If you thought the Bible was the most “important book of the hour” – you guessed wrong, at least according to the head of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) Ché Ahn, who said on his Facebook page that Jesus Christ appeared to his friend and fellow prophet James Goll and informed him that a book containing a series of essays from fellow NAR-ite heavy-hitters that he compiled is the most important book in the world, at least for now.
The book features essays by such “pillars of solid Biblical preaching” and “faithful exegetes” as Bill Johnson, James W. Goll, Lance Wallnau, John Arnott, Chuck Pierce, Cindy Jacobs, Heidi Baker, Lou Engle, C. Peter Wagner, and Jim Garlow. If you want the most extreme and excessive representations of the charismatic movement, short of John Crowder of “tokin’ the Holy Ghost and getting stoned in the spirit” fame, you found them.
The book contains essays like Bethel’s Bill Johnson waxing eloquent on “From Glory to Glory” and Lance Wallnau discussing “The 7 mountain mandate.” Each topic is addressed thoroughly and is “describes sensitively in Spirit-inspired chapters sure to stir your soul, ignite your calling, and fulfill your God-given destiny.”
Though Ché Ahn has done some good work in defying the government trying to shut his church down, his wild charismaticism and New Apostolic Reformation nonsense always shines through. In fact, it wasn’t that long ago that he declared that Micheal” knock em down” Brown was an “apostle” – a title which had him tickled pink and grinning like a fool for days on end.
Jesus never appeared to Goll, and the only thing he’d say about the book is to toss it in with the rest ala Acts 19 and count it among those worth fifty thousand drachmas.
