Here is a given definition for this Word of Faith theology:

Teachers and ministers in the Word of Faith movement promote an attractive but deceptive concept labeled by some as the Prosperity Gospel.’ This idea insists that the death and resurrection of Jesus does not just provide eternal salvation. Those who adhere to this false Biblical concept lay claim that God’s word promises Christians good health and unlimited wealth. They believe that if a Christians becomes sick or poor it is because they lack the knowledge to ‘appropriate’ promises to themselves. The way to great health and prosperity, it is taught, is by their speaking or confessing their belief in what they feel are ironclad promises from God. This profession, according to Word of Faith teachings, binds God to fulfill his promise and puts him under the control of a human who speaks in faith.

Those who believe in this faith movement feel that prayer to God, which asks for something, is unnecessary. Adherents are taught never to end their petitions to God with ‘If it be your will, Father.’ Such a prayer, it is believed, shows not only a lack of faith but also a lack of studying the Bible enough to know all of God’s promises. Christians are encouraged to search the scriptures to discover what God’s “unconditional promises” are and to CONFESS VERBALLY that the blessings they want can now be theirs for the taking.

A typical saying those who adhere to the ‘word of faith’ teachings are supposed to memorize is “What I confess, I possess.” A related catch phrase used in the movement’s books is confession brings possession.” Some of those who are critical of the movement refer to the primary doctrine they believe as “name it and claim it.”http://www.biblestudy.org/beginner/definition-of-christian-terms/word-of-faith.html

This new way of thinking is also called “New Thought.” It is occult theology. There is nothing ‘Christian’ about it. Here is what the occult calls “The Law of Attraction.” Let’s take a look at how it compares to the Word of Faith theology.

There are 3 Steps to the Law of Attraction: Ask, Believe, and Receive

 (1) Asking and wishing- what are MY dreams, what are MY desires, what are MY needs, what do I want. “Open yourself up and dream” says this Law of Attraction. Create a “vision board”-
A vision board takes your thoughts and puts them in a physical form you can see all throughout the day. You can also meditate if you’re into that. Meditation for 5-10 minutes a day can really help unlock and increase your power.

What are the words that we constantly hear out of the mouths of the false prophets? Dreams, visions, desires, and wants. ME, MYSELF, and I which is the object of WITCHCRAFT!

And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Deuteronomy 13:2-3 (verses 1-5)

For in the multitude of dreams and many words [there are] also [divers] vanities: but fear thou God. Ecclesiastes 5:7

How long shall [this] be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, [they are] prophets of the deceit of their own heart; Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal. Jeremiah 23:26-27

For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that [be] in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed. Jeremiah 29:8

stay focused and ASK. Asking transforms the entire Wish process, and begins creation.

Yes, how interesting that a false prophet spoke the EXACT SAME WORDS to me to “stay focused.”  Let’s start ‘praying’ another way, he said to me.

(2) Believe- visualizing what you want. Your will, mind and emotions combined with your faith will create the desires of your heart.

…visualize how you would like things to be.  Afterwards, you allow yourself to feel the feeling of that belief being fulfilled. You want to have UNWAIVERING FAITH that  what you desire is coming to YOU. As you visualize this, you have a strong knowing that it is already on it’s way!

“Unwaivering faith” sounds like Christian terminology don’t you think? But this Law of Attraction (WORD OF FAITH theology) does not need God at all. Applying your will, mind, and emotions invites fallen angels (demons) to answer those selfish desires. The Lord God will not have any part of this.

Do we not see all these prosperity believers today eating, drinking and being merry saying the Lord is not coming?

But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for [him], and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not [himself], neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many [stripes]. Luke 12:45-47

And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. 1 John 5:14-15

According to the LORD’s WILL, NOT ‘OUR’ will, not ‘earthly’ things.

Living in faith and positive emotion will continue to allow what you desire to flow to you. Allow each day to be filled with hope, belief, strength and passion for what is to come – release doubt, worry and fear.

Three emotions needed for belief are

  • strength– keeping your thoughts, words, and actions aligned with your intentions,
  • trust,

If you feel that your beliefs will not attract your best life, you do not trust them, and they will not help attract what you seek, but something else.

  • and gratitude- remain steadfast in order to receive your abundance.

(3) Receive

When you begin the receiving process of the Law of Attraction, congratulate yourself and CELEBRATE! You deserve it! This excitement will help the manifestation process fully come to fruition, possibly even accelerate it and exceeding your expectation.

Continue to live in positive emotions and realize and reflect on the true power that you’ve always had within in you. You can achieve success like this in anything you apply these principals to.

Joyce Meyer, Rod Parsley, the Crouch family, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland and all the others all believe that they too “deserve it” all. This is the Power of Positive Thinking as was written about many years ago. The true power within oneself, writes this author. And so it is today that those who practice and believe this false Word of Faith doctrine now believe they are “gods.” Do you see yet where all of this is coming from and where it is going?

All of this “All About Me” stuff sounds just like Joel Osteen and all these Word of Faith-Prosperity con artists don’t you think? Isn’t this what most all professing Christians in these end times surround themselves with today?  False hope, false love, a false spirit, shallow, sweet inspirations that tickle the ears and make life cozy. These Word of Faither’s are mouthpieces for Satan.

How eerily Satan has MOCKED God! Now I ask you, WHERE is the difference between what those in the occult have practiced for centuries and what the professing Christian health and wealth theology believers are practicing?

What does it matter about WHO started this false theology? The fact still remains that it is not biblical at all. This ‘name it and claim it’ and ‘confession brings possession’ is witchcraft and the only thing it is doing is deceiving millions of lustful, greedy, self-serving people into believing they are saved while they are all headed for Hell. After reading about the Law of Attraction I am more convinced of that than ever.

This Word of Faith theology is nothing more than the Law of Attraction re-clothed with Biblical words to attract and appeal to professing Christian people’s lusts for the world and self.

Diving into this Word of Faith false doctrine will open a door for demon possession as I believe so many involved in this today have already become demon possessed (Romans 1:24-25). People are losing their conscience. People are becoming more selfish, abusive, possessive and are obsessed with having their own way and material things. They have become extremely arrogant, and have demoted the Lord God while raising themselves as some higher power than God. Satan has convinced people that they are “gods” and Kings and Queens to rule this earth. They believe they are above God and can call into existence anything they want. Listen to Justin’s sermon Dangerous Doctrines for clips of preachers teaching this false doctrine.

Only God can speak things into existence. That is not an ability that you and I have but the faith preachers, the new apostolic reformation, these people blur that line between God the Creator and us His created. They DEMOTE GOD to make him look more human than what He is and then in turn they deify man and they make us look a lot more like god than what we really are. -Justin Peters, Dangerous Doctrines-
