I came across this photo on Beni Johnson’s Facebook page. Beni included the following description with the photo:

“Oh you know just a little soaking with the youth today. Berne, Switzerland conference. That was fun.”

In this article, I will provide a definition of “soaking,” its roots, and how Bethel Redding’s engagement and promotion of the practice serve as yet more evidence that it is not the Holy Spirit at work in this cult.

“Soaking” or “Soaking Prayer” is defined as follows:

“Since the 1990s there has been an increased focus on mysticism within various segments of Christianity. Bordering on the esoteric, these mystical experiences broaden the division between a ‘factual faith’ and a ‘felt faith,’ and threaten to replace sound biblical teaching with emotion-driven response. Soaking prayer is one such mystical activity. It is described as resting in God’s presence…

“Want Some False Doctrine in Your Life? Try These Handy Tips!” by Steven Kozar

 

Don’t be shy about it-admit it: false doctrine is fun and, well, it just feels good. Here are some handy tips to keep you fully deceived and incapable of discernment:

 

1. Always think to yourself: “I know what he meant” when false teachings are taught; don’t listen to the actual words themselves. Pretend you are giving someone the “benefit of the doubt” when you’re actually permitting bad teaching. Also, bad teaching isn’t so bad if the pastor tells an emotional story to drive home the heresy; and he must be telling the truth if he starts to cry, especially at the same point of the story in multiple services!

2. Here’s a handy saying: “No church is perfect!” The assumption here is that it’s not of any value to carefully examine doctrine because all churches are wrong in one way or another, so just accept anything. If you go to the church because “you feel comfortable there” and the “worship team really rocks” you’ll probably never have to think much about doctrine anyway. This can also be modified as: “No pastor is perfect!” False teachers and mediocre pastors really appreciate it when you think this way.

3. Focus on your feelings rather than the clear teachings of Scripture. Because you’re a sinner, this will be very easy. For added validation of your false beliefs, convince yourself that God told you to disobey Him and somehow violate His word; but don’t use such obvious language. For example, say: “I really feel that God spoke to my heart, that’s why I believe it’s okay to       (fill in the blank with whatever sin and/or false doctrine you want). A great little catch phrase to instill this principle would be something like this: “Theology will never change a man as much as a direct encounter with God.” Of course, if you really had a direct encounter with God you’d probably be dead…

“How to Know (For Sure!) That You Are Part of The Great Falling Away” by Steven Kozar

     The Great Falling Away is going to be, well… GREAT! 
And lets face it, no one wants to miss out on the Next Big Thing.

Remember,God wants you to Dream Big! He wants you to Be Great! So, of course He wants you to be a big part of The Great Falling Away! Isn’t it exciting to think that something incredible is right around the corner-and you get to be a big part of it?! Chances are you’re already clueless and headed towards destruction, but just to make sure, follow these simple guidelines:

First and foremost, skip past the clear teachings of Jesus and the Apostles in the Bible- it’s full of warnings to keep you from falling away, so, as much as possible, don’t even read it. This won’t be a problem for most Christians, since they haven’t been reading their Bibles all along. There are lots of options to fill your time while you avoid reading God’s Word. For example, you can watch “Christian” television as much as you want, because you’ll probably never hear God’s Word taught correctly anyway. Or you may want to go to your neighborhood “Christian” bookstore-it’s shelves are full of unbiblical books that will keep you in the dark about the apostasy that surrounds you. If you’re like most Christians, none of this will be a problem because you’ve been filling your mind with pagan television, movies, magazines and every other form of mind-numbing entertainment for most of your life already. And don’t forget, on Sunday mornings you’ll want to stay dumbed-down by overly-emotional, shallow and “seeker-friendly” motivational speeches disguised as sermons; that way you’ll be in full conformity to the coming doom.

On top of that, it really helps if you don’t even believe there will be a Great Falling Away, because after all, who wants to focus on all that negative stuff anyway?

