SUMMER MIXTAPE – O Come To The Altar

 

God only allows chaos to create an opportunity for impact.

 

Revival is a supernatural move of God where the world bows to Jesus after God wakes up His church to His agenda.

 

We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (NLT)

 

The enemy has thoughts for your life, and if you don’t take them captive, they will take you captive.

 

Then Elijah called to the people, “Come over here!” They all crowded around him as he repaired the altar of the Lord that had been torn down. He took twelve stones, one to represent each of the tribes of Israel, and he used the stones to rebuild the altar in the name of the Lord. Then he dug a trench around the altar large enough to hold about three gallons. He piled wood on the altar, cut the bull into pieces, and laid the pieces on the wood. Then he said, “Fill four large jars with water, and pour the water over the offering and the wood.” After they had done this, he said, “Do the same thing again!” And when they were finished, he said, “Now do it a third time!” So they did as he said, and the water ran around the altar and even filled the trench. At the usual time for offering the evening sacrifice, Elijah the prophet walked up to the altar and prayed, “O Lord, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, prove today that You are God in Israel and that I am your servant. Prove that I have done all this at Your command. O Lord, answer me! Answer me so these people will know that You, O Lord, are God and that You have brought them back to Yourself.” Immediately the fire of the Lord flashed down from heaven and burned up the young bull, the wood, the stones, and the dust. It even licked up all the water in the trench! And when all the people saw it, they fell face down on the ground and cried out, “The Lord—He is God! Yes, the Lord is God!”

1 Kings 18:30-39 (NLT)

 

1. Bow Down before Him

 

  • Promises from God often require a process from you.

 

  • God will not allow your life to be sourced by something that will not sustain your life.

 

2. Come to the End of Yourself

 

  • The altar is not just the place where we feel better. The altar is the place where we become better.

 

  • The place where you come to the end of yourself is the same place where true faith begins.

 

  • It’s often not until you are an impossible situation that God will decide to move.

 

  • Often God’s increases start out invisible.

3. Bring your Sorrows and trade them for Joy
