p.1 Are you at God speed yet?

Joe Kovac and the speed of the spirit to learn everything

The Ad asks, “Has the divine code finally been cracked?”

“It's stunning in a very good way when we realize the entire Bible is not just full of physical history, but the Creator is voicing additional messages on the spirit level that come to life when we listen at God speed, the allegory level above and beyond human speed.”

The creator speaks new revelation by learning to live allegorically.”

Here we have Kovacs saying new words of revelation can come to us. The Bible is then an open book as God speaks all through the day in various ways. By songs, movies, commercials and yes through unbelievers continually.

In fact he states, “is it possible the very words we speak are actually carrying divine messages from our Creator since God Himself is the ultimate Word?” The answer from him is a resounding YES!

One thing we can be certain of Kovacs is not what one would call a Bible-based Evangelical Christian who holds to the infallible Scripture. He holds to some biblical truths – but then so do many false teachers. In fact Kovac’s has some striking similarities to Michael Heiser’s teachings, that can’t be coincidence, that is unless they are both working at ‘god speed.’

His book rocketed to the #1 position in several Amazon categories even before its official release Jan. 25 this year. That is a sad commentary on what is going on. As we will see this book is more like a Gnostic /spiritistic view of the world, contrary to normal Biblical Christianity.

He’s advertised well and has been interviewed on countless radio programs. But appearing on radio or TV does not mean he’s more knowledgeable than others; which he is not, only more promotional. What it does mean is that people’s ears like the tickling from new things; and in this Kovac delivers.

He claims to be an expert in the mysteries, “the hidden content of the Bible.” What about the openly revealed content -- Not so much. Like the Triunity of God, (even though most people say the Trinity is a mystery). Or the message of salvation by grace through faith?

What would anyone do without Kovac’s understanding in his book, on all these ‘mysterious subjects’ he claims to reveal to us. It seems we are in a time when certain people can take advantage of the naiveté of others so very easily.

This ad states, “ Joe’s latest work takes the Bible to a level that has never been reached before. ” That’s a boast few if any can or should ever make. But advertising his spiritual intelligence is what sales are all about. This places Mr. Kovac in a class far above all the faithful servants of the Lord throughout the ages! No Bible teacher is called upon to supposedly take the Bible to a level never reached before! Anyone who is called by the Lord is to make plain the Scriptures, as they are written, without embellishment and without seeking any hidden meanings (that are simply not there). But draw from the well of water of the Word and be refreshed.

In our time that is simply not enough. As Peter spoke in his second epistle they will make merchandise of you.

Kovacs’ claims

Just consider the title of this book: Reaching God Speed: Unlocking the Secret Broadcast Revealing the Mystery of Everything. Apart from the obvious fact (proven by his own words) that “reaching God speed” is a completely unbiblical concept. Where exactly from the Bible could a genuine Christian extrapolate such a phrase “Unlocking the Secret Broadcast Revealing the Mystery of Everything . “ Hundreds of ancient mysteries and prophecies are instantly unsealed as the master key that unlocks the mystery of everything is now in your hands .”

Understand, his book is the key. Putting aside any semblance of humility, he is assuring us that this one book (of his) will unlock and reveal the mystery of… everything. Not certain things; not a few things; not even many things; but everything. That is an astoundingly claim. In fact one could not live without it if it were true. We have 2,000 years of Church history, and the teachings of so many godly Bible expositors -– but we supposedly had to wait until the year 2022 for the publication of a book by this man who can reveal, unlocked all mysteries.

What a relief that you lived to learn this! You can now rush out to buy this book, and know the mysteries of everything. Sounds like someone who said in the garden you will be like god.

As he watched his book climb the charts, Kovacs said “ I am so inspired and humbled to see that despite all the turmoil in our present world, many people have a strong desire to learn hidden truths about God and their own glorious future .”

Kovacs is offering hidden knowledge which is what Freemasonry, Spiritualism, Rosicrucianism and the Occult have offered throughout history. This began with ancient Babylonian mysteries as they rejected what they knew of God, desiring knowledge elsewhere (Rom.1). If you learn the truth, and know the truth you do not desire secret things Kovacs offers by his book. People of the world seek secrets, what is hidden, to have control over their lives; but “Christians” are to be satisfied with the openly revealed truths of the Bible that are to be our instructions. In our growth a spiritual depth occurs in our individual lives by understanding of the Word.

But consider his statement: “ many people have a strong desire to learn hidden truths about God. ” What hidden truths?

Are the hidden secrets of God found by Kovac now revealed? The bible says they are held by God and kept hidden Deut.29:29 “ The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law .” Notice what they are for, to obey his Word.

