Leger van Joël

De Riverbeweging noemt zichzelf  “Het leger van Joël”, maar wat is dat leger nu eigenlijk?

Het lijkt er op dat de beweging in Nederland nooit erg actief is geworden. De website bestaat niet meer, en ook de site waar naar doorgelinkt word is op het moment dat ik dit type gesloten, en er zijn meer sites die uit de lucht zijn.

Het leger van Joël kunnen we vinden in het Bijbelboek Joël. In het boek Kundalini Warning wordt door meerdere Bijbelleraars uitgelegd wat dit leger is , en dat het niet, zoals in de profetische beweging wordt gesteld, het leger van God is wat de werken van satan zal gaan vernietigen, maar een leger wat door God gestuurd wordt tot oordeel van de kerk.

Dit wordt door David Pawson onderschreven. Hij schrijft in zijn boek “Sleutels tot de Bijbel”:

Aan het begin van hoofdstuk 2 beschrijft Joël dat het eerste wat je nu kunt verwachten, een herhaling van die sprinkhanenplaag is. Maar als je de tekst nader bestudeert, dan zul je zien dat die sprinkhanenplaag nu niets minder is dan een beschrijving van duizenden soldaten die het land binnen komen marcheren en die alles verwoesten, nog erger dan de sprinkhanen zouden kunnen. Dit beeld is nog veel erger dan het eerste; het roept veel meer ellende op. En inderdaad, als je kijkt naar de totale verwoesting, dan ligt het veel meer voor de hand dat Joël hier de Babyloniërs heeft beschreven.

Je ziet hier ook parallellen met Openbaring 9, waar opnieuw een plaag van sprinkhanenn wordt beschreven, die gevolgd wordt door een leger van 300 miljoen soldaten, die aan komen marcheren vanuit het Oosten. En of Joël nu soldaten beschrijft of een nieuwe sprinkhanenplaag – vast staat, dat God beide kon sturen en dat Zijn oordeel nog steeds nodig was.

Opnieuw herhaalt Joël de boodschap dat God op zoek is naar oprechte bekering.

De laatste zin is belangrijk genoeg om even bij stil te blijven staan. In Joël 2 is dus sprake van een oproep tot echte bekering, en God gebruikt daar een vijandig leger voor. Dit zou dus volledig tegenovergesteld zijn aan de stelling van de River-beweging dat zij het leger van Joël zijn. Of ze moeten zich bewust zijn, en dat niet tegen anderen vertellen, dat ze vijanden van het volk van God zijn, net zoals het leger van Joël in de Bijbel.

Maar dat klopt uiteraard niet met hun eigen claim dat ze Christenen zijn en juist bijzondere openbaringen van de Heer ontvangen. Dat zij juist degenen zijn die in bijzondere genade leven omdat de Here juist in hun kringen zulke wonderen en tekenen zou doen.

God gebruikte de Babyloniërs en die wisten drommels goed dat ze vijanden van het volk van God waren. Daardoor zijn er nu twee conclusies mogelijk:

  1. De Riverbeweging is misleidt en zij zijn niet het ‘leger van Joël’;
  2. De Riverbeweging is wel ‘het leger van Joël, zij zijn daarmee vijanden van het volk van God en dat weten ze ook.

Als het eerste het geval is, mogen we medelijden met hen hebben. Als het tweede het geval is, is de situatie veel erger en hebben we te maken met een bewuste duivelse infiltratie in de Kerk.

In het boek ‘Kundalini Warning’ wordt dieper ingegaan op de claim. Ook vindt u daarin een profetie en een uitleg over de betekenis van het ‘Leger van Joël”.

Lakeland Revival

Weinig ‘opwekkingen’ hebben zoveel aandacht in de media gekregen als deze. Het is een ‘opwekking’ die in april 2008 begon toen Todd Bentley werd uitgenodigd bij de Ignited Church in Lakeland, Florida. Deze ‘opwekking’ is op internet onder diverse namen te vinden, waaronder ‘The Great Florida Healing Revival’, ‘Lakeland Outpouring’, ‘Lakeland Outpouring Revival’, en andere creatieve variaties.

PART #2 – “Why I left the Prophetic Movement” – mirror

-by Andrew Strom.

I guess you will not be surprised to hear that I was flooded with 600 emails within 24 hours of my announcement that I was leaving the Prophetic movement. Many of them seemed to be highly supportive of the stand I had taken. (-A lot of people have seen alarming things in this movement). But I’m sure I will receive a lot of flak also.

