keeping a watchful eye on the wolves

false prophets

While Some Shepherds Watch Their Flocks

While some shepherds watch their flocks, others invite hirelings and wolves in.

On Dec 31, 2014, the New Year is being brought in to Canada by Todd Bentley.

It’s almost that time of year again! Todd Bentley is coming to Windword to help us bring in the New Year. This will be a powerful night full of worship and prophetic words over 2015.

Then, the false prophetic will continue in a New Years Conference at Windword, Jan 2-4. The announcement says:

Let’s continue bringing in 2015 strong! This New Years Conference is the perfect time to solidify everything that was proclaimed in the New Years Eve Service and to make new proclamations of what we expect 2015 to hold in store for us. We will have powerful words from Todd Bentley, Brent Borthwick, and Nolan Clark! So whether you had a good year in 2014 and want to make sure this next year is just as good, or you want to totally change your life in 2015…you need to come out to this conference. Let’s jump start 2015 for the Kingdom of God!

The Five Most Disturbing Things About a Benny Hinn Miracle Service

The Five Most Disturbing Things About a Benny Hinn Miracle Service

There are a lot of things you should try at least once in your life — skydiving, eating some exotic delicacy, traveling alone. Let me give you one thing not to add to that list: attending a Benny Hinn Holy Spirit Miracle Service.
I recently went to one in New York. Before going, I knew little about Hinn — a man who’s worth some $42 million — other than that he’s a big-deal televangelist among countless charismatic Christians. As someone who’s fairly unfamiliar with that sphere of Christianity, I was mostly just wary of being in a crowd of people speaking in tongues and being slain in the Spirit.
But that turned out to be the least uncomfortable thing about the service. What did happen was so much more upsetting, difficult, and unnerving. If you ever go, here are five unsettling things you’ll experience . . .

Wolves in Serpent’s Clothing

Be careful little sheep who you follow . . .

One More False Teacher at ‘One Thing’

IHOP announces their replacement for Joyce Meyer:

We are thrilled to announce that Reinhard Bonnke will be joining us for Onething 2014!

Reinhard Bonnke is known as one of the most powerful evangelists of all time. Hundreds of thousands of people attend his gospel crusades in Africa; in the last ten years, over 53 million people have committed their lives to Jesus in his meetings. Miracles and signs and wonders of all kinds follow Reinhard’s preaching.(Source)

Rick Joyner on Ebola

No scripture supports the following statement by Rick Joyner …

“I think everyone of God’s people are supposed to be able to enter into the heavenly realm and then to return with evidence of heavens reality and authority over everything on earth….”

Like Ebola and ‘regions of radiation’ . . .


Christians Dancing with Wolves?

“More and more professing Christians are uniting with wolves in sheep’s clothing. Likewise, wolves and wolverines are joining forces with wolves from different wolf packs. The pack is growing. It’s getting stronger – and they’re cunning! False teachers now play a major role in the Christian community. As I mentioned above, in order to transform society into the kingdom of God on earth, wolves and wolverines must control things, such as entertainment; government; education; business/economy; media; and family – they’re heavily involved in pro-family organizations.”

- Marsha West, The Prosperity Priestess and the pied pieper of IHOP

Some of the names referred to in the above article include . . . Joyce Meyer, Mike Bickle, IHOP, Kansas City Prophets, and Francis Chan. Read it here:

Tracking the False Teachings of Bill Johnson

Bethel’s Bill Johnson: “Jesus was so empty of Divine capacity…”

Bill Johnson is an effective purveyor of kenosis, the heretical teaching that Christ operated on earth solely as a man, with no “Divine capacity” whatsoever. Every miracle, every healing that Christ performed, according to Johnson, came about through the power of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, Johnson teaches, we can all perform healings and miracles, since we also have access to the Holy Spirit.
Thus Johnson’s kenosis doctrine serves to reduce the biblical Christ and elevate man. As Bob Dewaay points out:
“Jesus is no longer unique, but only a special enlightened one who could lead the way to many such enlightened ones in the future. Thus we have a New Age Christ.” [1]
Kenosis comes from a misunderstanding of Philippians 2:7: …but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. . .

Angel Tales or Wolf Tales?

JAMES GOLL’S ANGEL VISITATIONS, ORBS, AND NEW AUDIBLE PROPEHCY FROM “JESUS”

Warning: This is quite possibly the most demonic video program I have ever seen, and I don’t say this lightly.

I was scrolling through my news feed and saw this “By His Stripes We Are Healed” headline on WND, where It’s Supernatural’s host Sid Roth airs a popular video report. Today Roth introduces us to a seer and prophet James Goll, who claims Jesus Himself taught Goll how to heal.

“The first prophecy I ever heard came out of my own mouth,” Goll begins, as Roth excitedly probes him about his own testimony before asking about Goll’s latest vision…

Ecstatic Sheep?

Ecstatic Sheep?

Have you read this book called Ecstatic Prophecy by Stacey Campbell?

This book’s foreword is written by Bill Johnson and it is endorsed by various voices of the false prophetic movement such as James Goll, and Heidi Baker of the recent strange fish prophecy. . .

On page 29 of Ecstatic Prophecy (which you can find here), Campbell writes that Ecstatic prophecy, to quote David Aune (professor of theology at Loyola University of Chicago), is a form of possession trance. The physical possession, she writes, is as real as the spiritual possession, sometimes occurring against or above the prophet’s will. She then goes on to say that Christian mystics through the ages have experienced such visible ecstasy as hers, in the form of drunkenness, jerks, transports and violent shaking.

