Joseph Bencs True Church and false church Joseph & Rita Bencs Ministries © 1 http://jbencs.blogspot.com Nowadays in the Church the quickly growing phenomena we face globally come from satanic sources. We can already describe a part of these phenomena. To understand the reasons for their emergence and strengthening and to take up the fight against them succesfully, we need a theological system and theological concepts. In this study we would like to review the reasons, introduce some new concepts and lay down the basis. Our unconcealed goal is to get the readers to commit themselves and come to a decision that influences their lives. The Joseph & Rita Bencs Ministries commits itself to apologetics, the protection of true faith. We consider it our obligation and mission coming from God to take part in the apologetic services and in the development of the apologetical theology. Why? We experience worldwide that the present-day apologetics is not suited for answering today’s challenges. If you read apologetic literature such as books and studies or if you listen to such preachings, you can see that most of them is about how to differentiate Christianity from false religions. For example what’s the difference between Christianity and Islam, Buddhism, mormons or Jehova’s witnesses? The focus of today’s apologetics is how to differenciate Christianity from other religions, other directions. This is what today’s apoligetics, apologetic literature and apologetic theology is suited for. The current apologetical literature and the related theology is suited for that and only that. Glory to Jesus Christ that He used many people worldwide in order for the apologetical theology and such organizations and literature to come into existence, for such books to be written. However, it’s clear that God started to teach the Church worldwide about the invisible world, He started to give revelations about the spiritual world. He started to restore the apostolic and prophetic ministries. He started to give people heavenly experiences. Many people had visions, prophetic experiences, they met Jesus Christ and angels in Heaven. But it’s also easy to see that whatever God restores, that devil copies on the satanic side. We have to declare that there are false apostles, false prophets and false prophetic experiences. There are heavenly experiences that are clearly false and there are visions and prophetic experiences that are clearly false. There are cases when people meet not good but evil angels in the spiritual world. The point is: what God makes in the Church, the devil copies on the satanic side. That’s why we think it’s very-very important to see the difference! We consider it our task and mission to teach the Church about the invisible world. We can prepare the Church by sharing information about the differentiation and the necessity and methods of the differentiation. Every sign shows that we need reformation, revival on the apologetic area. We need to consolidate revelations, teachings, understanding, theology and the basics of the differentiation into apologetics. That’s why it is very important to talk about how certain things work in the invisible world. It’s important for all the information about the invisible world to be in one apologetic frame. It’s very important for the teachings to be linked up closely and on more threads to the apologetics. This is very important because our eternal life, our salvation depends on it. We will see that if he can, satan will disorientate the chosen ones too, God’s people who were chosen by Him to get to Heaven. Devil tries to disorientate even these people. It’s vitally important to know the difference in this area! Now let’s cut to the chase! In the invisible world there is a True Church and a false church. In the next steps we will see and demonstrate by God’s Word the existing of the two churches. After that we will analyse how the false church operates. What is it that the devil copies and how he uses these copied things as a base

Joseph Bencs True Church and false church Joseph & Rita Bencs Ministries © 2 http://jbencs.blogspot.com that he builds the fake church onto. At the end we will give you a criterion system to help you recognize and differentiate the True Church from the false church. God started to reveal this topic in 2012. He asked us to listen to Derek Prince’s teaching about the True Church and the false church again. Derek Prince says that the True Church is the one that is efficient on the level of the invisible world because it works in the spiritual world. The false church is the one that remains on the level of the psyche; the emotions, the will and the thoughts. We can use a metaphor as well: the True Church is like a reborn Christian who has a close reationship with God’s Word and the Holy Spirit. The false church is like a religious man who attends some religious congregation but never got converted and only has a religion. For a long time I’ve thought that that’s the way it is, that’s how it works. However, by His Word, God drew my attention to the fact that me and Derek Prince were both wrong. The truth is that both churches are built on the level of the invisible world. So the false church is not built on the level of the psyche, the emotions and the thoughts but on the level of the invisible world. When the Bible talks about the end times, it talks about deceiving many times. It always comes from the invisible world, mainly by false prophets. Matthew 7,13-23 13 ‘Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road is easy* that leads to destruction, and there are many who take it. 14 For the gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it. 15 ‘Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? 