Overcome The Demon Assigned Against Pastors
You are receiving this raw Word from Jesus about Caiaphas, the Fake Preacher, just as it was given to me. It took two days to get it out and ordered according to the Holy Spirit’s will. Let us value it and change our hearts where we see from Him the need to change.
This message was published, originally, on August 23, 2019 and republished for Monday February 3, 2020 with revisions for preciseness.
Caiaphas was first and foremost, “a proud and haughty spirit” concerning his knowledge of the Holy Scriptures and the role that the Scriptures established him in. He loved to use the written words from God (Scriptures) as a means to praise himself in his knowledge of the Scriptures. Worse, however, he loved to use the written words of God to spurn or flat out reject Jesus’ authority from God and Christ’s pioneering new way of “humility” and “compassion”. Christ’s way of humility grieved Caiaphas — because the spirit of Caiaphas suffers excruciating pain at the thought of humbling himself.
Yes, demons do suffer … demons suffer excruciating mental and emotional pain, and fear, when faced with humbling themselves. That’s why you must deal with them strict … tough love (for yourself or others) when you observe them trying to encroach upon yourself or through someone toward you.
9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.
10 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.
11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.
12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.
Caiaphas spent all his days trying to convince others to regard him as great with God. If they did not, he used force! He was very possessive (territorial) about public religious superiority via public religious authority.
Secretly in his heart, he suffered excruciating mental and emotional pain at just the thought of admitting before Jesus and the people that he was not all he had publicly put forth himself to be or “thought himself to be” with God.
The demon spirit whom Caiaphas chose to serve was working to destroy the influence and even presence of Jesus from the earth. The demon moved Caiaphas (with the deliberate cooperation of Caiaphas’ own will) to go out of his normal routine as a religion leader, taking extreme actions, to accomplish the discrediting, silencing, and removal of Jesus Christ.
Jesus “rawness” with God was gnawing at Caiaphas, for he knew that he did not have the kind of relationship with God that Jesus had. The spirit of Caiaphas comes upon persons in religious AUTHORITY who, secretly, envy the devotion of others who attest to being sent by Christ as his bonafide preachers. This envy makes him or her “push” to attract attention to himself as a great teacher or leader in itJesus Christ, but it manifests itself, spiritually, in viewable actions of contempt or disrespect for others who are bonafide preachers “sent” by Jesus.
Bottom line: The Proud and Haughty Spirit of Caiaphas is all about:
Caiaphas “envied Jesus” for influence that Jesus had upon people whom Caiaphas counted as his own territory! The loving and honest effect of the Spirit of God through Jesus Christ was received by humble persons seeking true, direct, and intimate relationship with God. God’s love flowing through Jesus was exposing a “dark” contrast between Caiaphas’ outward religious practices and God’s gentle, but firm method of governing or leading.
Jesus proved that Caiaphas’ heart was not “genuine” in seeking to know God the way God wanted to be known and taught! The proof was observed in the fact that Caiaphas was not passionately seeking nor following Jesus to hear and obey JESUS – the CHRIST!
Instead, Caiaphas challenged Jesus every step of the way. Wherever Jesus went, whatever Jesus said; and for each parable, Caiaphas and his peers with the synagogue members (like church) dared to voice an opposing opinion or discrediting accusation. Like Korah in Numbers Chapter 16, the desire to be in charge mounted into a “meeting” against the one with the anointing. The meeting was with Judas — but today the meeting can be with any like-minded preachers who want to silence a raw love for Jesus that does not pass their own seminary-trained or Bible College-trained, or even “peer-trained” approval.
Have you assembled any of these kinds of “meetings” to self-promote your church or ministry?
3 Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,
The same demon spirit that influenced Caiaphas is still walking the earth carrying out Satan’s will in some pastors and preachers.This is why Jesus said in the vision to me in 2011:
“Many of my Pastors, who have done great works in the eyes of the community … WILL go to hell.
