It Was the Best of Times – It Was the Worst of Times

  • Philippians 4:12-13 (NLT) – I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. 13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.

The Church’s finest hour.

  • God is doing something greater than we can understand – Ephesians 3:20
  • What was meant for evil will become the Church of America’s greatest hour – Genesis 50:20.
  • Grace shines brightest in darkness – Romans 5:20 (NKJV) – Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more.

The first revival.

  • Peter compares the Church’s first revival to the book of Joel, chapter 2 – Acts 2:16-18a (NLT) – No, what you see was predicted long ago by the prophet Joel: 17 ‘In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. 18 In those days I will pour out my Spirit
  • But there is supposed to be a greater outpouring – Haggai 2:9 (NKJV) – ‘The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the Lord of hosts.
  • And we, collectively, are that Temple – 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 (NLT) – Don’t you realize that all of you together are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God lives in you? 17 God will destroy anyone who destroys this temple. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.

It’s about the gathering.

  • We, once again, are somewhere in the middle of the book of Acts one and Acts two – Acts 1:14a (NKJV) – These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication
  • This ought to be a prayer as we gather – Isaiah 64:1 (NKJV) – Oh, that You would rend the heavens! That You would come down! That the mountains might shake at Your presence—

There is no plan B.
