THIS IS ONE OF THE DARKEST SPIRITS TO ATTACK THE PERSON OF THE HOLY GHOST AND THE BODY OF JESUS CHRIST IN CHURCH HISTORY. As a Pentecostal myself and with over 55 years of experience pastoring, I have witnessed the true anointing of the Holy Spirit. We must not allow ourselves to cast out the true in our devotion to the genuine. I yearn for revival with everything that is in me. Gladly, would I give up my own life or pay whatever cost if it would assure revival in our Pentecostal & Evangelical churches around the world. It is evident to me that there is a large company of good men and women who have the same intense desire. They are represented in many different fellowships of different persuasions. Why then does revival tarry? Has the Holy Spirit been so grieved that He is waiting for His people to repent?

I believe that one reason “revival tarries” is that Jesus Christ, the Lord of the Church, is waiting for the true believers to come to the end of themselves and our fleshly schemes. We all have witnessed one unbiblical trend after the other for several decades. Hilarious laughter is just the latest! I have known the Lord as my Savior for 61 years. I was saved in a solid Pentecostal church and was immediately taught a righteous lifestyle. My initial experience was so solid and real that nothing has made me desire to turn back to the beggarly elements. “O taste and see that the Lord is good.” (Psalm 34:8) He is life everlasting and I want nothing else.

During these 61 years, I have witnessed some incredible trends. The first I remember was Rev. A. A. Allen and certain phenomenon that accompanied his ministry. Crosses would appear in the foreheads, blood would appear on the body, and oil would flow in the hands of those anointed to pray for others. All of this created great debate and a multitude would go to witness the so-called miracles. Finally, Mr. Allen was caught drunk and later was reported dead from cirrhosis of the liver. I remember that, immediately upon hearing and viewing Mr. Allen, I knew something was wrong with these proclaimed activities. Some of the saints condemned me for my unbelief. I was still a teenager, but I believed everything had to be weighed by the Word of God and common sense. I still do.

No segment of people within the body of Jesus Christ has suffered so many impostors as Pentecostals. Their free styles of worship and their deep desire to see the Book of Acts manifest has made them susceptible to quick tongues and cheap emotions. I have often asked, “Will they ever learn?” Apparently not! Now that Pentecostalism has been accepted by a goodly part of the Christian world, these wild megatrends are playing havoc all over the church. The New Wave churches are intimately connected with the Catholic Church and this has opened the door for even greater deception in their ranks. The Virgin Mary is now being worshipped and New Wave proponents are talking in tongues at her shrines.

The Sovereign Holy Spirit! The person of the Holy Spirit (the Spirit of God) is absolutely sovereign. He will manifest Himself only when He can act sovereignly and in full accord of the absolutes of the Holy Scripture. “For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.” (Psalm 119:89) The Holy Spirit does not glorify Himself and acts only to exalt the person of Jesus Christ. To even imagine that the Holy Spirit would manifest Himself to exalt human emotions and to draw attention to a personality is repulsive. It is easy to see that something is wrong.

If Pentecostals and the New Wave churches have any desire of regaining the reputation they have lost over the last twenty to thirty years, then the place to start is in the Book of Acts. This history of the early church is the ironclad picture of the true body of Jesus Christ. The style, teaching and methodology of that great book is the example the Holy Spirit gave to guide our ministry coupled with the Epistles of Paul, Peter, James and John and rooted in the rest of the Holy Bible. We have God’s order for His church. Only foolish people will dare conduct the Lord’s business on any other basis. To even tolerate a minister or ideas that have no understanding or commitment to these truths is foolish and destructive to Christ’s body and His Church.

The following statement by D. Martin Lloyd-Jones from his book entitled, “Revival”, will give you some idea of what the great leaders of the church have stated in the past. “The need we say is the need of an outpouring of the Spirit of God. But, clearly, by definition, the Spirit of God can only be outpoured on and can only honor His own truth. The Holy Spirit cannot honor a lie. He cannot honor a negation of truth… So if we want the blessing of the Holy Spirit. Clearly, we must make sure that our position conforms to His truth.”

Satan, The Master Imitator! As mentioned earlier in this article, Satan’s primary method is an imitation of the real. There is a striking difference in the work of the Holy Spirit and the work of Satan. Satan approaches men by titillating their flesh. He scorns the use of one’s mind to believe and receive on the basis of faith and truth and convinces men to act on the basis of feeling and excitement. This is always one of the chief methods of error and false doctrine.

