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.”

NAR apologist Dr. Michael Brown to speak at Calvary Chapel affiliate

Steve Berger , pastor of the CC affiliated Grace Chapel (Franklin, TN) is at it again – Even after recently promoting the heretical NAR event “Awaken The Dawn“. [See https://emergentwatch.com/2017/08/24/calvary-chapel-affiliate-hosts-major-ecumenical-nar-event/.

Since the event at his church, Berger has continued to post promotions of the coming ATD event, as well as promotions of it’s leader – NAR man Lou Engle – on his social media pages.

Berger also recently 9/12/17) hosted a “Concert of Prayer” event, wherein his CC affiliated church partnered with the Mike Bicke’s IHOPKC affiliate NHOP – the Nashville House of Prayer.

In this clip Steve Berger does another promo for Lou Engle’s NAR “Awaken The Dawn’ event: https://www.facebook.com/mark.jefferies.3720/videos/vb.100007157913339/1939838079598104/?type=2&theater&notif_t=video_processed&notif_id=1506029400219274

Now, Berger & his church are hosting the NAR apologist, Dr. Michael Brown on Sept. 24th. Yes, the same Dr. Brown who was one of the pioneers of the demonic Brownsville “revival” movement – Who has praised NAR apostates Mike Bickle and Lou Engle as “Great men of God”. [See http://apprising.org/2014/01/14/dr-michael-brown-says-friends-mike-bickle-and-lou-engle-true-men-of-god/

Michael Brown has feigned ignorance as to what the New Apostolic Reformation is. So why does he constantly defend and endorse its major heretical leaders, many of whom he calls friends and brothers in Christ? See: https://churchwatchcentral.com/2017/01/20/michael-brown-admits-his-nar-ties-to-rick-joyner/

Yes, Michael Brown even denies the existence of the NAR, even though he is inexplicably tied with Destiny Image Publishing, which is one of the biggest New Apostolic Reformation publishing houses in the world.

Calvary Chapel Affiliate Hosts Major Ecumenical NAR Event

In researching the upcoming NAR (New Apostolic Reformation) event – “Awakening The Dawn” (ATD) – [the latest in a series of major ecumenical NAR events, such as Together 2016 and Azusa Now etc.] – I came across a regional event being hosted by Calvary Chapel affiliate Grace Chapel, in Franklin, Tennessee, on September 2nd, 2017.

Grace Chapel is the domain of pastor Steve Berger – author of the controversial book “Have Heart” – wherein he proposes that Christian Parents can be in open communication with their dead children – which factually amounts to the spiritualistic (occult) practice of clairaudience. For back-ground on this see: http://www.spiritual-research-network.com/have_heart_bridging_the_gulf_steve_berger.html

This new video expose’ gives the background of this ATD event:

Berger has never retracted the concepts he advocated, but has gone into hosting ecumenical events at his CC affiliated church. Why Berger was never dis-affiliated or even corrected by the overseers at Calvary Chapel [CCOF/ CCA] is an open question. Now Berger has joined hands with some of the worst apostates, in his hosting of this NAR event.

The promotional page on the Grace Chapel website tells us: “We will gather together to worship & join in the story and vision for Awaken The Dawn, with David Bradshaw (Leader of Awaken The Dawn), Lou Engle (Leader of The Call), and Pastor Steve Berger.

Hillsong, Bethel Music and The Great Seduction

For the first time, Hillsong United is uniting with Bethel (Redding’s) Music for a “Night of Worship” on July 21 @ the Redding Civic Auditorium. Note that by their participation, Hillsong is effectively declaring their affinity with Bethel Redding, it’s music, and by default, it’s doctrines.

That these two groups should join together is hardly surprising, as both have been at the forefront of the transformation of church music – from the worship of God, to effectively worshiping “worship” music – From music that exalts God, into music that exalts an experiential “encounter” with “the presence”, and which magnifies feelings and emotions.

See the FB page: http://See https://www.facebook.com/events/287159281729072/?acontext={“action_history”:”[{\”surface\”:\”page\”,\”mechanism\”:\”page_upcoming_events_card\”,\”extra_data\”:[]}]”,”has_source”:true}

And see: https://www.facebook.com/bethelmusic/videos/1746729115357538/

The Word of God says that: “God is a Spirit: those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” – John 4:24 And – “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” – John 17:17; Jesus proclaims: “The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” – John 6:63

Many have apparently forgotten that the Holy Spirit will not magnify Himself or some alleged experience, but will magnify Jesus! “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me…” – John 16:13-14

“The Spirit expressly says, that in latter times some shall depart from the faith, *giving heed to SEDUCING spirits, and doctrines of devils!” – 1Tim. 4:1

“Giving heed to” implies active “LISTENING to”; And, the Gk. Word used for “seducing” spirits is planos : meaning ‘imposter” or “deceiver”… “seducing”. Now, consider: The word used in 1Cor. 14:25 – [G4352] proskuneo …to crouch down or prostrate…worship; fr. G4314 <>> the same root as the “giving heed in 1Tim.4:

Once the enemy gets you in the subjective, sensual, emotional arena, where God’s Word is no longer the objective foundation – Then you can be manipulated, being led by seductive sensations and feelings, and discernment become almost impossible.

It has been observed that much of the contemporary Christian music by Hillsong, Bethel and Jesus Culture, etc. has more in common with the songs of the Trance genre, than with genuine Christian worship.

