Brokenness (sackcloth) - We must reach a point of desperation. Do we really want revival? We must give up our pride, get on our knees, confess our sin, seek God and pray for revival to come. The people of Nineveh “believed God”, proclaimed a fast and put on sackcloth. They mourned their evil past. The king of Nineveh proclaimed that all should “turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands”. Our nation needs to do this! Individuals need to do this!
Urgency (cry mightily) - The people of Nineveh felt a sense of urgency. They were facing an emergency situation! Don’t you feel that today for our nation, for yourself? Pray. Pray hard. Seek God.
Turning Away from Sin (Repentance) - We must turn from our wicked ways! The Ninevites did this. They changed their attitude toward God. God was then able to deal with them through grace rather than judgment. He will do the same for our nation and for you! The choice is yours to make!
Praise to God for the three new members that joined during Sunday services!
Our revival “services” began Sunday night. Pastor David Phillips of Amazing Grace Baptist Church preached a powerful message from Revelation 12. “And they overcame him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” Revelation 12:11. We were also blessed to hear their children and Youth sing. Praise God! Can’t wait for the rest of the services this week!
