God is doing a wonderful new work across the earth through what John Paul II has called the "new evangelization". He stated, "The moment has come to commit all the church's energies to a new evangelization." He prophesied in his teachings that this new evanelization would be "new in ardor, methods, and expression". Many of our Protestant brothers and sisters are saying the same thing about a coming new era of evangelization. SC Ablaze and you are called to be a part of it.
With beginnings at the turn of the 20th century, and fresh outpourings in 1967 and in mid-1990's, and early 2000's the power of God for personal conversion, holiness,and evangelization is being unleashed. The river of God is rising across the earth and we believe that in the end His Glory will cover the earth. "Whenever the Spirit intervenes, he leaves people astonished. He brings about events of amazing newness; he radically changes persons and history. (John Paul II's address to the World Congress of Ecclesial Movements and New Communities on Pentecost 1998) Are you hungry for God? Are you thirsty for more of His Spirit? Do you want the living waters? Do you want the Holy Spirit to intervene in your life or the life of your church and leave you astonished? Would you like to see events of amazing newness? Would you like to see your life, and history itself radically changed?
All across the earth fountains of living water are springing forth and bringing about events of radical newness with a particular expression of unity. Is this a new surprise of the Holy Spirit? We think so. This is taking place in the Vatican, in communities across the world, in evangelical settings, in Catholic settings, and in most areas where the baptism in the Holy Spirit is welcomed. This is happening across all lines and barriers.
A few things are necessary:1. Willingness to grow in personal holiness and to get rid of the sin.
2. A laying aside of our plans and agenda and
3. A thirsting for His work,
4. However He chooses to manifest it.
This move of God is breathing renewed life into the those who are hungry. The truths we have learned come more alive, we experience the awesome Presence of Jesus in worship settings and in meetings hosted by Pope Francis and others. There is a new depth in the use of the "charismatic" gifts, a renewed sense of excitement about unity and much more. Loving one another has become and is becoming the primary mover in the the work of Christian Unity Are you willing to participate in this unity revival? Are you humble enough to admit your need and cry out for it? Many in the body of Christ are praying for revival. God wants to do it. Are you willing to let the Holy Spirit make you holy? Are you willing to let the Lord show you your sinfulness? Are you willing to make the Lord more important than other's opinions? Will you let go of structures and understandings that used to work but no longer do? If so the revival can come through you. Please join us in praying for revival, first in our own hearts and then all over the world.
