“Wilt thou not revive us again: That thy people may rejoice in thee?” (Psalm 85:6) The answer to the rhetorical question posed to God by the Psalmist is found in His loving character and in His sovereignty.
In Revival and Soul-Saving Campaign 2017, we experienced the manifestation of the move of God in an awesome way. How mighty was the man of God in the preaching of the Gospel. The Gospel is a holy-making Gospel and the Lord Jesus is a holy Savior. We were challenged out of Acts 5:38-41 to be an “Unstoppable Witness” for the Lord Jesus as were Peter and the other Apostles. “And when they had called the Apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name.” The Apostles were unstoppable, and so must we be. We must not give-up, nor let-up, or back-up, until we are caught-up. The evangelist exhorted us to live with wholesome reverence and respect for God, which is the basis for all Godly living.
Hear the wiseman: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; But fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7) Please hear this truth; We do not live a holy life to be justified, but we are justified in order that we might live a holy life. The blotting out of our dark past is the beginning of a holy life. We praise God for a Spirit-filled Revival and the blessings of it’s aftermath. We thank God for the Evangelist, Pastor Earl Whitaker, may God continue to bless him. We praise Him for the Choir, awesome song services; the Ushers and the Sound Room Personnel, great work every night. A big “God bless you” to all and a very special “thank you Lord” for the food preparers, excellent food each night of the Revival.
To God be the glory! Let the Revival continue.
