God is Pruning Those With a "Judas Mentality" and Raising-Elevating "Pure" Worsh
Good Morning My Loves, Do you know your destiny and vision? My destination is at the feet of Jesus. My vision can be summarized in one word, “Jesus.” My journey or “life calling” is to help others fulfill their destinies to be at His feet worshiping him in “spirit and in truth,” both now and for eternity. It is to bring Him what he deserves, and that is “pure” worship. In this season I’m sowing into those whom God has highlighted to me as “pure worshipers,” because I want to raise up a crop and yield a harvest of what the Father seeks. I’ve asked God to prune those with the “Judas mentality” from my life. It’s His goodness to remove that which is diseased, dying, and poisonous. John 4:23-24 (AMP)
23 But a time is coming and is already here when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit [from the heart, the inner self] and in truth; for the Father seeks such people to be His worshipers. 24 God is spirit [the Source of life, yet invisible to mankind], and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” -We don’t have time to play games with those who have a “Judas mentality.”
-We don’t have time to be distracted by those who are greedy for position and power like lucifer.
-We don’t have time for the poisonous attitude of “self-promotion,” or entitlement. John 12:4-5 (AMP)
4 But Judas Iscariot, one of His disciples, the one who was going to betray Him, said, 5 “Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred denarii and [the money] given to the poor?” Those with a Judas mentality aren’t really interested in giving money to the poor as Judas suggested here, they’re simply bothered by extravagant displays of worship of Jesus because they carry the DNA of their father the devil. He hated the worship of Jesus, and greedily desired it for himself.
Judas’s are only into following Jesus as long as there’s a paycheck and a position, but not interested in abandoning themselves in worship like Mary at the feet of Jesus. In fact they see that as wasteful. They’d rather throw Jesus a little spare change, perhaps sing him one song (but not too loud or with any passion), or try to fit him into their schedule as long as it might benefit them. But they don’t have "a heart” that desires to connect with Him, and they criticize and find fault with those that do. When it doesn’t appear that there’s anything in it “for them,” they split and look for someone else to manipulate, take advantage of, or that will promote their selfish agenda.
-They’re around Jesus (the presence of God), but always have a selfish agenda.
-They’re known for their false kisses, I love you’s, I’m here for you’s, etc…but not their humility, obedience, or submission. They’re constantly thinking:
-How is this going to benefit ME?
-How is this going to get ME to the next level.
-How is this going to promote or advance “MY” ministry, business, etc…
-Can I be a follower of Jesus and still be involved in ____________? Judas is more interested in “self-preservation” than abandoning “self” and giving it all to Jesus. Instead of “I’m a follower of Jesus and I accept and obey “truth” as part of my worship to Him,” a Judas will “hate truth,” but become a “play-actor,” a “pretend worshiper,” as long as it serves his self-interests. They may have all the same outward movements and even be involved in Kingdom activities, but their heart is far from Him. Worship is more than outward action, it’s about a pure and submitted heart. God is pruning those with the Judas mentality off of “true” houses of worship. If you are a “true” house of worship, accept it as God’s goodness and stay at His feet in this season! My beloved, true worship can never be about the worshiper. It must always be about the One Worshiped.
God is aising up a generation of “pure worshipers,” who love the Giver more than the gifts. They realize it’s not about the best gifts, the best voice, the most trained musicians, dancers, artists, etc… Skill is important, but the HEART IS THE MOST IMPORTANT!
These worshipers are going to cause a cosmic shift over nations in these end-times. They will open heaven and cause the government of God to be established in territories that have been in bondage to the enemy for generations. They are preparing the way of the Lord so that the harvest of souls can come forth and into His throne room. They are worshipping intercessors, and prophetic warriors who will be instrumental in bringing Jesus the reward of his suffering. In the mighty name of Jesus, I decree and declare that my house shall be a house of prayer, filled and overflowing with such “pure worshipers,” and so will yours!
I love you all! PV (The Wisdom Love Letters by Verna Brown)
