TO RECAP: From Part 1:
Modern-day “revivals” feature lots of singing, lots of emotion and very little–if any–salvation (as demonstrated by fruits of repentance).
“Revivals” in the apostate churches focus on emotions.
The season is upon us for the flesh-pleasing get-togethers the worldly apostate churches label “revivals.” Several aspects of these “carnival shows for Satan” were touched upon a few days ago (Man-Manufactured Revivals).
“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
Without faith it is impossible to please God. But the satanic sideshows called “revivals” traffic, not in faith, but in things which can be heard, seen, felt and known through the senses. There is no faith needed when sight is used.
“(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”
—2 Corinthians 5:7
Promises of the lame walking, the blind recovering their sight, the deaf hearing: people walking by faith don’t need signs to “confirm” their faith. In Jesus’ day, the Pharisees (who operated totally through sight) DID need signs and miracles.
“But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:”
And now, the apostate churches have come full circle back to the Pharisees: they also have no faith. There is no faith operating at an event where the audience is expecting physical signs, wonders and miracles. In fact, faith operates when one cannot see physical signs.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. “
Perhaps the worst part of this picture is the army of sight-walkers who follow the nationally-known faith healers on their nationwide tours, hoping that their faithlessness will be rewarded by a miracle.
And of course, the apostates call their sight-walking hunger for signs and miracles “faith”–and the smiling wolves in the pulpits are all about promoting, pandering to and confirming such faithless “faith.”
Those hawking the apostate “revivals” which promote/promise “miracles” are paving the way for the end times man of sin. Because the churches are totally apostate, they will worship the dragon (believing Satan to be God Almighty); because the churches are faithless, they will succumb to the allure of supernatural signs and lying wonders and miracles–all courtesy of the dragon [Satan] and the man of sin.
Because it has no truth, the whole world will be deceived by the miracles of the dragon.
All mankind–whose names are not written in the Lamb’s book of life–will fall prey to the deception.
Mankind is being prepared today for the supernatural deceptions of the not-so-distant future.
In buildings known as churches.
At faithless side shows called “revivals.”
“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.”
“And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,”
—2 Thessalonians 2:8-9
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast;”
“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
“And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”
Those in the pulpits are part of Satan’s priesthood. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the satanic sideshows the apostate churches refer to as “revivals.”

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-4
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
