Obey God not man….. Copy from fox news story
Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Texas, said American Christians should be prepared for massive fallout if the Supreme Court legalizes same-sex unions.
“We want to stay in the system,” Graham told me in a telephone interview. “We want to work in the system. We want to support our government. We want to obey its laws.”
“But there’s a coming a day, I believe, that many Christians personally and churches corporately will need to practice civil disobedience on this issue.”
The foundation for such a possibility was laid Wednesday morning in Columbus, Ohio where the current and former presidents of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination sent a strong message to the country.
What would it look like if 16 million Southern Baptists engaged in civil disobedience?
“We strongly encourage all Southern Baptist pastors, leaders, educators and churches to openly reject any mandated legal definition of marriage and to use their influence to affirm God’s design for life and relationships,” the statement declared.
“Someone has said that at Pentecost God set the Church at Jerusalem on fire and the whole city came out to see it burn. I tell you if that happened in any church today, within hours the whole of the town would be out to see the burning, and they would be caught in the flames.”

The Price and Power of Revival
I remember those days when you preached at Times Square Church back in the 1990’s. I actually have many of those anointed messages and am still blessed by them to this day. The excerpts of messages that you played today causes one to yearn for the presence of God and to see His glory. These God-sent men are missed greatly by those who have been privileged to witness their ministries in their lifetimes. I recall attending TSC and arriving an hour early so as to get a good seat. I was moved at witnessing the entire altar full of saints crying out to God in deep intercession and prayer for the glory of God. Once a person would leave from a spot, another would come and fill it. I left that place with a deep impression on my heart in witnessing a church hungry and passionate for more of Jesus. I remember telling a dear friend, “I can understand why the preaching is so powerful in this place, the entire sanctuary is saturated in prayer by a people desperate to hear from heaven even before the pastors have arrived”. May God raise up men with an uncompromising anointing that will shake the heavens and help to usher revival in our land.
In regards to jon’s post above, isn’t it time that people in government pass laws protecting a Christian’s right to identify with Christ, to such ends that he need not be required to put two grooms on a cake if he is employed at a bakery, and could say so without fear of getting sued or loosing his job, or if he greets a man who chose to identify himself as a woman, as “sir”, he may do so without fear of being sued or loosing his job, as well as so many other possible situations that may arise in life?
I suppose the purpose of revival as it’s being talked of here is to get to know the Lord.
After all, to get to know someone, isn’t it usually that we are in their presence, and they are in our presence?
But until that happens, if revival is really something God does and it has nothing at all to do with what we do, that is, that there is nothing we can do to cause revival to happen, well then, what should we do in the mean time, until revival happens?
He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well with him: was not this to know me? saith the Lord.
Does anyone else have any verses to share that in specific talk about what to do to know God?
Those are great thoughts and questions.
Revival is getting to know God in a more intimate way in the sense of reviving, restoring and rediscovering Him in a way that was lost or dying. It has to do with a unique refreshing of the presence of the Lord with God’s people, which ultimately spills out into (effects) the community.
Revival is indeed something that God does, and it absolutely does have something to do with what we do as well. Revival comes to a ready people who are longing for and looking for His presence. It often comes through a desperate, seeking people who want nothing more. It is often ushered in with a time of deep soul searching, repentance and prayer. These characteristics don’t guarantee or cause revival, but they are indeed elements that are often associated in place when God does send the rain in such an unusual manner.
The following are just a few verses to your last question.
2 Chronicles 7:13-14
Yes, following on. Hosea 6:3. I suppose there came a time when Job turned aside. I wonder what it was. Prosperity maybe. There was a time when he was right on with the Lord. (see Job 29)
When I think about Job, I remember that it’s important to be aware of what is presently going on, and not dwell on anything about the past as if that is of primary concern. And a man’s theology or knowledge of the wisdom of God isn’t nearly as important as what is presently going on.
It’s been said that God has a present for each of us and this present is his gift to us.
James 1:17 came to mind.
Ray, good points. Though as someone I heard once say “Your doctrine must have legs. It must walk through your life.” Theology is very important, but it must have legs to walk through your life which equips you to navigate through whats presently going on. Both go hand in hand.
