Steve Strang Responds to Mike Bickle’s Personal Statement Amid Investigation

On Dec. 12, Mike Bickle released his personal statement about the allegations that were brought against him back in October. On his most recent Strang Report, Stephen Strang discussed how Christians can prayerfully and wisely discern what is happening in the midst of this case.

Speaking through Larry Tomczak’s recent article “5 Ways We Should Respond to Mike Bickle’s Statement,” and the statement posted by Bickle, Strang brought clarity to the situation.

“These things are very complicated. I believe that this kind of thing is also a spiritual attack,” Strang says, as he encouraged audiences to look at the circumstance from all possible angles, including that the enemy may have plans to bring down the International House of Prayer Kansas City. “It’s something that the enemy would want to squash. To me, what’s happening is almost like a really, really nasty church split. And there are churches where people have gotten offended, tried to oust the pastor, brought charges either true or false, or in some cases, exaggerated, and tried to bring down a ministry. And I’m very, very concerned about that.”

Man Who Spent 23 Minutes in Hell: The Last Thing Jesus Said to Me

God gave me an out-of-body experience and showed me hell in a vision. As I was traveling up a dark tunnel out of hell, I could see countless numbers of people who had died on the earth falling down this whirlwind tunnel into hell. The Lord allowed me to feel just a small piece of His heart toward the unsaved. I couldn’t bear it. The anguish He feels for so many people going to hell was overwhelming. He died for every one of these people so they would not have to go there. I looked at them with such sorrow and felt such urgency in my heart to warn people of this horrible place—a place of eternal torment that most are headed for. I truly felt in my heart that we do not have much time left before the Lord returns.

We as Christians need to know and feel the urgency to warn others of hell. If they don’t repent of their sins and receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior, they will not avoid this terrifying place of torment. Paul said in 2 Corinthians 5:11a (NKJV), “Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men.”  Paul was conveying to us that since he understood the judgment to come on all unbelievers, he had an increased desire to persuade men of the way of salvation. We should possess this same desire.

Colossians 3:6b says,the wrath of God is coming on the children of disobedience.” Knowing this should motivate Christians to pray more fervent prayers for the unsaved. We can pray for their heart to be open to the gospel, for the Lord to send laborers to them to warn them of hell and to give them dreams and visions help keep back their soul from the pit (Job 33).

Beware These 10 Heretical Views Regarding Jesus

Having a biblical view of Jesus during this Christmas season is essential. Unfortunately, many people in Christianity have erroneous concepts: Some think He was a created being, some think He was just a good teacher, some think He was fully divine and not human and some believe He was fully human and not God.

Jesus asked the disciples, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” (Matt. 16:13b, NKJV). It was important to Him that men correctly understood who He was. To know precisely meant a blessing, and not to know indicated you could not be blessed by Father God.

The great doctors of the early church who fought erroneous views regarding Jesus made the correct belief that knowing who Christ was of primary importance. The beginning of the text of the Athanasian Creed is as follows:
