PAUL WILKINSON: SERIAL REVISIONIST BY DAVE MACPHERSON

     Here's a hint or two:
     Prov. 14:5 says "A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies." II Tim. 3:13 predicts: "But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived."
     And now some facts about Dr. Paul Wilkinson who, unlike his American counterpart Thomas Ice, possesses an honorable doctorate from an accredited school, the University of Manchester.
     My wife and I recall meeting the late great encyclopedia contributor Dr. F. F. Bruce and being invited to have tea with him in his office there. This occurred before I had written my first book, and Bruce was then excited over the long forgotten pretrib rapture history that we had already uncovered in libraries throughout England and Scotland.
     Accidental omission when pursuing historical facts is one thing (and I've been guilty of this a few times). But deliberate concealment is something else - and not merely happenstance when it's a sustained pattern and others are aware of it and point it out to the offending person.
     Wilkinson authored "For Zion's Sake: Christian Zionism and the Role of John Nelson Darby" published by Paternoster Press in 2007. He included an appendix on "Margaret MacDonald's Utterance" (p. 263).
     His idolizing of Darby may have been his main motive for stopping his quotation of Margaret's 117-line pretrib revelation account (1830) at line 58 just before her statement of "the one taken and the other left" BEFORE she writes "Now will THE WICKED [Antichrist] be revealed" - what I have long viewed as her "main point."
     Wilkinson had to have been aware that others (Hal Lindsey etc.) have used her phrases in the same way - phrases briefly expressing the essence or "kernel" of the 187-year-old pretrib rapture view (a pretrib rapture before Antichrist's appearance). And since he'd rather credit Darby with pretrib origination, or at least the "revival" of it in the 1830s, he naturally yielded to temptation and quickly took the wind out of her Port Glasgow sails!
     Wilkinson must have also remembered that his friend and fellow revisionist "Dr" Thomas Ice, when supposedly quoting Margaret in an unbiased and uncensored way, stopped quoting her at line 55 and resumed quoting her in line 72! (Thomas Ice, "Why the Doctrine of the Pretribulational Rapture Did Not Begin With Margaret McDonald, Bibliotheca Sacra, 1990)
     Margaret's "revelation" (which is actually only her interpretation of Scripture) has two parts in what I call her "main point": (1) the rapture ("one taken" etc.) which happens before (2) the Antichrist ("THE WICKED") is revealed.
     Some revisionist pretribs omit the first part; others omit the second part. "Dr" Ice played it safe and omitted both parts of her "main point" in his Dallas Sem. journal article (above) so that he could brazenly declare that she did NOT teach a pretrib rapture!
     Not long after Joe Schimmel's blockbuster DVD "Left Behind or Led Astray?" came out, Wilkinson, imitating Ice, responded with his "Left Behind or Led Astray? - Exposed." Again he stopped quoting the Scottish lass at line 45!
     At about the same time Treena Gisborn (of "Wolves in Sheep's Clothing" blog fame) penned "Left Behind or Led Astray: Paul Wilkinson's Vitriolic Outburst at the Berean Call Conference 2015!!!" - a must-read for all who decry today's increasing revisionism by dishonest pretrib traffickers!
     I also added my thoughts in a net piece titled "Margaret Macdonald's Main Point."
     The revisionism continued in 2016 with a Pretrib Research Center video titled "Response to Left Behind or Led Astray?" starring Ice as well as Wilkinson. This time I spotted Wilkinson stopping at line 58 while quoting Margaret - his devious way of changing her from pretrib to posttrib. In fact, at the end while summarizing Margaret's main (pretrib) point, Ice said with a smirk "Can anybody find a pretrib rapture in that statement?" And Darby idolizer Wilkinson added: "This is posttrib. This is a posttrib rapture." (!)
     "Dr" Ice (whose "Ph.D" was lifted from an unaccredited seminary that was fined by the state of Texas for issuing illegal degrees!) also had the effrontery to declare that Irving and his followers never taught either pretrib or imminence! My book "The Rapture Plot" has a chapter with many quotes from the Irvingite journal "The Morning Watch" expressing any-moment imminence as well as clear pretrib statements (while Darby was still publicly defending posttrib historicism until his first clear pretrib teaching which didn't begin until 1839!).
     In Sep. 1830 "The Morning Watch" saw "Philadelphia" raptured before "the great tribulation." In 1832 John Tudor stated that "some of these elect ones shall...be left in the great tribulation...after the translation of the saints." In 1832 another writer spoke of "the translation of the living...of which we may daily expect the accomplishment."
     When surfing the net it isn't hard to find those who have interpreted "the one taken and the other left" the way Margaret did when she was expressing pretrib. The word "left" as in the "Left Behind" books etc. is the same as the "left" in her main point and we know that those bestselling books see a pretrib rapture followed by Hollywoodized scenes of a future great tribulation.
     John Walvoord's "The Rapture Question" (p. 110) shows that Robert Govett's partial rapturism was similar to Margaret's; Walvoord wrote: "The one left, according to Govett, is left to go through the tribulation."
     An interesting net piece titled "A Warning to Those Who Think They Are Saved" was a sermon preached by the well-known Dr. R. L. Hymers Jr. at the Fundamentalist Baptist Tabernacle in Los Angeles. He quoted Margaret's main point as found in Matt. 24:40-41 and stated: "I have become convinced that many people who believe they are converted are actually lost. I believe that they will be left behind when the rapture occurs...left behind to face the horrors...left behind on the earth to be tormented by the Devil."
     David J. Stewart, a well-known guest on TBN who's associated with Jesus-is-savior.com, sees a pretrib rapture in "the one shall be taken, and the other left" (Luke 17:35, 36) in his article "Left Behind at the Rapture" (2005, updated 2012).
     Wilkinson, by the way, cited only my 1975 book "The Incredible Cover-up" (instead of my 1995 book "The Rapture Plot" which is more valuable than my other books combined) when supposedly analyzing her in a fair way - and he analyzed her by deliberately omitting all of her main point so that he and Ice could lie together and tell the world that the pretrib originator was really teaching a posttrib rapture!
     For more on Margaret and Irving, Google "X-Raying Margaret," "Margaret Macdonald's Rapture Chart," "Pretrib Was New in the 1830s," "Edward Irving vs. John Darby," and "Pretrib Rapture Diehards."
     Right now I will yield to temptation and quote Jeremiah 17:11 which says, in part, that "he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool."

