 CHINESE LEADER SPEAKS OUT


[b]CHINESE LEADER SPEAKS OUT[/b]
-Brother Yun.

The Great Commission has not changed. There are many
churches trying to create a heaven here on earth, but until the
Western Church obeys the Great Commission and takes the
gospel to the ends of the earth, people are just playing with God
and are not really serious about the truth. Many churches look
beautiful on the outside, but are dead where it counts, on the
inside. If you truly want to see God move, the two main things
you must do is learn the Word of God and have the obedience to
do what God tells you to do.

In Finland in 1999 I was asked to be one of the main speakers at
a conference attended by about one thousand church leaders. The
main speaker was a well-known American preacher. Every time he
spoke it was about the love and goodness of God. During the
prayer time everyone fell down on the floor and laughed.

After I spoke I commanded people to kneel down at the foot of
the cross of Jesus, and they wept! Tears always come first before
the Lord truly moves. He will never pour his blessing out on
unsanctified and selfish flesh. The cross of Jesus must be at the
centre of everything we do.

If you do these things you will see revival. Are you willing to give
your all to God and to his service? "Those who are wise will shine
like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to
righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever." -Daniel 12:3.

Many Christians have also asked me why miracles and signs and
wonders are so prevalent in China, but not so evident in the West.

In the West you have so much. You have insurance for everything.
In a way, you don't need God. When my father was dying of
stomach cancer, we sold everything we had to try to cure him.
When we everything was gone we had no hope but God. We
turned to him in desperation and saw him mercifully answer our
prayers and heal my father. We reasoned that if God could do
that then He could do anything, so our faith grew and we've seen
many miracles.

In China, the greatest miracles we see are not the healings or
other things, but lives transformed by the gospel. We believe we're
not called to follow signs and wonders but instead the signs and
wonders follow us when the gospel is preached. We don't keep
our eyes on the signs and wonders; we keep our eyes on Jesus.

Every house church pastor in China is ready to lay down his life
for the gospel. When we live this way, we'll see God do great
things by his grace.

"In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not."

Lord, we have taken you for granted in this nation. We are too strong in our Christian traditions. We have confused our religous heritage for repentance and faith. We think we are chosen people who have became a great nation deserving of your blessing, when in reality we have become wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.

"He came unto his own, and his own received him not."

Lord, don't take away the true blessing of your Spirit from us. If need be, let us who claim to be rich purchase gold tested in fire...and let us who claim to be righteous put on white clothing that covers our shame, and place salve on the eyes of those of us who presume to lead the blind, so that we can truly see for ourselves.

"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. "

Bless the Lord oh my soul.

 Re: CHINESE LEADER SPEAKS OUT

Alas he speaks the truth about us in a very real way. Weeping before the altar is so needed. They are ready to lay down their lives for the gospel and so many minsters I know would just as soon leave their church if they don't get the right health care plan. Sad.

Blessings.

I was watching the Leonard Ravenhill Interview a few times recently and his admonition and plea was for us to forget about signs and wonders and focus on the most important thing, "its time to get serious about the most serious thing in the world, the birth of souls at the altar." He gives an 10-15 desperate cry over the situation of the altars and how people are not coming to [b]know[/b] God truly or being born again. Transformed lifes have to happen!
