Why the Pentecostal-Charismatic movement has ended in error!
2. Tim. 4. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure the healthy doctrine, but after their own lusts take themselves teachers in droves, having itching ears, 4 and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and be turned unto fables. 5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry!
David du Plessis brought the message of the Holy Spirit into many denominations, it is claimed, but no learning, then there is delusion. Revival, åndsutgytelse without a holy life and a biblical doctrine leads into error. Therefore, we in Smyrna Oslo and through my service as emphasis on Bible teaching. We have commentaries and Bible list of all the books of the Bible on our website.
Pentecostalism strength and weakness!
Matt. 22. 29 But Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.
God can and will do great work in our lives, some he does. God can do more in 5 minutes than what we can achieve in the course of 5 years. In Pentecostalism and the charismatic movement is very strong experience. But what scripture teaches, immersing themselves in the Word and live by the Word, it is not nearly as strong. Here than the Pentecostal Charismatic movement strength and weakness!
Most of Christianity versus the word of God!
2. Pet. 1. 15 But I will make myself and diligence that I at any time after my death to be remembered this. 16 For it was not followed cunningly devised fables came when we made known unto our Lord Jesus Christ, the power and coming, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 For he received honor and glory from God the Father, and the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, 18 and this voice we heard borne from heaven, for we were with him on the holy mountain. 19 And the more firmly we have the prophetic word, that ye do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, 20 since I mainly know this that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation, 21 for no prophecy arrived at by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke by the Holy Spirit.
God's word is no longer essential for faith, life and learning!
Foamer than Pentecostal Charismatic on the surface as they apparently seem to be "most" of Bible-believing Christianity. Coming to those under the skin, deeper down, so the result is depressing!
There are so many things to grippe obtain!
Jesus spoke of taking up his cross to follow him, without it we are not worthy of him! There are of course right, good and wonderful to stand up at meetings and gatherings with other believers to proclaim both the one and the other. But that's when we should and must make decisions of who we want to follow or not to show whether we take up the cross, choose God's way or not! This is a common weakness among Free Church, particularly Pentecostal-Charismatic Christians who can not accept anything on certain terms. Such as having a procedure, a well-liked, has the right friends, some have prophesied of competent etc. Then the majority for not saying anything devoured raw and straight down.
When Derik Prince married the divorced Ruth, as "solved" this problem is very, very easy. God had spoken to the Prince that he should marry Ruth though God's word says that to marry a divorcee is to conduct / practice / living in adultery and sin. But "God said." This is of course either from one's own flesh or demonic activity!
Pastor Jan Aage Torp has received so many prophecies of the of famous Pentecostal preachers such as Emanuel Minos etc. That he is far removed from God's word. That he stands and immediately "hit" one who is 20 years younger than himself, there is no obstacle. That sex demons and flesh is in full activity does not prevent him, he has so many "biblical prophecies" of himself that he is above God's word. Prophecies are from God means Pentecostal Charismatic, even if it goes completely against God's word. Such a lie prophecies are not thousands, but millions of such extreme and sectarian circles.
Then Evangelist Aril Edvardsen began its operations in the south with increasing support was breach between him and the Pentecostal movement in Norway. Edvardsen became more and more extreme in everything he did, taught and preached. At the end of his life he was just as groggy in the spiritual realm that he really showed what he believed. He read and preached from the Quran and surrounded himself with Muslims, Katolikere and all who accepted what he stood for. Pentecostal Experience without a clear biblical teaching is probably the biggest, most imaginative and extreme than you can imagine. Not least this we looked at Edvardsen. At Pentecost vouched for him and had called a reconciliation meeting with him was really like to reconcile with Satan.
Today in Pentecostalism is becoming more and more "teachers" who take over the movement. But what "teachers"? Populists and Second Hend preachers. Pentecostalism is founded by people who went in faith, but is more and more taken over by people who are admistratorere of what became the first Pentecostal acquired faith. Taking a state church so get over at least hear a learned priest, but Pentecostal Charismatic mimic this, but only in a light version. When you've gone away from what was a strength, and tried to imitate it a once walked out of. What is it then become? As I see it, a kind of light version of the state church but just more populist and really like liberal and a church, not a movement longer and people who go with the living God!
The preachers who are sent to the Pentecostal Charismatic movement is unfortunately all too often neglected, ignored and hold both down and without a past. This in turn makes it the carnal and worldly elements and preachers who wins more and more foothold. Than must remember that in the independent congregation is loose structure that is based on trust and influence. That is becoming more and more carnal and worldly who takes over as the ministers too then. In the State church, a if one will serve God educate themselves, get a job and thus affect people. In a movement that Pentecostalism is one of many ways the mercy of a calling of the church, not least of elders. When this does not work, then nothing really works. But that said will, a influence in and through the Church, as a train to it. While in the free church movement is dependent on mutual trust and recognition.
Final Comment: Simple is usually also the best!
It seems to me that Pentecostals are no longer friends with Pentecostal Lutheran light! History shows us that the church's 2000 long journey has been marked by apostasy, maturity and a distortion of the truth! But God has raised up a simple, powerful and who have taken the word of God as it says seriously. Acted then and experienced the power of it. But at the same persecution and rejected by the vast majority of what they stood for, experienced and taught. Finally, let me take an example. Before Israel became an independent state again in 1948, so was the entire religious esemblementet negative to Israel to get their country back. Those who opposed power over someone else was Spirit-filled believers, when in particular Pentecostals as TB Barratt, Sverre Kornmo here in Norway. While the "Bible-believing" Lutherans as Ole Hallesby and many others strongly opposed. Who was right? It was the Bible-believing and Spirit-filled Pentecostal. This is where the strength of the Free Church is that one believes the Word of God as it is written. Experienced it and go victorious and strengthened. Lange educations, much study and above to question God's word has time after time proven to lead astray! The combination by reading the word of God and act on it, to experience the power and blessing of it. This is the Pentecostal movement has strayed from. How to get back? The road is long, but by repent and begin to follow God's word and not prophecies, visions, human opinions and affiliations so is opportunity there!
I have experienced that it is to easy to believe God and His word and nothing else. That's what brings the wonderful and marvelous blessings and revelations. It is to read, pray and seek God that I have come to some new views. How wonderful it is to get going with Him who gave their lives and blood for me and all of us? The opportunity is open to anyone and everyone, it is just to get into the right groove and the right path in life and learning, Amen Hallelujah!
