Why go around boasting about how much you have fasted and prayed? You shouldn't…in doing so you have received your reward from man…keep it in secret and you will receive your reward from God. We've heard it said to us "follow this person because he/she fasts much and surely they hear the voice of God!" …. Not so…… Don't be deceived Children of God! These are the end times ….watch out for deceiving spirits looking for their following and approval of man. Be aware of ministries that boast of fastings, revelations and visitations from angels giving them new doctrine of revelation on Christianity.
*[[Mat 6:6]] KJ2000* But you, when you pray, enter into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret shall reward you openly.
*[[Mat 6:17-18]] KJ2000* v 17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head, and wash your face; v 18 That you appear not unto men to fast, but unto your Father who is in secret: and your Father, who sees in secret, shall reward you openly.
*[[Gal 1:8-11]] KJ2000* v 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. v 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that you have received, let him be accursed. v 10 For do I now seek the favor of men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. v 11 But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man.
