Unfortunatly I have a prior commitment on 4 June, and what I say I say without rancor, or pride, or rebuke, but I have a suggestion: throw the clock away, rip up the timetable.
say "the Revival conference begins on June 2nd at 3:30 pm and ends, God willing on June 4th 9:30 PM...maybe". "God willing the Holy Ghost will be doing the Moderating and Jesus will Pastor this meeting". "ALL welcome".....
in my humble opinion, as God leads, thats all the brochure should say, no list of speakers, no description of the other "10000 conferences", but describes itself as somehow different with these words:"The 'Revival Conference' is not to be just another conference but a honest, sincere, earnest plea for the desperate need of revival."
Not meaning to question the Godly sincerity of all you beloved saints, but its really no different when you have this man speaking from 3:30 to 4;30 and that man speaking from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm...with neat boxes of time. I bless God that you all are meeting there with open hearts,and a deep sincere longing for revival, but would to God you smash clocks and timetable, ask God the Holy Ghost to Moderate, beg Jesus to Pastor, get on our knees, get on faces, and unless a man or woman has the Annointing, would they get up to speak the Word of God.
Believe me, when Jesus is running the meeting, there will be NO disorder, No confusion.
Humbly, just a suggestion for next time, just call the meeting "Waiting on God", invite burnt out, dead to self workers and worms of Christ, forget holding it in a church building, get a pasture (or campground)somewhere (that people can find) rent a big tent, encourage folks to bring their own tents, IF they go to sleep, say the meeting starts on the 3rd of ....and we [b]might[/b] finish on the 7th, but Glory to God, we could be in that area for six months. No TV cameras, no "god-tv", like that other god-forsaken stain, no recorders...and three months before you begin, assemble 3 to 7 saints to committ to 90 days of prayer, and besceehing God to pour water on a dry and thirsty ground.
If you want to try that type of ministry, count me in, It would be JOY inexpressible....you know why? Because we wouldnt KNOW how God would move in His Sovereignty, because we cast all our hopes and longings on Jesus, and Jesus never fails.
Just my leading and burden. I beg you, dont take this as an admonishment, I just been listening to what happened in revivals of old, and God is the same today as He was yesterday.
I love you Greg, and the Lord loves you, neil
