DEREK PRINCE - Important

Well-known Charismatic Bible teacher Derek Prince put out a very 
controversial and outspoken book about "Deception" in 1996 which 
few seem to have read. While fairly 'balanced', it was very specific 
in talking about the deceptions that were rising then (and still are).
I was quite surprised when I read it. (This is not "Uproar in the 
Church" but another one). The entire first chapter is now on my 
website (-with the kind permission of Derek Prince Ministries).

I guess some people are getting tired of the fact that we talk about
"deception" on this List - not just 'Revival'.  Some say, "Just 
concentrate on positive, upbuilding things."  And yes, on a practical 
level, our ministry is very much heading in the direction of the 'fields 
being ripe for Harvest' and "Revival on the streets". But we also see 
a crying need to WARN of the serious deceptions that are currently 
arising - and seem to grow worse every year. As Derek Prince 
himself said: "The greatest single danger in this end time is not 
sickness, nor poverty, nor persecution. It is DECEPTION. If anybody 
says, "It could never happen to me," it has already happened to 
that person, because that person is saying something could never 
happen that Jesus said would happen." [END QUOTE].

So in a way, I feel we need to be a bit like Nehemiah's men today - 
building with one hand whilst holding a sword in the other. We need
to be 'harvest'-oriented while still alert to deception also. -Because 
we cannot simply ignore the dangers that are ensnaring our brothers 
and sisters around the world. And of course, much of this deception 
is issuing from here in the USA and Canada.

PLEASE take the time to read Derek Prince's article on this subject, 
my friends. I think you will be very surprised. It can be found near 
the top of the following web-site:

God bless you all.

Kindest regards in Christ,
