A Deepening Deception

Time is an interesting concept, it keeps moving forward. We can remember things that have taken place in the past and experience the present, but we cannot change the direction of time. I’m not philosophizing or being intentionally melancholy but want to make the point that: We are quickly moving toward a time that is spoken of in the Bible. I (and others) have watched, documented, wrote and spoke on the state of the church for over 20 years. We see that we are at a point in both the world and the church where a deeper level of deception is occurring. I know this word is repulsive to some, just as the word sin is to the world but I’m only being candid on what I see.

What happens when all that can go wrong, goes wrong, what do we do? Can we do anything to prepare for this time? Being grounded in the word is of utmost importance or you wont make it. If all you read are books and not the Bible, time to change that. We must strengthen our relationship with the Lord and those believers who see the time we are living in. It is for our spiritual survival. Most people will admit that things in the world are unraveling, even atheists have eyes to see this. But far too many believers do not see the evil, the lies and the deception that is increasing in the world and inside the church itself. America, the church, its all at stake and we are not going to get any do-over's. Decisions we make now will change the direction for generations unless Jesus comes back and intervenes. That’s what I’m looking for!

I have often used the example of an avalanche going downhill, the longer it continues the more mass it collects and the more momentum it has. When it finally hits… well, you get the picture. Depending on how far it reaches, it can bury everybody and everything it touches.

No one likes hearing that they have been deceived, but they are thankful after they listen to one who challenges them and proves they have been removed from the narrow road Jesus told us to stay on.

What I say Goes

The word faith movement's errors has established themselves inside the church where you now have churches teaching doctrines of health and wealth they themselves don’t believe in. TBN, (& Daystar) the main promoter of these teachings hasn’t changed yet we see more and more good teachers associate with them. This only validates them and diminishes the reputation of the one that goes on a network that has an overwhelming majority of false teaching.

Many of these men who teach word faith believe they are gods (little g). The Mormons believe they will become gods after obedience to the laws of their church that will bring this progression. But these Word Faith teachers speak of themselves as gods NOW.  

 The influence of distorted teaching from word faith teachers is not idle, it is expanding. We have posted a new article on Jesse Duplantis’ teaching on Gen.2 where we learn that God only made the shell of the animals, he dragged their carcasses before Adam and Adam spoke, then they became alive. Thus Adam becomes the creator. This wonderful teaching of Duplantis came from Creflo, and he apparently received it from his mentor Copeland. This is a chain of events that affects so many people. Of course this idea justifies the power of the tongue and the power we have as “speaking spirits’ who are just like God.

When you listen day after day to teachers like these men you are trained by their voice and cannot hear the shepherds voice nor what others say to you that's biblical truth. No matter how much sense they contribute, especially if they are bringing correction to your teacher it is not heard. The lack of concern regarding false teaching affecting people worldwide is often because of ones love growing cold. We often hear:  ”Well, a lot of what he says is in the Bible.”  But what about all that is not in the Bible, that’s the part that can be destructive, deadly.  A liar does not lie every time he opens his mouth.  A thief does not steal all day long. A false teacher does not only speak falsehood.

The Kingdom is forming

Peter Wagner recently reacted to an article writing on his New Apostolic movements involvement with presidential hopefuls. In an update he specifically mentioned the writer the website and him calling them a cult.

From the 90’s its popularity has increased where it’s become a plight on the church. There are numerous statements of how they convince the churches by sending their prophetic advertisers out persuading  them to join with them in this new endeavor ‘The apostles bring spiritual government to the pastors of the city so that the pastors of the city can do the job that God has given them in a much more effective way…. “The only way this can possibly play itself out would be by the other people in the city recognizing that the apostle will add value to their own ministry. If this does not happen, change will not occur” explains Wagner. (Arise Magazine Article: New Apostolic Reformation, Posted September 1, 2000). Sounds so reasonable.But it is not.

Wagner submitted in his letter that The NAR is not an organization; It has no leader; I was neither the founder. So I wrote a reminder with his own quotes showing that he indeed said these very things. 

Many in this movement are also into word faith teaching, along with Gnostic and mystical views.  They promote of themselves as world church leaders (both apostolic and prophetic) that will change our world and bring the kingdom on earth NOW.

