Leaving the NAR Church: Carter’s Story.

churchwatch central

Our good friend and fellow polemicist Amy Spreeman, contributor to Pirate Christian Radio, continues with the 11th article in her series about those who found themselves in this dreadful bondage, and what happened when their eyes were opened.

Chris Rosebrough “It’s tough to watch friends fall for a false religion. This is good encouragement to stay the course”

Carter has watched his dear friends fall hard for the counterfeit promises of a most dangerous deception. He has allowed me to share his story as part of a series on the practices and beliefs of the New Apostolic Reformation, or NAR.

In this series, I want to take readers beyond the textbook What is the New Apostolic Reformation Movementexplanation, into the personal experiences from those who have been there, and what happened when God opened their eyes to the truth.

“After their prophecies, visions, and declarations were all proven false…

Regret or Repentance? (Poirier)

The Reformed Reader

The Peacemaking Pastor: A Biblical Guide to Resolving Church Conflict by [Poirier, Alfred J.] The Apostle talks about the difference between regret (worldly sorrow) and repentance (godly sorrow) in 2 Corinthians 7:9-10.  He doesn’t give a lot of detail there, but thinking of Paul’s words, other Scripture, and life’s experiences, more can be said about regret versus repentance.  Alfred Poirier does a nice job explaining the difference:

Regret and repentance differ with respect to God and self.  Regret is a result of fearing man, whereas repentance is the fruit of fearing God.  Fear of man is a snare, says Solomon (see Prov. 29:25), and one of the ways it snares us is by fostering in us a sense of regret.  We regret that others have found out about us and that we have been exposed.  In response, we run from God and attempt to cover and protect ourselves from the penetrating gaze of others, just as Adam ran from God and hid himself…

Leaving the NAR Church: Jared’s Story.

Chris Rosebrough “These spiritual warfare sessions are common in New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) churches and are gaining popularity in mainstream Evangelical churches.”

Our good friend and fellow polemicist Amy Spreeman, contributor to Pirate Christian Radio, presents the 10th article in her series about those who found themselves in this dreadful bondage, and what happened when their eyes were opened.

“The deliverance ministry counselor told my wife to close her eyes and allow the demons to speak through her. He explained that each demon has a name, and if bound “by the blood” must be truthful and submissive.”

Jared and his wife had been experiencing what they called demonic thoughts, and sought help through a spiritual deliverance ministry. These spiritual warfare sessions are common in New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) churches and are gaining popularity in mainstream Evangelical churches. Spiritual warfare is one of the hallmarks of the NAR movement. A helpful…

Obama Advertising for Interns for His Shadow Government

Absolute Truth from the Word of God


When presidents leave the White House, ordinarily they return to their home state and get on with their lives. Some have built libraries and even museums to enrich the history of our country for U.S. citizens.  But not so for Barack Hussein Obama.

Barack and Michelle have moved to a mansion not two miles from the White House.  The reason given for this unusual move, was that their daughter needed to complete her education in the school she has been attending.  Sounds good, right?  Like most of what BHO has told the American public – this is just not true.

Barack and Michelle are Hiring Interns

As leader of the so-called “Shadow Government” BHO is calling the shots for the resistance – those who are disrupting and protesting across the country. If anyone believes that these protestors will eventually fade away, they are deluded.

Everything that BHO does is calculated.

The Righteous Brothers

Daily Devotions

Is anyone righteous? Is there one without blame? Can a holy man be found? Do we know any worshiper anywhere who can be considered one wholly following the Lord? The answer is both “no” and “yes.”

There is none righteous, not even one. Across the globe, whether religious or irreligious, whether moral or immoral, whether respectable or without respect, there is not a man who is holy, righteous, and blameless. There never has been and never will be one who wholly follows the Lord. All are sinful. All are duplicitous. All are corrupt. All are guilty of breaking God’s good and holy law. All are unrighteous.

There is one righteous, and his name is Jesus Christ. He is the holy and sinless one. His record is spotless and without blemish. He is the one who can honestly say, “I have loved the Father with all my heart, all my soul, all my strength…

Dealing with Abusive Men

My Only Comfort

Thoughts on Psalm 129, from a sermon preached at First Reformed Church, February 9, 2014.

Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say:
2 Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.
3 The plowers plowed upon my back: they made long their furrows.
4 The LORD is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
5 Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.
6 Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withereth afore it groweth up:
7 Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.
8 Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of the LORD be upon you: we bless you in the name of the LORD. (Psa 129:1-8 KJV)

This is a psalm about evil…

Leaving the NAR Church: Tom’s story.

churchwatch central

Our good friend and fellow polemicist Amy Spreeman, contributor to Pirate Christian Radio, presents the 9th article in her series about those who found themselves in this dreadful bondage, and what happened when their eyes were opened.

“I gathered her up in my arms and went forward, excited and hopeful that my little grandchild was going to receive a MIRACLE. I really believed, in that moment, that this fellow actually had some kind of special anointing that would assure that the baby would get healed.”

Ever been promised a special “Word from the Lord,” during a revival conference? Or an immediate healing by someone commanding that God cooperate?  That’s what Tom experienced seven years ago in Canada.  Tom’s experience with some big-name New Apostolic Reformation celebrates gave him a unique window into how these so-called miracles work.

In this series, I want to take readers beyond the textbook What is…

True Christian unity

Possessing the Treasure

by Mike Ratliff

12 So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. 14 Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father. Colossians 3:12-17 (NASB)

The Holy War

Possessing the Treasure

by Mike Ratliff

1 Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him. 2 The Lord said to Satan, “The Lord rebuke you, Satan! Indeed, the Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?” Zechariah 3:1-2 (NASB) 

Is there a war going on between God and His forces on one side and Satan and his forces on the other? If you listen to certain preachers such as Joel Osteen you won’t hear anything about that. However, as we saw in this post several months ago, persecution is the natural result of teaching or preaching God’s Word without compromise. Of course the implication of that is to avoid persecution and stay out of “The Holy War” then all Christians need to do is compromise and be friends with the…

The Feminist Movement is Demonically Inspired

Absolute Truth from the Word of God


Even before I was born again, I knew that something about the Feminist movement was very wrong.  I wasn’t able to discern things as I am now. But I could see something in these women that was distasteful to me. I wanted nothing to do with them.

I remember watching Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan and others, screaming at women to “burn their bras” and to rule over men. As a matter of fact, they were also telling women that they did not need men – that men were inferior to them.

Garden of Eden and the Fall of Man 

“Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?”  The woman said to the serpent, “From the fruit of the trees of…

LIBERALS: If You Only Watch CNN and MSNBC – You Are Getting FAKE NEWS

Absolute Truth from the Word of God


Sometimes I just want to scream.  But it would scare the dogs and startle hubby, so I just ask the Lord to take this frustration away from me. And He does.

But then I look at the Facebook pages of members of my family and see things like:

“Trump is a Nazi”

“Trump will kill millions of Americans”

“Trump will use the nuclear code and cause WWIII”

“Trump is racist and hates hispanics”

“Trump is just a horrible person”

“Obama was so inspiring, but now we have a monster as president”

I’m probably going to get into trouble, but I couldn’t help myself. On the person’s page who said that Trump is a Nazi, I commented:

“Hmmmm……Trump’s son in law is an Orthodox Jew and his grandkids are being raised Jewish.”   And Trump has chosen his son in law to be Senior Adviser. Doesn’t sound like a Nazi.”

Hillsong cult promote dangerous NAR Bible: The Passion Translation

churchwatch central

The New Order of the Latter Rain (NOLR) / New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) cult started back in 1948. The Hillsong / Christian Life Center cult was established by Frank Houston back in the 1970s with the teachings of the NOLR. We have proven without a shadow of a doubt that Hillsong are a NOLR cult: they promote Latter Rain heresy, they have their infallible Apostles/Prophets who are accountable to no one, they have instrumental in promoting the false reformation/unity between Protestants and Roman Catholicism, and they are part of the NAR Apostle network.

The origins of Hillsong (Part 1): The New Order of the Latter Rain
The origins of Hillsong (Part 2): Hillsong founder under the “New Order” cult
