THE CORRUPT TREE, ITS EVIL FRUIT, AND THE SOON COMING AXE - A WARNING FROM GOD'S WORD FOR FALSE LEADERS AND THEIR FOLLOWERS AFTER THE 'BLESS WALES' CONFERENCE!

"And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: 
therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, 
and cast into the fire." 
(Matthew 3:10)


"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)

"For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached,
or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received,
or another gospel, which ye have not accepted,
ye might well bear with him."
(2 Corinthians 11:4)

"I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you 
into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; 
but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you 
than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
As we said before, so say I now again, 
If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, 
let him be accursed.
For do I now persuade men, or God?
or do I seek to please men?
for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ."
(Galatians 1:6-10)

"Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? 
nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: 
therefore they shall fall among them that fall: 
at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.
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 6:15-19)

"Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; 
but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, 
neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, 
and cast into the fire."
(Matthew 7:17-19)

THE BLESS WALES CONFERENCE, BRANGWYN HALL, SWANSEA, 27-29 MAY, 2019 - THE BIBLE COLLEGE OF WALES AND THE NAR.

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."
(2 Corinthians 11:13-15)


Heidi Baker at Bethel, Redding - see first video below.

Counterfeit Christians. Illusionists and impostors. Deceivers on an industrial scale. Wool-coated wolves. False apostles and profitless prophets. Their agenda is quite simply world domination! They are by definition Dominionists, and they intend to (supposedly) bring in the Kingdom by putting everything under THEIR feet. By any and every means at their disposal. They are to climb and conquer what they see as the seven mountains of all human endeavour and expression on the planet. They are the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR for short). And the spirit that drives them to win the world is the seductive and seditious spirit of antichrist, blasphemously masquerading as the Holy Spirit of God. And I'm very sorry indeed to have to warn that this Pit-spawned movement has Wales in its sights...

When the Cornerstone Community Church of Singapore purchased and re-opened the Bible College of Wales in Swansea under their headship, it signalled the creation of a significant springboard for the launching of hyper-Charismatic and Dominionist deception in Wales (and the West at large via their students), of a kind they had long been embracing and promoting in the Far East. 

After having NAR frontmen Dutch Sheets and Lou Engle to headline the celebrations of the reopening of Derwen Fawr back in 2015, the now well-established and well-compromised College is poised to launch a major assault on Biblical Christianity here, with the staging of a 3-day extravaganza termed 'The Bless Wales Conference' at the Brangwyn Hall in Swansea, 27-29 May. This is in reality Orwellian double-speak for 'Curse Wales,' as the "Christianity" to be presented there has nothing whatsoever to do with the Faith once delivered unto the saints, and everything to do with the "strong delusion" that in the Last Days would overtake and characterize those who have no love for the Truth. 

There are three headline acts booked for the show - I use these words very deliberately - which sees the most regrettable return of Dutch Sheets to Wales' second city; he will share the spotlight with fellow NARpostle Sam Matthews and an extremely dangerous NAR she-wolf by the name of Heidi Baker. It is this Baker of much leavened bread that I wish to focus upon here, by recommending that anyone who is going, or thinking of going, or maybe knows someone seduced by this coming CON-ference, carefully and prayerfully view the videos that have been embedded below. If you can then come away thinking that this woman is truly operating in the Holy Spirit, and you will still attend or encourage others to support this event, then I can only say that there is something seriously amiss with your own understanding and discernment of spiritual matters. Keep safe, my friends, and keep well away!

IMPORTANT UP-DATE, 16 MAY 2019:
I'm very pleased to report that having now cancelled her imminent UK tour, Heidi Baker will accordingly not be putting in an appearance at the 'Bless Wales Conference' in Swansea. Sadly, what is very much on the down side to this excellent news is that the conference organizers have announced that Ben Fitzgerald will take her place. What is extremely important to note is that Mr. Fitzgerald was a pastor at Bethel Redding for several years before they sent him to Germany as the prime mover of 'Awakening Europe.' So although there is a change of face at the conference, there is absolutely no change in the antichrist agenda.

HEALING ROOMS ENGLAND AND WALES 2019 CONFERENCE ON 12th/13th APRIL - CAL PIERCE, BETHEL REDDING AND THE NAR.

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God."
(1 John 4:1)




ALL ROADS LEAD TO REDDING

On 12th/13th April, Healing Rooms England and Wales will be holding their 2019 Conference in Congleton, Cheshire, reporting that "We are excited to have Carrie Lloyd, from Bethel Church, Redding, California, as our speaker for this conference." Their blurb further informs us that Ms. Lloyd studied at the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, has worked closely with Bethel's Senior Leader, Bill Johnson, and currently coaches pastors from the Bethel Leaders Network across the USA for Global Legacy, which is "Bethel Church's relational network of revival leaders" as it bills itself. We might note that Paul Manwaring, founder of Global Legacy and a member of the Senior Leadership Team at Bethel before returning to his native UK in 2016 to represent their interests in Europe, was the speaker at the 2018 conference, when a team from Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry also participated.

