Flee from the Assemblies of God 4

Posted: June 7, 2013 in apostasy, assemblies of god, harlot church, quotes

Brother Seymour was recognized as the nominal leader in charge. But we had no pope or hierarchy. We were “brethren.” We had no human program. The Lord Himself was leading. We had no priest class, nor priest craft. These things have come in later, with the apostatizing of the movement. We did not even have a platform or pulpit in the beginning. All were on a level. The ministers were servants, according to the true meaning of the word.

  1. How can the Lord Himself lead when brother Seymour is in charge? Wouldn’t this be a contradiction or am I missing something?

    Brother, I have not studied the history of this in great depth but from what I have the word charge seems in the context of

    “The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. ”

    and not that of gentile lordship. I have some other accounts from Azusa in this series of posts and they would strongly point in that direction. I mainly recall these things because of how I was taught the AOG denomination is the result of that revival, when by first hand accounts AOG is a result of the true work of God apostatizing.

    Miss you dear brother,

    Jim

    Wasn’t it Brother Seymour, or was it Frank Bartleman, who would put his face into a shoebox while prostrate on the floor, when meetings began? Truly the Lord orchestrated the goings-on and men were in fear and reverence to refrain from putting their hands on it.