John Eckhardt at the time was coordinator of the apostolic ministries in Wagner Leadership Institute… “we had teams that prophesied to several thousand leaders, gave them personal prophesies with tapes. (Mobilizing The Prophetic Office John Eckhardt, 5/12/00, Session 12). These men are influencing churches throughout the world to have their apostles and prophets lead them to establish the government of God on earth. Seems like a bad repeat of history, this time far more extensive.

Many in America understand the separation of powers in government. The larger the government the less freedom people have; it is often the same for a church. The larger church will most often pick and choose who will do ministry, they often exercise more control. In a smaller church they look for people to be involved to do ministry and are open to the Lord moving people to minister on their own. 

.It is the larger churches that are more often the targets of the advertisers of the new apostolic movement of Wagner. An oversized government exercises more control from the top down; it is the same in the church.  A few men control numerous churches by running them on programs. They are not grounded in the bible just as the country is not grounded in the constitution. God is giving us an example we can all see and are affected by daily to understand what is also taking place inside the church. If a so called “leader” is not serving the people, he is not helping to reconcile rifts or prevent people from becoming wayward sheep then he is not serving the Lord

We have written a 4 part article on Bill Hamon’s aggressive Latter Rain teaching and his manifest sons of God belief. Everyone should read this to understand what is at stake. Whatever one wants to call this movement, it is flat out wrong and dangerous. People are leaving churches because of these prophets, churches are being divided by those who introduce a non biblical view of spirit warfare. The false prophets words are shouted to the people through the Christian media (books, Internet, TV, radio) but the truth is spoken quietly and heard by only the few. It has always been this way through history. God looks for those who will adhere to his word to challenge those who introduce a new path to follow (Titus 1:9). The message for the early Ephesus church may be ours today, Rev.2:2-7 the Church of Ephesus continued to do work for the Lord but had men claiming to be apostles that took control and ruled over the church (Nicolaitens). The people tested them but they did not have the fortitude to act for they had left their zeal and loyalty they first had.

We should not be those who run from the battlefield but are actively engaged with those who come into the churches walls and adversely affect the family (2 Tim. 2:2-4; Phil. 2:25; Phm.1:2). This is showing love, not just speaking on it.

In our modern day it was Robert Schuller that first wanted to eliminate sin in our modern church pulpits. False teachers avoid topics of sin, hell and judgment,they avoid taking care of conflicts to being resolution. All this relates to the gospel. In its place are taught topics on blessings, what this has done is teach Christians to avoid trials (that are made to strengthen our faith) and have them become weaker and more dependent on circumstances than God.

1 Peter 2:21: “Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.”  Here we are told that Jesus suffered, and He is our example for us all. We follow in His steps, not wanting to suffer, but when it comes be willing to accept and bear it. Philippians 3:10, which refers to “the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings?” Suffering is an integral part of life for both the unbeliever and the believer. For the believer it is often used by God in the development and maturing of our faith. In the first few centuries many were persecuted, tortured and killed for their faith. Today people are taught by word faith teachers to avoid any type of suffering even if its directly about their faith. Seems people are more concerned that their favorite pets will be in heaven; how about people?

The NAR wants authority; the emergent church wants freedom to experiment; the word faith movement wants whatever they desire by faith, wherever self is exalted God is diminished. The leaven of heresy is spread by those who carry the disease of “distortion.” And they are duty bound, its going all over the world.

When those who care for people, who speak up to prevent destruction, they are the ones who are named as divisive and hateful. We live in times where pride is exhibited over humility, it is seen by immediate reaction against what is true. The only alternative they have is to assassinate with ad hominem attacks and refuse to deal with the facts. I have had my share lately from some very unlikely people. If the church is going to survive with any integrity we must keep on knowing the issues and deal with them so we can be strengthened against what is coming.

What would the church be rated today on defending the truth if we applied the same criteria that rated America, unfortunately, It would probably be downgraded.

A Mormon for Israel

Glenn Beck had guest “American history expert” David Barton, with a pastor and Jewish and Israeli guests - Glenn: My Christian faith [Mormon] is an outcast among other Christians. When are we going to get to the place where we judge by the fruits, regardless of our beliefs - whether you are Jewish, Christian, etc., what are your fruits? Others seemed to agree. (5/20/11).

