Introduction to WOF, WOF Part I.
You have heard about the young man that cried “Wolf, wolf” and until finally no one believed him. Well, this preacher is going to cry WOF, WOF with little expectations for heeding, but this time the acronym means Word of Faith falsely so called.
Preaching and Christianity cannot be considered the same in 2019.
Before the present falling away from sound doctrine in Christianity, the word in WORD OF FAITH would have been as:
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” (II Timothy 4:2 KJV)
Since the falling away the word in word has taken on the meaning of a “word of faith” spoken by a fake believer to move God with a certain kind of “faith force” to do something that He did not intend to do anyway, (yes, sacri-relgious is this WOF, WOF, and fundamentally although popular is idolatry plain and simple) so little preachers must adjust to the world of Christianity in which we now live and go past II Timothy 4:3,4 to II Timothy 4:5 for it is no longer sufficient to just “Preach the Word”:
“But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.” (II Timothy 4:5)
What Preachers and Pastors are NOW relegated to?
Many times we feel helpless and useless as all we can do as Preachers and Pastors is to (1) observe everything that is happening around us in the world, sort of like sociologists, in Christianity, in our church and churches and denomination, and in other denominations—say, come to think of it that is quite a lot and with proper Bible lead and spirit led observations, we can with Jude contend against WOF, WOF with “the faith once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3); (2) of course we are going to have to endure afflictions because as preachers of sound doctrine we are now in the minority, the heathens in high places are raging against God, His Son, and The Bible with Gnosticism and paganism, as well as God’s people are imagining a vain things like WOF, Passion, Gnosticism, and who would have thought it before the falling away, God’s people are conjuring up with vivid and creative imaginations just good ole basic and fundamental idolatry in the sense of Romans 1:15; (3) well, we must also because of the falling away buckle down more on evangelism with the real Word of God against two fronts, the heathen at the top of theology and like the Jesus Seminar and the God’s people of the many present false movements of WOF and Passion; and (4) more and more we must prove ourselves as the Preachers of Sound Doctrine during these times of unsound doctrine as they increase exponentially departing from sound doctrine, heaping up itching ears teachers for itching ears church members and TBN viewers, busy turning away from the real truth of the Bible and creating Christian Fables like Gnosticism and WOF,WOF.
The Influence of WOF on the great apostasy.
Yes, WOF, WOF has changed it all according to II Timothy 4:3,4 which is in between the Preach the Word and the Observations of theology and the world:
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (II Timothy 4:3,4)
Because it is so popular with the largest TV network in the world, TBN, bet you never thought of WOF, WOF as a Christian Fable. How could it be since there are so many large churches like Hillsong and so many large movements like Passion who base on their faith and risk preaching on WOF, WOF?
WOF, WOF has many different meanings.
Of course, WOF, WOF can have many different meanings according to the online acronym finder at https://www.acronymfinder.com/WOF.html . They have found and verified 34 distinct meanings of the abbreviation WOF, and at the reference link above have ranked them according to popularity of usage. For example, those with a four out of five-star ranking in order of popularity are:
Rank Abbr. Meaning
WOF Wall of Flesh (gaming)
WOF Walk of Fame (various organizations)
WOF Women of Faith
WOF Workin’ on Fire (band)
WoF Worlds of Fun (Missouri amusement park)

WOF Word of Faith (religious denomination)
WOF Wheel of Fortune
WOF Without Family (Department of State Living Allowance criteria)
WOF Worldwide Orphans Foundation (Maplewood, NJ)
WOF Women on Fire (est. 2003)
We little preachers of the real Word are going to make some observations of this sociological phenomenon of language abbreviation; for example, it has been admitted some ignorance of WOF as a Wall of Flesh game. Wait a minute, it is recalled seeing that on TV at least once as a bevy of attractive females on a bleacher, or wall, with certain numbers of money. Say, we don’t miss everything in a preoccupation with the Bible as the Word of God—divine in origin, absolute in authority, and with sufficient message of the sufficient Jesus. And surely you would agree that American society is becoming more and more a feminine society, do you notice that in the top WOF, WOFs above out of 12 one-fourth of them apply to women, even if you do not consider the WOF for Word of Faith which increasing is dominating with women like Beth Moore (who is being proposed as President of the SBC), Joyce Myer a disciple of Kenneth Hagin the father of Word of faith, and Christine Caine who a looney out of Australia always playing the underdog as she is a second generation Greek.
Please accept an Apology on WOF as Word of Faith (not)!
No doubt you have noticed an increased number of blogs and messages from SunGrist on the word of faith movement, passion, and paganism and Gnosticism. Yes, that is true but with a failure to identify WOF for word of faith as bad, even though it may sound so good like it is the Bible faith or the Bible Word. NO, IT IS NOT; IT IS THE OPPOSITE. Now in the Bible “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”, in this WOF movement which acronym calls a denomination, and perhaps it is, faith is a faith force postulated by secret knowledge (gnosticism) and intuition (what women are famous for) that can move God to do what He did not plan to do; turns faith inward on self rather than on God, the Bible, and Christ, and therefore is the ultimate in the paganism of idolatry of Romans 1.
Recently this observant preacher gritted his teeth through an hour of Passion 2019 listening to Christine Caine, because we need to know and they do need some adult supervision, wondering why she repeated so often the word “faith”, faith, faith, and the gist of her message was taking a risk with your faith. Well, if you have understood Kenneth Hagin and the Word of Faith movements, you know that in spite of all these 48,000 college students that must have some faith as they came to a Passion Conference supposedly to witness for the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible. Well the difference is that to Christian and other WOFers, this faith on unsound doctrine is sort of like the force of Darth Vader and Star Wars that can even bend an inept and non-sovereign god into moving some mountain. (If you listen to the now most popular WOFers of the Passion Movement you will find very little respect for the real God, our Heavenly Father of the Bible and the real Lord Jesus Christ; in fact, you will find consistent with their basic beliefs in idolatry down right ridicule of the real God and Jesus and the real Bible. Of course, like Satan whom they really serve and follow, they know for popularity and acceptance to quote from the Bible.)
In this time of the Falling away of unsound doctrine, God’s people with Christian Fables of II Timothy 4:3,4 are becoming one in idolatry, paganism, and Gnosticism with the HEATHEN.
“Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: The Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath and vex them in his sore displeasure.
Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. Be wise now therefore, O ye kings be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
Serve the LORD with fear and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
The sovereign God of the Bible and the Universe has a mountain of His own that He is going to move, the Mount Zion which first as the whole earth He will clear by fire, and then will plant on it the New Jerusalem lowered down from heaven. And one last note in this part I although there is much more to say on this number one Christian Fable today, and that last note is this: The sure way you can tell the good preachers from the bad preachers with the good books from the bad unsound books is to check them against the Holy Spirit’s work of convicting against sin, righteousness, and judgment. If you can not hear or find those words, get out of there!
