Personal Update from Peter Vandever: Great things are coming to Azusa Report

I know that content has not been coming as much as normal but I am going to tell you what I have been up to and what is about to happen. I also plant to address the well-organized and well-funded attack of the devil against me by some perverts looking for their self-preservation.

Now, before we get into that, there is something I want to address without reservation. There is a man that is making the wild claim that I am not a “real Pentecostal.” I have no idea what makes a Pentecostal to him but to most of us it means that one believes 1) Baptism of the Holy Spirit is for everyone 2) Initial physical evidence of the Baptism is a private prayer language 3) Divine healing is part of the gospel, not secondary or an afterthought 4) the end-time harvest is our mandate. Using those as the standard, I am guilty as charged.

I find this claim to be dumb and downright offensive. Anyone who has followed me for long in the last 20 years, they know I am a purebred Pentecostal, saved in the Brownsville Revival and believes in sicking the sick, casting out devils, setting the captive free and saving the lost.

This is not the first time that I have had to defend myself about this and it won’t be the last.

Defamation and Devil’s midgets

Over the last two years, there has been a well-organized and funded group of perverts that have attacked me for their own selfish reasons. They do not like Pentecostals. They do not like holiness values. They do not like Christians at large. Most of them are outspoken Agnostics. They are going to hell and they are proud of it.

I want to be very clear as I will stand before God one day for what I preach. The following is where I stand.

  • Divorce is of the devil. One man and one woman for life.
  • Flying half away around the world to use women half your age is demonic
  • Catholic Church is the whore of Babylon and Catholics will not make Heaven.
  • God speaks today and it is not always good.

I know this sounds crazy but I have needed to clear what I actually believe. I thought the theological statement was pretty clear and that I was trained in a Pentecostal school would be enough for people to understand.

These guys have allowed themselves to be a fulfill of Revelation 12:10 before us. They want to used by the devil to attack someone they do not know or understand. The good news is Jesus told that the devil’s midgets would do this.

My views are very common among Pentecostals and even among the later evangelical movement. Here is the position of the Assemblies of God on divorce. Church of God (Cleveland) and Church of God in Christ have similar position. Until 2003, pastors in the Assemblies of God were not even to be part of weddings with a divorced member.

It is laughable to think these midgets think my views are odd and not common. Most evangelicals hold to similar views and Pentecostals have led some of the top positions include John Ashcroft that is the former Attorney General. By the way, Brother Ashcroft is still married to the wife of his youth.

Judgement is at hand for the Philippines?

I have heard much said about the prophetic word that I have about the Philippines. I stand by what I preached. There is coming a series of three major disasters for the country. The first will be a biological attack of some type. The second will be an earthquake that happens in Manila. The third event will be a CAT5 hurricane that hits Metro Manila head on. All of these will be in a short window.

The onslaught of young people being killed on the streets of Manila has not been addressed by the people. God has a way of addressing national sins when the people won’t. It is much better for man to do. God’s judgement is not something you want. If you do not believe me, read Revelation about the trumps, bowls and seal. It is not pretty.

The back half of the prophecy is glorious. The Pentecostals will be the agent of grace and there will be a massive revival in the Philippines. The largest Pentecostal church in the Philippines started with one demon coming out of one boy after a massive attack against humanity. Revival is the end result of the biological and natural disasters.

It leads to a question about if the Philippines is a place that mission works should continue? For the most part, the national church, Filipinos can lead it if they want to. The problem with the Pentecostals in the Philippines is desire, not ability.

Restoration of past altars

God has been speaking to me about the restoration of past altars. We are told to not forget the goodness of God. Have you pondered the times that God met you and changed you? I still remember where I was standing on July 15, 1996 when I got saved in the Brownsville Revival. I remember when God came to me at Brownsville Revival School of Ministry listening to David Hogan preach. Do you remember the times God has reveal Himself to you?

I remember the time when the roof of IHOPKC came off in the spirit and I saw the angels of Heaven for the first time. I remember the first time I saw people come out of a wheelchair in a healing revival. I was marked by the Lord for the miraculous.

It is important to remember WHAT the Holy Spirit has done in your life and WHY He did it. Every miracle has a mandate. If He heals you, there is a reason. What you don’t give away, you will lose yourself.

What does that mean for me? This question is causing me to have many more questions about what is next. I do not know that I do not feel the mandate I once did.

Am I leaving the Philippines?

The simple truth is that I am not an immigrant. I do not see any long term plan to be in the Philippines. In fact, I had planned to be out of the country over three months ago. Everything is crying go for the Philippines. It is comfortable for me. I know how to get things done. I know the culture and have to work about it as well.

However, my heart cries no. I do not feel the anointing on the Holy Spirit on it anymore and to be honest, I am not sure I want to be here during a biological attack followed by a major earthquake and hurricane.

Everything seems to be pointing towards the United States. It is not a bad place to be. It is the greatest country on the face of the earth and all my memories in the United States are quite positive.
