Authenticating Moves of God

I’m really enjoying Bill Johnson’s When Heaven Invades Earth!

Here’s another tidbit: Bill says it’s nice when theologians and Christian leaders support a revival. But to see if it’s really of God, he looks to how the demonized respond.

Think about it. The Pharisees loved God. They were passionate about their seeking and living. And they (almost) completely missed God’s move in the coming of Jesus. But the demonized got it. Those desperate for a touch of God got it. And got in the way of what He was doing. The sick sought His healing. The demonized were set free. The demons even knew who Jesus was and proclaimed it!

God help us from ever arriving. May we always keep a posture of desperation in our relationship to God.
