A Word From The Pastor: Dr. Timothy Nelson

 

     
     
Oh, that you [Almighty God] would rend the heavens, that you would come down, that the mountains might shake at Your presence. Isaiah 64:1

Revival is the sovereign work of Almighty God.

In Isaiah 64, God’s people had been carried into captivity, His work was in disrepair, and His people were dispirited, much like believers today. The Church has been carried into captivity by the world, the flesh and the devil. Christians are discouraged. Many have no hope for revival. They don’t even believe that revival is possible! Yet revival is not only possible, it is inevitable when God’s people get right with God.

Why is there no revival? Not because of liberalism in the churches, or disunity among God’s people, or because we’ve been worldly and compromised. If we get all of these matters changed, it still would not be revival. These aren’t the reasons for no revival. They are the result of no revival.

What is revival? Revival is when God comes down. Revival is meeting with Almighty God. Most of us seek God to do something for our church, our family, our nation. But we’re seeking God’s hand and not His face. Our heart needs to yearn for God. We should be saying, “O God, will You come down?”

Whatever the “spiritual season” of your life - revival is possible. Pray for revival. Believe for revival. Expect revival. Trust God to send revival in His time and in His way.
