For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. - Matthew 24:24
Gold dust, glory clouds and visits to heaven - coming to NE Wisconsin in October.
Joshua Mills is bringing his Catch The Fire conference to northeast Wisconsin, at a church that has also invited false teachers Todd Bentley and Patricia King. Mills and company will bring their signs, wonders and hypnotic, mind-numbing mantra-music designed to “bring you into God’s presence.”
Catch The Fire is growing internationally through New Apostolic Reformation signs and wonders churches like the one in Appleton, where this conference will happen in October. Members there frequently tell of tasting real manna that has fallen from the ceiling, and experiencing oil and gold dust clinging to their skin and clothing.
Catch The Fire is both a conference and a movement, birthed from the Toronto “outpouring” of the false revival in 1994. It is lead by John & Carol Arnott of Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship. If you’ve never seen anyone “slain in the spirit,” it is quite a spectacle and not at all the sober-minded worship that the Bible teaches.
From the Catch The Fire site:
Are you looking to experience and encounter the love of Jesus in a new way? Are you wanting to ignite passion within yourself? Do you want to burn with desire and fervency for Jesus? If you said yes to any of these questions, this annual Catch The Fire Conference is designed to be a place where you can meet with God as He draws you away, encounters you, renews your inner flame, restores your vision, revives your passion, and fascinates your heart.
The so-called ministry Extreme Prophetic is an example of the next generation of false signs and false wonders type "ministries".
As we said last summer when Patricia King brought her Glory School to this same church, and the year before when the church brought in Todd Bentley's Midwest Outpouring, it's a hard warning to hear, and we may sound mean or harsh. This is not our intention, as we share these warnings out of love for those who are being deceived. We know that those who have already made up their minds to attend will probably not heed our warning, but out of deep concern and love we must share this anyway. And we must ask that you at least consider the spiritual danger into which you wade. Participants who open themselves up to these foolish experiences are opening spiritual doors to the demonic. We will pray for you, but there is only so far that will go if you hear these warnings and smugly disregard the danger.
Ezekiel 3:17-19“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me. If I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, in order to save his life, that wicked person shall die for his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. But if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, or from his wicked way, he shall die for his iniquity, but you will have delivered your soul.
Ezekiel 33:6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
Col. 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.
Col. 2:18 Let no one disqualify you, insisting on asceticism and worship of angels, going on in detail about visions,puffed up without reason by his sensuous mind, 19 and not holding fast to the Head, from whom the whole body, nourished and knit together through its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God.