17 In the same way, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus you will know them by their fruits. 21 ‘Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord”, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only one who does the will of my Father in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many deeds of power in your name?” 23 Then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; go away from me, you evildoers.” Jesus Christ says that the false prophets come in sheep’s clothing to us. We can put it this way: primarily false prophets are not some occult men from the world but people who are like sheep; they call themselves Christians. If you think of a false prophet, don’t imagine a man with tangled hair and raunchy jeans explaining false things to the people on the street corner. Imagine someone who says they are a Christian. Matthew 7,16-20 16 You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? 17 In the same way, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus you will know them by their fruits. Here Jesus Christ says that we know them by their fruits. By their fruits we can see who’s the true prophet and who’s the false prophet. Many people think that in this case for example you have to examine the fruits of the Holy Spirit. For example how much love or delight a person has. But if you look at a hindu guru, you can see some kind of love, delight and peace in him, too. So those fruits that you generally think of as criteria can be faked and copied.

Joseph Bencs True Church and false church Joseph & Rita Bencs Ministries © 3 http://jbencs.blogspot.com That’s why it’s very important for our criterion system to be objective! It must not depend on our subjective judgement! We have to use a totally objective criterion system. This will be one of our main topics. Matthew 7,21-23 21 ‘Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord”, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only one who does the will of my Father in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many deeds of power in your name?” 23 Then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; go away from me, you evildoers.” You can see false prophets and people who belong to the false church say to Jesus Christ: “Lord, Lord”. They call Jesus Lord so they are people who call themselves Christians. But the Word says that they will not go to Heaven. They will argue that they prophesied, they hunted demons and they did many great things. They will refer to the functioning of supernatural powers: - We did many things in Your name, and many supernatural powers worked. – they will say. But Jesus Christ will tell them: “I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers.” It follows that the functioning of supernatural power by itself doesn’t justify a ministry. When Jesus Christ says „you evildoers”, the original Greek scripture refers to a man who is a lawbreaker. A man who ignores God’s law, God’s Word. It’s very important to understand that the deceiving comes through false prophets. The false prophets call themselves Christians. Every person who belongs to the false church calls himself a Christian because he calls Jesus Christ Lord. Jesus Christ talks about the end times in the following verses: Matthew 24,4-11 4 Jesus answered them, ‘Beware that no one leads you astray. 5 For many will come in my name, saying, “I am the Messiah!” and they will lead many astray. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumours of wars; see that you are not alarmed; for this must take place, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places: 8 all this is but the beginning of the birth pangs.9 ‘Then they will hand you over to be tortured and will put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of my name. 10 Then many will fall away, and they will betray one another and hate one another.11 And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. You can see that Jesus Christ begins His teaching about the end times by warning you to be careful and to not be deceived. Understand that going astray is a very serious danger! There are people that I personally know or our friends and fellow ministers know who have been Christians for 10-20 years and ended up on the side of the false church. This is a very-very serious danger! Derek Prince says „if you think you can’t be deceived, you’re already led astray.” It is an extremely serious danger in the end times! Matthew 24,5.11 5 For many will come in my name, saying, “I am the Messiah!” and they will lead many astray. 11 And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. See, deceiving comes through false prophets to Earth and to the Church. Revelation 2,20 20 But I have this against you: you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet and is teaching and beguiling my servants- to practise fornication and to eat food sacrificed to idols.

