Beware of Jimmy Swaggart’s Expositor’s Study Bible

“And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgement now of long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”  II Peter 2:3.

In The Expositor’s Study Bible,  Jimmy Swaggart has not only mixed his words with the Words of God, but highlighted them in red, the common way most Bibles have of showing the Words of Jesus Christ.  It is fearful to find any man’s words mixed in with the Words of Almighty God and it is equally fearful to read many of Swaggart’s doctrines of demons.

“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.  As we said before, so say I now again,  If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye received, let him be accursed.”  Gal. 1:8,9.

    The Expositor’s Study Bible – Heresies

“For Sarah conceived, and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time which God had spoken to him.”  Genesis 21:2.

(“Referring back to the last Chapter, if it be objected that this whole occurrence is incredible, because no heathen prince would desire to marry a woman upwards of ninety years of age, or to conceive such a passion for her to secure her he would murder her husband – the very fate which Abraham feared for himself – it may be replied that God must have miraculously renewed her youth, so that she became sufficiently youthful in appearance to suitably be desired…”) Jimmy Swaggart, p. 39.

“After many days you shall be visited; in the latter years you shall come back into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste:  but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.”  Ezekiel 38:8.

(“…”And they shall dwell safely all of them,” refers to the terrible horror of the Holocaust in World War II, with some 6,000,000 Jews being slaughtered by Hitler, and Israel then demanding a homeland instead of being of being scattered all over the world.  Their feeling was that if this could be obtained, then they would be “safe”)  Jimmy Swaggart, p.1445.

“And you shall say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them who are at rest, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates”  Ezekiel 38:11.

(“the phrases,  “The land of unwalled villages” “Dwelling without walls” and “Having neither bars nor gates,” refer to Israel’s efforts at mobilization to be weak, at least in the mind of the Antichrist”) Jimmy Swaggart, p.1446.

“And, behold, I send you the Promise of My father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until you be endued with power from on high.”  Luke 24:49.

(“…this is the Baptism with the Holy Spirit, which is always accompanied by the speaking with other tongue [Acts 2:4]; without being thus endued, the Believer and the Church are of little worth to the Kingdom of God.”) Jimmy Swaggart, p.  1835.

“And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.”  Galatians 6:16.

(“This refers to all who look to the Cross for their Redemption.  They alone are the true Israel.”)  Jimmy Swaggart, p.2060

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”  II Thessalonians 2:3.

(“…”should have been translated, “for that day shall not come, except there come a departure first”; this speaks of the Rapture,…”) Jimmy Swaggart, p.2094.

“I know your works, and tribulations, and poverty, (but you are rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are of the Synagogue of Satan.”  Revelation 2:9.

(“…from this verse we learn that God doesn’t consider Jews who reject Christ as truly Jewish.  The worship of Christ-rejecting Jews is concluded by the Lord to be Satanic.”) Jimmy Swaggart, p. 2185.

“Behold, I will make them of the Synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.”  Revelation 3:9.

(“proclaims the fact that God doesn’t recognize the spiritual claims of national Israel…”) Jimmy Swaggart, p. 2187.

“And if any man will hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth, and devours their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.”  Revelation 11:5.

(“pertains to the judgment and not literal fire…”) Jimmy Swaggart, p.2197.

“And she brought forth a manchild, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne.”  Revelation 12:5.

(“as stated, this is the 144,000 Jews who will come to Christ during the first half of the Great Tribulation [Chpt.7]; we aren’t told how this will be done.”) Jimmy Swaggart, p.2199..

It is a noticeable fact that Jimmy Swaggart believed dangerous false teacher Finis Dake was the greatest theologian that ever lived.

In 1937, Finis Dake was convicted of violating the Mann Act by willfully transporting 16-year-old hitchhiker Emma Barelli across the Wisconsin state line “for the purpose of debauchery and other immoral practices.” Dake pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six months in a Milwaukee jail, where he “intended to pass most of his time…writing a book — a commentary on the Bible.

