The only hope for the Church is a move of The Holy Spirit which will empower the Church to live in personal purity and proclaim the gospel with the power of God.
The standard of piety in the Church today is deplorably low. The spirit of the world has crept in and attached to the heart of the Church so that leaders reject the subject of personal holiness in order to fill seats and bank accounts. Leadership today argues to maintain the use of alcohol and nicotine rather than exhorting separation from the world. It is a Church which no longer prays; a Church where success seems to be measured by wealth and the dollar has become god.
Have you ever asked why we don’t see the power today like we read the early Church had? The early Church had no sound systems or great cathedrals, but it had the baptism of the Holy Ghost! She had an anointing that cut to the heart and brought a demonstration of power. The early church faced the powers of darkness in a hostile world and overcame.
We need this baptism again!
Christian, will you begin to pray, “Lord, make me hungry for you like never before! Baptize me in your Holy Spirit that I might have power over sin and the ability to witness in Your anointing.”
This may scare some, but are you at least willing to pray, “God I’m willing to be made willing.”
We need a fresh Pentecost from the pulpit to the street!
