WEEVILS AND SPIRITUAL EVIL - THE DESTRUCTION OF EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANITY... FROM THE INSIDE OUT!

"But there were false prophets also among the people, 
even as there shall be false teachers among you, 
who privily shall bring in damnable heresies."
(2 Peter 2:1)


Just what have weevils to do with spiritual evil, like false prophets and false teachers who introduce heinous heresies, you might well ask. Well, on the face of it, absolutely nothing at all! But as it happens, these ugly snout-nosed wee bugs provide a most useful metaphor for understanding something of Satan's methods of meddling in Church affairs. Let me attempt to explain how...


PESTS IN THE PANTRY

A glistening grain of rice. 'How nice!' thinks the female weevil, as she scurries over and bores a little hole in it. And into this hole she carefully deposits a fertilized egg, equally carefully sealing up the hole so it looks like it was never there. On the outside, everything looks hunky-dory. It's a solid grain of good rice, or so it seems! But on the inside? Well, that's another matter altogether...

In due course the egg hatches, and the ravenous little larva relentlessly feeds on all the good stuff inside the grain, steadily growing and growing until it reaches a stage of full adulthood. And then it eats its way out of the ruined rice grain. Immediately, the act of mating and fertilization occurs, and the female weevil spots a fresh grain of glistening rice. 'How nice!' she thinks, as she scurries over and bores a little hole in it... And so on and so forth...

IN TIME, THE ENTIRE WEEVIL-INFESTED SACK OF RICE IS TOTALLY RUINED. GOOD FOR ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. EACH INDIVIDUAL GRAIN DESTROYED FROM THE INSIDE OUT.


PESTS IN THE PULPIT

A congregation of evangelical Christians. 'How nauseous!' thinks the Enemy, who hurries over and bores a little hole in it where its spiritual armour is weakest. And into this hole he carefully slips a false teaching, equally carefully sealing up the hole so it looks like it was never there. On the outside everything looks hunky-dory. It's a solid fellowship, as sound as a pound, or so it seems! But on the inside? Well, that's another matter altogether...

In due course the false teaching surfaces, relentlessly eating away all the good stuff inside the church, steadily growing and growing until it reaches a stage of full-blown apostasy. Then the false teacher emerges from the ruined congregation, on a mission to multiply, and the cycle of church infiltration and ruination continues unabated. The Enemy knows of another congregation of evangelical Christians. 'How nauseous!' he thinks, and rushes his false teacher over to bore a little hole in it where its spiritual armour is weakest... And so on and so forth...

IN TIME THE ENTIRE SPIRITUAL EVIL-INFESTED DENOMINATION IS TOTALLY RUINED. GOOD FOR ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. EACH INDIVIDUAL CONGREGATION DESTROYED FROM THE INSIDE OUT.


PESTS IN THE PERSON

But let's take this analogy a very important step further. A church is not bricks and mortar, a church is the people who gather within that structure. Indeed, there is actually only one Church, of which all born-again believers are a part, living bricks if you will, and held together with the mortar of the Holy Spirit. What applies to a denomination, or to an individual fellowship, applies firstly - and always so! - to an individual believer. A church as a whole can only succumb to spiritual evil if the persons who constitute that congregation of the saints INDIVIDUALLY - and only then COLLECTIVELY - succumb to it. 

Every single one of us bar none, has points of weakness which the Enemy is ever ready, waiting and eager to exploit to the fullest. He always knows exactly what buttons to press to get a result. He knows precisely where to bore those little holes where someone's armour is weakest, and sneak in one of his locked-and-loaded Laodicean eggs. And after the incubation, hatching, and eating away of Truth in that person, the mature deception-bug emerges, mates and continues the sorry cycle. 

THE DESTRUCTION OF A CHURCH FROM THE INSIDE OUT BEGINS WITH THE PLANTING OF A FALSE TEACHING AND ITS INCUBATION IN THE SOUL (i.e. MIND, EMOTIONS AND WILL) OF AN INDIVIDUAL. 



