For several weeks now, I've shared with my Beloveds on Twitter that my time in conservative politics is coming to an end.
I have another assignment to complete, one that will take me to the churches.
For the longest time, I never knew why the Holy Spirit led me to the political space. There's absolutely nothing appealing about it; and this blood sport is brutal to those whose hearts genuinely care for the people.
I consider my "conservative political career" to be akin to the minor prophets mentioned in the Scriptures. Such individuals appeared at a pivotal point in history and nearly vanished into oblivion once the assignment was complete.
In my case -- and I can only speculate retrospectively -- my presence was simply to stir the current leaders once again to hold fast to the spiritual laws that govern our success. In other words, the prophetic anointing caused people to mobilize; and I can only assume that was my purpose within this conservative movement: to mobilize us into action.
Read any story from the Prophets, and you will discover a trend: YahWeh calls us before we were formed. He gives us a specific message to deliver. He anoints us for the task. We speak the prophetic Word of the Lord. The people hate the message and the messenger. The people devise ways to destroy the message by killing the messenger. The messenger's warnings go unheeded, yet they are confirmed over time. The people are destroyed or brought into captivity for disobeying the word AND killing the prophets. The messenger has no grace or desire to pray for the people, but the people's cries are strong before the Lord. So, the Lord anoints someone to be a deliverer. And eventually, the prophet's assignment is complete.
This happens like clockwork, because humans are quite predictable. (Study the book of Judges to see the pattern).
This, essentially, is what I've encountered over the last three years in conservative politics. YahWeh appointed this time for Believers to dominate politically. Believers prayed for His intervention. YahWeh answered by giving us an assuming vessel. The people began worshiping the servant as a god. YahWeh raised up prophetic voices to get the people's focus back on Him and His principles. The people rejected the prophets, slandered them, and sought to destroy their influence. The warnings went unheeded. Believers began to lose political influence. Eventually, they will cry out for a deliverer, but the prophets will reject them. And at some point, after Believers have experienced "captivity" for a while, YahWeh will raise a deliverer to help them.
That's essentially what Conservative Christians can expect to happen in the coming years, because despite having the open window, they have thrown their fist in God's face. It's for this reason I feel we do not deserve this incoming revival and national reformation. We do not deserve such an outpouring at this time, because we do not know how to handle such power.
And we will reap the consequences for our behavior.
Wisdom Cries Loudly, But No One Listens
When delivering messages to Twitter Beloveds, I rarely begin my teachings with, "Thus saith the Lord." But if Beloveds were to examine my content over the last three years, they would discover that every teaching was, in fact, prophetic. Each lesson gave Christian Conservatives a heads-up regarding our current state of affairs; and by observing each comment, Beloveds will see how antagonistic Christians were to these warnings.
What is it about truth that drives Christians insane? When we teach them how to win or how to evangelize the God-focused message, they vehemently resist the messages; and I have to ask myself why.
Is it truly easier to believe lies and deceit? Have we become so accustomed to disillusionment that when Truth stands in our face, we despise it?
I am reminded of a passage that speaks to this notion:
Out in the open wisdom calls aloud,
Beloved, how do you suppose Wisdom conveys her message to the people? Does she speak out of the sky? Does she write her words on stone in some magical way? Does Wisdom ring loudly from the mountains?
No, she speaks through her messengers, the prophets, the carriers of this Great News. She informs God's people on ways to prosper. But because the people reject the messenger, they also reject Wisdom's message. And at any moment's time, calamity will strike hard against the people. Such folks will scream for help, but Wisdom (and her messenger) will not be found.
What will the people do then?
Learning How to Receive God's Prophets and Their Rewards
I pride myself in being a master teacher. I've spent decades perfecting this craft. While I'm cognizant of my prophetic call, I use my teaching gift to help my Beloveds better understand spiritual matters so we do not make ludicrous mistakes repeatedly.
In all my years in ministry, I've found that most Christians repeat their folly simply because they do not know better. No one has taught them how to hear the Holy Spirit, how to know Him intimately, how to take their mistakes and find lessons in each one.
But in order for us to see greatness, we must be willing to do things God's way. We must learn to adjust our behavior so we stop traveling around this mountain year after year.
