1965 VISION OF COMING DECEPTION

by Stanley Frodsham.

The following is an excerpt from a prophecy given at the Elim Bible Institute Summer Camp Meeting in 1965 by the late Stanley Frodsham. Brother Frodsham was a recognized prophet and teacher in the Body of Christ whose life and ministry spanned the Pentecostal Revival, the great Healing Revival and the early days of the Charismatic Movement. He also authored the well-known book, "Smith Wigglesworth: Apostle of Faith".



"When I visit My people in mighty revival power, it is to prepare
them for the darkness ahead. With the glory shall come great darkness,
for the glory is to prepare My people for the darkness. I will enable
My people to go through because of the visitation of My Spirit. Take 
heed to yourselves lest you be puffed up and think that you have
arrived. Many shall be puffed up as in the olden days, for many then
received My message but they continued not in it. Did I not anoint Jehu?
Yet the things I desired were not accomplished in his life. Listen to 
the messengers, but do not hold men's persons in admiration. For many
whom I shall anoint mightily, with signs and miracles, shall be lifted
up and shall fall away by the wayside. I do not do this willingly;
I have made provision that they might stand. I call many into this min-
istry and equip them; but remember that many shall fall. They shall be 
like bright lights and people shall delight in them. But they shall be 
taken over by deceiving spirits and shall lead many of My people away.

"Hearken diligently concerning these things, for in the last days will
come seducing spirits that shall turn many of My anointed ones away.
Many shall fall through various lusts and because of sin abounding.
But if you will seek Me diligently, I will put My Spirit within you.
When one shall turn to the right hand or to the left you shall not turn
with them, but keep your eyes wholly on the Lord. The coming days are
most dangerous, difficult and dark, but there shall be a mighty 
outpouring of My Spirit upon many cities. My people must be diligently
warned concerning the days that are ahead. Many shall turn after
seducing spirits; many are already seducing My people. It is those 
who do righteousness that are righteous. Many cover their sins by 
theological words. But I warn you of seducing spirits who instruct
My people in a evil way.

"Many shall come with seducing spirits and hold out lustful enticements.
You will find that after I have visited My people again, the way shall
become more and more narrow, and fewer shall walk therein. But be not
deceived, the ways of righteousness are My ways. For though Satan comes
as an angel of light, hearken not to him; for those who perform miracles
and speak not righteousness are not of Me. I warn you with great in-
tensity that I am going to judge My house and have a church without spot 
or wrinkle when I come. I desire to open your eyes and give you spir-
itual understanding, that you may not be deceived but may walk in 
uprightness of heart before Me, loving righteousness and hating every
evil way. Look unto Me, and I will make you to perceive with eyes of
the Spirit the things that lurk in darkness that are not visible to the
human eye. Let me lead you in this way that you may perceive the powers 
of darkness and battle against them. It is not a battle against flesh 
and blood; for if you battle in that way, you accomplish nothing. But 
if you let Me take over and battle against the powers of darkness, than 
they are defeated, and then liberation is brought to My people.

"I warn you to search the Scriptures diligently concerning these last
days. For the things that are written shall indeed be made manifest.
There shall come deceivers among My people in increasing numbers who 
shall speak for the truth and shall gain the favor of the people.
For the people shall examine the Scriptures and say, 'What these men
say is true'. Then when they have gained the hearts of the people, then
and only then shall Satan enter into My people. Watch for seducers.
Do you think a seducer will brandish a new heresy and flaunt it before
the people? He will speak the words of righteousness and truth, and 
will appear as a minister of light declaring the Word. The people's 
hearts shall be won. Then, when the hearts are won, they will bring out 
their doctrines, and the people shall be deceived. The people shall say,
'Did he not speak thus and thus? And did we not examine it from the 
Word? Therefore he is a minister of righteousness. This that he has 
spoken we do not see in the Word, but it must be right, for the other 
things he spoke were true.'

"Be not deceived. For the deceiver will first work to gain the hearts
of many, and then shall bring forth his insidious doctrines. You cannot
discern those that are of Me and those that are not of Me when they 
start to preach. But seek Me constantly, and then when these doctrines 
are brought out you shall have a witness in your heart that these are 
not of Me. Fear not, for I have warned you. Many will be deceived. But 
if you walk in holiness and uprightness before the Lord, your eyes 
shall be open and the Lord will protect you. If you will constantly 
look unto the Lord, you will know when the doctrine changes and will 
not be brought into it. If your heart is right I will keep you; and if 
you will constantly look to Me, I will uphold you.

"The minister of righteousness shall be on this wise: his life shall
agree with the Word and his lips shall give forth that which is wholly
true, and it will be no mixture. When the mixture appears, then you 
will know he is not a minister of righteousness. The deceivers speak 
first the truth then error, to cover their own sins which they love.
Therefore, I exhort and command you to study the Scriptures relative 
to seducing spirits, for this is one of the great dangers of these 
last days.

"I desire you to firmly be established in My Word and not in the per-
sonalities of men that you will not be moved as so many shall be moved.
Take heed to yourselves and follow not the seducing spirits that are
already manifesting themselves. Diligently inquire of Me when you hear
something that you have not seen in My Word, and do not hold people's
persons in admiration--for it is by this very method Satan will destroy
many of My people."
