keeping a watchful eye on the wolves

‘You Can Do Miracles’ and other Myths

At Solution Ministries, Ron and Marilyn Marquardt want you to know that…

God wants you to live your dreams. He desires that your desires are fulfilled…He desires you to enter into rest and an effortless lifestyle of success.

Fulfilled desires? An effortless lifestyle of success? Really? Where does God say that in the Bible?

“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.” John 15:18,19

“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1:2,3

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires” 2 Timothy 4:3

When they do evangelism training, rather than sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Marquardts teach their trainees to just share the ‘love of God’. They seem to have missed the fact that if people don’t hear the bad news (the wages of sin is death), they won’t know their need for the good news (that Jesus paid their wages).

They also teach their trainees that they can do miracles. Their ad, which can also be seen on the Elijah List, says: You Can Do Miracles: Free Classes at Spirit Training Seminars.

The truth is, you can’t do miracles. Only God can. Jesus said, “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 [bold mine]

‘See now that I, I am He,
And there is no god besides Me;
It is I who put to death and give life.
I have wounded and it is I who heal,
And there is no one who can deliver from My hand.

Deuteronomy 32:39

We must be discerning sheep, and learn to measure everything with Scripture. Even ‘nice’ wolves are still…wolves. Can you spot the wolves in sheeps clothing? If not, study your Bible and ask God to grant you discernment.

  1. He seems more like a used car salesman. I am so tired of hearing the same old lines from these people. As a refugee from Charismania, I know every catch phrase that will scratch the itching ears of people who thrive on this kind of nonsense. My prayer is that the scales will fall from the eyes of those who have been deceived by this (as I was for the first 12 yrs of being a Christian) and that our Lord would grant them discernment to make them flee from the doctrines of demons saturating this movement. Thank you for your website. I am noticing that although the internet has its dark side, it can also be used for good in exposing these wolves. Let’s continue..

  2. Jesus wants to meet us on Mount Calvary, we want to meet Him on Resurrection Road or Pentecostal Plaza. You can ONLY meet Jesus by first going to Mount Calvary, then you can head down to Resurrection Road!
