Today I became aware of a Bethel Redding affiliate in Omaha, Nebraska. It’s a place called The Hub. A “hub” it is. The Hub is a “hub” of unbiblical activity.
A video appeared on my Facebook home page today. There’s certainly nothing unusual about that. In fact, my home page is littered with videos–good, bad, and ugly. One video caught my eye. The video you I saw on Facebook today is a whole-lotta-bad, with a dash of ugly, and probably a sprinkle of demonic.
The video you are about to see is two years old and posted on Diane Cory’s YouTube channel. More about her in a minute. We can assume Diane is working the camera. The description given on the video page indicates that a team from Bethel Redding is working with young students at a place called “The Hub.”
“Welcome to the Omaha HUB’s website. Julaine Christensen is the founder and director of the Omaha HUB. She has traveled as an Evangelist/Revivalist for more than 20 years and has ministered in more than 18 nations. During her ministry both here and abroad, she has seen countless numbers of people saved, delivered, and healed through the power of God’s word and worship. She strongly believes that worship is one of the keys to ushering in the presence of God.
“During her 20 years of travel, the Lord outlined a picture of a House of Prayer and Worship and Equipping Center as a wheel that centered around Christ, as the prayer and worship honored the audience of ONE.”
Further down the same page, how The Hub came into existence is described:
Julaine Christensen continued her traveling ministry until 2008 and then took a break for the summer months. During that time, she attended healing services in Lakeland, FL, came home and began healing services in her home. People began to call and ask if they could come to her home for prayer. The first Monday afternoon, twenty-five people showed up. They worshiped and then God came with such power in healings and signs and wonders that they decided to continue the meetings the following Monday evening and more than 75 people came with hungry hearts. After several weeks of meeting in her home, a local church offered to pay for a space in a hotel in order for them to continue to release the presence of God. Later, they were given a 9,000 sq. foot building for meetings. It was amazing to see so many people hungry for a move of God’s presence. Nearly 150-200 people attended each Monday night as God’s presence filled the building. In December, 2008, they moved to Burt Circle into a smaller space on the west side of the building. This was the first time they signed a lease and consequently, the Omaha HUB officially embarked on its journey.”
The false Lakeland Revival (mentioned above) was led by a drunkard, fornicator, and adulterer named Todd Bentley (These articles contain information about Todd Bentley).
The Hub also has its own version of the International House of Prayer. Theirs is called “Omaha House of Prayer.”
The Hub added a “church” in 2015. The House of Presence Church, pastored by Richard Gervais, is under the authority of Julaine Cristensen. Gervais also supervises the “Healing Rooms” (started March 2016), at The Hub.
Back to Diane Cory and the Video
In the video, apparently at some kind of youth meeting, the adult leaders from Bethel Redding are trying to convince children that “God wants to release something on [them].”
It’s painfully obvious by watching the video that it’s not the Holy Spirit at work, but rather deceived adults psychologically manipulating children. The cultish tentacles of Bethel Redding stretch around the world, and it would appear that this cult has its insidious grip on at least one group of children at The Hub, in Omaha.
Bethel Redding Wants Your Children
As I’ve written elsewhere, make no mistake; Bethel Redding wants your children. Bethel Redding and all its affiliates prey upon the most impressionable and most easily deceived among us–our children.
If you have friends in the Omaha area, please let them know that The Hub and The House of Presence Church are not safe places.
