C. Peter Wagner's
New Apostolic Reformation
C. Peter Wagner: "The New Apostolic Reformation is an extraordinary work of the Holy Spirit that is changing the shape of Christianity globally. It is truly a new day! The Church is changing. New names! New methods! New worship expressions! The Lord is establishing the foundations of the Church for the new millennium. This foundation is built upon apostles and prophets. Apostles execute and establish God's plan on the earth. The time to convene a conference of the different apostolic prophetic streams across this nation is now! This conference will cause the Body to understand God's 'new' order for this coming era." (From the advertising brochure for the National Apostolic-Prophetic Conference, Christian Outreach Centre, Mansfield, Brisbane, Australia. Feb. 2000.)

[ Keepers of the Keys - The Gates and Gatekeepers of the New Order ] - Linked Article - Added 17/04/2001 - Written by Tricia Tillin of Banner Ministries. It is being said that the Church has gatekeeper ministries, possessing the “keys of David” to open and shut spiritual portals; that these gatekeepers can lock out evil and let in righteousness, both in heaven and on earth; that they can even open the gates of heaven to bring back the “king of glory”!
[ Jumping On The Bandwagon ] (Added 04/09/00) "Australian Christian Churches" - Have They Been Seduced By The Beat Of A Different Drummer? After comparing with Scripture all that has been said and done by ACC, I believe the Pentecostal and Charismatic leaders of this new alliance have simply jumped on the Bandwagon to join in playing a selection of Latter Rain, Kingdom Now tunes. Unfortunately, the procession following this wonderfully decorated and colourful Bandwagon continues to attract numbers at a phenomenal rate. See my comments in this article regarding C. Peter Wagner's New Apostolic Reformation for the 21st Century Church.
Generals of Intercession
Cindy Jacobs is President and Co-founder of Generals of Intercessions, an organization devoted to training in militant prayer and spiritual warfare techniques, based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA. Along with such false teachers as Chuck Pierce, Dutch Sheets, Mike Bickle and Tommy Tenney, Cindy Jacobs is a Prophetic Elder in C. Peter Wagner's Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders. This group believes in the restoration of the apostolic ministry.
Jacob's was also involved in the Argentinian "revival" with Ed Silvoso, which was one of the triggers for the "Toronto Blessing" and "Pensacola Outpouring". The articles linked below give some idea of the level of deception this lady is has opened herself to and which she is helping to spread through the congregations of the professing churches.
[ Strange Spiritual Warfare ] - Linked Article - Added 19/07/2002 - David Cloud of Way of Life Literature warns, "My friends, we need to put on the whole armor of God, submit ourselves unto God and resist the Devil today; but we also need to beware of the current spiritual warfare movement. It is the blind leading the blind, and it's ecumenical zeal is helping build the one-world apostate end-times "church."
[ Cindy Jacobs and the Spirit of Jezebel ] - Linked Article - Added 19/07/2002 - Speaking of Cindy Jacobs, Joseph Chambers of Paw Creek Ministries comments, "The world is headed toward Armageddon and its darkest hours of human history, and these "Dominion Theology" thinkers are prophesying lies instead of warning for men to turn to God in repentance. Instead of winning souls for the coming Christ, they are building armies for the coming Antichrist.
[ Prayer Gone Awry ] - Linked Article - Added 19/07/2002 - This article, written by T.A. McMahon, appeared in The Berean Call of June 1998. The amazing account of the mystical and un-biblical "Operation Queen's Palace". McMahon writes, "Tragically, just as biblical teaching regarding faith has been twisted by popular "faith" preachers, so too what the Scriptures say about prayer is being corrupted by many evangelical leaders at the forefront of the national and international prayer movement."
George Otis Jr.
And The Transformations Video
George Otis Jr.: “God has positionally sanctified you and that you're standing in Christ is something that is different from your actual state… Christ has not redeemed us by giving His life as a ransom for our sins in order that He might release us. If we accept the premise that Jesus literally purchased… our salvation with His blood… and He paid the Father… then this approach, first of all portrays God the Father as being vindictive and blood-thirsty and totally incompatible with biblical forgiveness.” (Lectures given to YWAM in Tacoma on Moral Government Theology.)
“Christ has not redeemed us by giving His life as a ransom for our sins in order that He might release us. God never kept man captive in sin. The truth is Christ paid no man’s debt.” (Lectures given to YWAM in Tacoma on Moral Government Theology.)

[ Transformations or Deception ] - Linked Article - Added 17/04/2001 - Written by Tom Smith, May 6, 2000. "We want to see revival, but there are many movements today which are going around claiming revival that do not stand up to scrutiny of scripture (i.e. Toronto Blessing). We are therefore careful to check things out to ensure that when we do endorse a movement, it is the real thing and not a counterfeit. Many churches are using this film as a means to promote "programs" which are developed to make "revival" happen. Unfortunately, a revival manufactured of man is not a move of God, especially if it is based upon false expectations and teachings."

And The Cleansing Stream
Should the Church line up for a dip in the Cleansing Stream or should She simply do as Scripture prescribes and submit Herself to be sanctified and cleansed with the washing of water by the Word of God? The answer is obvious, yet multitudes of professing Christians are rushing in to be duped by false teachers who profess that they need, for a fee, something more than the Gospel to set them free.

Gnosticism and Experiental Religion
[ The Final Quest - Rick Joyner ] - Added 17/07/2001 - This second critique of Rick Joyner's writings by Kevin Reeves, of Alaska, examines the book, "The Final Quest", and compares it with the Word of God. As with his critique of "The Call", Kevin arrives at the conclusion that Joyner's writings and the Bible do not agree. Both books are a serious departure from the Truth as found in Scripture.
[ The Call - Rick Joyner ] - Added 06/06/2001 - Written by Kevin Reeves a Pentecostal Brother in Alaska, who has gone through "The Call", and painstakingly compared it with Rick Joyner's previous book, "The Final Quest", and contrasted them both with the Word of God.
