WHOSE CHURCH IS IT ANYWAY?

THE POST APOSTOLIC CHURCH

Again I acknowledge that much of the material that follows is drawn from the excellent publication by Eddie L. Hyatt, 2000 Years of Charismatic Christianity. For specific references to the writings quoted, please refer to that publication.

We now proceed to the 20th century which, as we all know, was noted for outpourings of the Holy Spirit. Surely all would now be transformed by the Spirit and the bride church produced. Of course, we now know the reality, where there has been greater splits and divisions than ever before. God weeps!

20th CENTURY DEVELOPMENTS

The Day of the Lord

28 “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. 29 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. (Joel 2:28-9)


THE HEALING REVIVAL

WILLIAM BRANHAM (1909-1965)

Branham is the widely recognised person God used to initiate the post World War 2 Healing Revival.

A controversial figure, particularly in his later life, Branham was brought up in difficult circumstances in a nominal Roman Catholic family. His father was a both a logger and an alcoholic.

The call of God was on him from an early age. He said that in his early childhood, while walking home from getting water from the creek, he heard the voice of the Angel of the Lord who told him.....

'never to drink, smoke or defile his body, for there would be a work for him when he got older'.

Leaving home at 19, he worked on a ranch in Arizona and had a short career as a boxer. After his conversion he became a Baptist pastor. He was a humble man with a simple faith in the God of the Bible. On May 7 1946, after a time of prayer, he recorded an angel appearing and saying to him.....

Fear not. I am sent from the presence of Almighty God to tell you that your peculiar life and your misunderstood ways have been to indicate that God has sent you to take a gift of divine healing to the people of the world. If you will be sincere, and can get the people to believe you, nothing shall stand before your prayer, not even cancer.

Branham immediately launched into successful evangelistic and healing ministry, but with limited exposure. This changed when he was introduced to Gordon Lindsay, who was well known in Pentecostal circles. He agreed to become his campaign manager, soon thrusting Branham into international prominence.

Branham worked powerfully in the word of knowledge, being able to reveal minute details of the person’s life to whom he was ministering. Through the gift of healing, he was able to detect and diagnose diseases through pulsations in his left hand occurring when he held the sick persons left hand.

Walter Hollenweger, is a Swiss theologian and author, and recognized as an expert on worldwide Pentecostalism, interpreted for Branham on several occasions, saying in his famous book, 'The Pentecostals' .....

The author, who knew Branham personally and interpreted for him in Zurich, is not aware of any case in which he was mistaken in the often detailed statements he made. It was characteristic of Branham's kind-heartedness that he gave certain personal revelations to those who were seeking healing in a whisper, so that they could not be picked up by the microphone and revealed to the spectators.

Sadly, as time went by Branham got more involved in theology, where his radical views embroiled him in controversy, and his popularity waned. (This serves as a warning to us all!) A number of his views are now becoming more commonly accepted. For example, immersion baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and the abolition of organized religion.

He retained a large number of followers who regarded him as the prophet of the 'Bride of Christ'. They bestowed on him godlike attributes, and I suspect, misinterpreted his words in ways they were not intended. However Branham did little to correct them and this led to him and his followers being rejected by the general Christian community.

He died in a car accident on 24 December 1965, at the age of 56.

His legacy though, survives to this day.

So we can continue to say.....

THE TRUE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS ARE ONES WHO ARE OBEDIENT TO THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THEIR LIVES.

FROM THE WORD

THE WORDS OF JESUS continued

The Lord has asked me to compile a publication of the words Jesus spoke, as recorded in the New Testament in chronological order.

Of course, it is not a Bible substitute! I Hope you find it helpful too, in your walk with Jesus.

Sickness and Death of Lazarus of Bethany (John 11:1-16)
Jesus delays, then returns to Judea, to the dismay of the disciples.

“Lord, your close friend is sick.” When Jesus heard the news he said, “The end result of this sickness will not be death. Through this God’s glory will be revealed so that the Son of God may be glorified.”
“Aren’t there twelve hours in a day?” “If you walk during the day you don’t stumble because you can see where you’re going by the light of this world. But if you walk during the night you stumble because you have no light.” After telling them this, he said, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I’m going to go there and wake him up!”
“Lazarus is dead. For your sake I’m glad I wasn’t there, because now you will be able to trust in me. Let’s go and see him.”

Jesus Comforts Mary and Martha (John 11:17-37)
The sisters of Lazarus, after Lazarus had been in the tomb for four days.

“Your brother will rise again.”

‘In the resurrection’, they replied.

