A Whole Lot Of Wishful Thinking These Days by Sandy Simpson. In this DVD series I want to detail a number of beliefs people have these days that have no basis in Scripture. I am going to roam all over the map, so to speak, and try to give fairly short answers on a number of topics and also give you useful links to articles that will help you deal with any particular issue. It is truly amazing how many false ideas people cling to without giving a thought to what the Bible has to say on the subject.

|The Life, Teachings and Legacy of William Branham|
|by Mike Oppenheimer, 8/18/12 |
One cannot understand the modern miracle revivals or healing crusades of Benny Hinn, Rodney Browne (laughter), Toronto, Brownsville, or Todd Bentley without referring to the healing revivals of the 40's-50's.that were steered and popularized by William Branham. Nearly all the practices of today's apostles, Prophets, healers, faith ministries, are being copied. Visits by angels and the Lord Jesus, words of knowledge (telling people where people live and secrets of their lives), new revelations were all part of William Branham's ministry operation. One can trace portions of the revivals in our modern era back to him. The Latter Rain teachings began by Branham and spread to so many. Branham believed he was born with a personal angel that was a gift. But he did not think of it as such until he was converted and went to church. This gave him an answer to a disembodied voice (spirit) that accompanied him from birth and instructed him through life, telling him future events and diagnosing peoples diseases. The video is filled with audio and video on crucial teachings of Branham (and others that admire him) that show that his angel was in charge of the supernatural taking place. Understanding Branham's ministry in the 40'sand 50's is key to our day. Once we know about Branham we can identify the strange teachings and practices taking place from the new apostles and prophets trying to bring their mystical (Latter Rain) revival in the church today. (you can read our articles on Branham in the Latter rain section). DVD is one hour and 15 minutes long.

|by Roger Oakland |
Understand The Times, 8/18/12
The emerging church talks a lot about the kingdom of God on earth, but in language and philosophy much different from the Bible. One emergent writer hopes the emerging church will handle the problems of this world in a manner that is "smarter" and "more effective" than those who have gone before.

| New Theology, Gnosticism and the New Age|
|by Gene K. Smith, 2006 |
Most Christians don't really want to talk about "negative" issues such as sin and Satan. Most would rather believe the modernist Post Millennial view that the all church members are truly Christian. Many still believe that mankind can, by his own efforts, eliminate evil, poverty, war, etc. and then usher in God's eternal Kingdom for all. But God's unchanging Word presents a different scenario ...

| Quantum Mysticism Conference DVDs|
|by Herescope, 8/21/12 |
Discernment Ministries held a very special research conference in Niles, Michigan June 21-23. Niles is the new home of our ministry's library, the Opal Reddin Library, which archives over 40 years of research material in the Latter Rain, Dominionism, Third Wave and New Apostolic Reformation. We heard incredible sessions from Warren Smith, Dr. Martin Erdmann, Pastor Larry DeBruyn, Gaylene Goodroad, Jewel Grewe, Pastor Jeff Whittaker, and Sarah Leslie, which covered:
· The emerging eschatology involving the return of space alien creatures, Nephilim and Mayan legends in December 2012.
· The rise of Quantum Spirituality, merging quantum physics with eastern mysticism and postmodern evangelicalism.
· Technocracy and Transhumanism and how the this is changing the church and the world.
· The latest research on the New Apostolic Reformation and the Latter Rain false apostles and prophets.
· How Hollywood is being used by the Quantum Spirituality advocates to create stimulating new imagery to promote pagan mythologies and idolatries.
· How evangelical leaders are using ancient occult writings, apocryphal writings, astrology and modern UFO lore to build upon Scripture.
