Together 2016: Unbiblical Unity on the National Mall

Wake up, brethren!  Evangelicals are being lured into a web of deception by Church leaders we trust. Read the article we’re posting and you’ll find out who some of these people are.

They’re wolves!  Run!!

For those who missed all the hype, on July 16 an event called Together 2016 was held at the Washington Mall.  Thousands of professing Christians gathered together to pray for Jesus to “reset” the country and their lives.  Sadly, attendees at the mall and on live stream were unaware that the event was rife with false teachers.  They didn’t know that speakers and entertainers braved the blistering heat for one purpose: to reset the Reformation!  What was the rallying cry?  UNITE!  With who?  Our Catholic “brothers and sisters.”

In a piece over at Herescope, Gaylene Goodroad documents the NAR/dominionist’s plan to unite Protestants and Catholics.  This is MUST READ for all serious Christians.

Wolves beware

7-16-16 Washington Mall Event to “Reset Christianity”
Millions of evangelical leaders, authors, and entertainers will be gathering at the National Mall in Washington DC on July 16 in a concerted effort to ‘bring heaven down to earth’ in what has been called a national “revival”, “great awakening”, or secondary “Pentecost”. The Together 2016 event is closely aligned with the doctrines and personnel of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) that teaches a strident form of Dominionism, a fact that will be documented in this article. The fervor is high with the backdrop of a hotly divisive election year, violent civil unrest, and looming calamities on all fronts. Organizers of this broadly-touted event say that they want to forge Christian unity in all of this, but in order to achieve it, we must lay aside biblical doctrine which, they say, brings further division. Regrettably, as the Scriptures clearly teach, the resulting spectacle will only lead participants away from Christ and into full-fledged apostasy. Below is what is being touted:

JESUS CHANGES EVERYTHING
Our generation is the most cause-driven in history. But our causes are pulling us apart. Even religion doesn’t unite. We believe only Jesus can bring us together. July 16, 2016, is the day our generation will meet on the National Mall to come together around Jesus in unified prayer, worship, and a call for catalytic change.
WE’RE BUILDING TOWARD SOMETHING UNPRECEDENTED.
We believe there’s power in coming together. Jesus promised whenever two or more come together in His name, He is present. It’s emboldening to join with others, to know we’re not alone, to realize we can do more together than apart. July 16, 2016 is the day when this generation lays down what divides us and lifts up Jesus who unites us. On a day of unified prayer, worship, and a call for catalytic change, we will meet on the National Mall to declare that Jesus changes everything. We believe Jesus can do unprecedented things in our time. Our dream is for more than one million people from all backgrounds to be part of this generation-defining day.
IT’S TIME TO COME TOGETHER AROUND JESUS.
There have been times in history where the call to Jesus assembled the masses: Explo 72, promise Keepers’ stand in the Gap, crusades led by Rev. Billy Graham. These were historic events where the impact stretched beyond the Church to all of culture.
Now our generation is rising up to lead toward a historic event that will define our time and shift our culture. The statistics of this generation are sobering; young people struggle with depression, self-harm, suicide, and addiction at unprecedented rates. But a call for hope is rising—the hope that only Jesus brings—to change our generation forever.[1]

The Washington Mall has become a choice spot for massive gatherings, probably because it serves as a symbolic unity point near our nation’s capital. In 1995 (and again in 2015), controversial Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, organized the Million Man March which brought hundreds of thousands of like-minded men together at that very location in a show of solidarity.[2]

In 1997, Colorado coach Bill McCartney, gathered nearly a half million ecumenical Promise Keepers to the National Mall for another massive march. Hundreds of thousands of Catholics and Evangelicals of all stripes swarmed to participate in the historic event.[3]

Then in 2010, the devout Mormon, and political conservative television host, Glenn Beck, organized yet another immense national gathering—an ecumenically religious one—on the Washington Mall in an event called the Restoring Honor Rally.[4] NAR devotee Sarah Palin was a keynote speaker.[5] Given the fact that 2016 is an election year, some wonder when or if these religious rallies will also become overtly political in nature, fervently blending together church and state in dramatic dominionistic fashion. Presumptive Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, has been publicly courted by the Prosperity Preachers and has an affinity for the New Thought writings of the late Dr. Norman Vincent Peale[6] —predecessor to Robert Schuller[7] —and Rick Warren, who initiated his own ecumenical P.E.A.C.E. Plan and sparked controversy when he gave the invocation at President Obama’s 2009 Inauguration.[8] And the NAR-connected May Day event, held in Washington, D.C. at the Lincoln Memorial on May 1, 2010, stated in is its Official Program that they were praying the “Prayers of Repentance for the Seven Mountains of Culture,” i.e., Dominionism. (Read “May Day Prayers.”)

