STRANGE FIRE CONFERENCE
OCTOBER 16-18, 2013
*** NOTE ***** OFFERED LIVESTREAM!!! TUNE IN!:
The sons of Aaron…offered strange fire before the LORD…and fire came out from the presence of the LORD and consumed them.
The Lord calls His people to honor Him, to treat Him as holy. Leviticus 10 pictures the consequences of not doing so—of offering to Him strange fire.
For the last hundred years, the charismatic movement has been offering a strange fire of sorts to the third Person of the Godhead—the Holy Spirit. And evangelical churches have chosen to be silent or indifferent on the matter. This hasn’t served the church or the Spirit of the church with honor.
So what should be our response?
Strange Fire is a conference that will set forth what the Bible really says about the Holy Spirit, and how that squares with the charismatic movement. Through keynote speakers and seminars, the conference will expose the dangers of offering strange fire—and what the church can do about it.
The questions about and controversies surrounding the charismatic movement are more than theoretical. Your view of the Holy Spirit influences your relationship with God, your personal holiness, and your commitment to the church and evangelism. And He calls for our worthy worship of Himself.
The conference will be held at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California. Click below to preregister:
