Strange Fire. SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?!

I used to make excuses for people who did not believe like I do:

    • They don’t know any better.
    • That is just what they were always taught.
    • Their denomination believes like that.
    • etc., etc., etc.

Every time I did, though, I heard the same thing, “They have the same Bible that you do.” The difference is that I have read mine through, and believe what it says.  I have also studied out what it says to make sure that I am getting the correct meaning from it.  I feel sorry for those that make the conscious choice not to, and instead choose to believe doctrinal and denominational theologies, wrong though they be.  But, it is their choice.

In response to the book Strange Fire by John MacArthur and comments he made recently, I wanted to let you know what G-d said about the workings of The Holy Spirit, so here are some articles I have written on what Jesus said were the signs that follow believers, what it means to be his witness, a follower of Christ, etc.

Again, these are not my opinions, beliefs, or thoughts but the Bare Bones of the Gospel with nothing added and nothing changed.

There are more, but I if you read any of these, you will see the truth of the matter.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 tells us that in the last days there will be those that are “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof”.    It sounds like we are there, and that seems to be what the deal is here.

How serious is this?  Extremely.  Verse 5 continues by telling us, “from such turn away.”  Not follow.  Not listen to or make excuses for, but turn away.[1]

Turn away.  What does that really mean here, though?  Avoid.[2]  Not to be nice to them just don’t hang out with them, but avoid.  Period.

It is too late to tell us that this is wrong.  I’ve seen too many miracles, had too many prayers answered, flow in too many of the Gifts and have for almost 20 years now.  As have my spouse and son, also.

So let’s see:  People are being saved, filled, healed, and delivered, all to the glory of G-d.  You know, if it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, and waddles like a duck, IT’S A DUCK, DUDE!  The Holy Spirit is moving today, just as always.

When someone has grown green beans for years you can’t tell them , just because you believe it for whatever reason, that doing so is wrong, it is not for today, and it doesn’t work.  You are too late.  They know better, and you are wrong.

The same here.When someone is doing something, why try to tell them it can’t be done?

The Bible spells all of this out very plainly, but it is up to each of us whether we choose to believe G-d’s Truths or not.  I hope that those choosing to believe their denominational-isms instead of Scriptures come to know the truth before it is too late.  For their sake.


[1] 2 Timothy 3:1-5
(1) This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
(2) For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
(3) Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
(4) Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
(5) Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
