There is not a more destructive force sweeping through the church today than the New Apostolic Reformation and sadly so many churches are still being exposed to this deadly movement as ‘it’s a new ‘Reformation’ that many don’t realize they’ve joined’. (Link)
But despite the danger and potential occultic consequences of aligning with this demonic movement, over the last few years there have been many testimonies of God’s faithfulness in leading His precious sheep out of the New Apostolic Reformation and into the ministries of faithful shepherds.
From ‘impartation to psychiatric nightmare’ – a mother’s story:
A recent series of blog posts has come to light, where a mother of 9 children (and foster mother of 4) shares her experience of dealing with the demonic results of innocently exposing her family to great deception.
“How did we get from a bible study, to impartations, and now a son in psychiatric care? How can something as simple as an impartation lead to this? What had I gotten myself into? Even more, how was I so easily deceived?”
My Uneasy Experience at House Fire Ministries- Part 1
Late last year a friend invited us to her bible study at her house. I didn’t have work so I figured I’d give it a chance. I brought my son Chaz along with me because he loves bible studies. It was a 45 minute drive from our house. When we got there they were very welcoming and it was a nice environment. Mostly my friend would do the study or her and her husband would take turns. We spent a long time in worship which was nice. It did drag out for a bit and it tended to be the same songs often. It was still pretty relaxing.
Usually Sumi was the one to do the bible studies and every now and then her husband would do one. I thought they were insightful and I was often tired when I went and didn’t really test what they were saying to scripture. in fact, I had spent most my life just trusting what people told me and wouldn’t read things in context. I did notice that they put a lot of emphasis on hearing from God and what God told them to say. It automatically made me tune into Sumi more because, how cool is that? Hearing God’s direct voice or having a “word or phrase dropped in”, as she would often say.
After the long praise and worship, short bible study, the majority of the time was spent on prayer afterward and giving everyone a word from God. If you were new you were sure to get one. Often, they would call one of us to the middle and wait for God to speak to them directly about us. Almost like a Psychic would, in a sense. I don’t at all want to say any of it was false. In fact, some things were right on the money. That’s what immediately drew me in to future meetings. It wasn’t the songs and not the teaching. I only half paid attention. It was the personal experience at the end, which oftentimes drug out very, very, very long.
I very quickly brought the rest of my family and they liked it. In fact, I think it really bolstered our faith and how much God listens to us. Sumi and Tony were very welcoming and I truly began to build a friendship with them. I loved how they really believed in our teens. As the months went on we started inviting our friends and they came. We didn’t really see much out of the ordinary. I really loved the bible study atmosphere as we already had a church we loved for the last 6 years.
A few months goes by and Sumi tells us her and her husband are praying for a bigger building. I thought, well, awesome. A bigger building for a bible study. Sounds great. One day that day came. It wasn’t anything secured for the future but one of those things where they can borrow a building once a week on Friday nights. I thought it was cool and looked forward to help grow this bible study.
This is where things changed fast.
