Text: Zech 4:6 - 5:3   (King James Version)

  "Father, I am your servant, willing and desiring to be used to bless your people."

                            The Fields are white and the laborers are few!
C.H. Spurgeon said, "If God does not save a man by truth he certainly will not save them by lies, and if the old gospel is not competent to work a revival, then we will do without the revival;"

Miracles, healings, mighty deliverances, gifts of the Holy Spirit!

These are the mighty acts of God that make the preaching of His Word effective.

 

To win this nation to Jesus, we will need the demonstration of the Spirit's power.

 

1 Corinthians 2:4   And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

1 Corinthians 2:5   That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

1 Thessalonians 1:5 ...our gospel came to you NOT SIMPLY WITH WORDS, but also WITH POWER, with the HOLY SPIRIT and with deep conviction.

 In America we're "preaching to the choir" because the unchurched are tuning out our words.

In 1971 I read of  a Christian school principal asking a group of high school boys, "What will it take to help you guys serve the Lord?" He said he would never forget their reply:  We need to see a REAL MOVE OF GOD!" These young people were hungry for a demonstration of Holy Ghost ministry and power.


Let's pray. Father,

Open my eyes so I can see Your truth.

Open my ears so I can hear Your voice.
Open my mind so I can understand Your Word.
And open my heart so I may receive all that You want me to receive. AMEN
