“In these lay a GREAT MULTITUDE of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, WAITING FOR THE MOVING OF THE WATER” (John 5:3).
After a great day of soul-winning, teaching, and preaching out in four different villages yesterday and witnessing, once again, the miracle of Psa Thrict village and then reading this passage this morning, I was once again reminded of the GREAT NEED FOR LABORERS in this part of the world. and at the same time, the seemingly lack of conviction, concern and compassion most of God’s people seem to have for a lost and dying world!
Nearly 2,000 years ago a GREAT MULTITUDE of powerless, blind, and crippled folks were WAITING and longing for a MOVING OF THE WATER. If the water wasn’t MOVED and if someone was not willing to help them to the water, they were left in their impotent, blind, and crippled condition.
As long as the waters remained still the hurting and the helpless remain untouched by God’s healing power!
Today, there’s a GREAT MULTITUDE of spiritually powerless, blind, and crippled folks who are WAITING for a MOVING OF THE SPIRIT upon God’s church that will result in a great army of laborers to be thrust into the harvest fields to bring to them the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ!
UNLESS THERE IS A MOVING OF GOD’S SPIRIT IN HIS CHURCH TODAY, THE HURTING AND THE HELPLESS OF THE WORLD WILL REMAIN UNTOUCHED BY THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST!
“If half the world is without the Gospel, common sense tells me that we should emphasize that half. Why do we spend 99.8% of our missions money on the half that already has the Gospel and only two-tenths of one percent on the other half? I am not God but that doesn’t seem like common sense to me…Thank God that we can have orderly, timely church services. But just around the corner there are 3.2 billion who are on their way to hell, and we will never get to them if they are just another line item on the missions budget and the regular rules apply. THEY ARE WAITING FOR US!“- Charles Keen
O Lord, revive us again that we might rejoice in YOU and risk it all for those whom YOU love!!!
