John Crowder and the rise of the New Mystics.  There is nothing new to what Crowder teaches.  Only that he has found people who are prepared to put up with his strange behaviour.  Even more bizarre is that he has in fact started his own church.  How many comprise his church is unknown.  The fact that there are people willing and open to what he teaches draws some disturbing questions.  The fact that there is no basis for his teachings should make us question why people listen.  The Bible clearly says that in the last days many will depart from the faith and give heed to deceiving spirits.  That time has clearly come upon us.  Tragically  those who believe they can toking the Holy Spirit in the same way as someone can smoke weed shows how far and how deep this deception goes.  Where self seeking pleasure becomes the overwhelming factor in whatever they do.  Their end?  The same as all mystics.  Eventual delusion and frustration.  For the lie  is only good as the act they play out. 

Some scriptures used to manipulate the flock (some might be sheep or goats) into staying in an unholy house and to try to lure born-again believers into the devil’s house (I’m not referring only to the main stream cults obvious to not be in, but all ungodly houses that have a form of godliness, but deny the power thereof and even carry the Christian titles).

2 Cor 11:13-15.

Lets look at a few commonly used to attempt to maintain control:


God is bigger than: denominations, divisions, and different doctrines.
They are absolutely right, God is bigger than those things – in fact His Word is the only truth and He commands us in Jude 1:3 to earnestly contend for the faith, in Rev 18:4 to come out of her, in Rom 16:17 to mark and avoid, in Gal 1:8 (1-12) to accurse (excommunicate if possible) and 2 Tim 3:16,17.

Rom 16:17
Now I beseech you, brethren, MARK THEM which cause DIVISIONS and OFFENCES CONTRARY to the DOCTRINE which ye have learned; and AVOID them.

Eph 4:14
That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, by the sleight of men (these false churches OR individual tares/false Christs/apostles/prophets/teachers), and CUNNING CRAFTINESS, whereby THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE;

Jud 1:3
Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should EARNESTLY CONTEND FOR THE FAITH which was once delivered unto the saints.
Jud 1:4
For there are certain men CREPT IN UNAWARES, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, UNGODLY, TURNING THE GRACE OF OUR GOD INTO LASCIVIOUSNESS, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Ti 4:1
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith (pretenders, false converts, goats, tares), giving heed to SEDUCING SPIRITS, and DOCTRINES OF DEVILS; Speaking lies in HYPOCRISY; having their CONSCIENCE SEARED with a hot iron;

so we learn a lot of things here – unity at any cost? is that what Rom 16:17 says? no, this verse is speaking about these false Christ’s churches and the tares, notice it says CONTRARY to the sound doctrine of the bible (it does not say contrary to the doctrine of Satan, which is turning the grace of God into lasciviousness), we are warned about many different doctrines (doctrines of devils and seducing spirits – demonically influenced) by the sleight of men who are ungodly, hypocrites, seared conscience, cunning, crafty and they are just waiting to deceive you. Notice it also says they were UNINVITED (crept in unaware; the lost are evangelized and then if they become born again, God draws them to His Church rather than the local church or fellowship casting pearls before swine, in other words a true shepherd is not supposed to invite wolves or let goats in). We are also told to MARK and AVOID (that isn’t to say we are not to reprove, rebuke, correct, etc 2 Tim 3:16, 17). Notice also we are told to EARNESTLY CONTEND.

here is God’s final word on the matter as spoken through the Apostle Paul

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would PERVERT the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
(Gal 1:6-8)

a severe warning to offenders
And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall HUMBLE himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones WHICH BELIEVE IN ME, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were DROWNED IN THE DEPTH OF THE SEA. Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but WOE TO THAT MAN BY WHOM THE OFFENCE COMETH!
(Mat 18:3-7)


Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together (Heb 10:19,25, Matt 18:20, 1 Co 11:20).
Who is ourselves? Paul tells us a few verses before – born-again believers (Mark 3:31-35).
Think about that next time an ungodly minister, or anyone deceived tries to lie to you. God does not want born-again believers to be assembling at the devil’s house (this could be a building or other meeting place). You don’t need the devil’s permission to leave his house re: blessing and releasing. Finally as an aside, notice the rest of Heb 10:25 says “but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”

2Ti 3:13
But evil men and SEDUCERS shall wax worse and worse, DECEIVED AND BEING DECEIVED.

“For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. For every man shall bear his own burden.” (Galatians 6:3-5).

Eph 5:11 And have NO FELLOWSHIP with the UNFRUITFUL WORKS OF DARKNESS, but rather REPROVE them.

1Co 10:21
Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.


