#156964 - 10/09/13 04:57 AM Re: Characteristics of true revival and reformation [Re: Mark Shipowick]

Peace from our Lord Jesus Christ to you all!

I want to thank God for making me reach here! Am very glad that the Lord's people can come for fellowship here and prepare their lives unto the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ! Great relief.

Thank you Brother Mark for the contribution on revival! Thanks to all the others who have given a comment or two! Mark is talking about a general awakening of the Lord's people! Am concerned that others here have driven the point to a particular palce! The message is found in acts, 17:23-31 God has tolerated our paths but now calls evry man every where unto repentence because He has appointed a day for judgement.

Two nations, have been very significant in scriptures for revival. One America- for the defense of christian fredoms all over the world and England whom the Lord has used to defend, preserve God's Truths which was kept unknown to the people over the dark ages. Because of this awakenings, the beast suffered a would that wwould not be healed. People all over the worl have been preached to and Judgment is right at our doors. I will draw you to the writting of the Kings James version Bible which has been the pillar of all God's truth and meaasge to the entire world. There are now many translations that have hidden the facts and other doctrines that continue to keep people in darkness. These are the ones that provide the healing of the Beast's wound, which Paul stell us about, 2Thesselonians 2:3-7 " Le no man deceive you by any means, for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first and that man of sin be revealed......Vs. 7 For the mystery of iniquity does work already; only he who now lets will let; until he be taken out of the way. KJV. This is where the Lord calls for greater wisdom which we should all be praying to get.

There is a self seeking attitude among different Christian groups to be okay at the current situations, they preach only on prosperity, and things of this life! but the mystery of iniquity has taken many captives including even the very elect! It will be very supprising to teach any body here! These forces that have taken away our God given gifts, of love, care, teaching, meakness have been far planned. our school systems, university, now last to our daily worship, all the enmy has strongly waged war here. Science has changed much of the christian family to live only, but a lukeworm church.

Today there are many deviations from the SDA Doctrine many SDA denominations: This seperation means that, some thing is being done which we must all be concerned about! The doctrines of the Papacy which we must have learnt about, have penetrated in many of the christian families today and many are blinded because they greatly welcome them with many reasons to! The Lord solemnly warns, " if a man worships the Beast or receives its mark, the same "shall" drink of the wrath of the wine of the Lord! This is not going to take place in North Ameriac or Englan or Japane or africa alone, but the entire human race! (World)

So, Revival calls for an awakening in Worship, fellowship, doctrine, Spiritual gifts, remembering the widows, orphans, etc. This is only when our Lord will come and say unto us, "I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink.

May God bless you all for the fellowship and Spiritual reminders!

Kiboga Uganda.

A revival of true godliness among us is the greatest and most urgent of all our needs. To seek this should be our first work. There must be earnest effort to obtain the blessing of the Lord, not because God is not willing to bestow His blessing upon us, but because we are unprepared to receive it. Our heavenly Father is more willing to give His Holy Spirit to them that ask Him, than are earthly parents to give good gifts to their children. But it is our work, by confession, humiliation, repentance, and earnest prayer, to fulfill the conditions upon which God has promised to grant us His blessing. A revival need be expected only in answer to prayer.--1SM 121 (1887). {LDE 189.1}

I tell you that there must be a thorough revival among us. There must be a converted ministry. There must be confessions, repentance, and conversions. Many who are preaching the Word need the transforming grace of Christ in their hearts. They should let nothing stand in the way of their making thorough work before it shall be forever too late.--Letter 51, 1886. {LDE 189.2}

1. Urgency

"revival of true godliness among us is the greatest and most urgent of all our needs."

2. We are very low on "oil".
Oil is a symbol of the Holy Spirit.
God is more willing to give us the Holy Spirit, than are parents willing to give good gifts to a child.

3. What we must be to receive the Holy Spirit who revives and reforms us.

--In order to have a thorough revival among us, there must be a converted ministry. There must be confessions, repentance, and conversions.

There must be much prayer.

The Lord is far more interested in our fitness for His return, then we should be about timing His return.

Something needs to happen before Christ returns. Our greatest need must be met. A revival -- the out pouring of the Holy Spirit.

The coming of the Holy Spirit precedes the second coming. It is the Holy Spirit that convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. John 16:8.

But notice something we learn from the first Pentecost in the book of Acts. The Holy Spirit did not fall on the world, it came upon a small group of believers who were praying and seeking the Lord in earnest. The Holy Spirit is sent to the church and works through these believers to reach the world.

What brought on this baptism of the Holy Spirit from which these disciples emerged empowered and equipped to witness to the world?

Revival -- maybe the problem is that we are passively waiting for some great power to take hold of us and expect then to be "on fire" Christians -- when the revival needs to come BEFORE God's Holy Spirit in the latter rain can fall upon us in full measure of power?

I saw that none could share the "refreshing" unless they obtain the victory over every besetment, over pride, selfishness, love of the world, and over every wrong word and action. We should therefore be drawing nearer and nearer to the Lord and be earnestly seeking that preparation necessary to enable us to stand in the battle in the day of the Lord.--EW 71 (1851).

We need to give more serious consideration to the command of God to come out of the world. Sometimes we think "being in the church" is enough, but sadly there is a great deal of the world within a great many inside the church -- indeed within the church itself.

Are we different from the worldling? Our speech, our dress, our habits of life, the themes of our conversations? A lot of us don't like being different, we'd rather blend in.

Yet, when we consider the issues before us, how could we ever stand up for truth when the world is against that truth, if we are so uncomfortable being "different"?

1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

The ultimate objective in the plan of salvation is to transport us bodily, literally, out of this world, away from evil and sin, and take us into another world, a heavenly world, into the association of holy beings.

So the question to ask ourselves is --
Will I miss the worldly pleasures and life style?
Am I longing to be in the company of holy beings?

Probably the most important question--
Do I today, live in the presence of God?

"Enoch walked with God; and he was not' for God took him"
