A Spirit Of Prayer
The following program is sponsored by the national prayer chambal. Welcome to pilgrim's progress. I'm red greenlee from the national per chapel. I have a scripture for you. Found in luke the eleventh chapter so i save you. You must keep on asking and it will be given to you. You must keep on seeking and you will find. You must keep on knocking. And it will be open to you for everyone asking receives and the one seeking will find and to the one knocking. It will be opened now. Which father of you. If the sun will ask for bread you will not give him stone will he. Or even a fish he will not instead will not give him a stone or you've been a fish. He will not instead of a fish. Give him a snake will he. Or even if he might ask for an egg he will not give him. A scorpion will he. Then you being evil know how to give good gifts to your children. How much more will to father from. Heaven give the holy spirit to the ones asking him. Pentecost is coming. This sunday is pentecost sunday fifty days after first fruits. We're two loaves of bread. One for jews. One for gentiles will be low will be lifted up before god. The harvest is on and look at the field and it truly is ready for harvest. I sat last night in a pro group and there were there was a millennial there and i listened to this millennial described the absolute confusion of their marriage. The confusion and the total lack of understanding regarding the institution of marriage. We live in a culture of institutionalization institution simply meaning a group of people. Organize themselves together. And they accept certain understandings based on those understandings. They live in peace one with another. There are primary institutions in our land. One in the most basic is family family is being destroyed in our culture today the fundamental institutional understandings of family have been cast aside simple things like when a couple would marry years ago. It meant they would live together. It meant they would sleep in the same bed today. Many millennials if they find any kind of discomfort with the person they're living with or married to they simply bail and go do what's comfortable for them so if one likes it warm and one likes it cold. They don't sleep in the same bed instead. They separate so they can be comfortable. That's against the american institution of marriage. Now you can argue with me. And and i understand. There are many ways styles of marriages. But i'm speaking about the institutional understanding of marriage leave it to beaver. The early fifties forties. Understanding of marriage was where were two people struggled together to find the financial resources to buy a house and to get a car into to find work today. Those institutional understandings have been cast out and there's nothing to replace them except anarchy. There's no deep spiritual hunger. There's no clarity about who jesus is. in fact. Recent poll forty three percent of millennials. Don't even believe there is a god and they don't care they're busy living their lives however they wanna live them our cultures going through a radical transformation. Where it's gender fluid we don't even know what our genders are in america anymore. We've cast off the understanding of a man and a woman. This is not new. A man and a woman have been the human understanding for six thousand years but in our generation suddenly there are fifteen or so jen genders. It's no longer a male and a female. A got kicked out of the canadian army because he dared to say that a man could not have a baby. I'm just stunned by what i see happening. And then even more stunning to me is the lack in our culture of any kind of spirit of prayer at a time when we are watching our culture collapse and disintegrate at a time when we see tyranny coming in and ruling the day when we see tyrannical wicked men and women take charge of the levers of government and institute dishonesty. How many americans will believe the next election that it can be fair. I suspect very few. I personally totally doubt the integrity of our american election system. I mean started back with with john. F. kennedy who chicago. They cheated and they stole the election for kennedy. Just been rumors of this and people have talked about it. But now it's right in our face in arizona and michigan in california just today very burdened with a spirit of prayer. I've been. I've been crying up before. God i've been weeping. Before the lord for america for the millennials. So i come to pray today and i'm asking god to give us a spirit of prayer that we would cry aloud.

But lord without the institution there seems to be no unity no guidance. No no love for you. Jesus at least the institution preserves a little bit of a biblical knowledge even though most are defeated the lord masking for a vibrant alive church. That is a body not an institution not a culture lord. Police would you come and minister to our hearts today. My heart aches church today. My heart aches for the millennial generation. Lord it's already too late for most in my generation. They've already sold out to lust and money power prestige. But lord these millennials. They're struggling such anarchy and confusion on every hand in their lives. Lord i believe their hearts are open to a straight word. If given up on you. God and they've given up on the church many of them they've turned instead to the can. They've turned to to buddha. Lord one one couple on their home. They have pagan gods made of wood. That's the decoration. They have a fat buddha. They believe in karma lord. They don't have any understanding of of what it means to be a christian mort. We haven't gotten the job done.

