The entire globe is stricken with the current Covid-19 pandemic which has overturned our regular way of life. It has shut down the economy of every nation, and plunged the entire globe into a devastating health crisis. At the time of this writing around 3.15 million people globally have died from this pandemic (29th April, 2021). We have survived the first wave by God’s grace only to find that a second wave (more aggressive than the first) is upon us. There is even mention of a third-wave-possibility due to mutations of this virus.
Over the years Joyce Meyer has risen in Christian Ministry as a popular speaker and “bible teacher”. However, this article highlights her subtle heresies and is well substantiated / documented by embeded audio clips and transcripts prepared by Fran Sankey so the reader can hear and read the text for themselves. It is an eye opener into her subtle and sometimes outright heresies. Those doing Bible College will find this particularly interesting as she endeavours to teach about how Christ went down into Hell (after He was crucified) and was pummeled by the demons of Hell as they shouted in glee, thinking they had a victory (all of which is non-scriptural). She further adds how she received personal revelation that Jesus was born again in Hell and then rose from the grave (all of which is heretical). Any bible student can see through Satan’s ploy to take away attention from the Cross of Christ.
Well in her 1991 Booklet called The Most Important Decision you Will Ever Make Joyce Meyer writes quote, “During that time he entered hell where you and I deserved to go because of our sin. He paid the price there. No plan was too extreme. Jesus paid on the cross and in hell.”
These so called special revelations (not to be found in scripture) are typical of all Word of Faith ministers. Another such example of personal revelation is as follows (quote):
“Do you know something? The minute that blood sacrifice was accepted Jesus was the first human being that was ever born again. Now that was real it happened when he was in hell.”

With the onslaught of bad / fake news inundating us day by day through the internet, social media networks and various news channels (all of which are very often the private agenda of vested interests), you will notice that we normally tend to receive news that suggests that the Devil is in charge, or that Man in his cleverness is steering society according to his plans. So we talk about things such as The Deep State, Shadow Governments, The Illuminati, Globalists, One World Order, etc, which do nothing but incite fear in the heart of man. Though much of the above may be true, the problem with such fallacious thinking suggests that God has been relegated to the sidelines and appears helpless, impotent and unable to do anything. Nothing could be further from the truth. Even though Satan has been designated as god of this world (2 Cor 4:4) as a result of the fall, God the Creator, is still sovereignly in charge of His entire Universe. Continue reading

An important question that many Christians often ask is ” Are we living in the last days or end times?” When people ask me this question, I usually respond with a clear ” Yes and No!” Such an answer requires an explanation. My explanation is that the Bible uses such terminology in multiple ways, so that some references do refer to our own day, while others do not. Continue reading
