 The need of a Personal Revival and Standing up for Truth

Recently my spiritual life has been getting so dry that I need a revivial in my life!

Re 2:4 - Show Context
Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.

In a world that is slowly going down hill with house prices falling, everything getting more expensive and people getting more wicked we need Jesus desperatly!

D L Moody always used to say if you want a revivial draw a circle and start with you! or something along those lines

2Sa 1:27 - Show Context
"How the mighty have fallen, And the weapons of war perished!"

This could represent any of us, we are all capable even strong christians of going down hill.

Yacov Prasch in this sermon was talking about standing up for truth

He was talking about if the belt of truth is fallen their is no righteosness,
Jesus is the solid rock and all other ground is sinking sand, the need for a personal revivial and standing up for truth are the same thing.

 Re: The need of a Personal Revival and Standing up for Truth

Psalm 27v13, 'I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living'

Sometimes, our seeming dryness can be caused by seeing only the evil in the land. And let's face it, can we see it.

But, do not lose heart. We are not God. Seems obvious, silly statement, to say the least.

But we want things to go our way 100% of the time. I do anyway.

Also in James 4v8 it tells us to draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

It does not say we will feel, see or hear anything. Just draw near. He will meet you.

He said so.

God bless.

 Re: The need of a Personal Revival and Standing up for Truth

Amen Preach Deltadom!
The definition of revival according to Webster:
1. restoration to life, consciousness, vigor, strength, etc.
2. restoration to use, acceptance, or currency: the revival of old customs.
3. a new production of an old play.
4. a showing of an old motion picture.
5. an awakening, in a church or community, of interest in and care for matters relating to personal religion.
6. an evangelistic service or a series of services for the purpose of effecting a religious awakening: to hold a revival.
7. the act of reviving.
8. the state of being revived.
9. Law. the reestablishment of legal force and effect.

Most don't see revival as being people conducting themselves in how God was honored in the past history. They want change, that change being drifting further from God and HIS ways and toward self.

The main objective for liberals right now is that all people would be silenced in speaking HIS name in a public setting and all people have the right not to hear HIS name because they say it is offensive to them. Many of these people profess to be members of HIS church and desiring revival. They won't openly admit they support this agenda; but their heart reveal their ignorance by their silence or is revealed by those who see their support to the earthly powers that grants these wishes in the silencing of or the compromise of laws that would restrict any mention of his name in public. They masquerade themselves as what?
Titus 1:16-2:1
16 They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.


Prov 29:2
2 When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice;
when the wicked rule, the people groan.

It might advantageous for these liberal minded people to read God's Word and find out why the people are groaning!!

He controls what?
Everything!

Phil 3:19-21
20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who,[b] by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control,[/b] will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

 Re: The need of a Personal Revival and Standing up for Truth

Standing for the truth of God's word is NOT, I repeat not going out to the street corner and getting into peoples face and telling them that they are living in sin. Your anger will not produce the righteousness of God, Rather they that are led by the Spirit of God, THEY are the Sons of God. What does that mean? That simply means that being a son one has learnt to be obedient and has subjected himself to the Father, in other words, he doesn't do his own will but the Will of the Father.

Since no one really has the truth because we come from varied backgrounds and theology, if one were to really take the narrow path, one must forsake all that he has learnt. That means forsaking everything that your Mother and Father taught you, forsaking all theology that we have accumulated over the years and be completely empty that the LORD would fill us with good things. Things that truly matter in the Spirit.

A quick way to get really empty from all religious idea and thought, is to see Jesus high and lifted up. I think that would cause a man to be completely undone.

This is not a matter of right and wrong, it's a matter of Truth. Right and Wrong , Good and Evil all come from the same tree, were all hanging around the wrong tree yet the tree in the midst of the garden no one is interested in because there is no beauty that we should desire it, there is nothing attractive about it. There is no pride that would balloon one's ego. It's swells with Truth, yet we don't want to stand for that kind of truth. We'd rather stand for the truth of whats Good or Bad, we are still eating off that tree.

To stand for that tree is death, but the gift that is in the midst of the garden that is eternal life, the way the truth and the life, few there be that find it.

Lets stop standing for what we have been taught, rather stand for what has been deposited or invested in us by the Spirit of God. How do we know what is Spirit and what is flesh? We know because the letter killeth but the Spirit giveth life. If we are obeying the letter or trying to obey the letter, then we are not standing for the truth.

Jude said that we should contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints. That faith is Jesus Christ in whom all the law and the prophets have been fulfilled in. Our faith being set on Him and Him alone, and not in any system of man, to bring us to salvation is the truth that we need to contend for, because the word of God is on trial today like never before. Men have devised systems to change this faith into lasciviousness, and different kinds of lusts, because when one is putting their faith into a system of law keeping, a host of sins become manifest, and the results is death.

When this topic of "Standing for the truth" comes into discussion, there is much to consider, one being to ascertain in our own minds is what Pilate said to Jesus, "What is Truth?".

Brother Compliments perhaps we are both right. You are referring to the source and I was referring to the results of the source in a changed life. Jesus and him alone can save. After he saves us, a drastic change takes place in that person’s life, if he truly is saved. He stands for truth that he never stood for in the past, as in how the Apostle Paul did an about face from silencing Christians to preaching the gospel to the King while in prison, establishing the churches throughout the region, praying for his fellow man to have that same change that he experienced. Teaching that stealing, murder, cheating, refusing to be silenced by the goverment, preaching that and all kinds of sin were of the devil and once a person surrendered their heart to the Lord through the Holy Spirit’s power they would be radically changed from what they once were. Not by our power or our might, but by his spirit.
