It's time to get back to the simple basics of the Bible and learning the art of waiting on the Holy Spirit and letting Him encourage and teach our hungry hearts. If we do not culitvate a daily habit of waiting on God in prayer and study His Word then we are a prime candidate for deception and error in this hour"
"Full gospel churches that once had their origins birthed from sudden spiritual outpourings have now become program driven corporate centers and have adopted the church growth philosphy for being "program based" rather than "Presence based" in how they attempt to win and disciple people. What are called "worship services" have now migrated towards being hyped up entertainment concerts that have no time allotments in which to allow for a deep contact point of intimacy from heaven to transform the thirsty sheep. Why? Because the pulpits throughout this land are occupied by creative and controlling men who are spiritually enept and ignorant of the realms of God. It is so much easier for their carnal lifestyles to read a book on how to implement managerial "leadership" principles than to maintain of lifestyle of Gethsemane-style waiting on God."
