A Call To Worship

King David wrote in Psalm 113:1-3: “Praise ye the Lord. Praise, O ye servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord. Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord’s name is to be praised.”

Hymn—“Come, Christians, Join To Sing”

Scripture Reading—Psalm 38:1-22

”O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore. There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin. For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me. My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness. I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh. I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart. Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee. My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me. My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off. They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long. But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth. Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs. For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God. For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me. For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me. For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin. But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied. They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is. Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me. Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.”

Sermon—“The Charismatic Movement”

Some of the points covered in this sermon:
• Underscoring the leading features of the Spirit baptism which restricts it to the three incidents recorded in Acts 2, 8 and 10
• Explaining why Acts 19, 1 Corinthians 12 and Titus 3 do not reference a Spirit baptism
• Tracing the origin and development of the Charismatic Movement between the 18th and 20th centuries
• Explaining the pivotal role the cultural revolution of the 1960’s played in the development of the Charismatic Movement
• Explaining the doctrine of the Charismatic Movement, as it relates to Spirit baptism, speaking in new tongues, faith healing and the utterance of prophetic revelations
• Explaining the role music plays in the Charismatic Movement, and why it is an essential departure from the faith, rather than a mere preferential style of “worship”
• Showing how the Charismatic Movement now dominates the “Evangelical” circle of churches in the Philippines
• Making an appeal to the Lord’s people to exercise discernment and come out from Charismatic churches, rejecting its new age philosophies and avoiding its pervasive influences
