Revival at IBC Monticello

Posted by AJ Huffman |

Immanuel Baptist Church in Monticello will be having Revival services starting this Mother's Day Sunday morning and going through Wednesday Night. First and foremost I encourage all to come out and listen to Bro. Lee Thomas (author of the book, "Praying Effectively For The Lost"). Come out with and open heart and listen to what the Lord wants to say to you. Be in prayer about this Revival, not only for others, but for yourself. Pray that God opens your heart and pours in his love, and fire, and will for your life.

Our Prayer Ministry at IBC set up a 24 hour prayer chain for this Revival, members signed up for a 30 minute slot, to pray for Revival. I signed up for the 1:30am slot last night. I turned off the TV and opened up my Bible and the Lord let me to the 26th chapter of Isaiah. The chapter was entitled "A Song of Praise". After I read that, that's exactly what I began to do, just praise God. Thanking him for saving me, even though I don't deserve anything he has for me. Thanking him for the chance to even be able to come to the throne of God and speak to him. Tears where flowing down my face as I praised my Lord. It was an awesome feeling, nothing like it. So I encourage you to just sing a song of praise. Thank the Lord for what He has done and what He will do in your life. Don't ask for anything, give praise unto the Lord, for He is worthy of All praise. Cause if you don't, the Rocks will cry out. Praise the Lord, and just see what happens.

Isaiah 26

A Song of Praise
1 In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:
We have a strong city;
God makes salvation
its walls and ramparts.

2 Open the gates
that the righteous nation may enter,
the nation that keeps faith.

3 You will keep in perfect peace
him whose mind is steadfast,
because he trusts in you.

4 Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.

5 He humbles those who dwell on high,
he lays the lofty city low;
he levels it to the ground
and casts it down to the dust.

6 Feet trample it down—
the feet of the oppressed,
the footsteps of the poor.

7 The path of the righteous is level;
O upright One, you make the way of the righteous smooth.

8 Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws,
we wait for you;
your name and renown
are the desire of our hearts.

9 My soul yearns for you in the night;
in the morning my spirit longs for you.
When your judgments come upon the earth,
the people of the world learn righteousness.

10 Though grace is shown to the wicked,
they do not learn righteousness;
even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil
and regard not the majesty of the LORD.

11 O LORD, your hand is lifted high,
but they do not see it.
Let them see your zeal for your people and be put to shame;
let the fire reserved for your enemies consume them.

12 LORD, you establish peace for us;
all that we have accomplished you have done for us.

13 O LORD, our God, other lords besides you have ruled over us,
but your name alone do we honor.

14 They are now dead, they live no more;
those departed spirits do not rise.
You punished them and brought them to ruin;
you wiped out all memory of them.

15 You have enlarged the nation, O LORD;
you have enlarged the nation.
You have gained glory for yourself;
you have extended all the borders of the land.

16 LORD, they came to you in their distress;
when you disciplined them,
they could barely whisper a prayer.

17 As a woman with child and about to give birth
writhes and cries out in her pain,
so were we in your presence, O LORD.

18 We were with child, we writhed in pain,
but we gave birth to wind.
We have not brought salvation to the earth;
we have not given birth to people of the world.

19 But your dead will live;
their bodies will rise.
You who dwell in the dust,
wake up and shout for joy.
Your dew is like the dew of the morning;
the earth will give birth to her dead.

20 Go, my people, enter your rooms
and shut the doors behind you;
hide yourselves for a little while
until his wrath has passed by.

21 See, the LORD is coming out of his dwelling
to punish the people of the earth for their sins.
The earth will disclose the blood shed upon her;
she will conceal her slain no longer.
