Is Perry Stone a False Prophet?
Who is Perry Stone and what is he teaching?
I only recently heard of him and the more I read, the more I realize that Perry Stone is a false prophet and a wolf in sheep's clothing. The fact that he teaches on TBN is a RED FLAG but worse than that, one of his mentors is a Jesuit priest!
The Lord Jesus Christ tells us, 'Let no man deceive you', so it is up to us to be on guard about false teachers and the like. If we are not reading the Scriptures (the King James version and not the corrupt modern versions) and obeying the Truth, we will be deceived.
Below are comments and then more info on Perry Stone for you to review and prayerfully consider.
May the Truth be revealed, may the lies be exposed, may the deceived wakeup, may the sinner repent, may the lost get saved and may the Lord Jesus Christ be glorified I pray!
"Paul gives endtime disciples the criteria to determine false from genuine:
· False teachers and false prophets have their minds set on earthly things, and earthly fulfillment of endtime prophecies.
· False teachers glory in their shame, transforming lawlessness into grace and keeping the precepts of the law into legalism.
· False teachers, false apostles, false prophets work for money and the acquisition of the things of this world; they work for their bellies, and they have appetites that are never satisfied.
Pause for a moment and look out over Christendom and see how many prophets or prophecy pundits have their minds set on earthly things and earthly fulfillments of prophecies about the endtime recovery of Israel from the North Country. Some of today’s false prophets - Perry Stone is a prime example - teach that the return of Russian Jews to the modern nation of Israel is the fulfillment of these prophecies. Others have even more fanciful teachings - the Armstrong splinters - claiming that the United States and Britain [all of the English speaking peoples] are endtime Israel and that these peoples will go into national captivity and will be recovered from this captivity when Christ Jesus returns... is it possible to have one’s mind set on earthly things to a greater extent than is the mind of the prophecy pundit who claims that the fulfillment of an endtime recovery of Israel requires that, first, a United Europe take captive the English speaking peoples? What book are these false pundits reading? Certainly not the Bible, which nowhere mentions Rome in conjunction with endtime events."

"I would call him a false prophet. He has not been accurate. He is also a false teacher.. see below. The meal does not heal.
Paula White: "I believe that as you take communion that there is protection through that blood. Then the bible declares that the blood not only saves us, not only protects us, but it also provides for us. You said there's a couple that we know very dear that had a financial need."
Perry Stone: "Yes!"
Paula White: "And their father, a great pastor, pastor Scott told them God gave him a revelation."
Perry Stone: "Yes."
Paula White: "To take communion once a day."
Perry Stone: "He said, 'Take it everyday and as you're praying thank God for blessing you financially. Thank Him that that's part of the provision. They needed $50,000 and they got an amazing, remarkable $50,000 miracle, this couple did!"
Paula White... "Call that toll free number! We want you to get the 'Meal That Heals!'"

"... I used to really like Perry Stone, myself. However, you have to put your discernment cap on and be cautious. It seems that Perry, along with some other prophecy teachers, have grown fat by packaging their "special revelations and insights"; and you only learn of them by buying the books, magazines, videos or attending the conferences, etc. He is charismatic and believes in special revelations that are being given to him and his father-which many are not shared with the public until "after they come to pass". God reveals His plans to His servants for a reason, NOT to be kept secret and revealed AFTERWARDS. Who does that glorify-God or the "visionary".
It is very easy to get caught up in an intoxicating spiral of searching for "hidden knowledge" only revealed to a few. Perry is WOF and his associations with folks like the false prophetess Paula White a wolf that has infiltrated the church. She IS apostate, a must see video: http://www.rr-bb.com/showthread.php?t=38918 This video SHOCKED me. What fellowship does light have with darkness, Perry needs to rebuke her and not associate with her because he gives her credence by associating and sharing a stage with her.
Recently, I bought "Teen You Can Serve God", a message by Perry. Upon listening and reviewing it first before sharing it with my son, it went way off track saying young people have to be "annointed", and talked about passing the annointing down through the generations, and other extra Biblical statements of his early experiences in camp meetings-I threw it in the trash.
Again...in these last days, we MUST use caution and discernment. There are many jewels and nuggets we can glean from scripture. The Bible IS built precept upon precept with layers we can peel back and learn from. It is exciting to re-learn our Jewish roots of our faith-but the danger is when there is an exaggerating of their finds, and then "charging to share the information".
