Good day all,
A Word from the Lord:
In the Bible, the Lord blessed his people through humility, confession and repentance of sin, deeds, and actions.
Someone may say, but I haven’t sinned! Daniel the Prophet didn’t sin, but he poured out his heart to God with godly sorrow for the people and nation of Israel. Read Daniel 9:2-22
It symbolizes humility, and our dependence on God. The body of Christ needs refreshment. Our church needs refreshment. We all need refreshment by the Holy Spirit.
This is a Biblical precedent. It says, God we are serious about our relationship with you and what we do for you!
Anytime the people of God sinned, or needed something from the LORD, they did these actions.
Read Acts 3:18-21
Revival causes a stirring in our hearts for God. It ignites a love and fresh fire for God to be about his business, and zeal passion and fire is restored in our hearts.
In the book of Revelation 2:1-5:
Jesus told the church at Ephesus, they started out strong as a church and was doing well. But something happened.
They were doing what God told them to do. But their love diminished for God, and it came forth through their actions for God.
So, The Lord said do this:
(who I am, and who you are)
Return (to me)
(or I, the LORD will):
Remove (your lampstand which is your light. )
Jesus said in:
14 You are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light to all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Let us draw near to the Lord, that he may draw near to us, and send a mighty refreshment, restoration, and revival so our lights can shine brightly for Christ!
God bless, Pastor Quinn
