“The hand of the Lord came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord, and set me out down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones. Then He causes me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley and indeed they were very dry. And He said to me, “Son of man can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord God, You know.” (Ezekiel 37:1-3)
I have been concerned about our county and the direction it is taking. I have been just as much concerned about our churches. I see too many dead dry bones in our churches. The power of God has left our churches and we must get this power back if we are to save our county. I am just like Ezekiel when God asked him if these bones can live. Can our churches live again and can the power of God be back in our churches and our nation? His answer was, yes, but only by the power of God.
To know that this can happen, all we have to do is look at the early church. “The early church was walled in on one side with the mightiest military machine in history, the power of Rome. It was walled in on the other side with the Greek intellectualism. It was blocked ahead by the monopoly the Jews thought they had on God. These men and women who turned the world upside down had no colossal intellectual capacity, no great financial backing, no social standing. They were about the most despised men in and around Jerusalem. And yet they broke out somehow.” (Leonard Ravenhill) How did this happen? How did this motley crew of men and women set the world on fire for God?
They tapped into the power of the Holy Spirit. They prayed and God sent the Holy Spirit and the power settled on them. If we are to make a difference in our world today, we must have the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. If you don’t feel that power in your life, start praying that God will send this power into your life. If we do this, we will see Revolution God’s Way.
