Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis are two of the worst con-merchants, false teachers and deceitful frauds ever to foist themselves upon the Body of Christ. Not only are their teachings deeply heretical and outright blasphemous at many points, but they have milked gullible and ignorant Christians for literally billions of dollars throughout their careers, and they live in opulent and shameful luxury at the expense of those foolish and deluded enough to send them money. Sadly there are those among us here in Israel who want to bring more and more of this kind of false teaching into the country. . . .
The video below was put out by Revealing Truth. Jennifer LeClaire -a true crackpot if ever there was one is connected with our local Tikkun NARpostle's friends at Bethel Redding. The word "false prophet" when used to describe LeClaire seems almost like an understatement. She spues out false prophecies faster than a dog who's eaten something nasty can bring his breakfast back.
I can confirm what this guy is saying from other sources as well. In fact it's far worse than this.
As if the previous post on Dalton Thomas wasn't enough. Here's confirmation that his doctrine is seriously off, I mean way off.
Anyone who can describe Bickle as a "gift to the Body" has a real problem doctrinally. Bickle and his IHOP clown troupe are some of the worst wolves and deceivers out there today and have spawned a movement which has probably caused more devestation to the Body of Christ than almost any other historically. The damage they have done to huge numbers of unsuspecting youth they have permanently damaged is probably incalculable. Apart from the moral and ethical issues revealed in the previous post, this tells us that Dalton Thomas has NO discernment, just like our local pseudo-apostles of Revive Israel and Tikkun. This tweet of Thomas' is a huge warning sign saying STAY AWAY.
Quite a number of individuals have asked me about Dalton Thomas and Frontiers Alliance International. FAI seems to tick a lot of boxes: radical discipleship, evangelism, prayer, helping out in dangerous places like Iraq, Syria etc. Like myself however, they say something doesn't seem quite right, something is just a little "off". I felt the same thing and was perturbed. I could see many things to commend, but . . . .
There are some groups and individuals that have gone so far off the rails (if they were ever on them in the first place, which is a question in itself) that they can't even be regarded as part of the Body of Christ -period. They are so deep into the occult and New Age that they can not be regarded as remotely Christian in any shape or form. Israel has many groups like this in the NAR lunatic fringe. As time goes by and they become ever more removed from Scripture their behaviour follows suit. Someone posted me a prime example of this today.
Since last week or so, Michael Nissim, who has partnered with me in NARWatch Israel for the last couple of years has left the core team. What this means is that I alone am now responsible for editorial and content decisions.
What this doesn't mean is that Michael will not be posting stuff on NARWatch Israel or that I won't be putting up any of his content. Far from it. If the overall content is good and fits the mandate I don't mind putting up stuff even where I might disagree with some of the positions taken, though I would include a statement to that effect.
This is not a breach in our friendship, but a change in the way we work together. It just gives me the freedom to express myself through NARWatch on those subjects we disagree on where they touch on discernment issues without treading on Michael's toes or anyone writing in wondering if he has changed his views or whatever.
Michael has done a lot of good work in making Hebrew speakers aware of the horrors that have been lurking in our midst undetected and exposing to the Hebrew speaking Body the false apostles and false prophets who have sown so much destruction and false teachings into the Body and who have caused incalculable damage to the cause of Christ. We very much expect that Michael will continue to do that as and when he is able and we look forward to continuing to work with him in this amended working arrangement.
Below are Michael's own words on the matter:
Dear NARWatch supporters,
I’ve been part of NARWatch for a few years. I’ve maintained the Hebrew NARWatch (found here: http://narwatch-israel.blogspot.com/) and wrote most of the articles on it; and I’ve done practically all the videos on the NARWatch YouTube channel up to this point — a few of these addressed to Hebrew speakers. In fact, I’ve had the privilege of producing what is probably the first discernment video ever produced in Hebrew, “Good Company”.
But now I’m leaving NARWatch. Andy, the founder of NARWatch, wishes to express his views on subjects he and I do not agree on. Andy holds to the PreWrath view of the timing of the rapture, while I hold to PreTrib (I’m also “Once Saved Always Saved” while Andy isn’t, though this has been less of an issue). Up to now I’ve tried to prevent Andy from expressing himself regarding PreWrath on the NARWatch website and public forums, because being part of NARWatch, I felt it misrepresented me. To be clear, I think it’s ok for anyone to express their own views on their own blogs or under their own names. It’s only that I didn’t want NARWatch to link to websites or promote views we didn’t both agree on. Andy, however, thinks the timing of the rapture and other issues we disagree on are important to address from an anti-NAR or discernment context as well. Therefore we’re parting ways as far as the discernment work is concerned: Andy will continue NARWatch while I’m backing off for now. I’d like to state that even if I don’t fully agree with the necessity of this move, I take it as from the Lord.
In addition, and without giving too much detail, Andy has some ministry associations which I have a growing difference with. Perhaps stepping back can prevent future tensions.
That said, it’s important for me to state that Andy is a good friend to me. He takes me out every week for cheaper grocery shopping outside of town (since I don’t have a car) where we also discuss discernment issues over a coffee break. That way I get my family’s shopping for the week and save on food expenses. Andy has also bailed us out of some sticky situations with his car on a number of occasions - medical emergencies, flooded streets etc. Andy and I will most probably continue exchanging information and ideas, and he expressed his willingness to publish anti-NAR materials that I might produce on his NARWatch websites and video channel. We still see eye to eye on many scriptural issues.
Andy has greatly served the body here in israel in being the first one to identify the NAR and fully comprehend the danger of it for the Israeli congregations. May God bless Andy’s work and all of you who support what we’re doing.
Blessings in Yeshua,
Elder at Nahariya Messianic Congregation
Some time ago I came across a wonderful collection of testimonies from people who had escaped the NAR, or Apostolic-Prophetic Movement as it is also called. Some of these testimonies are very disturbing as people suffered terrible spiritual and emotional abuse. By the descriptions, even when the congregations and leaders are not named specifically, I can recognize several of them. Other ones are named and have direct relevance for Israeli believers, as these same organisations and "ministries" are operating in, or connected with, NAR entities in Israel. For those who wish to read some of these testimonies they can be found by clicking here.
Below are some screenshots from May 2020's CBN Night of Promise broadcast. What is interesting here is just who certain Israeli and messianic spiritual "leaders" are prepared to approvingly associate with in order to grab a little air time and media exposure. Birds of a feather really do flock together. Even if it's a shock for some to see certain names on this list alongside the Israeli and other NARpostles and false prophets/teachers. Not even one of the Israeli or messianic contingent on this video surprises us, we can assure you. A few of the names are unfamiliar to me.

Some time ago I was glad to see that Amir Tsarfati, an Israel-based tour guide and populist current events commentator, appeared to have come out against the New Apostolic Reformation or NAR.
Since then however he has become a "person of interest" for NARWatch Israel as I began to notice some doctrinal inconsistencies and recently some strange and aberrant, even unethical behaviour as well as a clear set of double standards under which he appears to be operating.
