And God was doing extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons that had touched his skin were carried away to the sick, and their diseases left them and the evil spirits came out of them. Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists undertook to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, "I adjure you by the Jesus whom Paul proclaims." Seven sons of a Jewish high priest named Sceva were doing this. But the evil spirit answered them, "Jesus I know, and Paul I recognize, but who are you?" And the man in whom was the evil spirit leaped on them, mastered all of them and overpowered them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. - Acts 19:11-16 (ESV)
Kathy DeGraw fancies herself a "Prophetic Deliverance Minister." Now if you were wondering if you missed this crucial office discussed in the New Testament you would be wrong. It is of course never discussed because it is simply made up. It is part of the Charismaniacal landscape within the apostate church today. These people roam the church circuit to do fake healing services and deliverance ministries, if the price is right of course. A quick visit to Kathy's website for example finds that she only charges $200 for her e-course in deliverance ministries. Now if you want to learn how to fake a deliverance from witchcraft that costs a mere $300 for the e-course. The keys to self-deliverance? A paltry $130. Generational curses or destroying fear? Only $150 each! The real deal though is if you want to join Kathy's inner circle, oops, I meant Apostle Kathy. The price of personal (although limited) mentorship? Just an ongoing fee of $50 per month! Adjusting for inflation over centuries, I think that is $50 more per month than the Apostle Paul charged Timothy! Before you start thinking that is a rip-off, consider that it includes prayer covering, priority seating at special events and direct email communication! I don't think Jesus even gave His disciples His personal email address! I say this as a backdrop to reviewing her latest article on Charisma News, linked above. Skipping her intro, Kathy seems to vomit on paper ever single absurd Charismaniacal fake power and declaration that the industry uses. Let us reason once more:
"I destroy and completely abolish every demonic system set in operation against the financial system of the USA and the world. Every evil perpetrator trying to extinguish monetary success and economic abundance, I rebuke you and diffuse your plans and purposes against our economy and financial structure." - Kathe DeGraw
Yes, we all know how invested the devil is in destroying capitalism. This reveals up front however that the NAR and dominionism still play a powerful part in these popular heresies. In idolizing America, these people never stop to see how they do not actually worship God. Not to mention that we do not possess this amazing power she seems to think she wields. In her own mind, the enemy, Lucifer, has set up his demonic systems arrayed against financial systems but look out! He did not count on Kathy DeGraw being able to"tell him to stop? Seriously? I know, I know, rebuke, destroy, abolish and diffuse but at the end of the day she is basically saying stop and she believes she has the power to simply make the devil stop by saying so. That is quite an ego.
