Your Supernatural School of Ministry Needs to Pay Your Tuition Otherwise They’re Hypocrites

Thinking about attending a supernatural school of ministry? Let me give you one helpful tip before you give them money for tuition.

They’re a bunch of hypocrites if they won’t pay your tuition. What do I mean? Hear me out.

John 14:12
 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.

Schools of supernatural ministry are built on the premise that we are to be doing greater works than Jesus. That’s right, you’re giving them your money, so they can teach you how to do supernatural stuff, greater than even Jesus did. Shouldn’t they have to prove they can do supernatural stuff, greater than Jesus did, before you fork over your money?

Of course they should. You may be wondering what I am getting at.

Matthew 17:
27 However, so that we do not offend them, go to the sea and throw in a hook, and take the first fish that comes up; and when you open its mouth, you will find a shekel. Take that and give it to them for you and Me.”

Matthew 14

19 Ordering the people to sit down on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds,20 and they all ate and were satisfied. They picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full baskets. 21 There were about five thousand men who ate, besides women and children.

Jesus put money in the mouth of a fish. He multiplied food. That’s really supernatural. Surely schools that base their existence on doing even greater works than that, should in fact be doing greater works than that.

Why don’t these supernatural ministry schools simply multiply the money they have on hand? Why don’t they speak thousands of dollars into existence into the mouths of fish?

To prove they’re capable of teaching you the stuff they’re going to teach you, they should be multiplying their own money big time, and paying for the tuition of their students. Failure to do this, means they’re hypocrites who don’t even believe the stuff they’re claiming to teach you.

The first act of proving they can do greater works than Jesus, should be multiplying the money they have on hand, so they can cover tuition. Truth be told, they couldn’t even multiply one slice of bread to feed an extra visitor at lunch time.

Please save your money, and don’t give it to these money grubbing hypocrites. The only thing they’re multiplying is their own income.

Warning People about False Teachers, Prophets, and Healers Didn’t Cease with the Apostles

Waning1.png

Even though many people claim to believe that Jesus is the same yesterday today and forever, and even though the same “many people” claim that all of scripture is for today and we shouldn’t “cut large sections” out of scripture, those same “many people” would rather stick their heads in the sand and act like those verses don’t exist.

Those same people claim you’re just being religious, divisive, and finding fault, if you decide to take those verses seriously. They love taking some scriptures seriously when it allows them to tag the authority of God to every vain imagination and odd manifestation their mind can create. But if you dare discern their vain imaginations and manifestations using other portions of scripture, then all of the sudden you’re a judgmental pharisee with a religious spirit who wants to persecute and divide the body of Christ.

Here are some scriptures that are still for today. Notice how many of them alert us to be aware of people claiming to speak words from God, and claiming to do signs, wonders, miracles, and healing for God. If you’re against taking portions of scripture out of the bible, then you need to take these seriously too.

You should be really suspicious of people who claim to be prophets or miracle workers who seem hostile to being discerned and tested, given the fact that scripture really tells us to be be on the lookout for them.

Matthew 24

23 Then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ,’ or ‘There He is,’ do not believe him. 24 For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. 25 Behold, I have told you in advance.26 So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them.

1 Timothy 4

1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, menwho forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.

Jude

Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints. For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 11
But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully.

13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.

2 Thessalonians 2

Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.

1 Timothy 1

As I urged you upon my departure for Macedonia, remain on at Ephesus so that you may instruct certain men not to teach strange doctrines, nor to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which give rise to mere speculation rather than furthering the administration of God which is by faith. But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.For some men, straying from these things, have turned aside to fruitless discussion, wanting to be teachers of the Law, even though they do not understand either what they are saying or the matters about which they make confident assertions.

Matthew 7

15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17 So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 So then, you will know them by their fruits.

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

2 Timothy 4

I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: 2preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. 3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.

1 John 4

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world. You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

 

 

 

 

Hocus Misfocus: How False Teachers Make Errors Appear Respectable, Safe, and True

misfocuslead1.png

Have you ever heard a false teacher talk about how some teachings or manifestations have abuses, extremes, or crazy aspects? After telling you that said teaching or manifestation has abuses, extremes, and crazy aspects, they then pivot and attempt to tell you the correct way to teach or do said thing. If you’ve ever experienced this, you may be the victim of Hocus-Misfocus.

Hocus-Misfocus is when a false teacher tries to make an error look respectable, safe, and true. They do this by framing it as if it’s true, it’s just that some people have been abusive, extreme, or crazy with said teaching\manifestation.

They’re attempting to get you to let your guard down, by convincing you they’re not crazy, extreme, or false like all of the others.

In reality, they may actually be error\false\heretical just like the others.

You’ll hear people talk about abuses of the prosperity gospel. Here’s the thing, the entire prosperity gospel is false. There isn’t a safe, respectable, or true way to proclaim it. The entire thing is broken.

I could give other examples, but I think you get the point. Whenever you hear a teacher framing something as if it has abuses, extremes, or a crazy end, slow down and evaluate if the entire thing is true or false. Don’t become a victim of Hocus-Misfocus.

The Sprawling Venn Diagram That Is NAR: When You’re Not NAR but Are NAR

VENN11.png

Think of the New Apostolic Reformation as a sprawling Venn Diagram with many circles, with significant overlap within the circles, and slight variations outside of the overlap.

Often people will try to figure out if a preacher or ministry is part of NAR. Part of the figuring out process involves looking for an ultra-precise definition of NAR to compare the preacher or ministry to. Usually ultra-precise definitions are helpful. In this situation they aren’t necessarily helpful.

NAR is like a chili recipe with common ingredients. Like chili, each cook can add different ingredients. Chili doesn’t cease to be chili just because a different seasoning or ingredient is added. Substantively, the chili remains chili.

You need to look at the substance of a preacher or ministry when you’re trying to figure out if it’s part of NAR. How much substantive overlap does it have with NAR objectives?

There are many resources that do a much better job of describing NAR’s ingredients. I’ll point you to some of them. Regardless, I’ll repeat, remember to evaluate a preacher or ministry by the substance of their teaching, and not on their wordy denial of being part of NAR. It’s about the substance, not just the label one applies to themself or their ministry. The ingredients tell the true story. Sometimes labels are deceptive. A preacher or ministry may deny the NAR label, but their ingredients tell a different story.
