Wide is the Gate – Caryl Matrisclana

I’ve been looking for a solid video series that provides a comprehensive, but relatively easy to follow, visual presentation of what is involved with the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement for a long time. The reason for this is that not everyone finds it easy to read the many posts and articles that have been authored on the NAR movement, and some people find it easier to learn via a visual presentation. I believe that I have finally found the video series that I have been looking for. But there is also a bonus, because not only have I found a video series that covers the NAR movement very well, but I also have found additional complementary video series, that provide a visual presentation of how we got here.

This is a picture of Caryl Matrisciana, who passed away in 2016. You can read about Caryl here. There are many testimonies given by reputable Christian organizations, attesting to her Christian witness, maturity, knowledge and character, which you can view here, here and here.

The Bible warns of great heresy and apostasy in the church of the last days. It foretells of false teachers, prophets, doctrines of lying spirits and their signs and wonders. For 2000 years, since the crucifixion of Jesus Christ the Bible has been attacked. Alongside the Apostolic Church, based on the teachings of Jesus Christ and his apostles, counterfeit Christian heretics, apostate denominations and false movements have proliferated. Ecclesiastes says, “There’s no new thing under the sun”. (I:9)

Caryl Productions produced a three volume video series entitled “Wide is the Gate”.
The “play list” for this three volume series can be viewed here.

When you click on the above link, a description of each volume can be viewed on the left of your computer screen and the videos are individually identified as to the particular volume and the numeric number of that particular series, is available on the right of your computer screen.

VOLUME ONE has five videos and addresses the intrusion of the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s New Age Movement, steeped in its pagan eastern mysticism, culminating to its coming out in the 21st century as “the new spirituality.” 
VOLUME TWO has five videos and addresses “The Emerging New Christianity”.
VOLUME THREE has seven videos which specifically addresses the New Apostolic Reformation.

Please take the time to read the full description for each volume on the left of your screen.

Volume 3, the final installment in the Caryl Productions “Wide is the Gate” series, features the hyper-Charismatic and Pentecostal movements represented by a variety of names and leaders. This supposed “new move of the Holy Spirit” coined as the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is also known as Third Wave, Manifest Sons of God, Latter Rain, Kingdom Now, Word Faith, Fresh Fire, and has many other names. Poignant testimonies of former members recount the subtle ways they were enticed into believing they were part of something “new” God was doing, only to come to the sober realization that they had been ensnared by unholy spirits. Through careful biblical analysis, well-known experts help unravel the tragedy of growing deception in the church masquerading as revival, renewal, and vibrant new Christianity.

Volume Three is the seven video series that I am specifically drawing your attention to, but I do also highly recommend that you view Volume One and Two if you have the time.

Hope this helps.

Worthy is the Lamb! Blessings!



  1. Bruce, I quickly scanned the titles and “Wide Is The Gate 2 (3 of 5) The Emerging New Christianity: Roman Catholicism” caught my eye. I will definitely be watching that one. I hastily sampled it and I see Mike Gendron and Roger Oakland are featured. I have reviewed excellent books by both in the past. Thank you for directing us to these video resources!


    • Hi Tom, yes, I took a look at those myself. They all appear to be very well balanced and there is good emphasis on key points throughout, especially with regard to New Age thinking, Roman Catholicism, keeping our base in God’s Word etc. It’s still light but enough to set the standard and the tone throughout. Looking forward to your thoughts when you go through it. Blessings!

  2. I just finished watching all 7 videos of Volume 3. This is an amazing series. Having been deceived by Word of Faith/ NAR teaching for 15 years, I can tell you I was taught many of these lies. This series is very important to get out to those seeking truth. Lying spirits are truly seductive and those of us who are discerning must speak out. Thank you for making this series available. It is very informative. These are things most Christians are unaware of. I am posting this link on tomorrow’s post. Blessings, Bruce!
