Neville Johnson is a certified false prophet and charlatan. I’ve written many articles on this site about Neville and his errant activities on earth.

WHY I’M HESITANT ABOUT SADHU SELVARAJ

I’ve always been hesitant about Prophet Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj. As a born-again Christian coming from a church that believes in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, I do affirm that God continues to give some people prophetic abilities for His purposes. I also believe, however, that we must always subject prophets to intense scrutiny. As Christians, we can’t just accept what people say and believe them at face value. We must exercise discernment and weigh truth claims against the standard of the Word.

Recently, there was an uproar caused by the irresponsible ABS-CBN reportage about a skin disease that is “unti-unting kumakalat sa Pangasinan” (gradually spreading in Pangasinan). Without any statistics to show for it, the TV network implied that the #MisteryosongSakitSaBandila could be the fulfillment of a prophecy. Obviously, they were referring to Sadhu Selvaraj’s prophecy made in 2013, together with his fellow prophet from India, Bro. Vincent Selvakumar.

Here are some videos of the prophecies:

 

 

 

Many Christians reacted in very affirming ways to the implied connection between #MisteryosongSakitSaBandila and Sadhu Selvaraj’s prophetic declarations. We deserve a MEGA FACEPALM for that.

As I have observed from conversations surrounding Sadhu Selvaraj’s prophecies, it is always a dead end: “If they come true, he’s a true prophet. If they don’t come true, it’s because the people repented.” Whatever happens, he’s always right. Although I disagree with that line of reasoning (on the basis of Deuteronomy 18:21-22 and 13:1-4), I will not dispute it for now because it would seem to be an effort in futility to do so.

Thus, this post is not intended to examine his or Bro. Selvakumar’s prophecies bit by bit. Instead, I would like to turn your attention to a doctrine taught by Sadhu Selvaraj which, in my opinion, should be a major reason for all Christians to genuinely reconsider whether or not his prophetic statements are of any value. The doctrine is that dead Biblical prophets or saints can and actually do help Christians achieve God’s purposes on Earth.

I was present in one of his gatherings in Manila a few years ago (I’ve forgotten the exact year) when, much to my surprise, he claimed that the prophet Joel was in our midst, imparting to him revelations he was supposed to tell the people. No, it wasn’t Joel Houston or Joel Osteen or Joel Lamangan. It was the prophet Joel son of Pethuel of the Bible he was talking about. It was the first time I heard someone claim that a Biblical prophet is personally and spiritually coming down from heaven to deliver a message through him.

Apparently, this is a doctrine inseparable from Sadhu Selvaraj’s prophetic claims. In 10:16 of the first video above, he says:

“The armies of God will be stationed in this land. And they will wage war against the enemies of God. The kingdom of God, the angels of God and the saints of God—forget about the Catholic teaching of praying to the saints (I’m not talking about that right now. I’m talking to you about the true ministry of angels and the true ministry of the saints)—they will come down.”

Sadhu Selvaraj promises in the video that dead saints will personally come down to help Christians accomplish God’s work in the Philippines. He immediately footnotes that this is not about the Roman Catholic doctrine of praying to the saints. However, it is difficult for me to ignore how strikingly similar this claim is to the Roman Catholic saintly “apparitions” long-disputed by born-again Christians.

As Christians, we do not believe that the spirits of dead people can and should interact with anyone on Earth (Deuteronomy 18:10-12). This is one of the fundamental differences we have with Roman Catholicism. All human beings who lived in Biblical times are now dead. Their spirits are in the afterlife and there is no Biblical indication that any of them can come back to Earth for any divine purpose.

Yes, 1 Samuel 28 tells us of Samuel going back from the dead because of the stubbornness of Saul. During the Transfiguration, we also see Moses and Elijah appearing in the presence of Jesus and some disciples. But these are isolated cases that happened for very narrow and specific purposes. They were in no way commonplace Biblical phenomena, and were never narrated in such a way as to be interpreted as prescribing the intervention of dead saints in the advancing of God’s kingdom.

If we will accept Sadhu Selvaraj’s teaching that the souls of the righteous dead can come back to Earth, we might as well accept the Roman Catholic claims of apparitions of the Blessed Mary. Besides, these alleged Marian apparitions have more documentary proof than Sadhu Selvaraj’s claim that dead holy men are in the business of aiding Christians nowadays.

In order to justify the saintly interventions, Sadhu Selvaraj usually cites Matthew 27 as a Biblical precedent. Again, in the video, he says:

“If you read Matthew 27:50, 51, 52, after the death of the Lord Jesus Christ the graves were opened and the saints of God arose from the dead. And after the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, He appeared to many people in the holy city. The saints of God appeared there and showed themselves there. And they witnessed for the Lord Jesus Christ saying that He is the Messiah. In the same manner the saints of God and the angels of God will station in this land to work with you. What a blessed call that is! What a great and awesome privilege you have received from the Almighty God! But at the same time, if you will fail in your calling, great will be your judgment.”

