Wednesday's Word - Making It Up as You Go

          Have you heard about what’s going on in Lakeland, Florida? It seems that there’s a revival that’s been going on there called the ‘Florida Outpouring’ that started as something smaller somewhere around April 3rd and continues in an overfilled sports stadium to this day. There have been reports of miraculous healings, signs and wonders, even about 8 or so people raised from the dead. I’m not making this up, honest. So what’s the deal? Is this God doing something special in Florida? How can we know?

          A good place to start is the leader of this ‘revival’ Todd Bentley of the New Apostolic Reformation. This movement has included renewals and revivals in Toronto, the UK and Pensacola. My only concern here today is that we stay grounded in The Scriptures and not allow ourselves to be “wowed” by these types of things, especially in the times that we’re living in.

Here’s the word:

Jeremiah 6: 6 Thus says the LORD, "Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, Where the good way is, and walk in it; And you will find rest for your souls. But they said, 'We will not walk in it.'

as far as miracles:

2 Corinthians 11:12 But what I am doing I will continue to do, so that I may cut off opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the matter about which they are boasting. 13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

          I would expect that these types of events will become more and more common as time goes on, which is why I encourage you to secure yourself in the truth of God’s word and in the strength of a good Bible believing, Bible teaching local body of believers. Continue in your first love, the ancient paths and be careful not to follow those who are making it up as they go.


In Him,
Cros
