I recently posted links to some articles that give additional witness to the concerns I have expressed on the current wave of deception facing the Body of Christ. I truly hope you took time to consider the articles ‘The Two Camps’ and ‘Performance Based Prophecy’ by Jerimiah Johnson, and ‘The New Apostolic Reformation: What Is It?’ by MattS. from aminutetomidnite.com. I feel both these brothers are bringing forth understanding critical to the Church today. Both have done further work that builds upon that understanding, and I would like to share those links with you also.
It is vital to comprehend that the errors of the New Apostolic Reformation, Dominionism, and the Seven Mountains Mandate are all tentacles of the same root of deception being imposed upon us in this age. And this wayward ministry is being promoted by an alarming number of the big name ministries enjoying current popularity! It is like a tsunami of deception washing over the Western Church, and spreading from there throughout the world. This false move of God needs to be discerned, avoided, and spoken against by those with a love for the Truth and a desire to walk in the faith once delivered to the Saints. Here is two articles by MattS that discuss this matter in a deeper fashion.
Dominionism: What Is It? by MattS
The False Prophets
I cannot overstate the importance of grasping the fact that there is both a true prophetic voice as well as a false speaking to the Body of Christ in this generation. Yes. God does still speak to his people with a current prophetic word! He did not loose his voice, nor become disinterested in communicating with his children. But the Holy Spirit is not the only spirit speaking forth words of prophecy to us today. The enemy of our souls has control of the mouths of a great many (actually most in my opinion) who believe they are speaking divine mandate but are sadly not!
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Matthew 24:4-5
One of the most remarkable (at least to me) end-time prophecies Jesus gave tells us that the Christian Church would be subject in the last days to much deception broadcast not by those outside the Church, but by those coming in the name of Jesus and declaring him to be the Christ! We need to by all means ‘Get That Right’! The deceivers are no longer outside the gates trying to breach the walls and over-run the city. The walls have crumbled from neglect, the watchmen have deserted their posts, and the enemy walks the streets for the most part unhindered.
Contrary to the theology of many deceived persons a believer can be seduced away from the truth and fall from grace. You can lose your soul for following words of deceit instead of clinging to the words of life that proceed forth from our Redeemer! This biblical reality drives me to speak with great concern for those giving place to the ear-tickling and pacifying words we hear coming forth from every corner today.
Here is a very strong warning of the consequences of following deceptive teaching given to brother Jeremiah Johnson in the form of a prophetic dream. I hope you would read it and take it to heart. (Thanks once again to Meranda Devan for posting this to her site Why God?)
May the Lord bless you and keep you from the great deception that is sifting the Wheat in preparation for the Return of our Christ.
