(This is the third post of a message on the 80th Anniversary of Calvary Temple, now known as Northwest Family Church)
If we will follow Him, our future is brighter than our past!
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray, then I will hear from heaven.”
God wants to bless us with exponential growth! But he wants it to come from winning new people to Christ!
Some of us came out of untenable situations in churches to a place of healing and restoration in the place. Calvary Temple is unique in that respect.
It is time for us to “stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.” He wants to grow us, not just numerically, but spiritually as well!
It is time to move beyond issues over which we have no control and not give Satan a place where he can sow discord and malcontent.
God’s will is to use this place as a “saving station.” We need a revival of such proportions that a place of sinfulness such as the casino would have to close—and we would need their building. Only God can do that—but He can do it!
Eighty years of colorful history. As we move into the fourth or fifth generation of our existence, what kind of history is this generation going to write? Should Jesus come in this generation (and He could!), will we be found watching and waiting? Will we be found doing the “Father’s business?”—Winning souls for His kingdom. “For God so loved Auburn that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him, will not perish, but have everlasting life.”
My belief is that if we are doing what God has called us to do, we will not give Satan a place in our life. We will be so consumed in prayer and obedience to God’s will, that much of what is thrown at us will bounce off the shield of faith.
I want to see revival where the blind see, cancers are healed, the deaf hear, but most of all, where a lost, dying generation can find hope, peace and restoration.
If you don’t know Jesus as your Savior, you can make that choice today. You can be a part of what God is going to do.