“I am the resurrection and the life. Those who trust in me will live, even though they die. All who live in me and trust in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

Upon arriving in the village.

“Where have you laid him?”

Jesus Raises Lazarus (John 11:38-44)
From the dead.

“Remove the stone,”
“Didn’t I tell you that if you trusted me you would see God’s glory?”
“Father, thank you for listening to me. I know you always listen to me. I said this because of the crowd standing here so that they will believe that you sent me.”
“Lazarus, come out!”
“Unbind him and set him free,”

LAUGHING AT OURSELVES

***Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused***

*** Those who can't laugh at themselves leave the job to others. ***


43. PROPHETIC? A TRUE STORY
My appointment as pastor coincided with the church's appeal for aid for victims of a hurricane.

Unfortunately, on my first Sunday in the parish, the centre page of the church bulletin was accidentally omitted. So members of the congregation read from the bottom of the second page to the top of the last page: "Welcome to the Rev. Andrew Jensen and his family... the worst disaster to hit the area in this century. The full extent of the tragedy is not yet known." --RD

42. HEALTHY LESSONS?
Two fellows died at ripe old ages and went on to Heaven. It was, of course, the most beautiful, wonderful place imaginable.

One of them, eyes misting with tears, remarked to the other, "Isn't this marvelous?"

His friend replied. "Yes! And to think we could have gotten here so much sooner if we hadn't eaten all that oat bran!"

41. WHOSE FUNERAL?
The old man had died. A wonderful funeral was in progress and the country preacher talked at length of the good traits of the deceased, what an honest man he was, and what a loving husband and kind father he was.

Finally, the widow leaned over and whispered to one of her children,

"Go up there and take a look in the coffin and see if that's your pa in there."

IF ONLY I'D THOUGHT OF IT!

"""OTHER'S SAYINGS TO ENLIGHTEN, AMUSE, OR BEMUSE"""

1] Prayer is not a “spare wheel” that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a “steering wheel” that directs the right path throughout.

2] So a Car’s Wind Shield is so large & the Rear view Mirror is so small ? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, Look Ahead and Move on.

3] Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.

4] All things in life are temporary. If going well, enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong, don’t worry, they can’t last long either.

5] Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamond! If you get a Diamond, don’t forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of Gold!

6] Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, “Relax, sweetheart, it’s just a bend, not the end!

7] When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn’t solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.

8] A blind person asked God : “Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?” He replied: “Yes, losing your vision!”

9] When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them, and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.

10] WORRYING does not take away tomorrow’s TROUBLES, it takes away today’s PEACE.

LIFE'S A LAUGH

26. HOW WE DRIVE ROUND HERE
My brother, on vacation in Malta, was appalled by the island's chaotic traffic, and asked the hotel keeper why it was so disorderly.

"In some countries they drive on the right, in others on the left," explained the hotelier. "Here we drive in the shade."

27. IN CONTROL?
The checkout line at the hardware store was getting longer and longer as the clerk laboured to get the new cash register to co-operate. At one point she wailed, "Oh no, NOW what do I do? It just rang up sixty-four thousand, five hundred seventy-four dollars in sales tax on a ten-dollar sale!"

Surprisingly, the customers in front of me didn't seem too upset by the delay. Some even chuckled sympathetically. It wasn't until I got near the front of the line that I saw the neatly hand-lettered sign in front of the register: We are currently doing battle with our new computer for control of the store - We appreciate your patience!

28. HOW FAST?
Because I was processing my first accident report at the transport company where I worked, I was being particularly attentive. The driver had hit a deer on the highway, and the result was a severely damaged hood and fender.

My serious mood was broken, however, when I reached the section of the report that asked, "Speed of other vehicle?"

The driver had put: "Full Gallop."

29. PROBLEMS?
My wife, a flight attendant for a major airline, watched one day as a passenger with overloaded bags tried to stuff his belongings into the overhead bin of the plane. Finally, she informed him that he would have to check the oversized luggage.

"When I fly other airlines," he said irritably, "I don't have this problem."

My wife smiled and replied, "When you fly other airlines, I don't have this problem either."

Many more life laughs here....

Can Christianity in the West Endure?

By Ken Connor, CP Contributor

May 28, 2014|7:58 am

This week I write upon returning from a nine-day trip with friends to England, where much of my visit centered on an examination the English Reformation. I was fortunate to be exposed to the lessons of history through two groups, Christian Heritage Cambridge and its spinoff, Christian Heritage London. These groups focus on reminding Britons and their guests of the influence of Christianity on Western civilization and inspiring and equipping Christians to demonstrate the reasonableness and transforming power of their faith. Since my wife and I worship in an Anglican Church here in the States, I was particularly interested to learn more about the history of our "mother church," the Church of England. What I found was an incredibly rich history that testifies to the breadth and depth of Christian influence upon the British Isles and upon western civilization as a whole.

