The Holy Spirit does not act apart from the Word of the Father, if there be no Word He has nothing to work with. As the healing revival after WWII began to wane, Kenneth Hagan received a Word from the Lord:
The healing revival as you know it will come to an end. But people will still be healed as they hear the Word of Faith.
It can be difficult to get a person healed by faith because they have a part to play in the matter. I am totally convinced that the Word of Faith movement will usher in the last days healing revival. A Messianic Jew by the name of Dick Reuben predicted the Brownsville outpouring that took place several years ago. The Lord told him that the next great move of the Spirit will be in the Word of Faith camp.
Brother Wigglesworth said this last days revival would be a wave of the gifts of the Spirit. The nine gifts of the Spirit come by faith, we believe for them, we do not earn them through good works. Most denominations do not understand the ministry of the Holy Spirit, they know nothing of His nine gifts. Most of them oppose the gifts, declaring that tongues are of the devil or all the gifts passed away with the last apostle. All of these ignorant statements are excuses for not having faith in God’s Word.
1 Corinthians 12:1 Now concerning spiritual gifts brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
If a man is ignorant concerning the gifts of the Spirit it’s because he chooses not to believe God’s Word. If God showed up and did some miraculous thing they wouldn’t even know who did it. The Catholics still believe that Mary the mother of Jesus stopped the Russian’s from dropping nuclear bombs on the United States. They believe Mary gave them the “rosary” to pray in order to stop Russia. To this day they are making “saints” out of people who supposedly worked miracles hundreds of years ago. I believe the Lord is “shaking” the Catholic church in order to gain a place among them. Kenneth Copeland once said “If you ever got a Catholic saved and filled with the Holy Spirit, he will be a staunch warrior for Christ.”
John 11:47-48 The chief priests and the Pharisees said: what shall we do? For the man Jesus does many miracles. If we let Him be all the people will believe on Him and the Romans will take away our positions.
Religion will lose its place if Jesus is permitted to be presented to the people. A church should be a place where true believers gather to honor and worship the Lord. In general, church has become a place where men are honored for perverting the Gospel. When men are in charge they will make no place for the Spirit of God, He is a drain on their agenda. A lot of folks enjoy having their flesh catered to where there is little demand on their time. We must make room for the Spirit, He will not force His way into our services.
I am a servant of the most high God,
I am submitted to His authority.
I give the devil no place,
so he must flee from me.
Father has given me the Name,
a Name the devil must bow to.
The Name of Jesus has made me free.
He has made me a new creature,
He has put the devil under my authority.
Matthew 9:37 Jesus said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest, that He will send out laborers into His harvest.”