If Perry really believed in "a meal that heals"-you certainly wouldn't have to buy his kit from him to benefit. If he really believed this and wanted people to be healed, he could show how a person can simply take communion in their home using wine and bread.
Again-I began getting very uncomfortable with some preachers I respected in their early days, when their ministry took on an image of money changers and selling of "blessings". There were too many extra Biblical revelations and exaggerations being made by many prophecy teachers today and it has become as addictive as drugs to many. They need more and more hidden knowledge and revelation and jump on every message that is made without using discernment and the Word to verify."

Perry Stone in the early part of his Manna-Fest Program # 354 Journey to the Underworld Series Pt. 5 "More Secrets of Paradise " - (Direct Download) cites the Apostle Paul in 1 Thessalonians 4:14 to prove the dead are not really dead, they are in heaven with Jesus, and will return with Jesus at the rapture. Let's examine what Paul is really teaching.
1 Th 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.What does Paul mean by "others which have no hope"? This is an important point I will let Paul explain:
1 Cor 15:12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?You see, there were some who did not believe in the resurrection from the dead (see also Matt. 22:23, Mark 12:18, Acts 23:8), they believed that the dead were perished forever, that they were not in heaven in spirit form, they were dead. Those who believed this are the "others which have no hope" in 1 Thess 4:13. They believed the dead were eternally lost. This notion sets the context that Paul gives for 1 Thess 4:14-18.
1 Cor 15:13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
1 Cor 15:14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
1 Cor 15:15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
1 Cor 15:16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
1 Cor 15:17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
1 Cor 15:18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
1 Cor 15:19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
1 Th 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.Now, in what sense does Jesus also "bring" the dead with Him? Well, Paul is explaining to his audience that when Jesus returns, the dead will not remain dead in the grave as they suppose, they will, in fact, be resurrected to join the living:
1 Th 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.The same kind of language is found in Hebrews and Ezekiel:
1 Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
1 Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
1 Th 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Heb 13:20 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,Therefore, this is how verse 14 should be understood:
Ezek 37:12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
Ezek 37:13 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
1 Th 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him [up out of the grave, from the dead].So Paul is dispelling the notion that some had that the dead could not be saved, because they denied the possibility of resurrection. By teaching there will be a resurrection from the dead, because Jesus was resurrected, Paul was comforting his audience, so that they could comfort each other about the blessed hope of resurrection from the dead.
And just where exactly will the saints be with the Lord after the resurrection?
John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.John says that the Father's house is where Jesus will take the saints at the second coming. So Paul in 1 Thess 4:14 is NOT saying that Jesus brings the souls of dead saints from heaven back to earth at His return, rather he is telling those who doubt the resurrection, that Jesus will surely resurrect the dead and bring them and the living righteous with Him to the Father's house, the New Jerusalem. So after the resurrection, then they will ever be with the Lord.
John 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am [the Father's house], there ye may be also.John 14:4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.John 14:5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we [Jesus and His bride, the church] will come unto him [the Father], and make our abode with him [in the Father's house].
Perry Stone's teaching that the dead are not really dead is actually repeating Satan's lie in the garden of Eden:
Gen 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
Perry Stone - The Rapture and Firstfruits
Perry Stone in his Manna-Fest Program # 356 Rapture & Law of First Fruits Series Pt. 2- "Controversy About the Rapture" - (Direct Download) teaches that the yet future secret rapture is to be equated with the firstfruits of the harvest, followed later by the main harvest (Rev 14), and then the gleaning of the four corners of the field, which represents the Jewish remnant. Scripture clearly contradicts this teaching. Note the following:1 Cor 15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
1 Cor 15:21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
1 Cor 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
1 Cor 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
1 Cor 15:24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.The firstfruits of the resurrection is specifically identified to be Christ Himself, nearly 2000 years ago, in verses 20 and 23. Then, as verse 23 makes plain, at His second coming the whole of the righteous dead in Christ are resurrected. There is no future secret rapture of saints taught in this passage that precedes the second coming.Now note the following description of Passover, 14,15 and 16 Nisan:Lev 23:4 These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.
Lev 23:5 In the fourteenth day of the first month [Nisan] at even is the Lord's passover.
Lev 23:6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.
Lev 23:7 In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein [15 Nisan to be a sabbath].
Lev 23:8 But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD seven days: in the seventh day is an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.
Lev 23:9 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Lev 23:10 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest:
Lev 23:11 And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath [16 Nisan] the priest shall wave it.
- On 14 Nisan Jesus was crucified and buried.
