Evangelical Leaders & Ecumenism – Pt.3

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Evangelical Leaders & Ecumenism

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 doctrinecontinue 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 menMatthew 15: 8-9

O house of Jacob, come and let us walk In the light of the LordFor 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

Roma Downey.-‘Touched by an Angel’ star. She is a devote Catholic but many evangelicals are promoting her : We will Stand ,  Mrs Downey has a spiritual Psychology degree from a New Age teaching institution, she admits that she is a fan of Eastern Mysticism teacher Eckhard Tolle.  She practices mysticism, Catholicism, and necromancy (seeking communication with the dead). On live television, Downey communicated with her dead mother through a medium. Necromancy is strictly forbidden in the bible. She and her husband both Catholics,  produced Son of God movie & the  ‘Bible Series“.  They are associated with many known pastors like Rick Warren , Joel Osteen, T,D.Jakes, Hillsong’s Church, Liberty University and many others, also friends with Oprah.

Fuller Theological Seminary , Openly Ecumenical, promotes good relations with Catholics, see Alumni (Rick Warren, John Piper, Rob Bell, Peter Wagner, Richard Foster, Che Ahn, etc).  Charles Fuller with Calvinist Harold Okenga co-founded Fuller Theological Seminary and the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE). Fuller also is the founder of the Fuller Evangelistic Foundation (John Macarthur’s father was the Director of Fuller Evangelistic Foundation). Ecumenic. Henrietta Mears was a close friend and coworker of Charles Fuller who promoted her on his radio broadcasts. C.

Billy & Franklin, Graham and Catholics. Graham thinks everyone goes to heaven even if they don’t know Jesus, he sent converted Catholics in his crusades back to their  Catholic churches. B.

-Benny Hinn video. & Susanne (WoF), In that video she made the very irreverent statement “You need a Holy Ghost enema right up your rear end!” She is a member of End-Time Handmaiden, & a fan of Mother Teresa. I remember I was so happy when I saw this crusade with the nuns on 1995, thinking God was going to reveal Himself to them, but nothing happened. Many in my family who are Charismatic Catholics still lost, they don’t change, they need to believe the true gospel. I was a partner (prayer & financial support) with Benny Hinn ministries for 3 years. Please understand that exposing all this is very saddening, I don’t like it, but it’s necessary so others won’t get hurt. Hinn hosted Canon Andre White, a Knight Templar & ecumenic Anglican Archbishop, who is associated to the Knight of Malta Mashesh Chavda & Todd Bentley. Hinn threatens and curses people who exposes him.

Teaches Divine Union, Ekstasis worship, etc. She was the pastor and leader of Todd Bentley and Joshua Mills.  Patricia King stated on Elijah List “I had a spiritual encounter regarding the Blue Flame of the Lord.Her logo is an X with a blue flame. But in witchcraft the spirit flame is blue. She says is a former witch, but then how doesn’t she knows?  (Please always pray for God’s revelation & protection in the name of His son Jesus Christ before watching information from occults): Check video, from min.0:17- 0:45.  Also from a witch’s site: “A beautiful blue flame will appear, … We consider the flame to be sacred, and we use it to bless objects, empower tools, and create our ritual circles/sacred space.” paganlibrary. More about her doctrine. She promotes Catholic ministries and gave a prophetic word for the Catholic Church on Oct.2013, about “a move of God coming to the Catholic Church” without them leaving the Catholic Church. I’m sorry but I don’t believe it, specially after knowing what she teaches and knowing how far away is the Catholic Church from the Word of God.

* I read of a movement in the Catholic Church that is requesting prayer for a New Pentecost, and the account is in a book written by an ecumenical & false teacher.   I believe something is being planned, like a fake revival among some of the Catholic youth.  This could convince many Christians that they are part of the body of Christ. The Vatican is trying to unite all religions in one, and this fake revival among them could help accelerate the unification between evangelicals and Catholics. Time will tell.

 

 

Evangelical Leaders & Ecumenism – Pt.1

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Evangelical Leaders & Ecumenism

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

The most painful part is all the people that they are causing to fall away from the truth of the gospel of Christ. We ask you to please pray for all the sheep that are being harmed or affected by these movements, there are a lot of sincere and God  loving Christians following their wrong teachings. (Our church got involved with some belonging to the NAR movement, we were baby Christians at the time and we embraced them not knowing, latter the Lord opened our eyes). If we get the opportunity to talk to them let us make sure we do it out of love and not because we are trying to win any arguments. Remember we work to glorify God, not ourselves.  As the Lord leads please also pray for the leaders and promoters of these ecumenical movement, that the Lord may open their eyes and grant them repentance. Teachers will be judged more severely (James 3:1).

