Is the Modern Prophetic Movement Duplicating These Ancient Heresies?

What Was Montanism?

Montanism was a Christian movement that emerged in the second century, around the middle of the second century A.D, in Phrygia, a region in modern-day Turkey. It is named after its founder, Montanus. Montanism is often described as a heretical movement by mainstream Christianity because it diverged from the beliefs and practices of the early Christian communities in significant ways.

Montanus and his followers, including two women named Prisca (or Priscilla) and Maximilla, claimed to be directly inspired by the Holy Spirit and to receive new prophetic revelations. Montanists considered these revelations to be authoritative and on par with or even surpassing the teachings of Jesus and the apostles.

The elder Simpson had a life-changing encounter with the Holy Spirit in the 1960s and, as he shared this experience, he became a part of the worldwide charismatic renewal, serving in leadership with icons such as Don Basham, Bob Mumford and Derek Prince.
