Bob Hartley: Receive Your Hope Hearing Aids

Bob Hartley's latest piece is entitled: From the Counsel Table of the Lord: Receive Your Hope Hearing Aids. It can be read in full here. Sometimes one does wonder what can come next. In September 2010 Bob gave us Hopeful Kings And Queens. Then in December 2010, we were given The Holy Ghost Glory Train A must read since Bob sat on a porch swing with Jesus and they discussed the Hope Craftmen. In April 2011 Bob gave us Prophetic Eyeglasses and Hearing Aids Obviously no-one has received the hearing aids, so here is Bob saying receive them.

In this latest epic he goes on to say: The Next Chapter in the Book of Hope: "Gaining New Hope Hearing Aids" As I was with the Lord in the "Classroom of Useful Information," the Lord began to share from the second chapter of the "Book of Hope." This chapter taught about the right, hopeful "Hearing Aids" that would enable His Hope Craftsmen to hear His voice and become a company of hopeful Kingdom hearers. These hearing aids of hope were a golden key that would unlock the knowledge of the true nature of God and would enable Hope Craftsmen to become a force of hope for cities and nations. What is this Book of Hope? It cannot be the Bible since Genesis 2 does not mention hearing aids. How did Bob hear all this if he did not have this golden key? If this key were necessary in order to unlock the knowledge of the true nature of God how did Bob Hartley therefore receive this revelation? The Bible reveals the true nature of God and it is available to everyone - not just a chosen few like Bob.

This is all gnostic nonsense. Bob is making out that he has secret knowledge and the access to God's mysteries. Therefore, the only way you can tap into these mysteries is by listening to Bob. This might play well with the International Coalition of Apostles but Bob is wandering away from the truth and the sad fact is that he is leading others in the same direction.

The saddest thing he says is Even when I was at my lowest point and on drugs, I was his delight. He treated me as a friend and confided in me, looking past my brokenness, and he always believed in my future. There are two problems here. Firstly, does the Lord need to confide in us? And secondly, looking past my brokenness is not repentance. He is saying here that Jesus ignored his sin. Not everyone who experiences brokenness will meet the Lord only those to whom the gospel has been preached might.

The Bible does mention mysteries; but those things which are not revealed, are not for us to know and as such, they remain mysteries, perhaps even for eternity. This is Bob's problem: he does not rely on the Reformation principle of Sola Scriptura, that is the Bible alone, for his revelation and knowledge, but believes he can tap into God's mysteries. Thus he speaks things which God has not said and therefore he speaks presumptiously (see Deuteronomy 18 v22). This means he is a false prophet and one of those to whom John referred to when he said: Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. 1John 2 vv18-19. We can see here the accuracy and fulfillment of John's prophecy nearly two thousand years later.