CONCLUSION

My friends, we've now reached the point where it is not just the odd sack or two but nearly the entire storehouse that is infested and ruined. Only a Remnant remains uncontaminated, but mark well that even that Remnant is extremely vulnerable. Anyone who thinks that he or she is immune from deception is already deceived in holding that very thought. No-one is immune. Period.

A grain of rice has no defence against the weevil's ravagings. But thanks be to God that in His incredible grace we have access to the strongest defence imaginable against spiritual evil, in the form of the Word that was written and the Word that was made flesh. Even when our soul has been infiltrated, the Word of Truth can still oust that seditious intruder. Why has apostasy reached such epic proportions? Because Scripture has been thrown to the winds, and experience has usurped its rule in peoples' lives. In this "post-modern" world, there is held to be no absolutes and truth is whatever you want it to be, not what it unalterably actually is, now and eternally. Where the Bible is neither read nor upheld in all its fullness, Satan will bore holes without number!

Friends, be diligent to follow the laudable example of the Bereans and check absolutely everything against Scripture. Don't let spiritual evil bore its subtle and insidious way in. If it already has, don't let it remain, don't let error grow into full-blown apostasy. Far too many have already allowed this to happen. Don't be one of them. Ask the Lord in His great mercy for wisdom and discernment, and both treasure and unceasingly use these most precious gifts. Yes, you may end up being at odds with most if not all around you. Faithfulness comes at a cost, it always has. But is the price not completely worth paying? Surely what matters is to one day be able to hear these words from the lips of the Lord of Glory:


"Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, 
I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord."
(Matthew 25:21)

PLEASE, MY FRIENDS, GUARD YOUR SOUL ZEALOUSLY AND JEALOUSLY! BE A WISE AND NOT A FOOLISH VIRGIN AND HAVE YOUR LAMP FULL OF THE OIL OF UNADULTERATED TRUTH, FOR ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING OUTSIDE OF PURE TRUTH IS SIMPLY ABSOLUTE EMPTINESS!

"TAKE HEED THEREFORE THAT THE LIGHT 
WHICH IS IN THEE BE NOT DARKNESS."
(Luke 11:35)

HOW MUCH LONGER WILL THE WARNING SHOFAR BE SOUNDED? - THE "FALLING AWAY" AND THE COMING "STRONG DELUSION!"



"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. 
But they said, We will not walk therein.
Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. 
But they said, We will not hearken.
Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, 
even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, 
nor to my law, but rejected it."
(Jeremiah 6:16-19)

As the wise old saying goes, those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Just as it was in Jeremiah's day, so it will be in ours also. Just as unfaithful Judah was given over into Babylonian captivity, so will today's unfaithful Church be abandoned to its apostasy and taken captive to "Mystery, Babylon the Great" (Revelation 17:5), the one world religious system of the Antichrist.

The old paths. The good way. God's way. The narrow way that leads to life eternal. The one road which alone promises rest for our souls. The road that Judah refused to walk. The road that today's professing Church similarly refuses to walk.

Watchmen. Those who keep vigil on the walls. Those with a sober responsibility to warn of danger by sounding the shofar. The trumpet that Judah refused to heed. The trumpet that today's professing Church similarly refuses to heed.

"Talk to the hand!" was the response of the people then. "Talk to the hand!" is the response of the people now. But there are consequences of such determined disobedience, and those consequences will be dreadful indeed. As in Jeremiah's time, evil will come upon such a people as this, from which there will be no escape. And note, and note well my friends, that it is the Almighty Himself who sends it in judgment. 

Those who now say, "Talk to the hand!" will one day find the hand of God raised against them, and barring entrance to His grace. I don't pretend to know when that day will come, I only know that it will. One day the danger will be greater than it has ever been in all history, disaster will be at the very doors, but the shofar will have stopped sounding. And that will be God's divine decision; by His edict the last chance to hear and to act will have been given to those who claim to be His people but have loudly and proudly paraded down new paths, the bad way. As it is ominously written:


"The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved."
(Jeremiah 8:20)

The leaves on the trees are rapidly turning brown, my friends. Summer is over, the days are growing shorter, and there is a distinct chill in the air. But toasting herself with tongues of strange fire, the Church has hedonistically heaped to herself teachers who take delight in tickling her itching ears with wondrous words she wants to hear, rather than righteously upheld those who faithfully proclaim the words she needs to hear. And so we see fable-weavers and fantasy-mongers without number, gift-of-the-gab goatherds galore. Hirelings too many to head-count! But shepherds who feed the sheep rather than their own bellies? As hard to find as a hen's tooth or a hatching dinosaur egg. 

