Excerpt of the Day by Art Katz

“The outpouring of the Spirit brings with it the sense of the future, and a church without a future is a depleted entity.  A church that does not anticipate the consummation of the age has lost its identity as the church.  Therefore, when we do not have that future because we do not have the Spirit, we stagnate at the level of conventional and predictable church life, nothing more than a succession of Sunday services.  The evidence of that can be most pointedly seen in our children who are bored with church life, and we often have to drag them by the scruff of the neck to our functions.  They would not be sitting in our congregations waiting for the thing to end, nor would they be drawn off and attracted to other questionable amusements, if we were living in the context of an end.  The general character of our meetings is a terrible indictment against us because we have not raised up for our own children a standard and quality of life that compels their attention and their participation.  We have not persuaded our children that what we are about is earnest and authentic.  Though they may not articulate it, we are to them no more than some kind of adult Sunday culture.”

The Revival that Jesus Went To

Here is an audio message by  Jimmy Tate. Jimmy is a dynamic preacher out of Lafayette, LA. he delivers an insightful and powerful message concerning modern revivals. In modern times Christians have been holding sensational events and conferences claiming them to be revivals and outpourings of the Holy Spirit. Do all of these gatherings weigh up to Scripture?  To answer that question the speaker goes into the gospels to a revival that Jesus actually attended. The answer to the first question then brings us to a second one, “would Jesus attend our modern day revivals?”
