I guess Jesus forgot to mention this when warning of false prophets?

that your name must add up to 888 in order to be a prophet. I guess Jesus forgot to tell us that?

Apparently to this guy, Steve Fletcher:

http://2fletchdr222.blogspot.mx/2013/11/what-is-steve-fletchers-gematria-number.html Jesus forgot to  tell us about the number 888. John must have forgotten to bring that out in the book of Revelation, as well. The link is NOT one which I endorse in anyway.

Be cautious, very cautious anytime you hear self-induced prophets say this kind of thing: Steve Fletcher Over the last months I have received many Prophetic Revelations from the Lord Jesus Christ. Many have a hard time understanding all that I have been sharing, and things are happening now so very fast. (meaning: if you don’t grasp his nonsense, it’s because you are not as enlightened as Fletcher and you better get on that bandwagon) But there is one thing that has been central to everything else I have received, and it is based on this Revelation that I was given…

the Keys to the Book of Daniel…

a Book Sealed until the Time of the End.

STEVE FLETCHER = BIBLICAL PROPHET = 888

Is this a coincidence? Could be… we will soon know.

This is the very same guy that PPSimmons (Carl Gallups) was semi-endorsing on his facebook page back in June 2013. I was shocked when I saw that PPSimons was giving this guy an opportunity to speak his nonsense of date setting and that the rapture was going to happen within a few weeks. I, along with some others voiced our concerns only to be treated with a condescending tone,  mocked and ridiculed by PPSimmons in a passive/aggressive manner. PPSimmons has since removed Steve Fletcher’s nonsense from his timeline.

In the meantime, Steve has managed to come up with all kinds of scenarios and prophecies. All based on a comet. Remember Heaven’s Gate?

CNN:

The following is a conversation between Steve Fletcher and a woman (who I do not know) that took place some months ago. She was trying to set him straight. He would not have it.  

http://www.facebook.com/notes/terri-wonder/please-read-possible-false-teaching-
warning/10200933928731622

One of his answers to her: 

wait and see. I am human and make mistakes. When I am wrong i ask forgiveness and move on.

Well, the date came and went. He was wrong. One would think he would STOP, but he hasn’t. He has moved on and STILL is finding ways to predict and verify he is a true prophet. Sadly, many people are hanging onto his every word. The danger in this is that if people have their faith based upon a self-proclaimed prophet and his worthless words, they will be greatly disappointed. And what if the likes of a Fletcher tells them all that God said they must drink the Kool-Aid at some point? 

Steve, in the old days, you would have been stoned for being a false prophet.

You might be a Charismaniac if…

Wow, some really good observations! Found it here:

http://charismania.wordpress.com/2007/10/23/you-might-be-a-charismaniac-if/

You might be a Charismaniac if…
1.You think it’s normal that your pastor owns the church.

2.Most of the sermons you hear are about money – getting more of it.

3.Most sermons are based on Old Testament texts, or single verses plucked out of the New Testament, particularly III John 1:2.

4.You think it’s normal to give a pastor a standing ovation.

5.You think it’s normal for a pastor to take up birthday offerings for himself or his wife.

6.You think the “Gospel” is mostly about the good things God will do for you on this earth, right now.

7.You keep hearing that there is a huge “end-times” revival right around the corner.

8.You’ve been taught that, in conjunction with this “end-times” revival, Christians are going to get richer and richer.

9.You believe that the best way to receive a miracle is to “sow a seed,” which means give a large offering you can’t afford.

10.You believe certain people – your pastor, and other leaders with large ministries – are specially “anointed” and hear directly from God.

11.You don’t bat an eye when you hear your pastor say, “God told me…”

12.Your pastor has bodyguards.

13.Your pastor drives a car worth more than most people’s houses.

14.The only people with any authority on your church’s staff are either the pastor, or someone who shares his last name.

15.Your pastor didn’t go to seminary.

16.But he calls himself “Doctor.”

17.Your pastor’s wife is also a pastor and goes by the title of “First Lady.”

