THE ANTECEDENTS OF TRUE REVIVAL (Part 1)

THE ANTECEDENTS OF TRUE REVIVAL (Part 1)

We certainly need true revival and we need it fast. However, revival does not just happen. The history has proved this to be true. Both in the Bible and in our contemporary days, there are some occurrences, events, circumstances, situations or realizations that always precede true and lasting revivals. These are called “the antecedents of revival.”

It is a sheer delusion to expect revival without any antecedents. There are things that must happen, preparations that we must make, or things that we must know or do before revival can break forth in our lives, churches, streets, schools, communities and nations…

God is not the author, cause or source of our troubles. However, God always seeks to work all things together for our good and for His glory. Sadly, we are often impatient with God, being concerned only about our good and not His glory.

The Church today is into making several things of the people except making them true disciples of Christ. What an utter disregard for Jesus’ command! We may never experience true revival of Christianity in our generation unless we give “Great Attention and Commitment” to the Great Commission the Lord Jesus gave us…

TRUE CHRISTIAN DISCIPLESHIP (Part 1)

TRUE CHRISTIAN DISCIPLESHIP (Part 1)

Discipleship is not a new idea or concept in the Church though it has become very unpopular, unfashionable, and unappealing to many believers today. It is certainly not without any significance that the word “disciples” appears in the New Testament 269 times and the word “believers” or “believer” only 4 times.

This surely indicates that the purpose, calling and mission of the Church is not making “believers” of the people, but rather making them “disciples” of Christ. It also shows that there is a world of difference between being a believer and a disciple of Christ…
