The “NAR” movement (New Apostolic Reformation)
The “NAR” movement (New Apostolic Reformation) is a dangerous fraud . . . . . . now being perpetrated upon gullible Christians by Pastors and Churches.
The NAR movement appears to be a long term attempt designed to move traditional Constantine Roman Christian beliefs into the 20th Century. With the modern age of enlightenment, coming some 1,700 years after the invention of Constantine Roman New Testament (NT) Christianity, it has become more difficult for churches to convince “the scientifically educated” and taught young people of today’s society into accepting the traditional Doctrinal beliefs of Christianity.
It seems inevitable that in time the traditional doctrinal beliefs of NT Christianity like the virgin birth; the trinity personhood of God; Mary as the mother of God; that a human sacrifice was needed to please God in order for Him to forgive sins, etc. would eventually become repulsive to the modern reasoning mind and therefore Christianity would in time need some sort of a replacement belief. This would of course require a complete make-over of traditional NT Christendom. The NAR movement, in our opinion, is the beginning of one such a change-over movement. But is another new man-made “Christian type” of religion needed?
We agree that Christianity needs a huge make-over, but if a new so-called Biblical following belief is needed, it should not come by way of prophets or apostles that are NOT Biblically tested. As for Apostles, there were only 12 of them ever appointed in the NT (Acts 1:24-26) and there will not be any more (according to the NT). Anyone familiar with Yahwism (Israelism) as promoted on https://AOYCascade.com (our website) and as taught in the Hebrew Bible would know that the NT is not inspired and does not claim to be inspired. There is really no need for the NT at all. The prophet Yahshua (Jesus) of the NT writings never ever used the NT since it did not exist as a collection until 325 years after him, Yahshua (Jesus) only used and taught from the Hebrew Bible.
Everything that one needs to know about life, how to live in harmony with the Creator, and how to receive “eternal life” has already been revealed to man in the Hebrew Bible through the ancient appointed prophets who were speaking for YHWH, who is the Almighty Sovereign Creator Life-Force Essence of all that exists or has ever existed.
The Hebrew Bible has given us very specific “tests” for prophets, since the ancient Israelites were also subjected to “false prophets” and needed a guide to determine a true prophet from a false one. This was given to them by YHWH through Moses and is to be used by us, in our age as well.
To summarize, there may come a time when YHWH will provide new prophets for Bible believers, but they must always be “tested” to be “true.” If they do not pass the Biblical tests they are false prophets and they should be rejected as false and NOT listened to.
What the Hebrew Bible teaches can be summed up as follows:
Mic 6:6 "With what shall I come before YHWH, and bow myself before Mighty One on high? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old?
Mic 6:7 Will YHWH be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?"
Mic 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does YHWH require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your Mighty One?
Modern Churches are mostly fraudulent if they teach something other than what YHWH has given by way of the ancient anointed prophets to Israel as found only in the Hebrew Bible. The Mighty One of the Hebrew Bible does not change. He has given His Covenant (10 Commandments) originally to ancient Israel, to be available to all who want to keep them and thereby become members of His eternal household, Isaiah 55; 56., Deut. 5:2-22.
New movements like NAR attempt to pave the way for gullible traditional believing Christians (NT believers) into accepting “new” prophets but to accept only those who will be appointed by “NAR” churches into believing the coming “new” revelations. This is all done in the attempt to move believers into, and to build for them, a “new” flavor of Christianity that will hopefully become more acceptable to our modern enlightened scientifically oriented society.
The Churches in the NAR movement want to maintain control over the traditional believing Christian; it’s for financial reasons as well. Like the proverbial frog in water who ends up boiled because he doesn’t recognize that the cold water is being heated to boil, and ends up cooked, Christians in the new movement will go from Christianity into another false religious branch of new beliefs. If they do not recognize that the water will eventually boil and jump out of these false beliefs, they will be cooked.
Although the NAR movement is attempting to move traditional Christianity into a believable and more acceptable modern direction (in some ways a good thing), this was already done under Moses (a prophet-leader to ancient Israel) when YHWH’s Covenant was given through him to Israel. Israel was then moved (reformed) from pagan polytheism (as was held and practiced by their surrounding neighboring countries) into monotheistic “Yahwism” the worship of the one true Mighty One named YHWH . . . . .
Ever since the revelations YHWH gave to the ancient Israelites by way of the true anointed prophets, there has been no need for religions like Christianity; the “new” NAR movement or for any Churches controlled by mortal men.
YHWH, the Mighty One of Israel has already given us complete eternal freedom by His revelation to ancient Israel found only in the Hebrew Bible. Nothing man can do is comparable to what the Creator has already revealed to man because of His mercy through the ancient anointed prophets of Israel some 3,000 years ago. The Hebrew Bible should be the foundation of your belief, it is the only place where eternal life can be found.
