Flaws: Lies < Revival

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 6 v 14 - 18; 2 Thessalonians 1 and 2. (The 2 books of Thessalonians are important) and Matthew 3 v 10!


We cannot diagnose the deep-rooted problems the Church is going through without looking at solutions as well. It was written in scripture that this apostasy would come and there would be a falling away - many thousands of people leaving the church through the demonic power of False Doctrines.

We know that sin was found in Heaven which resulted in Satan falling from Heaven like lightning and the fall of Man in the garden of Eden. Apostasy is a serious spiritual decline from the true gospel.

It generally starts with pride and arrogance. Satan fell through pride and so did Adam. Pride goes before a fall. The Roman Catholic Church is built on pride and pride leads to deception. In the 4th century AD the Romans decided to mix the Babylonian religion in with christianity which resulted in a state controlled church.

This has never been corrected nor repented of. More than one billion people are trapped from womb to grave in a cult that elevates Mary above Jesus; is described in the Bible as the great Whore in Revelations 16 and 17; is responsible for the murder of 68 million true Christians during the Spanish Inquisition and is busy engineering the One World Church under a Pope (no such office in the Bible) who is prime candidate for the role of Antichrist.

In our previous blog it was shown that Rhema is a cult - a house built on sand - a false foundation that has been covered over by many sincere people who love Jesus but are seduced by a spirit that is not the Holy Spirit. Many millions will stand before a Holy God and have the words of Jesus in Matthew 7 v 21-23 applied to them - I never knew you, depart from Me ye who work iniquity.

The billions who belong to mainline Protestant churches that do not preach salvation through being born again by water and the Spirit as Jesus commanded will hear the words of Jesus from Matthew 15 v 8 - 9 "this people draweth nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." So keep your honoured age old, man made traditions at your peril.

The billions that follow false gods in false religions will likewise be forever lost. Are we being obedient to Jesus by going out to bring the gospel to those who sit in darkness? Our mission field is all around us, we don't have to go far or learn a strange language to find those who are lost. 

We are in the last days and are waiting for the Rapture to take us from this Earth. Who will be taken into the clouds to meet Jesus in the air? Those who truly follow Him with all their hearts and minds.

The rest will fall under the power of the Antichrist for a time of tribulation never seen before on this planet.

The last days will see many Superstorm Sandy events; earthquakes and tsunamis; famine; plague type diseases with no cure; a tyrant as leader of the world; much heartbreak.

Jesus wants to spare people this horrific experience. He has made a way of escape like Noah's Ark. It is called the invisible true church which is His Body. This is the Holy Grail men must seek. The strait and narrow path that leads to life. The Bible says in Matthew 7 - few there be that find it.

Before the Rapture there will come a world wide outpouring of the Holy Spirit in a global Revival. It will be God's last move before the end comes for the Gentiles (non-Jews). After the Rapture Jesus will return to rescue Israel from the jaws of Armageddon.

The final revival is not the Toronto Blessing, which is an evil parody and a false revival. If you can find an old book by H. R. Baker called "Visions Beyond the Veil" and "Like a Mighty Wind" by Mel Tari - these men experienced true revival.

Jessie Penn Lewis wrote books about the revival in Wales just over a century ago. A true revival starts with a consciousness of sin in our lives that causes us to weep for days for what we have done to hurt our Saviour. It is followed by deep repentance and a desire to abide in prayer seeking God for days on end.

John G Lake came from America to preach in South Africa and was in the midst of a revival and saw many miracles. So the only hope this world has is to respond to the power of the Holy Spirit in the last outpouring. It will be a glorious time that will bring unity and direction to the true church. A church with no divisions or denominations - the followers of the Lamb.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, have mercy on me. Its so hard to disappoint those who are so sure they are on the right path. It happened to me and took a 40 day fast to set me free. I love and thank You for bringing me out of "Egypt" with a strong and mighty hand. Please do it for all these others for whom Jesus died. We choose to come out from among them and be separated to You, Father God, to be Your sons and daughters (2 Corinthians 6 v 14-18). In Jesus' name. Amen.
