bill johnson's leaven: beware global legacy 2016 all nations church leicester uk

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. (2 Peter 2:1-3)

Global Legacy came from a "prophetic word" from none other than arch deceiver, cult leader and self appointed "apostle" Bill Johnson of Bethel Church Redding who perpetuates the aberrant teachings of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). There is so much negative information reported about Bill Johnson that is is difficult to know where to begin. I reported some time ago about Bethel's practice of "gravesucking" which is a form of necromancy.1 Bethel also claims various "signs and wonders" such as miraculous healings, glory clouds, gold dust, feathers, fire tunnels etc. The scriptures tell us us that an evil and adulterous generation seeks a sign (Matthew 6:4; 12:39). When the disciples asked Jesus Christ about the sign of his coming and of the end of the age, his first words were: "See that no one leads you astray." (Matthew 24:3-4). He continued to warn them about wars and rumours of wars, various earthly catastrophes, tribulation, false prophets, the increase in lawlessness and the prevalence of great (lying) signs and wonders (Matthew 24:3-13, 24).

Bill Johnson is an influential leader of the NAR, a heretical movement which encompasses Dominion Theology (aka Kingdom Now, Christian Reconstructionism and Theonomy). The NAR seeks to implement authoritarian theocratic world government based on "biblical law". Johnson teaches that the mandate of the end-times church is to achieve dominion on the earth prior to Christs return.

The basic tenets of Dominion Theology are as follows:
  1. God gave Adam dominion over the earth based on Genesis 1:28.
  2. Adam lost dominion over the earth to Satan when he sinned in the Garden of Eden.
  3. Jesus Christ defeated Satan and reclaimed dominion in his victory on the cross.
  4. After his death and resurrection Jesus Christ reversed the curse of sin and gave dominion back to believers.
  5. The Church must gain control of the earth’s governmental and social institutions, and establish the Kingdom on earth, by force if necessary.
  6. Jesus Christ cannot return until all His enemies have been put under the feet of the Church. 
The lies of the enemy are a clever mixture of truth and error, in order to deceive the very elect if possible (Matthew 24:24). While Christ did indeed reverse the curse of Adam's sin, the completion of his achievement on the cross is premillennial (Zechariah 14:4-9; Matthew 25:31-34). The kingdom will not be established until JESUS CHRIST (NOT THE CHURCH) sets up his millennial reign after the Great Tribulation (Revelation 19:11-20:4; 22:19). Jesus Christ did not commission the church to remodel society, the church was commissioned to preach the gospel to the whole world and to make disciples (Mark 16:15; Matthew 24:14; Matthew 28:19-20). 

Johnson's theology is not in accord with the scriptures at all, it is rooted in the flesh. His elitist mentality splits the Body of Christ into the "Elijah generation" i.e. specially "anointed ones" and their dumbed down followers. The "apostolic unity" taught by the NAR is in fact personal submission to self-proclaimed apostles, it is not unity based on agreement with the Word of God and it is not based on obedience to Jesus Christ.  In fact the dominionist model is more analogous to the one world religion of the Antichrist and False Prophet! According to Johnson, these "anointed ones" can do greater miracles than Jesus and will bring about a great end time revival. The Bible tells us that only Jesus Christ is uniquely anointed and that all Christians are equally anointed through Him. Furthermore, the scriptures speak of a massive falling away, spiritual deception and the rise of the Antichrist who will initiate a false revival (Matthew 24; 2 Thessalonians 2:3; 1 Timothy 4:1; Revelation 13:5). Dominion theology facilitates a reversal from looking up for Christ's return (Luke 21:28), to looking to certain "anointed ones" to bring about the triumph of the church. In other words, it replaces Jesus Christ!

Global Legacy 2016:

"Global Legacy 8th and 9th of January...... Global Legacy is dedicated to helping fulfil the mission of Bethel Church, which is REVIVAL: The personal, regional, and global expansion of God's kingdom through His manifest presence! 

Global Legacy (GL) is an apostolic, relational network of revival leaders whose purpose is to bring Heaven to earth (Matt. 6:10). Following the New Testament model for apostleship, GL seeks to establish Kingdom government and to build empowering cultures.

Recognising that relationship is the foundation of God's government, GL helps to build relationships between revival leaders through relational gatherings, ministry events and mission trips, as well as through monthly newsletters and video conferencing. GL also offers resources that equip leaders, and those they lead, to transform their spheres of influence and surrounding cultures into Kingdom cultures.

Global Legacy is dedicated to helping fulfill the mission of Bethel Church, which is REVIVAL: The personal, regional, and global expansion of God's kingdom through His manifest presence!" 2

Johnson is opposed to careful scholarship based on sound exegesis of scripture, and herein lies his strength. Johnsons "off the map" approach denies the Reformation principle of sola scriptura and leaves his followers vulnerable to "every wind of doctrine" (Ephesians 4:14), with no means to test what is said (1 John 4:1; 1 Thessalonians 5:2; 2 Timothy 2:15; Isaiah 9:16). As a result we see the church being infiltrated with unbiblical manifestations and doctrines of demons.  

The verse quoted by Global Legacy is Matthew 6:10 from the Lord’s Prayer which is primarily a prayer for the return of Christ:

Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Global Legacy: "Heaven’s government is family, and Global Legacy seeks to express the government of heaven here on earth. We are richer because of our relationship with you and your ministries and organizations. We look forward to running alongside you in pursuit of worldwide revival!" 3

My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world. (John 18:36)

In the model prayer that Jesus gave His disciples, He taught them to pray, 'Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven' (Matthew 6:10, King James Version). Did He mean that we are to pray that Christians will take over the governments of the earth to establish a visible kingdom of God? Since He gave us no such command and described His kingdom as not of this world and not visible in the natural sense, we must conclude that the answer is no. 
Completely in keeping with what Jesus did commission, what Jesus meant in this prayer is that we are to pray for the spread of God's spiritual kingdom on earth through the preaching of the Gospel and the subsequent conversion of hearers who will then submit to God's will."  4

Many church leaders in Leicester have strong links with All Nations Church and have no qualms about joining in with Bethel Church and their associated doctrines of demons.5 John McGinley of Holy Trinity Church embraces the aberent teachings of Bill Johnson and his Sozo deception.6 David Hind of Trinity Life Church (TLC) praises Bethel's Jesus Culture7 and Andrew Upton of Knighton Evangelical Free Church promotes false unity with both All Nations and TLC 8 These men are not true shepherds, they are hirelings at best and wolves in sheep's clothing at worst (1 Corinthians 10:20; Matthew 15:14; John 10:12-13). 


While the churches in Leicester and elsewhere are enjoying their double standards, their false doctrines and their lying signs and wonders, judgement is coming! The false prophecies of "revival" these elite "apostles and prophets" have been promoting for years WILL NOT be a genuine revival of the Holy Spirit, their predictions are rooted in the spirit of antichrist! 

The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)

  1. I often wonder how believers can be taken in by such wolves. But then this is what happens when we don't "nit-pick" and "split hairs" as some say-you WILL get taken in by such charlatans?
    Apparently there is a "MASSIVE" factory fire that has just broken out in Leicester, not that I blame Johnson for it, you understand! Hope the fumes are not blowing in your direction.
    God bless.

  2. It is still very shocking to me that those I used to have fellowship with are taken in by these lies Colin. We need to stick to the scriptures and to the apostles teaching as never before. The fire is in Belgrave I believe, some distance from me. Thank you for your concern. God bless tx
