LYING SIGNS AND WONDERS
SUNDAY, APRIL 14, 2019

I know this upsets you, but I would say, Look honestly at the miracles in Scripture, at the signs of the Apostles, and then look at the miracles of today. Why are NONE of them - not a single one - on YouTube? Why can't they make a crooked leg straight, and only heal things that can be credited to positive thinking, mind over matter, and coincidence? There's not a miracle being performed, attached to sound doctrine, that cannot be done by atheists, agnostics, hindus, buddhists, and Christian Scientist! They don't speak in tongues. Tongues is the least gift, and if it isn't present, then none of the other sign gifts are either. No one speaks in other known languages like Acts 2:5-11.

Pentecostalism is built on a lie. It always was, and though it is popular and has swallowed Africa, though Charismatic teaching has engulfed this world and crept in to "Reformed" circles, it is still an error. The miracles are no more real, and the doctrine (Arminianism) is no more true than it was 115 years ago.

I want proof. I hear about these miracles. Someone yesterday talked about a guy raising his wife from the dead, just before he died in the same car accident as punishment from God. This man is a university professor who leads a large christian gathering, but none of this is ever witnessed, except from somebody who heard it from somebody else. Why can no modern healer heal anything impossible that can be verified on the spot? I have a crooked finger. No one can make it straight without touching me. Sure, they can heal a person of stuttering, but they can't heal a person who has never spoken, etc. That is the difference between today's miracles and the authentic ones.

I wouldn't be so adamant, but after you've studied Acts and the real miracles, etc, take a look at the lying signs and wonders that we are warned about [Matt 24:24; 2 Thess 2:7-12; Rev 16:12-14, Rev 13:11-18]. Every time signs and wonders are mentioned in the last of the last days (outside of the signs in the sky when Jesus comes, etc) they are always false, lying signs and wonders, and are always connected with the working of Satan. Paul says plainly:

“The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the working of Satan, with every kind of power, sign, and lying wonder, and with every wicked deception directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. For this reason, God will send them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie, in order that judgment will come upon all who have disbelieved the truth and delighted in wickedness.” [2 Thess 2:9-11]

This is why the lie is so dangerous! People put their trust in, "I spoke in tongues", "my pastor does miracles", "I have a dream", "I saw a visions", etc, instead of simply and purely the word of God and the gospel. They get assurance from a lying wonder, instead of a living Christ, and this is far easier than hearing from God.

We must hear the gospel supernaturally in the power of the Spirit, so that it bears fruit [1 Thess 1:3-5]. It cannot be mental assent; it takes the Spirit to call Him Lord. With this being said, fake miracles are easier assurance than the TRUE miracle of divine revelation. It is easier for me to babble than for God to speak peace to the heart; it is easier to trust myself (what I've experienced and seen) than to trust Him.

Take these things to heart. Calvin, Luther, Spurgeon, Owen, Augustine, and the history of the church have not been wrong on this! (They are not the Scripture, but Scripture says that through the laying on of the Apostle's hands, the Spirit was given [Acts 8:18].) These signs of the Apostles, like the Apostles themselves, are no more [2 Cor 12:12; 1 Cor 15:8; Rev 22:18-19].

This is not a small issue, and many choose to compromise because Pentecostalism is sweeping the world, but it was wrong when it got started, and it is wrong now. It takes grit and determination to stand for the truth. You will be persecuted and called narrow-minded, but the reason Nigeria is in her current evil estate spiritually, is because the Church has slept, and what the early missionaries practiced and preached is no longer here. We cannot help them by withholding the truth, and we don’t help a single person by playing, “Well maybe”, with their false visions. Tell them the truth and stand.

(From a letter to a friend)
