James 3:17

"But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy."

Morris Cerullo, deemed a heretic by Mr. Prasch, spoke with many Christian “prophets” for “GOD'S NEWS BEHIND THE NEWS INTERNATIONAL PROPHECY CONFERENCE 2000” held in Orlando, Florida, APRIL 5-8, 2000.  The ‘discernment’ ministry prophets" who attended were: 44    http://www.godsnews.com/main.htm

Philippians 1:15-17: 

"Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will: The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds: But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel."

Moishe Rosen occasionally works with Zola Levitt since his retirement as CEO of Jews For Jesus. Zola Levitt is promoted by MJAA. 

BDM writes: "...About the time Zola was becoming more charismatic in his theology, he divorced his wife, left his Messianic Jewish congregation, and joined W.A. Criswell's neo-evangelical, psychologized First Baptist Church of Dallas (Southern Baptist Convention). It is difficult to tell whether Zola has increased his charismatic tendencies, or whether Zola's increased charismatic associations are merely a part of his general fondness for ecumenism...Zola took part in an ecumenical charismatic renewal conference, "Indianapolis 1990: North American Congress on the Holy Spirit & World Evangelization," held 8/15/90-8/19/90 in Indianapolis, Indiana. (Zola was advertised to speak at the Messianic Jewish Conference, featuring "special Messianic worship and dance."..."45 

1 Timothy 3:2 "A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour..."

"...The Van Impe organization has decided to further curtail
their web initiatives and as of this past Monday evening my employment with them has been terminated - immediately.  I placed my resume on the Internet at
http://www.prophezine.com/text/BOBLALLYresume.html for those of you who are in need of a Director level/Upper Management staff member."

A query to Mr. Lally regarding the relationship of Lally, Prophezine and Van Impe, brought this reply:

I own PropheZine.  PropheZine is 5 years old and I have been involved for 4 1/2 years.
 
Van Impe hired me more than 1 year ago.  he is 68 and has stated that he does not understand the Internet.  So, they cancelled many Internet projects and let me go.  4 weeks before Christmas.  Nice, huh?  Some Christian organization that lets an employee go this time of year.  No severance pay to speak of.

END UPDATE

Bob Lally, Owner/Webmaster of PropehZine was raised a Reform Jew and is now AOG. His bio page includes a rotating 3D hexagram. 46  Ray Gano is Founder of PropheZine, which hosted a three-day international Prophecy Conference in Alta Loma, CA, on Sept 19- 21, 2000. 

Speakers were:  Tim LaHaye (CNP), Gary Kah, Berit Kjos, David Hocking-  teaches weekly at Calvary Chapel of Santa Ana and in their Bible College at Murrieta Hot Springs;  Steven Wright, Ron Graff,  John Kinsella- author of The Eternal Generation and has contributed many articles and television scripts for both Hal Lindsey's "World Intelligence Briefing" and Peter Lalonde's "This Week In Bible Prophecy" and experience in the military and as a police detective;  Scott Pearson is well known in the prophecy conference that is held every year in Tampa Florida hosted by Ray Brubaker of "God's News Behind The News" TV show. 

Bill Cloud is a Gentile who studied under a rabbi and learned, through the study of Gematria, the Kabbalist interpretation of the Bible. His bio states: 

  "...he has spent many hours studying, not only the Hebrew text, but the Jewish roots of Christianity as well. This research has been rewarded with a keen insight into Biblical Judaism and its relationship to Christianity. Also, the Lord has given Bill the somewhat unique ability to understand the mysterious aspects of the Hebrew language such as the meaning of the letters, Gematria and the Torah Code phenomena. He first heard of Torah Codes back in 1989 and for the past several years has dedicated hundreds of hours researching this phenomena."

"This interest is tied into Bill's desire to unlock the deep secrets of the Word of God and to teach them, along with our Jewish roots, to the Church. Furthermore, this insight has allowed Bill to understand prophetic scripture...a licenced minister with the Church of God, served as the Youth Pastor in a large church in Central Florida. Since then, he has moved on to work with Perry Stone as a researcher, writer and speaker. Over the past two years, Bill has written articles for the Voice of Evangelism magazine, as well as for God's News Behind The News."
http://www.prophezine.com/alliance/billcloud/

Voice of Evangelism >http://www.voe.org/home.cfm >  is Perry Stone's ministry. We are reminded that Jews who do not know the Lord Jesus Christ are bound by the law. We cannot access their interpretation of the New Testament, and even the Old Testament is suspect to false interpretation by those who do not have Jesus Christ. 

Galatians 3:10-12 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.

As has been proven, Gematria is a kabbalist teaching that Christians have no business dabbling in. It is the occult.