In 2001, Finis Dake’s heirs filed a lawsuit against Jimmy Swaggart accusing him of stealing Dake’s writing and passing them off as his own. One of Dake’s apostate teachings is that God had a body (Mormon doctrine). Jimmy Swaggart also teaches this heresy.

British Israel Connection

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils:”  I Timothy 4:1.

Swaggart’s teaching that replace Israel with the church: “God doesn’t recognize the spiritual claims of national Israel,” along with his  bizarre comment “As strange as it may sound, the history of  Israel and the U.S.A. go back over 2,500 years.” (The United States, Israel & Islam, Jimmy Swaggart, p. 43.), are the blasphemous beliefs of  British Israelism, as can be verified by the following excerpt from an article written by British Israel believer Walter Baucum.

“Now, 2,500 years of American prehistory must be transferred to history, for history begins when writing begins and we now have the oldest written documents of our nation and the names of the men who wrote them.  British children continue to learn the history of Britain from the remotest stone-age era, through the Celts, the Roman invaders, the Saxon invasions, the Norman invasion, and so on through the middle ages into the present era.  American children though, until now, began their history with Christopher Columbus in 1942.  We can now date our history as far back as can the British people.” (Are We Israel – If So, Who Cares?, Walter Baucum.)

On the September 19, 2012, Frances and Friends program, Frances, Donnie, panel member Jim Nations, and guest Johnny Lee Clarry discussed the false teachings of British Israelism.  This is just one more example of  doublespeak from the Swaggarts.

The Swaggarts – Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing 

Paul clearly warned “For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter among you, not sparing the flock.  Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.  Therefore, watch and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.”   Acts 20:29-31.

While the Swaggarts are constantly exposing Kingdom Now Dominion Theology, which incorporates a crusader mindset as it teaches it is our christian duty to take over the world in a political sense, and if necessary in a military sense before Jesus can return, Donnie  was in Australia PROMOTING it.

In, January 2011,  Donnie Swaggart was guest speaker at the ‘National Australia Day United Prayer.’   This ecumenical gathering led by Daniel Nalliah, President of Catch the Fire Ministries, Australia, had a clear Kingdom Now Dominion Theology mandate as is evident when reading the following excerpts from the ‘Australia Day United Prayer and Revival in Jan. 2011’ leaflet at: http://catchthefire.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/national-australia-day-united-prayer-2011-and-ctfm-revival-meetings-with-rev-donnie-swaggart.pdf

“Rev. Donnie Swaggart (son of Rev Jimmy Swaggart) will minister the uncompromised Word of the Lord and challenge the body of Christ  in Australia to rise up and transform the nations for Jesus…

Pastor Daniel stated, “Do not miss this great opportunity to unite as up to 1000 prayer warriors gather from many denominations and cultures across Australia, to petition heaven for our nation to honor Jesus as Christ.  United prayer will bring down God’s glory; it is the key to nationwide governmental breakthrough.”

Listed as supporters and representatives of this ecumenical prayer gathering are:  “Anglicans, African Churches, AOG, Apostolic, Arabic, Baptist, Catholic, CCC, Chinese, Church of Christ, COC, Orthodox, CRC, FGA, Filipino, Independent Churches, Indian, Indigenous, Indonesian, Lutheran, Messianic Believers, Methodists, Presbyterian, Reformed, Salvation Army, Samoan, Sri Lankan, Uniting & Many Ethnic Churches, Culture Watch, National Alliance of Christian Leaders, Salt Shakers, Australian Marketplace Connections, Victoria Parliament, Transforming Melbourne, Rise Up Australia and Options Plus Care.”

Further evidence of the ungodly Kingdom Now Dominionist agenda of Catch the Fire Ministries is revealed when Daniel Nalliah, chairman of Rise Up Australia Party stated:

“It is with great joy and excitement that we announce the formation of a new political party, RISE UP AUSTRALIA PARTY (Keep Australia Australian) a party for all people who embrace Australia as home. This Party is totally committed to protecting the Australian way of life and our Judeo-Christian Heritage upon which Australia was founded…The Rise Up Australia Party Board of Directors comprises of Medical Doctors, Housewives, Businessmen, Businesswomen, Christian Ministers and others with more than 20 years of experience in the Political arena. This great bunch of people who love Australia, have been working behind the scenes for the past several months to set up the Party, ready to start operations in June 2011.  http://riseupaustraliaparty.com

The phrase “Judeo-Christian”  used by the anti-semetic British Israel believing dominionists  to promote their agenda is an oxymoron.

