PARENTS KEEP YOUR CHILDREN OUT OF IHOP

IHOPERS, Wasn’t The Cross Enough?

Just once I would love someone from IHOP to explain to
me

why there must be people praying throughout the globe in order for Jesus to return.Matthews 24:36 “No one knows when that day or hour will come —not the angels in heaven, nor the … day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

So how is it that IHOP has determined “a way” for Jesus to return? i.e. (everyone praying at the same time for Christ’s return)

And what would the Bereans say to this? I say this since it is not anywhere in scripture that this command is given.

Are there no Bereans at IHOP?

The Proof on Contemplative Prayer: by Mike Bickle

Mike Bickle of IHOP-KC instructs followers on contemplative prayer October 28th, 2011 | Author: Lighthouse Trails Editors

By John Lanagan

My Word Like Fire Ministries

In Fellowshipping with the Holy Spirit: 5 Practical Phrases, International House of Prayer leader Mike Bickle gives instructions on how to experience contemplative prayer–which he calls “communing prayer.” Like all Christian contemplatives, Bickle works hard at presenting this as biblically acceptable. He states there is “…a lot of counterfeit mysticism…” Before teaching his Christianese mantra method, he again emphasizes he is not talking about Eastern or Oprah religion.

According to Bickle, “I use sentences, better yet phrases. Eventually on these five phrases I’m gonna give you in a minute, I reduce those to one word…” (42:13 of video, give or take)

There is much throughout this entire video to cause concern. (click_HERE_for_video)

I am sorry to say contemplative prayer seems foundational to IHOP, which means much deception has occurred, and will continue to occur. As covered elsewhere, Mike Bickle wants Fire Within, a book promoting the teachings of Catholic contemplatives Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross, to be the “manual for IHOP-KC.” (click_HERE_for_article)

Mike Bickle “claims that God is restoring contemplative prayer to the church. He goes on to claim that contemplative prayer is a God-ordained means of entering into the fullness of God, and that the brightest lights in church history have been Roman Catholic mystics who lived during the dark ages.

IHOP: Why Didn’t You Post My Comment?!

Just for the record: there have been a lot of comments that I have not posted due to their hateful nature.
Also for the record: I do not hate Mike Bickel.  I do not hate the teachers that work under him. I do hate the New Age agenda however, and I do take a stand against that.

  • For those of you who keep writing in and telling me how hateful I am, your comments are still going to go in the trash bin. So when you do write me, don’t waste your time by telling me how hateful I am etc. because if you do that, your mail will just go right in the trash bin.

(And as they always say) Blessings!

Why I Left IHOPKC and How I was Treated When I Left // MY STORY

Story deleted on purpose. Please read other stories on this post. Thank you!

IHOP & Bethany Deaton…

Nice going, IHOP. Looks like CBS managed to stay away from reporting on you, the root cause of Bethany Deaton’s death.

Anybody watching this, who agrees with me, send an email to CBS and tell them to investigate IHOP.

It is physically impossible to slowly suffocate oneself. Your mind will not allow it to happen. It’s physically impossible for a swimmer to drown because their mind won’t allow them to do it. Bethany Deaton could not possibly suffocate herself. That is physically impossible. …yet she died with her eyes open and the bag inhaled into her mouth….

Write CBS and have them do an investigation into the control that IHOP has over it’s “interns”.

Families getting cut off?!!? That is oh so typical of IHOP. I have been through it and know from firsthand experience.

Baby, if you’re nodding your head and saying, “Yeah! It’s great!”, then you are drunk in the wrong spirit.

In 2010 there was an “outpouring of the Holy Spirit” on the IHOP [International House of Prayer] webstream and boy, did that turn sour fast. Aside from the singing on the first night, everything was just messed up. AHH! It’s breaking my heart! How many people do we know and love in Kansas City?!
People would laugh uncontrollably, jerk as though sick, stumble and speak as though drunk, and “sing in tongues” in complete chaos and without interpretation.
Someone tell me – where is “drunk in the Spirit” in the bible? After all.. Isn’t God for self-control?
IHOP does agree with that, but still to this day (2014) they continue to act like drunken fools! See Titus 1:8 and 2:2; 1 Thessalonians 5:6-7 which compared in the NKJV and NIV relates self-control with being sober, pointing to the fact that the Holy Spirit is not one who takes delight in being drunk at all, but in being sober-minded – fruit of the Spirit, what? Drunkenness is the complete opposite of being filled with the Holy Spirit! For sober-mindedness is a filling of Him!; 1 Peter 1:13, 4:7, and 5:8 … (Derek Prince)

Christianity, in places like IHOP, has become a feel-good type of ‘retreat’. Like oh wow!, You can really feel God move there! But you see, THAT is the problem. The focus becomes “you”. What do “you” get out of it?

