Tired of Bible Pictionary? Play Omega: The End Times Board Game tonight!
Wow! I just looked this up at that church’s bookstore, and I think they really are serious…as if the name of the church wasn’t silly enough (IHOP?). It boggles the mind.
Why not just read the Bible?
IHOP – “Who needs the Bible when we can do everything else?”
MY heart sinks every time I see them on TV…

There’s no money in just reading the Bible.
No tag line? How about “For a limited time only” or “Get it before it’s too late.”
“Don’t get Left Behind”
(BTW, Issues, Etc. had a piece on Mike Bickle’s eschatology in the not too distant past. Not dispensational, more like a Pentecostalist theonomy. These people expect to be waging end times war. So, in this game don’t expect either “pin the tail on the Antichrist” or a discussion of Vos’ two age model.)
“These people expect to be waging end times war.”
Correction, they have been waging End Times War in the Middle East, unfortunately the “War on Terror”/ prejudices have blinded most people to the consequences of this theology.
I know what I want for my birthday this year!!!
I have been to IHOP many times — it is 24/7 music bands and prayer (a perpetual youth group, with no disrespect to youth groups). Bickle is one of the Kansas City Prophets. You can hear it in his voice in the clip there. That voice draws massive swarms of youth who then go out and emulate him and his thinking. This is a movement to watch. A friend and fellow pastor, Keith Gibson (his church is in the shadow of IHOP) is writing a book chronicling the movement.
The last time I went, I could only describe the experience as walking into a Canaanite Temple. I’ve been in Canaanite Temple complexes (archaeologically), but what I mean is that hundreds of people were jerking and gyrating to a hypnotic nothing rift played by people who looked to be in a daze as even children (I would say 50 children) gathered on the side in a group and moved like chickens or fell on the floor. Weeping and tongues-speaking were everywhere.
All of this flows from Mike’s theology. Again, this goes on for 24/7 — bands play non-stop. It is an attraction to up and coming musicians who want to practice their skills in front of a crowd. Mike has merged teenage desires with Canaanite practices.
I can’t wait for Keith’s book. I am sad he has to write about this, but he has to.
I guess an amillenialist can’t play, can he?
