Nah 1:9 What do ye imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.
Psa 2:1-2 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying..
God is on the move and is bent on accomplishing His purpose.History has showed that in almost every move of God,the enemies of our soul and of our Lord have always stood to oppose it with his dirty tactics.And today is no different… nevertheless the counsel of the Lord it shall stand.The devil knows that a true Holy Ghost revival puts him and his cohorts on their toes and gives him a lot of jobs to do,that’s why he tries to fight against revival from happening or spreading out.
Despite that we have an enemy who doesn’t want the Will of God ”Revival” to break out fully and be sustained in our lives and churches,yet permit me to say that we are our greatest enemy.God has given each and everyone of us free will to make a choice.And God cannot intrude into our free will and not even the devil has the right,unless we let him. Yes God wants to revive us,yet we still have to make a choice if we want it or not.Just like salvation God wants to save all but the choice is always left to the sinner if he/she wants to be save or not by accepting or rejecting Jesus. God cannot force His Will on anyone,if He knocks and the door is opened He comes in and if not,He doesn’t force it open. Nonchalant attitudes towards revival from Christians is a stumbling block that should be taken out of the way. Seems so many Christians don’t care for revival (God’s will) to be done,rather they care for their business,jobs,politics,career,families and so on.May God help such Christians because they are playing with their lives and eternal destinies and that of their children and generation.
Corporate revival in the church have been hindered or delayed in the past especially by elders and leaders in the church who have no fear of God and are insensitive to the Spirit of God,hence becoming a readily tool in devil’s hand to fight against God and His ‘revival work’.Sorry to say,that some so-called Christians have allowed themselves to be used by the Devil indirectly to fight against revival and revivalists. Spurgeon preached a sermon ”How Saints may help the devil” one way is to discourage the efforts that are being put forth to beat the devil.
Right now there’s revival going on in the spirit shortly before Jesus comes to take us home,why not be part of it.
When you fight against revival you fight against God and when you fight against those God has chosen by divine Will to use, you still fight against God.Billy Sunday said in Indianna 1922,”the Devil hates a revival but he is dead stuck on the attitude that some preachers and members take toward it: to try weaken the hands of those who are trying to make headway against the Devil; to discourage others from uniting their efforts and influence”.
Judge yourself so that you will not be judge…,are you fighting what God is doing both directly and indirectly?If so,please repent!!!
