Summary: A message on the need for an Old Fashion God Fearing revival in America. In our Churches. In our Lives

WAKE UP AMERICA

Psalms 85:6-7 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.

WE FIND A IMPORTANT QUESTION ASKED HERE ” WILT THOU NOT REVIVE US AGAIN” SOMETIMES WE SING A SONG “ REVIVE US AGAIN” BUT I REALLY WONDER HOW MANY KNOW WHAT THEY SING.

I BELIEVE AMERICA NEEDS TO WAKE UP. OUR FAMILIES, & OUR CHURCHES NEED TO WAKE UP. OUR PREAChERS NEED TO WAKE UP! WE AS INDIVUALS NEED TO REALIZE THAT WE NEED REVIVAL. I MEAN AN OLD FASHION KIND. THE EYE OPENING TYPE. DOWN ON YOUR FACE REVIVAL

WE HAVE GROWN COLD & FAR FROM GOD. WE HAVE GROWN FAR FROM HIS WORD, & HIS SERVICE. WE NO LONGER THE DESIRE TO DO RIGHT. WE NO LONGER WANT TO SEE FOLKS GET SAVED.

WAKE UP AMERICA!

1.WHAT IS REVIVAL?

A.IT IS NOT EVANGELISM:

IT IS NOT WINNING SOULS. ALTHOUGH THIS WILL RESULT IN REVIVAL

B.IT IS NOT EMOTIONALISM:

ALL THOUGH PEOPLES HEARTS WILL BE MOVED

C.IT IS A RENEWEL OF SPIRITUAL LIFE IN AN INDIVIDUAL. OR EVEN AMOUNG A GROUP OF PEOPLE:

IT’S GOD’S PEOPLE GETTING RIGHT WITH GOD & OBEYING HIM:

CHARLES FINNEY SAID THIS OF REVIVAL

“THE FOUNDATIONS OF SIN NEED TO BE BROKEN UP

REVIVAL ALWAYS INCLUDES CONVICITION OF SIN ON THE PART OF THE CHURCH” REVIVAL IS A NEW BEGINNING OF OBEDIENCE WITH GOD.

JUST AS LOST MAN COMING TO CHRIST WITH DEEP REPTANCE. SO DOES THE THE CHURCH NEED SUCH A REPTANCE THE CHURCH NEEDS THE BREAKING OF THE HEART. GETTING DOWN ON OUR FACES BEFORE GOD IN REPTANCE. WITH HUMILITY & FORSAKING SIN

D.CHRISTAINS WILL HAVE THEIR FAITH RENEWED

WHEN THE CHURCHES ARE THUS AWAKENED & REFORMED. THE REFORMATION & SALVATION OF SINNERS WILL FOLLOW. OUR HEARTS MUST BE BROKEN & CHANGED. THEN THEIR HARDEST OF SINNERS WILL BE SAVED

2.WHEN IS REVIVAL NEEDED? WHENEVER THE LOVE OF GOD’S HAS GROWN COLD. WE ARE SO VERY COLD IN OUR LOVE TO SERVE. WE ARE COLD IN OUR LOVE TO OBEY. WE ARE COLD IN OUR LOVE FOR OTHERS. WE ARE SO FAR AWAY FROM GOD

A.CONSIDER THE SYMPTOMS OF ITS NEEDS. 1. COMPLACENCY: SELF-SATISFACTION OR SATISFACTION WITH THE STATUS QUO. (HAPPY THE WAY WE ARE) 2.LACK OF CONCERN FOR THE LOST (TODAY CHURCHES ARE NOT EVEN SOUL WINNING ANY MORE.) WE ARE HIDING OR COVERING SECERT SINS (PREACHERS NO LONGER WALK THE WALK.) THEY ARE INTO DO AS I SAY THING. SIN IN THE CHURCH & CHRISTIANS ARE WAY OUT OF CONTROL JEREMIAH 23: 23-24 AM I A GOD AT HAND, SAITH THE LORD, NOT A GOD AFAR OFF. CAN ANY HIDE HIMSELF IN SERECT PLACES THAT I SHALL NOT SEE HIM? SAITH THE LORD DO NOT I FILL HEAVEN AND EARTH? SAITH THE LORD. ANIMOSITY TOWARDS OTHER CHRISTAINS. BITTERNESS AMOUNG THE PEOPLE OF GOD. BITTERNESS TOWARDS THE PREACHER & WIFE. THE LIST GOES ON.

(SAD CHURCHS FEEL LIKE A WAR ZONE) HAVING AN UNFORGIVING HEART (WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO PLEASE FORGIVE ME THEN THE TWO PEOPLE GET DOWN TO THE ALTAR CRYING TOGETHER)

WE ARE BEING FILLED WITH PRIDE I CAN DO THIS I DON’T NEED GOD. LOOK AT WHAT I DID. INSTEAD OF WHAT GOD DID

ANY CONDITION OF SPRITITUAL STANDING. WHERE WE ARE LESS THEN WE WERE BEFORE: WE ARE BACKSLIDDEN (REMEMBER 1ST SAVED ON FIRE)

B.DANGERS IN OUR NEED FOR REVIVAL OFTEN SPIRITUAL DETERIORATION COMES WITHOUT OUR AWARENESS WE THINK WE HAVE IT BUT

SAMSON HAD THE POWER OF GOD UPON HIM. BUT HE PLAYED AROUND WITH SIN. THE SAD THING IS NEVER KNEW HE LOST IT. Judges 16:20-21 And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep,and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the LORD was departed from him. But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza,and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house.

THE DISCIPLES HAD RECEIVED POWER FROM JESUS CHRIST TO HEAL & CAST OUT DEMONS THEY HAD LOST THEIR POWER. BUT THE SAD THING IS THEY WERE UNAWARE IT WAS GONE JESUS TOLD THEM IT WAS BECAUSE OF THEIR UNBELIF IN

MATT 17:19-20 THEN CAME THE DISCIPLES TO JESUS APART AND SAID, WHY COULD NOT WE CAST HIM OUT AND JESUS SAID UNTO THEM” BECAUSE OF YOUR UNBELIEF”

OFTEN THE CONDITION OF OUR HEARTS. IS SUCH THAT WE ARE NOT AWARE OF OUR NEED AT THE VERY TIME. THE FLESH WILL FIGHT AGAINST REVIVAL. TO HAVE REVIVAL WE MUST ADMIT THAT WE HAVE A NEED

3.WHAT KIND OF REVIVAL DO WE NEED? WE NEED A REVIVAL THAT WILL RESURRECT THE CHURCH: (OUR CHURCHES ARE DEAD. WE ARE LETTING A WORLD DIE & GO TO HELL. THE SAD PART IS WE DO NOT CARE REVIVAL MEANS RETURN TO LIFE JESUS DECLARED THE CHURCH AT SARDIS “ THOU HAST A NAME THAT THOU LIVEST, AND ART DEAD.” TO THE CHURCH AT LAODDICEA HE CALLS UPON THEM TO REPENT. THEY THOUGHT THEY HAD NEED OF NOTHING HE REBUKED THE CHURCH AT EPHESUS FOR HAVING LEFT THEIR 1ST LOVE (WE TOO HAVE DONE THE VERY THING) A SAD THOUGHT ELEMENTS OF ALL THE 7 CHURCHES OF ASIA. THEY ARE PRESTENT IN TODAYS CHURCHES FOLKS ARE MEMBERS OF A CHURCH BY NAME. WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN SERVING OR GOING. OTHERS ARE SATISFIED WITH THE WAY THINGS ARE. THEY SAY NO REASON TO CHANGE
