One Shepherd, One Anointing

The visible church of today, and especially its recognized leaders, are quick to warn of what they see as the dangers of so-called “lone-wolf christianity.”

Aside from this being a manipulative and disengenuous rhetorical jab; it is usually an utter misrepresentation of those whom they so accuse. They themselves are in fact the ones placing themselves between men and God. It is their false and merely organizational authority which has led astray the sheep of the Good Shepherd from HIS Spiritual authority.

They often warn that if each member of Christ’s body only followed the anointing of His Spirit, in accordance with the gifts and callings apportioned by God to them, that there would be no order in the Body. Little do they recognize in their pride what chaos their rending of the True Head from the Body has actually sown, what it has already reaped, and what it will continue to reap.

They may even, to some extent, be feeding some of the sheep; nevertheless, God is long finished with their ways, and they must repent of their arrogance, insolence, and slander.

Thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require my sheep at their hand and put a stop to their feeding the sheep. No longer shall the shepherds feed themselves. I will rescue my sheep from their mouths, that they may not be food for them.

For thus says the Lord God: Behold, I, I myself will search for my sheep and will seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his sheep that have been scattered, so will I seek out my sheep, and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness.”

Ezekiel 34:10-12 (ESV)

  2. […] My fellow blogger points out that many “recognized leaders” of the visible church constantly warn of “lone-wolf christians.” (I strongly recommend this article). Funny enough, this is a common line from many of the men I have placed in my charts. Oh, and many of the men I have listed completely fail to separate from Elders-in-error. […]
