Here are some of the things being said (prophesied and taught) by some NAR members. I continue to be amazed the way they are using tragic earthquakes and tsunamis for their own gain. Remember, to be a Christian is to become like Christ through following His teachings and being transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit and also through dedication and discipline of prayer and bible study. Salvation and transformation is not found through piety, or “doing”. It is all about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God incarnate in what He did for us. It is never about man. But notice Chuck’s so called prayer focus. Every day it is about do, do, do. My friends, this is simply not biblical teaching!

Chuck Pierce: The South Pacific Boils! PLUS Day 1-7 Prayer Focus to Release You to See Your Future – Prayer and intercession is keeping the portal between Heaven and Earth opened over us. During one portion of our Sunday morning service, Isaac Pierce began to play a drum with great intensity. The sound that was released and accompanied in song by LeAnn Squier was interpreted by Barbara Wentroble and Keith Pierce.
Prayer and intercession (to pray on the behalf of another) is to go before God the Father to make your requests known to Him. Christian prayer has nothing to do with the opening of a portal. We are given a mention in Revelation 5:8 of golden bowls full of incense which are the prayers of the saints. That’s the visual, nothing about a portal. Would you be surprised to find that portals are used in the occult? How often we hear them from those who claim to be modern day apostles, prophets and teachers – here, Pierce, and also Bill Johnson, Todd Bentley, Bob Jones, Todd Bentley, Patricia King, John Paul Jackson and many who follow after them who are like minded. If these people speak for God where are they getting this idea?
Notice the connection Chuck Pierce makes between the release of sound – drum and song interpreted as prophetic word. You will need to judge the word just like we are told in scripture. For brevity, I will only post the sections that “wowed” me. If you wold like to read the word in it’s entirety, use the link above. Certainly there is much more that could be revealed.
Keith Pierce then said, “The moment that Isaac began to hit the drum, I saw ignition occur. As it ignited I saw fire begin to shoot out from our fingertips.
Fire out of fingertips. There is no way this is of God!
(Keith again) I keep seeing the waters of the South Pacific warming and beginning to bubble.
Barbara added this word of the Lord, I am going to give you power over the winds and over the waves. Even as My Son spoke to the winds and spoke to the waves and commanded them to be still, this is the hour that you will speak to the destructive winds and to the destructive waves and you shall cause them to be stilled.
This is about the only time you will hear about Jesus Christ. It is in the opportunistic wording of satan, to be like God, or when they pray or decree “in Jesus’ name”. They want to be God -and these words prove it. We do not have the power over wind and waves. Only Jesus, only God.
Mark 4:39 Then He arose ad rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. Jesus calmed the sea and the wind. He did not teach his disciples who were with them to do it. If that were His intention, what a great teaching moment! But, it was not and still to this day is not.
Keith continued, “Listen to the sound of war because it is building. When it builds My people will arise. When they arise, they will come to their new mantle. They will receive their new authority. They will extend their hands in a new way. Extend your hands and face the contrary wind. Speak to the ill winds and say, ‘Cease. You will not bring the locust across my land. Cease. You will not enter my cargo ship. Cease and desist.’ Today is the day that I am Jehovah-Shalom. I am your peace. I am your prosperity in the midst of the storm.”
Listen to the buzz words – sound of war, arise, new mantle, new authority? Oh, that’s the good one – new authority! By whom? Who will bring to the body of Christ this new authority? Christ said all authority is given to Me in heaven and on earth – Matthew 28:18.
And that last line almost makes us want to think it was God speaking – I am Jehovah-Shalom. But no! It cannot be our God because He never told us or taught us the things the NARites do. They do not come in the name of God because they do not speak His word. They have no power or authority over the church – none. And that is my declaration to them!
The Hebrew letter symbol for the year 5770, Ayin, not only means to see, but the word means to BUD FORTH!
I say Chuck Pierce’s statement is divination! And is strictly forbidden in scripture. Leviticus 19:26, 31
From day one of the prayer focus by C Pierce –
One cycle that I feel we must break is linked to the spirit of poverty. In a materialistic society, this spirit tends to blind us from seeing the will of God. We must declare victory over the spirit of poverty! This spirit has violated God’s perfect order and produced instability in many individuals. I feel that the Lord is saying that we need to take a violent and passionate stand on behalf of the Body of Christ concerning this spirit—that we must press through difficulties and storms to force an atmospheric change.I declare that any atmosphere of poverty encircling around you or your sphere of authority will be invaded with the atmosphere of blessing and glory from Heaven.
I don’t necessarily believe in a spirit of poverty. There are many reasons for lack in our lives. But Chuck says this spirit will bind us from seeing the will of God. If that is the case, maybe repentance is in order, maybe it is a matter of getting our focus off our circumstances and back on to God. That is not done by a declaration that will change the atmospheric conditions around us. We are not affected spiritually the atmosphere, but by what we think on. Philippians 4:8, Proverbs 23:7, learn to be full or suffer lack – Philippians 4:12 and that it is Christ who gives us strength, v 13.
From day three-
The generation that came out of Egypt was filled with poverty resulting from slavery. Therefore, they resisted the war that would be necessary for them to be established in the abundance of God’s promises. Their fear caused their perspective of God’s purposes to be clouded and confused. They lost the ability to advance and enter into success. They could only see their enemy and not their victory! The enemy was in fear of them because they knew God was backing them. Riches were waiting for the covenant people of God and had to be postponed to another generation that would develop a mentality of dominion.
Number 14:11 Then the Lord said to Moses: “How long will these people reject me? And how long will they not believe Me with all the signs which I have performed among them?” Clearly, not a matter of war as Chuckie would have us believe and do, but a matter of rejecting God. They did not lose the ability to enter into success, they were prevented from entering the promised land by the Almighty. Still, not a matter of dominion, but one of obedience and adoration. Dominion is a key component of NAR/Word of Faith false doctrine. The people of God did not have to take dominion of the land, it was given to them by the Creator.
From day six-
I was recently in Las Vegas, and I asked the Lord, “What is the real problem here?” I heard Him say, “Sabbath is not part of this culture!”
Sabbath! I was recently in Las Vegas too. It is a vile place to be. Sabbath rest is not the problem. Sin is the problem. I would say there’s a lot of resting going on there, at the expense of others. I cannot fathom our Righteous Father commenting in such a way! Salvation, not rest, Jesus Christ is the need and He is not a matter of culture!
From day seven –
Let’s ask the Lord to remove the debt that has blinded us. Thank Him that He redeemed you from debt so He can show you how to be delivered today from any debt that surrounds you. Even if you have lost what you borrowed, you can recover! You can SEE your way past your debt.
Jesus Christ paid our debt of sin and through Him we are redeemed from death and eternal hell. Following this false prophet’s direction will not lead you to Christ or His ways. He is a dangerous man intent on removing you from your relationship with the Lord by taking your focus off the true ways of God and the message of the gospel and convincing you that you need to do these these “prayer focuses” he puts out. My friends, that work is deceitful, the work of Satan.
For many will come in my name, saying I am the Christ, and will deceive many. Matthew 24:5
