 This new and dangerous fad is being practiced in Charismatic churches, including Bethel Church in Redding, CA (Bill Johnson). Todd White has also been linked to this. This is a mixing of the occult and Christianity and needs to be exposed. This article was published and the videos were quickly deleted from Youtube.

ACTS 16:16-"It happened that as we were going to the place of prayer, a slave-girl having a spirit of divination met us, who was bringing her masters much profit by fortune-telling."
ACTS 8:9-11-"
But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.

 Bethel Church “Knights” Their Graduates? 
What is that About? Part 1

Church Watch Central writes:
Can we assume that when students graduate from Bethel School of the Supernatural, they are… knighted? In 2010 many were knighted by Kris Vallotton and Bill Johnson. If anyone can email us to explain why actual swords are involved, what this means and what is said in this spiritual rite, it would be greatly appreciated.
Often cults will perform such rites to indicate who has the higher spiritual authority. This is because they wish to highlight this authority with word, deed and spiritual impartation/suggestion.
The person highlighted in this particular knighting ceremony, (as it called by the author of the screen grabs below), is Ben Fitzgerald, who later became a Bethel Pastor and teacher in Bethel’s School of the Supernatural.
GOD TV, Bethel, Lifestyle Christianity & IAHM endorsing demonic ‘grave-sucking’.
Here are the images where Ben Fitzgerald was ‘knighted’ by Bill Johnson and Kris Vallotton:

What’s this knighting thing about? Sorry to click-bait you with the title. We’ll answer that in Part II (“Part I” is just a re-post from ChurchWatch).
But, yeah. It’s as weird as you might suspect.
 “Knighting” in the New Apostolic Reformation Part II
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
We recently posted an article from Church Watch Central about the Bethel Church “knighting ceremony” for Ben Fitzgerald, who is a missionary for Bethel and whose parents run the Christian ‘Tarot’ card New Age ministry, Christalignment, which Bethel first repudiated but then – when finding out it was their associates doing it – deleted their rebuke and affirmed them. In that post, we provided photographic evidence of Ben Fitzgerald being knighted with what appeared to be an actual sword. You can find that post here.

We promised Part 2, which would explain the possible origins of this bizarre rite in the New Apostolic Reformation. Here’s the explanation. It seems affirmed by Ben Fitzgerald himself on the Pulpit & Pen Facebook thread.

Don Fizell said, “This is a commissioning ceremony where graduates are being released into the service of Joel’s Army. The ceremony is very similar to what is seen in the Kights of Malta initiation. Rick Joyner is in the Knights of Malta.”
While we plan on exposing the NAR connections to the Roman Catholic Knights of Malta (the commenter, Fizell, is correct by the way), but what was telling, was Ben Fitzgerald’s seemingly affirming comment. He responded, “Wow wonderful picture, thanks for the reminder. What an amazing day that was”.
What is Joel’s Army? Joel’s Army – named after Joel 2:1-2, with extensive modern historical roots the details of which are beyond the scope of this series, is in its current iteration a movement that combines the Latter Rain Movement and charismatic Dominionism. This chapter is the brainchild of Todd Bentley, but has been continued by New Apostolic Reformation “apostles” since his fall into the disgrace of adultery and alcoholism. The Latter Rain Movement was the Second (and most dangerous) Wave of the Charismatic Movement, which believed that the faux-signs and wonders claimed by charismatic prophets were the “latter rain” as spoken of in the Messianic prophecy of Joel 2 (which is cited in Acts 2 by Peter, as fulfilled at Pentecost).
“Be glad, O children of Zion,
    and rejoice in the Lord your God,
for he has given the early rain for your vindication;
 he has poured down for you abundant rain,
    the early and the latter rain, as before.
Continuing his prophecy, Joel gets to the part cited by Peter at Pentecost…
28 “And it shall come to pass afterward,
    that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh;
your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
    your old men shall dream dreams,
    and your young men shall see visions.
29 Even on the male and female servants
in those days I will pour out my Spirit.
Peter says that the pouring out of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost is the fulfillment of Joel 2, which includes the “latter rain” metaphor in verse 23 and 24. Israel had two rainy seasons, the early and latter rains. In the Holy Spirit’s metaphor through Joel, the earlier rain was the prophecy given by the prophets of the Old Testament, and the latter rain was the prophecy poured out upon the New Testament apostles and prophets.
In the charismatic “Latter Rain” view, however, the earlier rain is that which was poured out upon the New Testament Apostles and prophets, and the latter rain is that which is being poured out now. From this idea has come the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), which is a movement that purports to be a return of the Apostles and with it, Apostolic Authority.
Combined in the milieu of the New Apostolic Reformation and the Latter Rain Movement is charismatic Dominionism. A theology that is functionally post-millennial and was created by a 1987 meeting that sought a bridge between Calvinist Reconstructionism with Charismaticism, and involved Joseph Morecraft and Gary North (source link). Adding a functional post-millennialism to the fires of charismaticism gave them the Seven Mountain Mandate, which claims that God desires that Christians “redeem” the seven aspects of culture including education, religion, family, business, government, arts, and media.
The spearhead for this dominionist takeover was the idea of Todd Bentley, set forth during the heyday of the Lakeland Revival. Bentley taught that the locusts of the Book of Joel represent charismatic prophets leaving mainstream Pentecostal denominations and following after the radicalized leaders of what would become the NAR (in Joel, the locusts actually represent God’s judgment and are a bad thing). So then, Joel’s Army was born at the doomed and debauched Lakeland Revival.
The theological framework for Joel’s Army being representative of charismatic prophets is really, really bad. It’s so bad in fact that IHOP rejects it. They write on their website
We affirm that the army in Joel 2:1–11 was an ungodly Babylonian army that destroyed Jerusalem in 586 BC. We believe that this passage has a double fulfillment in that it also points to the Antichrist’s army that will attack Israel at the end of the age. We affirm that Joel was prophesying about the lifestyle of godly believers in Joel 2:12–17. We deny that Joel 2:1–11 describes the end-time Church.
This rejection from IHOP comes after the destruction of the Lakeland Revival and not before, and is probably a reaction to Bentley’s dramatic implosion. Other NAR Apostles who laid hands on Bentley and have since restored him – like Rick Joyner – are still operating according to this disastrous Joel’s Army theology.
Bentley began the effort with Fresh Fire Ministries of Canada and even handed out dog tags to express the movement’s militancy. Today, this movement is continued among the group known as the New Apostolic Reformation. Those figures include Ken and Gloria Copeland, Todd Bentley (he’s still preaching), Patricia King, Jennifer LeClaire (formerly Charisma Magazine), Beni Johnson, Cindy Jacobs, Rick Joyner, Amanda Wells, Rod Parsley, Bill and Jen Johnson, Kris Valloton, and Heidi Baker.
Sadly, Bethel and NAR are very secretive, and they won’t come out and explicitly say what the weird knighting ceremony is about or how it’s remotely scriptural. So, this leaves us to speculation.
In Part III, we’ll discuss an equally as likely reason for the knighting (but perhaps even more concerning), the Knights of Malta.

