Bethany’s False Prophet Damon(from Greek DEMON)Thompson Tuesday, Apr 17 2012 

Well, I decided to give in to requests on a new posts and stopped by Bethany.com to see if things are truly turning for the worse as readers claim. Lo’ and behold it’s true. Bethany has brought in a tattooed littered “prophet” Damon[FROM DEMON IN BIBLICAL GREEK] Thompson to prophesy to their congregation and get them in line.  Any student of Biblical Greek will immediately recognize DAMON is a various of biblical greek which means DEMON!! Many baby-books try to clean it up to mean faithful but leave off the part of Faithful-DEMON. This DAMON does everything from humiliate the interns to admit he doesn’t get much Words From The Lord concerning the coming year. These should be red flags to the discerning christian. How can a prophet admit to rarely receiving prophesies?!

00.53 MARK-“God gave me a vision coming into this year and that doesn’t…that very rarely happens for me." http://www.bethany.com/messages/watch/12-gates

The tattooed littered prophet WAS a member of The Ramp Ministries for approximately 10-years. He made several disturbing statements concerning teen homosexuality. After making these crazy prophecies, the ministry split ways with him claiming The Holy Spirit was leading him in another direction. One claim was that gay-teen suicides were not from bullying but from the “demonic force of homosexuality.” He says:

00:32 mark. I was flipping through the channels and watching a program you know what the program was about? It was about bullying! You heard this? Kids are killing themselves because they’re being bullied but what they’re not saying is the kid is not just miserable because he’s being bullied, he’s misrerable because HE’S GAY!! Cause there’s a lot of people that are bullied that never killed themselves! But the boy already hated himself BECAUSE HE WAS DEALING WITH THE DEMONIC FORCE OF HOMOSEXUALITY!!! I know y’all aint gonna help me with this. BUT I’M NOT GOING TO BOW DOWN TO THE CULTURE!!  BEING GAY IS NOT NORMAL!!

Here we have the skin of the truth being stuffed with a lie. Yes, I agree homosexuality is not “normal”. However, this prophet in his violent rhetoric gives full  pardon to those bullying gay teens by claiming it’s the victim who is demon possessed which hated himself to death not bullies. This is should be an embarassment to the Christian Church. Thankfully we have Christian Apololgist Hank Hanegraaf who notes that bullies are causing gay-teens to kill themselves. He adds that it’s not due to “christians” but “bullies”. After hearing Bethany’s prophet screaming and yelling, his disclaimer is hard to believe.

Anyway, back to “prophet”Damon Thompson who was given a platform at Bethany.com. Just a quick list(not exhaustive list) of additional red flags from his mouth in their video here:

  • 01.25 mark -“The Holy Spirit gave me a vision on December 28th. I was driving…showed me 12 gates that would open in 2012….a state of Revival in Louisiana!” Here we go again, every year Bethany’s god is proclaiming this is the year of revival.  Can your prophets come up with something new in first calendar month?!
  • “01:52 Bethany is the hub for awakening America?!”. OMG, it’s the same recycled claims of Joel Stockstill and every other prophet they endorse. It definitely gives Bethany’s congregation a sense of hope. But don’t they get tired of hearing the same empty claims every first quarter of every year?!

  • “03:52 I don’t have that many friends. So the friends that I have are real good friends. I’m kinda like when uh Ike Clanton asked Doc Holiday in the shootout out in Tombstone. Y’all…y’all…Y’ALL NOT THAT SPIRITUAL ARE YA(emphasis mine)?!”. WoW, here is a so-called prophet of God, using a Rated-R movie to explain friendship to God’s Church and ask “Y’all not that spiritual are ya?!”.  I can understand a newbie using a Rated-R movie to explain friendship but not a so-called prophet of over 10-years!!

  • 05:40 “And I think Nick Saban’s name is in the Bible Code somewhere in Revlelations, it’s actually Satan. They just change they just changed the letter. I don’t know if that’s true. That’s just what I’m throwing out there. I don’t know….I don’t know…..you pray about it, see what you feel.”. WoW, a prophet of God calling  fellow Christian Satan because he HATES Alabama State?! Damon Thompson’s character of a biblical prophet gets farther from Scripture, he’s more of a comedian to the world.

  • “05:52. Bethany’s prophet goes on to give a revelation by The Holy Spirit concering Acts 12. He forces  a meaning onto The Book of Acts that is not there. This called Eisegesis, Allegory, and Scripture twisting. This has nothing to do with HIS 12 Gates Theory.

  • 09:13. This Damon[Demon] goes on to do the worse Word-Study I’ve ever seen. His focus is the word “harass, Acts 12:1”. He claims this biblical word, based on the KJV/NKJV, “I don’t know if I could find a GREATER TRANSLATION of what the people that I’m most closely connected to went through in 2011. I guess not here.”. PROBLEM: If the Holy Spirit is giving a revelation to a prophet surely the Word-Study would NOT BE BASED ON ENGLISH and instead the Biblical Greek found in the MSS,  κακῶσαί(KAKOSAI). The Congregations initial responses(nothing) was the right response. They know this text can’t be applied to them. They did not receive physical abuse from the government. This does not stop the Damon’s twisting of KAKOSAI.

 

DAMON is from greek for DEMON. It's an english variation of DAIMON. It's used in Biblical Greek to describe those possessed by devils and speak in The Devil's authority.

 

 The Damon claims the Holy Spirit showed him the following semantics based on prooftexting Acts 12:1′ KAKOSAI:

  1. Harassment last year(09:38)
  2. Some uncommon conflict last year(09:40)
  3. Some struggles within relationships(09:43)
  4. Some struggles with health(09:45).
  5. Some struggles within FINANCE(09:47)
  6. I saw people that I walked with, that I knew had a significant walk with The Lord begin to deal with some challenges last year BECAUSE 11 IS THE NUMBER OF TRANSITION and transition is challenging, transition is uncomfortable, transition is laborious(09:48)

WoW, absolutely a mishandling of God’s Word by this Damon! Again, The Congregation’s initial response was perferct, nothing. The Damon did not like their response and got some “Amens” from a few non-thinkers when we left the context of Acts 12:1 and forced his meaning of “SOME STRUGGLES WITH FINANCE(09:47)”!??

