Read this devotional thought, written around
a half century ago, for the reason we should continue to say today "to
the word and to the testimony"! "But there were false prophets
also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you,
who privily shall bring in damnable heresies ..." 2 Pet. 2:1
Prophecy by Dean & Laura VanDruff, 1996
"As spiritual adultery increases in the church, false prophets will
flourish as highly sought after speakers, and as Christians accept more
of these false teachings indiscriminately, many will fall away, believing
in a phony "faith". Since we have been warned, it might be wise to seek
insight into how to discern false prophecy - what are false prophets likely
to say? What are they like?"
(3) The Kansas
City Prophets by Bob Hunter, 1995
An expose' of the Kansas City Prophets including Paul Cain, Bob Jones,
John Paul Jackson and other false prophets. Their prophesies catapulted
the Toronto "Blessing" and subsequent Pensacola "Outpouring" into existence.
These men are revered as prophets by these movements who view themselves
as Joel's Army.
Prophets by Dr. Kenneth Johnson, 1994
"When a false prophet is caught he will say “OK. But I’ve repented
and the LORD has restored me to the office of the prophet or ‘The Prophetic’.
You have to obey me again now.” This is why the LORD said you shall never
be afraid of (listen to) him again. Yes, the LORD will forgive him if he
repents. He may become a fine Bible teacher. The LORD is merciful, so that
you will not be constantly fooled by false prophets, Because He will never
use him in that way again. "
Kilpatrick Of Brownsville AOG, Pensacola, FL Is Now OFFICIALLY A False
July 4, 1997 has come and gone and Hank Hanegraaff
is still alive and his ministry is doing fine. Here
is how Hanegraaff responded to this ugly false prophecy. Brothers and sisters
in Christ -- now is the time to decide. For those of you attending Brownsville
"Outpouring" meetings in Pensacola ... are you going to continue to willingly
sit under the teaching and prophecy of this man in this church or allow
people under your accountability to do so? Is the Assemblies of God going
to take scripturally appropriate action in this matter? Here is their official
response when asked recently to comment on the Pensacola "Outpouring" in
letter from Thomas E. Trask, General Superintendant of the Assmeblies
Of God. What about the rest of the false teaching and prophecy of this
"counterfeit" revival movement? Check out my compilation of quotes in an
article called "By Your Words" - Quotes From Third Wave Leaders" for just
a small dose of the false teaching from the leaders of this movement. It's
time to take a stand on this matter, fellow Christians! Time to be counted.
No more wishy-washy "well, there are good and bad things in this movement
but it's basically good" or "I'd rather see the devil and flesh manifested
in church than nothing discernable happening at all". This is not an issue
that can be "balanced" away by a good old American sense of "fair play".
We as Christians are to hold to the objective truth of God's Word, or else
we cannot call ourselves Christians. It's time for the true body of Christ
to be heard on this matter. Where is the outcry? Where is the indignation
that this man has dared to make false prophesies about the demise of a
fellow Christian and attribute them to a conversation he had with God Almighty?
Has the Christian community been silenced in fear of being labeled "mockers"
by Steve Hill in his book "The God Mockers" when, in fact, all Christians
should hold to and defend sound doctrine as did the Bereans when they tested
what was being taught to them? Where is the disgust at the fact that Kilpatrick
made a deceitful apology denying that he prophesied and published it all
over the Internet? Where is the outrage that he now continues to spread
false stories in his church about Hank Hanegraaff? Where is the ire of
God's people when this man dared to presume to order God around by speaking
false "proclamations" "into God's ears"? What is your response, people
of God? We had better start cleaning house before thousands of children
and youth are exposed to the ugly manifestations, deceitful testimonies,
false teaching and false prophecy of this "counterfeit" revival movement!
(6) Benny Hinn
and Necromancy (Talking to the Dead) by Joseph R. Chambers, 1997
Benny Hinn "stated clearly that he had seen saints ("dead saints")
and that they talked to him, gave him instructions, and told him they were
praying for him. This is clearly necromancy or communication with the dead.
He went further to state that his necromancy was Biblically supported by
Jesus Christ’s experience on the Mount of Transfiguration when Moses and
Elijah talked to the Lord."
Hagin by Rev. Robert S. Liichow, 1997
"Literally hundreds of thousands of people are being influenced
by this man's heretical teachings, which are now being propagated by his
son and grandson and thousands of Rhema graduates in thousands of Rhema
churches around the world. Brother Hagin has duplicated himself thousands
of times over and his error is widespread. "
Hickey by Rev. Robert S. Liichow, 1997
"From her school (and these others) a new generation of Word of
Faith ministries is being grown, with more and more error and heresy. Remember
heresy does not get better, it does not improve with age, like a fine wine.
It continues to drift further and further into darkness. The only way heresy
is stopped in the Church is by godly people standing up for the truth and
being willing to swim upstream against what is popular. I pray you are
I will be some of these people."
(9) Benny Hinn
by Rev. Robert S. Liichow, 1997
"Consider his teachings extremely dangerous to your spiritual health
(and do not let him lay his hands on you)."
(10) The Challenging
Counterfeit - A Study Of Spiritualism by Raphael Gasson,The Assemblies
Of God Publishing House, Copywrite 1996
This is a book about Spiritualism and Spiritism by a man who was miraculously
saved out of that movement. This is the last chapter of this book. Notice
the parallels to what is going on in the Third Wave, counterfeit revival
movement of today -- in the Toronto “Blessing” and Pensacola “Outpouring”
churches and leaders that have received “the anointing”. It appears that
the enemy has not changes his tactics too much, only that today they are
being evidenced in churches that formerly considered themselves to be doctrinally
sound. Connections to Spiritualism/Spiritism have been documented in the
faith healers of this same time period of the early 1900s, such as William
Branham and Kathryn Kuhlman. Other more recent
individuals have been linked to necromancy such as Benny
Hinn. The same techniques and manifestations are also now present in
the counterfeit revival, including Indian-style chanting, visions where
dead “Christians” appear and give advice, and ugly degrading "manifestations"
of the “spirit”. Test the spirits and judge for yourself where this “new
revelation” and “anointing” is coming from. This is an old book and may
be out of print. However, it is still listed with the Library Of Congress
and the new publisher is Logos International of Plainfield, NJ, 1979. Notice
the original publisher was the Assemblies of God Publishing House. Ironic,
in view of the Brownsville A/G in Pensacola, FL."