Together 2016 is yet another event to attempt to fulfill the old Latter Rain cult prophecies about filling stadiums with mass numbers of young people, a new breed of elect seed that they believe is an elite specially empowered generation to rule and reign over the earth. (See the article “The Significance of Youth-Filled Stadiums.”) Together 2016 aims to fill the National Mall again with over a million zealous souls seeking to induce a pervasive, landmark, and revolutionary spiritual awakening.

STUDENT VISIONARY SETS ‘PULSE’ OF RESET EVENT
The 33-year-old catalyst for the Together 2016 event is Nick Hall, who as a college freshman in 2001, jotted this declaration in his notebook: “My life exists to put Christ at the pulse of a generation.”[9] This was the genesis of Hall’s ‘Pulse” movement— a massive student-led movement—founded to ‘reset’ the ‘pulse’ of the nation back to Jesus. The event’s website explains:

WE’RE ASKING JESUS TO RESET OUR GENERATION. 

A reset to our created purpose. 
In 2012, a group of people from different backgrounds, known then as RESET Movement, began sharing the message of a “reset” at events and gatherings. The term relates to technology, where a reset clears past errors and gets the system working toward its created purpose. In the same way, every person is created for a purpose—but we have downloaded the wrong files, corrupted the system, and fallen away from God’s best for our lives. Each of us needs a reset, and Jesus offers everyone a supernatural reset.[10] [bold added]  Continue reading

    Another ministry involved in all this is ‘Saints Alive in Jesus’ Ed Decker. I receive his monthly newsletter. In the June Newsletter it says and I quote: “New Connections” As many of you have noticed, we have been making some new connections with Saints Alive and are stepping out to explore those connections to see what God wants to do! It is our desire to make a maximum impact with the support, trust and prayer you have given us. WE GAVE OFFICIALLY JOINED THE NEXT GENERATION ALLIANCE. By joining this alliance of ministries, we are gaining much needed lateral support from other ministries who are involved with evangelism, apologetics and spreading the Gospel in the world, In addition to networking and collaboration, they provide resources and training for personal and organization development, fundraising, ministry helps and mobilization. It is important to have fellowship and be connected and grounded in the body of Christ. Through this connection, we have made strategic contacts with both The Call (Azusa Now) led by Lou Engle and a campus/youth ministry called Pulse Movement by Nick Hall. We are hoping to take these connections and tools even further and impact the world with the Gospel with the Pulse Movement event July 16 in Washington DC. The goal is for 1 million people to attend the event on the national mall!
    Further in the newsletter it states, “Ministry Link @ connecting the Body of Christ, Featuring: Surfing the Nations -Tom and Cindy Bauer” The is a photo of Ed and his family at Azusa Now event, and at the bottom of the newsletter is a photo of Ed Decker head bowed in the arms of Todd White. Just so you know the connection has been for 30 years, not just recently. I have another newsletter stating it.

    Just so no one gets upset at me, I did contact Ed Decker in February and he did reply to me in anger. I was concerned about the affiliation with Lou Engle and told him so. But I was nice about it. In the letter he stated, “My son, Jason and a number of his friends at Azusa Bible attended Lou Engle’s church and it was a life changer for almost all of them. One couple has a dynamic church in TX; Jason has walked with a new life in Christ ever since one night there when he felt the Lord calling him to a life of full surrender and service. While you may not Like Toby Mac and his music” (I never said that, I showed his connection with the pope). to continue, “he (Toby Mac) is a personal friend of my son. He has a broken heart for the lost of this generation and Jason will be with him in Utah to see the altars fill with lost kids reaching out for the Jesus of the Cross. And Jason and follow up teams will be there to disciple and love these new creatures in Christ. Finally, Carol and I and two of our sons will be at the Call. We were invited to be there with one of the greatest international evangelists this nation has ever know, whose ministry has lead millions to the cross. Our sons are friends in their shared burdens for the lost. I am honored to attend with him.” end. So now it is my fear that the lost souls of Mormonism are being lead to another cult and not being set free. This burdens my heart as I did support Ed Decker’s ministry until I found out only this year that this ministry has been deceiving us for 30 years!

