What is the charismatic movement?


There is a huge deception and movement that is a diversion from the evil spirits to lead God's church - especially those who are hungry - away from God and his word, and from His Son, Jesus Christ!

How did the charismatic movement? Here in the great Norwegian encyclopaedia:

The Charismatic movement
Pronunciation: charismatic bevegelseden charismatic movement. (To charisma), a Christian movement that originated in California, USA in 1960 when the Anglican priest Dennis Benett stood up and said he had been "Spirit baptism" and spoke in tongues. The movement quickly spread to a number of denominations, including the Lutheran and (in 1967) to the Roman Catholic Church. It is characterized by an experience of the Holy Spirit (åndsdåp) resulting in the practice of spiritual gifts as speaking in tongues, prophecy and healing through prayer, and close Christian fellowship with a strong emphasis on worship and evangelism. Originally, the movement characterized by a theology that lay close to the Pentecostal movement, therefore, it was often called "neo-Pentecostal" (Analytical neo-pentecostalism), but eventually the theology become more adapted to the various denominations. The charismatic movement has spread to most denominations in the world, and has been a particularly strong position in the Catholic Church. Most churches in Africa and Asia (especially China) is strongly influenced by the movement.

The charismatic movement has not a single organization, but is organized within the various denominations. It held, however, major international, inter-ecclesiastical conferences, and there is a charismatic world conference of the mission. The movement has a strong ecumenical character of unity between Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant Christians. Came to Norway the charismatic movement at the end of the 1960s. One of the initiators were A. Edvardsen. The movement also spread to the Norwegian Church and later resulted in the creation of Oase working for charismatic renewal within the Lutheran church in Norway.

To understand this you should also have some knowledge of the Pentecostal revival. This is from Wikipedia about the Pentecostal revival:
Pentecostal movement has its prototype in the early Christian church as one can read about it in the New Testament. When the Pentecostal revival broke out in the early 1900's, there were many Christians who felt that the Christian church had been born again. They believed that through the church history, Christianity had been a little off course in relation to what it originally was. Church history is full of a conflict between the divine and the human.

Pentecostal movement has roots back to the holiness movement, who made his mark in America in the 1800s. Towards the end of the 1800s affected the Pentecostal revival many people and many had what they called a baptism of fire. Many left with a longing for a touch of the Holy Spirit. The 1 January 1901 the Holy Ghost fell on Agnes Ozman, and some days later, the preacher and metodistpastoren Charles Parham. But it was in 1906 that the power of Pentecost and the baptism of the Holy Spirit really was a worldwide breakthrough of revival in Azusa Street, Los Angeles. It was the African-American pastor William J. Seymour revival meetings under the name of Apostolic Faith Mission. Thousands experienced Spirit baptism in this revival.

Pentecostal revival at the beginning of the 1900s affected many established churches. The major focus was on Jesus Christ, the Bible's central teachings and the Holy Spirit. The personal life as a Christian was also important and had its expression in an increased witness and prayer need, and use of spiritual gifts. The term Pentecostal church was first used at the beginning of the 1900s, various meetings were concerned about revival.

Revival faced criticism and was mocked with, among other things, cartoons in newspapers. This contributed to the revival spread and it spread like wildfire [3]. Before the end of 1906 it was established in 3 continents. A few years later, it spread throughout the American continent.

The English-born, but the Norwegian Methodist Thomas Ball Barratt brought Pentecostalism to Europe and Norway in 1906. He was really on fundraising trip for the erection of a building. He had long yearned for purification of heart and spirit baptism, and read randomly in the magazine The Apostolic Faith precisely about this. From New York he took contact with the Spirit baptized in Los Angeles, and this contact changed his life completely. Later he got to experience being filled with the spirit and get tongues. Barratt was in force in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and England and must be given to have been the one who established the Pentecostal movement there (end of quote).

What is the difference between the Pentecostal revival and the charismatic movement?

Pentecostal movement is a movement sent from God for many hungry hearts who wanted to experience the Acts again, but paid the costs. It is here that Pentecostalism and the charismatic movement is different. When the Word and Spirit work together will be wonderful, as Pastor TB Barratt liked to say. But when word gets overlooked, neglected and misinterpreted it will be charismatic, which is a forgery, counterfeiting and deception!

Now I know that God also has met someone through the charismatic movement, but most have been deceived, misled and are entered into a waiver to the Lord and His Word.

