Why Jan (Justice) Boshoff?

A few years ago Boshoff was brought to my attention. As time has gone on interest in him has grown. It is alarming why so many are being caught up with this guy. Boshoff teaches some truth along side error and this page is to show how ignorant Boshoff is concerning the scriptures. The Bible teaches in 2 Timothy 3:16 "
All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:"

We are instructed God Speaks to us through the Bible, and through it God instructs us how to live and have a relationship with Him, in Prayer (Phil 4:6) and Study (II Timothy 2:15).

The following will explain what Montanism is and why Jan (Justice) Boshoff fits this discription.

What is Montanism: [1] A charismatic heresy that, like the Mormons, teaches acontinuing revelation which carries equal weight with scripture. Also practises a form of blood atonement which assigned sin-atoning power to martyrdom, and encouraged a spiritual elitism, claiming to be a new breed of super-Christians (the only true church).

1. The belief that the prophecies of the Montanists superceded and fulfilled the doctrines proclaimed by the Apostles.

2. The encouragement of ecstatic prophesying, contrasting with the more sober and disciplined approach to theology dominant in Orthodox Christianity at the time and since. [2]

Boshoff teaches that he has continuing revelation which carries equal weight with scripture.

In the video The imperfection of scripture Boshoff encourages a form of spiritual elitism.

A Brief History

Jan (Justice) Boshoff, a South African from Gauteng, has emerged from youtube, since he joined on the 11th April 2008, he has gained a following of 3,000 or more friends this includes facebook. Boshoff asserts himself as an authority because he receives continued revelations from the "Holy Spirit", this same spirit gave Jan Boshoff failed prophecies such as the one he recieved on March 15 2009. It came to Boshoff in a dream saying Floods, South Africa as a warning for South Africa to repent. This prophecy has not come true. Boshoff has made similar mistakes in the past. In another video Jesus is coming! Be ready! Now! Jan Boshoff claimed to have received three messages from God, one of them was on the 27th March 2008 with a message from the "Spirit" saying the words "Hell to Heaven, Baxter." He did a search in google and believed the spirit is speaking through the charismatic Mary K. Baxter who claimed to have personally visited hell through her visions. Boshoff went to another realm, out side of his mind, "supernaturally". He claims that normally he is skeptical of these claims, in this case he took it seriously and he believes that the messages that Mary K. Baxter says are warnings from God, he mentioned that his wife also received the same confirmation, this happening within the space of a month.

Boshoff gives Mary K Baxter (an ordained Church of God minister) his highest commendation. The Church of God originally came out of the Azuza Street Revival in 1906, this should be enough to alert you that what Baxter teaches is less about the Bible and more about experientialism. What Baxter says about hell is not what the Bible discribes specifically. According to Baxter, Satan is incharge in hell, where the Bible teaches in Matt 25:41, Jude 1:6-7 that God has prepared a place for Satan and his angels in hell, and in Revelation 20:10, this is where Satan is going to suffer "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. "

There are many other videos that feature Boshoff's direct revelations that, when tested, are clearly not from God. The Bible warns us, 1 Corinthians 4:6 -"Do Not Exceed That Which Is Written" and in Galatians 1:8, "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed." and also in Galatians 1:9.

The Church of God denomination that Mary K.Baxter is an ordained minister of began as a schism from within the 1906 Azusa Street revival. The same spirit which inspired the schism resulting in the Church of God is the same spirit which speaks through Mary K. Baxter and, by extension, is also the same spirit that speaks through Jan (Justice) Boshoff. This is enough to put into question Boshoff's revelations, especially his campaign agaisnt those that believe the Bible to be the Inspired Word of God.

What are Some of Boshoffs teachings ?

Some of Boshoff's teachings (Videos):

1, The Bible is not the Word of God.

2, The Biggest Lie, the Bible is the word of God.

3, Do not study the Bible, Satan wants you to.

4, We are not to be Biblical.

5, We are not to be based on the Bible.

6, Our Faith is not to be based on the Bible.

7, The Bible deceaves Christians.

8, The Bible has Replaced Jesus.

9, Studying the Bible is Extreamly Dangerous, you must not let the bible goto your head, let it goto your heart.
(My comment: the Bible teaches Deuteronomy 11:18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes)
.

10, Preaching Bible is not preaching Jesus Christ, Romans 10:17 refutes this (Authority does not come from the Bible).

11, The Bible does not prove the exsistance of God. (My comment) The Bible does not set out to prove the existence of God but does prove that there is fullfilled prophecy which shows that there is divine inspiration behind the Bible.

12, We are not to believe the in the Bible we are to repent from that and follow Jesus. Again Romans 10:17 refutes this.

13, Stop QUOTING the Bible. (Boshoff quotes the Bible).
