Here is how Satan operates with the false fire of divine healing. Once you think of it, it is really not that clever but the reason why this particular tactic “works” is because we are so gullible in our fleshly desire to look for signs to prove to us that “God is real” when what we are called to do is “live by faith,” without needing a sign to believe in Him. As Jesus said, “a perverse generation seeks after a sign.” In conjunction with the ultimate ramifications of sin and death upon our un-glorified, natural bodies, Satan DOES use sickness and disease to promote his own agenda. God uses it as well for His own reasons. An important last days component of Satan’s agenda is to fool the elect. So what better way to fool us then with a divine healing hoax? All it takes is for the demon to “withdraw the symptoms of the sickness” from those whom he made sick in the first place!!! Believe me, the sickness itself “is not gone.” Only the symptoms are gone or in medical terms “put into remission” in order to fulfill an even higher agenda which is allowing a demon spirit “to imitate God.”
If you take a closer look at the 19th century, a different perspective on the mega preachers of today who focus on divine healing will come to light. For example,t could be that like Kathryn Kuhlman, some of them are NOT false prophets. The obvious pattern in each and every case is that ONE event served as the catalyst for a total shift in the minister’s direction and purpose. For Kathryn Kuhlman, born to Baptist and Methodist parents–her significant day occurred while preaching a traditional sermon when suddenly her message was interrupted by “spontaneous healings” throughout the congregation.
Perhaps one of the most perverse sermons that I have ever heard preached was called “Divine Release.” The sermon was uttered by Juanita Bynum about 5 years ago. It was absolutely horrendous. Yet, Juanita first came to public attention by the preaching of ONE noteworthy message called “No More Sheets.” Bynum’s message was more of an emotional, personal testimony about her struggles with fornication as a single Christian woman was not an actual sermon. Yet this one televised opportunity provided by TD Jakes changed the complete direction of Juanita’s life just as Jakes’ life was forever changed once TBN’s founder, Paul Crouch watched a homemade video featuring TD Jakes .
So is s Juanita Bynum a false prophet? To be honest, there is only one thing that we have the facts on. Bynum is the fruit that fell from the tree of Pentecostalism that goes back not just from her home church but from the church influences of the 19th century. Pentecostalism is an evil tree that was planted by sincere, yet sincerely wrong people and we ALL have been affected by it. Whether by vision, prophecy, a manifestation of a sign or a wonder, it is possible that sincere and gifted Christian leaders simply “took a wrong turn” a century ago that spread like a wild-fire, defiling all others who followed them.
Sincerity aside, some mega preachers took the wrong turn primarily because their narcissistic personalities were never broken by the cross. So it was natural for them to allow prominence, prosperity and power to develop huge ministerial systems that are built around their own self-love. In other cases, less than sincere prophets gather to fill their own pockets and serve their own perversion for domination, manipulation and control. The bottom line is that it is the Lord’s intent to undeceive sincere believers within the Laodicean church age. Consequently, we all have a great price to pay when we face the light of truth and discover that much of our work and effort has merely opened a door of opportunity to the fake Jesus.
As I have searched for answers and solutions, I am truly dumbfounded by the mercy, grace and longsuffering of our God. It literally amazes me to attempt to comprehend that for centuries, even going back to the rebellious children of Israel in the old testament, the Lord has tolerated mixed and false doctrines of all kinds for centuries on end. Yet, throughout the history of God’s people, He has —on occasion— used those who spread mixed and false doctrines to evangelize and teach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Think of it!!!! Just based upon the fact that the Lord has tolerated false fire for so long should suggest to us that “we are near the end.”
I am humbled by the fact that the enemy was trying to turn me into a false prophet but a way of escape was made for me. I had the entire package–divine healing, a charismatic personality, drive, zeal and ambition. People fell slain when I simply waved my hand at them, much like Benny does , I also had many dreams, some visions and occult healing powers.
Consequently, I don’t point any judgmental fingers at any mega preachers, among whom are deceived ministers who, like me, the enemy tricked into believing that their powers are divine.
The problem is that whether some of these folk are sincere or not, the outcome is the same. The sheep are damaged.
