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 blown?
The ‘miracle 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 all else!).
Father says 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.
God knows 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)!
This 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’ people!
To a degree we can truly say “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matt. 6:10)!
Yet, though 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).
Thank God, our Father, for what is already happening, but praise His holy name for that which is to come!
