Sniffing Jesus: You Can Sniff the Body Odor of Jesus Too

eivazlead11182017a

You can sniff the body odor of Jesus if you have the gift of discerning of spirits says Jennifer Eivaz the Executive Pastor at Harvest Christian Center in Turlock, California. Apparently it can lead to a good laugh too. Jesus smells like laughing gas? She posted the below on Facebook.

Does this mean if I smell stale German beer and sausage some demon trying to mimic Martin Luther is after me?

This is pure nonsense and really doesn’t need further response.

Kris Vallotton the Senior Associate Leader at Bethel Church in Redding, California, and cofounder of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry said he found inspiration from Sylvester Stallone doing a porn movie to survive financially.

On 11-11-2017 Kris Vallotton shared a video from the Millionaire’s Sayings page on his own Facebook page. The video describes Sylvester Stallone’s struggles to succeed. In the video we’re told Stallone was so poor he did a porn movie to earn money. Kris Vallotton said he found this inspiring.

This is what happens when we esteem success over Christ. We end up finding inspiration in someone selling their body for sex. It shouldn’t surprise us that someone would esteem success over Jesus. Isaiah told us this would happen.

Isaiah 53:3 3He was despised and rejected[b] by men,
    a man of sorrows[c] and acquainted with[d] grief;[e]
and as one from whom men hide their faces[f]
    he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

The Simon the Sorcerer Mentality – Jennifer LeClaire and Jeremy Gibson

GibsonLeClaireLead09202017a

Jennifer LeClaire and Jeremy Gibson are helping to bring the mentality of Simon the sorcerer from Acts 8 right into the 21st century church.

In Acts 8 Simon the sorcerer acted like the work of the Holy Spirit was something he could own and control if only paid the right price. Peter rebuked him, and informed Simon that his heart was not in the right place.

18 Now when Simon saw that the Spirit was given through the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money, 19 saying, “Give me this power also, so that anyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.” 20 But Peter said to him, “May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money! 21 You have neither part nor lot in this matter, for your heart is not right before God. 22 Repent, therefore, of this wickedness of yours, and pray to the Lord that, if possible, the intent of your heart may be forgiven you. 23 For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and in the bond of iniquity.” 24 And Simon answered, “Pray for me to the Lord, that nothing of what you have said may come upon me.” (ESV)

Jennifer LeClaire and Jeremy Gibson have the same mentality about the work of the Holy Spirit. They treat the Holy Spirit’s activity and anointing like a possession to be owned, or a good to be obtained if only you will pay a price. Here are two recent Facebook posts.

Gibson09202017b

Notice the emphasis is on self. It’s as if the Holy Spirit is a product on the store shelves, up for purchase if only you will make the right sacrificial transaction.

Gibson and LeClaire have well recognized “ministries”, and they view those ministries as highly functional because they paid the price. You too can have a major ministry like their ministries if only you will pay for the Holy Spirit’s activity in the same way.

Should this be our mentality concerning the Holy Spirit?
“Hey I want to have an anointed ministry. How do I obtain that? Well I’ll just make the proper sacrificial transaction and purchase the Holy Spirit’s work.”

LeClaire and Gibson are not proposing to purchase the work of the Holy Spirit with money, but their attitude is fully congruent with Simon. Those who believe likewise need to be corrected so they can be granted repentance from God.

 

Christians Can’t Control Hurricanes – Dr. Michael Brown Corrects False Teaching

BrownLead09142017a

Dr. Michael Brown corrected the false teaching from the likes of Kat Kerr, Lance Wallnau, Robert Hotchkin and others that Christians can take authority over the weather, and command hurricanes, during his Line of Fire broadcast on 09-14-2017. Dr. Michael Brown said, “I do not see in the word that we have authority over weather.”

Lance Wallnau has been seen commanding millibars in Hurricane Irma to rise, and commanding it into the ocean.

Kat Kerr was seen telling Christians they are above the weather, demonstrating how to take authority over a hurricane and cast it out into the sea. She even made a ruling that Hurricane Irma couldn’t hit the coast of Florida.

Robert Hotchkin of Patricia King‘s XP Ministries said the Holy Spirit told him to do something about the weather once and take authority over it.

Those who teach, preach, and believe Christians have authority over the weather should listen to Dr. Michael Brown on this matter.

