True revival

18 10 2006

True revival results in holiness, not signs and wonders. As i was reading through an article written by Charles Spurgeon, he said

Charles Spurgeon warned of the dangers of chasing after signs and wonders. “I am glad of any signs of life, even if they should be feverish and transient, and I am slow to judge any well intended movement, but I am very fearful that many so called revivals in the long run wrought more harm than good. A species of religious gambling has fascinated many men, and given them a distaste for the sober business of true godliness. But if I would nail down counterfeits upon the counter, I do not therefore undervalue true gold. Far from it. It is to be desired beyond measure that the Lord would send a real and lasting revival of spiritual life.”

And I agree. When i measure Revival with the simplistic agenda of seeking God’s heart, i often wonder, were the signs and wonders the end of the pursuit of well-meaning christians? Woe to me if i ever lose sight of that value of true gold, desiring only after God and pursuing Him as i would a lover, not signs and wonders be my motivation.

Revival is a hackneyed word. Many have used this word
to gather people around themselves, instead of around
Jesus. And people think any revival is not coming. They
refer to 2 Thess. 2:3 and tell about the great Apostasy.
But this Apostasy has taken place a very long time ago.
The entire Christendom was lead astray by false shepherds
and preachers, which preached false doctrines. Since then,
God’s people have been slaves under many denominations
and churches. And the great Apostasy is continuing still
today. The great Apostasy is NOW!

Rev.18:4-5 is an extremely powerful revival message
from the Lord. He commands his people to leave the great
Babylon. This must take place before Jesus comes. After
Jesus has come, then God’s people are home at the Lord,
and there is no Babylon.

Very few Christians have obeyed this revival message of
the Lord, and left the great Babylon. Before Jesus comes
all Christians must obey this command of the Lord.
Otherwise God will judge them as partakers in the sins
of the great harlot, and they must share her plagues.

As in the days of Lot, it is now. Lot was not interested to
leave Sodom. God sent two angels to rescue him, and
they must persuade him to leave Sodom. When he yet
lingered, they took him at his hand and led him out of
the city. One of the angels said to him: “Flee for your
life sake and do not see you backwards …”
Genesis 19:15-17.

Just like as Lot, God’s people today is not interested to
leave the great Babylon. They are spiritual to sleep and
do not want to be disturbed. In the churches they never
have preached the truth of the Assembly of God. They
do not know in what they are members.

What shall happen before Jesus comes?
