AS A JESUS REVOLUTIONARY…

  1. I will spend quality time with God every day in prayer and the Word.
  2. I will walk in purity of heart and integrity of life, in thought, in speech, and in deed.
  3. I will not be ashamed of Jesus but will confess him boldly as Lord and Savior.
  4. I will commit myself to the Great Commission, looking for opportunities to win the lost, restore the backslidden, and make disciples.
  5. I will seek to be a peacemaker and ambassador of reconciliation, forgiving those who have offended me and seeking the forgiveness of those whom I have offended.
  6. I will walk in love towards those who despise and reject me, overcoming evil with good and hostility with kindness.
  7. I will pursue fellowship with brothers and sisters of like mind and will not separate myself from the Body.
  8. I will be involved with a ministry of mercy, through serving or through giving, helping to relieve human suffering in a tangible way.
  9. I will stand for righteousness and justice, enlisting myself in a moral cause for the honor of the Lord and the good of society.

10.  I will seek the fullness of the Spirit, availing myself of everything God has made available for His people today.

The Purpose for Creating All Things – Art Katz: ‘Recognize the Influence’: VOR article by Marcus French:

Paul is about to tell us what the intent is, and the purpose, for which reason, God has created all things. So how dare you just sit there, as if you’re hearing a mere sermon? How is it you’re not leaning forward in your seat, with your hand cupped at your ear, that you should […]

  1. Hello,I am only an unregenerate Gentile who studies Holy Scripture,but I have a comment.

    If British and American flocks are going to adorn the teaching of God the Savior (Titus 2:10) ,rather than bringing the way of truth into disrepute by their worldliness/sameness (2 Peter 2 : 1-3),two problems need to be sorted out root ‘n’ branch – Cessationism,and OSAS. When Paul discovered serious errors among disciples,he was not afraid to risk their friendship and even become their enemy by telling them the truth (Galatians 4:16 – also see Proverbs 28:23).

    What did Peter and John say about the deficient situation in Samaria (Acts 8 ) ?
    Did they say ” That’s OK,I mean,we don’t want to risk causing disunity,for Jesus prayed for unity – no,we will just call them ‘Non-Charismatics’ and ‘Cessationists’ and leave them as they are.”
    (Is baptism in Holy Spirit an optional extra ? – is it worth contending for ? )
    Did they take that stance ? No,they went down there and got it sorted.

    What did Paul say about Hymenaeus ?
    Did he say ” What Hymenaeus teaches is OK,I mean,I don’t want to risk causing disunity,for Jesus prayed for unity – no,I will just call his followers ‘Hymenaeuns’ and ‘Post-Resurrectionists’ and leave them as they are.”
    Did Paul take that stance ? No,Paul said such men are to be gently corrected,and,if necessary,to turn away from such.

    What would Paul say about the teaching of John Calvin (let alone his fruit) ?
    Would he say “What Calvin teaches is OK,I mean,I don’t want to risk causing disunity,for Jesus prayed for unity – no,I will just call his followers ‘Calvinists’ and ‘Predestinarians’ and leave them as they are.”

    What about speaking the boat-rocking truth in love ?
    What about contending earnestly for all aspects of the faith which was once for all handing down to the saints ?
    What about sorting out Thyatiran teachings which lead bondservants astray – even into sexual immorality ?
    How can there be a revolution,how can there be a dramatic change in the standard of British and American flocks,if people who do not sit at the feet of Cessationists and/or Calvin are unwilling to contend with these problems which disempower disciples on the power front,and which can,I believe,lead to wallowing in worldliness on the lifestyle front.

    Jesus did pray for unity,but,did He pray for unity at the expense of truth ? ; at the expense of contending for a balanced and scriptural understanding of salvation ? ; at the expense of an authentic baptism in Holy Spirit,and the Holy Spirit’s nine gifts for the edification of the Body ? – did He ???

    Can Scripture be broken ? – how about Galatians 6:7 ?
    If the farm workers only ever sow potatoes,will the landowner ever reap a crop of turnips ?
    If (sincere but mistaught) teachers keep feeding Cessationism and OSAS into the minds of British and American disciples,will Britain and America ever reap an empowered,purified,effective army of agape-soldiers ?

    If these things had been dealt with centuries ago,perhaps George Barna’s 1997 survey might’ve been a bit more salty.
    If there is to be a revolution,the Body today needs some Peters,some Johns,some Pauls – men who get root problems sorted ; men who help the deficient and/or mistaught,rather than giving them a label ; men who know the Lord hates one who spreads strife among brothers (Proverbs 6:19),but who also know that is only one side of the ‘unity-truth coin’.

  2. I went searching for Scripture to support the commitments you outlined, Dr. Brown. I don’t believe I have room to include the verses themselves, but I did list the ones I found. I’m sure there are plenty more, and if someone wants to add to my list, I welcome the contributions.

    ISAIAH 59:2
    1 CORINTHIANS 6:14

  3. Yes, I do believe an awakening/revival is coming. Will everyone who calls themselves “christian” or a true believer in Jesus Christ be a part of it? I have my doubts. The very christians who will allow themselves to be used by God may be wrongly labeled “heretics” by other christians. It is already happening today.

    I believe that God has promised to pour out His Spirit and touch the hearts of the unsaved world in a mighty way. He will draw them into relationship with Him and set them free from bondage. He will heal their diseases. Many miracles will take place. All of Dr Brown’s 10 points are important, but I would encourage everyone to consider #10: “seeking the fullness of the Spirit, availing myself of everything God has made available for His people today.” Don’t count out God’s supernatural. Don’t miss out on it. Don’t condemn other believers because they believe healing and miracles are for today.