WHERE is the repentance? Where is the conviction? And now the final question: WHY have there been so many deaths related to IHOP?

IHOPers will explain away every terrible thing that has ever happened , or that has even remotely been related to IHOP, (Bethany Deaton), but doesn’t anyone care that their IHOP ‘ministry’ has been connected to these events? WHERE is the discernment? Why so much denial from the top?

IHOP swept Bob Jones, who had female IHOP interns stand butt-naked before God…. (and himself) …while in his IHOP office….. under the proverbial rug. OK. So Bob got booted out…. (That would’ve been bad publicity if it had gone on.). But that was a LONG time ago! 80% of the interns that are there now have absolutely no idea that Bob was ever there. It might even be 90% now… So IHOP life goes on. No one talks about it, no one I’m just about in tears over all of this…
May and I watched the very first nights of the recent “outpouring of the Holy Spirit” on the IHOP [International House of Prayer] webstream and boy, did that turn sour fast. Aside from the singing on the first night, everything was just messed up. AHH! It’s breaking my heart! How many people do we know and love in Kansas City?!
I’ve watched my beloved siblings laugh uncontrollably, jerk as though sick, stumble and speak as though drunk, and “sing in tongues” in complete chaos and without interpretation. I’ve raised the issue among friends of being “drunk in the Spirit” and even though I prove over and over that God is for self-control, which they agree with, they continue to act like drunken fools! See Titus 1:8 and 2:2; 1 Thessalonians 5:6-7 which compared in the NKJV and NIV relates self-control with being sober, pointing to the fact that the Holy Spirit is not one who takes delight in being drunk at all, but in being sober-minded – fruit of the Spirit, what? Drunkenness is the complete opposite of being filled with the Holy Spirit! For sober-mindedness is a filling of Him!; 1 Peter 1:13, 4:7, and 5:8 …hears about it, and no one ever knows that something very bad occurred there. That leftover percentage of people who DO know about it have kept it very well covered up.

Then comes Paul Cain. Paul ‘ministered’ at IHOP when Bob was there — only Paul liked to ‘minister’ to male interns (also sexually). So Paul got booted out also. And again, IHOP life goes on! The people who were there when it all happened, they don’t say one word about it.

Yes. I hear some of you saying we’re not supposed to throw stones, or we’re not supposed to touch God’s anointed…

Has anyone ever heard of a false spirit? How about a false anointing? MIKE BICKLE – where is the weeping with repentance??

People, why is it that IHOP, Bethel, Joel Osteen, and SO many other big name speakers/teachers/retreats are so popular?! It’s because there is NO repentance preached – (except on tithing). Oh! And that’s because God wants only the BEST for you! (Uch, ugh! I’m gagging..)

How many families have been torn in two – thanks to the false teachers and the ones who’ll believe anything that makes them feel good?

The bigger the church, the better it must be. Right?! Someone tell me then, why does God’s word say that “narrow” is the path that leads to Him despite it being a very wide path!?

Christians have begun going for the “feel good”, wherever they go. I would imagine that God is weeping. He did warn us in his Word though, didn’t He? So how’s your “one-on-One” time with God these days? Having any “conviction”? If you’re connected with anything even remotely like these ‘ministries’ I’m discussing, I recommend you shop around somewhere else…

Putting it plainly, if you are a part of IHOP, you have been very, very deceived. ANY ministry that in anyway promotes mystical experience, ANY ministry that does that, is teaching false teachings. And if you’re buying into it, then you are being deceived.

Store up your riches? Shoot-yeah!
But not down here! Wake up you sleeper! Open your eyes! Quit swallowing everything you hear and match it up against God’s Word.

Attacked Like Never Before

I don’t know if this is happening to anyone else, but I have been under the most severe spiritual attack I have ever been in during in my 30+ years of Christian living.

Part of me says, “I cannot go on any longer”. Then the other part of me says, “Oh yes. I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” Needless to say, I am sticking with the portion of me that rests upon Christ.

