Dear Brother Swaggart,
Grace and peace, mercy and Truth be multiplied to you exponentially in these end times. Brother Jimmy, I am Rev. Daniel K. Hathorn of Redemption Ground Bible Church and I am writing to you in response to a Word from The Lord while praying for you on the 25th of March. The Holy Spirit is prompting me to write to you concerning The Word He gave me. My prayer is that you would receive it meekly and humbly and not throw it out the window before taking it to The Lord in prayer to have Him search your heart with “it”- “The Word,” Jas. 1:19-21; Jer. 17:9. Please pray to restrain the reaction of the flesh to throw out a Word of Chastening and thus allow the flesh to throw out Life Himself, Pvb. 1:25, 30; 5:12; 10:17; 12:1; 15:10, 12; 29:1, 15. We are to submit ourselves one to another (that is The Word, in one another, Who is The Head of The Church, and not the flesh in one another). If you are a child of God and this is a word from flesh, The Holy Spirit will reveal that to you from your heart, not from a reaction of the flesh. The Lord chastens His sons that He loves, Heb. 12:5-6. He chastens us so that we can have faith for repentance and not be judged with the world, 1 Cor. 11:32; 1 Pet. 14:7. Repentance is a gift of God and all gifts of God must be received by faith, (“The Faith”), 2 Tim. 2:25; Rev. 2:21; Rom. 10:17. And we can’t receive faith for repentance until we hear a Word of chastening, (reproof). David, a man after God’s own heart, prayed for reproof (chastisement) and he taught his son, Solomon, the importance of this, and to do the same, Psa. 141:5; Pvb.1:23; 6:23; 13:8; 15:5, 31, 32; 17:10; 19:25; 25:12, 15; (Isa. 11:1-5).
My Beloved Brother Jimmy, please observe the above references and keep them in mind as you hear The Word The Lord has given me for you, that you might receive “Him” with gladness and not be offended in The Truth, Matt. 11:6. I was at the Camp meeting on the 24th of March at the 7:00 PM service. In that meeting while Brother Loren and Brother Donnie were taking up the offering, it was said that there was a “spirit of giving” present. Please see The Word given to Brother Loren (see letter) and the “spirit” word search enclosed concerning this subject. There is no such thing as a “spirit of giving.” Brother Loren also mentioned a “spirit of Jezebel.” Again, there is no such “spirit” in The Scriptures. A little, little, little, little, little leaven leavens the whole lump. This lump happens to be The Bride of Christ and He does not take kindly to those who would spot Her garment with flesh, or wrinkle Her garment with error especially so near to the wedding feast. Brother Swaggart, I am a minister of The Gospel and I make mistakes (a lot of them), and I am very appreciative when someone catches my mistakes so that I don’t get off track from The Word of God. God judges us by the intent of our hearts in reference to His Word. No man can know the intent of our hearts in regard to mishandling God’s Word, but regardless of the “perceived” “good intent” of our hearts in ignorantly mishandling God’s Word, if we err from The Word and that mistake continues uncorrected it will cause great difficulties for the child of God, up to and including the loss of life and eternal damnation. And if that child of God is a minister of The Gospel, there can be extremely dire and catastrophic consequences for hurting the sheep of The Lord’s Pasture in addition to the great difficulties from erring from The Word: especially when He sends His Word to correct and that Word is cast aside as dung, because the delivery vessel is judged and not The Word, which the vessel delivers; or the flesh is not kept under, (1 Cor. 9:27), and is allowed to rise up and cast The Word out through a knee-jerk flesh reaction, before it is able to be judged, Jas. 1:19-21. I beg of you for your own sake and for those to whom you minister to, to give this Word (and any Word) due diligence in quiet time with The Lord and Scripture study before you cast it out, Acts 17:10-12, 1 Cor. 11:29. If it is from The Lord and you cast “it” out, you will be casting out “The King of Glory,” and the “gift of repentance” that The Word of chastisement gives faith to receive. Please hear The Word of The Lord spoken to me for you, that you may receive “The Faith” to repent; otherwise your prayers and your search for repentance later when “you” want to repent will be an effort of flesh and will be in vain, Heb. 12:17. The Lord can and will use whomever He pleases to use, whenever and wherever He pleases to use them, even the simple and the children so that no flesh will be glorified and no man lifted up, Pvb. 1:32; Jer. 49:20; 1 Cor. 1:26-29. The Father is not willing that we should learn from the school of hard knocks so He sends us chastisement to correct our pathway before the hard knocks come. Please hear me out; hard knocks are just ahead if you do not REPENT.