 I think we are already there. Fruit is about the Spirit’s work, not someone’s good deed. Even an atheist can do something good. As we lay down doctrine to unite we have already lost. Dialogues differ from debates - dialogues try to understand people rather than divide over the differences in teaching, there intent is to unite on a purpose. This is what interfaith is all about and Beck seems to be espousing it couched in his constitutional promotions.

Beck at his meeting in Israel (8/21/11) stated, “No matter what our governments may say, we are not our government, we stand with you,” (he received a standing ovation). We can appreciate those who stand with the Jewish people and alongside Israel, even if their government disagrees.  Israel and the Jewish people can use all the help they can get (not just in Israel but everywhere). God does expect Gentiles, (believers or non believers) to do what is right, to respect and uphold Gen.12. But in the end it is God who will stand for Israel when no man will.

At this event In Israel many Christian leaders gave testimony. Mike Evans (who attended and participated in the meeting in the mid 90’s that has become infamous where Rodney Browne and Copeland spoke to each other in tongues and laughed it up) gave a testimony he had not spoken elsewhere, in a distraught state Jesus appeared to him, the room turned white and he saw his eyes, but he did not have brown or blue eyes, but rainbow eyes. I’m not one to find fault in someone’s testimony but a story like this should never be spoken publicly, it embarrasses everyone. 

After the coverage, John Hagee was interviewed outside the event in Caesarea by Matt Crouch Jr. who mentions the gospel went out from this place. He asks Hagee to give somebody the opportunity to accept him. Hagee explains that Paul’s message was written so we can speak to the Lord, to pray and he can hear us. He then says “It is said when this prayer is spoken God will implant this blessing in your life”, he asks for believers and unbelievers to stretch their hands toward the TV screen and says “I believe God is going  to touch your life forever” and then recites Numbers 6:24 (which is a blessing for Israel, not unbelievers). Matt then comments, someone was accepting the Lord.

Accepting him as what and what for? The gospel that can save was not spoken at all. Is this what we have come to? Speaking on a scripture is enough to save. The reason I bring this up is to show the state of the church. Where is the truth, the word proclaimed, the testimony of the Holy Spirit to convict of sin and have one recognize Jesus as the savior?

South African Man Wakes in Morgue Fridge After Mistakenly Presumed For Dead July 25, 2011

“A South African man awoke to find himself in a morgue fridge — nearly a day after his family thought he had died, a health official said Monday.21 hours after his family called in an undertaker who sent him to the morgue after an asthma attack.

When I first heard this I was thankful there was no televangelist was present otherwise we would probably be hearing how he raised the dead man .

ABC News explains the seriousness of the situation: The government has gone public with this case to warn people that only trained health officials should declare people dead.

‘This is why we’re saying as a health department that people should call health services to have their relatives declared and certified dead and not these private mortuaries,’ he said. ‘Those guys are aren’t trained paramedics. They’re about business.’” If I remember correctly this is what took place a number of years ago when Bonkke, an evangelist to Africa who went on Benny Hinn’s program advertising a man was raised as he was praying at a church. This was a biiig miracle, and one of those unforgettable stories where the man, a Christian, found himself in hell with a welcome sign over the gate. Who says the devil doesn’t have a sense of humor.

TV advertising Church

A video is presented on TV of a child preaching up a storm, what some may call a revival, others may see it as indicative of the bankruptcy of the church. Frankly this is embarrassing, clearly it was taught and mimicked

Emergentitis hits the Netherlands

The BBC reports, some church leaders in the Netherlands want to transform their small nation into a laboratory for rethinking Christianity — “experimenting with radical new ways of understanding the faith.”“Mr. Hendrikse describes the Bible’s account of Jesus' life as a mythological story about a man who may never have existed.. doesn’t believe in life after death… nor in God. “God is not a being at all,” he says, but just an experience.

Removing Christ’s name from organizations and history

Bill Bright signed Evangelicals and Catholics Together, today his mission organization Campus crusade for Christ will drop 'Christ' from their title for their new evangelism strategy and officially change the name of its U.S. Operations to “Cru” in early 2012.