The Holy Spirit speaks to man’s spirit, not his flesh, and He reasons with men in their spirit according to the Word of God. “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” (Isaiah 1:18) You may get man’s attention by something he feels or sees (miracles or even great catastrophes), but you do not convert him on that basis. He is converted to Jesus Christ only by the Sovereign work of the Holy Spirit and through the unquestioned truth of the Gospel.

Holy Scripture teaches us that “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:44) The use of flesh and emotion in an effort to titillate and by that titillation draw men to God is utterly false and is another gospel. The Bible warns us, “… though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:8)

The gospel presentation and the conviction of the Holy Spirit do not need human aids. He does use human channels. “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” (2 Corinthians 4:7) Our function is to obey and fulfill the Word of God and then to depend wholly upon the influence and power of the Holy Spirit to transform the individual’s life.

Satan is delighted when the professing believer will use his methods to perform religious activities. Satan knows we are spiritual beings and that all actions that relate to our will or emotions also affects our spirit. It is imperative that every activity in the life of the church be totally Biblical and without admixture. There is no room for the so-called “relevant” approach to Biblical interpretation or methodology. Our efforts to be relevant with worldly thinking have almost totally destroyed our Christian universities and colleges and now our churches.

Revivals Of The Past! It really makes little difference whether the revivals of the past were led by Methodists, Presbyterians, Baptists or Pentecostals, etc. They were extremely similar and usually affected all the churches in a given geographical area. Yes, there was excitement, even great emotions of joy and worship and sometimes the emotions would get a bit out of hand. Almost always the leaders were Biblically conscious and very zealous to right any questionable activity lest the revival itself should be wrongly criticized. Their interest was to protect the integrity of the revival not to protect or promote some individual person.

John Wesley, founder of the Methodist church, lamented the deadness of churches in his generation. In one of his books he stated, “Because the love of many, almost all Christians so-called waxed cold. That was the real cause why the extraordinary gifts of the Holy Ghost were no longer to be found in the Christian church.” In a German work, Souer’s History of the Christian Church, vol. 3, p. 406, the following is found: “Dr. Martin Luther was a prophet, evangelist, speaker in tongues and interpreter, in one person, endowed with all the gifts of the Holy Spirit.”

Regarding Dwight L. Moody, here are a few quotations from page 402, Trails and Trumpets of Faith by Rev. D. D. Boyd, a Baptist minister. This man was a very intimate friend of the famous evangelist. “When I, a YMCA Member, got to the rooms of the Young Men’s Christian Association (Victoria Hall, London), I found the meeting ‘on fire.’ The young men were speaking with tongues, prophesying. What on earth did it mean? Only that Moody had been addressing them that afternoon! “What manner of man is this?” thought I, but still I did not give him my hand… Many of the clergy were so opposed to the movement that they turned their backs upon our poor innocent Young Men’s Christian Association for the part we took in the work; but afterwards when the floodgates of divine grace were opened, Sunderland (near London) was taken by storm.”

Some years ago Dr. F. B. Myer visited Estonia, one of the Baltic provinces of Russia, where he found some simple peasant congregations of Baptists. He wrote to the Londao Christian of the wonderful work of the Holy Ghost that he saw among them. He stated: “It is very remarkable at a time when the Lutheran Church of this land has lost its evangelistic fervor, and is inclined to substitute forms and rites for the living power of Christ, that God raised up a devoted nobleman, Baron Uxhall, to preach the gospel in all its simplicity, and is renewing among the peasantry those marvelous manifestations which attended the first preaching of the gospel when God bore witness to the message of salvation with signs and wonders and gifts of the Holy Ghost. To come across a movement like this is intensely interesting. The gift of tongues is heard quite often in the meetings, especially in the villages, but also in the towns. Here at Reval, the pastor of the Baptist Church tells me that they often break out in his meetings. When they are interpreted they are found to mean, ‘Jesus is coming soon; Jesus is near. Be ready; be not idle.’ When they are heard, unbelievers who may be in the audience are greatly awed.”

Charles Finney said in his autobiography, “When I received the Holy Ghost Baptism it was like waves of glory going through and through me. I literally bellowed out the unutterable gushes of my heart. If this continues I will surely die, but I had no fear of death.” This man was a great Presbyterian preacher. According to revival historian, Andrew Strom, here is a report from Charles Finney right out of one revival service. “I had not spoken to them in this strain of direct application more than a quarter of an hour, when all at once an awful solemnity seemed to settle down upon them. The congregation began to fall from their seats in every direction and cry for mercy. If I had had a sword in my hand I could not have cut them off their seats as fast as they fell. Indeed, nearly the whole congregation was either on their knees or prostrate in less than two minutes from this first shock that fell upon them. Everyone who was able to speak at all prayed for himself.” (“Brownsville, Pensacola – ‘Toronto’ Or Not?”, by Andrew Strom.)

On and on you can search the pages of history to discover a constant theme of power, anointing and Holy Ghost outpouring. When the fires of revival were burning the overwhelming results were conviction of sin and separation to Biblical Holiness. Often conviction was so strong that the sinners could not stand on their feet. They would fall in mass on their faces in the passion of repentance and reverent fear before the God of Holiness and judgment.

Here is another description of great conviction, Godly sorrow, and power that accomplished revivals of the past. “Some writers have pointed out that people ‘fell down under the power of God’ during many previous revivals. Yes, they fell down all right, under the most PIERCING SORROW AND CONVICTION OF SIN. They fell down under the preaching of Edwards, Whitfield, Wesley and Finney BECAUSE THEY COULD NOT STAND UNDER THE WEIGHT OF THEIR OWN SIN FOR A MOMENT LONGER. They fell as thunderstruck by the awesome HOLINESS of the living God. As I have said, I have been studying revivals for over twelve years now, and I would have to say that the overriding theme of genuine revival down the centuries has been TREMENDOUS CONVICTION OF SIN AND DEEP REPENTANCE (not ‘inner healing’, which has always been one of the very major emphases of the New Age movement worldwide, but is not found in the Bible).” (“Brownsville, Pensacola – ‘Toronto’ Or Not,” by Andrew Strom.)

THE KUNDALINI SPIRIT OF HINDUISM! What is called “falling out in the spirit”, “holy laughter” and the wild jerking and body gyration that is so dominant in many churches today, should be judged on the basis of what the Scriptures teach and what is changed in the lives of the individuals. It should never be borrowed from some false religion. There are accounts of worship, where David danced before the Lord and the healed man in Acts three, walking, leaping and praising God, but the individual was always reverent with great awe before the Lord. Never was there some kind of emotional titillation. While we should not condemn a person who falls on their back, neither should we promote that kind of religious exercise. In the Scripture they were not looking for a cheap blessing, they were crying out to a Holy God. The difference is between self-centered activity and God-centered activity. One is easily created by hypnotic induction and mass hysteria, while the other is usually related to hunger and thirst after God and offers little chance of being used to promote the preacher.

Many popular religious leaders of today would have a small chance of even being heard in a Holy Ghost revival based on the Word of God. Multitudes of churches have been duped over and over again with these kinds of cheap methods. Such activity could not survive in any religious atmosphere were it not for Biblical ignorance, and the desire to be successful at any cost. The willingness to sacrifice Biblical principle for success and a big time atmosphere has been growing for many years. We are now reaping the rotten fruit.

The long introduction in this chapter was for a purpose. I’m a Pentecostal and I believe in the entire Scripture as it relates to the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. I believe every believer has the Holy Spirit from the moment of conversion and the born again experience, but I believe there is a difference in men having all of Him and He having all of men. When we are saved, we have all of Him, but when we are filled with the Holy Ghost, He has all of us. That’s a world of difference. He fills the believer with His Spirit that they might have power to do His service and be His intimate servants. There is no other reason for the ministry of God, the Holy Spirit. The cheap noise called present day Pentecost has soured a multitude to the glory of God revealed in His church.

Holy Laughter seen in Charismatic circles and The Kundalini Spirit are so close in kin as to be scary. This is nothing less than bad fruit of a downward trend. We all have witnessed a direction in the church, which is termed “integration.” The first word they used was “relevant.” They wanted to make the church relevant to today’s culture. That change led us to the much deeper involvement in “worldly ways” that is now called “integration.” This benign sounding term really means the mixture of truth with whatever the world likes or wants for the sake of religious success. Psychology has been “integrated” with Biblical truth. Soul winning has become sociological techniques for inviting the non-religious into our churches. On and on the list goes. Now we see a heathen religious emotion right in the church, and worse, called revival.

