Bob Jones passed away this morning. This post isn't going to discuss whether or not Bob Jones was a true or false prophet, nor is it going to discuss the validity of his ministry and/or whether or not he is in the Kingdom. Over the next few weeks, you will probably see many other posts, articles and Facebook threads discussing and debating those details. Instead, I just … [Continue Reading]
About a week ago, I posted a rather lengthy commentary on Kenneth Copeland and his shameless self-subordination to the catholic "mother" church. Click here to read: Kenneth Copeland Caves to the Harlot Church Still, I felt like there was more that needed to be shared, both from scripture and personal experience, but my family and my "regular job" needed me … [Continue Reading]
The Body of Christ is looking for the next great "Move of God." Pardon me if this sounds crass ... I have a "movement" every day .... but it requires the proper nutrients to be fed into my body in order for that "movement" to happen! Perhaps we should re-assess why there are no real, lasting "Movements" in the Body of Christ these days. Could it be that we are not … [Continue Reading]
OK, I'm probably going to offend some people with this one. Christians who put these goody-goody graphics on Facebook about God and God's Love exasperate me. It's not that I don't believe in His Love, I truly do ... and I need it just as much as the next guy/gal. But I find that these same people (both on FB and in "real life") who dwell on His Grace and His Goodness, … [Continue Reading]
False prophets can be easily detected People often ask me why I am so convinced that the modern day "prophetic movement" is a false and/or deceptive movement. My answer is that there is an overwhelming amount of scripture to support this viewpoint. If I were to willfully ignore the abundance of scriptural evidence supplied in God's Word (as many so often do), then I … [Continue Reading]
Many of you may not know, but I “cut my teeth” on listening to Kenneth Copeland and the other “Word of Faith” preachers. Wrong or right, they were the preachers and teachers who caused me to have a ravenous hunger for the Word of God. Ironically, it was that “ravenous hunger” FOR the Word of God that led me to spend a lot of time IN the Word of God, where I quickly found out that Kenneth Copeland and his ilk were absolute charlatans.

Still, I felt like there was more that needed to be shared, both from scripture and personal experience, but my family and my “regular job” needed me first.
Fortunately, I found this new video series by Forerunner777, a YouTube “personality” who has some AWESOME insights from scripture regarding End Time prophecy and the events that we see unfolding before our very eyes. [Read More]
Bethel Church Believes New Age Doctrine There is quite a buzz on Facebook about a recent video clip from Eric Johnson, speaking at Bethel Church (ministry of false prophet Bill Johnson), where he preaches about embracing a doctrine straight out of the New Age handbook. ** Hat tip to William Fawcett of BeyondGrace.blogspot.com and the Bethel Church and Christianity Facebook … [Read More...]
Soaking vs. Quiet Time Before I get into this too deep, let me state that I am an avid believer in spending quiet time with God. We live in a world full of chaos and distraction. Anxiety and "eye candy" continually compete for our attention and we constantly have to re-focus our attention on heaven. Without this precious time with the Master, we're prone to wander aimlessly, and listen to every … [Read More...]
New Testament Prophets and Prophecy The Deception that I see in the church fills me with a righteous anger and sorrow. I'm not really angry at the people who are doing the deceiving ... while there are a few who are conscious of their deception, most of them honestly feel that they are serving God by actively participating in a spirit of divination and witchcraft. After all, a wolf only DOES … [Read More...]
I John 3:1 AMP "SEE WHAT [an incredible] quality of love the Father has given (shown, bestowed on) us, that we should [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! The reason that the world does not know (recognize, acknowledge) us is that it does not know (recognize, acknowledge) Him." The Great Adoption God's Love is so special that He calls us out from … [Read More...]