"In response to numerous inquiries, Trinity

Brown's False Prophecy by Bob Hunter & Debra Bouey, 1998
"One of the foremost theologians and spokemen
for the Messianic Jewish Congregation (MJC) has informed us of an embarrassing
prophecy given by Dr. Brown. Given the international nature of his ministry,
this spokesman wishes to remain anonymous, but reader inquiries related
to any cited material will be forwarded to him and he will reply privately
with the inquirer."
Final Quest: A Review and Critique by Eric S. Weiss, 1998
"On balance, however, I think that there is
more in this book (by Rick Joyner) that readers should be warned against
than encouraged to accept, and I believe that the objections and concerns
I express here can be sufficiently documented from the book (and from Scripture,
where appropriate) so that my criticisms won't seem unwarranted or unreasonable.
Since I am primarily writing about what I perceive to be problems or errors,
much here will be negative. As I've mentioned, the Christian buying public
is already saying many good things about this book. The reader will have
to decide if such positive acceptance is warranted."
(15) Kenneth Hagin and
the Spirit of the Serpent by Joseph R. Chambers, D.D., 1998
"The final chapter of Mr. Hagin is being written
even as I write this article. Our video
by this title tells the whole truth. The serpent spirit has grown in his
teaching and methods until I believe the real source is being made manifest.
He just conducted a Kenneth Hagin Holy Ghost meeting in Chesterfield, MO.
The meeting was held from October 12th to October 24th. On the third night
he began to manifest this spirit with his tongue sticking out and wiggling
like a serpent’s tongue. He also began to hiss. On Thursday night, as he
began to hiss, many of the people began to slither down out of their seats
feet first. Some of the people would hiss back at him. The emotional response
of the audience is indescribable. Kenneth Hagin and many of the people
became insanely "drunk." (This link

