Truly this nation is in trouble; may be you are in trouble. You may be worried about paying your bills. Politicians seem more interested in feathering their own nest than helping solve our problems.
Students pile up college debts only to end up working in fast-food restaurants. The nation’s infra-structure…roads, bridges, dams and traffic management is deteriorating. Our education system has fallen behind much of the rest of the world. The news is filled with violence, murder, fraud and robberies.
This nation (and Africa is not alone in this) has lost its way and needs a spiritual revival. But just what kind of revival does the world need today? Tent meetings were the rage during the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression. Evangelists travelled from town to town setting up large tents, calling people to believe in Jesus and be saved. In the 1960’ and 70’ the Jesus people sprang from the “hippie culture’.
But what would the 21st century Christian revival look like? A real Biblical, God-centered revival involves a radical change in your thinking and actions. It requires a radical change in your life. It will even take a radical change of how you define Christianity.
Jesus Christ, the Founder of Christianity came to launch the greatest religious revival in human history when he said:
“If people come to me and are not ready to abandon their fathers, mothers, wives, children, brothers and sisters, as well as their own lives, they cannot be my disciples. So those who do not carry their own crosses and follow me cannot be my disciples.” (Luke 14:26-27)
What does God want to do in your life?
At the beginning of His ministry Jesus stood in the synagogue and read from the book of the prophet Isaiah: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me for he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, set at liberty those who are oppressed and proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:18-19)
God wants to prepare you for the greatest revival the world has ever known. It will be a time when all humanity will receive workable solutions to political, economic and social problems. Christ is returning to lead this mighty revival…not through tent meetings or political movements but by literally establishing God’s Kingdom on the earth. You can take part in this spiritual renewal by submitting to him today.
