ROSEBROUGH’S LATEST SERMON REVIEW EXPOSES BROWN AS AN APOSTLE
Chris Rosebrough from Fighting for the Faith recently reviewed a Michael Brown sermon.
At one stage in the sermon review, Rosebrough highlighted the language of Michael Brown, wondering if Michael Brown considered himself an NARpostle.
Chris quoted Brown and then asked the question to Brown,
“‘Raised you up internationally.’ Well in NAR speak, that makes you an ‘Apostle’. Are you an ‘Apostle’ in the NAR? Are you one of God’s Generals?”

We found the answer to Chris Rosebrough’s question. Yes. Michael Brown DOES consider himself an Apostle. Brown considers himself to be one of God’s Generals.
We managed to track down the sermon Chris reviewed. Before Dr Brown spoke, Fini De Gersigny called Michael Brown an Apostle. This is how Fini de Gersigny introduced Apostle Michael Brown:
If anyone left the NAR in their earlier years, they would know how significant it is bestow the revered title of ‘General’ on someone. Remember, the New Apostolic Reformation believe that they are The End-Times Army (also called Joel’s Army) governed by Apostles and Prophets. So to call Michael Brown “a General in Gods Army” is to call Michael Brown an Apostle.
DR BROWN EVEN FUNCTIONS AS A NARPOSTLE
The popular NAR Apostle Rick Joyner also pushes this End Times Army in his popular book series ‘The Final Quest’ and ‘The Call’. (‘The Call’ was an event that Dr Brown said he was a part of with Dr Lou Engle.)
Before listening to the sermon review, we need to quote what Rick Joyner teaches on the Apostolic Ministry and the Apostolic Commission within the New Apostolic Reformation.
Apostle Rick Joyner says about the ‘Apostolic Ministry’:
“The apostolic ministry will be restored to the church before the end comes. The apostolic message is not in word only, but in demonstration of the Spirit of power. This demonstration will be a church that fully reveals the nature and power of the Lord…
The apostolic ministry requires a commission from God and it requires the substance of spiritual authority. True apostles will not come with theories, forms, recipes, and formulas, but with an impartation of the true life and power of the Lord.”
Source: Rick Joyner, The Apostolic Ministry, US: MorningStar Publications, 2006, pg 91. (Emphasis ours.)
When you listen to this sermon review, Michael Brown is fitting Rick Joyner’s description of an NARpostle.
Rick Joyner also talks about the ‘Apostolic Ministry’. Joyner claims, ‘Our words must become His words, and our works His Works,’ (pg 78), before quoting Ephesians 4 and then stating,
“This is the apostolic commission, and it is far beyond human genius or ability. If we are going to be apostolic, our labor will not be finished until Christ is formed in His people. We must not let any other emphasis eclipse this basic work. We are looking for far more than the manifestation of the sons of God; we are looking for the manifestation of the Son of God in His people. Jesus must always be the focus of our ministry if we are every to be truly apostolic.”
Source: Rick Joyner, The Apostolic Ministry, US: MorningStar Publications, 2006, pg 79. (Emphasis ours.)
In other words, The Apostolic Commission is for Apostles to raise up the New Breed, in this case with Joyner, he still traditionally calls them the ‘Manifest Sons of God’. This is why the NAR focus on raising up children and Prophetic Schools or Schools of the Supernatural – they are nothing more than breeding grounds for the special
mutants New Breed generation to emerge to usher in Christ’s return.
It is fascinating that Chris Rosebrough raised further concern to his listeners by exposing what Brown wrote in his first book on revival in the early ninetees.
“Times of great evil lie ahead. God’s army must be equipped and trained.
Then it can come forth.
A new breed of leaders must arise.”

It’s not a one off either:
“We need heroes for a new generation. Who will leave all and set the pace? […] God is calling for men and women who will only do what they see their Father doing. He is calling for those who will set the Lord always before them, who will be caught up in the purpose of heaven and live out the message they preach. […] He is fashioning a new kind of vessel – a vessel prepared for the glory of God!”
Source: Dr Michael Brown, What Happened to the Power of God?, Destiny Image, Revival Press, Published 1991, pg. 185.
It makes us wonder if Michael Brown was keen to start up a school while he was involved at the Brownsville “Revival” to unlock the New Breed to usher in the NAR end-times revival.
Although this is a long sermon review, it is well worth listening to and passing on to friends who endorse Apostle Michael Brown.
