False Teacher – Dick Deweert

The Exposure of Dick Deweert

Dick Deweert, founder of The Miracle Channel in Lethbridge, Alberta was caught in an extra-marital affair. He resigned as president, as did his wife, Joan Deweert, in order to stand with him. Here, according to the Lord, is what is happening there, going back to what He told Victor in 1983 at the beginning of this work of man.

Jimmy Swaggart, Jim and Tammy Bakker and Ted Haggard did not fall. They were exposed. They never stood in the first place, not as far as God is concerned. Dick and Joan Deweert are no different. The corruption has always been there. We are not speaking of regenerate souls in Christ Jesus, but of false teachers, prophets and apostles:

“They’re a sorry bunch–pseudo-apostles, lying preachers, crooked workers–posing as Christ’s agents but sham to the core. And no wonder! Satan does it all the time, dressing up as a beautiful angel of light. So it shouldn’t surprise us when his servants masquerade as servants of God. But they’re not getting by with anything. They’ll pay for it in the end” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 MSG).

In early 1983, the Lord spoke to me when George and Hazel Hill were beginning Victory Christian Church, telling me that it was a coven of witches. What are witches? Are they ugly, old women dressed in black, with broomsticks, black cats, caldrons, and pointed hats? Are they diviners or female sorcerers? Here is how God defines witchcraft, and I believe this is the substance of what I was hearing that day:

“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the Word of the LORD, He hath also rejected thee from being king” (1 Samuel 15:23 KJV).

While it could well be that persons founding Victory practiced literal sorcery or divination, I believe what I heard was concerning a matter of rebellion. What is rebellion? It is one doing one’s own thing against the will of the rightful authority.

How may that look? When people go about establishing spiritual works like churches in Jesus Christ’s Name, even saying, “Thus said the Lord…” when He is not commissioning them to do so, this is rebellion, which, to God, is no different than witchcraft. To put His Name to our works is presumptuous and rebellious. The Miracle Channel is but an extension, a branch of the same tree.

This event is by no means an uncommon occurrence. Truly, it is the rule, rather than the exception. Jesus said:

Many will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your Name, and through Your Name throw out demons, and through Your Name do many wonderful works? And then I will say to them I never knew you! Depart from Me, those working lawlessness!” (Matthew 7:22-23 MKJV)

Jesus went on to say:

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on a rock. And the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house. And it did not fall, for it was founded on a rock. And everyone who hears these sayings of Mine and does not do them shall be compared to a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain came down, and the floods came, and the wind blew and beat on that house. And it fell, and great was its fall” (Matthew 7:24-27 MKJV).

God is faithful in warning. I have written to Victory and called The Miracle Channel, addressing their falsehood and constant campaigns for money, and they cut me off. I have spoken publicly against their ways, and sent them Prophecy to the Religious. They did not believe me; instead, they scoffed and denounced me. I have been a fool in their eyes.

A house built on sand, though it was a great house in men’s eyes, has fallen, though the work may continue. Where will Dick and Joan go? Even Joan knows she cannot trust Dick now, if she ever did. Yet they talked as though they were an ideal, Christian, married couple, spiritual giants and mentors. Who but fools can or will believe them?

Will they continue to press for importance in spiritual work, like Swaggart and the Bakkers? Will the “apostle” now take on “secular” work? Where? What kind? How? For whom?

Yes, David, the king of Israel, also committed adultery, and murder. But consider that his throne was preserved unto him. He was indeed God’s anointed. Yes, he fell, but his heart was still after God. This is not so with the Deweerts. They are finished, exposed as frauds by God Almighty. They will never resume their thrones.

Some proverbs:

A man who commits adultery stones himself to death and leaves many wounded.

As there is no secret commandment, so there is no secret sin.

To enjoy a moment of pleasure, man will throw away his soul for eternity; blessed is the one who loves God more than pleasure.

There are those who speak truth for evil’s sake because there is no truth in them.

As a plant comes forth from a seed hidden in the ground and bears after its kind, so secret sins will sprout forth and bear fruit.

The sword is appointed for the wicked, but the righteous will be spared.

As a fine mist, sexual temptation presents itself, mysterious and idyllic, then grows thicker and envelops the wayward one in darkness.

Can I fall? Yes, I can, for two reasons: first, I stand – it would not be a matter of exposure; second, God is quite able to bring me down in a heartbeat; I know it. I am but an earthen vessel and only by His grace do I stand.

And though I say, “I told you so!” I do not gloat over the Deweert affair or any other. Is it enough that I don’t gloat? No. I say it because I want people to know that if they have believed Deweert and his works, the works of men, they have been deceived:

“Concerning the works of men, by the word of Thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer” (Psalms 17:4 KJV).

They will continue to be deceived if they do not believe me, because I speak from the Lord; therefore I know whereof I speak. I speak by Him and He by me. If you still think me a fool, watch and see.

I have considered speaking again to Dick and Joan, but I am given that they will not hear me. However, Lord willing, Dick and Joan, if you read these things and wish to meet with me, I will be glad to meet with you, provided the Lord wills it. I know full well that God can turn things for you, wonderfully so, not so that you will continue in men’s works, but so that you can have true life in place of the phony lives you have lived in His Name. But you will go to your carnal “Christian” counselors, as you do even now, continuing in your sand, which is now in your eyes, noses, ears and mouths, and with your ruins fallen upon, and all about, you.

This is also a rebuke and warning to Ray Block, and those who continue in these works, whose origins are not of God or in His favor. Why destroy yourselves? Why work for nothing? Why tempt God with your ways? How can you escape taking and using His Name in vain? Why deceive yourselves and others? To what end? To Deweerts’ end alone can these things come.