For many years, even when I was truly disturbed by something I usually avoided “naming names” as much as possible. I do not approve of the ‘Heresy Hunters’ who seem to take such delight in maligning Spirit-filled ministries across the Internet. There is no delight in such things for me. Only grief and sadness that the name of Jesus is once again being brought down into the mud. We live in very sad times in the church today, don’t we?

After my previous article, many people asked me again to “name names” and announce clearly who the leaders were at this conference – even though that info was already at the top of my first email. For this one time, I am actually going to accede to their request – because we need to clear the air about these leaders and also a number of others as well. But I have to tell you, I have been totally heart-sick at having to talk about all this.

The speakers at this KC ‘Whitedove’ Conference were Bob Jones, Paul Keith Davis, Bobby Conner, John Paul Jackson, Shawn Bolz – plus Jim Goll and one or two others. Sadly, I have to say that I have rarely felt so grieved or devastated as when I witnessed the carryings-on at this event. If you get the ‘Elijah’ List (-the main Prophetic email List) you will recognize most of the names above as being amongst the top “movers and shakers” of the whole movement.

A number of people asked me about Rick Joyner and Morningstar Ministries. Where do they fit into all this? Well, seemingly Rick has always managed to keep himself at a slight distance from the worst excesses and controversies of this movement. (-Except for when he joined the Knights of Malta – an ancient Catholic Order. -By the way, that is probably what led to the fad of using swords to ‘knight’ people that swept through this movement a few years ago). I have read some of Joyner’s books and enjoy some of the things he says, but frankly, just because he has kept himself at a slight distance does not absolve him from the mess that the Prophetic is in today. The fact is, Mr Joyner is very close friends with almost all of the main leaders at this recent conference. He regularly ministers alongside them – and knows them very well. As a ‘father’ in the movement, if he had brought correction it would have been heeded, but he has clearly failed to do so. Thus, he has to be held accountable for the state of things as much as anyone else. And it would not surprise me if similar deception is finding it’s way into Morningstar conferences. (-A number of the same people are involved). Sadly then, I have had to remove any articles or links to Rick Joyner from my web-site – along with all the others.

And speaking of the sad and grievous state of this movement, I wonder how many of you received the following notice from the Elijah List recently about a forthcoming ‘School of the Prophets’: “God is releasing a new level of revelation that goes beyond just operating in the nine gifts of the Spirit…. Sessions will cover topics like Hearing the Voice of God, Activating your Spiritual Senses, Third Heaven Experiences, and Exploring Spirit Realms.” The advertised speakers are Todd Bentley, Stacey Campbell, Larry Randolph, Paul Keith Davis, and Bobby Conner.

Now, I have come across Todd Bentley’s teachings on “How to visit the Third Heaven” before, and I tell you, it is nothing less than ‘Guided Visualization’ taken straight out of the New Age movement. Nothing less and nothing more. It is exactly the same. And I want you to know that if you attend these kinds of things, or allow these men to ‘guide’ you or lay hands upon you, then you are opening yourself up to all kinds of spirits and demonic counterfeits. As I have stated before, this movement has absolutely NO DISCERNMENT at all. It has sunk into such deception that it’s leaders are opening people up to all kinds of demonic experiences on a daily basis. It has no idea that it is even doing it. -It behaves exactly like a movement that has been “given over to deception” by God. I urge again that everyone reading this would prayerfully consider CUTTING OFF all ties to this movement, lest you yourself become tainted by it.

It is with great sadness that I make the above points. I have refrained from saying such things in the past, but I can no longer do so, because untold people are being spiritually damaged by what is going on. Please understand my heart in this.

For the same reason I also need to warn you about another ‘prophetess’ who is often featured on the Elijah List. Her name is Jill Austin and I have personally witnessed her ministry in action. I would describe it as one of the most disturbing (by far) meetings that I have ever been in. There was definitely a strange “power” operating, but it certainly did not seem like God to me. She is also an expert at ‘hyping’ an audience. Please be very careful in such environments, my friends. -You can end up taking part in things that you would never normally do, just because you are part of a large crowd.