I know this may sound like a simplification, which it surely is. But today, the charismatic \ religious movement and the traditional Pentecostal movement in the process of moving in together, which shows that what started at the beginning of this century is about to go out in the sand. The charismatic movement and Pentecostalism neither can, should or must be unite when even religious foundation, biblical understanding and basically is like night and day. This can be said and written much about. But the Pentecostal movement has always been faithful to God's word, in contrast to the charismatic movement that has never really been faithful against the Word. Now we can say that Barratt and the first Pentecostals started on something that they do not fulførte, but basically for all the Pentecostal revival had experiences with God and to be faithful received the word which is never followed in the wake of the charismatic movement where signs, wonders and miracles have united them, not the Word and the preaching of the cross and what God says in His word.

The grandeur of the Pentecostal revival

After what happened with the early believers where the revival began on the day of Pentecost, but each came into apostasy. So I keep on the Pentecostal revival is the most beautiful, largest and most important movement since the apostle's days, greater than both the Catholic Church and the Lutheran church. Know that this is a very big word, but it is the truth. However, after the first Pentecostals dead who had experienced revival as it has been a scale, which has resulted in this sad fact that in the western world, this revival is not to recognize many places!

The weakness of the Pentecostal movement!

The main weakness of any movement is that one does not go on with God, that either settles down or fall behind on the road. The new and wonderful areas that took the start of the Pentecostal of spiritual truths and experiences were and are just a beginning of what God would and did. Barratt said on his deathbed that there are more countries to adopt. I think this was a form of recognition or self-awareness that he himself had once taken out the potential that he and the Pentecostal revival in Norway had in Christ. When Barratt said it, how much more is it today? I think that's why we see the merger as we see today.

Will also include that it is free spiritual directions that do not belong to the classical Pentecostal revival but who still bear the same fruits and is up to the Pentecostal revival. Such as free friends, Baptists, Maranta and others.

The Charismatic movement!

Now it's not easy to define the charismatic movement as they constantly change both what they themselves believe and teach many of the preachers who work within its this movement. At the same time we know that bibeltroskapen are in retreat all over the Christian world so that this forføriske spiritual direction of winning more and more entry. So be careful and do not let yourself be misled in this time of it as similar to the real and true!

Who represents this apostasy and the seduction here in Norway today? There are many to mention, such as Oslo Christian Center and Faith Movement. Vision Norway, Sharon Valley, Christ Church, Toronto, and Cath the Fire. Oase and many foreign churches and congregations that have established themselves here in Norway + many more! But there is something very strange is about to happen, it is that more and more churches, denominations and movements that blend together without having gone into the matter and see what you stand for. But this trend is not so strange with Egil Dahl Black, Emanuel Minos and other apostates Pentecostals at the "top" of the Pentecostal movement. Was to met him as a leader in the Pentecostal Movement in Norway today in the church which he serves as Pastor. Rev. Sigmund Kristoffersen in Bethel Hommersåk at Sandnes was the bookshelves so satisfied with Åge Åleskjær literature that there is only evidence and witnesses that one is not aware of or want to be aware of this false prophet teaches and preaches!

Includes an article written by Evangelist and Bible teacher Torkild Terk that I give my inference to:

The charismatic "revival"
The classic Pentecostal revival and since the charismatic "revival", both of which occurred in the 20 century, has had an enormous impact on Christianity worldwide. All denominations and congregations are touched in some way. The classic Pentecostal revival began in 1901 and the charismatic "revival" ca. 60 years later. These two, who initially was so completely different, have now merged and is now the world's largest Christian movement.
The revival that began in 1901 in Topeka, Kansas, USA with the Holy Spirit fell on longing and praying students in a Bible school and where Agnes Osman and then Charles Parham was the first who spoke in tongues, spread, and soon came to Los Angeles and a small church in Asuza Street with the colored pastor Seymour. From there it spread to the whole world and came early (1906) to Norway and then in Scandinavia and Europe by metodistpastor TB Barratt. The revival was marked by the Holy Spirit of holiness in both the inner and outer, surrender to God's leadership, radical and uncompromising preaching of the Word ground and reach the pole from some form of alliances that broke with the Word of God.

The charismatic "revival" began in the 1960's. It has essentially nothing to do with the Holy Spirit to do, but are a gigantic deception and fulfillment of biblical prophecies about the end times and Jesus' own predictions about the first and most important sign of the end times: "See that no one deceives you! - For false messiass'er and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so that even the elect would be deceived, if it were possible. See, I told you before. "(Mt.24.4, 24) But let me also emphasize that the first Pentecostal revival still had and have vitality and longing for believers all over the world are experiencing a biblical and true fullness of the Holy Spirit. The fake has always been in parallel with the real.