But now we have reached the bottom. The “integration” witnessed in “Holy” laughter and wild emotions that imitate spirits of heathan practicies is nothing but raw occultism and Hinduism mixed with a religious experience. It was destined to happen from the moment we left the pure Word of God. That was Satan’s design all along, but a worldly church is always blind to the end result. Let’s listen and analyze a few remarks from the proponents of these questionable phenomenons.

One couple that were major names among the New Wave movement have a book entitled, Holy Laughter, in which they laud these strange happenings. In their own introduction they stated, “The Spirit of God is swiftly moving in breathtaking and sometimes startling new ways, and people of every tongue and every nation are letting out what is on the inside of them. …they are running at a fast pace to ‘Joel’s Bar’ where the drinks are free and there is no hangover! …and one of today’s signs ‘in the earth beneath’ is the ‘holy laughter’ which is supernaturally overcoming people in services all over the world!” (Holy Laughter, pp. 5-7) The language used by the authors seems cheap and the premise for their approval lacks Biblical foundation, but even deeper is the clear association with questionable integration. The psychological techniques used by New Agers are almost identical. “Letting out what is on the inside of them” is markedly different from the Biblical idea of “bring your burdens to the Lord and leave them there.” Our culture is rejecting the powers of Jesus Christ to transform life and is accepting techniques that arise out of ancient heathen practices and shaman activities.

The following excerpts describe an event, which, apparently, began in a large church in Lakeland, Florida. The author stated that the pastor “ … started excitedly calling us and telling us about this most unusual sign and wonder which was occurring in his church. … He … said that he had spent six weeks on the floor of his church laughing. …Marilyn Hickey had been there and he said that Marilyn had spent the entire time on the floor laughing. Then he shared with us how Rodney had called Marilyn to the microphone and she just laughed and laughed and then fell under the power of God without saying anything! (p. 35) We saw demonstrations of power with Rodney just pointing at people who would then fall under the power of God. We saw people trying to crawl away from the power, but they couldn’t get up off the floor. (p. 38) You can see these exact actions in videos of the Hindu Kundalini.

Here are further quotes from their book. “After we had shared on holy laughter the first time we went to LONDON, ENGLAND … The Holy Spirit’s presence was so strong. I turned around to the pastor and said, ‘You need the same anointing for holy laughter,’ and with that, I simply laid my hand on top of his head! … The expression on his face changed instantly! His eyes opened wider than anyone’s I have ever seen, and in less than two seconds he exploded with the greatest outburst of holy laughter I have ever heard! … He tried to stand up, but he was instantly so drunk on the power of the Holy Spirit that he couldn’t stand! I lightly laid my hand on his head again, and down on the floor he went, bam! He laughed and laughed, and rolled and rolled and tried to get up, but he was stuck with that same irresistible Holy Ghost glue which had caught me so many years before. He could do nothing but laugh and roll. (p. 53) “Pastor Dye spent most of Sunday laughing, but finally he leaped up and said, ‘Can I do the same thing and impart this laughter?’ We anointed him to do just that and he took off! Waves of people fell under the power of God and holy laughter broke out in one of the greatest demonstrations of Holy Spirit power we have ever seen…” (p. 56)

The book continues. “The woman could not forget what she said! …she went to church and lit a candle to Mary, and as she did, she burst out in holy laughter! Not only that, she began to sing sounds and words she had never heard in her entire life as Jesus baptized her with the Holy Spirit! (p. 71) We have seen a dove ‘like as of fire’ with a 50-foot wingspan appear in an auditorium. …When the dove mentioned above appeared, the people began screaming, ‘God save men, God save me!'” (pp. 71,72) It is not hard to see multiple contradictions in this book.

Revival historian, Andrew Strom, has documented the same activities of laughter and other strange manifestations occurring in the exact fashion among other religions. I will let him describe his findings, “I have to say that I have been quite amazed at how easily these counterfeit Toronto/Pensacola type manifestations have been allowed to sweep through the church, when they are found nowhere in the Bible, and yet right through today’s New Age movement. As one former devotee of Swami Baba Muktananda stated, the ‘Kundalini’ manifestations that accompanied the Swami’s ‘laying on of hands’ included uncontrollable laughter, crying, roaring, barking, shaking, etc. This is very common amongst the Hindu-based cults worldwide. And when Yan Xin, a Chinese “Qigong” occultic Master, gave a talk to a crowd in San Francisco in 1991, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that many in the crowd began to report ‘spontaneous movements’. Yan told his audience, ‘Those who are sensitive might start having some strong physical sensations – or start laughing or crying. Don’t worry. This is quite normal.’ Tell me, don’t these manifestations sound awfully familiar?