“We felt like our name was getting in the way of accomplishing our mission,” said Steve Sellers, the vice president for Campus Crusade, noting that the ministry will still be committed to “proclaiming Christ around the world.” The organization has 25,000 staff members in 191 countries. Vonette Bright offered support for the name change in a video posted online.

Sellers said “researchers found that 9 percent of Christians and 20 percent of non-Christians were alienated by the name Campus Crusade for Christ,.” In other words the world is repulsed by Christ as it is being shaped to be interfaith. Imagine Paul writing "I have given orders to the churches" of Galatia, Rome, Corinth, (Rom.16:16) to lay aside your title or name among the heathens and pagans.


Sellers said several factors were involved in the name change – including overseas sensitivities. Mentioning the word crusade. “It’s reverted back to some of its meaning related to the Middle Ages – forcing Christianity on different parts of the world,” he said.  source:


I can see crusade being an obstacle in Muslim lands, however, nearly everyone is offended by the name Christ. But it is different when one has an established name for this long and then eliminates it because of the world’s rejection.

On another note: Birth of Jesus to be removed as reference point for dates in school history books

Australia is to remove the birth of Jesus as a reference point for dates in school history books. Under the new politically correct curriculum, the terms BC (Before Christ) and AD (Anno Domini) will be replaced with BCE (Before Common Era) and CE (Common Era).

Mother earth is jealous for attention- that’s why we have the hurricanes and floods, so says her protectors. Does the earth have civil rights? According to the Gore, and others that consider the earth living (Gaia) and sacred; the answer is yes. You just have to be in tune with her and there are those who will teach you how. While they are busy saving the trees, the atmosphere and near microscopic creatures, 400 million abortions have occurred in China. Babies are found alive in dumps. How long will they be a growing economy when they make products and eliminate people? Where are the protests for human life?

The moral compass spinning in America

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a controversial bill where Public schools in California will be required to teach students about the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans to add the topic to the social sciences curriculum.

Textbooks now must include information on the role of LGBT Americans, as well as Americans with disabilities, though California's budget crisis has delayed the purchasing of new books until at least 2015.

Just the facts on religion

You can say just about anything and get away with it, as long as it is against Christianity. Its cool to be a hood, a hacker, to mock Jesus, even inside the church.  Atheists unite - Now we have freedom from that wants exactly what it name says. Michael Newdow, an attorney whose appeal to omit the phrase “under god” from the Pledge of Allegiance failed but they are not stopping their proselytizing. Newdow, an atheist, is the founder of the First Atheist Church of True Science (F.A.C.T.S) and is also an ordained minister” of the Universal Life Church; he admittedly believes “atheism is a religion!”

We have a choice to believe or not, in America its called freedom “of” religion not “from” religion. He needs to get his facts right.

However,… [This is a political humor break]

If the America could elect a savior it would be Obama (some think we did), but they have no choice; Jesus is the real savior, whom most despise. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) recently said that President Barack Obama has shown a “level of patience” in debt limit negotiations with congressional leaders that compares to the biblical figure Job, known as the “Man of Patience.” Someone commented, beside the actual Job being righteous, the most righteous man on earth, it becomes Ironic that she has compared one who is the very opposite, the man who cannot produce a job. I guess if one can't be a savior then next best thing is being a saint.

Money talks

 The world’s economies are trapped at the “stall speed” of low growth said the headline. You can confiscate every dollar earned by people who make $10 million a year or more and you run the country for barely over two weeks. Confiscate all the money of every millionaire and it still falls short. If all “the rich” peoples money in America were taken it still would not pay off the debt. Why? We borrow 188 million every hour.

The total of the governments deficit last year was about $2 Trillion dollars. $2 TRILLION is equal to distributing to 100 million families $20,000 a year. That’s a stimulus project. However our debt is not 14 Trillion but really over 100 Trillion with medicare, social sec, federal welfare projects etc.and the basic line goes up 7-8 percent each year. So no matter what one thinks what was accomplished this last go around it was like throwing a bb at a brick wall.  For more info:

Americas changing policies--White House Cleanses Israel from Website

The Weekly Standard’s deputy online editor, Daniel Halper, discovered that the White House had cleansed Israel as having any reference to Jerusalem. This, in fact, mirrors the way he is strong-arming the tiny Jewish state into ethnically cleansing Jerusalem of its Jews.

