Francois came to faith in 1980 during his classical music studies. It was a time of revival in South Africa During a Bonke crusade he received the infilling of the Holy Spirit. He then served 8 years in a local church in the worship ministry and youth work.
In 1988 he travelled to the USA with the late Kim Clement .He there received the invitation to join another ministry . This was a mistake at the time ...and the below word spoken by Kim at the time , reflects this.
So it really was a birthing in fire...but God is true to His word and even though the enemy tried to lie and destroy , God saw to it that Francois was released into the ministry he functions in today.
Francois saw the danger of false prophets , what makes them false and the abuse and then false accusations that surrounds such ministers .
Interesting that the Bible calls false prophets " Ravening Wolves "
It is true that true Prophets will sometimes knowingly or unknowingly expose fasle ministers and people. This causes the Prophet to be hated, or rejected but it's part of the prophetic call....take Jeremiah as an example...He rooted out, pulled down, detroyed, threw down and also built and planted.
It is not true that new testament Prophets will only build and plant.
Francois unfortunately had to experience the loss of relationships with some churches and minisiters because they started preaching error and false teachings , and in spite of many discussions they refused to correct the errors. Examples were Churches and friends supporting and preaching the Extreme Grace teachings that have flooded the church worldwide...where Christians are lied to that they never need to ask God for forgiveness again , that future sins are automatically forgiven.
Alarming is the current new age mixture that is infiltrating the church...where spiritual experiences are more desired than the God of the Scripture, and not being discerned if it is actually of God or not.....experiences being celebrated , not being checked against the written scriptures.
Using practises such as vibrations ,tuning forks, waking up of "sleeping Angels " etc. that the new age and the occult uses , is clearly a "spiritual " mixture flooding the church at the moment.
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves you shall know them by their fruits
We all just simply need the grace and mercy of Christ to keep us close to Him . Do not be impressed by the Ministry gift , Prophetic gift etc. The Bible is clear that the lifestyle of a Prophet makes him/her true or false not the gifting. It is totally possible to live in a sinful lifestyle and yet minister .
Most false Prophets will accuse their victims as the cause of their downfall , when the victim exposes them, or tells the truth about them.
They all leave a string of Victims behind them , a history of not just one , but many who they will give the guilt to for their fallen immoral lifestyle and before you know it another Victim emerges who was the "guilty " party.
So the cycle continues , sometimes life long.
Saul remained on the throne for 20 years after Samuel told him that God had removed him...but without anointing . The presence of God was no longer evident in his life or ministry.....yet he was King.....