- On 15 Nisan, a sabbath day, Jesus rested in the tomb.
- On 16 Nisan (firstfruits) Jesus was resurrected, and Paul calls Him the firstfruits:1 Cor 15:20, 23.Interestingly enough, note what happened after the crucifixion of Christ:Mat 27:50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
Mat 27:51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
Mat 27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
Mat 27:53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.The graves of a select group of saints were opened when Christ died on 14 Nisan. This corresponds to the selection of the firstfruits of the barley harvest, the first to be harvested. However those saints were not resurrected until after Christ Himself was raised early on 16 Nisan, the day the firstfruits sheaf was waved by the priest. The saints raised from the dead on 16 Nisan comprised the harvested firstfruits sheaf, waved triumphantly in victory over the grave by Jesus our High Priest.
So, the firstfruits of the resurrection harvest happened on 16 Nisan nearly two thousand years ago with Christ's resurrection. It is not an event that awaits a future fulfillment.
In his Manna-Fest Program # 358, Rapture & Law of First Fruits Series Pt. 4- "Harvest, First Fruits, Rain and the Rapture" - (Direct Download), Perry refers to the Hebrew marriage customs, and briefly mentions that the groom builds a chamber in his father's house. When it is completed and the time is right, the groom, a symbol of Christ, escorts his bride, a symbol for the church, from her house to the father of the groom's house, symbolic of the New Jerusalem, in heaven, to the chamber He has prepared.Take note that there is only one wedding feast, for the entire bride of Christ, and those who are not prepared when the groom comes for His bride will be locked out, as the parable of the ten virgins demonstrates (Matt 25:1-13). There is no second chance to be included in the wedding feast.So, as John 14:1-6 states, Jesus is preparing a place (for His bride) in His Father's house. And when He returns, He will escort His bride to the marriage feast, which will not be held at the bride's house (earth), but at God the Father's house, New Jerusalem in heaven, where the preparations have been made. This is where the righteous spend the millennium, in heaven, not on earth:Rev 20:4 ... and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.Perry also briefly mentions the parable of the wheat and the tares (Matt 13:24-30, 36-43). Note that according to the parable, the tares (the wicked), are gathered first and burned. The wheat (the righteous) are not harvested first, leaving behind the lost unbelievers to wonder what happened, as the secret rapture proponents teach. The parable teaches clearly that the wicked are all slain at the second coming, there will not be one of the wicked left alive:Mat 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
Mat 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
Mat 13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Mat 13:43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.
Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Jesus directly contradicts the false secret rapture teaching, if you have ears to hear.

Received this email & link today for a concerned reader. My comment? Once a charlatan, always a charlatan.
I was aghast at this page on Perry Stone's Website. Thought you might want to comment it on it. I did but somehow it didn't get posted. I probably did something wrong when I signed up. Its just wrong of him to do this and lead all these people who earnestly need guidance to be led astray by this kind of blasphemy. For his own sake too. I believe he thinks he's doing God's bidding somehow . Sometimes we can't see something that others can. I feel if I keep quite about it . It somehow makes me guilty too. If you see something and don't tell the person then its on you, but if you see and don't say anything then its on you.
Since I can't warn people I hope you can put it on your blog.
Our ministry recently joined with the House of David, a Messianic Jewish group led by Rabbi Curt Landry, to adopt a large olive grove in the Galilee region of Israel. This is in order to help preserve the precious olive trees, provide work for Jewish people in Israel, and use oil from the grove to produce special anointing oil based upon the Biblical patterns found in Exodus.
Some people have been concerned that we are disobeying the Word of the Lord about reproducing the oil, based on Exodus 30:25-33, which teaches this oil is not to be duplicated, poured on the flesh, and not to be put on a stranger – only the priests. First, olive oil was used in the process of anointing both priests and kings under the Old Covenant. We read that Aaron and his sons were anointed with this special oil (Exod. 30:31), and Saul, David and Solomon were all anointed with some form of oil as a sign of God separating them to be kings over Israel (I Sam. 15:1; 16:12; I Kings 1:34). We must understand the purpose of God’s instruction in Exodus 30 as it relates to not duplicating the oil, the setting, and the narrative of the Exodus and ancient Israel. As Israel journeyed through the wilderness, there were several times when the people rose up against Moses and Aaron. On one occasion, a man named Korah, a descendent from the tribe of Levi (the priestly tribe), made an attempt with 250 princes to overthrow Moses and Aaron, accusing Moses and Aaron of pride in their “holiness” (Num 16:1-3). In a spiritual challenge, Korah and 250 leaders were instructed to bring their own censers and placed incense in their censor, while Moses and Aaron took their incense from the sacred incense at the tabernacle. Korah and his rebellious men were all slain (Numbers 16). Since only a true High Priest or his son could offer incense, Korah was judged for offering the incense.