can we discern false teachers? by Biblical Studies Foundation,
"There are many godless guides who would lead
us to the wide gate and the way which leads to destruction. These false
teachers are not only blind themselves, but they lead others to destruction
with them. It is the Lord Who will pronounce the final verdict and Who
will sentence the false prophets to everlasting torment."
Investigations - Corruption in Televangelism and Paganism in the American
Church A speech presented Sept. 23, 1994, at the Philadelphia
Conference on Cults, the Occult and the Word Faith Movement, by Ole Anthony
The lives and messages of the televangelists
reveal a progressively straying path toward paganism. But God has allowed
them to come to prominence so the church can see the reflection of itself
in them, and repent.
And Answers: The Televangelist Investigations by Ole Anthony
Paul calls for us to "Prove all things; hold
fast to that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil" (I Thes.
5:21,22). The Christian message should be able to withstand any scrutiny.
Believers are called to "try the spirits, whether they are of God, because
many false prophets are gone out into the world" (I John 4:1). The TV evangelists
have barged into our living rooms with their broadcasts and turned the
spotlight on themselves. They have demanded attention, so we're giving
it to them.
(19) What Benefit Is The
"Prophetic Movement"? by Inner-City Christian Discernment Ministry,
Ask yourself the following questions (or ask
a prophet if you know one): Has any restored prophet brought any
divine insight into serious theological issues which have divided the Church?
NO. Has any restored prophet brought unity to the Body of Christ due to
their insights? NO. Has any restored prophet ever foretold anything of
great consequence to the Church or community (warning of terrorist bombings,
stock market crashes,assassinations, etc.)? NO. Has any restored prophet
been called upon to locate criminals, or locate missing children, or to
solve crimes? NO. Why Not?
Hagin - False Prophet by Rev. Robert S. Liichow, 1998
"Mr. Hagin has long been touted as a prophet by many within the
charismatic movement for years. Without a doubt, all people within
the Word of Faith Movement look to Mr. Hagin as a genuine prophet of God.
The facts seem to indicate otherwise! Here are three examples of
Hagin's prophetic ability - all of which failed to come to pass."
(21) Sick Healers?
by Rev. Robert S. Liichow, 1998
"Probably the saddest "cut" of all is the FACT that the majority
of what the Word of Faith/Prophetic Movement charismaniacs teach does not
even work in their own sorry lives. I do not deny that the Lord our God
is a Healer - - - but He does so according to His sovereign will. We, His
children DO NOT command healing to "be."
(22) Teach Healing?
by Rev. Robert S. Liichow, 1998
"Got this in the mail a little while back and I thought it would
be interesting for people to see that these folks at Toronto believe they
can teach you how to heal the sick. This is nothing new, because
the "Happy Hunters" have been holding How to Heal the Sick Seminars for
many many years. In fact, my wife and I attended one in Ohio, and
got to work directly with the Hunters. Can't you see the Apostle Paul holding
a healing seminar in Ephesus (I can't)."

Hagin - Another Failed Prophecy by Contenders, 1999
"Another Failed Prophecy! Kenneth Hagin Prophecy For October In
July Kenneth Hagin issued a prophecy which indicates that the great revival

the critics, the rapture of the church, the "cleansing" that New Agers
have spoken of? You decide."

Mark Of False Teachers: Twisting The Scriptures by The Watchman
"The apostle Peter wrote
describing Paul's epistles, "...in which are some things hard to be understood,
which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest,
as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction" (2 Peter
3:16). There are many individual powerful practices which characterize
the methods of deception employed by false teachers, but the twisting of
Scripture is universal among them."
The New Prophets an extract from the book by Bill Randles, 1999
Influential 'prophets' in
the US are claiming to be an end-time super-army for the Lord. But their
'prophesies' are often wrong. Pentecostal pastor
Bill Randles investigates . . . "One consistent characteristic of the
new prophets is their insistence that the New Testament prophets do not
have to be subjected to the tests of Deuteronomy (13.1-3 and 18.22)." You

many congregations Biblical truth has been treated lightly while social

hold on Biblical values and Biblical truth will not be able to survive."

