These reforms are not something which need to be applied. They are the
fruit of a restored personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Many pay lip-service to the relationship with Jesus Christ that we have
as Christians. I am speaking of the life-changing wilderness restoration
which is occurring in this hour.
TWO MAIN REFORMS:
FAITH's emphasis has changed...
old way - Word-Faith Charismatic [REVERSED EMPHASIS ...they
got it BACKWARDS]
1. faith in word of God (logos)
2. faith in word of God (rhema)
3. faith in Jesus
The past emphasis has been on the
logos- the written promises of God - and lip-service is paid to
rhema and especially faith in Jesus(3).
Logos does not feature in true Biblical faith. Some have redefined
rhema to mean the written word spoken by
you and not the now word spoken by
love of God determines the emphasis. Lukewarm believers favour
the above emphasis. Those that love and hunger to know Jesus Christ and
His Presence more intimately are only satisfied with the new way.
PRAISE AND WORSHIPPRAISE AND WORSHIP has changed...
Charismatic worshippers CLAP their hands... Post-charismatic worshippers
LIFT their hands... High praise has disappeared ...
This confirms the truth that Jesus revealed to Kenneth Hagin in a visitation
many years ago.
The old way has been replaced by...
a deeper reverential worship in His Presence ... soaking worship(Benny Hinn's leading saints into the Presence of God in evangelistic
crusades is a taste of what is to come)
love of God is the measuring stick. Lukewarm believers are happy
with the old way. Those that love and hunger to know Jesus Christ and His
Presence more intimately are only satisfied with the new way.
These two changes which occur revolutionise the way things are done in
the church today. All things will change in churches worldwide, especially
in America which has been strongly seduced by the Word-faith movement.The
fullness of the end-time
harvest will be the fruit of this revival and restoration.
Have you not discerned ?
Unbalanced doctrine is used to justify the above way. Doctrine is used
the flesh. Faith in ones
own strength. Trusting God apart from His Spirit. The way below
is the way of Jesus Christ and Him
crucified. It is the way of the
The post-charismatic emphasis is on faith in Jesus.
No longer is lip-service paid to our faith in Jesus but the
deep foundation as clearly revealed by Jeanne Guyon in '
Experiencing the depths of Jesus Christ' is strongly evident. This
is the same foundation that Hudson Taylor, Watchman Nee and others had
in the past...
Most churches throughout the world need to be revived and reformed today.
Many today are blind to their own spiritual condition.

"Most of what is called worship in the Charismatic movement is not worship
at all...... it is soulish...... Much of the music that we have
in church today appeals to the soul, stimulates the soul, It is very much
the same kind of music as is used in the world to stimulate the soul........
Having lived five years in Africa, I am aware that certain repetitive themes
and rhythms can deaden your sensitivity. If you sit under that long enough,
especially when it is very loud, you lose the capacity to discern. And
in Africa those rhythms are used to call up demons."
Quotation from Derek Prince to his coworkers - "
Protection from Deception" - March 1996
In the Charismatic move, Christians have brought the brass of the world
into the temple of the Lord as a substitute for pure gold. What they have is
a mixture; it is not pure. Therefore, I can only bless My people so far,
because they have substituted brass for gold. They’ve brought the CLAPPING
and DANCING of the world into the temple."
Quotation from a visitation of Jesus to Kenneth Hagin in the book "
Plans, Purposes and Pursuits."
