It’s become common knowledge that Dr. Michael Brown refuses to acknowledge the existence of the New Apostolic Reformation – so of course denies being one of its leading ‘Apostles’. If that’s the case, what was he recently ‘imparting’ to Katherine Ruonala, an acknowledged ‘Apostle and Prophet’ in the NAR? Let’s not forget, Katherine Ruonala is also given ‘Apostolic’ recognition by Dr Michael Brown’s very good friend, leading NAR Apostle Che Ahn, – with Che Ahn also stating that Ruonala’s church is an ‘Apostolic Center’ and part of the New Apostolic Reformation.
This is the same Katherine Ruonala who, as an ‘Apostle’, brought many other well-known false prophets/teachers like Steve Shultz, Cindy Jacobs and their apostolic/prophetic networks, to shame. Because of her inability to discern that one of her own leaders, Amanda Wells, was a false prophet, false teacher and plagiarist, Wells’ false prophecies were given high-profile coverage on ‘The Elijah List’.
With this in mind, consider how Che Ahn defines modern-day apostles or ‘NARpostles’ (emphasis added):
When I use the term modern-day apostle, I am not comparing today’s apostles with the apostles of yesteryear. I am highlighting the fact that apostles are not relegated to yesteryear. They not only exist today, they play a critical role in bringing about revival and reformation.

What makes Dr. Brown’s denial about being a recognised Apostle in the NAR even more interesting is how his very close friends, ‘apostles’ themselves, continually claim him as one of their top ‘apostolic leaders’.
On a recent visit to Australia Dr. Brown met with Katherine Ruonala – where she stated the following about Dr. Brown in the video she uploaded (emphasis added):
I asked Dr Michael Brown to release an impartation for revival. Then the Holy Spirit crashed in and overwhelmed me! It was so unexpected! I feel to release this tonight and have an impartation service in Brisbane. I hope you can join us to tonight at Glory City at 7pm. I have a big excitement in my spirit for what the Lord wants to do!

Dare we ask this question?
If Katherine Ruonala, as a recognised NAR Apostle, asked for and received ‘it’ – an ‘impartation for revival’ from Dr. Brown, then using the NAR Apostolic ‘impartation’ standard of Che Ahn (and Katherine Ruonala), what does that make Dr. Michael Brown?
Keep in mind, Katherine is fulfilling Che Ahn’s definition of an NAR Apostle by immediately announcing to her congregation that she is bringing ‘revival and reformation’, at her ‘apostolic centre’.
Yes, Dr. Brown is laying hands on yet another bonafide fraud, believing he can impart the ‘spirit’ of revival to an unqualified, ungodly woman.
A few more important questions:
If Dr. Michael Brown is filled with the true Holy Spirit, why isn’t he recognising her as the false teacher she is? Why isn’t he rebuking this false ‘apostle’? Why isn’t he holding to the biblical standard in regards to the role of women in the church? Or is he in reality fulfilling the NAR ‘standard’ required as part of his role as a senior New Apostolic Reformation Apostle?
“But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.” 2 Peter 2:1-3