The will of the Lord be done.

Satan’s Fallen Soldiers: Devious Devices of the Destroyer Discussed

Not only do Satan’s servants bring destruction to others, they suffer it themselves as the victims of their own deception. While Christ gives a deposit of pure gold, Satan gives a “UOI” (not an IOU), keeping his subjects under the yoke and bondage of serving themselves in his kingdom of darkness. Light solves that problem, when it is shone by God in Christ, and walked in by men. That is the Kingdom of God on earth.

Shame on you. Everything you speak is condemnation without forgiveness! Do you feel that if one falls down they can never recover? Have you ever read your Bible? It is all about a new life and forgiveness. Have you ever read “Forgive us our debts ” AS WE FORGIVE OTHERS” How about “Touch not God’s annointed and do my servants no harm.I believe the Deweerts are to be commended FOR STANDING TOGETHER IN THE Lord and spreading God’s Word in the face of all RELIGIOUS condemnation.May God forgive you according to your works!.My hat is off to the Deweerts to have the Faith and strength to stand and serve the Lord in the face of all Religious opposition.May God bless you all. It is our place to stand together against the enemy and allow our God to be our judge.Even Jesus didn”t come to judge but to save!!!!May the Lord our God have mercy on us all.!!!!!!!!!!!!

Christine, you are in great error, not knowing the Scriptures or their power, not knowing the Lord Jesus Christ in Spirit.

You’re snared in false doctrine and make many assumptions that hold you in darkness. Let me elaborate with facts and not just deal in “ad hominem,” as it may appear. But what I’ve said of you is true and not out of vengeance, unless it be the Lord’s vengeance as He speaks by me, which He does, and IS.

Tell me, did Jesus speak “forgiveness” or condemnation to the Pharisees, Scribes, and Sadducees? Take Matthew 23, for one of many examples. What did John say to the multitudes in Luke 3? You need to read the Scriptures and at our site, and not cherrypick. If you have a love of the Truth, you would learn before you speak and not dare say the things you have. There are many examples of Scriptural testimony to prove you wrong, so wrong.

Do I feel that if one falls, one cannot recover? No. And you have no right to ask that question based on anything I’ve said. But you assume.

And, you assume that Dick fell. He was never standing, except in falsehood. He was exposed for who he was and is. And if he repented, I would have no problem acknowledging and receiving him.

You lash out, but why, how, at what? More importantly, at Whom? Rhetorical.

“Have you ever read your Bible?” you ask me. Try reading at our site with reason, dealing with facts, instead of showing yourself so partisan and silly. You are the one who needs to pray and repent, Christine. You’re entirely out of line.

The Scriptures teach, and the Lord has taught me, to reprove the works of darkness. Your gospel is a phony one, a Frankenstinian concoction that destroys, a mixture of little Truth and much error. You are misled and mislead many.

Shame on YOU.

Forgiveness comes with confession and repentance. Until then, the Bible says, there’s no forgiveness.

“Touch not God’s anointed?” You assume Dick was anointed. How about that? While you falsely accuse me of judging that someone is false, which I’ve done by the revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Scriptures, you judge that someone false is true by your false notions. You’ve taken upon yourself the Lord’s Name in vain and what’s worse, you speak directly against Him when you oppose me because I am ONE with Him. So, who’s touching God’s anointed?

You can believe what you want about Deweerts standing boldly. So have many false teachers stood boldly, as I’ve proven, as the Lord has proven by me. You don’t know what you’re doing, Christine.

You call my words, “RELIGIOUS condemnation?” No, I don’t present any such thing. I speak the Truth and you are doing to me exactly what you accuse me of. I am a mirror to you and you think it’s me you see.

“May God forgive you according to your works”? What does that mean? You say we’re into something entirely new, that we must forgive. Don’t you think that if God were instructing us to forgive unconditionally, as you surely suggest, that He would do that with me, as well? So, nothing to worry about, right? You contradict yourself again and again.

Children of darkness stumble in it, not knowing where they go. I write this not for you primarily, but for others who can learn by it, Lord willing. Yet, if you were to take my rebuke to heart, there might be hope for you, too, if you repent. And, yes, you would receive God’s forgiveness. Till then, you have none coming to you.

“May God bless you all”? For what? Condemning God’s anointed, as you assume I do? Are you kidding me? God doesn’t bless those who curse His servants and people. You see how false and foolish you are?

And this I say, You are the exact kind of fruit the Deweerts produce. You are their evidence. You are their support. It is all evil from the hand of the one who comes as an angel of light. You prove my Word True, Christine.

Should I stand together with tares? Should I stand together with children of darkness? Am I not instructed by the Lord to have nothing to do with them or their works, to be separate from them? But you don’t know that, do you? Why? Because you are not a child of Light, a child of God, a sister of the Risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If you were, you wouldn’t be coming to the defense of the Deweerts. “In vain do they worship Me with their lips, but their hearts are from Me,” says the Lord of you and millions of others.

You are going to “allow God to judge”? Who do you think you are? God will and does judge, even as He does at this moment by me towards you. But you’re right in that it’s not YOUR place to judge. It is now my place to do so. The Scriptures are perfectly clear on that but you, being hard and blind, don’t receive it.

You want mercy? Then you need to repent. Perhaps the Lord will show mercy? We’ll see, won’t we? At the moment, you’re a mass of error and confusion, not standing against, but with, the enemy, the liar, false accuser, and murderer.

You ought not to rest assured after this. Jesus Christ has spoken to you today. I speak in His Authority.