Congregations everywhere are spellbound by celebrity status leechers pretending to be preachers, with "another Jesus... another spirit... another gospel!" (2 Corinthians 11:4). The only thing that gets a favourable REception is DEception. The Church just can't get enough of it! She simply far prefers fabrication to fact, illusion to reality. But be it known without a shadow of doubt that there will be a lead-heavy price to be paid for such full-on folly.

Let me here present a vitally important truth. The word of God is never given in vain, but with a very definite purpose and certainty of outcome; as it is indelibly written:


"So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: 
it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, 
and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
(Isaiah 55:11)

With this very firmly in mind, let's turn to another Scripture, another promise which will inevitably and frighteningly be fulfilled:


"And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
(2 Thessalonians 2:11-12)

Who, we must ask, is the "them" referred to here? Who are the recipients of this "strong delusion" that God Himself sends? The context of 2 Thessalonians 2 is Paul reassuring those believers that they couldn't have missed the Rapture, because neither the Falling Away nor the coming of Antichrist - which follows hard on its heels - had yet occurred. As we are told:


"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition."
(2 Thessalonians 2:3)

What is the Falling Away? It is so translated from the Greek "apostasia" - meaning defection, departure, revolt, forsaking, apostasy. Note well that Antichrist follows in the wake of the Falling Away; the inherent implication is that it is of significant assistance to him in his coming to power when he does! The Falling Away/Apostasy is the outworking of what is called in this chapter "the mystery of iniquity" and elsewhere referenced as "the spirit of antichrist," and can only pertain to those people who would claim to follow the Way but have markedly departed from it to follow a very different path, one paved with deceit, mapped out by men, and signposted with Satanic signs and lying wonders. It is these religious renegades to whom the "strong delusion" is sent by God. 

Many are the infinite attributes of our Creator. But we need to mark well that patience is not one of them. It is emphatically NOT infinite! Yes, He is long-suffering. Yes, He tries time and time again to bring people to their senses. But it IS a FINITE number of attempts. As He warned way back in Genesis:


"And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man."
(Genesis 6:3)

The sands of His patient striving are fast streaming through the glass. At some point, and maybe much sooner than we might think, the final grain will drop through and be gone. The last chance to heed will have passed into history, and the "strong delusion" will descend in its stead. Then...

those who refused to return to the old paths from their new ones, 
those who re-wrote the Word of God into the text of men, 
those who deserted sobriety for spiritual drunkenness, 
those who held light to be darkness and darkness to be light, 
those who exchanged exhortation for entertainment,
those who applauded profitless prophets and self-appointed apostles, 
those who boasted that flesh would set up the Kingdom while Jesus just looked on, 
those who used and abused the glorious Gospel to feed their greed, 
those who fashioned Almighty God into the image of mortal man, 
those who stole His glory for their own ego's gratification, 
those who swindled the unsaved by giving them fiction in place of fact,
those who in countless ways contorted Christianity and twisted the Truth,
those who laughed and not wept as the world around them crashed and burned,
those who claimed apostasy to be anointing and revelry to be revival,
those who devoured the doctrines of demons and thought them so sweet, 
those who said "Talk to the hand!" and refused to repent... 

... will be given over by God to the lies and the deceptions that they lusted for. He will effectively lock them into the dark strongroom of delusion, and throw away the key. There will be no way out. No parole. No release. The "strong delusion" will have descended, and will not depart. God will have granted them the increase of that which they would not desist from planting and watering. They rejected the Light, and now the Light will have rejected them.


