    All things are possible with God.
    Galatians 5:22-23 (New International Version)

    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

    What are my fruits today?

    "Moral standards" are a lot like lighthouses: they exist to help us stay on course as we sail through life. But we have to steer BY them, but not directly AT them. Lest we end up marooned on the shoals of perpetual self-righteousness.

    Yes!

    The Wesley/Whitefield revivals could be said to be general revivals, there can be no doubt and no historian denies that British society was transformed from top to bottom, there have been major outpourings and movings of God's Spirit since, they have been remarkably targeted or localised for example the Welsh revival or the Irish revival.

    The work of the great American evangelist D.L.Moody was significant.

    There has been revivals among college students, The Salvation Army was revival among the poorest and dispossessed members of society.

    Then there have been signifant specialised outreaches to sections of society like seamen for instance.

    But revivals like the Wesley/Whitefield Methodist one are something rare.

    How many have heard the phrased question "Why does revival tarry?"

    I have an insight into that.

    This must be one of those 'insider' type questions. "Revival" of what? Why does the western church need revived, is it dead?

    Interestingly some see that the western church is in need of revival others think not, I think the western church is on her last legs. Americans will not see it quite so readily as Europeans.

    In Britain for example only two in every hundred people attend church on Sunday...that is ALL churches. France is even more shocking....why do you think so many atheist posters are from Britain? Bible christianity is the only taboo subject I know of, can talk about anything else you like.

    But remember this Americans, the gospel once thrived in Britain and was spread throughout the world.

    Spurgeon prophesied a 150 years ago that the chapels of his day which then overflowed with people would be emptied out if crucial gospel truths were to be allowed to fall by the wayside.

    The chapels are still there in every town, village and city, two or three to a street....but they are now turned into community centres, business offices, mosques and I wot not what else.

    While there's a colonel of truth in what you say, Knight would be well within his rights to deal out corporal punishment, if only in private





    besides, shouldn't you be busy making sure that 4% of your skyscrapers are built upside down?

    In theory I would say yes. Let me qualify by saying what revival is and isn't. Revival isn't God moving people against their will like chess pieces or emotional falling all over the floor. Revival is totally dependent on the choices of the individual members of the Body of Christ. Will the Body in the West choose the submit itself to praying for their country and voting for godly leaders? Will they choose to get involved in evangelistic efforts? Will they choose to educate their kids in a godly manner? True revival changes the culture around it. It all boils down the decisions made by the Christians themselves. America is turning into a cesspool because the Church has fallen down on its job and taken up a live and let live attitude. Revival cannot happen under these conditions.

    If this is what he means, then no. He says here "my people". Do you know who he is talking to and why?
    Jesus saves completely. http://www.climatedepot.com/ http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

    Titus 1

    For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped

    Ephesians 5

    11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret
