 Re:

I'm on part 6...

The Lakeland Revival is strange fire at best. I don't see how any real christian can deny that.

Lev 10:1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.

Num 3:4 And Nadab and Abihu died before the LORD, when they offered strange fire before the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai, and they had no children: and Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the priest's office in the sight of Aaron their father.

Num 26:61 And Nadab and Abihu died, when they offered strange fire before the LORD.


Hopefully they took to heart what you had to say. Don't we want God's best or a little of this and a little of something not of God?

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

 Re: lack of knowledge

Thank you for the links; I have been anticipating watching them.

And, I also had a brief response to add:

Quote:
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.



This verse is continually coming to my heart in prayer, for this reason:

[b]2 Peter 1[/b]
8. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you [u]neither useless nor unfruitful[/u] [b]in the [u]true knowledge[/u] of our Lord Jesus Christ[/b].

(Read 2 Peter 1, to see these qualities.)

11. [b]for [u]in this way[/u][/b] [u]the entrance into the eternal kingdom[/u] of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ [b]will be abundantly supplied to you[/b].

Amazing Grace! The Narrow Path abundantly supplied in Christ Jesus!

This isn't focusing on scholarly knowledge either, but, much more:

[b]John 17[/b]
3. "This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

[b]1 John 5[/b]
19. We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
20. And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

[b]John 17[/b]
21. that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, [u]so that[/u] [b]the world may believe that You sent Me[/b].

This is interesting how our Lord explains this way that the world may believe that the Father has sent His Son, Jesus Christ.

 Re:

It seems like what was discerned on Greg's TV interview by everybody (but went unsaid) that the Lakeland "Revival" really seems like nothing more than a mere show. That is why there is no impact on the local community and no trickle effect.

Indeed, watching a clip from the revival made me feel like I was watching a car dealer on TV trying to sell me something. Indeed, it seemed no different than a Benny Hinn crusade that you see on TV. Having an ongoing Benny Hinn style crusade is a far cry from having revival. What grieves me most is that very popular "prophetic voices" are promoting this revival as the "third wave" (in succession to Brownsville and Toronto). Indeed, the Lakeland Revival web site is full of pomp and arrogance, that has a great overestimation of itself.

At least with all the problems you had at Brownsville, there was an emphasis on preaching the word of God, and there were many wonderful salvation stories. Yeah, there was a lot of barn yard nonsense, but, there were scores of people being broken over their sin.

Good job Greg. You really had some good answers. The guy you interviewed with made me a little squimish with his overly sympathetic stance on Lakeland, and sometimes, he was a little flippant and too casual with most anything he said. But you did good. I pray people were blessed.

 Re:

I just finished watching it as well. The sound of the video was a really low for me. Had to turn my volume to max just to listen.

I agree with KingJimmy, I wasn't fond of the host either :P

Greg your comments were great and the callers were great as well. I pray the concerns raised by the dialogue wakes people up to the true heart of Revival.

And, in terms of this comment:

Quote:

As I was searching out testimonies and witnesses to the truth of what is occurring in Lakeland, I came across this website:

(click on the picture of Todd Bentley with the title)
WHAT ABOUT THE FLORIDA HEALING REVIVAL?
A Biblical Response

This particular response (though in extent being brief) really hit hard on the core issues of this ministry down in Lakeland. I was actually rather shocked by this rebuke, especially in consideration of the comment about the popular "prophetic voices" who are promoting this revival as the "third wave"; and, also, the "healing angels" that are so fondly promoted in the Lakeland services.

Well, I put this link out there for your considerations.

Be blessed.

 Re:

Hey Greg,

well done man, I know this may sound weird, but I'm proud of you. You really spoke well and may this be the beginning of more opportunities for you.