When we recognize the manner in which YahWeh speaks to us, and we learn to appreciate His methods, we'll find ourselves walking in prosperity. We will witness the greatest revival and national reformation this world has seen. But it won't happen if we repeat the same behavior that got us into our mess in the first place.
Beloved, you must understand there is a way to hear YahWeh's voice when you don't know how to hear Him yourself: It comes via His prophets. And you will know that a pure prophet is among you when the word he or she conveys comes to fruition (see Ezekiel 33:33).
For what cause does YahWeh have in raising up pure prophets during this hour but to get the people ready for what He wants to do?
You may question whether such spiritual principles apply today, but they do, Beloved. YahWeh is exactly the same as He was the day He created man. And when He wants to do something in the earth, He tells His pure prophets firstly ("Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets." - Amos 3:7 NIV). It stands to reason, then, that if YahWeh has this mode of communication, then we ought to listen, even when the message seems unfavorable to us.
There is a proper way to receive a prophet so that we obtain the prophet's reward.
If you receive a prophet as one who speaks for God, you will be given the same reward as a prophet. And if you receive righteous people because of their righteousness, you will be given a reward like theirs." (Matthew 10:41 NLT)
It does not matter if you dislike the prophet's appearance. It does not matter if you don't like the prophet's upbringing. Beloved, we do not have permission to tell YahWeh who He can and cannot speak through. Our instructions are simply to receive the one who speaks for God; and YahWeh has taught us how to discern the pure from the false prophets.
The promise is when we receive the prophet, we will be given the same reward as a prophet. In other words, the blessing that comes through a prophet's obedience to deliver the message, that is the same blessing you receive when you obey the message.
In one of my classes inside LiyahAmore University, I teach the women about a prophet's ability to bless and curse. I remember back when I was about 16 years old, my step mother (who is also my spiritual teacher) told me, "Felecia, be careful of the words you speak because they will come to pass. If you curse someone, they will be cursed." It was a sobering teaching, yet one I did not fully understand until 20 years later.
I began recognizing this factor within the prophetic office each time I told Christian Conservatives, "We deserve this beating we are about to get." Or when I said to Beloveds, "The Glass House (of conservative politics) is crashing down." Within days of releasing such words, Conservatives witnessed the manifestation; and I've had Beloveds come to me privately, apologizing for not believing the word spoken.
You see, when YahWeh gives us the message, prophets spend time inquiring Him about the good that will come from the word. We want to know how it will potentially benefit the people because no pure prophet wants to see folks in turmoil. And quite often, YahWeh gives us a glimpse of the blessing that will emerge IF the people obey the word.
On the flip side, He also shows us the calamity (the curse) that will arise if the people reject the word. Again, you can study the Prophets in the Old Testament to see how with every message they brought, that word contained an ounce of hope. (Take Jeremiah, for example.)
Therefore, when we bring a message to the people, we look to also release the blessing. But 75% of the time, the Word falls on bad soil (study Matthew 13). The people despise the message and the prophet. They seek to kill the person in hopes of diminishing the message's impact. As a result, the prophet has no desire to release the blessing or the reward. Such hostility ultimately pushes us to deliver the curse.
And for those of us who operate as pure prophets, YahWeh has vowed to never let our words fall to the ground ("The LORD was with Samuel as he grew up, and he let none of Samuel's words fall to the ground." - I Samuel 3:19 NIV) When it comes to understanding how YahWeh speaks and acts in the earth, the prophets are the ones who will release a blessing or a curse.
But it's the PEOPLE'S RESPONSE that will determine which "reward" they obtain; and all this is dependent on how they receive the prophet.
If you can understand this principle, and apply it accordingly and with Wisdom, you will never be destroyed.
My Time in Conservative Politics is Up. What Will the People Do When the Prophets No Longer Want to Help?
Since 2016, I have met amazing people during my career in conservative politics. I never would have imagined reaching the heights I did via social media; but I always knew my time in conservative politics would come to an end. Naturally, I set a date on that: 2024. And then that date moved up to November 2020. But the time for my departure is right now.
When I no longer sense the Holy Spirit urging me to deliver a specific message to the people, it means my time is up and I must move on to the next assignment. There comes a point when I must release what I worked towards building so another man (or woman) can add to the structure. When I resist the Holy Spirit's leading, chaos ensues; and I have no tolerance for chaos.
