Kari Jobe – Another NAR Heretic
Wake up! The apostasy and lack of discernment is at an all time high! How can anyone who proclaims the name of Jesus Christ not recognize the dismal state of the professing church? Words cannot even begin to describe the how far away the church is from Christ in these days. The attractions, the concerts, the conferences, the fleshly entertainment tickling the ears of the heathen in false belief. People joining hands with those teaching for shameful gain things they ought not to teach. In the Charismatic Evangelical church, there is a movement known as the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). It is a movement that elevates experience above doctrinal truth. Contradictory beliefs about the basic tenets of Christianity come together in prayer and worship. This is surely not revival, but the falling away in it’s most deceptive and extreme form–a form of godliness that denies its power. THIS TIME IS NOW!
2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Please see some simple facts below to know if she is truly of God and obedient to Him or to be avoided in line with Romans 16:17:
Rom 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
Rom 16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
She is titled as an associate pastor at Gateway Church in Texas.
(God’s Word in 1 Timothy 2 shows us that is very unbiblical and is not obedient to God’s Word)!!
1 Timothy 3:1 This is a true saying, If a MAN desire the office of a bishop(OVERSEER, PASTOR, ET. ALL), HE desireth a good work.
3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the HUSBAND OF ONE WIFE, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
3:5 (For if a MAN know not how to rule his own house, how shall HE take care of the church of God?)
1 Timothy 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
2:10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
2:11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
2:14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
Their body ‘Gateway Church’ is a very unbiblical seeker friendly mega sized and compromised religious body in various ways. They are NOT a true New Testament biblical body as modeled by the first century saints as these places put on shows of and for man.
At Gateway they have on their website:
“Over the past 10 years, Gateway Worship has evolved in their powerful expression of worship, as they passionately pursue a journey of discovery and understanding of the power of a unified response to God’s presence and love for His people.”
There is a video on the internet with Kari talking about how she grew up in prophetic ministry and how she hears “God’s voice”. See Rev 22
Hebrews 1 tells us: In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.
The Bible is what we should be following fully and obediently, not what we think is God’s voice as we can be deceived easily. Jesus warned of much deception in the last days (See Matthew 24). Yes we have a conscience and are now walking in the spirit but these things she is speaking about is “false fire”, false “signs and wonders”.
Mar 13:21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
Mar 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
Mar 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
Kari is one of the performers at the Lovely Woman’s Conference at Bill Johnson’s Bethel organization.
(Johnson has a demonic organization that is not modeling the true New Testament church Christ established. He has one of the most demon possessed churches out there! He is into extra biblical revelation, many signs and wonders, the dangerous NAR group. They are a cult with strange manifestations going on there like glory clouds, gold dust falling down, people convulsing and rolling on the ground which is NOT of God at all.)
Kari is one of the participants at the Women of Faith conference in Houston, Texas with Beth “the heretic” Moore and others. (Beth Moore is a godless mystic and is “teaching” various unbiblical ways and linking herself to unbiblical cults like; roman catholics) Moore is also not obedient to God’s Word in her dress. (1 Timothy 2 and 1 Corinthians 11)
Kari performed at the Passion conference in 2013 originated by Louie Giglio, another heretic.
Lou is a modern pastor at a large seeker body that is NOT biblical and it is not modeled after the first century church Christ ordained. He is into various strange associations like uniting with roman catholic’s and contemplative prayer.
Kari sings, writes and sells “instrumental emotional music” that is NOT part of God’s plan for His true New Testament church.
She is not obedient to God’s Word in her dress. (1 Timothy 2 and 1 Corinthians 11) She also (as we have shown) is united with many unbiblical people and error filled ways so we lovingly warn others to avoid her.
I pray she repents, changes her ways and seeks all biblical truth and not man made false religion. So few will…
(From various websites)… Kari Jobe is a popular musician being promoted in churches, especially to our youth. Jobe, out of seeker-sensitive NAR Robert Morris’ Gateway church, is known for popular songs like I Am Not Alone, and Love Came Down. She is also under the leadership of Gateway’s NAR Apostle and elder, Jack Hayford, author of the song Majesty, which teaches the heretical “Kingdom Now” theology. However, she is one of those who are teaching for shameful gain things she ought not to teach (Titus 1:11).