We spent most of our time exploring Cambridge, Oxford and London, where Christianity's influence and impact is abundantly evident. Cambridge and Oxford are homes to centers of learning with names like Jesus College, Christ's College, Emmanuel College, Magdalene College, All Souls College, and Corpus Christi College. These colleges were inspired by the Christian notion that since a rational being created the universe, it would be worthwhile to investigate the principles underlying its order. Sir Isaac Newton's life and career is a testament to the power of this belief. A devout but unorthodox Christian, Newton studied at Trinity College in Cambridge and became the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge. A renowned physicist and mathematician, he formulated the laws of motion and universal gravitation and put to rest the mistaken notion that the earth was the center of the universe.

Then there are the churches and cathedrals that dominate the landscape. The most prominent of those houses of worship is St. Paul's Cathedral, the architectural masterpiece of Sir Christopher Wren, which sits atop London's highest point, Ludgate Hill. It was designed to glorify God and to draw the gaze of worshippers to the Transcendent. St. Paul's is to London as St. Peter's Basilica is to Rome. Recognizing its central importance in English History, Hitler sought, and failed, to bomb it into powder during World War II. In so doing, he only reinforced the will of Britons to resist the Nazi menace.

Perhaps the highlight of our trip was a visit to Ridley Hall, a seminary of The Church of England in Cambridge, where we enjoyed lectures by author and social commentator, Dr. Os Guiness and commentary by Professor Greg Jesson, Director of the Center for Ethics and Public Life at Luther College in Iowa. Guiness and Jesson discussed with the students how pastors could be more effective in communicating the Gospel in a postmodern world that has largely rejected Christianity.

Sadly, despite its rich Christian heritage, England and its flagship universities have embraced the reigning culture of secularism and with it its handmaidens, materialism and consumerism. If you doubt that, all you need to do spend some time in the Mayfair District in London, which is populated with Rolls Royce, Bentley, Ferrari and other high-end automobile dealers. Or stop into Holland and Holland gunmakers and cradle a shotgun that sells for $1.5 million dollars. Or if your tastes run slightly less expensive, spend a little time in Harrods or perhaps Selfridges, which contains a sculpture of a couple of hippos humping in the shoe department and which runs footage on its animated store calendar of a fashion show for gays, lesbians, and transgendered folk. Suffice it to say that England has come a long way from the Christian heritage that made it the center of the Western world and produced world leaders like Elizabeth I, Winston Churchill, and Margaret Thatcher.

As I flew out of Heathrow Airport en route for home, I could not help but reflect on the story of Nicholas Ridley and Hugh Latimer, Englishmen who were martyred together for their Christian faith. Dr. Ridley, a Cambridge grad, is the person for whom Ridley Hall is named and was a leader of the English Reformation. In better days, Ridley served as a chaplain to King Henry VIII and as Bishop of London. He was a leader of the Church of England and participated in the compilation of The Book of Common Prayer. Latimer had matriculated at the University of Cambridge at age 14 and served as the Bishop of Worcester. Both were deemed to be enemies of Rome when they refused to recant of their Protestant faith. Consequently, when the Catholic queen, Mary, ascended to the throne, Ridley and Latimer found themselves sentenced to die a heretic's death. "Bloody Mary" was determined to discourage others in the realm from embracing the Protestant heresy by making an example of the pair.

Because being burned at the stake is a horrific way to die, Ridley's brother tied a bag of gunpowder around each of their necks to hasten their demise. The gunpowder necklaces didn't work, but nonetheless Ridley and Latimer showed great courage. John Fox, in his famous Book of Martyrs describes the scene:

"A lighted fagot was now laid at Dr. Ridley's feet, which caused Mr. Latimer to say: 'Be of good cheer, Ridley; and play the man. We shall this day, by God's grace, light up such a candle in England as I trust will never be put out. When Dr. Ridley saw the fire flaming up towards him, he cried with a wonderful loud voice, 'Lord, Lord receive my spirit.' Master Latimer, crying as vehemently on the other side, 'O Father of heaven, receive my soul!' received the flame as it were embracing of it. After that he had stoked his face with his hands, and as it were, bathed them a little in the fire, he soon died (as it appeareth with very little pain or none."