RICHARD TAYLOR: NEW BEGINNINGS OR OLD TRICKS?

It amazes me why anyone would attend Taylor's new venture New Beginnings after the failure of the so called "Welsh Outpouring" and his adultery in 2014. {1}

Factually, we know that Taylor is a false prophet due to the failure of the "Welsh Outpouring" and all the "prophecies" surrounding its expansion and success. We know that Taylor is a self confessed adulterer (after being caught in the act that is). We know that following his adultery, Taylor seemed to think that it was perfectly acceptable to continue in so called "ministry", and although he was fired by Elim, he vigorously sought other avenues in which to perpetuate his presumption and folly. Taylors behaviour was too much, even for Elim, the shamefully apostate ecumenical UK based Pentecostal denomination!

To rub salt into the wound, Taylor's alleged "church" has been set up at Bethania Chapel in Merthyr Tydfil, the very church that was acquired by Victory Church under very questionable circumstances back in March 2012 under Taylor's leadership:

“Bethania Chapel was bought in 1999 by Bethania fellowship with money provided by Woodlands Trust, a charity owned by Richard Sheppard. Bethania Fellowship carried out major repairs to the church, also building a new toilet block and baptismal pool, work which cost them tens of thousands of pounds. During this time they were repaying the money back to the charity. They were also paying the buildings insurance, a policy arranged by Mr.Sheppard for 'owners' of a building. About three years ago, Mr Sheppard said he wanted to sell the building and told the fellowship that the money they had been paying to the charity had been 'rent' not repayment, even though there had never been a rent agreement drawn up. Bethania fellowship had the building valued by two local estate agents and offered Mr Sheppard the valuation price . But he told the fellowship he wanted them to pay him at least double the price quoted by the estate agents, even though they had worked so hard on the building and put a lot of money into it. It became obvious that he didn't want Bethania fellowship to have the building, so they had to leave the church.”
Comment posted by Elizabeth Evans on the 17th of October 2013. {2}

I notice that Taylor's wife, Jill, joins him in his folly as "Senior Pastor". I was contacted by Jill Taylor over a year ago when she requested that I remove all my posts about the "Welsh Outpouring" in order to give her husband a second chance. I am assuming that Taylor himself was behind this dubious appeal so that he could lessen the impact of his murky past whilst planning future deception. Biblically Taylor is a marked man: Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. (Romans 16:17 KJV).

