WANDERING STARS: Contending for the Faith with the New Apostles and Prophets
Keith Gibson, with Foreword by Craig Branch
"The author of 'Wandering Stars', Keith Gibson is both a pastor and a staff-member with us at the Apologetics Resource Center, where I am the director. These two callings provide Keith with a healthy blend of sound doctrine (and correcting heresy, 1 Tim. 1:3-7), and its application in shepherding the flock.
Early on in the book Keith addresses the first hurdle of the opposing views on whether miraculous spiritual gifts continue today or have ceased. Keith explains the positions but moves past that to the fact that even non-cessationists should be of great concern for them as well.
We want Christians to better understand the reality of the miraculous power of the Holy Spirit in and through His church and that we don't only have academic head knowledge of Biblical principles to follow. But the Church must understand the dangers of false doctrines. Keith addresses the numerous errors and practices that flow out of the basic Apostolic and Prophetic error as well.
The Scripture instructs us to 'be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the word of truth' (2 Tim. 2:15). I strongly commend studying through this book carefully as it corrects the errors and presents the truth. Jesus said, 'abide in My word and you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free' (Jn. 8:31-31)." - Craig Branch, Director of The Apologetics Resource Center, Birmingham, AL
"It is a serious thing to claim to speak for God. So serious, in fact, that a prophet who claimed to speak for God and whose words did not come to pass was to be put to death according to the Old Testament. God takes both His Name and His word so seriously that He gave some of the harshest rebukes in all the Old Testament to those who were claiming to bring revelation from Him that He had not sent.
One final note. There is always the temptation when dealing with a subject of this nature, to pull out the most outlandish quotes in an attempt to make one's point more forcefully. Though it is certain that some will feel that this is exactly what has been done, I have attempted to resist this temptation. While an extreme example has occasionally been used in order to demonstrate how heretical the movement is at its fringes, for the most part, I have attempted to use quotes from those considered more 'mainstream' within the apostolic and prophetic movement. It is my desire to demonstrate that the issues addressed in this book are rampant within the community and not isolated in one or two marginal teachers.
It is my sincere prayer that this book will be used in some small measure to awaken the church to the seriousness of the errors being propagated within the apostolic/prophetic movement and to call the church back to the truth." - Keith Gibson