The intention with the following list is just to show how some known leaders are getting involved with ecumenism & Catholic Mysticism (Lectio divina, Contemplative prayer, etc.), so Christians can exercise biblical discernment, we try to prove it with evidence in the links.  If one of your favorite preachers is in the ecumenic list please don’t get offended and don’t dismiss the warning, but just pray to God for revelation and pray for that preacher also. We are not trying to discuss here about their doctrines, even there may be a link or more doing that. Some of these teachers/leaders are:

-John Arnott, & Carol- (NAR) Pastors of ‘Catch the Fire’ former Toronto Airport Fellowship, (a Vineyard group) of the Toronto Revival–  J. Arnott was a speaker on Fire & Fusion Conf. 2014 evangelicals with Catholics. Also see picture above of ecumenical meeting with pope Francis. The Arnotts were part of the group of apostles that commissioned Todd Bentley.  See Bentley in their church of Toronto, also Bill Johnson at min 4:31. Here the Arnotts with Benny Hinn.

Heidi Baker in Bethel Church of Bill Johnson. (NAR), (Repeating over and over a word is called Mantra in New Age, a technique used to enter into a “trance” or altered state of consciousness, also used in self-hypnosis). She is a fan of Mother Theresa, her organization ‘Iris Ministries’ (Bethel Pastor Kris Vallotton is the Director, & secretary Stacey Campbell) is the major component of Partners in Harvest, under the leadership of  ecumenical apostles John and Carol Arnott”. She also organized the anointing ceremony for Todd Bentley at Lakeland, Florida and had worked with Bentley in Africa. Christianity Today explains that “One night, she had a vision of Jesus in which she literally ate his flesh and drank his blood.” The article further reports “Scholar McClymond describes Heidi as a ‘practical mystic, like Teresa of Avila.’” She and her husband Rolland form part of the Revival Alliance, together with the Arnotts, Bill & Beni Johnson, Randy Clark, etc. all belonging to the NAR. Also check this Video.

Be Still DVD.  An infomercial of Contemplative Prayer. Presenters include Beth Moore, Max Lucado, Richard Foster, Dallas Willard and many others.

Rob Bell, (Neo Calv. & Emergent)

Todd Bentley, (NAR) Lakeland Revival. He teaches Contemplative Prayer.  When some discerning pastors began to question his doctrine a group of NAR’s apostles supported & commissioned him on June 2008, 2 weeks later his sin of adultery & drunkenness was exposed by the secular media (ABC’s Nightline). He divorced his wife Shonnah and the revival was over on August 2008. A year later and already married with Jessa, he was restored to work at Rick Joyner’s church and recommended by Rick Joyner, Bill Johnson &  Jack Deere (at the time Deere was a bible teacher at Mike Bickle’s Church) all 3 were in charge of the restoration process.  His new wife works now with him.  See Bentley preaching in Rick Joyner’s Church and being rebuked publicly by some Christian leaders. More here about these revivals.

Mike Bickle (NAR) Bickle founder of IHOP. His “calling” began with a prophet named Augustine Alcala. Then 2 prophets, Paul Cain who worked with Oral Roberts & W. Branham (& who later confessed homosexuality & alcoholism) & Bob Jones (also involved in sexual misconduct) laid down the blue prints of his ministries. Bickle has Catholic speakers at his conferences. He states “Everybody is called to live in the contemplative lifestyle. Everyone! Everyone! Everyone!” & also teaches contemplative prayer.  He stated: “I want this book to be the manual for IHOPKC.” referring to a Catholic Mystics book “Fire with In“.  Also check hereTruman’s Prayer Center,  Mike Bickle is an apostle in the Apostolic Reformation Movement who thinks they are greater than the apostles in Biblical times. Bickle is the executive director of the multiple ministries of IHOP and is the senior pastor of Forerunner Christian Fellowship. “This is not all about “prayer.” The Charisma article explains how prayer is being turned into activism, and this is the activism that is now becoming overly political. According to Rick Joyner Bickle is also a Knight of Malta. He is part of the agenda of The Order of the Mustard Seed.  More here, also check IHOP in pt.2. New:  Bickle with pope Francis!