Ridley was not so fortunate. He died much more slowly. It took him 2 1/2 hours before he succumbed to the flames. The green wood used for the fire initially burned only his lower body and he was heard to cry over and over, "Lord have mercy, I cannot burn. Let the fire come unto me, I cannot burn."

Sadly, the story of Ridley and Latimer was repeated over and over as Bloody Mary ordered the executions of hundreds of Protestants. In doing so, she only reinforced the resolve of the Protestant movement in England, proving the truth of Turtullian's observation that "The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church."

Fortunately, in the intervening time persecutions of Christians in England abated and relations between Protestants and Catholics have improved dramatically. Religious tolerance in England and the West is the norm, although there is increasing tension between the secular movement and the dwindling Christian community. Still, however, there is no persecution in the West akin to that of Mary's time. As I flew back over the Atlantic, I could not help but wonder if this lack of trial accounts for the flaccid nature of the faith that characterizes much of Christianity, including my own. Are there Ridley's and Latimers in the established church that would undergo such persecution for their faith? How many Christians today would be willing to die in the name of Jesus Christ? One name outside the West immediately comes to mind. Sudanese wife and mother Meriam Yehya Ibrahim has been sentenced to death by a Muslim court for refusing to renounce her Christian faith and for marrying a Christian man. The severity of her sentence has prompted an international outcry, and illustrates the persecution still endured by many Christians around the world for whom the terrifying spectre of Bloody Mary is still alive and well, only clothed in the garb of radical Islamic clerics and murderous jihadis.

For Christians lucky enough to live in the free West, we have in large part become complacent and apathetic. Our embrace of relativism and our addiction to material things, coupled with our self-obsession, has dulled our sense of the Transcendent and diminished our faith. We take our freedom and our God for granted. What will it take to rekindle the vision of Christian martyrs past? Would even the rise of a modern day Bloody Mary be enough to shake us from our stupor, or have we reached that fatal point where perpetual diversion and comfort are more important to us than truth? If this is the case, then the Christian heritage preserved in the cathedrals, monuments, and universities of England and Europe may be all that will endure of Christianity in the West.

Ken Connor is the Chairman of the Center for a Just Society in Washington, DC, the former President of the Family Research Council, and a nationally recognized trial lawyer.

WAXING LYRICAL

This poem arose out of the unexpected, untimely death of a very good friend's daughter. Why God, why!

But still, life continues on for us who are left, until our turn comes to meet our maker.

GONE!

Life's short.
Death's caught.
Comes to all.
Small and tall.

It's good to grieve one who did leave,
But life goes on, loved one gone.
How can we cope - sit round and mope?
From dust to dust, in God we trust.

He seems far away,
As we try to pray!
"Where are you now Lord!
You've broken the cord!"

"I am still here for you, my child,
Know that, with Me, you're wild.
But death, it will ever be,
Until earth, is sin free.

Look up, look up, my son,
Into my arms, do now run,
I am always here for you,
Believe it - it is true.

I so understand your sorrow,
As in My path you do follow.
Gave my Son to die for you,
Grief was in My heart, too.

My ways are different to yours,
Yes, mine is a greater cause.
But with death comes eternal life,
No more worry, no more strife...
When your life you do put in my hand,
With me, for eternity, will you stand.

In Jesus now, you must surely rest,
It's through Him, you pass the test.

Come, my friend, rest in my embrace,
Yes, I am with you, in life's race.
One day too, you will reach the finishing line,
I'll meet you there - your hand clasped in mine."

A DAVID MUSING

Sadly, the technology let us down last week, and the Pakistan service had to go on without me. Will try again next week.

Technology is providing a further challenge this week as we strive to get on top of both the system and the volume of work required to get an initial 6-700 items up on our new website before we launch it. Computers are unforgiving beasts, in that if you don't get things 100% right, they work out 100% wrong! Patience and attention to detail are required in great quantities.

We are very blessed that Jesus does not take the same attitude towards us! When we make mistakes we can repent of them. However, as we can see from these quotes from men of God from some time ago, it is God's desire that we live a life of obedience to Him.....

"Have you noticed how much praying for revival has been going on of late - and how little revival has resulted? I believe the problem is that we have been trying to substitute praying for obeying, and it simply will not work. To pray for revival while ignoring the plain precept laid down in Scripture is to waste a lot of words and get nothing for our trouble. Prayer will become effective when we stop using it as a substitute for obedience." - A.W. Tozer

"Revival is a renewed conviction of sin and repentance, followed by an intense desire to live in obedience to God. It is giving up one's will to God in deep humility." ~ Charles Finney.


So until next week.....

MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOU BLESS GOD
