Patricia King: The Supernatural Hand of God

When I saw the title of this video, I knew there was no chance it would be Biblically sound.  Patricia King believes that God cannot work unless He has man to work through.  More to the point, she says God doesn’t do much without us – He needs the hands of man.

The God of the Bible is not the hypercharismatic god of Patricia King.  The god of Patricia King is subservient to man and man’s lustful, fleshly desires.  A genie in a bottle who has been captured, bound, and held in prison to our whims.  Does this sound like the God who parted the Red Sea and rose Jesus from the dead?

Hypercharismatics like Patricia King still don’t get it.  They don’t live a crucified life of repentance; they live a life of wanton spiritual lust.  It is not the Spirit of God that provokes them to seek after spiritual power and secret knowledge God never intended to share.  It is not the Spirit of God that prompts them to run after worldly goods instead of Jesus Christ and Him crucified and the riches of His glory.  The abundant riches of grace will never satisfy those who have a worldly heart filled with worldly hunger.

James 4:4  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

God doesn’t need man to work His wonderous works, but He has chosen to work through man, that is, through the foolishness of the word preached, to save souls.  There’s a big difference in God using man to share the gospel and Patricia King’s claim that God needs us in order to work. 

I bow before the God of Scripture, He doesn’t bow to me.  It’s not God’s will to pamper and cater my fleshly appetites and help me pave the way to Hell.  It’s God’s will that I grow in the grace and the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, and that means living a crucified life of repentance.  

I’m still waiting to hear hypercharismatics teach repentance and denial of self.  Think I should hold my breath?

    Patricia King is teaching ‘word of faith’ heresy. They believe that God couldn’t do anything on earth after the fall because satan now had the authority over the earth. People had to speak the right words so God could do something. The prophets spoke Jesus into existence. Now we have got the authority back when Jesus died on the cross (they don’t talk about the atonement, but a battle between Jesus and satan). And now God can do only thinks when we speak words of faith.

    Todd Bentley said something like that in Lakeland: ‘Thank God I have the gift of faith. When God doesn’t move, I move God’. (see the pride…)

    People who teach this heresy are Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Andrew Wommack and other WOF-teachers. They also believe we are little gods that can create things by speaking things into existence.

    When you take a close look at those teachings, they are the same as The Secret, the Law of Attraction.

  2. Teresa

    Amen, Amen, Amen Ruitje!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    When I began my research on WOF, and the root of where this movement came from I decided to check out Ohrah also. I did a google search on the main source of Oprah Winfrey teachings. Only to find out it is none other that New Thought teachings, which is the same root of WOF movement. You hit the nail on the head, Ruitje.
    Morminism, New thought, WOF, Freemasons, NAR, it is all interwoven and distorted. We must discern between what is right and almost right.
    Satan is forming his counterfeit christianity and his one world religion.

    May the LORD keep our eyes and our ears open to his truth and for us all to contine to love his truth.

    The mantle of Jonah?
    I thougt that allready existed in the Roman Catholic Church. Every bishop wears a mantle and a fish-head sheaped mitre….
    Deffenitly the mantle of Jonah!

    Sad that people really believe these things…

  4. eeellama

    This movement is based on what someone can get from God to serve their purposes. It’s all about magic formulas (witchcraft, really) intended to command God to be our divine servant.

    These folks have no clue about how we have broken God’s law, deserve God’s judgment and wrath, how we repent and put our faith in Jesus’ work on the cross, and die daily to follow Him. The other poster’s (Ruitje’s) link to Bob Jones repenting for Jonah (How exactly does one repent for another’s sin????) illustrates that they have NO concept of Biblical repentance, faith, salvation, etc.

    You’ll be holding your breath a very long time to hear these folks talk about genuine repentance or saving faith.

