Do not scoff at prophecies  - 1Thessalonians 5: 20 (NLT)

http://m.rollingstone.com/culture/news/love-and-death-in-the-house-of-prayer-20140121

The link above is to a story coming out in next week's Rolling Stone magazine. It is a frightening tale of abuse, manipulation, sexual assault, murder and the dangers of demonic influence over people chasing the spiritual experience instead of chasing the Spirit Himself. The story comes to us from the campus of the International House of Prayer University. IHOP is a charismatic phenomena in Kansas City. Founded by renowned false teacher Mike Bickle, tens of thousands of people are involved at IHOP, including countless youth who are taught contemplative prayer, dominionist theology, and the ever popular "little gods" heresy. They use the eastern mysticism chanting worship that Jesus Culture makes famous and have 24 hour a day "prayer" rotations where people walk around muttering and occasionally screaming Jesus! This is nothing more than a new manifestation of the old Latter Rain heresies which eventually brought us the horrifically heretical "holy laughter" movement, the spasmodic Brownsville "revival", and the disgraced drop kick preacher, Todd Bentley. Right in the middle of this is the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and the Kansas City prophets, of which Mike Bickle is an integral member. Bickle claims divine revelation and that God whisked him around in a golden chariot to show him to start up IHOP. As with most self proclaimed prophets, they simply cannot tell the difference between the God they claim to serve and the demons they have draped all over them:

These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ. But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. In the end they will get the punishment their wicked deeds deserve.  - 2Corinthians 11: 13-15 (NLT)

You cannot continue to play in the devil's playground and think you won't get dirty. You cannot continue to play little boys games in the spirit realm and think you can avoid the realities of the spirit realm. The Bible speaks about the seven sons of Sceva in the Book of Acts. Sceva was a local priest so these seven sons must have known all about religion. They must have known all the fancy rituals just like Mike Bickle and IHOP. They must have dressed the part and sounded the part but unfortunately for them they were not part of the part. They were merely playing little boys games in the spirit realm, calling on the name of Jesus who Paul preaches to try and cast out demons. Just like the Kansas City Prophets and their ilk are playing little boys games in the spirit realm. What IHOP has now learned, just as the seven sons of Sceva learned before them, is when you play where you have no authority, sometimes the demons answer:

But one time when they tried it, the evil spirit replied, "I know Jesus, and I know Paul, but who are you?"   Then the man with the evil spirit leaped on them, overpowered them, and attacked them with such violence that they fled from the house, naked and battered.  - Acts 19: 15-16 (NLT)