When Sadhu Selvaraj uses the vague phrase “in the same manner”, what does he actually mean? Does he mean that the graves will be opened? Does he mean that the saints of God will appear and expose themselves to the public? Does he mean that they will also verbally evangelize non-believers? I honestly want to know. Because if I were to believe the Bible, it is now the Holy Spirit’s assigned task to aid believers witness for Christ.

As I end this post, I just want to say that I respect Sadhu Selvaraj and his followers. The fact that I devoted precious time addressing his message is evidence of my respect to his apparent influence to the body of Christ in the Philippines. However, I have genuine questions that need genuine answers. If the points I’ve raised here can be reasonably corrected, please do send me a message and I would be willing to make another blog post endorsing Sadhu Selvaraj.

In the mean time, I remain hesitant to believe his teachings. Sure, God can send angels to help us in any way. But as far as the Bible is concerned, we are complete in Christ (Colossians 2:10). We have no need of angelic apparition or transcendental meditation or astral plane experience to validate our intimacy with God (Colossians 2:18). Nobody needs to be spiritually brought to heaven while in a state of trance just to strengthen his/her relationship with Jesus. We have the Holy Spirit and He is our parakletos (John 14:16)—the one who comes alongside us, our ally, our comforter, our helper. He is more than enough for us!

“Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.” 1 John 4:1

Pray and do something for the Philippines always.

When Sadhu Selvaraj uses the vague phrase “in the same manner”, what does he actually mean? Does he mean that the graves will be opened? Does he mean that the saints of God will appear and expose themselves to the public? Does he mean that they will also verbally evangelize non-believers? I honestly want to know. Because if I were to believe the Bible, it is now the Holy Spirit’s assigned task to aid believers witness for Christ.

As I end this post, I just want to say that I respect Sadhu Selvaraj and his followers. The fact that I devoted precious time addressing his message is evidence of my respect to his apparent influence to the body of Christ in the Philippines. However, I have genuine questions that need genuine answers. If the points I’ve raised here can be reasonably corrected, please do send me a message and I would be willing to make another blog post endorsing Sadhu Selvaraj.

In the mean time, I remain hesitant to believe his teachings. Sure, God can send angels to help us in any way. But as far as the Bible is concerned, we are complete in Christ (Colossians 2:10). We have no need of angelic apparition or transcendental meditation or astral plane experience to validate our intimacy with God (Colossians 2:18). Nobody needs to be spiritually brought to heaven while in a state of trance just to strengthen his/her relationship with Jesus. We have the Holy Spirit and He is our parakletos (John 14:16)—the one who comes alongside us, our ally, our comforter, our helper. He is more than enough for us!

“Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.” 1 John 4:1

Pray and do something for the Philippines always.

Further warnings about the false prophet Neville Johnson

In this series, I am going to provide further warnings about the false prophet Neville Johnson who is a New Zealander by origin like me.

I attended his church for one year in 1980 which was the year before Neville Johnson was found out for having oral sex in Auckland, New Zealand motels under the premise of taking a succession of three young beautiful church secretaries there for prayer and fasting activities over many years.

The church was Queen Street Assemblies of God Church (AOG) which was meeting in the Auckland Town Hall, the largest facility in central Auckland at the time. A major building project was underway to build a church structure on the Auckland waterfront with seating capacity of 5000.

In 1980 I was a young man age 24. I have never met Neville Johnson personally. I did know Rev Victor Johnston who is the father of one of the young ladies Neville Johnson sexually abused. Rev Johnston is unrelated to Neville Johnson and has a “t” in the spelling of his surname.

Queen Street AOG

Queen Street AOG, at the time in 1980, was the largest single Pentecostal Church in Australia or New Zealand by far. The next largest congregations of Assemblies of God congregations in Australia and New Zealand were about 400. Any church at the time of any denomination which achieved 400 people sitting in church on a Sunday was considered a large and successful congregation.

My father Rev Don Elley

In 1972 my father Rev Reuben Donald Elley had built the number of people attending Khandallah Presbyterian Church to 400 plus a large Sunday School of 300. There were far more than 400 on the membership roll. This church would have been one of the largest if not the largest in the Presbyterian Church in New Zealand at the time. Even today it would be one of the largest if not the largest.

My father Rev Don Elley, as he was called, was a colleague and close friend of Rev Victor “Vic” Johnston. I knew Vic personally and closely. My father and Vic were both Professors at the New Zealand Bible College. Both were highly trained with advanced Theological degrees. Vic lectured in Old Testament Theology and I think he had a Masters in Theology or maybe a Doctorate. He was learned in the Old Testament and Hebrew. He would have been very knowlegable across the Bible.

Rev Victor Johnston becomes head of Zion Bible College

In 1977 Neville Johnson the head pastor of Queen Street AOG recruited Rev Victor Johnston to head Zion Bible College which was Neville Johnson’s humble Bible College which met in a large house in Three Kings, Auckland.

I visited there once because a friend of mine Alan was a student there.

