Voice of The Apostles: Deceiving Spirits and Demonic Transference

The Voice of The Apostles conference 2017 was held Oct. 17-20 in Lancaster, PA. This event is where top false prophets of the NAR ordain and “anoint” their disciples. The EmergentWatch documentary video is a composite of over 8 hours of video taken during the 3 day event. In this video one can witness the demonic transference from these false “apostles”, and the demonic spiritual effect this has on their followers. These effects have been compared to those seen in occultic Kundalini awakening and the uncontrollable movements known as “Kriyas”.

There are absolutely no verses in the bible that show the Holy Spirit manifesting these physical symptoms. On the contrary, there are multiple verses in the Gospels showing demons manifesting similar symptoms – being seized by evil spirits, falling to the ground and convulsing (twitching and jerking, etc.) – See Matt. 17:15+; Luke 9:42. etc.

Applicable bible verses include:

John 16:13-14 – “When He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority… He will glorify Me (Jesus)…”

1Jn. 1:5 – This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.

1Jn. 4:1 – “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

1Cor. 14:32-33 – “The spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion but of peace…

Lam. 2:14 – “Your prophets have seen for you False and deceptive visions; They have not uncovered your iniquity, To bring back your captives, But have envisioned for you false prophecies and delusions.”

Ezk. 22:25-28 – The conspiracy of her prophets in her midst is like a roaring lion tearing the prey; they have devoured people; they have taken treasure and precious things… like wolves tearing the prey, to shed blood, to destroy people, and to get dishonest gain divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD,’ when the LORD had not spoken.”

2Pet. 2:18-19 – “They speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage.”

1Tim. 4:1 – “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.”

2Thes. 2:3-11 – “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day (of The Lord) will not come unless the falling away (“Apostasia“) comes first… For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work… The coming of the lawless one (Antichrist) is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie…”

Apparently not content with adult followers, these wolves want children also.

Luke 17:2 – “Better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.”

Kairos 2017 – Offspring of The Mother of Harlots

Just in time for Halloween – The mother of all ecumenical conferences is about to take place in Kansas City, on Oct. 24-26th – in “celebration” of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation – the Kairos 2017 event.

Organized by Vatican envoy Matteo Calisi (“United in Christ“), in collusion with Mike Bickle’s IHOP and by John Arnott’s “Catch the Fire“. Their promo states: “Unity & Revival: Come & Experience this Pivotal Event in History where Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox Leaders set aside differences to reconcile 500 years of Forgiveness.”

Francis Chan Endorses the Apostate NAR Movement

In his latest departure from orthodoxy, Francis Chan declares his love – not only for IHOP’s Mike Bickle (see below) – but for the entire apostate NAR movement – referring to them as simply harmless “Charismatics”.

The following video was screen captured from the Brio TV live feed of the ATD event on Saturday 10/7/17.

Speaking at the NAR event “Awaken The Dawn” on 10/7/2017 – Chan claimed that “God just revealed” to him, while backstage, his “arrogance” and need to “repent” – And, that in his arrogance, he used to teach against charismania, but that “my theology has changed over the years”, etc.”

Chan also implies that those who discern the unbiblical issues within the NAR movement are simply “arrogant” and think they “know better.”

The list of apostate NAR speakers at the ATD event includes: Heidi Baker, Lou Engle, Shawn Bolz, Todd White, Rick Pino, Nick Hall, etc.

A Brief History of Francis Chan’s departures:

2003 – Chan Invites X-Catholic speaker Mike Gendron to speak at his church, but shuts down his Q&A fearing offending Catholics. see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jo_sVyssxqk

2010- Chan speaks @ Exponential Conference alongside emergents. See http://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/blog/?p=2856

Dallas Theological Seminary Gone Contemplative?

The ministry of EmergentWatch began as a means to alert Christians to the infiltration of false teachings coming into the churches, under the radar of most – coming into the bookstores right in their local churches. EW published a number of bookstore surveys, searching for materials by known false teachers. After being exposed, two churches surveyed slapped a copyright violation claim against two of EW’s video presentations, exposing Calvary Chapel of Downey and Rick Warren’s Saddleback church. Both videos were subsequently removed.

Two Christian Seminaries were also examined in late 2013. Fuller Theological (With predictably bad results; See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCbS3Mwo07A), and Dallas Theological. The latter returned some alarming results, as it is widely know as a bastion of conservative Christianity.

A recent article by Lighthouse Trails explains:

“Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS) has always maintained that while they teach Spiritual Formation, they only teach the “good” kind and that they are not a school that promotes contemplative spirituality. Lighthouse Trails has always challenged these suppositions. In fact, it wasn’t that long ago when Lighthouse Trails editors had some correspondence with two different DTS faculty members (one a dean) who insisted that DTS was not promoting contemplative spirituality…”

See the complete article here: http://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/blog/?p=23055

EmergentWatch did a Bookstore survey of the DTS online bookstore in November 2013, and published the results, showing hundreds of books and tapes by many known false teachers. Another survey was done on 7/21-22/2017, and shows that rather than the problem being corrected, it has gotten worse – and now includes authors such as Leonard Sweet, Henri Nouwen, Tony Campolo, Phyliss Tickle and other recognized heretical teachers. The bookstore survey is now in jpeg format.

The above results are of only a partial, and not a comprehensive survey – Yet, it certainly does appear that DTS, like so many other Christian institutions now, has been overrun with the spirit of this age.

