Þ The manifestation of tongues with the ‘baptism in the holy spirit’ supposedly ‘proved’ that the ‘holy spirit’ can ‘now be given’ by mere mortal ‘christs’ like Parham.  This new baptism is so ‘powerful,’ it allegedly “returned” the so-called “lost gift” of speaking in tongues to humanity!  Suddenly, Pentecostals were the “Haves;” the ‘exclusively saved,’ “chosen generation” who had this “special power.”  The poor Have-Nots were the ones who had “nothing.” 

►►► Parham’s doctrine is so entrenched in the minds of Pentecostals, they actually ‘adjusted’ Jesus’ declaration in Mark 16:16 to go like this, “He who believes and is baptized [“in the spirit with the evidence of tongues,”] will be saved; but he who does not [receive this superpower-baptism of tongues,] will be condemned.” 

Þ This is one of the most blasphemous lies I have ever heard.  Jesus, by His own example, commanded the water baptism of disciples in Mt. 28:19-20 and in Mark 16:16-18.  According to the reaction of the believers in Acts when they accepted Jesus through the truth of His Gospel, (Kjv, Acts 8:35-38,) they all obeyed and taught the water baptism in Mark 16:16 and Mt. 28:19-20.  This commandment of Jesus at His ascension was, still is, and for as long as there are believers on earth, will always be the water baptism of believing disciples.     

►►►  At first, Pentecostal clergy only gave this baptism by the laying on of hands.  Some Pentecostal churches, quite orderly but still severely deceived, still adhere to this rule.  But generally, anyone can now ‘get’ this baptism through their Charismatic ‘river of anointing’ when their clergy touch, kick, blow, wave, click their fingers, or flap their jackets over people, who then manifest tongues, as well as the most chaotic and unbiblical spirits imaginable. 

They now also allege that people do not have to hear the Gospel of Christ to be saved; they must just “believe in god in the way they understand him.”  But this is not the God of the Bible.  It is “another Jesus,” the false ‘cosmic christ’ of ecumenical Roman Catholic Christianity, who teaches universalism, or “anyone can choose how they will be saved,” (2 Cor. 11:4, 14, K.j.v.)  Still, this “super experience” is allegedly a ‘better’ or ‘higher’ salvation.  Those who were thus “filled with the holy spirit,” are allegedly “more saved and more holy,” and “on a higher Christian level” than those who did not “experience” this “baptism.”  One drawback of this “filling” is that it does not last.  Hence, the successive “outpourings or baptisms ‘in’ the holy spirit.” 

 

APART FROM BEING BORN AND RAISED IN THE OCCULT, PEOPLE GET CAUGHT IN SATANISM-VOODOOISM because it is a religion that provides instant magic, (Pow!) spiritual manifestations on command, entertainment, acceptance, instant gratification, power over people and allegedly, also over circumstances.  Satanism is a wild lust-greed-power religion ruled by only one self-enhancing precept:  “Do what thou whilst is the whole of the law!” 

Thus, it is not uncommon for Satanists and ex-Satanists to fit snugly into Power Religions such as the Pentecostal Movement, which is also based on the same principles. I.e., entertainment, instant gratification, wealth, success, popularity, positive confession, auto-suggestion, hypnotism, visualization or the alleged creation of your own miracles, etcetera.

As found in their “little gods and christs” teaching, people join this Movement because they believe God makes them into supermen and wonder-women through their self-enhancing superpower: the tongue-baptism.  Whether they want to know it or not, from their get-rich-quick tithing franchises to their “attend all the church gatherings to get church membership,” the same law governs them as in raw Satanism: “Do what thou willst is the whole of the law,” (utter lawlessness.) 

Þ This is why Jesus warned against this signs-and-wonders Movement in Mt. 7:20-24, saying, “You shall know them by their fruits, [not by their anointing, gifts, wealth, health, or so-called ‘miracles.’] Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.  Many will say to Me in That Day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied, cast out demons, and done many wonders in Your Name?”  And then I will say to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness’” - or Satanism.  (1 Sam. 15:23; Kjv.) 

Protestantism and its mother Catholicism tripped millions of people through the ages.  But it is in these last of the last days where millions more are falling into the arms of the devil because they do not listen to what Jesus prophesied in Mt. 24:3-32, “Beware that no one deceives you.  For many will come in My Name, saying, ‘I am the christ,’ and will deceive many… [This is exactly what this Movement proclaims.] Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.  And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many [who were disillusioned and hurt,] will grow cold.  But he who endures [in Me and the truth of My Word] to the end shall be saved.”  

