OVERVIEW OF INTERVIEW
Recently on Issues, Etc., host Todd Wilken invited Ps. Chris Rosebrough from Fighting For the Faith to discuss the heretical New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) teaching on Jesus and their false understanding of the Kingdom.
Ps. Rosebrough played three sound bytes that exposed Bill Johnson’s lack of qualification to be a pastor – by what he confessed from the pulpit. Ps. Rosebrough also pointed out that if the early church condemned heretics for believing in a false Jesus, why should the church today put up with Bill Johnson.
Ps. Rosebrough alluded to 2 Corinthians 11:3-4 to stress that one can’t even claim to be a believer if he believes a false Jesus:
“But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough.”
Not only did Bill Johnson proclaim his false Jesus to all the Hillsong leaders (who you can hear affirming that Johnson’s Jesus was also their own), he was caught preaching the NAR Dominion Mandate.
C. Peter Wagner who was the leader of the New Apostolic Reformation cult put succinctly this way:
“This is our Dominion Mandate, seeing the kingdom of God actually being manifested here on earth as it is in heaven.”

Rosebrough took Johnson to task exposing how even the foundational teachings of NAR basileology is not even remotely Christian.

We encourage our readers to listen to the sermon in context with an open bible and compare what Bill Johnson says to scriptures. As is clearly explained by Ps. Rosebrough, Bill Johnson’s Jesus and his understanding of the Kingdom of God leaves him outside the Christian faith and exposes him as an enemy of God.
In closing, we will provide a brief transcript of what Johnson said about his Jesus.
“… I’m rocked by the fact that all the miracles that [Jesus] did, He actually did as a human being, that was submitted to the Father. That’s important to recognize. Jesus made the statement several times in the gospel of John, He said, ‘The Son of Man can do nothing of Himself.’ He would say, ‘I can only do what I see my Father do, I only say what I hear my Father say.’
Now if Jesus did all the miracles He did as God, we’re still impressed, but we’re reduced to spectators. We watch the healing of the blind, the resurrection of the dead, the walking on water… but we stand back and we applaud, we’re supporters, cheerleaders of the miraculous that God alone can do.
But when I discovered that He did the miracles as a man yielded to God, then suddenly I’m no longer content to stay where I’m at. I realized that He actually set an example that must be followed. I cannot hear it, I cannot see it and then do nothing…. We have been assigned to invade the miraculous. That’s who you are. The Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead, dwells in us, and He wants out. He’s in us as a river and not a lake…. He’s actually there to flow through us to alter the geography around us…. And to do that we have to be involved in seeing what the Fathers doing and hearing what the Father is saying.
So Jesus gave us an example that can and must be followed. He declared over us, ‘greater works than thee shall you do.’ […] He was prophesying His intention, that there would be a generation that was yet to come, that would actually surpass His demonstration of power. […] Once my identity is established, it must become manifest who He has made me to be. He has put the Spirit that has raised Jesus from the dead inside of me, and all of Heaven now waits to see what impossibility I will invade in His name. […] I’ve been given that which knows no impossibility.”