My dear Beloved Brother, The Word of The Lord came to me on the 25th of March while in prayer for you and the ministry and He instructs me to tell you that your sons which He has given you in the ministry of helps are polluting His Holy offering and you are saying nothing to them to correct them, (Please refer to the enclosed Word’s given directly to each of them, Donnie and Loren and to the enclosed tape messages: 1-6 on giving, and the warning to fallen 5-fold). Brother Swaggart, when it comes to taking up offerings, the ends do not justify the means. Also during that offering the enemy was trying to put the cloak of the Apostle on you through Brother Loren’s leading (by demon spirits), and you did not say or do anything about it. Paul and Barnabas tore this cloak off of them in Acts 14:14; and here you are accepting it and miracles are not even being worked. The Lord would say to you why have you not torn this cloak off? God only knows what kind of perversions would be worked, if miracles were being performed. Brother Swaggart, I submit to you that the offering taken up on the 24th of March was not a HOLY offering for The Gospel of The Kingdom, nor was it “for” The King of Glory; but instead it was an offering taken up for “a man” with no spiritual discernment lifted up in the flesh, (i.e. his eyes put out and the devil behind that man receiving the offering); and it was taken up by a priest of Zeus and Hermes, (blinded Brother Loren and blinded Brother Donnie), Acts 14:11-13. You can stone Me for suggesting such, if you want to; it will not be the first time I AM, (Gal. 2:20), has been spoken of with words as harsh as stones and cast out, nor will it be the first time He has been supposed dead by His adversaries, Matt. 21:35; 23:37; Mk. 12:4; Lk. 13:34; Jn. 8:59; 10:31-33; 11:8; Acts 5:27; 7:58-60; 14:5, 19; 2 Cor. 11:25; Heb. 11:37; Matt. 28:1-6; Mk. 16:1-7; Lk. 24:1-9; Jn. 11:25; 20:1-10; Acts 14:19-20; 1 Cor. 15:12-19.
The Lord instructs me to tell you, Brother Jimmy, that He has given you the platform and the open door of utterance at JSM, FWC, TV, Son Life Radio, etc. and you are responsible and held accountable for what they say and do there, Heb. 13:17. The Lord tells me that He has taken of The Spirit which is upon you for the office work He has given you, and He has placed it upon Donnie and Loren (and others there at the ministry); and He has set them in the ministry of helps to the duties of the office He has given you, but you are still responsible for what goes forth from the platform He has given you. The Word of The Lord came to me once before with a chastisement concerning Brother Donnie. However, The Lord instructed me to give The Word to you as if it was directed to you and not to Brother Donnie. I did not understand that at the time, but I obeyed. (I will tell you how you can recall the incident. I asked for your autograph on a picture of Jesus). It was very apparent that you did not understand it at the time either, (probably because you knew you had not done any of the things indicated in The Word). Neither did you receive The Word with humility and meekness which I was delivering, but instead allowed the flesh to rise up in a knee-jerk reaction to rebuke “The Word” as if He was satan, himself. Dear Brother, I would venture to say that your financial woes are partly, if not entirely, due to your not discerning The Body, in Whom The Word also abides, 1 Cor. 11:29. My Beloved Brother, it is only now that I understand why that first Word was directed to you and not directly to Brother Donnie. It is the office of “Evangelist” The Lord has given you and The Spirit upon you for that office has been placed on Brother Donnie and Brother Loren. Now the enemy is trying to reverse that spiritual principle of transfer by putting an evil spirit upon Brother Donnie and Brother Loren and transfer it to you through the office in order to destroy the office. Brother Jimmy, God has planned the total and absolute annihilation of America, and it will soon begin, (please see prophecy for America in The Word to Brother Donnie). I don’t know if you have felt the urgency like I have in my spirit, but there is no more FUTURE for America. You can rebuke this Word as if He was satan again, if you desire; and cast Him out of “your” church again if you want to, but you will do so at your eternal peril my friend; and the untold millions that will be lost in the tidal waves, volcano and nuclear holocaust, etc. will be upon your head. Satan is not playing games; do not underestimate him; he is going for the jugular with the spirit of slumber and the spirit of deep sleep to put out your [spiritual] eyes and have you grinding in his mill, of apostasy with the rest of the captives - all the while preaching “the message of the cross,” (but not living it), Jud. 16:20-21; Phil. 1:15-18. He has already effectively eliminated the Apostle and Prophet from The Church at large. Next on the list is Evangelist, Eph. 4:11. Let him that thinks he stands take heed [of chastisement] lest he fall, 1 Cor. 10:12. I am just a messenger, and you have no idea or comprehension of what I have endured and pressed through just for the “privilege” to be used to present this message to you. You can shoot this piano player if you want, as many have done down through the ages, but the song will go on, Isa. 40:8; and I will still have my reward, because I did the only thing that I could do: trust and obey. I pray that you will learn this through this Word and not have to go to hard knock university again – there is no time left and millions upon millions of souls are at stake.
