LANCE WALLNAU EXPOSED
By Kelly Gallagher
A new breed of false prophets has come on the scene. These slick-talking, intelligent people are increasingly difficult to discern. One of these false prophets, Lance Wallnau has a ministry called the "Lance Learning Group” which is growing in popularity with his books and CDs and as well as appearances on TBN and other media.
His 7 CD series, “The Seven Mountain Strategy”, is about the Christian world taking the seven mountains, or high places, of media, art, education, politics, finance and others.
His idea of the meaning of 666 in the Bible is that it is not an evil number but the number of invasions of hell by the church. For example, he says that D-Day occurred in Normandy, France, on the 6th hour of the 6th day in the 6th month. This is classic “Kingdom-Now” theology; that the church is going to take over the world and it’s kingdoms before the coming of Christ. He ignores all the scriptures which show this number is actually the number of the antichrist and a coming world leader who causes all to worship him and take his mark or they cannot buy or sell.
False prophets are of this world. They speak of the world, promote the world, and the world hears them. Lance talks of being put in a position to train world leaders and believes that the principles of the Bible are superior to the world’s ways. For instance, the president of an African country, formerly under Idi Amin, called for the pastors of the churches in his country to help with the AIDS crisis. Thirty-five percent of the nation has AIDS. The churches gave him advice that dropped the rate to five percent. Then the president asked if the churches could help the failed economy. They recommended that the 200 corrupt officials be fired and replaced with spiritual, honest men. This also is working.
Many similar stories are told of how governments in South America have allowed him to train judges, prisoners and other group’s biblical leadership principles and many of his students have also become born again Christians.
Kim Clement prophesies that a man will have a political career and a son named Caleb and both were going to be political leaders. The man dies of a heart attack and has a dream of seven mountains that rise from the sea. Jesus speaks that these seven mountains are seven world kingdoms. His wife commands him to come back to life. He becomes a state senator and they adopt a boy named Caleb. Bill Bright of Campus Crusades and Lauren Cunningham of Youth with a Mission met and God showed them that there were seven mountains and mind molders that, if taken, would also take the harvest of nations. Both had these similar visions at the same time. Family, church, education, government, media, arts, sports, entertainment, and business/finance, are these seven mountains.
According to Lance, we have focused on the church mountains and ignored the others. The Gospel of the Kingdom is the answer. The house of the Lord will be on the top of the mountains, quoting Isaiah. Heaven will be released on earth through the vehicle of these mountains, according to Lance.
The arts are the forte of the people of God and Lance sees Christians being the most creative people, like Michelangelo and others in times past. Lance says, “Your credibility is your success in these mountains. It creates a platform for people to know your credibility and they will listen to you theologically.”
Lance has appeared on the Elijah List ministries and hangs out with many false prophets such as Kim Clement. In his 7 CD series on mountains, Lance mentions a Kim Clement prophecy that Christians would be dealing in BILLIONS OF dollars. Encouraged by the prophecy, Kenneth Copeland repented of almost being embarrassed of his rich lifestyle.
Lance has also appeared in an interview with Sharnael Wolverton of Swiftfire ministries who is a dangerous, false prophetess. She has a spirit guide named “swift” given to her by false prophet Bob Jones. Here is a clear example of how birds of a feather are gathering together.
It is interesting that the only place in scripture where the term “seven mountains” is used refers to the Woman who Rides the Beast, the end-time, false church.
(Rev 17:9) And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
We see in the verses just before this that this woman is a religious system, a spiritual harlot and a spiritual revival of the Babylon-like religion that is the birthplace of all divination, astrology and occult arts. This woman has persecuted true Christians and even Old Testament saints since the dawn of time.
(Rev 17:4) And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
(Rev 17:5) And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
(Rev 17:6) And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
(Rev 17:7) And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
It is not a coincidence that many people who are promoting this idea of taking over the seven mountains of this world are into the prophetic ministry. This writer has seen the fruit of these ministries and the destruction and deception they bring. Like the Roman Catholic church, many of these prophetic ministries are replacing the written Word of God with visions, dreams and prophecies to guide them and are being led into false anointings, heresies and divination under the guise of Christian ministry. This writer believes that those under the influence of this type of ministry will be led to a reunion with Roman Catholicism and in persecution and killing of true Christians in the last days.
(John 16:2) They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
Lance, in a video on youtube.com, says Daniel and Joseph did not convert people but took over nations. According to Lance, we do not need to evangelize and make individual disciples. We are to disciple NATIONS. This is the Great Commission.
This is a perversion of the gospel! Jesus called us to win the lost, not to take over cultures. Jesus said that His kingdom was NOT of this world.
(John 18:36) Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
I would ask the question, then, when did Jesus’ kingdom change to become like this world? John wrote that true Christians are not to love this world. The fruit of this kind of teaching will be that believers will become worldly in their thinking and focus. Can you not see that spiritually they are joining the world harlot religious system that fornicates with the kings of the earth and enriches herself by doing so. The Roman Catholic church was utterly corrupted when she was in power over politics. Kings would stand outside in the snow for days hoping the Pope would restore them if they had done something to displease the Pope and were put under interdict or excommunication. These men and women who use false prophecies and scripture twisting to promote a “Kingdom-Now” mentality are really helping to build the coming kingdom of the anti-christ.
Walnau is tied in with other “false apostles” (Rev. 2:2) such as Chuck Pierce and C. Peter Wagner. This alone tells us who he is, according to Ezekiel 22:25-27. Chuck Pierce C. Peter Wagner
Okay, read this following quote from C. Peter Wagner, the head wolf of the “New Apostolic Reformation.”
“We all agree that the society to be transformed is not just one big conglomerate, but a unified whole that is made up of several vital pieces, each one of which must take its own path toward transformation.
These segments of society should be seen as apostolic spheres.”--C. Peter Wagner, The Church in the Workplace, (Regal, 2006), p. 112 [emphasis added].
Did you truly hear what Wagner was spouting here? Doesn’t the LORD Almighty know about the “pieces” of His creation and “society” and is He not in control of how things unfold? Ever notice how that these false apostles we were warned to beware of all have a plan for the world while they completely ignore the plan God has already given and the facts of how things are going to unfold in the last days? This is Luciferic arrogance they speak from.
Beware of the dominionists who issue forth false prophecies which do not include the NT apostolic message of “repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Acts 20:21) Go read this and watch was is missing http://herescope.blogspot.com/2007/06/dominion-at-first-it-may-seem-like.html
