Furtick, Elevation Church activate N.A.R. Apostles

“Prophetic Activations” will happen next week at Steven Furtick’s Elevation Church, a clear indicator that Furtick is not just affiliating, but becoming one with the heretical New Apostolic Reformation.

I first noticed Furtick dipping his toe into the signs-and-wonders New Apostolic Reformation movement five years ago when he traveled to Australia for the Presence 2012 Conference with John Bevere, for “a golden fire of anointing, vision and miracles.”

Next Thursday, Friday and Saturday (March 30 – April 1), Elevation’s downtown location is hosting RESET Charlotte, multi-city Apostles and Prophets tour for RESET/ACTIVATE AMERICA. Attendees will be exposed to the activations and prophetic utterances of Apostle John Eckhardt, Pastorix and Apostle G. Marie Carroll, and several other Apostles.

“Prophetic activations will reignite leaders and churches to prophesy. Motionless churches need to be set in motion in order to gain momentum. Prophetic activations are the catalyst to get us flowing again.”

           Apostle John Eckhardt

Here’s what you need to know about Apostle Eckhardt, his networks, and his N.A.R. activities, from his website:

  • Recognized as an Apostolic General with a global voice, John Eckhardt’s mission is to impact nations with the gospel by equipping men and women from around the world to walk in their God-given purpose and fulfill destiny.
  • John Eckhardt is the overseer of Crusaders Church in Chicago, Illinois, which represents the five-fold ministry gifts with a focus on the apostolic, the prophetic, activating spiritual gifts, spiritual warfare and deliverance.
  • As an Apostolic reformer he is called to perfect the saints by imparting biblical truths. He has ministered in over 80 nations in an effort to raise-up strong ministries in the Body of Christ.
  • Eckhardt founded the International Ministries of Prophetic and Apostolic Churches Together Network (IMPACT Network). Churches in over 40 nations affiliated with this growing network that God has raised up as a vehicle for global apostolic reformation.
  • Books include Prayers That Rout Demons, Prayers That Break Curses, Prayers That Bring Healing, Prayers That Release Heaven on Earth, God Still Speaks, Ordinary People, Extraordinary Power, Moving in the Apostolic, Demon Hit List, Apostolic Character, Ruling and Reigning on the Throne of David, How to Put a Demand on the Anointing, Shamar Prophet, Invisible King and His Kingdom, Prayers That Activate Blessings.

Says hostess/pastorix Apostle Carroll:

I really appreciate the opportunity to minister a Kairos Word that gives you the answers  about The Apostolic Reformation!  I pray that what you have been searching for can be found here! Within this website are the activates and Apostolic/Prophetic information that our ministry offers.

    This movement is insidious, extremely heretical and camouflaged enough so the biblically weak cannot see through it. As dangerous as any eastern mysticism or cult.

Then she said there were hundreds of prophetesses in the N.T., totally ignored what I said. She is a proud, confused woman just like all the others who puke out doctrines of devils!

That is not a work, it is simply reaching for a gift offered. Romans 8:29 and 1 Peter 1:2 (kjv) make it clear that predestination and election are according to God’s foreknowledge of what we will do with our will. Not surprisingly the ESV edited out the ‘will” portion of Revelation 22:17.
        Without free will, the lives of Jesus and Paul are meaningless, as are our lives and actions.

If one would read Romans 9 carefully and word for word they would see that Romans 9 is talking about “Nations” (Jacob vs. Esau). The Church HAS NOT replaced Israel. So, then many Calvinists are into Replacement Theology as well. Dave Hunt reminds us that John Calvin got his doctrine from Catholic Augustine in which Dave in his excellent book details in; ‘John Calvins’ Tyrannical Kingdom’. With that said, does not the 7 mountain mandate, and the new Calvinist’s
        preaching seem to imply the same as Calvin’s Tyrannical Kingdom when these so called Prophets and Apostles take over and rule all of us with an iron hand in place of Jesus? Just sayin! Blessings

If I had chosen not to believe per John 3:36b, and instead decided to make sex or alcohol my gods, thenI would not have been saved. God gave me a choice, as he gives all men. I recognized the futility of self and reached out to take hold of the salvation he freely offered me.

        Free will is all over the words of Jesus Christ:

        “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

        He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

        Jesus doesn’t say whoever I have elected …he says whoever believeth. We aren’t robots. We are humans made in his image. We do have the ability, as Joshua noted so clearly, to choose this day whom we will serve. Grabbing a free gift isn’t works and it isn’t righteousness…it’s simply understanding with the mind and heart God gave us all that he paid for our sins with his blood.