While Ms. Lloyd is the main conference speaker, their Friday Night speaker is one Pete Carter, who leads Eastgate Church in Kent, which very revealingly has this to say of itself:


"Since 2007 we have had a close relationship with Bethel Church in Redding, California, and this has developed to the point where we are now one of the UK hubs for Global Legacy."

Given this revelation, it shouldn't raise any eyebrows to find that Carter's church has also since 2008 run the Eastgate School of Spiritual Life, unsurprisingly declared to be inspired by Bethel's similar School (of Supernatural Ministry) - which as noted Ms. Lloyd attended. Significantly, Eastgate "are also exploring ways for Bethel students and graduates to be connected when they return to the UK." (Source as above). The unBiblical "inner healing" of Bethel Sozo is also practiced at Eastgate's Transformation Centre, and we might also well note that its Healing Centre holds to the heresy that physical healing was in the Atonement, a false hyper-Charismatic teaching also promoted as it happens by Cal Pierce, the founder of the Spokane-based International Association of Healing Rooms.


For more on Bethel Sozo, please see:   http://watchman4wales.blogspot.com/search/label/Bethel%20Sozo


For any discerning Christian, all this information highlighting the conference speakers' backgrounds, allegiances, influences and agendas should immediately set alarm bells ringing very loudly in their spirit! Bill and wife Beni Johnson's Bethel Redding is as synonymous with apostasy as Chernobyl is with nuclear disaster - and the fallout of both can be properly pronounced as being equally toxic, the one in the spiritual realm and the other in the natural! I've said it before and I'll say it again concerning the Johnsons and their seat of power:

This has to be one of the unsafest "Christian" couples on the planet, their "Christianity" having all the authenticity of a paste diamond, with Bethel having far more in common with sorcery and New Age mystical spirituality than with Biblical Christianity. From gold dust to glory clouds, from falling feathers to fire tunnels, from floating orbs to a born-again "Jesus," from waking up sleeping angels to grave-sucking necromancy, absolutely anything goes at Bethel under the Johnsons' (mis)leadership.



CAL PIERCE AND SPOKANE SPOOKERY

Healing Rooms England and Wales (there are currently two such affiliated Rooms here in Wales, in Cardiff and Cardigan) is an integral part of the International Association of Healing Rooms (IAHR), which is based in Spokane, Washington State, USA. As noted above, it was founded by Cal Pierce, who originates from - yes, you've guessed it - Redding, California! And yes, he just happens to have been an elder and director of Bethel before moving to Spokane in 1997.

Visiting the grave of Spokane-based faith healer John G. Lake many times (very reminiscent of Benny Hinn's necromantic visits to the grave of Kathryn Kuhlman), these pilgrimages culminated on February 28, 1999, when as he testifies on his website, "I started a 40 day fast. I went to Lake's grave site to pray when I heard God say, 'There is a time to pray, and a time to move.' There was no doubt that God wanted us to re-dig the generational wells of healing in Spokane." On July 22 that same year, John G. Lake's Healing Rooms were re-opened on the same site, some 80 years after their doors had been closed by him.

No less than five very worrying things we might note here! 1) Pierce's veneration of a man, and his (actually highly suspect) ministry. 2) His belief in the spiritual efficacy of that man's burial site. 3) His statement that he heard God speak, though there is no confirmatory witness to this. 4) His belief in God's attachment to particular geographical locations to manifest His grace. 5) His conviction that "generational wells" in such places could and should be re-dug.

Let us carefully observe that, 1) We are to revere Christ alone, not men. 2) Only decaying flesh and bones are to be found in graves, and no residue whatsoever of a person's spirit or their (supposed) "anointing" lingers on. 3) The claim of one man is Scripturally invalid, for it is at the mouth of two or three witnesses that a matter is established. (Ref. Deuteronomy 19:15, Matthew 18:16). 4) God is omnipresent, and can and does manifest His grace in absolutely anywhere of his choosing. 5) "Re-digging" is looking backwards to what has been, when we are meant to be focused on what is ahead, not on what is behind: God designed us with our eyes in the front of our heads, not the back, for very good reason!

So, what of this "generational well" that Pierce was so motivated to wield his spiritual shovel to excavate anew? Who was his late great hero John G. Lake exactly, and how did he come to set up as a faith healer in the first place? These are questions of vital relevance in ascertaining if the "well" at Spokane contained pure or polluted water.




