Heart to Heart Talk

December 27, 2012

Someone recently did a search on the Internet which said “lone and misguided Brannan.” They were of course referring to me and consider me misguided. Oh, if that could be the truth! I would be happy if I was misguided in this case. I would rejoice that I was wrong. I do not want to happen what I have been saying is going to happen. But you see; I am God’s watchman for this nation. I see what is coming. Just like Jeremiah saw and gave warning; I am giving warning. Someone has to deliver this message. I cannot depend on anyone else to deliver this message properly. God put this specific burden on me to get his message out to this country whether people want to think I am misguided or not.

It is true I criticize people and organizations in this blog. It is necessary because there is baggage there that is going to suffer loss if their house is not put in order. God is bringing judgment on the Church and this nation. Anything that cannot survive the burning fire will be burned off. That is what a cleansing fire does. God wants to purify this country and the church in it. All will go through the fire and suffer loss. There can be no exceptions. God demands holiness, and so it is best to get one’s house in order now rather than having to face the wrath of God which will purify that which is not pure.

Why is it so difficult to turn back to God? I do not have any doubt that the person who did this search considers them-self to be a born-again Christian. My message is simple. Turn back to God in this country and repent. If the people in this nation will do that, then God can restore things back to the way they used to be when we were prosperous. We could have a prosperous economy and our children could pray in school again. Is that too much to ask? Am I the one who is misguided when I call for this nation to return to God? No, the person who considers me to be misguided does not want things to change. I have to be wrong and misguided so they do not have to take the hard step of getting back on track with God’s will. You see; the faith walk is truly a very difficult path to take.

There would have never been a Jeremiah or an Isaiah if they had not taken a step of faith and spoken out what God was telling them. I have done the same. Judge me by what I have said, and see if it comes to pass. Do not make the mistake of judging me, but rather the word. God will judge those who speak out against his prophets. Judge what I have said and determine yourself if I am a prophet or not; but do not judge the person. You do not know if I am hearing from God or not. To make a statement on something where you are not there to know one way or the other whether it is true or not is to speak unwittingly on a subject. God will not hold you guiltless for judging someone in this case.

My book talks about people saying the economy will recover. Is  it recovering? In reality, are we not still  in a recession? Is it not true the real unemployment number is still high? Many people are no longer on the unemployment rolls,  because they have  given up trying to search for a job. God says in my book, “To the pastors and priests in the United States and to all others: do not believe the words of peace and prosperity for this country. Do not accept the lie of the economy recovering and becoming strong again. Bring your necks under the bondage of your king in the White House. Why should I level your cities with great destruction because of your resistance to my words? If those prophets of yours that tingle your ears speak truth, then let them intercede for you that your king will not increase his burden on you yet once more. Be aware: this spirit ruling your land will take all your prosperity and send it to other lands.”

Judge me on words like this and see if what I have been saying has turned out to be true or not. Look and see where your money is sent, and see if what I say God is saying is true or not. Where do you think your tax money is going to go after they raise taxes at the end of this year? Let us see who is right. Let us see if I am wrong. I truly wish I could be wrong, but all the signs are there I am right. There are no signs I am wrong. As mentioned before, “where the carcass is, the vultures will be gathered together.” The signs are there what I have been saying is true. Should we then not do  the most reasonable thing and try to turn back to God before things might get out of hand? Is that too much to ask?

Denying the Power Thereof

December 21, 2012

In Luke 5:17-26, Jesus is inside a house, and a man laying on a couch with an affliction described as a palsy is brought to him by those carrying the man. They cannot get to Jesus through the press, so they dig through the roof and lay the man before Jesus. Luke 4:17 says, “As Jesus was teaching, there were Pharisees (clergy) and doctors of the law sitting by which were come out of every town of Galilee, Judea and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.”

That power was not there just for that man, but for everybody present in that house. What happened in this case with all that power that was present? The man was healed, but in Luke 5:26 it says, “And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying ‘We have seen strange things today.'” Why were they amazed, and why were they fearful? It is because they grew up and in the case of the Pharisees, became priests but never came to accept that the power of God could be present in their lives to change things. They were denying the power thereof.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 says, “Know this! In the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy; without natural affection, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors,  heady,  high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” Does anything in these verses remind you of what happened in Connecticut recently with the massacre of 20 children and others?

The boy sure fit the description of a lot of what is said in these verses, but so does the church that was there eulogizing the victims of the massacre with President Obama present. They came into the service looking so sad and so powerless: they seemed more pathetic than anyone else present. They were not mad at the events that occurred. They were not looking for ways to take back what the enemy, Satan, had taken. They truly did not have a clue what to do. They were simply going to leave that up to Obama and other government officials to figure out. They truly were a church without power.

