    My niece was healed instantly if a long term illness at Bethel 
    I have attended and been drawn to love Jesus more 
    several others I know have returned from Bethel with a passion for JESUS 
    to tell others about him and His great love
    Jesus said by their FRUIT you shall know them 
    One of the adjunct staff has helped me find a deeper relationship with my Lord and Master Jesus Christ.
    I now  oversee several evangelists in a ‘restricted nation’ who are coming to Jesus through dreams as well as direct evangelism with the Gospel message.
    The Holy Sirit agrees with the WORD 
    There s SO MUCH good fruit coming from Bethel that must be taken into consideration when we offer correction. 
    Correction is not the same as rejection or condemnation. Please be careful that you do not label God’s work as the work of the enemy 
    Do bring correction or a sharpening by pointing out small errors in emphasis.
    DO remind those who are enamored with signs and wonders but neglect the WORD.
    but be very careful about making pronouncements upon something that is undeniably having great Godly impact around the world 
    I do pray that you all would relax and go minister God’s love to the unbelievers

    Holly; I am very curious re: any info you’ve obtained on the ‘Glory of Zion International Ministries’ & Chuck Pierce. (I subscribed while the ‘Wool was still pulled over my eyes ‘) They just sent me a
    propaganda mailing, with an envelope for a donation of course, in-
    cluding a “Fix Your Eyes on the Horizon”(by Andrea Schundelmier)
    a large occultic looking eye! Lord help us to be in diligent prayer 
    concerning these ‘appostelic/prophetic’ ‘sheep'(ravening wolves)!

    Any time there’s a influx of false there’s always the true. There are true apostles today but they don’t place themselves over the church. Their ministry is to the church but under the local pastor. Yes they are used in the gifts of the Spirit but so is everyone else in the body of Christ. Let’s read the Word and allow the Spirit reveal the Truth.  Not allowing people to influence our way to God with extreme teachings to the right or to the left. It is a straight and narrow path and few go there of.

  5. Pastor Harold Kilborn Says:

    Aloha Holly,
    I just wanted to let you know how much of a blessing you are to the body of Christ. I really enjoy your materials on your website. May God continue to use you in exposing heretical teachings that are coming into the church by the mega-doses. There are not enough voices in the church sounding the alarm and many pastors will not say anything from the pulpit. I have publicly in our church denounce different ones in the body of Christ for bringing in their damnable teachings, especially in the area of the NRA, that has swept many Charismatic and Pentecostal Churches. It is never easy to be involved in such a ministry, with so many coming down on you with golf shoes, just for telling the truth about those who are bringing false doctrine into the church. They accuse you of not being loving. The most loving thing we could do, is warn people, lest they be taken captive. 

    Presently, I am one of the leaders statewide, in the Hawaii  Assemblies of God denomination, and it has not been easy, as many of the leaders and churches are involved in the  NAR, Spiritual Warfare, and the Word Faith Movement. It is an uphill battle.

    For your info, Dr. Walter Martin had a great influence upon my life. What a blessing he was.

    Holly, God bless you and your work!  
    To all ‘seekers’ out there… we all remember Jim Jones who de-
    ceived so many!… But how many remember David Berg (self pro-
    claimed biblical title ‘Moses’) of the leader of the Children of God ? 
    He supplied his followers with ‘Mo Letters’ to augment their ‘in-
    house’ biblical studies…..He was found out to be a pedofile…. sexually abusing his own granddaughter (after being denied by his daughter, who escaped!…Read her book, it’s enlightening).

  7. Gene Says:

    P.S.; A follow-up regarding my comments re: David Berg….no matter how much someone may come off as a ‘loving Shepard ‘
    we must be in constant prayer and adhere to the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit!  REMEMBER…the people Jesus told 
    “Depart from me, I never knew you ‘ had  ‘done many wonderful and miraculous works in his name’!! Just saying….  God Bless. TC kHB

  8. Gene Says:

    Please remember folks; Jesus said through His Holy Word that the deceivers would be so convincing that even the very elect could be deceived!  So, if you are truly seeking for Jesus’s will to be man-
    ifest in your life, you do not need any present-day ‘so-called’ prophet/apostle to tell you what you need to know… you’ve got the words of apostles Paul & Peter & James & Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and Jesus’ OWN WORDS through the Holy Spirit to guide you into the Truths you need to ‘work out your faith with fear and trembling! God Bless.

