    Seek To Know The Truth: What False Prophets?

    What False Prophets?

    Source Link at The Berean Call
    Russian Times Online, 1/28/13, “Brain Stopper No. 3: ‘What False Prophets?’

    What do you get when you let a fox guard a hen house?” [Excerpts] : Dead chickens. You may wonder what this old proverb has to do with the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement. Unfortunately—a lot. Let me explain.

    In my last post, I pointed out the repeated warnings in the Bible about false prophets.

    The message is clear: There will be false prophets in the church, and there will be lots of them. So be on guard.

    You would think that, given these warnings, Christians would be on high alert for false prophets.

    Sadly, this is not the case.

    Even those churches that talk the most about prophets and the gift of prophecy–the Pentecostal and charismatic churches–say very little about the need for discerning false prophets.

    And what’s worse: many of the prophets in the NAR movement are actually telling their followers that they don’t need to worry about false prophets. Imagine that!

    Why don’t people need to worry about false prophets? Their answer: Because there just aren’t that many false prophets around.

    The following comment, from influential NAR prophet Bill Hamon, is typical:

    “Despite the occasional false prophet we encounter, we should not let the counterfeit keep us from receiving the genuine….The percentage of false prophets is certainly much lower than the devil would have us believe.

    Out of the 600 pages of personal prophecy I have received over the years, only two were absolutely false, and perhaps were a person’s own opinion rather than God’s word to me. But I am more than willing to put up with the fraction of a percent that are bad in order to receive the overwhelming majority that are God-inspired” ( Prophets and Personal Prophecy , 128).

    Pay close attention to Hamon’s words. He says false prophets’ appearances in the church are only “occasional,” and that the percentage of false prophecies given is only a “fraction of a percent.”

    Wow. There is a marked difference between Hamon’s careless dismissal of the possibility of false prophets in contrast to the sober words of Jesus and the apostles.

    Why would any church leader–and especially one who calls himself a prophet–attempt to downplay the threat of false prophets?

    If Hamon were a true prophet, then he would honor God’s Word–not dishonor it by contradicting its teachings about false prophets.

    And a true prophet would show more concern for God’s people by warning them about the serious threat posed by false prophets.

    There is no good explanation for why Hamon would encourage his followers to let down their guard.

    That is unless this is a case of a fox guarding the hen house.

    About those gifts
    There are a lot of Christian leaders out there who are manipulating everything from spiritual gifts tests to oracles from God to signs and wonders in their church services.

    There are those who are cessationists – who believe speaking in tongues and speaking prophecies are not active for today,

    and those who believe the gifts are still for today.

    Wherever you land on this continuum, whatever camp you fall into on this, you no doubt have noticed that there is a whole lot of trickery and downright fraud going on in the modern church.

    Later on we’re going to talk about what you can look for to determine for yourself how to discern these things wisely, plus some resources on the New Apostolic Reformation, a movement where a lot of this funny business is spawning from.

    Start your research here on Dominionism (NAR).

    Who are these leaders, and what exactly are they teaching, compared to what the Bible says?

    Many of the leaders attended Empower21, a global NAR movement that is infiltrating many denominations and evangelical non-denoms.

    Joining us in our first segment today is John Lanagan, a researcher and writer who covers issues affecting the church such as contemplative prayer, Alcoholics Anonymous,

    The Message “bible,” the New Apostolic Reformation, and more.

    You can find his work at mywordlikefire.com, and at Lighthouse Trails Research.