One of her most popular songs, Forever, published by Bethel Music (the same outfit that produced the wicked “Jesus Culture”), contains some really aberrant theology. Besides the fact that she’s a female “pastor” in a church, her theology alone should be enough to disqualify her as a teacher. Below is a sample of her lyrics:
One final breath He gave
As heaven looked away
The Son of God was laid in darkness
A battle in the grave
The war on death was waged
The power of hell forever broken
Then, In an interview about her song, Forever, she said,
My favorite part of the whole thing is … we talk about the death on the cross and we talk about the resurrection,but that time in between was when Jesus was in hell rendering hell. And ransacking hell. And defeating the enemy – taking those keys to death and hell and the grave to be victorious over that when he rose from the dead.
Of course, we can pick apart almost any song, even some of the best traditional hymns. But the serious error here is that she is teaching a heresy that strikes at the heart of Christian theology, which is the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. She gets a pass, though, you know, because “artistic license and stuff.”
This idea that Jesus died and went to Hell stems from an old heresy that is prominent in Word of Faith circles that teach that Jesus died spiritually, and was “born again” after defeating Satan in Hell. Popular teachers of this false teaching are Joyce Meyer, Kenneth Copeland, and Creflo Dollar. Joyce Meyer writes in her book, The Most Important Decision You’ll Ever Make, the following:
“Jesus paid on the cross and went to hell in my place. Then as God had promised, on the third day Jesus rose from the dead. The scene in the spirit realm went something like this: God rose up from his throne and said to demon powers tormenting the sinless son of God, “let him go.” Then the resurrection power of Almighty God went through hell and filled Jesus. On earth his grave where they had buried him was filled with light as the power of God filled his body. He was resurrected from the dead–the first born again man.” (source)
And Kenneth Copeland similarly writes:
“For three days He suffered everything there is to suffer. Some people don’t want to believe that. They want to believe that after His death, Jesus just stayed in that upper region of Sheol that the Bible calls paradise, but they’re mistaken! If He had simply stayed there, there would have been no price paid for sin.”
This flies right in the face of biblical truth that Christ’s death on the cross was victorious over sin. Jesus proclaimed victory in his final breath on the cross (John 19:28-30). Jesus had no need to go to Hell to finish any work, and he certainly did not die spiritually (John 17:4, Acts 2:31, Col 2:14, etc.).
But if denying the power of the cross isn’t enough to turn your head away from Kari Jobe’s music, perhaps her treatment of Jesus would be enough to make your stomach turn. Another popular song, The More I Seek You, she treats Jesus more like a lover than a savior.
The more I seek you,
The more I find you
The more I find you, the more I love you
I wanna sit at your feet
Drink from the cup in your hand.
Lay back against you and breathe, feel your heart beat
This love is so deep, it’s more than I can stand.
I melt in your peace, it’s overwhelming
Besides the theology in this song just being plain horrible, she displays a total lack of understanding of God’s love for us. God’s love for us is not an erotic (Greek: eros) love, but agape.Agape is a parental, sacrificial, agape love as long as we constantly obey and ABIBE in HIM, whereas eros is a bodily, emotional kind of love. The lyrics in this song pervert the nature of God’s love.
I don’t see how anyone could worship Jesus to music like this, yet the eroticizing of God’s love for us is gaining steam. Hillsong’s Forever Reign is another popular song in evangelical churches that does this, while Ann Voskamp, a popular women’s bible study writer, and author, pushes the same foolishness in her book, 1000 Gifts. Voskamp writes, “I fly to Paris and discover how to make love to God.”
One of the Hallmarks of NAR worship is to use repetitive phrases and rhythmic cadences to draw people into a trance-like state, believing that by doing so, you can have intimacy with God. In reality, what it does is cause people to zone out, and not really think about what they are saying. Being under the influence of NAR Apostle, Jack Hayford, who has been instrumental in transforming the worship music scene, it comes as no surprise that her music incorporates this tactic. Jack Hayford claims direct, divine revelation from God, and says that while driving by a Catholic church, God directly told him not to judge them. He says God directly said to him,
“Why would I not be happy with a place [Catholic Church] where every morning the testimony of the blood of my Son is raised from the altar?”
Being that the Catholic Church worships a false Jesus, you can rest assured that Hayford did not hear that from God. Yet, this is a man influencing Kari Jobe, and many other modern worship music artists. You can read more about the catholic cult here and here.
All of this and more is what the evangelical church is feeding its sheep. Wolves, snake oil salesmen, bad theology…and nobody bats an eye. Children are being sent off to church camps and “Christian” concerts to be fed goat’s milk through worship. Sadly, many truly love Jesus, and desire to worship him rightly, but have no idea that their music is leading them down a path of destruction. Music is tearing down doctrinal lines and creating unholy alliances at a faster pace than once thought possible. No longer do Evangelicals, Catholics, and other professing Christians have to stand against each other over “matters of secondary importance…like the Bible,” we can now unite around our new idol of worship music.