Broadcasting Network Teachers by The Contenders, 1999
Word-Faith movement is far more dangerous than any of the cults because
they have infiltrated the church
leave the distinct impression with the secular world that their brand of
"Christianity" truly represents Christianity.1 In truth, it represents
the worst teachings ever to go under the name "Christian." It is unfortunate
that Christian leaders are so afraid of Paul Crouch that they won't stand
to him, but continue to broadcast their programs on TBN or commend TBN's
work. If you are a TBN supporter who thinks people like myself are causing
division, read what these people say carefully, then ask
"What would a non-Christian think if TBN was his first introduction to
Christianity and he heard this stuff?" On October 29th, 1999, on a CNN
Chat session, Matt Crouch told me that doctrine was not important."
Do We Discern False Teachers? by Biblical Studies Foundation, 1999
7:13-23 - False prophets are particularly dangerous because they appear
to be genuine. They seemingly have the credentials of authority. What are
these credentials? Jesus calls them ‘sheep’s clothing’ (verse 15). The
outward forms would incline one to believe these false prophets to be reliable
guides. They may wear a distinctive garb which sets them apart as leaders.
They may have the title ‘reverend.’ They may be men who hold positions
of religious leadership. They may well have graduated from a divinity school.
Indeed, they might even be seminary professors. Judging on the basis of
external indications we might wrongly assume them to be reliable guides,
but we must not evaluate them on such external evidence."
Leaders by L. Eve Engelbrite, Cult Awareness Information Center,
false leaders can be divided into secular (EST, humanism, communism, etc.;
example Herod in Acts 12:21-23), and religious (Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism,
spiritualism, etc.). False leaders who were previously Christian can be
divided into the morally apostate
John 3:4-10) and the theologically apostate (1 John 2:18-27)."
- Beware Of False Prophets by Paul Becker, A Voice In The Wilderness,
from Romans 16. "These who -claim- to be "uniting" everybody are actually
the ones -CAUSING- the "divisions". What "division" is this? Dividing people
AWAY FROM God's Word. Away from God's Doctrine. Doctrine is what brings
"unity" to Believers. (1Cor1:10) So when they throw God's Doctrine out
the window, they are dividing God's people."
And False Teaching by Shirley Ann Miller from the book, "Anti-Spirits
and False Teaching" and Lampholder Ezine series on "Mind Control "Lampholder
gave every person on the face of the Earth "a mind." When you suppress
or suspend the thought process you essentially disconnect the "whole" person.
God made mankind to interact with Him by a renewal of mind (the soul),
spirit, and body. When God speaks to us through His Holy Spirit, He speaks
through our spirit to the mind, but the mind (upon being renewed in the
Spirit) confirms the Holy Spirit promptings and aligns with the Word of
God. The supernatural receives "spiritual" messages that manifest themselves
from the spiritual realm into the physical through "the senses and the
passive mind." If you disconnect your thought process, you open yourself
to receive whatever supernatural, spiritual manifestations happen to be
manifesting their presence at the time, and by opening yourself up to anything
but the Holy Spirit, you WILL find yourself dealing with "other spirits."
Remember: Always investigate the source and test the spirits "...to see
whether they are of God...(1 John 4:1). As the anti-spirits plot in the
air and work on earth against God, believers must continually fight back
with spiritual power through prayer and intercession."

Fatal Errors Common Among False Teachers by Mike Gendron, Proclaiming
the Gospel, 9/08, PDF
Since we are now living in the age of religious tolerance and ecumenical
unity, there are some people who will immediately call this article unloving
and divisive. Others will ask, "What right do you have to judge another
religion?" The answer is given in Scripture. All God-fearing people are
called to make right judgments, judgments that have already been established
by the objective principles of God's Word John 7:24). There may
be nothing more important than warning people who are being deceived about
their eternal destiny. If we do not lovingly confront them with God's Gospel,
they may never know how to escape the eternal fire of God's punishment.
Clearly, the most unloving thing we can do is to ignore them and let them
continue down the road to destruction. For this reason, I am
always willing to offend people with the offense and exclusivity
of the Gospel in the hopes that God may grant some of them repentance leading
to a knowledge of the truth 2 Tim. 2: 25). Let us look at three fatal errors
of false prophets and how to handle them.

(70) False Teachers ... REVISITED!
by Sandy Simpson. ACT, 9/03/09
I often receive requests to present updated false teachings and
false prophecies by the myriad of heretics out there. We do try to
keep up with all the latest. But I have to remind people that those
we have exposed as false on our site have not repented of what they have
already done in the past, which is why they are still on our site.
So what they are doing now has no relevance as to whether or not they are
now to be considered a true Biblical teacher. If and when they repent,

by Pastor Larry DeBruyn, 9/24/09
So it's truly a sad day when we see those professing to know God
believing and behaving as if they do not. So it's significant to note that
the divine judgment was to begin in the sanctuary and then work its way
out through Jerusalem and the rest of the entire nation (Compare 1 Peter
4:17.). This order of judgment compelled Paul to command the congregation
at Rome: "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions
and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid
them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their
own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the
simple" (Romans 16:17-18, KJV). But if we are to engage in such marking,
we ought to be reminded that the accompanying emotion ought to be one of
grief. Yet we ought also to be reminded that in the end those who refuse
to mark false teachers may not be marked by the Lord to be spared divine

John’s first epistle was written to restore the true knowledge of
God, to Christians whose faith had been undermined by an early form of
Gnosticism. A “Gnostic” is a Christian who claims a special, mystical knowledge
of God, which is unique to conventional Christians. Gnostics re-define
what it means to know God, what prayer is, how revelation is received,
who God is, what it means to be spiritual, etc. The effect is that so-called
“normal” Christians began to doubt their own knowledge and experience of

God’s People Trust in a Lie… by Pastor Bill Randles, 4/21/10
It is happening all over again. In the church, as in the last days

and the destruction of the temple, Christians are being inoculated
to conviction and preparedness by the soothing Words of false prophets
to Ponder - Todd Bentley, Benny Hinn, Rick Joyner, and False Teachers
by Bud Press, Christian Research Service, 6/10/10
By their own doing, false teachers are plagued with contradictions,
which is a natural consequence to being double-minded. Gradually, false
teachers tell their stories and, at the same time, teach their followers
to believe in their dreams, visions, and revelations--despite the Biblical
warnings. And because many modern-day false prophets and false teachers
claim to see "Jesus" and have direct, verbal communication with God, their
words are slowly phased in as the word of God, while God's inspired written
words are phased out. As such, so-called "new revelations from God" spewed
from the mouths of false teachers today are likely to change into something
totally different tomorrow. Indeed, contradictions and double-mindedness
go hand in hand, both of which should prompt red flags of discernment.

or Sinister?- How to know when your church has become a cult by

Everything is about CONTROL. The main tools used to control
members are INTIMIDATION and MANIPULATION. The intimidation and manipulation
are very subtle and disguised with a false sense of love and concern.
It’s all a strategic COURTSHIP. Most people come to church with a NEED.
The need can be physical, emotional, financial, social, or spiritual. Having
that need puts a person in a very vulnerable state of mind and they are
searching for fulfillment of the need. CULT PASTORS are searching
for vulnerable people that they can control and manipulate.
(80) Harold Camping Strikes (Out) Again!
by Sandy Simpson, 12/5/10
Imagine my shock when I heard that Harold Camping was up to his
former tricks in predicting, using some kind of fancy numerology, that
Jesus Christ will return on May 21, 2011. I quickly thought about
how I would cancel my plane reservations to speak at a discernment conference.
I mean, if Jesus is coming back then there will no longer be a need to
expose false teachers because they will have met their demise along with
their leader. But then I realized, Camping is himself a false teacher
and so I thought I would write this article to use on my speaking trip
since I will be talking about his second failed prediction then.
21, 2011 and the Harold Camping Cult "Prophecy" by Justin Edwards,
The world is not lacking in its number of cults who have attempted
to set dates for the return of Christ or the end of the world. Whether
drinking poisoned kool-aid to join the passing comet gods or merely predicting
dates for TEOTWAWKI (the-end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it), obviously these
have failed miserably - and for good, biblical reason. Despite the clear
truth of Scripture on these matters, false prophets such as Harold Camping
and his Family Radio cult continue to set dates for the end of all things.
It Negative And Unbiblical To Name False Teachers? by Brannon Howse,
This is a video about how many churches think it is too negative to

of a False Prophet by Sharon Lindbloom, 1/16/11
During an email exchange a Latter-day Saint wrote, "You have continually
said that the 'LDS' church is led by a false prophet. Do you even have
the slightest idea who the prophet is right now? His name is Gordon B.
Hinckley, and HE IS A PROPHET OF GOD. You can't even sit there and tell
me that he is leading anyone astray -- he is a man of integrity beyond
your comprehension." I have encountered this sort of assertion many times.
People seem to think that a false prophet would have horns and bad teeth;
that he would be easily recognizable as evil. They think that if someone
is attractive or calls people to do "good" things, he must represent the
one true God. But what does the Bible say?

Occult Oneness Prophets: The Evil Of William Branham & The Manifest
Sons Of God Copyright © 1997 Zenith Harris Merrill
"William Branham, the "father" of the Manifest Sons of God" theology,
and much of the Charismatic movement, which has inspired the Citi-Church,
Universal DAWN movement and C. Peter Wagner's Spiritual Mapping of today,
was empowered by Satan. C. Peter Wagner, in his book, Engaging the Enemy,
attributes much of his information on "Territorial Spirits" to practising
Witchdoctors and former Satanists, rather than God's Word. William Branham
was Baptist, until his wife died in childbirth, and he had "angelic" visitors
who told him it was because he needed to be teaching and preaching "Oneness,"
instead of the Trinity. He then joined a Oneness Pentecostal church and
taught nothing else for the rest of his life. He believed in what the early
Church Fathers called the error of Modalism, also known as Monarchianism
and Sabellianism: that Jesus is all there ever was of God - He says that
God "always had skin on him," but that Jesus sometimes functioned either
as the Father or as the Holy Spirit, instead of Himself. Branham taught
that God could only function as one at a time, much like an actor playing
one role and then another. Where did he ever get such an idea? Everything
he believed was from "his" angel of light."

