God Can and God Will Send a Mighty Revival!
It is my delightful joy to continue preaching to you this series of messages about Revival.
My scripture reading is from Acts 2:17 & Acts 2:39, and it says, "In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people." Acts 2:39, "The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off-for all whom the Lord our God will call."
There are many promises in God's Word; just to hear them thrills my soul. From Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21, the entire Bible is full of the promises of God. Hebrews 6:18 says, "That it is impossible for God to lie."
God has given us 2 things in Hebrews 6:17
- His promise
GOD WILL KEEP HIS PROMISES!
Acts 2:17 says, "And it shall come to pass in the last days, God says, I will pour out my spirit on all people." I believe that we are living in the last days! I also believe that the greatest revival in history is yet to happen! What I'm talking about is a world-wide revival! If we will open our hearts to God…GOD CAN and GOD WILL send a MIGHTY REVIVAL in Jesus Name. I believe it…because God said it, and that settles it….No questions asked…it is done!
GOD WILL KEEP HIS PROMISES.
Church, I'm believing God for a mighty move of His Spirit and for souls to be saved globally. If we are going to have a global revival, there are some steps that individuals are going to have to take.
THE FIRST UPWARD STEP FOR REVIVAL IS SEPARATION!
When I speak of separation, I mean to be separate, to be different from the world.
- By separation, I mean that there are some places to which a Christian cannot go and must not go.
- By separation, I mean that there are some things to which a Christian cannot do and must not do.
- By separation, I mean that there are some things to which a Christian cannot say and must not say.
I just can't understand how some think that they can live like the devil and think that they are on their way to heaven. My friends, the world is looking at you! One must remember that if you are saved then you are a representative of Jesus Christ. It's not enough to just go to church…In other words….We must live according to God's Word.
THE SECOND UPWARD STEP FOR REVIVAL IS DEDICATION!
The 21st century church needs to be more concerned about DEDICATION rather than SOCIALIZATION. Some may say, "Well, I just don't have time for God." Listen, if you are too busy for God, then you are too busy. Here is a strange paradox in 21st century modern life. We have more time-saving devices than ever before, but less time for God. If we are going to be a part of this massive world-wide revival, we will need to make a vow to ourselves that we will make time for the spiritual things of God.
THE THIRD UPWARD STEP FOR REVIVAL IS GLORIFICATION!
Christ promises to share His heavenly glory with all who trust and live for Him. On the isle of Patmos, John saw what was waiting for him…He saw the glories of Heaven. The sight was so glorious that John didn't want to stay on earth. He cried out for Jesus to come and take him home. If you and I knew all that is waiting for us in Heaven, we too would want to leave this sinful world and go to be glorified with Jesus in Heaven.
AS I STATED BEFORE…GOD WILL KEEP HIS PROMISES.
And one day He will share His glory with us who believe. And, I am believing God for a mighty move of His Spirit globally.
GOD CAN AND GOD WILL…GET READY! It's Coming…Glory to God!
Do you really want it? Would you like to see unsaved loved ones saved? Believe God for it…Believe God for a Mighty world-wide REVIVAL in Jesus name.
These steps are upward steps for a massive global revival like this world has never seen before.
- The Step of Separation
- The Step of Dedication
- The Step of Glorification
REVIVAL…GET READY, IT'S COMING!
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 and believe You for revival. 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!
FOR YOU TO CONSIDER:
- Can the 21st century church have the same power as the 1st century church?
- Do miracles happen today as they did in the book of Acts?
- Can a revival really save our world?
- When Jesus comes, will you be ready?