JOHN G. LAKE, JOHN ALEXANDER DOWIE, AND FAITH HEALING FALSEHOOD

It is critically important to emphasize that just as Lake was central to Pierce's vision, so was the Scottish-born faith healer John Alexander Dowie central to Lake's. So let's first take a little look at said Dowie. Who was he? Well, in a nutshell, a very shady character indeed! The Benny Hinn of his time, one might say, with quite some justification!

Always on the move, even from continent to continent, scandal and legal action followed Dowie wherever he went. He'd arrived in America in 1888 after his church in Australia burned down in suspicious circumstances, allowing him to pay off heavy debts. Setting himself up as a faith healer in San Francisco, his International Divine Healing Association operated on the basis of members tithing and thus making themselves eligible to request a healing from him. Income derived in this way was supplemented through buying and selling bankrupt companies' securities, this dodgy dealing resulting in him being successfully sued by women he'd defrauded. After this unsavoury episode, he headquartered himself in Chicago, his Healing Association morphing into his Christian Catholic Church, later re-branded as the Christian Catholic Apostolic Church.

His claims were as great as they were questionable; he was adept at "curing" psychosomatic illnesses and staging dramatic healings, notably when placing himself strategically adjacent to the World Fair of 1893. Just like Hinn and his ilk today, his "ministry" was a magnet drawing many gullible followers (and their wallets), so much so that in 1900 he was able to found a city to the north of Chicago which he named Zion, where he personally owned absolutely all the residents' houses and the businesses, which significantly included the bank! All residents tithed, with the monies going into this bank; amassing a vast fortune, Dowie lived a life of unashamed and unrestrained luxury. "The Prosperity Gospel" may be older than we think!

Dowie, an antecedent of the contemporary New Apostolic Reformation's pirate crew , believed in the "restoration" of apostolic governance to the Church, and actually proclaimed himself to be Elijah, preparing the way for the return of the Lord, and even sported attire in keeping with this most disturbing of delusions, as illustrated below.


Dowie as "Elijah"- Portrait of a false prophet!

Jerusalem in Israel - and reality, for that matter - had no place in Dowie's warped eschatology. His Zion in Illinois was destined to be the seat of Messianic rule after the Second Coming, "the starting point of the restoration, the city from which God would personally direct the affairs of his kingdom."

Dowie obviously had a far greater belief in himself and his wild pronouncements than in the Word of God! Having suffered a stroke in 1905, he died two years later, having been deposed from his Zion throne by his Number Two, with some millions of dollars apparently being unaccounted for!
(Source, citing primary references: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Alexander_Dowie)

So much, then, for Lake's hollow hero. Was Lake himself any sounder?

When Ken Copeland and others of the Word of Faith wolf-pack proclaim that we are "little gods," where do you suppose that crass claim originated? The answer is John G. Lake. The deification of man, man as an incarnation of God, man being equal to God... where do you think such lies were dreamed up? In the imagination of said Ken Copeland? Actually, it was in the mind of John G. Lake. Who taught that the Church would establish the Kingdom on earth PRIOR to Christ's return? C. Peter Wagner? Yes - but who taught it before he did? John G. Lake. Who believes that you can communicate with the dead? Any medium you care to mention? Yes, but a man who also believed this was John G. Lake. Who claimed experience of astral travel? NAR prophetess Kathie Walters, when she rode pillion through the sky on Jesus's golden motorbike? Yes - but a man who also claimed out-of-body sky travel was John G. Lake. 

Who believed that a newspaper could be filled with the Holy Spirit and sent to effect an impartation? John G. Lake. Who advertised the visit of an Arab healer to his church, that in the event turned out to be... a costumed John G. Lake? Who got arrested for impersonating a Police officer? John G. Lake. Who got arrested, charged, and then settled out of court for defrauding folks in his congregation? John G. Lake. Who was arrested and fined after someone he failed to heal consequently died through neglect? You've guessed it - John G. Lake.

The catalogue of his disturbing proclivities and proclamations, his unsubstantiated grandiose claims and cavalier lawlessness goes on and on. Sadly, it has to be concluded that John G. Lake was every bit as unsound in doctrine, and every bit as suspect in moral rectitude, as the man he once studied healing under at Zion, IIIinois: John Alexander Dowie. So now, we must ask, is Cal Pierce any sounder?



HEALING ROOMS: A NEW APOSTOLIC REFORMATION POWERHOUSE

One of the most insidious movements in what passes for the Church today is the New Apostolic Reformation. A real giveaway as to the corrosive NAR credentials of Cal Pierce's operation is its 'Ministry Links' grouping, listing such Dominionist front-runners as Kris Vallotton, Chuck Pierce, Cindy Jacobs, Bobby Conners, Jim Goll, Patricia King and Randy Clark. Naturally, Bethel itself is a prominent link; of a truth, the (bad) apple does not fall far from the tree.

