A DESPERATE NEED FOR A MOVE OF GOD
1 SAMUEL 3:1 Ė 3


1 SAMUEL 3:1
And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision. 2 And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, that he could not see; 3And ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep;

HERE WE READ OF A TIME WHEN THERE WAS A DESPERATE NEED FOR A MIGHTY MOVE OF GOD

1 SAMUEL 2:22
Now Eli was very old, and heard all that his sons did unto all Israel; and how they lay with the women that assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

BECAUSE ELI WAS OLD, AND HIS HEALTH WAS FAILING HE WAS NOT ABLE TO SERVE AS THE PRIEST AND PROPHET OF GOD TO ISRAEL

AS WE CAN CLEARLY SEE HIS SONS WERE NOT IN ANY SHAPE TO SERVE AS GODíS MINISTERS EITHER FOR OBVIOUS REASONS

V.1 TELLS US THAT THERE WAS NO OPEN VISION AND THAT THE WORD OF THE LORD WAS PRECIOUS

AFTER CAREFUL STUDY WE LEARN THAT GOD WAS NOT SPEAKING TO HIS PEOPLE, NOR WAS HE MOVING AMONG HIS PEOPLE

IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT THERE WAS A DESPERATE NEED FOR A MOVE OF GOD IN THOSE DAYS

SOUNDS BAD DOESNíT IT?

BUT IN MANY WAYS WE ARE IN JUST AS DESPERATE NEED OF GOD TO MOVE IN OUR LIVES AND IN OUR CHURCHES TODAY

CAN GOD STILL MOVE TODAY?

THIS QUESTION CAN ALMOST GO UNANSWERED IN THAT WE KNOW THAT GOD CAN MOVE AT ANY TIME HE CHOOSES TO

IF GOD IS GOD, THEN AND HE CAN MOVE AT ANY TIME HE WANTS TO, AND HE CAN MOVE IN ANY WAY HE WANTS TO, AND WE KNOW IT IS HIS WILL THAT PEOPLE COME TO CHURCH

THEN WHY ARENíT PEOPLE STANDING IN LINE TO GET IN THE HOUSE OF GOD EVERY SUNDAY?

WHY THEN DO I NOT SEE GOD MOVING IN A GREATER WAY IN MY LIFE?

WHY CANT I EXPERIENCE THE GREAT SPIRITUAL BREAKTHROUGHS THAT OTHERS ARE EXPERIENCING?

I AM CONVINCED THAT GOD STILL CAN MOVE, THAT HE STILL DOES MOVE, AND THAT HE WILL STILL MOVE IN OUR LIVES AND IN OUR CHURCHES TODAY IF WE ARE WILLING TO ALLOW HIM TO

THE ONLY THING THAT STOPS GOD FROM MOVING IN OUR LIVES, AND THE ONLY THING THAT STOPS GOD FROM MOVING IN OUR CHURCH IS US

QUITE OFTEN WE STAND IN THE WAY OF GOD MOVING

GOD WANTS TO DO A MIGHTY THING IN THESE LAST DAYS, AND IF GOD CANNOT MOVE THROUGH US HE WILL MOVE AROUND US {LEAVING US OUT}


WE HAVE TO BE REMINDED THAT WITHOUT A MIGHTY MOVE OF GOD, OUR NATION, OUR FAMILIES, OUR FRIENDS, EVEN SOME THAT SIT ON CHURCH PEWS REGULARLY ARE HEADED FOR THE JUDGMENT AND WRATH OF AN ANGRY GOD

IT IS TIME THAT THE PEOPLE OF GOD DO MORE THAN JUST TALK ABOUT REVIVAL, IT IS TIME WE LIVE, AND EXPERIENCE REVIVAL

REVIVAL CAN NO LONGER BE JUST SOMETHING WE DO EVERY SO OFTEN IN HOPE THAT SINNERS AND NEW PEOPLE WILL COME TO HEAR SOME HOT SHOT PREACHER, AND START COMING TO OUR CHURCH

REVIVAL HAS TO BE JUST THAT A RENEWING, A REAWAKENING, A BRINGING BACK TO LIFE
TOO MANY TIMES WE HAVE BECOME CONTENT TO JUST HAVE MEETINGS, AND AT THE END OF THE SCHEDULE THINK IT IS OK TO SAY O WELL WE TRIED AND GO ON ABOUT OUR BUSINESS AS USUAL

MODERN DAY SODOM NEEDS A ABRAHAM

IN THE GENESIS ACCOUNT WE READ THAT ON TWO DIFFERENT OCCASIONS ABRAHAM INTERCEDED FOR THE PEOPLE OF SODOM

1st GENESIS 14 TELLS OF A TIME WHEN SODOM AND GOMORRAH FELL TO THEIR ENEMIES

KEEPING IN MIND THAT LOT WAS AMONG THOSE THAT
