The Distinguishing Marks of a Work of the Spirit of God (Une oeuvre du Saint-Esprit : ses vrais signes)
What Christian doesn't pray for revival? What believer does not want to see God act with power in his generation?
But, how to assess the situation when an unusual spiritual movement occurs? How do you know if this is a genuine awakening of divine grace, or if they are just deceptive signs and wonders from the evil one?
Correct assessment is no easy task. We have so little experience of these things; the devil has such a great trick; the stakes are of such paramount importance! No one wants to miss out on a true blessing from God, but neither does anyone want to be fooled by a deceptive experience. What to do?
Some experiments and evidence don't prove anything, he says, but there are sure signs. It also shows what the concrete implications are for the child of God.
A deeply thought-out book, anchored in the Bible, but eminently open to the daily life of Christians.
Jonathan Edwards was pastor during several great revivals of the past. In these pages, he brings his reader back to the Bible. He shows her what an infallible guide she is, even in this area.
