Ecumenical meeting with Pope Francis, June 2014
Sadly we found that some Churches, organizations & colleges mainly belonging to the movements of Neo Calvinism, The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) & The Word of Faith (WoF) movement, (as well as some other organizations), are in a great number getting involved with the ecumenical movement. They have links with one another, and are mostly Dominionists or ‘Kingdom Now‘ theology, which believe that it is Christians’ job to take over the world and occupy or exercise dominion, imposing a biblical rule. They said Christ would not return, until the church had claimed dominion over all of the world’s governments and institutions (7 mountains or spheres).
“But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many” Matthew 20:25-28
“O house of Jacob, come and let us walk In the light of the Lord. For You have forsaken Your people, the house of Jacob, Because they are filled with eastern ways; They are soothsayers (H6049-diviners) like the Philistines, And they are pleased with the children of foreigners.” Isaiah 2:6

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” 1 Tim. 4:1
Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. 1 Timothy 4:16
We are not trying here to accuse people, we don’t question their motives, their hearts, personal lives, characters, etc. They may be nice people or even sincere, but that doesn’t mean they may not be deceived. We just question their doctrines in light of the Scriptures, especially because our salvation depends on the true doctrine we find in the Word of God, not in the words of men. We can’t take verses out of context that’s what sects do and the reason why they are in error. Exhortation and admonition (right judgment) seek to gently correct and restore.
I was a Catholic half of my life, most of my family still are, I love them, have witnessed to them and pray for their salvation, but they are not following the doctrines of the bible, the teachings of Jesus, they are following doctrines of men. It’s true that there may be some of them having revelation of who is Christ but surely they are also in their way out of that system like many of us did, please let us not forget to pray for them.
“This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” Matthew 15: 8-9
