Here is the truth about the “latter rain” or continual “outpouring of the Holy Spirit like at Pentecost.”  [From the  Pentecostal Spirit Filled Bible 1991 — beware all new, totally corrupted translations.]  Zech. 10:1, “Ask the Lord for rain in the time of the latter rain.  He mill make flashing clouds and give showers of rain, grass in the field for everyone…” Footnote, “...God controls the rain, even in the time of the latter rain, (spring,) when we assume there will be sufficient [rain for the harvest,] we must still ask Him to send sufficient rain.  Spiritually, only God can send sufficient blessings and power to enable one to mature in Christ.  We must ask for [our maturing in Christ] not merely assume it,” (See 1 Jn. 5:20,27.)  It is clear that Pentecostalism abuses Scripture to link this verse to their “continual outpourings of the Spirit.”  If they so blatantly lie to us about one verse,  they lie to us about everything.        

From all the churches I have studied thus far, the one that breaks my heart is the Pentecostal Movement.  They are constantly “evolving” into greater Charismatic chaos as they continue to experience so-called “new outpourings of ‘the holy spirit.’”  Still, no Scripturally born again believer can say these people, since they started Pentecostalism in 1901, did not preach the core of the Gospel to make disciples for Christ.  (This was the so-called “First Wave” of Pentecost, or their alleged “recovery” of the “lost” manifestation of speaking in tongues.”)  They know the Scriptures and how to praise and worship God.  Yet, obedience to the contextual truth of God’s Word  was never enough for them. 

Paul seriously stated, “...Do not think beyond what is written… [and] do not boast beyond measure, but within the limits of the sphere which God appointed you…” (1 Cor. 4:6; 2 Cor. 10:13.)  But to supposedly “save the whole world through a rising global revival,” they assume ‘more and more’ spiritual power, authority and so-called ‘revelation knowledge,’ than God had revealed in His Word.  So, they became the great, ever-evolving, end-time, ecumenical danger, which Jesus warned about in Mt. 24:24, and throughout Scripture. 

Growing in “lawlessness,” they are currently “experiencing” their “Fourth Wave,” or “fourth ‘holy spirit’ outpouring” through Charismatic Hermeneutics, or doing with God’s Word as they please.  This officially started in the year 2000, when they supposedly stepped into their “fourth Pentecost.”  Essentially, Charismatic Hermeneutics means, “broad or general, non specific interpretations of Scripture.”  And so, “Hermeneutics” explain exactly why they say, “Don’t read the Bible; be the Bible!”  In other words, “Do what thou willst is the whole of the law.”  As this is the creed of the Church of Satan, one may seriously ask, “Is the Pentecostal/Charismatic Movement Christianized Satanism?” 

With immense sadness, in the light of contextual Scripture, I will prove that nearly everything, apart from the core of Jesus’ Gospel, which they began with, is twisted, taken out of context, and extremely false!  And so is everything they teach concerning the end-time, as defined by their New Apostolic Reformation, or Reconstruction dogma.  They are guided by Roman Catholic/Reformed Preterism and Dominionism, which do not connect them to Biblical Truth, but to the ecumenist Church of Rome with its dreadful Kingdom Now dogmaAdditionally, masonic orders have infiltrated them completely.  If it could be that they were not established by masonic orders, they are now fully under masonic control. 


When I came to Christ in 1988, their passionate meetings were orderly and about moral holiness, repentance from worldliness, and gathering riches in heaven.  Today, they assume extra-Scriptural “dominion” over every area of life; political and secular life as well.  They say “they will do what Jesus would not or could not do.”  Before Jesus’ return, they will reform and reconstruct this physical world into God’s physical Kingdom on earth.  What’s more, they will do it all through the so-called “reinstated,” Old Testament, mediating priesthood, (see the truth 1 Tim. 2:5-7,) and the “lost” superpower of the first apostles: their “hyper anointed” Promise Keepers’ Joel’s Army. 

All this is impossible, as the Old and New Testaments are two completely different Covenants and dispensations!  What’s more, nothing of either the Spirit’s gifts or the ministry of the first apostles were “lost.”  Because the Roman Catholic Church systematically smothered The Way’ or Jesus’ first assemblies of believers in Mary worship, the Spirit simply wrote “Ichabod” over the church system.  Nonetheless, through the ages, true believers served Christ as His persecuted, blood-saved, Spirit indwelt, Scripture-obeying, holy saints, (Heb. 8:13; Acts 7:49; 9:2; 22:4.)   

