Pastor Bill Johnson preaches a different “Jesus”

Did Jesus the Messiah have to be “born again?” And was the Messiah, only begotten from the resurrection onwards?

Watch this video of pastor Bill Johnson from Bethel Church in Reading.  Within the first minutes Johnson preaches a “different Jesus”, than Jesus of the Bible. A similar “Jesus” of the Jehovah Witnesses. Or the “Jesus” of Islam. (Isa).

The American preacher claims the Messiah had to be “born again”. Jesus used the lack of such a rebirth as an examples, of people not being permitted to enter the kingdom of Heaven.  A few second later, Johnson claims that the Father calling his son “begotten”, means from the resurrection onwards.

The consequences of such teaching, are catastrophic. The Messiah is branded as a human being, only, till he has resurrected. On that God can cease to be God, and become God again. If Jesus is only a human being drying on a cross, there has never been an eternal redemption for sins. There is no victory won at Calvary Hill in Jerusalem. Man is still lost in his sins, and will have to struggle to gain, work or win his salvation by his deeds.  Truly the gospel of Bill Johnson is no gospel at all, buy a message from the deepest pits of Hell.

This is the truth: Jesus is God, eternally. The Alpha and the Omega, the begotten Creator, begotten by the eternal Father. Jesus walked on Earth as fully God and fully man. He never sinned. Therefore He did not need to be “born again”. The eternal king of the Universe, the Messiah, is the resurrection and life. Amen.

Isaiah 9:6
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

2 Corinthians 11:4
For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.

We have to pray for redemption for pastors like Bill Johnson. Be careful. Do not let people who have been anointed by Johnson touch you. Impartation of evil and unclean spirits will take place. You will loose your blessings, and be taken into a spiritual world of confusion. Do lot let people from this movement be permitted to lead your congregation into deception. I have warned you. Your blood shall not come on my hands.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      I hear street preachers who teach “the goodness of God, drives us towards repentence”. This is only partly correct. They forget “In Christ/the Messiah”. The right perspective, is that all men are lost. And only those who accept Jesus as God and Lord, will be saved by Him. The fear of God, through a 100 per cent surelty of eternal damnation without acceptence of Jesus, will drive us towards repentence. Otherwise, we will look like, behave like and be like all others.

      1. I absolutely agree,without Christ,we are all totally lost,but im not sure what your second comment had to do with my initial response.
        God bless you,Arild!
        Long live the truth! 🙂

  1. I breaks my heart as this kind of Apostasy is growing world wide… and most will not listen to truth either. I often think if they would just read the Bible they could find the truth but instead the just listen to the pulpits . If some tell it like It is they drop out of that church as they want a feel good teaching. Evil is growing very fast as G0d said it would.. HE is coming so we do our very best to stay in prayer and try to reach the lost… blessings

  2. Sadly, a lot of pentecostal churches in Norway have embraced this Word-of-faith theology, the weird, demonic-like “Toronto-blessing” manifestations that often follows, and the false teachings that “a Word spoken from Our mouth, in faith, is in itself able to CREATE [ex miracles, wealth, health, change in weather, etc]” (!) Some in this movement even claims that God has to obey our words(!). It’s totally insane!

  3. I live in the Sacramento region of California. Jesus Culture from Bethel relocated to a suburb of Sacramento called Folsom. They have been here for 2-3 years now and they have taken over. On their first day, there were 2 services of 2,000 people. That is an immediate 4,000 people on the first day of your church plant. My church is one of the only churches that do not support Jesus Culture/Bethel in any way. We have 150 people in our church. So we are in the minority in this city and it’s agonizing to watch Jesus Culture sweep the city, targeting the youth of course I have been contending for the faith in this area since 2007 when the Lord awoke me out of my slumber. I don’t have much fruit but that is up to the Lord to produce. I groan in my prayers for these people to awake just like I did. Truthfully, I am slightly hopeless these days

  4. Hello, my brother, I’ve not heard of this guy before and I don’t think I want to listen to him again.

  5. Thank you for the warning but note that I was not able to hear the sound in the video. I am not sure if it is the device I watch it on or the video itself.

  6. I stopped to read Acts 13 and found verses 29 through 39 says nothing in the context as this man falsely preaches. It mentions the 2nd Psalm and quotes it but says nothing about Jesus being “born again”. Bill Johnson uses the phrase “today I have begotten you” and mine uses the phrase ” You are my Son; today I have become your Father.” This is after verses 30-33 talking about Jesus’ resurrection. This Bill Johnson twists the fact it mentions the resurrection then says Jesus is God’s son / is His begotten. I believe this phrase is in reference to us who He has saved! and not Jesus who has ALWAYS been the Son of God. We became sons and daughters AFTER His resurrection….. duh….

  7. This is utter nonsense.
    You have not understood the context in which Bill Johnson was preaching from.
    It is absolutely true what Bill said in the video. But I think have misunderstood what he was trying to say.
    See Jesus did what he did as The Son of Man. It means that Jesus was fully God but he was fully man also. If he did his as God I would be like WOW. But if Jesus did what he did within the limitations of man. Then I too now am compelled to walk in and seek the same level that Jesus walked in.
