Do You wonder why there are so few Biblical churches left?

We have seen these so called revivals over the last 30 plus years. It is more accurate to say it is revivalism – meaning, it is men hyping people up to think something spiritual is actually taking place when it is false doctrine and practices that are being introduced for them to believe and live by.

We have seen the rise of the seeker friendly models, the soft social gospel of Rick Warren and willow Creek added to the mix, the music revivalism of Hillsong. All the mystical / Gnostic movements that have continued as little fires spread over the landscape of Christian Churches in America and throughout the World.

Now over the last many years it is Bethel under Bill and Beni Johnson spearheading a mystical new age Christianity that has become the model for so many. They have modeled it after the vineyard of John Wimber. Johnson is a man who has less than 0% discernment (in fact they changed the meaning of discernment to be “changing the atmosphere.”) Bethel has become the sweet spot for every trend tried and some new ones to experiment with. It is the new age Hybrid model for the churches, combining new age practices (which they say were once Christian and they are now redeeming them), one of them is yoga, to unite with the Hindu god within us all. That is what they are now calling Christianity.

Rom. 10:17-18 “then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.One cannot be built up to maturity without learning ‘and understanding’ the Word of God (Mt.13:19; Mt.13:23; Mk.12:33). When new revelation by experience subordinates The Word you have left practicing the faith. And that is what we see that is taking place all too often.

Its blasphemy against God, as they take another religions practice and mix it with Judaic Christian teachings of the Word. This is what the emergent Church has done. This is not following Jesus. Ps 33:4 “For the word of the LORD is right, And all His work is done in truth.” John 17:17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth”this means whatever revelation is not found in his Word is not truth!

These ‘revivalists’ are fooling the whole Christian world with their synergism of new age teachings combined with Christianity, using occasional Bible words out of context for the Christian reset. It’s time we all stand up for the Word of God, who is Jesus, Its time for the Church to be unified in the truth to what we are intended to be by the Holy Spirit and not be transformed by new age change agents of Gnosticism and Mysticism.

This is no longer a subtle infiltration of change but a bold and audacious one, and it has gone on far too long through the various false revivals of the ‘rich and famous’ evanjellocal’s that are misleading the church. Whose teachings and practices find a home among the naïve, ungrounded youth who are now part of Christianity.

When you hear Jenn Johnson say the Holy Spirit to her is like the Blue Genie of Aladdin, he’s fun, sneaky, silly; (spoken on at least 3 occasions) when He is God, supposed to be holy there is something seriously wrong with the pastor, her father bringing no correction to his own daughter saying this.

What about the crazy talk of body parts in a heavenly room that we can claim them. A storeroom of body parts for replacements… for us on earth! Just reach up and grab one says Bill Johnson.

Anything is accepted by those who have an unbiblical Christianity. Bible verses contextually read for these activities are all missing or completely revamped to fit.

We no longer have to be concerned with atheist’s skepticism or disbelief when we have so much talk of unbiblical nonsense coming from within that is so easily accepted by so many.

Roberts Lairdon claims that he toured heaven when he was 8 years old and saw this room. Robin Harfouche claims she went to heaven and saw it, so did Bob Jones, Kat Kerr there are too many other copycats of this heresy to name.

Is there anyone who is in their right mind, a Christ centered mind as the Bible teaches. Those who actually went to heaven we can read what they have said.

We read of Paul taken to the third heaven in 2 Cor.12 he speaks in the second person and saysV.:4 how he was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.” That it is not lawful to repeat what he heard.

Because of this experience he explains in 2 Cor. 12:7-8 “ lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. “

John describes his experience of which he is not only allowed to convey to the church what he sees and hears but commanded to by the one who is the Alpha and Omega. Rv.1:11 “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches…”

Rv. 4:1 “a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, "Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this."

As the last living apostle Jesus specifically gave John the future of mankind by calling him to himself in heaven, commissioned to write what he saw to all the churches which is read by all through history (Rv.1:11,19). Any other person who makes this claim today is a liar or under a deception of a fallen spirit or their own vivid imagination.

Apart from actually dying, only the rapture of the church (corporately) will bring us to heaven.

Where is the truth in the bible in all this? No need for that when they are running on a platform of new revelation!

Paul described the how true teachers of the word act. 2 Cor. 2:17 “ For we are not, as so many, peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ.” “not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth” ( 2 Cor 4:2)

For all of you on the net that are discerning, keep speaking. Don’t let anyone stop you doing this biblical command. Keeping growing in the truth that will train you to be sensitive to error. Don’t become discouraged from those who are pastors or in ministry for a long time and tell you how to do it their way; that you are wrong.

Eventually this is going to end badly for many of the youth involved, when they realize that they were misled by a mixture of modern Gnostics, and Mystics that used the Christianity of the Bible with their false prophecy.

Prov. 16:20 He who heeds the word wisely will find good, And whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he.”

Once understood through Gods Word they will not want anything to do with them. Christianity will either thrive by the truth or not survive by the majority of false teaching, as the deception takes place everywhere.
