Challenging Words from a Dead Man
We need a revivaldeep, widespread, and generalin the power of the Holy Spirit. It is either a general revival or the dissolution of the church, of the home, and of the state. A revival, new life from God, is the curethe only cure. Revival will halt the awful tide of immorality and unbelief. Mere argument will not do it. But a wind from heaven, a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit, a true God-sent revival will. Atheism, higher criticism, Christian Science, Spiritualism, Universalism, all will go down before the outpouring of the Spirit of God. It was not discussion but the breath of God to send the current radical non-Christians to keep those non-believers of old company. I believe that breath from God is coming. The great need of today is a general revival. The need is clear. It allows no honest difference of opinion. What then must we do? Pray. Take up the psalmists prayer, Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You? (Ps. 85:6). Pray Ezekiels prayer, Come from the four winds, O breath [breath of God], and breath on these slain, that they may live (Ezek. 37:9). Hark I hear a noise! Behold a shaking! I can almost see the great living army rising to their feet. Will we not pray and pray and pray until the Spirit comes, and God revives His people?
May these words from R.A. Torrey be a challenge to you. Lets continue to band together as brothers and sisters and pray, pray, pray WITHOUT ceasing! Amen!