The whole of Acts 12:1-2 about Herod PHYSICALLY PERSECUTING The Church,i.e., KILLING THEM OFF! Here are some Key Words English first, original greek second, meaning last:

  • LAID HANDS, ἐπέβαλεν-TO SEIZE/ARREST, χεῖρας-USE HANDS, κακῶσαί-TO INJURE(acts 12:1)
  • PUT TO DEATH, ἀνεῖλεν-EXTERMINIATE/ANNIHILATE, μαχαίρῃ-DAGGER/STABBER.

This is what disturbs me about Bethany’s prophets. They constantly claim they Holy Spirit shows them these Word-Studies, yet their conclusion blatantly contradicts the text. These prophets even get insulted by the Congregations initial response and then tries to invoke their emotions.

Bethany World Prayer Center, PLEASE USE YOUR BRAINS AND STOP FOLLOWING DAMONS/DEMONS.

Haiti Deserved The EarthQuake? Thursday, Jan 14 2010 

WE HAVE ALREADY SEEN LARRY STOCKSTILL’S RECOMMENDED CHRISTIAN COALITION HAS CALLED OUR FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN PRESIDENT A MONKEY(click here) BUT NOW THE CHRISTIAN COALITIONS FOUNDER PAT ROBERTSON SAYS THE EARTHQUAKE THAT HAS KILLED THOUSANDS OF HAITIANS IS DUE TO THEIR PACT WITH SATAN and IS A BLESSING IN DISGUISE!

IN AGREEMENT BETHANY’S PROPHET JOEL STOCKSTILL  CLAIMS HAITI IS “…THE MOST SATANIC , VOODOO INFESTED NATION IN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE”(his blog entry here!

 

This is another self-proclaimed prophet who claims that Haiti's destruction is a blessing in disguise because atleast they'll get newer buildings. Adding insult to injury,this prophet claims the earthquake is a result of The Nation of Haiti making a pact with Satan to get rid of their slave masters and Satan agreed to chase the French oppressors out of Haiti on their behalf.

 

 VIDEO HERE: “prophet” Pat Roberston’s claims

The Ambassador of Hait responds to the racist rumors about the kidnapped Africans’ freedom and people like Joel Stockstill and Pat Robertson need to be thankful because it enabled THE LOUISIANA PURCHASE!! View Here:.  Joel, at first you embarassed your black remnant but now your statement is an embarassment to christians worldwide, especially our brothers and sisters in Haiti.

It’s ironic how Pat Robertson blames these victims for their own severe poverty and ignores the following:

These Africans are so judgmental! Jesus clearly tells them not to judge us, WE'RE MAKING DISCIPLES!! They aren't doing anything but complaining against our version of Christianity but that's just their opinion. It's not about who has the right Jesus, these Africans are so judgmental! (Pat Roberston blames them for their own poverty and ignores the facts that:

 

  1. THESE AFRICANS WERE KIDNAPPED FROM THEIR OWN LAND
  2. THESE AFRICAN WERE KIDNAPPED FROM THEIR FAMILIES
  3. THESE AFRICANS WERE KEPT FROM LEARNING OR EDUCATING THEMSELVES
  4. THESE AFRICANS WERE FORCED INTO HARD LABOR
  5. THESE AFRICANS WERE EXPOSED TO MANY EUROPEAN DISEASES
  6. THE CONQUERORS EXPLOITED THE ISLAND FOR ITS GOLD
  7. THE AFRICAN WHO REFUSED TO MINE WERE SLAUGHTERED
  8. THE INDIGENOUS AND AFRICANS FLED TO THE MOUNTAINS IN ISOLATION
  9. MALNUTRITION BY EUROPEANS CAUSED FURTHER DISEASE
  10.  THE FRENCH BUCCANEERS FURTHER ADDED TO THE ABOVE PROBLEMS FOR THE KIDNAPPED AFRICANS
  11. THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC BECAME WEALTHIER THAN HAITI BECAUSE THE SLAVE MASTER LIVED AND INVESTED IN THE REPUBLIC WHILE THE SLAVES LIVED AND MINED IN HAITI
  12. HAITI WAS DEVASTED BY SEVERAL WARS FOR FREEDOM
  13. HAITI WAS DEVASTED BY CIVIL WARS BETWEEN THE CONQUERORS THEMSELVES
  14. IN 1937, DICTATOR RAFAEL TRUJILLO ORDERED HIS ARMY TO KILL ANY HAITAN LIVING IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC (KNOW AS THE PARSLEY MASSACRE)
  15. APARTHEID(ANTIHAITIANISMO) WAS INSTITUTED ON THE ISLAND
  16. HAITI IS PREDOMINATELY CHRISTIAN- %80 CATHOLIC, %16 PROTESTANT(though protestants claim it’s reversed), HAITIAN VOODOO AND OTHER UNKNOWN

 

According to Pat Robertson this father has his enslaved ancestors to blame.

 

If there is anyone to blame, it’s those acting on behalf of Europe that ruined the intellect of these people!  Haiti was segregated. The Slave Masters and their descendants even enforced it by executing blacks and the natives. The kidnapped Africans’  people in South Africa experienced the same dictatorship. Are we to conclude that the poverty and corruption  in their country is due to its pact with Satan and not how the European Slave Masters divided the natives and incited this mess before being ousted?

 

"Despite your nations' large Christian population, "the pact" needs to be officially broken. We have this thing called THE PROSPERITY GOSPEL that you should look into. O.K. the first version of oppressive Christiainity you received wasn't correct but this one promises if you give over-and-beyond, Jesus will make your Nation rich! You have to reverse the curse with money!! Oh yeah, you're poor. I'll pray for you.", Prosperity Gospel Televangelist.

However, I know what the Stockstillians will say….

 “It’s o.k., didn’t you hear the prophet Pat Robertson instruct us disciples to pray for them, this is a blessing in disguise and he is a prophet. This is due to their pact with Satan and their poverty has nothing to do with the history of being oppressed or discriminated against”. Furthermore,  our prophets saw this coming they just forgot to blog about it.”

 

In contrast to their Christian Coalition prophet, our President comforted the Haitian Nation by telling them they won’t be forsaken.