  5. Carolyn

    1 Cor. 1:17For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with words of human wisdom, LEST THE CROSS OF CHRIST BE EMPTIED OF ITS POWER.
    Christ the Wisdom and Power of God
    18For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
    Chrystal, better not hold your breath. They are too busy “training people how to live in the realm of the supernatural, how to know the supernatural God and the supernatural dimensions of the Kingdom of God.”
    In that whole “testimony” that Patricia read from one of her disciples, it was like “the force is with me” except he is using Christian jargon, so he substitued “the glory is with me”. Wow! Talk about the cross being emptied of it’s power. No crucified life for me thank you…just give me the glory!
    It’s a sad day, when “the glory” gets the spotlight and Christ is not even mentioned. The gospel IS Christ. The Holy Spirit came to reveal Christ to us, not the glory. But they have gone beyond Christ into a truly diabolical perversion of the gospel where instead of reflecting the glory of Christ, they reflect a glory that allows them to be marketplace geniuses and successful worldlings.
    Instead of being crucified, self is resurrected and becomes the shining star… a reflection of its own glory. Just another version of Satan’s lie, “you shall becomes as gods!”

    God is the Almighty King!

    Many of you know it takes a loooooong time to get that kind of crazy thinking out of our systems. When I think back and remember sitting under similar insane teaching, I feel such a lump in my throat– I become nauseated.

    I know what I’m saying sounds strong, but it has to be said–get away, run as fast as you can from the hypercharismatic garbage… please, please, please.

    Yes, you’ll cry and be lonely because no one from your church will talk to you anymore or you’ll be blacklisted, on and on. Sadly, many of the charismatic churches are so interconnected and intertwined with each other here on Long Island, it becomes almost impossible to feel safe anywhere, the slander is terrible!

    My husband and I are strong–it’s devastating for some; many die on the vine and that breaks the heart of God.

    I cried a river, friends, but God is faithful– remember that… God is faithful.

    With much love,

  7. David

    Amos 3:7. God doesn’t NEED human action, but in His desire and wisdom he chooses to not work without revealing himself to man. Why else would so many prophecies in the old testament end with “Then they will know that I am God” It’s is God’s desire that we would know Him and his ways, therefore he displays his power openly THROUGH people. Also, when the Spirit of God is with us, we have favor with God and Man. We don’t seek favor with Man, but when we have Favor with God, our favor in the world will increase as well (in step with our favor decreasing with those who refuse the cross of Jesus Christ) I know Patricia personally, and she is one of the most sound teachers on the scene. If you took the time to visit her website, you will see many beckon calls from her for the church to wake up and flee from false teaching, much like you. Blessings

      I would like you to tell the persecuted church overseas that. Those that haven’t two nickles to rub together, and those who are being martyred for their faith. How does that translate according to charismatic theology?

      As far as Patricia King being sound… let’s talk about that minty green angel she said dropped feathers in her home. I have no doubt that she’s a nice lady, and I don’t contend against her doctrine because he’s not nice… I contend against her doctrine because she’s a false teacher.

  8. David

    Jesus ended up being brutally murdered. Yet the bible says that during his life he had favor. As for your comment on the overseas church being persecuted: My uncle and aunt were brutally martyred in thailand for proclaiming the gospel. Before they died, my uncle spoke of how much favor he was receiving from the people he was ministering to. He had favor even until his death. It doesn’t mean you have favor with everyone, simply divine appointments with man. Now of course, to love God is to be hated by the world, but when God affects someones heart, and they give a believer favor, they have done something against the flow of the world. And Patricia King’s feather stories: How do you know it didn’t happen? Why on earth would the Son of God turn water into wine for people who were already drunk?

  9. eeellama

    David: I have spent a considerable amount of time reviewing Patricia King’s teachings, including such things as the signs and wonders she talks about.

    One example: One of the people I associated with (until I cut ties) spoke with me about the “gemstones falling from the sky” video that I had concerns about. I told her why I thought it was fake (as well as the gold dust, angel feathers, etc.). She told me that YES, she had firsthand knowledge that the video was fake (the gemstone found on the lawn was thrown in off camera), but that it didn’t matter to her.

    Patricia King is the Madame Cleo of this movement. Her teachings are clever deceptions which twist scripture. Her visions of “Swift”, her endorsement of Bob Jones, Todd Bentley, and so many other demonstrably false teachers/prophets shows she is an expert deceiver who is either knowingly lying, or completely deceived by Satan. You’ve been duped.

    The easiest test is to look objectively at what these folks focus on. Do they focus on personal repentance, salvation by grace through faith alone, Christ crucified for our sins, dying daily and carrying the corss, or do they concentrate on what people can get from “God”? The gospel that comes from these false teachers is one of building a kingdom on earth by signs and wonders, and really doesn’t even require a crucified Christ for our sins.

