“JAPAN IS IN MY HANDS-SEND ME MISSIONARIES AND I WILL GIVE YOU A CHRISTIAN JAPAN”
GENERAL DOUGLAS MacARTHUR’s DENIED REQUEST DURING THE HEALING REVIVAL
WE LEFT GLORY DOME AND CAME TO AMERICA NOT FOR CROWD BUT BECAUSE THE LABOURS OF BILLY GRAHAM AND BILLY SUNDAY MUST NOT BE IN VAIN
IF JESUS REMAINED WITH THE FATHER NOBODY WILL BE SAVED
GOD DID NOT SEND JESUS CHRIST TO DIE JUST TO GIVE SOMEBODY A PROFESSION-PASTOR, REVEREND-HE DID SO TO RESCUE A GENERATION FROM THE FLAMES OF HELL
THERE WERE 120 HEALING EVANGELISTS IN AMERICA DURING THE VOICE OF HEALING CAMPAIGNS BUT LESS THAN 5 TOOK THE FIRE TO THE WORLD AND THE REVIVAL FADED
– Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche on “CAUSES OF REVIVAL LOSS (2)” New York Apostolic Invasion – Day 3 (Morning Session) New York, USA – Part A.
We began seeing “CAUSES OF REVIVAL LOSS” – the things that cause revival to be lost. We began to see that in most places of the earth where God had moved before, the time comes where the move stops, what are the things that makes moves to end?
1. We said, when we stop the spiritual exercises that brought us into revival, when we stop paying the price that give rise to revival
2. We said, when activity for God replaces intimacy with God. When we become more interested in the work of God than in walk with God, it seizes
3. When what began in the spirit is being perfected in the flesh. When we begin to attempt to do in the energy of the flesh, what can only be done in the power of the spirit, the revival seizes.
4. When we decide to settle around particular manifestations of God and assume that nothing can be better than this, meanwhile God is too big to run out of new things. We said that yesterday. It causes revival to stop.
5. When the glory of God is diverted to man. When the man of God becomes visible than the God of the man. When the man of God is getting more celebrated than the God of the acts, then it is time for revival to end. When man is increasing and God is decreasing. Unlike what John the Baptist, “I must decrease and He must increase”, but in this case, God is decreasing and man is increasing. Then it is time for God to summarize the revival.
6. When evangelism and discipleship are not the focus of revival, the revival will have no future.
It was Oswald J. Smith who said, “the sole purpose of the Church is evangelization of the lost”. Matthew 28:18-20. Revival stops when people decide to settle around the move of God for personal comfort and excitement; for a feel-good gathering instead of regional, national or generational impact, they settle, they come to Church and see things, we make ourselves happy.
The Holy Ghost told me sometime ago, He said “God will not send His son Jesus Christ to die just to give somebody a profession”.
No, just to give somebody a profession, “I’m a Clergyman, a Pastor or a Reverend”, that is not possible. Just in order to make someone feel good, no, it’s far beyond that. It’s the rescue of a generation from the flames of hell. When revival does not translate into evangelism, discipleship and raising of people, that revival comes to an end.
There was a massive Healing Revival in America and we thank God for all the great men that were used then.
There were 120 Healing Evangelists in the voice of Healing campaigns, I’m not sure that up to 5 of them went to the world with the fire that was burning in America then. I know that T. L. Osborn was the first one to popularize open air crusade around the world and a few of them went but that revival was so massive in America and literally faded after a while.
Revival ends when it doesn’t translate into evangelism.
On the 6th of December, I believe, of 1941 when America was introduced into the second World War by the bombing of Pearl Harbour by Japan.
Japan was very brutal in the second World War, literally crippled the Philippines and was a threat to everybody.
In that period, America sent out a 4-star General by the name of General Douglas MacArthur, who went into Japan.
His father was a 4-star General too. He was a born again child of God, he carried fire in his bones. He arrived Japan and bowed Japan, he disciplined Japan and brought Japan to its knees and freed the Philippines. When Japan saw how powerful this man was, they almost worshiped God. Everything, everywhere he went, whatever he said was law.
General Douglas MacArthur, he introduced Japan to civilization. He introduced the modern technology, he imported from America and Japan became second to America then in terms of technology.
General Douglas MacArthur sent back to the Pentecostals and Evangelicals in America, he said, “Japan is in my hands, send me missionaries and I will give you a Christian Japan”, nobody responded, no missionaries, no major missions, no response.
At that time, I believe that Japan was like 3 percent Christian and 97 percent Buddhists, today, the percentage has not changed, today, the percentage is almost worse. Maybe it’s 1 percent Christian now.
You know that the Healing Revival came in the middle of the second World War AND after that. So, revival ends when mission, evangelism and discipleship is not the focus.
As I’m speaking to you now, I’m giving you a challenge because the earth is still waiting. I told you yesterday that I didn’t come here because we are looking for crowd to preach to, that’s the truth and this is in all humility.
We came here because the wells of revival must be redug in America, we came here because the labours of Charles G. Finney, D. L. Moody cannot be in vain; the labours of Billy Graham, Billy Sunday cannot be in vain. We didn’t come because we are looking for who to preach to, we could remain there (Glory Dome), Sunday upon Sunday.
Apart from this (Glory Dome), there are hundreds others within the same city running multiple services but if Jesus remained with the Father, nobody would be saved. If He continued to enjoy the fellowship of the Father and the Holy Spirit, nobody will be saved.
The purpose, don’t ever forget it, if God begins to move upon your life, your ministry and your family, just ensure that it is extended to somebody. Just ensure that it touches a person, a family, a community, a state, a nation, it just goes beyond where you are.
Revival usually will end if the same group of people gather together to themselves and do the same old things and there’s not a sinner who came for the altar call, in fact there are some meetings where there’s no altar call, nobody was expected to be saved.
“Just entertain ourselves, make ourselves to feel happy and then just return back to the same happiness service”, no, that’s not the aim. It (revival) ends when it is localized instead of being globalized.
Last month, we had over 50-something countries that visited in the month of August to the Glory Dome to come to attend Sunday service and other weekly services.
Some stay for 2-5 weeks to catch fire and take the fire back to their nation, cities and Communities. The other year, we had about a 100 countries where people came from to worship. If it doesn’t affect any other person, it’s an irrelevant revival, it’s an inconsequential revival. It’s not worth being called a revival.
If you leave here today, don’t forget the story I just told you.
I first heard it from God’s Servant, Morris Cerullo, the issue of Douglas MacArthur, very painful, very sorrowful. When Evangelism are not the focus of revival it will end.