I wonder if "The Remnant" at Bethany will continue to remain quiet or continue to condone Larry's endorsment of this false christian agency. They're probally too busy making disciples by signs and wonders.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — A senior White House adviser says evangelist broadcaster Pat Robertson’s remark that Haiti has been “cursed” doesn’t express the spirit of the American people or the president(Click here for story).

 

JOEL STOCKSTILL SAYS HAITI IS THE MOST SATANIC NATION IN THE WEST(read here)

Bethany's "prophet" Joel Stockstill commented on the destruction of Haiti by describing it as "...THE MOST SATANIC, VOODOO INFESTED NATION OF THE WESTERN HEMSIPHERE....". I wonder what the disclaimer will be this time? I also wonder where Bethany's prophet received his Stats' from because I have yet to find any that agrees with this so-called Christian that Haiti is "...THE MOST SATANIC, VOODOO INFESTED NATION OF THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE....". Oh I know, He probally gets his stats from Larry's recommended links, Pat Roberston who likewise claims Haiti is cursed!

It seems Joel forgets the many Trees Bethany erects in God’s House and which they dress up during December has it’s roots in European paganism. I’m sure Bethany’s annointed preachers overlooked the fact that their feast of “easter” with it’s eggs and rabbit symbols also has roots in European paganism. Also, Bethany’s unbiblical rituals like being slain-in-the-spirit and proclaiming failed prophecies and their version of “speaking in tongues” which Paul prohibited.

BUT IT'S OKAY, IT'S EUROPEAN PAGANISM. WE ONLY CONDEMN AFRICAN PAGANISM IF MIXED WITH CHRISTIANITY!

ONCE AGAIN, if we use Joel’s standard back on his ministry we would conclude that Bethany is the most “SATANIC….VOODOO INFESTED” church in the Western Hemisphere. But I know, I know, it’s o.k. because he’s annointed. It’s amazing how he totally ignores the mix of European paganism in his brand of Christianity yet attempts to remove the splinter in the Haitians’ eyes.

ONCE AGAIN, IF WE USE BETHANY'S PROPHET'S STANDARD NORTH AMERICA WOULD BE THE MOST SATANIC NATION NOT HAITI! PASSOVER IS GOD'S HOLY DAY NOT THE idol easter!

P.S., you think the world doesn’t realize these prophets have failed prophecies? Take a look at how Jimmy Kimmel mocks the Church thanks to the many AND I MEAN MANY FAILED PROPHECIES of Larry’s recommended Christian Coalition founder, Pat Robertson(view here).

Obama’s administration with “MONKEYS” and have been successfully sued for discriminating against black employees. Larry Stockstill says he feels “CONFIDENT” about recomending these racist groups. WHY HASN’T THERE BEEN A PUBLIC REBUKE IN THEIR BLOGS ABOUT THESE RACIST STATMENTS? INSTEAD LARRY SPEAKS AT THESE EVENTS!!

     Why? Because Larry Stockstill is one of their “WATCHMEN ON THE WALL” (search his name on their site and watch how many results come back with his attendance!! Again, before they remove these links, verify them for yourelf and then come back to read. The link is below this picturet:

  4. This same Family Research Council allowed a vendor to present our President Obama on a waffle box reminiscent of Aunt Jamima Waffle Box at their Voter’s Value Summit. It wasn’t until this racism was immediately released to the Media, the Family Research Council closed down that booth. Their excuse was that they had no idea what these vendors was going to sell, EVENTHOUGH THESE VENDORS HAD TO GET APPROVAL FROM THE F.R.C.

II.)THE CHRISTIAN COALITION

The Christian Coalition is fighting to save the racist Rush Limbaugh and Fox News

     The CHRISTIAN COALITION also used the derogatory and racist description of “MONKEY” against Pres. Obama AND HIS supporters. They posted an article on their site called “OBAMA’S LEGION OF FLYING MONKEYS“. The President’s white supporter ,Jon Stewart’s description was lightened to a “SILVER BACK BABOON” in contrast to their general description of a flying-monkey.

     Pres. Obama was described as the “KING” of the “MONKEYS“. However Larry’s Christian Coalition is fighting to keep the racists Glenn Beck of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh on air??!! http://www.cc.org/blog/obama039s_legion_flying_monkey039s_hollywood

These Christians Labled Pres. Obama As

     This same Pastor Larry volunteered himself to join Gov. Foster as his personal Pastor as everyone else sought to shun him. Gov. Foster during his campaign gave Former Grand Wizard David Duke $150,000.00 for his KKK mailing list of registered voters. Qualified voter list can be purchased for a few hundred dollars from the Registrar!! Foster gave Duke 20x’s the amount! WHY LARRY STOCKSTILLS’ “CHRISTIAN” BRETHREN CONSTANTLY PURCHASING K.K.K. VOTERS’ LIST??!!

At the sametime the above DOUBLE STANDARD WAS BEING APPLIED, Black employees were suing The Christian Coalition that Larry Stockstill endorses. The Christian Coalition retaliated against their black employees by making them enter through the back door only. A Federal Judge, Judge RICARDO M. URBINA, had to step in and demand The C.C. Stop their retaliations.
(LEE vs. CHRISTIAN COALITION of AMERICA Inc.)

JOEL CARL HUNTER RESIGNED as President of The Christian Coalition due to differences with the majority of it’s members. Mr. Hunter suggested the C.C. fight equally for the Civil Rights of poor people(who are mainly Black People), BUT THE CHRISTIAN COALITION WAS NOT INTERESTED in that, only battling homosexuals. Thus Mr. Hunter IMMEDIATELY RESIGNED!!

PASTOR STEPS DOWN BECAUSE OF DISAGREEMENT WITH THE CHRISTIAN COALITION’S AGENDA(N.Y. Times)

The sad thing Baton Rouge, Larry’s congregation is majority black!!LOL!!! If you visit the sites of these racist organizations, Larry uses the EXACT SAME rhetoric on his blog! While other Christians “SPEAK OUT” and “DISASSOCIATE”, Larry Stockstills happily joins and remains SILENT. Again, so does Larry’s Black “Remnant”. That’s why they stayed out of Jena and Plaquemine’s closing of Black Schools and Mayor Kip Holden’s Night Out On Crime(held at Miracle Place Chrurch in Baker).