Seduction called the charismatic "revival" had before 1960 - the number his predecessors. One of them was the longtime head of the PWC, (Pentecostal World Conference), David du Plessis (1905-1987). So central was his position that he was nicknamed "Mr.Pentecost" (Mr. Pentecost). His enormous influence in the Pentecostal movement made him attractive to the Catholic Church seductive agents and he was close friend of not less than three popes named by Cardinal Bea invited to the Third Session of the Second Vatican Council in 1963-65 and then to six of the meetings of the WCC (WCC). I remember even how Pentecostals boasted of this and believed that the Pentecostal revival was to gain influence in the Vatican. It was the opposite. Mt.Pentecost praising the Virgin Mary's revelation at Medjugorje in Yugoslavia, and visited the site.

The charismatic revival officials claim that this "revival" was born in that the Episcopal priest Dennis Bennett from California on April 3, 1960 claimed to have been baptized in the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues. Later in the 60th century, he was the keynote speaker during the summer in the Sharon Valley. Sharon Dal and evangelist Arild Edvardsen was the charismatic revival gateway to Norway and Scandinavia.

From 1940 onwards, healing preachers like William Branham, Oral Roberts, Gordon Lindsey, AAAllan, Tommy Hicks, TLOsborne and seemed partially and with great success on the side of the organized Pentecostalism. A new movement, "Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International" headed by Demos Shakarian opened up for these helbredelsespredikantene. Soon this movement toned down the importance of having a biblical doctrine and argued in his magazine "Voice" that God never intended that the Full Gospel Business But or Pentecostals should have a monopoly on the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Strength of this they found in the famous British Pentecostal preacher and trosforkynneren Smith Wigglesworth's prophecy from 1936. Here, he predicted a coming Pentecost revival where David du Plessis was to play a major role. No prophecies, however, put God's clear words aside. The charismatic "revival" is not good enough in Yahweh's Word.

The charismatic "revival" story is the story of the future worst deception and Satan's attempt to copy the genuine gifts and the true service gifts. Well-known preachers who Poul Yonggi Cho, Harold Bredesen, Juan Carlos Ortis, Morris Cerullo, Kennth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland and many others have reinforced delusion and been contributors to the increasingly learn solving and ecumenical way "revival" has taken.

Arild Edvardsen stopped early release of the booklet the former Catholic priest Lionel Coeckelberghs from Brussels had written and published by Miracle Publishing. The booklet titled, "Is the Great Apostasy BACK TO ROOM front of our doors?". And just this defection, the book warns against, has been full and this is the charismatic delusion played an important role. The important Catholic Council in 1956, the 2nd Vatican Council, had provided an opening for fraternization with other churches and was described as a prophetic fulfillment. This was reinforced by the subsequent sessions of the Council. This worldwide ecumenical church that takes its distinct shape today warned all old Pentecostal preachers against. It was a classic theme in all meetings and conferences. And Coeckelbergs concludes his booklet: "The presence of true Christians will not be tolerated by the human universal Church. Believers from all Christian denominations whose churches have joined forces with the great universal church will have to leave their churches if they do not want to have his name erased from the book of life. The only place reserved for all true Christians will be outside the camp where they are going to fulfill Jesus' physical suffering. At this place, outside the camp, all honest and truth loving people meet each other and enjoy full community in the Spirit and peace in their hearts .... " So far there has been little gathering outside the camp, but the more in the religious apostates camp with the papal church in the center. And the alliance line seems today to extend beyond the Catholic church and embrace other religions. Who would believe that the Pentecostal preachers would speak warmly to the defense of the Koran and Allah?

The new Pentecostal revival, the charismatic, who also was named the "third wave" (1.pinsedag.2.Den classic pinsebevegelse.3.Den charismatic) soon foothold in the traditional churches, not least in the Catholic Church. Cardinal Suen received his "Åndsdåpsopplevelse" and spoke in tongues and many others followed, hundreds of thousands of Catholics speaking in tongues. Pope John Paul the 2nd has published a handbook, "Ut Unum Sint" (That may be one). It instructs him in how they Romers Catholic to put the Vatican's new ekumenisme in function. In June 2000, coordinated the Franciscan University of Staubenville, Ohio, a conference called "Celebrate Jesus 2000". (Jesusfeireing 2000) Well-known Catholic and charismatic leaders and speakers participated, and the invitation went out to: The charismatic revival, Catholics, Protestants, Pentecostals and non-union churches.

