I am using this forum for this topic because this is the most active forum.
Can we just band together to pray? I don't think there's anything else that's going to solve this country's crisis... if we don't band together sisters and brothers we will not see revival. Drugs, alcohol, adultery, partying & clubbing, pornography, fornication, divorce: this country is going to Hell!
No, the internet will not suffice. We need to meet face to face and weep before the God Almighty together for this country that God would rend the heavens!
I ask you, was not this ministry started for the purpose of revival? What has it done so far? Yes, it's encouraged people very much. The sermons are great, but they are oh so limited. Nothing will happen until we really get together. What is the point of anything else? Seriously, is there any point to anything else but God's glory being spread?
You know, if I had a car (I am only but a minor), I would be on my way to each of your houses to each of you that are praying for revival to pray with you! We need this more than anything. Oh but dear people it's so hard in this day and age to meet people who are seeking God and His glory FIRST!
Was not, though, Pentecost built upon corporate prayer? And you had each Christian together: the women, youth, and men. You know, they put aside all of their business.. if they had a job, they put it aside. Their friends (worldly), aside. They probably had quit their jobs already, but the point still stands. If we want revival it's going to take our lives! I mean that! I know some of you may have families, and so you are more chained down to your job and where you live. Some of you are in college, and are chained down to where you go to school. Oh we could list a huge list of excuses, but it won't cut it. It's going to take some major sacrificing if we want God to move!
I may be alone in this but I just can't find anywhere around me to find people to pray with! What a tragedy! Most Christians I have talked with don't see a need for revival. I don't understand it! Their all asleep though!
You know, it seems sometimes on this forum that we seem to argue or 'debate' over issues in the church and whatnot, constantly. But it seems so unhealthy. I mean, at least compared to the mission of this ministry.
So I ask you all to pray about this. I am not supposing you all quit your jobs and whatnot like that, I am only saying that if you want revival, it's going to cost you your life and all of the entertainment that you have in it and supply yourself with. I have been guilty of this though, I must admit. Television, even books can just zip you away into another world. Anything that just takes your focus away from God is something we need to denounce. Is this too radical? Yeah, it is. It's too radical for mostly everyone, and that's why we don't got revival. I don't claim to be mature in the Faith, but I do claim to have a desire to see God's glory spread throughout this country and world for that matter!
And, I'd like to say another thing. I believe when or if we get together, any of us, we need to meet and pray, and then if the Lord leads us to, I believe that we should then go out into the streets and proclaim Christ and him crucified so we can as Ian Paisley said, "put some feet to those prayers"!
It's not only a matter if getting together to pray, it's getting together to preach as well! Two-fold! You put the two of them together and we can we turn the world up-side down I promise you!
