#10 Spiritual Vitality

C. Peter Wagner tells us that, Although 
much of Argentina is still struggling in the 
grips of the rulers of darkness, the light of 
the gospel of Christ is bursting forth as never before.

God is raising up a company of world-class Argentine leaders He is using to open the 

    "eyes [of the Argentines] and to turn them from darkness 
     to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they 
     may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among 
     those who are sanctified by faith in Me"(Acts 26:18).

J. Philip Hogan, until recently executive director of the Division of Foreign Missions of the Assemblies of God, knows as well as anyone what God is doing in the world.

His international travels have taken him to Argentina many times over many Years. He is amazed at what he now sees in Argentina. Hogan says,

    "Argentina is in the throes of an absolute sovereign 
     revival unheard of in the history of that country. I know 
     of churches where they have taken the seats out so 
     they can pack more people in."

Edgardo Silvoso of Harvest Evangelism, one of the leading experts on the Christian movement in Argentina, said in 1987,

    "The church in Argentina has grown more in the last 
     four years than in the previous one hundred."

Silvoso's "four years" date back to 1984 when evangelist Carlos Annacondia conducted his first large evangelistic crusade in the city of La Plata. 

Many observers use his as the beginning date of the current outpouring of spiritual vitality in Argentina.

(Be sure to read my post, #11 Evangelist Carlos Annacondia, on the 28th). 

Let’s pray:

   Father, please open our eyes to what all
can be done if we'll pray for Your Spirit to
move on the folks we're concerned for.

   Where there is apathy on my part, I ask
for You to make Your will known so I will
pray more effectively.

   May I begin to see progress in spiritual matters all around me.

   I ask this with expectancy, in the Name of Jesus. A

Today’s quote: Dr. Ed Murphy - "This is the book (The Satanic Revival by Mark I. Bubeck), we have been waiting for to confront satanism head - on. It will shock you, challenge you, and humble you. It not only exposes evil, it will drive you to your knees asking for a revival sent by God to defeat the satanic revival. It is must reading for every Christian who years for the kingdom of God."

Today’s Bible verse: Prov. 18:21 "The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit." (NIV)

Some thoughts today: 4 ways to make your love felt for those you care about: 

    1. Focus attention on them when they're speaking.
    2. Give meaningful touches.
    3. Picture a special future for them with affirming words.

- What does the Scripture say? What context is it in, and what's in it for me?
