Dangers of The Headless Church
Don't Be a Church Without a Head!
One of my absolute favorite cartoons I used to watch as a child was “Ichabod Crane, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” And you know how it goes, if you’ve seen it. The headless horseman comes on Halloween to cut heads, Ichabod Crane being his next victim. It was terrifying yet a great cartoon. Full of suspense and a chill crawls up your spine when Ichabod has to journey home…alone. There’s something amusing about the headless horseman. But, there’s nothing amusing about the headless church.
A passionate man, with a vision, believes that he’s received a divine word a revelation from the Lord. What is this? Well, the Lord apparently spoke to him and him alone. God shared with him the unique tools to use to interpret dreams and visions. Elitism at its finest hour. Well, why should I care or why should you care?
One should care when someone states they’ve received a word from God which IS NOT able to be backed by the word of God, the Bible. Nowhere in scripture does God give the keys to interpret dreams and visions. Every dream or vision in the Bible that was given was because the prophet sought the Lord for the answer. Yet, for this particular man, he has a tool no one else has, not even the Bible. The problem is, people are throwing out their God given discernment and soaking this heresy up. Why? And why do pastors eat this up or teach on it making themselves heretical teachers? And it always amuses me when people give a word that contradicts the scriptures. When confronting or asking a question, the sly response is, “I just say what God told me.” Yet it goes against His very word. God did not indeed tell you. Test the spirits dear brothers and sisters. Test them!
I want to be perfectly clear what I mean by the headless church. And people remain in the church regardless of hearing this jargon because they truly believe this man has received a NEW WORD, NOT WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, from God.
This man now is laid to rest but he’s left a slew of broken ground, and false teachings which are still being used, behind his exit. His name is John Paul Jackson. Self-proclaimed apostle, charismatic in his teachings and truly believes that psychics have been given a gift from God. He has twisted the scriptures to suit his own heresy. If that’s not alarming enough, there is a church in the beloved town of Monahans where the pastor once a year teaches dreams and visions school. He once sat under the tutelage of this wicked man, and I sadly used to attend this church until I stood up for God’s word and refused to listen to the false teachings any longer. It was all deemed as a misunderstanding, but there was no misunderstanding to what was taught and continues to be taught. Why would pastors teach tools not in the Bible? Does God really choose certain people to speak to a major thing such as this to teach His children? NO! Upon the response to my letter, detailing why I was leaving, the pastor insisted upon gathering and having a third party. Yet another misinterpretation of God’s word being used. I am not offended by this man. He has not done anything to me that deems my having to confront him in the presence of a third party then if they refuse to listen, bring them before the church. That is if a brother has indeed OFFENDED you. He did not. I simply confronted his false teaching urging him to repent and change his ways for the sake of all who are listening to his jargon and the false teaching he himself sat under for so long that he willingly accepts. To this day, I hold no ill-will to this pastor. I beg and still do by this article, “REPENT! REPENT RICHARD!”
The word of God states in 2 Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
That means God doesn’t make exceptions to His word. If He said thou shalt not kill but tells you it’s okay, go kill that person for behaving in a derogatory manner to you then you didn’t hear from the Lord at all. But, people still go to this church to listen to dreams and vision interpretations. A list of colors and animals in a dream and what they represent. I have an entire book from someone who attended this school and I dare not even give examples to what things represent. But, they are false. My goodness is God grieved over this.
God gives us wisdom and God given discernment and time and time again in His word tells us to test the spirits!
Out of consideration, I will not mention the name of this church, but if you see it in the paper or hear of it coming, RUN! Run and don’t look back. The time is coming where they will raise up teachers in the last days who will teach what their itching ears want to hear. That’s also a reason one wouldn’t run from this. You like what you hear. What’s wrong with God’s word or seeking Him for answers that you need? Why do you need a man or a pastor to give you man-made tools? It’s a demonic tool, a smoke screen to lure the people in and keep them from seeking God on their own. That is what the people of old did when they needed to know what a dream meant. They prayed. But, there is an elite spirit around that is a pat on the back that God specifically told you this and no one else. Paul knew what that meant in Galatians. In essence, these pastors and people are proclaiming God gave them and only them the tools that apparently the prophets and apostles of old didn’t ascertain.
