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.
