When Will Revival Start?
Gypsy Smith was once asked how to start a revival. He answered, "Go home, lock yourself in your room and kneel down in the middle of your floor. Draw a chalk mark all around yourself and ask God to start the revival inside that chalk mark. When he has answered your prayer, the revival will be on." Why not covenant with God to draw that private circle?
Huldah was a prophetess who lived during the reign of Josiah. After becoming the king of Judah,
someone brought a copy of the Law to him. King Josiah sent five messengers to her with the Book of the Law which he had discovered. He must have had faith in her spiritual insight. She confirmed that it was truly the Word of the Lord. 2 Kings 22:13, “Go and inquire of the Lord for me and for the people and for all Judah about what is written in this book that has been found. Great is the Lord’s anger that burns against us because our fathers have not obeyed the words of this book; they have not acted in accordance with all that is written there concerning us.” The discovery of the Law brought a revival to Judah.
May God help us to consult God’s Word to see how far we have drifted from God. The official decline of this nation began in 1962-63 when we allowed our Supreme Court to remove prayer and Bible reading from our public schools. Then years later, we legalized abortion, land when we sanction the murder of our society’s most innocent and helpless citizens, then none of us is safe!
It is this writer's opinion that our official decline began in 1962-63 when we allowed our Supreme Court to remove prayer and Bible reading from our public schools. Ten years later, we legalized abortion, and when we sanction the murder our most innocent citizens none of us is safe. We have discarded the sanctity of human life and are reaping the bloody results. Profanity, desecrating the Lord's Day, disobedience to parents, murder, adultery, stealing, lying, and coveting are all forbidden in the Ten Commandments, but Americans are acting like those were only "ten suggestions." There is a high price for drifting so far from God and every day we file for more divorces and lawsuits, increase our welfare rolls, build more jails and hospitals, bury more dead and shed more tears. What is the answer for all this madness? 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” In other words, there must be “Revival for Survival.”
