WE NEED REVIVAL

*READ PATIENTLY PLEASE!!!*

At A Time When The Church Has Become A Ground For Entertainment.
*We Need Revival.*

At A time When A Music Minister Competes And Compares Himself With Secular Musician:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time When The Altar Of God Is Used For Comedy:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time When A Successful Minister Of The Gospel Is Measured By How Financially Rich He Is; And Not How Much Impact He Is Making:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time, When Passion For Souls Have Been Replaced With Fashion Parade In The Church:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time When Motivational Speaking Has Replaced Biblical Preaching:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time When You Really Cannot Differentiate Between A Daughter Of Zion And An Harlot:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time When Pastors Kill Each Other For Posting And Higher Position:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time When Modern Preachers Now Tell Us That JESUS Is Not Coming Soon:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time When PAINTING, ATTACHMENT And JEWELERIES Have Replaced The Beauty Of God's Glory:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time When Sexual Sin Is Referred To As Weakness And The Grace Of God Is Taken For Granted:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time When Prophets Prophesy; Using Demonic Powers As Livelihood:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time When The Church Does Not Know The Difference Between Witchcraft Spirit And The Holy Spirit:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time When Filling The Seats In Our Place Of Worship Has Become A Priority; And Raising Of Funds Than Raising Disciples Of Jesus:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time When Sinners Feel Comfortable In Our Churches And Saints Feel No Sense Of Urgency To Preach The Good News To The Lost:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time When Pastors Are More Concerned About How Much Money Members Give Than How Much The Members Truly Love The LORD:
*We Need Revival.*

At A Time When The Word Of God Is Scarce And The Fire On The Altar Is Going Out, And The Priests Have Become Blind, The Watchmen Sleeping, And Holiness Is No Longer Our Standard:
*We Need Revival.*

We Need Revival, Not A Programme.
We Need Reawakening Of Our Souls And A New Awareness Of The Power Of God.

We Do Not Need Another Jamboree, But True Repentance Coupled With A Changed Life.

We Do Not Need Another Noise, We Need A Shaking And A Mighty Rushing Wind.

We Do Not Need Another Movement, We Need A Reformation.
We Need The Lord To Come Again And Restore Us Unto Himself.
We Need The Lord To Open Our Eyes Again That We May See Him.
We Want To See His Holiness Again That We May See Our Depravity.

We Need A Genuine Outpouring Of The Holy Spirit, We Are Tired Of Speaking In Tongues And Not Living Christ-Like.

There Is No Other Desire That We Have Than To Hear Again The Same Voice That Spoke In The Valley Of Dry Bones To Bring Us Back To life. Our Nations Are In Darkness, Yet We Are The Light.

We Cannot Pretend Anymore, We Need To Activate The Power Of Holy Ghost And He Will Reawaken Us.

He Will Revive Us Again Because We Do Not See Our Signs And Wonders As Done By The Apostles Of JESUS.
There Are Only Few JESUS' Prophets In Churches, Some Are Not Even Recognized.

Let Us Pray That God Should Have Mercy Upon Us! And Revive Us Again!

Let Revival Hit The Earth In These Last Days.
Be Prepared FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD.
IT WILL BE LIKE A DREAM.
DO NOT BE CAUGHT UNAWARE. . . !

Good morning

TOPIC:   THE GREAT BURDEN-BEARER

READ  PSALM 55:16-23
MEMORISE:    Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved. (Psalm 55:22)

It is pure wisdom to hand over what is beyond your capacity to a greater power, that can help do it. To get the work done well, and in time, with some help, is wiser than to quench under the load of the work while trying to do it alone. That is not a heroic thing to do. Have you ever said to someone, "I don't mean to impose upon you, but could you give me some help?" It's a polite way of humbling yourself in the time of need. And that's all well and good, for sometimes, we do need to ask others for assistance, without becoming an impositor upon them.
When it comes to Jesus, He wants to continuously help us to carry our burdens; not a one-time affair. In 1 Peter 5:7, we are simply urged to "throw our cares upon the Lord" so as to get them as far away from ourselves, as possible! This is the secret of humbling ourselves under the mighty hand of God. If you think you're sufficient to handle all by yourself, then you are viewed in God's eyes a being proud and full of yourself.
Beloved, the Lord invented "prayer" for you in this world of trouble. It is a sure way to get our requests quickly to Him. He waits on you daily to hear your call, cries, even complaints. You must tell Him exactly how you feel, and quit the pretence of "it is well" when you are before your Maker. Recognise that you are unable, and dependent on Him. Cast your burden on Him, today and always. He cares for you.

PRAYER POINTS:
1. Lord, forgive me for limiting Your power, by thinking that I can do it all by myself.
2. I come to you today, oh Lord. Take all my burdens and give me utmost rest and joy.
3. We hand over the affairs of our nation unto You, oh Lord, intervene as the Head in the kingdom of men.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: ISAIAH CHAPTER 65 - CHAPTER 66; JEREMIAH CHAPTER 1 - CHAPTER 3

Topic:* COMPLETE TURNAROUND
*Read:* Acts 9:36-41

*MEMORISE:* _You are My battle-ax and weapons of war: For with you I will break the nation in pieces; With you I will destroy kingdoms._ *(Jeremiah 51:20)*

*EXPOSITION*
God turned the ugly situation in Genesis 1:2 to a conducive habitation, which shows that God has unrestricted and unquestionable power to do the same in any situation we find ourselves.
Based on the invitation, Apostle Peter came from Joppa to meet the saints in the terrible situation, occasioned by the death of Dorcas *(Acts 9:39)*, but God used His battle-axe (Peter) to effect the needed positive change of bringing the dead Dorcas back to life. Peter left them in a joyous situation *(v. 41)*.

How was that family, church, office, when you got there? And how is it now? What have you done to effect a positive turnaround in your family, church, office and society? What have you done to put smiles on the faces of people, working as God's agent to replace their sorrow with gladness? Are the situations around you remaining unchanged or getting WORSE than you met them?

Apostle Peter left the saints better than he met them. He met them sorrowful, but left them rejoicing. Therefore, let God use you as His battle-axe for turning every ugly, woeful life and deplorable situation into better ones; sinners to saints, and criminals to Christians.  Let Him work on/in you so as to work with you.

*PRAYER POINTS*
*1.* Oh God, let Your purpose be made manifest in every situation I pass through, in Jesus' name.
*2.* Pray for those who are in horrible situations presentlybereaved, hunger-stricken, hopelessly sick, etc.
*3.* Oh Lord, give the well-to-do in our society and churches the bowels of mercy to be supportive to the less-privileged.

*EXTRA READING FOR TODAY:* Isaiah 49 - 56