The Pentecostal Movement systematically lost sight of basic, New Covenant truth.  Hence, they actually lost The Real Truth, Light, and Way, Jesus Himself, Who is the Only Way to God the Father in heaven, (Jn. 14:6; 2 Cor. 11:14, Kjv.)  Jesus unmistakably declared in Jn. 18:36, “My [Spiritual] Kingdom is not of this world.  [If My Kingdom were of this world,] My servants would [physically] fight so that I should not be  delivered to the Jews...” 

Therefore, through Charismatic Hermeneutics, they now proclaim they are the Bible.  Most of their preachers do not even open a Bible during church meetings.  The chaos that rule their meetings through their “broad” and personal interpretations of Scripture is indescribable.  They boldly declare they are the bible, christs, and “little gods.”  They allege, “When you only do what is written in the Bible, you are “legalistic” and “put God in a box.  Not everything God does is in the Bible.” Yet, 1 Jn. 2:4-5 unchangeably commands, “He who says, ‘I know Him’ and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.  But whoever keeps His [true, contextual] Word, truly, the love [and truth] of God is perfected in Him.  By [obeying God’s Scriptural truth,] we know that we are in Him.” 

Their problem is, if they were to obey God’s Scriptural truth, they would not be able to keep on “evolving” in their ‘hyper anointing’ and “spiritual superpowers.  The “fruits” of such insolence towards God’s Holy Word are gross violations of His commandments.  Their meetings are all about spiritual manifestations and speaking together in tongues.  (And I do experience the manifestation of the Scriptural Gifts of the indwelling Spirit.) Thus, they manifest “untested” spirits that drive them into raging, uncontrollable madness, (1 Ths. 5:21; 1 Jn. 4:1-4.)  Instead of going crazy in church, they must obey the Scriptures, which teach, “If anyone speaks in a tongue, let there be two or at the most three, each in turn, and let one interpret.  If there is no interpreter, let him keep silent in the meetings…  Let two or three prophesy and let the others judge [if it is from God...] The spirits of the prophets [and everyone else] are subject to [themselves.]  For God is not the author of confusion but of peace,” (1 Ths. 5:21; 1 Jn. 4:1-14; 1 Cor. 14:29-33.) 

Prophesying against the chaos of the Pentecostal/Charismatic Movement as a whole, Jesus said, “I have told you beforehand… [beware of] false christs [“super anointed ones;” ‘christ’ means “anointed one,”] and false prophets, who will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive even [born again believers...]” 

Jesus also prophesied the outcome of this Movement in Mt. 7:21-14.  He stated, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the [Scriptural] will of My Father in heaven.  Many will say to Me in That Day, ‘Lord, Lord,’ have we not prophesied, cast out demons, and done many wonders in Your Name?  And then I will say to them, ‘I never knew you.  Depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!” 


Roman Catholic canonization of ‘saint’ worship, and the familiarity, which the Vatican bred between their church members and their deceased ‘spiritual ancestors’ instead of relying on Jesus Himself, is sheer idolatry.  This Roman idolatry permeated Protestant denominations as well through the unrepentance of Reformers such as Luther and Calvin

This is why even the much revered ‘Protestant’ King James Version of the Bible still calls the Book of Revelation “The Revelation of Saint John the Divine.”  By God’s grace, later translations call this Book, “The Revelation of Jesus Christ.”  However, masonic Knight of Malta Kenneth Copeland and the rest of the  Charismatic Hermeneutics crew such as Benny Hinn, firmly attached themselves to the Vatican to bring their members under the pope’s control.  Thus, they also accepted the pagan ‘logic’ of Theosis; (Christian gods.)  They reckon, if God is the personal Father of His believers as the Bible teaches, they cannot merely have God inside their born again ‘hearts’ or human spirits, they must be gods themselves.  So, Copeland alleges, “When I read in the Bible where God tells Moses, ‘I AM,’ I say, ‘Yah, I AM too!” 

Jesus did not say in Jn. 10:34-36 that Jews and Christians are ‘special anointed christs and gods.’  Copeland and Company’s doctrine of Theosis is a great deception.  To ‘prove’ this claim, they quote Jn. 10:34-36, where Jesus said to the Jews, “Is it not written in your law, I said, ‘You are gods?’ If He called them gods, to whom the Word of God came and the Scripture cannot be broken… [how can you] say I blaspheme, because I said, I am the Son of God?’”  But Paul, proclaiming salvation only through the complete atonement of Jesus Christ, asked in Rom. 3:9-26, “Are we [Jews] better than [the non-Jewish Gentile nations?]  Not at all.  For… both Jews and Gentiles are all under sin… as it is written: ‘There is none righteous, no, not one…”  Everyone without Jesus is in a fallen, spiritual position or state of spiritual death without God.  Being born again through faith makes us temples of the Spirit, not “little gods.” 

What was Jesus saying to those venomous “brood of vipers,” [Mt. 23:33,] the Jewish temple masters, the Sanhedrin, who always twisted and corrupted the Scriptures to ‘prove’ their false doctrines? (Mark 7:13; Mt. 15:6-9; Col. 2:8.)  In the context of Jn. 10:31-39, Jesus never proclaimed the Jews ‘gods,’ as in ‘deified humans!’  The argument in Jn. 10:34-36 began when Jesus told the Pharisees in Jn. 10:26-31, “You do not believe [that I am the Son of God, and thus God Himself, Col. 2:9,] because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you.  My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me… [because] I and My Father are One.”  The Jews then took up stones again to stone Him. 

As the Jews again attempted to silence Jesus’ call to repentance from Judaism, Jesus answered them according to the statement “you are gods” in Ps. 82 — which is a proclamation of God’s judgment over corrupt judges, metaphorically called ‘gods.’  This means, because judges have absolute power in court, symbolically, their sentences are ‘cast in stone.’  A judge’s sentence was as irreversible as the decision of a ‘god.’ 

In the context of all Scripture, Ps. 82 states, God, the Supreme Judge, judges among the judges and asks, “How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? [You must] defend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy… [You should have been as wise as gods because you have such great authority over the people,] yet you do not know, nor understand... Yet, I said, ‘[Your judgments] are [as mighty on earth] as gods, therefore all of you [should have been as righteous as] children of the Most High.  But [because you are corrupt judges,] you shall die [in your sin] like [all the other sinful] men…’” 

Those Jews knew exactly what Jesus was saying.  They knew He was not deifying them; Jesus was judging them.  Thus, aligning themselves with those corrupt judges of Ps. 82, proves exactly the opposite of what Charismatic “hyper anointed ones” pretend to be. 


The ‘latter rain revival,’ or so-called “continuous outpourings of the ‘holy spirit’” to bring “greater and greater revival,” is just another form of the Kingdom-Now-here-on-earth doctrine.  Their ‘revival’  began through their so-called ‘First New Pentecost’ with the establishment of Pentecostalism in 1901.  Once saved through faith in Christ, they splashed from Pentecostalism into their “Second Wave” or “second outpouring of the ‘Spirit’” into Charismaticism during the 1960s.  From there, during the 1980s, the “Third Wave” of Neo-Charismaticism crashed over them.  Essentially, this means, since they began their utterly controlling “Third Wave” of “health, wealth, and success” in the late 1970s, they “determined their own reality.”  Hence, they began to focus entirely on earth and not on heaven, (2 Cor. 11:4 &14.)  This is why Benny Hinn yelled, “If I hear one more time about heaven…  How is was and how it’s going to be…  I will get a holy-ghost machine gun and blow your head off!”  Charismatic Hermeneutics, which evolved from Neo-Charismaticism, is now the Fourth Wave or ‘Fourth Pentecost,’ (through another “new outpouring of their ‘holy spirit,’”) which empowers their ‘mediating’ christ or ‘Elijah spirit;’ the crux of the entire Charismatic Movement

What happened to the Holy Spirit’s blood-bought, believing temple of the Only Pentecost, as described in Acts chapter 2?  That wonderful Day, the Holy Spirit came to indwell sincere believers for the first, and only time under Jesus’ New Covenant, until That Day when He returns, (Mt. 28:19-20.)  Where are the New Testament Scriptures to support this ‘other first, second, third, and fourth Pentecost” doctrine?  What’s more, Christ Jesus is, and always will be, the Only New Testament Mediator between God and man, (1 Tim. 2:5 and Heb. 1:1-3.)

The Latter-Day-Saints deception, one of Pentecostalism's rotten roots, taught an invalid ‘second Pentecost.’  (As said, this became Pentecostalism’s “First Wave” or the so-called “recovered Pentecost” of Acts Chapter 2, with the alleged “lost evidence” of speaking in tongues.) This dogma, now  in it’s Fourth Wave, is shamelessly driven by the masonic, “mediating” ‘christs’ and ‘gods’ of Charismatic Hermeneutics. 