So, keep yourself from all forms of ‘self-promotion'”.
The Lord Jesus Christ to Minister Clark, 2011
The kind of rule that Jesus Christ commanded us to live and advance in His Kingdom is as different as day and night from what we are taught in the world as “having rule over” or being in charge”. If you are a preacher preoccupied, or even obsessed, with “having rule over others”, you are already a part of Satan’s dark presence expanding his footprint in the earth before Jesus returns.
Our Lord Jesus warns us:
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
24 And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.
25 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.
26 But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.
27 For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.
Notice that people who covet for “position” are attracted, drawn to, and do hang with others of like mind! That is why Judas Iscariot, the traitor, went away from Jesus Christ and took great measures to seek out and agree with Caiphas. He needed to reinforce his evil attitudes through hanging with others who coveted such and would support him rather than ask/tell him to REPENT (admit the evil attitude, forsake the evil attitude, and OBEY JESUS).
Change Your Friends To Avoid Demon Spirits Like Caiaphas
It is a dangerous undertaking — who you hang with for spiritual enrichment whether among Christian brethren or preachers! All those in my 2011 vision from Jesus were pastors and preachers who had done great works “in the eyes of their communities” … but entered Hell because their hearts were evil “in the eyes of God”.
All were praising one another and copying one another’s ways of “doing church” and ministry. All were content and even proud of their achievements in church and ministry. THEY HAD NO CLUE THAT GOD WAS NOT PLEASED!
They had no clue because their only observation of themselves was through the eyes of one another! Their arrogance was not wise enough to always leave room for God to reach you through means outside your chosen circle of “friends”. To hundred and fifty very famous preacher-friends of Korah died with him under the judgment of Almighty God!
For pastors and preachers in our time, perhaps, they were taught the way of “a high look” among peers in Bible College. Perhaps, they were taught the way of “a proud heart” by other preachers they prayed with in regular pastoral prayer meetings. Perhaps, they brought the way of “fierceness” with them from how they were raised in a home filled with fierce persons, being taught how to make it in this world and, now, see church as a competitive battle. Perhaps, they were groomed to be”arrogant” and “airing with your mouth whatever you feel” ( a froward tongue). There are so many ways that we can all fall into these patterns of “preacher-pride”.
No matter how we all arrived in some way to practice these abominable attitudes about ourselves, God’s attitude against it does not change. He is never “with us” even while we continue to do church and ministry and see His mighty hand of mercy and grace continuing to use us for the peoples’ sakes.
13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
12 A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.
13 He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;
14 Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.
15 Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.
16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
20 My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
JESUS – The Narrow, Meek, and Lowly Way
We have become so adjusted to being FIERCE within the churches that, now, Christians at large despise and have contempt for other Christians who are gentle, kind, and tenderhearted. I have even seen preachers get in the pulpit and mock those kind of CHRISTIANS and scorn tenderness as not a quality of God! Is that not an abominable change from who we once were and what the world once respected and knew us by!
Christ warns us that haughtiness and fierceness are companions. While admired in the world, those who live by it are destined for the second death w hich is the Lake of Fire and Brimstone succeeding Hell.
Jesus will never tolerate either haughtiness or fierceness. It is not a personality trait in Christ Jesus nor a way of treating people. It is not the way of the Kingdom of God. It is not the way of His royal law of love and it is not the way of the Holy Spirit.
Haughtiness and fierceness is the way of Caiaphas. It is the presence and power of a demon spirit from Satan on any person “in rule” who is willing to yield oneself to him.
It is the way of an Imposter Christian.
2Ti 3:1-5 –
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
This Word from our Lord was given through Paul to Christians — not the world!
The way of Jesus Christ is GENTLENESS, but with FIRMNESS.
So, let us return to Jesus’ way. Let us not make Caiaphas the head of our ministry training. Jesus’ way will bring us the instant rest and refreshing of His Presence — which Jesus plans for our lives and our ministries.
