Jeremy Lopez’s Identity Network is another gathering place for false prophets/teachers to peddle the “signs and wonders” craze. These people are all about casting their visions and prophetic word as they seek to entice as many people as possible into follow their ministries. It only makes sense that they work together to promote each other’s ministries, books, etc. This is another example of how “signs and wonders” leaders use every means available to increase their influence within this movement.

Pretty good marketing infomercial here!

The prophecy:

I love how false prophet Jeremy Lopez just goes into “prophecy” mode as requested!

Endorsements from other false teachers/prophets

I love Jeremy Lopez’s passion to see the Body of Christ encouraged. He carries a dynamic word, is extremely accurate in his prophetic ministry and is a true refreshment to those whose lives he touches.Patricia King (source)

Identity Network is doing a great job of creating a hunger and thirst for the supernatural move of the Holy Spirit. Jeremy Lopez is one of the next generation prophetic voices that God clearly has his hand on! You will receive grounded teaching, inspiring prophetic activity and get to observe integrity at work. It is my honor to be a friend of this ministry. – James Goll, founder of Encounters Network (source)

False prophet James W. Goll

I’ve been blessed to minister alongside Jeremy Lopez. I love his passion. I love the word of God in him and I see the love that shines through him from the Father and Jesus Christ to the body. He encourages, he exhorts and he brings comfort with clarity with his prophetic gift. You will be greatly blessed by Jeremy Lopez. – Julie Meyer, International House of Prayer (source)

IHOP and the use of prophecy

In this book,The Power of the Prophetic Spirit, Jeremy Lopez bring to the readers his revelatory insight of the prophet’s ministry. Written with honesty and simplicity to help everyone to receive from this most needed ministry today. As the desire to know more about Prophets and their flow in the spirit – this book will be one of the great helps.” Roberts Liardon (source)

The one thing lacking within this movement is the clear Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel message is muddied by prophetic words, prophetic visions, signs, wonders, miracles, and the idea that God depends on these prophetic signs and wonders in order to get people’s attention. One steady theme seen within all these leaders’ ministries is their relentless marketing to promote themselves and to sell books, mp3’s, DVD’s etc.

Jeremiah 29:8-9 (New American Standard Bible)

8 “For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, ‘Do not let your prophets who are in your midst and your diviners deceive you, and do not listen to the dreams which they dream.

9 ‘For they prophesy falsely to you in My name; I have not sent them,’ declares the LORD.

Jesus used the media of His day to share the reality of the Kingdom with people, and He wants to empower you to do the same today!(source)

Did you know that God wants to use the media? Did you know that you can have a “media calling” from God? Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but what I see in the Bible concerning what God wants us to do is to spread the Gospel, stand for sound doctrine, obey God’s commandments, and rely only upon the Holy Spirit to draw mankind to repentance. While I agree that we should use modern methods to spread the good news about Jesus Christ, I disagree with depending on it as the tool that leads people to God. This is a classic example of a man-centered gospel that promotes the idea that somehow God needs us to help Him get His Word out and save people.

When we strip away all the talk about visions, angels worship (Colossians 2:18-19), miracles, and signs and wonders (2 Thessalonians 2:9-10) from this movement  just what are we left with? By removing all these extra declarations and signs, the gospel message that remains is confusing at best. What’s clear is that we are left with a group of leaders peddling (1 Timothy 6:10) their own visions and self-proclaimed prophetic word.

2 Timothy 3:1-8 (New American Standard Bible)

“Difficult Times Will Come”

1 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.

2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,

3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good,

4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,

5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.

6 For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses,

7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, rejected in regard to the faith.

God does want us to use our gifts and unique talents He gives us (1 Corinthians 12:1-31). There is nothing wrong with teaching people to use the gifts that God has given them. My disagreements are not with using our gifts and every tool available to spread the Gospel. My problem with this movement is its emphasis on these strange visions, false doctrines, man-centered gospel, and cult like leaders who use their status to elevate themselves to a position of a prophet.

You can learn more about your possible media calling here: God, the Media, and You! as you are being persuaded to attend New-Media Fest!

