In Matthew 7:15 Jesus commanded us to be watching for false prophets that would come in and act as “ravenous wolves” and harm the church. This is why I am thankful for Holly Pivec and R. Douglas Geivett’s book, “God’s Super-Apostles: Encountering the Worldwide Prophets and Apostles Movement.”
In summary, the book is arguing that there are many dangers of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) that we need to be aware of. You may not have heard of NAR but there is little doubt in my mind that there are people around you who have been impacted by its teaching. Here is a description from page 4 of what NAR is all about:
“In short, NAR is a global movement with an agenda to bring back apostles and prophets to the church-apostles like Peter and Paul and prophets like Moses and Elijah. NAR leaders claim that God always intended for apostles and prophets to govern the church, not only the early church, but the church during each generation. Yet their rightful place has been neglected by Christians for centuries. Instead of apostles and prophets, today’s churches are usually governed by pastors and elders. NAR leaders call their new movement apostolic because they claim to be restoring apostles and prophets to the church. And they call it a reformation because they say it will completely change the way church is done-and its effects will be greater than the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation.”
As you begin learning about NAR and what is going on in this movement the concerns only grow from there. One NAR leader (you can hear this in the interview below) claimed that Jesus took him into heaven, told him that he was going to be raised up as one of 35 end time apostles. Not only that but that these end time apostles would have the power to call down the curses and plagues from the book of Revelation upon the earth. By the way…this should trouble you.
I would encourage you to buy the book. YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY LISTEN TO THIS INTERVIEW that Alisa Childers does with the Author (Holly Pivec). It will blow you away! Trust me!