Yet, these supermen and wonderwomen practice escalating “lawlessness” and say they are the “Haves” because they have super power - their ‘tongues-baptism.’  Of course, this clearly relates to the masonic teaching, (as masonic orders govern them and all other churches,) of “the elite enlightened ones” versus the unenlightened goyim or ‘lower,’ ‘mindless cattle.’  Their hyper power, tongue-baptism makes these “Haves” “more saved,” “more anointed,” “more loved,” and “more favored by God” than the Have-Nots.  This tongue-power is like Superman with his kryptonite.  Without it he is weak and useless; with it he can circle the earth in a few seconds. 

The “Have Nots,” on the other hand, are diseased, poor, unholy, sorry slaves for of a lack of positive confession — but mostly, because they neglect to pay their tithes and “give until it hurts.”  And most importantly, they lack the “tongue-spirit-baptism,” which will “initiate” them into the world of supermen and wonderwomen; wielding their superpower-tongue wand! 

 

Even in the days of the old prophet Ezekiel, people sought after religious entertainers. Ezk. 33:31-32, “…Their hearts pursued their own gain… [so, preachers] were to them as a very lovely song of one who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument; for they hear Your [true] words, but they do not do them.” The same happened in New Testament Christianity when the first, persecuted assemblies of true believers, (the ecclesia or The Way,) were fertilized with the ‘power’ seeds of Roman Catholic Church Christianity, (Acts 9:2; 22:4; 24:4; 19:9, 23 - 11:26.) Today, preaches such as Benny Hinn openly declare that the Catholics have more miracles than Pentecostals!

Jesus is the Creator and God of both the natural and supernatural realms.  His Spiritual Kingdom (Jn. 18:36) originated from, and is seated in the spirit world, and the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit are real and all-powerful, (Mark 16:16-18.)

Þ Yet, Jesus rebuked those who sought after Him just because they wanted to live on spiritual experiences and paranormal power; by sight and not by faith. He said, “A wicked and adulterous generation demands a sign…” (Mt. 16:4.)

The Pentecostal/Charismatic Movement is in its Fourth Wave, (called Charismatic Hermeneutics,) of so-called “successive ‘Holy Spirit’ outpourings through ‘new’ Pentecosts.”  Essentially, Charismatic Hermeneutics means, “Broad or general, non specific interpretations of Scripture.”  Thus, “Hermeneutics” explain exactly why they can say, “Don’t read the Bible; be the Bible!”  In other words, “Do what thou willst is the whole of the law.” 

One may seriously ask, “Is the utter lawlessness of the Pentecostal-Charismatic Movement Christian Satanism?” 

 

A FRIEND BROUGHT EX-SATANIST JOHN RAMIREZ’ TESTIMONY AND TEACHINGS TO MY ATTENTION

John’s Ramirez’s life demonstrates how almighty God is, and of course, what power God allows the devil to have in this world, (1 Jn. 5:19.)  When God finally saved this high mason and Satanist, he came under the mentorship of David Wilkerson. But believers must also “test” the authenticity of Wilkerson’s teachings, because the souls of millions are affected by Pentecostal/Charismatic, masonic dogma, (1 Ths. 5:21; 1 Jn. 4:1-4.)  Wilkerson leaned strongly towards Pentecostal-Charismatic, extra-Scriptural doctrines, the Kingdom-Now theology, chaotic spiritual manifestations, and Messianic Judaism

Christians together in the highlands and islands,’ wrote, “[The well-respected] Mr. Wilkerson discredited himself… After denouncing the kind of 'laughing & drunken' counterfeit revivals associated with the Pensacola and Toronto fiascos, in his excellent recording "Reproach On The Solemn Assembly"... he rejected solid warnings and accepted a number of engagements to speak to many of the… churches that continued promoting these very deceptions. One church he spoke at in The English Midlands promoted Benny Hinn only one month later. Mr. Wilkerson then began defending [them] and criticized their opponents who warned [against] them. Mr. Wilkerson then went to London to a church that followed the Toronto Experience and Paul Cain, the mentor of Todd Bentley (who engraved, among other things, the Knight’s Templar Order insignia into his hand…) Mr. Wilkerson spoke of being on the ground laughing unable to get up because “God's Hand was on him.” The Fruit of The Spirit is 'Self Control' (ekreitei) not the lack of it. The fact that he 'could not get up' proves it was not God's Hand that was upon him. The Word of God teaches the very antithesis.”