I hope that readers of Rob Thomas's blog http://watchman4wales.blogspot.co.uk and also my posts, will understand how completely outrageous any alleged "Christian" venture set up by Taylor is. Anyone attending New Beginnings has to be completely out of their mind and have no interest in the scriptures or anything remotely true and praiseworthy.

“A time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats.”  ?CH Spurgeon.

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. (2 Timothy 4:3-4).

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).

ARE THERE TWO GOSPELS? THE ERROR OF GEOFFREY GRIDER: NOW THE END BEGINS

http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/gospel-of-the-kingdom-that-will-be-preached-in-the-time-of-jacobs-trouble-is-not-pauls-gospel/

Grider: ".. the gospel of the grace of God given exclusively to Paul in Damascus by Jesus for the Church Age was markedly different from the gospel preached by Peter in Acts 2. Today I want to show you yet another gospel that will be preached in the end times, and it’s called the gospel of the kingdom. This gospel, much like Peter’s, is a combination of faith plus works, and Jesus warns that failure to abide by it will result in the loss of your salvation. This gospel (of the kingdom), much like Peter’s, is a combination of faith plus works, and Jesus warns that failure to abide by it will result in the loss of your salvation."

On the day of Pentecost Peter preached a "gospel of grace" without works:
Those who believed what Peter said were baptized and added to the church that day--about 3,000 in all. (Acts 2:41).
Paul also undoubtedly preached the same "gospel of grace" without works:
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. (Ephesians 2:8 cf. Titus 3:5).
Nevertheless, James reminds us that that faith without works is dead. (James 2:17, 20, 26). Faith cannot be acquired by works, although the scriptures make it very clear that subsequent to salvation, faith must necessarily be accompanied by works if it is genuine. (2 Corinthians 13:5). There is no contradiction in the scriptures, although some who have given themselves over to error and perversity would argue otherwise.

Does Jesus say that "the gospel of the kingdom is a different gospel", as Grider so forcefully puts it?

Grider: "But one thing that Matthew 24 does not address and does not discuss is any reference to Christians or to the Church Age that we currently find ourselves in. Why not? Because the focus is squarely on Israel and the trials and tribulations of the Jewish people in the time of Jacob’s trouble."

Grider: Matthew 24 does not mention Christians.. REALLY?

Jesus addresses His disciples i.e. the future church/Christians: He speaks to them about two separate events in history: {1} the signs of His coming and the end of the age, and {2} the destruction of the temple in 70AD. Jesus warned about the great tribulation and the falling away, events that most certainly involve the Christian remnant.  

As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?

“Then they will deliver you (Christians) up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:3,9-14, confirmed by Paul: 2 Thessalonians 2:3).

70AD The destruction of Jerusalem by the Roman Army:

“So when you (Christians) see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. (Matthew 24:15-16; Daniel 9:27). 

The rapture is not "conspicuously absent" from Matthew 24 as Grider claims:

Jesus speaks explicitly in consecutive terms: Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. v31-And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. (Matthew 24:29-31). His elect are believers, i.e. the church. The rapture (verse 31) in fact follows the great tribulation. This exact sequence of events is confirmed in Revelation 6.

Israel will not be raptured. It is during the second half of Daniel's 70th week that Israel will flee to a place in the wilderness, probably Petra, in order to survive the great tribulation. (Micah 2:12; Isaiah 63:1-6). The Lord will protect and nourish them in the wilderness for 1260 days i.e. 3.5 years. 