YONGGI CHO’S THEOLOGY AND CHURCH GROWTH METHODOLOGY by Christian
Wei, The Burning Bush, Volume 2 Number 2, July 1996
One of the most dangerous and confused issues
in contemporary Christianity is on the nature of the Christian’s success
or prosperity. People in our success-oriented generation are always attracted
to successful methods or prosperous phenomena. If a particular method works,
a great multitude will follow and exalt it, regardless of its philosophy
or theological accuracy. It is very disheartening to know that many people
in modern Christianity have discarded God’s Word and Christian doctrine
in favour of these so-called "successful methods" in their pursuit for
more success in this world. One of their favourite arguments is based on
Gamaliel’s philosophy (Acts 5:33–40). Thus, they argue that one indication
that their activities are of God is the presence of large crowds. They
forget, however, that there are many false religions in this world with
innumerable adherents. Paul Yonggi Cho, a very influential person in the
Christian scene today, is a leading proponent of the above-mentioned concept.

people who see and hear the Rev. John C. Hagee are impressed. He is rotund,

who really knows what he is talking about. However, careful evaluation
of the teachings of Hagee, pastor at the San Antonio-based Cornerstone
Church, reveals false teaching and a defective view of a basic and essential
issue regarding salvation and the Gospel. Hagee preaches another way of
salvation for the Jew, which is in direct violation of Paul’s warnings
in Galatians 1:6-9."

(3) John Hagee's Word Games Regarding The

not trying to convert the Jewish people to the Christian faith... In fact,
trying to convert Jews is a 'waste of titne. . Jews already have a covenant
with God and that has never been replaced by Christianity." (Houston Chronicle,
April 30, 1988, sec, 6, pg. 1). But, Hagee knows that most Christians and
almost all dispensational believers do not accept this and are in fact
shocked by it. In response to a letter by PFO Director M. Kurt Goedelman,
Hagee essentially denied this. NOW HERE IS THE POINT REGARDING WORDS BEING
USED TO COVER AND DECIEVE. "Hagee claimed in a carefully nuanced letter,
dated June 18, that the Houston Chronicle had distorted what he said and
went on to further to assert: "I have not or never have been dual covenant
in my preaching”. In this he is being less than honest and playing word
games... Hagee's true view is a muddled form of the 'Two Covenant' or 'Dual
Covenant' theory, even though he would deny the label. It should be noted
that Hagee said in his reply only that he has not been dual covenant 'in
my preaching'." (PFO, G. Richard Fisher, the Other Gospel Of John Hagee.)

in his Christians United for Israel conferences held in most major cities,
he enforces a strict policy of not mentioning Jesus, forbidding attendees
to attempt to convert them. Hagee zealously trumpets the cause of political
Zionism, believing Jewish control of all Palestine will hasten the Rapture,
and puts this priority far ahead of bringing Christ to the Jewish people.

but we do cast them out. Because of the need of balance and insight
in this area I’d like to introduce you to a resource for approaching your
own teaching and training in the ministry of deliverance.” With supporting
headliners such as Hayford who can argue against its validity? However,
the question that needs to be asked is not if it is popular (or balanced),
but is it biblical?

So it is appropriate that I do respond! My
reason for opposing T.D. Jakes, Kenneth Copeland, and Jack Hayford are

three teachers. Their published statements speak for themselves. But there
are also a great number of biblical discernment ministries besides me that
have done extensive research on their teachings who are highly credible.

"I don't pretend to know Joshua's motivation; by all accounts he seems

I am sure Edgar Cayce, Jean Dixon and countless other prophets, who by
Christian, Biblical standards would have to be regarded as False, were
equally sincere and unassuming. There are countless warnings in scripture
about the emergence of False Prophets and teachers who like Pharaoh's magicians,
withstood and hindered the true gospel by means of signs, wonders and miracles.
Just because Joshua seems to be able to produce "results", doesn't make
him a man of God, nor should we go there. The end does not justify the
means. The very idea of having to go to Nigeria to receive a healing, or
a miracle, or a Word from God, is unscriptural."