It is sad to read how Ramirez believes God is “waking up” the leaders of the church. If one studies the Pentecostal-Charismatic Movement, you will find that Roman Catholic, Jesuit, and other masonic orders govern them all. Hence, they are continually sliding deeper and deeper into the dark abyss of false teachings and demonic spiritual manifestations.  So, it saddens me that this ex-Satanist escaped secular Satanism to fall into the Pentecostal power trap.  I messaged him on Facebook and spoke to him in love, warning him of the dangers of the Pentecostal-Charismatic Movement, and their Jesuit-masonic leadership.  I asked him politely to look at my studies on this Movement and the masonic ties of its leaders, who are prophetically governed by Rick Joyner, a self-declared Knight of Malta.  Until now, he hasn’t made an attempt to answer me.  But I still hope that Ramirez seriously desires to know and serve the God of the Bible in spirit and in truth, (Jn. 4:21-24.) 

 

In Ramirez’s testimony, he said, battling with Satan ‘in hell,’ a cross appeared before him. Now Jesus warned in Lu. 16:19-31 that no one can go either to heaven or hell and come back. He “put the cross on Satan and the devil fell to his knees.” He alleges he “defeated” Satan this way. If one knows anything about Roman Catholicism and how it is ingrained into all church dogma as the “mother” of Christianity, it is clear that the cross in his vision came, I believe subliminally, from the dogmas of the Roman Catholic Church. Jesus Alone could ‘defeat’ Satan – and Jesus did that in full on Golgotha not in hell, (Col. 2:13-15.) Hence, we are “more than conquerors” because we firmly stand on His completed atonement in our place. We will never again have to ‘defeat’ the already defeated devil and his demons. But we must “overcome [their wiles and assaults] by the blood of the Lamb, [Jesus’ full atonement in our place,] and the word of our testimony, [not to say how great we are, but that we, the forgiven,] do not love our lives even unto death,” [Col. 1:13-14; Rev. 12:11.]” 

Being the very high Satanist that Ramirez was, he must know that crosses and other occult objects do not scare, never mind “defeat” Satan. The cross may be a symbol of manmade church Christianity, but it is only by our faith in Jesus Himself and His full atonement in our place, that we can “overcome” the devil and his demons. John should also know that pentagrams, and stylized pentagrams like the masonic so-called Star of David, (David never had a ‘star,’) do not belong to, or refer to the Kingdom of Jesus Christ in any way.  Yet, in “standing with Israel” in Jesus-denying Messianic Judaism, he poses in front of this so-called ‘star’ without warning anyone according to his great knowledge of the masonic orders and the occult. 

 

THE GIFT OF TONGUES “DEFEATS” SATAN IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE? 

Ramirez also teaches, "Weapon #7: Our heavenly language. Speaking in tongues builds up our inner man when we are in communion with our God. In the Scriptures, Paul makes a profound statement by saying, ‘I speak in tongues more than you all,’” (1 Cor. 14:18 KJV.)  [And then Paul added, but in the assembly I would rather speak five words with my understanding that I may teach others also, than ten thousand words in a tongue,” 1 Cor. 14:15-19.] 

Did Ramirez forget about the billions of believers through the ages that never received the gift of tongues as the Holy Spirit “gives His gifts as He wills” — and that Paul clearly asked, “Do all speak in tongues?  Do all interpret?”  (1 Cor. 12:1-11; 29-31.)  Still, according to this Pentecostal doctrine, billions of believers were not baptized in the so-called “tongue-baptism,” and were therefore allegedly “unsaved.” But didn’t Paul ignore the gifts of the Holy Spirit, tongues too, when he proclaimed in Rom. 8:9, “If anyone does not have the [Real Indwelling] Spirit of Christ, he is not His?”

The gift of tongues is just one of the indwelling Spirit’s gifts, which He gives “as He wills,” (1 Cor. 12:4-11.) 

Þ The gift of tongues, (and all His gifts are wonderful,) is actually a “sign for unbelievers,” not for believers, (1 Cor. 14:22.) Scripture-obeying disciples of Jesus know that the Spirit fully indwells all sincere believers; they do not need "signs." Yet, to experience God's true signs is grace from our Father in Heaven; praise His Holy Name! (Mark 16:16-18.) Yet, we live by faith in Christ according to the truth of God's Word and the leading of the Holy Spirit, not by signs and miracles, like people do in the occult. That is why Jesus said in Mt. 16:4, "A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah" - Jesus' resurrection form the dead! 