      Is this the same Ed Decker that wrote the book -Fast Facts on False Teachings

      • nannette July 19, 2016 at 8:10 am #

        Yes it is. He also did God Makers with Dave Hunt. I use to hand out his books but now I can’t because it might lead a person whom I’m trying to reach with the gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) to his ministry.

    There are three words that fully describe what’s been happening lately in the US: The Great Apostasy. It’s unfurling at a dizzying speed, the wolves are out in the open, no shame, no hindrance…….. Folks we all know where this is headed, if you read and study your bible, this will not surprise you. Rome will soon be dictating to these fools, after the apostasy is completed, then the antichrist will rise, the pope will be admonishing all to worship the beast, who will perform signs and wonder as per Revelation. The folks at TBS are ready, as the ones in Saddleback, Furtick and Hybels have their followers ready, as well as the Druckerites in the NAR camp! Folks please read your bibles and pray! We are at the cusp! Look at the social unrest here and in Europe, notice how the masses have lost confidence in their leaders! One will arise that will inspire, will have answers and will have a supernatural glow about him! Once thing begging to get hotter and leaders around the world start capitulating know that the man of sin is near. Europe is being over run by Muslim criminals, the US is slowly falling apart, corruption is entrenched in the higher echelons of government, people are afraid. As a Christian you must not be, you know that God is in control, so don’t be afraid as you see things grow worse, and they will. Pray and rely on God, He is good, He is our protector. Get the word out! Witness to as many as you can, in truth! Present the gospels as if your life depends on it, witness to everyone, even those in church, as “church” is just as full of the lost as the culture. Maranatha! May our God protect His flock!

      Thank you manny for your words of encouragement! We watch and pray for our king Jesus!

      • Manny1962 July 20, 2016 at 1:19 pm #

        Thank you Friend,

        It seems all we get these days is bad news and what we Christians forget is that God is in control! He has made many promises to us that we can take comfort in as we watch the world come apart at the seams! I can’t stress enough how important it is for us to get solidly into The Word now, it’s a must, seeing how the days are growing worse. We must pray unceasingly, for our children, families, for the few good pastors left and for the bride, we are small but He who keeps us is beyond compare! God bless, Maranatha! Soon enough this chapter will be behind us all!

  6. Timothy Shumer July 19, 2016 at 8:52 pm #

    If they are trying to re-unify Catholics and Protestants then I am glad I am a Baptist! My forefathers never had to “reform” since they never joined in, in the first place.

  7. Manny1962 July 20, 2016 at 1:14 pm #

    Good afternoon Timothy,

    Unfortunately no denomination is heresy free…….as for baptists, the SBC is apostate, it’s leaders have seen to that, given the time we are living in, I wouldn’t worry about which denomination is pure or not, to be frank none are. I’d be more concerned about following Jesus, reading the bible daily, praying daily, and carrying on the great commission by witnessing to all denominations…..as they grow more apostate with each passing day. Denominational branding has nothing to do with Christianity, they’re man made and unbiblical, you are either a follower of Jesus Christ or you follow man, soon enough they will follow one man. Maranatha!

      Nail-on-the-head!

  8. John July 20, 2016 at 5:36 pm #

    I watched the last 90 minutes of this event. What I learned was ‘reset’ alot instead of repentance. Is RESET in the Greek language anyway?

    I also learned that I was very special from Tebow………Osteen anyone?

    Franics Chan read from Isaiah and the crowd HUSHED. That was my highlight. Non one said a word and when he was done only a few hand claps which made me wonder.

    When I heard it was being shut down early because of illness I began to ask what happened to the power of God? Then I realized that this may be a judgment of God?

  9. Manny1962 July 20, 2016 at 6:56 pm #

    What you saw was lollapalooza for “Christian” lite………….. In other words Apostasy 101. These heretics keep trying God, they are playing with fire. Tebow: it’s pathetic how people automatically assume someone is saved because he names the name of Christ. I feel so sorry for the young victims of these wolves. They need our prayers. And why couldn’t the Super NAR apostles attending pray away all the sickness? Hmmmmmmm………..perhaps their god wasn’t listening, or maybe their god needed more money to provide a sign and wonder? Or, why didn’t they name it and claim it? Maybe the pope could’ve stepped in? What they needed was Benny Hinn to ride on the stage atop a pink unicorn and put the kabosh on the fainting spells, after much money was donated of course. How utterly sad the name of Jesus Christ is named in these apostate excuses for revival……………..dark days indeed.