Daniel Nalliah was the in-studio guest on ‘Frances and Friends’ August 10, 2012. With the blessings of Frances and Donnie Swaggart, who call him a brother, Nalliah used this platform to openly promote the dominionist agenda of the Rise Up Australia Party.

During the first hour of the program, Nalliah, born in Sri Lanka, which has the longest continuous history of Buddhism of any Buddhist nation, referred to Buddha as “Lord Buddha.”

When asked “did you call Buddha Lord Buddha?” by a discerning Christian who called into the program, Nalliah, with the aid of Donnie and Frances, tried to convince the caller that he was only quoting another party.  While continuing to address the caller’s concerns Nalliah once again, quite naturally in my humble opinion, referred to Buddha as “Lord Buddha.”

Political Activist Holly Swanson

On April 5, 2013, political activist and author of ‘Set Up & Sold Out What Green Really Means’ Holly Swanson returned as guest speaker on Francis and Friends.  During the two hour program Holly, who is recognized as one of the nation’s top columnists, public speakers, activist, and Director of Operation Green Out, promoted her agenda by encouraging the listening and viewing audience to get involved in political activism (dominionist agenda).

Holly Swanson has spoken at numerous political and ecumenical gatherings including Council For National Policy (CNP) member Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum San Diego 2012 – Rise Up California.  The diverse group of speakers at this meeting included: Wayne Allyn Root, Founder of Root for America, Dinesh D’Souza, best selling author “The Roots of Obama’s Rage,” Dran Reese, Founder of Salt and Light Council, Alice Linahan, President of Voices Empower/Activist/National Blogger/Social Media Communication Specialist, Rick Scarborough, Founder of Vision America, Frank Gaffney, Founder of Center for Security policy in Washington, D.C., and catholic priest Frank Pavone, Director of Priests for Life, who was added to the line of speakers at the last minute.

On May 9, 2009, Holly Swanson was one of the guest speakers at Chuck Smith’s Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa ‘The Challenge of Change’ seminar.  Among the many diverse speakers at this meeting were Council For National Policy (CNP) member Gary Bauer, Mormon Glenn Beck, political activist Brigette Gabriel, who gave video presentations on ‘The Challenge of Change’, and Phyllis Schlafly, CNP member, and catholic Founder and President of Eagle Forum who spoke on Change – Ready or Not.

Dominionist Nancy Harmon at JSM

Nancy Harmon was guest singer at Jimmy Swaggart’s Easter and Thanksgiving Campmeetings in 2011. Harmon was invited back to sing at the Easter Campmeeting, 2013.

The Kansas City blatant false prophets Paul Cain, Bob Jones, John Paul Jackson and Mike Bickle coined the term The New Breed.  The New Breed spoken of by these apostates are multitudes of deceived young people manifesting false signs and wonders who move only in the “prophetic.”  Called by various names including – New Breed, Joel’s Army, Jesus Army, Jesus Culture,The Call and Joshua Generation, they follow the  Latter Rain/Manifest Sons of God false teaching of taking dominion over the earth before Jesus returns.  See  Joel’s Army a Frightening Peek at The New Breed : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RW6-w-SP0IA

Joel’s Army Training Center poster leaves no doubt as to the militant agenda of these Kingdom Now Dominionists.

“It is time for a REVOLUTION!  The spirit of Elijah has come. The tabernacle of David has been restored. God has a remnant of young people whose hearts burn for Him. They have been raised for such a time as this. At JATC, you will not only be trained in biblical doctrine, but equipped as end-time warriors executing vengeance upon the adversary.” www.jatconline.org

The term  New Breed surfaced at Nancy Harmon Ministries when this false prophet claimed “God woke her early one morning telling her He was raising up an army of young people who wouldn’t bow their knee to Baal and the other idols of the land.  This group of Warriors, 300 strong, would help Him usher His End Time Revival in this land before His 2nd Coming!  He wanted Nancy to begin preparing them.”  Harmon refers to these young people as her Mighty Warriors – New Breed.

