Llamado y Advertencia a Todos los que han Estado Predicando Sobre un Gran Desastre, Terremoto y Marremoto Sobre Puerto Rico

************************************

Los lideres de la Iglesia Pentecostal en Puerto Rico descartaron el mensaje profetico sobre el terremoto-marremoto que habra de afectar a Puerto Rico.  Dios los descarto a ellos como lideres. Tan sencillo como todo eso.

Ahora les toca el turno a las muchas personas que han tenido sueños y visiones profeticas, y a los muchos predicadores y pastores que han estado predicando sobre este tema enPuerto Rico por los ultimos 40 años.  

ES TIEMPO DE QUE SE REUNAN Y COMPARTAN SUS SUEÑOS, SUS VISIONES, sus interpretaciones y sus experiencias. La profecia no le pertenece a nadie.  NADIE es el gran profeta, el ungido de Dios, el escogido. TODOS SOMOS HERMANOS en Cristo, a un mismo nivel. y debemos reunirnos con humildad para que Dios nos de un entendimiento mas grande y preciso sobre el evento sobre el cual nos ha estado dando tantos sueños y visiones.

Si lo hacemos El Espiritu Santo nos dara ese entendimiento... 



************************************


 La profecia de un terremoto-marremoto de gran intensidad que afectara a Puerto Rico ha estado presente por muchos años.  Los detalles especificos que Efrain dice haber recibido de Dios mediante sueños visiones y algun otro  tipo de comuniciacion divina, que Efrain nunca ha especificado, es que este terremoto-marremoto seria causado por una roca espacial que caeria al mar entre el pueblo de Mayaguez, PR,  y la isla de Amona al oeste de Puerto Rico a eso de las dos de la madrugada, hora local.  Este mensaje Efrain lo ha estado predicando desde el 2010.  

En la primavera del 2014 Efrain emitio un jucio o declaracion de muerte sobre el Evangelista Jorge Raschke por haberse opuesto publicamente al mensaje profetico.  Segun lo dicho por Efrain, Jorge Raschke no llegaria al evento del Dia de Clamor a Dios que se celebra el primer Lunes de Septiembre en Puerto Rico.

En ese mismo tiempo Efrain tambien dijo que el evento del Meteorito ocurriria en ese año del 2014, antes de terminar ese año. Es decir que el evento ocurriria en el 2014, a mas tardar el 31 de Diciembre. Antes de ese evento ocurriria un terremoto de 7.0 grados, como señal final de que el evento del meteorito era inminente.

Ningua de estas cosas ocurrio.  Asi que podemos concluir que Efrain, o se invento esto del juicio sobre Raschke y la fecha del 31 de Diciembre; o esas fechas  las recibio de Dios pero malinterpreto la naturaleza del juicio divino sobre Raschke y el significado de la fecha limite del 31 de Diciembre del 2014.

A pesar de esto la profecia del terremoto-marremoto sigue vigente pues esa profecia no le pertenece a Efrain, e inclusive la parte de meteorito sigue vigente pues esa fue parte de una profecia que Efrain  hizo publica ace mas de 4 años. Lo que se demostro que esta errado es lo que dijo o añadio en el 2014... cuando menos su interpretacion de las fechas limites que dio entonces.

Por otras razones independientes de la predica de Efrain, considero que esas fechas si eran validas, pero Efrain las malinterpreto. El evangelista Jorge Raschke comenzo su ministerio apelando al pueblo pentecostal fundamentalista, alla para los años 60 y 70. En aquel entonces se promovia como ¨el hombre de Dios para nuestros tiempos¨ lo que equivale a reclamar el ministerio profetico y presentarse como un profeta de Dios, a la usanza del Antiguo Testamento.

En esa funcion Raschke llego a hablar y predicar sobre el gran terremoto-marremoto que afectaria a Puerto Rico, alegando haber recibido visiones sobre el mismo.... pero el tiempo pasa y Jorge ha ido variando su mensaje, ahora apela a un publico mucho mas amplio y ha dejado atras el mensaje profetico sobre el terremoto-marremoto. 

