Revival: What is Next?

Watch the full teaching here April 1, 2018 // This is part twelve of a twelve-part teaching series on revival. A wonderful benefit of being a Bible-believing Christian is that God tells us what is coming, which means we need to actively engage and prepare for this last great revival. First, ask what is ahead for yourself, and how to get ready now. Then, ask what the church needs to do collectively to prepare. Pray and listen to what the Holy Spirit is telling you, and then go after it! What is coming is not an option. Revival is not just a fad that will die, and Satan's powerful lie is that it is just for religious fanatics. To know what is next in revival requires engaging God at the deep

Revival World View

Watch the full teaching here March 25, 2018 // This is part eleven of a twelve-part teaching series on revival. We need to accept our part in ushering the next great revival.

The revival is already underway in places that we thought impossible only a few decades ago: China, Russia, and Vietnam, and it is exploding across Africa, Asia, and South America. It is time to open our eyes, see what is happening, and join in God's plan of worldwide revival. Acts 2:16-21; 3:19-20 #teaching #

Watch the full teaching here March 18, 2018 // This is part ten of a twelve-part teaching series on revival. Joy is very different than happiness. Happiness comes and goes with what is happening in our lives, but joy fills our soul and stays with us regardless of what happens in our lives.

This type of hope is not an intellectual exercise; instead, it is an experience received through the Spirit. Revival Hope is a mass experience where many have this encounter and are filled with hope simultaneously. Through revival hope, God offers us a vision for eternity. Romans 15:12-13 #teaching #revival

Revival Freedom

Watch the full teaching here March 11, 2018 // This is part nine of a twelve-part teaching series on revival. The sanctification of believers is an important part of a revival. This is the long-term process of becoming more and more like Christ. In a revival, sanctification sets us free to continue on our journey. In revival, the journey of sanctification does not happen over years or decades; it moves quickly and powerfully. John Wesley said, “Expect it by faith, expect it as you are, and expect it now.” We pray, “Sanctify me,” “fill me,” “cleanse me.” The answer is delivered through the fire of the Holy Spirit, forcing the rule-filled church to bend. John Wesley said, “Where ever