White House Cleanses Israel from Website Daniel Halper, Weekly Standard blog

At 3:22 p.m., I posted this photo of Vice President Joe Biden and Shimon Peres, with an accompanying caption that indicated it had been taken last year in Jerusalem, Israel:

They run a test to see if anyone notices or complains, then they proceed with a permanent policy. Subtle changes are always the best way to move people away from what they once believed, its called diaprax. And its being used everywhere these days.

World Report: Iranian General Calls for Wiping Israel ‘Off the Map’

Basij Brigadier General Mohammad-Reza Naghdi wants Israel destroyed. According to Kahlili, Naghdi has claimed that protecting Iran’s security is dependent upon wiping the “Zionist region” “off the map.” In response to Rezaiinejad’s death who was gunned down outside of his Tehran home this past weekend. Naghdi allegedly said:

“The main plot for this criminal act was conceived by the American government, and since it is scared of the reaction by the Muslim world due to the uprisings in the region, it had the Zionist regime commit the heinous act…we have no option but to have the Zionist regime wiped off the map.”

300 million Arabs are in bondage with only  ½ percent free living under a democracy (In Israel). They teach their children to hate and kill. What if we were taught that the greatest virtue was to strap a bomb to yourself and find others you don’t know or like and blow them and yourself to pieces. All done for God, who hates these people. What God would this be? Can we call this a religion that uses this as a stairway to heaven.

Muslim Hadith Book 019, Number 4366: “It has been narrated by 'Umar b. al-Khattib that he heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say: I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim.”

Islam is growing stronger in the middle east and the churches are vanishing in these countries.

There is a  culture whose anti-Semitism runs deep in its history and continues to affectthe way its people live today.

According to a survey conduced by pollster Stanley Greenberg, 73 percent of Palestinians in West Bank and Gaza say they believe Jews should be killed “wherever they hide” — be it behind stones, or trees — per their Islamic Hadith.

80 percent of Palestinians also agree with yet another passage from the Hadith also contained in the Hamas Charter about the need to enlist Arab and Islamic battalions to stamp out the Jews.the Hadith is a collection of narrations ascribed to Muhammad, concerning the prophet’s sayings and practices. The Hadith, to believers, is considered to be authoritative and “perfect” it is the basis of Sharia law. Along with the Quran, the Hadith is also guidance for religious Muslims.  It comes as no surprise then that 61 percent of Palestinians refuse to accept any possible two-state solution with the Israelis and that an overwhelming majority of Palestinians believe Jerusalem belongs to them and them alone. According to the poll, when presented with a question about the fate of Jerusalem, 92 percent of Palestinians believe Judaism’s holiest site should be the capital of Palestine. Only 1 percent said it should be the capital of Israel, with the remaining 7 percent saying it should be a shared, or “neutral” city. Apparently 72 percent of Palestinians endorse their current practice of denying millennia worth of Jewish history in Jerusalem, 62 percent support kidnapping and taking IDF soldiers hostage, and 53 percent are in favor of anti-Semitic school curriculum, including songs, for children.

Made in China has taken on a new meaning. “Iran says cheap “Made in China” Qurans full of typos,” are being produced. Iranian publishers are being scolded for outsourcing production of their holy book to Chinese printers. Apparently, their copies of the Quran are riddled with typos, according to the Tehran Times.

“These tableaus are made quite cheaply in China but are sold for much more than they are really worth to make that much more profit,” said an official with the organization who monitors and evaluates Qurans available in Iran. The official even urged importers to halt future Quran shipments from China, the Times reported.... Patrick Winn for Global Post:

 Some may want to see this halt in production as a worldwide policy until there is equal opportunity in Islamic countries for other religious literature distributed.

Egypt’s turn toward ancient Islam

“Senior Official in Egyptian Islamic Jihad: If We Come to Power, We will Launch a Campaign of Islamic Conquests to Instate Shari'a Worldwide: 'The Christian is Free to Worship His God in His Church, but if the Christians Make Problems for the Muslims, I Will Exterminate Them,'“ from MEMRI, August 29 (thanks to Pamela Geller):

Sheikh 'Adel Shehato--The Term “Democracy” is Not in the Arab or Islamic Lexicon; Once Allah's Law Reigns Supreme, the People's Role will End/

Q: “Do you support the uprising?”