        I believe the great weight of scripture points away from Calvinism, and toward a non-robotic earth, where the gospel actually is the power of God unto salvation and where preaching the word has real value.

        God is a righteous, and just God. He does not like sin and He says no sin will go unpunished. Everybody is born a sinner,and on their way to hell. But God because of His Grace will save some. Is He compelled to save everyone,No. If everyone is saved then it would not be called GRACE. If everybody is saved then Jesus’s death is in vain. We then don’t need Jesus Christ.
        So it it wrong for you to say that God wants people to go to hell, they are in that line by their choice. Jesus grieves to see that many reject Him, even after what He did on the cross.

        belorac, the only way I can answer is from my own testimony. The SDA church teaches a form of election and also replacement theology. We had the Bible but they did not make it their authority, it was Ellen G. White who was their authority. When I was 15 I was baptized into the SDA church. I truly thought I was a Christian. One day a friend who was a former Roman Catholic who was born again only 5 years prior (Rome also teaches replacement theology and the Bible is not their authority, it is tradition, etc) she told me to read my Bible. So I started in the book of John. While reading John 3 my eyes were glued on John 3:3 in which Jesus Himself told Nicodemus “Verily, verily I say unto thee Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God”. I prayed right then as conviction overtook me that I was not born again. I prayed Lord, help me be born again. That moment Jesus Christ saved me. I never understood the Word of God before, and I was hungry I could not get enough of the Word of God. I started reading commentaries as well to help my understanding. I see a problem in the church today, many people are being told they are Christians, they are being told that either God is saving all people, or He is only saved a certain elect, and you can ask them what is the gospel (John 3:16, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4) is and they cannot tell you. They have never been convicted of their sin, they have not asked Jesus to save them. He will answer that prayer! He died for each individual person and, so why is it so hard for anyone who is willing to understand, “The LORD is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9 Praise the LORD!

        Q
        Added to that, the “Doctrines of Grace” are TULIP, this is Calvinism. Someone was trying to make a distinction without difference. The system is deductive and the hermeneutics are theologically driven. Remove one plank (let’s say L-limited atonement) and TULIP is gone. It can be added to (J Piper is up to 6 or more points) but logically it only holds together as Calvinism if all 5 points are held to.

        Calvinists look at passages that specify that Christ died for some (His sheep, Church, many, etc) and then read “some” (elect) into John 1:9; 3:16, Rom 5:18, 1 Tim 4:10, Heb 2:9. When it comes to 1 John 2:2 “the whole world” becomes “the elect” then in 1 John 2:15-17; 3:13 and 5:19 “the world” switches back to the whole world.

        The issue of “free will” is a red herring. God is sovereign man is responsible to Him. Faith is neither a work nor meritorious. Man did not devise the way of salvation God did. It is offered to all because Christ paid for ALL SIN. It is rejected by many exactly because they cannot conceive of grace and want to play a part in “gaining” salvation. That is man’s way—boot strap, feel better, be better, earn justification.

        Giving man a free will is what God desired, someone who loved him by choice not a pre-programmed robot. To let man freely choose is an act of love.

        Why would God deprive someone spending eternity in perfect happiness and joy in the presence of their creator forever and ever because an ancestor chose to be stiff necked and rebellious and refused to receive the salvation God graciously provided?

        What if that ancestor before being created said to God I don’t want to be created because I do not want to spend eternity in hell?

        Would it be evil to give into the demand and deprive all the ancestors who will believe eternal bliss?

        Or would it be right for God to say no I am not going to give into not creating you because you are going to be stiff necked and rebellious and not receive the salvation I have provided, that wouldn’t be fair to Q or billions of others.

        But you can’t point me to one passage of scripture that says regeneration proceeds faith including John 3:3. It’s a deductive theological construct. I agree that you are free to believe as you will.

        Rascott I show you two verses Rom.9:16 It (salvation) does not, therefore, depends on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.
        Phil. 2:13. For it is God who works in you to will and according to His good purpose.

