This is another broadcast message I got on whatsapp sometime in April. I am sharing now because there couldn’t be a better time.
We need to build our spiritual life. It is of utmost importance. As you read through, please make a decision to take your relationship with God more seriously and get to know Him.
I pray that God will give us the grace and strength we need to build a relationship with Him.
Ask those who saw the revival of 1930s, 1970s and 1980s, they will tell you why we are crying over this “firelessness” we are seeing in our generation of believers.
John Knox prayed: “Lord, Give me Scotland or I die”…
St Patrick, a rugged believer that Brought even dead animals and trees back to life prayed: “God, Give me souls or give me nothing else”….
During the Hebrides revival prayed:” Lord, If you will not use us, please, kill us”…
The brethren from England who brought the Fire from Azusa Street revival gathered everyday under the terrible cold.
Their only prayer topic was: “Lord, give us men that will spread Your Fire in the streets of England”.
During the Indonesia Revival, those hungry hearts were seen praying day and night: “Lord, The harvest is ripe… If it pleases You, please use us”.
One prayer that was common during the days of William Seymour was: “Lord, this is another day that hell must lose men and women. Please, we are here use us”.
Paul said:” Woe to me if I preach not the gospel”.
Rachel said to her husband, Jacob: “Give me children or I die”, but unfortunately, our churches are filled today with people who are not ashamed of spiritual barrenness.
We are asking “God give me money. God give me spouse. God give me visa”.
Where do we see believers again that will be praying and fasting, and when you listen to them, you will be hearing:” Lord, let Your Fire fall in my community and let their be revival”?
When Paul encountered Christ, he fell and rose. What He asked was:” Lord, what will You have me do”.
But today, when we fall under anointing, we stand to start expecting marriage proposals and visas and employment letters.
This generation of members in our churches have not had a genuine encounter with the Man of Calvary.
No generation has carried Bibles like us without opening it. No generation is materially driven like ours and we expect the land to obey us.
Jesus said, pray to the Father that He brings His Kingdom on earth.
Let’s build up our spiritual life because it is very necessary. If you miss heaven you can never miss hell. Think about it. Hell isn’t a pretty place.
Do the work of an evangelist now by sharing this. Have u ever wonderedwhat would have happened if we treat the Holy Bible the way we treat our mobile phones?
And we really can’t live without the BIBLE.
GOD help us to get it on time. Amen.
