Monique Swaby: The Vault

There is an area of deception which Zedekiah List has barely touched. It is that of informal prophecy on YouTube and and other devices. The format is simple. The "prophet" gives words purportedly from the Lord and the viewer is requested to support that ministry with money. A further area of raising money is to offer personal words to people, again purportedly from the Lord. One name for this is Simony. It is akin to fortune-telling. Is it possible that these words are from the Lord? Let's examine them and see.

Monique Swaby on her video dated 21st January 2020, which can be found here states: I heard the Lord by an Angel say: "Open the vault", for he is saying to the faithful ones that this is not for everyone, this not for those who are still in process. This is not for folk who are all in process but those who have gone through the fire, those who have gone through the transition those who are established...

Are there vaults in heaven? Actually, there are. Scripture says Have I not kept this in reserve and sealed it in my vaults? Deuteronomy 32:34. So Monique is right in this matter. However, can we open those vaults and receive blessings from them? The answer lies in the next verse which tells us: It is mine to avenge; I will repay. In due time their foot will slip; their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them. This is not a vault of blessing or advancement but the store of God's vengeance which will be poured out on those who are unbelieving. The consequence is that Monique is misleading people with her so-called words from the Lord.

One of the Ten Commandments states You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor. Exodus 20:16. Should we give false testimony against God? If we state that there is something in heaven which is not there that is to bear false witness.

But who are these people to whom she is offering a word from the Lord?This is not for folk who are all in process but those who have gone through the fire, those who have gone through the transition those who are established. Are these people who are born again as Jesus himself says: "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God." John 3:3. There is an important difference between what Monique says and what the Bible says. When you are saved there is no process or fire to go through. So are these folks getting the right message or a message of salvation at all?

God's salvation plan is clearly laid out in the Bible. Jesus, the Son of God came to earth with a specific purpose. He died on a wooden cross and his last words were "It is finished". We are all sinners. We all break God's laws probably more often than one might realise. We lie. We lust for things which we have not got and which someone else has got. We swear. We grumble against God and much more. We are all in need of the Saviour and when one both confesses their sins and forsake their sins they are born again. Jesus becomes the Lord and Master of our lives and we look forward to a life with him in Heaven. But, hey, that is the new beginning, the only new beginning. How do we forsake our sins? By nailing them to his cross. Paul wrote: God made him who knew no sin to become sin for us. 2Cor 5:21.

Why waste money buying blessings and promises when you could have them for free, by simply sitting down with a Bible and reading it.
