Intro

There are marks of every great revival - from the ones in the Bible and throughout history. What typically happens is the people of God repent and stir themselves into a great desire to live holy lives pleasing to God. As they cry out to Him for their own hearts and the hearts of the world God often responds by empowering His people to do His work.

Exp.

Lately, and more often, as I think on the Lord I have this feeling that I can only describe as electricity. going through me. I feel as if I am being “charged up.” But here’s the thing. If He is charging me up it is so that He can do something through me. So to ask the easiest question in the world, “what happens if I do nothing with the filling He is giving me?”

Exp

So far we have talked about a few things in our preparation for the revivals. We need to pray hard. We need to behave Christlike. We need to look for opportunities to promote not just the meeting but the cause of Christ. And the best way for us to do that is to be filled with the Spirit.

Sprinkling of to do’s … Unity, gentle, patience, bearing with love, put off falsehood, put off bitterness, rage, anger, slander..... read chapter 4.