Furthermore, the IAHR runs a 'Global Network' that an individual or organization can join, for a fee naturally. Throwing in your lot with this "Apostolic and Prophetic (i.e. NAR) Network" will apparently empower you with "everything you need to become proficient in the supernatural realms of God in every sphere of life." Wow! (Can't see anything about a money back guarantee, though!) Registering your organization allows you to download the Healing Rooms School of Transformation package - usually a mere $300 - which will include an education on "giving and receiving encouragement through participation to the seven major institutions that influence society (a.k.a. the Seven Mountains of Society)." Anyone who's researched the New Apostolic Reformation will know that this concept of the Seven Mountains is a central plank of the Dominionists' worldview, and their strategy for complete societal takeover and the establishment of the Kingdom by the "Church" PRIOR to Christ's return. Teachers of this school? Well, they include Pierce of course, Bill Johnson of course, Kris Vallotton of course... 
(Source: https://www.healingroomsglobal.com/)

Before leaving the subject of the IAHR Global Network, it's more than relevant to note that when an individual registers and pays the full year's subscription up front, not only will they get 30% off the monthly rate but they can then claim a free copy of 'The Passion Translation.' Note well, this is not a translation, but a re-writing of the Word conducted by the NAR's Brian Simmons, who in this mauling of the original text promotes the tenets of Dominionism. Simmons actually claims that Jesus literally visited him in 2009 and commissioned him to pen this new translation-that-isn't of the Bible. Breathing on him, Jesus supposedly thereby gave him "the spirit of revelation" and he felt "downloads" coming instantly. 

Simmons has also related an out-of-body experience (just as Lake did), in which he was taken to a library in Heaven and told he could take any two books he fancied. After selecting the two books to take home with him - it would be really interesting to see these books from the 'Library of Heaven' but I don't think anybody has! - he saw a third volume he wanted. Its title was 'John 22' - very intriguing, as the Gospel of John has only 21 chapters! This book he was not allowed to take - Simmons had actually thought of stealing it! - as Jesus told him that he wasn't ready for it yet, but promised to one day bring him back and give it to him. Let's say it as it is. The author of 'The Passion Translation' is either an imaginative liar or, like Cal Pierce and the Energy Angel, the tale of which follows in the next section, just maybe he has been communing with unclean spirits?

If anyone should in any way doubt Cal Pierce's own thoroughly Dominionist, NAR mindset, we only have to check out what he wrote on 28 February 2017, in an article entitled 'The New Church Wineskin' for proof positive of this:

"For the manifold Wisdom of God to be made known to the rulers of this age in heavenly places, according to Ephesians 3:9-13, we will have to see the Church as five-fold. The old wineskin sees the Church as a congregation of people meeting on Sunday with a pastor leading. The Church has a Pastor, but also must include Apostles, Prophets, Teachers and Evangelists. It cannot reach a measure of stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ if it is not five-fold. (Ephesians 4:11-13)

It is the responsibility of Apostles and Prophets to lay the foundation of the five-fold into the church with Jesus as the cornerstone. The household of God cannot be built into its full stature without this. With the prophetic we hear and with the apostolic we do. The government of God must be set in by people who can hear what God is saying to the Church and then bring it about. In 1 Corinthians 12:28 it tells us God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then gifts of healing, helps, administrations and various kinds of tongues. God appoints apostles and prophets in the Church to lay a Kingdom foundation for the Church to build upon. When Apostles and prophets take their place in the Church, they will become a benefit to pastors, until then they are looked at as a threat.

The new wineskin Church will embrace apostles and prophets and then fulfill God's mandate to establish His Kingdom on earth and in cities, as it is in Heaven."

Pierce here presents an undiluted, (im)pure NAR Dominionist manifesto if ever there was one! In reality, of course, these 21st century "apostles and prophets" are not God-appointed at all, but self-appointed and mutually back-scratching members of a ruling class, an elite band who consider that they hear what lesser Christians do not. (Despite us all having equal access to the Spirit and complete equality in Christ!) If perceived as a threat, then that is quite correctly discerned, for a great threat to the Faith once delivered these deluded people most certainly are! 

Friends, the foundation has already been long laid down by Christ Himself, and His true Apostles who were all eyewitnesses of His resurrection. And moreover, His Kingdom is established by no human agency, but by Him alone! Cal Pierce recently wrote: 


"New things must come from the Lord that will give us the power 
to destroy the work of the enemy." 

How ironic, when he himself is furthering the Enemy's agenda! And how little is his understanding, that he thinks flesh and blood will triumph over Satan, when that victory is Christ's and His exclusively!