 

God Speaks Through AC/DC’s Money Talks? – The Pointe Church Fort Wayne, Indiana

acdclead09102017a

When you’re at an official Sunday morning worship service can you expect God to speak to you in a real way through AC/DC’s song Money Talks? The Point Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana prayed to God, asking God to speak to people in a real way. Immediately after the prayer they played Money Talks by AC/DC.

The entire service can be viewed here.

Kat Kerr Moves Goalposts not Hurricanes

KerrLead09092017a

Kat Kerr would like you to believe she can move hurricanes, but really all she can move are her own delusional prophetic goal posts.

In a previous video she tried to convince us she could make the hurricane go off into the ocean. Then she must have observed Irma’s change in direction on her smartphone weather app. Instead of going off into the Atlantic, Irma took a turn west.

To save face Kerr uploaded a new video.

Now she says western Florida is in a drought and needs rain. She’s now giving the hurricane permission to bring needed rain to western Florida, but she’s not going to allow the hurricane to cause damage.

The idea that Christians can command the weather is nonsense. Yes Jesus did command a storm in Mark 4:39. Yes Jesus did say we’d do works like he did and greater in John 14:12. This does not mean we are given authority over the weather.

Jesus commanded the weather to show us that He is God, not to be an example of something we can do. This idea that we can command weather is not something the apostles taught or practiced. The apostles didn’t command good weather in Acts 17 to stop a famine. Paul didn’t command the weather to stop a storm in Acts 27.

Surely they would have commanded the famine to stop or the storm to cease if Jesus taught this nonsense. I doubt our modern day “apostles” have a corner on truth that inspired authors of scripture didn’t have.

Can Christians command the weather, hurricanes, storms, etc.?

Do Christians have the authority to command the weather? Can they command storms, tornados, hurricanes and the like?

I like to get straight to the point. My answer is no. Please read my reasoning below. It’s the least courtesy you could show to someone who doesn’t want to waste your time with endless rhetorical meandering before stating one’s point. Thanks!

Many sincere people identifying as Christians believe Christians can take authority over the weather. They even have apparent bible verses to back it up. I believe these sincere people have been misinformed and lead astray.

This teaching is upheld by a complex doctrinal support structure (Known as the sonship doctrine.). Addressing the structure could be long and tedious, and could cause many to lose interest. I’m going to address this teaching without attempting to address the complex system upholding it.

The belief that Christians can command the weather seems to be based on this line of reasoning.

1.Jesus commanded the weather. Mark 4:39
2. Jesus said those who believe in him will do the works he’s doing and even greater. John 14:12
– Because Jesus commanded the weather, and because he said we’d do works like him, and greater works, Christians can also command the weather.

I think we have to understand the scope of what Jesus meant in John 14:12. Do those works involve even commanding the weather?

Acts 17 tells us about a prophecy concerning a famine throughout the entire world during the time of the early church.

27 Now in these days prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. 28 And one of them named Agabus stood up and foretold by the Spirit that there would be a great famine over all the world (this took place in the days of Claudius). 29 So the disciples determined, every one according to his ability, to send relief to the brothers[d] living in Judea. 30 And they did so, sending it to the elders by the hand of Barnabas and Saul.

Notice there is nothing mentioned about the need for Christians to take control over the weather to stop the famine? Notice no mention of the apostles doing such? What did they do instead? They made provision for food and sent relief. Surely if the scope of John 14:12 is that we’d command the weather, one of the apostles would have encouraged this.

In Acts 27 the apostle Paul was in a boat and came across bad weather. He didn’t attempt to command the weather. Surely if commanding weather was a foundational teaching of Jesus this apostle would have commanded the weather. He did not.

There are some things Jesus did as examples for us, so we can do the same. Some things he did as examples to show us that he is God and in total control, and those things are not to be done by us.

Jesus commanded the weather to show us he is God. If it were to show us an example of something we can do, then we would have seen apostles and believers doing it in Acts 17 and 27.

There are many things Jesus did that we know not to do. No one, and I mean no one, even those who believe in modern day major miracles teach that we can feed the hungry by taking a loaf of bread and a bottle of water to starving parts of the world, and multiply it like Jesus did. If you disagree, then please, by all means, go to the store, buy the bread and water, get an airplane ticket, and fly to the starving people. Put hustle to your muscle.

So what can Christians do concerning the weather? We can pray and petition God. Why? Because God controls the weather.

That’s all folks.
That’s all.
