teaching popularized by the Latter Rain
movement. Based on a serious misinterpretation of Revelation 12
, pieced together with other passages, such as Joel 2
, this teaching claims that the so-called ''manchild'' (male child) will be born out of the end time church of overcomers.

Like most Latter Rain teachings, these concepts are promoted by today's controversial ''prophets
'' and ''apostles.
