The problem with cults is that it is hard to convince people that they actually teach really bizarre or far-fetched doctrines. It’s hard to reconcile that they push such illogical concepts on people contrary to human reason or biblical truths.
THE NEW BREED DOCTRINE
One such cult is the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) who believe they will raise raise up a generation known as the New Breed. This New Breed doctrine teaches that a generation of Christians will become “divine” or “God in human flesh” and will manifest Christ here on earth with powerful signs, wonders and judgments to cleanse the church and the world of all sin so Christ can return.
WHY SHOULD WE CARE ABOUT THIS NEW BREED NONSENSE?
The reason why it is important to familiarize yourself with this teaching is because it is EVERYWHERE. You will see this theology emerge again and again in NAR revivals or in their attempt to promote conferences. You can detect it behind the theology of very popular movements that try to hide their theological ties to the NAR.
- You see this in Lakewood Church (their worship label is ‘New Breed’).
- Hillsong’s Bobbie Houston believes her sisterhood will raise up a generation that will usher in Christ’s return.
- Lou Engle and Bethel Church were no exception to New Breed hysteria in their latest Azusa Now revival attempt in 2016. Lou Engle Responded to ‘The Call’ in his attempt to summon the New Breed (Engle calls them the ‘Jesus Movement’ and the Sons of Thunder) to be made manifest at this event.
There are sermons, books and sessions teaching this subject by popular NAR teachers such such as Paul Caine, Bob Jones, Todd Bentley, Patricia King, Matt Sorger, Lou Engle and so on. One person particular who really popularised this notion was NAR “Prophet” Rick Joyner.