Before I became a believer, not only was I a drug addict but I also had the ‘mouth of a sailor’. Nes pas? In moments of anger recently, I have heard words come out of my mouth that have not escaped from it for the past 30+ years! This is in spite of knowing how much it displeases my Heavenly Father!
In spite of all this, however, I do not question my salvation! Instead, I see this as a very intense attack by Satan.

The unfortunate part about this is that it seems as though it never stops. Not for the past ten months. It just keeps going and going. The attack is not only at work, but also at home and even in my sleep at night. I go to bed exhausted and I wake up feeling even more exhausted. It literally feels endless.

I don’t actually know why I’m bothering to post this, as I have not spoken to anyone about it – so you are the ones that I’m sharing this with – why? I don’t know.

I know that when the enemy comes in like a flood God will raise up a standard against him. So I am now waiting for that standard to be raised up on my behalf.

ALL of this began very shortly after beginning a new ministry in my area. I won’t go into details, but let’s just say the ministry is for those people who are literally unable to go to church. I’ll leave it at that.

Your prayers and/or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Let me add a P.S.
My stand against the enemy will never change. Additionally, unless the Lord tells me to, my comments and my posts about IHOP will NOT stop. I will always take a stand against New Age teaching. This is because New Age teaching, which is also at IHOP, is firmly against the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ. So that’s it for now.

Chee

One day this week: It’s 11 a.m. today (I’m at work) with Lincoln Brewster on the small Bose-type stereo they allow me to play in my office. He is belting out, “All the Earth Will Sing Your Praises”.

So I was doing a type of testing with an employee who’d just arrived. I noticed she was in sandals and street clothes and had some type of charm around her neck. I asked her if she was on her day off. She was very sweet, from India, and replied that, “yes” she was on an off day. I couldn’t believe someone would come into the heart of the city on their day off for testing like that. She went on to say that she had listened to relaxing music when she was driving into the city so that made coming in through the traffic easy….and that she had also “done very deep meditation” before leaving the house…

Per company policy: I am not to discuss “anything spiritual” at work. If someone disregards that rule, they lose their job. Well The Holy Spirit really, really, really stirred within me and I heard myself saying, “Well you know what. ‘Chee’? I listen to my Bible when I drive into work. (This was followed by an official ‘pregnant pause’… I heard myself saying next, “Then, if there’s time, I turn on Pandora and listen to Christian music — much like the song that you hear playing right now.” (By this time “Third Day” was singing ‘God of Wonders’). Now I hear myself saying, “After spending that time, I walk through my day with a peace that passes understanding.” (I purposefully left out praying…. because… The Holy Spirit just zip-locked my mouth right at that moment. Why? I don’t know.

She then gave me a smile acknowledging what I’d said..and said, ‘goodbye and thank you’ as she left.

Friends, she is not a Christian and as she was leaving, walking down the hall, I immediately asked God to “Please send other believers in Christ to witness to ‘Chee'” That isn’t her real name, but I would ask all those who are lead by the Holy Spirit to please pray the same prayer for “Chee”.

A lot of churches get caught up in NUMBERS. E.g.. This many came to know the Lord this month.. or X number of people were baptized this quarter/year and etc.

God calls us to be SEED SOWERS. HE is the one who is over The Harvest. So today, seed was sown with Chee. TODAY, I am really asking for prayer for this person. “Chee” could be a VERY STRONG WITNESS for Christ among her friends and family. Please keep her in prayer.

In lieu of the fact that she is in touch with demonic entities via her “meditative” practices, I ask that you’d be in agreement with me that God would crush that stronghold and allow her eyes to be opened to His Truth. She was listening to very powerful Christian music for 10 straight minutes. She was able to witness the “peace” that was within me.

It doesn’t matter if she’s practicing meditation from the Buddhist faith or Contemplative prayer. They are literally the absolute same thing. A Christian who practices Contemplative may say, “no, no, no! I meditate upon Jesus.” Author after author has said, “for successful Contemplative prayer to work, your mind really has to enter an area of ‘nothingness'”. “Your mind cannot be focused on any one thing for it to work.” I’ve had multiple contemplatives tell me that right to my face. You don’t end up meditating on Him – you just end up emptying your mind of every outside influence — and allowing whatever entity is awaiting that open door, to enter in.

Pray for Chee. One day, we will see The Harvest. I hope to see Chee amongst those harvested.
