Respected NAR prophet Cindy Jacobs sent an emergency prayer alert to her followers, on Thursday, warning that a major terrorist attack–on the scale of 9/11–is being planned against the United States. There are many problems with her pronouncement.
Yesterday I watched a challenging message given by Kenneth Berding–a professor at Talbot School of Theology–at a “Day of Prayer” service held at Biola University back in Fall 2010. Though Dr. Berding’s message is now a few years old, its challenge is still relevant. And it is especially relevant for those of us Christians whose ministry is in the area of discerning false teaching.
I just finished watching the memorial service held for Bob Jones–a leading prophet in the New Apostolic Reformation movement who died Feb. 14. While watching the service, I was struck by two things.
Bob Jones, a prominent prophet in the New Apostolic Reformation movement, died Friday, February 14. Jones’ prophetic words, given over four decades, influenced many leaders in the New Apostolic Reformation movement, including Mike Bickle, founder of the International House of Prayer (IHOP) in Kansas City, Missouri.
Rolling Stone magazine released a fascinating article, last week, about Tyler Deaton–a former student in the International House of Prayer, who is charged with the murder of his wife.
In September, I wrote a post expressing concern that Francis Chan would be speaking at the IHOP “OneThing” conference at the end of December. Chan spoke on Monday, and I was pleased that his message–which included praise for the “great things” going on at IHOP–also included some loving corrections to New Apostolic Reformation teachings.
