Oprah Winfrey Promotes Massive New Age
'John of God'
By David J. Stewart | December 2014
Matthew 24:11 and 1st John 4:1, “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.” ... “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
Oprah Winfrey has been promoting the satanic New Age movement for decades. A classic example is the 'John of God' fraud...
You may have seen him on Oprah, you may have read about him in her magazine, you may be one of many Salt Springers who have been to Brazil to be healed by him.
“John of God” or Joao Teixeira de Faria (or Joao de Deus—the Miracle Man-- as he’s known in Abadiania, Brazil), is coming to New York State’s lush Hudson Valley where the renowned Omega Institute (a 1940s boys’ camp in the woods) has been lucky enough to snag him for three days each year. There, about 5,000 lucky people throng to sit in his trance-like healing midst and in the healing energies of the long-gone, invisible saints he channels in.

Who is John of God? A devil man from Brazil. This alarming video states concerning John of God:
“We have the topmost world-class capable medium in medium Joao. The most recent entities that work through medium Joao were once healers, they were once doctors, they were priests. ... I have immense gratitude and respect for the entities of light who work through his body, through his instrument to create healing, to open our hearts that we can be more compassionate and loving people. ... Everyone who comes receives a healing, spiritually. ... Channeling means to allow a spirit who has passed on to use your body, your consciousness, to come through to communicate a message. It is a lot of work for a spirit to come into a man's body.”
Folks, that is demon-possession!!! Entities are demons. The Bible condemn the satanic practice of mediums (a go-between for demonic spirits to posses, influence or interact with human spirits). Mediums deal with familiar spirits (demons), which is a form of a witchcraft. Witchcraft is seeking spiritual help, power or guidance from any spiritual source other than God and the Holy Bible. Notice that child sacrifice (which would definitely include abortion) is connected with New Age practices...
Deuteronomy 18:10, “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.”
2nd Chronicles 33:6, “And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.”
The bottom line with John of God is that he is of the Devil, promoting New Age spiritism. (Please note that this has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Gospel of John.) Brazilians claim to mix Christianity with spiritism. That is demonic superstition. My friend, mixing anything with Christianity is a recipe for disaster and damnation!!! Brazilian Roman Catholics worship the dead, being extremely superstitious, burning candles and praying to the dead, even deifying Mary as a co-redeemer with Christ. There's lots of money to be made for charlatans who are willing to sell their soul to the Devil, promote false religion, and prepare the masses to receive the appearing of the soon coming Antichrist.
I have always marveled how people will outright reject the inspired Words of God in the Holy Bible, but they'll readily accept every satanic deception under the sun. This DISCOVERY documentary about John of God is really heart-breaking, seeing hundreds-of-thousands of people each year traveling to Brazil to undergo some hocus-pocus surgery by John of God. Literally, John of God shoves a medical instrument up people's nasal cavity, shaves their eyeballs, and other bizarre so-called treatments. If you watch the video link I just provided to the DISCOVERY film, you'll see that John of God (that's what his Brazilian name means) has Illuminati pyramids behind him. The New World Order is all about spiritism, witchcraft and preparing people to receive the coming Antichrist. There's also numerous Roman Catholic pictures of Jesus behind Joao. Although Joao doesn't charge any money for his services (probably for legal reasons), he makes millions of dollars a year by selling herbs, souvenirs, et cetera (so don't kid yourself, this mystical farmer DOES make money... LOTS OF MONEY!!!).
I've listened to hundreds of testimonies from people that were allegedly healed by John of God. In nearly every case they claim to have been spiritually healed, no longer being depressed, having a new appreciation for them self, or having a renewed faith in developing a spiritual path in life. Then there are many people who claim to have been literally healed of leukemia, H.I.V., et cetera. Look at this scam video, where they blur the surgery area. Why blur the area of the incision? Say what you will, such trick cinematography is the key to fooling the viewer. As the old saying goes, The hand is quicker than the eye!
Keep in mind that Satan does have some power to perform miracles...
