A very admired and well known Assembly of God pastor was David Wilkerson who brought the Word of God to gangs in Bronx, N.Y., people that nobody wanted to witness to. God made many miracles in their midst. Before he passed away he gave us many warnings about the counterfeit Faith Preachers. See Video.
As Peter’s doctrinal offense was public, Galatians 2:11 Paul publicly reproved him, because he was affecting others that were imitating him, and were not walking according to the truth of the gospel.
Sadly we also found that some Churches, organizations & colleges, specially the ones belonging to The Neo Calvinism , The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) & The Word of Faith (WoF) movements (as well as some other organizations) are getting involved with this ecumenical movement, they have links with one another, and are Dominionist or ‘Kingdom Now’ theology. Many of them had been warned & rebuked by other pastors, but still continue in their ways. The most painful part is all the people they are causing to fall away from the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
There is a dispute that the Catholic Knights of Malta (SMOM) under the Vatican and the Masonic Ecumenical Knights of Malta are not the same one, but that’s is what they want people to believe. Either way, they both come from the same historical roots (Catholic Crusaders), both recognize themselves as ecumenical, use the same symbols and both have Catholic members, Catholic bishops as leaders & Catholic representatives in their ceremonies. You can see the letters from two popes Benedict (it says blessing was requested) & John Paul II, giving them their blessings to the Order of Malta,( go to activities, then correspondence). The Catholic Prince of Spain, Enrique Borbon was a Royal protector of the Order. The Knights Templar (33o) & Knights of Malta are the highest 2 levels of Masonic Rite of York (American), compare picture with stairs of Headquarters . Google map, street view.
The grand master of Rick Joyner & Boykin, Nicholas Papanicolaou is a Freemason, member of the Masonic Order of Amaranth. Also the Cross of Malta and the double headed eagle are both Masonic symbols, as well as are their ceremonies, protocols, etc. The principal requirements to enter the Order are: (i) a strong commitment to the Roman Catholic religion and (ii) having achieved distinction in civil society. (like masons or militaries). The Word of God tells us:
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. Ephesians 5:11
On Rick Joyner’s website he admits he is a Knight of Malta, in a video presentation he says he joined the order over 20 years ago, but he said is not a secret society but it’s an open group, there he talks about Mike Bickle, Mahesh Chavda and others being knighted with him. He founded the Oak Initiative with Boykin, Freemason N. Papanicolaou & some others as leaders of this organization. Boykin is a Grand Chancellor and Joyner is the Grand Prior of the Carolinas. Both men are dominionist, Boykin: Church Called To Occupy. LTG (Ret) William G “Jerry” Boykin stated that when Jesus comes back, he will do so carrying an AR-15 assault rifle! He is a regular commentator for Fox News, and is also Vice President of the FRC. See more on – Masonry in the Church? & FanaticforJesus.
“Raise up those who will save us,” Rick Joyner said. “Because the system is so broken… I believe our only hope is military takeover. Martial law.”
– If you disbelieve anything that has been presented in this series of posts, please follow-up by doing your own research, but don’t just dismiss it as impossible or wrong. We understand how tragic is all of this and the serious threat this represents to the true church of Christ. But also will make us realize our need to pray without ceasing for the church and also for the ones harming the church. There is no doubt that a counterfeit church exist, that is being united by the ecumenical movement, & only by studying well the Word of God and by the guidance of the Holy Spirit we will be able to set them apart.
Many Christians without knowing take their experiential views above the Scriptures. There is no mention in the Word of God of the superiority of our sensations, experiences or even the whisper we think is God talking to our hearts, over the authority of the Scriptures. All sensations, all insights, all “whispers in the heart” should be checked against Scripture. There is a reason why God besides sending us His Holy Spirit, also left us His Word. We can not embrace the movements of the Holy Spirit and reject the Words that He inspired.
Many leaders of these movements, as an excuse for not checking on weird manifestations, say: “For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life”. 2 Cor. 3:6.
But they are using this verse out of context. It doesn’t mean to put aside Scriptures and rely on sensations or feelings. That contradicts the Bible! The verse in context is talking about the letters written on tablets of stone, the law that condemns us of sin (which waves is death Rom. 6:23), the law could not saved us only gives us a death sentence, but now we are ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter (law) but of the Spirit.
I pray this information will serve as a wake-up call and help raise awareness to the dangers of seducing spirits, and unbiblical doctrines that have invaded the church; that this could also help to see the importance of studying God’s Word, and of submitting to the Holy Spirit so we can pray without ceasing to keep our hearts close to our precious Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
All that is needed for the forces of evil to succeed is for enough good men to remain silent. (attributed to) Edmund Burke
