And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds. - 2Corinthians 11:14-15 (ESV)
Modern American Christendom is littered with false prophets and teachers in these end days. The enemy is stepping up his efforts to see as many people as possible on the broad path that leads to destruction. To that end, he finds an endless source of grifters seeking to make a dime by merchandising the gospel and the sheep of the Lord. Many carve out a specific niche, like the previously chronicled Sean Feucht who increased him ministry cash intake by 31,000% in one year. We find grifters playing up the fake healing angle since the days of TBN crusades. Grifters like Mario Murillo or Greg Locke cash in on the political side of the NAR dominionism. YouTube is becoming overrun by the fake deliverance posse and the demonology grift. The link above is to a grift that often might accompany a false prophet or teacher but rarely is used as a standalone con. This is the grift of angels. I remember a few years back, Jennifer LeClaire came out with a book about the angels of abundant harvest. Never heard of them? That's because they do not exist. That did not stop Jennifer from pretending that they did and selling the notion that she could control when to release them. She made her suckers wait until the book was released of course, nod nod wink wink. The above link is to someone I have not heard much about, Blake Healy and his claims of angel interaction are pathetically ridiculous and still somehow deceiving many. Let us reason once more together.
"Have you ever wondered about the presence of angels in your life? By an extraordinary gift God has given him, Blake Healy hasn't had that problem since he was a child. From a very young age, Healy has been able to see both angels and demons. The director of the Bethel Atlanta School of Supernatural Ministry, he's been labeled a seer in the Spirit. Healy has always realized the extraordinary gift God has given him and the opportunity to interact with them. As a youngster, he hardly ever seized the chance to do so." - Charisma News
Let's start with the obvious. The involvement of Bethel reveals all we need to know about the falseness of what we are about to hear. There is nothing true coming out of Bethel, let alone their affiliates. I would say Healey has been taught wrong, but his claim is that he has seen angels and demons regularly since childhood. The key verses remind us that the devil himself disguises himself as an angel of light, so it is of little surprise that his demons do as well. So, we have two choices. The first is that this is all part of an elaborate grift or the second is that Healy is so compromised himself that he cannot properly discern between the emissaries of God and the devil. Throughout this article, Charisma tries to make Healy sound as reasonable as possible describing something so unreasonable. This is beyond extra-biblical. The seer in the bible was basically a prophet who was shown visions by God instead of verbal instruction. The problem is that the final revealed will of God is already recorded in scripture. God did not forget to tell us something that He is using Blake Healy from Atlanta to now share. Even the seers of old do not record this nonchalant way of always seeing angels or demons. That is what Bethel specializes in - the normalization of the supernatural. They take a biblical fragment and blow it up while simultaneously acting like it is no big deal. They run a school of the supernatural in California and apparently in Atlanta as well. They act like they can teach the gifts of the spirit and that anyone can prophesy. Unbiblical nonsense!
'But as his role in the kingdom has flourished over the years, Healy says his interaction with angels has increased so that he can better serve those around him as one of God's messengers.
Because of his gift, Healy has been asked by many curious believers if we, as human beings, have the power to command angels. His answer is simple. "If there's a specific message for a ministry that I serve now, a church that I'm ministering at, if there is a direction for the church, that's where I'll run into that kind of conversation a little bit more," Healy tells Charisma News' John Matarazzo in a recent interview. "It's interesting because the conversation of commanding angels comes up pretty frequently now. "I've heard strong arguments on both sides that, one, you should absolutely not command angels," Healy says. "But others say that you absolutely should have the ability to command angels. My rule of thumb is one of the most beautiful facets of the gospel, and that is that Jesus is our only intermediary between us and the Father. So again, what is beautiful about the gospel is that we have actually been invited into a relationship with God without intermediary."' - Charisma News
More of the Bethel grift. Beloved, allow me to explain the relationship we have been invited into. Jesus is our Savior, because we needed saving from our wretched sinful selves. Jesus is our Lord because we are the created and He is the Creator. That is it. The invitation is to believe He is the Son of God who died on the cross in our place for the forgiveness of our sins. Bethel sells this cozy relationship type that confuses people into thinking Jesus is their boyfriend, wing man, confidant or partner. If that is your relationship, then it is not the real Jesus. Remember the bible says we can follow a false Christ and Bethel specializes in that as well. They have recreated Jesus in their own image. They created a subservient Jesus who just loves them to pieces and is constantly ceding His authority, glory and wisdom to them. Part of that now appears to be angels. These beings which are biblical, answer to God! It is sadly comical that he muses how the conversation about commanding angels is coming up more. Why wouldn't it! He is selling that!