The Lord has revealed what we need to know in His Word. We are to understand it. All the Bible makes known about God and what He does, is available to every believer who simply reads His Word with a humble heart, praying for the Holy Spirit to teach him.

Are there secrets, or, are there things that are written that we do not understand yet? We are told over and over to get understanding.

Matt 11:25 Jesus answered and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes.”

Are we told by any of the authors of the New Testament to look for embedded messages, for secrets? Kovac has all the secrets one can fit in a book (wait for his next one if there’s not enough room for them all).

In Matthew 13:34, Scripture notes: “ Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable.”  A parable would help by practical everyday examples illustrate his meaning to those who sought the truth.

Kovacs says, and he did not tell them anything without a parable.” Which is not exactly what is said or what this means, for he spoke plainly to them.

Matt 13:35 “I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things kept secret from the foundation of the world. ” These are not secret but written.

Jesus said in John 18:20 “and in secret I have said nothing.”

The Gnostics used the parables, symbols the things people did not understand for giving new secret meanings to Jesus’ own word. The Rosicrucian’s were famous for this kind of reinterpreting in their religion. taking literal to be allegorical or maker allegorical literal.

Luke 12:1-2 “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known. ”

One of the components of their leaven is that they would tell the people what things meant and how to live. Not from the Bible but by their traditions that interpreted the Word.

So how, according to Kovac are we supposed to have these great mysteries revealed to us? Here is his unbiblical answer: “ The secrets become revealed when we make the jump from using our five physical senses, or ‘human speed,’ to applying the very Spirit of God Himself, reaching what I call ‘God speed. ’”

Exactly where is ‘God speed’ mentioned in Scripture? It is not found by word, nor by concept.

Kovac states, “ We simply need to exercise our God-given 'ears to hear,' as Jesus said, and get up to speed –– up to 'God speed' –– which is the spirit level of understanding .'“

No, it is by the Holy Spirit teaching as we diligently study and rightly dividing the word that one learns. That is not what he is describing. Here is a portion of his description…

[God speed is] the template revealing the way the Creator of the universe thinks, operates and teaches, having a mind that runs above and beyond the human speed at which all of us regular folk in the flesh naturally think. It’s the higher speed or spirit level at which God broadcasts to us, embedding His message in everything .”

He calls his new revelation a revealing of how God operates; ‘God speed.’” But it is not biblical teaching. God does not embed his message everywhere, and Kovac does mean everywhere.

“It’s perhaps the best-kept secret in the history of mankind and it packs a staggering, invigorating message about our own personal lives and futures being broadcast on all frequencies. All we have to do is open our eyes and ears .”

Since Christ came, for nearly 2000 years the Church has apparently not known this. Is this what Jesus meant when he said to have ears to hear? What did we ever do until Mr. Kovac came along to bring this teaching to the church!

“Another Bible version of that last verse makes it even clearer, how we've been destined for greatness: God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure (Ephesians 1:5 NLT).

“Make no mistake about it. If we repent and make the effort to be on God's team, we're destined for greatness.”

There is the hook that catches the fish, God says to become little, humble, a servant to actually be great in his kingdom, which is certainly not the same as a general promise to all of being destined for greatness, (just like a best selling author named Osteen) but maybe Kovac found a new and improved way, because he can reveal all mysteries! How many saints have been killed, persecuted during their lives, even today in other nations. Only in America can he make this statement.

So what exactly is Kovacs’ “God Speed” Concept?

The theme of Kovacs’ new book - we’ve all been missing something extraordinary in life, and that we can discover and understand the secret to everything that takes place in our daily lives, while unlocking hundreds of Bible mysteries these are those that are rarely discussed in most churches.”

There is the appeal to the unknown. I did not know there were hundreds of Bible mysteries (the Bible mentions only eight)

Kovacs’ says, These “Bible mysteries” are “rarely, discussed in most churches.” That is because many are not in the Bible. They are the inventions of Kovacs’ own interpretation.

We read in the ad, He “ solves with clarity three of the greatest mysteries in Scripture, unveiling the surprisingly simple meaning of “the beast,” “the number of the beast” and “the mark of the beast.”

What is the beast according to Kovacs, this is what he calls clarity. He quotes Ps 49:12 of man being like the beasts and then numerous scriptures about animals which have no relation to this topic in the book of Revelation. He then says the beasts are mankind, referring to mankind in rebellion against God, “we are the beast, ” that our sports teams are called lions, tigers and bears.” (Plain truth interview)

This happens to be one of the worst distorted interpretations I have ever heard. And has both mysticism and Gnostic methods of interpretation at work. The person interviewing him asks about the beast being satan or one particular person is actually all of us. We are the beast ?

