Marty, I had to search NAR online -
Came up with 1) National Association of REALTORS,
2) National Association of Rocketry,
and Bingo, 3) New Apostolic Reformation (NAR)
"The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is a dominionist (Dominion Theology-ish) movement which asserts that God is restoring the lost offices of church governance, namely the offices of Prophet and Apostle.
"Leading figures in this seemingly loosely organized movement claim that these prophets and apostles alone have the power and authority to execute God's plans and purposes on earth.
"They believe they are laying the foundation for a global church, governed by themselves.
"They place a greater emphasis on dreams, visions and extra-biblical revelation than they do on the Bible, claiming that their revealed teachings and reported experiences (e.g. trips to heaven, face-to-face conversations with Jesus, visits by angels) can not be proven by the "old" Scripture."
...and the capstone to the expose/report on NAR was by Dr. John MacArthur:
"NAR, the New Apostolic Reformation. … It is like Grape Nuts – it’s not grapes and it’s not nuts.
It’s like Christian Science – it’s not Christian and it’s not scientific.
Well, the New Apostolic Reformation isn’t new, it isn’t apostolic, and it isn’t a reformation.
But it is a rapidly expanding movement being generated by some of the same old troubling false teachers and false leaders that have been around in Charismania for decades, always dishonoring the Holy Spirit, always dishonoring the Scripture, always claiming miracle signs, wonders, visions, dreams." ~ John MacArthur

Thanks for the truth. There’s other organizations like this in play. NAR is probably the only one I have seen in person, where there are people who think they are apostles and are giving the kingdom over to Jesus at His return. No rapture, no wedding feast, no tribulation!
Deniers of truth.
Bethel church in Redding California is a player.
The Bible says what He means and He means what He says!