My task within conservative politics has been simple: to prepare the people for this great movement, to deliver the vision (of conscious black conservatism), and to allow the agents of change to do the work.
During my three-year career, I've had several people try to "hire me" to work on their political ambitions; but such "opportunities" resulted in demise because I've already been "hired." My voice and my presence do not belong to any man, any mission, or any agenda. I am God's mouthpiece. I have Heaven's agenda on my mind. My mission is His mission. I made a vow to Him. And whatever He did in stirring up fellow Christian Conservatives and authentic black voices to rise up, that was my assignment in conservative politics. Nothing more. Nothing less.
Please note, Beloved, that the backlash didn't push me out. Lies didn't diminish my impact. The Facebook and Twitter toddlers didn't move me. I've proven my ability to withstand the toughest battles in the public sphere, without wavering. I delivered enough content for Conservatives to win the fight. But now it's time to allow the next wave of change to come; and this wave does not include my presence.
What YahWeh Will Do Next within the Christian Conservative Camp
By now, if you don't believe anything I've said in this lesson, you won't believe what I will share in this next section. But if you are now a Believer, then this message is for you.
The movement God initiated three years ago within the Christian Conservative camp has the potential to remain and excel; but it will only come as a result of the people listening to the voices who truly love them. You can expect to see more (authentic) black conservative men taking the lead. You will see more leaders embracing the ideals of doing things God's way. You will see more voices rise who have a clear message that will demonstrate how spiritual, conservative values empower the people to prosper. As a result, the tide will shift in favor of those who function according to such principles.
Among Believers who understand spiritual warfare, this will be a time to intercede for leaders in these positions. While "Esther" has come to the forefront, garnering favor for her people, you will see a surge of "Mordecai-s" in governing positions who will not compromise on the values. It will happen; and when it does, the people are to remember that it was the Lord who caused them to prosper.
The SECOND they forget the Lord and exalt man in His place, YahWeh will smash every idol and cause the people to return to captivity. The movement will die, and YahWeh will not give the leaders a second chance at public redemption.
I won't be the prophet to speak during this time, but Beloveds will have many more who will deliver Heaven's message.
Listen to them.
Assess their word.
See if their message comes to fruition.
And obey the instructions.
Then you will win.
A New Assignment Calls
The question then arises, "What will you do next, Felecia?" And the answer is, "I have an assignment that calls me directly to the Church; and I have instructions to submit myself to my future husband." At such time, "Felecia Killings" will be no more. She finished her race and fought to the end. A new woman will emerge who will be fully committed to her new husband, their children, his ministry, and her passion for empowering Christian Authors.
The Holy Spirit -- now that He's equipped many Believers to engage in the culture and politics -- is ready to equip the Body of Christ for the influx of new Believers. Many Christian churches pretend they want thousands of souls added to the Kingdom; but they want these people to have squeaky-clean stories. Yet, that's not who will flood our churches.
So, I am tasked with this new mission to teach God's people "how to play chess" by preparing them for this end-time revival and national reformation. If we do not get ourselves ready, we will break so many people who have a genuine hunger and thirst for YahWeh.
This is my new assignment, one I assumed I'd enter after Election 2020. But as I've come to learn, my timing has nothing to do with God's timing. I'm on His clock. I go where He says go. I say what He says to say.
You can still expect to see snippets of my teachings on Twitter Class occasionally; but the bulk of my work will be done among small churches. They are the ones that will receive this great influx of new Believers. They are the ones who've been crying out for God to send the revival. In addition, my mission to empower Christian Authors remains steadfast. We need the written word for our survival; and I will continue to teach them how to build a business or ministry around their authorship.
So, while you won't hear much from me regarding conservative politics (publicly), I will play somewhat a role behind the scenes, working (here and there) with rising leaders to help them spread the conscious black conservative movement. Again, I was never the one called to lead it, just simply the messenger and visionary; but those who will move forward with it know how to take it higher. They will lead the events, the workshops, the forums, the rallies, and everything else that's in their hearts. They have the assignments, and they will not disappoint.
Beloveds, I solicit your prayers as I take this next step; and I look forward to working with some of you who are called to be ministers and leaders during this great end-time revival and national reformation.
And as always, let's grow together!
