A REAL AND LASTING REVIVAL

A REAL AND LASTING REVIVAL

I am glad of any signs of life, even if they should be feverish and transient, and I am slow to judge any well intended movement, but I am very fearful that many so called revivals in the long run wrought more harm than good. A species of religious gambling has fascinated many men, and given them a distaste for the sober business of true godliness.
But if I would nail down counterfeits upon the counter, I do not therefore undervalue true gold. Far from it. It is to be desired beyond measure that the Lord would send a real and lasting revival of spiritual life.
We need a work of the Holy Spirit of a supernatural kind, putting power into the preaching of the Word, inspiring all believers with heavenly energy, and solemnly affecting the hearts of the careless, so that they turn to God and live. We would not be drunk with the wine of carnal excitement, but we would be filled with the Spirit. We would behold the fire descending from heaven in answer to the effectual fervent prayers of righteous men. Can we not entreat the Lord our God to make bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the people in this day of declension and vanity? C.H.Spurgeon

    We are in the terrible days of a compromised church here in the United States of America, land of the mixed multitudes from the world over and name that god who all frolic here by the power of Satan. Can Revival come? OR, is it happening right here and on a thousand or more points of His great light that leads men and women to the way, the truth and THE LIFE?
    You and I, God calls in His mysterious way to do His will. We don’t need to pitch a tent nor advertise. We simply must hear His call down through the ages that impels us to greater duty, fuller sacrifice of our dead self, for His Glory, and work at it in the calling and power of The Spirit. GOD MAKES REVIVAL THROUGH YOU! NOW…if you hear His call. HERE BEGINS A REVIVAL!