Bethany’s Holidays Vs. God’s Holy Days Thursday, Mar 12 2009 

Peace And Grace To You In The Name of Christ Jesus, Our Passover Lamb 

We’ve all seen Pastor Larry Stockstill’s constant call for integrity in the House of God and their actions contradicting. The latest you’ll see is Bethany World Prayer Center’s man made Pagan Feasts celebrations instead of God’s Holy Days.  The first and most obvious is replacing God’s Holy Day with the Roman Catholic Holiday that includes Pagan Rituals.

 

easter idol

 

Now, you ask most Christians about African Paganism(Voodoo, Hoodoo, Witch Craft) and they’ll without hesitation tell you it’s wrong and unbliblical. However, when it comes to European Paganism, that double standard that appeared during the Presidential election comes back.  Pastors will tell you it’s okay to mix European Paganism with Christianity,e.g., Feast of Easter.

 

The name Easter was applied by the Roman Catholic Church onto  God’s Holy Festival of Passover. It’s amazing to see Pastors correct the Roman Catholic Church and its Pope, yet they observe the Catholic’s Holy Days(Easter Mass, Sunday Mass, Mardi Gras, Lent, Christ-Mass/Christmas, Good Friday). Let’s start with the Bible and move towards today to see how the Tradition of The Elders has abolished God’s Holy Days.

 

The Prophet Daniel gave us the agenda and Characteristics of the ANTI-CHRIST/FALSE CHRIST. The one characteristic that pertains to this article is located at Dan.7:25:

  1. He will speak words against the Most High
  2. He will harass the Holy Ones of the Most High
  3. He will try to change their Holy Festivals AND LAWS

Number-3 is what the Roman Catholic Church has done and what many churches follow,i.e., the changing of God’s set Holy Days and Laws. The first time we encountered Larry Stockstill’s authority was at your ENCOUNTER RETREAT. Remember, he isolated you from family/friends and all forms of communication with the outside? His cell leaders had everyone take on the oath to follow God’s Laws and you said amen to receive a curse if you change ANY OF THEM. Well, you wholeheartedly change the Sabbath Day to the pagan Sun’Day AND NOW Passover to the pagan feast of EASTER. Oh Bethany(House of Misery) you rightly deserve the curses. Larry Stockstill, you’re playing God and leading others astray and not back to simplicity and sincerity. THIS IS WHY CHRIST INFORMED US HE DID NOT COME TO ABOLISH HIS FATHER’S LAW AND CALLED FOR THE DEMOTION OF ANYONE WHO DID(Mt. 5:17-19).

 

The meal that Christ ate before the leaders of God’s people falsely accused him unto crucifixion was A PASSOVER MEAL.  If we are Christians(imitators of Christ) why do we not have these concerns:

 

  1. Where will you have us to eat the Passover?(Mt.26:17)
  2. I will keep the Passover AT YOUR HOUSE with MY DISCIPLES(Mt.26:18)
  3. The DISCIPLES DID AS JESUS DIRECTED, They prepared the Passover(Mt.26:19)
  4. I EARNESTLY DESIRE to eat this Passover WITH YOU(Luke 22:15)
  5. DO THIS IN REMEBRANCE OF ME(LUKE 22:19; 1COR.11:24)

 

passover

 

Instead the leaders of our time have joined themselves with man made Holidays which they have mixed with God’s Holy Days.  We have not abolished Passover but we have “changed God’s times(Dan.7:25) to Sun-Day. In the First Council of Nicea(325ad) Emperor Constantine agreed that Passover should no longer be celebrated as the disciples and Christ practiced it but that it should change to Easter. Constantine sent out a letter to “…EVERY NATION UNDER HEAVEN” to obey it. Below are some excerpts from THE SYNODAL LETTER located

 

We further proclaim to you the good news of the agreement
concerning the holy Easter, that this particular also has through your
prayers been rightly settled; so that all our brethren in the East who
formerly followed the custom of the Jews are henceforth to celebrate
the said most sacred feast of Easter AT THE SAME TIME WITH THE ROMANS
and yourselves and all those who have observed Easter from the
beginning.(The whole issue at the bottom of this letter preserved by Jesuit University of New York)

 

I encourage you to research the Roman Emperor Constantine’s Christianity. All scholars/historians, both christian and secular, will inform you that the Roman Emperor never truly converted to Christianity, he loved the idea of worshipping on Sun-Day because this is what he was doing before coming to Christ. HE WAS AN IDOL WORSHIPPER who set your Holy Days.

 

Paul wrote to the Corinthian Congregation about how they celebrated their Passover Feast with Sexual Sin. The Corinthian Church thought this was one big party like their former Idol Feasts were. After correcting them and instructing them to remove the LEAVEN from their lives HE INSTRUCTS THEM TO CELEBRATE PASSOVER!!

 

1Cor. 5:7-8 For Christ OUR PASSOVER LAMB has been sacrificed.  Therefore, LET US CELEBRATE THE FEASTIVAL….

 

Please read the whole context of 1Cor. 5:1-9. Paul instructs the Corinthians to first remove the leaven from their Congregation and celebrate because Our Passover Lamb has been sacrificed. These words mirror the times when Passover was celebrated by the great men of Faith. Cross reference Paul’s letter with Ex.12:21, Ex.13:7, Dt. 16:3,. This is why the Book of Revelation is filled with visions of Christ as a Lamb. Easter and rabbits have nothing to do with Christianity. Easter is leaven mixed into God’s Passover Feasts.  Christ instructs his disciples to “do this in remembrance of me(Lk.22:26). This was not the idol Easter’s Day or the Roman Sun-Day, it was God’s Passover.

 

Ask a Christian why he celebrates Easter instead of Christ’s Passover and he’ll tell you to remember Christ’s ressurection. Christ instructed to remember HIS DEATH NOT HIS RESURRECTION.  The feast of Easter messes God’s Holy Days all up! Christ and Paul state we remember Christ’s Death not ressurection. Paul told the congregation since OUR PASSOVER LAMB WAS SACRIFICED not ressurected. Paul also states(1Cor.11:25-27), “You proclaim the Lord’s Death Till he comes”.