“And what about the manifestations that resulted from Franz Mesmer’s demonic ‘ministry’? Here is what the history books describe: ‘ … It was not uncommon for that person to then fall to the ground with his or her limbs jerking in convulsions. Twitching, eyeball rolling, strange grunts and cries, and hysterical laughter were also fairly common. The curious fact was that when these folk awoke from the ensuing coma [‘carpet-time’] … they often claimed to be healed from their particular complaint.’ Again, I ask the question: Doesn’t all this sound awfully familiar? (Such manifestations usually start off fairly ‘mild’ in any new movement, and then get progressively more bizarre as time goes on.)” (“Brownsville, Pensacola – ‘Toronto’ Or Not?”, by Andrew Strom.)

Let’s look at a visit to the Toronto Airport Fellowship. A dear friend and fellow Pentecostal pastor, Bill Randles, visited and wrote about this visit in his book, Weighed And Found Wanting. Here is his description: “… spiritual drunkenness seemed to be the predominant manifestation. After the invocation, ‘Come, Holy Spirit,’ the wide opened congregation began to stagger and sway. Loud, raucous laughter rolled over portions of the congregation, like a wave. I was deeply concerned about one young family I met. It seems that they had been one of the founding families of a People of Destiny Church (Larry Tomczak) in Ohio, 14 years ago, but had grown disillusioned and left. Now, they had found ‘it’ and were ready to take ‘it’ back with them to Ohio. Such a lovely family, who obviously had come to the Lord and served Him. They were shocked that night after I had told them I didn’t ‘buy it.’ I asked the dad, ‘Didn’t you have any reservations at all, coming into this wave?’ He emphatically replied, ‘No way, this is God! Two years of not feeling God is long enough!’ At this time in the service the drunkenness has taken over the congregation! People are stumbling and falling over each other by the dozens. Most are flat on their backs with a silly dazed grin on their faces or trying to get up and unable to. One man was yelling at the top of his voice, another lying on the ground, feet straight up in the air, laughing and trying to get his feet down. The ministry team is going around ‘swishing’ the wave on people, getting intoxicated themselves. I suppose in one sense this was ‘fun.’ It reminded me of my old days, high school ‘keg’ parties, only wilder yet. The whole time this is going on, the young man from Ohio is telling me, ‘This is God,’ his eyes are bloodshot, he is swaying as he stands there, and he’s breathing heavily, just about to fall over!” (Weighed And Found Wanting, Pastor Bill Randles, pp. 134-135.) The picture is unquestionably Kundalini Hinduism.

The Book of Acts and I Corinthians clearly indicate that such emotional hysteria was not tolerated. Apostle Paul said, Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine? And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped? For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle? So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air. There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification. Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me.” (1 Corinthians 14:6-11)

The apostle clearly connected wild emotions with heathenistic (barbarian) activities. The worship of heathen gods has always been accompanied by uncontrolled emotions. Listen to Elijah taunt the prophets of Baal for their hopeless wailing. “And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made. And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked. And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.” (1 Kings 18:26-28)

To accuse the Holy God of such foolishness and heathen practice is blasphemous. Our God is a God of reason and order. His Word laments the undisciplined. “He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.” (Proverbs 16:32)

Notice that a quote in this book ties the authors of the Holy Laughter to the Jungian idea of “Inner Healing” and “Healing of Memories,” both of which are New Age and heathenistic techniques. A little research will reveal the “integration” of Bible terminology, witchcraft and psychology all mixed-up together to form a “brew” for the socially unstable. “Twenty years ago at one of our home Bible study meetings we laid hands on Betty Tapscott, author of Inner Healing Through Healing of Memories and many other books, and she fell out under the power of God. She said one of us came by and said, ‘Lord, keep her down!’ She said it was as if something or someone’s hand was on her neck, gently but firmly holding her down so she couldn’t get up; like a powerful divine force holding her and making it impossible to get up.” (p. 127)

