Andrew Strom and J Lee Grady – False Teachers waiting for the Spiritual Revival of the Roman Catholic Church
Andrew Strom and J Lee Grady – False Teachers waiting for the Spiritual Revival of the Roman Catholic Church
Andrew Strom has tried desperately to play the role of the ‘good guy’. But I have repeatedly shown him up for what he is; just another false teacher. See here: Andrew Strom, Revival School, John the Baptist TV.
Now Andrew Strom sent out this newsletter written by Lee Grady from Charisma Magazine. Charisma Magazine (owned by Stephen Strang) and Lee Grady are part of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). In fact Andew Strom is also part of the NAR but he will plead differently, yet his doctrine and fruit tell you otherwise.
Andrew’s website logo is that of FIRE, we know that Biblically the Holy Spirit is not fire, see my articles here: The Biblical Holy Spirit vs.The False Unholy Spirit of Fire and here: Fire of The Holy Spirit – Judgment or Anointing?
The COMING SPIRITUAL TSUNAMI in THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
by J. Lee Grady [DTW note in Green]
I believe God showed me He is sending a wave of His Spirit to
bring reformation. [DTW note: Is Lee Grady implying that the Roman Catholic Church is going to go from a Babylonian Pagan religion to a Christian religion? I don’t think so. No where is this mentioned in the bible. Let’s analyse this newsletter in respect of the false beliefs that Lee Grady and Andrew Strom follow.]
More than 10 years ago, I had the most vivid dream I´ve ever
experienced. I told my wife about it the moment I woke up because
it was so profound. The scenes are still etched in my memory.
I dreamed I was standing inside the Vatican. Keep in mind that
I´ve never been a Catholic, and I´ve never visited Italy. But in my
dream, I was in an ornate hall decorated with marble columns
and a fancy paved floor. I walked over to a huge, arched window
where I could see a panoramic view of Vatican City.
Suddenly a huge wave appeared on the horizon. A tsunami was
coming. The wave got closer and closer, but I did not feel panic,
even though I could hear people running and yelling as they
prepared for the impact. I stood near a wall and braced myself.
When the wave hit, the palatial building began creaking and tilting.
Antique tables, chairs, candelabra and statues began sliding to
one side as the floor moved. Chandeliers were hanging at odd
angles. Within minutes the floor was perpendicular to the ground
and more furniture came crashing down. The movement continued
until the floor became the ceiling. More religious icons, statues
and paintings fell and broke into pieces.
In my dream, I did not feel anxious about this catastrophe. Nor did
I ask the obvious questions: How could a tsunami reach that far
inland since the Vatican is almost 20 miles from the Mediterranean
coast? How could a tsunami turn a huge building upside down?
And why was there no water anywhere? I knew in my dream that
what I had witnessed was a spiritual event. [DTW note: There is Vatican I and then there is Vatican II. Vatican I is the stiff upper lip, speak Latin or die version of the Roman Catholic Church. Vatican II is the Roman Catholic Churches re-evengelization program to take over the world under the disguise of a re-worked ‘Christian-look-a-like-doctrine’ that spreads like wild FIRE (Note Andrew Stroms Logo). The Roman Catholic Churches greatest evangelist to spread this doctrine was Billy Graham: See here: (The New Evangelical – Evil fit for a New Dark Age). The Word of Faith movement and the Apostolic movement, the Emergent movement and everything in between, is nothing but the Vatican II’s Catholic doctrine being spread across the world.]
At that point I heard a commotion at the other end of the hall.
When I got close enough, I discovered a group of Catholic nuns
and priests who were praying in the Holy Spirit. They had their
hands raised and they were worshiping God fervently, as if they
had experienced another Pentecost. [DTW note: There is going to be NO move of God over the Roman Catholic church, the RCC however plays a huge part in biblical prophecy during these last days.
1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
“The apostle John was greatly disturbed (marveled with admiration) at the sight of the drunken woman because his expectations of seeing a pure, holy and untarnished Bride of Christ was shattered by this abominable vision of a harlot riding a beast.” —>Church Headed Back to Rome or is it Babylon?
It is because of the infiltration of Vatican II’s evangelization program into the genuine Christian church turning her into what she is today; unrecognizable, a whore. What we have now is a false Christianity, a neo-Catholicism. What Lee Grady and Andrew are speaking about, is they are expecting Vatican II, this Neo-Catholicism, to come back at the Roman Catholic Church as a whole and overtake Vatican I. ]
The atmosphere was spiritually charged. Yet, as these people
prayed, a man dressed in ornate religious garb began to shout
angrily at them in Italian. He was obviously not happy with the
way these Catholics were behaving. [DTW note: Yes Vatican I is very formal and wont like the strange manifestations of this STRANGE FIRE from Vatican II, but it will sweep across the Roman Catholic Church never the less as it brings all ‘so called Christian’ faiths together under one false spirit]
This upset me, and I began
to rebuke him. I was speaking in my prayer language, so I didn´t
know what I was saying. But I knew God was rebuking the leaders
who were opposing His work.
At that point, I woke up. And I felt the Holy Spirit say to me: “I
am going to turn the Catholic Church upside down.” [DTW note: With Vatican I and all their pompous parading up and down in their garments, this will feel like the Catholic church is being turned on it’s head. People who do not understand what is going on, thinking this FIRE spirit is of God will actually believe that Catholics are getting saved, but they are not. As I explained earlier, it’s just a more vibrant version of Roman Catholicism sweeping back over them, and some of the more ceremonial persuasion wont like it, they prefer Vatican I without the tongues speaking and convulsing on the floor.]
I don´t believe all dreams are from God. Sometimes our brains
just think in Technicolor while we sleep. Other times a dream is
simply a crazy subconscious reaction to the pepperoni pizza
we ate before bedtime. But in this case, I have come to believe
God was showing me something big that He plans to do in my lifetime. [DTW note: Yes this is big, but not how you believe it to be. Your vision Lee Grady has been given to you by Satan and you interpret it for those who do not know their bibles like yourself. You have been tricked and you trick others.]
Pope John Paul II was still in office when I had this dream. Pope
Benedict has since come and gone, and this week, cardinals are
electing a new leader-at a time when the world´s 1.2 billion
Catholics have been reeling from reports of child abuse and sex
scandals among clergy.
I believe a great shaking is coming to the Catholic system, and it
will have both positive and negative impact. God is not pleased
with man-made religious structures (in any denomination) [DTW note: Let me tell you what impact it will have. Those in the higher echelons of the Roman Catholic church are expecting this unholy fire to come sweeping through their church soon in fact it is doing so already; they know because they created Vatican II and sent it off 50 years ago (see here: The True Spirit of Vatican II) – sooner or later it would come back. Lee Grady and Andrews ‘positive’ impact is that people are going to get saved by this TSUNAMI from God. Wrong! Lee and Andrews ‘negative’ impact is that the Vatican powers-that-be will try and stifle this supposed wave of God. Wrong! This is not a Christian movement, people are not going to be getting saved, the RCC is not going to be turned on its head and smash their idols and correct their 10 commandments and repent of their billion sins and converted to biblical Christianity. ]
that hinder people from knowing Him, and He is serious when He asks
us to tear down the idols we have created to take His place. In
the end, God always judges idolatry.
On the flip side, He also cares about the millions of people in the
Catholic Church who call upon the name of Jesus and who desire
His presence. [DTW note: Yes God is, John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” And any Catholic who genuinely seeks Jesus Christ the Son of God and repents of their ways and leaves the RCC behind them will be saved. It is interesting that Lee Grady makes use of the word, “…who desire His presence”. This is contemplative spirituality talk. You do some form of meditation to enter God’s presence. This is not the biblical presence of God that is mentioned in the Bible but a mystical presence. The Biblical understanding of God’s presence is this: When you are born again Jesus Christ’s blood washes away our sins and this is a covering that presents us holy and unblameable and spotless in God’s sight. It is the only way for us to enter into His presence. If it was not for Jesus’ blood you would not be able to stand before God. Jesus is our mediator and He brings you into God’s presence. What do we have to do? Nothing, nada, no rituals, no prayers, no nothing. The mystical way on the other hand; is that you need to meditate in order to feel/enter God’s presence.]
For them, the coming wave of God´s power will
unleash a new hunger for the Holy Spirit and God´s unadulterated
Word. As corruption is exposed and structures are shaken, I
expect to see Catholics around the world experience a 21st-
century reformation movement. Traditionalists will fight it, of course,
but dead religion is powerless when faced with genuine spiritual
awakening. Young reformers from various nations will challenge
the system and say, like Moses said to Pharaoh, “Let My people
go” (Ex. 5:1). [DTW note: Yes it will be the youth that are going to be reforming the RCC from the inside out, because these are the ones who are being targeted by Vatican II. You just have to look at Louie Giglio, John Piper (Calvinist/Catholic) and his Passion conferences as we draws in thousands upon thousands of youngsters and teaches them contemplative spirituality and spreads the FIRE. Beth Moore, John Piper leads the Youth into Lectio Divina at Louie Giglio Passion’s Conference 2012]
I know there are many of my evangelical brothers who have written
off Catholics as heretics, and they leave no room for redemption
or reformation. They´d rather see the whole system crash and burn. [DTW note: No Lee, it’s not that we would rather clearly see the whole system crash and burn, it’s because that is what the Bible says is going to happen, my goodness, when are you going to READ YOUR BIBLE?]
Perhaps they forgot that we have our own idols, sex scandals and
institutional corruption, and that we need a spiritual tsunami to
turn us upside down as well. I´m bracing myself as I pray. Send
the wave, Lord. [DTW note: Please provide scripture to back up your vision Lee Grady or Andrew Strom? How about that one! 🙂 I would like verses for the times we are living in now, that says the Roman Catholic church is going to get reformed and saved. Thanks. I’m waiting.

One thing seems to be certain – after reading this article again – Strom was right when he said they were waiting for the revival of the RCC. I discussed with Deborah that I found it strange that there were so many “revivals” worldwide that are also suffering massive persecution… only to discover that these “new” churches are mostly either Roman Catholic or have a strong Ecumenical character.
The latest now is the growing church in Iran https://churchleaders.com/news/288330-story-irans-church-two-sentences-mark-howard-the-gospel-coalition.html
After little research I discovered that this “movement” is driven by the ecumenical Elam Ministries and endorsed by “world famous “Christian leaders”, Dr Ravi Zacharias, Anne Graham Lotz, Francis Chan, Jill and Stuart Briscoe, Dr George O. Wood and Dr Louie Giglio – which shared messages of support and prayer for the Iranian church as it receives the new Persian Bible translation”
I am not saying Christians are not being persecuted, but the extent is not what is being portrayed in the media. Or maybe it is but we don’t see that in the media.
More proof we live in times of apostasy and not massive revival.
As Debbie says… thousands are dying and persecuted for a false Christ.
