Prophetic Word: Sin By Leaders To Be Exposed

image

On 11/3/06, I was praying when the LORD spoke to my heart.

I quieted myself to listen and closed my eyes. I saw a map of the United States with pins dropping on certain cities:

Atlanta, GA
Portland, OR
Omaha, NE
Cleveland, OH
Topeka, KS
Washington, DC
Bangor, ME
Montgomery, AL

Then pins started dropping all over the place.

I heard the LORD say He is getting ready to expose sexual sin among leaders. He said a crackdown is coming where prophets and God himself will be sent in private to confront leaders involved in sexual sin.

If the leaders reject the opportunity, the sin will be exposed publicly. It will be harder on everyone and will benefit no one. For those who do repent, there will be a grace released to deal with the consequences.

Then the LORD said a new wave of holiness will hit the Church that is based on the fear of the LORD.

I began to pray for God’s mercy and He interrupted me and said that prayers need to be for soft hearts, contrite spirits, and those involved, the violated and the violators. He said He is already merciful in all His ways.

When I heard this word, I submitted it to my spiritual leaders for judgment and confirmation. They advised me to hold on to it because it wasn’t time to release it.

In October 2010, I contacted them again and asked if it was time. Again they didn’t think so.

Then on 11/5/11, almost five years to the day I received the word from the LORD, my hometown of State College, PA and main campus of Penn State, was rocked by allegations of child sexual abuse by a much respected and revered hometown hero. Its shock waves reverberated across the United States. Suddenly my hometown was famous for allegations of sexual atrocity.

In response, we started the 40 Days of Prayer for PSU because we needed a new season. As news of the 40 Days spread, we heard from others around the country. They were praying not just for Penn State, but for their cities and the United States. I approached my spiritual leaders again, and this time, we all agreed it was time to release the word.

I hope the allegations aren’t true. But whether they’re true or not, the fact remains that God will start publicly exposing leaders who are involved in sexual sin, and it will not be pretty.

I believe God has already started confronting leaders in private. To those leaders, I say it’s time to repent. Stop what you’re doing, confess your sins to God, tell a group of godly people who will help restore you, and accept the due consequences for your sin.

  1. God is so good, isn’t He Chris… and your patience is commendable… waiting on the Lord has never been one of my strong suits… wink  Love your blog posts… am praying for the new season with you all…

  2. Chris, thank you for sharing that word. It is powerful and true I believe not only for US but for the Body of Christ in Bulgaria and also in many other places all over the world. The Lord showed me few weeks ago how jealous is He of us because His loves us so much. What you share is so true: “He interrupted me and said that prayers need to be for soft hearts, contrite spirits, and those involved, the violated and the violators. He said He is already merciful in all His ways.” Thank you again!

  3. Years ago,  back in Charismatic Move days,  the prophetic word was coming out in many places with the scripture,  “judgement begins at the house of the Lord.”  and then Jimmy Swaggert was exposed publicly followed by Jim Baker.  and no doubt many others that were not publicly exposed.

    it is not just lusts of the flesh in leadership but conduct in all of us toward one another.  if we truly have honor for one another we will not violate one another with compromising looks,  or things like hugs with too much familiarity, or just so many other layers of interaction that are not holy before the most Holy One of all. 

  4. You know when to keep silent and when to speak. You keep the prophetic vision for almost 5 years. Your concern to your hometown shows your godly life, and walking in the spirit. If only leaders like Uzziah will listen to God and will keep (the) Zechariah like you, the land will be blessed.
    “He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, just as his father Amaziah had done.  He sought God during the days of Zechariah, who instructed him in the fear of God. As long as he sought the LORD, God gave him success”.
    (2 Chro. 26:4-5)

  5. hey Chris – Just wanted to affirm some words you recv’d from the Lord re: people confessing sexual sin, etc.  I know of at least one person/leader type who has recently confessed an area of sexual sin.  Remain faithful to what God keeps laying on your heart brother!