No Other Gospel

The apostle Paul is not recorded as using the phrase "the gospel of the kingdom". He wrote about "the gospel", "the gospel of Christ", "the gospel of God", but the phrase "the gospel of the kingdom", cannot be found on Paul's lips.  However, Paul does refer to "the kingdom" a number of times: Romans 14:17; 1 Corinthians 4:20; 6:9, 10; 15:24, 50; Galatians 5:21; Ephesians 5:5; Colossians 1:13; 4:11; 1 Thessalonians 2:12; 2 Thessalonians 1:5; and 2 Timothy 4:1, 18. The terms "the gospel of God", "the kingdom of God", and "the gospel", are inextricably connected by Jesus Christ Himself. (Mark 1:14-15). The King James translation of Mark 1:14 is "the gospel of the kingdom of God", Greek εὐαγγέλιον θεοῦ = the gospel of God. In other words they are synonymous terms.

Jesus Christ used the phrase a number of times :

"..And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14). To restate the obvious: the gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed to the whole world, literally, the inhabited earth, as in Luke 2:1 and Acts 11:28 . "[The kingdom (932 /basileía) is constantly used in connection with Mark 1:14-15). The rule of Christ in the hearts of believers – which also extends in various stages.]" {1}

“The Law and the Prophets were until John; since then the good news of the kingdom of God is preached, and everyone forces his way into it.. (Luke 16:16; cf. Matthew 11:12 ).
It is clear that the kingdom of God follows the Law and the Prophets... for everyone.

Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” (Mark 1:14-15). 

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. (Galatians 1:6-9).

For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough. (2 Corinthians 11:4).

Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people. (Revelation 14:6).

When the scriptures are so explicit, how does anyone have the audacity to claim that there are two gospels?

Peter agrees with Paul and warns of ignorant and unstable people who twist the scriptures to their own destruction:

And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures. You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. (2 Peter 3:15-18).

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15).

Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness. (James 3:1).

SIMON BRAKER PROPHET? HOLY TRINITY CHURCH LEICESTER

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).

Who is Simon Braker?

Braker is the founder of School of the Spirit and claims to "operate in the office of a Prophet". {1} 

"Simon Braker is the founder of School of the Prophetic Leicester and co-founder of City Gates Ministries. He is a graduate and an ordained Minister of Kingdom Faith Bible School, he is also a member of the faculty of UK Wagner Leadership Institute, and a member of Ad HOC of the European Coalition of Apostolic Leaders. Simon is also a part of the senior leadership of Holy Trinity Church Leicester, and he has ministered extensively in Eastern Europe, India, USA and the UK. Simon and his wife, Joe, have four children and live in the city of Leicester, UK." {2}

It is immediately evident that Braker is involved with the heterodox shape-shifting movement widely known as the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) by his membership of the organisations in bold above. The NAR is also known as the Apostolic-Prophetic Movement, Christian Reconstructionism and Theonomy, and has associations with The Latter Rain Movement; Joel's Army; The Seven Mountain Mandate; Third Wave Revivalism; IHOP; Bill Johnson's Bethel Church, The Hillsong Media Empire and Rick Joyner's MorningStar Ministries.

The UK Wagner Leadership Institute was founded in 1998 by C Peter Wagner. Wagner invented the term "New Apostolic Reformation" and proclaimed himself the NAR's "Anointed Presiding Apostle". He claimed that the church of the 21st Century will return to Apostolic governance and will be ruled by apostles and prophets equal to the New Testament Apostles.

Wagner listed the differences between the NAR and traditional Protestantism as follows:

· Apostolic governance – The Apostle Paul's assertion that Jesus appoints apostles within his church continues to this day.
· The office of the prophet – There is within the church a role and function for present-day prophets.
· Dominionism – "When Jesus came, He brought the kingdom of God and He expects His kingdom-minded people to take whatever action is needed to push back the long-standing kingdom of Satan and bring the peace and prosperity of His kingdom here on earth."
· Theocracy – Not to be confused with theocratic government but rather the goal to have "kingdom-minded people" in all areas of society. There are seven areas identified specifically: religion, family, education, government, media, arts & entertainment, and business.
· Extra-biblical revelation – There is available to all believers the ability to hear from God. "The one major rule governing any new revelation from God is that it cannot contradict what has already been written in the Bible. It may supplement it, however."
· Supernatural signs and wonders – Signs and wonders such as healing, demonic deliverance, and confirmed prophecies accompany the move of God.
· Relational structures – church governance has no formal structure but rather is by relational and voluntary alignment to apostles. {3}