"Endtimes! Unity! Celebration! Joy! Rebirth! Right Relationships!
Transformation! The greatest Move of God ever known to the Church! These
are the subjects I addressed in my three part series on the surge of Latter
Rain and Restorationist unity, harvest and revival currently hitting the
Church head on. As I researched the articles, which focused on the "birthing
of the corporate child" by the year 2000, I was shocked to see that the
various quotations I'd gathered from church leaders also formed a vivid
picture of these new moves in the Church. Months later, as I began to research
false christs for our Home Page on our Lord's second coming, I was again
taken aback as I discovered that the same Latter Rain/Restorationist agenda
was being proposed through the directives and messages of Lord Maitreya,
the "Master of All Masters" channeled by New Ager Benjamin Creme. Lord
Maitreya is a likely candidate to be the "Lord" of the endtime Apostasy,
and may very well manifest himself in some way during the global celebrations
scheduled for the year 2000."
Final Equinox 2000 ... Maitreya by Daniel Adam Millar, 1996
An interesting, if somewhat speculative theory on the end times. However,
there is a lot of fascinating information about Lord Maitreya, who the
author firmly believes is the False Prophet and the "second beast in
Maitreya: The Messiah In Disguise? by the Watchman Fellowship,
"According to Benjamin Creme, spokesman for the Maitreya and director
of the Tara Center, the Maitreya appeared in Nairobi, Kenya to a group
of about 6,000 worshipers. "On June 11, he appeared suddenly in the crowd
and spoke to them in their own language, Swahili, for a time. Benjamin
Creme confirmed that this appearance was truly Maitreya the Christ in one
of his many guises" (Network News, June/July 1988, p. 2)."
New Logo Symbol
This is purportatdly Maitreya's new logo. Here's the animated
version.You will notice that it can be seen as having 666 elements. The
basic six-pointed star is made up of two pyramids. On each six point are
six logos. The first seal is the I-Ching/yin-yang as the center for a lotus
flower with an embedded swastika. This is the same as the center seal.
The second seal is a star of David of Israel. The third seal is the cross
of Christianity, the fourth seal is the cresent moon of Islam with an I-Ching
in the middle of the star. The fifth seal is the nine-pointed star of Baha'i.
The sixth seal is allegedly the seal of the "Elects" which is basically
a star of David with a rising sun embedded with a swastika. You will notice
that he I-Ching symbol itself is made up of six elements. The lotus flower
petal represents the seventh level of "chakra" called the Soma/Sahasrara
Chakra where a person allegedly becomes one with the universe. "The
seventh trumpet is representative of the event when the Aquarian experiences
the Soma/Sahasrara Chakra activation." On the day
of declaration Maitreya will likely announce himself with the blast
of a "shofar", the Jewish "Jubilee" trumpet. At the blast of this "shofar",
all who have been initiated into Kundalini-type
experiences and manifestations, such as Hindu mystics, Tibetan monks,
channelers, mediums, witches, witch doctors, voodoo preists, satanists,
transcendental meditationists, "counterfeit" revivalists and many others
will have their highest "chakra", the Soma/Sahasrara Chakra, "activated"
and will hear Maitreya speaking to them in
unison in their minds. When they realize that people from many religions
are hearing the same thing, they will assume that the "anointing" is on
"all men" and that Christ has returned to earth. This will unify them together
as the world church under Maitreya, the False Prophet. This will likely
usher in the Tribulation. If you would like an explanation
of what the symbols in Maitreya's logo mean in the occult, go here.

Of Maitreya Will Be A "Pentecostal Experience For All" by Benjamin

-- will know, through the overshadowing of the minds of all humanity --
a Pentecostal experience for all -- that Maitreya is the Christ."

Claims To Be Decended From King David & Muhammad with comment
by Sandy Simpson, 4/4/06
This article was sent to me by a reader of the DITC web site.
These geneology claims were to be expected from promoters of Maitreya.
They are trying to sycretize all religions into one with Maitreya being
the expected coming Christ, etc. Check out the following links for
their claims about Maitreya. Maitreya is a good candidate for the
antichrist. Keep in mind while viewing this material that it is full
of lies. However, this proposed geneology does show that Maitreya
is from and Islamic country, which would be consistent with the view of
many biblical scholars that the antichrist will be from and Islamic country.

