“Although we cannot alter the past, we can put our past upon the altar. The heart that surrenders its sorrows to God, surrenders its wounds to healing.”
And I commented with this:
Francis, do you remember how you prophesied in Wasilla, Alaska [Sarah Palin was there] about the revival happening up here to such a great degree that people should buy hotels, because of the people that will come to be a part of the revival?
I believe the main thing that is holding this up is that most ‘Christians,’ including pastors are not getting right with those they’ve hurt. Then they will feel right because only then will they be clean:
“There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are *in Christ Jesus*, WHO don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT.”
Because the truth about holiness required for salvation is no longer preached, People don’t think they have to get right with others in order to be right with God.
And only when we’re right with others can the Third Great Awakening Happen, because “God resists the proud, but GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE” — just like in Asbury, Wales and in Acts!
I got this word in 1990 while preparing to talk with a pastor in Anchorage, Alaska about what I believed was the reason revival wasn’t happening. I just wrote down what I heard:
Before we lift up our hands to worship God, if we remember we have ought with anyone, we should leave our gift at the altar, and first reconcile with our brother, and then offer our gift. Then God will honor our praise and worship. His glory will come: “Holiness, Truth and the Presence of God!”
We can’t just try to forget what we did to others. We must get right with them so we can be clean.
PAUL MADE SURE HE WAS RIGHT WITH EVERYONE.
“Herein I also practice always having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” – Acts 24:16
HOW MANY PASTORS CAN SAY THAT today? It’s really a disgrace.
The Welsh Revival of 1904-05 by J. Edwin Orr: A Countrywide Asbury-like REVIVAL! The 4 Points: #1 Confess any known sin, and put any wrong done to man right again. #2 Put away any doubtful habit. #3 Obey the Spirit promptly. #4 Confess your faith publicly.
Effects of the WELSH REVIVAL 1904-05: Whole communities were radically changed FROM DEPRAVITY TO GLORIOUS GOODNESS. The CRIME RATE dropped, often to nothing. THE POLICE had little more to do than supervise the coming and going of the people to the chapel prayer meetings. THE UNDERGROUND MINES echoed with the sounds of PRAYER and HYMNS, instead of nasty jokes and gossip. People who had fallen out BECAME FRIENDS AGAIN!!!!!!!
Can ‘Christians’ use Paul’s “Forgetting the things which are behind…I press on” statement as an excuse to not get right with those they’ve hurt? Paul also said: “I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” What if you don’t repent? And what will happen when you do? The Third Great Awakening can start with us!!! We can all be happy — ‘ONE’!
The Achan Factor — Because of one man’s disobedience the entire nation of Israel had to deal with the “Achan factor” among them before they could come under the umbrella of Almighty God’s blessings once again!
‘Let Us Be ONE’ Prophecy Continues 10/8/08: “It’s TOO LATE to REVERSE what’s been done for MY MEN have been REJECTED … Now is the Time to OVERCOME and GET RIGHT With ALL … FREEeeeeeeeeeeeee———DOM at last … Your HEART will SWELL with LOVE and it will be EASY to REMAIN In Me when others are On The BOAT With You”
If we build it He will come:
