Totally agree with Jabcat and would also like to add that the passage that you're being accused of becoming (itching ears). I couldn't help but relate to your current position as I recognize the same earmarks as you have. But the problem with their accusation is, you weren't going out searching for someone to tell you what you wanted to hear. That passage shouldn't be used as a license for others to throw at you should you find a restlessness in your spirit for God to take you higher. That passage is for those who continue to walk in the flesh, are influenced by fleshly things and want someone to justify their lusts of the flesh.
What God is doing is, he's sending out the call for those with ears to hear, to respond to as the party is about to begin and there are still a lot of empty place-settings at the Father's table. Which message is actually bringing freedom to the captives? The one of hell if you don't? Or the one of Love that fought for you and won?
No, it's not our ears itching . . .it's our hearts starving for the freedom of truth and God has heard and he's responded. Truth is coming to know us and in doing so, we're being set free from the confinement and bondage we had been led into.
2 Timothy 4
1I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
We aren't the first ones that turned away . . .what we're embracing now is that sound doctrine Paul was speaking of and many have "already" turned away from that sound doctrine and we're turning back "to" what they turned "away" from!!
It's the picture of John in Revelation all over again. He heard the voice BEHIND HIM even though he was "in" the spirit when it happened. It's an indication, John being a representative of the church, was "still" found facing the wrong way and in order to "see" the voice, he had to repent, he had to "turn around". We are the voice calling out, but the church needs to "turn around" to SEE his voice in us . . .I did, I turned around . .I had to let go of my entire doctrine and belief system to allow the Father to reconstruct his Truth in me . . . it didn't make my flesh perfect . . .but it perfected my position in Christ which affected the power flesh once had over me.
Don't let them put doubt back into what God has been leading you out of. Freedom is rising up in the church and the religious crowd doesn't know what to make of it . . .but . . .they soon will!!!
