If there is one verse in the Bible that ought to grasp our attention, it is this one. Hebrews 10:26, "For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, -" This verse is not talking about sins of ignorance that we commit daily, but the things that we well know are sins and with an attitude toward God that we will do as we wish, for after all, we've been told that we are going to heaven no matter what we do. The question is, "Why would I want to sin in a willful way that would bring disgrace to our Savior who loved us and bled and died and was resurrected for our sins?" In verse 29 of the same chapter, "Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall be thought worthy, who have trodden under foot the Son of Godand have counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, -" May we, in these last times, put a guard on our hearts and souls and mouths, and that we will seriously consider what we are really doing and saying. The criteria, is God honored in how we live and how we are perceived by others? If they see something amiss in us than we know that God has already been aware of it. There are thousands of examples we could site when we consider "sinning willfully", and if you are a believer then we must shy away from anything that would bring shame to our Blessed Lord.  May the Spirit of the Living God guard and protect us from ourselves, the very one who must be surrendered at all times.

Psalm 37:23-24, "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he  delights in his way.  Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down:  for the Lord upholds him with his hand." We have witnessed this past week the upholding of God's hand. What a joy to receive the Word of the Lord with joy and gladness, knowing that it was the Word that showed us what we are and who He is. Living in our own strength has never been sanctioned by the Lord, because He knows our weaknesses and that we are so prone to wander.  Getting our attention is what he excels in and in many hearts, that is what He did. As shepherd, I was saddened to observe that not all of the sheep came up to fed and be nourished. It saddens me because of what is ahead for some. They will be at a disadvantage because preparation was not made in the right season.  God does promise correction to disobedient children, you know. When the church body is not all together, it cripples the church.  It would be like a man with just one leg and one arm: he can still function but he will win no races or fight a good fight. I"m praying that the God of heaven will shake those withered spiritual limbs by whatever means it takes to restore them to usefulness in His kingdoms work.  Revival is not over, it is just beginning.

In I John 5:19-20, we find two things that we must know. " (1) That we are of God and (2) the whole world lies in wickedness. And we know that the Son of God is come, and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true, and we are in Him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This the true God. and eternal life." What a joy and comfort and blessing to know that we are in Christ and He is in us by the Holy Spirit. While we are enjoying these blessings, the rest of the world lies in it's own wickedness and depravity. At some time in our former lives, we were as they are. Living and enjoying sin, not knowing God or his Son, and caring less about our condition. We were happy sinners, making our way to hell. But, by God's grace and mercy he called us, set up an appointment with him and be forced to look at our lives. We were weighed in the balances and found wanting. There, as the Spirit of God won our hearts by the love of Calvary, he called us unto himself. Confession was made and forgiven was granted. Now he is in us and we are in him for eternity. There are questions we must ask ourselves to confirm what we profess to believe. "Is my life showing forth Christ's life in me?" "Is my life now different than it was before my confession of faith?" II Peter 1:10 tells us to "give diligence to your calling and election sure: for if you do these things, you shall never fall."

The prophet Hosea had a sense of urgency in his message to God's people.  In Hosea 5:15, God told him, "I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offense, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me wearly." Hosea's reply to the ultimatum in 6:1-3, "Come and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth." As in Hosea's time, we feel the the Lord has 'returned to his place' as we see the world grow hot with sin and the church grow cold with indifference. What choice does God have? When men turn a deaf ear to His voice through His  Word, then He will go where He is welcomed. But we see the assuring word, "he will revive us and raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.' A reviving is the answer. God told Israel that "your heart is divided." Revival will bring that division back together again. It is not like it would be nice if we could have a revival, it is a necessity; we must have revival or we perish. Repent and return to your first love the Spirit said to the church at Ephesus. We must heed the warning given God or we will be like the church at Laodicea where Jesus is standing on the outside, knocking, and asking for anyone to let him in. O' Lord God, send us revival.

If ever there was a time to pray again the prayer of the Prophet Habakkuk, it is now. Read this prayer and see if this is not so. "O Lord, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid; O Lord, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known: in wrath remember mercy." Hab. 3:1. As we see the goings on in our world, it's like a black storm gathering on the horizon, and we in tornado alley get the picture. How desperately we need to see a work of God in our midst. If we cannot see this then there must be a blindness covering our eyes. Less than a third of the people in Pryor have any constant affiliation with any church. It is hard to meet someone that you can have fellowship with around the Word of God. But, to talk of the things of this world and what this world produces, we'll be gabbing on the street corners all day long. Now, is this not so? Judgment day is coming and we see the clouds forming and what are we doing about it? Revival is the answer. And what is that? It is simply God's people once again receiving God's Word and taking the responsibility of obedience to it. Revival is God's people living the life that God has called us into. That is loving, serving, praying, obedient, faithful, trustworthy, honest, believing, hopeful, patient, etc. Does this depict your life? If it doesn't, then a reviving is the answer for you. We must not turn a cold shoulder to the one who loved us and gave himself for us. God send us revival or we perish!

Sometimes it takes awhile for truth to sink into our minds and hearts. After the resurrection we see "Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things (about the resurrection) unto the apostles. And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not." Luke 24:10-11. How many times had Jesus told his disciples what was to occur in the last of his days on earth? Why are we so slow to believe? We have "a more sure word" than they did, and yet we hesitate in believing what the Word of God says. Take the resurrection for example. What makes us live like the sacrifice for our sin is still in question? By the resurrection, everything that Jesus taught and did was confirmed by his rising again from the dead. At times, we still carry our burdens around with us like a beggar with his worldly goods in a sack on his back. Do we not understand that our burden bearer is alive, not dead and can't hear us? Do we think that He doesn't care? How many times have we read how much he cares for us? Maybe it's because we still want to be in control of our lives, the old "pull myself up by my own bootstraps" mentality, or I don't want to appear weak before others. Wake up! We are weak, we are without strength, we have no control of our future, but we do have a loving Savior who is alive to do that which we cannot do for ourselves. Don't be like the early day apostles who "believed them not." "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In ALL thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6.
