May I ask just how much of AJ's material you have actually studied and for how long? Do you know this teaching but reject it?
I am a beginner. And yes I have listen to quite a few of his teachings. With all my teachers I study for myself to know if what they are saying is truth or not. I eat the meat and spite out the bones.
I have a lot of teachers that I love and I may agree with a lot of what they say and I may disagree on some things they may say.
For example i love Kenneth Copeland. I think he does a beautiful job at teaching people how to walk by faith. But I disagree with him that grieving is a sin. I believe there is healthy grief and unhealthy grief. Not all grief is evil.
I love Pastor Yeager. I enjoy his miracle stories and if you need healing he is the man to go too for healing but do I agree with everything he says no. Do I agree with a lot of things that he preaches yes. And I enjoy going to his church. He is the reason why I go to his church because he is so on fire for God.
I love Lisa Hicks she has a wonderful evangelist gift and I enjoy her preaching but do I believe she has the gift to prophecy or to know everything about people no I don't? That is because she seems to read me wrong each time she prophecies over me. When she says that God told her my favorite color is yellow then I know she didn't here from God. When she looks at an out dated family picture and tells me to be more strict with my oldest daughter then I know she didn't get a message from God because my daughter is married with kids. She isn't a kid anymore. And if God truly spoke to her God would have told her my picture was an out dated family picture. I don't trust her prophetic words because she has given me wrong information so I judge a prophecy by its accuracy. When I email her and told her she didn't hear from God she block me. So her lack of accuracy and lack of love tells me she isn't a prophetess.
So far I haven't seen anything that Joyce Meyers has preached that I disagree with. I love this woman. Her sermons always seem to speak to me. And I probably should make a habit of turning her on everyday. She really does speak to me about my life.
I love AJ and a lot of his teachings have answered my questions but do I ever disagree with him yes on some things but I do agree with him on the majority of things.I I agree with him about praying for more love and walking in more love. But I am having a hard time agreeing with him that God doesn't speak to us though words because this is the kind of relationship that I do have with God and I have been in the prophetic community for years and read hundreds of prophetic words from different prophets. I know the voice of My Father. Do I ever run into a false prophets yes lots of times and I have had real prophets prophecy over me. I know they hear from God by their accuracy and love.
I had a life changing prophetic word that sat me free when I thought I committed the unpardonable sin and I didn't tell a soul about what I was going though and a prophetess named Ruth gave me a very accurate word from God on that He loved me and forgave me. And I not only got a life changing word but healed from some painful stomach cramps. I felt so much love from God that day and I am so glad He spoke to me though Ruth. It would have been horrible to live the rest of my life thinking that I committed the unpardonable sin. I went though a whole week believing I committed the unpardonable sin and it was hell believing this. I am so glad God loved me enough to let me know that I did not committed the unpardonable sin.
I am just being honest with you at where i am at in all this and I hope this is ok to be open and honest at where I am. Maybe I should explain that I am Charismatic/Pentecostal. Do I 100% agree with the Pentecostals no. Because I still love wearing my make up and jewel and I still love rock and roll. But do I raise my hands in church and dance and sing yes. And operate in the gifts of the spirit yes. And I find that God loves me no matter what. But I also have learned to be more open minded to things. My Charismatic friends would not like that I am open to the fact there could be life on other planets, that reincarnation could be possible, and that ghosts are just people that have died that need to cross over into the light. For them ghosts, aliens, and reincarnation are all demonic. So yes I can agree on a lot of things and disagree on a lot of things regardless of the Christian religion that I am hanging out with.
I wanted to say that I don't believe any style of music is demonic but I do believe that the words is what makes the music good or evil. It isn't the beat that makes a piece of music evil. I sure hope that the music in heaven has a nice beat to it. I don't like hard rock or rap but that is just my taste. I am sure there is Christian rape, and I know there is Christian hard rock but I just don't like that kind of music. Maybe God likes all styles of music that praise Him. I kind of think He likes classic and orchestra type music.