Brother Swaggart, we become Servants of Jesus Christ with the promise of pain and suffering not well financed ministries that never lack. Observe the enclosed photo from a fellow “Evangelist” Servant in Somalia. You may have seen the picture, but not heard the story behind it. This Evangelist has never “taken up” an offering from the people, because he is an offering to the people. Some Muslims tried to pay him to stop preaching, (they feared him because of the anointing of God upon him). He refused. Then other more devout (i.e. more demonic) Muslims heard of the other Muslims offering him money to stop preaching and they were outraged. They gathered up their forces (demonic), severely beat and chastised those that offered him money to stop preaching, and then they came to the Evangelist and demanded that he stop preaching the gospel and demanded that he pay them a tribute to Allah. He refused again, so they cut off his feet. As soon as his wounds healed he crawled on his hands and knees for miles to go and preach “The Gospel of The Kingdom” to the surrounding villages. One day someone heard the message and got saved and gave him his donkey. The donkey was all the man had and the only means of his livelihood. That man was a Muslim. This is a picture taken of a HOLY offering given from a willing heart after having heard “The Gospel of The Kingdom” empowered by The Holy Ghost. Please note that he has clothes and obviously has been eating (he is alive), 1 Tim. 6:8. Count the cost Brother Jimmy, before you continue on following Christ as this “Evangelist” is following Christ, it may soon come to this in America, where we have become FAT, LAZY, and SLOTHFUL in spiritual things by comparison? Woe (eternal damnation) is unto us if we preach not this gospel, 1 Cor. 9:16. What does money have to do with anything? Jesus Christ did not come to take up offerings. HE IS THE OFFERING! This is why there is a spiritual death penalty on those that would pervert THE HOLY OFFERING, 1 Sam. 2:16-17, 22-25; 3:11-14. Jesus came to teach and to preach The Gospel of The Kingdom, Mk. 1:14-15, 38; Matt. 4:23; 9:35; 11:2-6; 24:14; Lk. 4:18-19; 7:20-23; 9:1-6; telling the people that they have to lose all of “their” lives’ (self-will, self-desire, desire for recognition, status and position: Matt. 10:39; 16:25; Mk. 8:35; Lk. 9:24; 17:33; Jn. 12:25), in order to find Eternal Life “hidden” IN The Resurrected Christ. REPENT! And seek ye first The Kingdom of God IN The Resurrected Christ and His Righteousness day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute, and second by second – and THEN all Eternity will be added. The little foxes (minute by minute, second by second) spoil the vine, SOS. 2:15. There is a power greater than the power of God to save through the cross, and that power is in man’s choice not to accept The Holy Sacrificial Offering of Christ Himself on the cross. And that power to resist God’s saving Grace is strengthened by (willingly?) ignorant men who sin “very greatly before The Lord” (even in churches preaching the cross) by defiling the offering, which causes men to abhor The Holy Offering given to them on the cross, 1 Sam. 2:17; 1 Pet. 4:17. Preach The Gospel of The Kingdom Brother Jimmy; Preach! You are on the right track; don’t be lured off by needs. God knows of your every need and commands you not to even think on them, Matt. 6:34.
Brother Jimmy, I did not realize until after The Word of The Lord came to me in prayer for you on the 25th of March that the prophecy that Brother Lester brought forth while in song was not for the church at large, but indeed for Family Worship Center and Jimmy Swaggart Ministries. The Word of The Lord that came to me has instructed me to direct your attention to that prophecy that might have gone unnoticed by you, thinking it was for others. He brought forth Mal. 2:11: “Judah has dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah has profaned the holy institution of The Lord which He loved, and has married the daughter of a strange god.” Judah had intermarried with the enemy. That Holy Institution is the institution of the offering (giving). And the marriage to the daughter of a strange god is the stooping to the taking up of offerings like the apostate church takes up offerings. The ministers of the apostate church do not want what God has to offer anymore (Eternal Life through death). All they want is what the people have to offer – money, idols, (regardless of how polluted the hearts are that it issues forth from). Please listen to the 6 messages on giving on the enclosed tapes.
Brother Swaggart, after I got saved (age 32), one day I noticed one of my acquaintances displaying a picture of a sports great with his autograph. He mentioned that this guy was his hero. It was then that I got the idea to get preachers’ autographs, because they were my heroes of faith, Heb. 11. Brother Swaggart, one by one I watched every one of the preachers that signed that picture you signed fall to apostasy. You are the only one left and I fear greatly for you, even while you take your stand in the proper gospel. I can’t help but to wonder if it was not me that ignorantly set this thing all in motion with my foolishness in thinking there were any heroes except Christ and Him crucified; and God making them fall just to prove to me that there are no heroes in the flesh. I felt like David, who did very foolishly and “sinned greatly” in numbering the people, 2 Sam. 24:10. If I have caused any of this, I ask for your forgiveness; but regardless of who did what, the answer for all of us is the same and is found in 2 Sam. 24:14: let us fall now into the hand of The LORD; for His Mercies are Great: and let us not fall into the hand of man. Praise ye The LORD! Let us REPENT and return to our first LOVE.
In the service of The Master,
Love in Christ,
