REJOICE! REVIVAL IS ON THE WAY

 

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.  2 Corinthians 4:17-18

Good news! We Christians know that we are facing afflictions we have never faced before, but they will place our minds on the things of God and eternity.

Not one part of our nation will be left untouched by the coming afflictions. Therefore, not one part of this nation will be without believers having their eyes on the Lord. Some of us will read our Bibles, repent of our sins, pray and go to church more than we have ever done before. The revival that many of us have prayed for through the years is just around the corner. One more time Satan has outdone himself. He has outdone himself in another way. Doors will open wide for successful efforts in evangelism. 

We are told that when the communists took over China, there were a million Christians there. Today, we are told there over one hundred million Christians there. Satan outdid himself in China just as he is doing in the United States of America.

God limited Paul’s ministry by sending him his “thorn-in-the-flesh.” The limitation resulted in Paul’s dependence on God which resulted in God giving him grace. Paul prayed three time for God to remove the thorn and the answer came back, “My grace is sufficient.” We are about to see evidences of God’s grace at work throughout this nation.

All things work together for good to those who love the Lord. God has worked for good in our generation by permitting Satan to do what he has done. We can begin praising God for what is on the way.

The grace that sends the revival will also equip us to face whatever comes our way.