The European Coalition of Apostolic Leaders

"Anyone who has concerns about the New Apostolic Reformation should keep an eye on two organizations: the International Coalition of Apostolic Leaders, led by 'Convening Apostle' John P. Kelly, and its daughter structure, the European Coalition of Apostolic Leaders, led by 'convener' Jan-Aage Torp. These two networks are energetically working 'to build apostolic government in all cities and regions.' You may be surprised to learn just how extensively apostles in many nations are networking to promote NAR teachings." {4}

NAR "Super Apostles" claim to be equal with, or to have superseded the original Apostles, and since they are allegedly commissioned by God, their authority cannot be questioned. Thus, NAR leaders usurp the clear foundation of the apostles teaching in the scriptures and put the Body of Christ under their own authority. Believers are therefore deprived of the safeguard of scripturally testing prophesies. (1 John 4:1; 1 Thessalonians 5:21). 

The NAR teach a flawed post-millennial view of eschatology i.e. Christ's second coming will occur after the millennium. They have redefined the Great Commission in order to accommodate their own agenda, which is to take dominion of the world by means of sociopolitical control under the leadership of NAR apostles and prophets via the Seven Mountain Mandate: Education, Religion, Family, Business, Government/Military, Arts/Entertainment and Media. New extra biblical revelations, allegedly from "God", are given exclusively to NAR prophets (and occasionally apostles). By acting on these new revelations, they claim that the church will be empowered to take dominion of the world in order to enable Jesus' return. Needless to say that Dominionism is utterly false and is not the gospel of Jesus Christ: Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world.." (John 18:36 cf. 2 Corinthians 11:4)). Postmillennialism violates the scriptures which describes Jesus' literal thousand year reign on the earth. (Zechariah 14:4-9; Matthew 25:31-34). Premillennialism is based upon a literal interpretation of Revelation 20:1-6. 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). In essence, these NAR false apostles and prophets promote the diametric opposite of the scriptures, often with hyped up claims about revival/awakening/end time harvest. The scriptures speak very clearly about an end time apostasy. (Matthew 24:10-12; 2 Thessalonians 2:3).

These people turn the gospel upside down. They deny the inerrancy of the scriptures, and in doing so, they deny the authority of Christ Himself! NAR leaders include infamous gravesucker Bill Johnson, {5} false prophet Rick Joyner who is a Jesuit/Freemasonic Knight of Malta {6} and Ché Ahn. If you are not alarmed by all of this then there is something very seriously wrong!

The misinterpretation of Ephesians 2:20

For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit. (Ephesians 2:18-22 cf. Acts 2:42).

I take the view that the apostles and prophets referred to by Paul above are the apostles of the New Testament and the prophets of both the Old and New Testament. (Romans 1:1-2).

..if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalm 11:3).

The word foundation is critical to this issue. The canon of scripture is foundational and was laid by the original apostles. Those who claim to receive new extra-biblical revelations and claim to be equal with, or to have even superseded the original apostles and prophets are enemies of Jesus Christ.

For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 3:11).

According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it. (1 Corinthians 3:10).

And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (Mathew 16:18).

And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. (Revelation 21:14).

And what I am doing I will continue to do, in order to undermine the claim of those who would like to claim that in their boasted mission they work on the same terms as we do. (2 Corinthians 11:12).

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. (2 Corinthians 11:13–15).

Simon Braker does not challenge the false doctrines of the church. This of course would be a strong indication that he is a true prophet. NAR prophecies are extremely vague and easy to re-interpret when they fail to materialise. Braker is part of the senior leadership of Holy Trinity Church in Leicester which is ecumenical. Can a true prophet of God be ecumenical? The answer to this question is a resounding NO! Without repentance there cannot be revival! Jesus Christ calls the churches to repent. (Revelation 2:5-7, 16-17, 22-23; 3:1-3; 15-20).

Simon Braker's Prophecy For the UK Dated August 13th 2017:

"I saw a vision where drops of clean water were falling into a stagnant pool. At first they just kept bouncing on the top of the scum and seemed to be having no effect, but as I watched, slowly it began to split and ripples began to form; with each drop the ripples grew bigger and the scum began to break up. Then a wonderful thing happened, what had been a single drop began to be joined by many, slowly at first, but then there was thunder ...and a storm began to rage and the surface of this stagnant pool began to get ripped up.

