The Pentecostal Church and the New Apostolic Reformation believe in signs and wonders. They not only believe in them but they make money out of them. It should be noted that Jews request a sign. I didn’t know we had so many Jewish Pentecostals? Benny Hinn does a lot of healing on his programs but for some reason I’ve never seen Benny drink poison or handle deadly snakes? Some of the people that Benny Hinn heals don’t even need healing to begin with. Todd Bentley goes so far as to say that you can’t be an apostle if you can’t heal. But what Bentley can’t comprehend is the sign of the times. In all of history there are seven periods of signs and wonders. Moses did them first followed by Elijah and Elisha. Next in line came Jesus Christ followed by the apostles. In the millennial Kingdom signs and wonders will return. Period six of the signs and wonders movement is what we are in now. The majority of the Pentecostal people believe we are in the last days now so this text of scripture is most appropriate. That would mean that the signs and wonders of todcczx=ay is Satan inspired. I don’t know how you can get away from that. And that is what we are seeing today by Pentecostals and the new Apostolic Reformation. I will have more in my next post.
The time of the falling away has arrived. I am 100% convinced of it. Almost daily another apostate group pops up and the falling away is within the body of Christ. I have a good friend that is caught in the middle of one of these groups called the restored Church of God. That body believes that if you leave that particular Church you are doomed to hell. The only true church syndrome. They capture Souls by their own doctrines of men. Jesus would counter that saying, in vain they worship me teaching as doctrines the Commandments of men and you can find that in Matthew 15:9. But there is more to the falling away than the Restored Church of God. The Elijah List, the New Apostolic Reformation, the Hebrew Roots movement, Messianic Judaism, and many more to follow. Many in the body of Christ are being swept into this funnel that will lead to destruction. One of the meanings of falling away is rebellion. Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft. This is a rebellious people, lying children, children who will not hear the Law of the Lord, who say to the seers, do not see, and to the prophets, do not prophesy to his right things, speak to us smooth things, prophecy deceits, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us and this is from Isaiah 30:9-11. The church is in Rebellion against God. We have fallen away from the Bible and giving heed to extra biblical revelation by pastors that have no business in Ministry.This is Todd Bentley and he has no business in the pulpit. He is out of the extreme prophetic movement. I believe the beginning of the end started at Azusa Street with the Revival of the Pentecostal movement and things have spiraled downward ever since. Each new group seems worse than the other. They get further and further away from Bible truth. And no one seems to care. Congregations applaud their foolishness. 1st Corinthians 2:14 says, the natural man does not receive the things of the spirit of God, because they are foolishness to them, nor can he know them because they are spiritually discerned. Discernment in the church is missing in action and has been for some time. The church has fallen for all the foolishness of the Pentecostal movement. We are very close to the rapture. Then the man of sin will be revealed and some pastors will be left behind because they taught their people the wrong things. If the blind leads the blind both will fall into a ditch from Matthew 15:14. The punishment of the prophet Shall be the same of the punishment of the one who inquired and you can find that in Ezekiel 14:10. You won’t be able to blame your eternity pn false teachers because you have a responsibility to know the truth that will set you free but only if you abide in his word, the word of God and John 8:31-32 is where that is found. If you are a part of that Falling Away crowd, repent and return to the body of Christ before it is too late.
All these Ministries are Abracadabra ones as they believe they can speak anything into existence including apostleship. These are what you might call self-made ministers. They make up things outside the Bible. They all believe the Bible is insufficient for our day. That is why they have to have all these extra things weaved in despite no biblical support for their practices. Many speak in tongues without an interpreter and they could care less. These people are clouds without water. They are like whitewashed tombs which appear beautiful outwardly but inside they are full of all uncleanness and apostasy. They should be avoided at all costs. They also want you to send them money continually even though Jesus said, you cannot serve God and money. They want to make a liar out of Jesus. Jesus also said lay up for yourselves Treasures in Heaven not on the Earth. They twist the words of Jesus to get what they want. The majority of them are unsaved people.
Mike Bickle who is the leader of IHOP, which is the International House of Prayer, said in a sermon that he saw an angel standing by his bed with a trumpet to its mouth with a warning to the church. Perhaps he has not read Ezekiel 3 and 33? But if we take what he says to be true, then we have to apologize to Joseph Smith of the Mormon faith who also saw an angel appear at his bedside. Perhaps it was the same angel called Moroni? By the way, if you take the letter i off that Angels name you have what both Smith & Bickel are which is a moron. Perhaps Mike Bickle would be better served if he read the Bible and stop listening to Angels at his bedside which is probably a result of having too much chili the night before?What do you say to that Mike Bickle?
An ever-growing danger in the church today is experience being elevated over scripture. The word experience in Genesis is divination which is the Pagan parallel of prophecy. It was recorded that Laban learned by experience. Churches like the Bethel Church and IHOP are really into experience. In these churches it seems like the Bible has been retired. The New Apostolic Reformation basically has retired the Bible because it believes in extra biblical revelation. They believe that in 2002 the apostolic office was restored to the church and now they’re New Revelations often times not supported by scripture. The prophecy rate in these churches is 20% accuracy. What should that say to those that practice experience over scripture? I think the biblical handwriting is on the wall. Should all this come as any surprise to the True Believer? Imposters will grow worse and worse deceiving, and being deceived. The falling away comes first before the man of sin is revealed. This is what is happening to the church today. Very sad.
