Todd White: Fabricating a Miracle?

Here is a quick video of Todd White telling two completely different versions of the same story. In the first segment he talks about the time he had to have knee surgery because he was NOT miraculously healed. In the second segment (from a video on his Facebook page last week) he tells the story with a 100% different ending! He claims his knee was miraculously healed on the day he was supposed to have it surgically repaired. 

Attention Todd White: Why don't you release the name of the "Jewish doctor" who observed your miraculous healing so he can verify this story? 

Todd White is a highly paid public speaker, and miraculous stories make more money. In 2015 Todd White made over $600,000! In order to grow his audience, Todd White needs to continually pump himself up as a great man of God; he's a master at the "humble brag."

Just in case you think that Todd White is talking about two separate "torn knee" events:

The God You Should Doubt, According to Bill Johnson and Randy Clark

If you’re looking for guides to teach you how to walk by sight, and to doubt if God loves you in Christ, you really need to listen to Bill Johnson and Randy Clark. On the other hand if you prefer to live by faith and not by sight, and don’t want to doubt God’s love for you in Christ, then you probably shouldn’t consult Bill Johnson and Randy Clark...

Bill Johnson and Randy Clark were asked why miracles and healing are so important today. Bill Johnson gave an answer that really doesn’t encourage anyone to stretch their faith, or live by faith at all. He talked about how God has the power and resources to heal.

“If you have resources and you don’t take care of a need, then your love is questioned.” -Bill Johnson

Bill Johnson is giving us room to question God’s love if he doesn’t heal us. Forget about stretching our faith and calling us to walk by faith and not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7)  Forget about saying that hope that is seen is no hope at all. (Romans 8:24) According to these men, what Jesus did on the cross doesn’t really prove that God does love us in Christ.

Randy Clark also gave a resounding call to live by sight and not by faith. He said that without miracles and healing, the gospel for some is just a moral code or philosophy. Clark gave emphasis to miracles and healing as THE way God shows his glory. That really is a top rate tactic on his part to get us to live by sight. If he wanted to get us to live by faith, he might suggest that the gospel is the very power of God unto salvation. (Romans 1:16)

So if you want the top advocates for living by sight, and doubting if God loves you, listen to Bill Johnson and Randy Clark. It’s rather interesting that these two men known for their "amazing faith," are actually better at promoting the exact opposite.

"Holy Sh*t!"-It's Heidi Baker at Brownsville!

Screen Shot 2018-02-17 at 10.00.47 AM.png

Here's a brief (and disturbing) compilation video of Heidi Baker when she was the special guest speaker at the Brownsville Assembly of God for a conference called Awake Deborah in 2003; the original video is two hours long:

Heidi tells somebody in the noisy, confused and writhing crowd "I know it hurts, it's holy though, don't be afraid..." She also asks God to "incapacitate" people. 

As Heidi is trying to impart something to Guatemala she is overcome by convulsions and says "holy sh*t, I'll come back..."

Here's that part of the original video: 

Dr. Michael Brown is a big defender of Heidi Baker, so you can be assured that she's legitimate!

NAR Publisher Larry Sparks: "We Need to Be 'Weird' Again"

Yeah Larry, that's the problem with the New Apostolic Reformation: It needs to get weird again.

This is an article claiming that the Holy Spirit wants to do something, but He can't. He's waiting for enough people to accept weirdness as a true sign of His working. As long as Christians are hesitant to embrace weird (and unbiblical) manifestations the Holy Spirit has no choice but to withdraw His presence. According to Larry Sparks, there are only two choices: either stale, dry, dead religion OR a true revival that is intrinsically weird. He says this: "Every time God moved in Scripture or recent history, His movement—by and large—was accompanied by weird phenomena."

Come on people! I wanna see you squirming around on the floor and flopping like fish! Or you could at least laugh hysterically like drunken fools. Show me that you really mean business by behaving insane, or I’m going to take my toys and go home!

Pulpit Leapfrogging: Lance Wallnau’s “Revival” Rewind from Ken Hagin

WallnauLead11202017a.jpg

Lance Wallnau wants to go back to the "good old days..."

Lance Wallnau’s 7 Mountain Mandate Underground Facebook page recently shared a video from a Kenneth Hagin revival meeting showing a lot of odd things attributed to a work of the Holy Ghost. It opens with someone leap frogging over a pulpit as the camera pans to a "Jesus is Lord" sign up front. Don't  you wonder: which "Jesus" is Lord of this place?