CAL PIERCE, THE ENERGY ANGEL AND THE WATER CAR

To illustrate the delusional world of Cal Pierce, we need look no further than his account of a personal angelic visitation in chapter 9 of the book, 'The Physics of Heaven' (which just happens to include contributions from Bill and Beni Johnson, with a foreword by Kris Vallotton - the 3 top dogs at Bethel!)

One day, at a NAR meeting, Pierce apparently looked up to see an angel standing in front of him, introducing himself as the Energy Angel, sent by God to answer his question about the energy crisis which he'd been seeking Him about. Accompanying Pierce back to his hotel room, the angel informed him that continuing to use the earth's resources would pollute the environment and those resources would all be used up; we needed instead to draw resources from above. He then announced that he would show Pierce the water car, promptly leaving and then returning with a scroll, on which was a blueprint of this water car. Informing him that he was an engineer, the angel advised Pierce that he would show him how water and light can produce energy, and Pierce would over time get more information about the water car, though in the story's conclusion Pierce contradicts himself somewhat by declaring that the angel was about to reveal how power could be produced with sound, and vehicles would literally be driven by sound, which would provide the planet's energy. 

Oh dear. Only in America, as the saying goes. Only in America, where the car is king, would the Creator show such a keen interest in the bright green future of the automobile. But while the earth's resources continue to be depleted, it looks like Pierce is sadly still awaiting the Energy Angel's revelation as to how exactly his water cars would be powered by sound; while America's motor moguls undoubtedly hold their breath, it seems that the blueprint has been put on indefinite hold. Perhaps the right sound has not yet been vibrated? Could Beni Johnson's legendary 528 hz prophetic tuning fork be of any assistance?

Only a Bible DISbelieving Dominionist would worry about the planet's resources being exhausted. God certainly has no such concerns that He needs to appoint an Energy Angel to design a water car! (And doesn't basic logic tell us that if the earth's ores are all used up, where's the metal coming from to make these cars? And what about the concrete and tarmac for the roads for them to run on?) Friends, God is to one day gloriously RE-CREATE the heavens and the earth (Ref. Isaiah 65:17, 2 Peter 3:7-13, Revelation 21:1), and we can have infinitely greater trust in His Word than Cal Pierce's fabulous utterances! We can only realistically surmise by this surreal story of his that if Pierce was indeed visited by an angel, it could only have been one of the fallen kind! As it is written, concerning such a man as this and those who would foolishly follow him:


"And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."
(2 Timothy 4:4)

And again, as one of the TRUE Apostles averred of their TRUE calling:


"For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty."
(2 Peter 1:16)




CONCLUSION

There is so, so much more that could be said; I'd urge anyone who happens upon this article to do their own research into these things, and above all test everything against Scripture, and the whole counsel of God at that.

A false spirit governs Cal Pierce's International Association of Healing Rooms, this being passed down - from impartation to impartation, via the laying on of hands - from Spokane into Healing Rooms anywhere and everywhere in the world. I'd ask of the supporters and users of Healing Rooms, do you really think that any and every healing experience must be of God? Do you not perceive that Satan can impart a counterfeit healing, to make himself as God (Ref. Isaiah 14:14) and to have people believe that the presence and working of an unclean spirit is that of the Holy Spirit, and so undermine our Faith? Of a surety, we are to test the spirits, using God-given wisdom and discernment to distinguish between that which is right and that which is wrong! Consider. Are dedicated rooms for healing anywhere referenced in Scripture? Nope. We are encouraged to pray for the sick, most certainly, but the location is completely immaterial.

There is no question that the International Association of Healing Rooms is a major organ of the New Apostolic Reformation, a twin sister of Bethel Redding and bursting with her deadly spiritual bacteria. It is at the forefront of the great End-Times Falling Away, the demolition of the Faith once delivered and its relentless replacement with an alternative "Christianity" with an utterly unBiblical eschatology. Founded on falsehood, fuelled with fantasy, and under a cloak of apparent righteousness being instrumental in bringing spiritual sickness rather than physical health, the Healing Rooms movement is a global deception that is as deep as it is dangerous! AVOID!

"There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, 
but the end thereof are the ways of death."
(Proverbs 16:25)

RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE, THE HOLY GHOST BARTENDER, AT THE WAREHOUSE CHURCH IN NEWPORT ON 13 FEBRUARY 2019.

"For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, 
but rather reprove them." 
(Ephesians 5:8-11)


"Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord." These words resonate deep in my spirit as I consider the darkness masquerading as light that is about to descend on Newport, South Wales, courtesy of Robbie and Donna Howells, the 'Word of Faith' MISleaders of The Warehouse Church (this being the recent re-branding of Newport City Church).

