Bethel Redding youth leader says Jesus asked him for forgiveness!


The Bethel Heresies Continue…

Originally posted on My Word Like Fire:

One more in a long train wreck of false claims and teachings from Bethel Redding. This youth leader said that in a vision Jesus picked him up, began to weep, and asked his forgiveness.

What about the people listening to this youth leader make such a heretical statement? Has anyone corrected this?

We have seen some unholy things come from Bill Johnson’s Bethel Church of Redding, California: Watch these videos and read this booklet.

Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints. (Jude 1:3)

The Most Interesting Man in the World



Originally posted on Daily Devotions:

Solomon was the most intelligent, most powerful, most wealthy, and most admired man on the planet. In a real sense, he was the “most interesting man in the world.” Consider the record put forth in 1 Kings:

  • Solomon was foreordained by God
  • Solomon received prophetic revelation from God
  • Solomon was granted wisdom beyond measure
  • Solomon married a princess of Egypt
  • Solomon married whomever he desired
  • Solomon was famous and beloved throughout Israel

  • Solomon had military might on the land; he had 40,000 stalls of horses for his chariots, and 12,000 horsemen
  • Solomon built a great navy

  • Solomon had a massive slave force ready to work on his next project
  • Solomon ruled over all the kingdoms from the Euphrates to the land of the Philistines and to the border of Egypt
  • Solomon collected tribute from the surrounding…

Cessationism – Proving Charismatic Gifts have Ceased


Another “Case For Cessationism”!
Well Done.

Originally posted on Reformedontheweb's Blog:

From The Sword & Trowel 2011, issue 2 by Dr Peter Masters

Does the Bible teach definitively that the charismatic gifts have ceased? Can cessationism (the view that they have ended) be proved? Some say that the cessationism cannot be conclusively proved from Scripture.

We believe, however, that the ceasing of revelatory and sign-gifts in the time of the apostles is very plainly taught in God’s Word, so plainly, in fact, that the opposite view has only seriously appeared in the last 100 years or so.

The term cessationism comes from the great 17th-century confessions of faith, such as the Westminster and Baptist confessions. These both use the same word. Speaking about how God has revealed his will and committed it to the Scriptures, the confessions say, ‘Former ways of God’s revealing his will unto his people being now ceased’. This word does not actually come from the Bible, but…

A Theory: Many Abuser Allies are Not Duped, but are Abusers Themselves as Well



Originally posted on A Cry For Justice:

It is true that the Lord rewards His people and that when we suffer for the name of Christ, the Lord sees it and will reward those who persevere through it to the end. Every true Christian experiences some degree of suffering. Jesus said that the world hated Him and therefore it hates His people. If we were of the world, the world would have no problem with us, but because we are not of the world, the world hates us. That’s it. That’s how it is. And we are called to faithfully confess the name of Christ and persevere in our faith in Him through it all.

Now, I have personally experienced something at the hands of abusers that many of you have as well. Abusers have no empathy and they know that people who are suffering are easier to control than people who are at ease. So an…

16 Then Samuel said to Saul, “Wait, and let me tell you what the Lord said to me last night.” And he said to him, “Speak!”
17 Samuel said, “Is it not true, though you were little in your own eyes, you were made the head of the tribes of Israel? And the Lord anointed you king over Israel, 18 and the Lord sent you on a mission, and said, ‘ Go and utterly destroy the sinners, the Amalekites, and fight against them until they are exterminated. ’ 19 Why then did you not obey the voice of the Lord, but rushed upon the spoil and did what was evil in the sight of the Lord?”
20 Then Saul said to Samuel, “ I did obey the voice of the Lord, and went on the mission on which the Lord sent me, and have brought back Agag…

28 And now little children, abide in him that when he is manifested, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before him at his coming. 29 If you know that he is righteous, you also know that everyone practicing righteousness has been born of him. (1 John 2:28-29 translated from the NA28 Greek text)

I am sure many of you have ran across the following video lately that many younger “Christian leaders” are saying defines Christianity in the eyes of the “Millennials.”

In 1 John 2:28-3:10, the Apostle John gives us “evidence” that is most definitely not “politically correct” that will enable us to determine…
