In the world of the supernatural one can only wonder what will be next. Well the new revivals worth is going up. God has begun the Midas 'touch (anointing) to pass on his blessing to his people. You may have heard it said its raining cats and dogs, but for the Church its raining gold dust (inside).

John Arnott of the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship have issued a press release and “official statement” with the caption, “GOLD TEETH!” God has begun dental miracles, filling peoples teeth with gold and sprinkling a little x-tra gold dust besides. I have often said not all that glitters is gold, well I’m going to have to admit I may be wrong, but it just may be fools gold.

The (Happy) Hunters write of this occurring previously 'Other reputed catalysts of the Argentine revival include Edguardo Silvoso, Omar Cabrera, and Hector Gimenez. Reportedly, extraordinary miracles occurred, such as the raising of the dead, the creation of previously removed bodily organs, and even the restoration of tooth fillings.” (Holy Laughter, Charles and Francis Hunter, p.17) Reports about gold flakes falling during prayer meetings were coming in already at the end '97.

Some even claim silver or platinum fillings or caps have been manifested. Some of the fillings are even cross-shaped. I guess you can say this is a Christian dental plan. I remember almost 12 years ago of hearing a rumor like this from a Word/Faith Church here in Hawaii. At any rate there have been over than 300 incidents of “ miracles of the dental kind” claimed during a conference.

Scriptural proof: There are pictures on the Internet of these “molar miracles”. With the Scripture “Open your mouth and I will fill it” (Psalm 81:10). So then David experience the dental miracle as well. When God said this it meant to have His word on your tongue. Since many want an experience instead of His word they received a wonder- a lying wonder. (see the video of John Scotland at Toronto to know exactly what this means).

John Arnott says- Why would God fill people’s teeth with gold? Perhaps because He loves them and delights in blessing His children. Perhaps it is a sign and a wonder to expose the skepticism still in so many of us. Perhaps His glory and presence are drawing very near. (Official TACF Statement, March 17, 1999, on their web site www.tacf.org)

In addition to the report it adds that God has thrown in the sprinkling of gold dust. Any time someone claims the miraculous, we are commanded to test it , not just accept it. As much as I would like to believe this, I can't for numerous reasons. Most of all the source it is coming from!

The statement does admits: “In a few cases, dentists were able to show from their records that the gold was put in their mouths previously by the dentist and not by God. These people had apparently forgotten that this work had been done.” That is not surprising considering I have watched the videos and people forgot their name and where they live, so who can remember their last dental checkup. Some are reluctant to go visit their dentist so they can hold on to their miracle.

Example: a Canadian newspaper reported that two TV evangelists had recanted their claims of having received dental miracles: Willard Thiessen, host of a daily religion program on Winnipeg television, admitted yesterday he was wrong in telling his tele-flock that God had inexplicably planted a gold tooth in his mouth. It turned out the gold tooth had been implanted by his brother Elmer, a dentist in British Columbia.

Another religious broadcaster in Lethbridge, Alta., told a CJIL-TV audience during an on-air fundraising marathon in March that God had implanted a gold tooth in his mouth after a bout of intensive prayer. But Dr. Jack Sherman, Mr. Dewert's longtime dentist, said he had put it in about 10 years earlier.

From Australia to S. Africa this is occurring but is found in Churches that already participants in the revival. John and Carol Arnott recently visited South Africa, where “they prayed for gold teeth,” according to Arnott’s assistant, Petra Drnovscek, and “it started happening everywhere.”

Richard Riss, a historian for the current revival has only good things to say. I was forwarded these quotes are from an e-mail that another received from Richard: “There seems to be a sovereign anointing where the Lord is giving gold teeth not only in conferences and churches, but also over the phone, in homes, and cars! Reports are coming in to us from all over the country and it's very exciting! This anointing is wonderfully transferable and it's for everyone, wherever you live! Take it! Give it away!”