"And they have turned unto me the back, and not the face: 
though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, 
yet they have not hearkened to receive instruction. 
But they set their abominations in the house, 
which is called by my name, to defile it."
(Jeremiah 32:33-34)

"Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?
and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: 
depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
(Matthew 7:22-23)

INDEPENDENT BIBLE STUDY MEETINGS IN LLANDUDNO, CONWY.

"Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, 
a worker who does not need to be ashamed, 
rightly dividing the word of truth."
(2 Timothy 2:15)


It has been my great pleasure to have come into contact recently with a Christian brother in North Wales, similarly concerned with the terrible state of the contemporary Church. To be pro-active about the problem of finding genuine fellowship with an uncompromising commitment to the Word of Truth, Ed Barkhuizen has set up a Bible Study group in Llandudno. 

Here are the details:

BIBLE STUDY IN LLANDUDNO, NORTH WALES: Are you struggling to find a Spirit-led, Bible-only based church that obeys 1 Corinthians 14:26? So are we - evangelical Christians meeting every Thursday evening for sound teaching, fellowship and refreshments. Come and be fed. At the Trinity Centre, Trinity Ave., Llandudno LL30 2TQ. Various topics covered. Plus free notes. Phone Ed at 07927 076710 or email eldo@arroweditorial.com for more info.

They would be delighted and much encouraged to hear from anyone who would be interested in going along!



ANY MORE FOR ANY MORE...  ANYWHERE ELSE?

Has anyone established a similar oasis in the spiritual wilderness of Wales, and would like to welcome more weary and parched homeless travellers? Or is anyone perhaps thinking of initiating such a venture in their own neck of the woods, and would like to float the idea? Please do get in touch with me - Rob Thomas - at watchman4wales@yahoo.co.uk and I'll look to put something up on the blog, where a little notice like the one above might just catch the eye of my readers. It would be my privilege to be of any small service in acting as a conduit for bringing disengaged members of the Remnant Body together!


"For where two or three are gathered together in My name, 
I am there in the midst of them."
(Matthew 18:20)

WHAT IS MUCH - OR MAYBE EVEN MOST - OF THE PROFESSING CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST TODAY, IF NOT... A TRAIN WRECK?


"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; 
but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, 
having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears 
from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."
(2 Timothy 4:3-4)



What is much of the Church today, my friends, if not...

                        A

                          Truth-
                            Rejecting,
                             Apostasy-
                              Inducing,
                               Narcissistic,

                                 Wolf-
                                  Rearing,
                                   Ecumenical
                                    Counterfeit
                                     Kingdom?

'THE ROCK' - A PARABLE OF APOSTASY.

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart 
from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils."
(1 Timothy 4:1)


"Pedal to the metal, driver! Let's get this church going!"


THE ROCK

(I took a pencil and I wrote
These lines that you now read,
A small sad ode I hope you'll note
If such might be your need!)

"Let's shift our church!" the leaders said,
"This Rock feels far too rough!
Let's build it on the beach instead - 
We think that's soft enough!"

"Lead on!" the people cried with glee,
"The Rock's not to our taste -
We'll find a nice spot by the sea!
Let's go, and with all haste!"

And so that church was quickly moved
And built upon the sand;
The laws of logic soon were proved:
Its walls fast ceased to stand...

The Rock's the only place to be:
The cost to leave it's great!
The Rock's our sole security,
Too many find too late!

* * * * * * *


"Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, 
I  will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock;
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, 
and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not,
shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew,
and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it."

(The words of Jesus, as recorded in Matthew 7:24-27)

"APOSTOLIC PROPHET TO THE NATIONS" DR. SHARON STONE IN EBBW VALE FOR 'LOVE WALES' CONFERENCE, JUNE 22/23, 2018.

"A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, 
and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: 
and what will ye do in the end thereof?"
(Jeremiah 5:30-31)

"Should've gone to Specsavers!"


