I just took a few minutes to listen to one of Pastor Brian Brennt's sermons online. He is clearly articulating C. Peter Wagner's New Apostolic Reformation speak and Dutch Sheets' prayer perspectives (he seems to be almost plagerizing from Sheets, in fact). Does he fancy himself an apostle for this "age" by any chance?
Oh! You guys need to be savvy about what C. Peter Wagner's New Apostolic reformation agenda is. I didn't know about it until I got sucked into a bunch of false teachings along these lines and began to google "buzz phrases" and found out why my "gut" (the red flags the Holy Spirit was raising) was roiling with aversion.
I post on another thread b/c I was part of another church. But I came on here (your thread) curious to know if there were similarities. I'm seeing that SO MANY CHURCHES ARE INFECTED WITH THESE TEACHINGS. This church is one of them. HEADS UP, my friends--dear brothers and sisters!

May God's Spirit lead you into all truth. He's faithful.
PS: What is this "fruit" we're pointing to for evidence that the ministry is valid? There will be some people whom Jesus will turn away on the day of reckoning--some of these people will be ones who say they've prophsied, healed, done miracles, etc., in His name. He'll tell them to depart, that He never knew them. The fruit of the Spirit is love, JOY, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
A worldly organization can open a homeless shelter. Here's what I'm deeply convinced of after my exerience with my former church: If the focus is prayer or deliverance or anything other than Jesus and His gospel, the church is off track. THAT'S biblical.