Richard Riss …”one thing is for sure, a new wave and a new level of renewal has hit. . .I do know that gold is representative of the divine nature. I also know that, according to Scripture, we will be partakers of the divine nature. So this phenomenon could be a physical manifestation of the spiritual truth that we are becoming partakers of His divine nature.” (Taken from an e-mail received in May 1999 - Richard Riss- RRISS@drew.edu)

Where in the world do we find the concept of “new levels” of the anointing (God himself as the Holy Spirit). Are we just becoming partakers of the divine nature? What does this mean? In light of Latter Rain teachings it means they are becoming manifest sons of God with signs following. We already have the divine nature inside when we were born again. 2 Pet 1:2-4 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature,” We already have it but it is through the Holy Spirit and the word.

Some people claim that gold is a symbol of purity, so these dental miracles are a sign from God that is purifying his Church. Does god give signs now to point to his church or himself? How does the word say we are purified

Peter goes on to say 2 Pet 1:8-9:”For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.” This is how we were purified Heb 9:22: “ And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood.”

1 Pet.1:22-23:” Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,” Jesus said John 15:3: “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.”

Luke 11:39: But the Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees make the outside of the cup and dish clean, but your inward part is full of greed and wickedness.” Are now people going to travel to get the new anointings of miracles? Of course they have been chasing after spiritual fulfillment for years. These are the same people that were acting like dogs barking, or in birth pains or just plain drunk. ( I recommend that one gets John Scotlands mockery of the word at Toronto Church to see what is really happening). James 5:3 says, “Your gold and silver is cankered, and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.” The treasure in Gods word is discarded and even mocked by those inside this move.

1 Tim 3:9: “holding the mystery of the faith with a pure conscience.”

In Australia is a Vineyard Church closely associated to Toronto are seeing this gold. They are also claiming through Pastor Ian Turton: “We have been hearing about what God has been doing overseas filling peoples teeth with gold, silver & platinum even braces turning to gold. ... Last Sunday night we asked all present to lay hands on their mouths & we prayed that the Lord would fill the teeth with gold. By Monday night we were amazed as we actually saw fillings change into gold before our eyes. Personally I have 7 gold fillings my wife 2 & others are getting blown away by their fillings changing before their eyes.” Why not ask for real teeth, why stop there why not ask for hair on those who are bald?

When they were asked by a ministries why God would just not give new teeth or new enamel. The immediate answer was, “We don't want to get into deep theological discussions here. It is just cool to think of God doing it.”

In response, this ministry wrote Pastor Turton and asked: “I am trying to determine a genuine move of God. Can you provide any proof or documentation (or before and after photos), dental records, etc. to verify the claims of fillings and braces turning to gold?”

The short answer from Pastor Turton was “no real proof.” He put it this way: “In regards to your request of documentation. All that we can provide are photographs of the actual gold fillings. ... There are no photos of before (we were not anticipating what God would really do at the time). ... I believe Toronto Airport C. F. are publishing findings soon regarding hundreds of testimonies there.” But of course there are pictures before, if one has ever had dental work!

Acts records several miracles in the early Church and none of them are of dentistry. Not that this would eliminate this from occurring. But imagine people who had no leg and saying Jesus healed them by giving them a wooden leg, or would a person with a blind eye get a glass eye. When He heals the deaf, would he give them a hearing-aid. When God heals, really heals, it is an organic miracle, we get real parts not synthetic man made ones, at least according to the Bible.

One ministry promoting this on a web site claims seeing in her meetings not only flakes of gold falling out of people's hair and off their bodies, but oil running out of their hands! And she has pictures to prove it! Her Newsletter proclaims: “God gifted us this year with the manifestation of gold dust in our meetings. As we are worshipping, gold dust from heaven is seen on us. Some comes through the pours of our skin, some falls directly from heaven on us and some is created in front of our eyes.” What does this mean, does it have a meaning, what is it suppose to produce?

I guess this is the prosperity that the latter rain prophets have said would come to the church.

One modern-day prophet reports: “the wonderful 'gold dust' started to show up on people's hands and in their tears as they worshipped!” Wow and I thought bleeding crying statues were amazing. Catholicism has there's, now we have ours.

