The Expulsive Power of a New Affection

The Expulsive Power of a New Affection

Football versus church attendance? Yes, more people are in church on a single Sunday Morning in the United State than attend all college and professional football games in a year. And that, dear friend, is no accident. God is gaining. No football game could be as exciting as what He is doing, if only we could SEE what is happening!

Let me give a few details about how the Spirit of the Living God in Jesus Christ is causing multiplication beyond all comparisons in Korea, China, the Soviet Union, etc.

Seeing this any lair person would have to agree that multiplication it normal WHEREVER THERE IS THE EXPULSIVE POWER OF A NEW AFFECTION.

Our newspapers do not yield us a clue about the quiet yet irreversible success story of the Gospel all over the world. The growth is due to the expulsive power of a new affection.

In the last few weeks, for example, the "Sandinista" government in Nicaragua is waking up to the fact that it MUST repress the rapidly growing evangelical movement before it gets as strong as it is in Guatemala. And threats and beatings increase for the evangelical pastors  whose lamb like power is invincible! It is the expulsive power of new affection.

The Chinese have already discovered this  but too late. China is fairly riddled" with unwanted Christian gatherings in homes. Can you imagine how China expects to stop 50 million (or so) Christian from praying anywhere but in a few hundred Government authorized church buildings? Don't they know they are dealing with the expulsive power of a new affection?

The Russians, too. They unhappily admit that 156 different Christian bodies in the Soviet Union amount to 107 million people doggedly classifiable as Christians. That's 36% of their entire population! What a tragedy for the Communists. It is the expulsive power of a new affection!

And this is what we have behind us as we try to spread vision to others!
