"Kundalini Warning" will be the topic! --------------------------- QUOTES and COUNTERFEITS! - Please Comment -Andrew Strom. The last few days we have had a lot of "commenting" going on - on Youtube, Facebook, etc - over this whole issue of "counterfeit manifestations" - and how do we tell the true from the false? Below are some quotes that we have published on this issue to hopefully help people grapple with this. Some of these are quite provocative. We will be discussing this on our website today and would love your comments. Here are the quotes- (1) Frank Bartleman (of the Azusa Street Revival) wrote: "Many are willing to seek 'power' from every battery they can lay their hands on, in order to perform miracles... A true 'Pentecost' will produce a mighty conviction for sin, a turning to God. False manifestations produce only excitement and wonder... Any work that exalts the Holy Ghost or the 'gifts' above Jesus will finally land up in fanaticism." (2) 'Timbro' posted this question- "Just wondered if Andrew would like to comment on this extract from John Wesleys experience as to whether he thinks this is not the Holy Spirit. Quote John Wesley was a man mighty in faith and prayer. Time and again, people possessed with devils were brought to him and in answer to prayer, the demons were cast out. Not only were evil spirits cast out, but the sick were healed as well. As Wesley preached, the power of God often came upon his listeners, and hundreds would fall under the power of the Spirit. Then, in answer, to prayer their souls and bodies were healed. A physician became offended at the cries of many who fell under the power of God. He attended Wesleys meeting and a woman he knew fell under the power. Great drops of sweat ran down her face, and all her bones shook. But when both her soul and body were healed in a moment he acknowledged the finger of God. ANDREW REPLIES- "In John Wesley's quote above, what is clear is that he is CASTING OUT demons, rather than spreading their bizarre manifestations and calling it a "good" thing!! We often see "falling down under the power" in past Revivals. But usually it was caused by tremendous CONVICTION and people actually TREMBLED at the preaching of the word! (Like Felix in Acts when Paul preached). Most people do not understand what the true Revivalists were about. It was piercing repentance and holiness preaching - CONVICTION OF SIN. And a true "clean heart" experience at the end of it. The last thing they wanted was a whole movement of weird manifestations!! God forbid! I wish people would study Revival - and get to the heart of what it really used to mean." (3) Final quote from Andrew Strom- 'People say "Let's not discern by outward appearance." So they are saying that which looks and sounds and feels "Demonic" is OK. I say that the first element of real discernment is "common sense". Lose this and you lose everything. If it looks demonic and sounds demonic and feels demonic - it is probably demonic.' -YOUR COMMENTS? - Please post them at the website below- http://www.johnthebaptisttv.com/ God bless you all!
