Many of you may have heard of “Face To Face.”
David E. Kelly claims to have seen Jesus in a face to face encounter.
Notice the picture of “Jesus.”
It’s a dead give away.
I’m not saying that this photo or any photo that David E. Kelly uses is an actual photo of Jesus.
Most people post these and other photos which is complete error on their part to attract the gullible.
Only the gullible will be duped by this false prophet.
There’s also some pictures on his FB page and website of clouds that appear to have a face in them and the beholder is duped into thinking that this is Jesus.
The Bible is clear.
1 John 4:12
“No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.”
No one living today knows what the Lord looks like outwardly.
Especially when the Bible says, 1 John 3:2 (NKJV Strong’s) “Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”
Many people will ignore these Scriptures and that’s where the danger is.
If David E. Kelly were serious, he wouldn’t post these pictures to deliberately mislead people.
But first, it’s all over the Internet that Vicki Yohe, a Christian singer, appeared on YouTube to explain a serious situation involving sexual immorality between her and David E. Taylor for 16 months.
Some of you may be familiar with David E. Kelly.
He gave a deposition regarding using ministry money for unlawful personal purposes. His answers were very crafty and questionable.
Now we’ve seen this before when another false teacher talked about angelic visitations while involved in adultery. He performed these sins even while well known Christian leaders were on stage, endorsing his ministry.
His name is Todd Bentley.
The saying goes…..“Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”
When you hear strange doctrines coming from people, if you don’t know your Bible and the God of the Bible, it’s very easy to be deceived.
And that’s not all.
More likely than not, sexual immorality is closely associated with it.
The point is simple. When there’s strange doctrines involved, sexual immorality will be closely associated.
Peter said these words in 2 Peter chapter 2 and verse 14….“…having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children.”
In a recent video of David E. Taylor, he claims to be saying that pastors are speaking against his “divine ministry.”
People need to put their big boy pants on and keep it moving. If someone speaks against your ministry, welcome to the club.
You don’t have to act possessive and childish.
That’s the difference between His Kingdom and your empire.
Throughout his discourse, there’s no denial of the allegations of being sexually involved with Vicki Yohe. Usually, if there’s false allegations, a person will defend their integrity.
To be charged with adultery, or with any kind of sexual immorality like porn, masturbation, prostitution, homosexuality, etc., when you’re involved in a very “powerful” ministry, you would do everything in your power to defend yourself against the charges, IF YOU’RE INNOCENT.
Instead, we see people use the same spiritual cliche’s that are hollow.
“If you speak against me and my powerful ministry, God will get you.”
The sad thing is, we all know that people have walked away from his “ministry.”
What also tends to happen is that he will do everything in his power to stop the bleeding. He’s being attacked. So, he is counter punching. It’s not that he’s being attacked.
He’s being EXPOSED.
Now regarding his claim of “visitation” of the Lord Jesus in a face to face encounter, it’s clear to me that the Lord does appear to people from time to time, but if such divine encounters occurred, it’s so sacred, that people will have a marked changed about them and they will more than likely not advertise the encounter.
In Vicki Yohe’s YouTube video, if memory serves me correct, she accused David Kelly of being involved with another woman and he dumped Yohe. If this is true, if you’ve had an encounter with the Lord Jesus, you would NEVER engage in conduct that would bring questions to your walk in the Lord.
True ministers of the Lord are more concerned about the integrity of their relationship with God than with their ministry. In fact, more often than not, a minister can do without ministry.
You love the Lord more than the “ministry.”
So David E. Kelly’s claim to have had a Face To Face encounter with Jesus, if these allegations are true, are very suspect at best.
Then you have the very words of Jesus Himself in Matthew 24, verse 11
“Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.”
Matthew 24:23-28 (NKJV Strong’s)
“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.
Did you notice the two places that Jesus mentioned that false prophets will use to attract you to them?
Look…Here is the Christ.
Look…There is the Christ.
Look…He is in the desert.
Look…He is in the inner rooms.
These two places, the desert, and inner rooms are locations.
The desert is dry and the inner rooms are overt and covert secrets.
David E. Kelly said in one video about an “elite anointing.”
No such thing in the Bible.
They all begin with “Look.”
In order for you to look, you have to believe what they’ve said they’ve seen.
Always take with a grain of salt those that said they’ve seen the Lord and then they tell you to come and “look.”
Has anyone noticed that no one says that they’ve seen satan?
We must remember that people are hungry for a spiritual encounter with the Lord but they’re looking in places where Jesus isn’t there.
Here’s another thing.
They always have “spooky music.”
Most keyboardists know that “stringed” instruments pull on the emotions of people and they become more open to “spiritual” things with the right keys and chords.
Personality people on stages can’t do without it.
Music is a power few don’t resist.
But here’s another thing.
It also disarms the unsuspecting, if you yield, you surrender common sense, you disarm due diligence in investigating these hucksters, and once they do these things, they completely abandon the correct teachings of the Scriptures.
Paul said in 2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NKJV Strong’s) “…for the time will come when they (believers) will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”
In one video, where David E. Kelly was talking, while some may feel bad about him, we should feel even worse for the ones that were on the stage behind him.
It breaks my heart to look at people being deceived.
But the houses where there’s full of people, Proverbs 14:15 is all over the place.
If there’s ever a time we need to be even more discerning, it’s these times. But it’s a clear moment that we all should be aware of.
The coming of the Lord is imminent.
False prophets are rising with more frequency.
Paul said in 2 Timothy 3:13 (NKJV Strong’s) “But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
Take the time to investigate their fruit.
The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 7:15-20 (NKJV Strong’s) “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”
So at this time, it’s best to declare “Face To Face” as a very suspecting event and to steer clear of things like this. You can get more watching a man milk a goat than a man speaking great swelling idle words.
It’s when a person had their sin exposed that you would find them contrite and broken in their hearts for departing from the Lord and entering into sin.
A person will do one of two things.
If he’s innocent, fight the charges.
If they’re guilty, “Godly sorrow that works repentance, leading to salvation…”
Regarding David E. Kelly, we’ve seen him fight the charges but when you use a lot of spiritual cliche’s that we’ve heard before from other personality false prophets caught in sin, it’s clear that something isn’t right.
What is David E. Kelly also fighting?
To keep getting PAID.
If the money stops, you have to work for a living.
Paul said, “For the love of money is the root of all evil.”
You can’t sit a false prophet down. And you can’t make a false prophet sit down.
Ladies. Learn to guard your heart according to Proverbs 4:23.
Learn to be a lot more discerning and not allow yourself to be captured by the smooth words of a false prophet.
Sadly, Vicki Yohe got taken because many women that are gullible.
Ladies, don’t be another victim.
If you’re thinking about getting close to a man of God, if he’s married, you have no right even thinking about it.
Keep your heart clean.
If you see a ring on him, walk away from him.
It’s not worth the fires of hell for one moment of pleasure.
