Spiritual restorations are not spiritual revivals. According to Scripture, spiritual revivals have always been the times of vast outpourings of the Holy Spirit. In the Holy Bible, there are four great outpourings (spiritual revivals) of the Holy Spirit that are found in the Book of Acts. Moreover, spiritual revivals or outpourings of the Holy Spirit ONLY poured out on willing and cooperative reborn and saved souls.
Most believers in Christ today call themselves an epithet that neither Christ Jesus nor His first-century Disciples turned Apostles say in the Holy Bible followers of Christ should call themselves. They call themselves “Christians.” Most believers in Christ today also claim to worship God according to the established ways of their organized religion, faith, or belief that neither Christ Jesus nor His first-century Disciples turned Apostles declare in the Holy Bible are how Father God wants followers of Christ to worship Him. These believers worship Father God according to the ways that were established by man-made organized “Christianity.”
The evil Jezebel Spirit will stir up wickedness and apostasy with her “adorned” unholy beliefs and worldly wisdom. Enticement is the aim of the Jezebel Spirit, for it seeks to seduce faithful, obedient, service-oriented, Agápe loving, spiritual laborers into a marriage with her secular systems with their gods. RESIST through the power and authority the Holy Spirit gives.
The only way we will be able to produce the Fruit of the Holy Spirit is to answer the Vine’s Divine Call and then yield to the Husbandman’s Divine Care.
If we are the Lord’s disciples and He truly has set us free from the unbiblical traditions of the institutional “church’s” men (and women), then we should have a true biblical perspective (we should base our approach to understanding how to use the terms apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, teacher, and so forth on nothing but Scripture). The biblical perspective on how the Holy Bible deals with the issue of how to use the terms apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, teacher is that there obviously is a very big difference between disciples of Christ Jesus “holding an office in the Body of Christ” and disciples of Christ Jesus “functioning in the Body of Christ.”
Saying that we love our brothers and sisters in Christ is not enough. If the world is ever going to believe in our Lord and Savior, we must demonstrate His kind of love. Real love is godly actions.