We who walk as children of light have a duty to declare and show what is acceptable to God, and by the same token also to declare and show what is UNacceptable to Him. And what is most definitely UNacceptable to Him is "strange fire!" Few in the contemporary Church have been as prominent in the igniting and fanning the flames of such "strange fire" as Rodney Howard-Browne, the self-proclaimed "Holy Ghost  Bartender." I wrote a synopsis of this great deceiver's background and his pivotal role in the so-called 'Toronto Blessing' in my piece warning about 'The Turning' in 2017 (see Topics list), and it will be pertinent to repeat that information here in the context of his forthcoming 'Europe Ablaze' tour, with its eight dates across the UK and Ireland including the one in Wales at The Warehouse Church.

A South African now resident in the USA, Howard-Browne was a key figure in the "holy laughter" movement; from a Word of Faith background in his homeland, he rose to prominence when invited to preach at an AOG church in Lakeland, Florida in the Spring of 1993. It was there that the "holy laughter" phenomenon broke out big-time. Notorious charlatan Oral Roberts, inventor of the "seed-faith" scam, and his son Richard went to Lakeland to check this out, and were so impressed by what was being served at "Joel's Bar" that they invited him to hold meetings at the Oral Roberts University, where the same uncontrollable laughter was experienced.

Even more significantly, while "ministering" at that hot-bed of Word of Faith theology, Kenneth "Dad" Hagin's 'Rhema Bible Training Center' near Tulsa, Oklahoma, a Vineyard pastor named Randy Clark received "the anointing" from Howard-Browne. Hearing of Clark's being tremendously touched, fellow Vineyard pastor John Arnott of the Toronto Airport church invited him to bring the drunken partying to Canada in January, 1994. He did just that, and the rest is history. Dark, dark history. 'The Toronto Blessing' as it became known went global practically overnight, and thousands of discernment-devoid people were soon rolling in the aisles and barking like dogs, laughing hysterically when they should have been weeping with grief for the huge Satanic delusion that had so incredibly infiltrated and overtaken the professing Church of Jesus Christ.


The central role of Howard-Browne in delivering what was probably the most demonic delusion ever unleashed upon the Church cannot be emphasized enough. Charismania was to run rampant across the planet, and a subjective, experiential and experimental faith rather than an objective, Bible-based and immutable Faith has been the grim accepted norm ever since, as "the anointing" like a virus mutated and multiplied and insidiously infected the Body to a pandemic degree. As Jesus declared, "An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign" - and as in His time on Earth, so in ours too!

Seeing is believing as the old saying goes, so I have posted below a few short and sharp and shocking videos of Howard-Browne in action, for the benefit of those who may not have seen anything of his shamanistic showmanship before, just for them to have a taster of what happens when he's in town - and nothing has changed about his occultic, stage hypnotist's mind manipulation techniques from the early days to the present time.
If anyone can watch these clips and not be thoroughly disturbed by what they see and hear, then the needle on their discernment meter must be registering an absolute zero! If any professing believer can observe such appalling antics and not be completely disgusted, then serious questions would be needful as to the reality of their declared faith. Could any genuinely born-again, God-fearing and Scripture-upholding Christian, being indwelt by the Holy Spirit who instructs us on righteous orderliness and sobriety, bear witness to these manifestations being of God? They are so utterly contradictory to the conduct He expects of His people as spelled out in His unchangeable Word! The likes of Howard-Browne eagerly eggs folk on to become blind drunk at "Joel's Bar," and to take unashamed delight in their iniquitous intoxication, in absolute defiance of God's clear teaching on sobriety and decorum. Consider such Scriptural admonitions as:


"Let all things be done decently and in order."
(1 Corinthians 14:40)

"Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober."
(1 Thessalonians 5:6)

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, 
walketh about, seeking whom he may devour."
(1 Peter 5:8)

Vigilance demands sobriety - a completely unclouded and properly analytical mind - which coupled to the Holy Spirit's gifting of spiritual discernment alerts you to real and present danger. Do we really want a befuddled brain to be thinking that the roaring lion is just a purring pussy-cat? Our Enemy's appetite is voracious, and Howard-Browne is nothing if not a well-practiced big-name bait to bring in his next ready-meal. The claws go out, the prey is seized, and another inebriated hyena ends up hanging on a hook in the lion's larder!

With a fanfare of trumpets and a loud beating drum, the Howard-Browne circus rolls into town, with its acrobats and clowns and fire-eaters and pawing lion roaring at the cheering crowds. The ringmaster beams at their laughs and their screams... Roll up! Roll up! It's the greatest show on Earth...



