The best is yet to be

A World Destined for Glorious Revival

“R.T. Kendall in 1992 refers to, ‘the post-charismatic era’ when government and people in highest places will come on bended knees to God’s people and ask for help … We are talking about something big… It will be a time when children will be sovereign vessels, an era when ordinary Christians will be equipped with prophetic gifts … We are talking about an awakening that reaches areas, people, places that heretofore were impenetrable without the aid of the media and public relations men and the endorsement of high profile people.

“In 1989 Wesley Richards records his conviction: ‘The signs are clear: the countdown has begun to another great outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The best is yet to be.’ (Asian Revival)”

These notes from “The Revival Study Bible” page 1184, published 2010, spoke to my heart.

Common sense and the Bible say that our most important duty on earth is to learn to love God and one another. “Providential History” (The hand of God in the affairs of men and nations) illustrates that we are slow learners!

It appears to me that God has been doing everything He can to help us learn. The vertical relationship between God and mankind is an individual thing, aided by the fellowship of the church and family.

The horizontal relationship between individuals and individuals is, by definition, a corporate thing. We call it “civil government”.

God’s classwork began long before He inspired the writers of the Books of the Bible. He reveals Himself through the laws of nature (“Natural Law”). Because we did not learn well, that is, we tended to misinterpret the data (the flat earth society), or we simply chose to rebel (the Tower of Babel), God, in His benevolence, gave us the Bible (also called “Revealed Law”), which is much more difficult to misinterpret!

It is important to note that “Natural Law” is discovered by observation and reason. Both human observation and human reason are imperfect. “Revealed Law” (the Bible) is learned by study and prayer and is far more authoritative than “Natural Law” because it was dictated by God Himself. Note that Natural and Revealed Law are from the same source and will never be in conflict.

Consider the events in God’s classroom – God introduces himself to Adam, then Eve. They violate His law and are banished from the Garden. They make a baby and “family” is begun.

Multiple families create civil government.

Civil government is a trial and error thing. Both common sense and Revealed Law try to combat human nature on an up and down learning curve through human history. God created a nation to illustrate vertical and horizontal church and civil government. The Old Testament records its history through anguishing trials and errors in the near east and Egypt.

There is a 400 year historical gap between the end of the Old Testament and the beginning of the New Testament. During that time Alexander the Great and the Greek culture spread out over the known world. There are more efforts to incorporate large civilizations. Finally Rome succeeds to incorporate the Middle-east, Europe, and most of the British Isles. The Scandinavian culture of representative government is added to the mix.

In the midst of the Roman conquest era, the advent of Christ plants a seed that changes everything! The Bible is translated into common languages. That stimulates an explosion in public literacy. That stimulates, in turn, explosions in the arts and sciences as well as in concepts of liberty and government.

The classroom was ready to illustrate the Christian concept of “government by consent of the governed”. America is not a Christian nation because it was formed by Christians. America is a Christian nation because it has a Christian form.

Trace the development of concepts of civil government on a world globe and you discover part of a great circle. Even the details of major culture changing revivals in America follow the path from New England to Azusa Street in Los Angeles. Teacher (God) has invested a lot in these lessons. I believe they will be a launching pad for that “something big” that will sweep across the Pacific, Asia, India, and the Moslem world.

A baptism in righteousness the likes of which the world has never seen!

About Sue Frost

Not a day has passed, since Sue Frost was first elected to Citrus Heights City Council, that I have not lifted her before our Lord.

Sue is now running for her second term on the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors. An important post! I want to help keep her “at the table” for the important years ahead.

California Primaries will be early next year (March 2nd!). It is important to get campaigns rolling early. The invitation to her first campaign event –

Details about the event are below.

We are encouraging people to contribute early to help streamline registration on the day of the event.

Scheduling: 916-874-5491 or supervisorfrost@saccounty.net

District Activities: https://www.facebook.com/SupervisorSueFrost/

News & Info: www.saccounty.net/suefrost ”

In past posts the graphics get scrambled, so I have omitted some of them. The video should come through though.

Bottom line – I enthusiastically endorse Sue Frost for her 2nd term as Sacramento Supervisor.

Many of those receiving this blog post will not be in Sue’s 4th District. All politics is “local”!

If you choose to help support her anyway – That’s a good thing. The number of individual contributions counts for a lot! I hope you will send her a contribution.

Everyone will do well to make a point of meeting the candidates on your respective primary ballots as you have opportunity. Remember – The “Bad guys” will be doing everything they can to keep the “Good guys” from getting their name and message out.

For principled government
