I just read this on a blog that Teresa from Music From Broken Chords recomended called: Warning Jesus Culture Awakening/ Chicago 2011. I have been seeing more and more about this Jesus Culture awakening popping up. Folks beware of these kinds of things. Go take a look around this blog. Thank you to Teresa for her recommendation and thank you to the Warning Jesus Culture blog for what you are doing. It is so important for Christians to be watchman and warn others about these kinds of false teachings!
Jesus Culture Awakening || Bible Study on Lying Signs and Wonders
Mat 16:4b (NIV) “A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a miraculous sign.”
Yet, take a look at:
Mr 16:17 (NKJ) “And these signs will follow those who believe…”
If you follow me, the resultant chicanery of those hell-bent on a “sign” and subsequent grief this causes in the hearts of those who know and love God can be detected very early on. Yes, a present perversion being blamed on the Holy Spirit is vexing, but we should have seen this the minute someone started “seeking a sign”. Adultery leads to some wild moments of fun and pleasure, no doubt, but later to shame and betrayal and broken lives. It is the same with spiritual adultery.
But on to satanic “signs and wonders”. In this we need to consider carefully the following verse:
2Th 2:9 (TCN) For at the coming of the Lord there will be great activity on the part of Satan, in the form of all kinds of deceptive miracles, signs, and marvels, as well as of wicked attempts to delude.
2Th 2:9 (NKJ) The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders.
