They say, “To pray, ‘Let Your will be done,’ nullifies your prayers;” you can incubate your own miracles!
These ‘Faith’ Teachers ‘overturned’ Jesus’ example of true faith by ‘changing’ the very essence of faith into the power of positive confession; used for personal and temporal wealth and ease in the here and now. So, they even allege one ‘nullifies’ your prayers by saying, “Not my will, but Your will be done.” They believe God gave all His ‘authority’ to them to act as independent gods, creating miracles as they please. As ‘God Himself in the flesh,’ their prayers consist of telling God how to fulfill their will! They also have the power to incubate their own miracles! So, who needs God, then?
What a scary scenario! Mere men, supposedly cleansed by the blood of Jesus, believing they are gods, who have the power to do everything as and how they please! [Read what Paul commanded concerning the continual transformation of the mind, to know the perfect will of God! – Rom. 12:1-2.]
The Charismatic/Pentecostal Movement modeled this witchcraft on the teachings of the Christian Buddhist, ‘David’ Yonggi Cho, father of the worldwide ‘cell-church’ system and his techniques of Visualization and Positive Confession. His formula to create your own miracles goes like this, Name it – “become pregnant with the desire by naming it aloud.” Frame it – “incubate it by visualizing it, or see it as a reality before your spiritual eye.” Then Claim it – “confess it until it materializes, despite all reality and feeling.”
‘Miracles’ are induced by hypnotism, auto-suggestion, and all kinds of Eastern Mysticism
While we must never submit to false spiritual authority, people think they must submit to a psychiatrist who swings a pendulum to induce the deep trance state of hypnotism, or they have to be physically tortured to be brainwashed. However, most of the Promise Keepers’ so-called ‘hyper anointed sermons’ and ‘miracles’ consist of occult techniques such as hypnosis and brainwashing, induced by suggestion, auto suggestion, positive confession, visualization, and ‘commanding’ their ‘personal angels’ to do their miracles. [God is the only One Who can command holy angels. In the Name of Jesus believers have spiritual authority over demons, but not over holy angels! Eph. 6:10-18; Mark 16:16-18.)] Obviously, all ‘miracles’ brought about by these techniques are demonically inspired, controlled, and executed. For instance, without defining their intension as such, televangelists sell their ‘anointed prayer-rags’ by the thousands, suggesting that buying ‘their unique anointing’ is more powerful than personal prayer to God. They also resort to mind-control by continually repeating the same controlling phrases to persuade people to submit to them. I.e., ‘You cannot be blessed if you do not tithe’ - which is a lie because in Christ, true believers are already fully blessed, (Gal. 3:10-14.)
Under the guise of the anointing of the Holy Spirit, leaders can induce mind-altering, hypnotic trances by repeating a word or a simple catchphrase over and over, (like hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah…) until the audience is susceptible to any type of suggestion. The occult equivalent of this is the trance-state of Yoga, where people breathe rhythmically, chanting “Ommmmm...” and then, under demonic power, they can do very strange, material-defying things such as walking on hot coals without burning, piercing themselves through without bleeding, etc.
None of these techniques can manifest ‘itself’ through so-called ‘brain power.’ The brain or mind, (which the Bible calls “the soul” or “the flesh,”) is a very complicated organ, which controls our physical bodies, consciousness, thoughts, intellect, will, and emotions. However, our brains do not have supernatural or spiritual power, and the brain itself can never ‘become spiritual’ or function in the spirit world, because the soul, (mind,) the human spirit, [‘heart,’] and the physical body are separate entities. Together, they form one living person, (1 Ths. 3:23.) That is why, while people are under the control of demons, it may seem that ‘brain power’ can bend spoons, while unseen demons are doing the work! To protect us from demonic control, God commanded us to be in control of our minds, or thoughts as far as possible. We must never deliberately ‘empty’ our minds because then demons can take control of us. We must focus our thoughts on Jesus and the truth of His Word, and ask His continual protection even while asleep, (1 Pt. 1:13; Rom. 12:2; Col. 3:2.)
