 A Stirring . . ?

Greetings in Jesus' name brothers and sisters.
Today I wanted to post just a brief testimony to tell you of the wonderful moving of God's Spirit that occurred at our Wednesday and Friday night youth service this week. For the past 9 months (since I first came on staff) I have been preaching a hard core message of Revival and Repentance to our young people. In this time we have had many powerful moves of God, but nothing like what occured this past week. I will be honest with you and say that I was not greatly anticipating Wednesday night. There are those weeks when God powerfully impresses a message upon my heart and there is just that mysterious thing known as unction burning in me. This Wednesday, however, was not like that. This week I was not really hearing from the Lord as to what to preach. There were a few scriptures that had been rolling around in my Spirit so before the service I quickly wrote them down and was "hoping for the best". I came into the service really expecting not a whole lot. After announcements were made our worship team got behind their instruments. I began to open in prayer and for some reason I just stopped and asked the young lady who plays the keyboard to pray. All of a sudden she just erupted in this heart breaking prayer of desperation. Through tears she said something like "God I'm so desperate, I can't go on another day without You. I need you so bad." And after about 3 minutes the worship team began to play. You could just feel something rising in the atmosphere. And then I saw one young man who had not attended for a few weeks. He told me before service that he had backslidden very badly and had even been arrested since I last saw him. As the presence of God began to intensify, this young man quickly made his way to the altar and began to cry out to God. I then felt impressed of the Lord that He really desired to pour out His Spirit on us that night, so I called for all who were hungry to make their way to the altar. My wife took over for our keyboard player (because she came to the altar) only to find the keys soaked with her desperate tears. And from then on the Holy Spirit took over. There was an unearthly "roar" of desperation that was coming in unison from their hearts for an hour. That night two young ladies heard what they believe to be angelic voices singing. My wife along with the young lady leading worship heard a keyboard playing even though it was turned off. The Holy Spirit came. Last night at our prayer service it happened again. Friends our GOd is moving!

Praise God for this wonderful testimony :-o

But as I read this I also felt the urge to write this also: It's absolutely essential to have a desperation for the things of God. A desperation that seems to the world and even some of the Church to be out of place or to radical. We need nights of brokeness and seeking God, and its wonderful when God bends peoples hearts for this to happen. But my question is what are we doing the next day? There is a feeling in me that God is very saddened over people who are desperate.. but not just desperate for the things of God but desperate for there own pleasures and sin.

People caring and putting their affections on things that are not God honouring during the day, and then re-focusing these affections to God at night or during a service. We need to be deeply rooted in God so that we abhor sin! Let us be grounded in a deep fear of God and His words spoken to us through scripture.

[b]James 4:4-5[/b] - You adulterous people, don't you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that the spirit he caused to live in us envies intensely?

Its an terribly thing to be jumping back and forth between seeking God and then seeking sin. God's spirit desires us to be wholly set apart for Him. Lord make us a people who are grounded in you, let us not be stoney ground hearers. But rather let us be founded on the sure foundation of Christ.

:-D Praise God, brother! In these last days, a move like that is awesome. I pray that God will pour out His Spirit freshly every time you assemble.
There is something that burns inside of me and makes we wanna come apart with happiness every time I hear of God moving elsewhere.
Praise God for His mighty works! :-D
In Christ...

Just digging around for some inspiring threads to read from the past. This one is a great testimony.

 Re: Bump

Good eye. How can we live without the Baptism?

How can we live without revival? without quickening?

May God bless you brother.

This is God's scriptural formula for Revival at work!!! ... How is it that the devil has so blinded us (especially our pastors) to it???

[1] Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
[12] Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
[13] And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.
[15] Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
[16] Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
[17] Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?
[18] Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
[19] Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen ...

[b][color=FF0000]We all need to drop our facades and just begin to cry out to our Lord how much we really NEED HIM![/color][/b]
