    Help us Lord! Society Needs God, Part 4. Will the City be Overthrown or Saved?

    Unto You I lift up my eyes, O You who dwell in the heavens. Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the Lord our God until He has mercy on us – Psalm 123:1-2 The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah went past the point of no return because its citizens were ‘exceedingly wicked against God’ (Genesis 13:13). Time passed and the outcry against these two cities increased. It came up before God because their sin was very grave (Genesis 18:20). Abraham with his incredible intercession, pleaded before…

    We Need a Revival! Society Needs God, Part 3. Is there Justice and Order? Are we Praying for God to Intervene?

    Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, who seek Your face – Psalm 24:3-6 As a nation, if we returned to God, our lives and our communities would be better. In fact, through repentance and prayer society as a whole would be transformed. If one household can be revived and live the Christian…

    Society Needs God, Part 2. Truth is Being Erased and Good is now Called Evil

    O Lord, though our iniquities testify against us, do it for Your name’s sake; for our backslidings are many, we have sinned against You – Jeremiah 14:7 God will forgive our sin and heal our land. This is the double promise of 2 Chronicles 7:14. It is the reason for repentance – restoration. God sees where we’ve gone wrong and promises blessing, but first we must do our part and repent. Today, the nations of the world and society in general are in a dangerous predicament. When God is ignored, put to the back or even pushed out of society, then other spirits with an evil agenda may come in…

    A Call to Repentance and Prayer: Society Needs God, Part 1. The Church Needs to be Revived and Society Transformed

    If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land – 2 Chronicles 7:14 Revival elevates society and can change the moral character of a city or nation. It can transform a country, as the Spirit of God descends in showers of blessing. In the past, this has brought about social welfare and changes which have been enshrined in law. The Church needs to be revived; revival, a spiritual awakening. God calls us to repentance because it leads to restoration. It…

    Christian Revival – The Promise and Meaning of a Spiritual Awakening

    On the Day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit fell in power and transformed Jesus’ disciples. We now identify this as the first revival of the Apostolic age. Suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance – Acts 2:1-4 This outpouring of God’s Spirit was the beginning of a spiritual awakening which has swept the world. It…

    The Crisis of the 2020s – What is God Saying? Ten Signs of the Economic and International Turmoil of 2021 +

    “What does God have to do to get our attention?” This is what a prophet said to me recently. Why do the nations refuse to seek the Lord? What will happen to get us on our knees? The Lord wants to save millions of souls. How bad will things get first? The 1857 Prayer Revival began in New York after an economic crisis. People were forced to think of greater things than money. The Coronavirus Pandemic has focused our attention on what is important. Looking ahead into the 2020s, there are signs of hope for God’s work. The Lord is good and wants our salvation. However, people tend to seek…

    God will be Glorified: Christian Revival is Not an Option, it is a Must

    Our nations are spiritually dry. Our churches need reviving and our people need salvation. God has a promise for us all. He will pour water on all who are thirsty and floods on the dry ground. The Lord will come and flood our nations with His Holy Spirit. This is what God says, “I MUST BE GLORIFIED.” Before all the people I must be glorified – Leviticus 10:3 He must be glorified and only in times of revival will nations turn to Him and glorify Him. God the Holy Spirit has transformed nations before and He can do it again. The Bible promises a flood of God’s power and we…

    Revelations of Divine Love by Julian of Norwich – All shall be well

    “All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well” – Julian of Norwich Everything you need is found in Christ and all your heart truly desires, is found in Christ. Out of the abundance of God’s goodness, His love will flow into your soul. “God loved us before He made us; and His love has never diminished and never shall.” These are the words of Julian of Norwich, a woman living in self-imposed house arrest – permanent social distancing – in a single cell attached to the Church of St Julian, in Norwich, England. In her estrangement from the world, she found…

    A New Spiritual Awakening – Does the Bible Promise another Christian Revival is Coming?

    The demonic spirits of cynicism and unbelief are trying to rob the Church in the West of the promise of a new spiritual awakening. These evil spirits say, “Those days are past.” Whom do you believe – the enemy or God? It shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants, I will pour out My Spirit in those days. And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and…
