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 smilier “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.
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.
