Revival or Baptism in the Holy Spirit?

Posted by appolus on October 15, 2018

“Now see, we try to take that concept of “revival” and we apply it to things that are dead, things that are outside of the Ekklesia – our church buildings, our religious programs, our church services, our membership – and we hope that through “revival” we are going to increase our ministry, enlarge our church, get more people saved, or whatever the goal is. But my point is that the Ekklesia does not need revival. You are trying to raise something from the dead with revival, but the Ekklesia is living.” (Chip Brogden)

What Chip says there is really quite profound. When Paul Washer spoke to the 5000 Baptist youth, I imagine that there would hardly have been an eyebrow raised if he told the crowd they needed revival. Yet he told them to consider the fact that they had never been alive in the first place. When you consider men like Ravenhill who claimed only about 7% of professing Christians in America were actually saved, then rather than revival, we would need the kind of power that Peter spoke with at Pentecost.

Peter spoke and the people were “stabbed in the heart.” They were not revived, they were stabbed in the heart, hearts that were hardened and dead through sin but convicted by the power of the Holy Spirit and life sprung up from death and thousands were saved.

What is there is a desperate need of today in Christendom? The power of the Holy Spirit, the same power that came upon Peter, yet, as we know, almost all of the denominations and the majority of churches throughout the land deny Him His place in their midst. Now, if one wanted to repent, there would be a good place to start. Leaders repenting that they have usurped the Holy Spirit and robbed Jesus of His preeminence.

    Actually, Brother, there really is such a thing as dead Christians. Satan has figured out how to defile Jesus’ body. Satanic Ritual Abuse is how satan does it (or gets people to do it sometimes outright and sometimes via dissociation of personality. We are in the last of the last days! Watch the Keepers on Netflix for a tame version of SRA which powers up the vatican. It has to get very dark before the Morningstar arises in our hearts – but He is coming soon!
