On his latest YouTube episode, Ps. Chris Rosebrough brings forward the compelling argument that Charismatics and Pentecostals are in fact ‘restorationists’ and not the ‘continuationists’ they claim to be.
Ps. Rosebrough states:
“Have you ever heard the major claim of Charismatics and Pentecostals that they are ‘continuationists’, while people who are Reformed or Lutheran or whatever, believe that the Apostolic sign gifts have ceased? That they are ‘cessationists’ and ‘cessationist’ equals bad and unbiblical while ‘continuationists’ equals good and biblical? That’s all part of a false narrative. Now a little bit of a note here, I’ve said it before and I will reiterate – I used to be a charismatic. Yes, 30 years ago my wife and I were caught up in the ‘Latter Rain’ movement, part of the third wave of the charismatic movement. And in the Latter Rain we were told about how God was restoring, and had restored, prophets to the earth and that God was going to be restoring, in the near future, apostles to the earth and to the church. In fact, when you do your historical work, you’re going to note that Charismatics and Pentecostals historically have been ‘cessationists’ who believe that God has restored certain things like the charismata, prophets and evangelists and apostles. Yes that’s what they actually believe. So what we are going to do is, we are going to blow this up – this will be an academic lesson of ‘Fighting For The Faith’.
Ps Chris Rosebrough is host of the ‘Fighting for the Faith’ radio program and Pastor of Kongsvinger Lutheran Church, a member congregation of the American Association of Lutheran Churches, in Oslo, Minnesota .
“Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.” Hebrews 1:1-4
Pentecostals are RESTORATIONISTS Not Continuationists.
