Our Blessed Hope

Thankfully, “Jeremy” the ex-32nd degree Freemason has been well. We have not heard from him since last July. If you are not sure who that is, please refer to this link: https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2020/09/11/words-of-warning-from-ex-32nd-degree-freemason/. He has moved to another state in an area south of the Appalachians, and has been enjoying God’s provision, providence and life-changing power in his life. We praise the Lord for this, and are excited to finally hear from Mr. Jeremy again, for he indeed, is highly valued and very much prayed for.

In the video below more is confirmed concerning the dangers of drinking from the municipal tap water supply in cities and towns. Furthermore, he encourages the listeners to keep any prepping they’ve done a secret for their and their family’s safety. Dangerous days are ahead, and people are going to get desperate. After all, desperate people do crazy things, especially starving people.

Though he does not mention the “hope” of the rapture in this video, I know in the past he has stated that though he “hopes” the rapture will happen, he does not expect it. What he does expect are hard times, including persecution. This is why he prompts people to be physically prepared with food, ways of getting water and ways to purify water, books on using God’s creation for medicinal purposes, etc.

As for Holy Light Ministries, the hope of the rapture is very real and very immanent. That being said, being prepped for any type of natural disaster with some food and water is always wise. Nevertheless, regarding the very end of days in which we are living, Jesus did not teach us to prep, but rather, to trust. Jesus encouraged His disciples to not be consumed with their need for food, daily necessities, clothes, etc. like those who are without Him (Matthew 6:25-34; Luke 12:22-34). Instead, Jesus tells His followers to approach God in faith, praying “give us THIS DAY our DAILY bread” (Matthew 6; Luke 11 — the Lord’s Prayer) and makes it clear that we are not to worry about tomorrow in regards to anything. After all, if God takes care of the ravens and the flowers, will He not all the more take care of us who are His children? (Luke 12:24 and Job 38:41).

Furthermore, Jesus said that when believers see end times events taking place one right after the other that we are to “lift up our eyes for our redemption is drawing nigh” (Luke 21:28). He could have at that point said, “you all had better prep” or “you all need to lay up food and have ways to access water” or “make sure you have a grab bag with dried goods,” but He did not.

If perchance we do go through some hard times ahead just before He calls us home, let us remember this encouragement from Psalm 33 (also found in Psalm 37:19):

18Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope in His mercy,
19To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.

20Our soul waits for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield.
21For our heart shall rejoice in Him,
Because we have trusted in His holy name.
22Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us,
Just as we hope in You.”

Thus, it is wise to have some extra food on hand or even a water purification system, but we encourage everyone to remember what Jesus said in Matthew 6, “31“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” And most importantly, Luke 21, “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

Jesus is coming soon, and our blessed hope is in Him! (Titus 2:13)

Looking up,

Poetry Corner: America, What If?

Tags

, , ,

Poem by: H. E. Basaar, November 2009

What if America were still only a thought,

An unrealized dream and unsought?

What if comforts and security meant more

Than seeking freedom on a distant shore?

What if the pilgrims the harbor did not see,

As they crossed the ocean for religious liberty?

What if there’d been no first Thanksgiving here,

Wherein Pilgrims and Indians rejoiced without fear?

What if the Continental Congress had not met

To discuss the cost of this nation’s course to set,

To declare that all indeed are born free,

To establish a light for all the world to see?

What if there’d been no Henry or Washington?

What if there had been no Hale or Jefferson?

What if hundreds of heroes had never risen?

And to the call of sacrifice listen?

What if God’s hand had not uplifted this land

From the ashes of 1812 to stand?

What if the Awakenings had not taken place

And the U.S. disappeared without trace?

What if slavery’d not been erased by the blood

Of many who battled against the flood

Of small mindedness and ignorance

That tried to suffocate the longing for a chance?

What if this nation hadn’t known Lincoln

Who firmly fought with righteous indignation

All who stood for secession and oppression

And resisted those of hateful repression?

What if no MacArthur had dared to be bold

And valiant soldiers had not fearlessly strode

Across lands and seas and airspace unknown

And seeds of liberty been left unsown?

What would have happened to the Western world

If there’d been no stars and stripes unfurled?

What would have happened in nations worldwide

Without America by their side?

What if those of noble renown had not risen?

What if they’d not broken the bonds of prison?

What would have happened if they had said,

“We only want peace and to be well fed”?

America! Will you not awaken?

Your pillars are broken, your foundations shaken!

The fourth stage cancer of evil has spread,

And America is now nearly dead.

All that was fought for, all that was won,

Sinks deeper into dismal oblivion.

Will not men and women of courage arise,

People who are unmoved by compromise?

Where are patriots willing to lay all aside?

Where are Americans not swayed by the tide?

Where are Christians who’ll keep this nation great?

Let them stand up from every blessed state.

It is time for a moral repentance

Spiritual cleansing, political penitence.

Now is the time to storm the gates of hell

With the power of prayer and a rebel yell.

False Prophets of a False Hope

Tags

It has been said time and again by Church leadership, specifically under the umbrella of the NAR (New Apostolic Reformation, also called Third Wave) that modern prophets are learning, and that even if their prophecies are incorrect this does not make them false prophets. And on top of this, these same leaders predict better days are coming for America. However, what does God say?

In Jeremiah 28 an interesting story unfolds. Before a group of people and priests, a prophet named Hananiah dramatically prophesied that God was going to break the Babylonian yoke of slavery off of the Jews. To make this more vivid, he placed a wooden yoke on Jeremiah, then took it off him and broke it. The prophet Jeremiah agreed, saying, “Amen: the LORD do so: the LORD perform thy words which thou hast prophesied,” (Jeremiah 28:6). However, he also added, “Nevertheless, hear thou now this word…the prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the LORD hath truly sent him,” (Jeremiah 28:7a, 9). Jeremiah agreed with him, but gave the disclaimer that everyone would know if the prophecy was true if it came to pass. Thus, he referred them back to Deuteronomy 18:20-22 which states, “And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?” (Deuteronomy 18:21). And God answers that if the prophecy does not come to pass, then the prophet has “spoken presumptuously” and the people are not to respect that person as a prophet. First John 4:1 agrees with this when it says that we are “not to believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.” Many false prophets. Many.

The story in Jeremiah then takes a twist. God speaks to Jeremiah at home, telling him to go back to Hananiah to tell him the yoke is made of unbreakable iron. “Then said the prophet Jeremiah unto Hananiah the prophet, Hear now Hananiah, the LORD hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust a lie…this year thou shalt die, because thou hast taught rebellion against the LORD. And Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh month” (Jeremiah 28:15,16b-17).

So, let’s get this straight. Hananiah had thought he was right. “I am sure this prophetic word was well received by the people. It brought edification and comfort. It promised blessings and restoration. It spoke kindly to those who had suffered loss and assured the fulfillment of God’s promises. Most likely the people were praising God and some even weeping for joy” (John Bevere, “Thus Saith The Lord?” pg. 100). It did not seem even slightly false…………but…….. it was NOT a word from the Lord!

Not only was it NOT a word from the Lord, it taught the people to rebel against what God had said. For in Jeremiah 27, Jeremiah prophesied that the Jews were to serve Babylon and not resist. But they did not want to hear that! That certainly could not be a word from the Lord! After all, why would God say that they were to submit to a tyrant? Why would God want His people enslaved to Babylon? But, when Hananiah spoke, certainly that was the word of the Lord for it promised good and not evil, liberty and not captivity! The Jews were God’s chosen people, not slaves. The Messiah was to come through them, specifically through the line of Judah. God surely must be sending this deliverance and not chains. Thus, Hananiah’s arrogant words led the people to believe a lie and to rebel against what God really had said.

But then, perhaps, Hananiah had not been prophesying long. Couldn’t he have just gotten it wrong and yet not be a false prophet? He meant well, right? Perhaps he and all those dreamers just needed to be a part of a “school of the prophets.”

Here then is the real question. Is prophecy of the Holy Spirit or of man? If it is of man, then error is quite possible. But, if it is truly of the Spirit, then error is out of the question. God does not make mistakes.

It says in 1 Corinthians 12 that prophecy is a manifestation of the Holy Spirit. This means, that it is the Holy Spirit speaking through the person that is prophesying. Can the Holy Spirit get it wrong????? “The Holy Spirit is not in training, and He only speaks the true and the pure. The error comes when we speak when He has not or we are silent when He is speaking…Samuel, when he was only a boy, gave a pure and fully accurate prophecy his first time (1 Samuel 3:11-19). He did not have to “grow in the gift”.” (John Bevere, Thus Saith The Lord? pg 98).

The Holy Spirit DOES NOT EVER GET IT WRONG!

“In the latter days you will understand it clearly. I did not send the prophets, yet they ran; I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied” (Jeremiah 23:20b-21). God goes on to say that He is “against those who prophesy lying dreams…and lead my people astray by their lies and their recklessness, when I did not send them or charge them” (Jeremiah 23:32). Truly, “They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word,” Ezekiel 13:6. Wrong prophecy is divination, plain and simple. “Simply put, these prophets speak their own oracles as though they were God’s. Yet the words are not God’s but their own. This is another way of describing the imitation or counterfeit of the true prophetic word of the Lord” (John Bevere, Thus Saith The Lord? pg 90).

The Hananiahs, false prophets of a false hope, are not gone, but are living and well today. And there are many of them. There are modern day Hananiahs who prophesy with great fervor and emotion, and more often than not they are wrong. Dead wrong. Yet they have no fear of death, for they say that God does not judge them based on the O.T. any longer.

But….. God does not change, and He honors His word above His name (Psalm 138:2). Thus, “Concerning the prophets: My heart is broken within me; all my bones shake…because of the LORD and because of His holy words. For the land is full of adulterers; because of the curse the land mourns, and the pastures of the wilderness are dried up…both prophet and priest are ungodly; even in my house I have found their evil, declares the LORD. Therefore their way shall be to them like slippery paths in the darkness, into which they shall be driven and fall, for I will bring disaster upon them in the year of their punishment, declares the LORD” (Jeremiah 23:9a,c 10a, 11-12).

And indeed, the nations of the world have rejected God, and His judgment is descending like a tidal wave, even upon America. The rot goes deep. The filth is rampant. The degradation horrific. For it is not merely among the unsaved, but also the saved. But few see it. According to the film “Before the Wrath” only 18% of western Christians believe that Jesus will come back in their lifetime, and only 15% believe in core Christian tenants. The Laodicean church of the west thinks they have need of nothing, that they are safe — but they are not safe and must repent. “17Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.” (Revelation 3)

For over 40 years all together the prophet Jeremiah prophesied, warning the people that Babylon would invade, kill, and take them captive, and then continued to prophesy after the invasion, calling the people to live peaceably under Babylonian captivity. But, ever step of the way the Jews rejected God’s word to them — first to repent and then to live blessed lives while in captivity. They firmly believed those who prophesied good things, that Judah would be made great again, that better times were coming, and that God would preserve them because of the Temple (Jeremiah 7:4). They were after all, God’s people. He would not abandon them. But God told them point blank, “…I do unto this house, which is called by my name, wherein ye trust, and unto the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh,” (Jeremiah 7:14).

So, what happened to Shiloh? Psalm 78 tells us. “56Yet they tested and provoked the Most High God,
And did not keep His testimonies,57But turned back and acted unfaithfully like their fathers;
They were turned aside like a deceitful bow.58For they provoked Him to anger with their high places,
And moved Him to jealousy with their carved images.59When God heard this, He was furious, And greatly abhorred Israel,60So that He forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh,The tent He had placed among men,61And delivered His strength into captivity,And His glory into the enemy’s hand.62He also gave His people over to the sword,And was furious with His inheritance.63The fire consumed their young men, And their maidens were not given in marriage.64Their priests fell by the sword, And their widows made no lamentation.” And 1 Samuel 4 adds that 30,000 (vs 10) plus 4,000 (vs 2) died that day, including Eli’s sons, and the ark of the covenant was taken by the Philistines (vs 11).

What had God’s people done to warrant this? According to Jeremiah 7, they had oppressed the orphan, stranger, and widow, been unjust to one another, shed innocent blood, burned incense to Baal and followed after other gods, were a den of robbers, murders and adulterers, and felt they were justified in doing so because God’s Temple was in their midst.

Do you think that the Church is any different today? Do you think that idolatry is not rampant simply because we do not have idols made out of wood and covered with gold or silver? Are we not the most litigious society in the history of the world, dragging one another to court constantly? Are not the defenseless and poor oppressed? And what shall we say about the greed of both the poor and the rich, for no one is ever satisfied? Indeed, was not Baal the god of prosperity? And what of adultery? How many have divorced and remarried not taking into account what both Jesus and the Apostle Paul stated regarding this matter? What about sexual immorality, from couples having sex before marriage, to those living together before marriage, pornography, watching movies with sex scenes and/or nudity while excusing it by calling it art or it’s just what Hollywood produces, and the list goes on and on? And are not the blood of the innocent shed daily in our cities and towns, even in the name of scientific research and vaccines — and most of us have had one vaccine or another that has aborted fetal tissue in it? And still others have voted for and elected politicians who defended killing babies without even blinking an eye.

And while the Titanic of America sinks into the frigid, icy ocean, Christians continue planning their vacations and job promotions or retirement, and hopes for tomorrow. Like Judah, they are in denial, and fully persuaded by an indomitable hopefulness that America will be spared God’s judgment, that somehow our grave evil will be overlooked because of the goodness of our past. But Shiloh was not spared. Judah was not spared.

As the darkness deepens, the false prophets of the NAR prophesy a false hope to the cancer ridden, dying nation of America are trusting “…in lying words, that cannot profit,” (Jeremiah 7:8). Just as Jeremiah spoke boldly to a his own dying nation of believers who did not want to hear such hard truth, even so American Christians do not want to hear that this nation once “under God” is falling under His judgment in their lifetime. The Constitution has already fallen, and everything else is about to fall: the economy, the American dream, the glory of America . . . And judgment starts first at the Lord’s sanctuary (Ezekiel 9:6).

Remembering Pentecost

Tags

, , ,

This past Sunday was Pentecost Sunday. It seems these days that too few churches even mention the name or even come close to celebrating it. But the day, or rather two days of Pentecost, are incredibly special and underappreciated. It ought to be observed by every church the world over, even as Christmas and Resurrection Sunday are. After all, it is the day that God sent His Spirit to empower believers for the propagation of the Gospel. It is the day that the new covenant was enacted publicly, and the Church was born. Without it, we would not be here.

Remember, God has ordained holidays, and His holidays were performed as dress rehearsals, foreshadows and pictures of His promises yet to be fulfilled. He desired them to be celebrated year after year to prepare the people for their final culmination in Christ. Four of them have been fulfilled. Passover (Jesus was our spotless, sacrificial Lamb), Unleavened Bread (Jesus was buried as one without sin), First Fruits (Jesus was resurrected and promises resurrection to all who believe in Him), and Pentecost (the birthday of the Church).

So, when was the first Pentecost? Did it all begin with the 120 who were gathered in the upper room in Acts 1 and 2? No. This was not the first Pentecost. The first Pentecost, also known as Shavuot, was initially observed three months following the exodus from Egypt. It is called the feast of “weeks” because it comes seven weeks after God’s holy feast of First Fruits, now called Resurrection Sunday. So, seven weeks after the Hebrews crossed the Red Sea, they encamped at Sinai where the first Pentecost unfolded.

The First Pentecost

Exodus 19:1, 16-20 relates the first Pentecost story:

“In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai… And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.20 And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up.”

God Came Down

In this incredible scene, God came down to meet the people. In the verses we did not read, God told them to get washed up to meet Him. And so, for three days they prepared for God’s arrival. Take note of the details we just read. It happened in the morning. There was a loud noise called the “voice of the trumpet,” which was God’s voice, for it has been noted in other parts of Scripture that God’s voice is like trumpet (1 Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 1:10). And there was fire, smoke, thunder and lightning. It was so amazing that the people, including Moses, trembled at the sights and sounds and feelings. It has been said by several sources, that God with His trumpet voice, spoke forth the law into seventy languages. Then over the course of forty days and in the presence of Moses alone, He wrote the law on stone with His own finger (Exodus 31:18).

But, why did God come down on Mt. Sinai? He came to initiate the Hebrews as a nation and as the members of a covenant. Now, a covenant always involves blood that essentially seals the deal. In Hebrew the word covenant comes from a root word meaning “to cut,” for there was the cutting of an animal and the shedding of blood sealed the deal. Without the blood there was no covenant.

And so, the LORD presented the covenant to them, and they accepted, thus becoming His covenant people, a kingdom of priests, a holy nation (Exodus 19:5-6; 24:3,7). “And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning these words…” (Exodus 24:8). The Hebrews were initiated as God’s covenant nation on the day of first Pentecost at Mount Sinai.

The Ascension and the Promised Return

In Acts 1 ten days before Pentecost commenced, we read that Jesus had just ascended into heaven. “9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.” In this we find our eternal hope of Christ’s promised return. To this we cling when all looks bleak, the color of the world dims from gray to black, disasters increase and both world wars and spiritual wars insatiably spread and concerns for our families overwhelm our hearts and minds. Jesus is coming back! Even as He promised to come, He has promised to return. Even as He ascended up into the clouds forty days after His resurrection, He will come back with the clouds of heaven.

In the Meantime…

In the meantime, Jesus knew exactly what, or shall I say Who, we would need. For until that awesome hoped for day, He has promised to empower us with the baptism of the Holy Spirit. In Acts 1 we read, “4 And, being assembled together with them, [Jesus] commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.8ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem… These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren… (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,)…”

Pentecost Fulfilled

Acts 2:1-21

“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine. But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Exodus 19 and Acts 2

Just as in Exodus 19 God came down in the morning to initiate the Hebrews to His covenant and nationhood, even so in Acts 2 Peter confirms that it was 9:00am in the morning when God came down again. Just as in Exodus 19 there were loud noises of thunder, even the trumpet of God, in Acts 2 there also was the loud sound of a mighty, rushing wind. Even as there was much fire upon Mount Sinai, in Acts 2 the Holy Spirit descended in what appeared to be tongues of fire. As some scholars believe that God on that first Pentecost spoke forth the law into the 70 languages of the world, even so the Holy Spirit in Acts 2 declared the wonders of God in the languages of the world through the believers who had tarried in Jerusalem. And that day, God fulfilled His promise by writing His word upon the hearts of those who believed instead of on tablets of stone (2 Corinthians 3:3). Even as the Hebrews had been brought into a covenant with God and were sprinkled with the blood of sacrificial animals, Acts 2 saw the ceremony of a new covenant in Christ’s blood brought to the believers, forming and empowering them as a holy nation. Though Acts 2 was not the first Pentecost it was the incredible fulfillment of what God had promised for it brought about an interminable and indomitable Pentecost.

After all, the first Pentecost at Sinai was but a foreshadowing of a better covenant through the shed blood of the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the initiation of Christians as a holy nation. As it says in 1 Peter 2:9-10, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.”

Today

And so that remarkable day of Pentecost God brought to pass what He had always intended. Fifty days after Jesus’ resurrection, the rushing wind of the Most High God swept through that room as the Holy Spirit baptised the believers with tongues of fire as they were immersed into a new covenant of Christ’s holy blood. They were made a new nation of priests and kings empowered here as ambassadors, spokespersons of the heavenly kingdom and of it’s eternal, almighty King.

While we await the day of Christ’s return, He has promised to empower us with His Holy Spirit of Truth (John 14:15-31 and Acts 1). Jesus says in John 7:38-39, “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)”

Today Jesus is glorified and is seated at the right hand of the Father on high, and believers are still promised this empowering of the Holy Spirit of the Living God, and true sign and seal of the new covenant established in Christ’s blood.

Conclusion

We conclude today with Hebrews 12:18-24.

18 For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest, 19 and the sound of a trumpet and the voice of words, so that those who heard it begged that the word should not be spoken to them anymore. 20 (For they could not endure what was commanded: “And if so much as a beast touches the mountain, it shall be stoned or shot with an arrow.” 21 And so terrifying was the sight that Moses said, “I am exceedingly afraid and trembling.”) 22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel. 25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, 26 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a consuming fire.”

As we remember Pentecost, let us also live in Pentecost. Jesus is coming soon! Let’s be ready!

Psalm 52: God HAS Done It!

, , , ,

1Why do you boast in evil, O mighty man? The goodness of God endures continually.
2Your tongue devises destruction, Like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
3You love evil more than good, Lying rather than speaking righteousness. Selah
4You love all devouring words, You deceitful tongue.5God shall likewise destroy you forever;He shall take you away, and pluck you out of your dwelling place,And uproot you from the land of the living. Selah6The righteous also shall see and fear,And shall laugh at him, saying,7“Here is the man who did not make God his strength, But trusted in the abundance of his riches,
And strengthened himself in his wickedness.”8But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God;I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever.9I will praise You forever, Because You have done it; And in the presence of Your saints I will wait on Your name, for it is good.”

This week, at the 75th World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland, the U.S. along with 193 other nations are on the verge of readily and eagerly ceding their sovereignty over to the World Health Organization otherwise dubbed WHO in all matters of pandemics, etc. In years past, these leaders and groups and meetings were secretive and secluded, with only those present knowing what was presented. Only a select few knew the plan, and those that attempted to expose that plan were silenced. That was then. This is now. Before, they were only planning and strategizing. But, now, they are implementing those plans, and all “World Economic Forum groomed” leaders are strategically in place. And thus, an air of invincibility has enveloped them, and they can be open because everything is set. It’s as if they are saying, “Who cares who knows now?! No one can stop us!”

And indeed, the stage is set. But, they only think they are secure. For truly it is God who is in control, and the book of Revelation is about to fall upon them like an unexpected bolt of lightning, a deafening clap of thunder, and the shaking of a mighty earthquake. For, not only America, but the nations of the world have forsaken God. One by one they have been persecuting Christians, from North Korea, to China, to Indonesia, to India, to Crimea, to Russia, to Saudi Arabia, to Israel, to Sudan, to Eritrea, to Canada and the list goes on. Millions upon millions have been slaughtered because they wear the name of Christ, and many others are persecuted in their employment and even imprisoned mercilessly for their faith. The nations are raging and the people are plotting a vain thing, and what a century ago had been only the dream of a few elite secret society members is now being realized by the masses. Though God has seemingly kept silent so far, He says in Psalm 50:21-22, “These things you have done, and I kept silent; You thought that I was altogether like you; But I will rebuke you, And set them in order before your eyes. 22“Now consider this, you who forget God, Lest I tear you in pieces, And there be none to deliver…”

And thus Psalm 2, Psalm 52, Psalm 92, Psalm 96, Psalm 98, Isaiah 24, Daniel, Zechariah, Matthew 24, Luke 17 and 21, Mark 13, 2 Peter 3, and Revelation were written. For God did not want His people to despair when evil appears to be prospering, for God is still good, His mercy still endures, and His name is worthy of our trust. He is a righteous judge, and He is coming.

Psalm 52, though written around 3,000 years ago regarding a very specific event in the life of David, is still very much applicable today. For David it was regarding the betrayal of Doeg the Edomite who was chief herdsman and head servant over King Saul’s servants as recounted in 1 Samuel 21-22. David had hurriedly escaped King’s Saul’s plot to kill him, and had been on the run for three days. It can be assessed from the story that he had taken no provision with him. He had no sword, no armor, no change of clothes, no money, and no food. At last he came to the city of Nob which is located very near Jerusalem to the northeast. There Ahimelech suspiciously yet dutifully supplies David with the holy bread from the table of showbread in the Holy Place.

Now, according to David in 1 Samuel 21:5, the bread though holy, was also in a manner common because the priests had that very day exchanged it for hot, fresh loaves. Leviticus 24 says, “8Every Sabbath he [the priest] shall set it [the bread] in order before the Lord continually, being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant. 9And it shall be for Aaron and his sons, and they shall eat it in a holy place; for it is most holy to him from the offerings of the Lord made by fire, by a perpetual statute.” Based on these details, we can know that it was the Sabbath day when David stood before Ahimelech, and David knew that the old twelve loaves (symbolic for the twelve tribes of Israel) was being changed out for the fresh bread on that day. And thus, David reasoned that the bread was now in a manner common. “Giving anyone this bread other than the priests was unheard of and never repeated. After all, this holy bread, called “most holy unto Him” (Leviticus 24:9), was for God’s sanctified priests alone. This incredible experience would have impacted David greatly, indelibly imprinting upon his heart the awesome generosity of our great God in a time of extreme and desperate need,” (Psalm 23:5 article). The Critical-Experimental Commentary by Jamieson, Fausset and Brown states that these loaves of bread were exceptionally large, weighing upwards to 13.5 pounds.

Along with the five loaves that David requested, Ahimelech also gave David Goliath’s sword that had been stored there for whatever reason. And Ahimelech did this without knowing that David was running from the king. Nevertheless, a certain man by the name of Doeg the Edomite was watching all of this unfold, and told the king that Ahimelech had sided with David against King Saul. Because of this King Saul ordered the wholesale slaughter of all of the Lord’s priests, including Ahimelech, and their families. Though King Saul’s Israelite servants would not follow his order to kill God’s priests, Doeg the Edomite gladly obliged. “So Doeg the Edomite turned and struck the priests, and killed on that day eighty-five men who wore a linen ephod. 19Also Nob, the city of the priests, he struck with the edge of the sword, both men and women, children and nursing infants, oxen and donkeys and sheep—with the edge of the sword.” (1 Samuel 22:18-19).

However, we are also told that one of Ahimelech’s sons escaped with an ephod and ran to David to inform him and to find safety. It was then that David wrote Psalm 52, regarding one who makes his boast in evil, his trust in riches, and his strength in wickedness.

Indeed, evil is boasting right now. They are openly allowing everyone to see what they are doing because they are confident that their plans will move forward in spite of chaos and resistance. After all, they love chaos. They feed off of it, and are energized by it. Like Doeg the Edomite felt confident in his razor sharp words against David, these modern day elite Doegs make riches their trust and wickedness their strength. Even so, they are boasting, devising destruction, and crafting deceit, from ceding the sovereignty of each nation to the WHO, to implementing a one world, blockchain currency, to tracking and tracing and surveillance via technology, and the global depopulation via the vaccine, food shortages and inflation.

But let us also be reminded by David that God is still good continually, that His mercy lasts forever, that we as His children are like green, flourishing olive trees in the house of our God, and all these boastful evil ones will be destroyed forever, shall be plucked up and uprooted “from the land of the living” (vs 5). But, “6The righteous also shall see and fear, And shall laugh at him, saying, 7“Here is the man who did not make God his strength, But trusted in the abundance of his riches, And strengthened himself in his wickedness.” And with David may we say, “9I will praise You forever, Because You have done it; And in the presence of Your saints I will wait on Your name, for it is good.” He has done it. Not will do it. Not could do it. Not shall do it. Not might do it. He HAS done it! Hallelujah!!! It is finished, just like He said!!!

Jesus is coming soon! Let’s be ready!

Quote: “Says the Critical-Experimental Commentary by Jamieson, Fausset and Brown, the twelve loaves or “cakes” of the showbread were baked by the Levites, the flour being furnished by the people (I Chronicles 9:32; 23:29). Oil, wine and salt were the other ingredients (Leviticus 2:13). Each loaf was to be “two tenth deals” — that is, of an ephah. In other words, each loaf weighed about 13.5 pounds. Every Sabbath day hot new loaves were placed on the table and the old loaves were removed and eaten by the priests, except in cases of dire emergency (I Samuel 21:30-6i; Luke 6:3-4).

Famine, Economic Collapse, Prepping, and What Christians Are To Do

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Because of all the recent and increasing talk of food shortages, sky rocketing grocery store prices, and whispers of economic collapse, it seemed imperative to address this topic briefly. I need not list the rather LONG list of sources regarding this, for they are easy enough to find in search engines online. But, it is important to share Really Graceful’s video she produced recently which asks important questions and connects some very important dots about the recent destruction of food processing plants across the United States. As the pieces of the puzzle come together, the picture that emerges shows a deft orchestration of these fires and plane crashes. Please, watch this very insightful video listed below entitled, “Something Strange is Happening to U.S. Food Processing Plants.”

Yes, it does appear that the Revelation black horse is riding or preparing to ride very shortly, wherein prices of an individual person’s daily necessary food will cost one full day’s pay (Revelation 6). What Jesus related in Matthew 24 about famines is very much on the verge of unfolding not just in Africa or some other third world nation but worldwide, and is in the process of being implemented now. No, things will not get better. They will get worse.

Yes, this famine and even economic collapse has been planned and is being implemented through the deliberate destruction of livestock, the pollution of crops as well as paying farmers not to plant crops, the recall of perfectly good produce and other food products from grocery store shelves, fertilizer shortages, and the destruction of food processing plants upon which American’s depend. The leaders of the world may blame this “food shortage” otherwise known as famine on the COVID “plandemic” or on Russia and its war against Ukraine. But the war in Ukraine is merely the the detonation of a planned, controlled demolition of Europe’s bread basket that will in effect bring Europe, Russia, the U.S., Canada, etc. to economic collapse. Why? World leaders are ready to implement a new world order blockchain, digital currency, are already bringing about their new world order agenda, and are ready to introduce their new world order leader.

I conclude by turning everyone’s eyes to Psalm 33 which reads,

18Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope in His mercy,
19To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.”

Whether or not Christians actually endure a full-fledged famine, we are for certain experiencing the beginning of scarcity and are apart of economic upheaval right now. And no matter how much we will go through or will not go through, Jesus said of these days that we are in, “See that you are not troubled…” (Matthew 24:6), and “do not be terrified” (Luke 21:9), for “when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near” (Luke 21:28).

Along with this encouragement Jesus also warned, 34“But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” (Luke 21)

I want to call on all of you to reread Daniel, Zechariah, Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 17, Luke 21, 2 Timothy 3, 2 Peter 3, and Revelation. I then want to remind you that Jesus did not advise that His people store up food, have water purification systems, self sufficient farms, emergency grab bags, or backyard chickens. And really, what security can be found in any of that when modern technology does not allow for anyone to be anonymous or hidden?

Instead, Jesus points Christians to fearless vigilance, ceaseless prayer, and the hope of His return. Though having extra food and water and emergency supplies on hand if one is able to do so is wise, let us not become obsessed with something that Jesus did not call believers to do. These are not the days of Joseph. These are the final seconds left before the end of this age wherein Jesus calls His Bride up, casts Satan out and down, and Jacob’s Trouble commences.

Therefore, when we hear these disturbing things in the news and wonder what we ought to do, and feelings of panic or worry flutter up, we must recall that we are commanded by Jesus not to worry, not to fear, but rather, are to be alert and to always be praying. Remember that Jesus said we are to pray that we might be “counted worthy” to escape what is coming on the earth. In the Greek this is a command. This prayer is imperative. And the exact time Jesus wanted us to pray that prayer is now.

Jesus is coming soon! Let’s be ready! I pray that we are all counted worthy!

Do Not Be Deceived: Watch the Water

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

“For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. 14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. 15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:8-15

We as children of the light are to expose the darkness. Whatever darkness that we come into contact with cannot and is not to remain hidden when the light hits it. I mean think about it. You and I as Christians are made up of light. We are not just children of light. We are light – in the Lord. So when we enter a dark room the light will illuminate that space, exposing whatever cobwebs, filth, or depravity lies inside that darkened room. It is inevitable. This is true in our workplace with our non-Christian co-workers, in our homes with our non-christian family members, in the grocery store, the retail outlet mall, when we visit our doctor’s office, with whatever we are learning whether at the university, in books, or online, and when it comes to dark agendas behind closed doors, in governments, and laboratories worldwide.

It is clear from Scripture that “… evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived,” (2 Timothy 3:13), and that deception will be rampant at the close of the age just before Jesus returns. Thus, Jesus says we are to be cunning as serpents and innocent as doves (Matthew 10:16), and that we must not hide our lights under our beds (Luke 8:16). The darker the days become and more sinister the works of evil become, our lights must be all the brighter and our testimony all the louder. We must wisely assess the times in which we live, and be alert to the plans and devices and strategies of the enemy, while at the same time remaining “innocent” in that we do not knowingly or unknowingly participate in those plans.

These strategies and devices are not vaguely general nor simply spiritual nor are they merely conspiratorial, but they are coming to fruition in living color today. Their overarching title is the “new world order”, and it is moving forward at break neck speed, even “warp speed.” Event 201 in October of 2019 (https://www.centerforhealthsecurity.org/event201/) became realized through the implementation of the pandemic of 2020, and now according to economist Dr. Pippa Malmgren at the World Government Summit 2022, they are currently implementing a new digital blockchain currency as well (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvXdSvja-aI).

Furthermore, in the past month, Dr. Bryan Ardis has stirred the waters, creating waves via the revelation of a theory regarding snake venom being released in the world’s water supply, injected via the vaccine, and even administered in the drug Remdesivir. Because of his startling conclusion, some in the medical world are beginning to respond. This is good. They ought to investigate and take this hypothesis seriously, because the information is serious. In the true scientific world, such hypotheses are not merely dismissed nor belittled but are researched and painstakingly evaluated.

Not long ago I posted an article (“There’s Still Power in the Blood of the LAMB,” https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2022/04/26/theres-still-power-in-the-blood-of-the-lamb/) sharing Dr. Ardis’ theory and the video links because I felt it was something worth taking into consideration, for it logically aligns with the serpent worshiping, Luciferian elite leadership in nearly every nation today. That being said, even if nothing has been put into the drinking water, Dr. Ardis’ research has made over 5 million aware of strange and sinister research taking place surrounding snake venom and pharmaceutical drugs and their links to vaccines. If nothing else, his interviews have drawn people’s attention to truths about fallen angels, hybrids, transhumanism, and how science is not merely dabbling in these demonically inspired things but are progressing full steam ahead in their pursuit of them and the implementation of them worldwide.

This being said, there are some points that need to be clarified. So, without further ado, let’s get to it!

Clarification Needed

In a recent Jan Markell video entitled “Are We Ready for a New World Order?” https://rumble.com/v1240cw-are-we-ready-for-a-new-world-order.html, she and her panel of two pastors, Mark Henry and Brian Holthaus, correctly expose the deeds of darkness of the most recent World Government Summit and all who are in league with it, including the World Economic Forum, the World Health Organization, CNN, The International Monetary Fund, MSNBC, ZOOM, The World Trade Organization, TIME, The United Nations, Euronews, Unicef, Sky News, International Labor Organization, and more, including the 91 countries that have signed on to the creation of a new digital currency as well as World Economic Forum contributor and lead adviser of Klaus Schwab Yuval Harari’s praise of a surveillance society (under the skin) and “upgrading humans into gods” and humans being “hackable animals”.

Pastor Holthaus correctly asserted that “With this kind of knowledge comes responsibility. A big responsibility…to whom much is given, much will be required,” and “if you know this, if you can understand it, if you can connect dots, you have a greater responsibility. So, whatever God has you to do, you stay at your mission. You don’t ever give in to these people. You fight all the way to the end! Until the Lord’s ready to call you home!” How true this is!

However, it is imperative to make several points of clarification regarding the concerns this same panel raised about the information Dr. Ardis presented, and what Dr. Ardis actually said. Though I respect Jan Markell very much, she and her two pastor panel misrepresented Dr. Ardis. Though they played snippets of his interview with Stew Peters, it was obvious that they completely misunderstood and made light of the gravity of what Dr. Ardis had revealed. Truly and in accordance with what Pastor Holthaus said about connecting the dots and great responsibility, Dr. Ardis, who said that God was telling him to “not give up, and you have to tell the world,” was indeed given a great weight of information via his extensive research, connected the proverbial dots, and has stayed on his mission to tell the world. Is it not only right to seriously consider it?

Can the DNA be altered through drinking water?

Continuing on, Jan Markell and her panel (Pastor Brandon Holthaus and Pastor Mark Henry) seemed to think that what Dr. Ardis asserted was that one’s DNA can be altered through drinking water. This is not at all what Dr. Ardis related. Rather, Dr. Ardis said that one could be made sick with COVID-19 symptoms after drinking water with snake venom in it – although it could also be aerosoled (sprayed in the air).

On the other hand when one takes the mRNA vaccine (Pfizer and Moderna specifically), that mRNA quite likely is changing the person’s DNA. Though Dr. Ardis did say his concern is that when this takes place the person becomes a hybrid, he did not say at any time that it is the mark of the beast nor did he say that a person loses their salvation. He says that “they” (those who have plotted and planned this) likely want to get snake mRNA venom into you to make you a hybrid. He does not say that they’ve accomplished this.

Again, it must be reiterated that a DNA change does not take place because of drinking contaminated water. It is only those who inject it into their bodies via the vaccine that a DNA change can take place.

A Host of Witnesses: MRNA Does Alter the DNA

Pastor Holthaus (on the Jan Markell video) goes on to mention the importance of having two or three witnesses regarding this matter, such as Dr. McCullough and Dr. Robert Malone.

To begin with, these two very busy men likely have not had a chance to research this nor comment on it yet. Secondly, McCullough may not comment on this topic for it may not be his expertise. Not all doctors address all medical subjects. They are skillful at certain things. Perhaps Malone will comment, but I have my doubts, and have had doubts about Malone all along anyway.

Though Jan Markell’s panel all agreed that the mRNA vaccine is evil and not to be trusted, Pastor Holthaus voiced grave concern about Dr. Ardis saying that mRNA can change one’s DNA and turn one into a hybrid. The pastor made it sound like Dr. Ardis was alone in this strange and novel idea. But, Dr. Ardis is not as alone in this belief as Pastor Holthaus assumes. Though Pastor Holthaus may dismiss the concept of mRNA vaccines changing one’s DNA, Dr. Malone and a host of other medical professionals have already addressed the topic of the dangers of mRNA vaccines because they are actually gene therapy (Dr. Malone, https://canadafreepress.com/article/unethical-medical-experiments-how-to-introduce-genetic-manipulation-to-the-world; https://vaccinefreedom.wordpress.com/2021/07/30/inventor-of-mrna-vaccine-warns-against-the-covid-shot/. And numerous other medical professionals agree that mRNA vaccines alter one’s genes as revealed at this address https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/watchman-on-the-wall/). After all, genetic modificationand/or manipulation is what gene therapy is all about (https://www.wordnik.com/words/gene%20therapy; https://www.fda.gov/vaccines-blood-biologics/cellular-gene-therapy-products/what-gene-therapy).

Dr. Carrie Madej, https://biblescienceforum.com/2020/09/03/moderna-vaccine-may-create-transhumans/comment-page-1/ has explained mRNA and transfection which is basically the process by which one’s genes are altered by this technology. She explains that through this technology they are in effect creating humans from 1.0 to 2.0., and are changing our humanity to something other than God created us to be. Dr. TenPenny, https://player/lightcast.com) explained in detail about the mRNA vaccines and what they do once injected in the human body. Dr. Andrew Wakefield unapologetically stated that they will cause irreversible genetic alterations. Many medical professionals agree that this is not a vaccine at all, and call it gene therapy, genetic alteration, and even a pathogen creator (Children’s Health Defense, “Altering human genetics through vaccination,” 2018, https://childrenshealthdefense.org/news/altering-human-genetics-through-vaccination/. Dr. David Martin, a scientific patent lawyer, is another outspoken witness regarding this, https://www.bitchute.com/video/OrpBbBzlfWVW/. The Really Graceful youtube channel also revealed a few years ago that gene altering vaccines were coming in the near future as seen in the video “Red Pill Your Friends: Human Farmers,” (info found near the 7 min mark) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwOQvZvmvb4.

On top of this, Dr. Ardis is not the only one to ever have called it a “bio-weapon”, for Dr. Martin, Dr. Fuellmich, Dr. Lee Merritt and Dr. Mikovits specifically have all called it this. Dr. Merritt did so in an interview on the New American, (https://thenewamerican.com/bio-warfare-weaponization-of-medicine-amid-covid/); Dr. David Martin did so as well, (“”This Is A Bioweapons Program Designed To Kill Us”…” May 2021, https://www.bitchute.com/video/u1eJWbgj1ouW/); and Dr. Mikovits also asserted this in her interview on Ministry Now, August 30, 2021, (https://player.lightcast.com/zkzNwcTN). Even Pastor Bill Crone states that such technology can easily be used as a bioweapon spray (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfjawButmsQ).

Thus, there are more than two or three witnesses that state that mRNA vaccines are actually gene therapy, which means that they very definitely alter one’s DNA. Many have been sounding the alarm about this from the beginning. This information is not new.

The Coordination of Evil

When it comes to the coordinated effort to poison targeted water systems around the world with snake venom, Jan Markell and the two pastors regard this as completely impossible. There seems to be such cognitive dissonance that evil could be so synchronized to pull off such an incredible feat.

However, have the leadership of the nations around the world not been coordinated in their efforts regarding the COVID-19 plandemic? Are they not all in “lock step” together in the implementation of it? If the powers that be and all those beneath them are so coordinated in their efforts for a new world orderand now a new world digital currency, why not also be coordinated in pouring “nanocarrier” stabilized snake venom into the water systems worldwide, or even via gene sprays in the air that fall with the rain and wash into the targeted water systems or wells or even end up in the crops and ultimately the food that we eat?

Other Coordinated Evil

However horrific as this might be, it is not that far fetched nor as impossible as many may think. After all, great evil has been done before. So, why not now?

When one looks at the mountains of evidence on the side of coordinated evil, snake venom in the water is not impossible!

Confirmations

Even Dr. Lawrence Palevsky stated that the COVID-19 illness that he endured was more akin to blood poisoning than a flu or cold, and conventional medical treatments could not help him. Thus, he sought the aid of homeopathic remedies, Chinese medicine, etc. (https://player.lightcast.com/zkzNwcTN)

Furthermore, I want to remind everyone that ex-32nd degree Freemason “Jeremy” warned that he had been consistently told over and over again that there was a set plan in place to contaminate the water in cities in order to cause a pandemic and “to cause mass casualties…” (“Big Update from Jeremy Ex-32 Freemason,” this info is found at the approximately the 43 minute mark, July 15, 2021, https://aminutetomidnite.com/2021/07/16/364-big-update-from-jeremy-ex-32-freemason/).

What About the Catholic Church?

On a spiritual note, the concerns expressed by Jan Markell’s panel over how Dr. Ardis handles the Pope and the Catholic church, I want to remind you of and refer you to Thomas Horn’s book, Petrus Romanus, Dave Hunt’s “A Woman Rides the Beast,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkbPijytkXg and Chris Pinto’s “A Lamp in the Dark,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5ZgR6DqTPY. All three of these cover the Catholic church from different vantage points, but all three point out the great power and influence that the Catholic church, the Pope, and the Jesuits now have and have had throughout history. The present pope is not a mere Catholic but is very much of the Jesuit order. They are very much aligned with the New World Order agenda. They are not innocent. They are not Christian. (“Pope Francis Calls for a New World Order After the Pandemic,” March 15, 2021, https://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2021/03/15/pope-francis-calls-for-new-world-order-after-the-pandemic/; “Pope Francis the Vicar of a New World Order,” 2021, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVbgzifM6_A; Counterfeit Christianity of Roman Catholocism #11: Dave Hunt Proves Romanism to be Damnable Lies,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zFWfX3kVKw; “Are Roman Catholics Christian?” https://carm.org/roman-catholicism/are-roman-catholics-christian/;

Time To Pray and Research for Yourself

Please, reflect prayerfully on Dr. Ardis’ findings, and do your own research. Look up the articles that Dr. Ardis presented in the videos below. We may not be able to run lab work on the vaccines or the water or Remdesivir, but we can look up the articles and we can listen to the warnings of other medical professionals and researchers regarding the dangers of mRNA vaccines and CRISPR technology and the stark reality of transhumanism, artificial intelligence, chimeras, hybrids, and the like. The reputable and doctrinally sound Christian program Sky Watch TV has done a lot of videos on these topics that can be found at their website https://www.skywatchtv.com/.

Evil vs. God

No matter how evil and widespread evil gets, it is imperative that we stand on the truth of God’s word, and remember what He has said. What He said applied then, and still applies today. It does not change. These are not times to be afraid or hide, but are times to be bold and courageous, and to stand unwaveringly for truth and righteousness. The world is passing away, but God’s word endures forever (Matthew 24:35; Luke 21:33). This age is swiftly coming to a close (Matthew 24), but God’s kingdom to which we belong is eternal (Psalm 145:13; Isaiah 9:7). Daniel 7 unequivocally states,

13 I was watching in the night visions,
And behold, One like the Son of Man,
Coming with the clouds of heaven!
He came to the Ancient of Days,
And they brought Him near before Him.
14Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom,
That all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion,
Which shall not pass away,
And His kingdom the one
Which shall not be destroyed.”

Though the enemy’s very real, coordinated plan is marching ahead at warp speed, God’s plan is the one that will prevail. We will still trample on serpents and scorpions, overcome the lions, and crush the cobra under our feet (Psalm 91; Luke 10:19; Romans 16:20). For, God wins, and in Christ we are more than conquerors! (Romans 8)

Psalm 31

Let us then stand in agreement with Psalm 31 which reads,

3For You are my rock and my fortress;
Therefore, for Your name’s sake,
Lead me and guide me.

4Pull me out of the net which they have secretly laid for me,
For You are my strength.

5Into Your hand I commit my spirit;
You have redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.

13For I hear the slander of many;
Fear is on every side;
While they take counsel together against me,
They scheme to take away my life.

14But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord;
I say, “You are my God.”
15My times are in Your hand;
Deliver me from the hand of my enemies,
And from those who persecute me.

19Oh, how great is Your goodness,
Which You have laid up for those who fear You,
Which You have prepared for those who trust in You
In the presence of the sons of men!
20You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence
From the plots of man;
You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion
From the strife of tongues.

23Oh, love the Lord, all you His saints!
For the Lord preserves the faithful,
And fully repays the proud person.
24Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart,
All you who hope in the Lord.”

In Conclusion

We are held accountable for the knowledge that we have been given, and will be held accountable for our handling of that information. We must therefore, be vigilant to use our knowledge well by sharing it with others as the Spirit of God leads, and as children of light we must wisely expose evil when we see it. It is imperative.

In harmony with this truth, Dr. Ardis has done his due diligence and taken to heart this directive and has researched and exposed a very grave evil. It’s all interconnected, and when you think about the devil that old serpent, it makes perfect sense. He’s wanted to corrupt God’s image in us from the beginning, and at this point in history is seeking to do so through the corruption of our DNA – even Christians. And why would the serpent not do so with viper venom?

Whether or not water is the vector of a poison or gene spray chemtrails in the air or the use of another means, he has brought to light the very clear fact that researchers in lab coats and leadership around the world and the enforcement officials beneath them and others who follow orders, have carried this out in a concerted effort. It is time to wake up and smell the very pungent, putrid odor of death propagated under the guise of science and the greater good. We must not hide our heads in the sand. We must not be silent. We must not for fear of being called “tinfoil hatters” reject our God-given commission to be the lights of the world. Even Pastor Holthaus at the risk of being a “tinfoil hat guy” has stood his ground regarding the knowledge that has been revealed to him. Why not Dr. Ardis? Why not us?

The end of this age is directly in upon us, and Jesus’ return for His Bride is IMMANENT. Now is the time to do what we are called to do, even if it means that people will hate us and call us names and put us on their hit list. As children of light we must be exposing the deeds of darkness, redeeming the time for the days are evil. Now. Now is the time. If not now, when? Are you willing? Let us be faithful in what God has called us to do with the knowledge that we have, and not be so quick to judge the ministry of another (1 Corinthians 4; https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2022/02/18/1-corinthians-4-judging-gods-ministers/). In accordance with Psalm 31, let us “Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the Lord.”

Jesus is coming soon! Let’s be ready!

Exposing the darkness,

The “shock” that many people experience when first hearing about snake venom used in drug development is an artifact of their lack of knowledge about modern medicine. The widespread use of venom from snakes, lizards, frogs, cone fish, stingrays and other creatures is well known in pharmaceutical research circles. It isn’t a “fringe” theory, nor a conspiracy theory.

It is a biological fact.

Remember the WEF article linked above? It states, “Prialt, derived from the venom of cone snails, is used by some of the estimated 22 million adults in the US who suffer from severe and chronic pain.”

Millions more take Captopril, and there are several other venom-derived, FDA-approved drugs that are routinely prescribed by doctors.

The irrefutable fact is that millions of Americans swallow reptile venom every single day. They just call it “meds.”

The fact that most of them are completely ignorant of the origins of these substances doesn’t excuse those in the corporate media or indy media for also being ignorant. Those who are going to comment on Dr. Ardis and the snake venom theory should at least familiarize themselves with the state of the art in biosciences…”

Earlier today, a UK company literally named “Venomtech” announced a massive venom peptide and venom fragment library to be used for drug discovery by pharmaceutical companies (as well as pesticide used for agricultural companies).”

“In response to Dr. Ardis’ revelations about the possibility of snake venom peptide delivery via water systems, there has been almost derision from certain influencers who claim that snake venom wouldn’t be stable in municipal water systems. In effect, they are absurdly claiming that tap water is anti-venom. If that were true, all snake bites could simply be treated by drinking tap water. In truth, the National Library of Medicine has published a study that reveals the existence of “nanocarriers” which can stabilize snake venom peptides in order to achieve delivery via water systems.”

“Nanoparticles Functionalized with Venom-Derived Peptides and Toxins for Pharmaceutical Applications,” 2020, https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31223083/ Quote: “Examples of isolated venom peptides and crude animal venoms that have been encapsulated and formulated with different types of nanomaterials with promising results are increasingly reported.

Dr. Ardis has taught us a lot about Remdesivir. Let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater.”

This is something that people promoting false narratives never agree to…My colleagues who have seen the videos believe some parts (similarity with snake venom), but not others (poison spread through the water)… I was amazed at the fortune cookie story at the end of the Stew Peters interview. That just seems too hard to believe. But I don’t think Bryan would lie about it either. That part was really hard to believe, but apparently true… The Bing Liu murder is real. I’m not buying the lover’s quarrel story promoted by the police because nobody knew he had a girlfriend. More on this in another substack… Do I think Dr. Ardis has “solved” it and all the pieces fit together? No, but I’m willing and open to being convinced… Do I think the virus is related to snake venom? Yes, we’ve been talking about that for over a month internally. I don’t think this part is controversial. Dr. Tau Braun was discussing the similarities to snake venom in late 2020…Is Ardis on a hit list? Probably. What I know is that there is credible evidence that Ardis is being targeted. I heard that assertion directly from a top government official.”

Compounds that Protect Against Snake Venom Poisoning, ie COVID-19

  • Vitamin C,
  • Zinc,
  • Hydroxychloroquine,
  • N.A.C.,
  • Ivermectin,
  • Quercetin,
  • Copper
  • Nicotine gum or patch (according to Dr. Ardis),
  • Coricosteroids
  • Budesonide (Nebulized)
  • homeopathic remedies
  • other natural herbs
  • Bentonite Clay

There’s Still Power in the Blood of the LAMB

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

There is a powerful hymn that sings, “What can wash away my sins? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus”. No truer words were spoken. For Jesus came as the Lamb of God to take away the sins of the world, the Lamb who was slain before the foundation of the world. And His shed blood makes those who believe in Jesus new creations in Christ. Through the blood of the Lamb sin loses its power, for the power of the blood of Christ is greater by far. The serpent’s plan in the garden to infect the world with its toxic poison, was destroyed through the antibody properties of the blood. 

Incredibly enough, the literal blood of literal sheep is used to create antivenom. This is because sheep’s blood is resistant to snakebite poison. They are immune to it. Thus, what some have done is use the sheep’s antibodies to create a serum for others who do not have those antibodies.  https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/neuroscience/antivenom

In effect, Jesus did that for us. He is our Lamb who laid down His life so that we can have life more abundantly – and that we might be sin and snake venom free!

But, the enemy is still trying to bite us and defeat God’s plan. And as before, his goal is to corrupt us via our genetics thus rendering us unredeemable. He did this via fallen angel activity before the flood, when the sons of God (angelic beings) married the daughter’s of men and had hybrid children through them called the nephilim (Genesis 6). This is why the entire world had to be wiped out, including the animals, and yet Noah was the only one “perfect in all his generations”. This perfection was in his genetic code. In other words, the image of God remained in Noah while all others on the earth had corrupted that image (“Nephilim, Fallen Angels, Aliens and the Mark of the Beast,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e8q1Cxlwtb8). During the Great Tribulation/Jacob’s Trouble, the mark of the beast will corrupt mankind’s DNA yet again. But, the devil is jumping the gun right now by attempting to corrupt Christians before the rapture. This he is doing through Covid-19, Remdesivir, and the vaccines.

As has been revealed over and over again by a multitude of medical professional sources, the vaccine is not really a vaccine. But there is more to it than that. Way more. And the devil that old serpent has his serpent footprints- or shall I say slither prints- all over it! 

Below I have listed 4 links. The first three are composed of a lengthy interview in which Dr Ardis goes step by step through his detailed research that led him to his conclusion that COVID-19 is not a virus, Remdesivir is not a medicine, and the mRNA vaccine is not a vaccine. Though many of us know this by now, what is not known is what they really are. He will disclose that all three are toxic poison – specifically, venom from at least 2 snakes. Dr Ardis documents his findings as well as what supplements and treatments repel snake venom poisoning. 

Sound too crazy? Please reflect prayerfully on Dr. Ardis’ findings. Please, just be aware. Because, really, it’s actually not that far fetched. It’s all interconnected, and when you think about the devil that old serpent, it makes perfect sense. He’s wanted to corrupt God’s image in us from the beginning, and at this point in history is seeking to do so through the corruption of our DNA – even Christians. And why not do so with viper venom?

This is why so many are getting blood clots and others neurological damage and some are suddenly dropping dead. This is what certain types of snake poisoning does in the body – like the specific types spoken of by Dr. Ardis in the videos below.

And so the Satanic, Luciferian plot thickens!

But let us also remember several very important things. The enemy is only able to do what he’s doing because God has okayed it, and He has okayed it because of grave evil that is unrepented of worldwide (Leviticus 26, Deuteronomy 28, Isaiah 24). Nations have rejected God, and God’s time clock has come to the final seconds of this present age. Indeed, we are very much at the end of the age that Jesus addressed in Matthew 24. Furthermore, many including Christians have willingly been vaccinated and/or taken or said yes to a loved one being “medicated” by Remdesivir. They have willing trusted science and have been deceived. They have not knowingly done these things. There is a difference. But, there still can be consequences, including death. But, most importantly, let’s remember that Jesus’ blood has never lost it’s power. It still covers and cleanses and makes us whole. There is still power in the antivenom blood of the Lamb! 

Even so, let us remember what Jesus said in Luke 16, “And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name they shall cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” 

The Apostle Paul lived this out in Acts 28 when on the Isle of Malta he was bitten by a viper. Though everyone expected him to drop dead suddenly, Paul just shook the snake off into the fire, and many came to salvation in Jesus and were healed of many diseases.

As the enemy’s plan of mass genocide and a new, one world order marches forward, God’s rapture and Revelation plan will prevail. Thus, I call on all Christians who have been deceived with this “plandemic” and “science” and are now startled and rudely awakened by all this, please repent. Please seek the Lord. It is imperative. The time is short. Even if serpent’s venom is coursing through your veins right now and you feel overwhelmed and filled with remorse, remember there is still antivenom power in the blood of the Lamb!

For other Christians who have not been deceived, stay alert and remain on your guard. The darkness is growing, the evil is spreading, the plot thickens, the new world order of the Beast is forming and taking shape, and this age is coming to a speedy – even “warp speed”- conclusion. Fear not! Keep looking up! Jesus is coming soon! Let’s be ready!

Remaining vigilant,

Down From His Glory

Tags

, , ,

I do not think we on earth will ever fully grasp the awesome grandeur of our God. All too often we act far too familiar with Him by calling Him our friend, as well as dismissing the gravity of our sin (whatever its type) weighed against the enormity of His holiness. Jesus to us in the western world seems to have become a soft, “warm and fuzzy” sort of man, who is all about social justice and being non-judgmental. It is assumed that the God of the Old Testament was holy and harsh, but the God of the New Testament is permissive and meek and mild. And the two do not meet in the middle. However, in so believing, we miss the true power and nature of who Jesus was/is and what Jesus did when He as eternal God laid aside His glory and put on human flesh for us.

To even begin to catch a glimpse of the immense nature of what He did, let’s first take a look at two Old Testament passages of God’s glory.

4Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. 5Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures…22The likeness of the firmament above the heads of the living creatures was like the color of an awesome crystal, stretched out over their heads26And above the firmament over their heads was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne was a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it. 27Also from the appearance of His waist and upward I saw, as it were, the color of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it; and from the appearance of His waist and downward I saw, as it were, the appearance of fire with brightness all around. 28Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. So when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard a voice of One speaking.” (Ezekiel 1:4-5, 22, 26-28)

2Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. 3And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. 4Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads. 5And from the throne proceeded lightnings, thunderings, and voices. Seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.6Before the throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back. 7The first living creature was like a lion, the second living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle. 8The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying:

“Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God Almighty,
Who was and is and is to come!”” (Revelation 4:2-8)

This is Jesus’ home. This is the realm from which He came to earth. And this very glory belonged to Him as well, as it states in John 1, “1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4In Him was life, and the life was the light of men…10He was in the world, and the world was made through Him…” Colossians 1:16-17 in agreement states, “16For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.” And to wrap this all together in a nice bow, Jesus prays in John 17, “5And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.”

Thus, Jesus shares such glory with the majesty and splendor of the God enthroned in Ezekiel and Revelation (as well as Isaiah 6 that was not quoted here). He is the One who measures the sky with His hands and holds the oceans in His hands (Isaiah 40:12), the One who sends the snow and the hail (Job 37), who rides the whirlwind (Nehemiah 1), and commands the stormy winds (Psalm 147) and calms the stormy sea (Psalm 107). This is our Jesus. This is the same Jesus who descended and took on human flesh, as Philippians 2 so powerfully presents when it says,”5Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.”

Think about that passage. He was in the “form” of God. This means that He was forever in the visible image/shape of God continuously, even while here, for the word is a present participle which implies continuous action. Thus the image of God did not cease while He here. Nevertheless, while He remained in the image of God continuously, He did not consider His equality with God something to be held onto tightly. In other words, He did not cling to His heavenly role, but rather, descended and made Himself of no reputation, which means that He divested Himself of His rightful dignity. He did not cling to His rights as an equal with God. Instead, He actively took upon Himself the essence of a slave. Even as He was in the visible shape of God, He also came in the visible shape of a slave. He had not existed as a human before, but became a human in every sense of the word. And not just any human but that of a humble servant. No one did this to Him. He brought Himself low, like a king in ancient times who would set aside His royal robes and put on beggar’s clothes for a brief period of time. Even so, Christ clothed Himself in a human body as a slave, and was obedient to the point of death on the shameful cross. Indeed, as Hebrews 12 so aptly says Jesus endured the cross, despising the shame because of the joy that was set before Him.

Jesus in all of His grandeur and majesty, robed in righteousness and splendor, surrounded by holy angels, a sea of glass before Him, majestic music permeating the atmosphere, and worshipful calls of “holy, holy, holy” echoing into eternity, laid aside His regal robes and all the beauties of heaven to come down here…for us.

As the old hymn goes,

“The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,
And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,
And pardoned from his sin.

Refrain:
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure—
The saints’ and angels’ song.

When hoary time shall pass away,
And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
When men who here refuse to pray,
On rocks and hills and mountains call,
God’s love so sure, shall still endure,
All measureless and strong;
Redeeming grace to Adam’s race—
The saints’ and angels’ song.

Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.”

As we reflect on Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection and as we reread the Gospel story of Jesus and His love, let us remember the height from which Jesus came in order to die on our behalf that He might lead captivity captive (Ephesians 4:8), defeat and shame the principalities and powers of darkness (Colossians 2:15), fulfill the law and the prophets (Matthew 5:17-20) and then nail the oppressive law to the cross (Colossians 2:14), “to preach good tidings to the poor . . . heal the brokenhearted . . . proclaim liberty to the captives . . . opening of the prison to those who are bound . . . to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD…” (Isaiah 61). And that year is still now. Jesus’ blood still atones, and he whom the Son has set free is still free indeed!

And let us not forget what the angels said in Acts 1:11 as Jesus ascended into heaven and disappeared in the clouds of God’s throne, “…this same Jesus which is taken up from you into heaven shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.” Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus! The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come!”

Blessings in Christ,

Do Not Be Deceived: An Angel of Light

May your hearts be open to what the Spirit of God would say to you through this article, and the resources that follow).

Bethel of the Bible

The Bible recounts that a place by the name of Bethel, meaning “house of God”, had been incredibly special and important. It was the place of Abraham’s communion with God (Genesis 12:8), the location of the heavenly staircase upon which Jacob perceived angels ascending and descending (Genesis 28:10, 19), where the Israelites went to seek God’s council in troubled times (Judges 20:18 Judges 20:31; 21:2), where the ark of the Covenant was protected by Phinehas (Judges 20:26-28), and was one of the places where the prophet Samuel judged the people (1 Samuel 7:16). It was a holy place. It was a blessed place.

But Bethel did not remain pure and holy, for it fell head over heals into idolatry when Jeroboam set up a golden calf in its midst (1 Kings 12:28-13:1) and told Israel that it was their god. And thus the prophet Hosea (Hosea 4:15, 5:8, 10:5, 8) calls it Beth-aven, “house of idols.” No longer was it a place where God dwelt and met with His people. Rather, it became a place wherein evil was welcomed with open arms, the exciting and exotic rites of Occultism were practiced openly, and where the people sought the aide of any god but God while not at all discerning the difference.

In Acts 16:16-24 a story is recounted of Paul, Silas, Luke and other Christians who were being closely and daily followed around by a young woman who was declaring, “These men are servants of the Most High God which show unto us the way of salvation” (vs 17).

Now, what is wrong with this statement? Sounds inspired, doesn’t it? It appears completely sound in doctrine, doesn’t it? So, why then is Paul troubled and thoroughly fatigued (1278) by her? I mean, wasn’t what she was saying making the people listen to Paul? Wasn’t it drawing them to Jesus?

The Spirit of Python

No. She was possessed by the spirit of puthon. Puthon sometimes called Python, was a serpent that the Greco-Roman god Apollo was said to have slain, but then manifested at a place called Delphi through a young woman for the purpose of prophesying. (https://ehistory.osu.edu/articles/oracle-delphi) And though the instruction was more often than not cryptic and vague, the oracle at Delphi was still considered to be so accurate that commoners and influential people alike from all around would seek to divine their future through her. But puthon was not of God. Puthon was demonic.

In other words, it was not what the young woman said that was wrong. The words she spoke were not wrong. Please, notice that. The average listener would not hear anything amiss. But, the spirit behind the prophetic words was evil, and Paul through discernment, knew this. The spirit wanted to attach itself to the Christian message and become revered by the Christian ministers and all listening, in order to gain the trust of believers and to attain greater prestige. The Gospel was forcefully advancing, and many were coming to Christ, and the spirit of Python wanted to be apart of it in order to draw attention to itself and steal Christ’s glory.

This Present Darkness

It is no different today. For, there is a deep darkness that has descended over the modern day house of God worldwide. The tares are growing up prolifically among the ears of wheat, and great deception is pervading with increasing energy and perseverance. There is a hybridization taking place, a mixing and mingling of Christianity until little of Christ is left except a shell void of the life that once dwelt there. Though many may nod knowingly regarding this apostasy, very few actually regard the specifics and far reaching, tentacled, many headed hydra that has overtaken the Church. A spiritual genetic manipulation has and is in effect taking place, and most are too apathetic or mesmerized or sleepy to notice or care.

But, I must ask, is it at any time acceptable for Christians to use tarot cards or Ouija boards? What about practicing necromancy or divination or any other type of Occultism? Is any of that blessed by God at any time or under any other name? How about being filled with “drunken glory” exemplified by staggering and slurred speech? Would you be comfortable with the belief that there are “precious” treasures of New Age mysticism that we as Christians must reclaim and fully utilize? What about the teaching that Jesus was completely emptied of His godhood while here and thus was only a man? What about the teaching that Jesus was the first one to be born again?

Deception

Our God is a holy God, and He commands that we are to be holy as He is holy (1 Peter 1:16). And this holiness is to pervade every aspect and facet of our daily lives, from what we watch, what we think about, what we listen to, what entertains us, what and who motivates us, and what type of teaching and teacher we heed. Indeed, even as the saying goes “garbage in, garbage out”, so it is with the spiritual food we receive, whether deliberately or inadvertently. That which we take into our spirits, does eventually produce fruit of some kind – good or bad depending on what type of spiritual food we ingest.

We so quickly and easily say that we have the Holy Spirit and that He will not allow us to go astray. And yes, as Christians we do have the Holy Spirit who will lead us into all truth – if we are abiding in His word (John 16:13). For indeed, we are still sheep, and we can still be “drawn away” by the desires (James 1:14) of our hearts that are deceitful above all else (Jeremiah 17:9). We are still called on by the Savior to be diligent and of a sound mind. Thus, James implores his Christian readers saying, “do not be deceived” (James 1:16). For as Peter states in 2 Peter 2, “1But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. 2And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.”

Deception has been around since the snake in the garden, but it grew thick and fast after Jesus’ resurrection and the commencement of the Church age. This deception has not been outside of the Church, but inside. That is why Peter, Paul, John, James, and others in Scripture warned believers to beware and be on guard constantly. Even Matthew 24:1 relates, “3Now as He [Jesus] sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”4And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you…” Again, this is addressed to believers. This is addressed to us.

The Problem of Cognitive Dissonance

Most if not all who read what I’ve just stated above will be nodding their heads quickly in agreement to such a general statement. But, the moment that one gets specific and begins to point out who or what is false and why, people start to stiffen, resist, and disagree. Why? We get uncomfortable as soon as the information hits too close to home, in other words, touches on a ministry or minister that we like. That is the nature of each of our hearts. That is the nature of deception. And that is precisely how Satan preys upon Christians.

Here’s the deal. Do you want the truth? Do you want it even at the expense of losing names and faces that you have looked up to and trusted? Do you want the truth even at the expense of realizing that you were fooled by them and their smooth words? Do you want the truth more than signs and wonders? Do you?

Deception in Plain Sight

Well, there is a specific church, a specific organization, a specific movement, a specific ministry, a specific man that is propagating a now widespread deception in the Church. Yes, they truly do believe that they are “reclaiming” Hindu/New Age teachings as if they at first belonged to Christianity, and are teaching and inspiring other Christians to do so too. This includes the use of Ouija Boards aptly renamed Angel Boards, Tarot Cards aptly renamed Destiny Cards (and now there are Destiny Pants too), Necromancy renamed grave soaking/sucking/mantle grabbing, and Eastern Meditation practices now aptly renamed Contemplative Prayer or Soaking Prayer which leads to Kundalini enlightenment, and people are staggering and stammering about in a so-called “drunken glory”. But of course they do not call it Kundalini (the nine headed serpent power/wisdom of the Hinduism of India, https://icrcanada.org/learn/historicalbasis/kundaliniindia). Rather, they call it the Holy Spirit. And the manifestations of this Kundalini are as follows: “Unholy laughing, uncontrollable laughing, involuntary falling, jerking, roaring, barking, hissing, crying, body contortions, shaking, muscle twitches, spasms, postures or moving one’s body in unusual ways, drunkenness,” (“Lindsey Davis’ Heart Cry for Bethel’s Correction,” pg 29, https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jTWy8zJMf4X13maBE2SXRLT2-ACM7MCf/view). And then there is the walk through the “fire tunnel”, wherein Kundalini is imparted and people begin to thrash about like the demon possessed/oppressed because they are, but they believe it to be an encounter with God.

On top of this, the one propagating the above is also a teacher of false doctrine regarding Jesus, for it is taught that Jesus while here was only a man and was completely emptied of His divinity/godhood, and that Jesus was the first one born again. The reasoning presented is that if Jesus had not been merely a man, then we as humans could not hope to do the miracles that he did. But, because Jesus was only a man then we can do what he did. One of those spiritual manifestations is that of prophecy, only one does not need to be 100% accurate. And in this organization’s school of ministry (which is increasingly popular), they will not allow any student to graduate until they have prophesied three times incorrectly.

Does this even sound Christian or doctrinally accurate? What good can come from this?

In spite of these horrors, this organization and its founder are highly venerated among charismatic Christians, and big name Christian leaders visit his church for conferences, worship gatherings and the like. This individual is viewed as a respected leader among Pentecostals and charismatics, and is even included on the Global Council leadership team of Empowered21. Empowered21 states that it “is a global movement which aims to…Promote the empowerment of the Holy Spirit on all believers and the empowerment of the generations to serve God…The vision is for everyone on Earth to have an authentic encounter with Jesus Christ through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit… by Pentecost 2033”. (https://digitalshowcase.oru.edu/e21archive/; https://empowered21.com/about/; https://empowered21.com/about/global-leaders/)

First of all there is nothing wrong with this vision. I myself am Pentecostal. There, the cat’s out of the bag on that one! But, at this point it is imperative that you know this. I am not merely charismatic. I am Pentecostal. I believe that the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2 began then and continues today, and that the manifestation of the Holy Spirit as explained by Paul in Romans 12 and 1 Corinthians 12-14 are still for the edification of the Church today. Thus, the noble goals of Empowered21 are good.

But, the goats have mixed in with the sheep, the tares with the wheat. This man is a counterfeit, and is apart of a much larger, approved of movement that is polluting the Body of Christ with lies garbed in prophetic words, dreams and visions and decorated with flashy promises of good to come and hit or mostly miss emotionally charged prophetic utterances. The deception of this group is far-reaching and deeply entrenched in the Church, poisoning it from the inside out. For, even if it tastes good, looks good, and smells good, it is still poison.

Exposed

The movement is the New Apostolic Reformation, also referred to as the acroym NAR.

The man’s name is Bill Johnson, and his church’s name is Bethel, also called Bethel Redding or Bethel Church Redding.

Much can be found online regarding Bill Johnson, his links with the NAR, the Toronto Blessing (so-called), Rick Joyner and other NAR apostolic leadership, the Three Rivers/Latter Rain/Dominionism/Manifest Sons of God/Seven Mountains Mandate beliefs, etc., but this article is not for the purpose of summarizing these nor the heresy of this movement. Rather, it is to point out a very overlooked yet overwhelmingly prevalent fact. Jesus stated in Matthew 7:18, “A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.” There is something that springs from the source of this heretical church and movement, something that grows from its roots, and that is inseparable from this corrupt Bethel tree.

Corrupt Fruit

What is this corrupt fruit of Bethel church in Redding, California? Bethel Music and Jesus Culture.

How can such incredible music and such moving lyrics come from such a polluted, cult-like church? How can they sound so Christian, when they are led by the guru-like teaching of Bill Johnson who propagates a false doctrine and advocates Occult and New Age practices?

Lucifer: Worship Leader

Let’s remember this very important fact: Lucifer was a worship leader in heaven. In Ezekiel 28:13 he is said to have been made with timbrels and pipes, and in Isaiah 14:11 it goes on to say that the sound of his stringed instruments and music were silenced in the day he was taken down to Sheol. Thus, it is said that Lucifer was made up of all three types of musical instruments that we use today (percussion, wind, and strings).

But one day, he polluted his sanctuaries by the iniquity of his “trading”. This “trading” or “merchandizing” that Lucifer did, according to Pastor Zev Porat, a Messianic rabbi whose first language is Hebrew, was actually stealthily and secretly keeping back part of what rightfully belonged to God – namely His worship – while making it look like all of the worship had been given to God. (“Satan’s Days are Numbered – Messianic Rabbi Zev Porat Teaches,” November 5, 2021, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNs2adgR4gc).

Really, this is exactly like what Ananias and Sapphira did in Acts 5. They covertly embezzled (nosphizo, 3557), deceptively held something back when they said they given all of it to God. And, does the spirit of this not align with Matthew 4 when it says, “8Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.””

Would Satan, who led in worship in heaven not also be well-versed in what worship ought to sound like, be worded like, even feel like? Wouldn’t he then who is a deceiver also be very excellent at mixing truth with a subtle lie, mingled with powerful music that stirs the soul so that one overlooks the error, lets down their guard, and sings on with the mesmerizing melody? Is Lucifer not adept at appearing as an angel of light? (2 Corinthians 11:14).

Are you shaking your head in disbelief? Are you underestimating the devil, that ancient serpent (Revelation 12:9)?

Now…back to Bethel.

Bethel Music

Bethel church, filled with error and heresy, a church endorsing Occult practices, advocating New Age manifestations, a church apart of the New Apostolic Reformation which calls their leadership super apostles and prophets who also back false prophets and false teachers including Bill Johnson, and who advocate all unfiltered, untested supernatural signs as being from God, all while calling themselves Christian, has now given birth to a music revolution.

“From 2009 to 2013, Bethel Music rapidly grew from being a relatively small local church music ministry to becoming a fully-fledged record label and publishing company, featuring songwriters and worship leaders based out of Bethel Church in Redding, California” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bethel_Music). “Bethel Music is an American record label and publishing company associated with Bethel Church, led by Bill Johnson’s son Brian Johnson. Its music was among the most played contemporary worship music in American churches in 2019 and its albums have reached the BillBoard 200 multiple times. Bethel Music has many songs with tens of millions of views on Youtube, and two with over 100 million views as of 2019. The live performances of its songs are characterized by extended duration with much repetition and emotion.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bethel_Church_(Redding%2C_California) And furthermore, they have mixed and mingled with many well-meaning, godly worship teams worldwide, rubbing shoulders with and sharing platforms and songs, thus presenting themselves as legitimately Christian and legitimately inspired.

Not Just Music

Some may say, it’s just a song. It’s just music. The words sound okay. I feel good when I sing it. It feels like the Holy Spirit to me. It’s not teaching doctrine.

In Acts 17:11 the Berean group of people were praised for being noble minded in their daily research of Scripture to see if what Paul said was true. First of all, think about that. The Apostle Paul was scrutinized. The man of God who was Holy Spirit inspired, had his words investigated by the Bereans to make sure that what he was saying was true. It’s not that they were suspicious of him. They actually really believed and wanted to believe what he said. But, they wanted the whole truth and nothing but the truth more than anything else.

If they did this to trustworthy, Spirit-inspired, Apostle Paul, how much more ought we to do this when it comes to the worship leading and instruction of fallible teachers and worship leaders.

Furthermore, worship songs are not just songs. In Colossians 3:16 we read, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” It is clear from this passage that songs teach the Church. They give instruction. They present doctrine in poetic stanzas, set to stirring music. Songs are not just songs. Music is not just music. They sculpt us, mold us, make us, warn us, reinforce us, and inspire us.

This being the case, it is imperative to know what a song is communicating, who the human author is, and what spirit is behind it.

Python: The spirit behind the music

The spirit behind Bethel church is a false Holy Spirit. The Jesus of Bethel church is a very human Jesus who was not divine while on earth, was the first one born again, and who taught all people how to become christs on earth. Demonic manifestations are attributed to the Holy Spirit, and lying signs and wonders entrance the masses (angel feathers, gold dust, gem stones, fire tunnels, etc.).

The authors of Bethel worship music and Jesus Culture are attenders of this very same Bethel church, and are disciples of Bill Johnson and followers of the Bethel Jesus, and their music and lyrics flow from this same spirit and influence – even an angel of light.

And so we come back to the spirit of Python and the oracle at Delphi who called out that Paul and his Christian companions were men of God, declaring the way of salvation. She was already considered prophetic. Her utterances were revered. And, her words regarding the apostles were accurate. But, the spirit behind the words was demonic. The spirit of Python was at work seeking to deceive everyone into believing that he and the Holy Spirit were one and the same, that he was on the same team as Christians. Python wanted to blur the lines, to be accepted by Christians and all religions, and thus to steal God’s glory for himself.

But, God does not share His glory (Isaiah 42:8). God does not like mixtures (Exodus 34:12-16; Leviticus 19:19; Numbers 25; Ezra 9:12; Deuteronomy Deuteronomy 7:3-4; 22:9-11; Ezra 10; Nehemiah 10:28-30, 13:23-27). God does not like compromise. God does not like the blurring of very clear lines that have been drawn in the sand. Thus, God is exposing this spirit of deceptive divination yet again, forthe spirit of the NAR prophetic movement and Bethel church Redding and Bethel music is nothing more than the spirit of Python drawing attention to itself, the seething of Lucifer stealing worship from God.

Are we being tested?

While the Lord does not tempt us to sin, could He possibly be constructively testing us? As it says in Exodus 13, 1“If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams, and he gives you a sign or a wonder, 2and the sign or the wonder comes to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods’—which you have not known—‘and let us serve them,’ 3you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams, for the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.” In other words, it sounded right, but, the spirit behind it was evil. Discerning is not always cut and dry. And believe it or not, God allowed for this in order to test the quality of the hearts of His people, like fire tests metal not for the sake of destruction but to temper it.

The line drawn in the sand by Moses thousands of years ago at the foot of Mount Horeb is still in the sand before us today, and his words still echo loudly and clearly above the beat of drums and strum of guitars saying, “Who is on the Lord’s side? Let him come to me” (Exodus 32:26).

Good fruit cannot come from a bad tree, and a bad fruit cannot come from a good tree. Can we trust anything that comes out of the serpent-inspired rot of Bethel Church in Redding, California or even the NAR movement?

Dealing with Those Steeped in Deception

Now, regarding those more deeply deceived by the entrancing teaching and feel-good prophecies of the NAR and who are lulled by the spell of Bethel, remember the words of the Apostle Paul in 2 Timothy 4, “1 I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of His appearing and His kingdom: 2 Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and encourage with every form of patient instruction. 3 For the time will come when men will not tolerate sound doctrine, but with itching ears they will gather around themselves teachers to suit their own desires. 4 So they will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.” And finally, the epistle of Jude says, “17But you, beloved, remember what was foretold by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ 18when they said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow after their own ungodly desires.” 19These are the ones who cause divisions, who are worldly and devoid of the Spirit. 20But you, beloved, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 21keep yourselves in the love of God as you await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you eternal life. 22And indeed, have mercy on those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them from the fire; and to still others show mercy tempered with fear, hating even the clothing stained by the flesh.

There are those who have left Bethel and the NAR. There are those who truly loved Christ and His word more than all else, and eventually they saw through the facade. So, please do not give up on praying for those ensnared right now. The Holy Spirit is still working. More will make their exodus. As Jesus said, ““If you continue in My word, you are truly My disciples. 32Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”” (John 8:32)

O The Deep, Deep Love of Jesus

But then, what do we do with seemingly sincere, evangelistically minded people like Sean Feucht (who attended Bethel and also ministered there in the past) and Mario Murillo (who is in thick with the NAR)? Neither of them are false prophets, the gospel they preach is Biblically sound, and many are coming to Jesus through their outreaches. However, they do respect and work alongside of false prophets and false teachers and questionable worship leaders. And this goes for Pastor Louie Giglio, worship pastor Kristian Stanfill, singer Keri Jobe, Evangelist Perry Stone, worship leader/song writer Darlene Zschech, the Daystar television network and the Lamb family (who have brought great truth to many concerning the vaccine etc) and others who also lend credence to Bethel. These are brothers and sisters in Christ have obviously been deceived into believing that Bethel and the NAR is genuinely and unquestionably Christian. After all, Bethel and the NAR sing to Jesus; they pray to Jesus; they seem close to God because they have spiritual manifestations; they have visions and dreams and trips to heaven and have eavesdropped on important conversations of God on His throne.

Speaking of Christians who have not yet seen through the “glory cloud” smoke screen of Bethel and the glitz and glamor of dreams of heaven and lying signs and wonders of the NAR, these are still our fellow Christians, and God loves them immensely. Let us remember that just because we can see through the flashy facade, there is something else in our life that we either at one time could not see through but now do, or that we even now are deceived about. How many times have I felt I was immune and years go by, and then one day I see. And when I see, my heart is pierced through with the grievous thought that I had thought I was so right, when in reality, I was so terribly wrong. This does not excuse someone else’s deception. But, it ought to change our attitude and approach of them regarding that deception.

Second Timothy 2:24-25 clearly explains concerning the correction of fellow Christians that “24…a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, 25in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, 26and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.”

O think of God’s great patience in teaching and instructing us! O how gentle He is with each of us, so adept at correcting and disciplining the ones He loves. O how much Jesus loves us! As the voice of Samuel T. Francis’ heartfelt hymn still resounds and reaches the depths of hearts today with the words,

“O the deep, deep love of Jesus, spread His praise from shore to shore! How He loveth, ever loveth, changeth never, nevermore!How He watches o’er His loved ones, died to call them all His own;
How for them He intercedeth, watcheth o’er them from the throne!” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hzYKovRsJ8)

Now What?

This being said, what do we practically do regarding these deceived fellow Christians? Do we follow their ministry? Do we include their songs in our worship lineup in church? Do we go to their conferences, attend their churches, or buy their books and CDs?

Just before the book of Revelation is released upon the world, Jesus inspects each of His seven churches. First of all, each of them is Christian. Each of them is a Church. Each of them is beloved of Christ, so much so that He has John pen the letters to them. After all, He disciplines those whom He loves (Hebrews 12). But, of the seven only 2 are pure, and 5 are called to repent. Repent of what? Imperfect works. What does this mean? They all compromised, and were found wanting. And before the full Revelation of Christ, Jesus calls His churches away from their compromise, away from their mixture, and to repentance.

A modern example of a Christian compromising is that of Rick Warren joining the purity of the Gospel with Islam when he incorrectly asserts and unashamedly states that we serve the same God, even calling Jesus by the Koran name of Isa. Muslims to him are brothers and sisters, and are not to be treated otherwise. (https://www.online-ministries.org/rick-warren-to-muslims-the-god-of-the-bible-and-allah-are-the-same-not/; https://www.wnd.com/2012/02/rick-warren-builds-bridge-to-muslims/; https://beforeitsnews.com/religion/2013/11/rick-warrens-chrislam-becomes-one-of-the-fastest-growing-religions-in-america-videos-2458484.html)

Another example is that of the Christian Dallas Jenkins, the main writer of the show “The Chosen”, who not only works alongside Mormons but also calls them his brothers and sisters. He fellowships with them, hangs out with them, and defends them. (https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2022/03/17/do-not-be-deceived-the-chosen/)

Even so, the Passion Band along with the Passion City Church, Daystar television, Hillsong, and a host of other well-known names have come alongside Bethel, calling them brother and sisters in Christ, when in reality Bethel’s leadership follows another Jesus — just like Muslims and Mormons.

Some may rightly assert that God is using these bands and evangelists and pastors for His glory anyway. True. But, let us also remember that God used Judas Iscariot, Balaam and Pharaoh and the devil. Interestingly enough Paul said in Philippians 1, “15Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife, and some also from goodwill: 16 The former preach Christ from selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my chains; 17 but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel. 18 What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is preached; and in this I rejoice, yes, and will rejoice.”

These well-meaning Christians are not who Paul is referring to, nor are they evil. I do not mean to even slightly imply this. Rather, what I do mean is that God so often takes what the enemy means for evil and turns it for good. But that truth does not give any Christian license nor a legitimate excuse to be deceived.

These brothers like Mario Murillo and Sean Feucht appear to be in fellowship with those who serve another Jesus — a New Age, feel good, “drunken glory,” “grave sucking”, mere man who needed to be born again, spouting false prophecies and boasting about trips to heaven and visions and dreams kind of Jesus. It doesn’t look good.

Is this any different than Jenkins’ inability to discern the false Jesus of the Mormons? Is this any different than Warren’s inability to discern the false Jesus of the Muslims?

Second Corinthians 6 says it best, “14Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:

“I will dwell in them
And walk among them.
I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.”

17Therefore “Come out from among them
And be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean,
And I will receive you.”
18“I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be My sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty.””

Indeed, are we not to “21Test all things; hold fast what is good. 22Abstain from every form of evil,” (1 Thessalonians 5)? Need anything more be said?

Grievous

I am grieved beyond words over all of this. I do not revel in revealing any of this. My heart is broken. I hate deception and the unholiness and division that it causes. I am sickened that is tainting large numbers of churches and Christians. I especially am deeply troubled over those who are not troubled over this information, but instead defiantly reject the truth. It seems that the knowledge of good and evil is a terribly weighty burden.

Knowing the Genuine

Furthermore, I am not approaching this from the vantage point of someone who is against the manifestations of the Holy Spirit. I grew up a Pentecostal and have experienced the Biblical manifestations from a young age. It is precisely this knowledge and experience of the genuine that has enabled me to recognize the counterfeit. For not everything supernatural is of God.

Conclusion

In conclusion, let us remember the alarming words of Jesus that “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:22-23). Please note the word, “many”. These “many” are people who considered themselves Christians. These are people who thought they were operating in the power of the Holy Spirit. And, they were “many”. This word in the Greek polys (4183) means that this is a multitude. This is not a handful of well-meaning people. Rather, this is an exorbitant amount, a very and extremely large number, for the word “emphasizes the quantity involved” (https://biblehub.com/greek/4183.htm).

Please, please understand how important it is to be discerning. After all, if countless numbers who performed and are performing wonders and speaking countless prophetic utterances can be so deceived, couldn’t any of us be too?

This message is beyond humbling, and is a piercing warning to those who will heed it.

It is time, body of Christ, to be grieved like Paul and to discern that the angel of light is at work right now. It is time to quit abiding unholiness of any kind in God’s house. It is time to quit legitimizing it by accepting it as a new normal, even as Christian when it is not. It is time to quit pampering Python and his need to usurp what is God’s. It is time to stop singing along to the mesmerizing pied piper of our day. It is time to be wearied to the point of complete fatigue by it all, and to turn and rebuke it. In a day of hybrids, syncretism, ecumenism, and prolific deception, it is time to rally on the Lord’s side of pure spiritual genetics, to be like zealous Nehemiah as we keep our house of God, even our Bethel, holy and undefiled.

Jesus is coming soon! It is time to be ready!

Ever vigilant,

Outline, Notes and Quotes from Many Sources

Bill Johnson and Bethel Church (in General)

Bill Johnson is a 5th generation pastor of Bethel Church in Redding, California. Bethel Church was established in 1952, and became affiliated with the Assemblies of God in 1954. Bill Johnson’s father Earl Johnson had been the pastor just prior to Bill.

In 1995 just before Bill became a part of the pastoral staff of Bethel Church, he attended the Toronto Blessing which was one year into its “holy laughter” movement started by the visit of Randy Clark (who was influenced by Rodney Howard-Browne). In 1996 Bill Johnson became head pastor of Bethel church in Redding, California, and though church leadership unanimously agreed with Bill Johnson’s vision for Bethel, upwards to 2000 members did not and left.

Soon thereafter, they began the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry under the leadership of Chris Vallatton. And though Johnson has tried to distance himself from the NAR, even openly denying being apart of any such thing, rosters of NAR guest speakers at Bethel, pictures of NAR apostles with Johnson gathered for special NAR ceremonies, quotes, publications, and other evidence speak louder than his words. He is very much apart of the New Apostolic Reformation, and in complete agreement with their beliefs of Dominionism, Seven Mountains Mandate, Manifest Sons of God, and so forth based on his own spoken and written words.

“The New Apostolic Reformation,” https://bereanresearch.org/dominionism-nar/

Quote:…NAR, the New Apostolic Reformation. … It is like Grape Nuts – it’s not grapes and it’s not nuts. It’s like Christian Science – it’s not Christian and it’s not scientific. Well, the New Apostolic Reformation isn’t new, it isn’t apostolic, and it isn’t a reformation. But it is a rapidly expanding movement being generated by some of the same old troubling false teachers and false leaders that have been around in Charismania for decades, always dishonoring the Holy Spirit, always dishonoring the Scripture, always claiming miracle signs, wonders, visions, dreams. ~ John MacArthur

“New Apostolic Reformation,” https://bewatchful.org/new-apostolic-reformation/

Quote: “This term was first used by C. Peter Wagner. According to him, the roles of apostles and prophets, which had been lost after the first century, were restored in 2001.”

Among their core beliefs are of the seven mountains mandate, extra biblical revelations that do not have to align with the word of God, and that of Dominionism to name a few.

Quote: ““Dominionism“: when Jesus came to earth, he brought down the kingdom of heaven with Him and is waiting for Christians to take control (again) over the world, snatching it from Satan’s hands. They have to bring peace and prosperity to the world; only then will Jesus come to be crowned”

“Bethel Church (Redding, California),” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bethel_Church_(Redding,_California)

Quote: “The NAR is an evangelical movement that seeks to take over “seven mountains of culture”, including business, government, and media, to prompt the return of Jesus. [13]

This is a very serious charge, and I’m very serious when I make it.””

*Jesus was only a man

“What Are Bill Johnson’s Heresies?” https://pulpitandpen.org/2016/11/14/what-are-bill-johnsons-heresies/

– When here Jesus was only fully human, and was completely emptied of His godhood. If Jesus hadn’t been only a man, then we could not ever hope to perform miracles like He did.

Quote: “In his book, When Heaven Invades Earth, Johnson explains,

“He [Jesus] performed miracles, wonders, and signs, as a man in right relationship to God, not as God. If He performed miracles because He was God, then they would be unattainable for us. But if he did them as a man, I am responsible to pursue His lifestyle.””

**The booklet Addresses Kenosis, Jesus emptying Himself.

Quote: “Johnson believes in a teaching called kenosis, an unorthodox heretical belief that the Incarnate Christ laid aside His divine attributes and walked the earth as a completely limited, human man.13 According to Johnson, Christ “performed miracles, wonders, and signs, as a man in right relationship to God . . . not as God. If He performed miracles because He was God, then they would be unobtainable for us. But if He did them as a man, I am responsible to pursue His lifestyle. Recapturing this simple truth changes everything.” (Bill Johnson, When Heaven Invades Earth: A Practical Guide to a Life of Miracles, op. cit., Kindle location: 259)

Quote: ““In response to a question about how he cultivates gifts such as prophecy, Johnson replied, “When I taught my boys to ride their bikes I took them to the park where there was a lot of grass so that when they fell, they fell safely. You have to create a context for people to learn the gifts, to operate in the gifts of the spirit. You have to give them permission to not get it right. In fact at our school we actually require our students to fail three times their first year. At least three times or they can’t graduate.” – Bill Johnson

* Taking back what was stolen from us by the New Age movement

“New Booklet: The New Age Propensities of Bethel Church’s Bill Johnson,” https://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/blog/?p=15508

Quote: “In addition to Johnson’s own contribution to the book (one full chapter), his personal assistant, Judy Franklin, is a co-author; and the foreword of The Physics of Heaven is written by Kris Vallotton, Senior Associate leader at Bethel. Vallotton lauds the contributors as “seers.”5 Banning Liebscher, Director of Bethel’s Jesus Culture, adds his praise.6 Bill Johnson’s wife, Beni Johnson, also has a chapter in the book. With all that, The Physics of Heaven undeniably has the approval of Bethel’s leaders.”

Quote: “Ellyn Davis, one of the authors of The Physics of Heaven, says this:

“[The contributors of the book] all agree that the next move of God will cause a shift at the deepest level of who we are—perhaps the very “vibrational level” that the New Age movement has been exploring. They also all agree that there are precious truths hidden in the New Age that belong to us as Christians and need to be extracted from the worthless.”” (The Physics of Heaven, Kindle location, 447)

Quote: “Contributor Jonathan Welton adds:

“I have found throughout Scripture at least 75 examples of things that the New Age has counterfeited, such as having a spirit guide, trances, meditation, auras, power objects, clairvoyance, clairaudience, and more. These actually belong to the church, but they have been stolen and cleverly repackaged.” (The Physics of Heaven, Kindle location, 808)

* New Age/Hindu Meditation/Contemplative/Soaking Prayer

“Bethel Church (Redding, California),” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bethel_Church_(Redding,_California)

Quote: Speaking of a “Bethel produced book” entitled The Physics of Heaven, “One Bethel leader (Kris Vallotton) says it is “a foretaste of things to come”.[10] The book also states, “It wasn’t that I wanted to become a New Ager. I just wanted to find out if maybe they had discovered some truths the churches hadn’t.”[11]

“New Booklet: The New Age Propensities of Bethel Church’s Bill Johnson,” https://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/blog/?p=15508

Quote: Contemplative adherents, such as Richard Foster, have convinced Christians that Eastern and New Age meditation are actually counterfeits of the real deal (i.e., contemplative prayer). Contemplative prayer is presented as an ancient Christian tradition.

Yet, contemplative prayer is not prayer at all. It is essentially Eastern/New Age meditation thinly coated with Christian terminology. The goal in contemplative prayer is to stop the thinking process and to enter what is known as the silence. This is accomplished by repeating a word or phrase over and over (or focusing on the breath) until the word loses its meaning and the mind becomes void.

In this void—this silence—many wonderful deceptions can occur: spirit guides, ascendant masters, oneness, bliss, false “christs.” The deception that occurs through contemplative prayer destroys doctrinal soundness and ultimately even faith.”

“Kundalini Energy (the effects of Soaking Prayer),” November 2013, https://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/blog/?p=1757

Quote: “To those who are still skeptical, I suggest examining the writings of Philip St. Romain, who wrote a book about his journey into contemplative prayer called Kundalini Energy and Christian Spirituality. This title is revealing because kundalini is a Hindu term for the mystical power or force that underlies Hindu spirituality. In Hinduism it is commonly referred to as the serpent power.”

Later Rain/Dominionism/Manifest Sons of God/Seven Mountains Mandate

Below are a number of articles that explain what this belief is. To summarize, however, this has gone by many different names (Manifest Sons of God, Seven Mountains Mandate, Latter Rain, Joel’s Army, New Breed, Dominionism, etc), but all of them refer to the same thing. In short, they teach that last days Christians are not only reincarnations of Christ but are becoming Christ. They are therefore not awaiting the Second Coming of Christ but the “becoming of Christ.” As those who are becoming christs they must take back each of the seven mountains of society until they take over the world with the greatest revival the world has ever seen. Those who are little christs/little gods will take on immortality and will be an invincible Joel’s army of supermen that will conquer the world for Christ, and Christ will then be released to come down from heaven. Doesn’t this sound familiar — maybe “lo here is Christ, lo there” from Matthew 24?

“NARpostle Wagner explains Dominion Mandate, 7 Mountain Mandate & Great Wealth Transfer,”

Quote: “The Seven Mountain Mandate (7MM) was invented by NAR Apostles Bill Bright and Lorren Cunningham. NAR Apostles Lance Wallnau and Johnny Enlow are responsible for repackaging the 7MM and continually pushing this dangerous cult teaching on churches around the world.”

“Kingdom Dominion Theology,” https://www.thebereancall.org/content/kingdom-dominion-theology

Quote:“That teaching can be traced back several centuries, but its recent explosion dates from the Latter Rain, or Manifest Sons of God, movement that began in 1948 in Canada in apparent revival. It was declared to be heresy by the Assemblies of God in 1950. Its relationship to the Word/Faith, positive-confession, prosperity and healing movements (Hagin, Copeland, Capps, Price, et al.) is clearly established. Obviously, if we can get whatever we confess, then we ought to confess healing and immortality and peace and prosperity and salvation for the world. This is, in fact, where the name “Manifest Sons” comes from: the last-days overcomers must manifest total victory over all foes, including death, while in these bodies and without a resurrection…

Many groups are beginning to work together who disagree on some points but join with Gaia (Mother Earth)-worshiping New Agers in their desire to clean up our terra firma and establish the Kingdom. We can expect such cooperative efforts to grow, even involving Christian leaders who are not aware of what they are actually promoting. The Coalition on Revival (COR), for example, included such influential evangelicals as Joseph Aldrich, Pat Robertson, Bill Bright, Jerry Falwell, Armin Gesswein, Josh McDowell and J. I. Packer, who were probably clueless regarding the actual intention of the leaders of COR.”

“Manifest Sons of God Heresy,” http://www.contendingfortruth.com/wp-content/uploads2/Manifested-of-the-Sons-of-God.pdf

Quote: “This belief is not held by one particular group but many individuals are influenced by the teaching. It has many names, such as, The Latter Rain Movement, Identity, Joel’s Army, Restoration and Reconstruction. The Manifest Sons of God doctrine has been around in some Pentecostal circles for many years, but it was the ‘Latter Rain Movement’ of 1948 that gave them a wider audience. This movement was thought of as the last great spiritual outpouring that would see the return of Christ. It would result in the Church being perfected and submitting to the restored ministry of apostles and prophets. These ministries would be in charge of restoring truths that were lost to the Church. Scriptures refer to the rains in Israel as the ‘former rain,’ essential for planting and the ‘latter rain,’ needed for the harvest. Manifest Sons see the former rain as
Pentecost and the latter rain as a greater outpouring of the Spirit in these last days. There is evidence that much teaching on spiritual warfare today, is largely an extension of this doctrine…

“Jesus is considered the ‘Pattern Son.’ He was the first one to make it as a divine, immortal, sinless Manifest Son of God and this accomplishment will be duplicated by each individual who, following Jesus, become Manifest Sons of God. This Christ Company, now individually Manifest as Sons of God, will execute judgement at the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord…

“Rick Joyner is another teacher for this movement. He believes that the elite ‘overcomers’ will conquer the world. This will lead to the greatest revival of history, where the majority of the world will be won to Christ and the kingdom made ready to be received by Christ.””

“Every man who has been born again is an incarnation and Christianity is a
miracle. The believer is as much an incarnation as was Jesus of Nazareth.”
– Kenneth Hagin, The Incarnation, December 1980, p.13

“Who are you? Come on, who are you? Come on, say it: ‘Sons of God!’
Come on, say it! And what does work inside us, brother, is that
manifestation of the expression of all that God is and all that God has. And
when we stand up here, brother, you’re not looking at Morris Cerullo;
you’re looking at God. You’re looking at Jesus.” – Morris Cerullo, The
Endtime Manifestation of the Sons of God, World Evangelism – Tape 1.

“Later Rain and the Rise of Joel’s Army,” http://www.discernmentministries.org/Newsletters/NL1994OctNovDec.pdf

Quote: “Sadly today so called “prophets” are spiritualizing this army and interpreting it to be a supernatural breed of people being birthed without the literal presence of Jesus Christ. Scriptures have been taken out of context to imply a super end-time church made up of a “New Breed” of people who will move in the supernatural realm…

The “waves” that break from time to time are referred to as new waves bringing forth new truths hitherto hidden. One of the strongest waves to bit in this century was the “Latter Rain” referred to as ‘”The New Order of the Latter Rain.” Out of this Movement in the late 40’s came the teaching: “Manifest Sons of God”. Other terms that were prevalent are: “Joel’s Army”, “New Breed”, “Elijah Company”, “Manchild” and “Overcomers” etc. Modem day prophets are always quick to deny that they teach Manifest Sons of God teaching, but yet continue to do so. We see from the 1920’s onward, similar thinking emerging from divergent sources…

In 1948, the Assemblies of God were particularly hit by the wave that came out of
Canada. The new manifestations coming out of the tide were claimed to be of God. The
Assemblies at that time took a strong Stand and officially rejected the new teachings… However today we are seeing a new development – instead of the Assemblies of God
rejecting this teaching in its new garb, they are courting it and have been infiltrated to such an extent they have become part of it.

The MANIFESTED SONS believe they are establishing a new and glorious Kingdom –
led by a NEW BREED of men of women. The” Joel’s Army” now individually manifest as Sons of God, would be revealed to the world as many “saviours” who would take dominion and execute judgment.”

