Re: Unrecoverable Revival
Wherever Christians meet these days one word is sure to be heard constantly repeated; that word is revival.
In sermon, song and prayer we are forever reminding the Lord and each other that what we must have to solve all our spiritual problems is a "mighty, old-time revival...."
So strongly is the breeze blowing for revival that scarcely anyone appears to have the discernment or the courage to turn around and lean into the wind, even though the truth may easily lie in that direction....
It is my considered opinion that under the present circumstances we do not want revival at all. A widespread revival of the kind of Christianity we know today in America might prove to be a moral tragedy from which we would not recover in a hundred years. --A.W.Tozer
Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, (1Tim4:1) ...having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! (2Tim3:5)
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (1Jn4:1)
Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way
that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it...Not
everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord" shall enter the kingdom of
heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not
prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many
wonders in Your name?" And then I will declare to them, "I never knew
you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!" (~Mt7:13-23)
