#0264sva – John Bevere: True or False?

According to his website, John Bevere, who is reported to have worked with Benny Hinn for a number of years, “delivers uncompromising truth through his award-winning curriculums and bestselling books, now in more than 60 languages, including The Bait of Satan, Drawing Near and Driven by Eternity. He is an international speaker and co-host of The Messenger TV program broadcast worldwide” (John co-hosts the program with his wife Lisa). He and his family attend New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO. pastored by Brady Boyd who took over after Ted Haggard was dismissed.
In his book The Fear of the Lord, Bevere calls Hosea 6:1-2 “ a prophetic Scripture describing God’s refinement of His church in preparation for His glory. He has torn but He will heal. A day with the Lord is a thousand years (2 Peter 3:8)”.
Come, let us return to the Lord; for He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us; and on the third day He will raise us up, that we may live in His sight.” [Hosea 6:1-2]
However even stretching one’s imagination to it’s limits does not result in any connection between these words of Hosea and “God’s refinement of His church in preparation for His glory”.
I can’t stress it enough! Please, Christians, study your Bible!
People will not believe this type of false teaching once they know what God’s Word really says. I know many of you reading this just love John Bevere and his wife, Lisa. You should judge a minister and ministry on sound doctrine. Judgment should never be about personality.
