Walk in the Spirit and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Galatians 5:16
We are living in strange times. People are hungry for supernatural manifestations. We at Gospel Truth Outreach have been encouraging believers to resist strange spirits. People want to go to meetings, be touched on the forehead by some super-anointed preacher, fall on the floor, and walk away hoping all their issues are solved. This is not true discipleship, but someone looking for a quick fix. If the preacher really is gifted to perform signs and wonders let him do it without the "horse and pony show". Furthermore, if you have been gauging weather God has moved in a meeting by how many were knocked to the ground, or how many had vague and superficial prophecies spoken over their lives, then you have been deceived! We at Gospel Truth Outreach believe that the Holy Spirit sobers people up. He doesn't make them drunk! He picks them up. He doesn't knock them down! Oh, you say, but a certain revival in the past has witnessed that and more. Don't look to past experiences of the saints. Look to your Bible! Ellen G. White claimed many mystical experiences and claimed to speak many prophecies too. What was the result? The birth of a classic cult - Seventh Day Adventism. Study the history of Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon Cult, and you will read about many charismatic manifestations. The best advice we can listen to in these crazy days are the words of Jesus. "You will know them by their fruits."
