The Three Big Splits
Luke11:16-18 King James Version (KJV)
And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven.
But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them,Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.
If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.
The three main UK Pentecostal Denominations are split 3 ways amongst themselves. They have moved far away from the message coming through George Jeffreys being heard on this sight. By the accounts given to me, it is clear Elim are a rebellious movement (except the Remnant) who not only rejected their founder but more seriously rejected the message coming him.
Albert Edsor gives the main difference between the Elim of yesterday to the Elim of today and that is over the Word of God. Instead of a being a man of many versions, of higher critical persuasion with their origins in Egypt, Jeffreys was a man of one book.
He was a man of one Book - The Authorised Version of the Bible, which he loved and treasured and from which he derived great spiritual strength.
The following pages on this website were written in July 2007 at a time when the splits were beginning to become obvious. Cults like activities were coming to the fore with a thirst to provide entertainment rather than full commitment to God. The rejection of the inerrant (without error) Word of God was having its impact as well as charismatic influences alien to the founders visions.
The three splits in all the UK Pentecostal Denominations are now clear to see:
The Higher Critics coming out of the training institutions, I having personal experience of this at Elim Bible College that mysteriously became Regents Theological College under a University the AOG had warned about in 1924, a depiction of the Egyptian God Thoth at the same time depicted on the wall of the College Library weighing the souls of the dead.
Oh! How the College had changed from the preaching of the Foursquare Gospel given so well through Elim’s God given founder.
The Toronto/Lakeland brigade that have now become “purpose driven”, a far cry from the great nights of conviction the founders projected under the anointing of the Holy Ghost.
The traditionalists who are fighting on in there, traditionalists who battle constantly against those living the flesh life of choice –choice between believing what they choose rather than live the fully surrendered life of the traditionalist.
Oh! for a return to the landmark and a rejection of the “new thing” taken out of context, from the Alexandrian scriptures of the modernists.
Proverbs 22:28 King James Version (KJV)
Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set
