Don’t Be Deceived! A Vision of Speed Timothy Rathbun of the Trumpet Call of God

Trumpet Call of God

The Lord Jesus Christ has warned us that in the last days many false messiahs and false prophets will come in His name to deceive even the elect if it were possible. Deception is rising ever increasingly and many well-meaning believers have fallen into it without even knowing they are deceived.

I am drawing your attention to the “Trumpet Call of God” as the Lord showed me in a vision the true spiritual condition of its leader/prophet Speed Timothy Rathbun. I didn’t hear and know anything about Speed Timothy Rathbun and the TCOG until Brother Carlos (nabiy4america) told me of his concern over a dear sister, a common friend who had stopped communicating with us for nearly three years now. I have been concerned about her from the moment I learned of her involvement. I scanned the net for anything I could read about the Trumpet Call of God and the extent/depth of this friend’s involvement. The information I gathered in the two days that I heard of this group is quite disturbing. I could barely sleep and prayed fervently for this dear friend. In answer to my prayer the Lord gave me a vivid dream which showed that my suspicion of the group’s true spiritual condition is right. Unfortunately, the dream also showed that our dear friend is deep into this group. About a month later as I sought the Lord if I had to see and talk to this friend after my calls and past emails went unanswered, He gave me another dream that reiterated the message of the first dream. I also saw in this second dream how she turned away and would not to talk to me anymore. Three days after the second dream, the Lord gave me this vision of Timothy Rathbun during my intercession for this dear sister.

Here is the vision as I shared with Brother Carlos:

“As I was asking the Lord to open her eyes to see the errors of Timothy’s teachings, at the mention of his name I saw the guy in (a) yoga sitting position while enjoying/smoking pot. Then bending forward to the ground and without using his hands, he drank something which I knew was milk.”

His Interpretation:

“Now about Timothy- yoga suggests eastern mysticism/demons/New Age/deception and the milk could have a twofold meaning. Milk of the Word, which in his case means a lack of true spiritual understanding of Scriptures as opposed to “meat,” but I believe it also points to mixing in of some truth to make his deception more “drinkable” to the vulnerable. The ground suggests the earth/world, not of the Spirit of God. No use of hands = no true authority from God. Marijuana = deception… about the milk, it also means that only those at the “milk level” of Bible understanding will be fooled by him.”

As the Spirit led, I emailed this friend about the vision that she might be warned and hopefully would listen and come out of it. Sadly, she didn’t answer me but instead, later removed her blog and her Facebook page which she knew I was reading and watching. (However, she keeps to this day another Facebook page dedicated only to “trumpeting” the letters of Timothy Rathbun). When I realized what she did, I could not help but cry unto the Lord. As I mentioned, she has stopped communicating with us her friends for a long time now. She isolated herself which is the natural result of being indoctrinated into the cult. I felt so bad about the situation and sought God for answers. Feeling so hopeless, He strongly laid in my heart to write and share this on the blog to bring the warning out not only for her and the group but for everyone whom the Lord wants to warn, and, as a confirmation, led me straight to Ezekiel 3:17-27 when I opened my Bible. The two highlighted verses (17 & 27) that immediately caught my eyes say this:

Ezekiel 3:17

17 “Human being, I have appointed you to be a watchman for the house of Isra’el. When you hear a word from my mouth, you are to warn them for me.

27 But when I speak with you, I will open your mouth; and you will say to them, ‘This is what Adonai Elohim says.’ Whoever is inclined to listen will listen, and whoever is inclined to refuse will refuse, because they are a rebellious house.

The message of the Lord is clear- speak up and warn them. So, if you heard of this group or read the so-called letters from God and His Christ supposedly given to Timothy which he describes as the ‘Modern Scripture Spoken to this Generation,’ please know that this group is a cult and Timothy is a false prophet. To say or imply that the letters are in equal footing with or as authoritative as the Bible that must be obeyed is already in itself an error that a discerning believer must know. The letters seem to be authentic as they are taken from the Scriptures but as deception is deception, they contain doses of errors and are twisted  that eventually lead to one’s bondage to Timothy and his teachings. The “Trumpet Call of God” is a prison cell and it is Timothy’s subtle manipulation through the so-called prophetic letters that imprison those who are enticed to join. To cite one example of this manipulative tactics, here’s the ‘letter’ about ‘staying separate.’

Regarding Staying Separate

12/11/04 From God The Father – A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

“My children, struggle not against another’s principles, nor rebuke them, says The Lord. Let go of your own notions of right and wrong, and strive to love one another in spite of yourselves; have compassion for those with whom you disagree. Do not judge them, nor shun them in your heart; rather love those who speak against you, and pray for them. Yet have no part in their sin, nor keep their company anymore, for they do rebel against their God. Their argument is with The Lord, though it may seem as though you have become the object of their dispute. 
For they do always struggle against God, in an effort to hold onto their sin. For it is I who wrote The Law in their hearts. Therefore, they know right from wrong and choose to rebel. Yet if they did not know, then I did not write it within their hearts, nor would they be in the wrong, nor would they be accountable for their sins or guilty of rebellion, for one can not rebel while in ignorance. 

If you casually read the letter, you will simply think it is about staying separate from the world which aligns with the message of the Lord Jesus about being set apart from the world for though we are in the world yet we are not of it.

John 17:16-17

16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. 18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.

In this example, Timothy is subtly telling his “little flock” (that’s how he calls his followers) to stay away from everyone including families who oppose, question or simply do not agree with or accept the letters and believe and obey the instructions thereof. That is the very essence of a cult. He has successfully manipulated them to the point of isolating them from their families. Read some testimonies of past members who escaped from the group from this link:

Damaging Testimonies of Past Members

So, is that what the Lord is saying, to stay away or isolate yourself from everybody who does not agree with the Word? Let’s see what He actually says in the verse prior:

John 17:14-15

14 I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.

The Lord Yeshua did not ask the Father to take us out of the world but that He should keep us from the evil one. We are to remain in the world with everyone around us, believer or unbeliever, but we are to set ourselves apart from the deeds of the world which obviously are opposed to the righteousness and holiness of the Father for which we are called to conform by the grace given to us through our relationship with His Son, our Messiah Yeshua who died in our behalf and imparted to us His very own righteousness. We are not to shut out ourselves in isolation. If you do, what happens then to the Word of the Lord about us being the light of the world, a city on a hill that cannot be hidden?

Matthew 5:14-15

14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

The testimonies of past members contradict this calling to be lights of the world as they actually became stumbling blocks even to their own families in their physical or social and even mental isolation.

Here’s an email from a dear sister in Texas about what she heard/saw about the TCOG:

“… I saw a special on TV about them.  They are very controlling, won’t let you have contact with the outside including your family, friends, and etc.  Sometimes they might let you see your mom or dad but the elders must be present at the meeting.  They won’t let you answer letters, receive phone calls, or having any kind of contact with the outside world.  I think even the house they lived in was boarded up.  It was very depressing. The people that join with them seem to act like zombies.  The elders demand complete obedience.

The TV show that did a special on this cult I think was done by Fox News Channel.  There were two families who each had a daughter taken in by this cult.  All their correspondences were unanswered.  They went to the location where their daughter was but was denied visitation rights.  They called the local police, they came out, but could not do anything because to that point the cult leaders had done nothing wrong where they could intervene.  One of the families did get to see their daughter and alone but nothing positive came of it like the daughter wanting to leave.”

Noteworthy also is how Timothy lives his life for as the Lord says, we shall know them by their fruit (Matt.7:15-16). If the letters indeed are God’s Word through Timothy so as to make them equal to the Bible that the Body must accept and obey, then he should have a life patterned after the Messiah in all manner as a true disciple/prophet, for why should he be more privileged than the Lord? The student is no greater than the teacher. Certainly, Timothy will not make such an outrageous claim that he is for that makes him obvious. So, Timothy’s great teacher and master, Jesus the Messiah, the Son of the Living God who came to reveal to us the Father and reconciled us to Him through His blood and sacrifice had nowhere to lay His head and owned no material riches. He even advised the rich young man to sell everything he owned and give them to the poor and follow him. This should be the kind of life that Timothy Rathbun leads but instead, he lives the opposite. The sad thing is, he gets his privileged life at the expense of his faithful or rather manipulated “little flock.”

Please read Surprising Background on Timothy Rathbun.

Honestly, it is not easy to call one a ‘false prophet’ and label a group ‘cult.’ But after much prayer and seeing the vision, the Lord solidified what I felt strongly about Speed Timothy Rathbun and his Trumpet Call of God.

This friend’s Facebook page dedicated to “trumpeting” Timothy’s letters get so many likes, an indication that people are reading and appreciating the messages. I pray that this article, written in obedience to the Father, reach those who blindly or innocently follow the letters of Timothy Rathbun. May everyone diligently study the Word of the Lord, the Holy Bible. May you seek Him to teach you and lead you into all truths that you may not be deceived by those wolves in sheep’s clothing claiming to have the truth; claiming that theirs is the right way when there is only one who is the Way, the Truth and the Life- Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach. He alone is the True Shepherd on whom we must fix our eyes and follow earnestly for He alone will not mislead us.

John 17:11-15; 27-30

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. 12 But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. 13 The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. 15 As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 

27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. 30 I and My Father are one.”

On a final note, Speed Timothy Rathbun of the Trumpet Call of God is not the only one who misleads the people of God, in fact, his is probably just a small flock compared to the more popular Christian leaders’ whom Brother Joseph Herrin (parablesblog) has written extensively about. If you have not read his articles on “Deception” yet, I highly recommend that you do.

A Father’s Day Message: Pray For All the Fathers in the World!

Father's Day Source

Happy Father’s Day

As the world celebrates Father’s Day today, I could not help but wonder how many people/children in the world don’t have a father to greet, appreciate and celebrate with. I feel fortunate that I grew up with my father and never once experienced being abandoned for whatever reason. My husband, on the other hand, grew up without a father. My parents-in-law separated when he was only around 7 years old. My Mom-in-law raised her children alone. My children are not spared from this unfortunate situation for my husband has been working away from home from the time they were born and so they seldom have time together. My daughter often longs for her Dad’s presence and it tears my heart every time she cries for him.

In 2011, during the most trying moment in my marriage and family, the Lord gave me the very reason why so many men and fathers are falling and failing. It is because the devil has waged war against all men whom God appointed to be fathers and heads over their families to distort the very image of God who Himself is our Father. As he destroys men before the eyes of their children, God’s image as Father is necessarily distorted. It is especially difficult for the abandoned, rejected and neglected children to see God as Father and so this Father’s Day, the best we can do for the fathers and fathers-to-be is to lift them in prayer to the Father who never fails. And for all who longs for a father’s love, this is for you: Father’s Love Letter
