Saints, the Antichrist spirit in the lukewarm church is Anti-Tongues and just claims “rest.”
The problem is, their version of rest, is passive and lazy.
The Bible says tongues is the rest.
I have had many of lukewarm believer try to tell me that praying in tongues is striving and here is what i say to that: You lying religious devil! Get thee hence in Jesus’ name!
Let me say this, if you don’t have strong praying in tongues in the believer’s and the corporate assembly, you are not an apostle and your church is not an Apostolic Church.
“For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people, to whom he said, “This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest,” and “This is the refreshing: yet they would not hear,”” Isaiah 28:11-12.
“Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me,” Romans 15:30.
Church, the word for strive in the above is συναγωνίζομαι, sunagōnizomai, soon-ag-o-nid’-zom-ahee in the Greek. It is where we get our modern word for agonize from, and it means to strive together with to struggle in company with, i.e. (figuratively) to be a partner (assistant): – strive together with. (see Strong’s #G4865.)
It is called agonizing prayer and it brings heaven to earth and the apostates want nothing to do with it!
