Signs and Wonders or Deception and Apostasy

sunset7

There  is no doubt we are living in the last  days which include perilous times where deception and apostasy rule the day.

Have you ever known someone that is more concerned with the next move of God or wave of the Spirit rather than reading , understanding, and applying the principles of God into their daily living. I do, there are numerous charismatic signs and wonders chasers being deceived in the Body  of Christ and in the Church today. I can compare it to a surfer trying to catch the ultimate wave, going from beach to beach in search of the ultimate wave but never finding it. The search for the next wave in Charismatic circles  has led believers down a path away from  Jesus instead of towards Him.

About a year ago a good friend mine and a supposed strong Christian came to our home Bible study and started telling everyone in attendance about this next move of God. He mentioned about how the Apostle/ Prophet movement will replace the Church and the Fivefold ministry will be restored and run the Church. That Miracles, Signs and Wonders will increase with major healing revivals all over the world. He was always big on personal prophecy, revivals, healing ministries, Word of Faith theology, and Angelic visitation.  Knowing that he was not grounded doctrinally, I passed it off as phase and didn’t think about it much. He also mentioned the Elijah List, Kim Clement, Bill Hamon , gold dust, teeth being filled with gold, angelic orbs and Todd Bentley.

Lets take a  look at all of the above mentioned; first of all the Elijah list and all of its false prophets including Kim Clement are so far off and New Age it is not funny. None of Kim Clement’s prophecies have ever come to pass and the people who are following him are being deceived and led into a state of apostasy. It’s not amazing to me that the false prophets of today have the audacity to speak lies in the name of the Lord because it happened before in the Old Testament in Isaiah and Jeremiah’s time. It’s amazing to me that people who should know the Bible even listen. The Elijah list promotes all of the big names in the Apostles/ Prophets movement such as Rick Joyner, Paul Cain, C. Peter Wagner,  Chuck Pierce, Bob Jones, Patrica King  and Stacey Campbell  all and I mean all are involved with this deception http://www.letusreason.org/Latrain36.htm. This Apostles/Prophets movement is so dangerous and harmful to the Body of Christ because they preach another gospel and another Jesus. It encompasses a mixture of New Age, Word of Faith, Hinduism, chanting, sorcery, divination, and throw in some Christian jargon for good measure.

Getting back to my friend, I began to explain to him that there will be no revival  in the last days but deception and  apostasy. I then pointed him to I Timothy 4 vs 1 & 2 which states ” Now the Spirit speaks expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the Faith giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of Devils. Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron”.  This lead to a discussion about angelic visitations and  commanding angels, all of which he learned about years ago being involved with Word of Faith  false teaching. Once again he was deceived,we can’t as believers command any of Gods Angels around to do our bidding. God sends Angels when and where He sees it necessary to accomplish His work. For they are God’s messengers and listen to God alone (Hebrews 1 vs 14).He unfortunately he didn’t want to receive the Word the Lord wanted me to share with him. The last time I talked with him, he was on the Todd Bentley false revival train on his way to chasing more signs and wonders.
