Why doesn’t God speak to us anymore?

I have read this asked in a forum on the web… “Why doesn’t God speak to us anymore?”   The writer continues and says… “In the Old Testament there are verses where God speaks to people and I wish God could speak to me like he did to other people for example Abram. Why is […]

The dirty little secret of Cessationist ministers

by Theodore Wright.   YES! Despite what they tell you, Cessationist ministers DO hear from God when they pray. Do they know when they are preaching they may actually be prophesying in the Spirit?   OH NO! They will NOT want to tell you this if you are a member of their churches. It is […]

Cessationists and Christian Contemporary Worship

by Theodore Wright.   Ask the ones saying there is a problem with Hillsong, Bethel, and Elevation worship music just one question… “What is your opinion regarding the Charismatic movement?”   For all that the critics and heretic hunters say against Contemporary Christian music, this commonly is the real point of criticism they may not […]

Do you seek the Baptism of Fire?

by Theodore Wright.   We have often heard about being baptized with the Holy Ghost or the Holy Spirit. This is often mentioned by Pentecostals and some other charismatics as a second experience which may accompany salvation or may occur later. While we fellowship warmly and freely with Pentecostal believers in Jesus, and have seen […]

Pull the curtain. There He is! GOD!

by Theodore Wright.   Oh, you don’t believe that it can be that easy? Well, IT IS! Even some Christians had that told me this couldn’t be done. Yet they only said this to me because they never sought themselves to pull the curtain. People often do not realize that it is God moving when […]

Hermeneutical wishful thinking

by Theodore Wright. I am not saying that this is my own hermeneutical wishful thinking nor even that I have such. This is something I find devoted Cessationists have. Cessationism is a doctrine stating that spiritual gifts (such as speaking in tongues, prophecy and healing) ceased with the early church. Cessationism says that the Holy […]

My sheep hear My voice

by Theodore Wright.   Jesus said… My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. – John 10:27 (NKJV)   All those place their trusting faith in God solely through His Son Jesus Christ hear the voice of Jesus, whether they know it or not. If they do not hear His […]

For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance

They are? Yes, as the King James Version Bible says. However, understand what this means from the New King James Version Bible… For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. – Romans 11:29 NKJV That means that God doesn’t take them back!     And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some […]

The gift of tongues is not merely known tongues

by Theodore Wright.   For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. – 1 Corinthians 14:2 (KJV)     From several places in this Bible verse we see that there do exist unknown tongues as the […]

My Testimony of Working with Charismatic Catholics

By Bill Scudder, Dayton Ohio USA   I would like to say first of all that I am not a Cessationist. I do not believe the Gifts of the Holy Spirit ceased with the New Testament Apostles. They are available to the Church of God today. For those who do not believe the above, you […]