Nancy’s 2010 Mighty Warriors –  New Breed recruitment video reveals young people mesmerized by listening to the militant song “I Hear The Sound Of The New Breed.”  The video concludes with a very combative young man and young lady stating:  “We are armed and dangerous.  Strong and serious.   Step out of the average, step out of the norm. Be a part of the new breed which is storming the nation.  Launch the new breed explosion.”  The 2010 promo video can be viewed at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwkqyK76-KI

Much prayer is needed for the young as they are being led as lambs to the slaughter by wicked evildoers.

Donnie Swaggart and Benny Hinn – Brothers

“Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”  Amos 3:3.

On February 18, 2011, Donnie Swaggart, while serving as a panel member on the Sonlife Broadcasting Network program ‘Frances and Friends,’ shared with the listening and viewing audience that he had known Benny Hinn for 21 years and he [Hinn] was a brother.

Swaggart’s statement should be of serious concern as heretic Benny Hinn has been working closely with the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Special Envoy to the Middle East, British Canon Andrew White, to further the Templar’s agenda to take over Israel.

In should be of interest to note that in 2003, Anglican Canon White was made a Grand Commander of the Order of Merit of the Knights Templar of Jerusalem Woolf Institute Peace Prize…the highest honor that can be bestowed by a Knights
Templar…Canon White is the only one who has ever received this honor.

Of further interest is the Alexandria Declaration, signed in Alexandria, Egypt, January 21, 2002,  a process set in motion by Canon Andrew White in-order to unite the three monotheistic faiths, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity—-laying the groundwork towards the one world religion.

“The first Middle East Interfaith Summit with the participation of the leaders of the three monotheistic faiths, held in Alexandria, Egypt, issued the following statement.

In the name of God who is the Almighty, Merciful and Compassionate, we who have gathered as religious leaders from the Muslim, Christian and Jewish communities, pray for true peace in Jerusalem and the Holy Land, and declare our commitment to ending the violence and bloodshed that denies the right of life and dignity.

According to our faith traditions, killing innocents in the name of God is a desecration of His Holy Name, and defames religion in the world. The violence in the Holy Land is a evil which must be opposed by all people of good faith. We seek to live together as neighbors respecting the integrity of each other’s historical and religious and historical inheritance. We call upon all to oppose incitement, hatred and misrepresentation of the other.

1. The Holy Land is holy to all three of our faiths. Therefore, followers of the divine religions must respect its sanctity, and bloodshed must not be allowed to pollute it. The sanctity and integrity of the holy places must be preserved, and freedom of religious worship must be insured for all.

2. Palestinians and Israelis must respect the divinely ordained purpose of the Creator by whose grace they live in the same land that is called holy.

3. We call on all political leaders of both peoples to work for a just, secure and durable solution in the spirit of the words of the Almighty and the prophets.

4. As a first step now, we call for a religiously sanctioned cease-fire, respected and observed on all sides, and for the implementation of the Mitchell and Tenet recommendations, including the lifting of restrictions and return to negotiations.

5. We seek to create an atmosphere where present and future generations will coexist with mutual respect and trust in each other. We call on all to refrain from incitement and demonization, and to educate our future generations accordingly.

6. As religious leaders, we pledge ourselves to continue a joint quest for a just peace that leads to reconciliation in Jerusalem and the Holy Land, for the common good of all our peoples.

7. We announce the establishment of a permanent joint committee to carry out the recommendations of this declaration, and to engage with our respective political leadership accordingly.”

