Does The Bible say There will be an Endtime Revival?
Will there be a Revival in the last days or an Apostasy of the Church? This collection of articles and scriptures will hopefully answer that question.
An online book only available in Adobe Acrobat pdf format, Anointing Or Apostasy - The Latter Rain Legacy by Charles S. Graves gives a history of the Latter Rain movement exposing the apostasy of the "Third Wave, New Apostolic Reformation or the Saints Movement, The Elijah Company, Joel's Army" etc.
"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;" (2 Timothy 3:13-14)
Are you aware that the word "anointing" means Christ in the Greek? This is why so many Pentecostals running down the RIVER toward the NEW THING, in the LATTER RAIN no longer need Christ himself. They now have this anointing. But is it really of God??? Read all about it in Implications of the New Anointing by Bill Randles.
"For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one [Holy Spirit] who now holds it back will continue to do so till he [in the form of the Church] is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one [antichrist] will be revealed whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming" (2 Thess. 2:7, 8)
Does Scripture promise us revival in the endtimes? Does scripture indicate that Christians should all gather together under one head (other than Christ)? Is it scriptural to call those of other faiths brothers and sisters in Christ? All those questions and more will hopefully be answered in another article on this site called, Ecumenicalism's Scriptural Flaws
"The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved." (2 Thess. 2:9,10)
A very good article exposing the real agenda behind the so called "revivals" is The New Thing by Tricia Tillin. It explains how Gnosticism is the key to the end-time religion of the Antichrist, i.e., revealed knowledge via secret tradition or direct revelation. Tricia also shows how this revival movement is tied in with Masonry and other forms of Mysticism such as in false humility and the worship of angels and how Toronto, Brownsville and the Latter Rain tie into it all by promoting leaders who claim to possess the wisdom of the ancients, i.e., those through whom the "anointing" flows.
"When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?" (Luke 18:8)
Also see Jeannette Haley's article on this site Gold Dust shows how the gold dust that is appearing in churches today, via the Manifest Sons of God (MSOG) movement has occultic origins. MSOG is now known as the NAR (New Apostolic Reformation).
Another article on this site called Strange Fire provides more information on the MSOG/NAR and provides a list of it's promoters

Ten Reasons to Reject Kingdom-Dominion Teachings by Tricia Tillin. This movement is also called Restoration Theology, i.e., the Church must bring the world to it's knees before Christ can come back. This group also preaches Replacement Theology, i.e., the Church has replaced Isreal in God's eyes and all the Kingdom promises meant for Isreal are now destined for the Church instead.
Deception in the Church is a web site with a plethora of links to ministries exposing the flaws in an endtime revival.
