Dr Petrie teaches a version that appears to be designed to appeal more to former Roman Catholics and High Church Anglicans than, say, the version taught by Joyner or Bickle.
The goal of the NAR is neatlysummed up in the title of a bookby ‘Apostle’ Chuck Pierce:
Time to Defeat the Devil.
The subtitle is:‘Strategies to Win theSpiritual War’
However, the Bible teaches that Christ has already defeated Satan and that He alone will bind him.
Characteristics of the End-Time One-World Church
To fully appreciate what the New Apostolic Reformation is all about, we need to takevery seriously the warnings that our Lord gave us in Matthew 24 and the book of Revelation, as well as those given in the Epistles. They tell us that, before Christreturns, the world will adopt a counterfeit model of Christianity, a version that willfacilitate the rise of an individual known as the Antichrist. His name may soundforbidding but initially he will likely appear to be as meek as Moses, as wise asSolomon, and as imbued with miraculous powers as Elisha or even Jesus. The wholeworld will greet this man, not realizing what lies in his heart.The coming one world religion will be led initially by the False Prophet mentioned inthe book of Revelation. The doctrine that he teaches will, at a superficial level, beidentical to that of Christianity, but it will be built on signs and wonders, not on faith.Jesus warned of this when he asked, “Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh,shall he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8).John records that he was subjected to a number of shocks in the course of the eventsdescribed in the book of Revelation, but none of them seemed to shake him as muchas the sight of the woman “drunken with the blood of the saints” (17:6). This was thefalse Christianity that will rule the world in the End Time, the fallen “woman”symbolizing in this instance, as in others, a false religion. John was so shocked that heexclaimed “and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration” (KJV) or “Andwhen I saw her, I marveled with great amazement” (NKJV). Acknowledging theshock, the angel who was with John asked him, “Wherefore didst thou marvel?” Theshock came, not at the sight of the false religion – for John had seen many of these – but at the
of the false religion, an incredible counterfeit version of trueChristianity.
