Who Would Stan? 2/2

When Turkish and Syrian buildings collapse under seismic stress we should all ask ourselves the question, “who would stand?”

Bethel “Church”: It’s Worse Than I Ever Thought

Several short years ago I wouldn’t have had any concerns about Bethel or Bill Johnson or his head honchos at all. I’d never been to Redding, I’d never really been directly influenced by them but, somehow, I’d still have struggled to believe that they were a viper’s pit of demonic/New Age activity and deception.

About a year ago I did a quick, 30 min vlog responding to Bethel’s attempt to defend their theology. I’d evidently only dealt with the proverbial tip of the iceberg.

Please now see the most recent video in which I briefly allude to three ‘case studies’ that demonstrate the profound lack of discernment and biblical literacy from senior church leaders here in the U.K.

It is time for public repentance because “when the LORD would heal His people, He reveals iniquity” (my paraphrase of Hosea 7:1 cf. Ephesians 5:11).

The Gross Naiveté of the Local Church

I also strongly urge you to watch Mike Winger’s January 2023 work on these latest revelations here.

A year later, (Jan 2023), Mike Winger has kindly done the more substantial leg-work to expose the fuller extent of extraneous spiritual activity that is essentially nothing other than New Age occultism with Jesus’ precious Name slapped on top.

Many have been deceived and are being deceived.

Over the course of the last decade, Mairi and I have actually sat privately with senior pastors who have held Bill Johnson high and aloft as ‘the’ man to listen to and follow and read. We have sat within local churches in Edinburgh who promote “Bethel students” whose indoctrination by the hands of Johnson and Bethel have been endorsed and encouraged. We have even led gatherings with people who lap all this demonic mysticism up (while ourselves not knowing the full extent of the tentacle-reach of the Satanic influence at the time).

In all instances, our paths have since separated because I had the courage to call out the unbiblical teaching and, in some instances, spiritually abusive behaviour.

This is nothing other than the profound work of Satan and if you have been in agreement with Bethel/Johnson— directly or indirectly — you must flee and you must repent.

May God have mercy.

Advisory: scenes of a violent and bloody nature

Greetings All,

Genuine pastoring is sometimes very bloody. David literally killed wolves and bears. Can you imagine the scene? Can you absorb the spiritual implications?

Josh Fortune is a pastor of a church in London and is experiencing the realities of what happens when the Holy Spirit gets hold of a man’s life. He is a brother and an example to all pastors to sit up and take note of, especially if they are sleeping during their watch.

God of All the Earth

I found myself praying this morning for the LORD to act in such a way that it would be undeniable, both to the unregenerate world but also to the Church.

Where You have moved, and where You have already acted in closing the churches in judgment — and where the vast majority have missed Your acting — I pray that You would move in such a way that it would not be open to ‘interpretation’ or ‘perspective’ or ‘point of view’, but that, rather, You would reveal Your arm in this wicked world.

Whether a volcano or an earthquake, do something that can be globally recognised as an ‘act of God’ and that functions so as to cut the heart of man.

Oh, LORD! It is time for You to act.

Just over a fortnight following this blog

It is time for the LORD to act, for your law has been broken.

Psalm 119:126 (ESV)

I pray in the Name of Jesus, I ask as Your son, for You to act:

Demonstrate the justice of Your kingdom; strip the forests bare; let those who have ears to hear, hear; let the elders and mighty men gather.

Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord GOD: It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am about to act, but for the sake of my holy name, which youhave profaned among the nations to which you came. And I will vindicate the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, and which you haveprofaned among them. And the nations will know that I am the LORD, declares the LordGOD, when through you I vindicate my holiness before their eyes.

Ezekiel 36: 22-23 (ESV)

Oh, LORD God Almighty — Abba! — please act in mercy and grace and arrest all the Earth.

As You gave mercy to the house of Israel, as You gave mercy to Rachel and Leah, Abraham and Sarah and David, please have mercy on the Church today — bring us to our senses and to our knees!

Then you will remember your evil ways, and your deeds that were not good, and you will loathe yourselves for your iniquities and your abominations.

Ezekiel 36:31 (ESV)

You delight to show mercy to those who have built up the house of Israel and who build up the Body of Christ today, but I pray now, for the sake of Your holy Name, arrest your covenant people once again so that faithfulness in the land would replace the gross idolatry that plagues it.

Show all the Earth once more that You alone are God, Yahweh.

In Jesus’ Name I pray, amen.

Our Lord, come!
