We’ll have the power to raise people from the dead,
that even death won’t stand before the power of the Church.

—Mike Bickle[1]

 

I don’t know what the Second Coming is to you, …but let me tell you he’s coming to you, he’s coming to his church, he’s coming to abide in you, to take up his abode in you…. I want you to know he’s coming to the Church before he comes for the Church. He’s gonna perfect the Church so the Church can be the Image, be Him, and be his representation.

—Paul Cain[2]

 

God spoke to the children of Israel to build Him a tabernacle because He wanted to come and dwell with them. If you don't build it He won't come and stay. You won't have a habitation without it. We are talking about creating an atmosphere so He can dwell and linger, a sanctuary, a place reserved. A place where the heavens open and we keep going back to keep it open.

—Todd Bentley[3]

 

Now, in this age, there are people being transformed from natural earthly spirit beings into supernatural spiritual sons of God – literally becoming as Christ is in this world today.

—Ron McGatlin[4]

 

The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) teaches the same basic doctrines as the IHOP movement. This is because they both have the same historical roots that track directly back the old Manifest Son of God/Latter Rain cult. There is a noticeable difference, however. Mike Bickle invented his own unique verbiage in his “Bridal Paradigm” in order to update the old Latter Rain doctrines with the prophetic visions of his group of “Kansas City Prophets.” It takes some in-depth indoctrination to grasp the gist of Bickle’s message. But it is somewhat easier to figure out what the NAR is teaching. Both groups rely upon the old George Warnock “Feast of Tabernacles” allegory[5] for their eschatology. And both are eagerly anticipating a “Second Pentecost” experience of a coming “Presence.”

A Second Pentecost?

harisma
magazine recently published an article about this titled “Spirit-Empowered Believers Praying for Second Pentecostal Outpouring.” The article reveals a meeting of a group calling itself “Empowered 21” (E21),[6] featuring Bethel Church’s Bill Johnson, Oral Roberts University’s President Billy Wilson, and top-ranking NAR “apostle” Cindy Jacobs. These leaders met together to plan their long-anticipated “Second Pentecost,” a key component of their Latter Rain endtime beliefs. Charisma reported:

FLOOD WARS
The Gospel of Salvation Lost at Sea
NOAH THE MOVIE: A Review

By Gaylene Goodroad 

“I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (2 Tim. 4:1-4)

Exhibit A: Russell Crowe as Noah 

 

“GIVE US A BIBLE MOVIE!”
I
t was in the days of ancient Israel that the people became discontent with God and demanded an earthly king—one they could see with their eyes. They ended up with Saul (See 1 Sam. 8-15). Likewise today, mankind (Christians included) has become bored with what they say are the worn out messages in the Holy Scriptures (that were written by God Himself). They instead crave an action film that they can see, hear, and almost feel—a visual massage to activate the senses and stimulate the imagination. In the Internet age, the Bible simply cannot deliver what the culture demands: entertainment, not truth. The movie Noah is what we end up with.

Not since Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ has there been such a media buzz about a so-called biblical movie—this time an action-packed, PG-13 rated thriller, with a stellar Hollywood cast. Darren Aronofsky’s Noah stars Russell Crowe (The Gladiator) as our ancient forefather Noah; Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs) as Methuselah, Noah’s grandfather; Emma Watson (Harry Potter) as Noah’s stepdaughter-turned-daughter-in-law, and Nick Nolte (Lorenzo’s Oil) as the voice of Samyaza, the Watcher (fallen angel) king.

In case the reader is already detecting some abrupt detours from the biblical text, let’s briefly review what the Scripture actually says about the man Noah and his famous flood before we continue.