Sadly, there seem to be many other ministries in this movement involved in similar deception. In fact, I hate to say it, but a general rule might be that if someone is featured on the Elijah List, there has to be at least an 80% chance that their ministry is “off” in some major way. I will say just one more thing about the Elijah List: I am convinced that they will one day give account to God for taking upon themselves the name “Elijah” and then doing what they have done with it. Literally, by their own words they will be judged.
HOW TO AVOID DECEPTION

What a lot of people don’t seem to recognize is the sheer level of ‘peer pressure’ and “crowd manipulation” that is going on at many of these events. They end up being led into doing things they feel uncomfortable with, just because “everybody else” is doing it. They squash down their discernment. They ignore the “little voice” or the tiny ‘alarm bells’ inside them that are trying to get their attention. And thus, multitudes of Christians are being led astray – and paying through the nose for the privilege. I urge anyone reading this who has ever squashed down their discernment and participated in such things, to get before God and REPENT of opening yourself up in that way. It is very important that you confess this before God and ask His forgiveness. RENOUNCE all deception in Jesus’ name.

One thing we don’t have much time to discuss here is the MONEY issue. This is a huge problem in the Prophetic. Now, I do understand that ministries need finances to operate. I run a ministry myself. And as most of you know, about 5 times a year we put out a book or CD (available for any donation – or even just postage) to go towards the costs of keeping this ministry operating. However, the word itself is always free. It is terribly sad to see the charging of ‘entry fees’ to hear the word today, and the over-bearing emphasis on MONEY in the church. Did not Jesus clearly command: “Freely you have received, freely give”?
REDEFINING “PROPHET”

Just because I have cut myself off from today’s Prophetic movement does not mean that I believe there is no place for prophets in the church. In fact, I believe we need true prophets now more than ever. But you will notice that there has been a subtle shift in the use of the term “prophet” over the last 25 years, and I believe we need to get back to the original meaning. It was not long ago that when you spoke of a ‘prophet’ you were usually referring to someone like Keith Green, Leonard Ravenhill or David Wilkerson – someone who was crying out to the lukewarm church, “REPENT.” And if you look down the annals of history, you will find that there has never been a true Prophetic movement that did not have this as it’s core message. Every true Prophetic movement, right from the Old Testament down through every Revival and Awakening that I have ever studied, has been a movement of REPENTANCE. And yet we find today a movement that calls itself “Prophetic” – but with spiritual ‘revelations’ and words of knowledge at its core. -No piercing word. This is the precise reason why it has gone off the rails. -It has abandoned it’s age-old message. It’s ‘word’ has been corrupted.

I am convinced that God IS going to raise up true prophets in this hour to cry to the lukewarm church “Repent”. There is a movement coming that is utterly different from that which we have seen. God is coming to clean house. The “shaking” has already begun. And the “John-the-Baptists” whom God has prepared in the caves and wildernesses are about to arise and speak His word – just as in every Great Awakening down through history.

Some people asked me if I was going to shut down our web-sites and email Lists. Not at all. The whole point of what we’re doing is to call forth and encourage these “John-the-Baptists” whom God is raising up in this hour. We will not stop crying aloud until we see a great ‘Repentance’ Revival sweeping this nation from coast to coast.

As A.W. Tozer wrote of all true prophets down the ages: “God has always had His specialists whose chief concern has been the moral breakdown, the decline in the spiritual health of the nation or the church. Such men were Elijah, Jeremiah, Malachi and others of their kind who appeared at critical moments in history to reprove, rebuke and exhort in the name of God and righteousness… Such a man was likely to be drastic, radical, possibly at times violent, and the curious crowd that gathered to watch him work soon branded him as extreme, fanatical, negative. And in a sense they were right. He was single-minded, severe, fearless, and these were the qualities the circumstances demanded. He shocked some, frightened others and alienated not a few, but he knew who had called him and what he was sent to do. His ministry was geared to the emergency, and that fact marked him out as different, a man apart.”

An extra big THANKYOU to those who have been praying for us during this sad time. Truly appreciated, my friends.

God bless you all.

Kindest regards in Christ,

I’m leaving the Prophetic Movement – mirror

From: “ANZAC Prophetic List” <prophetic@…>
Date: Wed, 03 Nov 2004 15:32:29 -0600
I'm LEAVING the PROPHETIC MOVEMENT
-by Andrew Strom.

RE:  The KC 'Whitedove' Conference (-Main speakers:  Bob Jones,
Paul Keith Davis, Bobby Conner, John Paul Jackson - plus Jim 
Goll and others).

It is with great sadness that I make the following report.

