"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."

God became flesh (Jesus) and came to Jews. Jews rejected Jesus. God rejected Jews and destroyed the temple. God baptizes the obedient with the Holy Ghost and either the gift of tongues, or prophesy, or both follow them. Satan is against the baptism and the gifts. The servants of Satan are also against them. John MacArthur is one of their leaders. Are you also a servant of Satan or a servant of God?
If we love God with reverential fear, we will obey God - We will stop sinning.

The Transcript of this Message
Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus, the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be upon you.
God has chosen the Jews as his people. Jews worshiped God in the temple, but rejected Jesus saying that he did miracles and cast the demons by Beelzebub and he has a devil. It is in Matt 12:24 & John 8:48 & 52. Jesus called the Jews as the children of the devil. It is in John 8:43 & 44. God rejected them and destroyed their temple. Now servants of Satan being mixed with Christians call the supernatural manifestations of the Holy Ghost as the works of demons. In Mark 3:29 Jesus says he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath no forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: Matt 12:32 Jesus says whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, nor in the world to come. That is, anyone who calls the manifestations of the Holy Ghost as of the devil will not be forgiven and they will be condemned in eternal fire.
Now let us see who begins the things of the Holy Ghost. Luke 3:16 says Jesus shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost. Jesus says in Mark 16:17 believers shall speak in new tongues. Here we see that the baptism of the Holy Ghost and the speaking in tongues are initiated by Jesus Christ. Let us see what he commanded his disciples to do. Acts 1:4 says Jesus commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father...5 ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence ... 8 ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses. That is, Jesus Christ requires them to be baptized by the Holy Ghost and then to preach his gospel. Those preachers who do not follow this commandment of Jesus Christ are preachers without license.
Look at the following scriptures to verify whether the Holy Ghost baptism was manifested by the gift of tongues or prophesy or both. Acts 2:4 they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 10:44-46 the Holy Ghost fell on them all. ... the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. ... For they heard them speak with tongues, Acts 19:6 ... the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues and prophesied. Acts 2:17... in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: your sons and your daughters shall prophesy. The last days that God mentioned are not over yet. We are still in the last days. So the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the gifts of tongues and prophesy is still being poured upon his people.
Recently, a man rebutted my video on spiritual gifts with a video of John MacArthur. He has 22 video clips against the gift of speaking in tongues. He is a famous leading pastor preacher from California. John MacArthur is a frequent guest to Larry King show for many Christian issues. In all his 22 video clips, he has called the works of the Holy Ghost as the works of the devil. I am not able to rebuttal all his 22 videos here for lack of time, but I will pin point what he has said. If you want me to rebuttal any of his videos, write to me. Then I will rebuttal that video for you comparing it with the word of God.
Let me compare here what MacArthur says with what Bible says about Corinthian church. Let us see first what MacArthur has to say. He says: 1. Corinthians could no way have any gift of God at all since they do not qualify to receive any gifts from God. 2. Corinthian church is Christianity and paganism welded together. 3. They let the entire mass of satanic system that existed in society, infiltrated the church. 4. The spiritual gifts to Corinthians are from pagan god Diana. 5. The tongue in Corinthian church is the same as the tongue in the temple of Diana. 6. The pagan style religion where the priests and priestesses actually entered into orgies came to them. 7. The whole idea of their sexual, sensual, erotic and gibberish that went on with divine utterances with tongues all rolled in one big ball under the mystery religion in Babylon has entered Corinthian church. These are just a few things from what he has said.
Now, let us see what the Bible says about Corinthian church. 1 Cor 1:4-7 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; .. That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; .. Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: .. So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. That is, the Bible says that God has given everything in full to the Corinthian church and they were waiting for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ as the bride. And, a few that needed correction were also corrected.
In short, MacArthur says that the Corinthian church was under the pagan god Diana and they perform orgies while speaking in tongues, whereas the Bible says that they are enriched by God in everything and they are as a bride waiting for Christ. Which is true? Why did he slander God's church? The strange thing is that Christians consider this man as a great pastor and a leader? Is it not a shame to Christianity? So many preachers preach such things against the Holy Ghost manifestations. It is blasphemy. Knowing that blasphemy against the Holy Ghost will not be forgiven they still do it. Why do they do it? 1 Cor 2:14 says the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. That is, they blaspheme because they do not have the spirit of God and they think the manifestations of the Holy Ghost are foolishness.
Let me talk to you. If you do not understand the manifestations of the Holy Ghost, it is because you do not have the spirit of God. Rom 8:9 says if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. So, let me request you. Will you ask God to give you the Spirit of Christ? Will you ask Jesus Christ to baptize you with the Holy Ghost? Will you ask the Holy Ghost to give you the gifts? Those who ask with all their sincere heart will receive them. It is God's promise.
God Bless You