Joseph Bencs True Church and false church Joseph & Rita Bencs Ministries © 4 http://jbencs.blogspot.com Here the Word says that Jezebel (evil angelic principality in satan’s kingdom), this evil satanic force teaches in the Church. She calls herself a prophet. Jezebel’s goal is to deceive God’s servants. Why? So that they fornicate and eat from the food sacrificed to idols. The Bible refers to a spiritual fornication not to a physical thing. What Jezebel wants to do is to tempt God’s servants to worship and idolize fake gods which is idolatry. This is a very-very serious danger! Mark 13,22-23 22 False messiahs and false prophets will appear and produce signs and omens, to lead astray, if possible, the elect. 23 But be alert; I have already told you everything. Here the Bible says that false messiahs and false prophets will appear and produce big signs and omens. The goal of these big signs and omens will be to lead even the chosen ones astray if possible. Let’s take a look at what the false messiah means and how the false prophet works. For this we have to understand how the true prophet works on the level of the invisible world. The true prophet prays as a spiritual being, enters into the invisible world, spiritually goes up to Heaven and spiritually meets the true Jesus Christ Who gives him understanding and revelations. This process, the operation of the true prophet in the invisible world, is copied by the Devil on the satanic side. The false prophet prays as well, he enters into the invisible world as well, to a place that he thinks is Heaven and there he meets the false christ. Who’s the false christ? It’s either satan himself or it’s an evil angel. So the false prophet meets satan or evil angels on the level of the invisible world. He gets revelations, supernatural power and authority to do certain things (in the invisible and visible world as well) by satan or an evil angel. The true prophet however, gets revelations and understanding from the true Christ. In Revelation the Bible says that the testimony of Jesus Christ is the spirit of prophecy (Rev 19,10). Just like the true prophet gets revelation about the true Jesus Christ, the false prophet also gets relevation about the false christ. We can put it this way: just like the True Jesus Christ reveals Himself to the people through true prophets, the false christs, these evil angels or satan himself, also reveal themselves to the people through false prophets. A whole church is built on this deceiving that comes from the level of the evil angels in the spiritual world; and on false prophetic ministries. This church is called the false church. Today we can see worldwide (in my country, Hungary, too) that there is a disruption going on in the Church: the separation of the True Church and the false church. You may not experience anything of this in your nation, in the country where you are listening to or reading this teaching because in the spiritual world, in the activity of the spiritual world there is a territorial principle. This means that the processes take place in different periods of time in different countries. According to God’s Word we can lay down a principle; before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ the True Church and the false church will be divided. It’s also very important to know that the ratio of the presence of the True Church and that of the false church varies from country to country, region to region. In one country 20% of the Church members may belong to the True Church and 80% of them to the false church while in another country it may be the opposite. Obviously we have to take this territorial principle into consideration. We can only say general principles in this topic. Let’s get to the difficult part! Let’s frame a criterion system that helps us differentiate the True Church from the false church! It has to be objective in practice. This criterion system is good for checking ministries and servants: to see which side they are on. This criterion system is good for making a distinction between the true

Joseph Bencs True Church and false church Joseph & Rita Bencs Ministries © 5 http://jbencs.blogspot.com and the false prophetic ministries. Why is this so important? Because if you are a member of the True Church you get to Heaven. But if you are a member of the false church, you get to Hell. Literally your eternal life, your salvation depends on it! When framing the criterion system, our primary consideration was objectivity and measurability. What does this mean? In the history of the Church a great many have made the mistake of saying that they are the true Church and the rest of the churches are false. We are not talking about this. We are not saying that we are the True Church and the others are the false church. We are saying that there is a criterion system that comes from the Word, which helps us decide who belongs to the True Church and who doesn’t. The Joseph & Rita Bencs Ministries pledged to belong to the True Church and to keep this criterion system that is based on God’s Word. You too only belong to the True Church as long as you keep this criterion system. In these end times this differentiation is very- very important! 