Warrior Anointing

One of countless unbiblical concepts taught and promoted by John and Carol Arnott, pastors of the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship (TACF) — the birth place of the controversial revival movement known as the Toronto Blessing.

[Note that 2010 the church was renamed, ‘Catch The Fire.’]

The ‘Warrior Anointing’ was introduced after Carol Arnott prophesied about a “Golden Sword“. The anointing is said to

… bring “deliverance from your enemies.” The visible effects of receiving this “anointing” include roaring, shouting and grasping the hands above the head, then swinging them up and down as if one was actually holding a sword and attacking an enemy.

This “anointing” is often manifested in renewal/revival meetings.

Also taught by many supporters and promoters of the Toronto Blessing.

NOTE: Interestingly, long before the “Golden Sword” prophecy, many in the renewal and revival movements embraced the movie “Braveheart,” in which they claimed to see spiritual significance.
