“The Purpose: ‘I Will Do a New Thing’”

www.pmchurch.tv

□  A Text Message and a Story

  •   The story of Pavel—Ron Clouzet, Adventism’s Greatest Need: The Outpouring of the Holy Spirit
  •   3 Key Ingredients to Transformational Revival:

 D
 U
 E

□  Isaiah 43:19, 44:3

 God’s “new thing”: “I will pour out My on your .”

□ Isaiah 62:6, 7

  •   New Living Translation: “O Jerusalem, I have posted watchmen on your walls; they will pray to the LORD day and night for the fulfillment of his promises. Take no , all you who pray. Give the LORD no until he makes Jerusalem the object of praise throughout the earth.”
  •   The Voice: “Tirelessly God—give Him no rest—until He reestablishes Jerusalem and makes it worthy of praise throughout the whole world.”
    •   “Jerusalem” = Zion = people of God OT = church NT “called out ones”
    •   “Watchmen” = people who make an extraordinary commitment to pray on behalf of the community of faith = intercessors of the first degree = anonymous and often unrecognized = who demonstrate before God a D-U-E uncommon but not unrewarded = for God names them as the spiritual sentinels of His people.
    •   But we cannot defer to them our own divine calling to experience D-U-E.
  •   Mark Batterson: “Desperate times call for desperate measures, and there is no more

    desperate act than praying . There comes a moment when you need to throw caution to the wind and draw a circle in the sand. There comes a moment when you need to defy protocol, drop to your knees, and pray for the . There comes a moment when you need to muster every ounce of faith you have and call down from heaven.” (The Circle Maker: Praying Circles Around Your Biggest Dreams and Greatest Fears 84)

  •   Thus our “preseason of prayer” counting down to the new year on this campus.
  •   Christ’s Object Lessons: “ [D-U-E] for the Holy Spirit. God stands back of every promise He has made [Isaiah 43:19; 44:3]. With your Bible in your hands say, I have done as Thou hast said. I present Thy promise, ‘Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.’ . . . When with earnestness and intensity [D-U-E] we breathe a prayer in the name of Christ, there is in that very intensity a pledge from God that He is about to answer our prayer ‘exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.’ Ephesians 3:20.” (147)
  •   BONUS PROMISE: “The more earnestly and steadfastly we ask, the will be our spiritual union with Christ. We shall receive increased blessings because we have increased faith.” (Christ’s Object Lessons 146)
  •   The story of James A. Stewart and a revival in Europe
  •   Will you join me in D-U-E praying in this preseason of prayer?

    Isn’t D-U-E due now?
