The Confirmation is a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit beginning at Pentecost.
Its effects are to:
Root us more deeply in divine filiation as children of God.
Unites us more firmly to Christ.
Increases the gifts of the Holy Spirit in us.
Strengthens our bond with the Church.
Associates us more closely to her mission of bearing witness to Christ.
Helps us and more strictly obliges us to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.
Internet Christian Church (Joel 2:28)
Tongues on Fire
Tongues on Fire are a must-read for those who want to experience the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the gift of speaking in tongues. Authored by Pastor Leslie Barnett who writes from experience having been involved in the 1970s “New Prophecy Movement”
Pastor Barnett’s story begins with 18th century evangelist John Wesley, who paid heed to visions and supernatural encounters that occurred in the lives of Methodists of his day. Throughout his life he gathered stories of how God was revealing Himself in the lives of His people, and gave much thought to their meaning. It is in that same spirit that Leslie shares with you his own encounter with an angel who gave him a message which he is able to share with you in Tongues on Fire.
The author explains; that when the Holy Spirit was being poured out with the speaking of tongues—families were reunited, long-severed friendships reconciled and hearts flowed together in true fellowship in the Lord. And even more than that, along with the spirit of unity and love came the spirit of sacrifice and the wondrous spirit of liberty.
“But in today’s modern church tongues is considered unnecessary leaving many to question whether or not Mark 16:17 (the hallmarks to Pentecostalism) should be deemed ‘spurious’ in many modern Bibles. This has led to a noticeable decline in spiritual gifts, particularly among Pentecostalism and Charismatic worship services”— says Pastor Barnett.
To sum up the problem Leslie goes on to say:
“The very soul of Christ’s church, embodied in prophetic utterances, discernment, worship, healing, deliverance, and hospitality has slowly diminished leaving a lifeless institutionalised religion with highly paid works of men.” (2 Timothy 3: 1-3).
Of special interest is chapter seventeen were Pastor Barnett provides a spiritual explanation as to why Brett Peter Cowen was involved in one of Australia’s most horrendous crimes against Daniel Morcombe and how it may have been avoided. And in chapter twenty five he tells of a couple who survived 9/11 by obeying God rather than man.
Chapter five highlights the influence of the New Apostolic Reform movement causing a schism within the Assemblies of God churches.
“Many charismatic’s are concerned that this revised form of Pentecostalism may emulate the second century Montanist movement when prophecy became presumptuous by self appointed apostles, prophets and prophetesses”— says Leslie. (Ephesians 4:11-13)
Last but not least is chapter thirty three which is dedicated to “the Mysterious Messengers”-the angels of God, who have played a vital role in producing this work.
