Peter Popoff’s Heresies




But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction (2 Peter 2:1).

Peter Popoff (born 1946) is a German-born U.S heretical “evangelist” and con-artist who has spent most of his adult life pretending to treat physical ailments through the use of supposed faith healing. Reverend Popoff’s shows have also featured audience members who were brought on stage in wheelchairs and who have subsequently risen dramatically to walk without support, though this was because Popoff used wheelchairs to seat people who were already able to walk.


Conman
His “ministry” is based in Upland, California, and is funded through donations. A widely popular minster in the 1980s, he was declared bankrupt in 1987 after James Randi, for a segment on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, proved that Popoff’s wife, Elizabeth, was transmitting names and details of the lives of people in the audience, who had filled out prayer cards before sermons, to Popoff, proving to the world that he was a conman. Popoff would then claim he received the names directly from The Holy Spirit.

Unfortunately, he has returned to national television, broadcasting his crusade services in which he claims to conduct miracles by laying his hands. Currently, Reverend Popoff is also known for sending packets of “Miracle Spring Water” to his viewers. The water is supposedly a solution to physical and financial problems. Very recently, he has resorted to mail fraud by distributing pamphlets and letters to random PO boxes throughout the UK urging recipients to send him £25 as a sacrifice to God so he can pray for them and solve their financial woes.

False Prophet
Peter Popoff is a false prophet!!!  His website is at http://www.peterpopoff.org.  Peter Popoff promotes his Miracle Water.  Sadly, many people have fallen victim to this blatant scam.  Popoff’s TV show uses lures of a better job, better health, and more money to sucker people into sending him a donation.  It is tragic that greedy men stoop so low as to exploit the name of Jesus, but this is what Peter Popoff, Don Stewart, Mike Murdock, Benny Hinn, Pat Robertson, Robert Tilton, James Robison, and others are doing.  Read what the Word of God warns us concern these evil men…

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” ―2nd Peter 2:1-3

Matthew 7:22-23 reveals that many false prophets do exploit the NAME of Jesus…

“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.”

These false prophets did all that they did IN JESUS’ NAME; YET, they went to Hellfire, because they didn’t do the WILL OF GOD concerning salvation.  Ye must be born again!  All we hear from greedy televangelists today is promises of health, wealth, and prosperity if we’ll just send in a donation, plant a financial seed in their ministry, or buy something from them.  It was this very same shenanigans that angered the Lord in John 2:14-16…

Money Grugger
“And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables; And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.”

Christianity began as a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.  When it went to Greece it became a philosophy.  When Christianity went to Rome it became an organization.  When it spread throughout Europe it became a culture.  And when Christianity came to America it became a business.  This is so tragic!  Whether it be Mike Murdock begging for a $58 “uncommon seed,” or Peter Popoff begging for people to purchase his Miracle Water, God condemns turning Christianity into a business.

Gibberish Jabberer
Peter Popoff also speaks in demonic Charismatic tongues, making a mockery of God’s power through fraudulent healing services.  In these services people fall back onto the floor, jumping up and down like idiots.  Popoff’s greatly promotes his Miracle Spring Water, promising special healing and blessings to those who purchase and drink it.  Of course, this is of the Devil.  Watching a Peter Popoff crusade is similar to watching a freak game show.  The music is ridiculous.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again―why don’t these Charismatic healers restore any amputees?  It’s because they can’t.  The alleged healings are always limited to unseen illnesses.  The truth is that NONE of those fakes can heal anyone!

One theme is repeated over and over by the lying televangelists―money, money, money.  It’s all about money to them.  If you’re stupid, or just plain ignorant, you’ll send them money.  Please do not send them any money.

Peter Popoff is an imposter, who ought to be ashamed of himself for exploiting the name of Jesus to make money. [1]
