LISTEN NOW! Greg, John and Pat encourage us not to panic as God is about to do something utterly amazing in the earth today. They discuss many of the moves of God that have taken place throughout history. God has touched the world with powerful moves of His Spirit in the this country through the first and second Great Awakening, through the 1906 Azusa Street Revival, the Asbury Revival, the Argentinian Revival and the Brownsville Outpouring. What people find out is that they can’t do it on their own and they begin to cry out to God. This was true in recent history when Haiti was rocked by an earthquake and many people were screaming in the streets calling out for Jesus. They continued to share about the revival that took place in North Korea in 1907 where leaders got together and began repenting of their own sins to each other and the spirit of God broke out. God’s Spirit broke out in such a powerful way that that the revival lasted for 40 years and the capital of North Korea was dubbed the Jerusalem of the east. God is doing something across our land. When we you see what is happening on a daily basis where everything just about looks upside down you know we are getting closer. One example of this is the former Major in the military Nidal Hassan who was charged with killing 13 people and the attempted murder of 32 more in the 2009 shooting rampage on Fort Hood. The government is trying to classify this obvious act of terror as workplace violence while Nidal Hassan has already stated that he murdered the people as an act of Jihad and would like to be sentenced to death. Don’t panic God is about to do something. He is involved in the affairs of men. The page is turning and we are entering a new season where God is establishing spiritual outpost and hubs across the land to do spiritual battle and combat what will be unfolding. God has a plan and according to Chuck Pierce’s word the governmental leaders are in the place they are because the church is not where she needs to be. Hold on, God is about to do something that will utterly amaze you.
The God who walks in your shoes
Greg, John and Pat discuss how God is the God who has walked in your shoes. The God who truly empathizes with us and truly understands what we go through in life as His creation. Jesus came to earth and one of his functions was that of the High Priest. He did not come in the order of Aaron but rather in the order of Melchizedek. He did not offer blood like High Priest of old that would only cover sin but instead offered his own precious blood that would completely destroy and erase sin in our lives. Jesus is your High Priest who explains you to God. He was all God and all man. He walked on earth 33 years laying down his Godhead to walk as a man to identify and empathize with you. In fact the Bible says that Jesus was tempted in every way yet was without sin. Jesus loved us so much that He laid down his life for us. Hebrews 4:15-16 tells us “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” They encourage us to walk like Jesus walked and take time and make the effort to empathize with others. Truly getting outside of yourself to understand and feel the pain of others.
