First, to provide humans an concept of the sheer measurement and achieve of the NAR flow. And moment, to systematize its key teachings and practices and review them at the foundation of Scripture and cautious reasoning … . In our judgment, the NAR standpoint crosses those obstacles [that is, sure large parameters, printed in Scripture and practiced within the historic orthodox church], and it does so partly as a result of mistaken theology rooted in a unsuitable knowing of Scripture. we want to warn readers a few attainable confusion: a few critics have associated the NAR circulation with mainstream Pentecostalism and charismatics. we don't do that. in truth, it really is our competition that the NAR move deviates from classical Pentecostal and charismatic teachings. This circulation has emerged out of self sustaining charismatic church buildings and, hence, has received a foothold in lots of of these church buildings in various degrees."

Jones said God showed him that “this will be the end generation that is foreknown to inherit all things. Their children will attain a level of the Spirit that they themselves will not attain.
