Everything You Need To Know About The End Times Cult Known As NAR, Or The New Apostolic Reformation

NAR and Dominion are a true fulfillment of Paul’s prophecy that in the last days there would be a great falling away from doctrinal, biblical Christianity.

Rightly dividing is the solvent that quickly dissolves the entire false premise on which Dominion Theology and NAR sit on. Both are a living fulfillment of Paul’s prophecy that in the last days there would be a great falling away from doctrinal, biblical Christianity.

What is NAR? It stands for a pseudo-Christian splinter group known as the New Apostolic Reformation, and they believe that they have been tasked with “bringing in the kingdom” and have been told by God to “take control” of earthly governments, financial institutions and to “overcome the world” for King Jesus. In short, they seek to bring in the Kingdom without waiting for the King to arrive in Revelation 19 at the Second Coming. (Read more from our friends at GotQuestions.org).

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:3,4 (KJV)

NAR is part of the larger movement known as Dominion Theology

During the primary elections in 2016, much was made of the fact that professing Christian Ted Cruz has a father, Rafael Cruz, who is a preacher and teacher in the Dominion/NAR movement. Here he is in a video “prophesying” that there will be a coming “wealth transfer from the “wicked to the righteous”. Isn’t it odd that nearly all charismatics have an unbreakable fixation with acquiring wealth and making money? (If you are reading this via email, click here to see video).

So here’s the main problem with NAR/Dominion theology, as well as a few other ‘smaller’ issues

Dominion Theology starts with a scripturally incorrect premise, Postmillennialism, and then makes a drastic left hand turn into full-on heresy by attempting to create a theocracy in America. Thrown into this mongrel mess is the hellish teaching that there will be an ‘end times transfer of wealth’ from the wicked to the ‘righteous’. In short, it’s a big, fat pile of misapplied Bible doctrine wrongly divided, and completely out of it’s proper dispensation and context. And, of course, they see themselves as the “righteous” to whom the “wealth of the wicked” will be transferred to. Oh, brother, give me a break.

Right now, in 2017, rule over this earth has been handed to Satan whom the Bible calls the ‘prince of the power of the air’. It is he who is now ruling over all the kingdoms of this earth. That’s why you have everything ‘in the cloud’, and data sent over WiFi. Satan is ruling the airwaves in these days before the Rapture of the Church. Christians in this dispensation are not ‘working to bring in the kingdom’, we are preaching Paul’s gospel and asking people to get saved while there is still time.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV)

The only kingdom slated to rise up will be the kingdom of Antichrist in the time of Jacob’s trouble. This present world is only going to grow worse and worse, this is what the Bible teaches only Dominionists don’t see it that way.

In Dominion Theology they think that they are working to ‘bring in the kingdom’ of the Lord Jesus Christ. That if they can just get control of all government, and force its citizens to submit to Old Testament law, they can make the world suitable enough for Jesus to return. The Bible teaches that Jesus Christ returns to set up His Kingdom, it does not teach that Christians are supposed to create one for Him. So everything they do is geared around trying to ‘bring in the kingdom’ that will only arrive on the Day of the Lord at the Battle of Armageddon.

Signs, Miracles, Wonders and new revelation from God are the basis for NAR

The New Apostolic Reformation teaches that God is still “anointing apostles”, is still giving fresh revelation of prophecy not found in the Bible. While the roots of NAR date back to it’s charismatic beginnings in 1900 in America, the name ‘New Apostolic Reformation’ was coined by a man named C. Peter Wagner back in 1994. Click here to read his article on Charisma.com where he tries to make the case that his movement is “not a cult”.

Wagner’s main error lies in the fact that, while he claims to “take the Bible literally” which is a good thing, he takes it literally without ever, one time, rightly dividing. And from a theological perspective that results in heresy. For example, Wagner looks in the Bible and sees that God has apostles at the start of the Church Age, so he figures that he and his buddies can be one. He forgets that one of the requirements of being an apostle is that you had to have seen the risen Lord Jesus, as Paul tells us here:

“Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? are not ye my work in the Lord? If I be not an apostle unto others, yet doubtless I am to you: for the seal of mine apostleship are ye in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 9:1,2 (KJV)

So sorry, C. Peter Wagner, looks like that puts you and your followers out of the running, as they say. But wait…there’s more! Wagner looks in the Bible and sees people performing signs, miracles and wonders, so he thinks since he just made himself an apostle doing signs and wonders should be par for the course. Guess he forgot to read where an actual apostle, Paul, tells us that signs, miracles and wonders will end and are not for the Church Age. Please note the following verses:

“Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.” 1 Corinthians 13:8 (KJV)

“(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)” 2 Corinthians 5:7 (KJV)

Christians in the Church Age are told to walk by faith, and not by sight. Sign and miracles are absolutely walking by sight. Lastly, our real apostle Paul tell us that signs are for the Jews.