18.Anyone related to your pastor is also “anointed.” And this “anointing” is transferrable by marriage, so that your pastor’s kids’ spouses begin sporting the title of “Pastor.”

19.There is special reserved seating for people particularly close to the pastor.

20.When you see your pastor up close, you get as tongue-tied and as star-struck as if you’d run into your favorite movie star.

21.If you found out your pastor and his wife were coming to visit you, you’d immediately feel an urgent need to remodel your house and buy all new furniture.

22.But that would be a pipe dream, because your pastor never visits anyone except for a select few who have been with his ministry for years. Or new people who have given huge donations.

23.Your pastor calls himself “Apostle.”

24.Your pastor calls himself “Prophet.”

25.Your pastor preaches that prophecy is for today…but only HE is allowed to prophesy.

26.You’ve been going to your church for more than a year, but you still don’t really know anyone there very well.

27.You do, however, feel like you know your pastor pretty well.

28.There is fierce competition for seats in the first few rows of the auditorium. You get to church a half hour early to secure one of those seats.

29.New people are treated with suspicion. “New people” is anyone who has been at your church less time than you have.

30.Your church has very few small-group Bible studies or other supplementary classes. Very few people are allowed to teach at your church, except those who either A) have the same last name as your pastor; or B) are really, really bad at teaching. If someone happens to slip into group “B” but turns out to be good at teaching, he or she will probably never teach again.

31.Although you’d never be able to guess from your church’s official statement of faith, the practical reality is that everybody puts more stock in “The Anointing” (particularly as it exists within your pastor) than they do in the message of salvation. Salvation is your ticket to heaven, but “The Anointing” is where all the “good stuff” comes from.

32.Your church talks a LOT about physical healing. They even hold “Healing Services” and have healing lines. But nobody ever jumps out of a wheelchair. Rather, a few people get healed from stuff like back pain and migraines.

33.Although to hear everyone talk, you’d think that crowds were re-growing amputated limbs and snapping out of Down Syndrome.

34.There is a lot more prestige associated with volunteer positions like washing the pastor’s car or opening the door for him than there is with working in the children’s ministry.

35.Your pastor talks a lot about how he’s your spiritual father, your covering, and your head.

36.You find yourself aspiring to dress and live like the pastor and his family, although you don’t have the money to do so.

37.You are encouraged NOT to think. Analytical thought is scorned. “The Anointing” trumps all need for theology, education, or anything else that would involve the logical part of your brain.

38.Your pastor’s sermons begin with, “God told me…” and involve your pastor then going on to explain how what God told him is supported by various Bible verses. These verses, in their original context (which is never discussed), have NOTHING to do with what your pastor is saying, but they do contain a key word from the message that “God gave” your pastor.

39.Your pastor is in complete control of everything and answers to no one. If there IS an elder or deacon board, the board meets only to fulfill IRS requirements and consists of men hand-picked by the pastor who will agree with whatever the pastor tells them.

40.Your pastor dreams of being famous and expends much effort (and cash) to buddy up to already-famous ministries…regardless of whether or not they agree on key doctrines like the trinity.

41.Your church’s offering envelopes have a place for giving by credit card. You are also taught that the best way to become financially stable is to “give your way out of debt.”

42.You begin to notice that the list of “regular attenders” seems to change all the time. People will attend every service faithfully for months or even years and then suddenly disappear forever. Your pastor spends a lot of time talking about how these folks are in rebellion, and how you will keep yourself from receiving “your blessing” if you listen to them.

43.You are taught all the time that you are “blessed,” which generally means that you will live in financial “overflow” and have “favor” over all areas of your life. Sometimes this “favor” seems to mean that you expect people to bend the rules for you…as evidenced by prayer requests like, “Pray for my nephew as he faces drug charges, pray that he will find favor with the judge, and if anyone knows anyone in the D.A.’s office, please call us.”

Cult Leader Thinks He’s Jesus

“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand.

“Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it.   — Matthew 24:23 – 26 —

When asked questions, this messiah’s answers were vague and nonsensical.

When asked what was his favorite food: “It would be difficult for me to say something you would understand. I interpret things differently.”

Seems to me like the real Jesus, who knows all things, would be able to describe to a puny little human being in a way where he would understand. This is a tactic to make one’s self appear much more important, much more evolved than the average human being. But the truth of the matter is, this jesus is nothing but a mere man, who has found ways to deceive many people.

When asked by the interviewer, “Just meeting me briefly, can you tell me any thing about my soul?”

“I can feel a person, but can not define the features. They are undefined. It depends upon what you want to hear.”

You mean to tell me that Jesus would not be able to see and know all things about one’s soul?

I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. — John 10:14 — (Jesus)

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. — John 10:27 —

“If you could tell one bit of advice, that of yours here, could follow, relatively easy, what would it be?”

“Do not try to be superior among the people around you. That intention leads to death.”

In other words: “It is ok for me to be worshipped. But you, you must submit yourself to my every ordinance while I live as a king/messiah among you.”

Very hypocritical, don’t you think?

Actually, in some ways, this is not any worse than what is going on in a lot of mainstream churches of today. Some people have made their pastor an idol, becoming totally dependent upon him for every word. They get so involved in church and church activities they have no room for anything else in their life. If that too is not cultic, I don’t know what it is.

vice:
Deep in Siberia’s Taiga forest is Vissarion, a cult leader who looks like Jesus and claims to be the voice of God. He’s known as “the Teacher” to his 4,000 followers, who initially seem surprisingly normal. Over time, however, their unflinching belief in UFOs and the Earth’s imminent demise made this group start to look more and more like some sort of strange cult.

IHOP is DANGEROUS! Stephanie’s testimony

5 Comments

If you do not know what IHOP is, please watch and be aware. If you do know what IHOP is and are in it, please watch and beware. This is a cult to the core. I can only try and imagine the mind-control she was being forced to swallow. However, she was able to discern for herself. Thank God, she stood and was brought out of it. I wonder how many more families have been torn apart by this demonic cult.

False Prophet Harold Camping says Millions will die on May 21, 2011

For anyone who may be worrying if May 21, 2011 is the day of judgment, Do not fear man’s delusions and lies. If Jesus said of the end of time, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” (Matthew 24:36), then why oh why are we to take the word of man?

You see, cults are made of such stuff.

seedsofgrace:

These things bring reproach for the true believer of Christ when the world (media) calls these fanatics christians. A true believer will not swallow everyhting that comes down the pike. They will test things according to the word of God and they will not fear the rebuke of man for doing so, they would rather walk alone than walk among those who are not taking the time to discern by the Word of God. 

By the way, Terry Jones (the famous pastor in favor of making a big issue of burning the Koran), was a date setter before he got all the attention. He was nothing more than just a little old man sitting at his kitchen table setting dates to the end of the world. They came and went. I would love to be able to know what some of his followers who have left him have to say.

Is Your Church a Cult?

3 Comments

I may have this up somewhere else on the blog, but can not find it. However, I want to use it to point out that many of the things in this video are the very things that a lot of churches use. If you are experiencing any of these things in your church, please ask God to give you HIS discernment, test everything that is goes on around you. If something does not feel quite right, it just may be the Lord trying to show you what is going on behind the veil of deceit.

Please note: NOT every church or those in the ministry are out to decieve. Sometimes they may not even know what they do. In that case, try asking God to show you what to do and what to speak concerning any concerns you may have.

Last Days: False Christs, Occult Invasion & Sexual Perversion

Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, — 1 Timothy 4:1 —

“There are so many today in the New Age movement who are claiming to be the messiahs, claiming to be channeling the wisdom of the messiahs…”

“…the lies men will believe once they have rejected the truth.”

“One of the greatest deceptions occuring in our time, is happening in the name of Christianity, as people are embracing a form of Christianity based on extra-biblical experiences.”

“We see the rise of satanic worship.”
