Self Promoters Not God Promoters
What man is justified putting his name in lights in the Name of the Lord, and what woman is justified doing so when she is not called to preach in the first place? God does not give His glory to another, and mixtures are destined for destruction.
Paul wrote to Gwen, a woman who said she is experiencing spiritual warfare and pressure:
What kind of spiritual warfare? Are you fighting against the powers of darkness, or are the powers of darkness in you fighting against God, unsettling you and robbing you of life and peace?
I have looked at your site (www.annegimenez.com), and the word I would use to describe it is “mixture.” You are mixing the things of God with your emotions, thoughts, carnal ideas, and doctrines of men. The end result is something neither edible nor usable. I know this is not what you want to hear, but consider that it is what you need to hear.
You recommend Anne Gimenez as a teacher of God. I went to her site, and can tell you right off the bat that one calling her site “Anne Gimenez Ministries,” is a false teacher, promoting herself, and not God. Can you see the apostle Paul setting up a website, and calling it, “Apostle Paul Ministries”?
He rebuked others for doing this very thing:
“For you are yet carnal. For in that there is among you envyings and strife and divisions, are you not carnal, and do you not walk according to men? For while one says, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are you not carnal? Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom you believed, even as the Lord gave to each? I have planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither is he who plants anything, nor he who waters, but God Who gives the increase” (1 Corinthians 3:3-7 MKJV).
I know Anne would quote these verses in utmost sincerity, with great conviction, as if her belief can substitute for obedience, but the Word of God tells us that every person is a liar, and not to believe people, but to believe Him and what He says, and to believe their fruits, and what those tell you. God does not ordain women as pastors to teach men, or do you not believe His Word (1 Timothy 2:12)? God does not give His Name or glory to another, for how should His Name be polluted, or do you not believe Him there, either (Isaiah 48:11)?
There are two articles in particular that you need to read, Gwen. There is nothing more important than the Lord Jesus Christ, Who is the Truth, so this is not something you can honestly tell me you do not have time to do. If you do not have time for this you do not have time at all, because your time is spent as a slave to the powers of darkness, and you will surely perish, just as the sons of God, those who mixed themselves with unholy seed, perished in the flood. If you are not a “son of God,” then you perish anyway as a heathen idolater. But all are called to repentance, and so we speak.
Here are the articles:
If you will read those, here are two others more pointed in helping you to realize that God, Jesus Christ, comes to save those who confess their offenses, not those who complain about being offended:
