Two Lines in Heaven?

November 23, 2010

I have come to the point in my walk with God through my understanding of His word that it is important for us to understand that Jesus, through what He was called to do upon the cross and ultimately through His resurection, finished the work of sanctification. When people start listening to and studying stuff from the NAR (New Apostolic Reformation) teachers such as Paul Caine, Bob Jones, Ryan Wyatt, Todd Bentley, Patricia King, Joshua Mills and so many others, they start feeling powerful and somehow begin to sense that it is THEY who are going to prepare God’s Kingdom SO that Jesus CAN return to find them sanctified because of the WORK they did. It’s a subtle twist but in the end it leaves two lines; One waiting to present themselves naked and powerless before the Lord, humbled by what HE has done for THEM and another line (a longer one, sadly) waiting eagerly to show the Lord how much THEY’VE done for HIM. When I think of this idea I am reminded of Matthew 7:23 – “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” What a terrible day that will be for some. I remain in prayer.

It always seemed strange to me when someone would say they were “getting a download from God” and that this download was supposed to be some word of prophecy that would bring us new revelation. I started to do some reading and studying (starting with the Bible and a good study guide) and began to write my findings. Then I stumbled upon a writing at “Got Questions dot ORG” and found that their writing was more concise than what I had been trying to write so I just copied and pasted. Here it is!

Question: “Are there prophets in the church today?” (more…)

Joel’s Army ~ Army of Anointed People or Swarm of Locusts?

March 10, 2010

Over the past few years, intrigued by a seemingly blatant error in the church known as Kingdom Now Theology, I have been watching and waiting to see what would happen to the Church as a result of teachings from the “Manifest Sons of God/Joel’s Army” movement that seems to have gained momentum in the Charismatic/Evangelical Church led by the likes of Mike Bickle and Rick Joyner in the wake of William Branham’s wave of “Latter Rain” teachings from the 1950s.
