Trust God

THE NEED FOR REVIVAL.......That will spread the knowledge and fear of God in peoples heart

The Changing Times:

"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 NKJV).

For the last several years, there has been an increasing cry for a fresh move of God in America, Europe and around the world.  Things has gone from bad to worse in many of the world civilized countries that you will begin to wonder whether these are the same people who brought Christianity to African and the whole world, when we knew nothing but the worship of idols.

How can the children whose grand parents knew God to the extent that they officially printed the bible, opened churches and embarked on missionary journeys across the Atlantic Ocean, just to declare the good news of the gospel to people of all races, now declare boldly that they don't know the Lord and any of His good dealings.  

How can children of America, God's own country that declared their faith in God in their currency - the Dollar, saying "In God we Trust" now say they don't need God and they can survive without Him?

How can a people God blessed with wisdom and prosperity because their fore-fathers trusted in God say that prayer should no longer be said in their schools, how can children of these great men and women reject the word of God?

These are not normal occurrences, so no child of God should be ignorant of what the devil is doing.  We should rise up in prayer and begin to wrestle the ground from the devil and see to the cancellation of many obnoxious laws across the West that are contrary to the word of God.  This is possible and will happen in Jesus name.

Our Christian Duty:
Christians and indeed the believers must come before God with pure hearts and contrite spirit and pray for a change of situation around the world.  It is our duty.

In the last 40 years or so, it has been said  that an estimated that over 100 million people have become disciples of Jesus Christ in China. ... but as we speak today, these liberated souls remain silenced and without voice, as China continue to move down the isle of  repression.  

They are closing down churches, big and small and recently, the president had to tell the people to  look unto the Government, instead of God for solution to their problems and also asked them to remove the pictures of Jesus Christ and replace them with that of the current president...and the believers around the world are still folding their hands.

I believe God is not happy with the state of man as it is today around the world, but He need a Watchman to pray for the nations and the world in general for God to step in as we all expect. That watchman is me and you, working together in the spirit - If we can unite, nothing can stand our way.

Prayer, Bible and Discipline Removed from Schools:
Is it not true that for many years, the legislative action in Europe and America, many of them negates the scriptures and the written word of God.  Is it not true that prosperity, comfort and technology has made so many people in these countries to forget about God and His wonderful dealings with His children.  I have seen and read many articles and documentaries where many youths would openly declare that don't know about Jesus or thought of knowing Him.  

Abomination - In some cases, young men and women declaring they have nothing to do with the opposite sex.  All they have known and thought of is same sex relationship.  But, brethren that is an abomination before God Almighty - Lev 18:22, yet these youths do  not know about it because they have never taken time to study the Word of God.

Another Abomination - Lately, another abomination is coming to light around the world, which seem to suggest the lack of Word of God in the lives of many people and families on earth.  We now have many young women carrying the pregnancy of their brothers, of the same mother and father and posting their pictures on the internet for all to see - When the bible clearly states that the brother or sister should not see the nakedness of its siblings, not to talking of marrying them. This is incest and a sin before God - Lev 18:9

Rejection - Is it not true that for many years now, alot of things has gone wrong in many nations of the world and the Christians have not prayed intensely.  As Billy Graham's daughter Anne Graham rightly posited in response to  a question regarding Sept 11 attack, said - " for many years in America, we have been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our Government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out" 

Hatred, Anger - The consequences of lack of the word of God in a life is heavy.  The word guides and teaches good and brotherly conduct to people individually.  The Word of God teaches love and patience always.  The Word of God warns us of the dangers of sin and teaches how to depend on God and not human knowledge alone, it teaches how to trust in God and run to Him when we are in trouble and how to obtain help from the Almighty God, so the absence of the word of God will mean that people will not fear the consequences of their action beyond being arrested and tried.  They will not consider eternal damnation.

Children becoming Difficult - The believers and Christians in America and beyond folded their arms when prayers were withdrawn from schools in America and probably Europe, they did nothing about it.  Then, the bible and teaching of the Word of God was also withdrawn from schools in America ...And the bible teaches that thou shall not kill, steal or hate your neighbour, rather love him as you love yourself. Again, it was moved and concluded that children should not be spanked, no matter the foolishness they get into, preparing the way for child disobedience and extravagant display of foolishness, which the bible say is in the bossom of children.  

Killing and Suicidal Actions - Today, children kill their classmates, strangers and sometimes their parents.  It does matter and often times, they are prepared to kill themselves because they know not the eternal consequences of such actions.

Today, the youths have little or no respects for their parents and older members of the society, the youths of today speak very dirty and repulsive languages around the world that you will wonder where they learnt all these word from.  The society's value and moral fibre has been devastated by these events and coupled with the fact that some Christians are not able to display the power which the gospel of Jesus Christ is made up of for their children and generations to see, many young people see believers and those serving the Lord as people wasting their time.

The Gospel is Power:
The gospel is power and whenever you remove this power of the Holy Spirit working in us and our lives, Christianity will become like religion and we cannot afford that this end-time.  Believers must up their game in the area of holiness, righteous living and meditation on the Word of God, so that many can walk in the power of the gospel. 

