Bethel School of Prophets is run by Bethel Church in Redding California under the leadership of its two named “Apostles,” Bill Johnson and Kris Vallotton. Bethel, like all cults, is filled with aberrant, unbiblical teachings and doctrines of demons, including false manifestations of the Holy Spirit, grave sucking, and the Prosperity Gospel.
The Prosperity Gospel is a perversion of the gospel of Jesus Christ that teaches that Jesus’ primary purpose for his life, death, burial, and resurrection wasn’t to atone for sins but to make people who have enough “faith” healthy and wealthy. This false gospel carries with it several other false teachings such as positive confession, that is the ability to speak things into existence the way God does.
Bethel Redding is a hotbed of false apparitions, regularly blaspheming the Holy Spirit by attributing the works of men and demons to Him. One such notable occurrence which happens regularly is Bethel’s “glory clouds.” Glory clouds, they claim, are a manifestation of God during their worship, when, in fact, not only is it unbiblical, it has been thoroughly debunked.
Now, in a recently surfaced video of Bethel School of the Prophets, Vallotton and his co-hosts explain to the audience that the only difference between the charismatic cold-reading that they practice and what psychics practice is the team that they play for.
In this video, Bethel leaders explain when you go see a psychic, you’re handing control of your future over to demonic entities who then have the ability to manifest things in your life. This entire explanation is so bizarre that it doesn’t even warrant commentary suffice it to say that it’s all rank heresy. You just need to listen to it yourself.