Satan’s Imitation! A New Testament Christian must be very careful not to deny the genuine work of the Holy Spirit while always discerning by the Word of God. God is a supernatural God and acts in supernatural power to reveal Himself. He heals miraculously. He endues His saints with power to overcome the devil in their lives and even to cast the devil out when the possessed are repentant and ready to honor the Lord Jesus. Apostle Paul was emphatic in his defense of God’s holy power operating in his life. “And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:1-5)

Don’t throw out the real as you carefully follow the things of God. Our faith is not in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. Study the Book of Acts and I Corinthians for God’s Divine order. The Holy Spirit is a gentleman. He does not induce men to act like fools, but to honor the Lord Jesus Christ. “Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.” “If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad? But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all: And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.” “How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.” “And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.” (1 Corinthians 14:20,23-25,26,32)

At the root of these psychic activities is untold wealth changing hands from those under the spell to the leaders of these doubtful emotions. How can men and women convince the multitude of New Wave disciples to hand over such huge amounts of wealth to a relative few key leaders. The only answer I can discover is the power of divination or divining wealth. It’s overwhelming to see the church world so profoundly deceived. It is becoming almost impossible for good people to find a Bible centered House of Worship. Choirs no longer sing the soul lifting music but must have dancers to entertain. Even the dancers are more and more acting under the Kundalini spirit of the Hindu religion. Integration has come full circle with the religions of the world.



    Dear Joe Cambers,

    I saw your article about those CRAZY INSANE CHURCHES. The modern CHARISMATIC & AND SPEAKING IN TOUNGUES MOVEMENT started out in Pentecostal churches, and then SPREAD TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCHES. Then it got to other denominations. The only reason why the disciples spoke in toungues was so people that came to Jerusalem from different parts of the world could HEAR THE GOSPEL IN THEIR OWN LANGUAGE. It was not a rithual. One apostle speaks in Greek: Another speaks Babylonian: Another speaks Aramanic: Another one speaks Egyptian: Another might speak Chinese: Another speaks German: Another might speak English: So that could have been most of the languages inthe world at the time. And many other languages. Since there were 120 people gathered in that house, if each person spoke a language that the others did not speak, there would be 120 languages. These were not in rithuals. These TRANSLATORS FOR FOLKS FROM AROUND THE WORLD THAT COULD NOT SPEAK HEBREW. The “SPEAKING IN TOUNGUES” today has nothing to do with translating languages for people around the globe. A computer can do that. The churches you mentioned in your article HAVE REALLY GONE WILD AND INSANE. The Holy Spirit DOES NOT THROW PEOPLE ON THE FLOOR IN SERVICES. Those people THROWN AROUND AND DRIVEN DRUNK IN CHURCHES WERE THROWN AROUND BY DEMONS, AND MIGHT HAVE EVEN BEEN DEMON POSSESSED. The GIANT FLAMING DOVE THAT APPEARED OVER-HEAD IN ONE CHURCH WAS PROBABLY A FALLEN ANGEL FROM HELL. The WILD EMOTIONAL CHANTS IS OF THE DEVIL. These churches that you mentioned are ABSOLUTELY INSANE AND CRAZY. I am afraid those folks are MENTALY ILL AND NEED TO BE TAKEN TO THE METAL INSTITUTIONS. If any of you folks are any of these crazy churches where folks get THROWN AROUND BY SPIRITS (DEMONS), GET OUT FAST! Those places are not safe. You can get hurt even physically in the CRAZY CHURCHES. It certainly is VERY DANGEROUS TO YOUR SOUL. The churches are not powered by the SPIRIT OF GOD, but are POWERED BY SATAN AND HIS DEMONS. IT IS DEMONS THAT THROW FOLKS TO THE FLOOR IN THE CRAZY CHURCHES. The “GOSPEL” preached in these churches is none other than the PORK-BARREL (Sound like Politicians) PROSPERITY ENTITLEMENT GOSPEL where the preachers promise something for nothing. These sound exactly like Politicians in Washington. Guess who these people of the LOOT-WARM LAODICEAN CHURCH VOTED FOR: OBAMA. The MUSIC in these churches is DRUID-ROCK MUSIC. The true Churches where the real gospel is preached do not do all that jumping around or throwing themselved on the floor. They focus mainly on STUDYING THE WORD OF GOD IN THE KING JAMES BIBLE. Their music is the OLD HYMNS. Sometimes they COUNTRY MUSIC at the old country churches, such as in SANDERS FAMILY CHRISTMAS or SMOKE ON THE MOUNTAIN. The true churches focused primarily on BIBLE STUDY. When people made a decision they came to the altar table and got on their knees and prayed. There was no jumping around. SO the real churches are not wild. They are tame. It is SATAN’S CRAZY CHURCHES THAT RUN WILD, BECAUSE THEY ARE INSANE, AND MIGHT EVEN BE DEMON POSSESSED.

