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…”

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.

Bill Johnson Claims You Can Think and Live from the Right Hand of God


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…”

When Wolves Lead the Flock

When Wolves Lead the Flock

Today, Satan and his entourage of demonic helpers stand unchallenged in many church pulpits around the world. Deception is Satan’s most powerful weapon against believers and would-be converts. He cloaks himself in the liturgical vestments of the clergy while using smooth oratory to win over undiscerning believers to doctrines of demons. He is an accomplished speaker, liar and deceiver. He is the master of disguise. From the very beginning of creation, he is the enemy of our soul and has used deception to change the truth about God into a lie. His burning passion for deception and destruction is relentless. His tactics are deadly and carry the sting of eternal ruin. The church needs to learn and understand just how skillful he is at deceiving believers through false doctrines, half truths, and counterfeit spiritual experiences…

Signs + Wonders + Dollars = Wolf Tracks

Requiring a Sign

Benny Hinn is a pastor and evangelist known worldwide for his healing ministry. He is a best selling author and a household name among believers and non-believers alike. He is a true master at placing emphasis on personal experience during worship services. Love or hate him, Benny is a unique character unlike any we know. Hinn’s worldwide organization is big and depends heavily on “miracles, signs and wonders” to finances his healing ministry. While the faithful support his onstage antics and partake in falling under the anointing, others remain convinced he is a fraud and rank him with the other mega-church swindlers. While there are many issues with his ministry, perhaps most disturbing is the untold number of innocent people who travel long distances in hope of a miracle. In most if not every instant, these travel-weary believers return home having their hope give way to despair and their faith, in many cases, give way to doubt.

“I Command Organs to be Created!”

Joshua Mills is still up to the same old gold dust nonsense. Here he is in March at the Glory Conference in the Phillippines, deceiving the gullible sheep by getting covered in gold dust and trying to release creative and recreative(?) signs and wonders.

At the 45 second mark Mills says, “Right now I command organs to be created in your body!”
How did that go for you Joshua? Any success? Inquiring minds want to know. And why just organs? Why not arms and legs? Or fingers? How convenient. Those people can’t see organs, they are on the inside. Got any documented testimonies with x-ray follow up? And if God is releasing creative and recreative miracles, why is He always releasing the same old gold dust? It’s getting kind of repetitive. Why not try something more creative?
And by the way, if your command for new organs to be created didn’t work, doesn’t that make you a false prophet?

Morningstar Ministries’ Recent Healing Conference

Morningstar Ministries’ Recent Healing Conference
TBC Staff – EN

Mar 28 2013
[TBC: Rick Joyner's Morningstar Ministries recently held a Healing Conference and advertised the gathering with the following wording]:

HEALING CONFERENCE
Watch LIVE on MorningStarTV.com This Weekend!
March 21-23, 2013

“The emphasis of this conference is going to be deliverance, one of the most overlooked aspects of healing.” – Rick Joyner

Special Guests: Father Marc van Rossem, Dr. P.G. Vargis, and Aliss Cresswell

[TBC: Of the guests, Father Marc van Rossem is a Charismatic Catholic. He also does other engagements in which: "Fr. Marc Van Rossem from the Netherlands conducted this retreat, which led the retreatants into a deeper relationship with God [and] a strong focus on Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament which opened up our hearts to receiving the word that Fr. Marc spoke to us. Father Marc spoke on Healing and the Holy Eucharist and also Carthusian Sprituality: Finding God Inside the World.

“He shared with us how the example of the Desert Fathers can be relevant to us in our society. We must make time to spend in our “cell” (our time in prayer) to allow the Lord to change us and to enter into a deeper relationship with Him” (Newfoundland Catholic Renewal, On This Rock newsletter, Edition 5, 2007, p. 5)…

Visions of Winnie the Pooh and a Field of Dreams?

Who is having visions of Winnie the Pooh and a field of dreams?

“Listen! Our spiritual eyes can be found in the imagination. I believe that we can have Holy Ghost, sanctified fantasies….

Recently I heard the Holy Spirit say, “If you build it they will come,” and I remembered the movie Field of Dreams. As that well-known line came to my memory again and again, I kept thinking, if we dream it they will come, or if we’ll dream bigger and if we’ll be released to dream, they will come. There is something important about believers birthing and bringing forth – calling forth those things that be not as though they were through dreams – that paves the way for the unsaved to come to Jesus Christ. I’ll speak more about the field of dreams later.
There is an invitation in the spirit right now to dream with God, to lift our vision higher… Remember, God is retrieving dreams; He’s redeeming prophetic promises that go back even hundreds of years.”

