If you've heard of what happened at the Toronto Airport Vineyard (the Vineyard dumped them so now it is the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship); and, if you've heard what happened in Pensacola, Florida at the Brownsville Asembly of God on Father's Day a few years ago; and if you heard what happened in the Alpha Course originator church, Holy Trinity Brompton Anglican Church in London, UK, you already know something about the Thrid Wave revivals.
They are essentially a rehash of of the latter rain theology-philosophy of modern day apostles and prophets; signs and wonders that are NOT mentioned in the Bible, either Old nor New Testaments because "God is doing a new thing."
Sadly, many of these people do not realize that when God tells the Israelites at times that He is doing a new thing, it really is an old thing. It is just new for them.
Hebrews 13:8 says that "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and foever."
So, to go outside what God has ever done (I have never heard historically of God giving people gold teeth for example) might be treading on dangerous ground.
Many of the the revivalists have this mantra:
"Don't question this. It's the Holy Spirit. How do we know? Because we, the anointed ones say so."
In the coming weeks we will find out who it is exactly that follows this "revival;" who these "anointed" ones are and who placed them into their positions; and, discuss if there are apostles and prophets today, and if so, are these ones of the Third Wave the real deal? Or are there other more real ones?
We will also find out the friction and division in the Assemblies of God over this.
Stay tune and hang on to your seats as we examine the........
THIRD WAVE REVIVALS.