His Answer: If anything or anyone in rebellion against God which is a government which is made up of mankind or an individual person, that is the beast. We can see more proof when we talk about the number of the beast.”

Are your seatbelts on, he tells us after reading the scripture in Rv.13, “ wisdom is needed, here we need to make the jump to God speed. We have to connect the dots from the rest of the bible and it tells us the number of the beats is the number of man (no of a certain man), the number of any person of mankind in general.so its not hard after you see all the other examples I mentioned… he says of the number man was made on the 6th day, we are told to work 6 days, he then relates it to Heb.13:8. “if you are in rebellion against God in the past, the present or in the future you have the number of the beast.”

This is so absurd an interpretation and it’s hard to describe in words how misleading it all is. He is saying you are born with this number because all are in rebellion until they turn their lives over to the Lord. If you have his number then you’re condemned forever according to the Bible (Rv.14:9).

This is talking about a single man who is to come Rv. 11:7 the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, (the saints) and kill them .” We read the world follows the beast and the dragon (Satan) who gave him his power.” Another beast does signs to deceive before this Beast. And of course Rv.13:18 calculating the number of the Beast which is 666. If you receive this number you are doomed. Read up on the Beast in Revelation and what the Scripture warns of you decide if this sound like what he is interpreting in his explanation.

Kovacs actually has the audacity to say “I pray this new tool will help people open their ears so they can better understand what's being broadcast on the Spirit or parable level of Scripture, what I call 'God speed.'“

I see, he has given us A new tool? He is ignorant on the Scripture and claims a direct contact with the Spirit to bring you this understanding.

2 Tim 3:16-17 “ All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

1 Tim 4:8 “ but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.”

1 Tim 6:3 the doctrine which accords with godliness, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (2 Pet. 1:3). Not through hidden knowledge outside of Scripture like the Gnostics.

This is what we are to seek by understanding the Word and living it out. Are we not taught by the Holy Spirit and led by reading the Scriptures? It’s worked so far for those people who are willing to believe and follow. That is unless we have been doing it wrong for 2,000 years and need his book to be THE Bible help to discover this secret in the last days we live in!

What every Christian needs to understand from the Bible is revealed by personal, daily Bible study, and by hearing, and reading the Word of God (Eph. 4:11-16).

He says ,”It's perhaps the best-kept secret in the history of mankind and it packs a staggering, invigorating message that can change your life for the better-improving understanding, eliminating anxiety, and helping to extend your living years indefinitely. All we have to do is open our eyes and ears. it is the means by which we can truly decipher virtually everything with which we're presented in life. It provides the ability to make the unseen visible, the unheard audible , and the complex simple. It carries the secret message on every frequency and every wavelength. It is a level of understanding that operates much faster than human speed. It's infinitely quick and alive.”

“It's present in our favorite songs and movies, the stories we tell our children, and even in every commercial campaign! The secret is broadcast in famous news stories including the coronavirus pandemic, the sinking of the Titanic, or the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9/11. It's in ordinary life activities such as breathing, sleeping, waking up, traveling, sex, and getting married and changing one's name.”

Why is he saying this? Because he believes “Gods presence is in everything, the scriptures are the template, the unseen template for everything that happens in life” (Plain truth interview)

A God presence, a type of consciousness permeating all is pantheistic.  This is not Christianity. Christianity tells us God is sovereign and in control which is a very different matter than 'in everything. '

How far out is this mans teaching, listen to this, he teaches “ when someone asks you name, when you say your own identity, you are saying Gods name first because you are saying I am, whatever you name is ….

“you are saying Gods name first because god has used that phrase I am to identify himself ( he then quotes the scripture in exodus 3:14) so it’s a memorial for how we remember God because your saying it everytime you say your name, your own identity is attached to God and ,once resurrected we will have Gods name on us forever, it’s another way of saying we are going to become on a divine level children of God” (an influence from Michael Heiser?).(Plain truth interview)

In marriage there is a name change, he explains, “we get a change from human beings to God beings. Ps.82 I said you are gods” (more new age metaphysical interpretations).

The church should not be entertaining any of these foreign concepts.

As stated in the first segment article on his new book venture, Kovac is presenting himself like a spiritual Einstein who can reveal what the bible has not, ‘what God says in everything?’ This means we can truly decipher virtually everything happening in life. Using this God speed he claims that it ‘ provides the ability to make the unseen visible, the unheard audible .’ He explains how God embeds hidden messages forecasting the future in the physical, historical events recorded in Scripture and music and ‘many other places’… But God does not ”embed His message in everything.” He has revealed what we need to know openly in the Holy Scriptures.
