Awaken Now!

By James Robison and Jay Richards February 24, 2013 Words of Life

The theme of our 50th Anniversary Conference this July 18-20 at Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas, is “Awaken Now!” We are celebrating 50 years of ministry and marriage and hope you will join us for the conference. More than ever before we are determined to encourage and help equip the body of Christ to make a difference in our world today.

The only hope we have for peace, security and the divine enabling necessary to share Christ with a world in darkness is to experience another great spiritual awakening. Christ will come for a bride filled with His love, compassion, righteousness and holy boldness. Paul said, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself… which is the fulfillment of the law… and knowing the time that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed. The night is almost gone, and the day is at hand. Let us therefore lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.”[1] This is not only a challenge, it is a command and it is to be obeyed right now!

Jesus taught all who follow Him to pray, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth [in us and through us] as it is in heaven.” This means there is the very real possibility of being the light that dispels the darkness and reveals the correct approach to best solve every problem and challenge we face.

Many of our nation’s leaders are groping in darkness. Jesus proclaims clearly that He is the light of the world and that we have been left here as light and salt, and are to join together in heart harmony with God and holy unity with one another to become a light revealed as distinctly as a city set on a hill. If He told us to pray that His will would be done now, that means it’s possible. We can storm the gates of hell and overcome!

He sends us as sheep in the midst of wolves, but not to be slaughtered. We are to be sheep walking and living in the shadow of the Almighty, the shelter of His wings and with the Great Shepherd guiding and illuminating our path. He says He will prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies. He will calm the troubled water and lead us in green pastures. As children of light we must diligently seek to lead our confused nation and the world out of darkness.

If we fall before Him in brokenness and humility, He is anxious to lift us up and establish our lives and future on the unshakable rock of His truth – truly His Kingdom revealed on earth through the family of faith.