SPEAK UNTO US SMOOTH THINGS

Friday Church News Notes, June 5, 2015

Source:  Way of Life Literature, David Cloud

“Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us” (Isaiah 30:10-11).

In Isaiah’s day, Israel rejected God’s Word and tried to corrupt the prophets. The people professed to love God and they participated in the temple rituals, but they despised God’s holy laws. They wanted to live as they pleased. They wanted preaching, but not right preaching. They didn’t want to hear reproof of sin and sound doctrine. They wanted to hear “smooth things” that encouraged them regardless of how they lived and that did not interfere with their plans. They wanted God, but not “the Holy One.” They would rather hear “deceits” than the truth. Israel has continued in this terrible condition until today.

She rejected the greatest Prophet and Preacher, Jesus, her own Messiah. The Isaiah 30 passage is also an apt description of apostate Christianity as Paul prophesied in 2 Timothy 4:3-4. They profess to love Christ and the Bible, but in reality they love their own lusts.

They flock to hear teachers who downplay repentance and conversion and holy living, who preach smooth things and invent fables such as gibberish tongues, spirit slaying, laughing revivals, non-judgmentalism, self-esteemism, positive confession, the veneration of Mary, contemplative prayer, rock & roll worship, theistic evolution, ecumenism, non-essential doctrine, and universalism.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Timothy 4:3-4).

As with 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, Eugene Peterson’s The Message again removes specific reference to homosexuality as a sin in 1 Timothy 1:8-11. According to The Message:

“It’s true that moral guidance and counsel need to be given, but the way you say it and to whom you say it are as important as what you say. It’s obvious, isn’t it, that the law code isn’t primarily for people who live responsibly, but for the irresponsible, who defy all authority, riding roughshod over God, life, sex, truth, whatever! They are contemptuous of this great Message I’ve been put in charge of by this great God.” (Bold mine)

Yes, this “great Message” indeed. The Message, really, is simply a forerunner to what will be a “christless,” sinless Bible.

Here is 1 Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB): But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact…

The New Apostolic Reformation is not an organization. These are networks of “apostles” and “prophets” who believe the Second Apostolic Age is here. This means the age of denominations has passed and it is these “anointed” apostles and prophets who are to govern the church.

From the NAR we have such luminaries as C. Peter Wagner, James Goll, Mike Bickle, Bill Johnson, Mark Chironna, Brian Simmons, Cindy Jacobs, and many others.

These people are Dominionists–they believe Christ cannot or will not come back until Christians have taken control of the earth.

Cindy Jacobs actually told a rapt congregation that the Lord’s Prayer is really about Dominionism. [1]

NAR adherents believe gaining societal control for Christ means dominating the Seven Mountains (spheres) of Culture.

Now, just as “God” showed Cindy Jacobs the Lord’s Prayer is about Dominionism, Lana Vawser, another false prophet, is claiming God told her this:

“Suddenly I heard the words ‘Seven mountains of culture’

These Dominionists are becoming mainstream. How can the Lord’s Prayer be so easily hijacked? People who do not read their Bibles are falling for such nonsense, often under the disguise of patriotism.

Did you know The Lord’s Prayer is really about transforming nations? Did you know sin came into the world because we didn’t understand our Dominionist commission? Neither did I.

So you see, this is exactly why we need the leadership (?) of New Apostolic Reformation prophets like Cindy Jacobs. Please pardon my sarcasm.

27 seconds into the video: “…and God showed me [The Lord’s Prayer] was a prayer and every part of the prayer is an element on how to reform and transform a nation.”

53 seconds into the video: The Lord’s Prayer “is the prayer of intercession that will help bring into manifestation the original Genesis Mandate to fill, subdue, multiply and have dominion in the earth.”

1:24 seconds into the video: “This was our commission in the Garden and it never changed…because we didn’t understand our commission sin came into the world and it began to deteriorate the ability we had to…