But the Bible teaches that the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets (1 Cor. 14:32). This means that a Christian is not so overwhelmed by prophecy that they writhe and jerk as in demon possession. When the Spirit of God moves upon us, we are still in control of how to exercise our spiritual gift. We surrender to the prompting and power of the Holy Spirit in obedience. He does not control us and embarrass us, like a demon would, but guides and directs us in a manner that always glorifies Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit will not overtake and make his children shake and give crazy prophecies that don’t come true, for which we must later apologize.

Shame on the wolves in sheep’s clothing who teach the sheep falsehoods about the gifts from the Good Shepherd who loves them. The Father gives good and perfect gifts to his children, not destructive ‘gifts’ of drunkenness, jerking, and violent shaking. The Bible tells us so, as in Luke 11:13, Matthew 7:11, and James 1:17. Dear sheep, please read the Bible to discern His gifts, not books written and endorsed by false prophets.

False Prophet Jones Dies

NAR Prophet Bob Jones Dies

Bob Jones, a prominent prophet in the New Apostolic Reformation movement, died Friday, February 14.

Jones’ prophetic words, given over four decades, influenced many leaders in the New Apostolic Reformation movement, including Mike Bickle, founder of the International House of Prayer (IHOP) in Kansas City, Missouri. Bickle details Jones’ influence on the history of IHOP in a video posted on the IHOP web site.

In the video, Bickle refers to Jones as “a very important prophetic man, at least in my life, and in the early days of this movement.” Bickle describes how Jones prophesied to him, in 1983, that God was going to raise up worldwide a young adult prayer movement led by prophetic singers and musicians in Kansas City. Jones claimed to have had 100 “open visions” giving him revelation about this movement.

Though Bickle was, at first, skeptical of Jones–and even wondered if Jones was a false prophet–he became convinced that Jones was a true prophet when Jones accurately predicted a snowfall on March 21, 1983, after several weeks of unseasonably warm weather…

Tracking Another False Prophecy

You may say in your heart, ‘How will we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?’
“When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him. Deuteronomy 18:21,22

For example:

The revival that Todd Bentley predicted for Fresno is now overdue. By perhaps 12 years but at least 10 months

Todd Bentley’s Failed Prophecy

Speaking of testing the wolves prophets…

Do you know that Todd Bentley made a prophecy last September about a big revival that never happened?

“And the Lord told me ‘A great revival is about the break out in Finland. It’ll be… (cheers) Listen! The conversions in Finland will be like [Charles Finney. The conversions in Finland will be like Finney….and I saw almost like an atomic explosion of glory come down over Finland and it started spreading into other places, missionaries going out of Finland into, Eastern Europe, Estonia, Latvia. other countries…”

Responses to the issues that we and others have raised have to date been non-existent. So to make some of our issues a bit more focused for followers of William Branham, we would like to request a response to the following challenge:

The Test

This is a test for anyone that is a follower of the message of William Branham. Please provide us with an unambiguous prophecy made by William Branham that was recorded publicly (i.e. we can verify on a tape) and that was later fulfilled in a clear manner. We will publish any such prophecy and its fulfillment on our website…

Fresh Fire or Strange Fire?

Fresh fire?


[‘Fire Of God’ 2013, Todd Bentley in South Africa, 2 months ago]

Or strange fire?


[In the “fire tunnel” with Todd Bentley in South Africa]

“And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.” Leviticus 10:1


Look what Bill Johnson is Feeding the Sheep Now

If you want to read how…

Bill Johnson is clearly teaching the manifest sons of God doctrine (MSoG). Individuals attain this MSoG status of “ascended lifestyle” (aka “Throne life”) through “intimacy with the Father”, using methods akin to the centering prayer and contemplative prayer of Eastern religions and the New Age / New Spirituality (as well as 2nd century Gnosticism). This will ultimately result in the ability to both live and think from the Throne of God, while yet remaining on earth (with a “renewed mind”). Such a ‘believer’ can ‘think from the Throne’ as they are literally – in a statement of utmost blasphemy – at the right hand of God, as per Johnson. This version of MSoG has a parallel with occult doctrine, with the fully manifested son / Ascended Master possessing the ability to live in both the heavenly and earthly realms simultaneously.

From Wolf Howl to Wolf Growl – Who’s Not Laughing Now?

Not Laughing Now
by Phil Johnson

Rodney Howard-Browne, self-styled “Holy Ghost Bartender,” has taken notice of the Strange Fire conference sponsored by Grace to You (October 16-18, 2013). He seems unnerved by the prospect that twenty-first-century charismatic phenomena are going to be examined in light of Scripture. Howard-Browne’s trademark giddiness has gone missing. Recently, he wrote this stream-of-consciousness rant on his Facebook page:

There is coming a massive attack on the Pentecostal/ Charismatic movement by a group of individuals that don’t believe in the power of the Holy Spirit today – these men do not believe in speaking in tongues or the gifts of the spirit – they think that because of excesses in the church that they have a right to write off the fastest growing sector of Christianity – over 800 million in the earth today…

How to Spot a Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing

“Have you ever heard the saying “a wolf in sheep’s clothing”? I have heard it a couple of places. First, many years ago I heard one of Aesop’s Fables which talked about a wolf that put on a sheep skin so that he could fool the shepherd into believing he was a lamb. Then when the shepherd locked the flock behind the gate at night the wolf thought he was clear to eat all the sheep he wanted. To his surprise the shepherd returned to the flock that night to gather meat for the next day. The wolf in sheep’s clothing was killed as one of the sheep. You see the saying “wolf in sheep’s clothing” simply means someone who is pretending to be something they are not.
Years later I heard this concept in another place –The Bible. Jesus warns against wolves in sheep’s clothing…”
