    Its all about how X revival fits with your interpretation of the Bible, not if its real or not.

    Hi, me again, thanks for the book. I listened to the show today, not sure what to think. I kept hearing you talk about repentance and Salvation through Christ, which is good, but the one thing I just can’t seem to figure out is this “presence of Jesus” thing you guys kept talking about. What exactly is this, a feeling or what? If it’s just something you “feel”, then how do you know without a doubt that it’s the right God? The Bible says that “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God”, not a “feeling” or a “presence”. I still have huge reservations about the Brownsville Revival, but that’s another story.

    Oh, Dr. Brown, what’s your take on the whole Todd Bentley thing now? I heard you take a few digs on some of the phrases used in today’s revivals like “come get some”. Don’t get me wrong, that was good that you said that but in another post, you wouldn’t denounce what Bentley was doing down there in Florida. Just curious to hear what you have to say. Thanks for your time!

    Stanley: Reality is more important than interpretation.

    H Hunter: All I can say is that when the Lord makes His Presence known to me, I know it is Him.
    I’v had the odd experience of evil being present, and I can assure you, you can ‘feel’ the difference in your spirit! It is’nt a goosebumps thing, it’s a spirit ‘knowing’, but it’s deffinitely felt physically aswell, the nearest I can say is that it is an experience of absolute well being, awe, love, peace, beauty, all that is God is ‘felt’ around and upon you.
    Does this help? Ofcourse no one can really explain a feeling……try love for instance!

    Oh really Maz? I agree, but I don’t think you see much reality. You are a young earth creationist. We figured out hundreds of years ago that the world is older than you think, yet you speak of reality and how things are?

    Maz, do you have any Bible verses to back this “feeling” up? Our feelings should come after our knowledge of something in Scripture, not first.

  6. Maz said

    H-Hunter: ”Our feelings should come after our knowledge of something in Scripture, not first.”

    Do you mean we should read it in the Bible before we experience it?

    I have read it in the Bible….on the day of Pentecost…..Acts 2.

  7. Maz said

    Stanley: I see more reality about life because I know the Truth…..Jesus Christ. He’s the Real thing!

    If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his precence whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. 1 John 3:17-20

    How did people in the New Testament era church know when the Holy Spirit was speaking to them? I mean how did believers in 40 or 50 A.D. know anything? I ask that because in the New Testament church the Bible as we know it hadn’t even been compiled yet. By your line of reasoning they could have had no knowledge of God. God does indeed speak through the Holy Spirit, and to deny that is to limit God which is never a good idea. The thing is that no leading/illumination/revelation (whatever term one wishes to use) will be contrary to Scripture, and it’s a matter of orthodoxy that no revelation that we receive now will be on a par with scripture. The faith is more than a matter of the head, it is also of the heart and the will. Making it entirely of the head will kill a church deader than the proverbial doornail. Conversely, making it entirely subjective and emotional will kill one just as dead. I’m sure not a “charismatic,” but I know that I have felt the presence of the Lord on a few occasions and it’s an experience to cherish and remember.

    My leading questions aside, I do appreciate your apparent love of scripture and wish more people took it as seriously as you do.

    Best Wishes,
    The curmudgeonly pastor

    ADB: Good point! Sometimes we forget that the NT Church didn’t have the NT! Atleast not until four of the disciples, and Paul, Timothy, Peter and others started their writings.

  11. Ewan said

    It is the Bible denying old-earthers who can’t see reality given that the physical evidence better supports a young age for the earth and universe.

  12. Stanley said

    Good one Ewan.

    This one isn’t up for debate, we’ve put this issue to rest.

  13. Stanley said

    The world isn’t 6000 years old. You’d have to be the dimmest star in several solar systems to think otherwise.

    I listened to Michael Browns word about Revival on his website entitled ”No Short Cuts”, it was really good. I encourage anyone else wanting to know what real Revival is all about to listen, he doesn’t talk about the Lakeland Revival in particular, but I totally agreed with what he was saying about true Revival.
