2 Timothy 4:2-4: “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
Last week on ‘Protestant Revival’ we highlighted two of the inappropriate characters who will be “preaching” and leading “worship” at Causeway Coast Vineyard’s ‘Encounter More’ conference, which will run from Thursday, 23 to Saturday, 25 May.
They are Havilah Cunnington and Jeremy Riddle, representatives of that frankly frightening hotbed of charismatic deceit, Bethel Ministries, whose blasphemies you can get an idea of by clicking here.
We simply couldn’t go into enough detail in one post to outline all the heretical speakers who will be purporting to offer spiritual guidance to the poor attendees of Causeway Coast Vineyard, but we can reveal that more brazenly ecumenical and God-defying speakers and worship leaders will be held up and exalted by those in charge at Causeway Coast Vineyard Church.
They are Mike Pilavachi (pictured, top) and Beth and Andy Croft of Soul Survivor church and Pete Greig (pictured, below), who runs 24-7 Prayer.
Pete Greig, for any readers who aren’t aware, is an out and out compromiser with Rome and a leading figure in the ungodly charismatic excesses which, sadly, figure prominently in so much of professing Christendom.
Indeed, he is at the extreme end of this.
And that can be seen in the fact that he claims God told him that He, the Almighty God of heaven, the eternal, unchangeable God who cannot abide sin, was “quite enjoying” a group of young women dressed up for a night out on the town coming into a prayer room he was in charge of, turning the stereo up (why it was there in any event is a good question) and proceeding to prayer dance to a song by Swedish pop group ABBA.
They apparently put their own ‘religious’ words to one of ABBA’s seemingly well-known songs, Super Trouper.
This is a blasphemy, yet Pete Greig has the gall to claim, not only that it was an acceptable form of worship, but that it was given the seal of approval of God.
What an outrage!
Furthermore, Pete Greig has played an active role in helping the Roman Catholic Church lure more people in to its evil clutches.
Pete Greig addressed the diocesan assembly of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vienna in St Stephen’s Roman Catholic Cathedral in the Austrian capital.
Tweeting afterwards, Pete Greig said: “Truly wonderful time in Vienna addressing 1,700 bishops, nuns, priests, laity from every church in the Archdiocese. Extraordinary signs of renewal – ‘unthinkable 9 years ago’ says the Cardinal.”
So Pete Greig was rejoicing in helping and seeing an increase in the number of people coming under the pagan influence of Rome.
Not only that, the 24-7 Prayer organisation which he heads up is an indisputably ecumenical organisation.
And its leader in Ireland is none other than Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, lead pastor at the truly Christ-rejecting Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area.
That, in itself, says it all.
The Jesuit promoter that is Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson leads 24-7 Prayer Ireland and indeed had Pete Greig as a celebrity guest at Emmanuel Church’s ‘Tobar’ conference last year, showing the strong links between the pair.
As for Mike Pilavachi and his Soul Survivor church, this man is another confirmed ecumenist.
His Soul Survivor church hosts summer camps each year and every year since at least 2016 these camps have offered the Roman Catholic Mass, a grievous blasphemy against God.
The Roman Catholic catechism says this of the Mass: “Because it is the memorial of Christ’s Passover, the Eucharist is also a sacrifice. In the Eucharist Christ gives us the very body which he gave up for us on the cross, the very blood which he “poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.””
Rome claims they are making a sacrifice of Christ in the Mass, yet the Bible says this in Hebrews 10:11-12: “And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God”.
Christ made “one sacrifice for sins for ever”, yet Rome repeatedly claims to be offering a sacrifice of Christ, thus serving to totally reject and blaspheme this most precious and crucial tenet of Scripture.
But Mike Pilavachi, whether he practices the Mass personally or not, serves to do the same by facilitating this blasphemous sacrifice.
But he will be offered an enthusiastic welcome to Causeway Coast Vineyard Church next week.
Mike Pilavachi has also demonstrated his enthusiasm for fellowshipping with heretics by being pictured alongside the Archbishop (read, Arch-apostate) of Canterbury, Justin Welby and Bishop Michael Curry, the sodomy-supporting American heretic who impressed the gullible and fellow-apostates at last year’s Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The trio are pictured together, below.
They were all at the main celebration of the utterly ecumenical ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer initiative, founded by Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby and given the seal of approval of “that man of sin, and son of perdition”, the Pope,
‘Thy Kingdom Come’ has devotionals to Mary accompanying it and Mike Pilavachi was the main speaker at the event.
So the Pope and Causeway Coast Vineyard Church have something (plenty of things, most likely) in common – they both promote events headlined by Mike Pilavachi.
That is very instructive.
Having the approval of the Pope is certainly not something any of us should want.
John 15:18-19 says: “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”
The Pope is undoubtedly “of the world” and will “love his own”. That would include the likes of Mike Pilavachi.
So why would Causeway Coast Vineyard want such characters as Pete Greig and Mike Pilavachi at their conference?
Well, Causeway Coast Vineyard’s previous lead pastor, Alan Scott, infamously said he was “all in” with the Pope during a sermon at Causeway Coast Vineyard.
And one of its leading figures, Peter Lynas (pictured, below), who also heads up the allegedly Evangelical Alliance, has repeatedly aligned himself with ecumenists and Romanists.
While it is little surprise to see a supposedly God-exalting church promote and fellowship with those who bring dishonour to the cause of Christ, it is imperative those who are saved and endeavouring to follow Christ take a stand against such error and compromise.
Psalm 94:16: “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?”
God is asking the question and continues to ask it today – who will stand up, who will rise up for Him against those who act contrarily to His will?
Will we speak out against such falsehoods and their propagators? Or will we hold our peace?
Let us be bold and sound the alarm in this evil day and generation and refuse to sit by idly as such blasphemies are being committed in the name of Christ.
Joel 2:1: “Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain”.
