Remember earlier we outlined the false authority paradigm set up by the NAR and now we see it in action. Mike Bickle and Lou Engle are two of the most egregious false prophets/teachers on this planet. Dr. Michael Brown is a gatekeeper for such men as well as for Jennifer who he had on his radio program this past week.
Yvonne seems to be coming from the same spirit. Again, after I reviewed the material she sent I told her it was nonsense. Her response to me: "Depart from me I never knew you, is what you will hear when you stand before Him, for promoting and profiting from a heretical cult. I should have realized you were part of it." Yvonne's indictment doesn't bother me a bit. I just look back to the introduction of the Jesus' Sermon on the Mount: "Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you" (Matt. 5: 11-12). -- Jennifer Leclaire
So we come full circle back to the bloated sense of self importance. To Jennifer Leclaire, a random email trying to get her to see the errors in what she supports is akin to the persecution that Jesus warns the church is coming for them. Wow. I think beheaded saints in Iraq and underground brothers and sisters in China would disagree with you Jennifer. That's ok; you can just say you were flowing with a spirit of error. Jennifer finishes:
As much as I respect those who are faithful witnesses to the truth--and as much as I acknowledge there is strange fire in the charismatic movement and deception (and even heresy) in some camps in the body of Christ, we have to be extremely cautious in flippantly condemning someone to hell because they don't agree with us. When it comes to heresy we expose it and refuse to fellowship with those propagating it, but even then we don't chase them down and persecute them. We pray that God will break in with light and expose the darkness that has clouded their minds. To take any other approach is simply a wrong spirit that could ultimately lead you into a deeper deception than the one you believe they are exposing. -- Jennifer Leclaire
Note the not so subtle shift Jennifer tries here. She presents ONE person who has emailed her and suggested that her refusal to see IHOP as a cult means she will go to hell and she has now applied it broadly as a problem to make herself appear to be the victim! Her final point is not only ridiculous but it is unbiblical. The key verse makes it beyond clear that those in leadership positions in the church are required to rebuke what is false so her notion of taking no other approach but prayer sounds pious but is actually in violation of Scripture. This reveals however some of the deeper insidious problems when you compromise the Gospel within the NAR and their false authority paradigm. We don't chase down and persecute the wolves that are tearing apart the sheep of the Lord? Seriously? She is speaking here about heretics by her own admission! People who lead people away from Jesus Christ. She uses the term "persecute" to make the wolf the victim and then calls for prayer for the predator. Wow again.
No Jennifer. I will pray for your victims. I will pray for the people you fleeced for $300 to attend your "prophet school" that you run of a hotel room by the Fort Lauderdale Airport. I will pray for those who sent you an additional $300 to join your bogus "prophet network" so they could be under your "covering." I will pray for anyone who believed your prophecy about a great awakening coming to this country. I will pray for anyone who shelled out the ten bucks for your book about your false prophecy regarding the angels of abundant harvest. If you happen to read this and feel badly just realize that your feelings are from God so He must want you to feel badly. But take heart because you released the angels of abundant harvest so I am sure they will beat back that sneaky squid stalker you got. Unless you are moving in a spirit of error that is.
