I wonder if this is why Paul said we are a peculiar people? Doubt it.
I have officially labelled this spirit the “Shubba Bubba Spirit”. Mainly because I’ve seen it around Sydney as well, and people are stuck in this spirit fetish, calling out “DADDY!” to God and acting immaturely. (Not to mention this spirit likes it when we rhyme or play with alliteration.)
The Holy Spirit calls us to maturity and to get off milk and onto meat. However, this continual state leaves you only dependant on ‘experiences’ and starves Christians from the truth of the Word of God. This so-called outpouring is keeping people in a state of drunkenness that I find actually repels people from God and confuses others in the body of Christ. People who don’t have these experiences feel condemned and think that God doesn’t love them.
Anyways. Here’s the final clip I’d like to leave you with.
What are your thoughts on this Shubba Bubba Spirit Outpouring? Will this really lead people to the Lord? Will this help grow the body of Christ? Is this of God or not? (I don’t think so, but I have had Him minister to me more strongly in these times among such people then He usually does!)
Saw these from the ETP which I thought was worth discussing here: http://endtimespropheticwords.wordpress.com/2009/04/30/new-ecstatics-the-oddest-kind-of-street-witness-ever/
