I am posting this testimony from Inerrant Word Blog as the Author of this Blog site rejoices that his wife has been delivered from the extreme Pentecostalism of Bill Johnson. Below is only a small section of her testimony and I have provided a link at the bottom so you can read this testimony in it’s entirety.
At the beginning of 2010 I decided I wanted to get involved in a more passionate “Christianity”. I have always thought of myself as a worshipper & I craved being around others who lived & breathed worshipping the Lord.
Our church had been *pushing* & wanting revival to break out. So naturally I went home one day and decided to research about what “revival” actually was and how we could get it! Through my discoveries I found out about The Welsh Revival, Charles Finney and others.
I wanted *revival* to break out in our church. The more I read about the “amazing” things that happened in Wales, the more I wanted that to happen to us.
A member of our church had been involved in the Brownsville Revival. She told me many stories about the revival that happened there & the anointing that she received from there. Whenever she went up for prayer her body would shake & eventually she would, fall to the floor.
I was curious and started looking into the information surrounding the Brownsville revival. Like the Toronto blessing, the Brownsville revival had similar manifestations of the holy spirit, and following that was the Lakeland revival.
At that time I was initially very cautious. It didn’t seem to line up with the God of the Bible I knew and I couldn’t find anything in the scriptures to back up what was happening in these places. BUT I so desperately wanted to feel God and being among passionate Christians, I thought that this was where those sorts of people were. Some of the manifestations, including the prophetic seemed exciting and it drew me in.
Despite my initial caution & a nagging feeling of unease, I started listening to the answers that these extreme prophetic people would give to the sceptics.
Here are some of the things they said/say:
– God was revealing new things to the church today.
– God was moving in a way that was different & more relevant to the world now.
– How could these things not be of God, when people were singing his praises all within the safety of a church?
– No one can judge or dismiss the manifestations of the holy spirit, if you did then this then you were quenching the Spirit.
– David danced in the streets and people then thought he was crazy, but he was a man after the Lord’s heart. This meant that even though manifestations were similar to David’s dancing (disorderly behaviour) they were of God.
– The church at Pentecost had exactly the same spirit manifestations (like drunken behaviour…because in the Bible the mockers thought they were acting drunk therefore the early church must have had drunken spirit manifestations.
– Bill Johnson is such a kind, quietly spoken & gentle man therefore he must be a man of God.
– People from all over are coming in droves to these churches, so its has to be good.
– In the last days, God’s spirit will pour out on his people and this is that.
– No-one can judge the holy spirit. If something is done in the name of the holy spirit then it must be the holy spirit.
– Those who think that these manifestations are not of God are Pharisees (& are not open to things happening in the spirit outside of the Bible).
– People who were outside of these movements were missing out on a special anointing from the Lord.

Kris Kildosher from Bill Johnson’s Bethel Church visited a local Church in the Defiance Ohio area in February. I have included an audio of the message below which is about an hour and a half long. Riddled throughout the message are many prophecies of financial breakthroughs, a house of restoration for the pastor of the church, and many other bizarre happenings, several invisible healings, as Kris introduces himself as the entertainment of the hour. Just prior to his introduction, Kris is found on the floor during the worship service where he was given a vision of the throne of God. Now drunk in the Spirit, Kris takes the podium where he begins to preach (if you can call it preaching).
Kris’s mom is a spirit filled catholic, according to Kris she had dreams and visions so as a result Kris met Jesus at a young age. During Kris’s college years God spoke to him about Acts 5, God said that Kris was lying to God about giving everything to God. Kris then spent two days rolling around on the floor having visions and encounters. Nov 7, 2004 the Holy Spirit came into His apartment and filled him. (Question: how was he having visions and encounters if the Holy Spirit wasn’t there? According to Kris, after the two days of rolling on the floor having visions and encounters, the Holy Spirit came into his apartment and filled him.)
Kris then started going to house church meetings where signs and wonders where happening, diamonds would appear on floor, nine of them showed up at his house when he went to the school of supernatural ministry. He then moved to Bethel California to attend the School of Supernatural Ministry where he graduated in 2008. He then traveled the world. 1 Tim 1:11 is His favorite verse “The bliss full happy God” (Must be a new version).
Listening to Kris you start to understand that everything he believes in is experience based rather than faith based. Like dozens of deaf ears being opened, tumors disappearing on a weekly bases, dreams, visions, encounters etc. Like his conversion, there is no mention of the Gospel, repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ. All you hear is about dreams, visions, the prophetic, etc, etc. This then is the fruit of Bill Johnson’s ministry, a “Gospel-less Gospel.” I found it difficult to listen to the message in it’s entirety in one sitting as it made me nauseous to think that the church has gone so far from the truth of God’s Word. However, I felt it necessary to post so people can see what sort of warped teachings are coming out of Bethel Church. To listen to the message click here – Kris Kildosher of Bethel
