Title: Revival is Coming

Notes:

Today we had three guest speakers. Two were college students from California, and one was a representative of the Utica Rescue Mission. They all had a similar message and those revolved around the fact that revival is coming and it's coming soon.

Put your trust in the Lord, not men or chariots. The things you don't work at will fall apart. You must work on your faith and those things of God.

Remember that we believe in the truth.

Mark chapter 5 (see Mark 5:1-5) starts with a man who was possessed by demons that called themselves Legion. We are an Apostolic church and we believe that demons and the supernatural exist and that they are no challenge to God and Christ. We have power over demons because of our faith. In this story Christ easily defeats Legion. This man had been possessed by thousands of demons. He was crazy and would tear his clothes. The people would bind his hands and feet with chains. And every time they bound him, he would break the shackles. Because he was possessed he could break the physical chains, but every time after he broke the chains he would return to the graveyard. He was unable to break the non-physical chains. As Christians, we rely on God to be our chain breaker. But we have to prevent ourselves from going back to our graveyards (our addictions, bad habits, etc.) like this man who was possessed by Legion did after breaking his chains. God wants us to be prosperous in a spiritual sense.

We live in a corrupt society, but revival is coming and it starts with you. We must continue to seek God diligently.

The youth of our church are dealing with pressures and tendencies like never before. We live in a pornographic era where television is influences by the devil. Sex, homosexuality, and wrong behavior is promoted constantly on television, even in the advertisements. Lust of the eyes, coveting and wanting what is in the world like big houses and fast cars, these are just a few of the pressures we all face. The first thing we must know is that the devil wants us to take our eyes off God and Jesus Christ (Genesis 3:6).

There is nothing good that you can successfully do without God. Pride comes before the fall (Proverbs 16:18). Don't think that the good things you accomplish were all on your own. Your pride is the reason you are the same. Your pride is the reason you go to church each Sunday but never change. Submit yourself to God. This will give you the ability to defeat the devil.

When you die you can't take the things of this world with you (1 John 2:17). Don't take your eyes off of God. There are three things that are out to destroy you on a daily basis: the devil, the world, and the flesh. Seek after God, He can help you to defeat these things, these desires. Get a hold on Him. Walk with Him seven (7) days a week, not just on Sunday. Don't go to church on Sunday and walk in the flesh the rest of the week. This will be your downfall.

Revival starts with us. We must comply with the Word of God. We must submit to God and His Word. Revival has to start in the house of God. Confess your sins to one another and you will be forgiven.

Are you walking the walk of faith?

Jesus told his disciples to go forth and do four (4) things: declare the kingdom has come, heal the sick, raise the dead, and cast out demons. More than ever we need the spiritual power available to us. We are connected to the world through our phones and television. We need revival. We need to be set free. We need to hear the word and run with it. Invest yourself in the Word. Invest your money and your relationships in it.

Be prepared for revival, and submerse yourself in it, be part of it.