Creo que ese evento habra de ocurrir, aunque mi perspectiva es distinta a la de Raschke y Efrain. Creo que el pasado primer lunes de Septiembre fue la ultima oportunidad que Dios le dio a Raschke para que retomara el ministerio profetico, hablando y predicando sobre el gran evento de terremoto y marremoto que marcara el inicio de grandes cambios geologicos en el mundo.  Raschke rechazo esa oferta de Dios y con esta accion se descarto a si mismo como profeta de Dios. Las consecuencias que esta decision habran de tener sobre su vida y ministerio son su responsabilidad. Oro a Dios que ni su salvacion ni la de sus seres amados, sea afectada en el proceso. Que un dia pueda presentarse ante Dios para recibir su recompensa por los muchos años que le dedico al ministerio. Pero cuando usted rechaza una oferta divina... usted se separa de la perfecta voluntad divina y eso tiene consecuencias.

Una oferta u oportunidad similar Dios le dio a la Confraternidad Pentecostal, la mas grande organizacion pentecostal en Puerto Rico, que reunie representantes de todos los concilios y organizaciones de orientacion pentecostal en Puerto Rico.  Los pentecostales creen(mos) que Dios habla mediante sueños y visiones dadas a unos y otros cristianos. Pero tambien creemos que ningua profecia es de interpretacion individual. El don de profecia es un don que Dios reparte a la Iglesia, ese mismo espiritu divino da a unos sueños, a otros visiones, a otros lenguas, a otros interpretacion de lenguas... y a otros la sabiduria para interpretar esos sueños, esas lenguas, esas visiones.

La labor profetica, por tanto, no es patrimonio de una persona en particular, sino una labor conjunta de la Iglesia.

Por los ultimos 50 años, cuando menos, dentro de la Iglesia Pentecostal en Puerto Rico son muchas las personas que han tenido multiples sueños y visiones sobre un gran cataclismo que incluye un gran terremoto y un gran marremoto.  Distintas personas han tenido visiones y sueños sobre este evento, cada cual desde un punto de vista distinto y resaltando aspectos distintos de este evento.

Ante esta realidad era la responsabilidad de los pastores, los lideres conciliares, y el liderato de la Iglesia Pentecostal en Puerto Rico, incluyendo a la Confraternidad Pentecostal, el tomar cartas en el asunto, convocar retiros y reuniones con todas las personas y predicadores que han estado compartiendo estos sueños y visiones.... reunirlos a todos y buscar la guianza del Espiritu Santo para que les diera un entendimiento claro y profundo sobre este tema. ESE ERA SU DEBER.

Pero se negaron a cumplir con el mismo. Creo firmemente que Diciembre 31, 2014 fue la fecha limite que Dios le dio al liderato de la Iglesia Pentecostal,  para que asumieran su responsabilidad. Tristemente, desde el pasado Dia de Clamor, el primer lunes de septiembre del 2014, ya el liderato conciliar en Puerto Rico habia tomado su decision final: Descartar el mensaje, los sueños y las visiones sobre un gran cataclismo que afectaria a Puerto Rico, y seguir apoyando el mensaje politico-religioso copiado de los conservadores estadounidenses, que Raschke a estado predicando por los ultimos años.

Ellos descartaron el mensaje profetico.  Dios los descarto a ellos como lideres. Tan sencillo como todo eso.

Ahora les toca el turno a las muchas personas que han tenido sueños y visiones profeticas, y a los muchos predicadores y pastores que han estado predicando sobre este tema enPuerto Rico por los ultimos 40 años.  

ES TIEMPO DE QUE SE REUNAN Y COMPARTAN SUS SUEÑOS, SUS VISIONES, sus interpretaciones y sus experiencias. La profecia no le pertenece a nadie.  NADIE es el gran profeta, el ungido de Dios, el escogido. TODOS SOMOS HERMANOS en Cristo, a un mismo nivel. y debemos reunirnos con humildad para que Dios nos de un entendimiento mas grande y preciso sobre el evento sobre el cual nos ha estado dando tantos sueños y visiones.

