To fully grasp all the reasons the New Apostolic Reformation is such a dangerous movement and why discernment bloggers incessantly warn about this cult I’m going to take an excerpt from a piece I wrote a few years ago entitled “Dominionists are on the move…and they mean business.” I began with a quote from NAR’s Grand Poohbah, C. Peter Wagner:
Once we have the apostles in place, we will then bring the intercessors and the prophets into the inner circle, and we will end up with the spiritual core we need to move ahead for retaking the dominion that is rightfully ours.
Wagner was speaking of modern-day apostles and prophets. What did he mean by taking dominion that is rightly ours? I’ll reveal his plans in a moment.
But first, I must urge readers to take Wagner and other NAR/word-faith wolves seriously. Moreover, it is imperative that Bible believers fully understand the inner workings of the NAR in order to, “recognize them by their [rotten] fruit.” (Mat. 7:16) Continue reading
(Luis Maguel – The New American) Attorney Sidney Powell has joined the legal effort to release individuals who are presently in federal incarceration in relation to the January 6, 2021 protest at the U.S. Capitol.
Powell is best known for defending retired lieutenant general Michael Flynn in United States v. Flynn and for participating in 2020 election lawsuits propelled by her claims that mass voter fraud occurred by means of the Dominion and Smartmatic voting machines. Continue reading
“To be clear on the math here, Fauci’s answer would imply that only about 80 vaccinated people – 0.8 percent of 10,000 – died in June. These are – how do I put this delicately? – big fat stinking lies. They are off by a factor of at least five, and probably 10 or more.”
(Alex Berenson) In the last few weeks, politicians and senior public health officials have insisted over and over that unvaccinated Americans account for essentially ALL of the deaths of people from Covid. Continue reading
(LifeSiteNews) – Prior to facemask mandates as an alleged preventive for Covid infection and transmission, such masks were infrequently worn in hospitals and other medical facilities. They were only used in operating theatres or for visiting seriously ill patients in order to prevent infection from spit or droplets into open wounds or to partially protect visitors from acquiring and transmitting pathogens more dangerous than Covid. Many doctors and nurses have told LifeSite that for decades, if not longer, staff wearing medical masks were an uncommon sight in health care facilities other than as mentioned. Continue reading
5 Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. 6 Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person. Colossians 4:5-6 (NASB)
There are really only two mindsets. There is the natural man mindset that we were all born with then there is the transformed mindset that comes as a result of being transformed by the renewal of our minds as a way of life and walking before the face of God. (Romans 12:1-2)…. Continue reading
13 But Moses said to the people, “Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the LORD which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. 14 The LORD will fight for you while you keep silent.” Exodus 14:13-14 (NASB)
While I rejoice as there are so many Christian leaders whom God has raised up at this time to tell the truth about the growing apostasy within the visible church…. Continue reading
“And therein lies the real crime: Paul Hodgkins, a working-class American who took a bus on the 900-mile journey to the nation’s capital to support his president and protest a clearly rigged election, defiled the ruling class’ palace with a Trump flag.”
(Julie Kelly – American Greatness) “Paul Hodgkins is not my enemy.”
Fighting back tears, Patrick Leduc, an attorney representing a man charged in connection with the January 6 protest at the Capitol, made that statement in a dramatic court hearing Monday morning. Leduc, by the way, is no snowflake…. Continue reading
While urging Americans to get the vaccine, Joe Biden falsely claimed that “If you’re vaccinated, you’re not going to be hospitalized, you’re not going to be in the ICU unit and you’re not going to die.”
(Revolver) Did you happen to catch CNN’s town hall on Wednesday?
The broadcast was hosted by Don Lemon, and featured a predictably confused and stammering Joe Biden, haplessly trying to muck his way through an array of topics ranging from gun-gabbing to January 6th to Covid. Continue reading
(Protestia) Yesterday we wrote in our article “Three Oneness Pentecostals, an Adulterer, a Whoremonger, a Pillow Tycoon, and Trump’s Lawyer Headline a Conference Together…” about how a collective of false teachers, Trinity-deniers, and men whose scandal in their personal lives would give the guy sleeping with his father’s wife in 1 Corinthians 5 a run for his money. They were headlining what was promoted as a “Christian conference,” a three-day event in August called America’s Revival, whose goal was to “Make America Godly Again” and whose promo material states: Continue reading
“Most takes on this oppose Christianity to one of these, but we should note two things. Firstly, Christianity is opposed to every single one of them. Jesus brooks no rivals. Secondly, each contains truth.”
(T.M. Suffield) The book takes us on a journalistic tour of some examples of “pick & mix” religion before describing three movements that Burton describes as religions. I’ll briefly outline them below, but the book deserves a wide reading…. Continue reading
“We would encourage people to tag @JennaEllisEsq on Twitter and share this post, warning her of the mess of theological trash and unrepentant personalities she’s about to walk into.”
(Protestia) Christendom is gearing up for one of the wildest conferences in a long time – an event so rife with bad theology, character defects, and misguided spirituality and purpose that it’ll be the closest thing to the Christian version of the Fyre Festival there will ever likely be.
Billed as “America’s Revival,” the promo material states: Continue reading
(Daily Wire) Former White House physician Ronny Jackson, who served in the role under both Presidents Obama and Trump, told Fox News on Thursday night that he believes that President Joe Biden will be forced to resign or will face the 25th Amendment over issues related to his fitness for office.
