THE “NEW APOSTOLIC REFORMATION”
(NAR) IS NOT “NEW!” – IS NOT “APOSTOLIC!” AND MOST CERTAINLY NOT A “REFORMATION!” [quote: Dr. John MacArthur]
by Bob Brunette
- NAR has done nothing new but given into the greatest expression of pride that can be known, spiritual pride! Akin to the temptation that satan used in luring Adam and Eve…into the sin that would impact the whole of humanity for millennia to come… “Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?” ~ Genesis 3:1. NAR has questioned the Authority of God Himself by establish their own self-commending standard of righteousness. A Cross-less righteousness that challenges and subsequently comes into direct conflict with the very Authority of God Himself. Who just so happens to be the Chief Apostle’ Himself, the true head of the Church, “Jesus of Nazareth!” NAR has proceeded in following after the very same entrapment that had ensnared the Scribes and Pharisees during the time of Christ’s earthly Ministry. “Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to His disciples, saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses(Christ)!” ~ Matthew 23:1,2
“The prophets, prophecy falsely and the Priests rule on their own authority and My people love it so, but what will you do at the end of it?” ~ Jeremiah 5:31
NAR has supplanted the very Authority of Christ with the leavened precepts of celebrated American Evangelical leaders.
“The Pharisees and the scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders but eat their bread with impure hands?” And He said to them, “Rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: ‘THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME!
‘BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.’ Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men”(Dominionist/Kingdom Now… 7-Mountains of God-Mandate). He was also saying to them, “You are experts at setting aside the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition!” ~ Mark 7:5-9
NAR HAS CREATED A SPIRITUAL GRAVEYARD FOR THOSE WHO HAVE HAD THEIR GENUINE FAITH IN “CHRIST” VIOLATED AND SHIPWRECKED DUE TO THE LEAVENED TEACHINGS OF CELEBRATED EVANGELICAL NAR LEADERS
2. NAR brings with it a spirit of division, a spiritual graveyard of those followers of Christ who have as a direct result of having been exposed to the false, deceptive and leavened teachings of the greater NAR Dominionist movement, have suffered the spiritual shipwrecking of their genuine faith in Christ. Experiencing, not the unifying power of the Holy Spirit, that the NAR movement insists but rather experiencing the division that comes from promoting any “other gospel” message, the leavened teachings of celebrated Evangelical leaders above and beyond the Words of Christ! Rather holding fast to a self-commending standard of righteousness as portrayed in one of NAR’s core doctrines, “The 7-Mountains of God – Mandate” that attempts to supplant the Authority of Christ by establishing the Kingdom of God by the works of the flesh.
By their manifold sacrificial expressions of good works all in lieu of simple obedience to Christ directly, and faith in His representative Teachings. In effect found to be actually opposing the works of the Spirit of God, in preference for a love of this world and its associated works, which at best can only yield a Gucci knock-off result, while appearing genuine upon initial investigation but when compared to the genuine Gucci, the genuine Gospel of Christ is seen in its true light, that of a counterfeit. A chameleon like, hollow counterfeit NAR image that on the surface projects truth while holding onto the umbilical cord of this present fallen world, the “Love of Money” and the associated attachments of this present world to include a disingenuous and fraudulent love for the “Kingdom of God” in earnest. NAR’s leavened teachings that actually cause the Bride of Christ to stumble and fall in her genuinely Biblically defined faith, and in so doing are actually found robbing the children of God of their bona fide faith in God and His Word.
“You (spiritual) adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God!“ ~ James 4:4
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth!” ~ Matthew 6:24
“If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content. BUT THOSE WHO WANT TO GET RICH (IN THIS PRESENT FALLEN WORLD) FALL INTO TEMPTATION AND A SNARE AND MANY FOOLISH AND HARMFUL DESIRES WHICH PLUNGE MEN INTO RUIN AND DESTRUCTION! For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by LONGING FOR IT HAVE WANDERED AWAY FROM THE FAITH AND PIERCED THEMSELVES WITH MANY GRIEFS!” ~ 1st Timothy 6:8-10
