Send What? What kind of revival is this? p.1

While the Send made its cause evangelism in its application it was hardly anything related to it.
The gospel that is being preached by many of the speakers is false, the Jesus is “another Jesus” (2 Corinthians:11:4)

All one has to do is look at Benny Hinn and Rodney Browne and Bill Johnson’s statements that Jesus was not deity on earth, but a man, which completely denies the incarnation. In this way Kenneth Hagin was right when he said we are as much an incarnation as Jesus is. For to them Jesus was not God in the flesh. Which means he, and the others do not understand “the mystery of godliness.”

So when The Send exhorts 50,000 young attendees to take the gospel to the ends of the earth, which one is it? For many were word faith and deny Jesus purchased our redemption and completed it on the cross. There were still 3 days of torture for Jesus who became a satanic human and was in hell  to redeem us.

One was left to interpret their hearing the speakers, with no clear declaration by the speakers of the gospel. Speakers like Francis Chan, Lou Engle, Todd White, Bill Johnson, Mike Bickle… what was missing on their website was Benny Hinn and Rodney Browne who were both there and called on fire on the 50,000 youth attendees. Browne said “fire is already falling on your mouth and your hands” just like the Latter Rain of William Branham.

Hinn has said before the Church is deficient because of the absence of a “fire" anointing and called for fire to come on them at the conference. This is all from the Latter Rain  and the great false teacher William Branham.

they are sent out by being baptized in fire (which is unbiblical).

According to Lou Engle, The Send came to be when In 2011 a major revelatory shift took place. Into my living room walked these YWAM wild men, and they began to prophesy, there’s a coming shift to The Call. And it will not just be fasting and praying, but the proclamation of the gospel, signs and wonders and stadiums will be filled. And Billy Graham’s mantle is coming on the nation. And then they said, The Call is gonna lead to The Send.”

We should not ignore that this was Paul Cain’s vision (a disciple of false teacher William Branham) that tried to make this happen in Lakeland with Todd Bentley. And Engle not only approved of Paul Cain, he calls him a great prophet. He repeats the story of his mother being told by Jesus  that will do the miracles of the apostle Paul (which did not happen). Or that Engle approves of Cain's vision of stadiums that he will fulfill (instead of Paul).




Billy Graham's anointing sounds much like introducing a Roman Catholic view of apostolic succession. There is no such thing as a mantle in the New Testament and even if one were to use Elijah, when Elisha asked Elijah for his mantle he told his protégé it is not mine to give. He was told to wait and see if the Lord would place it on him.  It was only for him. what Engle is speaking of it coming upon millions. I don't care how much Mr. Engle bends forward (very strange) or how loud or excited Mr. Engle gets, it's all unbiblical and hyped up jumbled up with Bible words.

Lou Engle wants to see Evangelical and Catholics unite, become one. Can we unite with Catholics to “preach the Gospel,” when they have a different way of salvation; through the church? We are seeing him and others promote an inclusivism that is detrimental to true believers in Christ Jesus.

On the send’s web ad “What if the completion of the GREAT COMMISSION depended on our action and willingness to work together? Below we have a list of artists and speakers who have responded to lift up a sound together and believe for a new Jesus Movement.”

This shows the diminished understanding they hold. Lift up a sound? How about lifting up Jesus with a message! Lifting up a sound is what we read in the book The Physics of Heaven (from Bethel) describing God is to bring a new sound vibration (a new age slant).
We believe this day, something will transfer and bring us into, I believe, worldwide transition into the greatest Jesus movement we have ever seen.” (Lou Engle)

When the Jesus movement began in the 70’s it didn’t have, nor need many to begin a movement. It was sent by God through those who were preaching the word. This movement is not that. It is filled with false teachers, hype artists, word smiths who manipulate people into a false experience.