Si lo hacemos El Espiritu Santo nos dara ese entendimiento... 

Pero si insistimos en mantenernos separados, cada cual reclamando la supremacia sobre el mensaje... descartando y menospreciando a los demas... nosotros seremos descartados y en su dia, quiza antes, quiza despues del gran evento del ¨Meteorito¨ terremoto y Tsunami,... Dios levantara un nuevo liderato que sin titulos ni arrogancia, con amor, humildad y solidaridad se pondra en las manos de Dios... tal y como Dios siempre ha querido que hagamos....

Aun estamos a tiempo para dejar atras la arrogancia profetica, reunirnos y someternos en paz y armonia a la guianza del Espiritu de Dios... todavia estamos a tiempo, pero el tiempo que nos queda no es mucho....

Please, Pray for Efrain, and Raschke Too!

PLEASE. Pray for Efrain, that God will give him strength to overcome this moment. And to seek refuge in God, in humility, in prayer, In fasting; that God may disclose to him any hidden sin or imperfection in his Christian life, or ministry, and that under the guidance of the Holy Spirit those flaws will be corrected.

Please postponed judgment on him. There are things that need to be worked out. In real life things are not as simple and straightforward as the Books on Systematic Theology, back in the seminary would suggest. Raschke has a family. A younger woman who loves him dearly, a beautiful son about 6 years old, I think he is. Two adult daughter from his first marriage. There are thousands of people who see him as "The man of God for our times". So, to cut him away in a sudden way would be to hurt them, the little ones, just too much too soon. I pray that God will not cut him away but restore him.

Yet.

Today Raschke  had a choice to make. And he made it. He had a message that have been the same for a long time. In summary, if the Governor is from his political party, he would preach a message of support. "God is the one who sets and takes away kings. So if this man was elected, is because he is chosen by God to lead this country. We most pray for him that God will give him wisdom and strength to lead us to a better future."

 Yet if the Governor is from the opposite party he will go 100 percent against him. Quoting the Bible out of context to support his political agenda. Demonizing him. Character assassination at its best.  Presenting delusional arguments as facts. And then, he would ask his followers to vote in the next elections for the best candidates who support the Church [and the Christian agenda as defined by Raschke, of course]. I was hoping he would change that. But he did not.
  
 Today early in the morning I tune in, on the tunein application on my tablet, to the Clamor A Dios radio station. It was a festive environment, mimicking the secular morning programs.  I did not like it. So I turned it off. I was thinking then to tunein latter on to hear Raschke preach. I have prayed to God that Raschke would be given a second chance, to change for good. But later I felt moved by the Spirit not to tune in. 

Just a few hours ago I came, on the internet, upon a Local Newspaper summary of the event. The way the secular reporter wrote, it would seems Raschke have keep the same message but was gentler in his delivery. Based on that summary I wrote a small reply. Hoping that indeed Raschke was changing.

Then about an hour ago, I finally went to Youtube to hear the message Raschke preached today. Knowing from the newspaper summary what he had preached about, I wanted to get a feeling for his mood and style. Honestly: worst that ever.  He keeps mixing his own political views and party affiliation with the message. Insinuating that the People should turn against the present Puerto Rico Government Administration in a violent way. No he did not say that. But insinuated it. Which is worst. 

The same old routine. Gives all the arguments that lead to a logical conclusion, but leave the conclusion out. So that it would take a while for everything to come together in the mind of the listener, and then, perhaps a few hours, perhaps a few days latter, the listener would come to the conclusion that the preacher wanted, but then it would seem that the listener came to that conclusion by him or herself. Pure manipulation. Not the way a preacher should preach.

He had done the same thing last December, saying then that God had shown him that there was a plot to kill the Governor, but following that with a diatribe against the Governor, basically justifying those that would want to kill  him. The subtle psychology was simple: We Christians cannot do it, but it would be justified  to do it... so if you are not a Christians but just a sympathizer... here is a way to help the Church.... I was disgusted then. And I am disgusted now. The same politician using the Bible to push his political agenda, from the pulpit. The same arguments he used then, he repeated now.

