Rev Mark Hankins was so right when he said: “religion worships God for what he did in the past but fights what he is doing in the present.”
Some want to cage us within the boundaries of past revelation. They do not believe in any form of reformation of accepted doctrines even though these doctrines moved us forward but still have not produced the desired results as described in the Bible.
They push the idea of loyalty as though those whose books they have read did not push the boundaries and build on what the generation that preceded them taught. Once reformation stops religion comes alive. Growth in revelation is the only thing that can stop the Church from entering into tradition.
With a fresh outpouring of the Spirit which is the hallmark of the Pentecostal movement, comes deeper insights into the truths we know and a greater and different expression.
Those who push back against growth in revelation and diverse operations of the Spirit will simply watch their ministries and churches lose relevance and wither. The only thing that will be said to justify this is results and growth doesn’t count it’s our theology that matters.