    I can tell you this. If it looks like a circus stage act, God isn’t in it.

  10. David

    If it’s a circus act God’s not in it? What if someone came out and prophesied naked for three years? That was God. What if someone said they wrestled with God? That was God. It’s interesting that the son of man came eating and drinking, and the world saw him has a glutton and a drunkard. And what is the cross? What is the purpose of the cross? The principles you mention are the very foundation of our faith, but we are pressing on into the Remah word of God in correlation with the Logos.
    Hebrews 6
    1Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death,[a] and of faith in God,

  11. David

    This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God,

      Matthew 7:22-23:

      22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
      23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

      Not everyone who goes about professing to be teachers of the Lord are actually saved. The people referenced in the verse above did everything they did in the name of Jesus, yet He said He never knew them. The ones He does know are these:

      Matthew 7:24-27:

      24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
      25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not; for it was founded upon a rock.
      26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
      27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

      Patricia King’s doctrine is extra-Biblical and therefore cannot be sound.

  12. David

    Jesus did extra biblical things. Extra biblical is not anti biblical. Altar calls are extra biblical. Meeting in church on sunday morning is extra biblical. The bible in one book is extra biblical. Blogs like this are extra biblical. Denominations are extra biblical. Salvation prayers are extra biblical. The list goes on and on. Every miracle that has ever happened has been “extra” biblical, but not anti-biblical. Just because no one was healed of cancer in the bible, does that mean God can’t do it? Extra biblical simply means it wasn’t mentioned in the bible, but AGREES with the principles and things spoken through the word. So there is never a salvation prayer mentioned in the bible, does that mean it is evil and of the Devil? I don’t think so.. Also, i spoke with Patricia once, and she quoted the first verse you mentioned. She told me “It’s all about intimacy with God. If you aren’t close to him, the miracles mean nothing.”

    1. Chrystal Whitt Post author

      One more time, and if you don’t answer, you’ll get the boot. We can discuss, but not if you won’t address the issues. What about Patricia King’s minty green angel?

      And your post proves to me that you do not allow the Scriptures to be your sole source of truth.

  13. David

    Where was paul’s “Heavenly encounter” ever mentioned in scripture? When did God ever tell you to start this blog in scripture? Where were the angels that great leaders such as Jonathan Edwards and George Whitfield saw? It’s just as foolish to ignore an Angel as it is to worship one.

    1. Chrystal Whitt Post author

      Where is the car you drive mentioned in Scripture? Where is your deodorant mentioned in Scripture? This conversation has degenerated into the absurd. You aren’t willing to answer questions, but are willing to argue, unscripturally at that, all the reasons you believe we should accept extra-biblical revelation.

      You are no longer welcome to post here.

  14. Ruitje

    @David, don’t look for signs and miracles, look for the real Jesus Christ. I once followed the teachings of Patricia King, but I thank God He opened my eyes right in time. People who follow signs and wonders will be the ones who will fall for the anti-christ who can do also a lot of signs and wonders, but the source is not God. Even satan can show up as an angel of light. Don’t look for angels.

    So don’t follow signs and miracles, follow Jesus Christ (not for the signs, but for what He did at the cross: taking the punishment you and I deserved and giving us eternal life).

  15. Teresa

    @ David
    Ruitje and Chrystal are correct.
    Pray for the LORD to open your eyes completely and your heart to the truth. We as true believer’s are not to have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness. Patricia King is in darkness, look at her eyes. The bible is very clear on what we as believer’s are to do; Mark them, flee from them, have no fellowship with them, take heed, beware, many more scriptures.
    Many false prophets believe that Jesus came in the flesh, Benny Hinn does but he is still a false prophet.
    You are justifying them by what you consider extra=biblical revelation. When they say God told me, an angel told me, and so forth, you better flee. I have heard a lot of them say I know you can not find it in the bible but God told me, you better get away from them. Also, when they say this is going to shock you but……………..God told me, you better not listen.

    Jesus only did what the father did and only said what the father said. Jesus did not do extra-biblical things.
    David you are wrong, extra-biblical is anti-biblical. If it is not in the word of God you better flee from it.

