“Look around, tell me, what do you see?
You might not smell the smoke, but the fire is approaching.
“When sinners are careless and stupid, and sinking into hell unconcerned, it is time the church should bestir themselves. It is as much the duty of the church to awake, as it is for the firemen to awake when a fire breaks out in the night in a great city. The church ought to put out the fires of hell which are laying hold of the wicked. Sleep! Should the firemen sleep, and let the whole city burn down, what would be thought of such firemen? And yet their guilt would not compare with the guilt of Christians who sleep while sinners around them are sinking stupid into the fires of hell.”
“God is never on the defensive. God is always on the offensive“.
Of course, when men go to do a task they strip from off themselves, oh, cumbersome garments.The purpose and plan of almighty of God is the reviving of his church, the reviving of his work and the reviving of his people.
God has ordained that by the Word of God preached men shall be saved Old, plain, homely preaching of the Word of God is God’s method to the salvation of souls.
You see, the Church doesn’t like the plain preaching of the gospel.
Prophecy unto us smooth things.”How ignorant!”
Nearly a billion people in the 21st Century, Unable to read a book or sign their names. Illiterate, and unable to read, not even the Bible. The truth of God being trampled,
And Jesus being scorned by a world in desperate need to encounter him.
And Jesus Christ, the only answer for the world,
Lives in you, and moves through His body, the Church.
Yet the world says the Church is losing its influence.
This cannot be… not on our watch.
“May the eyes of this generation be open” We are the church, it’s time we responded, the world needs us!!
