The fruit of the New Order of the Latter Rain (NOLR) cult is on full display in the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) cult of Bethel in their Children’s ministry. The Bethel Store (BS) has recently shone a light on the unbiblical teaching in the Bethel Children’s Ministry (BCM).
The BS product states, “This poster has Bethel Church’s children’s declarations on it.” The second BS poster states, “This is the second declaration to come out of Bethel Church’s Children’s Ministry!” In another BS product, Bethel reveals the following about these declarations:
“Also included is the children’s declaration that Bethel Church declares in Kid’s Church every Sunday.” [Source]
The second blurb goes on to claim that Bethel children’s pastor Seth Dahl wrote them:
“These powerful truths, written by Seth Dahl, Bethel Church’s Children’s Pastor, are great for all ages.” [Source]
What you are about to read are some very dangerous cult-like teachings, brainwashing children in believing they are little gods. Don’t believe us? Read them for yourself. If you do not know why Bethel is brainwashing children into believing these satanic lies, we explain further down just where they got these beliefs from.
The poster and blurb for the poster read:
I am powerful and what I believe
changes the world, so today I declare:
GOD IS IN A GOOD MOOD
He loves me all the time
Nothing can separate me from His love
JESUS’ BLOOD PAID FOR EVERYTHING
I will tell the nations of what He has done
I AM IMPORTANT
How He made me is amazing
I was designed for worship
My mouth establishes praise
to silence the enemy
Everywhere I go becomes
a perfect health zone
Because with God…
NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!

WHAT ARE WE READING?!?
Just like the NOLR, Bethel is promoting the supernatural ‘Joel’s Army’, also known as the ‘man-child company’ (MCC) or more commonly known as the ‘One New Man’. It is taught that this glorified dominion-driven, end-times church is supposedly called to manifest the fullness of Jesus Christ and His power here on earth.
Certain individuals would rise up from this deified church to manifest themselves as gods, which are called ‘Manifest Sons of God’ (MSOG), also known as the ‘New Breed’. Rick Joyner claims that Apostles are to fulfil the “apostolic commission”, bringing the church into maturity to manifest this ‘One New Man’ and ‘New Breed’:
You can read more about this One New man heresy here. If you think we are reading too much into these declarations, we encourage you to look at the BS book ‘My Super Powers’.
Bethel is literally deceiving children into believing they are some kind of divine Übermensch, blurring the lines of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and some inner divine occult power like telepathy (Book two: “Carly pretends to be a mind-reading villain who threatens her subjects with the ability to know what they are about to say or do before it happens”).
In many ways, Bethel is encouraging children to become like Roald Dahl’s fictional character ‘Matilda’ with her telekinetic gift, rather than maturing as Christians following Jesus Christ. If Christian parents are happy to have their children embrace such satanic teaching and engage occultic practices – they are to blame for their children’s future.
Bethel have simplified the core beliefs of their ministry in their products for children, which explains why they often teach as they do.
Eg. “This eight-page booklet contains Bethel Church’s four main core values written for children of all ages. God is in a good mood; Jesus blood paid for everything; I am important; and nothing is impossible. Also included is the children’s declaration that Bethel Church declares in Kid’s Church every Sunday.”
Furthermore we see Bethel operating from the NAR ‘Apostolic Commission‘. In the BS product blurb below, they claim they “are taking a turn off of the beaten path of what is commonly taught to children.” That would mean they are departing from the scriptures and the teachings of Christianity in order to brainwash children into embracing the NAR apostolic paradigm of modern-day 5-fold ministry apostles and prophets. In typical cult-like fashion, they twist verses of Romans 8:29 and Ephesians 4:11 to justify their beliefs in manifesting the ‘New Breed’ and the ‘One New Man’ deities through this New Order of Apostles and Apostles.
“God’s desire for believers is that we are conformed to the image of Christ (Rom 8:29), to live in the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. This is possible through believers being equipped for the work of ministry. This equipping comes by the grace imparted (Eph 4:7) through the 5-fold ministers found in Ephesians 4:11-13. In this curriculum, we are taking a turn off of the beaten path of what is commonly taught to children. Along with teaching children the Bible, we want them to experience the things they are learning. With these lessons, we also hope to transform the people who are ministering to the children. We want to see children’s ministers do more than just repeat the information we’ve listed in these pages, but we hope that what is taught to the children is active in the lives of those teaching.” [Source]
To end, we have archived a range of Bethel products used to condition parents into brainwashing their kids – to be then raised up as little gods that are to, “walk in the supernatural power and royal identity they are destined for,” advancing the “Kingdom of God” and taking the seven mountains.
(Knowing that cults are dishonest in their behaviour when exposed for their unbiblical teachings and practices, we have archived the list of their BS products in case Bethel scrubs them.)