As Jesus was ready to depart into heaven, he left his disciples with words for his Church which would be born after he ascended into heaven. He said, “All of you go into the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name they shall cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” (Mark 16:15-18) Does that sound like a Church with no power? They were certainly doing those things in the book of Acts just like Jesus had said. They believed and just as Jesus said, “These signs shall follow them that believe.”

The problem with the established Church today is they do not believe and thus have no power. They typify what is said in 2 Timothy 3:1-5. They have a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof. They have made themselves completely subservient to the government, and that is why they never speak out against what has been going on in this country the last several decades. They see themselves as powerless and thus will never get involved.

That is the type of church mentioned in 2 Timothy 3:5  from which we must turn away. Jesus did say to turn away from this type of church. Why? Because they are full of all those sins listed in the earlier verses; just like the boy who murdered all those children and adults. They go through the motions of saying they know God, but in truth they deny the very power God gave us over the enemy. That same power could take back our cities from the mass killers and restore order to our cities and our nation. This notion is foreign to the established Church and so they like those Pharisees and lawyers  are amazed when the power of God actually manifests itself in our world.

We need a Church that believes in the power of God. We do not need a Church which says, “The power of God ceased to be after the book of Acts.” That is simply an excuse not to believe. When Jesus speaks, he speaks to his Church throughout all ages. He does not want to return to a weak and powerless Church. He said, “From such turn away.” Jesus is coming back for a victorious Church, and until the Church starts believing everything Jesus said, it will never have power, and it will let this country fall into chaos and destruction.

The Elijah List Fallacy

December 13, 2012

I went to the Elijah List website and contacted them about submitting a word. If you are not familiar with this site, it is a site where prophetic words are posted. They sent me back an email stating word for word the following:

3) Words from anyone that has never had a word published on The Elijah List must always be accompanied by a short bio of the person writing the article submitted (no more than one paragraph). Again, do not use  attachments.                                 4) A name or names of who you are associated with or related to in ministry. We don’t normally consider for publication any word by a person who has built no relationships with others in prophetic ministry. In other words, we look for those who involve themselves with team ministry, joint accountability, etc. If someone can vouch for the accuracy of given words, that’s even better. With over 115,000 subscribers and 21,000+ Facebook readers receiving this daily word, we must be cautious to post only the “best of the best” words that have been tried and tested by others. 

I only listed the third and fourth points; because that is the important part I will be talking about here.

What does God’s word say about giving prophetic words? “Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge. If anything be revealed to another that sits by, let the first hold his peace. For you may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn and all may be comforted.        (1 Cor.  14:29-31). 

God’s method of having prophetic words delivered is for everyone who has a word to be allowed to give it. The word is what is judged. However, at the Elijah List, it is the prophet who is judged rather than the word. This is contrary to the Word of God and gives Satan a foothold to manipulate things. And guess what: Satan has manipulated things. Who would have thought of such a thing?

You might ask how he has manipulated things. The answer is very simple. On that site various words are given. However, there are multiple words that speak of God blessing America in these next few years and there are words that say God is judging America. These two words are contrary to each other and cannot coexist. Someone has to be wrong. God cannot bless that which is cursed. Either America is under God’s blessings, or it is under his curses. There is no gray area.

What does God’s word say? (I will shorten it a great deal here, but you can read about being under the curses on my blog piece entitled, “The United States Under the Curse.”) The Word says,  “But it shall come to pass, if you will not hearken to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes, which I command you this day; that all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you: cursed shall be your basket and store (your economic situation)…the stranger shall lend to you, and you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head and you shall be the tail. (Deut. 28:15, 17, 44).

Today, the United States is the greatest debtor nation in the world. We used to be the lender. Our economic situation is bad and not really improving. When did this all occur? Starting in the fall of 2008 our economy turned down and has stayed there. Of course we have gradually become more and more in debt over a longer period of time, but now we are truly in a very critical situation with our debt. Does this sound like we are under God’s blessings? Not according to Deuteronomy 28: we are under God’s curses. So who do you believe when you read someone’s prophecy at the Elijah List website? See how Satan has manipulated things. He brings confusion and waters down God’s words. The Elijah List in trying to be so careful about choosing the best prophets has succeeded in not only not getting the best of the best, but has watered down God’s warning to us about what is headed our way in this country.

