Global Ecumenical Event Partners NAR, Word-Faith and Mainstream Ministries

One of the largest ecumenical event ever – Global Outreach Day (‘GOD’), or ‘GO 2020‘ – is set to for May 30th 2020, and the promoters are proclaiming a “Special edition of Global Outreach Day. Join thousands of churches and ministries worldwide and dedicate the month of May 2020 to prayer and evangelism.” and to “Mobilize 100 million believers to reach 1 Billion people with the Gospel in May 2020” . See https://www.go2020.world/home

96 different churches, ministries and para-church orgs are partnered with this event – Almost half are NAR and/ or Word-faith affiliated. Included are some of the most heretical groups known, such as Bethel Redding, Catch The Fire (John Arnott), Cindy Jacobs ‘Generals Int’l’, Mike Bickle’s IHOP (KC), Heidi Baker’s Iris Int’l, Joyce Meyer Ministries and WYAM. The organizers have listed as the top endorsers, the NAR’s Bill Johnson of Bethel Redding, John Arnott and Heidi Baker. see https://www.go2020.world/about/endorsements  

There are number of organizations involved with which I am unfamiliar, but the AOG, Baptist World Alliance, Foursquare and Pentecostal World Alliance, Equip.org (formerly CRI) and the Jesus Film Project are among those involved. The sheer number involved in this ecumenical event is staggering.

The GO 2020leaders are: Steve Douglass: CRU (Campus Crusade for Christ); Loren Cunningham: YWAM; Efraim Tendero: World Evangelical Alliance. That the leaders of this event could draw in so many groups, some of which may well be otherwise generally biblical, is testament to the level deception of the current apostasy. see https://www.go2020.world/about/partner .

Please PRAY for this event – that The Lord would protect people from this ecumenical deception.

Brian Brodersen’s Creation Fest Soliciting for NAR Training School

On their Twitter page, Brian Brodersen’s Creation Fest [UK – August 3-9, 2019] is actively promoting and soliciting for the NAR linked YWAM/ Circuit Riders Training School “21Project”. The CF post says of the 21Project: “Check this out! JOIN 21PROJECT this summer for 6 days of *LEADERSHIP TRAINING for students and young adults who want to take the next step as [NOTE] *influencers, musicians, creatives and messengers.” The CF post then gives a YWAM link that redirects to https://21project.com/

The 21Project webpage claims endorsements by Bethel Redding’s Jesus Culture, by Francis Chan’s “We Are Church” and others. YWAM’s Circuit Riders Facebook shows “Related Pages” and “Pages Liked by This Page as including: Lou Engle’s The Send & Awaken The Dawn, and Heidi Baker’s Global Iris.

CF19 will also feature Anglican Bishop Chris Goldsmith as speaker, and music by Bethel Music affiliate Lindsey Conant and the Circuit Riders, and music by the worship team from Nickey Gumbel’s heretical Holy Trinity Brompton – “Worship Central” [see https://emergentwatch.wordpress.com/?s=worship+central]

See: https://emergentwatch.wordpress.com/2016/10/23/whoreship-central/

The above pic shows a ‘Sneak Peak’ at CreationFest 2019’s program. As CF’s Executive Director, Calvary Costa Mesa’s Brian Brodersen is directly responsible for the ecumenical apostasy on display at his Creation Fest events. Although is it happening ‘over in Europe’, in the UK, and out of sight of many in the U.S. Calvary Chapels, his activities are not without consequence for the church at large.

How serious are the warnings against associating with – (let alone soliciting on behalf of) false teachers – warnings that few seem to heed? Consider THIS:

“Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; for [NOTE] he who greets him shares in his evil deeds!” – 2Jn 1:9-11

Francis Chan’s Continuing Slide into Apostasy

Francis Chan’s slide into apostasy has gone from bad to worse. He has gone from appearances at NAR affiliates such as IHOP.KC, and declaring of IHOP’s leader Mike Bickle, “I love this guy”,  [See  https://emergentwatch.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/francis-chan-endorses-the-apostate-nar-movement/ ] to now promoting his own new NAR linked ministry “We Are Church”.

See https://www.wearechurch.com/history – We Are The Church is intimately linked to YWAM (NAR) and their “21 Project” – See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUp46l2Rj-0

We Are The Church is also intimately linked to YWAM, YWAM’s ‘Circuit Riders‘, Bethel Redding’s Jesus Culture, and to Lou Engle’s ‘The Send‘. See also: https://emergentwatch.wordpress.com/2018/11/26/francis-chan-and-the-heretical-send-2019-event/

Additionally (see above) – Through YWAM’s Circuit Riders network, Francis Chan’s organization ‘Crazy Love‘ is collaborating with major NAR ministries, including YWAM, (the NAR ecumenical) Together (Lou Engle & Nick Hall), Jesus Culture, Dunamis, Pulse (Nick Hall/ Together 2016), and Christ for All Nations (Reinhard Bonnke & Daniel Kolenda – See https://cfanevents.ticketspice.com/light-the-fire-again-pensacola-fl-2019 ] And see: https://crmovement.com/about/

I believe it is now safe to say that Mr. Chan has pitched his tent squarely in the camp of the false teachers/ “prophets” of the New Apostolic Reformation [NAR], and hence, a final warning to mark and avoid his teaching and that of his associates.

Calvary Costa Mesa’s KWVE Radio Now Features Contemplative Advocate Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

The most recent addition to the line-up of preachers on Calvary Costa Mesa’s KWVE Christian radio is author & speaker Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth. Demoss was exposed by Pastor Ken Silva of Apprising Ministries, as far back as 2012, as a promoter of contemplative mysticism and spiritual formation – See Nancy DeMoss Turns listeners to Richard Foster for guidance – See http://apprising.org/2012/06/28/nancy-demoss-turns-listeners-to-richard-foster-for-guidance/

DeMoss has also been cited as a promoter of ‘Circle Making‘ witchcraft (see Mark Batterson’s aberrations) alongside her friend, contemplative advocate Priscilla Shirer. See: Nancy DeMoss “Hearts Revived”, but at what price? A veneer of Christianity hiding Spiritual Formation disciplines, contemplative mysticism & witchcraft?  https://ratherexposethem.blogspot.com/2013/06/nancy-leigh-demoss-hearts-revived-but.html

Calvary Chapel Missions Conference Promotes the NAR’s Michael Brown

The 2019 Missions Conference (Jan. 7) hosted by Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa promoted NAR apologist Michael Brown’s speech entitled: “Jesus, Israel, LGBT politics, speaking in tongues and Donald Trump”.

See https://calvarychapel.com/posts/the-link-missions-2019-livestream-michael-brown-on-current-topics-five-ways-to-be-a-more-effective-leader-more?fbclid=IwAR3e7U1BR5N5Zmx5PxWo2Rdv6ufUdX_Jd5vEQ2fn6whIkiDdoLvqlR_dXxA

Dr. Brown was a key player in the ‘Brownsville Revival’, with it’s charismatic excesses and ‘Holy Laughter’, etc. Brown has since become the chief apologist for the false teachers of the New Apostolic Reformation, even, at one point, denying the existence of such a group.

Here’s Brown last year, in the midst of the very worst false teachers – the NAR core!

So, once again, we have to ask WHY? Why is Brodersen’s Calvary Global Network promoting people such as Michael Brown at their Missions Conference? Might this not legitimize this man and his errors in the eyes of many CC followers? How many will be emboldened to now follow Brown, being as the CGN has thus legitimatized him?

Francis Chan and the Heretical ‘Send 2019’ Event

Francis Chan has once again joined hands with the dangerous false teachers of the New Apostolic Reformation [NAR]. In his latest foray into apostasy, Chan will be a featured speaker at Lou Engle’s upcoming NAR-fest “The Send 2019” – set for Feb. 23, 2019 in Orlando, Fla. [see https://thesend.org/about/]

Chan will be speaking alongside Bethel’s Bill Johnson, IHOP’s Mike Bickle, YWAM’s Loren Cunningham, Heidi Baker, Todd White, Ben Fitzgerald, Daniel Kolenda, as well as Lou Engle.

Chan even does a video promotion of the Send 19:

The Send 2019 is sponsored by the aberrant ministries of Bethel Redding, IHOP, YWAM, TBN and others.

Levi Lusko Speaks Like A Wolf

Aberrant Pastor Levi Lusko continues to promote himself and his books – This time using the marketing theme and logo of a wolf.

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” [Matt. 7:15];

“After my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.” [Acts 20:29];

“Through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you…” 2Pet. 2:3
