Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1)

Heaven Come?

Dear reader, we have made this website in a sincere attempt to expose and bring to light the hidden things of dishonesty and damnable heresies of the Bethel movement. With all sincerity and heartfelt desire for the glory of God and to defend His glorious truth and gospel, we urge you to consider the information presented on this website. May God grant you ears to hear what His Spirit saith!

What do the Scriptures teach concerning the Kingdom of God coming to this earth? Is it the abolishment of pain, suffering, affliction, and the curses of God as Bethel believes, or is it something entirely different?

In the last days we are warned...
  • God shall be wroth for a time with His people and give them into the hands of Mystery Babylon who will make war and prevail against them! (Isaiah 47:6, Dan 7:21)
  • “FALSE CHRISTS and FALSE PROPHETS shall rise, and shew UNPRECEDENTED DISPLAYS OF POWER, SIGNS and WONDERS IN THE NAME OF CHRIST, TO SEDUCE, if it were possible, even the elect” (Mark 13:22) to love their lives and feel that peace and safety is coming rather than sudden destruction (1 Thess. 5:1-3)
  • The ANTICHRIST himself will arise: deceiving and destroying many with flatteries (Dan. 11:32), prosperity (Dan 8:25), and carnal peace (Ezek. 7:25) in a world about to enter into the greatest time of tribulation that ever was or has been (Mat. 24:21)
  • Godliness will be widely accepted to be in agreement with loving yourself (1 Tim. 6:5), living in pleasure, wealth and prosperity on the earth (Jas. 5:3,5), NOT being persecuted, suffering tribulation, or being hated by those who are ungodly, SO THAT friendship with the world will not be understood as a declaration of war against God (Jas. 4:4; 2 Tim 3:1-5).
And we are promised...
  • That the Lord Jesus shall raise up two prophets who will be clothed in sackcloth, mourning over the state of the earth that has turned aside after the Antichrist. He will give them power to smite the earth with all plagues, turn the waters into blood and torment the entire earth so that they have no peace in their sinful desire to live in pleasure on the earth! (Rev 11:3-10; James 5:5)
  • The Bride of Christ will make herself ready (Rev 19:7) and stand with them to oppose the false peace of the antichrist kingdom, and follow their Lord in being the light of the world, (John 3:19-20, 7:7) testifying that their works are evil! (Eph 5:25-27, Prov 28:4) Warning those who will live in pleasure on the earth and heap up treasures in the last days will be slaughtered (James 5:1-5) and true Christians will be thus hated by all nations as they preach the gospel of the Kingdom for a witness to all before the end comes! (Matt 24:9-14, Mk 13:13, Matt 10:22, Lk 21:17, Jn 17:14)

The Doctrine of Bethel's Leadership

It is fearful to behold how Bethel's leadership fearlessly distorts God's Holy Word, and through much subtily and craftiness deceive the minds of the simple from the plain and piercing truths of the Scriptures. The following table contrasts direct quotes taken in-context from personal blogs of Bethel's leadership and the sound teachings of Holy Scripture.

Kris Vallotton & Bill Johnson The Word of God
“If we listen to the devil, he will convince us that we are bad people who deserve punishment”

“And when (the Holy Spirit) is come, He will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment” (Jn. 16:8)

“...loving yourself is the key to a prosperous soul, which is the foundation for becoming wealthy and healthy in every area of your life.”

“In the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves…” (2 Tim 3:1-5)

“He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.” (Jn. 12:25)

“...think about the things that make your soul come alive and incorporate that into the rhythm of your life. For me this is working in my workshop/garage.”

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” (1 Jn. 2:15)

“The world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.” (Gal 6:14)

“He didn’t die to fix you, He just died because He loves you.”

“Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.” (Tit. 2:14)

“The only way you can sin is to know that what you’re doing is wrong and do it anyway.”

”And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the Lord; though he wist [knew] it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity. (Lev. 5:17)

“Those of us who know God are not in a war with our flesh”

“Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul” (1 Pe. 2:11)

A Sincere Plea

Dear friend, please carefully examine the burden of these men in light of the testimony of God’s Word concerning the Last Days by God’s holy Apostles and Prophets: THESE MEN ARE BOLDLY PROCLAIMING “peace and safety” to a generation ordained to a time of tribulation, such as never has been or ever will be! A time of God’s judgment through “Babylon” (Hab. 1:5-12, 1 Thess. 5:3)! They are prophesying prosperity, the very thing scripture says will be used by the antichrist to destroy many (Dan 8:25), when God testifies that He has determined His Bride to be made truly wealthy through the furnace of tribulation and poverty (Rev. 3:17-18, Jer. 30:12), for God has chosen His people in the furnace of affliction (Isa. 48:10)! Oh, how the Apostle Paul would lament over those snared by this fearful and wicked deception, which is causing men to despise the cross rather than glory in it, and to love this present world rather than to be crucified to it! (see Gal 6:14, 1Jn 2:15-17, 2 Tim 4:10)

Beloved reader, eternal life and paradise was lost when men rejected God’s commandment, (which is life everlasting! (Jn 12:50)), and desired to be like God, having their own will and wisdom about what was good and evil. Death was not manifested immediately in pestilence, plague, or leprosy breaking forth upon them, but it was the horrifying death of man’s sinless agreement with Life Himself, Jesus Christ! Mankind became radically depraved and deluded in their desires! Like a dehydrated man wandering in a desert supposing to find life by satisfying his thirst at the salt-water sea of self, men now thirst for death and know it not! They know not that it will be for their life! (Prov 14:12, 16:25, 8:36)

Now, the love of God moves Him to send forth His judgments upon that which men seek after as life! In mercy turning as it were the “sea of self” into a sea of blood that men would perceive, DEATH IS THERE! O, the love of God to destroy that which would destroy us! But, have your eyes been opened, dear soul? Have you come to agree with God that YOU are the problem? And that the death of your will and desires - through the cross of Christ - shall be the beginning of Eternal Life? Do you understand now why God would describe the last days as perilous with these words, “Men shall be lovers of their own selves” (2 Tim 3:1-2)?

“He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.” (Jn. 12:25)

These men claim to do signs and wonders in the name of Jesus, and preach the healing of the soul by “loving yourself” and “self-esteem,” but this is the very broken cistern Christ warned would leave men in bondage! These men promise you liberty but they themselves are the servants of corruption! That is why Bethel’s ministries have such things as a $200 lifetime membership to their purity groups because, statedly, “you’re never going to be free” (Bethel Men’s Purity leaders)! Jesus said, “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (Jn. 8:36). Are you free indeed? Has Jesus made you free from your sin through the power of the cross? Or are these men making merchandise of you, leaving you dead in your sins, troubled by devils, and with a defiled conscience? You may say, “But that is not my new nature! That is not who I really am!” but the Bible says, “Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous” (1 Jn. 3:7). A tree is known by its fruit! Examine yourself, reader! Is the confession of your life, “I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing”? The resurrected Christ says, “knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked” (Rev. 3:17)? If it pleased God to bruise His Wellbeloved Son when He made Him an offering for sin (Isa. 53:10), how much more shall He be pleased to destroy those that work iniquity (Mat. 7:21-23)?