In my book God speaks to America and says, “Take the blinders off your eyes, America, and begin to weep and mourn over my judgment to come. I have removed my presence from you, and with the absence of my presence comes my wrath…I have constantly from your founding to this day commanded you to observe my laws, and yet after all my blessings on this country I have been ignored. Everyone in this country pursues all the evil he can produce from his own heart. Because you have done this, then I must remove my blessings from this nation and release my curses upon it.” 

Do you see that from that last sentence how blessings and curses cannot coexist? Once again, God cannot bless that which is cursed. God can only bless the nation that follows his commandments. The United States is hardly following God’s commandments with the murdering of unborn babies and taking prayer out of the schools and such like. God tolerated it for a while but has said the day of reckoning is here. 

This is what God says regarding the prophets prophesying peace and good times for America. “Therefore, do not listen to those who prophesy peace and good times for America—they are speaking a lie. I did not send them to speak. They are getting you to believe a lie so that you will be scattered and removed from this land with those deceitful prophets.” This is the crux of the matter. False words are being spoken on the Elijah List and thus the Elijah List has maneuvered itself into falling under God’s wrath for watering down his word. God will not tolerate the watering down of his word when he is bringing judgment. The Elijah List is doing this. Just read the book of Jeremiah to get a feel of how much God speaks about watering down his words of warning. 

Matthew 24:24-28 says, “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say to you, ‘Behold he is in the desert;’ go not forth: ‘Behold, he is in the secret chambers;’ believe it not. For as the lightning comes out of the east and shines to the west; so shall the coming of the Son of man be. For wherever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.” Let us substitute vultures for eagles here to better understand what is said. We all know how vultures fly over head when something is dead or dying on the ground. This verse is saying we should look for the signs (like vultures flying over a carcass) to determine if a prophetic word is correct or not. If there are no signs, then those prophets are false prophets. 

There are no signs of America moving into blessings from God. The signs we are under his curses are obvious for all to see. Who then is right? Is it the prophets like me or the prophets prophesying blessings for America? God does bless his children in times like these, but when we are talking about the whole country, then it is a totally different matter. So, the Elijah List has failed to do the job God requires of it. It has strayed from the Word of God and produced an elitist sort of clientele it allows on its site to give words and ignored people with no prophetic ministry ties; judging them as unreliable. Who are they to judge who is unreliable? God knows who is and is not, and that is why he spelled out in 1 Corinthians 14 that the word should be judged and not the prophet.

Obama the Savior

December 9, 2012

Another prophecy has come out regarding Obama. This one is of a typical type starting with the day he was inaugurated president back in January of 2009. Christians keep prophesying Obama will have his eyes opened by God and will start doing things God wants done in this country. This person said we have not been praying for the president and we must start doing that, and then we will see a change in Obama brought about by God. Oh, if only that were true!

It is true we should be praying for Obama and our other leaders, but that does not always change the people that are leading us. Prayer can certainly affect the outcome of events. It can prevent bad leaders from getting the results they want. However, expecting Obama to change simply by praying for a change in him is showing a great deal of naivety. Obama is a symptom of our spiritual state in this nation. God wants to cure the root of the problem, and then the symptom of the problem will go away. What is the root of the problem? We have turned away from God in this country, and God demands that we repent. Until we do that, Obama is not going to change.

In my book, there is a prophecy which told me when I wrote it over 3 years ago that Obama would win reelection. There is more to the prophecy than that little piece of information. Let’s look at the prophecy in that section of my book:

“Do not let the prognosticators and false prophets tell you the power
of the spirit of Nebuchadnezzar will be broken in the next election. I
will increase its stranglehold over you. It will finish the work I have
sent it to accomplish. Those who have their hearts full of evil will not
return to plague this country again. I will remove them from this land,
and where they go is where they shall remain. Let us have a contest to
see whose words will prevail. Shall the false prophets who prophesize
of my judgment being cut short before its job is finished be correct, or
shall the truth be found in the prophet who says this work is a long
one? To cut this work short would be to sanction the sin that exists
today and let it come back to fill this land. I shall finish this work and
expunge all the evil filling its borders.”

God’s purpose for Obama being in office is to bring judgment on this country because we have abandoned God. For God to change Obama now would only let the evil that reigns in our society continue to go unchecked. It is like people expecting God to say, “I will change Obama, but everyone else in this country can continue to live as they have and ignore me.” This is not going to happen. God placed Obama into this position as president to lead us to either destruction or nationwide repentance. All the tribulations that are coming in the next several months and years are certainly going to get people’s attention in this country just as the events of 9/11. The question is, will we turn back to God or not despite the coming events. I for one am very skeptical we will, but one thing is for sure; God is going to bring us to a point where we have to make that decision to save this country. Will we listen?