Matthew 7:22-23, “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Satan DOESN'T have the power to heal the sick, UNLESS the sickness is caused by demonic-possession. In some cases, I believe that people are healed of their afflictions, because they are caused by demons. Satan has limited power, which God has given him. It is not coincidental that false Christ's almost always claim to have the power to do miracles. Satan can perform some lying wonders and deceptions. The false prophets in Matthew 7:21-23 were religious, preached in the name of Jesus, but still were able to cast of devils. That's interesting... Satan casting out Satan. Yes, to deceive people. Those pyramid symbols all around John of God speaks volumes about who he serves... Satan, the god of this world! Remember, Satan is a master deceiver, liar, thief, murderer and counterfeiter.
Dr. James Randi, a retired stage magician and scientific skeptic, exposes the John of God scam. The hype which Oprah Winfrey has created has compelled thousands of victims to go see John of God, hoping for healing of their afflictions. Oprah Winfrey is extremely deceitful, taking one quote from Richard Sheff, MD. that says, “They're having divine healings that cannot be explained away.” Yet, admittedly, not everyone (many who spend several thousand dollars in travel) to go visit John of God are healed. From what I have observed, it's all very similar to the mesmerization that fraudulent Charismatics like Benny Hinn and TBN use to sucker weak people.
The Bible says that Jesus performed miracles which “NONE OTHER MAN DID.” This is one way that people know Jesus was the Son of God, as He claimed. No one today can do the miracles which Jesus did. This is why God won't heal amputees today. If He did, people would worship the man by which such miracles were wrought. John 15:24, “If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.”
One of the men who visited John of God said...
“Because of this I'm now interested in the development and cultivation of the spiritual life.”
In other words, he's been recruited into the New Age spiritual movement (that is totally devoid of Biblical Christianity). New Age is of the Devil, literally. New Agers often talk about “entities” (which in reality are DEMONS). My friend, any spirit that is not the Holy Spirit is a familiar spirit.
Oprah Winfrey is a dangerous false prophet. I'm really surprised that there are hardly any Baptist preachers and churches exposing Oprah for the New Age prophet that she is. Oprah often quotes from the Scriptures to deceive people. Concerning John of God, she quoted Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Jesus was speaking about born-again Christians meeting together, not spiritists. When New Agers meet together, it is a satanic cult.
Oprah flew to Maui, Hawaii, to interview Dr. Wayne Myer who claims that John of God healed his Leukemia from 12,000 miles away. Oh boy! The man attempts to justify the quackery of John of God by quoting Matthew 19:26, “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” Notice that neither “Dr. Dyer” nor any of the other alleged successes of John of God have medically documented their healing. It sounds crazy because it is crazy! If it seems too good to be true, that's because it is!!! Even salvation wasn't free, it cost God His only begotten Son. Jesus willingly gave His life on the cross for you and me. That's unconditional love!!! Eternal life is free to you and me, bought and paid in full by Jesus' precious blood!!! What a great offer and deal. All you have to do to have eternal life is take it by placing your complete reliance in Christ's death on the cross for your sins, His burial and His bodily resurrection three days later (1st Corinthians 15:1-4).
The truth is that Satan promotes false prophets like John of God in Brazil to deceive people. A lot of hurting people and families are desperate for help, healing or anything they can find to alleviate their misery and suffering. In such situations, it doesn't take hardly any effort at all to coerce a hurting person to believe that they've benefited from a trip to Brazil to see some witchdoctor. There are no medically documented healings by John of God, only unsubstantiated claims, rumors and hype.
And Oprah Winfrey shamefully exploits such satanic deceptions to make LOTS of money, while appeasing her New World Order bosses and Satan. Oprah Winfrey is a liberal in that she denies that Jesus is the only way to Heaven. She's a modernist in that she often uses quotes from the Bible and speaks of God, but she is not a born-again Christian. Oprah is a religious humanist in that she promotes spiritual growth without the Gospel. And Oprah is Miss New Ager because she promotes the mumbo-jumbo of the Ascended Masters (New Ager pioneers: Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Benjamin Creme, Maitreya, Sri Chinmoy, et cetera). Kindly, Oprah will split Hell wide open the second she enters into eternity unless she repents of her unbelief and turns to Christ, and so will John of God and anyone else who rejects the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is the ONLY way to Heaven!!!
