Someone needs to say something. Serious false doctrine is being taught at my home church in Anchorage. And in this message, Mark says he’s making Anchorage his home base from which to spread this false gospel that is keeping ‘ONE’ from happening — Jesus’ heart-CRY for us in John 17 — “that the world will know.”
Please be Biblical so God can move?
“For the time will come when they will not listen to the sound doctrine, but, having itching ears, will heap up for themselves teachers after their own lusts; and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside to FABLES.” – 2 Tim. 4:3-4

When Mark Drake says to ignore what Jesus clearly said about overcoming in Revelation 2 and 3, this is THE SPIRITUAL AVALANCHE Steve Hill is talking about. Mark Drake is snowing the people with Steve Hill’s Lies #2,3 & 5. Look especially at Lie #5:
Spiritual Avalanche – Steve Hill: The 7 Great Lies in the Church Today — Overemphasis of Prosperity • Exaggerated View of Grace (grace-changers nullify all divine warnings) • Antinomianism = against rules, so “anything goes” (but “Jesus didn’t set us free to sin; He set us free from sin”) • Gazing Upon Man, not God • Challenging the Authority of the Word (God didn’t really mean what He said) • Rejecting Hell • Universal Reconciliation
The challenging of God’s authority goes back to the Garden of Eden, starting with the serpent’s challenge to Eve: “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” (Gen. 3:1). This satanic challenge was twofold: First, did God really say that? And second, God didn’t really mean what He said. After all, you won’t die if you eat from the tree (vv. 1-5).
On May 5, 2013 at Abbott Loop Community Church, Mark Drake taught ”Living Set Free: Galatians 3″. The podcast is available here. I transcribed this, starting at minute-45:
Be careful when you read the first few chapters of the book of Revelation, where it repeatedly says: ‘to him who overcomes will I do this,’ and’ to him who overcomes will I do that,’ because the temptation of the Devil is: ‘well you’re not overcoming everything yet, so you don’t get that.’
Well, I’ve got good news for you: there is an Overcomer Who has overcome, and if you’ve received Him by faith His overcomingness lives in you. I’m an overcomer because the Overcoming One lives in me.
Paul says the law has been fulfilled. Jesus fulfilled it. And if He fulfilled it and He lives in you the law has already been fulfilled in you. The righteous demands of the law were fulfilled by Jesus.
And because He is in me and I am in Him. [unintelligible] sitting around the dinner table at the last supper — ‘if you abide in Me and I abide in You’ —
I am in Him and He’s in me — whatever He’s accomplished I get the benefit of….
But what did Jesus really say while “sitting around the dinner table at the last supper?” Jesus said: Only those who “keep My commandments” will “remain in My love,” and they’ll bear much fruit. Those who don’t will be thrown into the fire and burned.
Abiding in Christ requires obedience. We must overcome!
Jesus in John 15:
4 Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can’t bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. 5 I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If a man doesn’t remain in me, he is thrown out as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it will be done for you. 8 “In this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; and so you will be my disciples. 9 Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and remain in his love. 11 I have spoken these things to you, that my joy may remain in you, and THAT YOUR JOY MAY BE MADE FULL. 12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another, even as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends, if you do whatever I command you.
Jesus really did say we must overcome in Revelation 2 and 3.
1 “And to the angel of the assembly in Sardis write: He who has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars says these things: “I know your works, that you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. 2 Wake up, and keep the things that remain, which you were about to throw away, for I have found no works of yours perfected before…God. 3 Remember therefore how you have received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If therefore you won’t watch, I will come as a thief, and you won’t know what hour I will come upon you. 4 Nevertheless you have a few names in Sardis that did not defile their garments. They will walk with me in white, for they are worthy. 5 He who OVERCOMES will be arrayed in white garments, and I will in no way blot his name out of the book of life, and I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

And what Paul really said about who goes to heaven in Galatians is also shown, along with many other examples.