A friend watched TBN on Sept.13,1999  and was amazed to hear Benny Hinn talk about gold dust on his hands, hair, face and jacket.  Hinn asked why the gold? Crouch's response, that the gold had to be from another dimension,” heavens door opened a crack and a little of the street dust came down on ya.” Are heavens streets falling apart? Of course not! How this falls from heaven to earth is not explained and does not have to be for the followers of  false "supernatural signs." In fact Crouch  February of 2,000 had a guest who analyzed the gold dust that appeared on him and found it it be a unknown alloy that was in a square shape (which he related to the new Jerusalem 4 square) with a non genuine gold covering. It was not real gold! Just like the revival its come from, it is a counterfeit.

Charisma News Service reported that a Brazilian evangelist Silvania Machado's had gold dust fall in services. Two independent tests on samples of the gold-colored dust  found the substance to be more like plastic glitter, with no gold content. Charisma had two samples of Machado's gold dust analyzed by the U.S. Geological Survey in Washington, D.C. Both were regarded to be plastic film with no traces of gold, platinum or silver. (Sept. 8, 1999) Once again the test showed it to be plastic glitter. If this is a sign, what kind is it?  

If you can get a chance to watch the Ruth Heflin video with Machado ( she is now deceased) What you will see is Machado planted all this stationary glitter in her hair prior to the stage performance. On cue from Heflin she bends her head and it all comes falling out from being clumped under her hair. Clearly this is so phony its hard to believe anyone would fall for this! But they do because they want to.

We are told it is our faith is more precious than gold. Prov.3:13-16: “Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding; For her proceeds are better than the profits of silver, and her gain than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies, and all the things you may desire cannot compare with her. Length of days is in her right hand, in her left hand riches and honor.” Proverbs 8:10 “Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold”, I know they didn’t seek for this, but wouldn’t God give people wisdom and understanding before he would give gold fillings. Especially when they have a greater need for discernment and biblical teaching?

Wasn’t the tabernacle made with gold but when the high priest once a year went in he didn’t come out with gold dust or fillings. There's not one miracle like this in the OT the only similar action was manna from heaven and it had a practical purpose. Jesus said in Matt. 23:17 “ fools and blind: for which is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifies the gold? So many times we look at the outward for proof of Gods presence, here Jesus says the temple is more important because God was in it as his dwelling place. It is our bodies that have now become the temple of the Lord and he doesn't need to give gold to show his love. It was the Jews who fell into idolatry while the true glory was above them on the mountain with Moses. When Moses came down with the commandments he saw them worshipping the golden calf. He had them burn it, he then crushed it into powder for them to drink it.(Ex.32:19-28) The gold dust sprinkled on the water was drank as a judgment on their forsaking the true God. He then had them decide whose side they would take. 3,000 of them were then killed by the sword. The parallel is that the Church today can't wait for the real glory so we hype up our own. We want the gold, we want the signs. The same people who started this revival preach prosperity as part of the covenant. Whats coming is judgment from the word.

The Apostle Peter confessed: “Silver and gold have I none” (Acts 3:6). Now we can actually say we have that too, at least in our mouths and not our pockets. The apostles saw no type of miracles such as these but today they have become common place as a gift from God.

“... Midas was a character in Greek mythology. The god Dionysus gave Midas the power to turn everything he touched to gold. (Dionysus was the god of wine in Greek mythology. The Romans also adopted him as their god of wine, calling him Bacchus. The Greeks associated him with violent and unpredictable behavior, especially actions caused by drinking too much wine. At first, Midas' miraculous power pleased him, but soon became a curse, because even his food turned to gold the moment he touched it. He prayed to Dionysus to help him, and the god told him to bathe in the river Pactolus. Midas washed himself and the magic touch left him. But the sands of the river turned to gold. The expression “to have the Midas touch” is used to describe a person who makes money in everything he does. (Discernment Newsletter Mar/Apr., 1999)

Interesting to note that those who drink the new wine are now seeing gold. These are the same people who can't control themselves under the anointing and run wild in a church service flipping and flopping like a fish dying out of water. Some that can't remember, having amnesia and speechlessness. The church services also resemble those who express violence much like the Greek god Bacchus.

Alchemy is a medieval chemical art of transmuting base metals into gold.