SHARON STONE, 'THE ELIJAH LIST' AND THE NEW APOSTOLIC REFORMATION

Sharon Stone is coming to Ebbw Vale. No, not the Hollywood "A-Lister" but rather the Counterfeit Kingdom "Elijah-Lister." For anyone unfamiliar with The Elijah List, I should perhaps here explain that it is, in a nutshell, "a non-denominational Christian prophetic website created by Steve Shultz in 1997 with 135,000 subscribers as of August 2012." (Wiki); it has been most aptly described by Sandy Simpson of The Apologetics Co-ordination Team as "the biggest distributor of false prophecies in cyberspace." (See: www.deceptioninthechurch.com/elijahlist.html)

The Elijah List is an extremely influential organ of the hyper-Charismatic "Apostolic-Prophetic" movement, which vigorously promotes the seriously erroneous concept that God is restoring the offices of Apostle and Prophet to the Church, as the highest tiers of Church governance in the Fivefold Ministry, as they interpret Ephesians 4:11-13. It is the underlying essential ethos of the New Apostolic Reformation, which is spearheading a deadly deception which is seducing many thousands into following a path which takes them away from Biblical Truth and into the farthest reaches of apostasy.

Berkshire-based Dr. Sharon Stone, whose utterances are enthusiastically hyped by The Elijah List, is such a "prophet" within the New Apostolic Reformation, which to all intents and purposes is simply the contemporary expression of what has over the years been variously known as Dominionism/Kingdom Now/Joel's Army/Manifested Sons of God/Latter Rain, and is intimately connected to the Charismatic Renewal/Third Wave of the Holy Spirit/Signs and Wonders movement. Doctrine is downplayed, experience is elevated, extra-Biblical revelation is unquestioned, and what seals the deal as far as its unyielding unsoundness is concerned is that Biblical eschatology has been dismissed. These modern-day, self-proclaimed "Apostles and Prophets" have dared to re-write the inerrant Word of God concerning the End-Times in favour of the fleshly fable that is Dominionism. 

Back in 1948, the "Latter Rain Revival" kicked off in Canada, its adherents teaching an entirely different eschatology to that which the Bible presents. Restoring, as they saw it, the Fivefold Ministry offices, the Church under the headship of the Apostles and Prophets would be militant and victorious. Central to this worldview was the belief in "the manifested sons of God," aka "Joel's Army," i.e. believers - in reality DISbelievers - who would come into the full stature of Jesus, being as He was in His Incarnation, and themselves confronting Antichrist and establishing the Kingdom on Earth ahead of Christ's return. It is this 70-year-old delusion, once quite correctly held to be heretical, which has now re-surfaced in the professing Church under the banner of the New Apostolic Reformation. A disease long in remission, this most terrible spiritual cancer has returned with greater malignancy than ever, and is very rapidly spreading unchecked through the entire Body.



The NAR believes that it has a mandate to take over all aspects of human endeavour on the planet, thereby ushering in the Kingdom on Earth PRIOR to the return of Jesus Christ. This is trumpeted as "reclaiming the seven mountains," a process which in their completely unorthodox, Revelation-rejecting worldview, will mean that things will get better and better and lighter and lighter, rather than worse and worse and darker and darker as the Scriptures tell us in no uncertain terms will actually be the case! The NAR sees the world as coming under their complete control, each of "the seven mountains" being successfully scaled. Business, government, family, religion, media, education and entertainment will be taken over and come under the headship of these supposedly restored Apostles and Prophets. 

The stark reality of the matter is that the Church has no such mandate. Our brief is simply to be salt and light and rescue brands from the burning through the solid sharing of the Gospel. It is the King Himself who establishes the Kingdom on Earth; He is no mere passive spectator taking a back seat while human effort wins the day. Such a notion is as preposterous as it is perverse, and plays straight into the hands of the Antichrist and his agenda for domination of the Earth. The NAR is a powerful part of the great Falling Away which precedes the emergence of the Man of Sin, hailing its apostasy as anointing and its revolt against End-Times Truth as revival. The Lord Himself is most certainly not expecting to return to a Gospel-loving world that has enthusiastically embraced Him. Quite the reverse in fact! As He very ominously stated:


"When the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?"
(Luke 18:8)



SHARON STONE AND ACPE: A FALSE PROPHET AMONG FALSE PROPHETS

One notable manifestation of the NAR is ACPE, the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders. The late C. Peter Wagner, regarded and revered as the Presiding Apostle of the New Apostolic Reformation was unsurprisingly a key member. We need to note well that "Apostolic Prophet to the nations" Dr. Sharon Stone and her husband Greg Black are members of this elite group, alongside a whole host of Dominionist deceivers such as Bill Hamon, Chuck Pierce, Dutch Sheets, Tommy Tenney, Lou Engle, James Goll, the aforementioned Steve Shultz, and Cindy Jacobs who chairs its annual get-together. Something I have previously written about ACPE I feel is really important to repeat here. Friends, please consider very carefully what Cindy Jacobs revealed on one of her 'God Knows' TV programmes about the ACPE summit:


"Yes, in fact, you know... as I chair the Prophetic Round Table, every year I go back and I will pull out the prophecy from the year before, because if we're prophets, then we need to look and see IF WE GOT IT RIGHT; IF WE DID NOT GET IT RIGHT, WE NEED TO GO BACK AND CORRECT IT."

SAY WHAT???!!! "IF WE DID NOT GET IT RIGHT, WE NEED TO GO BACK AND CORRECT IT???!!!" THE BIBLICAL TEST OF A TRUE PROPHET OF GOD IS TO GET IT RIGHT. EVERY TIME. 100% RIGHT.

"When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him."
(Deuteronomy 18:22)


OUT OF HER OWN MOUTH, CINDY JACOBS INADVERTENTLY HAS CONFESSED THAT SHE AND THE WHOLE APOSTOLIC COUNCIL ARE FALSE PROPHETS! A TRUE PROPHET COULD NOT HAVE GOT IT WRONG IN THE FIRST PLACE, NEVER MIND LOOK TO "CORRECT" A PROPHECY WHICH WAS LATER SHOWN TO BE FALSE!


"Oops! Slipped up a bit there. Hope no-one noticed!"



SHARON STONE AND 5-STAR "JOEL'S ARMY" GENERAL, BILL HAMON

ACPE associate Bishop Bill Hamon is the founder of the Dominionist organization called Christian International Ministries, the UK/Europe wing of which was established and is led by - well, what d'ya know! - Sharon Stone. Given this very close and comfortable collusion, it should come as no surprise that she cites Bill Hamon as being her father in the Lord, as well as a 5-star general and the father of modern-day prophets. (Ref. Facebook entry for Sept. 30 2017, and https://youtu.be/giYSozoswHA). The Joel's Army/Manifested Sons of God beliefs of Bill Hamon are all too evident in the following quotes, in which the letters R-T are an abbreviation for Resurrection/Translation:


"The positive purpose of the R-T is to enable the army of the Lord to finalize the war against all evil. The army of the Lord will progress on in the war until they have accomplished all they can in their limited mortal bodies. The R-T is for the purpose of immortalizing their bodies. This will remove all the earthly limitations, thereby enabling the saints unlimited abilities. They will be able to travel in all space realms of the heavenlies the same as Jesus and the angels do now. They can move in and out of all dimensions of the natural and spiritual realms as Jesus did in His resurrected flesh-and-bone body."

"God's great end-time army is being prepared to execute God's written Judgments with Christ's victory and divine judgment decrees that have already been established in heaven. The time is set when they will be administered and executed on earth through God's saintly army. All that is destined and needed will be activated during God's restorational Army of the Lord movement..."
('Apostles, Prophets and the Coming Moves of God' - Bill Hamon)

It will be clearly seen here that in Hamon's worldview, the Church's purpose is not so much to lovingly preach the Gospel, as to militantly wage war against evil, in which she will be ultimately successful consequent to this Restorationist army becoming translated into immortal bodies with all the unlimited abilities of the Lord Himself. It is this Army of the Lord Movement, aka the New Apostolic Reformation, which having itself defeated evil will have the authority to judge and to punish perceived evil-doers, presumably meaning anyone who will not bow to the assumed lordship of the NAR's Apostles and Prophets. (This will of course include born-again believers who question their control, who will be branded as evil, Spirit-resisting rebels, to be similarly warred against and overcome).

