What is wrong with PENTECOSTALS?
The Pentecostal Experience, the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues was promised to all those who OBEY Jesus Christ, who REPENT and are baptized in water and who seek to follow Jesus Christ. The promise is to ALL who seriously want to follow Jesus Christ. It is the BEGINNING of our walk with Christ because we need the Holy Spirit guidance to be able to follow Jesus Christ and to do what He commands us to do, to do the WORKS that He prepared for us to do in His kingdom.
The problem with most Pentecostals is that once they receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit they believe that they have a guarantee of salvation and they never become DISCIPLES of Jesus Christ, they never FOLLOW Him. They never do the works that He prepared for them to do and that is why most of them will PERISH.
The baptism in the Holy Spirit is only the START of our walk with Jesus Christ, AFTER repentance, after being baptized in water and being filled with the Holy Spirit, only then are we ready to start following Jesus Christ because through the Holy Spirit baptism we come into relationship with Jesus Christ.
Most Pentecostals do not follow after the Holy Spirit, they follow after men and their own spirit and they put up a show. They disgrace the Holy Spirit of God, they make a mockery of God because they do not do the works of God.
We read in the book of Acts that after the apostles received the baptism in the Holy Spirit they went out under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and in the POWER of the Holy Spirit and they preached the gospel of Jesus Christ with signs and wonders, those signs and wonders that He promised would follow for those who obey Him. Most Pentecostals never started following Jesus Christ. They never became DISCIPLES.
Those who are LED by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. We need to be FILLED with the Holy Spirit, baptized in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues and we have to pray IN THE SPIRIT, be led by the Holy Spirit and follow the Holy Spirit where He guides us, not follow men. We have to follow Jesus Christ , listen, obey and do what He prepared for us to do. He called us to DUTY, to SERVICE in His kingdom and we need the guidance of the indwelling Holy Spirit to be able to do those works that He called us to do, to bear fruit in His kingdom. Without Jesus Christ we can do nothing. Without His Spirit we cannot DO those things that are pleasing to Him because we have no guidance. We need the Holy Spirit INFILLING and the GUIDANCE of the Holy Spirit to bear fruit for the kingdom of God.
May Jesus bless you.