 

Since The Romans changed God’s times and laws. This Passover meal was relabled “the Lord’s Supper” and placed on Sunday usually the first Sun-Day of every month.  Surely, if Bethany seeks to be a role model REMNANT, they’ll abandon The Roman Catholic Pagan Feasts for God’s appointed times.

Bristol Palin 17,Sex Before Marriage and Bethany’s Silence Thursday, Jan 8 2009 

PEACE AND GRACE TO YOU IN THE NAME OF CHRIST JESUS OUR ONLY STANDARD!

photo03

     It’s no longer astonishing to see how The Stockstills at Bethany promoted Gov. Sarah Palin and demoted President Barack Obama. They continued to expose the splinters in Barack’s eyes while ignoring the beams blocking Sarah’s eyes.  We constantly heard and read of Sarah’s godliness and leadership and how much of a mom she was leading her children down a godly path. Yet, one of the many beams the Stockstill’s failed to inform their gullible congregation was the pregnant state of her UNWED-TEEN daughter Bristol Palin.

 

     How could this be? How could the Stockstills ignore Bristol Palin’s pregnancy in their blogs and praises of their godliness?! How could the Stockstills ignore Bristol Palin’s conception without being married?!  The answer is simple. Anything but a black president!! It makes no other sense. This women has showed she was a dunce and failure. Her daughter’s pregnancy shows, the lack of leadership. The Stockstill’s cover up shows deception. I was waiting to see when this pregnancy would be brought up while they chastised Barack and it never was and now Bristol has given birth. Still nothing by the Stockstills….

 

To the unwed pregnant mother’s at Bethany, Are you being praised like Bristol Palin while your teen pregnancy is being ignored and your “godliness” promoted? Or are you being told to repent of your sin? Seeing how the Stockstill’s constantly quoted Fox News and rebuked Barack Obama, How do you think they would’ve responded if Obama had an unwed pregnant teen daughter? They definitely wouldn’t conceal that fact as they did with the Palins.  Again, It’s a double-standard. It’s cute when they(The Palins) do it but a sin when blacks do it.

The most astonishing thing is that Bristol Palin who is supposed to be “annointed” and “Spirit Filled” DOESN’T EVEN BELIEVE IN ABISTINENCE, she says that it’s “UNREALISTIC“.(CLICK HERE). Abstinence is realistic “IF YOUR TRULY GROUNDED IN GOD”!

Furthermore, when the press asked Gov. Palin if her daughter was going to get married to the baby’s father, Gov. Palin did not have an anwer. She was clueless. Surely the Stockstills should have informed us of this and preached a sermon about it BUT NO!! NOT THEIR PRECIOUS PRINCESS!

Why didn’t you praise Sasha Obama and Malia Obama during the campaign??!!

     Hank Hanergraaf of the Christian Research Institute has been sounding the alarm about this dangerous and unbiblical ritual when it appeared in the Pensacola/Brownsville Revival. As we have seen from Charisma Magazine, these cult leaders are a band of traveling con-artist. It’s sad to see Bethany has not only welcomed these men (Steve Hill, David Yonggi Cho,etc.) but have adopted their “weird practices” which Larry Stockstill claimed on his blog to abandon. This occultic ritual was popularized by Prosperity Televangelist Benny Hinn. Click here for one of many episodes.

 

     I highly recommend Hank Hanergraaf’s book, Counterfeit Revival, which has conducted extensive research about this travelling cult and it’s coercion tactics which are not only unbiblical but very dangerous!! PROTECT YOUR FAMILY!!! Here is a sample from Chapter-19’s “SEVEN SCRIPTURAL PRETEXTS”

 

“Ex-Domincan priest Father Francis MacNutt not only creates credibility for the slain in the spirit phenomennon by pointing to QUAKERS and SHAKERS in past revivals, but he also points to movers and shakers in the present revival. In Overcome By The Spirit, he writes, ‘in Protestant revivals, as we have seen, many people trembled and shook. So, too, in our day, the shaking phenomenon occurs in John Wimber’s conferences’. MacNutt points out that at one time Wimber was a Quaker pastor and presumes that the “shaking phenmenon is part of John’s spiritual heritage”.

Wimber himself, HOWEVER, focuses on Scripture rather than on his spiritual heritage as a Quaker. In 1981 Wimber(the founder of the International Association of Vineyard Churches) preached a series of sermons titled “Spiritual Phenomena:SLAIN IN THE SPIRIT”.

In this series Wimber points out that “the model as we’ve seen it ministered out in the land” IS NOT FOUND IN SCRIPTURE: ‘There’s no place in the Bible where people were lined up and Jesus or Paul or anyone else went along and bapped them on the head and watched them go down, one after another, and somebody else ran along behind. Can you picture Peter and James-‘Hold it, Hold it, hold it!”- running along behind trying to catch them? And so the model that we’re seeing, either on stage or television, IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM ANYTHING THAT’S IN SCRIPTURE(john wimber, “spiritual phenomena: slain in the spirit-part 1, Vineyard Christian Fellowship, Anaheim, Ca, 1981, audiotape).

 

slain_spirit2163

 

     Remember how earlier we talked about how important it is to remain in context and proved successfully how Larry Stockstill practiced Eisegesis to get over-and-above donations from the naive(2Sam.24:24). Well, this former Quaker, John Wimber, practices the same flawed Hermeneutics. One of the Scriptures that John Wimber uses to have his disciples practice the occultic “Slain In The Spirit”  is Gen.2:21.

 

21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then he took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh.

 

On the same audiotaped sermon(Wimber,Spiritual Phenomena: Slain in the Spirit-Part 1) Wimber insists that translators, who’ve never been “slain in the spirit” are incorrect for translating the hebrew word “YASHEN” in Gen.2:21 as “sleep” because it means to become slack.  Brothers and sisters this is the same type of eisegesis conducted by Connie Williams on Joel’s website about the etymology for Sarah Palin!