Here are a couple more quotes from Hamon's books to underline this vital point about the delusional, Scripture-ditching "Manifested Sons of God" heresy that he teaches, with Christ's incredible impotency to effect His Second Coming until the Apostles and Prophets (like Hamon and Stone) have first "matured" the Church and won the Kingdom for Him:


"At that time the sons of God will be fully manifested on the earth. Widespread spiritual warfare will result with the Sons of God doing battle with Satan and company, the non-Christian nations of this world will also be defeated. Once the earth has been subdued, Jesus will come back to earth and be given the Kingdom that has been won for Him by this "manchild company." The Manifested Sons of God doctrine teaches that these sons will be equal to Jesus Christ: immortal, sinless, perfected sons who have partaken of the divine nature. They will have every right to be called gods and will be called gods."
('Prophets and the Prophetic Movement' - Bill Hamon)

"Christ CANNOT return until His ascension gift ministries 
have brought the church into full manhood." 
('Prophets and Personal Prophecy' - Bill Hamon; my capitalization for emphasis)

GIVEN THE CLOSENESS OF THEIR LONG FRIENDSHIP AND PARTNERSHIP, IT WILL SURELY BE QUITE OBVIOUS THAT BILL HAMON'S WORLDVIEW IS ALSO SHARON STONE'S. AS THE WORD SAYS, "CAN TWO WALK TOGETHER, EXCEPT THEY BE AGREED?" (Amos 3:3)


CONCLUSION

It was five years ago this month, back in May 2013, that the very first article appeared on this site. Five years of careful observation, research and analysis have served to convince me beyond the shadow of a doubt that there is both an unswerving ambition and a very active agenda for revival in Wales. But I regret that I have to say that this determined push for "revival" is not birthed of the Holy Spirit, but rather is of a deeply Satanic nature. Capitalizing on Welsh (and many other) Christians' desire to see a new 1904/1905-style move of God, the Enemy has an ongoing subtle (and sometimes not so subtle!) strategy to engineer a counterfeit revival here, a move which will be hailed as Heaven-sent but in fact comes courtesy of Hell. Wales would be the epicentre of a major spiritual seismic disturbance, the tremors of which would be felt globally.

This coming Conference at Love Wales' new Mission Centre at the Festival Church in Ebbw Vale is seriously bad news for Wales, in progressing the Dominionist agenda here. I'd like to think that this group was just being ignorantly undiscerning in their choice of keynote speaker; however, when the following blurb about their guest openly appears on their website, it would seem that they are wilfully NAR complicit:


"As a passionate apostolic, prophetic minister she is being used to gather, equip and mobilize many to develop new Kingdom Paradigms and a Supernatural Lifestyle."

In any event, Marilyn Harry and her 'Love Wales' mission team have bought heavily into the bogus, cwtched up to the counterfeit, allied themselves with apostasy, and in doing so are answerable before God. May their eyes be opened to such a lamentable betrayal of the Faith once and for all time delivered; Wales is in desperate need of undiluted Truth, not Dominionist "new Kingdom Paradigms" delusion! The self-proclaimed Apostles and Prophets of the New Apostolic Reformation are in the business of relentlessly re-defining what it means to be a Christian, and denying and shamelessly re-writing what the Bible expressly teaches concerning the End-Times.

IN THEIR BRAZEN TEACHING AGAINST BIBLICAL ESCHATOLOGICAL PROPHECY, THESE NAR "PROPHETS" DETERMINEDLY CONTRADICT THE WORD OF GOD, SOMETHING WHICH NO TRUE PROPHET WOULD - OR INDEED COULD - EVER DO!

Finally, friends, on this most serious note let us diligently and most urgently remember what the Book of Revelation warns concerning those who would erase its Spirit-breathed words:


"And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, 
God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, 
and from the things which are written in this book."
(Revelation 22:19)