“For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:22-24 (KJV)

Here is Wagner giving us an overview on NAR doctrine:

“The way to achieve dominion is to have kingdom-minded people in every one of the Seven Mountains: Religion, Family, Education, Government, Media, Arts & Entertainment, and Business so that they can use their influence to create an environment in which the blessings and prosperity of the Kingdom of God can permeate all areas of society.” source

So he wants to use physical and earthly means to bring in a spiritual kingdom, does he? That’s a pretty good trick. Too bad it’s impossible. So why do people follow the New Apostolic Reformation and Dominion Theology? That’s a pretty easy answer, watch this video:

It’s all about money, money, and mo’ money!

Ever wonder how charismatic televangelists like Kenneth Copeland, Rodney Howard Browne, Jessie Duplantis, Paula White and Joel Osteen generate millions of dollars of month each? Because they tickle the ears of their followers with sugar-coated lies that are eagerly lapped up by Bible-deficient pew fillers who are only too willing to empty their wallets to acquire the “deeper blessings” promised by these false teachers.

Who wants to be a regular, boring old Christian dealing with trying to walk a clean walk with the Lord when you can be crowned as an “apostle” who has miraculous gifts? It’s so much more exciting than just being saved and walking by faith.

Born again Christians in the Church Age have no command to “subdue the world” and bring in the kingdom. We are called to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, lead people to salvation, and warn the lost of coming judgment. The apostle Paul told no one to “bring in the kingdom”, had no wealth, and lived completely by faith in God, and the charitable giving of his converts in the churches he started. The idea of the NAR’s “seven mountains” was never even a thought in his head.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)

Rightly dividing is the solvent that quickly dissolves the entire false premise on which Dominion Theology and NAR sit on. Both are a living fulfillment of Paul’s prophecy that in the last days there would be a great falling away from doctrinal, biblical Christianity. NAR doctrine comes from taking the current Church Age, the coming Kingdom Age, and vainly attempting to make them one. You can’t, they don’t ever exist together either on earth or in Heaven. Rightly divide, or slip and slide. Your choice.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:3,4 (KJV)

Next up…the Rapture of the Church and the appearing of the other guy.

Bible truth: 1 – NAR doctrine: 0

The Infancy Gospel of Thomas Is An Egyptian Forgery And Is Once Again Back In The Headlines With An ‘Amazing Discovery’ Designed To Deceive You

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

The unbiblical Infancy Gospel of Thomas (IGT) describes Jesus’ life from the ages of five to 12 and was written during the 2nd century in Egypt

Back in 2021, I wrote an article that was purely speculative, just a feeling I had at the time, that we should prepare ourselves for the day when they would ‘discover the bones of Jesus’, thus rendering the entire New Testament impotent. While that still has not happened, yet, still plenty of deception abounds to try and get you to lose your faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ. One of these pieces of fakery is known as the Infancy Gospel of Thomas, and they just discovered ‘exciting news’ about a lost manuscript recently discovered that you need to know. (insert eye-roll here)

“And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.” 1 Corinthians 15:18,19 (KJB)

There is an excellent book called ‘Did The Catholic Church Give Us The Bible?’ from Chick Publications we sell at the Bookstore, and I highly recommend you get yourself a copy. It shows that there are two lines of manuscripts that produces two lines of Bibles. The first is the line of the preserved text, the Textus Receptus, where our King James Bible comes from. The second line comes from Alexandria in Egypt, and this is where the NIV, ESV, NLT, LSB and the Douay-Rheims used by the Roman Catholic Church comes from. The Infancy Gospel of Thomas comes from Egypt, is not scripture, does not belong in the Bible, and is not to be trusted with its silly stories like having the young Jesus making clay pigeons and then turning them into real birds. Don’t fall for it, that’s the memo.

Experts discover earliest record of Jesus’ childhood after deciphering 2,000-year-old Egyptian manuscript

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: The earliest known copy of an incredible story about Jesus performing a miracle as a child has been discovered scrawled on an ancient Egyptian manuscript. The 2,000-year-old papyrus – a material that predates paper – tells the lesser-known story of the ‘vivification of the sparrows,’ when the five-year-old Messiah is said to have turned clay pigeons into live birds, a tale also referred to as the ‘second miracle’.

