There was a song several years ago that had these words, “The devil’s in the phone booth

, dialing 9-1-1….”. I don’t know that the devil uses a phone, but if he does, I’d think he’s dialing 9-1-1 right now. There is a church on fire at 172 Poole St. and she’s ablaze with the fire of God and he doesn’t like it. He desires to put out the fire. He’ll use every conceivable way of doing it. He’ll cause you to be “busy” so that you can’t attend the services. He’ll cause you to be “distracted” so you won’t focus on what God saying or doing. He’ll create confusion so that you’ll be hesitant in becoming a “fire-walker”. Do not be ignorant of the devil’s devices. I challenged you on Saturday night to “guard your heart”. The enemy of our soul knows full well and our heart drives us in how we deal with the issues of life. If he can attack your heart, divide your heart, confuse your heart….. he can keep you from experiencing the fullness of what God wants to do in your life and in our church. Don’t be confused about what is going on. GOD IS MOVING!!!!! REVIVAL FIRE IS HERE! We had probably the best prayer meeting Monday night as we have had in a long time. We had a great number of people, including young people. We prayed until we prayed through and the Holy Ghost confirmed our efforts by speaking a word to us through tongues and the interpretation. He told us that “He would show us His glory, but He would hide in the cleft of the rock…… and He would send the fire.” What an awesome time we had! You know you are having revival when people are excited to PRAY! Prayer is one of the ways we continue to throw “wood” on the fire so that the fire will never go out (Lev. 6:13). The Lord also gave me a word during the prayer time. I had gone to the sound booth to switch a CD to use during our “purging” time and the Lord began to talk to me. I found a piece of paper and began to write. This is what the Lord said to me: “I see you and hear you, says the Lord. However, there are still those among you that do not yet hunger and desire me. Do not let them dissuade you from your pursuit of Me. I have not

forgotten the promises I gave to you and I will not be slack concerning My promises. Continue to seek for Me. Continue to search for Me. Continue to desire Me and I will send an all consuming fire that will leave undeniable and un-reversible change. Do not doubt Me. Do not limit Me. Do not forsake Me and I will confound you and all those that are willing to walk into the fire. Do not be afraid. My fire is bringing a purging and a light for these last days. Do not be distracted and caught off guard. The light lies before you so burn for me and let Me use you to fulfill my Word. Have I not spoken and will I not do it, says the Lord.”
I’m imploring all of you to walk straight for the fire. Don’t be afraid of what God is doing. I tell people at the altar, if God is giving this to you, it will not hurt you nor harm you. What God gives is good. Hey, this fire is from God. It can not hurt you nor harm you. It is good. HEAD FOR THE FIRE! That means that you cannot allow anything to prevent you from being in these services. God is pouring Himself out in fulfilling His promise. But there is work for us to do. We become the catalyst for the fire continuing to burn. We “chop the wood”. He sends the fire, we keep it burning. Feed the fire!!!!!!! Pray, seek God, read His Word, fellowship with others that are on fire, line yourself up to that Word and if something isn’t right, GET IT RIGHT! Pray, seek God, read His Word, fellowship….. and oh yeah….. PRAY, SEEK GOD, READ HIS WORD, FELLOWSHIP!!!!! Revival Services continue on Wednesday Evening at 7:00 PM. No regular classes, but then we aren’t having regular church either !!!!! Then again Revival Saturday evening at 7:00 PM. Invite your family, friends, enemies, co-workers, anybody and everybody! When we get revived we then become evangelist. Once the church is right, we should began to see more and more people coming to faith in Jesus and accepting Him as Lord and Savior. OH I’M SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!! Several things will be happening on March 28th: 1) PALM SUNDAY! We will be having some more celebration on that day…..YOU CAN’T MISS IT!!!!!!! 2) Church membership…. If you’ve been attending here and you know this is where you need to call “home”, this is your opportunity. If you’ve been saved and know you need to place yourself

under a church covering, this is your opportunity. Anyone needing to become a member, either by transfer or new membership, needs to meet with Pastor Terry March 28th at 9:30 in the CLC Building (across the street from the Sanctuary). Come to the door marked “staff” and walk straight into the room directly in front of the door. 3) Water Baptism…. If you have been saved over the last several months, you need to be baptized. We believe that all believers need to follow the Lord in “believer’s baptism”. It is an outward sign of an inward work. If you would like to be baptized, call the church office, 476-2977, and leave your name.