It was at this point that the Lord lifted me up and I saw the shape of the pool, it was in fact the UK, and as I watched, the old dirty water was flushed out and the pool began to fill up fast, and after a time it began to burst its banks and break out and overflow in all directions into the nations.

Then the Lord spoke- One again I shall pour out my Spirit on what has become a stagnant and stinking land, but I shall wash away the dirt and filth and fill her afresh with the pure water of my Spirit. I will flood her borders with my presence and a great awakening shall come, a new missions movement shall be born and thousands shall go in my name and take the rains of revival to the nations again.

Stay encouraged, do not allow what seems to be bouncing off the surface frustrate you, for know this, the cracks are beginning to form; the clouds are starting to gather and the rains are ready to fall. This land shall be a land of clean waters and revival again; not gatherings to meetings and events, but the gathering of my Army ready to be sent. They shall go empowered with my Spirit and show forth my glory, not just in church meetings but in the Market place, for this shall be the last and the greatest outpouring of my Spirit in this land.

The elements have been shouting forth My Word, even the land itself. Those who have eyes have seen it; rivers bursting their banks, streets fields, towns, cities, roads, work places, houses, temples, churches flooded. In this time my Spirit will invade them all, for I am the God of the impossible and my plans and purposes stand eternal, so stand ready to catch the wave and do not lose heart!" {7}

Where is the call for the churches to repent of their false doctrines?

The cluster of false doctrines at Holy Trinity Church in Leicester include New Wine, {8} Monasticism/TOM (Mike Breen), {9} Mission Shaped Communities (devised by false prophet Mark Stibbe), {10} Breathe,{11} SOZO (Bill Johnson) {12} ..and not one word from Braker about these critical problems!

Far from revival, the scriptures speak of godlessness in the last days:

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. (2 Timothy 3:1-4 cf. 2 Peter 3:3; Jude 1:18).

Braker proclaims himself to be "the Prophet", and John McGinley, Vicar of Holy Trinity, "the Apostle". {13} Is anyone else utterly horrified that this man speaks such vain profanities?

False prophets prophesy "peace".

They have healed the wound of my people lightly, saying, ‘Peace, peace,’ when there is no peace. Jeremiah 6:14; 8:11; 14:13).

And the Lord said to me: “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I did not send them, nor did I command them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a lying vision, worthless divination, and the deceit of their own minds. Therefore thus says the Lord concerning the prophets who prophesy in my name although I did not send them, and who say, ‘Sword and famine shall not come upon this land’: By sword and famine those prophets shall be consumed. And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem, victims of famine and sword, with none to bury them—them, their wives, their sons, and their daughters. For I will pour out their evil upon them. (Jeremiah 14:14-16).

The prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule on their own authority; And My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it? (Jeremiah 5:31).

..who say to the seers, “Do not see,
and to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us what is right;
speak to us smooth things,
prophesy illusions.. 
(Isaiah 30:10).


Hananiah the False Prophet

1In that same year, at the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the fifth month of the fourth year, Hananiah the son of Azzur, the prophet from Gibeon, spoke to me in the house of the Lord, in the presence of the priests and all the people, saying, 2“Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon. 3Within two years I will bring back to this place all the vessels of the Lord’s house, which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took away from this place and carried to Babylon. 4I will also bring back to this place Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, and all the exiles from Judah who went to Babylon, declares the Lord, for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.5Then the prophet Jeremiah spoke to Hananiah the prophet in the presence of the priests and all the people who were standing in the house of the Lord, 6and the prophet Jeremiah said, “Amen! May the Lord do so; may the Lord make the words that you have prophesied come true, and bring back to this place from Babylon the vessels of the house of the Lord, and all the exiles. 7Yet hear now this word that I speak in your hearing and in the hearing of all the people. 8The prophets who preceded you and me from ancient times prophesied war, famine, and pestilence against many countries and great kingdoms. 9As for the prophet who prophesies peace, when the word of that prophet comes to pass, then it will be known that the Lord has truly sent the prophet.10Then the prophet Hananiah took the yoke-bars from the neck of Jeremiah the prophet and broke them. 11And Hananiah spoke in the presence of all the people, saying, “Thus says the Lord: Even so will I break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon from the neck of all the nations within two years.” But Jeremiah the prophet went his way. 12Sometime after the prophet Hananiah had broken the yoke-bars from off the neck of Jeremiah the prophet, the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: 13“Go, tell Hananiah, ‘Thus says the Lord: You have broken wooden bars, but you have made in their place bars of iron. 14For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: I have put upon the neck of all these nations an iron yoke to serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and they shall serve him, for I have given to him even the beasts of the field.’” 15And Jeremiah the prophet said to the prophet Hananiah, “Listen, Hananiah, the Lord has not sent you, and you have made this people trust in a lie. 16Therefore thus says the Lord: ‘Behold, I will remove you from the face of the earth. This year you shall die, because you have uttered rebellion against the Lord.’” 17In that same year, in the seventh month, the prophet Hananiah died. (Jeremiah 28:1-17).

