Revival of Cleansing


by David Wilkerson  [May 19, 1931 – April 27, 2011]

All the prophets saw the end times and prophesied of the gathering of a separated, holy people who would have great understanding in the Word of the Lord. Daniel heard great things from God but “understood not” (Daniel 12:8). However, he saw a day coming when a purified, tried and tested remnant would understand; there would be a last-day company full of wisdom and discernment in the things of God. “Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand” (Daniel 12:10).

Isaiah deplored the spiritual blindness of backslidden Israel. He said, “They err in vision, they stumble in judgment” (Isaiah 28:7). The little discernment they once had was destroyed by their lusts. But Isaiah prophesied of a day in which “the deaf [shall] hear the words . . . the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness. . . . They shall sanctify my name . . . and shall fear the God of Israel. They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine” (Isaiah 29:18, 23-24).

I believe the last-day revival so many preach about is a revival of cleansing. If the work of the Holy Spirit is to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, then it is certain that in a great Holy Ghost outpouring there will be powerful waves of conviction, and a careless, indulgent Church will be shaken and forced to face her sins.

While multitudes of Christians chase after signs and miracles and flock to teachers of success and prosperity, God has been calling out a “wilderness people” who are consumed with hunger for more of Christ.

Right now a glorious company is coming forth! One day God began to stir their hearts and they became disillusioned with all the hypocrisy and shame. They got into the Word of God and saw for themselves what His ultimate purposes are. They put on Christ’s robe of righteousness by faith, submitted to the claims of Christ, and decided to walk alone, if necessary, to be wholly obedient to Him. They set themselves to hear and understand the Lord’s will. They began to see things in the Spirit and were made to understand that the end of all things is at hand. To these, the Word of the Lord has come!

“Christ is coming! Repent, for the day of the Lord is near! Lay aside every besetting sin and set your affection on things above! Do not partake in the empires and dreams of men. Forsake it all and go out to meet Him.”

That word is being proclaimed loud and clear!

    Readers of your blog should be forgiven for being a little confused, and the above quote is an example of why this is so.On the one hand , Adam’s full preterist views are given much endorsement and exposure, and on the other hand , we see quotes like the above , which reflects NT teaching that Christ is coming again soon. We have both points of the pendulum , so which is it?.

    • I’m sorry mondoray but i don’t see the conflict. While i cannot speak for Adam i do feel safe in saying i’m sure he believes the Lord will return…what gave you the idea that he doesn’t?

  2. HI PJ
    Well hopefully Adam will respond and articulate where he stands on this , but I wouldn’t be counting on it . Having spent some time perusing his blog I can only say that I am quite shocked by what I read, full preterism is a hope destroying eschatology to say the least .
    Perhaps the following statement from his site may set of some alerts.

    2. Everything every New Testament writer expected to happen, happened exactly as and when they expected it would — within their lifetime — as they were guided into all truth and told the things that were to come by the Holy Spirit (John 16:13).
    end quote

    Full preterists believe that there is nothing that has yet to be fulfilled, and this includes the Lords return.

    • I believe if you are really interested in Adam’s views on eschatology he would be glad to answer your questions mondoray.

      If im not mistaken you can contact him through his blog, Perusing Truth, here

      As far as Adam claiming to be a full preterist…you’ll have to ask him. Many Christians, like myself, do not wear any eschatology “tags” and just look at one issue at a time, making up their minds as to it already being fulfilled or not (yet) fulfilled. In my humble opinion this is best and denotes wisdom rather then lumping oneself into a single group.

      Some might consider me a preterist based upon my beliefs on certain issues and prophecies. Particularly as pertaining to certain sections of matthew 24. But on other issues, i still see them as occurring in the future. God’s word doesn’t mention “tags” so i don’t believe we should use them either…

      Full preterists believe that there is nothing that has yet to be fulfilled, and this includes the Lords return.

      Like i mentioned previously, i’ve never read where Adam denies the future returning of the Lord.

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
