Revival has a purpose, Its not just so we can feel good and go home. Its drawing nigh unto God so that we, as THE CHURCH, can fulfill his purpose. Unrepented sin stands between us and communion with God. God says in his word he simply can’t look upon it, therefore we can’t function like he wants us too in his will. How can we when our lines of Communication are cut off.
As Christians we are quick to beat our chest and say “God you need to send Revival“, but are we looking inward searching out and asking The Lord to reveal, daily, those thing‘s that are corrupting our minds and bodies and separating us from the presence of God.
In the Old Testament a Priest with unrepented sin in his life was not allowed to go into the Holy of Holies to offer sacrifices to God or he would be killed instantaneously. I believe this is a type and shadow of the separation (spiritual death) from God that we suffer in today’s Christian life with intentional unrepented sin in our lives. We wonder why our prayers are not being heard, and why we can’t feel the presence of the Lord.
You want Revival ??? Then its time for some separation!!
How Can we commune with God when we have gorged our minds on trash being emitted from a television set. The watching of Television programming is not a sin within its self, but as Christians we need to develop a sense of when its time to turn the channel. When I have truly been seeking God, I can’t turn one on without the Holy Ghost inside of me being grieved, but the more you sit and watch programming unbecoming to the word you feel less conviction because you are feeding the flesh the trash it likes and the spirit man becomes weaker and weaker.
You may say that repentance is for sinners and I’m saved, but I say to you as long as you are robed in flesh you will fight the sin nature. It is important to remember though that the only way to fight the flesh is through faith in Christ and his finished work at Calvary. When you fall, repent and move on!
Paul said in Corinthians that he dies daily. Leading me to believe that, as great a Man of God as he was, he had to repent daily. “Dies” referring to putting the flesh to death in a spiritual sense. The act of Repentance achieves this desired end.
Will Add scriptual backup soon, but first I would like to give you a chance to add some!