Two things should be noted;

  1. The hebrew YASHEN  is not in Gen.2:21
  2. YASHEN still means sleep not “slack” or “to become slack”

 

John Wimber’s deception for this occultic practice is based on lies!  Again, this is the same practice of Bethany. They don’t care what the context of the Chapter is as long as they verse has the right words to appear to support their practices. John Wimber at first told the truth and stated this ritual is not found in Scripture but when it’s popularity caught on, he isolated verses from their context to prove it is biblical. Since Christians didn’t test the ex-Quaker’s prooftext, he continued isolating verses to support his ritual of being “slain in the spirit”. The next six are:

  1. Abram FELL  on his face and God talked to him(Gen.17:3)

 

As Hank documents on Pg.186(Chapter-19, Slain In The Spirit, Seven Scriptural Pretexts) of how Wimber claims the original hebrew in Gen.17:3 for FELL is actually RADAM but it was actually NAPHAL and knowing a good interpreter sticks with the context, Hank elucidates “Furthermore, the Almighty did not cause Abraham to fall through a blow that stupefied and knocked him senseless, rather Abraham fell of his own accord in response to the Majesty of the Almighty. FINALLY, AS HE DID WITH ADAM, WIMBER INTERPRETS SCRIPTURE IN LIGHT EXPERIENCE RATHER THAN INTERPRETING EXPERIENCE IN LIGHT OF SCRIPTURE”. It should also be noted brothers and sisters that the ENEMIES of God fall backwards as opposed to falling forward like the friends of God do in the Holy Bible.  

Since you can see the abuse of context I’ll simply list the other pre-texts and let you continue studying on your own.

 

2.Acts 10:9-10

3.Acts 9:3-4

4.Rev.1:17

5.John 18:6

 

Remember context is very important to honest interpretation. Isolating sentences from the chapters can be made to say ANYTHING and back up ANY RITUAL.  I’ll leave you with a quote from the Dictionary of Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements(Pg. 790-791):

 

“An entire battalion of Scripture proof texts is enlisted to support the legitacy of the phenomenon, ALTHOUGH SCRIPTURE OFFERS NO SUPPORT for the phenomenon AS SOMETHING TO BE EXPECTED IN THE NORMAL CHRISTIAN LIFE….From an experiential standpoint it is unquestionable that through the centuries Christians have experienced a psycho-physical phenomenon in which people fall down; morever, they have attributed the experience to God. It is equally questionable that there is NO BIBLICAL EVIDENCE FOR THE EXPERIENCE as normative in Christian life. ”

    

      Again, I sincerely pray for your safety. I sincerely ask You Father that these who seek your presence will realize the counterfeits they’ve been exposed to. I also pray ADONAI that Larry Stockstill will truthfully “come back to” sincerity and turn away from these occultic practices, Amen!

Bethany’s Encounter Pt.1(Forget The Sabbath) Thursday, Dec 18 2008 

Peace and Grace to you in the name of Christ Jesus

     How many of you have attended Bethany’s Enounter and were led to take upon your self the vows of the ten commandments? I did and I’m still repenting for being led astray to their editing of God’s Law. A red flag and alarm bells went off in my mind when we approached the FOURTH COMMANDMENT :

 

 8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.(Ex.20:8)

 

    

     However, when the “cell leaders” quoted the Sabbath Commandment it was like this:

 

“Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy…. If you can’t give just one day to God something is wrong. So every Sun-day[1st. Day] you need to be in church giving praise to God”.

 

shabbat1

    

     Next we responded by saying the Amens, blessings, and curses found at Deuteronomy 27 -28. Deuteronomy 28:15 says that if we go astray from the laws of ADONAI we will be placed under a curse. It’s also ironic that Bethany in original Hebrew means (House of Misery/Poverty).

 

The problem: BETHANY WORLD PRAYER CENTER changed the fourth commandment to say we will honor the 1st. Day and set it apart as a Holy Convocation  and completely abandon the day ADONAI told us to keep AND TO WHICH WE VOWED TO KEEP. The word keep in the original language, shamar, literally means to KEEP AS IN PROTECT.  ADONAI instructed those who accepted these vows to PROMISE that we would PROTECT (DT.5:12) THIS DAY AS HOLY (EX.20:8). Those who changed ADONAI’S laws and appointed time(s) have violated this covenant and we know what the wages of sin is, death. This is the longest of the ten commandments yet the Stockstills are so bold that they don’t even have the decency to keep it as a whole sentence and render it a fragment.

 

     ADONAI warns us further about mankind editing his laws as noted at Dt.4:2

 

     You shall not add  to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

 

     Christ backs up his Father about editing The Laws of God, MT.5:17-19:

 

5:17
Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

 

 

 

 

 

5:18
I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

 

 

 

 

 

5:19
Anyone who LOOSENS one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

 

 

 

 

 

 

     Christ’s instructions shows him to be the TRUE CHRIST and NOT THE ANTI-CHRIST, AMEN!! The Prophet Daniel warns us about the Anti-Christ and his regard for ADONAI’S Laws.  Prophet Daniel states his role in the last days,i.e., the Anti-Christ will seek to change God’s Laws and appointed times.

“He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time. DAN.7:25)”

 

With all of these warnings about changing ADONAI’S laws, taking upon ourselves the blessings/curses with the AMENS, and changing GOD’s times and Laws, What do we deserve if we continue in this way? I’ll tell you………….. IT’S A HOUSE OF MISERY(BETHANY).

Oral Roberts & O.R.University Wednesday, Nov 26 2008 

Article forthcoming. I encourage all to conduct their own research as to the failed prophecies by Oral Roberts and the financial mishandlings by him and his family.

Joel Stockstill proudly hails this deceiver as a man of God.

False Prophet Kim Clement Wednesday, Nov 26 2008 

This is what the Lord Almighty says: “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord(Jer.23:16).

 

“This is what the Lord says– your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: who foils the signs of false prophets and makes fools of diviners(Is.44:24-25)

 

     Well, now it makes sense why The Stockstill’s at Bethany are so pro-bush! They submit to the prophecies of TBN false prophet, Kim Clement. Kim Clement constantly receives prophecies from God about how a godly man George W. Bush is and how he’s such a prayer warrior.

 

Like Joel and Larry Stockstill, Kim Clement claims to be a biblical prophet. Their prophecies have a 50/50 chance of being fulfilled. The more vague it is, the more probable.

Like Joel and Larry Stockstill, Kim Clement claims to be a biblical prophet. Their prophecies have a 50/50 chance of being fulfilled. The more vague it is, the more probable.

