Scripture of the Month

     In the Month of April many churches begin to think of revival services. After coming out of the winter with it's cold days and long nights, the warmth of spring begins to cheer the heart. In this passage of scripture the Lord is speaking to Solomon about his people and how they can be revived from a spiritual "wintertime". Even though most people won't admit it, we oftentimes find ourselves in a cold despondent state and realize we need revival. The sadness of the matter is not that we need reviving but that when we realize we need it we are not willing to meet God's conditions to have it.

1) THE PLACE OF REVIVAL vs 12 (in the local church)
 A) A place of his presence
 - The Lord's desire (To appear to his people)
 - The Lord's devotion (Solomon, a child of God)
 - The Lord's deliverance (when he speaks to men)
 B) A place of prayer
 - The Lord hears our prayers
 - The Lord honors our prayers
 C) A place of presentation
 - It's a chosen place
 - It's a clean place (chosen to myself)
 - It's a costly place (house of sacrifice)

2) THE PURPOSE OF REVIVAL vs 13 (spiritual rain is cut off)
 A) To see the power
 - The closing (shut up heaven)
 - The chastising (no rain)
 B) To send provision
 - The necessity (the locust to get our attention)
 - The need (substance from the land)
 C) To spare the people
 - The disease (pestilence)
 - The destruction (death among God's people)

 A) There must be a realization
 - who we are
 - who he is
 B) There must be a repentance
 - The position of repentance
 - The prayer of repentance
 C) There must be a redirection
 - Toward deity (seek my face)
 - From depravity (from their wicked ways)

 A) The Lord will hear
 B) The Lord will hide
 C) The Lord will heal
