«Jesus Heal, Jesus Heal. Fire, Fire, Fire. Father, do a miracle now».
I just encountered a Word of Faith teacher, a faith healer in a meeting in Norway. He told the gathered fellowship, that a lame man was going to be healed in the meeting.
The catch the fire movement is an anti-Biblical force that keeps on destroying the faith of thousands of Christians all over the World. The madness reached a hight under the so-called Lakeland revival, aired by TV-stations like God TV. My latest encounter with one of the student of men like Rodney Howard-Browne, told me that this spiritual movement is going from bad to worse.
The lame man in the meeting in Norway did not receive a healing miracle this evening. But the show was full of not Biblical demands for instant healing. And as usual, the preacher did not read from the Bible. In stead, He sprinkled water on the people who came forward to receive healing. «This is the blood of Jesus,», the preacher claimed. As he tried to reveal a man of a sickness demon, He was screaming «Fire, Fire, Fire».
The small house Fellowship was full of people that wanted to see a miracle. The preacher had already claimed he had super national powers. God had just told him that a disaster coming towards Norway had been canceled. And the best part: Just because this foreign preacher man had been faithful, and traveled to Norway.
Why do people want to listen to such super revelation`s, that can not be tested against the scriptures?
Why do people want to listen to «preachers» who feel they have the power to call in miracles on demand?
Jesus warns us about such preachers, and their students:
He answered, “A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.
People who demand miracles, and see miracles do not want to listen about sin, and repent from their fleshy desires.
But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment: in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me;
You might say: But this man preached about Jesus? Why do you object?
For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible.
Satan has his won miracle workers, and they will come in the name of the Messiah. In the name of «Jesus». That a sign and a miracles is performed, is not a proof that the true Messiah have been preached, is present and do perform miracles.
The final anti-Messiah, the anti-Christ will also perform miracles and wonders.
2 Thessalonians 2:8-12
And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, 10and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
A claimed to be «Christian» meeting where the cross is not preached, easily turns into a meeting of lawlessness. When people scream and shout, and manifestations take place, its a perfect breeding ground of deception.
How do we know if Jesus is present in our meetings, and that He is the performer of true miracles?
Paul said: «I preach the Messiah crucified» . Is He presented as God the Son who took your place on Golgata, the only way to Heaven?
Are you attending such meetings?
Let me remind my readers that where Jesus performed most of His miracles, people did not repent and perished.
[ Woe on Unrepentant Cities ] Then Jesus began to denounce the cities in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent.
My friend is still not healed in his lame hand. He feel abandoned by «Jesus» of the false prosperity gospel. No longer do he feel that mercy and grace is sufficient for His salvation…
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.
No more joy. No more peace….
