Let’s take the time to discuss another key characteristic of Hellenism that – historically and presently – has deeply affected the faith for the worse. Not only does Hellenism fog concrete and absolute truth with abstraction, it also militantly promotes and enforces it by employing tactics such as infiltration, subversion and – if necessary – murder.
While Paul Cain was being passed off as a “fallen hero” to his followers between the years 2004-2019, an entirely different scenario was taking place behind the scenes. It wasn’t until after his death that the truth started to emerge.
Followers of the Word of Faith and Prophetic Movements use Psalm 105:15 as a trump card to cause those who question them to cower in fear of divine retribution. It’s time to silence this ridiculous threat.
False prophets and their followers love to convince those watching that the Holy Spirit is moving upon them by putting on an outward show of jerks, quakes, nonsensical phrases and other odd “spiritual manifestations.”
Sometimes, the show is an outright lie – they are completely faking it. At other times, an actual spirit is pulling the strings. And sometimes it’s a little of both. Trying to discern just what is going on can be pretty difficult.
This article will attempt to lend some clarity to this phenomenon.
Yeshua likened the fruit of a false prophet to thorns and thistles. Contrary to what you may think, this addresses a much deeper dynamic than what you see with the surface-level idolatry, sexual immorality and greed that you see in today’s charismatic circles.
The bible says that miracles, signs and wonders follow the believer, but are also part of the end time deception. How can we tell the difference?
Because of the Deuteronomy 13 test, those with opened eyes are trying to discern between “true” and “false” prophets by the signature words “Come and let us serve other gods,” only to be shut down because nobody who claims to be a prophet – not even the worst offender – would say something so heinous.
But is that really the criteria Deuteronomy 13 is telling us to use? Or is there more to the story? … Let’s do a deep dive into this important passage!
As the world falls headlong into the wide path of destruction, will you hear the call to grow narrow?
To those who feel compelled to follow, and fit within, the current (and failing) church paradigm …. consider. You are not called to make the best out of a bad situation. You are called to follow the King and prepare His Way. This is the very essence of the Spirit of Elijah …
The more insidious false prophets establish a false authority by claiming that they hear from the Creator. This false claim strengthens their credibility among their listeners . . . then the damage occurs.
The Old Testament prophets knew there would come a day when the likes of Bill Johnson, Kris Vallotton, Graham Cooke and Rick Joyner would come and deceive many! They likened these prophetic imposters to “little foxes” who destroy the fruit of the vine. If we compare these foxes to the false prophets of our day, we will see that absolutely nothing has changed! It’s the same game. Check out the final installation in the “Haven’t We Prophesied In Your Name?” series!
Have you ever sat and listened silently to a prophet or prophetess expound upon what seemed to be the latest of an endless series of dreams or visions? Were you tempted to question the veracity of their encounter(s), only to be silenced by echoes of “touch not God’s anointed” coursing through your mind? Believe me, I have. Let me tell you what God’s Word has to say about false prophets and their dreams and visions.
In it’s most basic form, soaking is the practice of finding a quiet place to spend time with God, emptying your mind of all distraction and attempting to get into contact with the Holy Spirit. For most, it rarely remains at this basic level.
People have done hours of research and written books about the differences between Old Testament and New Testament prophets. Well, I’m sorry to burst their bubble, but in their efforts to appear educated, they have contradicted the Word of our Unchangeable God.
Many Christians will be gathering together to pray against the spells of witches on behalf of President Trump, but are they in any shape to do so? Please consider this warning.
For many centuries, the church has adhered to the belief that there are “true” prophets and “false” prophets. Believe it or not, this is not entirely correct. If you want to gain a deeper understanding of how the Father views, works with and works through the prophets, grab your shovel and let’s dig a little deeper.
In this video, Juanita Bynum mercilessly rails against the sheep. Look, folks, if the spirit behind this woman doesn’t make you nauseous, the sheer insult to your intelligence and sense of humanity should get you fired up.
