The Anointing of Ease

FieldsLead05042017a

Did you know God has a simple and easy way for you to get the life you really want? Would you be amazed to know God’s intent is for you to reclaim your life of ease through his blessings and promises? What if you could speak to the storms and trials of life and make them go away just like Jesus did to the storm in scripture?

V.K. Fields shows us how to achieve all of that in her man-centered book “The Anointing of Ease”.

ease1

She describes how having the life you really want is simple and easy, because you can generate results similar to Jesus.

Would you like for your life to be easier? It is simply a matter of your will, which should only be a reflection of His will. Everything you really need to know to have the life you really want is simple-and more times than not, it’s easy because you are a believer and a follower of Christ Jesus. Following Christ means that we study His life, follow His example, and generate results similar to His.

She gives the impression we can speak to the storms we face in life, and make them go away, just like Jesus did to the literal storm. She says that by following the example of Jesus we can make storms obedient to us.

Have you ever heard a sermon that sounded something like this? “If you are a child of God, you are either in the middle of a storm, coming out of a storm, or going into a storm.” Ironically, the example we are given in the Bible is of Jesus resting during the storm and awaking only to silence the storm. He said, ‘Peace, be still.’ He did not fear the storm, worry about the storm, or curse the storm. He spoke to the storm, and the storm responded in obedience to His words and to His will. That is our example. When we follow His example, we should also get His results.

Your life should not be defined by the storm, because the storm is subject to you and your authority through Christ Jesus. In The Anointing of Ease, author V.K. Fields shares how to reclaim God’s original intent for your life of ease through His blessings and promises.

How does she measure up to scripture?

Jesus said we would have tribulation in the world.

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33 (ESV)

As it is written,

“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
    we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

Romans 8:36 (ESV)

He also said Christians groan inwardly, feeling the pain of creation.

And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.

Romans 8:23 (ESV)

Did Paul experience a life of ease? Was he able to make his storms go away?

To the present hour we hunger and thirst, we are poorly dressed and buffeted and homeless,

1 Corinthians 4:11 (ESV)

Paul described himself as hungry, thirsty, poorly dressed, buffeted, and homeless. Did he simply fail to use his authority as a believer to make his life easier?

Of course not. We all know such an assertion is total nonsense, just like this book from V.K.Fields.

Hillsong’s Brian Houston & Assemblies of God Covered Up a Pedophilia Scandal Asserts Church Watch Central

Church Watch Central in an extensive blog entry asserts that Hillsong’s Brian Houston and the Assemblies of God covered up a pedophilia scandal involving Frank Houston in 1999. Link to entry here.

Is there a concerning linking of Steven Furtick to Bethel Redding, Bill Johnson and Shawn Bolz?

Is there an important and concerning linking and association between Brian Houston, Bethel Redding, Bill Johnson, Shawn Bolz, and Steven Furtick? One of my strengths is scavenging for data, but one of my weaknesses is connecting dots and finding important connections. I’m asking for your input on this one. Please let me know if there is a “there there”.

In my Facebook feed I have seen two concerning ads which seem to link or associate some big names and people with really bad doctrine and practices.

First is this ad about Open Heavens at Bethel Redding Church, October 4-6, 2016. You’ll notice Brian Houston of Hillsong, Bill Johnson of Bethel Redding, and Shawn Bolz.

Second are the ongoing Hillsong Conference 2016 ads featuring Steven Furtick which puts him in association with Brian Houston.

I think most people reading this blog are aware of the issues with Bethel Redding and Bill Johnson. Shawn Bolz is known for his cold readings and psychic like “prophecies”. Read here if you need some catching up on Shawn Bolz.

So you have Brian Houston clearly ministering with and associating with the likes of Bethel Redding, Bill Johnson and Shawn Bolz. You then have Steven Furtick ministering and associating with Hillsong and Brain Houston who have said associations with Bethel Redding, Bill Johnson and Shawn Bolz.

Is that one degree of separation or association between Furtick and Bethel Redding/Bill Johnson/Shawn Bolz somehow significant? If yes, why is it significant?

I keep seeing Furtick associating with someone who associates with the craziness of Bethel Redding, Shawn Bolz, and Bill Johnson, and I think there is something there, I just can’t put my finger on it. Can you? Assuming there is something there. Is this whole thing a stretch?

 

“Baby love the way you turn me on.” North Point Community Church.

I just went over to North Point Community Church’s Facebook page to look at their post linking to their 90’s Sunday worship opener. I recently did an entry on their intro and a lyric in the intro.

I noticed NPCC has changed the privacy settings on their video. It’s no longer visible on VIMEO, or on any websites externally linking to it. It is visible on their blog.

Anyways, while looking at their Facebook post I noticed some still defending the use of “Baby I love the way you turn me on” in an official church worship service.

I made a new video with the scene repeated over and over and over and over and . ..

My hope? That through repetition it would finally sink in.
