Read Your Bible: The True Message of Life Is In It!

Jeff Spencer

This post by Jeff Spencer is from the “Quarterly Journal of The Irenaeus Foundation; Volume 3, Issue 1: Winter 1998 culled from This article details the errors of the Third Wave very well. 

For those of you new to this site, we use the term “Third Wave” as coined by the late C. Peter Wagner, the ‘Chairman’ of the self-appointed ‘Council of Foundational Apostles’, one of the architects of the new counterfeit revival movement.  The Third Wave movement covers all the linked movements of Word-Faith out of RHEMA, Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, The Vineyard, Rodney Howard-Browne, Randy Clark, Rick Joyner, the Kansas City Prophets, the Toronto “Blessing” churches  and many false teachers regularly featured on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, DayStar, Faith Channel,  Dunamis, Emmanuel, Dove and similar ‘Christian’ TV and radio stations.


If any so-called Christian tells you his faith is connected to Azusa Street or any personality from Azusa Street, Seymour, Parham, Branham, Kuhlman, Lake, Dowie or any other person, know that the person is worshipping fallen angels

Christians are followers of Christ. But Pentecostals and Charismatics, like all other occultists, are rivals of Christ. Are you a follower, or a rival, of the Lord Jesus Christ?  Rivals, being rebels against God, are blinded by sin, greed and the lust for money, power and self-esteem.

"Pray to yourself, because I'm in yourself and you are in myself.  We are one Spirit, saith the Lord", Kenneth Copeland, Believer's Voice of Victory, February, 1987, page .9
