Jesus Christ warned us:
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.
These two scam artists perverted the words of the living God (Jeremiah 23/36) and they managed to deceive a great number of people with their fake "Welsh Outpouring". People travelled from all over the UK to see the unholy spectacle, and it was spreading like gangrene to other churches, both in Wales and other parts of the UK.
None of the alleged healings and miracles were ever verified and all the claims made by Taylor et al were hot air and hype. Furthermore, Taylor and Parsons qualifications for the ministry were suspect. There were many tell-tale signs that these two men were false, and yet people continued to believe in them – preferring to believe a lie.
If these two clowns managed to deceive many so called “Christians”, what will be the outcome when the Antichrist appears? This man will be an evil genius indwelt by Satan himself who will come with wicked deception along with lying sins and wonders. He will make Taylor and Parsons look like mere infants in comparison. God will send judgement - and that judgement will be a strong delusion upon those who reject the truth and prefer to believe what is false.
And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming. The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2/8-12)
Those true Christians who were genuinely fooled by the farce known as the "Welsh Outpouring" do need to take stock now and learn a vital lesson. We cannot afford to simply accept any old rubbish that comes along in the guise of Christianity – OUR ETERNAL DESTINY DEPENDS ON ACCEPTING TRUTH AND REJECTING ERROR.
JESUS CHRIST IS THE TRUTH AND HIS WORD IS TRUTH (John 17/17).
The Bible tells us to test the spirits:
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error. (1 John 4/1-6)
You may say that Taylor and his cohorts did confess that Jesus Christ came in the flesh…. Yes they did didn’t they? This is why the whole counsel of God is so very important:
The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever. (Psalm 119/160)
Seek the LORD while he may be found;
call upon him while he is near;
let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
let him return to the LORD, that he may have compassion on him,
and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55/6-9)
But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death. (Revelation 21/8)