Ah, the beginning of the year! (OK, we’re a couple days into it.) Time for the prophets to tell you what to expect for the coming year! But wait a minute . . . didn’t I read this prophecy before?
People often ask me why I am so convinced that the modern day prophetic movement is a false and/or deceptive movement. Let me tell you . . .
Many of us are coming out of the haze and seeing false prophecy and false prophets in a different light. But do we really view false prophets the same way God does? This article will give you a better idea as to how God views those who may have good intentions, but are leading multitudes astray.
Thanks to charismatic publications like the Elijah List and Charisma magazine, “the Spirit of Python” seems to be all the rage in spiritual warfare circles. False prophets and deliverance ministers all have varying ideas as to how this spirit operates and the accompanying spiritual and physical side effects. But do they really know what they are talking about? Is the Spirit of Python really responsible for all they say that it is? What do we know about this elusive spirit serpent? What does the Bible say? What does history say? By the end of this series, you’ll know the truth.
Between the years 2001-2008, I was the webmaster for the Elijah List, one of the largest distributors of false prophecy for the prophetic movement. I witnessed first hand the deception that goes on behind the scenes in what was (arguably) the most popular prophetic email ministry of the time.

If you want to see the Jezebel-Ahab dynamic in play, don’t look at the church, look at the government. That’s where it starts.
I shouldn’t have been shocked at this video …. not in the slightest. Still, when I viewed Kenneth Copeland unabashedly playing into the hands of the “one world religion,” it left me with a sinking feeling in my stomach. Twenty-four hours later, I’m still a little dazed.
A careful look at the Word of God will reveal that the goals of Martin Luther’s gospel and that of the Kingdom of God are not at all the same. Perhaps it’s time to re-think our evangelism values and strategy.
What is the real reason behind the lack of revival in America? Is it only the prayerlessness and lack of consecration that are holding back heaven’s blessing? I think we’re overlooking something.
The influence of Python in the Greco-Roman world was greatly enhanced by the expansion of Hellenism (Greek philosophy, culture, values). This worldview stands diametrically opposed to the concrete truth of YHWH’s commands and greatly affects not only the way we see the world, but also our view of worship.

The “Jezebel spirit” cannot be found anywhere in the Bible. It is a charismatic concoction designed to sell books, suppress women and further an agenda. The mindset of Jezebel, however, is alive and well in the church culture, affecting men AND women alike. Unfortunately, due to rampant misinformation and scriptural ignorance, people remain continually unaware of the workings of Jezebel in their midst. This post will shed some light on the situation.
Almost immediately after the news of Kim Clement’s death hit Charisma magazine and Facebook, I started getting email from people, wanting to know my take on the situation.
Let us use our logic for a moment. If you base an entire “movement” on errant definitions of core terms, can you ever hope to walk in truth? Can you ever hope to walk in a true prophetic gifting?
The Oracle at Delphi was a major prophetic voice between 7th century BC and 4th century AD. It’s not mentioned at all in the bible, but it greatly affected the culture and worldview of those who lived during that era. What (or who) exactly was the Oracle at Delphi and how did it affect the Greco-Roman empire? How is it related to the Spirit of Python mentioned in Acts 16?
Azusa 2016 may have been an event organized by men, but it was orchestrated by the Spirit of Elijah. As the false prophets strove for a “unity” that involved a consolidation with the Mother Church, YHWH’s true prophets dropped to their knees and asked the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to reveal Himself. And He answered . . . with fire!
Right in the middle of the Festival of Sukkot, the “Awaken the Dawn 2017” gathering in Washington DC is going to fan a resurgence of the heart of Korah. Worship leaders, speakers and congregants alike will attempt to offer praise to the God of Moses, while hiding a heart that longs for Egypt and it’s idols. Watch this unfold!
Kim Clement just declared his allegiance to the papacy. I can’t say that this is very surprising as Christian religious leaders and figureheads are falling on their knees like dominoes to kiss the proverbial ring of the pope and fall in line with the prophesied one world religion.
