The Grey Coats challenge…

Here is my challenge to all our prophetic following brethren.

There are 3 books I want you to read.

1. Is Counterfeit Revival by Hank  Hanegraaff

2. Is the book of Jeremiah.

3. Is Charismatic Chaos by John MacArthur

This is not heavy reading in any way shape or form but over the years I have been surprised with just how much our critics don’t know about the roots of their movement or the Bible itself.

I am asking you folks to take the challenge. Many of you won’t, but all of you should.

If the prophetic movement is true then it should be able to hold up against a few sound arguments here and there. We have read the books your teachers have written, we have heard your arguments for quite a while. Now, I am asking you to do the same. Take the Challenge. You might just come to some new conclusions. You might . Ya never know.

  1. If anyone takes you up on this challenge Jarrod I will be heartily (and actually happily) surprised. Most people run from self-examination (especially Charismatics I’ve found) like vampires from light.

    To everyone,

    It feels good to be back with ole WordPress. We’ve had a rough patch and now I think we’re rebounding. If you are having a rough patch with your Charismatic experience specifically then I wholeheartedly recommend reading the 3 books that my compatriot lists in this post. I actually picked one up the other day (the McArthur one) for $1.50 in a discount bookbin. And Jeremiah, well….you really should have a Bible….and he was a PROPHET which should spark a little bit of extra interest right?

    But, honestly, to be minimally versed in the history of your own religious movement is just an act of intellectual integrity. You owe it to yourself.

    The classic Blue Coats / Grey Coats discussion emerges again. In the so-called “prophetic church” a “Blue Coat” is one who walks by feelings (the Spirit) is a Blue Coat and one who walks by reason (the Word) is a “Grey Coat.” It evokes imagagery of the War between the States, and indeed is the gist of the classic Jones & Joyner prophecies about the “Civil War in the Church

    Mike Bickle is promoting a “prophetic dream” given to him on February 13, 2009. Obviously, the point of the dream is that we can’t discuss it (so we must accept it) – sort of a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    Bickle states that “IHOP is simply too immature to give time to theoretical debates. In this dream, the Lord was warning me to set my face toward Him and His Word and to refuse the temptation to invest time in seeking to look wise to others. What is coming is so much more intense than we imagine. Those with the most insight do not understand the intensity of the events in Rev. 12:7-12.”

    “The point of the dream: I and the IHOP leadership are not mature enough in our understanding to entertain debates and casual arguments that will arise much more in the Church in the future.”

    Well, at least he has admitted that there is no doctrinal foundation to his beliefs. I guess we will have to take his word on that.