2Corinthians 11,3-4 3 But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by its cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.4 For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you submit to it readily enough. Here Paul says that there is another Jesus, there are false christs, there is another spirit that is not the Holy Spirit and there is a different gospel as well. Let’s go through this list briefly! We are talking about how to make a distinction between the True Church and the false church. 1. The True Church introduces us the true Jesus Christ, the false church introduces us a false christ. The Bible’s basic revelation is Jesus Christ Himself. God’s Word gives us revelation about Jesus Christ’s personality. Jesus Christ is equal to God’s Word so the Word is a revelation of Jesus Christ and His personality. Looking at the processes in the Church globally, we can see that there are many kinds of false christs. Let’s take one example: when Jesus Christ is shown just as the Savior but not as the Judge. People talk about Him like He’s some kind of Santa Claus who exists to bless you, who loves you and gives you kisses. But they never talk about Jesus Christ as our judge. In Heaven and on Earth. We know from the Bible that God has judgements in eternity and also in the physical world. He has had judgements throughout the history of mankind. The Christ who doesn’t appear as the judge, only as the kind Savior full of love is a false christ. Jesus Christ on the one hand is our Saviour who died on the cross for us, who really loves us but He’s our judge as well. Ask yourself how you think of Him! Examine your preachings! Analyse what kind of preachings you listen to! Examine whose sermons you listen to! How do they talk about Jesus Christ? How much do they talk about that fact that Jesus Christ is the judge as well? 2. The True Church preaches the True Gospel, the false church preaches a false gospel. Let’s have a look at what the True Gospel is! Acts 17,30-31 30 While God has overlooked the times of human ignorance, now he commands all people everywhere to repent,31 because he has fixed a day on which he will have the world judged in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.’

Joseph Bencs True Church and false church Joseph & Rita Bencs Ministries © 6 http://jbencs.blogspot.com Paul says that God has a rightful anger and judgement on all the people because of the sin. God will judge everybody through Jesus Christ. But now you can get converted you can avoid this judgement. The conditions are: - You accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. - You accept His sacrifice, which he made on the Cross because of your sins, as a sacrifice he made for you personally. - Furthermore you turn to Jesus Christ and convert from your sins. This is the Gospel. Paul preaches this one. We will take a look at only a couple of Verses this time, but you should read the whole Acts and have a look at what was being said back then when the Gospel was preached. We will see one common feature: God always has a rightful judgement because of the sin, but we can get absolution by Jesus Christ because of His salvation. You have to get converted from your sins! God forgives only those people who are converted from their sins, who subordinate themselves to God. The Bible never promised absolution without being converted from the sin. It never says that you don’t have to be converted from your sins, God will forgive us anyway. That’s a lie! God only forgives the converted. Acts 10,34-43 (Peter preaches the Gospel to Cornelius and his household) 34 Then Peter began to speak to them: ‘I truly understand that God shows no partiality, 35 but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him. 36 You know the message he sent to the people of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ—he is Lord of all. 37 That message spread throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John announced: 38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power; how he went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. 39 We are witnesses to all that he did both in Judea and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree; 40 but God raised him on the third day and allowed him to appear, 41 not to all the people but to us who were chosen by God as witnesses, and who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. 42 He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one ordained by God as judge of the living and the dead. 43 All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.’ Let’s have a look: Peter said that Jesus Christ had ordered them to preach that He „is the one ordained by God as judge of the living and the dead”. In the Gospel and everywhere in Acts we can read only that God has a rightful judgement but we can avoid it because of Jesus Christ. God forgives you only because of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice. Every preaching contains this! This is the true Gospel. What’s the false gospel? The false gospel doesn’t speak about judgement, sin, it doesn’t say that we have to be converted. „Come to Jesus, Jesus loves you, Jesus will bless you.” This is the false gospel. Every gospel is false that: - doesn’t talk about God’s true and rightful judgement, - doesn’t say that Jesus appears as a judge, - doesn’t say that we have to be converted from our sins. The false gospel is just a ”light” gospel, it only talks about Jesus loving you and that you should come to Jesus. 3. In the True Church there is true anointing, in the false church there is false anointing.