Originally, so-called “second Pentecost” (Pentecostalism’s First Wave) was mightily disseminated by the Mormon apostle, Bruce R. McConkie, (1915-1985.)  McConkie was a member of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles of the Church of the Latter-day Saints.  When he turned to Mormonism, he taught, “The President of the Church is the mouthpiece of God on earth.  Thus saith the Lord: ‘Thou shall give heed unto all his words and commandments which he shall give unto you as he receiveth them, walking in all holiness before me: For his word ye shall receive, as if from mine own mouth, in all patience and faith.’” – [‘The Legacy of the Mormon Prophets,’ Stephen F. Cannon.]  McConkie sounds exactly  like the Old/New Apostle Movement of Edward Irving.  Today, McConkie still eerily echoes the dogma of Charismatic Hermeneutics, which is progressively losing even the last slithers of Scriptural Truth to grow in lawlessness. 

Additionally, It always amazes me how the god of these churches speaks through these prophets in high, old English, as if he doesn’t understand modern English.  However, the words that this god speaks, are not the words of the God of the Bible, Who stated in Heb. 1:1-2, “God, Who at various times and ways spoke in time past [during the Old Testament,] by the prophets, has in these last days [the New Covenant era] spoken to us by His Son, [the “entire Truth” of Scripture,] Whom He has appointed Heir of all things, through Whom also He made the worlds…”  

Where does God, in New Testament Scripture, say anything about such ‘hyper-anointed’ super-christs and “mediating’ prophets — except to warn His children against their deception and destruction?  (Mt. 24:23-28; 7:21-24.) 

Mormonism, as all other end-time cults, is just another Jesuit-Masonic creation, as its founder, mason Joseph Smith proved.  Devout Mormons argue the point, but Mormonism is a polytheist cult that proclaims, “God is only one of many gods.” Hyper-anointed Mormons also ‘become’ christs and gods, just as the ‘hyper-anointed’ clergy of the Pentecostal/Charismatic Movement.  Blasphemously, Mormons teach that ‘God is Father Adam,’ and ‘Jesus is the offspring of an angel.’ Their heaven is a place where men govern their own planets, keep many wives, and produce hoards of  ‘spirit’ children!


A Different Gospel

In 2 Cor. 11:4, 14 Paul explains the consequences of adhering to false doctrine.  He wrote, “As the serpent deceived Eve [by falsely “dividing” God’s Word and thus bringing her false light…] so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.  For if [they] come preaching a different gospel… another Jesus… and another [‘holy’] spirit… you [accept] it.”  This is exactly what happened in the Pentecostal Movement, and in all other denominations, where church doctrines instead of the Truth of God’s Word, (the Real Jesus of the Scriptures,) are followed. 

The Pentecostal/Charismatic Promise Keepers’ Joel’s Army, Manifest Sons of God, etcetera, all descend from the Latter Rain Revival Movement, not from the Bible.  They believe, (based on misinterpreted Old Testament prophecies,) in these last days, through them, “God is going to save the whole world.”  So, He is pouring out a “worldwide, superior-saving River of Anointing,” as the ‘inferior preaching’ of Jesus’ Gospel simply “could not do it.”  This was already bred into Pentecostalism in 1901, when the grandfather of Pentecostalism, Charles Fox Parham, through their Pentecostal father Joseph William Seymour’s Azusa Street revivals, broke new ground for their ongoing ‘Pentecost-evolution.’  Their “five-fold ministry” then sprang into action to allegedly “save the whole world through their super-anointing,” as if the Savior, Jesus of the Bible, still has not risen from the grave, and His True Word is also dead. 


The Truth about Eph. 5:18, “Do not be drunk with wine, in which is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit… 

In the context of the New Testament, not a single so-called ‘miracle’ of Charismaticism’s “Toronto blessing” manifested at Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit once and for all indwelt all His true believers through the ages, “until the end of this world,” under the Eternal, Indestructible, New Covenant of the Biblical Jesus, (Mt. 28:119-20.) 

The Spirit did manifest His gift of tongues That Day at Pentecost.  As all His other Scriptural gifts, this gift of Holy-Spirit tongues still “follows” sincere, born again believers in Christ, (Mark. 16:16-18.)  However, the Charismatic insanity in churches, (hysteric laughter, flying, falling, drunkenness, howling, etcetera,) was definitely not part of the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit on That Day of Pentecost, (Acts Chapter 2.)  Neither were these strange spiritual manifestations part of the meetings and ministrations of the first disciples — or of disciples through the ages. 