  16. Teresa

    @ Chrystal
    I am confused!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Is this the same David that lost his niece or it this a Different David. On you post Patricia King- Media mountain has to be taken. David posted comments there only with a different twist. I guess I am confused as to why he has changed his mind and defend her now. Same David or different David.

  17. Teresa

    @ DAvid
    I read your comments and I am left scratching my head. “You” are not biblical sound in the doctrine of Jesus Christ, nor is Patricia King sound.
    Patricia King is a false prophet and she defends false prophets like Todd Bentley. In 2008 when the Lakeland revival went bad, she blamed everyone but Todd. This man was having an adulteress affair with his nanny during this revival and excessively drinking.
    The New Apostolic Reformation group like Rick Joyner came to his rescue and now Todd is at it again. They never held him truly accountable for his sinful actions, no they say they restored him, then they released him to spread his cancer once again.

    In 2008 Slaughter of the Sheep did an article on this matter and here it is with the video of Patricia King blaming everyone else.

  18. Rev's. Kate & Rich M.

    Two years ago, our former church was huge on the Lakeland revival–the hullabaloo by the the ministry and the church “prophet” were laughable; all running to FL for a new move of God to bring back to Long Island, whoopee–then suddenly it all went suspiciously quiet, with nary a viable explanation or apology, that I can recall– I’m glad it went bust because it was bull!

    Let me tell you one thing, when God is real, we will benefit from it–for me it was– God literally tore us out from there. So, I see God does have a plan– to halt the move of hypocrisy and clean out the Thief’s den.

    The Lakeland fiasco, flew through that church like a wild fire, and we, Rich and I and a few others, almost fell for the garbage (they’re notorious for it)–you would think the pastors would have had a clue. In retrospect, they really are not, still, all ten or twelve of them, the brightest bulbs in the box anyway.

    Once, Tommy Zito, who was idolized–he “spoke in tongues” throughout one service, for at least an hour– we didn’t understand a darned thing–strutting about the sanctuary in his sunglasses and wild, pointy boots and quirky ways ( I love fashion, but he was way out there). We ran out and with visiting family, ashamed we even brought them there for a presumed visitation from God… baloney.

    That piano-banging false prophet, Kim Clement, still ministers there–what his purpose is, I still can’t figure that one out; God knows, our former church has wreaked enough havoc and destroyed enough lives from false teachings, it’s terrible.

    That’s what we’ll get for wanting signs, wonders and miracles instead of running towards God’s Son and His word for His purpose for our lives… ridiculous.

    I can go on and on and one day I’m sure it’ll all come out in the wash–and how these people don’t answer to the IRS, or gone to jail is beyond me… it’s crazy!

    And here we are, slanderized, banned and called difficult– one pastor, the head of family ministry, with a degree in psychology tried– tried is the word– to pit my husband against me and show him that I was being difficult and too out spoken, and mostly “the problem”–of course I corrected him strongly, which he didn’t appreciate.
    Great family pastor, huh?

    As we opened our meeting, the Bishop’s conference table was filthy with fingerprints on the glass table, a used Dunkin’ Donuts container was left and the chairs were in complete disarray; guess we weren’t important enough to have a clean, tidy meeting in a multi-million dollar ministry’s conference room.

    The family pastor, he called me “babe”! Can you imagine a founding pastor calling a woman congregant that, with my husband there–how stupidly presumptuous of him to think he would be so comfortable to address me as “babe” and get away with it–we remained calm and let him bury himself in utter contradiction and foolishness. He did apologize– he must have thought I was some dumb bimbo– I had been there over 25 years; I know too much about them and God’s word; we had served in ministry and he still had no idea as to common respect and good manners.

    Apparently he is lacking in knowledge as to how to handle a woman, someone’s wife and a sister in Christ…deplorable– disrespest is very real there.

    We let him know we do not want junk and filthy lies pawned off as God’s word preached over the pulpit to unsuspecting sheep. That flew over like a lead balloon.

    I will always love and care for them, but they’re wolves.

    I will not be fooled by seemingly sweet words while from their mouths, fresh blood drips–and that’s what I discern from these ministries –spiritual murder! K