On another occasion, two sons of Aaron were slain for offering “strange fire,” or fire that did not come from the altar of God (Lev. 10:1). Afterward, God confirmed Aaron’s priesthood before all of the people when Aaron’s rod began blossoming and producing almonds at the door of the tabernacle (Numbers 17). The incense was to be set apart for the TRUE priesthood and not to be replicated, as there was a danger that a rebel like Korah, who wanted to replace the true priests, could duplicate the holy oils, incense, and other items and use them in the wrong manner. God only honored true priests and the holy incense. After this incident, the Lord commanded that the anointing oil be set aside for the priests and was not to be duplicated. But what was the reason for this instruction? So a future rebel would not duplicate it and announce he was the true priest by anointing himself with the sacred oil.
When David’s son, Absalom, attempted to seize his father’s throne, Absalom rode on the king’s mule (II Sam. 19:9; I Kings 1:38; 1:44). The king’s mule was set aside for the king. Absalom knew if he was spotted on his father’s mule it would appear to the multitudes that he was now the king of Israel. If an insurrection arose against a future priest in Israel, then the oil, incense, and other elements of the apothecary could be used and the rebels could announce they were the “true priesthood.” God was not protecting the oil, but was actually protecting His priesthood from an internal or external rebellion. When we read the Torah and read certain laws and restrictions, we must remember that Christ is the fulfillment of the law. For example, the law commands that a male child be circumcised on the eighth day or he is not in covenant with God and will be cut off from among his people (Gen. 17:14). However, in the New Testament circumcision was not a sign of the New Covenant, despite the fact that many Jewish believers argued to the contrary, and taught Gentiles must be circumcised. Jews continued to be circumcised but Gentiles were not under the same obligation (Rom. 2:25-28). New Testament circumcision was of the heart and spirit and not the flesh (Rom. 25:29). Does this make Paul a heretic or a false prophet just because he changed the “law of Moses” concerning circumcision? Why weren’t the New Testament Gentiles “cut off” the way the Lord warned a man would be if he was not circumcised? Why did God graft the Gentiles in if they were being disobedient to the commandment of circumcision? The only obligation the Gentiles had to keep was to “abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well” (Acts 15:19). Even the Gentiles eventually met for worship on the first day of the week, the day in which Christ was raised from the dead (Acts 20:7; I Cor. 16:2).
Now back to the anointing oil. We are told in James 5 that if a believer is sick, we are to “anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord” (James 5:14-15). We assume this is just normal olive oil which was common in the Mediterranean in that day. When a Jewish Rabbi and believer and his son (a Jewish chemist) received the insight to mix the compounds of Scripture with pure olive oil, some suggest this is wrong. However, the oil was for priests. Notice what the Bible teaches about believers: “And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever” (Rev. 1:6). The Greek can read a “kingdom of priests.” Under the Old Covenant no common person could slay a sacrifice, sprinkle blood on the altar, and enter the holy place to offer incense, light the Menorah or be anointed with the oil. However, as a kingdom of priests we now offer our sacrifices of praise (Heb. 13:15), we are able to apply the blood of Christ through our confession (Rev. 12:11), and enter the presence of God through the words of our prayer. The incense on the golden altar represented our prayers going up to God (Psalms 141:2). It is our spiritual position as priests unto God that enables a Jewish believer to prepare this oil and have other believers use it for the purpose of anointing a person! The actual anointing of the Spirit abides in us now (I John 2:27). Under the Old Covenant only a priest could enter certain areas of the Temple. Today our bodies are the Temple of the Holy Spirit (I Cor. 3:16). There is a restitution of all things predicted prior to the return of the Lord (Acts 3:21). We have witnessed the restoration of Israel, Jerusalem as the capital, and return of the Jews from the nations.
We have witnessed the revival of teaching on receiving daily communion the way it was received in the first century. Early church history points out that women (deaconesses) were heavily involved in the ministries of the congregation, and women of God are being restored to ministry in this season. Likewise, the oil of anointing is being restored in these days, as a part of the restitution of all things.
