Month: October 2010

Holy Ghost Revival

How I desperately long to see the presence of God change my heart as well as the hearts of His people. We are under great expectation for our meetings at the end of the month. My desire is to see permanent changes as the temporary fixes seem to band-aid our true issues. A true Holy Ghost Revival will wash all the trash in our lives onto the shores. Lord, send it is my prayer. I wanted to share a quote with you as it was shared on Sunday.

243    In the Welsh revival, when the great leader of that Welsh revival… They said to him, said, “You’ll have a bunch of fanaticism.”
The only words that he would speak, was, “Relax, and let the Holy Spirit have Its way; relax, and let the Holy Spirit.” Not one speck of fanaticism raised up. No, they were all truly borned of the Spirit.
Holy Ghost revival, O God, send It upon my little church, Father. Send It upon this waiting people. As we sing that old song, Father, so many times:
They were in the upper building,
They were all with one accord,
When the Holy Ghost descended
That was promised by our Lord.
O Lord, send Your power just now,
Lord, send Your power just now;
Yes, O Lord, send Your power just now
And baptize every one.

William Marrion Branham

I encourage you to expect the unexpected. Do something different as they did during the Welsh Revival. Testify and tell people how your fire got lit. Surrender your whole life to Christ and allow Him to fill every fiber of your being.

Desperation

We heard a sermon preached by Bro. Kenneth Walker entitled “Desperation Brings The Supernatural”. I was extremely impressed with a comment that was made and also demonstrated during the sermon. The question was asked that  if I had a loved one that needed to be rushed to the hospital, I would have no problem aiding that loved one no matter what time of day or night I was called upon. The challenge here is would the response be the same for a loved one who desired me to pray with them until they received the Holy Ghost, especially if they felt the Lord dealing with their hearts late in the night. I felt challenged with with this statement and left the service with a desire to be more attentive or just as attentive to spiritual matters. I was reminded of the quote I listed below and want to encourage you to let desperation bring the supernatural results you desire.

DESPERATIONS_  JEFF.IN  V-4 N-1  SUNDAY_  63-0901E
You can’t be desperate till God speaks to you. Oh, Church, rise and shake yourself! Pinch your conscience, wake yourself up, in this hour! We must be desperate, or perish! There is coming forth something from the Lord! I know it as THUS SAITH THE LORD. There is coming forth something, and we better get desperate. It’s between Life and death. It’ll pass through us and we won’t see it.
