Radio Show, it takes me to a Facebook page which was last updated with a post about 22 months ago, on July 8, 2014. We are told that The Edge can be heard on Orion Talk Radio from 11 am to 1 pm MT. On John Stokes website, there are several news links to other sites which update daily on various subjects, including Before It’s News, the favorite trash bin for all spurious rumors initiated by  Alternative Truth Tellers.

Entering the words John Stokes, the Edge, into an internet search engine brings up numerous reports of his life as a Shock Jock and troublemaker. John Stokes once lived in Washington state, my old stomping grounds, so my interest was piqued by an article written by John Stang for the Seattle PI (Post Intelligencer) on October 1, 2009, entitled, Secession leader now in deep debt in Montana:  Bankrupt John Stokes led “Freedom County” movement here in 1990’s.  I left  Seattle in 1983, so I missed the excitement in the 1990’s when John Stokes made the bizarre attempt to split Snohomish County into two counties. Failing that, Stokes moved on to Quayle country, where since the year 2000, he became a Shock Jock, or as John Stang more politely phrased it, a “controversial, right-wing radio station owner and talk show host in Kalispell, Montana”.  Nine years after this debut, the PI reported that “the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office in Montana (had) seized Stoke’s radio station last week and evicted him”.

One of the major events in John Stoke’s life during these Shock Jock years occurred when he got into a dispute with the neighbors who owned land near his radio towers. Apparently he went on air and accused them of committing bank fraud and perjury.  In return, these neighbors filed a defamation lawsuit and won a  $3.8 million judgment in late 2008.  Stokes had other debts and had not filed tax returns for about ten years, so he filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Compounding his problems, U. S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Ralph Kirscher found John Stokes to be a liar. In a September 21, 2009 article by Dan Testa for the Flathead Beacon, titled Judge’s Order Allows for Stoke’s Assets to be Liquidated, the backstory on the judge’s ruling that ordered Stoke’s Chapter 11 proceeding to be changed to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is discussed. Elsewhere, I read that Stokes attempted to overturn this ruling, that allowed for “the liquidation of most of his assets in order to pay for his debts”.

Judge Kirsher had found that Stokes had not “accurately disclosed the value of his property during bankruptcy proceedings, despite swearing under penalty of perjury that his asset statements were accurate (bold added)”.  Originally,  real property had been listed as $3.1 million, with personal property as $148,042; the amended statements show real property listed as $10.7 million, with personal property as $15.5 million. This represents an underreporting of $7.6 million in real property and approximately $15.35 million in personal assets.

For more background information, I offer up the following three articles. The first is called The West’s Biggest Bully, written by Ray Ring for High Country News on September 15, 2003.  A follow-up article by the same source on September 1, 2009 is called “The West’s Biggest Bully”  Gets His. And on April 7, 2012, Tom Lotshaw wrote an article, Stokes in Second Appeal of Bankruptcy for DailyInterLake.com.

On December 25, 2012, John Stokes commented on the godlikeproductions.com forum site giving his version of events which had cascaded like a breaking dam in his life. Click on the screen shot below to read his justification for his problems. Also note that Steve Quayle, Hawk and Romy had been frequent guests on his past radio shows.john stokes godlike productions 2012 (4)The point I am making about the life of John Stokes is that it is difficult to intercede before the throne of God for such a man, unless you are pleading for the grace of God which will bear the fruit of repentance in the heart of John Stokes. The worst enemy of John Stokes is John Stokes.

While Steve Quayle calls John Stokes his friend and brother, according to the public record of Stoke’s own words, he had claimed that he did not go to church, and if he claims to be a believer in Jesus Christ, I did not run across this testimony in the journalistic reports that I read. If you want to intercede for a man who openly displays numerous sins, it is vital to be honest before God. Does not Galatians 6:7 say, Be not deceived:  God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap?  According to Steve Quayle, John Stokes admitted to having “issues”; and these “issues” were the same things which Quayle had, but was set free from by God. Are not these so-called “issues” in fact deeply rooted sins in the heart of John Stokes? Was Steve Quayle set free by God  from his issues, but not from his sins?

This prayer, which was called magnificent by another guest on the same radio show, also entailed Steve Quayle accusing those persons who had the unenviable position of  being the ones who had to withstand the sins of John Stokes, of duplicity and Illegality.  Looking at the record, it appears that God had intervened in a miraculous way in John Stokes life, by standing as an adversary against him.  Thus when Quayle exalted John Stokes as a truth teller, and  justified his sins as being nothing more than “issues”, and apparently failed to entreat Stokes to repent before God and men, another layer of deceit was added to an already very serious matter.

In the next post I will look at another aspect of this same prayer which had been spoken by The Man Who Said Too Much.