The outcome for Hananiah was death! I am not a prophet, but I do not expect to see a good ending for false prophets/teachers like Braker/McGinley and their followers unless there is repentance.

Tragically Braker's School of the Spirit has been taken up by Trinity Life Church in Leicester. Many are being led astray in these last days. (Acts 20:29; 1 Timothy 4:1).

THE CONTINUAL STREAM OF 666 EMANATING FROM TRINITY LIFE CHURCH LEICESTER

I haven't looked at TLC on FB for a while, but this is the latest 666 display from a young man promoting TLC's alleged "School of the Spirit". Obviously his parents did not teach him to speak properly, but that is another matter. It is a little late to try and put you off attending this event as it took place in August I believe.

The founder/promoter of the "School of the Spirit" is Simon Braker, a senior leader at Holy Trinity Church Leicester (ecumenical CofE). Braker claims to "operate in the office of a Prophet", and is a member of the UK Wagner Leadership Institute and also a member of Ad HOC of the European Coalition of Apostolic Leaders. {1} In other words, he is a New Apostolic Reformation dominionist. Dominionism is NOT the gospel of Jesus Christ! (2 Corinthians 11:4). It is tragic that these young people are being sucked into false doctrines at TLC. Dominion theology is postmillennial and is at complete odds with the pre-trib rapture which is an AOG doctrine. How TLC manage to combine both these false contradictory doctrines is yet another question that needs to be addressed.. that is, if they are as interested in following the teaching of Jesus Christ as they claim to be! (Luke 6:46). What an NAR ecumenical dominionist "prophet" can do for TLC spiritually is unfathomable!

The hand signal being displayed by this young man is the Illuminati 666 sign that is prominent in Luciferian circles. It is superficially known as the A-OK sign, but there is much satanic double talk in apostate churches teaching false doctrines these days. (1 Timothy 4:1). It would be extremely naïve not to realise that this sign is one of a number of Illuminati mainstay symbols in plain sight i.e. the all seeing eye of Lucifer combined with the number 666. Many politicians and celebrities blatantly and continually parade this sign, some of them openly admitting to having sold their soul to Satan.








"This is their way of letting each other know that they have accepted the Antichrist.. that they are one with Lucifer, one with Satan. To them it means the approval of their divine king or the lord of light.." 

I recommend Joe Schimmel's YouTube video: Which Pop Stars Are Promoting 666 and Satan?












Flaunted by TLC, the bent or broken cross. The bent cross is a cross with the crossbeam curved slightly downwards, aka the Peace Symbol, Druid's Foot, Druxtenfuss, Nero Cross, Neroic Cross, Raven's Foot, Sign of the "Broken Jew", Symbol of the Antichrist, Teutonic Cross, the Teutonic rune of death "Todersrune", Witch's Foot. {2} The bent cross represents the distortion and destruction of Christianity.

Also flaunted by the Pope








This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666. (Revelation 13:18).

CERN AND THE ABYSS

Alarm and consternation about CERN continues to grow with various theories doing the rounds on the internet. These are perilous and godless times. (1 Timothy 3:1). Nevertheless, the Lord reigns. (Psalm 93:1). Satan is a liar, a deceiver from the beginning. (John 8:44).

Firstly, the earth will not be destroyed.

He built his sanctuary like the high heavens, like the earth, which he has founded forever. (Psalm 78:69).
He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved. (Psalm 104:5).
Your faithfulness endures to all generations; you have established the earth, and it stands fast. (Psalm 119:90).
A generation goes, and a generation comes, but the earth remains forever. (Ecclesiastes 1:4).