Before we conclude, it will be more than relevant to highlight another of Robbie Howells' apostate connections, namely Kenneth Copeland, whose demonic double-act with Howard-Browne features in the first video clip above. Together with fellow South Walian 'Word of Faith' adherent Alex Ashton of the Vine Christian Centre in Bridgend, Mr. Howells acts as a Trustee of Kenneth Copeland Ministries' UK/Europe operation - Charity No. 326392. (Source: The Charity Commission for England and Wales). Both are also active Officers of the Private Limited Company, Kenneth Copeland Ministries - Company No. 01722542. (Source: Companies House). Thus it can be clearly seen that they very closely collude with one of the greatest heretics on the face of the planet! If anyone doubts this assertion, I have previously compiled and published a long list of Mr. Copeland's rank heresies, which can be found here:

My friends, please keep a close guard on your mind, your emotions and your spirit! 'Hyper-Charismatic'/'Word of Faith'/'Prosperity gospel' preachers, whether they be local Laodiceans like Howells or Ashton, or international traffickers of counterfeit Christianity like Copeland or Howard-Browne, are to be as carefully avoided as any infectious disease you might come across in the natural, for a plague they most certainly are in the spiritual! 

Rodney Howard-Browne is quite simply one of Satan's most effective and efficient incendiary devices. Aided and abetted by hireling pastors like Robbie and Donna Howells, he is intent on setting the British Isles ablaze with a falsified faith which presents, for the delectation of the deluded, "another Jesus... another spirit... another gospel." (2 Corinthians 11:4). The hype for this planned conflagration is:


"There will be powerful preaching, teaching, and demonstration of the Holy Ghost. The hearts of many will be touched and changed forever by the Spirit of God." (Source: https://revival.lpages.co/europe-ablaze-2019/?fbclid=IwAR2wD8jmQ5Jmmo19qRS-3MZFdYSVBy9ivOiP1uTCvqH1sWRenecKD15JSTo)

If you go anywhere near the "strange fire" raised by this most infamous of arsonists, you will be putting yourself at huge risk of being at best badly spiritually blistered, and at worst having your heart indeed touched and changed forever - not by the Spirit of God, but by the deadly seductive spirit of antichrist!


"But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer."
(1 Peter 4:7)

KEEP SAFE! KEEP AWAY!

AN UNANSWERED EMAIL F.A.O. JACOB PRASCH AT MORIEL MINISTRIES - A VITAL QUESTION TO BE ASKED OF ALL WHO WATCH ON THE WALLS AS TO HOW WE CONDUCT OURSELVES!

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, 
goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."
(Galatians 5:22-23)

When and how does good fruit become bad?

Many of you will no doubt be aware of the unresolved high-level dispute between Jacob Prasch of Moriel Ministries and David Nathan of Bread of Life Ministries in South Africa, a white-hot controversy which has also caused other individuals and ministries to be targeted in a way that is so far removed from proper Christian conduct that it just beggars belief that such things are happening and on such a global scale.

After examining the matter most carefully, from all presenting perspectives, I was much moved to write to Jacob Prasch on 17 December 2018, a most sincere plea which has sadly elicited no response whatsoever. (A circumstance which I am given to understand is unfortunately by no means unusual when the behaviour of Mr. Prasch and the Moriel organization is being questioned).

After twice trying to get a message through on the Moriel website's own online contact facility, and each time receiving a Mail Failure notice, I then emailed directly to David Lister's email address. Mr. Lister is Jacob Prasch's "Number Two" in Moriel, and appears to act as a conduit / filter for correspondence to their organization. This time the email was sent without problem, no Failure notice occurring, therefore it was definitely received but just as definitely dismissed.

I wish here to highlight a particular paragraph in my missive to Moriel, for I consider the question I've posed there to be of great import, not just to the particular teacher my correspondence was addressed to, but to ALL who would claim to watch on the walls, whoever and wherever they might be. If honestly answered, it would reveal much about us, and the true or the false spirit in which we are actually operating. 



THE QUESTION

The question for every watchperson (myself included!) is, where do you draw the line? Where have indisputable facts perhaps strayed into the no-man's land of subjective opinion? Has good fruit maybe over-ripened and so become bad fruit? Have we let grace somehow be a casualty when fighting in the name of righteousness? When does objective analysis and warning become unhealthy obsession and witch-hunt? When do one's labours for the Lord become an unwholesome flight into folly? We are ever at risk of earnest contention for the Faith morphing into belief and trust in self rather than belief and trust in Him alone! Flesh is always waiting in the wings, ready to take centre stage given just the fraction of a chance!

We who keep watch are effectively walking a well-greased tightrope. Balance is everything, but carefully maintaining balance is a hard thing to achieve. It is only possible with the exercising of grace, evidenced in the exhibition of the fruit of the spirit. Discernment in and of itself is insufficient when walking the wire; it must be faithfully fused with grace, or else the spiritual pole we use to keep us steady will be unevenly weighted with inevitably grave consequences.