I said last week that the 'Whitedove' conference in Kansas City
this past weekend would be a pivotal one. It certainly was
pivotal for me personally. I wish I could say that there was deep 
repentance - that the preaching was incredibly anointed and the 
crowd were on their faces crying before God. I wish I could say 
that, but I can't.  In fact, it seemed to me that the opposite was 
true. The saddest thing of all is that many people probably came 
away from this conference saying how "wonderful" and "uplifting" 
it was (-just as they always do). But I have to tell you, I was 
grieved to the core by it. Many parts of it I would even describe as
spiritually "sick".

Some people believe that the fall of Paul Cain into serious sin is
some kind of aberration - just one individual's problem. But I am 
convinced that the fall of Paul Cain (-who was recognised worldwide 
as the 'father' of this movement) is a symptom of a much wider
disease. The whole movement is sick. As I have stated in previous 
articles, the 'Prophetic' as we know it is really a "fallen" movement - 
since the early 1990's. But I always held out hope that it would 
somehow turn around and get back on track again. In fact, I believed 
that this conference was a heaven-sent opportunity for that to happen. 

However, after what I saw this weekend, I no longer believe this is 
possible. The deception is now too deep. This movement is being 
"given over to believe a lie" and I want no part of it. I am cutting 
myself off, because I cannot afford the disease to spread into what 
we ourselves are doing. Things have now gotten so bad that we have 
to separate ourselves - and to do so publicly.

As you know, I requested special prayer from you all last week that 
a true spirit of Repentance might prevail in this conference. The 
reason I made this request was because God had woken me up 
at 6 am the previous Friday and given me a strong word about the 
conference. (God only wakes me up like this quite rarely - perhaps 
five times a year).

The word He gave me was that this must be a 'repentance' conference -
that this was in essence the "last chance" for the Prophetic
movement because it had become more and more corrupt -
centered around money and 'ear-tickling' words, false prophecy and
so-on. This was a gathering of KEY prophets at a moment in time 
when the 'father' of the movement had just fallen. It was God's ideal 
moment for a truly "solemn assembly". (And yes - I did write and 
pass this word on - in person - to the three main leaders of the conference).

However, what actually eventuated at this event seemed to me to
be more akin to a circus than a solemn assembly. The music, 
the concert-style lighting, the stage dancers, the groaning tables 
stacked high with books and CD's for sale, the 'ear-tickling', the 
hype, the $40.00 door fee (plus extra offerings taken each session) - 
and that's just for starters.

What really bothered me about the weekend was the total lack 
of any truly 'prophetic' preaching. There was some good stuff on 
Self-pity and Bitterness right near the start, but after that it was 
mostly downhill. As always, there were plenty of anecdotes and 
tales of angelic visitations, etc. There were Scriptures quoted and 
a few helpful insights. But as far as a message that truly pierces 
and challenges and convicts - well, don't go looking for that in THIS 
prophetic movement! In fact, there were warnings AGAINST any 
message that might come across as even slightly "condemning", 
and there was even one of those cute talks on the need for 
"loving oneself", etc.

Today's prophets seem to talk a lot ABOUT the 'sword of the Lord' 
but never actually bring it to bear. They bring no piercing word. And 
thus the entire movement is open to great deception. And instead of 
REPENTANCE, people are getting all kinds of counterfeit spiritual 
experiences. There seems to be almost no discernment at all. 

The ON-STAGE DANCING throughout this conference was a good 
example. Now, I myself am a rock musician, but from the beginning 
these dance items had a rather 'wild' aspect to them that truly made
me uncomfortable in my spirit. There was even one that came 
across like a sensual 'Harem' dance. Much of it really felt "off" - 
and almost anyone who sees the videos will tell you so. Even the 
worship had a very "tribal" feel to it at times. And by Day Three they 
were doing dance items with just loud voodoo-style drums only - 
and leaping around in a frenzied circle making weird cries to the 
super-amplified beat. The feeling in the room was so oppressive and  
"pagan" during this, that I could hardly even bear to stay in there. 
Then came one of the most shocking statements of the whole 
conference - from one of the main prophets. He got up and said  
that people may feel uncomfortable with such obviously "pagan"
type dancing, but that it was originally God's type of dancing and 
we were just now 'stealing back' what the pagans had stolen from God! 

