REVIVAL... TOTALLY AWESOME!!
It is my delightful joy to continue preaching to you this series of messages about Revival.
The title of my message today is, "Revival…Totally Awesome!"
My scripture reading is from Psalm 72:18 & 19, and it says, "Praise be to the Lord God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds. Praise be to his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen and Amen."
There are many different sayings in our world today:
- "Simply out of this world;"
- "If it feels good, do it."
Then the sayings changed from the 70s and 80s, and then to the 90s.
- "Go for it"
- "Groovy Man"
- "Wow, Radical Dude"
But, there is one saying that I think we all can relate to and that is the phrase, "Totally Awesome!" Somebody may eat at a very nice restaurant, have a great meal, and then come out and say, "Wow, that restaurant and meal were Totally Awesome!" Someone may go to a nice fellowship, have a great time with family and friends, and then leaving that fellowship they would say, "Man, I had a great time it was so much fun…that was, Totally Awesome!" But, what do people mean when they say, ‘Totally Awesome?’ They mean that the event they are attending is: (1) Extraordinary (2) Wonderful or, (3) Amazing.
THIS IS HOW IT IS WITH GOD IN THE SPIRITUAL!
The things that God does are:
And, the world-wide REVIVAL that God is going to send will be, "Totally Awesome!" The Bible tells us in Psalm 72: 18, "The God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds." Everything that God does is, MARVELOUS!! He is, "Totally Awesome!!"Let’s take a closer look at some of the acts that God will do during a Revival!
THE SALVATION THAT GOD OFFERS DURING REVIVAL IS TOTALLY AWESOME!!
God knew, according to His own great unchanging laws, that we were lost sinners. His compassionate heart was moved and He said, "I must provide a Savior." God perfected what we call the plan of salvation and, "Gave His only Son…" (Jn 3:16). There is no need to debate it or argue about it…it is God’s will for ALL to be saved. During a Divine move of the Holy Spirit and revival…souls will be saved.
THE HOLY SPIRIT AND HIS WORK DURING REVIVAL IS TOTALLY AWESOME!!
I have preached many revivals and I have seen many individuals run to the altars and repent of their sins. I have seen men, women, boys and girls feel the convicting power of the Holy Spirit and come to Christ. Can you remember the time that the Holy Spirit comforted you and convicted you of your sins? I have seen healings and have been healed myself. I have seen demonic spirits released in Jesus Name. During a revival, the Holy Spirit will move by His power and will do marvelous works.
THE WORLD-WIDE REVIVAL THAT GOD IS GOING TO SEND WILL BE TOTALLY AWESOME!!
Don’t miss out!! Get Ready!! Prepare your hearts and lives!! Acts 2:17, "In these last days God will pour out His Spirit upon all people." GET READY for a mighty outpouring of His mighty Spirit. God Can and God Will transform lives at anytime; however, during a mighty Revival there will be a powerful and massive wave of souls being saved. God said, "I WILL pour out my Spirit upon all people."
GOD WANTS YOU TO BE REVIVED!! GOD WANTS YOU TO BE ON-FIRE FOR HIM.
The very first recorded revival and first outpouring of the Holy Spirit is found in Acts 2:4, "All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them." What I’m talking about is a true and Divine visitation of the Holy Spirit. When the early believers were filled with the power of God, they changed their world for Christ…WHY? Because of the power of God in their lives. This world-wide revival that is coming will change lives, cities, and countries.
GET READY!! IT’S COMING!!
If we will call on God, pray, believe, and ask Him to bless us and then expect Him to do it…He will bless and He will send a world-wide Revival!!
Yes, when the Holy Spirit:
- Convicts and points souls to the Savior,
- When He comforts us in our sorrow,
- When He strengthens us in our weakness and heals our diseases,
- When He guides us along life’s way…we can say…
LET US PRAY:
Father, I pray for everyone listening to this message today. I pray that You would forgive them of their sins and that they would live for You. I ask this for personal revival in their life in Jesus name, Amen.
I close by saying this; I encourage you to accept Jesus as the Lord of you life today and live for Him. God Bless!