There was a very strange announcement made recently in the form

reason, because it reads like something from a supermarket tabloid. Come
to think of it, didn’t Rupert Murdoch just buy Dow Jones & Company

Life And Ministry Of Oral Roberts O Timothy Magazine, Volume 7,
Issue 3, 1990
"It is obvious that Roberts is a deceiver and a false prophet. His
prophecies have been proven wrong time and time again. Sadly, he has deceived
multitudes with his lying words and false promises, and has robbed God's
people of hundreds of millions of dollars. And in spite of all the evidence
which proves Roberts' hypocrisy, he is still regarded as a great Christian
leader in charismatic circles and is still promoted as a man of God."
Brewing At Oral Roberts by Justin Juozapavicius, Associated Press
Writer, Sat Oct 6, 6:38 AM ET
Twenty years ago, televangelist Oral Roberts said he was reading
a spy novel when God appeared to him and told him to raise $8 million for
Roberts' university, or else he would be "called home." Now, his son, Oral
Roberts University President Richard Roberts, says God is speaking again,
telling him to deny lurid allegations in a lawsuit that threatens to engulf
this 44-year-old Bible Belt college in scandal.

Oral Roberts is known in the church as someone many believe has

that would break the ground for such people as Oral Roberts.

Robertson and those at Regent University involved in this amalgamation

are not the only ones that have sold out the faith once delivered to the

pandemic throughout the church world.

Different Gospel - An Evaluation Of The Teachings Of Robert Schuller
by Rev. Gil Rugh
am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace
of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there
are some who are disturbing you, and want to distort the gospel of Christ"
(Galatians 1:6-7). Millions of people around the world are familiar with
the ministry of Dr. Robert Schuller. His television program and books have
made him one of the most recognized figures in Christianity today. Many
look to him as an expert on Christian doctrine and living, but are the
teachings of Dr. Schuller in line with what the Bible teaches? In his work,
A Different Gospel: An Evaluation of the Teachings of Robert Schuller,
Pastor Gil Rugh compares the teachings of Robert Schuller with the Bible
to discover if the gospel presented by Schuller is truly the gospel of
the Bible, or if it is "a different gospel." This

"All in all, with its doctrinal ambiguity, theological aberrations,
unscriptural emphasis on the sunpernatural experiences and prophetical
and mystical leanings, the End-Time Handmaidens is an attraction for the
spiritually naive and undiscerning. The foundation of the group is
far-removed from the bedrock of Christian orthodoxy. ETH is just
another "end time" delusion. It has a confusing message of salvation,
with people only committing to Gwen Shaw's control and her plethora of
false teachings and teachers." Sorry we cannot include this article

End-Time Handmaidens And Servants Cult - Founder: Gwen Shaw by
Mark Scheiderer, 7/00
"Former member of the End-Time Handmaidens & Servants Cult Mark
Scheiderer states: "The reasons I am writing this report on my experience
with Gwen Shaw and the cult she has founded - a.k.a. End-Time Handmaidens
& Servants - are five (six, seven & eight [added later]) fold:
(1) To let people know how others and myself were treated while working
at this cult's headquarters. (2) Because of my grief over the mental abuse
Mrs. Shaw inflicted upon certain people before their departure. (3) Because
I can no longer agree with or keep silent about Mrs. Shaw's writings, which
are New Age teachings..(4) Because of the pain and destruction that Mrs.
Shaw, her teachings, and members of this cult have caused in my parent's
marriage (now ended in divorce), the lives of my immediate and extended
families, my life and personal relationships with others both during and
after my association with this cult, and in the lives of countless others.
(5) So that as many people as possible, especially those within this cult
would know the truth about this cult." Gwen Shaw appeared on Benny
Hinn's "This Is Your Day" during the month of October, 2000. Hinn sold
and endorsed five of her books (with a sixth one free for $40) These books
are small paperbacks. Bill Bright, C. Peter Wagner, John Arnott and
others endorse Gwen Shaw.
(3) Web Of Deception - Gwen Shaw by
Donna M. Shuck, 2007
I have been going to see Gwen Shaw for many years on a weekend retreat
once a year at the Retreat Center in PA. I admired her missionary travels
all over the world and her authorship of many books, ministry to women
and emphasis on prayer and fasting. I admired her promotion of many other
authors’ books which she presented at every convention freely. However,
there were times that I didn’t agree with some of the statements she made
or some of the behaviors that were going on in these meetings and felt
uncomfortable with the power that seemed to permeate the very air with
a powerful drawing effect. Recently God has opened my eyes in a fresh way
and awakened me concerning this false supernatural spirit, the false doctrines
and the mishandling of scriptures in her teachings and I am eternally grateful
to Him; therefore, I’d like to present you with this enlightening account
of just some of the false teachings I have encountered regarding Gwen Shaw
as well as those whom she heartily endorses.
