Thank you, Scarlett.
Dawson: “I am certainly not defending Pentecostal/Charismatic excess, fake revivals, nor the shenanigans of some ministers in that field, but I stand with Balcombe in standing up for the obvious truth of the work of God in the world in these last days.”
Nor am I. Indeed, I am firmly opposed to false “anything”, most of all, so called “ministers” or “ministries” that denounce the work of the Holy Spirit in the world today by falsely claiming miracles, prophecies, healings and tongues ceased with the Apostles. This is simply not true or biblical, and is negating, and “taking away” from the Word of God, something that is forbidden by the LORD.
Those who do so, are usurping and violating the Word of God, the Power of His Holy Spirit, and adhering to a false gospel devoid of hope and the power provided to lead a joyful and productive Christian walk.
There are many such false prophets who because of an apparent intellectual mindset are preaching a “form of godliness, but deny the power thereof”. Jesus Christ never taught such a intellectual form of dead religion as such as has sadly cropped up in such “ministries”, including on the Internet.
It seems very telling to me that many of these are also begging donations for their dubious efforts, (selling their wares/books/etc, to the naive and unlearned). How many, I wonder, have been turned away from the truth of the gospel because of these?
Follow Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior, not man.
John 8: 31Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
