There is a false anointing in the church. It is prevalent among the “signs and wonders” crowd, most notably those who call themselves the “new mystics” and promote, among other things, the “drunken glory.” As I mentioned in my article on Strange Fire in pentecost we used to call this “wildfire.” Now they embrace the term proudly and even convene “Wildfire Spirit Schools.”
Justin Abraham from Wales is one of these so-called “New Mystics.” He aligns himself with mystics John Crowder and Ben Dunn. Their agenda is to divert the church with utter foolishness at the expense of the gospel. I'm reminded of the foolish Galatians, of whom Paul said were “bewitched.”
These are the folks who now claim that God is manifesting His glory – His Divine Nature- in church services as a gold or silver-like dust. To those who object, they claim that “you cannot put God in a box.” Yet God has already given us His response in His Word:
“Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man.” -Acts 17:29
This was a quote from the Apostle paul at Mars Hill. More than anyone, the people of Athens would have enjoyed the escapades of the New Mystics. Paul's reaction was to get in their face and call them to repentance.
The aberrations do not stop there. For just a small fee, you can learn to levitate, bi-locate, even do “shape shifting.” No mention if the invisibility manifestion involves "cloaking devices" or not.
In this recording, Justin Abraham tells us that we can, through a divine impartation, breathe underwater (at 02:36). Friends, this is not biblical Christianity.
I have already written about the drunk-in-the-spirit manifestation promoted by people such as John Crowder or Carol Arnott (Toronto). Sadly, this is probably the least damaging thing taught by Justin Abraham.
I guarantee that this clip will get you laughing, but do not confuse your laughter with Holy Laughter, unless we are talking about the Godly laughter cited in Psalm 2:4. It's a long clip; I could only get through about 4 minutes of it.
Jesus plainly tells us that in the last days, you know those days that come at a time we do not expect, that “false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to misled, if possible, even the elect.” -Matthew 24:24
While there may be some gospel truth proclaimed in these meetings, we call this sort of stuff Gospel Plus. There would not be deception in the church if truth was not mixed in with error. I can only ask- isn't the gospel – Christ and Him crucified – enough? That's all Paul wanted to know (1 Cor 2:2) . That's all I want to know.