  9. Chad Says:

    i agree to a degree we don’t need prophets/apostles telling us some things but the true church has apostles and prophets in it. When you do away with this teaching you are taking away from the Word. Just because people have bad experiences with false teachers doesn’t mean true christians should live in fear. That’s what the devil wants we walk by faith trusting God will guide our steps. Fear hath torment and to many are teaching this false message. To many upstarts want to be heard and first need to be taught themselves.

  10. L Says:

    There is allegedly evidence (I do not know but have read this) that Jim Jones and some
    other leaders were deliberately infiltrated.  That does not justify the error.

    I agree we need to test all things with the Word of God. 

    Anyone, even a sincere believer, could be deceived on various issues.

    In my opinion it is very confusing.

    Thank you for this blog.

  11. Susan Stone Says:

    Holly, enjoying all your work! I think Johnny Enlow would be a good one to add to your list as I have recently found out that he is reaching even baptists ! He is a big 7 mm guy and written many books. Also Brice Cook just released a new book “8th Mountain Mamdate”  Its hard to keep up with everyone. I was reading your article on changing of the guards and you asked if there was anyone to add and I couldn’t seem to find a place to reply so that is why I wrote you. God Bless you Holly, Susan

  12. Greg T. Says:

    Holly, in the spirit of Luke 17:3, I am curious why you deleted my comment? As far as I can tell, there was absolutely nothing out of line in that comment.

  13. Holly Says:

    Hi Greg T., I’m not sure which comment you’re referring to. I just saw one you posted 9 days ago that I somehow overlooked. I approved it. Is that the one you’re referring to?

  14. Dave terpstra Says:

    Do not be a pharisee,,,leaders of spirit of error…they saw miracles and yet plotted to condemn Jesus…Your on this same thought pattern,,it seems..

  15. Amron Says:

    Hi, Holly!

    I’ve read several of your pieces. Keep on contending for the faith that was once and for all entrusted to the saints. God bless and keep you.

  16. John Orr Says:

    1 Corinthians 14 is about prophesy, the whole chapter! Verses 34 and 35 are are an indirect quote in the imperative mood. This grammatical form is used to distance the author from the statement that a woman must be silent in church. “Was it from you the word of God first went forth? Or has it come to you only? NASB” Is any other interpretation of this verse, verse 36, possible other than a sound rebuke of the idea that a woman must not speak in church. If you consult Martin Luther’s Bible you will clearly see that verses 34 and 35 are an indirect imperative. In Greek grammar a shift in mood signals the following is an indirect quote.
    Secondly, in 1 Timothy 2:9-15 the word woman should be translated as wife if a definate article preceeds it.

  17. Philippe George Says:

    Dear Holli

    Greetings in Jesus name! Please can you provide clarity on the followings:

    1. What is the difference between the NAR Movement, and the “Word of Faith” movement?

    2. Please can you explain clearly why according to you, the NAR movement is NOT a cult? Reliable Christian organizations has different views on the matter, thus appreciate your views?

    Grateful for a feedback soon, since we will be at our Church, sharing on the topic the following Saturday.

    Await with thanks!



  18. Holly Says:

    Philippe, thanks for your questions. In short, the major difference between the NAR and Word of Faith movements is that NAR promotes present-day authoritative, governing offices of apostle and prophet (along with many related teachings). NAR has incorporated Word of Faith teaching into its theology, but the distinctive NAR teaching is about present-day authoritative apostles and prophets, who govern the church and bring new, crucial revelation. I do not describe NAR as a cult because, in my opinion, it doesn’t meet the theological definition of a cult. According to the theological definition, a cult of Christianity is a group that claims to be Christian but denies at least one doctrine that is essential to Christianity (such as the deity of Christ or the Trinity). From what I’ve seen, most churches in NAR hold to the essential doctrines. Where they go wrong is in the extra, erroneous teachings they have added to their teachings. Thus, I see NAR teachings as aberrant, meaning they are seriously errant and pose a spiritual danger to those who embrace them. Some within NAR may deny essential Christian doctrines, but I do not see that presently happening in the movement as a whole. I hope my answers help clarify my views.
