Then the LORD reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, "Now, I have put my words in your mouth. See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant (Jer 1:9-10). If so, do you know that what occurred in the kingdoms of the Old Testament church (The Israelites) has for so long been happening in many of today's churches too! Whatever some of the Old Testament kings did in the sight of the Lord during their reigns- be it good or evil- many (false shepherds, prophets, priests, teachers and believers) are doing likewise in the Lord's churches today too.
In some the of the Lord's churches today, not only have many come in the spirit and power of Elijah (Luke 1:17). Many have actually come in the spirit and power of the Pharisees, the teachers of the law and Judas, Pharaoh, Aaron, Saul, Hophni and Phineas, Absalom, Rehoboam, Jeroboam, Ahab and, Balak and Balaam.
