3-11-2023 The Asbury, Ky. Revival
Not a regular post, but Father said to post this on the blog, anyway.
A good thing
happened in Asbury, Ky. In February.
People came together at church to receive something from God. I have no doubt that many did receive what
they went for. I have no doubt that the
presence of the Holy Spirit was present but was His power also there – full
in Kentucky’ may go down as the spark that ignited the Spiritual explosion God
IS bringing into the world. Yet, many
‘little campfires’ have already started in various parts of this globe. India?
Africa? Asia? And many may yet go to where they can receive
something from God. Yes, Father desires
to bless His children and as He gives to us, does He expect anything in return?
Yes. Our hearts.
Jesus identifies the greatest Commandment as “Love the Lord God with all
our heart, soul, mind and strength” (Mark 12:30). This is not doing something thinking that God
will give us something good in return.
This is expressing our gratitude for what He has already done for
us. We can’t give Him precious jewels or
metals or things that we own. God
created the world, the universe, existence, just by saying ‘let it be so’! The only things left for us to give Him is
our devotion, our love, our commitment to honor Him above all else (He created
that there is a Spiritual explosion forming.
This explosion won’t come because of our tithes and offerings. This explosion won’t come because of all the
‘good works’ we do. It will come because
we have committed to live for Father through our relationship with Jesus Christ
because the Holy Ghost is alive and well within our heart! The giving and the good works will come as we
grow in our love for our Lord and Savior.
As our commitment grows, within our heart, to live for. with and in Him.
that fires have already been kindled for the Spiritual Explosion, but in
retrospect, with the publicity it has received, Asbury may get credit for
igniting it. That’s OK for God will,
ultimately, get the credit and souls will grow in Christ Jesus and ‘men’ WILL
start doing everything Jesus did – and greater (John 14:12)!
Spiritual explosion isn’t just an evangelical, come to Christ and be saved,
work. It will become a work where the
power of the living and eternal God can and will be experienced by ‘average’
To a degree
we can truly say “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in
heaven” (Matt. 6:10)!
God desires that none perish but that all come to salvation (2 Peter 3:9), He
knows that not all will receive His free gift of eternal life (Matt. 7:21).
our Father, for what is already happening, but praise His holy name for that
which is to come!
