When the church is fervently praying for each other and the world, great things happen. People and nations will be changed forever. The power of prayer is ordained by the Lord Jesus Christ. The world WILL be turned upside down when the church prays sincerely and fervently. Jesus tells us that we only have to ask and we will receive. So why doesn't the church turn back to the Lord and ask?
What defines a church that is real? A church that is TRUE?. We have so many different churches. Mega-churches with a budget of millions to a small country church that barely holds 20 people. But none of these make a church. Style does not make a church. Denomination does not make a church. Jesus said: "I will build My church". To make a church true, Jesus has to be Master and Lord over it.
When we pray it is seldom that we do not ask God for something. You could say that all of us are treasure hunters. We ask for His blessings. In order to receive those blessings God is telling us not to conform to the world. Instead we need to set our minds on spiritual things. On the ways of God. And only when we conformed to God are we able to find the treasure.
It is amazing how Christ's preaching is showing the fulfillment of the prophesies of the Old Testament. No other being ever came close to Christ in fulfilling the Scriptures. There are many who receive the Word, but reject it. By the time they come home they go about their lives as if nothing happened. We are to receive the Word and continue to proclaim, even in times of adversity. This is what Jesus did. He devoted His adult live preaching His Fathers Word. Are we doing the same?