“The old view of alchemists as seeking after the elixir of life, or touchstone for transmuting metals into gold is totally inadequate. Alchemical roots go back to primitive mythology; and its adepts treated alchemy as both a scientific, experimental tradition and a mystic wisdom tradition in which there was a confluence of Gnostic ideas about man and nature Alchemy always has a strong element of magic and of mysticism. The experimental physical aspect seems to be an introduction to mystic, magical secrets about the transformation of the spirit.” (A Dictionary of Alchemy” by Mark Haeffner)

The Rosicrucian's (named after the Rosy Cross) were known as spiritual alchemists turning objects into gold. Large heaps of gold were found in their houses without knowing from where it came from. Is this from the Lord?

Rev. Willard Fuller of Palatka, Fla. was a well-known of the “psychic dentists”  In the 1980s, he claimed he could turn silver fillings and crowns into gold, cure gum disease and  even grow new teeth in the mouths of his followers. Their were before or after X-rays  produced and requests for such evidence were always ignored.

Those who are already operating by a different understanding will continue to go on the long and winding road of delusion. I hope this is all it is, and these events are not occurring for if they are it is more grave a consequence to be considered. What is concerning is the Church leaning toward icons and miracles that are not addressed or recorded in the Scriptures. This is reminiscent of statues crying and bleeding, stigmata on the hands and feet and a host of other peculiar manifestations.

None of this is new, Franklin Hall who was one of the sources for the Latter Rain movement in 1948 was involved in “Christian” astrology he believed  the Aquarian Age was introduced in 1848. He spoke about an “Immortal Substance” that came on those who attended his meetings. This substance was a dusting like fine gold and silver which would sparkle from the skin. This was brought about through faith-power of impartation. He also had a yellow or golden cloud of fire above the audience ( similar the W. Branham).

Bill Britton a promoter of MSOG (manifest sons of God doctrine), essentially we become immortal without Christ's physical return or a resurrection. He taught: “We find the description of the Golden Altar in chapter 30 of Exodus. ... Notice in verse one that the altar is made of wood, overlaid with pure gold. In the Bible, wood is symbolic of the human nature, while gold is a type of the purity of God. So here in the Golden Altar we find a meeting of God and man, with God so overshadowing man, that the nature of man is nowhere to be seen. (Bill Britton “Light From The Shadows”). This is explanation we are hearing from those involved, God is purifying his Church and transforming it.

The occultist Alice Bailey wrote “Purification: Let the fires of divinity burn out all dross. Let the pure gold emerge. Give me the gold of living love to shower upon the sons of men.” (From Alice Bailey's “Discipleship in the New Age; Vol. I - Instructions to Disciples”) It should be concerning to anyone involve that the same manifestations are promoted from new age occultists.


Nancy Fowler a medium for Mary, “was praying before the crucifix in a room adjacent to the apparition room. Jesus appeared and said, “ Gold dust will fall from Heaven. Rosaries will turn golden color and hearts will be converted. I am healing My children. Go and believe.” (Journal of Reported Teachings and Messages of Our Lord and Our Loving Mother at Conyers, Georgia, USA Dec.13, 1992)

Jesus said, “People are going to discover they have gold dust on their hands when they go home. You know My greatest healings are the spiritual ones. (Aug. 31, 1992 message)

The Blessed Mother told Nancy that rosaries will turn to a golden color and that there would be sprinklings of gold dust. Crosses and rosaries have turned to gold at the shrines and at appearances of Mary. Thousands have come back from Medjugorje testifying that their rosaries turned to gold...the chain or beads often turn to gold immediately during a prayer service in the presence of hundreds of witnesses. Just like what is happening with the extreme Charismatics that are looking for supernatural events. The only difference, it occurred first with the Catholics!

This is proof that the same Spirit of deception is working to anyone who has opened the door and has a predisposition to these manifestations.



Outrageous Latter rain manifestations are popping up everywhere from spokane Washington to...

In Fairbanks Alaska, a few months ago I saw the lightnings of God in the Glory Cloud start flashing and I knew that angelic activity had increased in the light of God's soon return.  John Stott of revive-all ministries reports. He relates how in Jakarta Indonesia in January 1999  the Glory cloud came into the car through the windshield and followed him into the hotel.