    What do you think of that Joe?


    Keith Black

  2. Brother Joseph, your so right! John Todd (I believe Said) was an ex illuminist who came to the Lord back in the early 70’s (‘they’ did finally kill him just like they did Cooper back in Nov of 01) was saying how ‘they’ not only infiltrated the Pentecostal movement but also the whole of the Protestant movement which included Pentecost, Assy. of God, Baptist, Lutheran etc with success and that was back in the mid to late 70’s when he was saying that every chance he had!
    It almost seems that the Church needs a much closer walk w/Jesus but the Church (as a whole) has never (Nero and others like him) helped in seeding the Church via the Martyrs and all out persecution! What’s happening now is way more sinister intertwined w/this junk science of Darwinism and the illuminati ‘s manifesto implemented by Marx and other minions. These kids now a days almost seems that there chances of finding the truth could be almost chance-less but our God has His ways and maybe (very well maybe) what you wrote above might be what it will take. You know, the Romans got their kicks by grabbing a baby from it’s mothers arms and tossing it in the air and skewering it with there swords, this evilness is back but on steroids. If the Lord tarries, Christians (not those in name only) will be forced to endure some un-speak-able’s. Especially Americans have to understand the costs, the cost for not, will be much worse. We need to hold each other up in prayer and remember always He is Greater than the one that’s influencing the world. I believe with a doubt (it’s the only way that makes any sense) Jesus will remove His bride soon, I pray that it is soon but the Lord sacrificed His Son for us, we (I) must, (will) follow, follow, Him, all the way.

    God bless you
    all, we will un-
    derstand it one

    Dear Brother,
    thank you for
    being a solid
    servant of the
    Lord through
    out the scores
    of years, we
    all mean that!

  3. My advice to Christians: Use your head! God gave you a brain and the Bible – use them!!! These days a lie is often very subtle and wrapped up with a tiny bit of the truth to make it look legitimate. A good dose of common sense can’t hurt, either.

    For example, if you see a in a so-called church a group of people acting in a way that is contrary to what the Bible and very often your OWN conscience tells you is wrong, IT IS!

    Paul wanted order in the church, not chaos. He lays out in detail in 1 Corinthians chapters 12, 13, and 14 how the Holy Spirit apportions spiritual gifts, and how they should be used. It is not up to us to decide who gets what or to maunfacture some kind of “new gift” like this idiotic laughing, crying, falling down . . . well, you get the idea!

    Paul made this point:
    “If, therefore, the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tonguess, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say ye are mad?” (1 Corinthians 14:23)

    Now he was using the misuse of tongues as an example, but I think the principle can be applied universally. How can Christians ever hope to be taken seriously if people think we are weak-minded or, worse, crazy?

  4. I live in Florida. My husband and I were very caught up in the Lakeland/Brownsville revivals over the years. We did not know the word of God well enough to discern this Kundalini spirit. We were hungry for the things of God and maybe even a little “bored” with “churchianity”. It was difficult to discern the truth because the R.H. Browns know the word of God and they know how to pray. They have more passion to reach people for God’s kingdom in their pinky finger than Ive have in my whole life. This too is confusing. Rodney in particular came from a strong Pentecostal home and witnessed numerous miracles as his folks would pray. His passion and hunger for the things of God motivated me to want the same. However, the more meetings I attended over the yrs. the more uneasy I became. This being said, I too believe this is a Kundalini spirit operating. I did not get caught up in the Todd Bently) Lakeland “revival” because I so clearly saw through the eyes of the spirit how bizarre it all was. I remember sitting in a church meeting once and the visiting revival speaker saying “When I say this word..”it” will break out.” I ran out of there and quite honestly said in my heart “Oh no..not this **** again.” I am desperate for God’s truth and only His truth. I am tired of the false. Im tired of dead religion and systems of churchianity that are all about the money and promoting young pastors agendas & building mega churches. Pastor Chambers..I have been out of “church” for 2 yrs.,but faithfully attend a small bible study where we study God’s word line upon line and cry out for His truth. There are MANY believers on the “outside” now. We’re trying to get back to the basics of the word of God. We wish we had a larger fellowship of believers, but “church” has become a place where the real Jesus is mixed in with all kinds of other “stuff” .

