Ekerk’s Stephan Joubert on How To Peel a Banana

Ekerk's Stephan Joubert

Can anyone please tell me how to peel a banana?

In one of his recent articles on his blog Ekerk Stephan Joubert wrote the following little gem of  wisdom .

What is More Dangerous – Terrorism or Deception?

False Teachers, The Real Terrorists of Your Soul - Deception

These are the real terrorists. They are not killing your body. They are killing your soul and smiling all the way to the bank.

Terrorism or Deception – What is More Dangerous?

The recent terrorist attacks in France have once again drawn the world’s attention to the fact that we are living in a very dangerous world. In fact, the understatement of the year would probably be: “Terrorism is on the increase worldwide.”

A recent study shows that the fatalities linked to terrorism are up 60 percent. Alan Cowell of the New York Times reports (18 November 2014).

LONDON – As Western governments grapple with heightened apprehension about the spread of Islamic militancy, an independent study on Tuesday offered little solace, saying the number of fatalities related to terrorism soared 60 percent last year.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon: The Prince of Preachers

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“I do not come into this pulpit hoping that perhaps somebody will of his own free will return to Christ. My hope lies in another quarter. I hope that my Master will lay hold of some of them and say, ‘You are mine, and you shall be mine. I claim you for myself.’ My hope arises from the freeness of grace, and not from the freedom of the will.'”   – Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (19 June 1834 – 31 January 1892), also known as the Prince of Preachers, allegedly preached to approximately 10 000 000 souls. We cannot assert with absolute certainty that all of them are now in heaven because it is impossible to know who among them were the elect.

Not even Charles could have known whether all of them, some of them or any of them are in heaven because he never knew whether his Master had lain hold of them. In fact, he could only express the hope that his Master had sovereignly and monergistically lain hold of some of them.

On Spurgeon’s hope that God will lay hold on some and say to them “You are mine and you shall be mine, I claim you for myself” J Vernon McGee paraphrased Spurgeon as follows:


John MacArthur’s Unanswerable Questions?


John MacArthur’s Unanswerable Questions?

This is probably the most profound and “spiritual” (and most hilarious) thing one of the most distinguished and high-profile preachers of our day has said this century. (Read here.)

John MacArthur said the following when a little kid asked him one of the most important questions there is to be asked, and for that matter, ought to be asked by every sound thinking adult who knows how to use his brains effectively.

[A very young Child]: I listened to your sermon last Sunday, and I was wondering, why didn’t God choose everybody to be saved? [Tom’s comment: “Kids seem to listen more intently to sermons than adults.”)

The Legacy of John Calvin – Part 3

John Calvin

John Calvin and the doctrine of Calvinism’s Esotericism

Whenever the mind is riddled with confusion, perplexity and puzzlement ESOTERICISM seems to be the magic wand that settles and puts it to rest. The dictionary defines the word ‘esoteric’ in the following way: ‘understood by or meant for only the select few who have special knowledge or interest.’ Esotericism is therefore the state or quality of being esoteric. The less knowledgeable and skilful become easy prey for the select few whose esotericisms befuddle their ability to think and decide for themselves. Calvinists assert that no one ought to question or contradict Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion at face value because it is a very difficult and esoteric subject and its profound truths cannot be fathomed instantaneously. It takes years to comprehend it. However, the Bible itself claims that it was written for the simple:

For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. (1Corinthians 1:26-29).

Calvinists Justify the Known Murderer, John Calvin.

John Calvin -Murderer

Known Murderer, John Calvin

Incarcerated criminals who’d received lifelong prison sentences often use foolhardy lackeys to do their dirty work for them. Many crimes are committed by proxy, exonerating the mafia masterminds in jail of some of the most heinous murders – thanks to the stupid lackeys who revere, fear and even worship their bosses in prison. It is a well-documented fact that John Calvin wielded great power over civil and ecclesiastical authorities and could sway the masses to dance to his tune like a proper Pied the Piper (No, I’m not referring to John Piper).

A master of the art of organization, Calvin had been able to transform a whole city, a whole State, whose numerous burghers had hitherto been freemen, into a rigidly obedient machine; had been able to extirpate independence, and to lay an embargo on freedom of thought in favour of his own exclusive doctrine. The powers of the State were under his supreme control; as wax in his hands were the various authorities, Town Council and Consistory, university and law-courts, finance and morality, priests and schools, catchpoles and prisons, the written and the spoken and even the secretly whispered word. His doctrine had become law, and anyone who ventured to question it was soon taught-by arguments that burked discussion, by the arguments of every spiritual tyranny, by jail, exile, or burning at the stake-how in Geneva only one truth was valid, the truth of which Calvin was the prophet.

Todd Bentley (Fresh with the Fires of Hell) visiting South Africa – BEWARE!

todd bentley freshfire ministries

I know this article is a tad late, but I beg you if you went to see Todd Bentley on his South African Crusade Tour with “Prophet Zion 

Matthew” in Durban, followed by visits to the Solid Rock Church in Johannesburg run by Johan van Wyk (who got into a bit of trouble by the Advertising Standards Authority over “miracle healing” adverts), Jabulani Camp Site in Bronkhorstspruit, then Worcester (hosted by YWAM) and finally to Cape Town at Lighthouse Ministries and Celebration Covenant Church International which belongs to the NCMI group headed up by Tyrone Daniels…..please, please, please ask Jesus for forgiveness for going to see this false teacher and ask Jesus to remove any demonic spirit that might have been transferred to you at these meetings.   Todd Bentley’s doctrine is out of the pit of hell and this is where his ‘fire’ comes from as well.  

A short history of Todd Bentley:  Todd started the Lakeland Outpouring back in 2008 in Lakeland Florida which I watched from the beginning to it’s dismal end.  The ‘revival’ was run by a heavily tattood man by the name of Todd Bentley but in the background you had Apostles and Prophets from the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) holding things together, namely, Super Apostle C. Peter Wagner, Rick Joyner, Bob Jones (Kansas City Prophets), Mike Bickle, Paul Cain, Che Ahn, Lou Engle, Stacey and Wes Campbell., Dutch Sheets, Patricia King and many others. Magazines like Charizma Magazine promoted the revival and Wendy and Rory Alec from God TV gave it ample air time. 

Angus Buchan – A ‘False Bible’ in 366 Days for Men

Kobus van Rensburg and his Tower of Babel

Kobus van Rensburg - False ProphetIt has come to DTW’s attention that Kobus van Rensburg from Spirit Word Ministries feels it absolutely necessary to pray for the entire area of Stilfontein on a regular basis.  Now this sounds normal to the unlearned, the problem is, Kobus van Rensburg is not a genuine Christian, he is a false prophet, who teaches the doctrine of Latter Rain / Manifest Sons of God (New Apostolic Reformation).  He is a faith healer, that preys on the sick and those seeking a miracle.  He has built an empire from the money that falls into his collection baskets given to him by people who have health issues and seek God through Kobus van Rensburg as their mediator to heal them.

But now it would appear Kobus is not close enough to God, or is having a problem hearing Him and has built a tower to enter daily and pray over the community.

Yes, I will repeat that in case you think I am joking….

Joyce Meyer – Shocking False Teachings and Quotes

Joyce Meyer

Joyce Meyer is a Word of Faith Charismatic / New Age teacher who preaches along the lines of Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, Fred Price, Charles Capp, Benny Hinn, Paul and Jan Crouch, and those who appear on Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), etc.

Listen to the audio below for a full a list of all her most serious heresies:   (Jesus tortured in hell, Jesus first born again man, Jesus became sin on the cross and stopped being the son of God, our sins atoned in hell and not on the cross, etc., and Joyce Meyer teaches that she is sinless.]

Note:  Audio above posted by DTW is not an endorsement of the author, their website, ministry or any links therein. Readers are cautioned to use discernment at all times and test everything by the Word of God. data-recalc-dims=

Joyce Meyer also teaches that we are little gods, see this article:  Joyce Meyer is a Little God With a Big Christ Consciousness.

But this is one of the latest quotes (2010) from Joyce Meyer and quite an incredible statement:

Miriam Franklin – End Times Prophetic Words ‘Prophetess’ a Fraud? [UPDATED]

Miriam Franklin - End Times Prophetic WordsI was hit with the news that Miriam Franklin from the website, has been sued for multiple counts of fraud.

I hope Miriam Franklin is NOT Guilty of these crimes.   NEWS UPDATE – It has been proved without a shadow of a doubt that Miriam Franklin from Endtimes Prophetic Words, is the same Miriam Rosalind Franklin who owned Diggory Press. (read comments below)


[Notes by DTW –  Yes, it is unfortunate that Miriam from ETPF is the same Miriam Rosalind Franklin from Diggory Press and Meadow books publishing.

DTW will now analyse the situation from a Biblical perspective as to why things when so wrong.  After reading her blog especially the comments section where people asked Miriam questions the following became very clear:

ERROR No.1  She does not believe in a pre-tribulational rapture, because her eschatology beliefs are Post-Tribulational. (Apologies, I thought she was amillennial, but Byron supplied a comment below showing me she was not.) 

ERROR No.2 ETPF does not distinguish the church from Israel in their dispensations, this is called replacement theology.

ERROR No.3  She has clairvoyance and believes she can see into the future – she says she has a 100% track record yet NON of her prophecies have come true – therefore she is a FALSE PROPHET.

The Kuyper Calvinism of Rick Warren

Rick WarrenThe Calvinism of Rick Warren

by Brenda Nickel Friday, 25 November 2011 –

Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Community Church in Lake Forest, California often finds himself at the center of controversy for joining hands with those of questionable doctrine and practice. One of the more surprising partnerships in recent years is his attachment to Calvinism and not just any Calvinism but what he cleverly calls “Kuyper Calvinism.” His switch to Calvinism has made for some interesting bedfellows as people on both sides of the issue are now related to one another and trying to manage their new found “cousins” in their family.


Albert Mohler


Rick Warren’s shift to Calvinism was officially announced in 2007 when he was accepted into the membership of Together for the Gospel (T4G), a Calvinist organization that began with conservative Calvinists Ligon Duncan, Mark Dever, Al Mohler and C. J. Mahaney for the purpose of promoting Calvinism’s core “Doctrines of Grace” (aka TULIP). Warren released a statement explaining his association with T4G shortly after his acceptance saying, “I know this is going to be difficult for many to accept, but in the famous words of Martin Luther ‘My conscience is captive to the word of God!’ I look forward to building relationships with those with whom I have disagreed for so long. I am excited to now be a part of the Together for the Gospel team.” While this was Rick Warren’s “coming out” event, it’s not his first mention of Calvinism. He’s apparently held to the sovereign predestining purposes of God for some time.

Televangelist James Robison Praising Catholic Priest

Because we are living in the last days (and boy are we in the last days), we are seeing more and more ‘Evangelists’ like James Robison turning to Rome, and speaking a message that Pentecostals, Protestants, et al need to come together with Rome and work together on common ground.
