(Churchwatch Central) “[Brian] Houston and others in Hillsong have recounted again and again that God said to Houston, “I will give you this city.” Obviously Houston was influence by the ‘Kingdom Now!” thinking of the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s where it was popular to take “the city for God”. “
Cult expert Walter Martin was a master in understanding ‘cultspeak’, warning people to realize there is a language barrier between Christians and cultists. He stated, “The average non-Christian cult owes its very existence to the fact that it has utilized the terminology of Christianity, has borrowed liberally from the Bible (almost always out of context), and sprinkled its format with evangelical cliches and terms wherever possible or advantageous. Up to now this has been a highly successful attempt to represent their respective systems of thought as “Christian.””

In his famous book ‘Kingdom of the Cults’, Walter Martin had a chapter titled ‘Scaling the Language Barrier’ identifying how cultists dishonestly engage with semantics when attempting to seduce Christians into embracing their heretical ideas.
Since the inception of the New Order of the Latter Rain (NOLR) infiltrating Christianity with their false teaching on end-times Apostles and Prophets, generations have now mainstreamed their idea through a global movement that C. Peter Wagner called the ‘New Apostolic Reformation’ (NAR). By scaling their language barrier, it becomes evident they:
- do not believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit of Christianity
- they do not preach or believe in the 2000 yr old Christian gospel
- they do not believe in the bible as their final authority (sola scriptura)
- they do not believe in the atoning work of the cross
- they do not believe in the great commission
