One of the main signs of a false doctrine is the elevation of man and the undermining of the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Sometimes it comes very subtly but if man is elevated in any way then God is dethroned somewhere in there, of that you can be sure!
One such movement is the manifest sons of God doctrine or Dominion theology. Now that is not to say that there are not true and genuine Christians involved in that movement but the movement itself has alot of error in it.
Dominion theology comes from a distorted interpretation of Romans 8:19 and a few other passages. It teaches that a perfected, glorified church will usher in the kingdom of God by taking dominion over the world. To this end, the church must be placed in order by coming under the authority of present-day apostles and prophets.
How do we know whether this is a false teaching or not?
For one thing many of these so called prophets have been caught red handed in sin…such as Paul Cain who is now exposed publicly as a homosexual and drunkard, as well as Bob Jones who got kicked out of the Vineyard for asking women to undress before the lord in his office.
But he is still in ministry supported by these other prophetic people including Rick Joyner.
Paul Cain, Latter Rain Prophet of Renown Is Now Discredited
by Orrel Steinkamp, The Plumbline, Volume 9, No. 5, December 2004
Paul Cain, a prophetic legend and a living bridge to William Branham and the Latter Rain of the 50′s, has now been revealed to be an alcoholic and a practicing homosexual. Ironically, this disclosure came at the hands of his fellow prophets who had elevated him to a super prophet status and who themselves endeavored to attain the lofty prophetic mantle of Cain himself. Bob Jones, a Kansas City prophet, himself discredited by sexual indiscretions in his prophetic practice, referred to Cain’s prophetic ministry as: “the terror of the Lord” (Al Dager, Vengeance is Ours, (Redmond, Washington: Sword Publishers), July, 1990, p.131).
Jones, Bob Apologetics research resources on religious cults and sects.The Apologetics Index research resources on religious cults, sects, new religious movements, alternative religions, apologetics-, anticult-, and countercult organizations, doctrines, religious practices and world views. These resources reflect a variety of theological and/or sociological perspectives.
One of the Kansas City Prophets. Seen by some as the most controversial of the Kansas City Prophets. Was removed from the Vineyard Anaheim because of sexual improprieties, which consisted of encouraging women to undress in his office so they could stand “naked before the Lord” in order to receive a “word.” Still active today, with the abundant support of Rick Joyner. Jones is a major proponent of Latter Rain and Manifest Sons theology.
Kim Clement explains in his own words concerning the teachings of sin, grace and salvation. “I thought that Christianity was based on a relationship resulting from grace. My idea that each person is born with a treasure in their spirit is mocked, and I am accused of being a new age prophet because I will NOT focus on their sin but rather on their treasure”[emphasis his] ……. “I know how a sinner feels because I have been one”……..I do not believe that you must be born again to obtain salvation…….you cannot and will not make a disciple out of a sinner who has been introduced to Jesus Christ on the basis of their sinful inheritance only.”
This is an unbiblical False teaching for it contradicts scripture!
Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” (John 3:1-7)
This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 1 John 1:5-10
PROPHETIC WORD THROUGH KIM CLEMENT on TBN 01/12/04
Kim Clement Prophesies Concerning Ben Laden, ‘OUT within 35 days’ Plus March appointed for USA Church” PROPHETIC WORD THROUGH KIM CLEMENT on TBN 01/12/04
“Osama Ben Laden said that in 35 days, America, he was prophesying, predicting, that this country would be abolished basically, wiped out, because he has a plan for 35 days. And the word of the Lord came to me… the spirit of the Lord said to me, “You prophesy that the very thing that he said and predicted for this nation, tell him, prophesy, that that is reversed, and I’m going to bring him out in 35 days!”
In John’s Gospel he explains that Jesus is “the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world” (Jn.1:9). John was addressing those who claimed to be a messenger’s (of light) of God (especially the Gnostics who held that mans spirit was good and not fallen). The Holy Spirit is to bear witness to every man’s fallen human spirit to bring that light who is Christ Jesus into a person’s heart. The thrust of John’s words is that Jesus is the uncreated God not the human soul that is a spark of divinity or God already in man. That we walk in darkness, we are children of the Devil (having the nature of sin) and as sinners we need to pass from death to life by having a rebirth from God’s Spirit coming in and giving life to a dead spirit in sin.
A host of others have made blatant false prophecies! Such as Kim Clement with false prophecies. Still people follow these guys blindly without question when the bile tells us clearly to PROVE ALL THINGS!
What does the bible say that the Lord requires of you as his disciple?….To be a super being and go around displaying your super spiritual muscles or does he want you to be empty of self and filled with him so that he can empower you to be a servant ?
Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
I can of mine own self do nothing as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
Luke 32: 41-44
And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me, nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.
And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
Dear reader, please be careful what you hear for in these end times many will come claiming to know christ BUT Jesus said that you will know them ….BY THEIR FRUIT!
