 our only hope for real revival

I'm kinda new to SI and I believe this site is sincerely for the glory of God. Thank you Greg and all working with you!

I believe that if we were to take a look at history we would find that true revival was brought about by the Holy Spirit. In the bible the pattern for a true move of God is found in the book of acts. They experienced the first real move of God in the history of the true church which the Lord pitched and not man. They were told by the Lord to tarry in Jerusalem until they were endued with power from on high. They were not to depart until the Holy Spirit came upon them with power.

Those men obeyed. They surrendered their all. They were filled with the Holy Spirit and turned the world upside down for Jesus. They loved not their lives unto the death. They preached the whole counsel of God. Their only real fear was God. They only lived for the favor of God.

They went everywhere the spirit would lead them to preach the gospel. They preached repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. They were full of the Holy Spirit and stayed full. They were filled in acts 2 and they were filled again in acts 4. They prayed and fasted until the Spirit told them where to go and what to do.

When people believed they were baptized. If the Holy Spirit had not fallen on them as of yet after baptism they would lay hands on them and they would be baptized in the Holy Spirit. They were transformed into holy vessels. They continued in the apostles doctrine. When two people sinned and lied against God the apostle Peter discerned it by the Holy Spirit and they fell dead at the apostle feet. Great fear to live holy and right in the sight of God was upon that new testament church and the power of God was made available to them.

If we are going to experience true revival if will be from a people who are possess of God with no other desire but for the glory of God. A people whose only agenda is God's agenda. A people full of the Holy Spirit like they experienced in the book of acts. They had more of the power of the Holy Spirit than these so called apostles of this modern day. People were healed by the very shadow of Peter as he past by. Oh, what power God gave his church on the day of Pentecost. We must be possess of that same Holy Spirit, we must return to the faith once delivered to the saints. We must be crucified unto the world and the world crucified unto us! THE HOLY GHOST MUST HAVE FULL CONTROL OF THE LORD'S PEOPLE!

Christ is all and in all. Everything that is not of Christ will be in Hell one day

Sincerely in Christ,

 Re: our only hope for real revival

To Anyone,

What was Jesus meaning from the scripture in :
Lu 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

Do you believe that it is possible for Jesus to come back to rapture out a people (called his church) who are less in the efficiency and quality of the Holy Spirit than what His church was in the beginning?
