Why People Join This Movement

When I tell Christians about the teachings of the apostolic-prophetic movement, they often ask me, “Why do people join this movement?” Good question. When you bring the movement’s teachings together, you get a bizarre worldview that has no basis in Scripture. Yet, the thing is: Very few people in the apostolic-prophetic movement have brought ...

The ACPE’s ‘Fortune Cookie Prophecies’ for 2007

On Nov. 1, the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders (ACPE) released their “Word of the Lord for 2007” through the Elijah List. Each year, this group of 33 “prophets” meets to determine what God is saying to the Church for the new year. I want to point out some observations about this latest “Word.” 1. […]

Psychics, Prophets and Scripture Twisting

I am continually distressed by “prophets” in the apostolic-prophetic movement who twist Scripture to support their teachings. Well, I thought I’d seen it all when it comes to Scripture twisting — until last Saturday, Nov. 18. On this day, “Prophet” Steve Shultz — the publisher of the Elijah List (an e-mail newsletter) — sent out […]

Chuck Pierce’s ‘War Season’ and the ‘Year of the Sword’

In my posts, I keep trying to show how much of the apostolic-prophetic movement is not based on the Bible. Instead, many of its teachings are based on prophecies that have no biblical basis and that even contradict the Bible. Here’s another example of a current prophecy that is distracting Christians from the Bible. “Apostle” […]

Dream Cards and Psychic Healing

Back to magic charms. A few posts back, I wrote about the growing popularity of magic charms and spells in the apostolic-prophetic movement, like a property cleansing kit that’s supposed to rid your property of curses (still listed as a “top-selling product” on the Elijah List). Well, yesterday, the Elijah List sent another e-mail advertising […]

Casting Out Demons, Miracles and the Real Test for a Prophet

Can Christians cast out demons, prophesy and perform miracles in Jesus’ name? Yes. Can false prophets cast out demons, prophesy and perform miracles in Jesus’ name? Yes. Since the Bible teaches both these realities, we can’t automatically assume that someone who does a supernatural feat in the name of Jesus is from God. The only […]

Is Jesus a False Prophet?

A few days ago, I received a comment on my blog that took the wind out of my sails. I never thought I’d hear someone who, presumably, claims to be a Christian, say what this person said. In seeking to defend “prophet” Kim Clement, this person made an argument that I found alarming. First, some […]

Magic Charms and Spells

I’ve noticed a growing trend in the apostolic-prophetic movement toward magic charms and spells — objects and phrases that supposedly give those who use them supernatural power. One example: On Oct. 1, the Elijah List sent an e-mail advertising a book, titled Portals to Cleansing by Henry Malone, to help Christians learn how to cleanse […]

Kim Clement, a Prophet?

One of the most troubling aspects of the apostolic-prophetic movement is its “prophets.” Yesterday, the Elijah List (which sends out the movement’s prophecies, daily, to over 133,000 subscribers) sent out this prophecy from “prophet” Kim Clement. Read the prophecy here. Every time the Elijah List sends out another prophecy from Clement (which is fairly often), […]

Finally, a Response

Finally, a reader has attempted to provide a biblical basis for the apostolic-prophetic movement, per my request in my post Sept. 27. Here was my original question: “Where, in the Bible, is there any concept of an end-times army of Christians — led by apostles (with great authority) and prophets (with new revelation) — that […]
