Friends, we need to understand the times we live in. The church ought to be a beacon of truth and light. Yet there is so much spiritual apathy and lethargy! We need the person and power of Holy Spirit to awaken us, and make us alive in Christ. We need to come before God with fear and trembling. Today, many preachers attempt to amuse and entertain the crowds. Fewer and fewer would preach on repentance and surrender. A true minister must allow the Holy Spirit to have His way. The great need of this hour is a revival of the Holy Spirit's power.

When we are ablaze with the Spirit, we will hunger for the Word, which has the power to wash and cleanse us. The Word of God is under attack today. Often, the assault is not outright, but subtle. The danger is to add to, or subtract from the Word. We need to get back to declaring the whole counsel of God's Word. Not mixtures. Not half truth and half falsehood, but we must speak the truth in love.

As we are filled with the Spirit and the Word, we will be watchful and sober, spiritually speaking. Watch out! Be alert! We have a responsibility to guard the truth! Defend the doctrines of our faith! Be ready for the rapture! Watch and pray! At the same time, occupy till He comes! Be in the business of winning souls! The priority of the church is to fulfill the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ! Jesus is coming soon! While we are still alive today, let us ask God not for temporal earthly treasures but for eternal treasures!
