Juanita Bynum: A Prime Example of 1 Timothy 2:12

Watch as Juanita Bynum winds up the crowd, and herself, to the point that she hits the floor.  Yes, I said “Juanita Bynum winds up the crowd,” and I said that because it’s Juanita Bynum and her false doctrine doing it, it’s not the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is not this wicked.

Notice in all of her yelling, tongue-talking, and grandstanding, she never teaches the clear truth of Scripture.  Not once.

When you watch the video, I want you to pay attention to how many women are on the stage and in the audience.  Noting that, and it’s results, is it any wonder the apostle Paul wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit:

1 Timothy 2:11-15:

11 Let a woman quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness.  12 But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.  13 For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve.  14 And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being quite deceived, fell into transgression.  15 But women shall be preserved through the bearing of children if they continue in faith and love and sanctity with self-restraint.

This is the nonsense you get when you willfully disobey Scripture.

I don’t see much self-restraint or Biblical doctrine here.  Do you?

Cindy Jacobs: Authority Over the Weather

In this video, Cindy Jacobs says, “We can take authority over the weather if we know what to do.”

Well, there ya go.  Even the weather itself proves Cindy Jacobs is a false prophet whose word can not be believed.  Where was Jacobs when Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee went through?

Take her claims with a grain of salt.  On second thought, less than a grain of salt.  At least a grain of salt has some substance.  Jacobs’ prophecies do not.

Manasseh Jordan: Self Promotion and Exaltation

In these two videos, Manasseh Jordan talks about himselfhis power, his knowledge, him, him, him.  He speaks of all the ways the power works through him.  If you want a lesson about self-promotion, look at Manasseh Jordan.  He doesn’t need to hire a marketing firm because no one could advertise for him more than himself.

Shouldn’t a minister of the gospel speak of Jesus once in a while?  Jesus doesn’t even get an honorary mention here.

There are some classic ways you can spot a false prophet, but one sure way you can tell is by hearing who he spends the most time talking about.  If a man claims to be a prophet and only talks about himself and how wonderful and powerful he is… he’s a false prophet.

Stephen Choate: Receive a Prophecy – For a Price!

I received this tidbit in e-mail from a reader (thanks, M. Hellema).  I want to introduce you to Stephen Choate (for those of you who don’t know him).  If you’ll click over to his website, which is entitled, “Speak God Speak,” what you’ll find is a prophet for profit.

Choate, a friend of E. Bernard Jordan, promises that you can receive a personal prophecy from him if you register for his online conference.  There’s a catch, though – you have to pay for it.  Well, to be fair, you have to pay to attend the conference, but what’s the difference?  No money, no prophecy.  Here’s the proof  – At Choate’s “Receive a Prophecy” page, if you click on the “Register Now” button, it takes you to a Pay Pal screen where you see the online conference listed, and right beside of it is the price…. $125.00!  You can also pay via debit or credit card.  Now, I don’t know if that’s the cost of just that one conference, or if you get full access for paying that amount, but that’s not the point.  The point is that this man is another false prophet who is using the Word of God as a money grubbing scheme.

Here is what your $125.00 will get you:

Perhaps one of the most frightening things I found on Choate’s site is found in this self-promoting paragraph:

Stephen named the exact week of Michael Jackson’s death. We have researched all information presented by Television, Radio and Internet. Stephen is the only individual in the world that we know of who made this specific prediction to these specific dates as he mentioned the last week of June in the year 2009 nearly seven months prior. This is very unique and proves by fulfillment that there is something unusual, unique and different about Stephen. Just think. He is the only one who made this precise prediction. There are nearly seven billion people who walk the face of the planet and Stephen is the only individual who is known to have made this prediction. Now anyone can make there presentation known as it pertains to tomorrow’s time line. But to get it exactly right is unique. God is with Stephen. Believe in Stephen(source)

Yes, you read that right… believe in STEPHEN.

Michael Jackson’s death isn’t the only prediction Choate’s site uses as examples to exhibit his power.  If you hover over the “Secrets of the World with Stephen” tab, you see his other prophetic claims.  He claims he had prophetic foresight into:

  1. Patrick Swayze’s death
  2. Oprah ending her show
  3. Simon Cowell leaving American Idol
  4. Tiger Woods’ marital infidelity
  5. Justin Bieber’s meteoric rise to stardom

But, his prophetic prowess isn’t just exclusive to the world of entertainment, here are some other words of knowledge he says the Lord gave him:

  1. Circuit City Closing
  2. Blockbuster Video Closing
  3. Investing in silver and gold

However, if you actually click on the “Secrets of the World with Stephen” tab, it will take you to a page entitled, “Secrets of the World,” where he gives forty prophecies he says he prophesied in advance (with no hindsight involved), and their fulfillment.  Some of these prophecies are absurd.  For instance, he says he prophesied these things (among many others):

  1. The San Francisco Giants would win the world series in 2010
  2. The LA Lakers would win the NBA championship in 2010
  3. The Chicago Blackhawks would win the Stanley Cup in 2010
  4. Starbucks Coffee company would change their logo

Sounds more like a bookie or a tabloid psychic than a prophet of God, doesn’t he?  I’m just wondering what significance these things can possibly have when it comes to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

But back to Choate’s supposed prophecies….there is a problem here… there is no video or written proof that these prophecies were given by Choate, as far as I can see, before they actually occured.  Instead, this is what Choate offers as proof:

“All prophetic words were given before they came to pass. There is absolutely no hindsight applied. No misleading affect to public perception. Verification can be backed up by individuals who are trusted sources. Who have integrity and who walk with God. These are just 40 verified reports. We do not tell you these items of truth to get you to sign up. We tell you such information so that your confidence would be gained. If you never sign up for anything we will still do our best to help you in any which way we can. No matter what we are here to help you and thank you so much for coming to our ministry page. We appreciate you. In regards to verification you can also contact our secretary at (508) 816-6696 who will confirm that these reports are valid. We realize they seem hard to believe. However they are true. We would never intentionally mislead the public into thinking that Stephen is gifted when he is not. We will tell you that he is gifted because we have witnessed these events unfolding. Some of us have witnessed several events while others have witnessed other events.Testimony is valid. These claims are valid. Only the ignorant will tell you we made them up. Only the foolish will react with negativity towards our claim. Our claim is valid. Rock solid valid. If you don’t believe us. Don’t sign up. We have nothing to lose and wish you the absolute best.”  (source) (emphasis mine)

So, no, there is no video or written proof that these prophecies are valid, or more specifically, that they were given before these events occured.  They are only being backed up by “individuals who are trusted sources” of this man’s ministry.  That’s hardly an unbiased and fair witness, wouldn’t you say?  If you still don’t believe it after being told Choate’s friends are witness to these propetic utterances and you still need verification, call his secretary….she’ll tell you it’s true.  If you still don’t believe and react negatively towards his claims, you are foolish. 

What I find on Choate’s site is much self-promotion to verify what a powerful man of God he wants his followers to believe he is.  But where is Jesus?  Where are the sermons about the gospel being the true power of God unto salvation to those who believe?  Where are sermons about repentance from sin and living a life of repentance?

Discernment in the church is at an all time low and will go lower.  We can gauge how lacking it is by the fact that men like Choate can actually pull in $125.00 a piece from blind followers who look to him to hear a Word from God instead of reading the Bible and getting the infallible truth from God Himself.

Avoid this man at all costs.

Manasseh Jordan: Self-Promotion is the Key to Success

Manasseh Jordan has some serious delusions of grandeur going on.  His self-promotion is antithetical to the humble spirit exhibited by the apostle Paul who sought to know nothing but Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

Manasseh Jordan serves Manasseh Jordan, as is evidenced by the following video.  We don’t have to ponder how wonderful he thinks he is, he’ll tell us himself.

Joshua Mills and His School of Mysticism

Joshua Mills, who never ceases to completely shun Scripture in favor of mystical signs and wonders, had a school of aforementioned signs and wonders in Honolulu, Hawaii, from June 21 to 26.  This was part of what he called the Intensified Glory Institute

There were three courses in this school.  They were:

Course 1 – Activating angels, the power of praise and worship, the three realms of the supernatural, third-day intercession, how to operate in creative miracles, flowing in signs and wonders, and experiencing realms of Heavenly glory.

Course 2 – More about activating angels, go even further into realms of Heavenly glory, understanding visions and dreams, and much more.

Course 3 (Advanced School of Miracles) – Miracle techniques, how to flow in the miracle realm, how to maintain your miracle (ya don’t wanna lose it, ya know), and how to activate the things you learn in the Word.

I’m sorry, but I can’t find anywhere in the Bible where the apostle Paul, or any of the other apostles, held glory schools, signs and wonders schools, or schools of the anointing.  It’s just not there.

I can show you where the apostle Paul said “For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified,” and it can be found right there —->  1 Corinthians 2:2; but, there were no glory schools, miracle techniques, or seminars on how to activate angels.  It’s just not there.  But, then again, Joshua Mills is a heretic.  Should we really be surprised?

E. Bernard Jordan: Prophets Prophesying Falsely

Have you ever noticed that when false prophets prophesy, they say that the things they are prophesying about will happen in a way “you have never seen before?”  Yet, there is no visible witness that their word has come to pass, and God’s power isn’t being vulgarly displayed through the signs and wonders they predict will happen.  While the deceived are watching for signs and wonders, those who are truly spiritually discerning can see that deception is escalating at a mind-numbing clip.

In this video, E. Bernard Jordan, father of Manasseh Jordan, prophesies about teachers leaving classrooms, America becoming bilingual, men dressed in green, dogs upon the ropes (don’t ask me), the mantle of the prophet coming upon the scene in a way never seen before (see, there it is), anointed men and women being placed in the forefront because new revelation will come forth, and a change in the way church is done.  It will no longer be done the way it has been done in the past.

He then prophesies that those who want to start businesses need to have them incorporated before the end of 2010, because the rules are going to change from 2011 and beyond because there will be changes in economic structures, changes in immigration, changes in health care (you don’t have to be a false prophet to know that), and even a rapid change in currency.  Such changes that, once they come, you will be living life on a whole different level (there it is again).  But, he tells the people not to fear, because the Lord has said He will sit among them in His tabernacle, and they will witness His plan like they have never known (yep, there it is….again).

His speech becomes more ridiculous as it goes along.  He predicts that people will see and hear God in the wind, new discoveries will be made in science and technology, a shifting in industry, commerce coming out of Africa, businesses setting up in nations you have never heard of by name, a resetting of the “clock” on the continent of Africa, great shifting of governments in 2012 (perhaps he’s referring to election day), and the emerging of radical voices and radical faith.  He then goes on to say there will be an emerging of a new generation of believers who won’t look like “church” but will instead look like “the street” and people won’t know by looking at them that they are from the church.  He says these believers will be a new army of radical believers who will be radical thinkers.

In all of his much speaking, he never speaks of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  He has much to say about business, government, and everything but the truth of Scripture.  While they want new revelation, none will be given to them because God revealed Himself and His redemptive plan for mankind through His Son, Christ Jesus.  Everything revolves around Jesus.  Everything.

I shake my head when I think that people actually believe men like Jordan speak for God.  They’re setting the bar pretty low, wouldn’t you say?