BENNY HINN’S SON ARRESTED FOR ASSAULTING MAN DURING BRAZIL EVENT, “LARGE SUM OF MONEY” MEANS NO CHARGES PRESSED

Evangelist Benny Hinn is known for his massive “healing” crusades which are held all over the world. Most recently, Hinn traveled to Brazil, where Benny Hinn Ministries (BHM) reports that “an amazing revival” is taking place.
During the 16 February crusade in Manaus, however, it is reported that Benny Hinn’s son, Joshua, was arrested, along with two of Hinn’s bodyguards, for assaulting a deaf man who tried to approach the stage …

Warning – Bill Johnson and Bethel Church

Warning – Bill Johnson and Bethel Church

by Andrew Strom
January 23, 2013

I am really hoping to make this the last of this type of article for awhile. Some people think I “love” putting out this stuff. But I honestly wish it would all go away, so we could get on with the ‘real’ work of building the kingdom.

However, Bill Johnson is doing such damage to the Body of Christ around the world that I simply cannot stay silent. In New Zealand (where I am currently) he holds a huge Conference once a year called “Manifest Presence”. This is amost certainly the biggest and most influential Christian conference in the whole country. And likewise in other nations, such as UK, Australia, Singapore, and many others. His influence is enormous.

Bill Johnson is a very charming man…

We Should Not Be At All Surprised

We Should Not Be At All Surprised

by James Jacob Prasch
Sept 27, 2012

Mark Stibbe, the UK proponent of Todd Bentley and every other deception based on neo-Gnostic mysticism and heresy, has been publicly reported to have abandoned his wife and children after promoting Todd Bentley who did the same. Stibbe had been leader of St. Andrews Chorleywood in the UK from where he and David Pytches promoted the Toronto counterfeit and the Kansas City false prophets including the homosexual alcoholic Paul Cain and sexual predator Bob Jones. After promoting Todd Bentley, Stibbe left St. Andrews to head a trust that supposedly is established to combat the problem of fatherless children. Ironically, but not surprisingly, in imitation of his hero Todd Bentley – Mr. Stibbe has gone into the enterprise of promulgating the problem. We should not be surprised.

The only thing of Christ that I have ever seen come out of St. Andrews are the godly believers who left it and its sister mental asylum Holy Trinity Brompton in utter disgust in response to the command of Christ in Revelation 18:4.

Now, the American neo-Gnostic and emergent church guru Brian McLaren who partnered with Rick Warren to forward and promote the book “The Emergent Church” by Dan Kimball has performed the same sex marriage ceremony for his homosexual son in Washington D.C. in the name of his Emergent Evangelicalism. According to Romans 1, both father and son are destined for eternal damnation unless they repent. But as with Mark Stibbe, when we observe the actions of Brian McLaren – once again, we should not be surprised.

Todd himself is unfazed. I am assuming that he is the one that posts on the “Fresh Fire USA” page on Facebook–it sounds like the way he expresses himself– and today, there is a post that his Norway crusade is going well. “National media reported a favourable story.” he posted.

But earlier on, he continued to be perturbed at the ban that prevents him from coming to Britain…”

British MP seeks to block B.C. evangelist’s entry

A controversial Canadian evangelist who attracted a huge U.S. following in 2008 before his sudden fall from grace is now under fire in Britain ahead of a planned tour that one London-area MP claims could bring physical harm to unwitting Christians in search of a faith-healing experience.

Todd Bentley, a 36-year-old preacher from Abbotsford, B.C., gained international attention four years ago when the charismatic sermoniser — heavily tattooed and a recovered drug addict — led a series of old-time Christian revival meetings in Florida that drew as many as 8,000 people a night during the summer of 2008.

“The con man [or woman] (or wolf in sheeps clothing) will look you straight in the eye and lie to you, telling you he’s a doctor if that’s what you need to hear – or a lawyer, or a police officer, or a businessperson….A con artist looks like a mother, a grandmother, a priest, a banker, an insurance salesman, a trustee, a photographer, an executive, a policeman, a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, a mechanic, a craftsman, a diplomat, a foreign dignitary, a student. A con artist looks like me, a con artist looks like you….All in all, the con artist is a master psychologist. He is a psychological illusionist, able to convince anyone to viscerally believe in his illusions. (Chuck Whitlock, Chuck Whitlock’s Scam School, Macmillan, New York, NY, 1997, page 20).

Televangelist in Maryland Gets 27 Months for Fraud

A Maryland pastor and longtime televangelist, Robert J. Freeman, a.k.a Dr. Shine, is going to jail for 27 months and was ordered to pay $630,000 to four church members. The Washington Post reports that the ‘Gods Top Gun of deliverance’ pastor lied to bankruptcy courts and hid the church’s assets in order to avoid paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in debts.

Freeman, 56, also convinced church members to take out loans for his multiple cars and $1.75 million waterfront home with five fireplaces, a jet-ski lift and two four-car garages. When the church could not cover the bills, church members were on the hook for the debt, and in some cases lost their homes and jobs.