UK-based discernment ministry and the manner in which it operates has come glaringly under the spotlight. And when what is probably the biggest name in this field in this country is so disturbingly acting in the most questionable of fashions, it is concerning indeed. A long dark shadow is thrown over all who are called into such ministry. We are few enough in number as it is, and subject in every which way to the Enemy's attempts to take us out; the very last thing we need is the reckless pressing of a self-destruct button to do his work for him!

Another most lamentable knock-on effect of watchmen behaving badly, and demonstrating a completely cavalier disregard for grace and an absence of the fruit of the Spirit, is that it is effectively giving a green light to their followers to act in the selfsame manner. It's the old What's-sauce-for-the-goose-is-sauce-for-the-gander Syndrome, the kind of contagion that I've seen much too much evidence of in a Body that is terribly sick in so many ways. Grace begets grace, while absence of grace begets absence of grace - something for us all to think deeply about! As it is written:


"And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh 
with the affections and lusts. 
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 
Let us not be desirous of vain glory, 
provoking one another, envying one another."
(Galatians 5:24-26)


CONCLUSION

My hope is that something of notable value could nevertheless come out of this most grievous controversy, in that it might cause all who are called to warn of the great Falling Away to examine our own selves and our own ministry modus operandi. I speak this first to myself, that I might personally always endeavour to keep a careful check on myself, that my conduct be in keeping with what is expected of me as a declared follower of the Way. And if I should fall short, may the Lord pull me up on it, and cause me to properly reflect, with a willingness to learn and to do better. Let us all do likewise, for if we who watch are giving testament to discernment, but not to grace, then we are not in the realm of wisdom but of folly.

For anyone interested, the full text of my email to Moriel is re-produced below:

Dear Jacob!

I've listened to and valued many hours of your teachings over the years, sharing so many of your concerns about the great Falling Away. I've always held your ministry in high esteem and have the greatest respect for your learning. But I've sadly found myself becoming increasingly alarmed about your modus operandi in the last couple of years, in your presentation of what is actually personal speculation as hard fact and a most disturbing lack of grace in your interaction with others.

I am greatly perturbed by the current high-level and very public and unrighteous debacle involving yourself, David Nathan, Stewart and Deborah Menelaws, and others caught up in it all. I have diligently sought out and examined the facts of the matter, in what I believe to be a conscientious and fair-minded manner, and frankly and very disappointedly have found your allegations to be unfounded. One dear sister in the Lord whose friendship I much value has been herself targeted in this campaign you are currently waging. This being so, my spirit will no longer allow me to remain silent. Individuals and ministries have been quite wantonly damaged by your words and deeds, and it is long overdue for all this to cease.

Jacob, you are hurting not just them but your own self and ministry by behaving in such a way, a way which is alien to how Christians should be conducting themselves. It pains me to make this observation. It is heartbreaking indeed that the issues of contention were not addressed in a proper Christian manner, being instead thrust directly and devastatingly into the public eye. Being called in my own small way into discernment ministry, it grieves me personally that the integrity of such ministry will inevitably be called into question as a consequence of all this. It casts a deep shadow over all of us who try our best to keep watch on the walls.

Jacob, in the Name of all that is Right and True, can you please bring yourself to kick stubborn pride into touch and properly apologize and repent of your unseemly actions and seek reconciliation? For the sake not just of those you have injured but of all of us who together constitute the Body of Christ? And as a good witness to those outside of the Body? Is not humility, and the desire to right wrongs, the mark of a God-fearing man who wants to be at peace with his Maker, his fellows, and last but not least his own self?

I wrote this recently in answer to a correspondent, and it seems to me that it bears repeating here:

The question for every watchperson (myself included!) is, where do you draw the line? Where have indisputable facts perhaps strayed into the no-man's land of subjective opinion? Has good fruit maybe over-ripened and so become bad fruit? Have we let grace somehow be a casualty when fighting in the name of righteousness? When does objective analysis and warning become unhealthy obsession and witch-hunt? When do one's labours for the Lord become an unwholesome flight into folly? We are ever at risk of earnest contention for the Faith morphing into belief and trust in self rather than belief and trust in Him alone! Flesh is always waiting in the wings, ready to take centre stage given just the fraction of a chance!

Please don't reject this entreaty out of hand, Jacob. I know I'm just a minnow splashing in here among big fish in a troubled pond, but having boldness in the certainty that we are all equal in Christ I am moved to make this plea directly to you, in the hope and with the prayer that it will be accepted and properly considered in the same spirit in which it is made.

Most sincerely in Him,
Rob Thomas
