PIC: Chicago1Ray.twitter Are you living as if your mindset is protected by God? Convinced of it? Is your thinking following God’s Think? Think again – might save you an eternity of regret. A worldview that conflicts with His You may have played in church since a toddler, but that does not translate into God accepting […]
Jesus Himself said many that come to Him in the end times will be rejected. Wow. This is not expected! Why will He reject so many? These that He rejects are nice people, loving people. They each call themselves Christians. So much for getting to Heaven by being nice and loving! “Loving” does not save.
What trumps what? Are you careful to closely examine what your pastor teaches, comparing what is said — with what you read in the Bible? It should be a weekly habit. Many pastors and common folk equate experiences they have – with Scripture given to us by God. This leads to false assumptions about God […]
Based on Post New Apostolic Reformation Reflections by Rick Becker The Bible was given by God Prophets of old (both Old Testament and New Testament) spoke and wrote as they were inspired by God (2 Peter 1:19-21). Their words were truly given for us – by God. There is a reason we call that collection […]
Music by Bethel, Jesus Culture, Hillsong, and Elevation – hooks uninitiated church folk into false teaching churches. Beware.
Living and leaving God behind? That is easy. Try something a little more challenging: Live to please God Almighty – in everything you do! Now that is a worthy challenge. And the prize at the end is more than adequate for your focus.
To be faithful to Christ, we cannot mix Jesus plus something. It’s like mixing water with oil. That’s a messy mix. There is contradiction and opposition between the two.The same goes for anything in life: To stay true and faithful to Jesus we absolutely must deny that which denies Christ.
It is not of God to say “this is a word from the Lord” when what you say are merely your own words. “God is against you” if you practice that.
Jesus gave us the parable of the Wheat and the Tare. There are unrepentant “tares” all around us at church. That is what Jesus Himself taught.
Who is a false teacher, as contrasted with just a dumbhead who got it wrong? God is against the false teacher, but He forgives dumbheads like me who sometimes get it wrong. What is your definition of “false teacher”?
Satan “knows that he has a short time.” God is at work – accomplishing His plan of the ages. Are you ready for Him?
A series about: Bethel, NAR, false teachings, being apostate, teaching “another gospel”, following a Jesus who cannot save. Do you know what they teach – which makes them so bad and leaves you on the broad road to destruction?
Believe in the Name of Jesus – and you will be saved. “A whole lot of “accepting” is going on there in that moment in time… “when you (if you did), or I, said, “I accept Christ as my Lord and Savior”. Are you aware of what-all it actually requires to truly “accept Christ”? Who do you believe?
It doesn’t matter who you think you are, God is not impressed. He will judge all of us on an equal basis. And when God calls a sin, “sin”, it is. How can a deep heart and intelligent mind become so painfully befuddled, to the point that one comes to actually believe that Jesus is okay with sin? So what in the world are people thinking: Calling themselves “Christians” but contradicting Jesus?
Have you so, so wanted “the miraculous”, that you swallowed the whole lie, hook, line, and sinker… the ultimate Bethel Bill deception of following a Jesus who was not God? Scary thought.
NAR “associated” churches continue to flourish. Many people who are part of this movement don’t know it’s called the New Apostolic Reformation. In fact, they may not even know they are part of a movement at all. And they may not be fully aware of all the extreme teachings associated with it. Do you?
The main point of the Bible is that God came down to earth as Jesus – to be our God and Savior. Jesus, while on earth, was absolutely God-man.
There is no other saving Gospel of Christ.
What “gospel” are you into? The Bible says there is no other gospel that saves us for all eternity – except the original Gospel of the early church apostles. None. The great falling away from the faith, predicted by Paul, is happening right now in the form of Bethel and other NAR-related church doctrines.
False teachers and prophets think of themselves as so special and bright. They “subtly introduce destructive heresies.” “By an act of human will” they make Scripture say what they very well want it to say. And shallow thinkers follow after them.
Scripture uses farmers terms. It calls true believers “wheat”, and fake believers “tares”. A tare is a plant that grows up with wheat, but is not true wheat.
Tares are like the piglet that suckles with the kitten’s mother cat. The piglet thinks he’s a kitten because he likes the milk. But he’s only a pig, not a cat. The same is true of folk who like the idea of being blessed by Christ, but never yield to Him.
Are you tipping the scales to get what you want? Maybe using the wrong scales? “You are all wrong
because you know neither the Scriptures [which teach the resurrection] nor the power of God [for He is able to raise the dead].”
The DNA of Jesus must look similar to ours, but He is both God – and man. Jesus was born on earth – as all man, and all God – for all time. Jesus most certainly did NOT at anytime give up His divine nature, His “Godness”. He was divine throughout all of His 33 years living on earth as a man. Jesus was and is now: totally God, and totally man.
It is totally biblical to name names and call-out false teachers, phoney baloney prophets, and false movements. We are encouraged to know well the doctrines of the Bible, so that we ourselves are capable of recognizing when teachers go astray from them. We are warned that teachers will go beyond what Scripture so clearly states, (giving us “Beyond the Burger” varieties).
This article, A glossary of new apostolic reformation terminology, is by Rick Becker over at his site, Famine In The Land. Becker’s content is shared here with the intent to further warn the Church about false teachers. Words make a difference. And these terms used by NAR teachers are leading people into false teachings.
In this article I [Rick Becker] share various stages, or moments of awakening to certain truths that many experience after their exit from the NAR. When you are saved from the deception that captivated you, a process begins to unfold… essential in order to lay a foundation for a faith that doesn’t fall for the various comfortable winds of doctrine. Post New Apostolic Reformation (NAR)
Seeing clearly now in these End Times is so very difficult. Misinformation floods our mind threatening to throw our thinking every which way. Sound doctrine, what God has made so very clear for us – gets distorted by false teachers. And the call of the wild beckons. The enemies of our soul are always camping at the gates.To remain faithful to the end, we followers of Jesus must regularly examine ourselves, ask penetrating questions deep inside our insides.
Examples of false doctrines to stay away from.
When you need something more than Jesus, something more than the Gospel of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and Paul – then you most likely have strayed from Jesus. How do you determine what you believe and follow?
