Revelation 2:9 “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, but thou art rich and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”
A 55-year-old self-styled prophet from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, who said he went to heaven one Christmas after a heart attack, was charged Wednesday for using the telephone number of his ministry to run a house of prostitution which he fronted as a massage parlor.
One must be very careful when following the preaching and teachings of these self appointed prophets and apostles. The Bible says you shall know them by their fruits.
Matthew 7:16-20 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither [can] a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
If you can’t discern…….., then you best get saved!
1st Corinthians 2:14 “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
Prosecutors in Tulsa County allege the Rev. Walter Eugene Brazington Jr., of the All Nations Ministry Evangelistic Team attempted to “encourage, induce or persuade women to become inmates of a house of prostitution,” according to documents cited by the Tulsa World. He was also charged with possession of a firearm while in the commission of a felony.
Tiffany Ann Roach, 40, an HIV positive woman who investigators caught negotiating with a client at the prophet’s business, was also arrested.
Brazington explained on his ministry’s website that he was directed by the Lord to preach the Gospel during his heavenly visit in 2008.
“While in heaven on December 25th, 2008, after having a massive heart attack, the Lord directed me to preach on the second coming of Christ. The Lord said that He wants the church to repent of its lukewarm state, repent of sin, repent of dead works, and to re-enter the harvest (2nd Chronicles 7:14 KJV). Although more than anything else, Jesus loves his church. He is not angry with us. He eagerly awaits our homecoming. Heaven’s beauty is beyond belief. I love to share what I saw in heaven, the love of Christ, and what he told me about the last days,” he stated.
He also promised to preach “repentance from sin” at any church that welcomes his ministry team.
“Pastors, when ANET is brought into your church as an outside ministry, we will preach (in love and in a gentle manner) holiness and repentance from sin. We will preach the good news and lay hands on the sick. We will also teach the body of Christ how to enter the harvest field and succeed at winning hearts to Christ. We will help your church find a hunger for the harvest — a hunger they never knew existed,” he said.
Investigators say that they had Brazington’s business under surveillance for more than a month and a half before they raided it on Nov. 20.
