Thanks again Treena for the work you do in exposing error. This is the false teachings and doctrines we came out of and we know many who are still in it and deceived. Praying they heed the warnings and awake to the lies and deception.

I have warned previously that the New Apostolic Reformation is a counterfeit form of Christianity that is taking many churches by stealth worldwide. The NAR is not an organisation per se, but rather it is an aberrant movement that is spreading like gangrene, just like the false teaching of Hymenaeus and Philetus. (2 Timothy 2:17). All Nations Church in Leicester has participated in the diabolical NAR agenda for many years.

The false premise that present-day apostles and prophets must hold formal offices of governance in the church, ahead of pastors and elders, is antithetical to the scriptures. NAR leaders claim that their apostles and prophets have extraordinary authority, on a par with New Testament apostles and Old Testament prophets. However, they will not be held to the same accountability, in that they allow for their prophecies to be inaccurate. (Deuteronomy 18:20-22Jeremiah 28:9Ezekiel 33:33). NAR “Apostle” Mike Bickle freely admits that 80% of the manifestations that occur in charismatic meetings are not real! {1} He is quite prepared to overlook the false in favour of the 20% of manifestations that are supposedly real! Bickle’s irresponsible attitude just about sums up the credibility of the NAR. (Jeremiah 5:31).

The NT makes no mention of the formal office of Apostle or Prophet, rather, an apostle is simply a missionary or a church planter, and the gift of prophecy is one of various gifts Paul listed for the common good. (1 Corinthians 12:4-11). The insistence that local pastors and elders must submit to the authority of NAR apostles and prophets is very concerning. Within the NAR, individual apostles acting on behalf of the “global church”, have authority over their own network of churches and ministries, sometimes numbering into the hundreds. This contradicts the biblical model of church structure as laid down in the NT. Paul instructed Titus to ..appoint elders in every town as I directed you. (Titus 1:5; cf. Acts 14:23). In the New Testament, individual churches are autonomous congregations with their own local overseers directing their specific affairs. In fact NAR apostles and prophets literally hijack churches and overrule pastors/elders because of their presumptuous claims to receive direct revelation from God.

NAR apostles and prophets claim to have peculiar authority equal to and even above that of the foundational New Testament apostles. (1 Corinthians 3:10-12). They claim that they are bringing new and crucial revelations that are essential for the church. These claims fly in the face of the scriptures and the orthodox assertion that appears in many doctrinal statements affirming the sufficiency of scripture as the only infallible source of doctrine and practice. (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Since NAR leaders deny the fact that the canon of scripture is closed, they give themselves free reign to pronounce ongoing extra biblical revelations by their own authority. In doing so, they usurp the authority of the scriptures and leave believers with no point of reference by which to test the spirits and determine truth. (1 John 4:1). In alleging the restoration of apostles and prophets, the very foundation laid by the NT is destroyed. (Ephesians 2:20). ..if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalm 11:3). 

The credentials for an apostle are clearly laid out in the NT. When choosing a replacement for Judas Iscariot, Peter specified that he must be – “ of the men who have accompanied us during all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from the baptism of John until the day when he was taken up from us—one of these men must become with us a witness to his resurrection.” (Acts 1:21-22; (John 15:27;1 Corinthians 9:1Acts 22:14-15). The apostles were personally chosen by Jesus Christ Himself (Matthew 10:5Mark 3:13-14Luke 6:13Acts 1:24-26Acts 9:15Acts 22:14-15,21Acts 26:16). Jesus was seen alive by the apostles after his resurrection (Acts 1:172225). Obviously, none of the above criteria apply to NAR “apostles”. (Revelation 2:2).

Dominion theology is a very dangerous form of unbiblical eschatology followed by NAR networks. NAR dominionists take Genesis 1:28 out of context as a divine mandate to claim dominion over the earth. They claim that Jesus Christ cannot and will not return until dominion of the earth is achieved by the church physically, spiritually and politically through their seven mountain mandate. According to the NAR this mandate involves a great revival and transference of wealth to NAR leaders. However the scriptures state the precise opposite of these false teachers. Jesus Christ stated unequivocally that at the end of the age many will fall away from the faith (Matthew 24:10), there will be massive deception (Matthew 24: 4,5,11,24), betrayal (Matthew 24:10), and great tribulation (Matthew 24:21). The apostle Paul corroborated Jesus’ words and also prophesied a falling away (apostasy) (2 Thessalonians 2:3 cf. 1 Timothy 4:1).

Kingdom Connections will be holding sessions on Friday and Saturday 14th and 15th of March at No 10 Meyer Hall and Wycliffe Hall in Leicestershire. This is yet another local push for the one world religion aka the New World Order of the Antichrist.

About Kingdom Connections
Kingdom Connections evolved relationally in an apostolic context across the UK and in Europe. Tim and Sue Eldridge (Harrogate) have standing relationships with Ian and Marj Rossol (Leicester) and John and Chris Larkin (Southampton), all of whom are working in itinerant ministry to serve, bless, encourage and equip others in the body of Christ. As their relationship across the UK developed they became more intentional in working together as a team, connecting the connectors in their wider spheres of involvement with networks, denominations, streams, churches and individuals. 

We celebrate the diverse expression of church and our desire is to serve within and across as many as God connects us to. Our aim is not to create a formal organisation, but to provide opportunities for strategic partnership and sharing and so give God glory by honouring one another in this way. Our desire is to dialogue with local and regional leaders. (Malachi 3:16{2}

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” And when Jesus finished these sayings, the crowds were astonished at his teaching, for he was teaching them as one who had authority, and not as their scribes.(Matthew 7:21-29).

And the angel said to me, “The waters that you saw, where the prostitute is seated, are peoples and multitudes and nations and languages. And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will hate the prostitute. They will make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire, for God has put it into their hearts to carry out his purpose by being of one mind and handing over their royal power to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. And the woman that you saw is the great city that has dominion over the kings of the earth.” (Revelation 17:15-18). 

Then those who feared the Lord spoke with one another. The Lord paid attention and heard them, and a book of remembrance was written before him of those who feared the Lord and esteemed his name. “They shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him. Then once more you shall see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve him. (Malachi 3:16-18).