William  ‘Jerry’ Boykin, (NAR) LTG (Ret.), Speaker, promoter of ecumenism. He holds the title of Grand Chancellor of the ecumenical order of knight of Malta. He’s partner in ministry with Rick Joyner & , Freemason Nicholas Papanicolaou, The Prince Grand Master of Knights of Malta.  They had the blessings of 2 popes in their Knight of Malta Web site, that later were removed,  this is a screen-shot. Boykin’s website admits to being part of Billy Graham‘s ecumenic  Lausanne Movement.Boykin helped organize the use of abusive treatment of prisoners in Iraq:  The Tsunami Headed for the White House. He speaks now at several Calvary Chapels.   Video.

-Francis Chan, (Neo Calv.), He seems a very nice person, but nice people can also get deceived, please pray for him. He endorsed New Apostolic teacher Mike Bickle & speaks at his church. He spoke at Rick Warrens’ Saddleback Church and was overflowing with words of praise and admiration for him. He also spoke at Dublin International Eucharist Conference – Dublin, Ireland on July 2012 a Catholic conference. Chan apologized to his church for inviting ex Catholic Mike Gendron, a Reformer like him, who believes Catholics need salvation, Chan cut him off and told the audience it was unloving to insinuate that Catholics are not Christians. Chan practicing Catholic mysticism Lectio Divina with Reformers John Piper, Louie Giglio, Beth Moore & Reformed Rapper Lacrae  at ‘Passion 2012’ Conference (See about Lectio Divina ). In his book ‘Crazy Love ‘ he quotes Henri Nouwen who was a Roman Catholic priest, that was into mysticism. He also praises Shane Clairborne author of “Irresistible Revolution”, who worked  about 3 months with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, & founded a group of new monks called the Simple Way, a form of new monasticism.

Mahesh Chavda, He is ecumenical and a Knight of Malta, knighted with Rick Joyner and Bob Connor (according to Joyner’s own words, I heard the tape but don’t want to promote it).  He has been working to unite Catholics with protestants. He’s a pastor and mentor of the Anglican and ecumenic Knight Templar http://templartimes.smotj.org/, Cannon Andrew White, in the video you’ll see Todd Bentley talking to Chavda’s wife. On some of his meetings fall gold glitter and feathers, same like Bill Johnson and others like them. People have tested the gold dust falling in different places an none of them are gold, like people from Bethel had their particles tested and found they are NOT gold but glitter.  You can see this video about Signs and Wonders.

Randy Clark , (NAR) Was a pastor of a Vineyard Church, founded ‘Global Awakening. He started the Toronto blessing, but he received the anointing from Rodney Howard Browne. R. Clark was one of the ‘apostles’ that commissioned Todd Bentley.  He says:”I believe that the ecumenical movement in the body of Christ is very important to God”, Charisma Magazine.  His page mentions: Randy’s ministry crosses denominational lines. From the Westminster Chapel in London, to the St. Thomas the Apostle Roman Catholic Church in Australia. He also promotes Catholic ministries, and his Healing school (teaching material and students) is also ecumenical.

Kenneth Copeland, & Gloria, (Word of Faith), with pope Francis on picture above. He was Freemason Oral Roberts’ disciple & his personal Pilot. Mr Copeland stated: “You’re all God. You don’t have a God living in you; you are one! … When I read in the Bible where God tells Moses, ‘I AM,’ I say, ‘Yah, I AM too!‘” –  ‘The Force of Love,’ Kenneth Copeland, tape BBC-56. Also check ‘Are the Copelands Freemasons?”

-David Crowder, Musician- Contemplative advocate & Catholic Mysticism.  Crowder is author of Praise Habit (referring to the habits worn by Catholic nuns): Finding God in Sunsets and Sushi, where he encourages the practice of lectio divina and references and quotes contemplative/emerging figure Walter Brueggemann a number times.

Ecumenical Movement & Evangelicals – Within the Church

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Ecumenical Movement & Evangelicals

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.

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? and what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? and what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.  2 Corinthians 6:14-18

Ecumenical Movement & Evangelicals – Introduction

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Ecumenical Movement & Evangelicals

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

Sound doctrine is very important to God. His word instruct us to persevere, to hold fast to the doctrine that was given to the apostles. 1 Corinthians 15:1-2, 1 Timothy 6:3-5, 2 Timothy 1:13, 2 John 1:9-11. We can avoid apostasy (departing from the faith) by learning & searching the Words inspired by the Holy Spirit (the bible), and comparing them with what we hear from others.  An absence of careful examination of the words of men in the church today is leading to a great falling away from the truth of the gospel.

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so.  Acts 17:11
