“The pride of man will be humbled and the loftiness of men will be abased; and the LORD alone will be exalted in that day, but the idols will completely vanish. In that day men will cast away…their idols of silver and their idols of gold, which they made for themselves to worship, in order to go into the caverns of the rocks and the clefts of the cliffs before the terror of the LORD and the splendor of His majesty, when He arises to make the earth tremble.” (Isaiah 2:17-18; 20-21, NASB)
However, for those of us whose trust and salvation is in Jesus Christ, we know this:
“Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18, NASB)
Brothers and sisters, do NOT miss the revival of the Church that is happening right now…even though it doesn’t look like we thought it would. We’ve prayed for it for so long, and now it is upon us. Many of our idols have been cast away, and we have been drawn back into our homes as families.
Let us fan this ember of revival in our homes today…
Fathers, pastor your families like you are called by God to do…read and study Scripture with those who God has entrusted you to lead. Do not worry if you think you are not qualified…if you are indwelt by Holy Spirit, He will teach and guide you…just ask Him to do so. (John 14:26; Nehemiah 9:20; Matthew 10:19-20; Mark 13:11; Luke 12:12; 1 John 2:27)
Mothers, nurture the spirits of your children as the evangelists they will soon become. Demonstrate to them a sincere faith, just as Timothy’s mother and grandmother did for him (2 Timothy 1:5), because this sincere faith will be as a shield that will extinguish the fiery darts of the evil one (Ephesians 6:16).
And, when this ember soon becomes a flame empowered in the fullness of Holy Spirit, be ready to join together with other flames across this nation to set it ablaze with the glory of Jesus Christ!