The clumsiness of the handwriting led the researchers to believe it was likely written as part of a class exercise in a school or religious community in 4th or 5th Century Egypt, which was a Christian society in those times. The original story of Jesus’ miracle is thought to have been written around the 2nd Century as part of the Infancy Gospel of Thomas, a book detailing Jesus of Nazareth’s youth that was ultimately excluded from the Bible.

But until this discovery, the earliest written example of the gospel was from the 11th Century.

Until now, the papyrus had lay unnoticed at the Hamburg State and University Library in Hamburg, Germany.  Experts told DailyMail.com they stumbled upon the papyri while analyzing manuscripts and noticed Jesus’ name in the text.

‘It was thought to be part of an everyday document, such as a private letter or a shopping list, because the handwriting seems so clumsy,’ Dr Lajos Berkes, a co-researcher and lecturer at the Faculty of Theology at Humboldt-Universität said in a press release.

‘We first noticed the word “Jesus” in the text. Then, by comparing it with numerous other digitized papyri, we deciphered it letter by letter and quickly realized that it could not be an everyday document,’ he added.

But this gospel was omitted from the Bible because it was thought to be inauthentic. The Bible was also intended to focus solely on Jesus’ ministry, miracles and what led up to his dying on the cross. In the IGT story, Jesus is just five years old playing in a stream while molding 12 sparrows out of soft clay in the riverbed mud.

The papyrus fragment measured four by two inches and contained a total of 13 lines of a popular religious story from the IGT. Researchers said the story was likely written as part of a writing exercise in a school or monastery because of the clumsy handwriting, irregular lines and other signifiers.

‘Apart from what can be deduced from the general history of the collection, there is no evidence of how or when the papyrus was discovered,’ the researchers wrote in their article. READ MORE

OpenAI Disbands Safety Team That Was Put In Place So Artificial Intelligence Would Have Safeguards In Mad Rush To Bring About The Singularity

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

OpenAI on Friday confirmed that it has disbanded a team devoted to mitigating the long-term dangers of super-smart artificial intelligence.

The changes are happening so fast now that you might not even be aware that you are living in a science fiction futuristic movie where AI computer technology catches up with every day human life, beginning the process of taking over everything on every level. Your King James Bible has long shown you end times technology, you just didn’t know what it was when you read it. Now you do.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:15 (KJB)

We live in the southernmost state in America, in the country, surrounded by bucolic views of gorgeous farmland with scenes that likely have not changed much in a century. Life appears to move slower down here, yet it does not. Everyday I get in my car to drive to work, up to 30 different microchips spring into action to allow the smooth-running of my Jeep. I go to make a phone call while I ride, but first must pass the facial recognition shield protecting my mobile device. Far overhead, a ring of thousands of satellites are circling the Earth, constantly monitoring activity far below. It is at that moment it hits me again that we are living in very modern times, in fact, living in the future that writers, artists and filmmakers said would one day arrive. It is here. Headlines announcing Air Force pilots encountering UFOs barely get a notice anymore, everyone knows ‘they’ are here now, it’s become commonplace. We are the generation that sees the merging of man and machine, but we are also the generation that boards Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines. That’s what time it is.

OpenAI disbands team devoted to artificial intelligence risks

FROM YAHOO! TECH NEWS: OpenAI weeks ago began dissolving the so-called “superalignment” group, integrating members into other projects and research, according to the San Francisco-based firm. Company co-founder Ilya Sutskever and team co-leader Jan Leike announced their departures from the ChatGPT-maker this week.

The dismantling of an OpenAI team focused on keeping sophisticated artificial intelligence under control comes as such technology faces increased scrutiny from regulators and fears mount regarding its dangers.

“OpenAI must become a safety-first AGI (artificial general intelligence) company,” Leike wrote Friday in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

Leike called on all OpenAI employees to “act with the gravitas” warranted by what they are building. OpenAI chief executive Sam Altman responded to Leike’s post with one of his own, thanking him for his work at the company and saying he was sad to see Leike leave.

“He’s right we have a lot more to do,” Altman said. “We are committed to doing it.”

Altman promised more on the topic in the coming days. Sutskever said on X that he was leaving after almost a decade at OpenAI, whose “trajectory has been nothing short of miraculous.”

“I’m confident that OpenAI will build AGI that is both safe and beneficial,” he added, referring to computer technology that seeks to perform as well as — or better than — human cognition.

Sutskever, OpenAI’s chief scientist, sat on the board that voted to remove fellow chief executive Altman in November last year.