As the ministers were among others John Arnott (Chairman of the Vinyard and TB), Tom Forrest (international director of Evangelization 2000, and even under the leadership of the Vatican), Pat Robertson (leader of the Christian Network and the well-known Pentecostal) Jack Hayford (Chairman of the Pentecostal direction: the Foursquare Gospel and internationally known charismatic conference speaker and Bible teacher), Catholic Bishop Sam Jacobs, John Kilpatrick (Pastor of Brownsville Assembly of God, Pencecola), Franciscan Michael Scanlon, Thomas Trask (Secretary General of the Pentecostal movement, the Assemblies of God) Stephen Hill (known from the Pensacola revival and meetings of the Norwegian Pentecostal churches) and several other promoted priests and preachers.

What confusion. This sinister development of the so-called charismatic "revival", Norwegian pins leaders and others have been aware for some time, but few or none have dared to warn. No longer dare well to look closely at the Toronto "revival" or the Pensacola "revival" in which thousands of Norwegian Pentecostals and charismatics have flocked to.

A new breed of pastors and preachers have gradually taken over the churches. Ambitious and hungry for success and eager to get their dreams fulfilled, and the many prophecy that is pronounced upon them. Many are educated by the charismatic Bible schools in the United States or other countries, or in the Norwegian and Swedish Bible schools where teaching is dominated by the charismatic preaching.

Many things could have been written to document this and the developments that have led to the condition that now prevails also in Scandinavian countries. I have many articles and teaching tapes substantiated why I believe that the states Paul describes in 2.Kor.11. 3-4 for a snake and seduction as subtle and corrupting has deceived the believers to follow another Jesus, another spirit and another gospel, met today in the charismatic - ecumenical movement.

The fire that lit the apostles and early Christians at Pentecost and then came back to power in 1901 and beyond is so essentially different from the fire that came with the charismatic "revival". This new fire creates an experience community and a community of faith built on the apostles' doctrine and uncompromising related to its truth. The new fire does not burn up sin, heresy, compromise the spirit of Babylon and the religious-political confusion. But it directs its fire and power against those who will follow the Word, the apostolic doctrine, holiness, radical repentance and biblical ministry and church life. There is a fire that antennas and uses secular done singing style, rock, drama, theater, sports, dance and other kinds of secular entertainment. The fire in their worship scares those who are born in the Spirit's atmosphere and who knows the real sweet and sublime form of worship. The new "revival" froze out the good old faithful, Spirit-filled and Bible-believing preachers. And we see today that the Pentecostal movement's bodies are dominated by this terrible apostasy which they call "revival".

In these charismatic meetings, I am convinced that none of Pentecostal pioneers would thrive. They were baptized in the "Holy Spirit" and not "another spirit".

This revival has destroyed churches, preachers, elders, Bible schools singing and music, face shapes, worship, gifts, view of holiness and separation, mission, church growth, conferences, events, Christian magazines and periodicals, etc. It is tragic when the gifts states lie and false teachings. It is a serious signal when the "Spirit baptism" made hundreds of thousands of Catholics to even more pavetro, Mariatilbedende saints and Catholics, when the Episcopal clergy were even more sacramental, when the Lutherans became even more convinced of their faith. Fear to deal with all of this has crippled almost all 2.bølge Pentecostal leaders and witnesses.

There is not space in the magazine to elaborate on what I have touched on in detail. But you have been saved and filled with the Holy Spirit in more than 20 years, so take time to ponder on the enormous development that has taken place. Dare you to God and his Word say that you are satisfied with what has happened?

And you who have been saved in recent years. You have hardly heard the good, old-fashioned apostolic preaching. You think that you experience in charismatic meetings is true Pentecostal revival and get carried away. I would like to contact you and give you some meeting record that will open your eyes and open doors for you into a rich life of God in the Word. Do not be deceived any longer. Across the world, progress is now a true Pentecostal revival of the old and genuine kind where a biblical preaching draws up the old guidelines and limits to the world and the fallen religious churches marked and where the Bible's prophetic warnings about the future åndsvillfarelser and false revivals taken seriously.

Some will say that I'm unkind as I write this. My heart burns for love of you who read this. The charismatic movement has destroyed the biblical concept of love and introduced an unbiblical tolerance. So I expect little understanding from the side. Their far-reaching tolerance, ranging from the Moslems, Catholics and Maran Ata, has never embraced us. But you still have spiritual gangsyn know that there is something in the Bible called "the faith once for all was delivered to the saints", and it is worth fighting for. (Jud.1-2)

I am also aware of, and emphasizes the continually in my preaching, that there are honest souls everywhere and in all churches, even among the charismatics. I meet them and know the Spirit of society, even if we do not share the vision of all things. It is not those I write about the warning words, but the main trend that goes in the wrong direction and the leaders who are wanted you and drivers who are deceivers and wolves in sheep's clothing.