We in Fireinthebone believe in pray and have evidence that prayer works wonders.  Philip single handedly preached and won the entire city of Samaria, preaching Christ unto them, and the bible recorded that the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake because the Holy Ghost was with him.  The people today are not different from those recorded in the bible, for as they saw the miracles which he did - for unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came outof many that were possessed with them...the sick were healed, the lame walked and there was great joy in Samaria.

Why are prophetic churches not "looking" for members - It is because the prophets of God have the Word of God and understands prayer and when they pray by the leading of the Holy Spirit, the Spirit will draw hungry people of God to that church or crusade for their lives to be touched for the glory of God.  A single person who is a vessel unto honour can pray anything down from heaven.  Imagine when a city, country pray in unity, they will move the hands of God into action and that is why I started with  "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 NKJV).

God gave the children of Israel the 10 commandments, statutes and ordinances in the wilderness for them to know the standards of their God and adjust to His standards in relationship, business, financial and material things before they enter the Promised Land.  Without the word of God, even the best humans becomes very brutish, so we have to pray and pray until this revival comes.

But even before the Revival proper, parents should commit themselves to teaching their children about God, His goodness and love to us leading to the coming of our Saviour Jesus Christ.  They should teach the bible to them and what the bible call sin, abomination and all that they need to know about curses and what actions bring curse on the people.

You see, revival is not simply a matter of holding a series of special, long meetings with lots of singing and preaching and emotion, mixed with some falling and shaking and crying out.

No, revival speaks of a holy God coming in the midst of His people with fresh conviction, revealing our sin and our guilt and our coldness and our hypocrisy, calling us to repentance.

In a true revival, Christians are always brought under such conviction; they see their sins in such a light that often they find it impossible to maintain a hope of their acceptance with God. It does not always go that extent, but there are always, in a genuine revival, deep convictions of sin, and often cases of abandoning all hope."

"A revival is nothing else than a new beginning of obedience to God. Just as in the case of a converted sinner, the first step is a deep repentance, a breaking down of heart, a getting down into the dust before God, with deep humility, and a forsaking of sin."

An evangelical preacher Dr. Nathan Shehu, observed some years back that the great evangelical revivals witnessed in the USA and Europe in the past have died. The Nigerian preacher noted in a sermon that  "Revival has died in Europe and America because the children of evangelical revivalists have forgotten about the exploits that God did through their parents, who were the instruments of these great evangelical revivals in these two continents," 

Brethren, the Lord will reverse this trend using me and you as we embark on prayer for revival fire of God to spread the heart of men.  We will pray and live by the Word of God and the revival that God will send will shock the world.  The word of God and the knowledge of God will spread once again in the heart, spirit, soul and body of millions around the world.  Make no mistakes, the revival  we are praying for, will spread the knowledge of God around the world with signs and wonders following.  

We know that around the world, people are crying to God to help in many problems facing them from poverty, hunger to sickness and afflictions that has made life unbearable for the people and like T.L Osborn will always say...Millions of people are still asking questions about Jesus, who He is and what He did for us at the cross. 

We should rise to preach Jesus to people around the world, why He came to the earth and what He did for us all.  As we preach and teach others about Jesus, the Lord will be confirming His word with signs and wonders.  There is no greater need for the moment than the preaching and teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.  There is greater need than for believers to live by the word of God and then move and operate in the supernatural as Christ did.

Let every parent, mother and father teach his own children about the Lord Jesus Christ and the goodness of God Almighty and help prepare the children for a relationship with their creator.  We should teach our children about God and the wonderful dealings of God with us in the years gone bye.  "Our children need to have the Jordan experience if they are not to forget God's dealings with us,". The God that helped the people to build  America to what it is today should be praised and declared to the children.

This was the lifestyle of the nation of Israel, rewinding the history of God's goodness to their children in every generation.  We too, should embrace this worthy attitude and prepare our children to expect and experience the miracles of God.   I can imagine the frustration of parents, especially those with difficult children, who would have to watch such children grow from bad to worse because they cannot scold or spank such a child.

The revival I am praying for is one that will start from me and you and continue with our children and great grand children till Christ comes.  Our descendants should never lack the Word and knowledge of God, else the devil will take advantage of them, God forbid. 

Brethren, Jesus Christ is coming soon, let us all prepare.  If you have not yet given your heart to Jesus, please don't wait another day.  Do that right now - for now is the accepted time for your salvation.

PRAYER: - Please join us to pray for Revival in - America, Britain, Canada, Germany and Australia - They brought the gospel to us, their descendants will not be outcasts in the Kingdom.

Their Youths will know the Lord, be strengthened and established in righteousness.  Their Pastors, Evangelists and leaders will receive Revival fire to walk in the supernatural - Healing the sick and working miracles.  The knowledge of Jesus Christ will fill their heart again. IT WILL HAPPEN IN JESUS CHRIST NAME, AMEN!

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all!
