Torrey (then president of Moody Bible Institute). I bear none of these men, living or dead, any personal ill, but I found their ignorance of biblical doctrine astounding. The first wave of the moving of the Holy Spirit began at the beginning of the century with the Pentecostal movement. Similarly what Pentecostals term “ministry” commonly happens during the altar service, as people minister to one another in prayer. It is certainly true (no conscious Orthodox person will deny it) that Orthodox Christians are sometimes put to shame by the fervor and zeal of some Roman Catholics and Protestants for church attendance, missionary activities, praying together, reading the Scripture, and the like.

The Vatican has a large number of bureaucratic divisions (“congregations”)—I suppose that the CDF only has jurisdiction for intra-Catholic “charisms.” On the other hand, its scope is broader: It deals with other movements, many of them involving lay people as well as priests and members of religious orders, as long as they are not directly part of the official hierarchy—such as the Legion of Mary, Cursillos, and Communion and Liberation The Master's Plan for Making Disciples: Every Christian an Effective Witness Through an Enabling Church.

Even the promoters of this emotionalism admit that it is open to diabolical illusion, for an evil spirit may manifest himself In Search of Significance. There is the Lamb that takes away the sin of the whole world!�� From then on, Jesus Himself is the only Mediator and intercessory High Priest between humanity and God the Father!�� Thus, there cannot be �a new breed� of �Elijahs� EVER AGAIN!� The reason why I wrote so much about paganism, pederasty, patriarchy and misogyny, is to show how all this pagan dirt impacted on Christianity � and especially on modern clergy and their dangerous practices in church.� Please, never believe that �everything God did is not written in the Bible,� �therefore we are manifesting these strange miracles.�� In Mt. 4:4, when Satan tried to add to, and manipulate the truth of God�s Word, Jesus answered calmly, �Man shall not live by bread, [physical necessities and visible signs and miracles] alone, but from EVERY WORD that proceeds from the MOUTH OF GOD!�� Everything we need for our spiritual, emotional, and physical lives were explained in the entire context of Biblical truth!� The TRUTH of God�s entire Word is ALL we need!� Therefore, may God give us the grace never to be deceived into thinking that we may say and do just what we like because it is covered in a religious shroud.� Jesus will hold us accountable for EVERY WORD we speak, because He saved His believers to show their love for Him through their obedience to His Moral Law, and to build His Kingdom in righteousness, Godly love, and His absolute truth.� Thus, lies, half-truths, and other manipulative, malicious words against �our neighbors� constitute tongue-murder or character-murder, which clearly characterize us as children of the devil, for �he was a murderer from the beginning,� (Jn. 8:44; Mt. 5:21-22.)� Do not be deceived: ALL those who prophesy falsely and teach false doctrines remain mass tongue murderers, who speak ETERNAL DEATH over all their followers!� Still, in Pentecostal/Charismatic abuse of the verse, �life and death is in the power of the tongue,� means they can �create� their own world and destiny �by the power of their words.�� Because of their alleged �creative power,� they teach that one should never confess any �negativity,� thereby �cursing yourself and others� �with the power of the tongue.�� To them, this means, even though you know about great mismanagement of funds, soul and life destroying abuse and false doctrine, or if you are on the brink of death with pain and fever, etc., you should never confess sickness, problems, or weakness of any kind.� You should smilingly praise God jubilantly while �withstanding the devil� by confessing you are healed, blessed, etc., until the miracle manifests itself.� However, in Scriptural contexts this really means, (Prov. 18:2,) To speak life is to speak �the truth in love:� God�s eternal truth of His Word especially.� To speak death is to sow discord and spiritual and emotional corruption through lies, manipulation, and the twisting of God�s eternal truth.� As for �resisting the devil,� James 4:7-8 teaches, �SUBMIT yourself to [the truth] of GOD [WHO IS TRUTH, and then you can] resist the devil and he will flee from you.� Draw near to God [in prayer, Scriptural obedience, worship and praise,] and He will draw near to you.� CLEANSE YOU HANDS, you sinners, and PURIFY your hearts, you double-minded�� Let you laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom [as you] humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up!�� Thus, the of Scripture makes it obvious that Jesus did not go into the wilderness, Gethsemane, or to the cross smiling or practicing positive confession � although He never complained without reason and in a lack of faith.� He knew the real cause of His torment and His� destiny here on earth.� This illustrates that Jesus� humanity was just as real as His suffering.� Likewise, our fight to grow in the truth of God and to progress in HIS knowledge, which brings true freedom from this world, is very real as Satan does not shoot paper darts.� This battle becomes so much more real when God, in His infinite grace, uses us in the fight for the salvation and redemption of other souls, (Eph. 6:10-18.)� It is another misunderstood fact, but Jesus� fight to keep us in His eternal freedom is also our calling in Christ, as we were all commanded to obey His Commission to make disciples, baptizing them, teaching them HIS truth, etc., (Mt. 28:19-20.)� Personal surrender to GOD IS His power, because you have to die to really live spiritually in Him�� If ever the Spirit has taught us one unwavering truth, it is that, by ourselves, we are nothing, and we can do nothing without Him.� Contrary to the false prosperity doctrine of the Pentecostal/Charismatic Movement, Jesus did not call us to be filthy stinking rich kings in this world, although He will always make a way for us as strangers and sojourners in this dimension, (Heb. 11.)� Jesus called us to continually die the inglorious death of the cross, metaphorically and even physically if necessary, for His TRUE cause.� Spiritual and emotional death to sin and self comes before Life in Christ because His death and life transcends this world in totality.� His Life is SO high above everything in this world that not even physical DEATH can touch it.� Therefore, He called us to DIE emotionally to everything and everyone that can keep us away from Him so that nothing, not even physical death itself, can touch our eternal Life in Him, (1 Jn. 5:18-20.)��� However, neither suffering nor spiritual and emotional victory make us special in any way.� It is simply our way of life in Christ, which we accept under His WILL and GUIDANCE as �chastisement� that benefits our character and service to Him now, as well as our eternal lives in heaven, (Heb. 12:3-11.)� Oh, and now I�m talking about things Prosperity teachers do NOT want to hear because, to disseminate their false gospel, they have torn all this from their Bibles!� Nevertheless, no one can change the contextual truth of God�s Word!� Without continual death to sin and self, none can live in Christ � a sore fact that was replaced by the doctrine of theosis, positive confession, and the sinful yearning for outward prosperity.� It is because of this continual death, (the cross of Christ in every area of our lives,) that most believers choose to reject the Truth of our Risen King, and choose the deception and eternal mass murder of church religion .� While we should take care not to fall into Satan�s trap to be pessimistic and complain, the ungodly doctrine of positive confession is nothing but the old occult technique of Visualization and Positive Confession disguised as true �Rhema,� the power of God�s spoken Word.� Of course, God still does miracles!� And He really gave us His Spirit and His GIFTS to do His miracles too, (Mark 16:16-18.)�� Yet, submitted to God, we should always focus on our all-powerful God and the truth of His Word, and bring everything to Him in prayer first.� But if you are in pain, or hungry and cold while you say you are not, you are lying.� You are not condemning or cursing yourself or others by telling the truth, or by merely relating the facts of a situation