Shehato: “...The [Egyptian] youth rose up for a certain ideal... They did not rise up in order to put the shari'a into practice, nor did they [complain] that Mubarak's regime did not rule in accordance with the shari'a... As Muslims, we must believe that the Koran is our constitution, and that it is [therefore] impossible for us to institute a Western democratic regime. I oppose democracy because it is not the faith of the Muslims, but the faith of the Jews and Christians. Simply put, democracy means the rule of the people itself over itself... According to Islam, it is forbidden for people to rule and to legislate laws, as Allah alone is ruler. Allah did not hand down the term [democracy] as a form of rule, and it is completely absent from the Arab and Islamic lexicon...”

US is now selling tanks to Egypt, which means we are siding with the Egyptian Brotherhood that is against Israel. Our support is growing for the Islamic awakening in the middle east. The world’s eyes are on Israel and they watch every thing they do and when there is a mistake made it is made known to all. But they ignore what wrong Islam is doing to all those who are not Muslim.

A Nation according Sharia?

Indonesia: Mayor decides churches can't be built on streets with “Islamic” names “Any Somali that is suspected of being a Christian, or a friend of a Christian, does not receive any food aid”

Hacking by the grace of Allah: Muslim woman studying in U.S. boasts of destroying 23 websites that “denigrated the Prophet Muhammad Isn't hacking into and destroying websites illegal?  Are Muslims allowed to wage a jihad against whatever they perceive as critical of Islam?  

What’s it like to live by Sharia law? Indonesia has an example, a Fatwa was issued against a movie.

“Muslim extremists against movie that promotes tolerance and dialogue,” by Mathias Hariyadi for Asia News, August 29: Jakarta (AsiaNews) – The Islamic Defender Front (FPI), an extremist Muslim organisation, is promoting a protest campaign against SCTV, a Jakarta-based private TV station, for scheduling “?”, a movie deemed offensive to Muslims. The Indonesian Ulema Movement (MUI), issued a fatwa ordering Muslims not to see it because of its misleading content and its suggestion that there is another ‘God’ beside the one recognised and worshipped within Islam.

I can respect those who take a stand up for what they believe is an intrusion on their religion, even if I don’t agree. Unfortunately these are not just statements to guide people but often turn into violence.

Remembering the attack on America

On the 10th anniversary of 9/11 we are still not being told the Truth according to Shahin of the Tucson Islamic Center. He says more than 1,200 Muslims died in the World Trade Center attack. (wow that’s incredible)

The real estimates are approximately 23 Muslims were killed in the 9/11 attacks, about 3/4 of one percent of the total victims. The Pew Muslim American study estimated that Muslims constituted 0.6 percent of the American adult population. So the percentage of 9/11 victims who were Muslims is very similar to the percentage of Americans who are Muslims. And Omar Shahin was off by a factor of 50.

Out of the 2998 people that died, 27 of them were Muslim. According to the BBC:  among those killed in the Twin Towers were an estimated 70 Muslims. This does not include the 19 hijackers.
Muslims represented 1.11% of all those who died at the World Trade Center (2605 died at WTC) It is safe to say that American Muslims represent 1% of the total U.S. population. Read more:

 Let us remember those who lost their lives in this tragic attackn and pray it never happens again.

Muslims claim they are increasing targets of hate crime in America. They continually portray themselves as victims no matter what the circumstances are. Lets be accurate… According to the FBI, of the 1,732 victims of religious hate crimes in 2008 in America, 66.1 percent were targeted because of anti-Jewish bias and 7.5% were targeted because of anti-Islamic bias. Reported on creepingsharia website (not for the fainthearted).

After reading this you might want to press the restart button, but would we repeat the same mistakes and end up in the same place? There is a reason our world is like this, the escalation of sin and the refusal to recognize God intervening with the truth- Jesus Christ.

As believers we have a hope the world can never give, The nations are in distress, we have the answer.

1 Cor.15:57-58: “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.’

May you know the Lord and His grace, and lean on him through all that takes place.

In Christ's service, Mike O

what is taking place in the middle east? We have a new video.

