Rev Dr David P Griffiths ministering at the World Revival conference, Sugarcreek, Ohio, USA in November 2013
Revivals in Wales have always been linked to a great Missionary Surge reaching the whole world with the Gospel. This Chapel Restorative Ministry therefore has a heart to build new Medias Chapels throughout Wales so that once more the World can hear the true heart of Wales, not one of its pagan dragon flag but one that has the Christian Gospel at the fore! How can we achieve this - we cannot unless we become the manifestation of HIM!
1 John 4:17 King James Version (KJV)
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
After many years ministering in North Wales we know this God Given Biblical teaching is the most controversial. We have "churches" who see themselves as a separate entity to God with altars made with hands, with seeker friendly "evangelism" courses like Alpha and Toronto/Lakeland style "revivals" with their roots in charismatic Roman Catholicism rather then God & in this we include Cwmbran that seems more intent on ministering
to the people rather than God
Its time to get a hold of REAL REVIVAL
for this is ALL HIM and not thee!!!!!!!!!
Gal. 2:20; Col. 3; II Cor 7:1; 12:9; Gal. 3:3; Rom. 6
Galatians 2:20 King James Version (KJV)
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Point I : If you are a dead man – then who is left?
The real revivalists knew what this was all about. Please read their stories, their testimonies, grasp what was in their hearts, reject the "new thing" beliefs of the new revivals and come back to the real heart of revival - being as HIM - dead to self!
I Cor.6:17; Eph.5:30; Jer. 3:14: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
Point II: Joined unto the Lord –
members of his body, flesh and bones! Holiness!
What a remarkable statement, no room for individuality here, no room for communion rails between man, priesthood and God - only complete union of the Bridegroom with his bride. In North Wales we have had those come with the human perspective of gender roles and in one sense there are gender roles but in this sense there is complete union - as one in Christ Jesus - the bride at one with the bridegroom - GLORY!
Rom. 12:1: I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God,
which is your reasonable service.
Point III: What do we present holy?
When "ye" is used in scripture we talk of the corporate sense meaning the whole body - as Sylvia Pearce says in Louisville - "the whole Gospel to the whole man." The whole Gospel involves a complete union one in Christ Jesus our bodies being a "living sacrifice."
I John 4:17: Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
We have had professing Christians come to us in North Wales who see themselves as a separate entity to God and use the name of Jesus in ministry not understanding what this means. It means only a union, a complete oneness in Christ Jesus, the fullness of the Godhead - not man at all - but Christ!
Point IV: As He is–So Are we?
Rom. 8:17; Gal. 4:7: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
"Joint" means equal, completely equal and those with this revelation all over the world have greatly suffered, but suffering is the pre-requisite to glory - but this being equal has to be understood when it comes to ministry for without this revelation revealed by the Spirit - the individual is just a son of Sceva - having to face all the consequences of that & we have witnessed this happening right here in an area that for too long has been deprived of the true Gospel.
Point V: What does being equal mean?
Rom 11: For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.
We need to get a hold of the fact that without the branches, the root cannot flourish and to flourish the branches have to be of the same stock, the same breed as the root. One cannot graft sin unto the Father, there has to be the blood washed branch, completely clean, completely whole in him to be AS HE IS!
Point VI: The name of the Head of the Church is JESUS as is the NAME OF THE BODY
John 15: 5-7: I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
The "Church" in North Wales seems to have an identity crisis not realising that the Church is not a denomination, not a fellowship, not an ecumenical grouping looking to bring "churches" together, not a building - but is actually is HIM!
Point VII: If we are the branches or the lump –
how can we bear a different name?
Matt. 5:48; 19:21; II Tim. 3:16,17; Eph. 4:11,12; Phil.2:5; Eph.4:24; Col. 1:27-29; I Peter 1:16; 5:10; Heb. 6:1; 10:14; James 1:4: But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
Human endeavour cannot bring about perfection. This comes through complete death to self and this can be a process, a realisation that as ourselves we can do nothing. This is brokenness revival, the dead man being revived to live perfect as Christ Jesus!
Point VIII: We are called to be perfect - they hate this as they lie in their Calvinistic state of total depravity - an excuse for sin - in HIM, AS HIM is perfection!
II Peter 1:4; Col. 1:12; Rom. 8:30; Heb. 3:14: For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;
Being made a "partaker of Christ" means being a partaker of His Divinity. Sin cannot grasp this, a man in depravity cannot grasp this but a dead man can, the empty vessel filled, the anointing upon all this makes the man no longer a man but as the Saviour is. ("man" covers both physical genders)
Point IX: Being a partaker of Christ is perfection which is why we "perfect" the saints for the work of the ministry - not "equip"?
John 1:12-14; I Peter 1:23; I Cor 3:16-23; 2 Peter 1:3-5:
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
The Word is declaring that we are called to glory and virtue - meaning anointing as HE WAS and IS as US!
Point X: Partakers of the Divine Nature and Glorified!
On this website we proclaim the TRUE JESUS - not the "son of the gods" the new translations proclaim. We explore the blockages to revival in Wales and the importance of restoring the Christian Heritage of a once great revival nation.
