The Question Of Dominion
by Sandy Simpson
This DVD is a message based on this article: The Question Of Dominion.
I am writing this article as an apologetic against the Third Wave, Latter Rain, Word of Faith and Reformed Theology teachings that the Church is to rise up and take over the systems of government, businesses and every other aspect of life. "See, the problem is, is that Satan has had too much of his way in our society because he has a government! And the only way to overthrow a government is with a government. It won't happen otherwise. So therefore the government of the church has to get into place in the extended church just like we do have it very well in place, we haven't reached our goal yet ..." (Transcript of C. Peter Wagner, Arise Prophetic Conference, Gateway Church, San Jose, CA, 10-10-2004) Wagner has substituted the "government of the church" for the coming government of Jesus Christ in the Millennial Kingdom. Wagner is "Kingdom Now" while the Bible teaches "Kingdom Come". What I wanted to do with this article is put the issue of dominion to rest by studying the definition the Bible gives to dominion and ruling authority. When we look at the subject we can easily ascertain what is going on today and what God requires of the Church.

Featured Discernment Ministry
There is a "River" that is flowing into congregations all over the world. Deceptively beautiful, it gently carries you along after you've stepped into its teasing current for the first time, until the powerful undertow eventually pulls you midstream. Once there, while you plunge headlong into raging whitewater, the other shoreline is suddenly evident. Strewn with the wreckage of human lives and littered with the debris of false doctrine, this "River's" farther shore is at last visible, and it is frightening. They never told you about this part. They wouldn't. This website was born out of the need for the body of Christ to know about the dangers of the "River" movement. It goes by a lot of different names - the River Revival, Latter Rain, The Third Wave - and it is marked by bizarre manifestations, false prophecies and esoteric revelations. Warnings of divine retribution hold many adherents in a bondage of fear, making them afraid to speak out or even question those things they are taught and are witness to. But for the seeking heart, there is a way out, back into the freedom and simplicity of Christ Jesus, and to experience again the joy of following Him rather than the latest Christian fad. It is my hope to provide in this web site the Biblical knowledge and tools to help the seeker to honestly examine the teachings, practices, and beliefs of the "River," swim to shore, and get shed of its murky waters. Many have already done just that. I did.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 "The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness." This has always been an interesting passage to me for a few different reasons. What is "the lie" that is talked about here in verse 9? What are the ways that "wickedness deceives those who are perishing" and how long has this been going on or does this only begin to happen at the coming of the lawless one? In what way does "the lie" cause those who do not believe the truth to "delight in wickedness"?

|John Piper And Linger Conference With Ihop's Stephen Venable And His Contemplative Teaching|
|by Ken Silva, 1/18/14
Yesterday Apprising Ministries told you about John Piper And Stephen Venable Of IHOP Together At Linger Conference. The upcoming Linger Conference (LC), scheduled for February 14-15, 2014. features NC mentor John Piper, a well-known charismatic, and current Acts 29 president and "reformed charismatic" Matt Chandler. Also at LC will be Stephen Venable, who is "a missionary at" IHOP currently serving "as an instructor" at IHOP University. In addition, he's "part of the senior leadership team of the Antioch Center for Training," which is an extension of IHOP. The truth is, Stephen Venable is as dedicated to IHOP as it gets.

A new Hollywood epic on the life of Noah has stirred controversy among Christians, Jews and others who have pre-screened the film, as they state that the movie largely leaves out one important foundation: the Bible.

| Latter Rain: The Spawning of Apostasy|
|by Kevin Reeves, 1/20/14
LTRP Note: The following article by Kevin Reeves describes the background of much of the Word-Faith, River movement, Latter Rain, IHOP, Joel's Army, Apostles and Prophets movement, etc. taking place today. Mike Bickle, Rick Joyner, John Wimber, and many others rose out of the 1940s Latter Rain movement. Followers believe that the Latter Rain "revival" is the latter rain referred to in such Scriptures as Jeremiah 3:3, Joel 2:23, and Hosea 6:3. These movements have now intersected with the contemplative prayer movement; now combined with Purpose Driven, the emerging church, Willow Creek, etc., a powerful mystical body is merging as an apostate, end-time church.