The ousting threw the San Francisco-based startup into a tumult, with the OpenAI board hiring Altman back a few days later after staff and investors rebelled. OpenAI early this week released a higher-performing and even more human-like version of the artificial intelligence technology that underpins ChatGPT, making it free to all users.

“It feels like AI from the movies,” Altman said in a blog post.

Altman has previously pointed to the Scarlett Johansson character in the movie “Her,” where she voices an AI-based virtual assistant dating a man, as an inspiration for where he would like AI interactions to go.

The day will come when “digital brains will become as good and even better than our own,” Sutskever said during a talk at a TED AI summit in San Francisco late last year. “AGI will have a dramatic impact on every area of life.” READ MORE

Newly-Unveiled Portrait Of King Charles III Swimming In A ‘Sea Of Blood Red’ Shows The Image Of Baphomet When Placed Side By Side In Reverse

The brand-new and official royal portrait of King Charles III ‘swimming in a sea of red’ officially confirms conspiracy theories about him being the Antichrist

Even though I still see Emmanuel Macron as the leading candidate for the biblical ‘man of sin’, what King Charles III did yesterday when he unveiled his brand-new official portrait of himself was a total rock star move. You might even say it was, as the English might remark, ‘just a tad shocking’. If King Charles III was looking to keep his name alive amongst end times students of prophecy, he nailed it yesterday. A direct descendant of Vlad the Impaler who waits 70 years to become king of England, and his official portrait has him swimming in a sea of blood red. Well done, old chap, and cheerio. But wait, there’s something else you should know.

“For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.” Revelation 16:6 (KJB)

Not only is his portrait swimming in a sea of blood red, it is also a huge portrait, approaching Genesis 6 giants size. As if the red was not shocking enough it has to be physically intimidating as well. Now let’s talk about that butterfly. King Charles III attends a church that at one time was a Christian church, the Church of England, but in our day is a functional Roman Catholic institution. Charles is well-versed and steeped in New Age spirituality, so the butterfly in his portrait would signal his ‘rebirth’ as a king, a ‘new beginning’, as well as perhaps a ‘message from the spirit world’. Whatever you think of him and his portrait, people across the board are duly shocked by what they saw, and they should be. It is a shocking piece of art, and just maybe, a message of what’s to come. One last thing. In the main photo for this article, I took the liberty of showing you his portrait two times, with the one photo given a horizontal 180-degree flip. If you look in the middle of this hand-painted and intentional portrait, you see the head of Baphomet. But I’m sure that’s just another one of those crazy ‘coincidences’, right?

A Shock of Red for a Royal Portrait of King Charles III

FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES: Royal portraits, as a rule, tend to be fairly staid, predictable affairs. Full of symbolism, sure, but generally symbolism of the traditional, establishment kind: symbols of state, of office, of pomp and lineage. Which is why the new official portrait of King Charles III by Jonathan Yeo, the first since the king’s coronation, has created such a controversy.

A larger-than-life (7.5 foot-by-5.5 foot) canvas, the portrait shows the king standing in his Welsh Guards uniform, hands on the hilt of his sword, a half-smile on his face, with a butterfly hovering just over his right shoulder. His entire body is bathed in a sea of crimson, so his face appears to be floating.

LOOK IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS PHOTO AND YOU WILL CLEARLY SEE THE HEAD OF BAPHOMET

Though the butterfly was apparently the key piece of semiology — meant, Mr. Yeo told the BBC, to represent Charles’s metamorphosis from prince to sovereign and his longstanding love of the environment — it was the painting’s primary color that almost instantaneously gave new meaning to the idea of “seeing red.” It was practically begging for interpretation.

“To me it gives the message the monarchy is going up in flames or the king is burning in hell,” one commentator wrote under the royal family’s Instagram post when the portrait was unveiled.

“It looks like he’s bathing in blood,” another wrote. Someone else raised the idea of “colonial bloodshed.” There were comparisons to the devil. And so on. There was even a mention of the Tampax affair, a reference to an infamous comment by Charles revealed when his phone was hacked during the demise of his marriage to Diana, Princess of Wales.

It turns out that red is a trigger color for almost everyone — especially given the somewhat meta endeavor that is royal portraiture: a representation of a representation, made for posterity. READ MORE

King Charles III was the opening speaker for the COP 28 Global Warming Conference in Dubai, he did not disappoint. He called for a swift return to paganism, to be like the indigenous people who worshipped the earth, and to allow that to connect and drive our global society.
