“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily (secretly) shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” 2 Peter 2:1-3
You don’t really think Satan is going to be quiet when his “ministers” are exposed do you? Much is at stake and so the enemy will stir up “Christians” to level attacks against those who obey God by marking those who teach false doctrines and earnestly contend for the faith once given to the saints (Rom. 16:17-18; Jude 3-4). It is quite amazing how judgmental these people can be and how they condemn men for what they see as condemning. So in their misguided efforts, they do to that servant who is obediently exposing darkness what they are blaming him for doing. In this they are standing against the LORD who died to save and protect His sheep. There is a danger of losing out (Matt. 10:22; 24:10-13; 25:1-13; Lk. 8:13; 21:34-36). Aren’t we instructed to expose or bring to light darkness? (Eph. 5:11) Satan knows that if the light of the truth were to be shone into the hearts of the deluded, many would repent. Yet some are intoxicated with the greed-feeding, sin-justifying messages of their favorite deceivers and “love to have it so.” (2 Cor. 11:13-15; Jer. 5:30-31) These people will suffer the same severe eternal punishment of those they support instead of boycotting (Prov. 17:15; 24:24-26; Isa. 5:20-24; Rom. 1:32; 2 Pet. 2:1-6; 2 Jn. 10-11). They are enemies of Christ and agents of Satan (Matt. 6:24; 12:30).
“If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” 2 John 10-11
Helping a false teacher is a serious offense against a holy God. Grave consequences are attached. Those who do anything to defend or further the ministries of false prophets or a false teacher become equally guilty before a holy God (2 Chron. 19:2; Isa. 5:20-24, etc.). God will have no mercy upon false prophets if they choose not to repent before it is too late (Jer. 48:10; 2 Pet. 2-3; Jude; Rev. 18:4, etc.). And those who help them are accessories to the fact and will suffer the same judgment. – “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” 2 John 11
“Lay hands (ordain) suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure.” 1 Timothy 5:22
For your review: Here is some information you may not be aware of concerning the ministry of Marilyn Hickey. I pray you will review these things with a discerning heart.
MARILYN HICKEY QUOTE: “What do you need? Start creating it. Start speaking about it. Start speaking it into being. Speak to your billfold. Say, "You big, thick billfold full of money." Speak to your checkbook. Say, "You, checkbook, you. You've never been so prosperous since I owned you. You're just crammed full of money." Audio tape #186, "Claim Your Miracles." Side 2.
“Note: I watched Ms. Hickey teach this very principle via a TV station in Southern California. Ten minutes later she told her viewers that if we didn't send money, her program would have to be dropped from the station... Apparently, Ms. Hickey's teachings don't work.” http://www.apologeticsindex.org/h00.html#hickey
Marilyn Hickey: Fairy Godmother of the Word-faith Movement?
“As documented in the Christian Sentinel and in other publications, the Word-faith movement is an aberrant man-centered substitute for biblical Christianity that focuses prayer on the power of the tongue instead of on God. Thus word-faith followers "positively confess" material goods and even divine health as their rights as children of God. Being that it is usually associated with Pentecostals and charismatics, it is not a careful movement that uses the Bible as its final authority. Often subjective experience is placed on par with Scripture, which has led false teachers – even those denying some essentials of the Christian faith – into taking some of the reigns of leadership within the word-faith movement.”
