Charismatic Want To Be
By Dr. James. A McBean D.Th., MCC
F or every genuine movement or gifts that God has given to the church. Satan manages to create a fake for it. In fact, if a thing is fake, there is a genuine one someplace. Many Christians do not know that there is a fake movement of the spirit.
There are two kinds of Charismatic groups. There is the genuine Charismatic group, which has love and compassion, for other believers and for lost souls. In addition, there is another that fakes to be Charismatic, which is voodoo and witchery of the demonic proportion camouflage under the banner of Christianity.
If you cannot tell them apart, leave Charismatic alone until you know how to know them. That is all I am trying to say. Many people start to hear voices, after they got the tongues. Some wives became rebellious after they got the tongues. Some get sickly and cannot seem to find out what is wrong with them. Do not let every preacher lay hands on you. Do not go about looking for preachers to fill you with the Holy Spirit. God will do that. In fact, you and I already got the Holy Spirit working in our lives. The Holy Spirit is already given to the body of Christ the church here on earth. All who embrace Jesus as their lord is brought into the Holy Ghost.
It is not he comes into us but we go into him contrary to how it seems in scriptures. This is not children’s game. I have seen many people over the period of some thirty-six years got possess with Satan spirit. We think it was the Holy Ghost at the time. As time goes by, we watch them waste out and drain out, and became worst than what they were before they were so-call-save and filled. Everybody wants to fall over. The Holy Spirit comes to make you stand up, but self displaying is not of God.
Acts 17:28 (KJV) For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO REMAIN WITH THE CHURCH THAT YOU GOT SAVE IN!
I was converted to Christianity, when I was only nineteen years old. I got converts in the Charismatic circle. Was ordained there and serve there for more than thirty six years. All that time I keep wondering, why these people exercise the gifts of the spirit while show no fruit of the spirit. Where is the love? Where is the empathy that supposes to balance out the gifts that we profess to have. In one of our fund-raising drive. We asked the people to bring rice and other raw food stuff, and money. We planned to cook the food and sold it back to the same people along with their friends. When everything was over, I asked the members to give the leftover food back to the people. They put the left over in the refrigerator and keep it there until it spoiled.
In church one night, we had one night of so call Holy Ghost movement. On our way from church, in the church van, the whole thing turns out into one big gossip. All the tongue’s talkers were only gossip mongers. On coming to the Unites States, I found the Charismatic here even more shocking. The blacks’ Charismatic hates the whites Charismatic and the whites’ Charismatic hates the blacks. Black pastors do not invite the white pastors and the white pastors do not invite the black pastors. Each thinks the other is not holy and educated enough for their pulpits. In some white churches a black never sure as pastor, through the history of that church.
I found many Baptists members are yearning and longing to imitate the Charismatic movement, but they do not know what they are trying to jump into. Some women in the Charismatic movement. The very night they were filled with what we call the spirit. They got so holy that their husband stops getting any of the bed acts.
Behind all that singing, and tongues talking, there is a mountain of backbiting, back stabbing and deformation of character going on. My warning to all Charismatic want to be, if you were not call called there, stays where you were call to serve. Now! I did not say that save people were not in the charismatic group. And I did not say that they are all false. If some wise guys want to read all that into my article, go ahead. Another problem in the Charismatic is
Bad prophecies! In one of our church, everybody in the church pretends to be a prophet. At each Holy Communion service, the people got scared of taking the communion after the pastor finish preaching his Holy Communion sermon. The people throw the grape juice under the benches that they were sitting on. Not one of the prophets among us knows that this was taking place.
To Baptist believers: You already have the fullness of the spirit. If God wants to give you something more, he will give you.
Sometime Only Jesus Can Help Us
Acts 4:12 (KJV)Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Romans 5:6 (KJV) For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:7 (KJV) For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. Romans 5:8 (KJV) But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:9 (KJV) Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. Romans 5:10 (KJV) For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. Romans 5:11 (KJV) And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
Matthew 6:33-AV But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Isaiah 55:6-AV Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Isaiah 55:7-AV Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