Today, I read an article from Jennifer LeClaire on the Elijah List entitled “Radical Spiritual Warriors Prophesy Radical Prophetic Words!” and for once, I believe it served its purpose because I felt a deep stir in my spirit. I’ve never been bold enough to give a prophetic word, but this is something that I just cannot stay silent on . . . and I’m convinced that it will come to pass.
Azusa Now 2016 may have been a shot across the bow for the “mother church,” but it wasn’t even a flash in the pan for the Cause of the Kingdom.
Todd is one of the major players behind the up ‘n coming Awaken the Dawn conference and has been featured at the Azusa Now “revivals”, TBN, CBN, Charisma Magazine and (surprise, surprise) the Elijah List. But is he legit, or just another servant of the papacy?
Prophetic voices like Rick Joyner, Mike Bickle, the Elijah List and other Charismatic influences are scrambling to use the death of Paul Cain, one of the “fathers” of the prophetic movement and confessed homosexual, to further a deceptive mindset and worm their way into your walk with the Most High.
But you don’t have to be another victim. Your quest for the truth starts here.
From 2004-2019, we were led to believe a certain narrative about Paul Cain and his “struggles” with homosexuality and alcohol. Although this narrative is only half of the story, we can still learn valuable lessons about the modern-day prophet and why they would be willing to keep you in the dark for 15 years.
False prophets at the End of the Age are people who probably have the best intentions. They may genuinely believe that they are doing God’s will and have the signs and wonders to back up their claims! But when it’s all said and done, the miraculous signs and wonders are not God’s “Seal of Approval” on their lives and ministries.
If we combine all of the information from both the Word of God and our own dictionary, we can safely conclude that a presumptuous prophet is a person who boldly speaks a “word from God” that does not come to pass. This lack-of-fulfillment nullifies the validity of their claims of hearing from God accurately, and places them in the category of “the rebellious.” Unfortunately, what the Bible and our own common sense will tell us often takes a back seat to man-made reasoning and absurd rationalization.
Ever since I wrote my "Working for the Elijah List" testimony, people have asked me "Where are the Real Prophets?" Quite honestly, up until the last couple years, I didn’t have a clue! I just knew who they were NOT! Well, I’m happy to say that I’ve found them… they are alive and well and they are NOT on TBN!
Unfortunately, this tale of perversion and pretense is not confined to the late “prophet,” Paul Cain. There are many self-appointed “spokesmen for God” out there who are acting as enablers or participants in the most grievous types of sin. And our leaders open wide the door of the churches so that these wolves can feed off of you: body, soul and spirit.
False prophets and teachers at Charisma magazine and other mainstream christian publications are pulling out all the stops to ensure that the framework behind the propaganda they push stays in tact, even if it means resorting to manipulation and outright deceit. And they have YOU in their sights. Watch out, believers! The sheep clothes are coming off…
Because false prophets like Bill Johnson, Graham Cooke, Rick Joyner and Kris Vallotton seem to be spiritual and have a knowledge of the Word of God, seekers of truth have a very hard time seeing them as wolves. I frequently receive emails from people asking me what I think about these guys and others like them. This series is my answer to those questions.
How can we tell if a dream or vision is from God? Are there any scriptures in the Word that we can go to for verification? In this post, we will apply scriptural criteria to real life examples and test if the dreams and visions are really from God or are the result of “another spirit.”
Yeshua said that you will be able to discern between true and false prophets by looking at their fruit. Discerning good fruit in a prophet is simple when you understand the relationship of the grape and the fig to the nation of Israel.
Most false prophets are unwitting accomplices to a diabolical plan. As they continue to churn out support for a false image of the Messiah, they have no idea that they and their listeners are actually assisting Lucifer in his plan to deceive the world.
Knowing what I know about false prophets and prophecy, I cringe whenever I see memes from Kris Vallotton appear on my Facebook wall. Not because he’s a false prophet – that’s just a given – but because I know that people blindly read and absorb these messages with little more than a passing thought.
