When I saw the title of this video, I knew there was no chance it would be Biblically sound. Patricia King believes that God cannot work unless He has man to work through. More to the point, she says God doesn’t do much without us – He needs the hands of man.
The God of the Bible is not the hypercharismatic god of Patricia King. The god of Patricia King is subservient to man and man’s lustful, fleshly desires. A genie in a bottle who has been captured, bound, and held in prison to our whims. Does this sound like the God who parted the Red Sea and rose Jesus from the dead?
Hypercharismatics like Patricia King still don’t get it. They don’t live a crucified life of repentance; they live a life of wanton spiritual lust. It is not the Spirit of God that provokes them to seek after spiritual power and secret knowledge God never intended to share. It is not the Spirit of God that prompts them to run after worldly goods instead of Jesus Christ and Him crucified and the riches of His glory. The abundant riches of grace will never satisfy those who have a worldly heart filled with worldly hunger.
James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
God doesn’t need man to work His wonderous works, but He has chosen to work through man, that is, through the foolishness of the word preached, to save souls. There’s a big difference in God using man to share the gospel and Patricia King’s claim that God needs us in order to work.
I bow before the God of Scripture, He doesn’t bow to me. It’s not God’s will to pamper and cater my fleshly appetites and help me pave the way to Hell. It’s God’s will that I grow in the grace and the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, and that means living a crucified life of repentance.
I’m still waiting to hear hypercharismatics teach repentance and denial of self. Think I should hold my breath?
