But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies... And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. 2nd Peter 1,3
The Word of God explicitly WARNS us that in the latter times, false prophets would arise in significant numbers... And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many (Matthew 24:11).
1st Timothy 4:1,2 state, Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron. There is NO bigger group of LIARS today than the Charismatic crowd. From The 700 Club to Benny Hinn, they are all a bunch of lying hypocrites!
The Charismatic Movement is extensive, being compromised of hundreds of varying denominations, including Pentecostal, and Assemblies of God Churches.
ABOVE: The Charismatic practices of Holy Laughter and Being Slain in the spirit are demonic. No such foolishness is taught in the Word of God. Rather, we read in 1st Corinthians 14:40... Let all things be done decently and in order. There is nothing "decent" about falling on the floor during a church service and laughing uncontrollably like an idiot.
Snake and fire handler, Junior McCormack, A false prophet!
Some preachers have greatly misunderstood the Bible, when Mark 16:18 states... They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. These were sign gifts given ONLY to the Apostles. This is clearly evidenced by the FACT that Paul couldn't heal his friend Timothy (1st Timothy 5:23), nor could he heal Trophimus (2nd Timothy 4:20).
It is also further evidenced by the FACT that not one preacher alive today can empty out the local hospital of sick people. We know from James 5:15 that God DOES still heal the sick in response to prayers of faith, but no one has a gift of healing today. For an excellent in-depth Biblical exegesis on this topic, please read FACE TO FACE WITH TONGUES by Pastor Max D. Younce.
The tongues-speaking of Charismatics today is 100% different than the gift of tongues which were spoken back in Bible times. In the Bible, God always initiated the miracle of tongues, and not men. It always involved known, established, earthly languages; not some unknown jibber-jabber! Today's speaking-in-tongues is practiced by a bunch of apostate religious clowns. It's a devil's circus of religious freaks and mutants! It is tragic that churches today have become entertainment centers with giant projection screens, movies, and where talent is glorified more than the Words of God. Benny Hinn's crusades are similar to Rock concerts, and Hinn the idolatrous rock star. People fall for that stuff big time!
Fake Healer Benny Hinn
False prophet, Benny Hinn!
Benny Hinn is an ecumenical nightmare! Whereas Billy Graham has yoked apostate Protestants once again with Rome; Benny Hinn has yoked the Charismatic Movement with the demonic Catholic Church. Here's proof that Benny Hinn is a Catholic. Hinn proudly stated, My upbringing, of course, was Catholic in that I attended the Catholic school in Jaffa, Israel. And so my mentality basically is a Catholic mentality. When I was born again, I was Catholic in my ways. I was very Catholic in my ideas, in my behavior. (Christianity Today, Sept. 3, 1991.)
Also, please read The Hidden Heresies of Benny Hinn.
Fake Healer Wayman Mitchell (The Door, Victory Chapel)
Wayman Mitchell and his ministries, THE DOOR and VICTORY CHAPEL are of the Devil. Former members have reported being bullied, publicly humiliated and swindled out of their money. Their ministers are known for openly attacking people who are not members of their cult. I experienced such an attack myself, being told that it's my fault for having peripheral neuropathy (pain, tingling, puffiness and burning in arms and legs caused by nerve damage) because I had not attended their healing service. I can't think of anything more cruel verbally than to tell a person with a health burden that it's their fault for not being a Charismatic. That is demonic false religion.
Such healing services have been proven to be fraudulent. I personally attended a Wayman Mitchell healing meeting and heard him speak in demonic tongues. He placed hands on people and claimed they had been instantly healed. All of the people allegedly healed were people who had claimed to have suffered from a back ache for 20-years, or difficulty hearing, or arthritis for 15-years (all symptoms that cannot be visibly confirmed if there were actually healing). This is standard practice for lying Charismatics who claim that healing happens at their meetings. It doesn't! Here's a powerful documentary film exposing the evils of televangelists! TV preachers are as bad (if not worse) than greedy lawyers!
I spoke with a Charismatic minister who became frustrated that I knew enough Bible to defend myself against his false doctrines. His pastor in Colorado is a Korean woman. They speak in tongues, teach that salvation can be lost, and hold healing services. When he saw that he couldn't convince me, he asked me if I had ever seen the blind to see, the deaf to hear and the lame to walk. Of course, no one has seen these things. No one! I know that because the Bible teaches that ONLY Jesus Christ is able to perform such miracles.
Jesus said if you don't believe His Words, then believe because of His works (because NO MAN ever did such works). This is important to understand! John 15:24, If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. No one today can do the works which Christ did. Criss Angel stated publicly that he walks on water and attempts to imitate Christ's miracles to disprove Jesus' deity. That's blasphemy against God!
Granted, Jesus said in John 14:12 that we'd do greater works than He did because He was going to the Father, but this does NOT include physically healing the sick. James 5:15 tells us that God will heal the sick (if it is His will) in response to the PRAYER OF FAITH; and not at the whim of some televangelist selling miracles. The following article evidences this truth from the Scriptures...
This is abundantly clear from numerous Scripture passages. By the end of the New Testament and the completion of the Bible in A.D. 96 with the Book of Revelation, all miracles of healing and tongues had forever ceased.
This looks like something from The Outer Limits...
