“Thanks for prayers! This is probably the best teaching atmosphere I have ever experienced in India. Two brothers were in the teaching the whole time with each one taking turns translating. We have about 150 in training and many are Tamil speakers. They translated a couple chapters of God’s Plan for His Church for them and want us to go ahead with the Tamil translation and ship as soon as possible. The printing that Philip did looks exceptional.” (Tim)
What is needed everywhere is for the Spirit to ignite a fresh work and help persons become free from ‘old traditions’ and have a fresh passion for the Lord and His Word. It is not totally clear why Paul said this, but he told Timothy, “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you” (2 Timothy 1:6). This letter was written during a general decline in the Church as chapter four indicates. Paul wanted to “reactivate a gracious gift from God” in Timothy. Whatever that gift was, we are not told, but the gift was from God and it was critical that Timothy use it in a time when “people will not endure sound teaching” (4:3).
Whether it is personal or corporate revival, we must first realize it is needed in ourselves before it can be experienced by the Church. Revival of a different kind is needed all over the world – a RETURN TO SCRIPTURE AND ITS AUTHORITY AND SUFFICIENCY! Only the Spirit can awaken this.