 Christalignment at Rainbow Serpent 2016
 An amazing time in our market stall tent where the team were able to do readings and dream interpretations over approx 600 people. Days were long, filled with very interesting sites, magnificent fresh pizzas and highly accurate readings. The Christalignment team saw instant physical healings, addictions broken and freedom released in the lives of many spiritual seekers. We will definitely be there next year!! 

 Charismatics Now Using “Christian” Tarot Cards
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
 Called “Destiny Reading Cards,” charismatics – some associated with Bethel 
Church in Redding, California – are engaging in what is essentially tarot card 
reading. You can see the clip below, and then we’ll explain.
They call it a “reading” and refer to the program as “Christalignment.” They don’t do “predictions,” but they will help empower your destiny rather than control it. Using what is essentially tarot cards, they do a “reading” about relations, jobs and issues to help people “make better decisions in the future.”
The tarot is a pack of playing cards made originally in the 1400s in Italy and France, which are meant to help a psychic “divine” truth either about the future or a present situation (some assume the name is taken from the Taro river in Italy). Explicitly occultic tarots include a 78 card pack (as opposed to all the other kinds of tarot, which are implicitly occultic). The charismatics at Bethel Church and elsewhere have commandeered this satanic practice and seek to help people gain insight into their life from these “readings.” Here’s another clip, below.

Mind, Body and Spirit” is a group put together by fans (left) of Bethel Redding, and includes various partners, including the parents of Bethel missionary, Ben Fitzgerald. Students from Bethel Church in Redding were helping with their “readings.”
Jenny and Ken Hodge are hosting an event, “Taking Jesus into Counter Cultures” on March 10. They have modeled the practice of “taking Jesus into counter cultures” by doing their Christianized tarot cards at events like porn expos.
You can see on their public Facebook page their closeness with Bethel Church in Redding. You can see on their December 7 post their advertising of Christalignment (the top video) at an upcoming event.
You can see another “reading” by the woman below.
This reading does not involve tarot cards, however, but different colored agates.

It couldn’t get any weirder in charismania. Until tomorrow. Tomorrow it will be even weirder.