Donnie Swaggart and Oneness Pentecostalism

Donnie Swaggart was the guest speaker at Built on the Rock International Ministries (BOTR), London, UK, on the 25th and 26th of August, 2012.  BOTR, founded by senior pastor Apostle (or Bishop) Harold Carl McFarlane, is a Oneness Pentecostal Church.  Oneness Pentecostalism, like the Jehovah Witnesses, reject the biblical doctrine of the trinity

After a three week absence Frances Swaggart returned on November 5, 2012, to her host chair and a new set. This new black, grey, and red set is very dark, mysterious, and mesmerizing, more suitable for a ritulistic ceremony than a Christian television program. The round table in the center of this garish set should send up a red flag as the “object” on top of the table, when viewed from a certain angle, resembles a Knights Templar crusader cross.

Strange Fire at Crossfire

Gabriel Swaggart, leader of  CrossfireYouth Ministries introduced the attendees of the 2012 International Youth  Conference to the warrior/knight agenda (see Raising a Modern-Day Knights Templar) with  graphics used in an advertisement  promoting this gathering.  The graphic depicts a crimson and gold fringed  banner with a pagan Celtic cross (Crossfire Youth Ministries logo), a head  of a  knight with a crown and three horns, along with a clear message  that these young people are  ”Warriors  for Christ.” June 2012, July
2012, and  August, 2012, p.19, editions  of The Evangelist published by  Jimmy Swaggart Ministries at: http://www.jsm.org/the-evangelist.html
Predictably this page has been removed.

Gabriel Swaggart also hosts a once weekly TV show ‘Generation of the Cross’ for youth.  This program airs on Sonlife Broadcasting Network every Saturday morning.  Those with discernment will recognize the symbol used for Gabriel’s “Generation of the Cross” message is a pagan Celtic cross.

Not only is the Celtic cross clearly visible but the left brain/right brain emotional intelligence behavioral control program symbol, two half circles with an e in one half  and an i in the other, can be seen throughout this hour long program at the top left hand corner of the screen.  The symbol can also be seen on the weekly Sonlife Broadcasting Network program “Crossfire Youth Ministry.” http://sonlifetv.com/archives.html

The concept of emotional intelligence is reported to have originated with evolutionist Charles Darwin who believed mankind must change in-order to survive.

“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”  Charles Darwin

In a world full of treachery, lies and deceit it is comforting to meditate on Jesus Christ’s answer to Pilate’s question, “What is truth?” Jesus gave the solution to Pilate’s question in fact before the words even came out of the Roman leader’s mouth. Pilate just refused to hear what Jesus told him. Quoting from John 18:37, “For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” All who hearken to Christ’s Words will be led to the truth of Life and will receive His promise of salvation and deliverance from the wrath which is soon to come. If you do not have a personal relationship with the Living Lord Jesus Christ, repent (have a change of mind) and put your complete faith in ‘the Way, the Truth and the Life,” who paid for the sins of the world by His atoning blood sacrifice when He was pierced upon the cross – the Risen Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:6).

    Thank you for this.

    I tried explaining this to my mother who REALLY likes Jimmy Swaggart and thinks everything he says is true in his Bible.

    I’d really appreciate the advice.

    • Watchman1948 says:

      Hello Lauren,
      As the 1611 Authorized King James Version was written in old English it is a little difficult to understand. When reading any Bible version including the K JV or the NKJV it is the Holy Spirit that is our teacher.

      But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, who the Father will send in my Name, He will teach you all things, and bring you to the remembrance all things that that I said to you. John. 14:26

      Now we have received, not the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 1 Corinthians. 2: 12-13

      But the anointing which you have received in Him abides in you and you do not need that any man teaches you; as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. 1 John. 2:27

      Being unfamiliar with any Bible Commentary I cannot recommend one at this time,

  5. Hugo Yliniemi says:

    Jimmy Swaggart expositor’s 1 Tim 3:2 says about the qualifications (these are qualities, and not qualifications as some claim). Jimmy rewrites the bible. All of my bibles in captions call them qualifications. Jimmy Swaggart knows he isn’t qualified because decades of chasing prostitutes and being unfaithful to his wife cannot be considered qualified according to 1 Tim 3:2. For him it is best to change what the bible says. Rev 22:18-19 I testify to everyone who hears the words of prophecy in this book: If anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. He does get people saved, but it doesn’t qualify to be pastor or church leader. Jimmy still needs to repent.