The following occult terms are becoming Bible truth in many denominations while they are techniques used in Eastern mysticism and therefore products of the devil himself. ‘Centering prayer’ focuses on a so-called ‘sacred word’ while allowing the person to empty his or her mind to slip into ever deepening ‘prayer,’ ‘worship,’ or ‘meditation.’ ‘Prophetic prayer,’ is so-called “soaking” or “resting” completely empty-minded “in God’s presence” to allegedly “pray the very words of God Himself prophetically, while being “mindless conduits” between God and mankind.” Sozo Prayer is “a unique salvation or deliverance ministry through so-called Christian spirit guides or “personal angels,” placing those who are possessed, or allegedly “oppressed by the devil” into a trancelike state to lead them through emotional chaos to spiritual and emotional ‘inner healing,’ to find a ‘new experience with God.”
All these methods are Christianized Buddhist/Hindu/New Age witchcraft, which tries to substitute the anointing and work of the Holy Spirit, and the ministry of God’s holy angels, with counterfeit spirits.
To ‘birth’ a miracle or ‘victory,’ preachers use visualization and positive confession, shouting, “In Jesus Name, see yourself driving that white Mercedes!” Or, through continuous chanting, they make audiences rhythmically repeat phrases like, “I am… more than… a conqueror…” until stark-eyed people under the influence of Kundalini or serpent power jump enthusiastically to their feet, shaking their fists in a warlike manner, chanting, “I am… more than… a conqueror! I am… more than… a conqueror! I am...”
Preachers and audiences are violating God’s Word, which commands, “Do not use vain, [senseless occult] repetitions [and practices] as the heathen do….” Without testing the spirits behind this chaos, audiences surrender to the control of “ministers of Satan, who turn themselves into angels of light,” (2 Cor. 11:4-15.)
These ministers rob believers of God’s promise that all His sincere disciples already “have a [human] spirit of power,” (the true anointing of the Holy Spirit in their own human spirits.)
Thus, God expects them to “have a sound, [sober, sensible] mind [too]!” - (Mt. 6:7-13; 2 Tim. 1:7.)
Despite all God’s Scriptural warnings, at this level of the trance, preachers have prepared the audience to believe and execute any belief or action, which they wish to “impart” to them under the guise of the working of the Holy Spirit.
THE GOD OF THE BIBLE IS THE CREATOR, NOT A POSITIVE- CONFESSING MAGICIAN
Using occult practices such as Positive Confession, ‘faith’ teachers claim that they are merely imitating God, Who simply ‘spoke’ everything into existence; creating the universe and everything in it by His All-Powerful Word. They call this occult method of “birthing miracles” through the creative power of the spoken word, “Rhema.” Thus, they teach, there is nothing in the world they cannot ‘manifest’ by ‘speaking it into existence!’ They say, when God created the universe and everything in it, ‘Rhema’ operated without God moving a finger.
Bible truth contradicts this version of ‘Rhema,’ and teaches exactly how God created everything in the universe, including Adam and Eve, and all the animals and plants, by Personally making everything with His own hands! Scripture describes how God “made” the stars with His own hands. He Personally “formed” the earth to be inhabited. He “poured” the waters of the sea, “measured” the waters in the hollow of His hand; “marked out” the heavens, (the different layers of earth’s atmosphere) with a span, “calculated” the dust of the earth in a measure, and “weighed” the mountains on scales, (Gen. 1:6-7, 14-16; 20-21; 26-28; 2:7, 19. Gen. 2:21-25; Amos 5:8, Isa 45:18; 40:12-26; and Prov. 30:4.) The Book of Genesis meticulously tells us, “This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens… God decided, ‘Let there be a firmament…’ [so] God made the firmament… Then God [decided,] ‘Let there be lights…’ [so] God made the two great lights… ‘Let Us make mankind in Our image…’ [so,] male and female He created them... And the Lord God formed [or sculpted] man from the dust of the ground… Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast…” In fact, only Eve was created or made not from dust, but from part of Adam’s body!
The truth of God’s Word proves that the unscriptural doctrine of “Rhema” is blatant witchcraft, turning the Almighty, All-powerful, All-holy, All-present Creator God of the Bible into a kind of uninvolved, loveless magician. A magician is a performer, who conjures up spells by reciting an incantation and waving a magic wand and pouf! the magician supposedly ‘spoke’ a frog, rabbit, or whatever into existence! Yeah, sure – not without the trickery of an invisible backstage demon or two. Most importantly, Satan can never create life. He is but a mere creature of Jesus the Creator. All he has are lies and deception. He is in fact a very clever, slight-of-hand illusionist or magician, (2 Cor. 11:3-4; 14-15.)
