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.