As an aside, Bill Cloud of Shoreshim [Roots] Ministries, who was recently seen on the Christian station, Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) with host and longtime associate Perry Stone of "Manna-fest". Bill Cloud is a regular speaker at both Prophecy Conferences and Hebraic Roots conferences, and was on a "Texas Tour with Brad Scott" in July 2004. Both are featured speakers at events sponsored by Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries, who also promotes and sells Brad Scott's tapes and teachings. Monte Judah has been billed at another groups gathering as the "Moses of America". Bill Cloud's teachings very much reflect Brad's Scott's and others in the push to "Hebraic Roots" or 'getting back' to "our" Jewish Roots.Please see the series about Brad Scott in the Ministries and Leaders section: Brad Scott - Part 1: Introduction & Mountain West   Mountain West Hebrew University Courses  Brad Scott - Part 2: Pure Language & Sacred Name  Brad Scott - Part 3: Gematria & the Apostle Paul  Brad Scott - Part 4 : Torah Observant Gentile & Under the Law

 

Scott Pearson is a Jack Van Impe protégé and is connected with Perry Stone, who has a TV show. Voice of Evangelism,  Stone's ministry mentioned above in connection to Bill Cloud and his kabbalism, has him denying being a Messianic Jew although he has Jewish heritage and teaches Hebraic roots and is found over and over again on Messianic sites. Scott Pearson's bio shows a picture of himself and Gary Kah "breaking bread together."

  "...In 1981, Scott graduated from Amsterdam High School (Upstate New York), he soon afterward attended a Jack Van Impe Crusade. Previous to that time, Scott knew about God but didn't really know about receiving Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour. Henceforth, the message that Jack Van Impe shared that night so stirred him that he got save a as a result of that crusade. Scott then graduated from Schenectady College with an Associate in Science degree (Performing Arts in Music). He then graduated from Logos Bible college....He has been openly endorsed by the likes of such men as, Dr. Jack Van Impe, Perry Stone, as well as other nationally known evangelists. Scott was also recently (95-97) one of the keynote speakers at Dr. Ray Brubaker's highly acclaimed Annual International Prophecy Conference." 47 

"God has given Scott a wonderful grasp of His Word, and there is every evidence of the study of the Word of God on his part". Dr. David Breese [CNP] , Television Host The King Is Coming.   "Scott's a great preacher.... You're going to enjoy him". Dr. Jack Van Impe" 48

JR Church promotes Astrology and the Zodiac as the Gospel, an example of which is found in his PropheZine article, Where Will The Planets Be In The Year 2000?.48a 

 

Ray Gano and PropheZine 48b promote the writings of William Dankenbring who reportedly has not only believed he was Elijah and that the Cabala is good, but teaches British Israelism 48c in the article, "The Oklahoma City Bombing, Militias, And -- The New World Order In Bible Prophecy!" He teaches that America is modern Israel; the Americans are the tribe of Ephraim and Great Britain his brother. Mr. Dankinbring is a Church of God Minister and has Triumph Prophetic Ministries.

 

Ron Graff's Prophecy Central 48d connected to PropheZine 48e also promotes their upcoming conference and Lambert Dolphin, Jack Van Impe and Pat Robertson's (CNP) 700 Club and many more proven to be ecumenical or false. Ron Gaff is a graduate of Biola University and Talbot Theological Seminary. He has served Grace Brethren churches in Los Angeles and Mission Viejo, Calvary Chapel of Saddleback Valley, and Christian Assembly in Laguna Hills. Currently he is pastor of the Alta Loma Brethren In Christ Church in Southern California. He worked with Prison Fellowship, and is active in the current prayer movement including the work of The National Day of Prayer.49

 

Ron Graff  promotes the ecumenical Lighthouses of Prayer: 49a, "This is the unifying strategy of churches and major evangelistic organizations as we prepare for the new millennium. PROPHECY CENTRAL is a national organization supporting the Lighthouses Movement. If you wish to register your light house and/or be connected to us, go to Lighthouse Movement - Register online. Our group number is 80335!" 50  In his article "Apostacy And Revival"50a , he equates Apostasy with the United Religion Initiative and Revival. Mr. Graff's answer to apostasy is leading believers into the Lighthouse Movement and Lausanne. Graff has been working alongside Lambert Dolphin since 1997 and they co-wrote "Thy Kingdom Come...Thy Will Be Done."  "...Their evangelical beliefs seemed also to be in close harmony in all the important areas of sound Biblical interpretation so they joined forces to write this book. " 51  

Jacob Prasch stated In his February 2000 Newsletter:

“ I personally appreciate the ministries of both Chuck Missler  and Barry Smith…. When a gifted minister of The Word deviates away from the Word into a focus of his own design, he winds up reducing himself to the level of a crackpot.  Here lies the unfortunate result, because both Barry and Chuck are far from crackpots. “ and

“There are those such as Christian TV journalist David Dolan or University journalism lecturer Bill Alnor whom God has called to review current events with a biblical eye.  But God has rather called Chuck Missler to biblical exposition and Barry Smith to evangelism. For me it has been a personal tragedy to see, among others, two such outstanding brothers make public fools of themselves, discredit their ministry…” 52  

Bill and Jackie Alnor, promoted by Jacob Prasch, Tricia Tillin and Dave Hunt  have recently moved from Philadelphia,  "...the main reason was our beginning a Bible study associated with the Calvary Chapel movement that quickly spun into a church." Bill is now "pastor of Calvary Chapel of the Lehigh Valley." Their ministry spans the Christian Sentinel magazine, Alien Gazette and Cultlink which are publishing ministries of: Eastern Christian Outreach, Inc. They hope to fully incorporate with Calvary Chapel. [See also: Alnor Review]

Lambert Dolphin endorses Bill Alnor and also Hank Hanagraff, whom we mentioned in Lying Signs and Wonders and also the Millstat Forum

"...These cautions, and many others, have been expressed in two good recent books: Soothsayers Of The Second Advent, by William M. Alnor, and 99 Reasons Why No One Knows When Christ Will Return, by B.J. Oropeza. Both of these men are associated with the Christian Research Institute in Irvine, California, founded by the late Dr. Walter R. Martin. Hank Hanegraaff, president of that organization, who is now known as "The Bible Answer Man," around the world, is an voice for caution..." 53

Chuck Missler [CNP] is also closely tied to Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa (CC), calls Chuck Smith his pastor, and has taught for many years at Costa Mesa and other CCs.  CC Jerusalem also hotlinks to Missler's web site. Chuck Missler joined the CNP in 1998, promotes Bible Codes, better known as Gematria, along with Grant Jeffrey and Hal Lindsey.  

The July, 1998 issue of Chuck Missler's Newsletter, "Prophecy Update" has as it's first article, "They Only Know What You Teach 'Em," co-authored by James Dobson (CNP);  and Gary Bauer (CNP); (copyrighted, 1998).  It begins with reciting the tragedies of children killing children in American schools, continues by blasting the executive, judicial and legislative branches of government for allowing/causing the national moral decline and says, "…it's time we all pulled together -- Americans of every political party and religious faith – to recover a sense of what God wants us to do for our nation." 

The piece ends with these three paragraphs:

“…On May 7, America observed what the Congress of the United States has designated as the National Day of Prayer.  That emphasis should occur not just once each spring but throughout the year, as we ask the Father to heal our land.  We must also pledge ourselves anew to the principles that have made this nation great: hard work, sexual restraint, a commitment to family, a rejection of violence, and reliance upon the hand of Divine Providence. By this effort we can begin to atone for the blood of the innocents [emphasis mine] that stains our streets and neighborhoods.  We can start to restore the qualities that prompted Abraham Lincoln to call us an "almost chosen people." We can approach again the throne of our Father, seek His face, humble ourselves and pray, and know that He will hear from Heaven and heal our land. If you agree, write and let us know.  Let's make America a "shining city upon a hill" once more.  If we fail, we need not ask for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for our beloved nation.”

The phrase “almost chosen people” brings to mind the entire British Israel doctrine and the “New Jerusalem” of the Puritans, early political leaders in America:

"Increase Mather in 1676, speculated about America's prophetic destiny as a forerunner or "type" of the New Jerusalem. Boston political leader Samuel Sewell, writing in 1697, shared Mathers convictions that America might be the 'seat of the Divine Metropolis,' in the Millenium." 54  

We are reminded:

"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father, but is of the world." 1 John 2:16

"If ye be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God, Set your affections on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead , and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory." Colossians 3:1-4

Chuck Missler (CNP) is a contributing writer for CITIZENS' INTELLIGENCE DIGEST, which is an official publication of CITIZENS FOR HONEST GOVERNMENT whose President is Pat Matrisciana (CNP). Other contributing writers include: John Brown; Cong. Bill Dannemeyer (CNP); Joseph Farah (CNP); Ambrose Evans-Pritchard; Dr. Tim LaHaye (CNP); Judge Jim Johnson; Lt. Col. Tom McKenney;  Dr. Stanley Monteith (CNP); Larry Pratt (CNP); Col. Ronald Ray; Christopher Ruddy; Carolyn Steinke; Mason Weaver.

1 Timothy 6:9-11

"But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness."