You will lose it if you leave us, and the devil will eat you alive.
First of all Christ is the believer’s covering (Psalm 91) (if the person is truly saved and born again), of course prayers of men of God help also (notice I said men of God), and secondly you don’t want the deceitful covering of the devil, in fact you are under a curse if you remain in that house (Rev 18:4) and thirdly they must rule well (lead (edify (FEED REAL WORD OF GOD), practical needs met,reprove, correct, rebuke, Godly church discipline, protect the saints from the hirelings and wolves, not inviting them in to feast on the saints!) to be an elder, bishop etc (1 Tim 3; 5:17; Titus 1, Heb 13:17, 1 Pet 5:2-3).

Rev 18:4
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, COME OUT OF HER, my people, that ye BE NOT PARTAKER OF HER SINS, and that ye RECEIVE NOT HER PLAGUES.

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and WHAT COMMUNION HATH LIGHT WITH DARKNESS? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM, AND BE YE SEPERATE, saith the Lord, and TOUCH NOT THE UNCLEAN THING; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
(2Co 6:14-18)

Many don’t even consider the house of fellowship they enter might be of the devil and they assume just because it has a Christian tag on it, that makes it acceptable – foolishness!

see my other teaching on Come To My House – Whose House and also Temptations of Christ and His Sufferings Through His Servants.


You need to be in a church so you can be reproved, rebuked, thrown out, etc….I can agree about church growth in a righteous house by righteous ministers (Eph 4 and verses above and others), but you don’t want to be disciplined by Satan’s ministers…that would be plain stupidity and if anything they would be the ones being disciplined by you to tell them to repent. Why would you need to be disicplined if you have not done anything wrong? All Satan’s ministers want is your money and your slave labor.


We absolutely need your gifts (spiritual and physical), for without you the body is not complete, nor are you, you are robbing us and yourself. (1 Cor 14:12,26).-
Each believer is a member of the body of Christ (His Church), and each has a gift(s) given by the Holy Spirit which edifies (house, home, housetop, build) the body of Christ (universally or locally doesn’t matter) in the way that God wills it according to His will (1 Cor 12:11, 14, 18). The body of Christ, not the devil’s house and his children (the goats, hirelings, tares and false Christs/apostles/prophets, wolves etc), how welcome do you think a born-again believer’s thundering rebuke to the devil’s house to repent and seek God for His glory would be? Or call to holy living. What did they do to Stephen? They may very well do the same to any man of God that points the congregation to Christ.


Those that leave the church are leaving because they can’t handle the truth or to start their own church, those that remain are the true believers. We call it the revolving door – backsliders come in after years of running away.”
It may very well be that the believer is leaving because there is no truth there and the believer is searching for it with all of his heart as he is admonished to by the Lord Himself, and Ezek 34 and other scriptures have been revealed to the saint by God. (John 10(vs 5 especially is being fulfilled))


Church hoppers are unstable believers and can’t commit to a home church.
First of all God can and does reach people anywhere He wants to (yeah this is another one that false Christ’s/prophets/teachers/apostles twist as well to justify their false preaching to try to get person to stay in ungodly house). A home church is not always a building or even available so sometimes believers meet in homes or on internet or even just speak on phone or write each other, and church hopping is not in the bible and if it were the house of God and it was sound doctrine and Godly messages, then yes the person hopping around might be trying to find an environment and message suitable to their flesh. 1 Tim 1:10, 2 Tim 4:3, Tit 1:9; 2:1.

Edifies (house, home, housetop, build), church (a calling out, bid, call forth).

This next one I hear very often when I am sifting a local church or exhorting their believers, and tell them my story of Ezek 34 and other scriptures exhorting the believer to come out of her.

and now you’ve found your home church.
Not if its not sound doctrine the believer hasn’t.
God will feed the believer other ways in the meantime. Pr 3:5-7 (depart from evil, trust God). As mentioned above….it is very easy today to get fed from righteous ministers and if those are not available God will feed you directly in His Word and in many cases you become more fed than those inside churches. if you are in a true local church praise God.


God hates criticizers, touch not mine anointed, etc.
They will say things like this to try to put fear into the person so that the preacher can say whatever they want.
I say – Study to shew thyself approved unto God (2 Tim 2:15,16), quit drinking of the devil’s cup and listening to his lies. (1 Cor 10:21). Thankfully God put the fear of God into me and I challenged these false shepherds and leaders in first having me studying His Word for myself indepth to see if these things be so and then challenging the leaders directly (and since it was not righteous ministers they kept being stumped and angry also because they were being challenged when shown scriptures about how God’s house was to be run)

one of the first verses the Lord spoke to me over and over again when I wasn’t sure where I was going was this:
Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;

Ps 46:10.

many, and I say many do not wait on God for His timing and His way and give in to the devil’s false banquet; especially those who are in a weak season or new believers. (Mat 4:8)

God is calling you out if you are born-again and in the devil’s house, RUN for your life! (those of you who are not born-again get out also!)
And wait on Him. Get to know the real Jesus and purge out the leaven. Ro 12:1, 1 Co 5:7.
He may call you to be a watchman, or prophet and send you various places (even for a short time).

in Christ Jesus,
