Proclaiming the Gospel and Encouraging Biblical Discernment
Global Revival or Global Deception?—10 Critical Warnings From the Titanic to the Church
by Warren B. Smith (NewAgeToAmazingGrace.com)
Who doesn’t want true revival—one filled with godly sorrow, heartfelt repentance, and powerfully met with God’s forgiveness, mercy, and amazing grace? But the word true is key. The revival must not be unduly influenced by our spiritual Adversary for his own deceptive purposes. True revival must be genuinely God-given and inspired by our One True God and His One True Holy Spirit.
Before its sinking, the RMS Titanic was thought to be “invincible” and “unsinkable” and was viewed with widespread confidence and positive regard. People felt they would be safe on that big and mighty ship. What could possibly go wrong? Today, revival is seen in much the same way. It brings up similar notions of invincibility, “unsinkability,” and positive regard. People feel safe when they are part of an extensive and mighty revival. What could possibly go wrong? And it is in this light that the Titanic can serve as an example to the church today. This booklet contains ten critical warnings as the church longs for revival yet moves into dangerous waters.

"Ray was a man who loved life, loved people, and loved God. His tenderhearted manner touched all who came to know him. In addition to his researching and writing, he enjoyed spending time over a good cup of coffee with friends, listening to music, and being in nature. Ray had a zeal for truth and was passionate in his desire to help others find and know truth as well. He loved God’s Word and used it as a measuring rod in all he did and believed. Ray’s research and writing ministry impacted tens of thousands of people throughout the world, and he will be sorely missed by many. He has left an indelible imprint on the Christian church that will be remembered for years to come.
