“Oh yes, I did lay my own hands on Joyce Meyer’s bible & teaching notes & prayed for an impartation of that teaching anointing & revelation.”
“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,” 2 Corinthians 6:17 (KJV)
One reason for the rapid growth of the Hillsong “church” corporation has been it’s willingness to make their church services indistinguishable from your average rock concert and laser light show. Start with 45 minutes of Christian rock “worship”, sprinkle a few minutes of heart-felt “easy believism” and “come get your blessings” emotional manipulation, close with using the Old Testament tithing command to the Jews only to drain their wallets, and viola! Thanks for coming to Hillsong, see you next week. But it doesn’t end there.
Christine Caine, a Hillsong bible teacher and evangelist, was recently speaking at the same event as bible perverter Joyce “ye are little gods” Meyer. Caine laid hands on Joyce Meyer’s bible and speaking notes, and asked the universe to magically transfer the same (demonic) anointing that’s on Meyer to herself. This is not Biblical Christianity, this is New Age spiritualism. Her exact words were:
““Oh yes, I did lay my own hands on @joycemeyer bible & teaching notes & prayed for an impartation of that teaching anointing & revelation. It was a privilege & honor to shadow her this past week. Far more is “caught” than is ever “taught” in life!” source Instagram
Now, in case you are not aware, this is more in line with witchcraft and spell casting then it is with old-fashioned Bible teaching. In fact, the idea that you can impart this sort of thing was tried in the book of Acts, and roundly rebuked.
“Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.” Acts 8:17-20 (KJV)
When Christine Caine Met Joyce Meyer:
Contrary to the Charismatic teaching that faith is more “caught than taught”, a real and abiding faith in God’s word comes from daily study of His word, as commanded in 2 Timothy 2:15, and then a prayerful application of what you have read and believed. If any Bible teacher that you listen to or follow is engaging in this type of New Age “christianity”, then you need to stop following that false teacher and get back to someone who will give you Bible doctrine.
The fact that Hillsong allows this type of quackery to go on within it’s church tells you everything you need to know about what and how they believe. I will close with this now-prophetic quote from the great 19th century preacher Charles Haddon Spurgeon, who saw this day coming:
“A time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats.” – C.H. Spurgeon
Amen, brother, though thou be dead you yet speaketh. Even so, come Lord Jesus.
