The Other Side of the River by Kevin Reeves, Lighthouse Trails Publishing, $12.95 list price, paperback.

The Other Side of the River is Kevin Reeves’ biographical account of his time spent involved with a church that was part of a movement called the “River”, also known as the River Revival, the Third Wave, and the Latter Rain. This movement includes many Word of Faith and prosperity gospel preachers such as Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Jesse DuPlantis, Bill Johnson, Kenneth Hagin, and others.

Reeves began to question the claims of outrageous and unbibilcal spiritual manifestations and soon discovered blatant discrepancies between what his church leaders were teaching and what scripture really said. The more of the elements of false teaching he uncovered, the more he found himself a target of threats and alienation from other church members but no matter what the cost, he was determined to save himself, his family, and as many other members of his congregation as he could.

Some of the topics Reeves addresses as false teaching include the Word of Faith/Prosperity Gospel movement, seeking “signs and wonders”, valuing experience over scripture, holy laughter, being “slain” in the spirit, visions and prophecies, the misuse of spiritual gifts, questionable worship practices, encouraging mystical experiences, the emphasis of Jesus’ humanity over his deity, claims that we are gods ourselves, and seeking to establish the kingdom of God here and now on Earth, to name a few.
What Reeves frequently observed was that if someone supposedly had an unusual experience or manifestation, the validity of his or her claim was rarely questioned.

Letter to the Editor: Lighthouse Trails Books Help Us Defend the Faith

Aug 9th, 2013 Posted in Book/DVD Reviews | Comments Off on Letter to the Editor: Lighthouse Trails Books Help Us Defend the Faith

Dear LHTE,

I have just finished Ray Yungen’s book A Time of Departing.  I cannot stress enough, what a great book this is on contemplative prayer, and all that is connected with the ancient mystical practices.  I would encourage everyone to read this, as it is a comprehensive book on what is happening in our churches, and the world around us.  He makes no accusations, that he does not back up, and you can see the study, and research he has put into writing this book.  I consider myself blessed that LHT, publishes these kinds of books, as I know they are not considered popular.

I also have read Ray’s book For Many Shall Come in My Name, and Kevin Reeves book, The Other Side of the River, and Warren Smith’s book, False Christ Coming, and I have learned so much from these authors.  I have recommended these books to friends and family, and they have made it into the hands of pastors, and others who are caught up into the Emergent Church.  When I defend the faith to others, I can do it, because of these authors, as they have written a wealth of information, and there are no other books that are such great resources.  If you are a watchman on the wall, these books should be in your library.

Blessings

When mystical experiences and strange doctrines overtake his church, one man risks all to find the truth—A true story.

Description: A compelling and deeply personal account of a young man’s spiritual plunge into a movement called the “River.” Sometimes referred to as the River Revival, the Third Wave or the Latter Rain, this movement is marked by bizarre manifestations, false prophecies and esoteric revelations. Warnings of divine retribution hold many adherents in a bondage of fear, making them afraid to speak out or even question those things they are taught and are witness to.

In a biographical setting, The Other Side of the River, is a powerful and needed warning to the body of Christ. In a day and age when church-growth techniques mixed with mystical practices are leaving a wreckage of human lives littered with the debris of false doctrine. For Kevin Reeves, his determination to rescue his family came to the forefront, even if the cost was high and even if he had to stand alone. His journey back into the freedom and simplicity of Jesus Christ would be worth the price.

Author Bio:
Kevin Reeves has been a free lance writer for nearly twenty years. His articles and columns have been featured in various newspapers and magazines, including Alaskan Southeaster. His articles on heretical church movements have been translated into three languages. Kevin lives in Alaska with his wife and daughter.