I have to admit, this was the last straw for me. What could be more
blatant? What kind of 'spirits' do they think are being transmitted to
people who open themselves up to that music?  There is no
discernment in this movement at all. 

Now, I do not primarily blame the dancers. They were young and 
possibly immature. (-They weren't actually from 'Whitedove' itself). 
Clearly, most of the blame lies with the main prophets who invited 
them in and openly endorsed and promoted what was happening 
the whole time. They would get up and publicly acclaim these 
dance items, thus ensuring that the spirit of it would pervade the 
entire event. And indeed it did - more and more. 

Remember, most of the major "movers and shakers" of the Prophetic 
movement were at this conference, going along with this stuff. I 
repeat what I said earlier: This movement demonstrates absolutely 
NO DISCERNMENT. I urge everyone to GET OUT NOW, before 
even worse is brought in. I believe this movement is RIGHT NOW 
being given over to deception by God - and it is going to get much worse. 

Even the 'spiritual' moments in this conference often had strong
touches of "Charis-mania" excess about them. And this was not 
the 'harmless, silly' kind of excess, either. It was at a level where I 
believe demonic spirits of deception were clearly at work. By the 
last session the audience was so hyped that they threw away all 
inhibition and leapt into the 'pagan' dancing themselves with wild 
abandon. And one of the main prophets even got up and announced 
that there were angels in the room going around "blowing on people's 
fingers" if only they would lift them up in the air. That particular part
sounds silly, but actually the whole thing by this stage had become 
awful beyond words. Virtually every day I came home utterly grieved 
and depressed. I had come to this conference with great expectancy 
and hope, thinking that the return of Bob Jones may bring a renewal 
of all that was originally good about this movement. I literally came 
as a 'friend' and they turned me into an enemy in the space of three days.

Below are the SPECIFIC THINGS that God told me He has against 
this movement as a whole:
-The giving and receiving of "ear-tickling" words. 
-The giving and receiving of money in expectation of prophecy. 
-False words and false teaching. 
-The lack of a true Repentance message. 
-The spiritual 'blindness' that allows familiar spirits and spirits of
divination to flourish. 
-The failure of this movement to judge itself, meaning that God 
must judge it. 
-The idolising of well-known prophets - placing them on a pedestal. 
-And so on....

WHAT NOW for us?

Well, obviously, with great sadness we must now totally cut 
ourselves off from today's Prophetic Movement. Any related links 
and articles will be removed from our web-site immediately.

As you know, for some time now I have spoken of the 'John-the-
Baptist' type ministries that must arise to preach REPENTANCE 
in the Western nations. -Preachers of righteousness with a piercing 
word, like the Finneys, the Wesleys and the Whitefields of old. 
Such ministries are essential for true Revival to come. I now see 
that this new move must completely "separate itself" from the 
influence of the existing Prophetic movement. We need a 
completely 'NEW' Prophetic, and to keep it from being tainted by 
the sickness that has infected the old, there must be a complete 
cutting-off and a "leaving behind".

I urge all of you to take this before the Lord for yourself. We live 
in very dangerous times, and I believe the old Prophetic literally 
stands under the judgement of God. 

For our ministry in Kansas City, what this means is that we have 
to go right back to the original calling and mandate over this city,
and build on that. We cannot build on the movement that came
after. The 21 days of prayer and fasting, the comet that came, 
and the comission to preach Repentance to the Lukewarm 
church - these were all foundational elements. So too were the four 
standards of "Holiness of heart, Unwavering faith, Day and Night 
prayer, and Extravagant Giving to the Poor". The original Prophetic 
move here seemed to be relatively pure for only a few years - and 
then quickly became a quagmire. So we have to stick to only the 
original foundations - and build on that. Our Sunday night meetings 
in Kansas City will certainly continue.

There were prophecies last year that a 'new' prophetic - a "second 
phase" was about to begin. I do believe this. But what we need to 
make sure of is that it does not become ensnared in the garbage 
of this previous movement. It must be totally NEW.

I would ask that you forward this email to as many Lists as you
can, and to your Christian friends. We want it as widely known
as possible that we have cut off all relations with the current 
Prophetic movement - and why we did it.

To email me with any feedback, please write to:
prophetic@...

As you can tell, it has been a terribly sad and devastating weekend 
for myself and my family. We would truly appreciate your prayers
at this time, my friends.

God bless you all.

Kindest regards in Christ,

Andrew Strom.