I wish the people following these false teachers/prophets would take the time to truly study the Bible instead of blindly following these leaders. Because of my belief in the power of the Holy Spirit and the effectiveness of prayer, I believe the Lord can deliver those who are being deceived by this movement (Mark 10:26-27). I ask each of you to join me and pray that God draws these false teachers/prophets to true repentance. I pray for those who are deceived by these servants of Satan and self.

2 Peter 2:1-3 (New International Version)

False Teachers and Their Destruction

1 But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3 In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.

International House of Prayer

IHOP portrays itself as Christ-centered and as a testimony to the power of God working in lives.

On May 7, 1999, the International House of Prayer Missions Base (IHOP–KC) was founded by Mike Bickle and twenty full-time “intercessory missionaries” who cried out to God in prayer with worship for thirteen hours each day. Four months later, on September 19, 1999, our prayer and worship expanded to the full 24/7 schedule. IHOP–KC is an evangelical missions organization that is committed to praying for the release of the fullness of God’s power and purpose as we actively win the lost, heal the sick, feed the poor, make disciples, and impact the seven spheres of society (family, education, government, economy, arts, media, and religion). Our vision is to work in relationship with the larger Body of Christ to serve the Great Commission, as we seek to walk out the two great commandments to love God and people.(source)

The truth is IHOP is just another man-centered movement based upon a system of false teachings which have been peddled for decades.

The Use of Prophecy

We Affirm that the Bible is the inerrant and sole objective source of direction and wisdom for the life of a believer. We believe in the operation of the prophetic ministry as a source of edification, exhortation, and comfort from the Lord (1 Cor. 14:3). We believe that the subjectivity of the prophetic ministry must be vigorously tested against the inspired and infallible Scriptures that God gave for doctrine, reproof, correction, and for instruction in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:16).

We Deny that subjective prophetic experiences are equal to the inspired Word of God. In other words, all personal prophecy must uphold and honor the Scripture.

Explanation: Simple prophecy is limited to edification, exhortation, and comfort (1 Cor. 14:3). It is to enrich our spiritual life, rather than give direction in the domestic areas of our life. Edification speaks of spiritually building or edifying someone’s spirit by confirming their destiny or God’s purpose for their life. The most common way to edify through simple prophecy is to give a Scripture that has been previously important to them. Exhortation includes calling people to persevere and not give up on their promises to God in hard times, and not give in to sin. Comfort speaks of making known God’s perspective in a great disappointment or setback in a person’s life by giving God’s perspective in telling them that God has a plan in their time of pressure.

We urge people to avoid giving others prophetic direction in the domestic areas of their life. This includes issues related to spousal designation, bearing children, changing jobs, moving, buying or selling (i.e. house), or leaving one church for another, etc. We may give godly counsel to one another in domestic areas without presenting it as a prophecy. Personal prophecies should be given with others as witnesses (we request that prophecies be recorded when possible). Some people have an over-reliance on dreams for direction in their domestic lives. God never intended to direct people mostly by dreams. Yes, God does use dreams to give some direction; however, dreams are not to be a substitute for gaining wisdom from Scripture. Some people rely on dreams for decisions because it absolves them from responsibility and lacking wisdom if the decision turns out to be wrong (Eccl. 5:3, 7).(source)

It’s evident when you research IHOP and it’s leaders that they do not obey their own statement of faith and beliefs.

False prophetess Julie Meyer’s piano prophecy!

1 Timothy 4:1-8 (NIV)
1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.
3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.
4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving,
5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.
6 If you point these things out to the brothers, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, brought up in the truths of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed.
7 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly.
8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 (NASB)
1 Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him,
2 that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come.
3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,
4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.
5 Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things?
6 And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed.
7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way.
8 Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming;
9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,
10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.
11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false,
12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.

Matthew 7:15-23 (NASB)
15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.
16 “You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?
17 “So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.
18 “A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.
19 “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20 “So then, you will know them by their fruits.
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.
22 “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’
23 “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’
