In RT's own words... Our premise is this. It seems to us that there has been a ‘silent divorce’ in the church, speaking generally, between the Word and the Spirit. When there is a divorce, some children stay with the mother, some stay with the father.
In this divorce, there are those on the ‘word’ side and those on the ‘Spirit’ side. What is the difference?
Take those of us who represent the Word. Our message is this: we must earnestly contend for the faith ‘once delivered unto the saints’ (Jude 3), we need get back to expository preaching, sound doctrine such as justification by faith, the sovereignty of God and the internal testimony of the Spirit as taught by men like Martin Luther, John Calvin and Jonathan Edwards. What is wrong with this emphasis? Nothing. It is exactly right.
Take those whose emphasis has been on the Holy Spirit. What is the message? We need to rediscover the power that was manifested in the Book of Acts, there needs to be a demonstration of signs, wonders and miracles; we need to see the gifts of the Spirit operating in the church – that the world will once again take notice of the church so that people are left without excuse. What is wrong with this emphasis? Nothing. It is exactly right.
We believe that the need of the hour is not one or the other – but both! It is our view that this simultaneous combination will result in spontaneous combustion! And then, but almost certainly only then, will the world be shaken once again by the message of the church.
This was the message I have preached over the years at Westminster Chapel in London. This is what we are endeavoring to preach in America and around the world. This is not all we preach but it is certainly one of the main things we preach alongside the need for total forgiveness and learning to be sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit. We need your prayers. God bless you.
Reviews - What do customers think about Sensitivity Of The Spirit?
Sensitivity of the Spirit makes the intangible, tangible Nov 9, 2006
This book does more to paint a tangible picture of what is definitely intangible as I have ever read. It is written in detail, it is compartmentalized, and when one is finished reading it; it is possible to put yourself through the sensitivity to the spirit test. It definitely causes one to be mindful of all behaviour both, physical as well as mental. The biblical knowledge coupled with the personal experience and references makes it a must read for anyone striving to grow spiritually.
Fantasic Shopping @ Amazon.com Apr 28, 2006
I forgot for a moment that I live on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and the mail is slow! Fantastic Shopping was most professional but courteous, as to the "whys" I hadn't received my book. I appreciate their concern over one new customer, and I will purchase another book using them. Very customer oriented company.
The Sensitivity of the Spirit May 1, 2004
Perhaps a better way to look at it, is that we have been working on such a loving relationship with Jesus and are trying to immitate His Character Traits and when we stray from this path or sin we disconnect or put other things in the way. They have always been the same for all times. We hopefully are the ones getting better and better. There is also another thought, that sometimes God places adversity in our path and we in the beginning of this process think that it is bad. But this is just his way of making us stronger and shaping us the way that He wants us. At this period, we see and feel things that we don't ordinally have seen or felt before. This phase stops, not because we have done somethings wrong, but because we now understand what He wants us to do. (Kind of like a gentle push)
Worth reading!!! Dec 3, 2003
This is a very informative and enlightening book on the anointing and presence of the Holy Spirit in a Christian's life. Using the story in Luke of when Mary and Joseph left Jesus behind in the temple at the age of 12, Kendall explains how we as Christians often travel on in life believing the Holy Spirit is right there with us when, in fact, we need to retrace our steps to reconnect with Him again. Kendall also uses the Biblical comparison of the Holy Spirit as a dove, which provides thoughtful analogies to help gain a deeper understanding of Him.