The magicians of Pharaoh's court, who replicated the plaques of Egypt, were mere illusionists. They had no part in the meticulous, intelligent planning and making of whatever they supposedly ‘manifested.’
PETER WAGNER IS HEAD APOSTLE AND KNIGHT OF MALTA RICK JOYNER IS TOP PROPHET
Peter Wagner is the Head Apostle of the “Super anointed Supermen and Superwomen” of the Charismatic Movement Worldwide. One can therefore never exclude him from the Baphomet worshipping masonic orders that are growing in plain sight in this movement. When Paul Cain named the Promise Keeper’s “Manifest Sons of God, the New Breed” (of christs and gods,) we can be certain that Wagner was watching approvingly.
Rick Joyner is the Top Prophet of the Movement Worldwide, (2008.) He openly declares he is a Knight of Malta from the Roman Catholic, Masonic Jesuit Order. Unbelievably, during his meetings, Joyner openly recruits Jesus’ blood bought believers to join the ‘noble’ “Knights of Malta cause!” The most atrocious forms of witchcraft is going on in his ‘prophetic church,’ Morning Star Ministries. As the head of this Jesuit-controlled organisation, Joyner is directly responsible for the phenomenal growth in masonic sun/phallic worship among Pentecostal Charismatics.
Children of God must know that Jesus is not the ‘morning star’ or any other ‘star,’ which refers to the angels. “Morning star” refers to the light of Lucifer or Satan, the false light-bringer. Of course, masonic orders that infiltrate the churches all confess their sincerity to Christ, but it is not their confessions that make them true disciples of Jesus, it is their continual fruit or behaviour and what they really teach! In Promise Keepers circles, as everywhere else, it is a question of “show me your friends and I will tell you who you are.” Therefore, I say without a shadow of doubt that all the leaders of this movement belong to masonic orders, because they all support and teach these doctrines wholeheartedly. Non-masons and leaders truly committed to Jesus will never belong to secret societies, or teach and endorse masonic doctrines. They will know Paul warned in Rom. 1:32 that those who unrepentantly believe and teach lies “are deserving of death; not just they themselves, but also all those who approve of those who practice them!”
PROMISE KEEPERS: ‘NEW BREED’ OF ‘CHRISTS’ WHO ‘BECAME’ THE WORD AND THE LIGHT
Concerning the gatherings of Promise Keepers/Joel’s Army/Manifest Sons of God/Elijah Prophets in giant sports arenas, (which were, traditionally, temples for ritual blood sacrifice,) their ‘father’ Paul Cain said, “[God] is calling out a great host of men ready and willing to become christs in their homes: Promise Keepers. In grand, bold weeps, God is mustering an army [to change the whole world!]” This is the Reformation Doctrine; their ecumenical return to the Church of Rome. God will not change this world; it is destined for the fire, (2 Pt. 3:10.) God is into renewal and transformation, not into conformation to masonic/Roman Catholic controlled church systems, (Rom. 12:1-2.)
These leaders, of whom Jesus prophesied in Mt. 24:23-24 that many will come in His Name saying, “I am the christ,” ‘showing great signs and wonders to deceive [even the born again body of Christ,’] call themselves “Joel’s Army:” the “New Breed,” (or the “New Man” in pure masonic lingo,) who ‘became incorruptibly changed’ without Jesus’ visual return on the clouds. As so-called immortal ‘christs’ and ‘gods in the flesh,’ [‘manifest sons of God,’] they even allege they will not suffer physical death – or at least, live until they are 140 years old! In the guise of Jesus Christ Himself, they first introduced this ‘New Breed’ or New Man masonic jargon to the church when Todd Bentley and Paul Cain visited the Lakeland Revival to spread their prophecies, teaching, and chaotic Toronto ‘Blessing’ there.
However, Scripturally, real believers are “transformed by the renewing of their minds” through the truth of the Bible, that they “may prove [or know and do] the perfect will of God!” (Rom. 12:1-2.) Until Jesus returns for His sincere disciples, all those who died physically will ‘sleep in their graves, waiting for His return,’ (2 Ths. 4:13-18!) There is only One God and Christ, and His Name is Jesus. He shares His Divinity and holy throne with no one else.