As a child do you remember eating the original Wheaties, The Breakfast of Champions? For years Wheaties remained the same. Then General Mills started to experiment a bit and added whole grain Wheaties, followed by Honey coated, frosted, and then with raisins. All were done to enhance the original. I find this happening now with the Bible. We have the stretching Bible. Most of this is Unwritten but in the minds of the Restored Church of God, New Apostolic Reformation, IHOP, Hebrew Roots, and the list goes on and on. All of these groups must find the Bible insufficient. They believe it needs more prophecy. It is true that 85% of the Bible’s prophecies have been fulfilled. That still leaves 15% unfulfilled. The Bible still has a story to tell. There are also warnings in the Bible about adding to the word of God. Proverbs 30:6 says, do not add to his words lest he reprove you and you be found a liar. Do you know who the father of lies might be? Read John 8:44 for your answer. As for the Bible it does not need Improvement. And those that think it does will one day stand before Jesus and try to justify their actions. I believe he will tell them, I never knew you.
Oh? You thought this was about the other IHOP? The International House of Prayer? Mike Bickle? This is the good cop IHOP. Then there’s the bad cop IHOP operated by Mike Bickle. I prefer IHOP pancakes to steal batter any day of the week.
They won’t let me eat at the good cop IHOP. Instead I have to choke down Jim Bakkers survival yucky pancakes. I think I’m getting the raw end of the deal here?
Abracadabra churches include Redding Bethel Church and IHOP. No, that is not the International House of Pancakes but instead the International House of Prayer. What hides behind these seemingly innocent names are churches of Abracadabra Magic and mind control. Bill Johnson is the head of this movement that includes Rick Joyner and Cindy Jacobs. You can speak into existence just about anything which makes this seem extreme even to the goings-on at Pentecostal churches. Mind control of the congregation is the order of the day. Abracadabra churches are the results of people trusting and believing in a lie and for that reason God has sent them strong delusion to believe it. These churches are.to be avoided at all costs. Abracadabra churches are demonic and dangerous. When a leader can say anything and bring that into reality is witchcraft.
The name Kenneth Hagin enters the picture and he was the Forerunner of many of the Pentecostal preachers. His poison through new thought has contaminated every preacher that followed him. Now a new world of Pentecostal pastors are coming up with more poison. These pastors get further and further away from the gospel truth. Now we have the New Apostolic Reformation, the restored Church of God, and the Elijah List. A true Mark of a cult is that they are the only true church and if you find yourself in one run like the Dickens. In a few days our next phase will begin. Stay tuned!
Have you ever heard of such a thing? Bill Johnson in the Bethel church practices regularly this Bizzarre behavior. Can you even imagine walking past the cemetery and observing someone hugging a tombstone? I have a video for you today on Grave Sucking. What do you think?
Juanita Bynum recently said that experience was more important than truth. John 17:17 says, Sanctify them by your truth. Your word is truth. God didn’t say sanctify them by your experience. He said set them apart by your truth. Experience has been the Pentecostal lie for some time. My text scripture above front Ezekiel 13:6-8 covers the Crucks of the Pentecostal problems. You say, the Lord says, when God has not spoken. Because you have spoken nonsense and envisioned lies God is indeed against you. And is there a whole lot of Pentecostal nonsense coming out of those churches today. From IHOP to the Bethel Church and the New Apostolic Reformation to the Elijah List they all use the term, “you say” in reference to God to them. Ezekiel would respond that God has not spoken to them. Thus they believe they have experienced God talking to them. I must confess that I have heard God talking to me when I am studying his word. Comparing spiritual things with spiritual by the leading of the Holy Spirit. Experience does not Trump truth. Jesus Christ himself said that we were to be set apart by his word. Not experience, not thus saith the Lord, and not God told me. God meets me in his word. That is why he said, come let us reason together. Experience belongs on a resume not in the church.
Today in nearly all Ministries in the Pentecostal faith, Oneness Pentecostal, Extreme Prophetic Movement, the Elijah List, the Restored Church of God all abuse Thus saith the Lord. In so doing they can speak into existence just about anything they want. And they do it all outside the boundaries of scripture. Remember Balaam? He was told by God what to do in regards to Israel in Numbers 22. But he was a shyster. King Balak had hired him to curse Israel. He told the king that he would go back to God to see what more the Lord would say to him. WHAT MORE? The Lord had already told him what to do and it took an ass to correct the prophet. Balaam desired extra biblical revelation. To get what he wanted he had to see what else the Lord would direct him to do. That prophet wanted an Acts 29 which is not found in the Bible.
Why would God send anyone strong delusion? Isn’t that usually Satan’s role? The reason why God was involved here was people did not receive the love of the truth so God allowed them to believe the lie. Who are some of the people that believe the lie? The list is vast and includes the Mormons, Christian Science, Unitarians, Christadelphians, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Wicca, the Restored Church of God, and the Hebrew Roots movement. There are many many more. IHOP, Bethel Church, Hillsong, and many Pentecostals that believe in extra biblical revelation. The latter will find they will have a special revelation at the great white Throne judgement. People don’t want to believe the truth because Satan is the father of Lies and the prince of the power of the air. He is an excellent scripture twister. Or in the case of the Christadelphians, he will change the meaning of certain words to fit his agenda. Remember the words of Jesus Christ in Matthew 23:15. They will travel Land and Sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, they will make him twice the son of hell as themselves. I often think of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons that fit that scripture perfectly. Also keep in mind Ezekiel 14:10. The punishment of the prophet shall be the same as the punishment of the one who inquired. That is why God sends people strong delusion so that they can believe the lie. What about this road sign?
