Charismatic fire

African bishopsMany Christians are excited about the move of God happening around the world as more missionaries are spreading the Word of Jesus through the Gospel message. Lives are being changed and spiritually dead souls are being brought to life by the true regenerating power of the Holy Spirit. But the enemy hates this, and is promoting a false Christianity. Signs, wonders, and a prosperity “gospel” like none other we’ve seen even in the West has gripped many nations, especially in Africa.  We’re going to talk about that movement today and why African nations are so susceptible.

In our first segment today, we’ve invited a missionary who has dedicated his life to sharing the true Word of God with the lost in Africa to join us in studio. Joseph Lubega is here to share his testimony and his mission.  You can find Joseph at his website, his blog, or his email.

    Well said Mr. Davis. Well said.

    Extra-Bibilcal revelation is always an "extra" and promotes spiritual elitism which is so prominant in the western church today. It becomes very difficult at times to resist the pull of those who choose to lord over us with their vsions, dreams, signs, wonders, trips to the third heaven, out of body experiences, hearing god's audible voice, so called "words of wisdom from their own hearts in telling you how to live your life," and continual pressure promotions of all of the well known false prophets, teachers, and preachers (both men and women), and all of the magazines, articles, and books penned by their own hands…..let alone the cd's we are required to "purchase" to become more spiritual.

    Why do most within modern churchianity promote the works of men and women above the infallable Word of God?

    And what happens when a born again believer leaves this system and chooses to follow Christ alone?

    And Jesus said, "You will be hated….."

  2. Thank you so much for your program!! It encourages me that there are like minded people out there. I was saved in the Charismatic movement and know some of it is of Jesus and some is of flesh and lots of the devil. I do speak in tongues and have been healed several times. However my background is Mormon and New Age. There is a deceiver and only God's Word can get us through these dangerous times. Keep up the good work and I will be donating during your fundraising time.

    Today signs and wonders are portrayed to promote man, at least here in America. There is very little cost of following Christ talked about in these gatherings. You will be hated of all mankind for my sake. You must be willing to put Christ Jesus, God in the flesh, ahead of all else even your very life. For as many as received Him them he gave power to become the sons of God. To receive the light is to reject all darkness and to receive the truth is to reject lies and to receive eternity is to reject all that will perish, all that is vanity.

    But even in so called biblical circles following after the course of this world, pursuing the things the world pursues, and loving what the world loves is not shunned, no rather it is embraced. Is that really any different than false fire?

    If we do not return to the pattern for fellowship given in the bible and lay aside this idolatry of man what hope have we? Would God not be just for giving us into our idolatry? Does God not warn us in His word several times? Will our ignorance save us? If the entrance of His word gives light and makes wise the simple what excuse can we have?

    The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. Psalm 19:7-11

    God gifts the whole of the body for the edification of all of the body, so that in those areas where we ourselves are weak we may be strengthened and thereby learn to live for the sake of one another and the exercising of all unto maturity. Growing up in the body unto unity in the faith.

    This is the old ways we are to return to. I pray we will not reject them for those who do an evil end awaits

    Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken. Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them. Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it. Jeremiah 6:16-19

    Lord God, Heavenly Father I pray that by your great mercy and for your namesake that you may see fit to grant to us repentance that we may turn and be recovered from pursuing vanity. Please Lord God help us.