New Wine Drinking Song

LET OP:
Opname van deze tekst op onze site is puur en alleen als mirror ter ondersteuning van het vertaalde boek van Andrew Strom en de bijbehorende artikelen op onze site, zoals het artikel ‘Quotes en verwijzingen Kundalini Warning

Opname op onze site betekent dus geenszins dat wij achter de ‘inhoud’ van dit lied staan!!

 

Dear New Winos:

I am not a songwriter, neither the son of a songwriter, but the Lord gave me a “New Winos Drinking Song Number One”. You can sing it to the tune of “Tis the Gift to be Simple” or “When the Roll is Called Up Yonder”.

See if it makes you as drunk as it makes me!
It goes like this:
If you feel too serious and kind of blue,
I’ve got a suggestion, just the thing for you!
It’s a little unconventional, but so much fun,
That you won’t even mind when people think you’re dumb!

Just come to the party God is throwing right now,
We can all lighten up and show the pagans how
Christians have more fun and keep everyone guessing,
Since the Holy Ghost sent us the Toronto blessing!

I used to think life was serious stuff;
I didn’t dare cry, so I acted kind of tough
‘Til the Spirit of God put laughter in my soul,
Now the Holy Ghost’s got me, and I’m out of control!

CHORUS:

Now I’m just a party animal grazing at God’s trough,
I’m a Jesus junkie, and I can’t get enough!
I’m an alcoholic for that great New Wine,
‘Cause the Holy Ghost is pouring, and I’m drinking all the time!

Now I laugh like an idiot and bark like a dog,
If I don’t sober up, I’ll likely hop like a frog!
And I’ll crow like a rooster ‘til the break of day,
‘Cause the Holy Ghost is moving, and I can’t stay away!

Now I roar like a lioness who’s on the prowl,
I laugh and I shake, maybe hoot like an owl!
Since God’s holy river started bubbling up in me,
It spills outside, and it’s setting me free!

So, I’ll crunch and I’ll dip and I’ll dance round and round,
‘Cause the pew was fine, but it’s more fun on the ground!
So I’ll jump like a pogo stick, then fall on the floor,
‘Cause the Holy Ghost is moving, and I just want MORE!

Love, Kathryn Riss

Dear New Winos:

Re: the “New Winos Drinking Song Number One”:

The Lord gave me a better tune for it. It’s a variation on “When the Roll is Called Up Yonder.” The “Jesus Junkie” verse turns out to be the chorus, so just sing it in between the other verses. It follows the chorus tune of “When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder”. The third line repeats the first line. The fourth line repeats the beginning of the second line, then bounces down. Fill in the long notes (“ROLL, YONDER,” etc.) with dotted eighths and sixteenths to fit in the words. The verses sound like the verses for “When the Roll”, except that instead of holding out the last note (“FAIR, THERE,” etc.), you continue the bouncy rhythm and do a little turn to fit in the words. It’s easy! See if you can figure it out — I don’t think I can do music notation on the computer very well. I play it in the key of C, because that’s the easiest key to figure out on the piano if you don’t know how to play the piano, which I don’t. As I said, I am not a songwriter, neither the son of a songwriter!

Somebody asked me for permission to “use it.” I told the Lord if He ever gave me any music, I would give it away. So, the rules I just made up for “using it” are:

1. Everybody sing it as much as you want and get as drunk as you can! Just thinking about it gives me holy laughter. I taught the Jesus Junkie verse (it was all I could get out from laughing so hard) to our little prayer group last night, and they all got pretty sloshed, for Presbyterians. Especially since the guy who was supposed to bring his guitar came late, without it, so the only other music we sang all evening was “Happy Birthday to You.” A capella.

2. Pass it on to as many other New Winos as you want.

3. Post any new verses you make up to the New Wine List, so we can all enjoy them.

4. Give God ALL the glory, and DON’T MERCHANDISE IT. Just give it away! Don’t put your name on it, copyright it, make a jillion tapes and sell it, or otherwise use it to try to become a big shot. Let God be the big shot; we’ll all stay little shots and have more fun! (It’s a proven fact that big shots have more headaches.)

I think any other Drinking Songs the Lord gives us should be handled the same way. Okay?

Blessings!

Kundalini waarschuwing – Ernstig!

Vertaling van een in het Engels verschenen artikel van Andrew Strom met een ernstige waarschuwing voor de invloeden van hindoeïsme en kundalini in de moderne kerk