It is no secret that Bethel Redding teaches the doctrinal aberrations of the New Apostolic Reformation [NAR]. Their practices are also deviant – and from “grave sucking” to “fire tunnels” and the shaking and quaking of the Toronto “blessing”, etc. – Bethel attendees have been shown exhibiting some of the most bizarre occultic manifestations. This is the ripened fruit of Bethel.

Consider what Bethel Music says of itself, that they are: “a worship ministry formed as an extension of Bethel (Redding) Church and founded by Brian and Jenn Johnson”.  A tree is surely known by it’s fruit.

Remember what Hillsong Worship Leader JD revealed on 1/28/2015 – “We [Hillsong Worship] are about fulfilling our Senior Pastor’s [Brian Houston] vision – not our own” and that “As amazing as our creative ideas might be, if they don’t ultimately line up [NOT with scripture, but ) what our Senior Pastor and leaders want, then we happily put them aside… Our worship teams EXIST TO BUILD THE CHURCH!”

Yet somehow all this goes out the window, and discernment is set aside, as their seductive music is extolled as “beautiful” and “wonderful” worship, and is played in bible teaching churches across the globe.

C.H. Fisher (1), in his Truth Keepers blog states: “Many of the ones that rush to associate with Bethel Music in their concerts might never accept the bizarre shenanigans of Bethel Church. The alluring music has seduced them into to associating rather than exposing. Further, Bethel Music’s siren songs have the hypnotic effect of covering up one hard fact. If the spirits of darkness are in the source, then the same spirits are in the flow. “Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening?” (James 3:11) “A bad tree cannot bear good fruit.” (Matthew 7:15-20).”

And: “Bethel Music does not go around the country putting on concerts to showcase talent, to entertain people, or to make lots of money. The so-called worship team is on the road for one purpose. That purpose is to unite people with the spirits that comprise its source, Bethel Church.”

And, Instead of exposing the darkness, “professing Christians are bonding with Bethel Music in a concert. They weave and sway with the music, their spirits open and receptive, being stroked by the ebb and flow of the rhythms and hypnotic sounds.” They unwittingly are fellowshiping with demons.

The use of pleasant sounding music to seduce and win converts is not a new tactic. Author Brandon Hines notes: “How was it, then, that Arius spread his [Arian Heresy] doctrine, if it was as clearly venomous as it is? Photius of Constantinople wrote, “Arius, after his secession from the church, composed several songs to be sung by sailors, and by millers, and by travelers along the high road, and others of the same kind, which he adapted to certain tunes, as he thought suitable in each separate case, and thus by degrees seduced the minds of the unlearned by the attractiveness of his songs…” – Enchanted and Ensnared by Music 11/31/16

If the theology of a church is aberrant, it’s music should not be used public worship. A biblical theology of worship is concerned with the true worship of God. True biblical worship must be reverent (Hebrews 12:28). We must understand who is being worshiped. God is holy, just, and perfect. We are sinners saved by grace coming before a holy God on the basis of our Redeemer. worship must be “in truth,” that is, our worship must be properly informed (John 4:24). Unless we have correct knowledge of the God we worship, we will not be worshiping in truth. Those who wish to worship biblically must worship God as He is revealed in Scripture.

If the church teaches and practices false doctrines, it music will, by default, be worshiping a false, or counterfeit Christ.

 

In the same chapter where the apostle Paul reveals that the enemy “Transforms himself into an angel of light. (and that) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves…” (2Cor. 11:14-5) he also warns believers that: “I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted—you may well put up with it!: – 2Cor. 11:4-5

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.”

Holy Yoga EXPOSED!

Emergent Watch takes a close look at the  so-called Christian ministry of “Holy Yoga”. Holy Yoga has been around since 2005, and is the brainchild of Brooke Boon. This group came to our attention when it was discovered it was being brought into local churches in Orange County, CA. Since at least 2013, it has been a regular “ministry” at Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church, and Mariner’s, Irvine.

 

 Holy Yoga has recently shown they are teaching not simply yogic postures, but the breathing exercises known as Pranayama – which is designed to awaken occult Kundalini powers. Surveying the Holy Yoga podcasts on Soundcloud, it is also discovered that they are teaching guided meditations, “Breath Prayers”, Christianized Mantra meditation, as well as contemplative spirituality.

Although they claim to “100% Jesus and 100% Yoga” – The eastern occultic concepts integral to yogic practices – such as Chakras, Niyamas, etc. – are integrated into their teachings. Even the monistic spiritual concepts associated with chanting “OM”, are accepted as valid. These occultic concepts and the doctrines they are based upon are diametrically opposed to genuine biblical Christianity.

The following is a video expose’ of “Holy Yoga”:

As has been noted by many researchers – even the yoga poses themselves are connected with demonic “gods”. Yogic postures are not simply “stretching” exercises. As has been demonstrated, what is known as “Hatha Yoga” developed within and came out of the occult “left-handed” Tantric schools of Indian practices. Everything having to do with “yoga” is very dangerous, and can never be synthesized or Christianized.

NOTE: “The things Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God. I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons!” – 1 Corinthians 10:20-21

 

If you know someone involved in Yoga, or other New Age/ occultic practices, pray for them and pray for a way for you to reach out to them with the truth.
