Item description for The Other Side of the River: When Mystical Experiences and Strange Doctrines Overtake His Church One Man Risks All to Find the Truth a True Story by Kevin Reeves...
Overview A compelling and deeply personal account of a young man's spiritual plunge into a movement called "the River," which is said to be spreading the kingdom of God through signs and wonders. 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 keep many adherents in bondage, afraid to speak out or even question those things they are taught and are witness to. For Kevin Reeves, the 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 the Gospel of Jesus Christ would be worth the price. Some of the topics this book addresses: * Word Faith movement * Holy Laughter * "Slain" in the Spirit practice * Emphasis on humanity of Jesus over Deity * Gifts & Calling for the unbeliever? * Experience versus Scripture * Repetitive chanting & singing * Paradigm shift * Understanding true worship

Exposing The Charismatic/Experiential Movement Sep 30, 2009
A great book by someone who was deceived for many years by the "River Movement", which also is related to the "Word of Faith" and "Dominion/Kingdom Now". These movements are endorsed by people like Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland and many other TBN heretics. Other well-known names to watch out for are Jesse Duplantis, John Wimber, and Rodney Howard-Browne. I would honestly like to see the amounts of money being made by any one of these people. It's a shame that Christians do not compare what these people say with the Holy Bible (KJV).
So-called holy laughter, shaking, heat sensations, etc are not holy at all. Thank you Mr. Reeves for having the courage to come forth with your story and enduring the chastisement from others and also the embarrassment that comes with acknowledging your errors after searching the Scriptures.
Truth Apr 19, 2009
Thank You, Kevin Reeves for writing this book!!!A MUST READ BOOK if you are searching for truth. Find truth and stop being deceived. I wish everyone in "churches" that are being deceived could read this. I have fell for the same things this books talks about. Something in me knew better but believed and trusted those that I thought were more superior and knew more than I. I put my believes and trust in "man's religion", "churches", their ideas and thoughts, instead of God's word and proving the word for myself. ddj
The best book I have read on the Latter rain/third wave movement Mar 13, 2009
This book was so full of the heresies practiced by the "new move of God" in the church today.I have to admit feeling the same way as the author did while he was involved in the "River" movement. I knew something was not right! He confirms this with biblical backing! I could not put it down, really! I really recommend this book.
An eyeopening 'firsthand' testimony of church folly! Oct 8, 2008
If you have serious questions about what is God, or False folly that is breaking out in curches everywhere since the Toronto manifestations began, this is a book to read. It is an eyeopening account from a man who was in leadership for many years, and who has now bravely discarded 'the lie'. I suspect most christians will identify fully with the encounters he 'tolerated' despite his growing discomfort, due to the 'false' dilemma of loyalty to leaders versus loyalty to the WORD OF GOD.
Freedom from wrong teaching Jun 13, 2008
I found Mr. Reeves' book after I bought "Why I Left the Prophetic Movement" which was very disappointing! Mr. Reeves shares his struggles with questionable teaching in the charismatic community in a way I found refreshing! He points out how a lot of what is being taught isn't found in the Bible but is based on experience and opinion. Much of what is being taught, especially in groups that adhere to the so called "Toronto Blessing" is actually heresy and Mr. Reeves' backs up what he's teaching with sound Scriptural teaching that sticks to what the Bible actually teaches and not what someone else may want it to say when it actually doesn't.
I also found Kevin Reeves to be a man of godly humility and someone I can trust. He gives us freedom to doubt & question & helps us focus back on the truth of God's Word.