Living and praying “in the spirit” is not confined to the gift of tongues as the Pentecostal Movement teaches.  If it were true that the gift of tongues “evidences” the ‘Holy Spirit baptism,’ or the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, it must ‘save’ us.  Then the other gifts like the gift of healings, etcetera, can also ‘save’ us.  But that is just ridiculous, isn’t it?  Jesus said in Mt. 4:14, 21-24, “Whoever drinks of this Water, [Jesus’ Truth through Jesus Himself Who Is Truth,] shall never thirst again… [For] it will become in him a fountain of water [spiritual life] springing up into everlasting life… You will neither worship the Father on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.. [But after My death and resurrection, and the once-off outpouring of the indwelling Holy Spirit at Pentecost, all] true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, [in their born again human spirits and in the Truth of God’s contextual Word, Jn. 1:11-13; 3:3-5; Gal. 4:6-7.]” 

All sincere, personally born again believers of Jesus are possessed by the Holy Spirit, (Eph. 1:13-14.) They might not all have the gift of tongues, but they all received gifts from the Holy Spirit Who lives within them to minister to each other in the body of Christ, (1 Cor. 12:4-11; 12-31.) Whether they pray or worship the Father through the gift of tongues, or constantly in their innermost being or born again human spirits, speaking to Him inwardly and outwardly in sincere words of understanding, all true believers in Christ are “in the Spirit” – or indwelt by The Biblical Spirit of God. 

 

THE DEVIL CANNOT TOUCH THOSE WHO SPEAK IN TONGUES? 

Ramirez also states that the devil cannot touch those who speak in tongues, or as he puts it, “those who pray in the spirit.”  God firmly refuted this dogma in 1 Jn. 5:18, “[Whether you have the wonderful gift of tongues or not,] we know that whoever is born of God, [by sincerely accepting Jesus, Jn. 1:12-13,] does not sin [habitually Jam. 3:2 Kjv.]  But he who has been born of God keeps himself [from deliberate, unrepented sin,] and the wicked one does not touch him.” 

This proves that the gift of tongues, just like any other gift of the Spirit, is not “a weapon [or protection] against the devil.”  The full atonement of Jesus in our place, obedience to the Truth of His New Testament Covenant, our minute-by-minute relationship with Him as His disciples, the leading of the Holy Spirit, and the mighty protection of His holy angels, “empower” us to “withstand the wiles [or schemes] of the devil” to “overcome” his onslaughts.  All the gifts of the Spirit, tongues included, remain “signs” that He is living in His born again temple of true believers.  According to the full context of God’s Word, all the millions of sincere believers, (all those who do, and do not speak in tongues but keep themselves from sin,) cannot be touched by the devil – excluding God’s permission to Satan to “test” and "prove" them, (1 Pt. 4:12-19.) 

 

IS THE GIFT OF TONGUES THE ‘FIRE’ OR ‘SPECIAL POWER’ OF THE HOLY SPIRIT? 

Truth is always in the context of Scripture.  John the Baptist explained exactly what ‘the baptism of fire’ means.  He said in Mt. 3:11-12 “I indeed baptize you in water… but [Jesus] will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and [with] fire.  [And this is what the baptism with fire means.] His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” 

Jesus explained the baptism with fire in Mt. 20:21-23.  He said, “[You want My spiritual authority,] but are you able to [first] drink the cup that I am about to drink [at the cross] and be baptized with the baptism [of fire or suffering] that I am baptized with?  …You will indeed [shortly after your rebirth in Me suffer] the baptism that I Am baptized with, [like I had to endure in the wilderness after I was baptized in water, and even like I have to endure on the cross… Gal. 2:19-21.]” 

However, in a neat piece of Charismatic witchcraft, Pentecostals completely separated the two firmly connected verses of Mt. 3:11-12 from each other to change the meaning of Jesus’ ‘baptism of fire,’ which is the terrible affliction of being tested on God’s threshing floor, into their so-called superpower tongues baptism. 

In the context of Jesus’ Holy-Spirit baptism in these two connected verses and throughout the New Testament, the gift of tongues is not the “fire” or ‘power’ of the Pentecostal Movement to do their own miracles and so, to allegedly “defeat” Satan.  The true fire of Jesus’ Holy Spirit Baptism, (after He had placed the Holy Spirit inside His newborn temples at the moment of their sincere acceptance of Him, Jn. 1:12-13; 3:3-5; Gal. 6-7; Rom. 8:9,) is actually a baptism of suffering, which follows the rebirth in Christ. Jesus demonstrated this “fire” baptism by going into the wilderness after His water baptism to resist Satan’s temptation there.  So, this ‘time of testing’ to “clean out His threshing floor” with the purpose of separating the chaff from the wheat in the “fire” of affliction, follows the rebirth and water baptism of all sincere believers.  Jesus’ Scriptural ‘baptism of fire’ “tests” and ‘proves’ the commitment of all sincere believers to Christ

The indwelling Holy Spirit already gave all His sincerely, personally born again believers His authority or full anointing, (1 Jn. 2:20; 27,) not to flaunt His power, but “to be His witnesses to the whole world,” (Acts 1:8-9; Mt. 28:19-20.)

