Summary: What we need back in the Pentecostal churches is a taste of that Old Time Religion. We need the Holy Ghost and fire that our ancestors had.

Give Me That Old Time Religion

Ecclesiastes 12:1-7

1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;

2 While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain:

3 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened, {the grinders...: or, the grinders fail, because they grind little}

4 And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of musick shall be brought low;

5 Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets:

6 Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.

7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

1 Corinthians 13:11

11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. {thought: or, reasoned} {put away: Gr. vanish away}

As a people, we need to understand what it means to “remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth”.

In order to remember, you had to be there.

Proverbs 22:6

6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. {Train...: or, Catechise} {in...: Heb. in his way}

When I was a child, I remember going to the house of God.

I remember when God did many miraculous things.

I remember when I was going to the valley as a teen; there was another teen there that had a blood disease.

I remember that she stood up in front of the congregation and she declared that she had just been touched by God and that she was healed.

The next day she said she had to go back to the doctor, but she knew that she was healed, and she was.

I remember as a teen in Cambridge I was outside painting the deck and a woman came up to the parsonage and had revealed to the Pastor how her husband was in the hospital and that they did not expect him to make it through the night.

I remember, as I was painting, I heard them start to pray on the inside of the trailer, they now start to speak in tongues and I felt the Presence of god as He showed up on the inside of that trailer.

The man recovered and as far as I know he might still be alive today.

I remember the day that I was filled with the Holy Spirit as a teen, I remember that shortly there after how God started to give me dreams that were coming from Him.

Train up a child in the things of God and when they are old they will not depart from it.

Take them to church and tell them what God has done in your lives.
