I have to say that I have been doing more research and uncovering of the NAR than I thought I would do when I first started my blog. I see great danger for anyone following their directives, and the more I read or listen to them, the worse they get– even the roots are bad.
It is past time to pay attention to who and what they stand for and endorse. It is time to lay aside the emotional wave of wasted enthusiasm and get down to the true business of exposing their dark ways sold off to the ignorant as anything remotely related to the work of Christ or the great commission.
We continue to see the NAR growing more and more and its influence spreading and affecting many organizations. (I hesitate to use the word ministries.) It seems each time I read one of their “prophecies” or “mandates” less and less emphasis is on Christ and the New Covenant brought by His death and resurrection. There is a reason why Christ stated on the cross “It is finished”. But these crazy word of faith-ers would have you and me battle every moment of our lives for some war that is not ours to fight. (Where’s the faith in that?)
We are not called to effect the atmosphere with our words or to change the world through societal transformation. But we are called to preach the gospel – Jesus Christ died for our sins so that through faith in Him as the Son of God we could have forgiveness and eternal life with the Father God. That is the good news preached. It is found in the New Testament of every bible. It is found on the lips of the faithful few and still in some stubborn churches throughout the world. (God bless ’em!) Adam and Eve had dominion over the earth but they lost that dominion when they disobeyed God. Dominion has not been given back to mankind but we were afforded a savior!
I found the following on Truthspeaker’s Weblog last night. I highly recommend reading the article regarding the upcoming prayer for the state of New York. There is some good stuff at links she provided. The information is quite eye opening!
NYC Intercessors and the USSPN join with Skull and Bones Pastor to Pray for NYS
I am grieved as I write this post. Some of the people involved in this upcoming event are known by me personally. I am writing this as a warning to those sincere Christians who are unknowingly linking themselves up with occult practices!
It has recently come to my attention through an email invitation that NYC Intercessors is joining up with Peter Wagner’s USSPN to pray for all 50 states. The prayer time for NYS is this week. They are culminating this prayer initiative with a meeting at Faith Exchange Fellowship in lower Manhattan.
Unfortunately, there are several things wrong with this. Firstly it’s total dominionsim, which is unbiblical. Secondly it is being promoted by Cindy Jacobs, calling for the nation to repent. The first thought that ran through my mind was “maybe if those who call themselves prophets repented for all the things they said in the name of God that never happened then something might happen”!
Cindy Jacobs in her letter to the intercessors never mentions the name of Jesus. She also plagiarized president Lincoln with this statement used with out quotes, writing as if these are her own words:
Pat Robertson asks Dan Stratton to confirm that he is a member of “Skull & Bones”, to which Dan replies that, “yes, it is true”.
But, then Stratton defends his membership, largely by attempting to make the organization appear harmless.
“Don’t hold that against me, a lot of Christians don’t like the idea. But, I have had the chance to preach the Gospel, in that group. Many of my friends in that club have come to know the Lord. People put a lot of Masonic connotations to it, but they never made me make any oaths or do anything which have compromised my Christianity.” http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n2241.cfm
This was also admitted in an article published by the NY Times and at one time was posted on Faith Exchange’s web site:
“Stratton is not a bed-of-roses kind of guy. He vividly recalls how, as a poor jock from the sticks, he was mocked for his clothes and called Big Bird by the rich kids at Yale. Still, by his senior year, he was a major figure on campus, second team all-Ivy, starring in school productions of “West Side Story” and “Man of La Mancha” and even playing Larry in “Boys in the Band.” During his junior year, he became a member of Skull and Bones. This affiliation isn’t mentioned in Stratton’s book; a lot of evangelical Christians, he says, are put off by what they regard as the Satanic symbolism of the club, whose members include both George W. Bush and John F. Kerry.”
Here are some quotes from the Quotes from the “Prophetic Destiny of a Nation” 50 State Tour for New York
“God is looking to see if we will lay down our own agendas and agree to connect with one another, which is His agenda!” Dutch Sheets – NYC, NY
“A state wide call to gather and worship will come forth and a NEW sound will arise.” Chuck Pierce – Albany, NY
“60 houses of revival will spring forth throughout New York State!” Chuck Pierce – Rochester, NY
“A prophetic sign will be given during the spring thaw!” – Dutch Sheets – Rochester, NY
Our “Empire State” will become “His Kingdom State!” – Joseph Askins – declared in each city of the tour
I think we should mark these down and see if any of them come true and then call the prophets false who make false predictions!
Christians, it’s time to WAKE UP! Come OUT of Babylon! Then maybe we will see a move of God in America!