Of course, the Spirit then gives His individual, powerful, supernatural gifts to each believer “as He wills,” (1 Cor. 12:4-11,) to serve the body of Christ and to evangelize the whole world, (Mark 16:16-18.) 

 

"SHOES OF PEACE 'DESTROY' SATAN?"  (EPH. 6:15.) 

 

Image may contain: shoes and text

In testing another doctrine that John Ramirez preaches, I took a closer look at their “shoes of peace,” by which he says, he also ‘defeats’ the [completely defeated] devil, (Eph. 6:10-19.)  Paul testified in Col. 2:11-15; “You who have been dead in your sin and ungodliness He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the [sins recorded in heaven’s Books, Rev. 20:12-15.]  He nailed all your trespasses to the cross, having disarmed principalities and powers, made a public spectacle of them, and triumphing over them in it.”  The utterly defeated devil can now only terrorise us — and we must deal with him by “submitting to God, resisting him steadfastly in the faith, and he will flee from us. [In this way,] we must draw near to God so that He will draw near to us.  We must cleanse our hands and purity our heats from double-mindedness…  We must humble ourselves and God will lift us up, so that [the devil can have no hold on us, Jam, 4:7-10.]” 

Where do we find any of this Superpower Movement’s supermen entitlement in the truth of God’s Word?  Both the 1933 and 1983 versions of the King James Bible wrote Eph. 6:15 as follows, "Having your feet shod [or shoed] with the preparedness to preach the Gospel of peace." It actually reads in the context of the KJV, “Stand, therefore… [resist or withstand the defeated devil’s attacks, wiles, and deceptions, Jam. 4:7-8,] having shod [shoed] your feet with the preparation of the Gospel of Peace…” This is readiness or willingness to proclaim the Truth of the Gospel as Jesus commanded in Mt. 28:18-20, which differs drastically from their so-called ‘shoes of peace.’

Eph. 6:15 is actually a twofold commandment that cuts straight to 1) our obedience to withstand in our spiritual integrity or allegorical armor the onslaughts, deceptions, and schemes of the devil, 2) to always be willing to obey Jesus’ commission to proclaim His True Gospel as the Holy Spirit opens up opportunities for us to follow Him, (Mt. 28:18-20.) 

If we are not willing to obey Jesus’ commission to shine His true Light and to be the preserving, purifying salt of the Holy Spirit, we are not “standing” with our “feet shoed in the preparedness to proclaim of the Gospel of peace.”  And so, through our disobedience to Jesus, we lose a major part of our symbolical armor to withstand the onslaughts and deceptions of evil forces, which were completely defeated by Jesus.  Jesus gave us “full authority” to Preach His Gospel of Peace, (Mt. 28:18-20.)  But we will give the devil great advantage over us if we disobey Jesus’ commission to preach His Gospel. 

Þ So, Ramirez takes this important, dual command of God way off base.  His teaching is not what the verse, (which he refers to as “the shoes of peace that defeats Satan,") means. The entire Pentecostal-Charismatic Movement awfully misquotes and abuses Eph. 6:15.  Ramirez teaches his own version of what Joyce Meyer and their other leaders say.  They allege, “’The shoes of peace’ means walking in [unconditional] peace and love with all people…” (Col. 2:9-15.)  Of course, we must, “as far as possible, and as far as it depends on us, live in peace with all people,” (Rom. 12:18.) But Scripture does not say “shoes of peace” because Eph. 6:15 does not speak of their compromising ‘peace.’  Even true Gospel-Peace can only exist with those who sincerely choose to obey Jesus.  And only the full atonement of Jesus in our place could defeat the devil at the crossSo, no matter which way they turn their ‘shoes of peace’ dogma, it still cannot fit into the truth of Scripture. 

It is impossible to live in Jesus’ true Gospel-Peace with unbelievers and disobedient believers.  The best we can do to live in peace with unrepented people is to let them be when they decidedly reject Jesus' Gospel.  After that, we must keep on following Jesus.  But before this, we must preach Jesus’ redeeming Gospel to them as part of our armor in Christ!
