DTW is Secure



– A Biblical review by Tom Lessing


SANCTIFICATION – An incensed reader wrote a comment complaining that the author of “Neuroplasticity, A science falsely so-called” misrepresents Dr. Michelle Strydom and her teaching on sickness and healing. Instead of responding to Masadi in the usual comment section, I decided to write a follow-up article proving that she is misleading multitudes of people with her erroneous teaching.


Masadi wrote:

I too wonder whether you have actually read the whole book or attended a conference. I have just been to Dr Michelle’s conference a few days ago. Never did

she say or imply that you can heal or change your destiny just by changing your thoughts. The first step is always salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ. What the course teaches is the next step: sanctification, becoming the bride of Jesus for His return. Putting on the armour of God, becoming Love. Regarding healing, the message is repentance from sin and turning away from it. Dr Strydom’s calling was to be a doctor, and I believe that through her relationship with Jesus Christ it was revealed to her what the Bible teaches about healing.


Kobus van Rensburg – Lied about his healing – Multiple times!

Kobus van RensburgIt has come to my attention that Kobus van Rensburg has once again duped his followers into believing that has been healed, however this is far from the truth.

This is the story of Kobus van Rensburgs so called ‘miraculous’ healing.

Kobus was diagnosed with cancer AGAIN after he went into remission. The second time, Prophet Ed Traut prophesied over him and told him that the 2nd time won’t be as long and as bad as the first, wherein he died several times.  Kobus van Rensburg and his wife Annalise flew over to Germany for nearly 2 months where he received treatment at an institute referred to by Johnson Olowokere.  Kobus van Rensburg led his followers on to believe that he received NO treatment at all.   After he came back his body was clean of cancer, but during their time in Germany he was diagnosed with several diseases; like heavy metal poisoning and another, an allergic reaction to the cold.  In the last week of October 2011 he was AGAIN diagnosed with cancer – a 3rd time, this time in his brain and according to the doctors his first two times with cancer was a walk in a park and the chemo and treatments for brain cancer will be the worst he’s ever experienced….

Deon Hockey – Bringing the Toronto Blessing ‘Fire Serpent’ to a Church Near You

Deon HockeyDeon Hockey a South African pastor from Healing Ministries International is a Faith healer who has seen many a so called genuine healing take place under his hands.   Deon is affiliated with Pastor Steve Hill from the USA who started the Pensacola Brownsville Revival (a lead on from the Toronto Blessing).

“It was back in 1991 at a Benny Hinn Crusade that we see laughter break out among the children and  srcset=Rodney Howard-Browne is on stage and called forward by Hinn. Rodney, God has given you a great anointing for this. Let the holy laughter hit them in Jesus’ mighty name…it’s coming [zapped him]…. Pick him up. Now release it on the people, Rodney!” Hinn laid hands on his forehead (transferring the anointing) and he goes down. He then picks him up and inaugurates him into ministry by saying go ahead Rodney. Rodney starts by saying “I command you to laugh in Jesus name “and repeats over and over ad nauseam. This is not the polished stick that the world was exposed to on TBN, airing him on Praise the Lord program or at the Carpenters Home Church. It was raw and awkward but worked nonetheless on those  with weak minds that are willing to receive a suggestion they think is of the Holy Spirit…..

Gift of Speaking in Tongues, Prophecy and Healing

speaking in tongues

Gift of Speaking in Tongues, Prophecy and Healing – is it biblical?

Back in the day at Pentecost, in the upper room, a special gift was bestowed on the disciples that they would be able to go out and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ successfully.  One of the gifts was the ability of speaking in tongues.  Many people today who speak in tongues today seem to think that this gift of tongues was a heavenly language. But this is not true.  The gift of tongues bestowed on those in the upper room spoke an earthly language.  The gift given to the disciples enabled them to communicate with people from other nations who spoke other languages, how else could they spread the gospel.

Acts 2:6-11  “Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.” And they were all amazed and marveled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?”  And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?” Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,” Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,” Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.”


What a Tragedy ‘Prophet’ Kobus van Rensburg

Kobus Van Rensburg - Man in Gods Image - go here to read more about Kobus van Rensburg: 

[NEWS UPDATE – Kobus van Rensburg claims God healed him, and is telling all his followers this.  It has come to my attention that Kobus van Rensburg is in remission, BUT he did receive medication and Chemotherapy.  Kobus van Rensburg is still preaching Latter Rain Manifest Sons of God teaching and even more so promoting that one can be IMMORTAL on earth.  He also teaches his followers that they are Christ.  Please read the comments below (there are many of them) to see the degree of heresy and insanity taught by Kobus van Rensburg.  Also note his followers are not shy in threatening those who stand again Kobus van Rensburg.]

It’s a Tragedy
