I don’t know and have never met Bill Johnson, personally, and frankly neither of those occurrences would have any bearing whatever on what I address here. In no way am I maligning him as a person or engaging in an ad hominem attack on the man or his family, friends, or his followers, and to allege otherwise is ludicrous. From his public persona in videos I’ve seen, He presents as being a meek, personable, loving, and likable fellow. I appreciate the fact that many who do know him personally and professionally hold him in high regard, including several of my minister friends, who minister in the same circles, some at Bethel Church. Again, I have no beef with him as a person, no ax to grind. My concerns are strictly about the doctrinal and Biblical basis for the issues involved, which is always the case when I feel compelled to write about something.

In the mid 1980s God began restoring the office of the prophet back into its rightful and proper place of function in the Church that Jesus is building. Today, thousands of churches and ministers accept and themselves advocate this premise. But is there such a thing as “judgment prophets” today in the New Testament era. Even within Charismatic and Neo-Pentecostal churches espousing the validity of the prophetic and apostolic offices in today’s ecclesia, the issue of the prospect of judgment prophets being anointed, appointed, and sent by God with a special message from Him and equipped with supernatural powers such as what Moses was given by God produces sharp and sometime contentiousness debate. So, do judgment prophets exist today? Here’s one perspective.

Deliverance is the missing element that badly needs to be rediscovered in this hour when crazed madmen and madwomen are running around everywhere performing incomprehensible acts of murder and mayhem in our schools, church buildings, movie-houses, parks, and every form of public square. It’s not stricter gun-control that is needed, that only reduces the citizenry’s ability to defend themselves against such reprehensible acts of crazed violence, but rather it is “DEMON-CONTROL” that is needed more than anything and more than ever! Sociologists, psychologist, and psychiatrists prescribing psychotropic drugs, are not and don’t have the answer! The Church, comprised of those who believe in His Name, are and have the answer! It is the CHURCH, who holds the only source of “demon-control,” who has failed to carry out the very first tenet of what is known as “The Great Commission” but which by lack of practice has become “The Great Omission,” and thereby has failed our nation and the nations of the world. “CAST OUT DEMONS!” is a COMMAND Jesus issued to the Church, not to the world of unbelieving or agnostic, and it was not merely a suggestion or recommendation, but a COMMAND! When the Church fails to obey the commands of the Head of the Church, we fail, and there are always adverse consequences and a price to pay for our failures!

The so-called “Lakeland Healing Revival” has produced a new cult of dogmatic religious zealots, who claim to be “Christians” birthing a “new form” of Christianity. They speak the words, the phrases, the idioms, the expressions associated with Christianity, but their doctrine, or teaching, their theology, their ways, the values and culture they advocate and promote are all far from comporting with orthodox or genuine Christianity. Plain and simple, this whole phenomenon is nothing but just another of the long list of “Christian cults” that have sprung up in church history. To the discerning and experienced, the signs of cultism are all there—glowing and flashing like a neon sign.

Beginning on Tuesday, April 21st, Dan Haseltine, front-man for the popular Christian band Jars of Clay, took to Twitter to announce his apparent support for same-sex “marriage.” And for the life of him, he can’t figure out a single good reason to oppose it. In a series of tweets posted over a three-day period, and prompted by a movie he watched while in flight, he wrote: “The treatment of people as less than human based on the color of skin is crazy… Or gender, or sexual orientation for that matter.”

History and sociological statistics tell us that wherever and whenever there is an absence of fatherhood there is an increase in sin and rebellion, along with the resultant crime and corruption sin and rebellion engender societally. The produce of a dearth of fatherhood, both in individual lives and collective society, is disobedience of all sorts and kinds, both to God’s authority and God’s delegated authority — human authority (Rom. 12). Indeed, fatherhood is the expression or manifestation on earth of God’s authority. God is a Father — the ultimate Father. He created the human race out of His need for fellowship with someone other than Himself.

Unfortunately, the irrefutable fact is that the covert, systematic secularization and socialization of America has been transpiring in earnest right under our proverbial noses since the latter part of the 19th Century. With the final coup de gras of ascension of the Marxism-incarnate, political “Manchurian Candidate” who suddenly and mysteriously appeared out of nowhere in Melchizedek-like fashion, having no verifiable pre-21st Century past, into the highest office of our land, the communistic goal of the “totalitarianization” of America is finally fait accompli! Having seized the reins of power, the comrades now controlling the real “Red Party” (Democrats) have initiated their evil agenda of the socialization of every facet of American society, the dismantling of the substructure and infrastructure of our republican form of government, and the morphing of the nation into a Marxist nanny state controlled by an elite Marxist aristocracy comprising an oligarchic government intent on Pharaoh-esque domination, subordination, and enslavement of the citizenry.

A couple of years ago we sent out a Warning itemizing a number of facts about Bill Johnson’s ministry and Bethel Church in Redding. Numerous witnesses and videos from Bethel show that this church is spreading an “anointing” very similar to Todd Bentley – i.e. spiritual “drunkenness,” jerking, hysterical laughter, “angel orbs,” “fire tunnels,” spirit travel, mystical “portals,” etc. Plus constant talk in their ministry school of bizarre angel encounters and trips to the “third heaven.” All of it has an extremely “New Age” feel. And it is still going on today. (But even worse, as we shall see).

We must receive the revelation of the Spirit that God’s anointed and appointed Davy Crocketts and Daniel Boones (spiritual pioneers)—the “free radicals” of the Spirit—who do not fit into the prototypical modern molds of spiritual leadership also require our spiritual and financial support in order to accomplish the missions to which they’ve been called on behalf of the entire Body. Relative to the rest, they may be “far out,” and far out ahead of the rest of the Body, but that grants no right to ignore and marginalize those individuals, nor their ministries. We must not be guilty of saying, “I have no need of thee!”
