Origins of the New Apostolic Reformation

Share this page: 


This movement, the New Apostolic Reformation, began through a handful of leading figures of the group, such as John Alexander Dowie (1847-1907),  John G. Lake (1870-1935) and William Branham (1909-1965), who had healing ministries, among other things. They are counted among the so-called “God’s generals.” It is important to study these people as their personalities and life stories are curious to say the least. Nevertheless, their “anointings” are much sought-after by Bill Johnson.

He is in the process of building a museum in their honor, saying that God told him that if he would honor them, then he would receive their anointing. Students of Bethel’s School of Supernatural Ministry make it a practice to lay on the graves of these figures to “soak up their anointing.”

If, indeed, ministries like Bethel Church base their teachings on these people, it might be legitimate to question their practices.
