It is our belief that all ministries worldwide should have no fear of close scrutiny when it comes to having their words and their work held up to the refining light of God’s holy Word. In saying this, we read that Rene Picota claims to have heard from God and has passed on this ‘revelation’ to the church.
Galatians 1:6-10 “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse! Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”
WHO IS RENE PICOTA?
When you look at the language on their ‘About’ page, it appears that Mr Picota and his wife consider themselves to be Apostles. This means they subscribe to the NAR heresy and furthering the NAR agenda.
We highlight in ‘bold’ phrases in the piece below so you can see the language that demonstrates that they appear to subscribe to the New Apostolic Reformation cult. Picota writes,
Rene and Amber Picota are a powerhouse couple that have an apostolic mandate from God to change the world. They both love to encourage people to step into their destiny and dream bigger dreams with God. Their passion is to raise up leaders and release them into their calling by teaching them how to tap into their divine flow and discover their true identity. The atmosphere of heaven manifests everywhere they minister.

Not only does Rene Picota claim to be apostolic and aligns his theology to the NAR, he is also under the category of Health and Wealth (HAW).
Below you will also see that Picota promotes the HAW and also Word of Faith (WOF) heresy. Notice his HAW language:
“As you partner with God’s purposes…”
“Sow a seed of $33, $333 or $3,333…”
“Every dollar you sow represents a soul we can reach together…”
Furthermore, notice his WOF theology:
“Make a prophetic declaration today and sow…”
It is without question that Rene Picota is a man whose theology needs to be carefully held up to the light of scripture. We advise that you evaluate this ministry’s theology carefully, being as discerning as the Bereans.
Acts 17:11 “Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.”
“The prophetic nature of Rene Picota Ministries is cutting edge and bringing the supernatural power of God around the world. Hundreds of thousands of people receive ministry and prophetic insight for their lives.” [Emphasis ours]
According to Picota, if you are someone who keeps seeing 3:33 on their clock, it means God is ready to release his triple threat anointing (which means he is releasing “triple grace”).
However we read God’s final comment on ‘extra-biblical’ revelation here.
Hebrews 1:1-2 “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.”
Triple Threat Anointing!
That’s why many of you keep looking at the clock and seeing 3:33!
Yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist. – 1 Corinthians 8:6
The number 3 is so precious to me. It represents the mystery of the trinity. God is revealing the mysteries of His Kingdom to those who wait upon the Lord.Those who seek revelation will see and hear. There is a fresh prophetic flow from Heaven being released in this hour on My sons and daughters. Those who long to encounter My glory will come into new realms of My Spirit. I will show you how to move in the supernatural. I will show you how to manifest My miracles, signs and wonders. All will be amazed and they will glorify Me says the Lord.
I know you feel that blessing anointing from the Lord. It is the anointing that breaks the yoke! It is His glorious presence that can bring about change in our lives. As you partner with God’s purposes you will see a harvest in your life.You will begin to experience this triple threat anointing! You will destroy the works of the enemy just like Jesus did and even greater works shall you do.
Let’s join hands together and for the Gospel reach souls. Make a prophetic declaration today and sow a seed of $33, $333 or $3,333 as the Spirit of the Lord leads you. Every dollar you sow represents a soul we can reach together. God bless you for sowing within the next 3 days.
Recorded Personal Prophetic Word

For your donation of $20.20, $200.20, or $2,000.20, you will receive a recorded personal prophetic word within 72 hours. You are not buying a prophetic word. You are simply expressing honor to the Lord by sowing as an act of faith. You are sowing into Rene Picota Ministries allowing us to touch hundreds of thousands people through our online ministry, and win countless souls to Jesus Christ through our church planting efforts and revival meetings across northern America. Every dollar you sow allows us to reach a person with the Gospel. As you sow you are partnering with us and the same anointing that rests on this ministry will invade your life, your ministry, and your workplace. You will have dreams and visions like never before. The sick will be healed. You will prophesy. You will cast out devils. The lost will be saved. This is not for everyone. This is only for those who are ready to see their lives change by the power of the prophetic.
It is not by might. It is not by power but by My Spirit says the Lord! – Zechariah 4:6
