Christine Caine put up this Instagram picture just a few days ago….
“Oh yes, I did lay my own hands on @joycemeyer bible & teaching notes & prayed for an impartation of that teaching anointing & revelation. It was a privilege & honor to shadow her this past week. Far more is “caught” than is ever “taught” in life!”
Faith is taught, not caught
Let’s test Christine Caine’s “impartation” against the word of God.
“Give me this power also, so that anyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.” Acts 8:19
In Acts 8, Simon the Sorcerer sees something spiritual happen through the works of the Apostles and even offered to pay for the ability to pass on the Spirit to others.
We are not suggesting that Christine Caine offered payment for this “impartation” but she seems to forget it is only Christ, the ultimate giver of every spiritual gift through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, who determines who receives the various gifts; and nowhere does scripture suggest these gifts are received through laying hands on a Bible.
In response to Caine’s behaviour, one observer stated “I believe that opening up the Bible and reading it will have a far greater blessing because it will teach you to run from false teachers like her (Joyce Meyer).”
“Faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ” Romans 10:17
God’s “teaching” and “revelation” comes to us by hearing the Word of God. We need to run from the other false teacher, Christine Caine.
“And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers.” 1 Thessalonians 2:13
