Those of you waiting and praying for Revival even as you work fully for the advancement of God’s Kingdom, would you recognise when the new thing is beginning? By the time the New Testament story begins the line of David was reduced to a stamp, a root out of dry ground. All that was visible was a man, a woman and a baby in some sort of animal shelter… easy to pass over as being of no significance….who knows where the whirlwind of God may begin at any moment….Move on 30plus years to the cross and the line of David was reduced to a man unrecognisable as human, mocked by people and apparently unwanted by God Himself. Yet there, the breakthrough and beachhead of the Kingdom, a door into the Kingdom of God, was being opened at street level for all who would believe down through the centuries until it is shut forever when Christ comes again. “FINIISHED!” “Now, is the judgement of this world, now is the prince of this world cast out, and I, wen I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Myself!”
Both Jesus birth and cruxifixction would have been passed over as completely insignificant. The birth of a baby among thousands? A cruxifixction among thousands? Yet from those tiny insignificant specific points and moments in history according to onlookers observation, the world was changed and the door from and into eternity opened.
At what insignificant point, unnoticed by the church or the world, might the the whirlwind, the next nation shaking Revival begin?
This is so accurate! So few ever recognised the move of God. I hope the whirlwind you write of will indeed be for the purpose of conviction of sin among all of us (and not just those who do not yet have any understanding of their separation from Him) rather than His wrath arriving.
In 1 Thessalonians 5:6 we are reminded to be “So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober.”
It is important to be ready at any time I pray and hope the church is ready and the people of God, because one day the Lord will return. A sobering and great message Kenny.
Preach it, brother!!!!
