Split between NAR and Charismatic Movement
A recent devilishly designed split between Charismatics / Pentecostalism and NAR has taken place. Pay attention my friends.
As of the last few months a split / shift has taken place where Charismatics are denying having anything to do with NAR and are in fact going out of their way to expose NAR churches and leaders. At the same time you have NAR apostles and prophets denying that they are in fact NAR because they do not fall under C. Peter Wagner’s ‘New Apostolic Reformation’.
They make statements like, “what’s this NAR thing? Never heard of it” or “we are not NAR because our fire is not kundalini fire but godly fire” or “we don’t call ourselves prophets or apostles therefore we are not NAR”.
And guess what? People are falling for these lies left right and centre.
I stumbled across this split/shift recently after I joined a Facebook group that exposes NAR. I was soon shocked to find out that the group was run by Charismatics who still believe in the calling down of fire, speaking in tongues and other manifestations but in a more orderly manner.
So according to them…
- NAR = kundilini fire, bizarre manifestations and blatant occult teaching.
- OTHER = gentle calling down of ‘supposed godly fire’, orderly manifestations, speaking in tongues, visions, dreams and visitations of Jesus and angels etc.
Latter Rain Teaching
I was kicked out the group very quickly as I tried to explain that the Apostolic and Prophetic, Word of Faith, Charismatic movement etc, all stem from ONE SOURCE and that is Latter Rain Teaching as propagated by William Branham.
Latter Rain Teaching can take on many many forms; from the subtle to the downright disturbing. But it’s still ALL Latter Rain Teaching.
And right now a split has taken place; splitting the downright disturbing from the subtly disturbing.
Taken from Ask Dr Brown website:
So I continued to wonder, “What is this so-called NAR?” I was familiar with the term New Apostolic Reformation, coined by Peter Wagner (more on this below), but it hardly resembled this ominous new “NAR.”
To make matters more interesting, last year, some colleagues began sending me links to articles and videos attacking me as one of the leaders of NAR. Worse still, the websites claimed, I denied being part of it. How nefarious and dishonest of me! (To this moment, when I tell the truth about “NAR,” I’m called a liar. It would be very funny if wasn’t very sad.)
I began to ask other colleagues about NAR (or, in full, the New Apostolic Reformation). Almost to a person, they responded, “What is NAR?” Yet they, too, were alleged leaders in this so-called world movement! How is it they never heard of it either?…
“To this day, when I bring up NAR to colleagues, either they have no idea what I’m referring to, or else they say, “That was Peter Wagner’s organization.” …Please read this entire article: https://askdrbrown.org/library/dispelling-myths-about-nar-new-apostolic-reformation
Everyone is Exposing Everyone
Right now everyone is now exposing everyone, or just outright denying that they know what you’re speaking about.
NAR are denying they are NAR, WOF are exposing NAR, Charismatics are exposing NAR and WOF and so on.
And then you have the Hebrew Roots Movement drawing Christians looking for some normality into the Kabbalah. And let us not forget to mention the Calvinists/Reformed (with their mirraid of websites exposing all things Charismatic) who then trap those falling out of Latter Rain Teaching into their claws.
The mingling and mashing of doctrines across all these movements is becoming very blurry, but at the end of the day it’s all part of the Latter Rain movement.
My friends, watch and pray, test everything according to scripture. We are living in perilous times, nothing is as it seems, except the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
None of us are immune to deception. It’s how long you stay deceived because of disobedience to the Holy Spirit’s warnings, that will ultimately hurt your relationship with Jesus Christ because you have allowed Satan a foothold into your MIND.
If you have been deceived, repent immediately and get back on track with Jesus Christ and listen to Him through His Word. Stay on the narrow path.
