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.

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.”

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.

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.

Finally and mercifully, the “strong delusion” known as “The Lakeland Outpouring” or “Lakeland Healing Revival” is no more, after its main leader, Todd Bentley, has been exposed as the...Read More

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!

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!”

In the Old Testament, Joshua brought Jericho to crashing defeat as the Israelites simply obeyed the Lord’s instruction to march around its seemingly inpenetrable walls encompassing the city in total silence for seven days. The walls did not fall until the seventh day. What was successfully begun on the first day was not accomplished until the last. So it is with believers today. “We reap in due season if we faint not.” When Israel placed God’s battering-ram, i.e., the power of the Holy Spirit, against the walls of Jericho, the city was compelled to fall, even though that did not occur until the end of a week. But ultimately, the wall had no other choice. It had to fall, when they simply obeyed the Lord’s instruction, which was relayed to them by their God-anointed and appointed human leader. The principle is still true today.

One of the wonderful things about the Christmas Season is that for a few days and weeks at the close of every year virtually the entire world is confronted with the belief held by millions throughout time that two-thousand years ago a Baby was born in a lowly manger who was the long-awaited Messiah of Israel and the Savior of all Mankind. “You shall call His Name, Jesus,” the angel of God instructed His human parents, which means Savior, for He would save the world from their sins. His Name would also be Immanuel, which means, God with us; and that He is! for all those who receive Him, are infused in their human spirit with His very Life, His Being, His Spirit, the Divine Nature. But, is peace on earth really the purpose of the first-coming of Christ?

There has been a great fall. More has come down than the great towers of the world’s financial center; it is the world itself that can never again be the same. What security, confidence or trust can mankind be assured when even its impenetrable symbol of defense, the Pentagon, is itself penetrated? It is not that systems of security have momentarily failed and can henceforth be remedied and strengthened, but system itself; that is, what is wrought by man and constitutes the assured, assumed verities of life and safety—the taken-for-granted foundations of being itself—are themselves forever shaken! Henceforth, nothing can be assumed as sure; no institution of society, even government itself, inviolable. The rudiments of civilization, law order, justice are overnight, in a day, collapsed, rendered undone. Men, moved by cold satanic calculation, without fear of imprisonment or even death, take with them unsuspecting innocent and defenseless thousands into sudden catastrophe. And this, stupifyingly, in the name of rectifying injustices or drawing attention to a wrong! Anything and everything goes when reverence and the respect for life have perished.

Bishop Anthony Joseph “Tony” Palmer, a South African Bishop with the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches, who earlier this year gained notoriety as the mediator of a meeting between a small cadre of high-profile Charismatic leaders and Catholic Pope Francis, died Sunday, July 20, 2014, from injuries sustained in a motorbike accident in the UK.
