A revival almost always begins among the laity. The ecclesiastical leaders seldom welcome reformation. History repeats itself. The present leaders are too comfortably situated as a rule to desire innovation that might require sacrifice on their part. And God’s fire only falls on sacrifice. An empty altar receives no fire. Cold intellectualism, formal ecclesiasticism, and priestly domination are altogether outside the genius of the Gospel.” ~Frank Bartleman; “The Azusa Street Revival
What if every AOG member who truly loved Jesus left the system?
What if they started to meet on the level ground of the Gospel as brothers and sisters in Christ?
What if they left the denominations buildings to meet and pray in homes, little store fronts in the city, a barn out in the country?
What if they left the corrupt religious system built on the commandments of men and instead committed themselves more soberly to the instructions of the apostles and our Lord?
What if AOG members came to realize that they are currently “altogether outside the genius of the Gospel” according to one of their early pioneers said above?
What would happen?
Maybe something like Azusu street.