In Exod. 13:21 we see that the Lord LEAD the People in the cloud by day and pillar of fire by night, and the people followed the cloud. Today, the cloud of glory follows men. Some have become so biblically illiterate that this is acceptable.

He goes on with....Leaving Orlando on the airplane a bolt of purple lightening with gold in it streaked across the aisle about 20 ft in front of him.. Then it continued to flash as it moved toward me and popped over his head. This continued for almost 40 minutes.

When he returned home “I continued to see the glory of God with it resulting in me spending 5 days in bed recuperating just feeling weak from being in the Glory. Then again the Glory cloud appeared three times in one day. When I asked John Arnott what was happening to me his response really helped me get a good perspective. He said, Darrel I think it is all about the closeness of the return of the Lord. Now the Glory has led us all into the miracles of healing. gold dust, oil, gold fillings...” Now who would have figured he knew John Arnott?

Go check out what happened to Moses and the people of Israel when it appeared to them. Hardly the same  reaction. For good reason, it is not the same thing.

In a recent report on the “Rivers of Fire” annual Summer Conference at Sunderland (UK) with Ken and Lois Gott...Cindy Jacobs was about to speak “but angels invaded the place. She was going to teach on principalities of angels when she had to stop and gasp. She saw these huge angels just walk into the place. At this point laughter broke loose in the congregation as these beings went around touching the people. At first only Cindy could see them. But you couldn't miss them as they left a trail of people falling off their chairs or falling down in hysterical laughter.”

Maitreya the new age Christ has consistently said: “Those who search for signs will find them.” Actually he is said to be the source of the wonders happening. Benjamen Crème has said that Maitreya says He” is going to flood the world with such happenings that the mind can never comprehend it. . . Because Maitreya hopes, by means of these ‘miracles’, to strengthen the climate of hope and expectancy in to which he can emerge as the Teacher for all humanity (November 1977)  “Those who search for signs will find them, but My method of manifestation is more simple.” (message no.10)

Benjamen Creme said on the Art Bell show the world today is filled with miracles let me just mention a few of them Maitreya says those who search for signs will find them… But the world filled with signs of his presence take for instance in the Christian world the appearances of the Madonna all over the world the moving Madonna the statues that literally move which open their eyes clasp their hands and unclasp them so, y’know made of plaster or stone or wood.” (Art Bell July 12,1998) The miracles of idolatry is preparing people for the image of the beast. He also gave numerous examples in other religions of crosses of light.

Lets take a quick magical mystery tour in what is being touted as visitations from God in certain Church's Glory clouds appear and  follow people, Gold dust falls on peoples heads and gold fills their teeth, gold crosses appear in teeth, fire appears over ones head. Pulpits are split by lightning, sound systems shorted out by lightning. Rays of light coming from ones hands, hands turn purple or are glowing with intense heat, blood appears on hands and feet like Jesus (Stigmata). Oil appears in the palms of hands and dripping from statues. Angels appear  to do healings and angel feathers are falling (are Angels losing their wings? They don’t have feathers). The  miracle  Jesus” of the 21st century has his image appear on walls and makes personal visits people in the bedrooms and in dreams or visions. He comes and takes people to heaven and hell and gives them new revelation.

In all these descriptions we find that Jesus (or the spirit) comes as an “angel of light.” Paul wrote to the church in 2 Cor. 11:3:  “But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted-- you may well put up with it. (you will have to endure it, or you wear it beautifully, and some do).

It is clear that Paul said Another Jesus is being preached, but what did Paul mean “another Jesus?” Well considering what is transpiring,  it doesn’t matter who he really is, just as long as he called Jesus. We had better learn the voice of our shepherd in the Scripture or your truth will be reduced to only an experience.

Mirages look real but given enough time the picture fades and so does one hope with it. If these are real then it is even more concerning what is going on. and we are far into something the bible speaks on with all seriousness.

Remember Paul states in 2 Thess.2:-1 about Jesus coming, the apostasy comes first. (it must come first). 2 Thess. 2:9-12: “ Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” We are watching the prelude to this happening right before us and portions of the Church are falling for it hook, line and sinker.