The Charismatic unholy, “drunken [debauchery] in the spirit” is definitely not from the Holy Spirit of the Bible.  The context of their favorite, grossly twisted verse, (Eph. 5:18-19,) which supposedly ‘proves’ that their chaotic drunkenness is the alleged “drunkenness in Acts chapter 2,” was firmly refuted by Jesus’ Living Word.  

           1.)  In Acts Chapter 2, there was no ‘drunkenness’ or any Charismatic ‘debauchery’ at God’s One and Only Outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.  After the Holy Spirit indwelt the disciples, bystanders “each heard the disciples speak” glorification to God “in [the bystanders’] own languages,” without ever learning to speak those languages, (Acts 2:11-13.)  [This does not nullify the ‘personal’ tongues that speak “mysteries to God,” 1 Cor. 14:2.]

           ¶¶¶ But some “mockers said, ‘They are drunk.’” So, to compare the chaos of Charismaticism to what really happened at Pentecost when the Spirit first indwelt His believers, is “mocking” God and the holy gifts of the Spirit!  

Þ Then, Peter and the other disciples proved that they were completely sober.  Acts 2:14:21, “Peter and the eleven stood up [to address this false allegation.  They must have been sitting down to stand up.  They were not falling over or rolling on the floor, slobbering over everybody, howling, screaming, and laughing their skulls off.] 

Þ Next, Peter firmly corrected them, saying, “These are not drunk as you suppose...  Raising his voice, [he then began to preach Jesus’ Gospel to them.  This is [the complete fulfillment of] what was prophesied by Joel…  ‘It shall come to pass in the last days, says God, [during the New Testament Covenant, which was inaugurated at Jesus’ death and resurrection,] that I will pour out of My Spirit on all [sincerely believing] flesh, (Jn. 3:16.)  Your sons and daughters… menservants [male ministers] and maidservants [female ministers] will prophesy… [Youngsters] will see visions.  [The elderly] will dream dreams...’” 

Þ This reaffirms Jesus’ prophecies in the Gospels.  For instance, ‘These, as all other born again disciples, (1 Ths. 5:23; Jn. 1:12-13,) are, and will henceforward be fully indwelt by the Holy Spirit “until the end of the world,”’ (Jn. 7:38-39; Mt. 28:19-20.)  ‘They now have God’s entire fullness of the Holy Spirit abiding [or permanently staying] in them,’ [1 Jn. 2:20; 27, Jn. 14:16-17,) because He “does not give His Spirit by measure,” [in part, or in successive portions,] (Jn. 3:34 Kjv.)  Therefore, the strange languages that these disciples began to speak after the indwelling of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost are “a sign to unbelievers,” (1 Cor. 14:22,) that “all the gifts of the Holy Spirit will follow them…”  (Mark 16:16-18.)  True believers will simply accept and believe Jesus’ promise, and manifest His gifts. 

           2.)  Paul also refuted the Charismatic “drunkenness” claim, (Eph. 5:18,) in the context of Eph. 5:15-20.  He commanded, “See that you walk circumspectly, [cautiously, warily, vigilantly, watchfully,] not as fools but as wise. [Does this commandment fit Charismatic chaos in any way?] ...Do not be unwise, but understand what the [true] will of the Lord is.  [His true will is as follows:]  Do not be drunk [at all, either] with wine, [drugs, or through the control of evil spirits like in the occult,] in which is dissipation, [debauchery, wickedness, sin, corruption…]  But [instead,] be filled with the Spirit, [not through ‘successive Pentecosts,’ but by continually following the indwelling Spirit into “all truth,” and giving Him complete control to lead you into a holy, God-pleasing life, Jn. 16:13.]  God “gives the Holy Spirit to those who obey Him, (Acts 5:32.)”

           ¶¶¶ The following verses describe the sober “fulfillment” of the Holy Spirit.  Eph. 5:19-21, “Speak to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; submitting to one another [in everything good, true, and Godly,] in the fear of God.”  

Þ God’s Holy Spirit always acts holy, and thus expects His disciples to act holy.  One of  His “fruits” is self-control.  Thus, He empowers.  He never overpowers like the gods of the occult do, (Gal. 5: 23; 1 Cor. 14:1-2; 31-33.) 

Þ Despite Jesus’ entire New Covenant as the holy evidence of the Holy Spirit, these Charismatic ‘five-fold’ ‘god-men’ have supposedly “found the ‘lost’ anointing of Paul and the other apostles,” as well as the “mediation of Old Testament prophets such as Elijah,” (the ‘Elijah spirit.’)  That is why, what Paul and the other apostles allegedly also could not do, these hyper-anointed supermen say, they are accomplishing
