I was simply relating that I entirely trust Mike's character. I would trust him with my money, my children, and my life, if he gave me his word.[I will trust Jesus only with my soul.] He acted with integrity in the issues with Bob Jones, and Paul Cain, and I believe that he desired them to be restored, and also acted wisely in a manner that would protect the body at the same time. That does not mean that I agree with everything he does or oversees. I personally do not endorse IHOP, but that is another issue entirely, and does not affect my respect or fellowship with him.
Brothertom,I left you a couple of PM's and would appreciate it if you would consider responding.
I take great offense at the way you generalize and say "these IHOP people" and put them all in the same boat...that is blantantly unjust! God has raised up IHOP which has been instrumental in raising up houses of prayer all over the world which are filled with people who have a passion for interceding and seeking God. It is a gross injustice to flippantly make such statements and discredit the entire ministry just becasue a few who were associated with it have fallen into sin. I assure you the people of IHOP are NOT on a forum like this bashing others, they're hidden in a prayer room, crying out to God 24/7 to purify His bride and to glorify the name of Jesus.
I wont apologize for offending you on that point. You're not offended by me, you're offended by God's Word. If it's an apology you desire, then seek one from God.
Amen... the phrase "touch not the Lord's annointed" used by these people is taken out of context, and then is abused in the worse fashion to cover up gross heresy and lifestyles, and to silence those who would expose them....unfortunately for them, some of us are not easily intimidated.If God be for me, who can be against me?Krispy
In context, especially with Rick Joyner, a book could be written about the error expoused as "anointing". What biblical authority does he have to refute anything to do with revival? Will we be hacked to pieces by the great sword of the holy and brave Knights of Malta he carries? Really. I'm not kidding.