LeapFrogGif1.gif

There is, of course, the usual “holy laughter,” slain in the spirit, and drunk in the spirit. Hagin spends most of his time in the video looking for someone to close the service. Each person ends up becoming so drunk in the spirit that they can’t close the service. This looks more like a bizarre and twisted comedy routine than a worship service. 

But all things should be done decently and in order.
— 1 Corinthians 14:40 (ESV)
Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
— 1 Peter 1:13 (ESV)
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
— 1 Peter 5:8 (ESV)

This “revival” was not done decently and in order, and people claim to be drunk instead of sober. This supposed move of the Holy Spirit does not align with inspired scripture.

This is the type of revival people like Lance Wallnau and the New Apostolic Reformation want to bring to our churches. They're demonic apostles of disorder and drunkenness. Don't fall the the schemes of these dark super apostles. Stick with scripture, you can't go wrong.


Francis Chan and Todd White Headline Upcoming IHOP Festival of False Teaching

giphy (35).gif

Francis Chan has been a very respected Evangelical pastor and author for over a decade now, but he has taken a very deliberate turn towards the "Signs and Wonders" New Apostolic Reformation-version of Christianity in recent years. Chan does not teach the extreme Word of Faith doctrine at all, in fact, he's been really clear about wanting to stay away from man-centered false teaching altogether. He is to be commended for much of his Bible-based teaching, but that makes it even harder to understand his willingness to partner with IHOP and Todd White.  

Here's a disturbing article that documents his slide towards the doctrinally apostate church: Francis Chan Endorses the Apostate NAR Movement

Francis Chan has been known as someone who has given away most of his income to very charitable causes. He even has a Master of Divinity from the very conservative Master's Seminary where he would have been taught the exact opposite of the New Apostolic Reformation/Word of Faith doctrine that IHOP and Todd White promote. Todd White is happy to make large piles of money and live in a gigantic mansion; how does Chan feel about that? Todd White claims that he can "claim someone who doesn't believe and there's no way they can get out of it." How does Francis Chan feel about Todd White claiming to have the ability to sovereignly elect people?

Francis Chan shows no sign of going to these events as a "missionary" in order to preach a true Gospel message to the people held captive by false teachers like Mike Bickle and Todd White. Instead, he appears to be endorsing a distinctly Charismatic understanding of the Christian faith. And by being a keynote speaker at this gigantic IHOP conference, he seems to be be comfortable with the Dominionist, "Latter Rain/New Apostolic Reformation" type of teaching that IHOP and Todd White are known for.

Watch this emotionally manipulative video about the upcoming "One Thing" conference that IHOP holds every year, and notice the prominent teaching of Dominionism as well:

In the video, Mike Bickle says: "God is raising up a church that is going to be prepared to be the vessels of His glory, to release His glory into the earth this very hour of intense darkness... He says 'the beauty I possess I want to impart to you!'" (Got a Bible verse to back that up, Bickle??)

Todd White says: "Christ coming out of us is His hope revealed!" So, Christ is not revealed in his Word, according to the egomaniac Todd White. This man-centered teaching should come as no surprise, since Todd White is the guy who (literally) claims to "be the Bible." Todd White claims that he is sinless just like Jesus, does Francis Chan agree with this?

Bickle, White, and many other NAR teachers have been pumping people up with this false teaching for decades now. How are they doing at "releasing His glory" and "imparting His beauty" and "becoming the Bible?" This is warmed-over Latter Rain Dominionism that excites people with a false belief in their own greatness (if they just go to enough conferences to learn the secret from the latest guru prancing around on stage).

How long will it be before Francis Chan shares the stage with money-grubbing frauds like Benny Hinn and Kenneth Copeland? Todd White did just that a month ago:

  Benny Hinn Laying Hands on Todd White

Benny Hinn Laying Hands on Todd White

How does Francis Chan feel about Todd White calling Prosperity Preacher Kenneth Copeland his mentor and spiritual father? How does Francis Chan feel about Kenneth Copeland (and his amazing eyes)? Here's Todd White praising Kenneth Copeland (and his "amazing eyes"): Todd White Praises Kenneth Copeland, Fangirls Over Copeland’s “Amazing Eyes”

How does Francis Chan feel about Benny Hinn? Todd White radically encountered the Holy Spirit at a Benny Hinn meeting, where he felt electricity "like he was plugged into a light socket," and the ushers on either side of Todd White were thrown "three feet in the air and about ten feet back."

Galatians 1:6-9  “I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed!

1 Corinthians 5:11-13  "But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of a brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler-not even to eat with such a one. For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those on the outside. Remove the evil person from among you."

Galatians 1:10  “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”

Titus 2:7-8  “...in all things show yourself to be an example of good deeds, with purity in doctrine, dignified, sound in speech which is beyond reproach, so that the opponent will be put to shame, having nothing bad to say about us.”

