John MacArthur’s Strange Fire, Reviewed by Charles Carrin

3. Opposition to the gospel in Asia:  “For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia: that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life.” II Corinthians 1:8. Types of opposition which Paul experienced:

4. Opposition to the Gospel in Europe: “Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you (but was let hitherto), that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.” Romans 1:13.  Reasons for the opposition:

5. Jesus’ Second Coming; Resurrection of the saints:  “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.” I Thessalonians 4:13.

6. The “thief in the night” destruction of the earth: “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day … But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night …” II Peter 3:8,10.

7. The Holy Spirit’s miraculous gifts to the Church: “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.” I Corinthians 12:1.

Having said all this, we must pray for Dr. MacArthur to accept the full New Testament message and experience the incredible blessing that Jesus promised when He said, “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you!”  Also, be sure you buy and read Dr. Kendall’s book Holy Fire. Amen!