 Pope Bartholomew, the Archbishop of Constantinople and leader of the idolatrous cult of Eastern Orthodoxy.
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
When 21 Egyptians were beheaded by ISIS, we reminded American evangelical leaders that while their deaths should be mourned, Coptic believers are not Christians. They are, in fact, Eastern Orthodox idolaters who are even further removed from authentic Christianity than Roman Catholics. Rod Dreher, who for some unknown reason has been embraced by evangelicals like Albert Mohler, took great exception with our post and we took a lot of heat for pointing out the obviousness of basic Protestantism; there is not salvation outside of belief in Sola Fide.
Last week, we brought to you news that the Roman Catholic Bishop of Rome was unhappy that President Donald J. Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital city of Jerusalem. This week, idolaters of the Eastern variety demonstrated that they are equally unpleased.
The Coptic Orthodox Church (which is the Eastern Orthodox church of Egypt) announced that it would not meet with Vice President Mike Pence out of protest that Trump made the move to recognize what is essentially a Biblical position on the Israeli city. A spokesman for those idolaters said that Trump’s move to recognize Jerusalem was, “inappropriate and without consideration for the feelings of millions of people.”
Given that Egypt has millennia-old hostilities to Jews and formerly enslaved them for four hundred years, ending in about 1500 B.C., and given that Egypt spearheaded the 6 Day War and the doomed assault against the nation of Israel, it probably should not come as a surprise that its “Christian” citizens are as anti-Semitic as its Muslim citizens. Clearly, there’s some bad blood since the time Pharaoh ordered the Egyptian midwives to murder Hebrew babies. They appear to not have yet let go of the grudge.
Maybe that’s an oversimplification. Nonetheless, the Coptic Church is not happy.
News agencies report, “The Coptic Pope’s refusal to host Pence is largely symbolic but significant, because it demonstrates the Arab solidarity for Palestinians irrespective of religious affiliations.” It followed the lead of Islamic cleric, Ahmed al-Tayeb’s decision to meet with Pence. It seems Islam’s leaders in Egypt are leading the Eastern Orthodox on a leash.
Ironically, the Eastern Orthodox have argued for centuries over the proper seat of the Christian Church, they’re arguing for Instanbul (formerly, Constantinople) and their idolatry counterparts in the West are arguing for Rome. One would think that the Eastern Orthodox church would understand the importance of recognizing the historical significance of a “holy city.”

Now that President Trump has shown that he will not submit to intimidation over Jerusalem, Islamic supremacists are trying a new tactic to bring him to heel: intimidation.

“Christmas Is Canceled: Nazareth’s Muslim Mayor Bans Traditional Christmas Celebrations in Christ’s Childhood Home,” by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, December 16, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
The Muslim mayor of Nazareth has cancelled traditional outdoor songs and plays celebrating Christmas in the city where Jesus spent his childhood.
Mayor Ali Salam, who once made the curious boast that U.S. President Donald Trump “learned everything from me” about how to win elections, indicated that he was punishing local and visiting Christians as revenge for the President’s decision to officially recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
“Our message is we love Jerusalem, we’ll never abandon you under any circumstances,” Salam declared.
“Our identity and faith aren’t up for debate … The decision [by Donald Trump about Jerusalem] has taken away the joy of the holiday, and we will thus cancel the festivities this year.”
While Nazareth is located within Israel proper rather than Palestinian Authority territory in Gaza and the West Bank, a majority of its inhabitants are Arabs with Israeli citizenship.
At a little over 30 per cent of the population, Christians are a significant minority — but are dominated by the Muslim majority which voted Salam into power.
Nevertheless, the local administration has already walked back his aggressive position somewhat, conceding “there are commercial interests of the city and we are used to hundreds of thousands [of Christians] coming for this season.”
Some elements of the traditional celebrations will therefore go ahead, such as the Christmas market and a parade on December 23rd — but the singing performances and outdoor plays which usually mark the season will be prohibited.
According to the Bible, the city of Nazareth is where the archangel Gabriel told the Virgin Mary she would bear the Saviour, making it one Christianity’s holiest sites….

 Nazareth Mayor cancels Christmas
 Trumps decision to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel's capital is proven to be the correct move by Nazareth's Mayor Ali Salam, Mayor Ali Salam has cancelled city sponsored Christmas celebrations in Nazareth. the excuse being President Trumps acknowledgment that Jerusalem is Israel's capital city . Already previously a capital city for the Jewish people, and now again since the re-establishment of Israel, That Israel has freedom of religion and respect for all faiths, further qualifies Israel to have dominion over Jerusalem, where all faiths free of persecution, have access to their holy sites under Israeli control. Already the Jewish people have experienced total denial of access to their holy places,when East Jerusalem was under Arab control between 1948 and 1967, a point often overlooked in that Jordan allowed only very limited access to Christian holy sites, and restrictions were imposed on the Christian population that led many to leave the city.(Wikipedia). This intolerance towards other faiths is still apparent today, highlighted by Nazareth's Mayor Ali Salam and a city who cancelled Christmas where Jesus spent his childhood. elsewhere such as Bethlehem, once a majority 60% population of Christians now only 20% When the Palestinian leadership speak of unity with their Christian brothers against the false claim of Jewish oppression, who, with even just a small amount of rational thought, can not see the deception ?
