Live Broadcast: 100 Days of Prayer Culmination - 24 hours Prayer Marathon
Throughout history, God has called His people to a deeper spiritual experience and renewed commitment to live totally for Him.
Abraham received the invitation to walk closely with God and to live a life of faithfulness. Moses had this experience through a powerful wilderness encounter, as well as a daily experience as he led God's people out of captivity. The call to revival and reformation has been issued through prophets like Elijah and kings like Josiah. John the Baptist called for spiritual revival and reformation of lifestyle as he anticipated the coming of Jesus. The disciples were led to this experience, and it opened the door to receive the Holy Spirit in its fullness for the proclamation of the Gospel.
Before the disciples carried the gospel from Jerusalem to the ends of the earth, they were first instructed to wait for the promised gift--the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Like the twelve in the upper room after Christ's ascension, we are confronted with orders to fulfill an impossible task: to proclaim the gospel to the world, that the end may come. (Matthew 28:18-20, Matt 24:14) Just as they were empowered by the Holy Spirit to take the gospel to the nations, we are to have the same experience. Before the disciples carried the gospel from Jerusalem to the ends of the earth, they were first instructed to wait for the promised gift--the baptism of the Holy Spirit. As it was for them, our first work must be to have the upper room experience of confession, repentance, and earnest prayer as we anticipate the gift.
