TORONTO BLESSING HELPLINE ARCHIVE DOCUMENT
In Bournemouth, at a Toronto Blessing meeting in April 1995, two women lay on the floor writhing about in an obviously sexual manner. A man came up behind another woman, who was standing, and began to simulate sexual intercourse. Toronto Blessing leaders are becoming very good at providing excuses for such activities. The two women writhing about in a sexual frenzy are not, of course, being sexually explicit.
Goodness me, no! They are said to be
'birthing Christ'!! I do not know what the excuse (sorry, I mean 'prophetic explanation') is for the man who simulated intercourse!
When a woman brayed like a donkey, the excuse was
"Oh, how wonderful - for the Lord to send Jesus again on a donkey"! A man roaring like a lion, was said to be the
"lion of Judah". Endless excuses are being made for all kinds of absurd, sexual and abominable behaviour.
Below, we reproduce the account of the making of the golden calf (Exodus 32, from verse 17) by the Hebrews, When Moses was on the Mount receiving the Decalogue. A brief, but accurate explanation follows - there is no need for me to invent anything ridiculous!
"And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses, (There is) a noise of war in the camp.
And he said, (It is) not the voice of (them that) shout for mastery, neither (is it) the voice of (them that) cry for being overcome: (but) the noise of (them that) sing do I hear.
And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.
And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt (it) in the fire, and ground (it) to powder, and strawed (it) upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink (of it).
And Moses said unto Aaron, what did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?
And Aaron said, let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou knowest the people, that they (are set) on mischief.
For they said unto me, Make us gods, which shall go before us: for (as for) this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
And I said unto them, whosoever hath any gold, let them break (it) off. So they gave (it) me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf.
And when Moses saw that the people (were) naked: (for Aaron had made them naked unto [their] shame among their enemies:)
Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who (is) on the LORD'S side? (let him come) unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves unto him.
And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, (and) go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.
And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.
For Moses had said, Consecrate yourselves today to the LORD, even every man upon his son, and upon his brother: that he may bestow upon you a blessing this day.
And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people, Ye have sinned a great sin...
…the LORD said unto Moses, whoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.
... And the LORD plagued the people, because they made the calf..."
Christians have known the truth, for the LORD has brought them out of Egypt; out of darkness and into light. He has given us His commandments and His word of life. Yet, charismatics have perverted that word and have hidden the light.
Those who have heard their clamour and have seen their false blessings, cry out to the LORD for justice! They know that the noise they hear is not of God, is not of those who fight the good fight of the LORD. It is the noise of dogs who wish to return to their own vomit, who rampage in the abandonment of their own lusts, fantasies and ignorance.
This causes all faithful Believers to become angry with a righteous anger! They throw God's word to the ground, for the sons of men have perverted it. They take the lies of the charismatics and break them apart, crushing them with the weight of Truth. Then they make wayward men to face what they have done, whether or not they wish to see it. They ask - because the LORD also asks - WHY have you done this? With Paul, they ask WHY have you so quickly departed from the Truth of the Gospel and caused the people to sin? But they are a people who delight in being perverse: they do not wish to listen to the Truth of God's word...
They cried out for a new experience of God, when they made nothing of what God had already given them! They sought what God did not give and mistook Satan's lies for the Truth, embracing it fully and without reservation, filling themselves with wrong desires and evil ends. Why should we remain in the Truth, they ask, when those who should teach us are not present? They
speak the truth in this one respect only - but it does not excuse them!
So, they made another god and called it a 'blessing', an evil charade abundant in signs and wonders... for an evil generation seek such, said the Lord Jesus Christ. This made them spiritually naked before unbelievers and before the LORD, to their shame. Thus, the faithful remnant cry out to their LORD, that He will vanquish these new foes of the true Gospel! The faithful, with remorse and yet with holy anger, do battle and fight the foe, for they are on the LORD'S side. They consecrated their lives again to the LORD, that they would not fall to the same fate as their wayward brethren and, in expressing their faithfulness and anger openly, they have God's blessing bestowed upon them. They tell the wayward
"Ye have sinned a great sin", for this is what the LORD has already decreed upon all who build a golden calf.
The LORD promises them that they will be blotted out from His book and He will plague them during their earthly life. Thus all the faithful call out to their brethren
"Come out from amongst them, the Lord's people! Repent and be glad! Repent and return to the old paths, that you will be blessed!" Let this be a warning and a true sign to those who forget God's jealousy and His Truth. Do not listen to leaders of the blind who, with gall, call the faithful