The late Kim Clement, who had had guest appearances on TBN and possessed a HUGE online (and offline) following, was the Elijah List’s “star performer” (with Todd Bentley being a close “runner-up”), so it is still in their best interest to promote him every chance they get. Count on it… wrong or right, if Kim came out with a “word from God,” the Elijah List will promote it. It’s just a given.
Rather than lead you into a deeper walk of obedience, a false prophet will lead you away from the Father’s commands, enticing you with “fresh revelation.”
Today’s wolves have no clue that they are wolves! They each look down at the wool clothes that cover their bodies and they think within themselves “I’m a sheep!” – but inwardly, they are full of covetousness and excess.
Azusa Now 2016 was an auspicious event that not only included an unholy covenant between Charismania and Catholicism, but also a hardening of the hearts of many lemmings who are convinced that their experience outweighs and outranks the Word of their Creator.
There are many different books out there addressing spiritual warfare, but not many Scriptures. Could we be focusing on an inferior enemy when we should be looking at ourselves?
There’s no question that Billy Graham left a legacy – but just what kind of “legacy” are we talking about? Sure, thousands – if not millions – may have walked the aisle and asked Jesus into their hearts in his crusades, but will it matter in the Kingdom?
The relationship between a false prophet and a sinful nation hasn’t changed in over 2,000 years. Sinful people instruct the prophet to speak what they want to hear and the spineless prophets eagerly oblige.
Considering all of the evidence of the Paul Cain cover-up, it is easy to see how lies and manipulation of the Word of God play a huge part in fooling the masses. But some of the blame lies in our inability to think for ourselves and look past our own unsustainable doctrine. This “gap” in our reasoning allows for the modern-day prophet to come in and build an empire at the expense of our willful ignorance.
Why does God allow miracles, signs and wonders to be performed by false prophets in the “Word of Faith” and “Prophetic” camps? Is it all an elaborate ruse, or is something else afoot?
After confessing to having knowledge of Paul Cain’s predatorial tendencies for the past 15 years, Rick Joyner attempts to salvage Paul’s reputation as a prophet, as well as his own reputation, by appealing to commonly taught misunderstandings of spiritual gifts and spiritual father figures.
David Barton recently appeared on the Jim Bakker show and talked about an elusive “revival” that was supposed to be occurring right under our noses. But is revival really happening or are we just looking for the wrong signs? After all these years, do we even know what “revival” means?
Taking on the nature of their father, the false prophets will arrogantly claim to be enlightened ministers of the Gospel. They want you to think that they are people who have tapped into the spiritual resources of the heavenly realm, but no matter how hard they try, authentic prophecy always seems elude them.
Some Christians, especially in the prophetic movement, will diligently search movies (even rated “R” movies) and music for some glimpse, some hint to a deeper, “Christian” message.
When one reads the Acts 16 account of the encounter between Paul and the girl possessed by a Python spirit (divination), many things get left unsaid and lost in translation. There is so much more to this scenario than meets the eye! Come with me and we’ll take a closer look at this situation.
Yeshua told us that false prophets would deceive many in the last days. Who are these “scripturally-certified” false prophets? This page will show you.
If I see a prophet with a large following, red flags go off in my head right away. Usually, when a prophet is surrounded by many people, it is because the people like what they hear.
At a time when this nation should be on their knees repenting, Rick Joyner and Lance Wallnau fulfill their roles as false prophets, distracting you with lies and frivolous claims.
A few days ago, Charisma Magazine released an article by Cindy Jacobs entitled “How to Prophetically Lay Siege to a City.” In this article, Mrs. Jacobs shares what she feels is God’s strategy for defeating satan’s influence in our cities so that the long-awaited revival can finally arrive. Unfortunately, in her zeal for “storming the gates of hell”, she overlooks (and as a result, disobeys) one of the most important commands of the Bible.