2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people who are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” This is the way God gives us to fix things in this country. It all starts with us as individuals. Trying to change Obama is not getting to the root of the problem. There are too many false prophets out there doling out false hope.

Matthew 24:24-28 says, “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say to you, ‘Behold he is in the desert;’ go not forth: ‘Behold, he is in the secret chambers;’ believe it not. For as the lightning comes out of the east and shines to the west; so shall the coming of the Son of man be. For wherever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.”

The last verse tells us that we should look for signs from all these words we hear from prophets. “For wherever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.”  What are the signs that Obama will change. These prophets have been saying since the day Obama was inaugurated he would be a savior. I have not seen any sign. There is no carcase showing me their words are true. These prophets have to be judged as false prophets. We are responsible for examining any word any prophet says, because false prophets always abound in this world. Past successes in prophecies mean nothing. Prophets can be right on the mark with God one day and be deceived the next. Never let past successes in prophesies cause you to stop examining any new prophecy these prophets give.

God says in my book he is going to punish all prophets who preach about cutting short God’s judgment on this nation. I do not want to be in their shoes. These prophets are not going to escape his judgment on this country. It is time to stop listening to false hope and deal with what is truly wrong with our nation. We are the problem. We have become rich and fat and forgotten about the God who created this country more than 200 years ago. Until we repent, no amount of praying for Obama will change what terrors are fast approaching us in the coming months and years.

It's Time to End the Tax-Exempt Status

December 5, 2012

I sent CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network) headed by Pat Robertson a piece from my blog which contained the prediction that Obama would win reelection. I was not saying in the piece that we should support one candidate or the other. However, I received an email from them in which they said they cannot support any candidate for office. Why were they so defensive to get that out of what I had said in my blog? I had not mentioned that at all about who to support. What were they trying to protect?

It is extremely obvious what they were trying to protect. They were trying to protect their tax-exempt status. This is the very tool Satan has used all these decades to keep the Church quiet while he systematically dismantles this country from the foundations God laid for this country through our Founding Fathers. All these decades, more and more of our freedoms and moral principles have been undermined by a growing government, and the Church has remained quiet. Why? Because, they were told by the government they would lose their tax-exempt status if they spoke up.

It is time to stop letting Satan call the shots. It is time to stand up to the moral dismantling of our society by leftists. It is time to rise up and say, “To hell with my tax-exempt status!” It is time to take back what the enemy has stolen. It is time to rise up and save this country before it is totally destroyed by God’s wrath. There is very little time left to do this. It truly is now or never in this next term of Obama.

Let us examine the true spirit behind the desire to have a tax-exempt status by the churches. God said, “You shall have no other gods before me.” (Exodus 20:3) What are the churches, CBN and others worrying about when they are afraid of losing their tax-exempt status? They are afraid of the extra expense they will incur when they lose that status. What is more important to them, then? When they choose to not take a position on a moral issue to protect their financial status, then there is no question: they place money as being more important than God. I do not care how much they have helped others through Operation Blessing and through other ministries; when they choose that money is more important than God in any situation, then they are worshipping a false god.

It is because of CBN’s silence and the Church’s silence all these decades when prayer was taken out of our schools, abortion became legal, etc. that we have the predicament we are in today. We get bad leaders who do not know God, our money spent to a state of bankruptcy by the government, and so on that God has finally said, “Enough! I have given you your chance. If you do not rise up now and take back this country, then this country and you, their watchmen, will all face my wrath and this nation shall be destroyed.”

It is time for God’s Church to shake off the satanic shackles of the tax-exempt status and start taking this country back for God. God has lost his patience with us and within four years, all those who are today protecting their tax-exempt status will not have any money or nation to worry about any more. We will truly be in a dark and chaotic time within these next four years. If you are worried about your money now; just wait four years when God will have stripped you of all you have.

“You wicked and slothful servant. You knew I reap where I sowed not and gather where you have not strawed. You should have given my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have earned interest (i.e. fruit from your actions). Take therefore from him (my pansy Church) the talent (the job I have given my Church) and give to him who has ten talents (the ones in God’s Church who have no fear). For to everyone that has shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that has not shall have taken away even that little bit he has. And cast the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 25:26-30)

Note: There is always gnashing of teeth by those who are touched by God’s wrath, and weeping goes without saying.

Additional Information:  The tax-exempt status is first mentioned in ancient Egypt during Joseph’s time. The priests were exempt from taxes. These priests followed the false Egyptian gods, and thus the origins of the tax-exempt status are satanic. It was designed for the Church in our time to commit spiritual adultery with man-made governments.
