Skip to comments.International House of Prayer (IHOP) raided for guns; one arrested
Posted on 01/05/2010 10:02:04 AM PST by vladimir998
An International House of Prayer in Independence was searched overnight...new details are still coming in. We've been told that authorities are still on scene investigating. The raid began about 9:00pm Monday and included the church as well as the pastor's house nearby. A member of the church was reportedly arrested on federal fire arms charges.
Anyone know about this group?
When churches start arming against government tyranny, the end must certainly be near.
Did a google search on the founder Mike Bickel and this is what I found.
Yes. The International House of Prayer is committed to praying 24/7/365 until Christ returns. Nothing more or less as far as I know.
Maybe a few bad apples got in.
IHOP???? Sorry I always think of Pancakes....
This was a group connected to some of those wacky, so-called “Kansas City Prophets”, a group of Charismatic, false prophets that had a pretty big following in the 1980’s and 90’s. More than one was involved in sexual immorality, and one, Paul Cain, who was perhaps the most prominent among them, admitted to homosexuality a few years ago.
These “prophets” have been at the center of bogus and blasphemous “outpourings of the spirit” including the “Toronto Blessing” and Lakeland “Revival” (led by another false prophet caught in sexual immorality).
One church member was arrested and was being held on a federal firearms violation. Three other church members were arrested and released during Monday's search, authorities said.
The sheriff's department tells NBC Action News the non-denominational church peaked at one time at about 300 members, but currently only has about 60 members.’
Investigators have not released any more information about what the investigation included, but said late Tuesday morning they had arrested and released several church members over the weekend for unspecified reasons.
A previous version of this Web story published early Tuesday morning incorrectly stated the church was affiliated with the International House of Prayer, which has facilities in Grandview and Kansas City, but is not involved in this investigation.Tuesday morning incorrectly stated the church was affiliated with the International House of Prayer, which has facilities in Grandview and Kansas City, but is not involved in this investigation.
Not sure what to make of this.
Actually, this organization was started by some of the worst apples of the Charismatic movement of the 80’s and 90’s.
a person associated with the IHOP died about three weeks ago in a car accident on black ice on December 23rd, 2009.