The Wild Goose Festival: Contemplative Meets Queer Theology

Held annually, the Wild Goose Festival is said to be “focused on justice, spirituality, music and the arts… (and) rooted in the Christian tradition” and is popular among progressive Christians and many involved with the emerging church movement. It is the only Christian music festival in the U.S. that caters to “theological liberals”…

Wild Goose Fest 2017 also prominently featured Shack author William Paul Young and the contemplatives Richard Rohr, Phyllis Ticlke and Tony Campolo, along with new age speakers like Mirabai Starr, and others. Their website is here: http://wildgoosefestival.org/

The following video is edited from some of the Wild Goose promo vids. http://

The Wild Goose Festival is affiliated with the aberrant group “Convergence“. Convergence is the brain child of ultra-liberal emergent apostate Brian McLaren. McLaren, the author of “A New Kind of Christian” – led the ceremony for his son’s same-sex wedding in 2012. [see http://apprising.org/2012/09/24/brian-mclaren-leads-ceremony-at-sons-same-sex-wedding/].

The Convergence charter informs us: “We believe in Jesus and the good news of the reign, commonwealth, or ecosystem of God… We seek to honor, interpret, and apply the Bible in fresh and healing ways, aware of the damaging ways the Bible has been used in the past… We seek the common good, locally and globally, through churches of many diverse forms… We build inclusive partnerships across gaps between the powerful and vulnerable – including disparities based on wealth, gender, race and ethnic identity, education, religion, and sexuality …”

In an 2006 interview with Lief Hansen, McLaren stated: “The doctrine of hell basically says…At the end, God gets his way through coercion, violence, intimidation and domination – just like every other kingdom. The cross isn’t the center then – the cross is almost a distraction and false advertising for God.”

Priscilla Shirer & Mark Batterson Reveal Their Contemplative Affinities

For those who are not aware, Alpha (originally the ‘Alpha Course’) is contemplative at it’s core, and was created and developed by the heretical Holy Trinity Brompton [HTB] – the home of the European wave of the aberrant ‘Holy Laughter Revival’. Nicky Gumbel is HTB’s leader, and face of Alpha. Video used in this post is from the 2017 Alpha Leadership Conference [LC17].

EmergentWatch and Friends Falsely Accused of “Slander”

This article is written in response to the unwarranted attack upon my friend Eric Stuckey, by Holland Davis [Calvary Chapel San Clemente] in his FB article posted 6/2/2017, entitled: “EMERGENT WATCH OR EMERGENT SLANDER?See: https://www.facebook.com/hollanddavis/posts/10212281628851463

First of all, Eric Stuckey is not the owner of the EmergentWatch blog, nor did he write the article exposing the “Pastors Together” group. Eric only posted or “shared” it on his Facebook timeline. Eric is most certainly not guilty of anything, particularly regarding the EW blog. He is now being falsely accused by Davis for “slander” and for allegedly lying.

Eric had only been involved initially with my EW blog, was listed as an admin. (not an owner”) and wrote only two articles, none of which criticized anyone. He has not been involved, or written anything since then – over 3 years ago. Eric wrote only two articles for the EW blog, in the first months of it’s creation.

1- “Noting the Dividers and Offenders“, on 11/16/2013, wherein he shows the biblical precedents for naming names of those involved in false teachings. 2- “Biblical Outreaches” of 12/17/2013. Neither of these articles had anything to do with Holland Davis or the PT group.

I have stated publicly on several occasions on my Facebook page that I -Mark Jefferies – am the writer of the posts on EmergentWatch, and the creator of the related videos on You Tube, formerly under the screen name 4Philemon.

It was after careful research that the “Pastors Together“, of 1/24/2016 post was posted. It was based on publicly available screen captured evidence which is now a matter of public record. I posted 2 posts in early 2016 on Holland Davis and the PT group: 1- 1/24/2016 – https://emergentwatch.com/2016/01/24/pastors-together-a-fellowship-of-errors/ 

2- The EW post of 3/26/2016 on HD & his “Pastors Together” group was simply a posting of my You Tube video, “Pastors Together – Together in Ecumenical Apostasy“. https://emergentwatch.com/2016/03/26/pastors-together-together-in-ecumenical-apostasy/

I did not personally slander Holland. I did surmise from the available data, that Holland “appeared to be” the leader of the PT group, as he is the one actively promoting it on social media. I also did point out his reposting of an IHOP post that was highly questionable, and this post has since been removed from his page.

I stand behind my research in these posts. It is a matter of historical record, as the screen captured documentation remains valid. How screen captured documentation can be interpreted as “slander” is beyond me.

Although the PT group page has removed the “What we Believe” page – that linked them to the ecumenical Lausanne Covenant has been removed, it appears that all of the same churches that were involved at the time I wrote the blog piece are still currently involved. 

Rather than be accountable to the public for their actions and statements, some here have misused Matt. 18, in an attempt to intimidate believers into silence. This is an abuse of pastoral authority, and disingenuous to say the least.

PS: Note that some of the people in positions of power, whose unbiblical activities have been exposed by EmergentWatch are apparently now feeling threatened enough that they will resort to these false accusations; Even enlisting the help of as many supporters as they can, in an attempt to discredit and silence EmergentWatch – so they can continue their activities without fear of exposure. Again, the documentation on this blog speaks for itself.