The verse, which ‘makes’ them into ‘human manifestations of God’ or “God Himself in the flesh”
It never ceases to amaze what abusers of God’s Word can derive from a once-off verse, or a difficult-to-interpret snippet from the Bible. This is exactly what the Promise Keepers Movement did with their so-called “manifest sons of God” doctrine, which turned the whole Gospel upside down, (Rom. 8:18-27.) In the context of “all” Scripture, the relevant verse, (Rom. 8:19,) does not mean ‘the manifest sons of God’ are “people changing into God Himself, or into Christs in their homes.” In most translations this verse states, “…The revealing, [not the manifestation,] of the sons of God.” Doesn’t sound like there is much difference between ‘manifest’ and ‘revealing?’ However, where truth and error are concerned, the difference is huge! On the one hand, we have the uncontextual “visible materialization of the sons of God:” their supposed ‘change, or shape-shifting into christs before the return of Christ. On the other hand, we have the “revealing” or indisputable “shown, made known, disclosed” [children] of God… [and here is the real context:] when even “creation itself will be delivered from the bondage of corruption… [at the return of Christ,]” (verse 21.) In the context of what Scripture is really saying here “reveal” means, “made known, divulge, shown, or disclosed for everyone to see who were really the true saints of God,” That Day when Jesus returns to gather together the bodies of saints sleeping in the graves and the saints who are still alive, (1 Ths. 4:15-18; 1 Cor. 15:50-58.)
Romans 8:23-24, “We also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit… eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our [physical] bodies, for we are saved in this hope… [that Jesus will come to redeem us physically from this world, because we have already been redeemed spiritually at the moment of our personal rebirth through faith in Christ!]”
Strangely, their own footnote in the Spirit Filled Bible confirms the truth of this passage, “Physical creation will be redeemed at the consummation of our redemption because creation itself will also be delivered from the bondage of [physical] corruption [at the return of Christ] into the glorious liberty of the children of God, [whose physical bodies will then be transformed spiritually and raised incorruptibly,]” (Verses 19-21; 1 Cor. 15:42-44; 1 Ths. 4:16-18. )
“Firstfruits,” therefore, does not refer to the so-called “First Rain’ or ‘First Pentecost,’ (the so-called ‘first’ outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, and the “Second outpouring of the Spirit” though their anointing,) which is also known as ‘Second Rain.’ “Firstfruits” actually refers to God’s pledge to finally redeem our suffering bodies at the return of Christ. The Spirit Filled Bible’s Footnote states, “The Holy Spirit Himself is the Pledge of our full [and final] adoption as God’s children when our bodies are redeemed [at the return of Christ!] The metaphor of the firstfruits also suggests that the Holy Spirit and His gifts are the foretaste of the life to come [in heaven,] (Eph. 1:14.) We groan because although our spirits were saved by faith in Christ, our [souls or minds, and physical] bodies are still subject to pain and sin in this world. However, we look forward with hope (v. 24) to our resurrected bodies [at Christ’s return,] which will then be eternally free from frailty and sin, 1 Cor. 15:50-54.”
“Don’t read the Bible, Be the Bible!”
In the minds of these alleged ‘god’ men, people do not have to study the Bible to understand God’s will for their lives in this dark, deceitful world. The truth of God’s Word is not “the lamp for our feet and the light unto our path” anymore, and we do not have to “live from every Word that proceeds from the Mouth of God.”
Paul Cain stated, “He’s gonna perfect the Church so the Church can be the Image, be Him, and be His representation!” – [Tape: ‘My Father’s House’] He’s ‘gonna’ perfect ‘the church’ so they can be Jesus Himself? Every sincere, Scripturally obedient disciple of Jesus is already “complete in Him,” (Col. 2:10,) and will never become christs, [Jesus,] gods or angels themselves! Still, these teachers led millions to believe they have become gods and christs! Therefore, being ‘gods,’ they must be Jesus; be Christ, be the Word; be the Light, instead of studying God’s Word, obeying His Word, and preaching His Word! They actually allege, “You don’t have the Holy spirit living constantly in you, because you are God!”) Therefore, they have become the light itself and call it “the Nur;” a word also known by Muslims and other pagans as ‘the light’ itself. Nevertheless, these so-called ‘gods’ are not referring to God’s True Light, for only Jesus Christ Himself is The Light while all His sincere disciples carry and shine His Light: the truth of His Word in the power of His Spirit, which is the Truth, or Christ Jesus Himself, (Jn. 14:6.)
