Having a genuine relationship with Jesus should not be gauged by emotions, we are not to “seek a high” so to speak. I’ve noticed in a lot of mainstream Christian churches emotions have become an idol and it’s unsettling and misleading to new believers.
“We’re encouraged to use our feelings, rather than the facts of Scripture, as a gauge to see where we’re at spiritually. Strong faith is equated to a crazed, emotional high, to being “on fire for God”… but anything less is labeled as weak faith (or even, no faith). Youth especially are wrongly taught to evaluate their standing with the Lord by their emotions.
And even though the Christian faith is based on objective truth and historical realities–in particular, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ–we are still tempted to look inward and fix our eyes on our fickle feelings and momentary moods instead of the unchanging Lord of glory.”
According to the Word of God, the gifts of the Holy Spirit consist of: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord (Isaiah 11:1-2). And the fruits of the Spirit consist of: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and SELF-CONTROL. (Galatians 5:22-23)
The folks in these videos are not expressing ANY of these attributes but instead are gravely misrepresenting the Spirit of God!!
If your church looks anything like this I would repent to God for participating in such lunacy, turn away from your sins, and run, run, RUN AWAY from these seducing spirits and their works of darkness.
Please pray for discernment (Psalm 119:125).
The movements and sounds these people are making in the video above look a whole like this New Age cult from the 1980s:
I’ve also been thinking about the signs and wonders circuit, more like circus, of Christianity and how deceptive it really is. If professing Christians need to see “signs and wonders” in order to believe in God it shows not only a lack of discernment but also a huge lack of Faith.
When Jesus performed miracles it consisted of valuable results like raising people from the dead, helping people see and walk, casting demons out, etc. not people convulsing on the floor, crawling around on all fours and barking like dogs, laughing hysterically or acting drunk. These are all cheap thrills, cheap entertainment for professing Christians who don’t really KNOW Jesus and have itching ears or possibly demon oppressed/possessed people that call themselves Christians. The cackling laughter I’ve heard during Todd Bentley, Kenneth Copeland, Bill Johnson, and Mike Bickel “sermons” made my skin crawl with how evil it sounded. The REAL Holy Spirit delivers people from terrible sins like self-destruction in the form of drugs, alcohol, pornography, idolatry, thievery, greed, selfishness, lying, etc.
I know people are seeing things in some of these heretical churches that look supernatural, they are supernatural, but I assure you they are not of God. These seducing spirits also bring with them doctrines of demons that consist of a new Jesus. A Jesus far removed from the true Jesus mentioned in the Bible. And this new Jesus cannot save you!
Remember in Exodus when Pharoah’s council of magicians and diviners were able to duplicate the first 3 plagues but not the other 7? The enemy and his servants have power but not like Jesus Christ. Pray for discernment and to know the true Jesus Christ! Please read the Word of God! The just shall live by Faith! ✝
The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. 3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. 4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer. (1 Timothy 4:1-5)
The Great Apostasy is upon us full-fledged. Bill Johnson from Bethel Church talking about gold falling from the vents and feathers falling everywhere. What?!! Please listen to the nonsense he is spreading at min 3:07. These false teachers are brainwashing the minds of the undiscerning and making authentic Christian worship look so ridiculous to unbelievers to say the very least. Wolves in sheep’s clothing. Please DO NOT be deceived! Pray for discernment! 🙏💚 ✝
All my Christian friends…please be careful who you let “lay hands on you.” Energy transfers this way and unless you intimately know the person and what they are “into” so to speak you have NO IDEA what they could possibly be sending your way. I once thought true born again Christians could not be possessed (only oppressed) by demonic entities but upon further research this thought has been proven to be incorrect.
I have seen the same bodily responses to “hands being laid someone” in Christian services as in Hindu and New Age cult ceremonies. Does the Holy Spirit possess the characteristics of God or the enemy? When I think of God I don’t think of “drunkenness” “hysterical laughter” or “unnatural bodily convulsion,” “fire tunnels,” “feathers and glitter falling from ceiling vents,” etc.
The fruits of the Spirit of God are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. The Bible says the Great Apostasy must occur before the return of Jesus, those folks who have itching ears will run to the teachings of false prophets. This has been happening for a while now. DO NOT BE DECEIVED!!
This article has an extensive list of examples of how we open doorways to the enemy.
“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”
