Warnings Against Antichrists (False, or Counterfeit ‘Anointed’ Ones)
“I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray. As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie [counterfeit], and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.” (1 John 2:26-27)
“For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. 14And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” (2 Cor. 11:13-15)
The False Anointing vs. The True Biblical Anointing
The TRUE ANOINTING is God the Holy Spirit, Third Person of the Triune Godhead. See John 14:16; 1 John 2:20 and many other references.
The FALSE ANOINTING is a Satanic counterfeit of the Holy Spirit. This counterfeit can be very clearly seen in the cultic and occult manifestations of pagan religions. Sadly, undiscerning Christian leaders and known false teachers are applying biblical terminology to this so-called 'anointing' and they say it is a work of Holy Spirit. In doing so, they designate the Person of the Holy Spirit as an impersonal force that can be manipulated at the will of man. Furthermore, the manifestations that occur are not holy, but are the EXACT SAME MANIFESTATIONS found in Hinduism and many pagan cults around the world.
Experience Festival, Exotic India, and a host of other occult websites define very clearly what this counterfeit anointing is and they call it 'Enlightenment. We do not recommend surfing these sites because of the vast amount of occult literature. Caveat emptor! - Let the buyer beware!
“An appalling and horrible thing has happened in the land: The prophets prophesy 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 5:30-31)
Defining Terms - What is Biblical Anointing?
The main Biblical idea of anointing has to do with being ‘set apart’ for holy purposes. The satanic counterfeit is a ‘setting apart’ for satanic deception that produces confusion and delusion. Read these links for a proper and full understanding of Biblical anointing before looking at the counterfeit.
Jesus warned about those claiming to be Christ [Anointed], etc.
“And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you: For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ [Anointed]; and shall deceive many. ” (Mark 13:5-6)
And the Apostle John warned,
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)
Sadly, countless thousands of pastors across the globe have embraced a counterfeit anointing that is not from God. Unbiblical doctrine, ungodly and demonic manifestations, and godless willful rebellion against accountability are the fruit of it.
Warning! Warning! Warning! The occultization of Christendom is a full-blown phenomenon now as Christian clairvoyants, Christian diviners, false prophets, false teachers and false apostles prostitute the undiscerning with spiritual harlotry.
VIDEO & AUDIO
Benny Hinn’s Word Faith Cult False Anointing
Spirit of Truth or Spirit of Error-Video
“I am a little messiah," “I am a little god,” “I Am!" Are these the statements of a true believer? “Jesus Christ will appear bodily in upcoming crusades." Is this how Jesus said He would appear? This video explores the world of Benny Hinn to a depth that few others have done. Are Benny Hinn's miracle and healing claims accurate? Is his teaching biblical? Is his transferable “anointing” from God? Do his teachings and prophesies prove that he is the type of teacher Christ told us to avoid?
This video features an informal, impromptu discussion of the teachings and practices of Benny Hinn and others by three apologists who have been studying Hinn for years. Jacob Prasch of Moriel Ministries, Mike Oppenheimer of Let Us Reason Ministries and Sandy Simpson of Deception In The Church Apologetics share their concerns about the current level of discernment among Christians with regard to teachers like Benny Hinn. This production contains a wealth of old and new video quotes with biblically based commentary. The facts presented on this video are documented and undeniable. We believe you will find this to be a valuable resource in learning to discern whether these teachers are teaching in the SPIRIT OF TRUTH OR SPIRIT OF ERROR!
