Repent Revival

Something to think about.
 
Repent Revival
 
17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” Mathew 4:17
 
I have repented. Yes, I’m still working on it. I am still in the process of receiving all that is associated with repentance. This commandment of Christ still haunts me. It rattles me to my core because it is still a valid call. There are those around me that have not repented. I am not talking about those in Hollywood or in politics or business. Nor any other group of people, I am talking about my brother, sisters, nieces, nephews in short my family. There is an entire world living all around me that have not repented that have not accepted Christ. I pray for revival in this country, state, and city. I need to start praying for revival in my family.  Is it possible that we have not seen a great revival in this country because we are praying for someone else? The next great revival needs to begin at home. The great field of harvest is not in some far away city or country. It is within our homes. With the people, we break bread with. With those that will no longer listen to our message. If they won’t listen how can we reach them? We need to pray for them. We need to stand in the gap for them. What that means is we need to chase after God on their behave. We need to cry out to God for their salvation. We need to get into the battle for their souls. They may not listen to us, but God has the resources to reach them He has the means to touch their hearts. 
 
Have we given up on our families? Have we written them off as unreachable, unworthy, hopeless unforgivable? Have we become blase about their eternal destination. Have we accepted them as a lost cause? Have we turned them over to eternal death? If we are to see revival it needs to start at home. If we have written off our families do you really think we will care about the lost of the world? This is a call to action to pray for your family to begin a revival in your home. 

I Have no Pleasure

Something to think about.

I Have no Pleasure

““Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways,” says the Lord GOD. “Repent, and turn from all your transgressions, so that iniquity will not be your ruin. Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord GOD. “Therefore turn and live!”” Ezekiel 18:30-32 NKJV

Some see God as an unjust taskmaster who’s only desire is to see the distress and destruction of man.  They see Him as one who is sitting in secret plotting how to punish man for the smallest transgression.  But here in Ezekiel, we see the true heart of God. He is pleading with you and me to acquire for ourselves a new heart and a new spirit that will bring us into fellowship with Him.  He ask us, why would we chose death, He clearly states He takes no pleasure in the one who dies.  Then if you can read between the lines, you can hear and see God screaming imploring, cajoling us to turn and live, and not just live but to live as one accepted by Him.

Something to think about.

Better or Worse

And Jesus answered and said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? 3 I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. Luke 13 2-3

If you are Clinton or Trump, known or unknown, proud sinner or self-proclaimed saint if you don’t repent you will perish. Perish does not mean you will cease to exist; that would be a blessing. Perish means you will live apart from the forgiveness, wonder, glory, majesty, justice, love, peace, joy, holiness and righteousness of God. You will live apart from God in uncontrolled chaos and unbridled unrighteousness, without the mercy of God. You will be condemned to know of God but denied any of His glorious gifts.

Repent

Something to think about.

Repent

I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. 4 Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse sinners than all other men who dwelt in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” Luke 13 3:5

You can’t be a citizen of heaven and hell. Repentance is what declares your allegiance and identifies your citizenship.

Change Your Mind

Something to think about.

Change Your Mind

19 Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, Acts 3:19

Repent, means to change one’s mind. Which in turn changes one’s actions. If you do not repent you cannot have your sins forgiven nor receive times of refreshing from the Lord.
