For 12 years, Kevin Reeves was a member and even an elder of a Latter Rain church that he says was “moved by every wind of doctrine.”
He was part of a Signs and Wonders movement that was exciting and different from anything he had ever experienced, but eventually he started seeing different signs of practices and teachings that did not line up with Scripture. Today Kevin will share his testimony about what happened when he tried to fix it, by addressing issues that were contrary to the Gospel itself.
Kevin says there is a “River” that is flowing into congregations all over the world. Deceptively beautiful, it gently carries you along after you’ve stepped into its teasing current for the first time, until the powerful undertow eventually pulls you midstream. Once there, while you plunge headlong into raging whitewater, the other shoreline is suddenly evident. Strewn with the wreckage of human lives and littered with the debris of false doctrine, this “River’s” farther shore is at last visible, and it is frightening.
Kevin is the author of a book titled The Other Side of the River, an excellent background about his experience with the River movement and the research he has done since then to expose it.
Kevin’s website shares his concerns to help the body of Christ to know about the dangers of the “River” movement. It goes by a lot of different names — the River Revival, Latter Rain, The Third Wave — and it 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. But for the seeking heart, there is a way out, back into the freedom and simplicity of Christ Jesus, and to experience again the joy of following Him rather than the latest Christian fad.
Says Kevin, “It is my hope to provide in this web site the Biblical knowledge and tools to help the seeker to honestly examine the teachings, practices, and beliefs of the “River,” swim to shore, and get shed of its murky waters.”