Secondly, there is speculation that CERN is opening the Abyss, and that the fallen angels currently held there will be released. The fallen angels held in Tartarus (the Abyss), will not be released, even if this is the goal of CERN. These fallen angels are held in the Abyss until judgement day according to the scriptures which cannot be broken. (John 10:35):

And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day— (Jude 1:6).

For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell (tartarōsas) and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; (2 Peter 2:4).

The book of 1 Enoch fills in many details about the fate of the fallen angels presently held in the Abyss. Their leader, Azâzêl, to whom is ascribed all sin, is particularly singled out and prioritised for judgement, followed by Semjâzâ and his associates, the full number of the Watchers who defiled themselves with women:

1 Enoch X
4. And again the Lord said to Raphael: 'Bind Azâzêl hand and foot, and cast him into the darkness: and make an opening in the desert, which is in Dûdâêl, and cast him therein. 5. And place upon him rough and jagged rocks, and cover him with darkness, and let him abide there for ever, and cover his face that he may not see light. 6. And on the day of the great judgement he shall be cast into the fire. And heal the earth which the angels have corrupted, and proclaim the healing of the earth, that they may heal the plague, and that all the children of men may not perish through all the secret things that the Watchers have disclosed and have taught their sons. 8. And the whole earth has been corrupted through the works that were taught by Azâzêl: to him ascribe all sin.' 9. And to Gabriel said the Lord: 'Proceed against the bastards and the reprobates, and against the children of fornication: and destroy [the children of fornication and] the children of the Watchers from amongst men [and cause them to go forth]: send them one against the other that they may destroy each other in battle: for length of days shall they not have. 10. And no request that they (i.e. their fathers) make of thee shall be granted unto their fathers on their behalf; for they hope to live an eternal life, and that each one of them will live five hundred years.' 11. And the Lord said unto Michael: 'Go, bind Semjâzâ and his associates who have united themselves with women so as to have defiled themselves with them in all their uncleanness. 12. And when their sons have slain one another, and they have seen the destruction of their beloved ones, bind them fast for seventy generations in the valleys of the earth, till the day of their judgement and of their consummation, till the judgement that is for ever and ever is consummated. 13. In those days they shall be led off to the abyss of fire: and to the torment and the prison in which they shall be confined for ever. And whosoever shall be condemned and destroyed will from thenceforth be bound together with them to the end of all generations. 15. And destroy all the spirits of the reprobate and the children of the Watchers, because they have wronged mankind. Destroy all wrong from the face of the earth and let every evil work come to an end: and let the plant of righteousness and truth appear: and it shall prove a blessing; the works of righteousness and truth shall be planted in truth and joy for evermore. {1}

In my view it is likely that CERN are working to make contact with various evil entities from what is sometimes described as "another dimension". The statue of Shiva the destroyer stands in a courtyard of CERN, giving us a good idea of their intentions. Dûdâêl appears to be synonymous with the Abyss, Tartarus or the "bottomless pit". (2 Peter 2:4). Revelation 9 tells us that it is an angel, not CERN, who opens the shaft of the bottomless pit. Biblically it is Abaddon the destroyer, the angel of the bottomless pit, who will lead a five month long regime of unspeakable torment upon those who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads:

And the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit. He opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft. Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth. They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any green plant or any tree, but only those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. they were allowed to torment them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings someone. And in those days people will seek death and will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them.
In appearance the locusts were like horses prepared for battle: on their heads were what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces, their hair like women’s hair, and their teeth like lions’ teeth; they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the noise of their wings was like the noise of many chariots with horses rushing into battle. They have tails and stings like scorpions, and their power to hurt people for five months is in their tails. They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon. (Revelation 9:1-11).

God will ultimately destroy those who are destroying the earth:

The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear your name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth.”

Richard Seed, Nuclear Physicist, Human Cloning Research on advancing technology:

"We are going to become gods, period. If you don't like it, get off. You don't have to contribute, you don't have to participate, but if you are going to interfere with ME becoming god, you are going to have big trouble. It will have warfare."  {2} (Isaiah 14:14).

From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 4:17).

Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. (Isaiah 45:22).