But from those who seemed to be something-whatever they were, it makes no difference to me; God shows personal favoritism to no man- for those who seemed to be something added nothing to me. Galatians 2:6
So move over Daniel, Jonah, Elijah and Elisha, and move to the wayside because a new and improved apostle is coming with a word and directions just from God that He failed to mention in His word. Do you see how damning this is?
This same self-proclaimed apostle John Paul Jackson claimed God also specifically shared with him where a portal is. A portal which angels and demons can pass through-another unscriptural thing. That he needed to pray for this portal so angels can freely come and go. He ended up purchasing this property where his ministry rests. Why no one tested the veracity of this man and line it up with God’s word is beyond me. Yet the dreams and visions school continue. And they sadly continue in this town.
This self-appointed prophet, false teacher and apostle also claims to have had a holy visitation while in Israel. Apparently two angels came, strum a harp and whisked him away back in time. He spoke to King David. That’s right. King David, father to King Solomon. Later, Jackson was able to tell his journey to some of his friends and of course they believed him by some of the confirming-demonic-details. Yet, God’s word speaks against those who speak to the dead calling them Necromancers. But, strangely it’s okay for the late John Paul Jackson. And still the dreams and vision schools continue.
Deuteronomy 18:10-12(in part) “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls upon the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord,….
John Paul Jackson indeed spoke to the dead, King David. But, the Lord commands us not to, yet it’s okay that he did and it’s being taught and the stories told especially in this church which teaches dreams and vision schools. REPENT!
When will God’s people get a head? When will they use their God given discernment and test what pastors or anyone says in the word of God, the Bible? You can test what I say and look at those scriptures and see they are 100% accurate.
Will you listen or will you go to the dreams and visions schools? Will you heed this warning or will you continue to attend a church where there is false preaching? Why don’t you run as I have run?
God wants us to be sober be vigilant. No pastor or man is above the word of God. Yet many will listen and pat themselves on the back that they went to church while the Lord weeps because you refuse to study the Bible yourself and come to the conclusions for yourself. If you were studying the Bible you can easily spot a fake or false teacher as easily as a hawk can spot a field mouse.
Many who read this will think I’m throwing this church and pastor under the bus. Many may even question the veracity if I am a Christian. Some may even think I am attacking. I am not. Let’s go to the scriptures to understand.
Jesus Himself called out the Pharisees and Sadducees calling them a brood of vipers. They were around Him daily testing Him and trying to find something worthy to arrest Him. Then there is the Apostle Paul in the Bible. He actually called them out by name, those who were walking not uprightly or according to the truth of what’s being taught. I leave the scriptures with you in hopes you look them up for yourself.
Philippians 3:18, Matthew 3:7, Matthew 12:34, Matthew 23:33, Matthew 7:15, 2 Timothy 2:17-18, 1 Timothy 1:19-20, 1 Timothy 4:14, Galatians 2:11-13, 2 Corinthians 11:4-5, 3 John 9-10
1 Corinthians 11:1 Paul also encourages us to imitate him as he imitates Christ. If they exposed false teachers then apparently they both sinned, especially if we are told to do likewise. Did they sin? Certainly not!
My ending comment to you is not only to the pastor REPENT! But, since he’s been confronted by myself, my family member, and from this pastor’s own mouth, a few fellow pastors in town warned him, and still he will not repent I say to you RUN! Especially, if it’s anything like my situation. I say again, I have warned this pastor, my family member, plus three additional pastors within town. Now, I must mark them as the scripture says. They walk disorderly. Run! Titus 3:10-11 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
Run and don’t look back. Don’t become part of the headless church. A corrupted head a corrupted and flawed leader gives that to the body. Soon, you will be unable to discern for yourself. Then the Lord will place the name Ichabod upon that place. Ichabod means, the spirit of the Lord has departed!
Currently, there are many of these same false teachers coming together to something called The Call. It’s to bring about the next Azusa street revival. Again, mocking the Lord by trying to invoke His spirit to come down and bring revival. Brought about with the leaders of these same false teachers, preachers and false prophets who think invocation will bring Him to answer. Blasphemous and mockery! God is not a man who has to be forced to listen to us and do as we say. And getting a group of people together for a single goal isn’t going to force His hand either. Read The Kundalini Warning yet or view the documentary on Youtube?
Children of God weigh everything by God’s word! Test all things! All else not supported by the Bible you had better RUN!!!
