FORGIVENESS Brings REVIVAL
-by Tony Langton. 

A few days ago a minister friend of mine traveled to Kentucky to 
preach in a church.  Shortly before he arrived, the pastor's wife 
was stricken with illness.   She requested prayer for healing, but 
before she was prayed for, a man in the church asked her some 
important questions.  He asked, "When did this illness start and
what was happening in your life when you got sick?"   She
answered by saying her illness started about the time a major 
incident occured in their church daycare, in which she was 
involved.  The Lord  revealed to this woman that she had critically 
judged some people involved in the daycare incident.  She 
repented of this sin and was healed, which set  the stage for
what God was going to do next. 

Later my  minister friend showed up to teach, among other things, 
about the crucial need  to forgive those who had wronged them 
so they could be right with God.   The Lord moved there in a 
remarkable way as the Holy Spirit uncovered unforgiveness in 
the leaders and the congregation. Many church people there 
were convicted that God wanted to clear up all the relational 
"viruses" before God could descend upon them in power.  

My friend said that he personally prayed with approximately 40 
people who were seeking repentance and wanting to make things 
right with others in a congregation of about 150 folks.  This is the 
beginning of a true revival. I believe there will be an increased 
movement of God in the future, but much of it will be preceded by 
a time of great adversity where everything that can be shaken  
will be shaken.  In the middle of this crisis I believe there will be 
an outpouring of God's Spirit.  The Lord is giving His church the  
forewarning so that we can have a song of praise in our hearts 
beforehand and be prepared to help others. 

Are there any relationships that you need to clear up?
