“God willing, we will move forward to further understanding.” (Hebrews 6:3 NIV)
n this teaching, Dr. Francine encourages the church to move on to deeper spiritual truths by teaching sound doctrine in 2 Timothy 4:3-4. Paul warned us that a time would come when people would not put up with sound teaching. Instead they’ll surround themselves with teachers who approve of their lifestyles and tell them what they want to hear because it suits their flesh. They will turn their ears away from the real truth because they prefer the sound of fables and myths (2 Timothy 4:3-4). If we are not spending time in God’s Word, we can easily be lead astray. It will be easy for us to turn our ears toward what sounds right or what makes us comfortable.
As I study about revivals, reformation and moves of the Holy Spirit over the past few decades, I find that the men and women of faith have an unyielding desire and passion for truth and seeing the whole earth filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD,” filling the earth (Habakkuk 2:14). Men and women the likes of William J. Seymour n African American, holiness preacher who initiated the Azusa Street Revival, F. F. Bosworth an American evangelist, Smith Wigglesworth: Apostle of Faith, Kathryn Kuhlman an American evangelist known for hosting healing services, Maria Buelah Woodworth-Etter an American healing evangelist. These are just a few men and women whose faith in God catapulted them into a realm of the Spirit that impacted their generation. Their paths weren’t all peaches and cream, but they all had one thing in common — faith to do the impossible!
