Tongues & Interpretation of Tongues

In this article I'm examining the two Manifestation Gifts of all the Charismatic Giftings that have been at the center of controversy for centuries in the Church at-large — the matter of what the King James Version renders as "diversities of tongues" and the Interpretation of Tongues. “And God has APPOINTED in the church . . . various kinds of tongues” (1 Cor. 12:28, NASB). "And God hath SET . . . in the church . . . diversities of tongues" (1 Cor. 12:28, KJV). ...

Tongues—The Initial Evidence of The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

In this article, adapted from my book, DUNAMIS! Power From On High, we will examine the Biblical initial evidence that someone has received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, which is the gift of tongues, that is, a supernatural enablement to speak in languages that the speaker has never learned. This is referred to in the Bible as unknown tongues. It is called unknown tongues, again, because the languages, or tongues (glossa, Gr.) the Spirit-Baptized believer speaks are u...

The Great Commission or Omission?

For years, during my itinerant ministry, when I spoke in churches on the topic of deliverance, I would commence my message by reading aloud Mark 16:15-19. Then, I would ask the congregation to raise their hand if they considered themselves a believer. Invariably, one hand per person in attendance would go up, regardless the size of the congregation. Then I would ask of those who raised their hand, those who had cast out any demons today to raise their hand. No hands woul...

For Christians to claim Christians cannot have demons simply because they are Born Again is like saying their car cannot break down simply because they are Born Again, or even sillier, that they don't have to fill their gas tank or change the oil or refill the oil if it is low because they are Born Again, or that they are free from the Law of Gravity because they are a Born Again Christian.

Recovering from Spiritual Abuse

Multitudes of sincere and trusting believers are caught in the virtually invisible web of religious captivation in the churches they attend, the ministries they are under, and the networks they are aligned with...and don't know it! These faithful followers of Christ are unaware victims of spiritual abuse, psychological enslavement, and exploitation perpetrated under the heavy-hand of hyper-authoritarianism. That is to say, the leadership of the church-group of which the...

Tongues & Interpretation of Tongues

To properly understand this whole matter of “various kinds of tongues,” as the New American Standard Bible renders it, requires to first understand the matter of tongues is not a humanly-invented phenomenon, but as the above passage brings out, it was God’s idea and doing to appoint or set in the ekklesia or Church Jesus is building different “kinds of tongues.” The terms “set” and “appointed” both connote permanence. Everyone who has ever worked with cement knows well what the word “set” means, and that once the mixture is set it is permanent and immutable. So, this use by the Holy Spirit of these terms in this passage establishes that fact that God has ordained that various kinds of tongues should be operating in the assemblies of the Church for as long as the Church exists. Nowhere does Scripture inform us that God has rescinded the appointment of the gift of various forms of tongues in the Church, though many have sought to have them “impeached” or “abrogated” from the Church without any Biblical justification for doing so. Cessationists must resort to extra-biblical theorization to support their unproven assertions, which are based virtually exclusively and entirely upon past Church history, which is the record of what the Church did vis-à-vis what God ordained and prescribed in His Word for the Church to do. The chasm between the two is vast!

Tongues—The Initial Evidence of The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

From the preponderance of Scriptural record, it is extremely, and in fact, unimpeachably safe, to conclude that the Biblical pattern of the initial sign or indicator that a person has received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues. Certainly, it’s safer to say it is, than that it’s not.

The Great Commission or Omission?

It’s long past time for the Body of Christ to “grow up in all aspects into Him, who is the Head, even Christ” (Eph. 4:15) spiritually maturing to “a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ” (Eph. 4:13), and FORCE the devil to FLEE—from individual believers and the collective Church! If the Church Jesus is building is to advance further in this last hour and see “the Kingdom come,” it must begin to embrace and comply with the first tenet of the Great Commission and begin to cast out demons!

Charismatic Captivation -- Authoritarian Abuse & Psychological Enslavement in Neo-Pentecostal Churches, by Dr. Steven Lambert -- Available at: www.charismatic-captivation.com

Recovering from Spiritual Abuse

Authoritarian abuse (aka, “spiritual abuse”) is one of the most widespread and troubling problems facing the Church today. Indeed, the truth is that ecclesiastical enslavement and exploitation is pandemic in many sectors of 21st Century Christendom, though those churches and ministries employing it go to great lengths to disguise and conceal it. What makes the ubiquitous problem even more insidious is that many of the perpetrators and propagators of these spiritually repressive teachings and techniques are respected, and in some cases revered, spiritual leaders. Moreover these autocratic systems of religious hegemony are being imposed in church-groups espousing orthodox Christian beliefs, whose membership is comprised of a cross section of average Americans—individuals and families—of every race, education level, station, status, and vocation, rather than radical, fringe religious sects and cults as many uninformed people would suppose.

Easter or Resurrection Sunday?

The annual religious observance known in Christendom as “Easter Sunday” once again is upon us. This month the vast majority of Christendom will celebrate what most of organized Christianity now considers the highest Holy Day on the religious calendar. It has been celebrated now for centuries since the Church Council at Nicaea in 325 A.D. set the first Sunday following the first full moon after the vernal equinox as “Easter Sunday.” At first glance, that premise may seem innocuous…until it is understood that it was the early “Universal Church’s” adoption of the pagan day of veneration of the Babylonian goddess Ostara (alternately spelled “Eostre”, aka, Ishtar), the entire system of which is squarely centered in Babylonian pagan astrology, the anti-God religious system devised by Satan himself to redirect humanity’s worship of God to himself.

Did Jesus Command Ministers to Minister Without Compensation or Support?

So, the notion that ministers are supposed to work for free and without financial compensation is a complete and completely ridiculous lie! It’s nothing but a demonically-inspired MYTH! As I say, there’s a myth that the cow jumped over the moon, do you believe that too?! STOP BELIEVING MYTHS AND LIES AND AGREEING WITH THE DEVIL! It’s time to grow up, church; myths are for infants! Are you an infant? It’s time to get over it; get off it; and get on with giving, and reaping the abundant harvest God promises to the cheerful givers who operate the natural and spiritual law of sowing and reaping!

A Lesson From Abraham

Kingdom things are concepts originating in the mind of God; He is their originator, author, inventor, “conceiver,” the “artist,” the architect, the builder. Kingdom things are never conceived in the mind of men, but only in the mind of God. Then God—the master architect and builder—REVEALS them to the mind of men who receive them as a revelation from God. God is the Builder as well as the Architect of Kingdom things, but He never by-passes His Church; whatever He does on Earth, He reveals and “transfers” to men for the building or manifestation in the natural of the pattern delineated on the Spiritual blueprint.

Is The Devil Really Defeated? Well, Yes and No!

To many people, including many who claim to be Christians or believers in Christ, the matter of the existence and operations of the devil on earth are either basically an unknown or a spiritual conundrum. That is understandable, given the fact that unbiblical or in some cases, antibiblical, preaching and teaching on the matter is ubiquitous, even in the context of self-purported Christian churches. The central theory of that biblically-incorrect teaching to varying degrees is the somewhat misleading assertion: “Jesus defeated the devil on the Cross of Calvary.” While that statement and the set of teachings it represents bears some truth, it nevertheless is not “the whole truth and nothing but the truth!” Rather, it is actually partial truth.

A Fatherless Nation

America has become a fatherless nation. A fatherless nation producing an alarmingly high and ever-growing number of illegitimate children—i.e., born out of wedlock, or to unmarried biological parents—many of whom were/are abandoned by one or both parents to become wards of the state, or given up for adoption by biologically-unrelated adoptive-parents or government-paid foster-parents. More and more of those adoptive/foster-parents now are homosexual cohabitants, despite the fact that homosexuality is the ultimate affront to fatherhood and enmity against God the Father.

The Laudable Legacy of MLK Jr. & CRM

From a theological perspective, it is vital to understand that while the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement (CRM) he spearheaded for more than a decade is highly laudable for the voluminous victories obtained with respect to manifold social inequities and injustices, if the integrity of the legacy is to be preserved, it must be bifurcated and distinguished from the spiritual appurtenances historically associated with it.

America, You Were Warned 50 Years Ago! (Pt 3)

In the previous two editions of this three-part series I asserted, as the title suggests, that America was clearly warned 50 years ago this year on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives about the Marxist agenda that has been systematically infused into the fabric, foundation, and functions of the nation by the adherents of communism in America. That warning came from a courageous Florida Congressman who read into the record 45 goals of the communists operating covertly toward the socialization our nation that were published in a small Deland, Florida newspaper. In and 2 of this series, I delineated 30 of 45 goals of the then underground communist movement the Congressman laid out in his speech. In this edition, I want to enumerate the remaining 15 of those goals (prefaced by the preamble of the official record), followed by additional commentary of my own regarding a related prophetic message I delivered to a rather shocked and disbelieving audience more than two decades ago.

America, You Were Warned 50 Years Ago! (Part 2)

Most Americans have been totally oblivious to the fact that for more than a century going back into the mid-1800s a sophisticated and highly-systematized all-out and very successful battle has been transpiring for the hearts and minds of America’s children. Though it is guerilla warfare that has been engaged, the battle has been conducted right under Americans’ collective noses, with not only their moral support but their colossal financial support, from both massive private contributions and government funding. Moreover, the battlefield on which this extended and expensive war has been waged is the American public education system.

America, You Were Warned 50 Years Ago!

Unfortunately, the irrefutable fact is that the covert, systematic secularization and socialization of America has been transpiring in earnest right under our proverbial noses since the latter part of the 19th Century. Such a statement as the final sentence of the above quote may sound to some who are unversed concerning said communization of America radical and hyperbolic, but it is not. And, if it rubs the proverbial cat the wrong way, the cat needs to turn around, and consider the statement a wake-up call! The majority of Americans are used to living mentally insulated lives, with their heads buried in the sand, skipping along through a fantasy rose garden, with their minds sashaying about in the clouds, tip-toeing through the tulips strumming a yuke like the late Tiny Tim, singing “Que sera, sera; whatever will be, will be!” But, they need to wake up to the fact that America, for all intents and purposes, is now thoroughly communized.

The United States of Communist America?

Unfortunately, the irrefutable fact is that the covert, systematic secularization and socialization of America has been transpiring in earnest right under our proverbial noses since the latter part of the 19th Century. With the final coup de gras of ascension of the Marxism-incarnate, political “Manchurian Candidate” who suddenly and mysteriously appeared out of nowhere in Melchizedek-like fashion, having no verifiable pre-21st Century past, into the highest office of our land, the communistic goal of the “totalitarianization” of America is finally fait accompli! Having seized the reins of power, the comrades now controlling the real “Red Party” (Democrats) have initiated their evil agenda of the socialization of every facet of American society, the dismantling of the substructure and infrastructure of our republican form of government, and the morphing of the nation into a Marxist nanny state controlled by an elite Marxist aristocracy comprising an oligarchic government intent on Pharaoh-esque domination, subordination, and enslavement of the citizenry.
