Former Brownsville Revival leader John Kilpatrick says the blind are seeing, the lame walking and the deaf hearing at what he believes may become another long-running revival.
Since mid-August, he said, thousands have been flocking to revival services being held four nights a week at the convention center in Mobile, Ala., where Kilpatrick now leads Church of His Presence.
Kilpatrick said a spiritual outpouring began July 23 during an annual church conference. Visiting British evangelist Nathan Morris preached, and "we basically had another Father's Day," Kilpatrick said, referring to the day in 1995 when a five-year revival broke out at his former church, Brownsville Assembly of God in Pensacola, Fla.
"It was the same kind of outpouring," he said of what is being called the Bay of the Holy Spirit Revival, a reference to its location near Mobile Bay. "It was spontaneous; it was totally...

John Yurich USA So, Why in the world would you refuse to see and acknowledge that one who continues in knowing, willfull, ongoing, unrepentant disobedience to what Jesus Christ Himself taught, to what the Holy Spirit teaches in the Bible ......
HAS NOT RECEIVED JESUS CHRIST AS PERSONAL SAVIOR AT ALL?
John Yurich USA wrote: they have to leave the Catholic Church
"The present day R. C. Church that has officially ratified the Council of Trent continues to curse all who do not hold that her Mass is indeed a propitiatory sacrifice. What she presently ratifies is the following, "If anyone says that the sacrifice of the mass is one only of praise and thanksgiving; or that it is a mere commemoration of the sacrifice consummated on the cross but not a propitiatory one; or that it profits him only who receives, and ought not to be offered for the living and the dead, for sins, punishments, satisfactions, and other necessities, let him be anathema." _____
The clarity of Christâ€™s command stands diametrically opposed to such teaching. Christâ€™s words, "Take and eat", were addressed not to His Father in heaven but rather to the apostles. He did not command them to "offer and propitiate". Rather, such an offering was His own unique office as the one Mediator." (Richard Bennett)

Yes, hiding the RC in here does not give it any more credibility. Lets just deal with the Romies first.
The early church in Acts was called "The Way". Not until Acts13, in Antioch are the referred to as "Christians". None of these names "saved" otherwise the name would not have changed. Church names are not for God, they are short form labels for us to identify the beliefs and practices of a group.
Romie is a short form way of saying that: you believe in being saved by your works, praying to Saints, confessing sins to priest, Purgatory, bread and wine actual Body And Blood, Baptism imparts salvation, Mary as sinless and co-redemptress with Christ, etc..
Church membership encompass the beliefs and practice of that church. If those beliefs and practices are what imparts salvation, then just any competing "church name" will not suffice
John Yurich USA wrote: If church membership is totally superfluous to salvation then why do you believe that when someone becomes Born Again that they have to leave the Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodox Church and Mainline Protestant Churches and unite with a Fundamentalist Protestant Church or else they are not really saved? When everybody stands before Jesus after they pass away the subject of church membership will not enter the equation as to who will be permitted to enter the Gates Of Paradise. The only thing that Jesus will require for entrance into Heaven is that He was received as Personal Savior.
Is obedience after conversion superfluous?
Would you sleep with a harlot after conversion? Then the spiritual equivalent, if you know anything about your Bible, which I seriously doubt, is to worship with idolators and false teachers!!

Luke 3 7 He therefore began saying to the multitudes who were going out to be baptized by him, "You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 "Therefore bring forth fruits in keeping with repentance, and do not begin to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham for our father,' for I say to you that God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham. 9 "And also the axe is already laid at the root of the trees; every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire."---NASB

John Altar calls don't work! They are part of the man-made Liberal philosophy.

Jim Lincoln wrote: Thanks for bringing up that point, Mark, Christians never need revival.
Oh yes Christians constantly need revival. The Bible states that Born Again Christians should constantly be vigilant about confessing any sins that they may have committed to Jesus. And Revival Meetings or as they are also called Altar Calls are utilized for getting the unsaved saved by having them pray to Jesus and ask Him to become their Personal Savior.
If Charisma Magazine is involved in this, we're looking at merchandising and making money off of it. If Charisma has gotten involved, there is going to be a blitz of books (published by Strang's book publishing imprint, can't remember the exact name) and television appearances and so forth. Count on it. The only miracle they're interested in is conjuring up money out of thin air.