On the Send website they explain in 2011 the Lord spoke to the leaders of The Call through a group of YWAM (Youth With A Mission) missionaries that a shift was coming that would give birth to a new sending movement, as a beginning fulfillment to their years of prayer and fasting.

Since we know that Loren Cunningham's vision (1975) was that is of the 7 mountains which is a kingdom Now Dominionist concept, these prophetic utterances from those who are leaders in YWAM must be questioned.

A number of years ago YWAM that accepted the gods of the nations to be the true God for their evangelism, via Daniel Kikawa who said “We should instead introduce Jesus as the Son of their creator God.” (Perpetuated in Righteousness, p.27) Which means whatever god the nation had, (which is false)… Jesus is that god’s son. which denies his Jewishness, his incarnation among his people. Which means God the Father is these nations gods. This is not a true message for evangelism which YWAM supported wholeheartedly by their president John Dawson.

Engle says “I consider them [YWAM] to be the most effective mission organization.

We should also be aware (beware) Kingdom now Dominionism is also held by the majority of speakers who are word faith and part of the New apostolic movement. That they are the last generation to bring about the great end-times revival. For it is Christians/ the church will rule the earth before the return of Jesus.

One of the speakers of “The Send” is Ben Fitzgerald, a Bethel Redding pastor who has traveled over Europe and is doing grave soaking. The intention is to transfer the spiritual powers, the mantle of dead saints to live ones. This is not only an unbiblical practice, it borders on the demonic, but then nearly everything from Bethel is tainted, as its pastor influences the young and old with new age concepts.

Johnson in the book, The Physics of Heaven says this on anointing and mantles. “There are anointings, mantles, revelations and mysteries that have lain unclaimed, literally where they were left, because the generation that walked in them never passed them on. I believe it’s possible for us to recover realms of anointing, realms of insight, realms of God that have been untended for decades simply by choosing to reclaim them and perpetuate them for future generations.

Todd White is the new type of evangelist. He goes about videoing his ability to lengthen legs, apparently everyone has a one foot shorter than the other that is causing them health problems. He too denies Jesus was God in the flesh, but only flesh. White learned well from his mentors Hinn and Copeland and Johnson. All this shows is that he speaks with no regard for the truth which these men distort so effortlessly.

He spoke at the 2017 Jesus Conference in Orlando with Word Faith preachers Benny Hinn and Kenneth Copeland. He has ingratiated himself to these men which should say enough about him that he should be avoided.
As far as the others…

Bickle promotes Mysticism Gnosticism (contemplative prayer) and is latter rain adherent, so much wrong and very little right and they expect God to honor this?

Next year, 2020, The Send will be at Sao Paulo Brasil.
There is more, as “light the fire again” is bringing it all together this September to rekindle the Pensacola/ Toronto/ drunk in the spirit mysticism with John Arnott, Lou Engle, Reinhard Bonkke, Caludio Freidzon, Rodney Howard Browne, Todd White and a host of other sordid characters.
Their ad states – We are believing for God to Rekindle the Flames of Revival and see a mighty move of His Holy Spirit sweep across the earth, stirring the hearts of this generation!
We are expecting attendees from all around the world to have an encounter with God like never before

The waves of revival that swept around the world in the 1990s have left a lasting impact on millions of people around the globe. You may have even witnessed the power of God fall and remember what this revival was like. Have you been praying and fasting for a fresh revival that will spark the next great awakening?

In fact at the end of their advertisement they have John Arnott who headed the Toronto (non) Blessing stating

It didn’t spark anything Godly the last time, why should now? Any should have one see this is all apostasy. Falling being drunk, uncontrollable laughter, paralyzed, dumb or rolling around on the floor and acting like animals is not of God’s Spirit.

Rom. 13:11-14:1 And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.

Pray for the people of Brasil to use discernment and discretion in this matter, pray for the Church worldwide, that is about to get attacked with false teachers who claim a new and greater Pentecost is taking place. This will cause more division because these are false teachers this so called power and activity is coming from.