And that in the first few minutes of his message.  I could  take it no more. So I stop the video. From the newspaper I knew what he would be talking about next.

[Yet In his words I found something else.] Please pray for Raschke. Sometimes I get offended by some of the things he says and how he says them. Yet he loves the Lord, and has worked his entire life for him. [But I saw something in his words, that tells me that he is getting too close to something dangerous for him.] I don't what him to fall in a bad way. To fall into something that would discredit and bring even more pain to his children and his present wife. Better would be if the Lord retires him in a gentle way. At 71 a life of quietude, raising his son and supporting newer ministers in the Lord. Away from the limelight and the pulpit. With his virtues and flaws, he has served the Lord an entire life.  I would not like him to go down in judgement, the pain on his children, his wife, his relatives and those who still support him would be too great. Please pray for him.

Please, pray for them. Please pray for us.... all. Amen.

Please Pray for Raschke

Earlier today, I took a walk, went to a close-by bank to pay some bills. In my way there and back God gave me understanding about something. We must not think that God will have to physically kill Raschke   on September 1st in order to satisfy Efrain Rodriguez judgement on him.  When God warns somebody about an impending judgment is not because God wants to condemn that person, but that God want that persons to mend his ways. If that persons does, or does not: That is not for us to determined.  I pray and hope that Raschke will, and his ministry will be extended for a long, long time.

On  September 1st, First Monday of September, Labor Day in the USA, Raschke preaches on the "Dia de Clamor" rally he has been leading in San Juan PR, on front of the Capitol building, for the last 41 years.  Consistently that has been the largest annual event in PR. A show stopper in local politics and religion. A platform God gave him....

 For a long time Raschke was seen as the Prophet of God, the man God used to speak to the Puerto Rican nation, to the Puerto Rican people, to warn us about good and bad things. But for the last 16 years, his personal and ministerial life have been plague with conflicts and questionable actions.

Many of those who supported him at the beginning, no longer do. Many individuals have called him to change, but  he has not. About 4 years ago Efrain sent Raschke copy of his prophetic message. Raschke did not respond to him personally, one way or another, but started preaching against him, badmouthing him thru his radio station and elsewhere.  Efrain felt that in so doing Raschke was disregarding a message that came directly from the Holy Spirit. This went on for years, till on this summer the message of judgment against Raschke was declared.

We are all humans, and perhaps Efrain proclaimed this judgment on the heat of the moment, on his own, defending his own ministry and prophetic message. Since then, I have no doubt that thousands of us have prayed to God that God will protect Raschke and no harm will come to him. Yet with his way of preaching, he has hurt many people, dearly. No one should want to see a man of God  fall from grace. But neither do we want to see the little ones, hurt by a man of God who is misusing the ministry  and the platform God himself gave him.

So I do believe and hope that God has extended his love and mercy to Raschke, giving him one more chance to mend his ways. If on September 1st, he preaches the message God want him to preach, his ministry will be extended with the full anointment of God. But If he chooses to preach as he has been doing for years, and perhaps harder, disregarding the warnings God has given him for so long.  Then the Presence of God, the anointment will depart from his ministry, and it will just whither away.

He has been measured, he has been weighted and have been found faulty. Yet he has been giving one more opportunity to mend his ways. Thanks God for that. I pray  that he will. Let us all pray to God that he will. Amen.


As far as Efrain Rodriguez  is concerned, I do believe he received a prophetic message to share with us. His delivery of that message has not been perfect. He speaks for too long, and add and speculate on things that are not part of the prophecy itself. He is not perfect. He is just a local church member, who retired from his job for health reasons, and yet God put him in a 24/7 schedule preaching a highly controversial message, for the last 4 years, for free. If his prophecy happens as he preaches it, many people will seek him and  worship him as a god. If it does not happens within the time-frame Efrain has given, before the end of this year, 2014, then many more will hate him. 

Thus I see and can understand that once his prophetic ministry finishes God may take him away: So that we will focus on the message and not on the messenger.
