God Judges Teachers Who Blaspheme His Word
January 30, 2017
It can easily be seen at my blog that a few years ago I was pointing in favor to Israeliteindeed’s blog. But when in 2014 she began to aggressively and repeatedly write against the nation of Israel, I had to let it be known that I no longer endorsed her views and her writings.
Last year, though I had not communicated with her personally for two years, I felt the Lord strongly urging me to send her a note of warning. I did so, and the first email below (I use her real name) is what I wrote. She responded with a short email that let me know she was not at all concerned and that others were quite happy with what she was writing.
Less than a month later, still feeling heavily burdened concerning her continued rebellion against the Lord and His Word, I wrote a short comment at her blog asking her why she did not go overseas to minister to Muslims since she seemed so distressed for them. She did not post my comment. However, she did respond with a very lengthy personal email and some photos of her family. I thanked her for sharing and said I would write more later that day, to which she responded with another long email.
The second email below is what I wrote later that evening, and I did so after intense prayer about what to write. Sadly, she responded to this one by letting me know that she had chosen to believe that I spoke, in that email as well as in some exhortations to her years ago, by a spirit not from the Lord. With such a rebuff from her, I did not respond to her again, though needless to say, being that I knew my warnings to her were indeed from the Lord, I felt even greater alarm and sadness for her and her family.
I am certainly not happy to write this post, but it is crucial that it be recognized that God does watch to see that His Word is fulfilled (Jer. 1:12) and to recognize that God is to be feared. (Luke 12:4,5) If a Bible teacher continues to blatantly dismiss the Lord’s clear statements in Scripture even while He brings His servants to warn that teacher, there is only suffering and punishment ahead for that rebellious one. Israeliteindeed has sinned appallingly against God, against His Word, against those she was responsible to be Christ-like toward, and against other teachers who walk in the Truth and work hard to spread the Truth.
When we walk in falsehood and self-righteousness and refuse to listen to the exhortations of those who are walking in the Holy Spirit, we open ourselves up to God’s discipline. If we continue the folly, we slide ourselves backwards under God’s wrath, for in order to remain in Christ and His love we must remain in His Word / in His Truth. (John 15:1-10) Israeliteindeed has turned from this, and has relentlessly tried to get others to deny multitudes of God’s clear statements, particularly regarding the nation of Israel and the End Times.
I do grieve deeply for Israeliteindeed and her family and I have been praying for two years that God spare her (and her family members) from sliding into Hell. Unfortunately, she has so far refused the warnings and discipline God has sent her time and again through others and through circumstances. While pounding away at other people, she has refused to quit her own sins of immense self-righteousness and of blasphemy against God’s Word.
We do, and we will, pray for her husband to be healed from cancer. But Hell is infinitely worse, and Israeliteindeed, a Bible teacher who has twisted the Truth to make falsehoods, has put herself and her hearers in danger of that. (1 Tim. 4:16 // Ja. 3:1) I exhort her to remove all the posts she wrote beginning in the early summer of 2014 through August of 2016. I exhort her to remove all of them so that no more can they influence others to disbelieve Scripture. I strongly believe that only if she will do this, will God bring blessing to her instead of punishment.
Here are the two emails:

I have read all your posts and am continually grieved. This morning I was very surprised to feel a strong impression from the Lord to write to you a personal note exhorting you to reevaluate your own heart and spirit. After praying, I asked the Lord to confirm in His Word if this was from Him. He did, for when I got my Bible, I opened right to Ezek. 18:24 which says, “But if a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits sin and does the same detestable things the wicked man does, will he live? None of the righteous things he has done will be remembered. Because of the unfaithfulness he is guilty of and because of the sins he has committed, he will die.” Then immediately I saw 20:4 where God commands, “Then confront them…” Truly, your writings are not Life. They are full of anger and self-righteousness and blindness; they are, with the exception of a small bit, not of the Spirit but are instead coming from your own energy, heart, and spirit. You are falling from the Lord and His Truth. Accusing America and others of it, you are continuing your own slide toward apostasy.
I urge you to take this warning very seriously as from the Lord, which it is. We will all, before the Judge on that Final Day, be giving an account of ourselves, including the attitudes of our heart, and the words we have said and written.

I woke up this last Sunday morning with you heavy on my mind –a burden from the Lord. While reading my Bible, first thing as I always do, God had me turn also to Isa. 44:21-23. Verse 22 especially jumped out at me. So I started my latest post with it, and after working on it off and on every day since Sunday, I finally finished it last night. Being you and I had corresponded, I’d also been praying throughout the day about how to respond to your long email. As I got into bed and prayed one last time about it, I heard, “Tell her, ‘Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.'” It was very, very clear.
This morning I prayed again and kept feeling it was the same answer, though it seemed the Lord was going to give me more to say to you as well. However, being He also suddenly compelled me to go witnessing downtown, I had to put off writing you back. Hence the short note this morning.
I appreciate you sharing with me the things you’ve shared in your emails this week and I am very grieved for you. After reading your email below after getting home from witnessing today, and then spending time in the Word, I went back and read some of the email you wrote to me in Dec. of ’09 where you shared about yourself, your childhood, and your turn to the Lord.
I need to tell you that during that couple of hours this afternoon in the Word, and asking the Lord for what to say to you, I heard way, way more than I expected. I asked for confirmation concerning things I’d heard from Him about you earlier this week, last week, and over the last two years, and the Lord responded today by booming them at me loudly through His Word. I was almost shaking, was having trouble breathing I was so upset, I had tears rolling down profusely, and I had to finally get up and walk around for a bit before I could continue.
I will tell you what I heard, but I do think it best if you not share our discussion with the friend who advised you to block me. I have never blocked anyone in my life, either at my blog, phone, or email, as I believe that is cowardly and immature. There are other ways to tell someone we don’t wish to correspond with them anymore. “Those who oppose us we are to gently instruct” (see 2 Tim. 2:25), not block them because they rebuke us using the Word of God.
It is God’s deep and faithful love that compels us to keep trying to woo people to Him and His Truth. Again when I say it to you from Him I get tears: “Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.”
