Rhema Church – Believe Belong Become God

ray and zelda mc cauley

Finally I got pictures of the huge billboard outside of Rhema Church in Randburg pastored by Pastor Ray McCauley.  In fact for all those signs and wonders  seekers out there, this is a SIGN just for you.  Beware of what Rhema Church preaches…


So what do we have here.

  1. Yes, YOU can do anything you want *
  2. * With a little help from GOD
  3. Believe, belong, become Rhema


So God is not really needed anymore, because YOU can become Rhema.

Rhema means:

  1. A Greek word that means any spoken word having a definite meaning.
  2. Greek: “word” – derived from the verb “to speak.”

So Rhema means Word or Spoken Word

Who IS the Word?

John 1:14     “And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

Jesus Christ the Son of God IS THE WORD.

Testing to see if Rhema Church tells the Truth and preaches Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God?
1 John 4:2    “By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God;”

If anyone denies that Jesus Christ has NOT come in the flesh they are NOT from GOD.

So lets re-cap:
1)  YOU can do anything.
2)  With very little help from GOD.
3)  Because YOU can become the WORD.
4)  YOU can transcend and become GOD.
5)  YOU can replaced “JESUS CHRIST THE WORD MADE FLESH” with YOURSELF (a mere human).
6)  Because JESUS CHRIST IS the ONLY SON of GOD  made flesh, YOU DENY JESUS CHRIST if you follow and accept this occult teaching.
**  Notice that YOU and GOD are both in capital letters on the sign board.
So Rhema has finally exposed themselves good and truly and are full blown into New Age / Occult / Contemplative Spirituality where YOU can become GOD.
If you are following this satanic teaching (known or unbeknown to you), REPENT, ask JESUS CHRIST the ONLY SON of GOD to forgive you and get back on the narrow path.
Thank you Rhema for spending all that money on that gigantic sign board, it must have been expensive.  But I tell you, it was worth every cent because it’s a sign to those who are seeking the truth and were not sure what Rhema really teaches, and now they  know.  AND it’s definitely NOT the WORD of GOD.

    Dear Deborah
    Just one question , have you actually gone to a service at Rhema?
    It’s very obvious that you have not ,because you understanding and comments about Pastor Ray, Rhema Church etc is a lie from the pit of hell.What Bible do you read? forgive me that makes it 2 questions. Because my Bible clearly says that lying is a sin , that satan is the father of lies… liars ?????? Actaully rather than taking offence , i pity you as you sound like a mixed up , bitter , and very miserable person. I hope that you will allow the Spirit of Truth into your heart. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you His Peace.And that the God of Abraham , Isaac and Jacob will bless you and keep you.

    Really? Obvious that I have not? Take off your blinkers. I’ve been there so many times and I smiled at Ray MacCauley while taking notes. I might have even sat next to you 😉

    While you are in the bookstore, look for Ray MacCauley’s book called, THE SECRET PLACE. Buy it. Before you read it I want you to research Contemplative Spirituality and Mysticism (use the internet). Read the book. Pray before you do that Jesus opens your eyes to the truth. Read this too: http://www.discerningtheworld.com/2009/10/20/ray-mccauley-and-joel-osteen-at-the-coca-cola-dome-oct-09/

    Have a nice day.

    @ debra,
    Reading your remarks to deborah I see your anger coming through and you make it personal. Remember, why this site is here and accept that there are those who take huge chances by trying to get the truth out. I dont always agree on everything Deborah says but its great that we have Christians like her who tells it like it is. I dont know Deborah at all so I am not here trying to promote her site. You attack her as does the world attack us Radical Christians and quiet honestly I dont see love coming through you. I assume you support Rays policial agendas which might I tell you he supports Zuma who in turn is a Pagan, BUT like so many faith movement followers you will not see the truth behind a man you follow so blindly. Its very much like the Catholics who follow the Pope. Try following Jesus more and read your bible you will be shocked to dicover that the falling away has begun and the faith movement is part of this falling away. Please study the last book of the bible, Revelation and the book before it, Jude. Its no accident that Jude is just before Revelation as its about the Great Aposty which I see has become. Cain was the first apostate.

    Now dont go saying I have never been to Rhema, as I sat under that false Religion for 2 years.
    I want to tell you as well, that I have learnt more by reading and sudying the word since I left.

    Ray was my brothers neighbour so I know so much more than you and yes man is falable (expect for the pope) so Ray is allowed to have his downfalls, BUT he does not live according what he preaches.
    Truly, I urge you to come out of her before its too late and I say this to many other well meaning Christians who have not seen how wrong the faith movement is.
    I fought with family members and lost loved ones as I tried to protect Ray just like you are now and as I look back I am ashamed of what I had become. Those people who I hurt with my nasty words may never come to know JESUS and I ask for forgiveness.

    I am now a mature older Christian and I say to you in love, Dont make the same mistake as me. I did more wrong and so are you right now.
    The word of God has so many hidden nuggets and its so exciting to find them as then you just know that GOD is dealing and talking to you. I find nuggets almost on a daily basics and I sometimes end up hugging myself picturing it is GOD. Smiles. Silly me.
    Never again will I follow mans teachings.

    BTW you did not stumble on this site by accident. God is dealing with you and consider looking at other peoples view points on certain matters and go back to the word and I know that I know GOD will reveal to you his word.

    Sites this one has allowed me to see what is really going on in the world re the great aposty and if you dont agree with what you read there is always prayer and God will and does if you really seek him show you what matters in what you read here. I do not believe Deborah lies and do not pity her as she has Christ in her. Never pity a Christian when you are one yourself. That amounts to saying you are not a christian. Why on earth pity a born again beliver when you yourslef are one….or are you?

    You come over as one who lacks love. Dont. Love all people and gently encourage them back if you think they are wrong.
    In the mean time read the last book of the bible as there are blessings to those who read it and listen and maybe you can one day report back to me and tell me how many blessings you noted are there for you.

    We are in exciting times.

    Take care.

    Craig Gilliam confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh and also confesses that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God,and his personal Lord and Saviour, and is therefore not an antichrist and is praising God and God alone victoriously. To God alone be the glory.

    Can I put you in touch with someone else outside of Rhema who I think will do a far better job in counseling?

    Pastor Brian can be contacted on email terryh807@gmail.com and is no longer with Rhema

  8. Really!?! That’s just the weirdest thing that Pastor Brian just happened to be reading this article and saw Bully’s message. WEIRD. Uncanny. Virtually impossible?

  9. Peter says:

    Pastor Brian is an awesome man of God and he and his entire family were thrown out of Rhema because they challenged them on certain issues. Did you not see the newspapers. This was about 3 years ago now.

  10. Peter

    Nope I did not see the newspapers. I would love for Pastor Brian to write an article stating exactly what issues he had with Rhema and I will post it on this website (pending review of course). He can find my email address under the ‘About this Blog’ – ‘Contact Details’, above.

    I went to a revival two nights in a row @ a Rhema church. I seen the sign outside of the church that read “Rhema word”. Well after the second night of revival, I actually googled the word Rhema. Reason being, this Pastor was saying some awful things to people in the church. He told this male that he was going to “hell”, in front of the whole church. The reason he told him that is because he thinks he’s gay. I thought that was so cruel and mean. This preacher also calls himself a Prophet. He also prophesized on a lady and said cruel things to her in front of the church. He claims that telling the truth is the thing to do. It also seems that he is asking for money and states that he don’t want any broke members around him. I live in a small town, what some people would call the country. I know something just didn’t feel right about this!