The Last Days, Islam & Israel - Conflict of the Ages

This video contains numerous video clips accompanied with a power point presentation that looks at changes in the weather, events that are shaping politics and religion. The increase of earthquakes, worldwide disasters, conflicts, signs from heaven. The apostasy in the church on man being as god (with video and audio clips).

The church and America’s reverse policy on Israel. Chrislam, the blending of the two religions in conflict for an unholy unity.

These issues are covered as it moves into the main topic where we concentrate on the middle east and the prize-Jerusalem. What is the Arab Spring really about? As we see the nations leaders being removed what is about to take place.

 Islam's goal for a new Caliphate. The Muslim brotherhood, Iran's video release of The Coming is Near on the Mahdi. Israel's defense for the land. The elimination of Christians by Islam throughout the Muslim countries

*NEW DVD - the Battle against the Queen of Heaven on Mt. Everest

See for yourself how the NAR, New Apostolic Reformation conduct their spirit warfare? In this one of kind video you will see firsthand the event that they claimed changed the world. Ana Mendez claims that her spiritual warfare on Everest was “one of the most important exploits the Holy Spirit sent the church to do.”
Certain new Apostles and prophets are generals in a spirit warfare army. They claim to have new revelation and the keys on how to defeat Satan’s kingdom and bring God's kingdom on earth.

Ana Mendez under the approval of Peter Wagner went with Rony Chaves, Silvia Venezuela, Doris Wagner and others to Nepal. Doris and Silvia led a group in spirit warfare prayer at the Everest View hotel, Mendez, Chaves with a few others hiked Mt. Everest to Battle the Queen of heaven and defeat her so Babylon would be overthrown. Because: "the prince of this world has established his dwelling place, a place where the imitator could sit like God over all the earth. This place is the highest mountain on the world it is Mt. Everest” (DVD “Mount Everest Expedition”).

We heard of this expedition in the late 90’s but had not seen what actually took place. What we see them doing is both eerie and disturbing. Enhance your biblical education on these mystical practices that have entered the church. This video will bring awareness to the body of Christ of what is really being practiced in their spirit warfare methods and how far removed it is from what the Bible actually teaches. Become educated to prevent you and others from any involvement with spiritual warfare taught by the New apostles and prophets movement under Peter Wagner and Chuck Pierce.

The video is 1 hour long with clips and power point explanations of their spirit warfare


Is Yoga a neutral, non religious physical exercise that can it be practiced with the Christian faith without any repercussions?

An in depth look at what Yoga really is and how it is affecting society and especially the church. The accompanying power point presentation will make it clear that Yoga is a not just a physical  exercise.

Deception seems to be in every aspect of our lives. One of the strongest, deepest and most influential deceptions in our day is the Environmental movement. It has finally reached a crescendo with the exposure of emails of scientists that covered up the facts for their agenda.

Is global warming science, politics or religious? Is this really a life or death issue for the planet and her creatures or is there more to this than what we have been told?

How accurate are the Scientists findings. As controversial as this topic is, we can see the media is on the side of science, BAD science, dishonest conclusions are promoted in the media as if they are factual.

Understanding the new age agenda that has influenced nearly everything. Its not about Global warming but about using this threat to have control. What we had heard for years is now confirmed as the globalists agenda. Transformation of countries through Green policies. Where did it begin? Where is it leading us? What is their purpose in wanting people to be environmentally friendly. Who are some of the people involved and how organized are they? The video covers the re-education of our children to be global citizens, the media's bias and subsequent brainwashing of the masses to accept green policies. it has also infringed on the church. This video presents the quotes of those involved and gives answers through power point, videos; with logic, actual facts and the Bible. Be aware of what is taking place, become educated,  this issue is not going away and is affecting Christianity.

The Parable of the Trees - Judges 9

The trees once went forth to anoint a king over them. 'the olive tree', 'the fig tree', 'the vine', were asked but refused to rule over the people but instead all the trees said to the bramble, 'You come and reign over us!' And the bramble said to the trees, 'If in truth you anoint me as king over you.'

This is a prophetic parable of Israel and the nations. What are the nations wanting to see happen today, what are we seeing that is fulfilling prophecy.

 Spirit of Truth or Spirit of error?


Have you ever wondered why there are people who say Hinn's teachings are unbiblical?  Ever have a problem with a friend or family member understanding what Benny Hinn teaches is wrong? This video will help solve these obstacles. 