Joseph Bencs True Church and false church Joseph & Rita Bencs Ministries © 7 http://jbencs.blogspot.com You may think that there are many surprising things in this teaching. Up until now you may have known about one type of anointing; one spirit, the Holy Spirit. And now we’re talking about false anointing. Let’s define the anointing! God made Jesus Christ Lord, Christ and King in Heaven. As it was mentioned in previous teachings, Heaven is working on restoring Jesus Christ’s Royal Reign so everything gets under Jesus Christ’s Royal Throne. We consider the anointing the anointing of the Holy Spirit, something that comes from the Anointed, Christ, from Christ’s Throne. The spirit’s goal is always to realize Jesus Christ’s Royal Reign. Let’s take a look at Jesus Christ’s reign and governance! Hebrews 1,1-4 1 Long ago God spoke to our ancestors in many and various ways by the prophets, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by a Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom he also created the worlds. 3 He is the reflection of God’s glory and the exact imprint of God’s very being, and he sustains all things by his powerful word. When he had made purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs. What the Bible says here about Jesus Christ is that He sustains all things by his powerful word, that is by God’s Word. Jesus Christ governs by the Word. He’s the Word. When we say that the Holy Spirit restores Jesus Christ’s Royal Reign, this means that the Holy Spirit realizes the Word. So the Holy Spirit puts God’s Word, Jesus Christ in the center and the focus. Jesus Christ says that the Holy Spirit will praise Him all the time. What’s the false spirit? Every spirit, every supernatural power that doesn’t do the same, but for example deverts people from God’s Word and the authority of God’s Word. Let’s see an example! There is a prophet who says he’s a prophet and had heavenly experiences. And after that the message or the preaching is about the heavenly experience overwriting God’s Word, so it doesn’t matter what’s in the Bible, what matters is only what he went through. So he tries to divert people from God’s Word and the authority of God’s Word. In this case it’s a false anointing working, not the Holy Spirit. 4. The True Church subordinates itself to God’s Word, the false church questions and attacks the authority of the written Word. (This is a continuation of the previous thought.) The Joseph & Rita Bencs Ministries firmly believes in and is committed to the fact that God’s written Word is the principal authority. We know that this is the only Rock that keeps us. So the false church questions, moreover, attacks the authority of the written Word. Today it’s a worldwide phenomenon. We suggest you distance yourself from every ministry and every trend that in any way attacks the authority of the written Word. If the devil can get you to divert from the authority of the written Word once, this will put you on a downhill slope, the bottom of this slope is in hell. We wish nobody that. 5. The false church denies the existence of false church. Devil likes to work in the darkness, in secret. He doesn’t want Christians to know that a false church exists. The true Church is built by Jesus, the false church is built by the devil from Christians. Therefore both the false church and the devil denies the existing of the false church. The devil says: „Come on… that doesn’t exist!”