God is not “gonna perfect the church” either. Let the Word of God speak the truth concerning this witchcraft as well, “…He who [personally and sincerely] believes in the [Name, and personally accepts the complete atonement of] the Son of God has [present tense,] the witness in himself. He who does not believe, God has made him a liar, because he has not believed… that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; [perfect life; abundant life now and forever more;] he who does not have the Son of God does not have life... These things I have written to you… that you may know that you [already] have eternal life, [salvation, redemption and blessing,] and that you may continue to believe in [Him,]” (1 Jn. 5:5-13; Jn. 10:10.)
True believers also already have the full, abiding anointing of the Holy Spirit in them. 1 Jn. 2:20, 27, “You have [the] anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things [through His gifts, which He works through you.] The anointing which you have [present tense] received from Him abides [stays, dwells continually and constantly] in you…”
True Meaning of “The Glory”
The Biblical ‘glory of God,’ or in reality, the glory of God in and through us by His indwelling Holy Spirit, has nothing to do with Charismatic ‘glory.’ Their ‘glory’ is the supposed manifestation or shape-shifting of these leaders into immortal god-men, and working of their hyper-anointing, which produce incredibly scary and strange signs and miracles.
In the context of Rom. 8:18-27, the real “glory in us” is “the blessed hope of Christ’s return,” when He will deliver all His sincere believers bodily from this dark, decaying world, (1 Ths. 4:16-17.) Yet, in complete disobedience to the truth of God’s Word, these masonic “wolves in sheep’s clothing” are leading millions of people away from the truth of the Written Word, (the Logos,) because they themselves have allegedly ‘become’ the Spoken Word, (Rhema.) In addition, through their ‘hyper’ anointing, which has to pour continually “from above,” or outside them, they can ‘bring the glory down’ to create so-called ‘miracles’ such as unholy, chaotic laughter, uncontrollable howling, violent spinning, falling, shaking, allegedly even flying, etc. In the context of the real Gospel, not even one of these manifestations can be connected to the miracles of Jesus and His disciples - except in occult demon possession of some kind. More importantly, genuine believers do not constantly need spectacular, showmanship ‘signs’ and ‘wonders’ to confirm that God is working through them. In His authority, they ‘simply’ preach the truth of His Word as the Holy Spirit present them with opportunities to do so, and bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit under all circumstances, which will manifest the true Gifts of the Holy Spirit, and true signs and miracles, which glorify God, will follow them wherever they may go, (Mark 16:15-18.) Jesus warned in Mt. 12:39, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign [to glorify themselves,] and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah, [Jesus resurrection from the dead.]” And in Jn. 4:48, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will never [really and sincerely] believe.”
‘You are a chosen generation…’
There are few Scriptural truths, which preachers such as Paul Cain have not turned into Charismatic witchcraft. Turning ‘a chosen generation, a royal priesthood…’ into the pure witchcraft of the “New Breed of christs and gods” is another of their strange feats. According to them, the Promise Keepers’ ‘manifest sons of God’ and other branches are this special, ‘hyper anointed,’ ‘new or [specially] chosen generation,’ which executes their ‘worldwide end time revival,’ or the ‘restoration of the entire earth before Jesus’ return.’
May the Holy Spirit remind them of Jesus warning in Mt. 12:39 that “an evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign [for the wrong reasons…]” All those, who intend to do God’s will, hear the true Voice of the Holy Spirit, Who always leads His true disciples in the whole truth of God’s Word, because the “entirety of truth” is God’s only salvation, redemption and blessing for all those who sincerely accept and follow Jesus, (Jn. 7:17-18; 14:26; Ps. 119:160.)
As a result, God’s ‘chosen generation, holy nation, and royal priesthood…’ is Jesus’ body of obedient believers, saved, and completely redeemed and blessed by His full atonement in their place. False teachers and their associates “stumble, being disobedient to the Word… [while obedient, sincerely born again believers in Christ] are… His own special people, [not to rule as gods on earth, but] that they may proclaim the praises of Him Who called them out of darkness into His marvelous light…” (1 Pt. 2:8b-10.)