 

 

     I can say false because a prohet who claims to speak on behalf of The Almighty God can not be 50% correct, he must be 100% correct. Why? Because it’s real easy to be correct half of the time and amaze the simple minded. It’s not their correct hypothesis we should hold to but their failed prophecies. Unfortunately, Bethany constantly brings up this False Prophet as a resource and the Stockstill’s words are identical to Kim Clement’s words. Let’s look at one of Kim Clement’s obvious failed prophecy concerning Bush; link also provided for reference:

Tribute to President George W. Bush 
Nov 2, 2004

In honor of President George W. Bush, posted below are a few words of prophetic significance given by Kim, regarding his destiny to lead our Nation. On October 12, 2004 Kim was privileged to personally minister a word to President George W. Bush in Paradise Valley, AZ.
 

October 24, 2004- Humble, TX
“The Spirit of God has announced that, you have looked at candidates for the next four years. I have looked at a man after my own that will pray. I am looking and have searched for a man who would pray in the house called White, and I have found that man. He shall pray. He shall pray sturdily, powerfully, until the year 2006…and a great storm shall rise upon America. But because of the prayers of George W. Bush, I will save this country from a damage and a destruction upon your economy and upon your children.

Yes, you may look at this prophet and say, what would he know about American politics? But I have taken the mantle that rested upon Ronald Reagan in the heart and have placed it upon this man—President Bush. For what purpose? To bring again honor and dignity to the office of the President of the United States of America.

Nations shall come one by one and they will say, we were mistaken. France! France…who once buried the dead of American soldiers because they fought for you. You will repent for what you have done secretly. Three things shall be exposed because of transactions that took place in France and two other nations. And they shall be repentant. And your allies will increase. Four of your enemies shall become allies, and in the Middle East I will raise up honor because of what this Nation has done. Rejoice, for I am raising up laughter and joy upon your Nation.

A record has been broken. A President has broken a record. I see headlines. Impossible! Nothing, nothing, nothing is impossible.

And they are going to say it’s impossible because of what happened in this election and what happened with the President that broke a record. Listen to me. Nothing is impossible to those that believe.”

 

     George W. Bush is a man after God’s own??!! The economy ((((DID collapsed))))), gasoline rose to an all time high, 401k retirement plans lossed thousands of dollars,thousands of jobs were lost, and the United States received a devasting attack by Muslim extremist/terrorists. If this was the result of a George W. Bush’s praying I don’t want him praying for me and my house. What really got me was the “HOUSE OF WHITE”. Uh…that’s about right!

     This prophet claims that God’s mantle was on George W. Bush, “For what purpose? To bring again honor and dignity to the office of the President of the United States of America.” U.S.A. has lost much honor and dignity in the eyes of the world. George W. Bush has made the office of Presidency a joke in the eyes of America’s citizens. Has George W. Bush really fulfilled the false prophet’s purpose because God has exposed this “christian” as a fraud.

     “Nations shall come one by one and they will say, we were mistaken.” and “they shall be repentant“!!?? O.K., Kim Clement needs to test the Spirit(s) that he consults in divination because  the  U.S.A. has received several rebukes not other countries submitting to us in repentance.

 

     Even the black republican & Christian Armstrong Williams commented:

 

Armstrong Williams, an African American conservative and talk radio host who is not an Obamacon but said he might become one: “I’m not going to just blindly go to the polls and vote for someone because they’re a Republican anymore. I wouldn’t have given two cents of thought to this in the past, but fortunately I’m maturing and fortunately for the first time in my life I could vote for a Democrat for president.” Williams refuses to base his vote on race, “however the stain of America is race, human slavery and de jure segregation and no one can ignore the fact that since the founding of this country, only white men have occupied the White House.”

 

    That’s good to hear because I remember living up North and constantly hearing Armstrong’s radio show and how be chastised other minorities for going against the the republicans which he saw as Christian. I agree we can not ignore the facts. In particular, we can not ignore the past 8years and claim George W. Bush is a man after God’s own.

 

One can go on and on about this false prophet who sways toward whoever is in power!! In contradiction to Bush being a man of prayer and a man after God’s own and God will save America BECAUSE OF  the prayers’ of Bush NOW SAYS:

 

 I will bring you out of what they call a recession into your highest economy that you’ve ever had in your next four years, says the Spirit of God.

 

Now remember, during Bush’s reign as Presidency he was supposed to care of America through the power of prayer. But now Kim Clement wants to hop on the Obama band-wagon. I pray that Barack won’t fall for Kim’s tricks and consult his divinations. President Barack(Blessed) please use discernment. It’s a little interesting though despite all the signs and symptoms Kim Clement like Bush fails to call it a recession and maintains “…what THEY CALL a recession….”. It is what it is.

However, He still holds in “prophecy” that Bush will be vindicated by God. It’s not the media it’s the economy that testifies against George W. Bush!! Kim states in his prophecy:

 

Your present President will not leave his office or his term in shame.  There will be a very precise vindication  of numerous things that were scorned, that were mocked by men that thought they knew but understood nothing.  And when the baton is handed over, God said there shall be no fear in the nation.  Now take that and be secure. 

 

 

Kim Clement is a trip. He’s definitely playing both sides of the fence. Kim Clement cites an article where uranium was removed secretely from Iraq as proof that Bush is vindicating for entering Iraq. The problems that arise with this:

 

  1. We’re suppose to be hunting for Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan NOT IRAQ
  2. The terrorist responsible for 911 are Al-Queda NOT Iraq’s President
  3. The uranium of Iraq was NOT weapons grade
  4. According to the International Courts, the uranium was legal to possess(however Bush went against them and started his war)

 

And speaking of the war Bush claimed about two years ago the war was a success AND OVER.  Yet go and research as to how many of our children have died since then. Kim Clement’s ‘prophecies” are so broad. There is even one where he attempts to explain away because it never came to pass.  So he says well it could mean this or it could mean that, LOL. and the sheep continue to get fleeced. The ones that do come to pass are so obvious a blind man could have seen these events coming.

 

    In repsonse to the crashing economy, he now claims God told him it’s only for a short time. This is in total contradiction to Bush’s prayers and a Man after God’s own.  The economy with the 2nd. election of George Bush was supposed to great and bring HONOR. This dude is a clown!! Link below to see his revision of prophecy….

