2019 – MONDAY 10 JUNE
As we proceed further into the 21 Century – it is very clear that the Pentecostal move of God over the last century – is now in need of reviving.
Consider why Pentecostals are no longer in the game.
With some wonderful exceptions.
NO LONGER SPEAK IN TONGUES
Speaking in tongues by the Holy Spirit is no longer practised by Pentecostals. Nor is the power of tongues taught.
NO LONGER BELIEVE IN MIRACLES
Miracles are still prayed for – but no longer waited for.
If the marriage is not working – find a new one. That is not Pentecostal.
NO LONGER PREACH THE SECOND COMING
When God moves – the second coming of Christ always comes back into focus. When you hear – Jesus is coming soon – you know you are in revival.
NO LONGER ARE LED BY APOSTLES
I have watched movements move from Apostolic leaders to pastoral or administrative leaders.
This changes their message from conquest to kindness – and their mission from crusades to community care programs.
NO LONGER HAVE VISION
Vision is the domain of Apostles and Prophets – who spread it through the church. When a movement loses the power of Pentecost – it loses its ability to see the mighty hand of God for the future.
Vision then becomes projects and programs – instead of the power of God at work to do miracles.
SIGNS AND WONDERS ARE THE HALLMARKS OF PENTECOST