Joseph Bencs True Church and false church Joseph & Rita Bencs Ministries © 8 http://jbencs.blogspot.com According to God’s Word in the end times we can see the separation of the True Church and the false church. The Church is going to split worldwide (schisma). So in the light of God’s Word we believe that every preaching, teaching, speech or vision that is related to the unity of the Church in the end times is false. The communists were told ”proletarians of all countries, unite!” Then came the ecumenism that wanted to unite all religions. And now the devil says that there should be a unity in the Church, he propagates efforts for unity. He says that we should pray and work for the Christians’ unity. But the Bible does not say that. It says that will be polarization. When we say that we consider efforts for unity false, we don’t want to say, declare or advise that no one should cooperate or work together with others. Our ministry also cooperates and works together in many countries with many Christian servants. We have built cooperations and are open to any cooperation that is according to God. What we are talking about is that there will be no worldwide unity in the Church. We are not going to the direction of being united with everyone in virtue of love or various humanistic ideologies. The Bible does not talk about this! We refuse to be united with those who call themselves Christians but are false prophets. We distance ourselves from these ministries. And we suggest you distance yourself from these people too because if you follow them, you will get to hell. This really is not a game! Creatures in the spiritual world, such as good angels, evil angels, Satan and the demons take everything very seriously. God also takes everything very seriously. We also have to take it very seriously that if God said something in the Bible, He meant it. In one of his teachings Derek Prince said that faith means taking God seriously. Taking seriously that what He said in the Bible is what He meant. We suggest you take things very seriously because this is not a game! In the 5. section we said that the false church denies the existing of the false church. We are not talking about a unity in the Church, we’re talking about a polarisation that will take place in the Church. The True Church and the false church will split. 6. The false church denies the necessity of Biblical conversion. It says: „Just come to Jesus, Jesus has already forgiven you, you don’t have to be converted.” There is a trend that you may know or may have heard about it. For example the pastor of one of the biggest churches of America and also one of the most popular TV preacher declared that God accepts homosexuality. God doesn’t accept homosexuality! God destroyed Sodom and Gomorra because of homosexuality. God has the same opinion on homosexuality today too. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. There is no alteration or any shadow of the alteration in God whatsoever. Certain preachers preach that you don’t have to be converted because Jesus Christ’s salvation automatically overflows on you. That’s a lie! Every teaching that denies the biblical conversion is a lie! The biblical conversion is very much neccessary! When Jesus Christ started His work, He said that God’s Kingdom has come. Be converted and believe in the Gospel! Jesus Christ announced that God’s Kingdom is here. The right reaction to this is that we stop the rebellion and get converted. Get converted from all our sins and subordinate ourselves to the King, Jesus Christ. See, only after that did He say „believe in the Gospel!” Conversion is the first! Everything that skips the necessity of the Biblical conversion is fake! When we talk about conversion we don’t mean: „…, come to Jesus, say a conversion prayer and you have gotten converted”. One the hand it’s true that there is a conversion in this case. But the Biblical conversion is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Accepting Him as your Lord means that you start to subordinate yourself to Jesus Christ and God’s Word. You throw away everything the Bible mentions as a sin from your life. We believe that conversion is a radical change. We refuse to have a connection with anything that in any way

Joseph Bencs True Church and false church Joseph & Rita Bencs Ministries © 9 http://jbencs.blogspot.com binds us to the sin and the devil. Instead we subordinate ourselves to Jesus Christ as the Lord and King. There are two types of people that are certainly not converted even if they say they are Christians:  One of them is who worships a false God. What is a false God? For example a false Christ. (S)he doesn’t talk about the true Jesus Christ but false christs. So whoever talks about a Christ that is any different from the Christ in the Bible worships a false God. This means that (s)he is not converted even if she’s talking about Jesus Christ. For example mormons, buddhists or Jehova’s witnesses talk about Jesus Christ. But they are not Christians. Why? Because they are not Biblically converted.  