On tonight’s programme we look at many issues relating to New Testament prophecy which include:
1) Jack Van Impe’s recent claim to be called by the Holy Spirit to be God’s ‘final prophet’.
2) Matt Chandler’s unusual and dangerous illustration of what prophecy would look like in his view.
3) A quick review of the ‘Have the NT Charismatic Gifts Ceased? Dr. Michael Brown vs Dr. Theodore Zachariades’ debate.
What is the doctrine of Sola Scriptura? What was the authority in the Garden of Eden? Why did written revelation become necessary in God’s economy? Why should we no longer expect oral revelation from God as the infant Church in the wilderness once did? On tonight’s programme we look at comments made by Francis Turretin, a 17th century reformer, on the issue of written revelation from God versus that of oral revelation. Can they help us understand this issue better? Are Charismatic claims of ‘prophetic words’ from men like Michael Brown consistent and compatible with sola scriptura?
On tonight’s programme we review Michael Brown’s latest book which claims to be ‘a wake-up call to the Pentecostal-Charismatic Church’. Is it? How orthodox was ‘the Brownville Revival’? Who is Randy Clark, who endorsed and wrote the foreword for the book? Who was Smith Wigglesworth? Brown speaks highly of him as a great example to follow from Pentecostal church history. What is to blame for the error within the movement? Charismatic theology itself, or a poor understanding of the gifts the movement claims are still in operation?
On today’s programme we are joined by Justin Peters to discuss the Word of Faith Movement, Michael Brown, the NAR, Bill Johnson, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland and many other related issues. How dangerous is the Charismatic movement? Are men like Benny Hinn and Kenneth Copeland fringe or mainstream within the movement?
