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.

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.

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.

Lance Wallnau Finger Shoots Hurricane Irma Commanding it to Wobble and Peesh

WallnauLead09062017a

Lance Wallnau brought out his inward 6-year-old and decided to finger shoot Hurricane Irma, complete with sound effects. I have no idea if he asked someone to tie a cape around him.

Some people have this crazy idea that we can command storms to cease because Jesus commanded storms to cease. Jesus is God. We are not God. People who are not God cannot command storms to cease.

Most of us have a hard enough time putting the old Adam to death through the Holy Spirit. Do we really think we can blast large hurricanes away by simply finger shooting them?

Please ask God to grant you repentance if you believe in this messed up interpretation of scripture. Jesus is God, you are not God. Pray for the conversion of these false teachers, and that people would see this as total nonsense.

In a recent Facebook post, Pastor Jennifer Eivaz said God has been speaking to her through double egg yolks.

You can learn the amazing skills of hearing God speak through egg yolks if you attend the conference this October she’s speaking at with the inventor of the Sneaky Squid Spirit Jennifer LeClaire.

Does this really need further commentary? It’s nonsense. Period.

Tales from the Creep: “Prophet” Interviews Dead Princess Diana

thecreep09012017a

“Prophet” Matthew Robert Payne says Jesus commissioned him to interview the deceased Princess Diana and bring her answers to people in his new book Princess Diana Speaks from Heaven: A Divine Revelation

diana09012017a

In the past few years, Matthew Robert Payne has been receiving visits from Diana in spiritual visions. To mark the twentieth anniversary of her death, Jesus Christ has commissioned him to interview her and bring her answers to people in this short book.

Jesus has apparently also commissioned him to interview Michael Jackson too.

Scripture speaks against communicating with the dead.

10 There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering,[a] anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer 11 or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, 12 for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you. Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (ESV)

31 “Do not turn to mediums or necromancers; do not seek them out, and so make yourselves unclean by them: I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 19:31 (ESV)

Todd White can Sovereignly and Irresistibly Elect People to Salvation?

toddwhitelead08082017a

Todd White may have granted himself and fellow believers abilities that most in his theological camp wouldn’t even grant God. In the video below he asserts that he can claim someone’s salvation and there is no way they can get out of it.

This is really interesting and contradictory because most people in his theological camp tend to be against protestant reformation-era views concerning monergism and God’s part in election and salvation. Most in his theological camp would not grant God the power to do the very thing Todd White just claimed was within his ability.

By default Todd White may be granting himself power that he wouldn’t grant to God.

You can listen to the entire interview below.
