They Will Seek To Kill You!


Persecution


We have always known that persecution would arise before the return of our Lord, but now it seems closer than ever. And the greatest threat appears to be coming (as Jesus warned, and as the book of Revelation does seem to indicate) from other Christians.

Matthew 10: 21-25
“Brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. …

“A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. It is enough for a disciple that he be like his teacher, and a servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more will they call those of his household!”.

Old Heresies Repurposed for Today’s Delusion


Constance Cumbey Interview

This post contains an audio of an interview with guest speaker Constance Cumbey, noted researcher into the New Age and heresies in the Church.  Here she updates her former research by telling us that she sees the same teachings in the QAnon and related movements today.

This is no surprise to bible students, since the age-old plan to trick humanity into handing over the government of the planet to a wise and powerful messiah-figure never really varies. Only the terminology changes. Continue reading

Joel’s Army is “The Coming Storm”?


Calm Before Storm

Secretive QAnon Prophecy

I once attended a seemingly good evangelical church in the 80’s. However, I had cause to sit down and go silent when they began introducing songs about the Church’s victory over the world and specifically the rise of “Joel’s Army“.

They rush on the city, they run on the wall
Great is the army that carries out His word
Blow the trumpet in Zion, Zion
Sound the alarm in My Holy mountain! Continue reading

Ten Reasons to Reject the New Apostolic Reformation


false-apostlesI decided to create this short summary (which can never hope to cover adequately this gigantic worldwide movement) as an addition and update to the “Ten Reasons” tracts that were written many years earlier but have, I believe, been helpful to many.

They are found here, on my CROSS+WORD Banner Ministries archive website:

The second one has similarities to this new version and is therefore well worth reading too. However, I felt that NEW information and activities needed to be added so that 21st century Christians could find what they were looking for. This cannot be more than a summary. If you need to know more, please do a search on my websites, on the internet, or follow the web links provided. In that way you can get a deeper understanding of the teachings and the ministries involved.

Latter Rain Roots


The Fire Falls

The Fire Falls

Have you ever wondered where all the revivalism came from? Did the idea of dominion, a global rule of apostles and prophets, and the “falling fire” of the Holy Ghost spring up in the past decade, and if not, who started it and how did it come to be so popular? Continue reading

Todd Bentley’s Female Angel


Todd Bentley’s Female Angel
Sept 10 2008

If you have been keeping abreast of recent developments, you will already have heard the story of Todd Bentley at the Lakeland “Revival” – his claims of resurrections, healings and angelic visitation, and then the exposure of his drunkenness and adultery, as well as his lies and manipulations.

Perhaps at this late stage it’s not necessary to add more, but I will attach here my video, created in the days when Bentley was the next best hope for mankind, according to those who supported him.
Bob Jones, the once disgraced “prophet” who has been aching to revive his dead Kansas City revival of the 80’s (which also looked back to the now notorious 1947 Latter Rain revival of North Battleford, Canada) introduced Bentley to the “Emma” angel who supposedly birthed that revival, and she became quite a regular feature of Bentley’s pronouncements – that is, until the opposition to a female angel became too strong, whereupon he turned tail and denounced her, in favour of other male entities like the “Winds of Change”.

I produced this cynical video which does make a point, in a humorous way. I felt that the level of hype was such that we were all in danger of taking ourselves too seriously, or at least, the devil and his works. I felt it was time to bring him down with a little comedy.
