16 days until the Atlanta, Georgia Revival Conference Scholarship is blind to spiritual truth till He reveals. Worship is idolatry till He inspires. Preaching is powerless if it be not a demonstration of His power. Prayer is vain unless He energizes. Human resources of learning and organization, wealth and enthusiasm, reform and philanthropy, are worse than useless if there be no Holy Spirit in them.The Church always fails at the point of self-confidence. When the Church is run on the same lines as a circus, there may be crowds, but there is no Shekinah! That is why prayer is the test of faith and the secret of power. The Spirit of God travails in the prayer life of the soul.The carnal can argue, but it is the Spirit that convicts. Education an civilize, but it is being born of the Spirit that saves. The energy of the flesh can run bazaars, organize amusements, and raise millions, but it is the presence of the Holy Spirit that makes a Temple of the Living God. The root trouble of the present distress is that the Church has more faith in the world and the flesh than in the Holy Spirit. Things will get no better till we get back to His realized presence and power. The breath of the four winds would turn death into life and dry bones into mighty army, but it only comes by prayer. -Samuel ChadwickFREE EVENT TO ATTEND, PRE-REGISTER HERE:

Prayer is vain unless He energizes.
It is my prayer and will continue right up to and beyond the 21st of this month to be my prayer that God will send a revival in our thinking. How can there be revival, how can there be transformation without the "renewing of the mind?" See you in Atlanta!