“Is the Seven Mountains Mandate Biblical? What is the 7-M Mandate?” https://www.compellingtruth.org/seven-mountain-mandate.html

Quote: “The 7-M movement places upon Christians a mandate to dominate world systems to usher in Jesus’ return. Spiritually, these ideas are closely associated with New Age thoughts that call for a spiritual shift in which humans become co-redeemers of earth.”

“Lance Wallnau’s 7 Mountain Theology: Beware the Fruit of False Teachings,” https://thepropheticnews.wordpress.com/2017/02/09/dr-lance-wallnaus-7-mountain-theology-beware-the-fruit-of-false-teachings/

Quote: “7 Mountain Mandate simply says, that in order for the church to control the global society, it must take control over every aspect of that particular society and its culture, being 7 cultural mountains. They are; Family, Government, Business, Media, Arts and Entertainment, Education and the church itself. Those who control these cultural gates exercise the greatest influence over the culture and ultimately that society. This is, in a nutshell, the doctrine of Dr. Lance Wallnau and why many are beginning, and have already, been embracing like a strange, intoxicating drink, they (the church) are becoming drunk on this notion that says we shall eradicate evil and overthrow Satan’s kingdom of dominance…

This teaching (7 mountain mandate) is a false teaching simply because it goes against scripture. Jesus gave us (the end time church) a clear picture of the end times just before he returns, and that picture is not one of hope, or victory, but instead, one of which would shake any believer in terrible fear, for he (Jesus) paints a very sobering portrait of what we will see, those who are alive during this particular time, of what the world will look like, as well as resemble, and it is found in Matthew chapter 24, as well as Luke 21:8-28. For your sake I encourage the reader to search those scriptures up and read them repeatedly.”

“The Manifest Sons of God of the Later Rain Movement,” http://letusreason.org/Latrain82.htm

Quote: “Here is the underlying goal within the Latter Rain message of Bill Hamon.

“The whole creation is waiting for the last generation Church. The earth and all of creation are waiting for the manifestation of God’s last-day apostles and prophets and fully restored Church. “For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God” (Romans 8:19 NKJV). When the Church is fully restored, then the saints will receive their final redemption, the immortalization of their mortal bodies. When this happens, then the natural creation of plants and animals will be delivered from their bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.” (Apostles, Prophets and the Coming Moves of God: God’s End-Time Plans for His Church and Planet Earth. Destiny Image Publishers (July 1, 1997). p. 235…

Hamon promotes one of the more distorted doctrines that came from the Latter Rain movement, the manifested sons of God doctrine. Their interpretation of this verse is unique in church history. There is no rapture but people will be changed into eternal beings right here on earth to do miraculous works like Jesus to overcome the devil and the world system BEFORE the Lord returns.

Hamon claims in The Eternal Church, ‘Jesus is waiting on the church. All that the fall of man and sin has taken away from humanity, Jesus through His church shall restore.”

Again  this can only take place “When the Church realizes its full sonship, its bodily redemption will cause a redemptive chain reaction throughout all of creation.” (Bill Hamon p. 385 The Eternal Church)…

Hamon: “When the church has put under it’s feet all enemies of Christ …then Christ can be released from Heaven to return as the manifested head of His physically resurrected and translated church.” (Prophets and Personal Prophecy, Bill Hamon).”

“Paul Cain,” https://www.apologeticsindex.org/c06.html

Quote: “In the 50’s Paul Cain travelled with and ministered alongside William Branham, whom he called “the greatest prophet that ever lived.” Though he disagrees with Branham’s views on the doctrine of theTrinity (which the latter said was inspired by the devil), Cain very much promotes Branham’s Manifest Sons of God teachings. Cain coined the term “New Breed” to refer to that doctrine. Paul Cain was instrumental in founding Kansas City Fellowship (as it was known at the time) – a church based on the teachings of Latter Rain theology. Cain headed the controversial Kansas City Prophets.”

“The Manifest Sons of God/Joel’s Army/Later Rain Movement Exposed,” https://www.contendingfortruth.com/the-manifest-sons-of-godjoels-armylater-rain-movement-exposed/

Quote: “ ‘The Manifest Sons of God'(MSOG) movement has many names such as, The Latter Rain Movement, Identity, Joel’s Army, Restoration and Reconstruction. MSOG doctrine has been around in some Pentecostal circles for many years, but it was the ‘Latter Rain Movement’ of 1948 that gave it a wider audience. This movement was thought by its adherents as the last great spiritual outpouring that would see the return of Christ. It would result in the Church being perfected and submitting to the restored ministry of apostles and prophets. These ministries would supposedly be in charge of restoring truths that were lost to the Church. But when we examine the fruit of this movement and see how it’s doctrine compares to the Word of God, it falls woefully short…

‘The Great Tribulation itself is going to be cut short because of the Sons of God…so the Sons of God, through the exercise of their royal priesthood, shall actually shorten the Great Tribulation… As priests, they will be able to present the needs of the people to God, and intercede for them; and as kings they will have the authority of God to dispense life and blessing to such as are in tribulation and distress.’ – George Warnock: The Feast of the Tabernacles, p.79…

‘Who are you?…Come on, say it: ‘Sons of God!’ Come on, say it!…And when we stand up here, brother, you’re not looking at Morris Cerullo; you’re looking at God. You’re looking at Jesus.’ – Morris Cerullo, The Endtime Manifestation of the Sons of God, World Evangelism – Tape 1…

‘Man was created on terms of equality with God, and he could stand in God’s presence without any consciousness of inferiority…Kenneth Copeland, Zoe: The God-Kind of Life, 1989, pp.35-36”

Quote: She produced her first solo album, Here Is My Song, which was released in February 2008 through the Jesus Culture record label.[1][2] Walker-Smith is best known as the worship leader for the Jesus Culture Band and Jesus Culture events, and a worship pastor for Bethel Church in Redding.[3]

“Kim Walker-Smith,” worship pastor for Bethel Church Redding and worship leader of Jesus Culture, https://www.wcicfm.org/artist/kim-walker-smith-2/

– Just confirms that she is a worship leader at Bethel church, and therefore exposes the fact that she is under the leadership and teaching of Bill Johnson.

“Opening Heaven – Opening Up Oneself to a Strong Delusion,” http://letusreason.org/bethel3.htm

Quote: “Kim Walker-Smith a worship pastor for Bethel Church in Redding and worship leader for the Jesus Culture Band has a vision that would more akin to a hallucinogenic trip, it certainly was not God from the Bible no matter how passionate she is in conveying it… To believe Jesus is begging her to ask him this certain question and brings her to heaven where she sees God the Father (which the bible says no man can see). God rips a piece out of himself and forms it into her right on the spot and then gets entertained but putting her in a music box and continues to open it to see her dancing. Saying “Woohoo! And He starts running around in circles.” And she is transferred into the Fathers hand, where he then he puts her into the missing portion of his heart where he says I created you from and commends her.

Really? I mean Really?! This is her view of God by going to Bethel church. Contrary to this, holy men who went to heaven fell down as dead (John) and could not convey what they saw for it was illegal (Paul). John later was allowed so we would have it written to know what is genuine.”

Amanda Lindsey Cook:

*Bethel worship leader.

*Singer and song writer.

*A part of Bethel Music.

“Amanda Lindsey Cook,” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amanda_Lindsey_Cook

Note: Her words are more New Age than Christian. What she says is disturbing at best. Is this how a worship leader should talk? Is this what King David and psalmist in the Bible would say? Quotes from her interview with the Christian Post are in the article linked above. A link to the full interview is found in this article by Holly Pivec.

Quote: “… Amanda Lindsey Cook also teaches at Bethel Church in Redding, California, home to Bethel Music. Given her unclear and curious responses during the interview, one may wonder how she ever was approved to teach at any church, let alone one as large and influential as Bethel Church.”

Quotes of Amanda Lindsey Cook from her interview:

“Every day I increasingly felt like gravity and the great beyond, called God, was working in my favor.”

“”I love the names that this essence and this divine presence gives itself. In the Old Testament, where God describes themselves as ‘I am,’ also the name Yahweh, ‘the intake and the exhale of breath.'”

“”It’s this common acknowledgment, this communal aspect of living, where we’re all connected, we’re all part of the common thread … to be connected at the source to this divine presence, this Christ consciousness…”

Jesus Culture:

“Jesus Culture,” https://www.bethel.com/ministries/jesus-culture/

Quote: “In 1999 the youth group pastored by Banning Liebscher at Bethel Church

launched the first Jesus Culture Conference. This gave birth to Jesus Culture and paved the way for what it is today–a global movement awakening hearts to worship and serve God. Through events, worship, resources, and a local church, Jesus Culture has a mandate to mobilize a generation of revivalists and reformers who will shape culture and transform nations.”

“Bethel Church Believes a Different Gospel,”http://pastorgabehughes.blogspot.com/2017/10/bethel-church-believes-different-gospel.html

Quote: “When you hear the word “gospel” mentioned at Bethel Church, know that it is a different gospel they’re talking about. This filters into all of their ministries. The “Jesus” in the name “Jesus Culture” is not the Jesus of the Bible. When you listen to their worship songs, you might hear all the right Christian words, but you are not praising God with them because they are writing and singing about a different Jesus.”

“Jesus Culture: Just Another Christian Band?” http://www.4discernment.com/jesus-culture.html

Quote: Jesus Culture started as a youth group at Bill Johnson’s church Bethel in Redding California… It must be made clear that Bethel Church and Jesus Culture cannot be separated for their roots are in Bill Johnson…”

“An Open Heaven – Opening Up Oneself to a Strong Delusion,” http://letusreason.org/bethel3.htm

Quote: “Now over the last many years it is Bethel under Bill Johnson spearheading a mystical Christianity. He is a man who has less than 0% discernment (in fact they change the meaning of discernment to be “changing the atmosphere.” Bethel has become the sweet spot for every trend tried and some new ones. It is the new Hybrid model for the church, combining new age practices (which they say were once Christian and they are now redeeming them) one of them is yoga. These revivalists are fooling the whole Christian world with their synergism of new age with Christianity using occasional Bible words. It’s time we stand up for the word of God who is Jesus. Its time for the church to be what it was intended to be and not be changed by new age change agents touting their Gnosticism and Mysticism. This is no longer a subtle change but bold and audacious one, and it has gone on far too long through the various false revivals. Only to find a more permanent home at Bethel among the naïve ungrounded youth that are inclined to feel more than to think biblically.”

The NAR Bible Translation of Choice: The Passion Bible

“A New Apostolic Reformation Bible: The Passion Translation,” https://www.thebereancall.org/content/new-apostolic-reformation-bible-passion-translation

Quote: “Apostle Brian Simmons, of Stairway Ministries, is the lone translator of this “groundbreaking” project…

Simmons’ translation is endorsed by influential NAR leaders…

Simmons claims he undertook this work because he saw a need for a more emotionally passionate translation of the Bible…

Simmons has taken verses of Scripture that have nothing to do with NAR teachings or practices and reworded them so they appear to support those very teachings and practices, such as  “prophetic singing,” the “transference of an anointing,”  and the issuing of “apostolic decrees.” In other words, despite his claim to unveil the truth of the Bible “unfiltered by religious jargon,” he’s actually exploiting his audience’s ignorance of sound textual criticism to smuggle in a heterodox theology along with a good measure of NAR jargon.”

“New Apostolic Reformation Movement,” https://churchwatchcentral.com/new-apostolic-reformation-movement/

Quote: NAR Bible: Like most cults, the NAR have extra-biblical revelations that add, surpass or mangle the bible. Brian Simmons’ ‘The Passion Translation’ (TPT) is the ‘bible’ that NAR leaders preach and teach from. In fact, if you are unsure if your church is part of the NAR or is being influenced by the NAR, if your leaders are using the TPT, that should be a warning sign.”

The Translator of the Passion Bible

“Pt.5 The Mystical Interpretations and Teachings of Brian Simmons,” http://www.letusreason.org/Popteach106.htm

The “becoming of Christ” teaching in conjunction with the Later Rain and Manifest Sons of God teaching of Branham, and Christ’s second coming on the clouds is actually about people becoming Christ.

We ARE the reincarnation of Jesus Christ…” And this again is in agreement with the teachings of William Branham who said, “I believe that’s Jesus Christ reincarnated in flesh in the human church here on earth a doing signs and wonders. ” (53-1205, The Resurrection, American Legion Hall, West Palm Beach)

The Passion Bible Endorsements of NAR Leadership

Bill Johnson says that it is, “One of the greatest things to happen with Bible translation in my lifetime.” https://www.thepassiontranslation.com/endorsements/

Lou Engle

“”Forged many years ago while translating the Scriptures among South American tribes, and hammered out on the anvil of decades of personal devotion and apostolic experience, my dear friend Brian Simmons brings to the earth a powerful and refreshing translation of the Scriptures that is fueling and inflaming the hearts of tens of thousands world wide. Like the Living Bible that sprung forth in the days of the Jesus Movement, this translation bursts forth from the womb of this present revival. Read it and get caught up in a God-swirl of spiritual understanding and revelation.”

Patricia King

“The Passion Translation skillfully penned by Dr. Brian Simmons contains deep treasures that can only be discovered through intense scholarly research saturated in Divine Revelation. Dr. Brian Simmons fulfilled both of these criteria so he could present to you this glorious gift. Keys to knowing the heart of God and His deep love for His people will fill you as you read and meditate on the scriptures. I personally cannot get enough of this translation! It is beyond beautiful!”

Heidi Baker

“During my over four decades of ministry around the world, I have read and preached from various Bible translations in different languages. They are all powerful and anointed, and each has its particular strengths. The Passion Translation is one that speaks with particular poetic imagination in a style that is deeply moving and easily accessible. I have found it truly refreshing in personal devotion. It has been a steadfast help and comfort in the midst of many storms”

Banning Liebscher (founder of Jesus Culture)

“In a world that is constantly shaking, The Passion Translation is making Scripture accessible to a generation whose lives long to be established on the truth of God’s Word. Young and old are experiencing the inevitable freedom that comes when you encounter the power found in God’s Word, and are being ignited with a passion for Jesus that will not be extinguished. My own personal devotion and study has been deeply impacted by The Passion Translation and I am grateful for what this work is adding to the body of Christ.”

Che Ahn

“I believe The Passion Translation will be the Bible of choice for the next Jesus people movement.”

Chuck Pierce

“I have devoured The Passion Translation! There is a fragrance of God’s Spirit that emanates from the powerful expressions that Brian Simmons has brought forth in this translation. Not only have I used The Passion Translation for teaching, but I have picked up certain books of the Bible and read them like a living novel. I love this translation!”
