EVANGELISM..........HOW REVIVAL CAN START FROM THE CHURCH



Repent Series!


Revival Starting in the church will challenge:
  • Everyone in the church to examine their lives in the light of God's word
  • Forsake their sinful ways and live a holy and righteous life
  • Children of God to produce fruits worthy of their repentance
  • Children of God not to be unequally yoked with the children of the world
  • Churches not mentioning the second coming of Jesus Christ are COLD.
  • Any church that is not preaching righteousness and holiness is also COLD.

Introduction:

The house of God is a place of prayer and teachings about God and His ways. Many souls are won outside and brought into the church to be established, while many are invited to a church service, during which they are  touched by the Holy Spirit, leading to their conversion.  

For such people, the Lord knowing they will come to church on such a day, would prepare a message that will touch their heart and convict them of their sin and sundry unrighteousness, and they will give their hearts to Jesus Christ.

We also have people invited to church, who continue with the church without giving their heart to Jesus, as well as believers who have backslidden into the world for different reasons of challenges they met as believers.

But when revival comes, every believer is re-awakened to the requirement for making heaven.  You are wakened to your responsibilities as a child of God.  Revival is sure to wake bench warmers up to ponder on their ways and eternity.  Revival is a great outpouring of the Holy Ghost which quickens people to live right with God as a worthy vessel. 

Revival shine the light of the gospel into our hearts, so that each person can see himself as he is...this is why revival meetings is characterized by people weeping and crying for God's mercy, forgiveness of their sins.

A revival will bring to light the word of Jesus Christ “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 

Revival will re-awaken those who think they have arrived and then becoming complacent with the Word of God, that God is not a respecter of person, as Jesus said it to us, many will say to Him on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’”

Revival in the Church:

Revival in the means that individuals will examine their ways and consider if they are children of God or not.  If you say you are a child of God, then where is your repentance?

You gave your life to Jesus for 10 years ago, and ever since you have been hearing messages in the church, but where is your changed life?  Have you not returned to your old ways of doing things.  

You were a witch before you gave your heart to Jesus Christ, but what has happened to you now? Have you not gone back into witchcraft and now what you do in the house of God is to work against believers  and report events in the church to your other witches at night?

You were a treacherous businessman before you gave your heart to Jesus and were baptized, but who are you now?  Are you not more greedy now than you were before?  Are you not the same person telling lies and cheating people at random?

You say you are born again, but nobody in your compound know you as a believer.  All they know you for is trouble, quarrel and fighting,.  Today, you are fighting your husband, the next day it is your neighbours you are fighting

When you got born again, you were active in soul winning, mission work and Sunday school teaching, but today, where are no in the things of God?  That vibrant Evangelist has become a Parrot, whose business is to gossip about almost everything on earth and you are still in the church.

You say you are born again and Jesus Christ says that a good trees produce good fruit; bad trees produce bad fruit.  Where is your good fruit since you gave your heart to Jesus Christ?

Children of God produce good deeds, but where is your own good deeds, how many times have visited the orphanage, homeless and motherless to look after their welfare and give them some gifts.  All you dream and think of you, you and you.  Your prayer is for you and your family only, from year to year.

You say you are born again as a young lady and you can sing praises, but what are you doing in the choir today, gossiping and busy seducing men with provocative dresses on worship days.  Where is the changed life? 

You are still born again, but no single fruit to show for your salvation.  You are weak in studying the word and weak in praying and the enemy will not stop using you against young believers?

The Message of John the Baptist:

This brings me to the message of one of our fathers in the faith, John the Baptist.  A revivalist, John the Baptist had one central message for all the Jews - "REPENT FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND" Mathew 3

When he saw that all Jerusalem, Judea and parts of Jordan came to him to repent and be  baptized, he asked them to "Bring forth fruit meet for repentance". 

Apostle Paul asked the Corinthian Christians to awake to righteousness and sin not - for flesh and blood will not inherit the kingdom of God.  

The message of John the Baptist, was incidentally repeated by our Lord Jesus Christ when He began to preach and teach about the kingdom of heaven.  That message is the same message I bring to you today  -  REPENT FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND

Having been born again, do away with every falsehood, lying, cheating, corrupt communication, fornication and adultery. 2 Cor 4:1-2  

Having born again, do away with the works of the flesh which the bible explained in Galatians 5:19-25. Having been born again, have no fellowship with the devil and his agents.  

Be not unequally yoked with unbelievers as there is not business between the darkness and light, therefore come out from among them and touch not unclean things, so that God will be your God and you, his son/daughters.

Having been born again, think about the things of God, things which are above only and make no provision for the flesh.  Walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the desires of the flesh.  Having been born again beloved, cleanse yourselves of every filthiness of the flesh and spirit and present your bodies a living sacrifice unto God, which is your reasonable service.

CONCLUSION AND ALTER CALL:

Revival starting in the church is revival starting with you my brothers and sisters.  Christianity is a personal relationship and each one of us will answer individually for our sins and unrighteousness.  It is important that we remain in the faith till the end of our journey on earth.

It is not the beginning of a journey that matters, but the end thereof.  If you are a Christian that have fallen out of the faith due to one pressure, wrong doing or sin or the other, I invite you to return to your heavenly Father today without delay...for nobody know the next hour.  Salvation is NOW.

Remember, you have not committed any unpardonable offence, if you can repent of your sin whatever it may be, and forsake it, God is just to forgive and cleanse you, so go ahead and confess the sins or weaknesses that has kept you down in the valley.

If you want to re-dedicate your life to Jesus Christ or give your heart to Him for the first time, please say these short prayer with me...and later let us know, so we can pray for God to establish and bless you in Jesus Christ name.

Say these prayer:
Heavenly Father, I come to you as I am, a sinner. 
Have mercy on me and forgive my sins, cleanse me with the precious blood of Jesus and make me your son/daughter.  
I ask Jesus Christ to come into my heart and be my Lord and Saviour.  
Lord Jesus, give me the grace to serve you in righteousness and holiness all the days of my life, Amen.  Thank you Jesus. 
I am born again!

Let us hear from you.  I will personally pray for you, that the Almighty bless and establish you in the faith till Jesus comes.


Friends, Jesus is coming back soon, but even if His coming tarries, one day death will come and the question is "Where will you spent eternity - in heaven or hell". This is the time to work out your salvation...Now is the acceptable time.

Beloved, there are many spirits speaking to people today, asking them to do the wrong things - Suicide, divorce, kill and destroy.  But the Spirit of God guides you to the right choices and tells you things to come. That Spirit of God comes into your life when you give your heart to Jesus.  He will give you a new life, victory and eternal life.
  
All you need to do is to Repent of your sins and sinful ways, believe the word of God and His Son Jesus Christ.  Will you accept Him today?

Say this Prayer: 
Lord Jesus I come to you as a sinner.
I am sorry for my sins, forgive me.
I believe you died for my sins, and was raised for my justification. 
Come into my heart be my Lord and Saviour, 
Give me the grace to serve You in truth and spirit. 
Thank You for saving my soul - I am born again!

His grace be with you all.
