What Do I Really Want To See? Part 2 – Deep Longings

  1. OUR Most CRITICAL NEEDby A.W. TozerSurely we need a baptism of clear seeing if we are to escape thefate of Israel (and of every other religious body in history that forsookGod). If not the greatest need, then surely one of the greatest is forthe appearance of Christian leaders with prophetic vision. Wedesperately need seers who can see through the mist. Unless theycome soon, it will be too late for this generation. And if they docome, we will no doubt crucify a few of them in the name of ourworldly orthodoxy. But the cross is always the harbinger of theresurrection.Mere evangelism is not our present need. Evangelism does nomore than extend religion, of whatever kind it may be. It gainsacceptance for religion among larger numbers of people withoutgiving much thought to the quality of that religion. The tragedy isthat present-day evangelism accepts the degenerate form ofChristianity now current as the very religion of the apostles andbusies itself with making converts to it with no questions asked.And all the time we are moving farther and farther from the NewTestament pattern.We must have a new reformation. There must come a violent breakwith that irresponsible, amusement-mad, paganized pseudo-religionwhich passes today for the faith of Christ and which is being spreadall over the world by unspiritual men employing unscriptural methodsto achieve their ends.When the Roman church apostatized, God brought about theReformation. When the Reformation declined, God raised up theMoravians and the Wesleys. When these movements began todie, God raised up fundamentalism and the “deeper life” groups.Now that these have almost without exception sold out to the world-what next?-Source- “We travel an appointed way” – A.W. Tozer, chapter

    sorry, somehow my comment before the Tozer quote got switched around.
    Thank you brother for these words. I too have a prophetic call and can identify with you.
    I have found it so difficult to stand against the push from other believers to lower God’s high standard in order to include the largest number of professing believers.
    May we always point people to the great holiness of God with boldness and grace and let the chips fall where they will.
    Here is an excerpt from Tozer that has encouraged me lately:
