The original posting of this article was about 8 months ago but it caught my eye as I have been researching Karen Wheaton and The Ramp.
Perhaps millions of young Americans (as well as vast numbers of youth around the world) are being brainwashed by a large and growing network of apostate “Church” leaders whom Satan is using to create a generation of heretics. Karen Wheaton (see video, above) is just one of those whom Satan is using to destroy multitudes of souls in this generation.
Before reading the remainder of this essay, I urge you to watch the brief (2-1/2 minutes) video, above.
In the above video, Wheaton admitted that, for at least the past 10 years, she has been part of a certain “movement” ~ which, she says, is “flowing…in our nation and, really, around the world.” She then proceeded to name a few key individuals who also are a part of that same “movement.” Wheaton’s association with, and endorsement of, those individuals and organizations, reveals her own apostate condition. Of course, one needs to be familiar with the teachings and works of the individuals whom Wheaton named in that video, in order to judge whether those persons connected with that “movement,” of which Wheaton claims to be a part, are heretics and apostates.
If you are not familiar with the following individuals and organizations (which Wheaton endorsed in her speech), I strongly urge that you should spend at least several hours researching them, on the Internet:
- Lou Engle THE CALL
- Mike Bickle IHOP (International House of Prayer)
- Rick Joyner MORNINGSTAR
- Bill Johnson BETHEL church, in Redding, California
- Banning Liebscher JESUS CULTURE (based at Bethel church church in Redding)
The following will help you get started with that research (click on the underlined links):
Heidi Baker (who was in the Bill Johnson video, above, at Johnson’s church)
JESUS CULTURE (40 min. video ~ but WELL worth the time to watch)
The above links are not even the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. That “movement,” of which Karen Wheaton said she is a part, is truly massive. Although it is not the only such “movement” which Satan has raised up to deceive the contemporary “Church,” yet, it is one of the largest and most influential (in terms of the impact those persons and organizations have had).
Wheaton started and still runs an operation called, “The Ramp,” in Alabama. In almost every video I’ve seen of The Ramp, the physical environment resembles a night-club atmosphere, where dance and music performances are staged, complete with fog machines, strobe lights, and colored stage lights; and where everything is high-energy. Needless to say, young people flock to The Ramp in droves. That’s what The Ramp is designed to do: attract the youth.
But The Ramp has evolved into something even larger. The Ramp now conducts a so-called “school of ministry,” which is named, the “Ramp School of Ministry” (RSM). There, would-be ministers are indoctrinated in the heresies which Wheaton promotes. In addition to all the Occult-type activities which are prevalently seen amongst that “movement” which Wheaton is associated with, the underlying doctrine apparently embraced by the majority (if not all) of the people involved in that movement, is something called, “Dominionism.” In a nutshell, Dominionism teaches that Jesus Christ is not going to return to earth until that the Church has subjugated the whole world to the obedience of Christ! (There is no Rapture, in Dominionism.) The idea of world-domination is exactly what is taught by Islam as well as by Roman Catholicism. It is little wonder why that Charismatic Dominionists (like Wheaton, et al) are so willing to join forces with the Roman Catholic Church.
Many Bible prophecy teachers have long believed that the kingdom of Antichrist will entail a certain kind of global religion which shall essentially be a syncretism (blending, unifying) of world religions. Trends in the realm of mainstream Protestantism, throughout the past decade and more, certainly do seem to point to just such an outcome. Even such seemingly “conservative” personalities as the (Baptists) James Robison and Beth Moore (and many, many others) have fallen (literally) in line with the march back to Rome; which lately appears more like a stampede.
Given, the great wealth of information that is readily available, pertaining to what is happening amongst the Christian churches in America, there is NO EXCUSE for anyone to remain ignorant of the RAMPant apostasy that is sweeping Biblical Christianity from the churches in America!
You have been warned. There is a great separation which is even now occurring, whereby true Christians are being called out from amongst the apostates. I like to describe what is happening in America’s churches, by the following analogy. In a basket of apples, rotting (or rotten) apples should be promptly removed from the basket, to prevent the rot from spreading to the bulk of apples in the basket. But in the case that rotten apples are not promptly removed, and the rot thus spreads to many other apples in the basket; it is then the wisest approach not to attempt to remove all of the bad apples, but to remove the few remaining good apples, from the basket of rotten apples. So it is in the Church: as the Scripture says, in 1 Corinthians 5:2-7:
“And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, to deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us…”
If you will take the time to research these things, as I urged that you should, then you will very soon discover just how rotten, and how pervasive, is that “movement” which Karen Wheaton admitted to embrace. This matter is deadly serious. And it is to the point where that discerning Christians MUST SEPARATE themselves from the apostates who persist to be led astray by so many wolves in sheep’s clothing. It is a parade of charlatans and fools, which is madly dancing their way to the gates of hell.