1 Thessalonians 5:21  “But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good...”


The Rolland Baker Spectacle of False Teaching, Forced Laughter and Blasphemy!

This guy is trying way too hard to make things funny:

 

If you want to really ruin your day, you can watch the entire spectacle (start at about 1:24:10 into the video to just see Rolland Baker):

Pastoral Shouting Match with Ed Young and Steven Furtick!!!

  • HYPE-O-RAMA OF PASTORAL (& OVERLY DRAMATIC) SHOUTING! BECAUSE SHOUTING PROVES THAT SOMETHING IS TRUE!! Just like using ALL CAPS!!!!
  • OBLIGATORY FOOTAGE OF EMOTIONAL WORSHIPPERS WITH HANDS RAISED! (Wide aperture on lens for that shallow depth of field look; this says "spiritual, but not religious" like nothing else)
  • CHEERING A LOT... AND THEN CHEERING SOME MORE!! WHY IS THERE SO MUCH CHEERING?? JUST KEEP CHEERING!!!!
  • OBLIGATORY FOOTAGE OF ATHLETE GETTING READY TO WIN!! WOW-HE'S READY TO KICK SOME BUTT!!! JUST LIKE OUR CHURCH!!!!!
  • NO LOSERS ALLOWED; THIS IS WHERE SUPER-CHRISTIANS LEARN HOW TO WIN!!
  • OBLIGATORY FOOTAGE OF DRUMMERS DRUMMING AS PEOPLE DANCE AROUND IN SLOW MOTION!! (Wide aperture on the lens again; nice touch)
  • COOL YOUNG ROCKSTAR WORSHIP LEADERS!!
  • ONCE YOU BECOME A DIAMOND IN AMWAY YOU CAN QUIT YOUR DAY JOB!! (Oh wait, that's a different, but very similar, conference...) 
  • SOMETHING ABOUT GOD... SOMEWHERE... OH YEAH, GOD WANTS YOU TO ACHIEVE YOUR DREAM DESTINY THINGY!!!! YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!! (Continue cheering until further notice...)

Watch this conference promo video and ask yourself: Does this look like an actual Christian conference, or a motivational conference full of shouting, exaggerating and people being told how great they are? Ask yourself: Is this video trying to accurately describe a conference, or is it emotionally manipulating me into wanting to get pumped up and join all the cool people shown here? 

 

Perhaps this is the motivational speaker that that Ed Young should hire for next year's conference...

"Shock-Uh-Bobba"-Watch Heidi Baker Repeatedly Violate 1 Cor. 14:27-28!

Heidi Baker boldly claims to receive many direct revelations from God, but she repeatedly violates the revelation we've already been given on the proper use of tongues found in 1 Corinthians 14:27-28. Baker repeatedly says "shock-uh-bobba" (and a lot of other strange things) without proper interpretation of her "tongues" (or "unknown languages").

If any speak in a tongue, let there be only two or at most three, and each in turn, and let someone interpret. But if there is no one to interpret, let each of them keep silent in church and speak to himself and to God.
— 1 Corinthians 14: 27-28

According to scripture she should be keeping this "tongue" to herself, since it's just a meaningless phrase with no interpretation. So which should we believe, the written Word of God... or "shock-uh-bobba?" 

If this supposedly "mature" woman in the "prophetic realm" doesn't understand or follow the very simple and clear instructions concerning tongues in the Word of God, why should we trust what she's saying is actually from God? In watching this video, doesn't it seem like she just enjoys throwing the words "shock-uh-bobba" (or "shock-uh-bob") around? Are we really expected to believe this silly little un-interpreted phrase is coming directly from God-in violation of His own written Word??

The Fruit of the Spirit is Total Loss of Self-Control?!?

Apparently the folks in the false signs and wonders movement are unaware that one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit is SELF-CONTROL.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, SELF-CONTROL; against such things there is no law.
— Galatians 5:22–23

Below is video of self-proclaimed "prophet" Stacey Campbell losing all self-control while claiming to be giving a word from the Lord at the 20th anniversary of the so-called "Toronto Blessing".

Holy Spirit Uses Smart Phone to Help Shawn Bolz Do Cold Readings

 

The Holy Spirit must find it so much easier to transmit information now, thanks to hand held computing devices:

These people are teaching that Jesus Christ giving His life on the cross isn't enough; to really show His love people need to receive fortune telling-style "prophecy."

Shawn Bolz, Bill Johnson, Todd Bentley, Lou Engle and most of the people on stage at Azusa Now are hoping that you don't know about their history of false prophecies, scandal and non-Biblical teachings.