Jackson, who now represents Texas’ 13th Congressional District, told Fox News that he has been saying for a while that “something’s going on here.” Continue reading
(Rick Moran – PJ Media) Texas Governor Greg Abbott has begun ordering the arrest and jailing of illegal immigrants along the border while the Biden administration accelerates its “catch and release” program.
“Our fellow Texans and our fellow Americans are being threatened every day,” he said recently. “I’m talking to people in this region. Their lives and their properties and their families are being overrun.”
There is a push in the United States to make it illegal to preach the truth from God’s Word where it pertains to the sin of homosexuality. Of course the emphasis of those laws or initiatives is to protect the rights of certain people based on their sexual preference, which is also called gay rights. They say that to preach what the Bible says about homosexuality is to foment hate; therefore, the laws are placed under the umbrella of hate crimes. Continue reading
“The Left got drunk on the idea that they now had their hands on the money and influence in America. So they systematically began targeting institutions. And they leveraged them not from the noisy street with empty protests, but from within.”
(Victor Davis Hanson – American Greatness) In the old days, Democrats had predictable agendas, supposedly focused on individual rights, the “little guy,” and distrust of the military-industrial-intelligence complex. Continue reading
(Brian Flood – Fox News) CNN’s heavily promoted town hall event with President Biden lit up social media for all the wrong reasons on Wednesday night as everything from crowd size to moderator Don Lemon’s performance was roasted.
Bloomberg News reporter Jennifer Epstein kicked things off by pointing out the tiny crowd. “CNN was very careful to not show that no one showed up for the Biden Town Hall and that most of the room was empty,” radio host Mark Simone noted. Continue reading
“The Biblical truths that we’ve held for so long–truths such as human depravity, the exclusivity of Christ, and God’s hatred of sin–are whitewashed with affirming antics and nuanced language that effectively stains the image of God from his perfect glory.”
(Reformation Charlotte) An up-and-coming worship artist, Mackenzie Morgan, a worship leader at Refine Church in Lascassas, Tennessee, recently blasted Hillsong, Elevation Church, and Bethel Church [Redding], stating that she “felt extremely convicted singing and supporting popular worship bands” such as these because of their heresies. Continue reading
“Most of what I’ve mentioned are permanent. That is the great fear. The neurological ones are very worrisome, and so we’re seeing these now in practice six or nine months later, The first thing the patients ask is, ‘Am I going to have this ringing in my ears forever or is this going to go away?’ Or, a patient reports ‘my face is paralyzed on one side, is it going to get partially better or am I going to be stuck with my face contorted?’”
(Leo Hohmann) Millions of students across the United States are waking up to the reality that getting a college education now requires them to submit to a new medical treatment that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration considers experimental. Continue reading
“A minuscule but radical and activist segment of the population is determining what the minds of the vast majority of America’s children (those allowed to watch mainstream TV) will be fed.”
(Selwyn Duke – The New American) When the “San Francisco Gay Men’s Choir” recently sang “We’ll convert your children. We’re coming for them,” it was just a blunter form of a very old sentiment and scheme. After all, in 1989 already in their book After the Ball, homosexuality activists Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen called for a “conversion of the average American’s emotions, mind, and will” on homosexual behavior “through a planned psychological attack, in the form of propaganda fed to the nation via the media.” Continue reading
17 When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, “Is this you, you troubler of Israel?” 18 He said, “I have not troubled Israel, but you and your father’s house have, because you have forsaken the commandments of the LORD and you have followed the Baals. 19 Now then send and gather to me all Israel at Mount Carmel, together with 450 prophets of Baal and 400 prophets of the Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.” 1 Kings 18:17-19 (NASB)
There was a time when the English and American cultures were decidedly “Christian.” Those days are long gone. Whatever it is that God is doing through this, the “Remnant” of genuine believers within the visible Church must awaken and become prepared for what is coming…. Continue reading
“Earlier this year, McLean Bible Church released a draft for a discipleship resource designed for church members and leaders which is basically a baptized version of Critical Race Theory which obfuscates the issues of racism and individual sin.”
(Reformation Charlotte) A sad sight to behold is the trajectory that David Platt has been on over the last several years as the Evangelical “racial reconciliation” movement — a movement rooted in Marxist Critical Race Theory — has consumed him in nearly every aspect of thought and decision. Continue reading
“As further evidence of what appears to be serial plagiarism continues to surface in at least six videos from a variety of named sources, the Conservative Baptist Network calls on the leaders of the SBC to address this matter promptly and biblically.”
(Capstone Report) CBN: Ed Litton’s ‘sinful behavior and the lack of forthrightness when exposed is inconsistent with the character and integrity Southern Baptists rightfully expect from their president.’ Continue reading
(Stacey Lennox – PJ Media) It seems the Biden administration will listen to the public when the rejection of their ideas is clear and loud. On April 19, 2021, the Department of Education (DOE) proposed a new regulation to promote culturally responsive teaching and information literacy skills under the American History and Civics Education programs. Under the first priority, the DOE proposal would give preference to grant applications for a curriculum that incorporates ideas laden with critical theories (emphasis added): Continue reading