This video contains a wealth of old and new video quotes with biblically based commentary. The facts presented on this video are documented and undeniable. We believe you will find this to be a valuable resource in learning to discern whether these teachers are teaching in the SPIRIT OF TRUTH OR SPIRIT OF ERROR! This video has a powerful impact to deliver someone from the falsehood that is being promoted in Hinn's teaching.

Statements like  "I am a little messiah.” “I am a little god.” “I Am.”   “Jesus Christ will appear bodily in upcoming crusades”  This video explores the world of Benny Hinn to a depth that few others have gone. Are his miracle and healing claims accurate? Is his teaching biblical? Is his transferable “anointing” from God? Do his teachings and prophesies prove that he is the type of teacher Christ told us to avoid? This video features an informal, impromptu discussion of the teachings and practices of Benny Hinn and others by three apologists who have been studying Hinn for years. Jacob Prasch of Moriel Ministries, Mike Oppenheimer of Let Us Reason Ministries and Sandy Simpson of Deception In The Church. Apologists share their concerns about the current level of discernment among Christians with regard to teachers like Benny Hinn. The video takes an in depth look at Hinn's ministry for the last 10 years. Biblically refuting the doctrines and practices that have made Hinn's ministry famous..

 the Indigenous People's movement

There have always been numerous possibilities on how the worlds religions would unite. Over the last several years a new missiology has surfaced that actually makes use of the former false gods and worship practices of various cultures in this movements evangelistic efforts to reach different cultures. The Indigenous People's movement is teaching Christians to “redeem” their cultures by worshipping their former gods, calling them YHWH. Are the gods of the nations the same God of Israel?

False teachings of the Third Wave concepts, New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), Dominionism,  and many other false theological systems find their place in this movement. Yet it has it’s own shrewd distinctive. Daniel Kikawa, Richard Twiss, YWAM and many others are teaching unbiblical ways to evangelize the nations.

This DVD video series features Mike Oppenheimer and Sandy Simpson and their in depth research regarding the First Nations Movement and World Christian Gatherings of Indigenous Peoples. This is an issue that pastors and missionaries need to be informed of because it goes to the core of evangelism and preaching the Gospel.

Over 3- 1/2 hours long. 2 DVD set



The New Apostolic Reformation
What is it and where is it going?

This is the video you need to see to know what the new apostolic reformation is all about.

The International Coalition of Apostles headed by C. Peter Wagner is the most influential purveyor of the New Apostolic Reformation, a term coined by Wagner. This organization is really an extension of the New Order of the Latter Rain whose influences and mentors include William Branham, Franklin Hall, the Hawtin brothers, and more recently Bill Hamon, Paul Cain and the Kansas City Prophets. The doctrines of the Latter Rain have influenced most of the televangelists on TV today, and so have crept deceptively into many denominations. The main heretical teachings of the New Order Of The Latter Rain, as ruled in 1949 at the General Council of the Assemblies of God held in Seattle, were as follows: (1) The restoration of foundational apostles and prophets in the churches. (2) The teaching and promotion of a transferable impartation or anointings that are passed on "by" the laying on of hands "by" the will of man. (3) Confession and deliverance from sin to men. (4) The impartation of spiritual gifts by the laying on of hands such as the gift of languages for missionary service and other "ministry skills".  (5) The extreme and unscriptural practice of imparting or imposing personal leadings by the means of the gifts of utterance, "word of knowledge" or prophecy. (6) Distortions of scripture interpretations, which are in opposition to teachings and practices generally accepted among the Church.   These doctrines deemed heretical by the Assemblies Of God in 1949, which are now common fare because of the Brownsville 'Revival" and the Third Wave movement, are all being promoted today in the New Apostolic Reformation. This video will expose, by way of video and quotes from written materials by adherents of the ICA, the false apostles, false prophets and false teachers of the New Apostolic Reformation. A number of the individuals mentioned by name in this video claim to be Bible-believing born again evangelicals. But in reality they are teaching and promoting doctrines that are not only dangerous, but tear down many or all of the core doctrines upon which the Christian Faith is built. 

 This one-of-a-kind series is a comprehensive report on the New Apostolic Reformation available on 6-DVDs  $53.00 includes shipping for USA