I Refuse to Believe Bob Jones-I'm Staying Home

Watch this short video of the late Bob Jones (NOT the Bob Jones University guy) and listen to how much weird and creepy teaching he can squeeze into just a few minutes:

Here's another occasion (in 2009) where he repeated this same false prophecy:

 

Bob Jones is considered to have been a very great prophet by everyone in the Signs and Wonders/Charismatic/IHOP/New Apostolic Reformation crowd. According to the NAR leaders, whatever he has predicted will come true! It has to come true. He's pretty much uncontested as an amazing prophet and man of God. But in this video he is talking about the "great revival" that was (at the time) going on in Lakeland, Florida, with Todd Bentley. This is before the Charismatic Day of Infamy took place. Bob Jones was TOTALLY wrong about the buffoon and scoundrel, Todd Bentley-just like every other leader who was on GodTV praising Bentley as a great healer and revivalist for a brief time in 2008. 

Bob Jones was supposed to have been the BEST prophet on planet earth-seriously, he's like a modern day Father Abraham to these people. But everything he says in this video is twisted and wrong. Being interviewed by Rick Joyner, he says that God and the angels have their hands cuffed, and it's up to us to speak things into existence because God gave us all power to unloosen them so they can go and create. This is blasphemy 101! God told him to lay hands on the pine tree that was growing out of John G. Lake's grave. And when he did this his arm caught on fire. Nice. He says that the 1950's revealed the power of God as he lists his favorite (false) teachers of that decade-starting with William Branham. (By the way, doesn't Jesus reveal the power of God? Jones doesn't mention Jesus too much...) He also claims Oral Roberts was another great man of God from the 1950's-this is the guy who invented the "seed-faith" trick that has enriched prosperity preachers all over the world, and has ruined the faith and finances of untold millions of people ever since. He says that the 1970's was the time when we finally learned the truth of the Bible. And he says that the 2000's will be a time of supernatural signs and wonders that will reveal the glory of God... how'd that work out??

Here's the really crazy thing about Bob Jones the "prophet" who seems more like a wacky uncle sipping Jack Daniels from a bottle tucked in his coat pocket than a great and important Man of God:

All of the people who are trying so hard to stir up a revival, are absolutely certain that a billion-soul revival is just around the corner. Why are they so sure of a "billion soul revival" (often called the Third Wave)? Because Bob Jones said it was going to happen. Never mind that the Bible warns us to beware of false teachers who produce great signs and wonders, and to expect a great falling away; we're supposed to skip the Bible and just listen to Bob Jones now. 

Bob Jones wasn't a good enough prophet to figure out that Todd Bentley was a third-rate hustler and fraud, but we all need to abandon everything and go to yet another "Revival of Desperation That Will Really Change The World This Time" because Bob Jones said so. Jones couldn't figure out that William Branham was a cult leader and false prophet, but we're just supposed to trust his billion-soul "prophecy" now. We're being told we have to go so we can make God finally do the thing that He's been wanting to do for decades now, if we're hungry enough... and sold-out enough... and if we sing songs along with the celebrity worship teams until we wear out our vocal chords as proof of our desperation, sincerity and conformity to Evangelical norms enough, as we hold our hands up high and close our eyes just like EVERY. SINGLE. PROMOTIONAL. PHOTOGRAPH tells us to.

I'm staying home.

I not only refuse to believe these false prophets, heretics and professional revivalists, I refuse to feel guilty for not charging up my credit card to take another trip to the "Best Conference Ever"  because they told me I have to go and prove my love for Jesus by showing up.

I will stay home and happily be a part of God's Church. I will partake of the Sacraments. I will study God's Word. I will gladly share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with as many people as I can. I will be faithful with what God has actually called me to do. 

I don't care if ninety million people march together with their arms linked to "Together 2016."

 

I don't care how many people buy into Lou Engle's  "Azusa Now: The Call" (Note the girl correctly holding up her hands and closing her eyes, just like she's supposed to)

 I don't care how many Christian super-star celebrities promise to show up and give speeches and sing songs... and sell stuff... lots of stuff.

I refuse to be manipulated by people like Lou Engle who, like Bob Jones, claims to speak directly for God. I refuse to be manipulated by expensive promotional videos that make great claims to speak on behalf of God, but can't deliver what they promise. God is not speaking through people who habitually violate His Word, and we are under no obligation to listen to them.

There. Don't you feel better now? 

You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
— 2 Peter 3:17-18

 

Remember, the New Apostolic Reformation folks are hoping nobody remembers The Charismatic Day of Infamy.