Rev Victor Johnson had become involved in the New Zealand Charismatic movement and he was seeking a more spiritual calling by leaving the evangelical low-cut spiritual New Zealand Bible College to help Neville Johnson at the super-spiritual Queen Street AOG’s Zion Bible College.

An eye-witness account

I would point out that all the above information is from my memory and so it is an eye-witness account. I have written many articles on Neville Johnson and his errors and of how he is a certified false prophet, charlatan and extreme con-artist. If you google “Pastor Neville Johnson Perth” or “”Pastor Neville Johnson Academy of Light Perth” you’ll find them. I have written a very detailed account of what transpired at Queen Street AOG with the young secretaries.

Top leaders of Pentecostal Churches in Australia and New Zealand who are or were false prophets, false teacher and wolves

I’ve written articles on this my personal blog site, which is very popular and widely read, about the many top leaders of Pentecostal Churches in Australia and New Zealand in the past 50 years who are false prophets (such as Phil Pringle of C3 Global Church and Brian Houston of Hillsong mega-church), false teachers (Phil Pringle, Brian Houston, Frank Houston, Joel A’Bell and Robert Fergusson of Hillsong Global Church for example), wolves (all of them), charlatans (Neville Johnson, Brian Houston, Frank Houston), scammers (Brian Houston, Frank Houston, Neville Johnson) and/or who have committed pedophilia (Frank Houston, Jim Williams and Wayne Hughes), adultery (Neville Johnson, Pat Mesiti, Jim Williams, Ian Bilby, Clark Taylor), sex addiction (Neville Johnson, Pat Mesit, Frank Houston, Jim Williams, Ian Bilby), homosexuality (Frank Houston), financial fraud or mismanagement (Brian Houston, Neville Johnson), pathological lying (Neville Johnson, Brian Houston, Phil Pringle, Pat Mesiti, Jim Williams, Frank Houston), protecting pedophiles (Brian Houston protected his father Frank and is due to be charged with pedophile protection crimes soon).

This blog-site has had 400,000 views

This blog-site has had almost 400,000 views in the past 5 years since I started it.

Every day 300-600 readers read 500-1000 articles on this site.

The number of readers is more than doubling every year.

When Brian Houston appeared before the Australian Royal Commission the number of views spiked to 1800 per day.

When Brian Houston appeared before the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in October 2014 the number of views spiked to 1800 per day.

A leading article about Frank Houston’s lifelong self-confessed pedophilia has had over 20,000 views. This article is entitled, “Pastor Frank Houston. Part one. Frank Houston’s pedophile activities”, and was published on 13 September 2012, two years before the Royal Commission.

This blog-site and Frank Houston boy victim AHA’s testimony are the two main reasons the Royal Commission called in Brian Houston, Hillsong and the Australian Christian Churches leaders by subpoena.

As a consequence the Royal Commission recommended Brian Houston be charged for pedophile protection crimes.

Pastor Neville Johnson

Please read my articles about Neville Johnson and decide for yourself about whether or not this man is a false prophet, charlatan and Ponzi scheme scammer. Apart from false doctrines, false prophecies, unconfessed sins relating to his time at Queen Street Assemblies of God in the 1970s to 1980s, Neville Johnson has taken two readers of this site for large sums of money in Ponzi schemes. One man had $100,000 conned and stolen from him by Neville Johnson.

Neville Johnson spiritually exposed

I feel I have already pretty thoroughly exposed Neville Johnson as a spiritual charalatan and crook in many previous articles on this site but it has been brought to my attention by the interest shown in my articles in the Statistics section of the site, which only I can access, that Neville Johnson’s profile is increasing. I was wondering why and then I saw he is speaking at ‘prophetic conferences’ in the UK, America, Australia and other places.

I have become interested in who Neville is associating with and my research has led me, not surprisingly, to discover that the other so-called prophets Neville is associating with and sharing the platform with at these conference, are also false prophets.

My comments:

The organising committee for the Australian Prophetic End-Time movement is a group of seven churches. Whenever this kind of typology such as ‘seven churches’ is used, in my mind it raises a red flag.

The seven churches have already been listed in the book of Revelation and it is unlikely, if not impossible, that the following motley collection of small churches is going to be chosen as some kind of end-time seven churches. More likely and I think definitely, we here have Lucifer the Angel of Light playing with well-meaning Christians.

But at what point do well-meaning Christians become dangerous? and at what point do dangerous Christians spreading deception and spiritual death in the name of Christ become culpable?

Below are listed ‘seven churches’ of the Australian Prophetic End-Time movement which appears on the their website called ‘Come Lord Jesus’.

Please note the Indian Nepalese links to these churches.

Indians and Nepalese must be careful to get full deliverance before they launch out in Christian ministry, be very careful in regards to ‘super-spirituality’ and be very careful they stay close to the Holy Bible.

There is a tendency, given the highly spiritual nature of Indians, for them to be susceptible to super-spirituality and deception
