Divine personal encounters with God?

Charlatan: A false teacher who claims to have had a personal visitation with Jesus and/or God, such as Beth Moore, Jesse DuPlantis, Mike Bickle from IHOP, Kim Walker Smith and others. The next appearance of Christ will be seen by the entire world, not by a few, in secret.

"Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. 25See, I have told you beforehand. 26So, if they say to you, ‘Look, he is in the wilderness,’ do not go out. If they say, ‘Look, he is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it." (Matthew 24:23-26).




WWUTT stands for When We Understand The Text, and their website and Youtube channel is a great resource rebutting common false teachings and fallacies in Christianity these days. Their videos are usually 2 minutes or under but are clear and verse-packed.

  2. And not only that, there are those who say often, "I have a word from the Lord" or "God spoke to me" or "I had a dream" or "God gave me a vision" or "I have a prophetic word" and the audience does not walk out, but thinks they're hearing from heaven! They are not opening the Bible and teaching directly from the text but from their own imaginations, leading others to believe in "a great outpouring of the Spirit" or "Joel's army" or "the seven mountain mandate" or "the latter rain" or "the final generation of warriors." Its simply exhausting to hear. And the people follow and their congregations grow. Few there be that have ears to hear and follow the voice of the Shepherd.

  3. Whuut? I thought the word of God said Jesus is seated at the right hand of God the Father-Romans 8:34. These people are having chimeras