 

Dear Warriors,

    I would like to take a moment to encourage you in regards to the present economic crisis.

 

Be careful my people

David Yonggi Cho Wednesday, Oct 1 2008 

     One of the originators of the “Prosperity Gospel”(A.K.A., Gospel of Greed, Name-it and Claim-it) and psuedo prophet behind the Brownesville Revival and Bethany’s Theology is Paul Yonggi Cho(formerly David).

 successfulhomecellgroups200

     According to the Encyclopedia of Evangelism (Randall Balmer, 2004, Baylor University Press, Brownesville Revival,Pg.107):

 

“The Brownesville Revival can also lay claim to prophecy. Paul Yonggi Cho claimed that in course of praying for revival in America God prompted him to look at a map of the United States. His finger went to Pensacola, which is known as the ‘gay Rivera’ because of its general toleration of homosexuals. “I sensed the Lord say, I am going to send revival to the seaside city of Penscola, and it will spread like fire until all of America has been consumed by it”, Cho wrote in the foreword to Kilpatrick’s book, Feast of Fire.

An investigative report by the Pensacola News-Journal that same year(1997), however, revealed that some “converts” had been coached and that Hill (Steve Hill), one of the Pastors had significantly exaggerated his pre-conversion life in order to increase the “impact” of his autobiography, STONE COLD HEART.

 

     As we see, Paul/David Cho, claims to have “sensed” the voice of The Almighty to start to lead the way for massive revival in Pensacola, Florida. However, any small amount of research will show that the Revival not only came to nothing but was actually plagued with lies. Steve Hill claimed Congressman were attending and repenting and police officers were bringing inmates for conversion. All exposed by the investigative reporting from the Pensacola News-Journal as “exaggerated”. It should be noted that the Penscola News-Journal at first published favourable reports about the Brownesville Revival(A.K.A. Pensacola Outpouring) until they attempted to publish another favourable report only to be disappointed!!

 

     Pastor Larry Stockstill/Bethany’s Prosperity Theology can also be traced to David/Paul Yonggi Cho. It should be noted that Larry Stockstill does inform the reader that his book, THE LAW$ OF INCREA$E, is “not another name-it and claim-it” modus operandi. This is half true, His theology is actually built upon the name-it and claim-it doctrine. A concise version of Larry’s eisegesis and doctrine can be viewed in his 20/20 scam. Pastor Larry also proudly informs that he serves on Propeht Cho’s board in Seoul, Korea. As noted(The New International Dictionary of Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements, Stanley M. Burgess, Editor and Eduard M. Van Der Mass, Pg.521-522):

 

“Pastor Cho’s success formula is a combination of positive thinking and positive confession: “Think It, See It, Name It, Speak It in boldness(Kennedy,202)”. He teaches that through the power of the spoken word the Spirit-led believer can “create and release teh presence of Jesus Christ(Cho,81). He emphasizes being specific prayer:

One must visualize and specificy exactly what is needed, but is not an instant cure-all. Answers to prayers may take weeks or months”

 

     It’s no coincedence that Larry Stockstill and his family followed Cho’s advice and NAMED AND CLAIMED Amy Stockstill’s healing (See articl Claiming The Victory Precosously) which failed miserably!! This should be proof enough for Larry Stockstill to abandon Cho’s false doctrine. If there is one thing these Name-it and Claim-it televangelist should be admired for, it’s their ability to sneak in disclaimers. They wil will spend 99.9% of their time teaching you to “give over and beyond”, name-it and claim-it, blab-it and grab-it, dress like success, etc.” and yet when the naive get in a bind over this false doctrine, the disclaimer is pointed out:

 

  • You obviously don’t have enough faith
  • Put more money down on that blessing
  • Don’t let the devil steal your blessing
  • You’re time is coming(usually preached at the beginning of every year)
  • You’re going through a season

 

     All of this while they’re on vacation doing “Missionary work”, yeah…right, LOL!

 

     What is interesting is another doctrine usually found in the trick bag of these Televangelists. Again, they spend the majority of their time preaching prosperity, in particular money, and the only warning you get “…but is not an INSTANT cure-all”. Please note what the profit (pun intended) Cho is saying. He did not say, “Money isn’t a cure-all” he claims money isn’t an “INSTANT” cure-all.  He obviously disagrees with the Apostle Paul that money is the root of all sorts of evil! Cho backs up his money is not an “instant” cure-all with the exhortation, “Answers to prayers may take week or months”.

     The Holy Scriptures never teach us that money is a cure-all, whether instantly or not. Furthermore, when the disciples asked Christ to teach them to pray He specifically warned them afterwards(Mt.6):

 

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 “But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal.

 

     This whole chapter is an excellent recording on the specifi context of Christ’s teaching on prayer and wanting treasures. Christ warns His disciples that is what the “Hypocrites” and “Pagans” do(Mt.6:7). They go on and on and on, using their many words thinking they’ll be heard. This brings us to Profit Cho’s next teaching which contradicts Christ’s.

 

“He recommends that ministers in his church spend three hours daily in prayer(The New International Dictionary of Pentecostal and Charismatic movements, Stanley M. Burgess Editor & Eduard M. Van Der Mass, Pg.521-522)

 

     The (K)ing (J)ames (V)ersion rendered the original greek word Battalogeo as “repitition”. Yet the academic dictionaries inform us it means to “babble, use many words(Kittel’s TDNT)”. So “repittion” should be understood as repeating words(many words) and not repeating a formula or repeating the same word over and over or the Dictioary of Biblical Semantics:

 

33.88 βατταλογέωa: to speak much or extensively, with a possible added implication of meaningless words—‘to use many words, to speak for a long time.’

Please brothers and sisters in Christ, don’t follow this false prophet’s teaching not matter how seductive it sounds. Test all things by Christ!  I’m out of time but more to come on Prophet Cho’s cell groups (sound familiar?) and and praying for the 3-BEAT BLESSINGS OF HEALT, WEALTH, AND SUCCESS.”.  Also, the claim of Bethany and the rest of these televangelist to be “neo-charismatics” or the third-wave movement. It’s ironic how members of their congregation have no idea their church is actually part of this movement and contradict their pastors by stating, “oh, our church is non-denominational”.
Sincerely,
Ovadyah