        The story of Lazarus is a good example. He was stinking dead for four days. What brought him to life, Jesus’s words ,” Lazarus come forth.”
        So it will be with somebody who is spiritually dead. Jesus has to bring him/her to life before they are able to believe,

        Another good example is the apostle Paul, all his intentions were that day to hunt down the people of The Way, to put them in prison, or kill them. That was the only thing on his mind. He had no thought of believing. But God had other plans for him, and it was a predetermined plan before Paul was even born that he will be a major follower of The Way. You know the rest of this story. But it was God that made him spiritually alive, before he even could believe. The time frame between Regeneration and faith, can be seconds, minutes?? But one thing is true God’s action is first. But God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation. 2 Thess. 2:13

        What I have to say next may confuse you more.
        Just because God has chosen His elect.
        Does not mean that they are automatically saved.
        They still have to except Him as Lord and Savior.
        God will not let sin go unpunished.
        And Jesus will pay that sin-debt in full.

        Israel was God’s elect, but are they saved, no,
        Because the rejected Jesus Christ.
        But there will come a time that a remnant will be saved.

      • This little passage says so very much…Paul to the pagan Athenians, exposing God’s intent to offer himself to all:

        “…God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

        And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:”
        ‭‭Acts‬ ‭17:23-24, 26-27‬ ‭KJV‬‬
        http://bible.com/1/act.17.23-24,26-27.kjv

        A few bonus scriptures, stating that all are without excuse before God. If one has zero chance to be saved then that one certainly does have an excuse:

        “Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”
        ‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:19-20‬ ‭KJV‬‬
        http://bible.com/1/rom.1.19-20.kjv
        “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.”
        ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭19:1-3‬ ‭KJV‬‬
        http://bible.com/1/psa.19.1-3.kjv

        God does the work, drawing ALL to himself per John 12:32, and we have the freedom to respond or not. Paul makes it clear in Acts 17 that he puts everyone in a position on this planet to find him. Believe it…or not.

    In my opinion, the NAR movement will be the vehicle used to go back to Rome. There’s no doubt in my mind, if you connect the dots, see who is speaking at what conference, see who is going to Rome for meetings, hear what some of these wolves are saying, it doesn’t take much to believe that scenario is coming true! Remember folks, the days will be very religious and “spiritual” before the return of The Lord! People will literally marvel at The Beast and the Racks Prophet! The push for ecumenism has reached a howling pitch.

    Joyce Meyer has More Dignity, Grace , Compassion and Integrity as well as Biblical Wisdom in her little finger than you all have. Did not see you mention all the homeless shelters and Homes for women and children she has helped rescue from human trafficking to only mention a few of the organization’s her ministry has helped over the last 40 years !!! What has your organization done for others besides spew hate and venom and judgement .Have you ever met Joyce Meyer and Sat down and had a conversation with her or just take her sermons and books out of context. She is probably laughing at your portrayal of her and her message. If you were to Debate her, she could chew you up and spit you out in comparison of her knowledge, BUT she would NOT Stoop to your level of Ignorance and Paranoia. I will continue to Pray for you to anger and hatred and judgement of others to be replaced by compassion and love.

      […she has helped rescue from human trafficking to only mention a few of the organization’s her ministry has helped over the last 40 years !!!]

      There are numerous secular organizations that are doing the same work, so this doesn’t prove anything one way or another.

      [What has your organization done for others besides spew hate and venom and judgement .]

      Is not rightly understanding the Word of God and warning others about false doctrine important? And, as to judgment, didn’t you just make a judgment? Your paragraph is full of judgment.

        Debbie, for starts read Jude. It says we are to contend for the faith. Read Eze 33 we are watchmen on the wall and must warn others lest there blood be upon us. Read what Jesus said about false teachers and wolves in sheeps clothing. How do you know if someone lies to you? You judge what they say, otherwise you must simply believe everything, everyone tells you. Acts 17:11

        Good morning Rick,

        I call these types of comments “drive-by posts,” never supported with scripture, always emotionally charged and always “don’t judge” crowd generated! They would rather see their sacred cow untouched, steeped in error, spouting a false gospel than standing up for the word of God. It’s pathetic it’s exactly what was foretold to happen in Christianity.

      I know some wonderful atheists, wonderful people who contribute to society in every charitable way imaginable. In God’s eyes it doesn’t mean a thing. No one gets a free pass for being “good.” Not Even false teacher Joyce Meyer, stop judging with emotions, judge using scripture!

      Philippians 3:7-3:8

      7But whatever was an asset to me, I count as loss for the sake of Christ. 8More than that, I count all things as loss compared to the surpassing excellence of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ

    If I were to deny the doctrines of grace, I’d have to throw my bible out. I won’t waste time convincing free willers and I don’t desire them to waste time attempting to convince me. BTW, I have never read anything from Calvin, nor do I defend him. He had some unbiblical ways, but that is between him and the Lord.