The other type of is the one that is not converted and whoever is in rebellion can’t be considered a Christian even if (s)he says that (s)he is Christian. By rebellion we don’t mean that someone sinned as a Christian. Rebellion has many forms. Let’s emphasize just one of these: rebellion against God’s written Word. This is the case when someone says that the Word doesn’t matter. Several times I met people who said they were prophets and when we sat down and I grabbed my Bible and started to read the Word they said something like „it doesn’t matter what is written in the Bible, I had a prophetic experience like this or like that, and that is the truth.” And then I read another verse and they said „it doesn’t matter because Lord told me this or that” Every person that denies the authority of God’s written Word is in rebellion. If someone is in rebellion, they are not converted, Biblically they can’t be considered Christians. We can’t state clearly that the ones mentioned in the next paragraph belong to the false church. They are on the boundary and we think that they are very much open to the false church. It’s very likely that unless they change their attitude, they will slip to the side of the false church. 7. Supernatural power is used to legitimate the ministry. A person from the false Church may say that the ministry is from God because this and that kind of miracles happen, this and that kind of supernatural power is working. God excuses the ignorance. But since you’re reading this teaching, you are not ignorant. If you use supernatural power to legitimate your ministry, if you think that miracles certify your service, you are on the boundary, you are in a dangerous situation. You can slip to the side of the false church if you don’t build your ministry primarily onto God’s Word, the authority of God’s Word and if you don’t keep the first 6 points. It’s very important to understand that the working of supernatural power such as healings, casting out demons, prophetic acts or any miracles don’t legitimate anything. It doesn’t confirm that these are from God. God can make miracles, but so can the devil. Our standpoint in this topic is very radical: if there are 500 people who are medically certified dead and a servant resurrects all of them, even that doesn’t prove that this servant is from God. Satan can resurrect people as well. Obviously not in a resurrected body but he can bring them back to life again. Let’s see an example - in Revelations the antichrist is resurrected by satan (Rev 13,14). So even the resurrection of the dead doesn’t testify that a miracle is from God. That’s why it's very dangerous to think that healing, casting out demons or any supernatural power or miracle certifies a ministry! Supernatural power doesn’t legitimate anything! Authenticity is legitimated by the first 6 points. Analyse these: - Is the servant talking about the true Jesus Christ? - Is the servant preaching the true Gospel?

Joseph Bencs True Church and false church Joseph & Rita Bencs Ministries © 10 http://jbencs.blogspot.com The Bible says that „for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned” (Matthew 12,37). Look, examine who says what, who believes in what, who talks about what! We encourage everybody to look behind the scenes. Don’t look at the surface only! Take a deeper look at it! For example if a prophet heals many people but never talks about Jesus Christ being also the judge and never invites people to a biblical conversion then (s)he is a false prophet even if many people are healed by his/her ministry. It’ very important to make a distinction! 8. It’s focused on God’s blessings, ignoring serving to God. People affected by such attitude don’t neccessarily belong to the false church but are on the boundary. These people think that the reason for the existence of God is to bless them but they don’t want to serve Him. The essence of the Biblical Christianity is that God created us to serve Jesus Christ, the King. Every teaching that over-emphasizes the blessings and shows God as a Santa Claus who lavishes his blessings on us, but never says that we have to serve Jesus Christ, where the service is not in the focus, is essentially false. We have to get converted from this behavior because in the false church satan will bless people and this is why they won’t serve Jesus Christ but satan. If you take a look at the theology of the charismatical movement, you can see the expectation and of supernatural power and how they want it to work. Its theology is also mainly about how we can take possession of blessings. It talks little about the service towards God. According to the aforementioned thoughts in the 7th and 8th points, the charismatical movement is the most affected. This also means that the charismatical movement faces a big challenge. It will be open and it’s already open to the false church. Most of the charismatical movement will most likely come over to the side of the false church. We wish it wasn’t true and it didn’t happen! These were the criteria that you can check. It’s very important to examine all the ministries, even ours by these factors. This is not a game! The biggest question of the end times will be, and this is also what God asks from you and me: how much do you love Me? How much do you love Jesus Christ? If you love Jesus Christ, you introduce Him the true way, you preach the true Gospel, you work together with the true Spirit, you lift up the authority of the written Word. We wish you and also us to never leave God’s Word, the Rock! Teachings of the Joseph & Rita Bencs Ministries are listened to and read in more than 70 countries in the world. The teachings forward Jesus’ revelations to the Church. Christ reveals these for a deeper understanding of the Word. Every revelation is related to the understanding of the reasons for the current spiritual conditions experienced globally. The Effective Christian Life Bible School (ECLBS) was founded in August 2013. The mission of ECLBS is to teach the theological and practical use of these revelations worldwide. ECLBS already operates in 20 countries. There is a demand to open it in many other countries. The opening of the countries is happening gradually.
