Steven Furtick Takes the Code Orange Revival Underground

Steven Furtick and his Elevation Church kicked off 2012 with a bang. The Code Orange Revival was twelve nights of celebrity preachers, loud worship music and subsequent emotional highs. Speakers ran from across the spectrum of professing Christianity—from New Calvinist Matt Chandler and his gospel-centered message to Word Faith preacher T.D. Jakes with his typical performance and prosperity theatrics. Last year's event also featured Elephant Room Curator James MacDonald, Hillsong darling Christine Caine, seeming prosperity preachers Jentezen Franklin and Stovall Weems, Furtick's personal pastor, Craig Groeschel, Joel Osteen's worship leader, Israel Houghton, and seeker-driven favorites Perry Noble, Kevin Gerald and Ed Young, Jr. Scripture was twisted, hands were raised, and every night of the event was broadcast live online for the entire world to view.

It seems that Furtick has revitalized the Code Orange Revival for 2013. This time, however, there is a twist: this "revival" is by invitation only as evidenced by the Code Orange Underground website:

Nevertheless, Code Orange Underground does not seem to be a very well-kept secret. One glance at the Twitter hashtag #CodeOrangeUnderground offers many details about the event. For instance, Steven Furtick himself tells us that there will be eight meetings total and that the first of these occurred on 15 January:

Furtick also shares that the featured speakers for this first evening were his friends and Code Orange veterans Perry Noble and Jentezen Franklin:

Others in attendance clearly were moved by the theatrics of the event:

Based upon this picture tweeted out by Steven Furtick's wife, Holly, one cannot help but notice that, for an exclusive, invitation-only event, this was quite a massive gathering:

Perhaps some of the most curious tweets about the event were sent out by Steven Furtick himself:

Not having heard the teachings presented at this first gathering of the Code Orange Underground, it is uncertain exactly what is meant by these rather charismatic phrases. Perhaps once the details crawl out of the sewer more will be known.

  2. RSVP or in other words we can not have the likes of Chris Rosebrough attending, discerning, and critiquing the Code Orange in the light of scripture.

    This does not sound good at all.

  3. How interesting. Steven Furtick’s Code Orange conference was a previously public event that has been transitioned to an underground, invitation only, exclusive gathering.

    And now everyone is being subjected to strange, overly enthusiastic “insider jargon” tweets from those who are attending.

    Let’s see, on www.howcultswork.com we can pick up the following pointers:

    - They have super hyped meetings with books, tapes, videos, leaflets, products.
    - Everyone at the meetings is so enthusiastic that you will start to think there is something wrong with you.
    - They create an environment where you will feel uncomfortable and the only way to become comfortable is to join them.
    - Thy practice exclusivism.
    - They hide what they teach.
    - They seek to maneuver your life so as to maximize your contact with them and minimize your contact with people outside the group, especially those who oppose… involvement.

    But, most importantly, I think 2 Peter 2:1-3 applies here. Carol

    “But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will SECRETLY bring in destructive heresies…”

  4. Oh boy. It's a Code Orange Speakeasy where only club members can imbibe the contraband hootch. Seems like this time, it's the actual Word of God and sound teaching that are prohibited.

    1. Except holenuttha orange nut Furtick is slamming his mind twisting scam on these poor people for DOUGH and a lot of it... Get a clue, his new "administrative center" i.e. his new plushy hangout is going to cost twenty big oranges... YES twenty million dollars and yes he might throw in there a small "auditorium" to justify this as a church" to his remotely controlled orange nutters. Would that be a problem dear "winner"? Of course if you employ your God given faculties...

  6. Charismatic phrases like, "Slap the devil 7 times and paint him orange good" and "Wine making/angel teaching/double-barreled/Holy Ghost/ fire code= #CodeOrangeUnderground" It's all Greek to me....

    How sad for all those who went to the "party".... choosing the wide gate and not knowing it. Praying that their eyes will be opened to the truth of the Gospel.
