Ray Almgren: New Era

Ray Almgren and his wife, Renaid write on the Elijah List here saying: So, we are entering a New Era where we will see at another level and speak what we see into existence (see Romans 4:17), establishing new foundations, new order, and new developments.

So, we are about to enter a New Era! Where is that in scripture? The new era which was instituted by Jesus, when he died on the Cross and rose from the dead, was the New Testament period. The New Testament comes straight out of the Old Testament. Why should there now be a New Era? It remains unstated in scripture that there would be another new era as prophesied by Ray and Renaid.

Ray and Renaid Almgren make the usual New Apostolic Reformation mistake in placing their received words above those of scripture. They think they are using scripture but they are not drawing from scripture, they are trying to manipulate scripture to line up with their mystical revelations. The quote from Romans 4:17 says (as it is written, "A FATHER OF MANY NATIONS HAVE I MADE YOU") in the presence of Him whom he believed, even God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist. NASB. Here the Apostle Paul, a true Apostle, not a self-appointed one, speaks of Abraham being called a "Father of many nations". In the presence of God, who calls into being that which does not exist. It must be noted that it is God who calls into being that which does not exist. That is His role not Man's role. We have no authority to call anything into existence. Simple logic, even, tells us that it was called into existence at creation and we were not there then!

Why should we now be establishing new foundations, new order, and new developments. It sounds good but it is absolute rubbish. If the NAR points out that the church, as we know it today, is corrupt and ready to be discarded they need to remember the parable of the wheat and Tares. Jesus presented another parable to them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went away. But when the wheat sprouted and bore grain, then the tares became evident also. The slaves of the landowner came and said to him, 'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?' And he said to them, 'An enemy has done this!' The slaves said to him, 'Do you want us, then, to go and gather them up?' But he said, 'No; for while you are gathering up the tares, you may uproot the wheat with them. Allow both to grow together until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, "First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them up; but gather the wheat into my barn."'" Matt 13:24-30. The meaning is simple: The wheat is God's Kingdom, which is also His true church, and known as the Bride of Christ. The tares are false religionists. So the two are allowed, by God, to coexist until the time of judgement, which is the harvest.

This is the problem which the NAR has and will always have. It believes that it is the true church doing the righteous works of God. In fact it is the opposite and is doing the unrighteous works of Satan. They believe that they can control Satan and every evil spirit, yet nowhere in scripture can you find such ideas. To promote them is to work for the cause of Satan, who is the deceiver and these people are deceiving many today into thinking that they are doing the will of a righteous God. They could not be further from the truth if they tried. They are the tares spoken of in scripture.

May the scales fall from their eyes and may they wake up to the truth, which is found only in the Bible.