  5. Pastor Chambers, wonderful and needful article! It has been on my heart for a long time that we need revival in the church. The church can’t evangelize the world until she cleans up her own act. She is impotent because of sin, compromise and false teaching.

    I recently reread the book, REES HOWELL by Norman Grubb and gleaned much from it again. To be vessels of life changing intercessory prayer means that one’s own life and motives must be pure and holy before the Lord……….in other words, it begins with me if I desire revival.

    I live in Mexico and this week attended a lecture on the Muslim religion and “whirling Durviches. They are the mystical part of the Muslim faith. I seemed to be impressed with the thought that it is the same spirit that has entered the church that is in the Durviches! And then you sent this article about the Kundalini spirit! How that spoke to my heart.

    Thank you for your faithfulness and insightful articles.

    Blessing in Christ to you,

  6. Good morning Pastor Joe, your message is so timely.
    May I ask you to please pray for _________ who is going to India today for a month to sit under a guru. Not good at all. She was initiated in 1975 and has renewed interest since her mother’s death in 2009 who was deeply involved in this cult since late ‘60s until her death. Although given the gospel of Christ, they believe the lie that Jesus was the master for the day he lived in – and in every age there is a living master. Appreciate your prayers for God’s grace and mercy.
    Love in Christ,

  7. I must protect this name

    Dear Brother Chambers,

    I decided to email you instead of taking up your time on the phone.

    As I stated I am on the church board as secretary and feel that the Lord has me there for a reason. Most of the board members go along with what the pastor does but I felt I had to speack up after what happened in the Christmas program. A lady in the church is being allowed to work with the youth in doing what they call signage (mime dressed up) and what is called “flag ministry”. It is not as bad as mime but it is still not good. They do motions to music either with the choir or other songs. I believe that she will eventually take the youth to what I saw on the video you sent if she is not stopped. I told our new pastor of 3 months, who has been in the ministry for 40 years that I wanted to know what our standard is for the methods being used – probably from the Purpose Driven Life concept. He came back at me with harsh words and called me a legalist and judgmental. He preaches truth and stresses faith but undermines his messages with what I call methods to minister, especially to the youth. I have thought about leaving but all the pentecostal churches in our area do the same things we do or worse.

    Please do not use my name on the air. I think my former pastor listens to you now. He saw through some of the things he allowed for years and would not allow chorograph dancing or flags. Even though he came back at me on different occasions, he had respect for me and we do not have any animosity toward each other.

    Pray for me. I feel that the Lord wants me to take a stand in a loving way and His grace has sustained me in very difficult situations.

    Thanks again for your ministry and your uncompromising stand for TRUTH.

    God Bless

  8. Dear Brother Chambers,

    I see this type of worship in churches today. Sorry to say, mostly women within the church are those that shake, etc. and I have always felt that something was amiss. The church that I attend, a small church, is preparing to have its spring revival, but before we do, I plan to show this article to the pastor.

    Brother Chambers keep up the good work and may God’s Holy Spirit continue to guide you.

  9. The truth was never better spoken, Brother Chambers. I grew up in a Pentecostal church. I don’t even recognize the so-called “Church” anymore. However, thank God that He sees the heart and mind of the true church–the Church of the Living God. Your sermon here is a breath of fresh air; and the Church is gasping for air!

  10. My comment is to stay away from Yoga. Western culture has been led to believe it is just “exercise”. Why they do not realize, is that Yoga is a form of Hindu worship. The poses that people “get into” during yoga pays homage to these deities, (demons). You may not be actively worshipping the deity, but it recognizes the pose and structure of the Yoga/Hindu religion and this may open up a door to the spirit world of the occult, without you even knowing it.

  11. Dear Pastor

    Very well written. Wow is the Church under attack, this is most likely our last stand.

    God Bless