And the only answer is a revival of holiness revival of morality a revival of the presence of the holy spirit. You can be satisfied in the institutional church. But it's dying. Are you gonna die with it or do you want something more. I want something more. I'm not going to be satisfied after an cost. The breaking out of the holy spirit colleagues seven seven five three four zero seven eight zero. I had to take my car in yesterday. The brakes locked up on it. There were smoking a friend. Took me. I'll tell you who it was our our dear brother pugh. You drove from springfield. Pick me up at the car repair shop yesterday and then took me to get my car this morning and i could will pray for a new car on need a new car. It has almost two hundred thousand miles and it's dying but you know what i can't pray for a new car tried and it's the holy spirit doesn't answer. I know why he knows what i need before i ask. He can provide new car very quickly. The issue is not what need in terms of a new car. It's not even in terms of what. I need to pay for the radio bill this month. You'll take care of that. He'll move an open the hearts of people to give what's on his heart is the dead and the emptiness in the falseness of his people and of the church on his heart are what's happening with the millennial generation in what's happening with with our children the utter confusion of genders. I've always liked the logos. I've given many gifts to children. They like to play with them. And then i noticed today. They're coming out with a transgender logo. Set broke my heart. These corporations are are giving way to a minority and an illuminating. Those of us. Who call ourselves christians. Now the lord's concern is for the salvation of men and women. Would i need the tools i need. A car is a tool. It gets me from point a to point b. so i can testify and witness about jesus. It's not about a car. This radio broadcast is simply a tool in the hand of god to reach the lost. He'll move in the hearts of people to to cover that cost. I know he always has. He always will eat told me he would know what's on god's heart on god's heart is the repentance of the church the holiness in the righteousness of his people that they get ready because jesus is coming again lord i just i can't see it i have to print it. You are the almighty. You are the el shaddai. You're the provider of everything. Life is held in your hands. My life is in your hands. Jesus in the life of every person listening right now. It's in your hands. Your church is in your hands. And i come asking at this time of pentecost i come asking where the harvest we're surely. It is rotting on the vine for. Surely it's being lost because the church is full of cuteness and entertainment and false teaching about the christian lies. Jude is very clear about that. Peter is very clear about it. The apostle john first john the third chapter was very clear about it. Lord paul in romans six was very clear. Lord there's no excuse for this wicked teaching now that you can't ever leave your sin. Would your church is head false pastors. Come in you predicted in your sermon. On the mount you said false. Teachers will come. What i'm asking for. Change that this tool of a radio broadcast would be sent across america. Asking that these youtube videos would be would be sent out over. America and that people would hear and respond and become concerned and become passionate and that you would pour out a spirit of prayer upon your people lord. We're so dead. We're so busy. With all of our foolishness everybody has to make more and more money. Everybody has to survive. Lord we're not going to survive. We're going to die in our sin. If there is not a revival tired of softspoken effeminate men who were please who are afraid to say it like it is i. Thank you for those men and women who will stand up and be very blunt and very kind and very loving but very straight and say look. We're in danger. Jesus is coming again and we're not ready and we're going to be swept away and we're going to be cast into the fire if there is not a great revival of godliness in land lord. This message has to go out please. Lord please lord. I'm asking for a spirit of prayer amass for a passionate crying out to you. For the millennials who are the hardest hit by this wickedness who were being deceived. Who struggling just to find a sense of reality who have such a strong sense of entitlement. Lord would you send forth your gospel. We've made so many mistakes. I've made so many mistakes. Is it any wonder that we've not received the fullness of pentecost and our age lord in your early years of the nineteen hundred you pour out your spirit on kathryn kuhlman on others but many of them misused and abused it and grieved you and you withdrew now. Lord it's been. It's been many years since we've seen any real revival in america older. Been some small local manifestations. Like what happened. In pensacola florida lorded transform the community. It wasn't like the welsh revival. Wasn't like the jonathan edwards. The third grade awakening hasn't happened lord. The churches not even ready to begin to receive it and yet i've never in my life seen the church at such a low state as it is in right now such wickedness on every hand pleasant effeminate preachers pleasing the people in tickling their ears. Telling them what they want to hear giving them joel. Seen smiles lord lord. My heart is so grieved. Why spirit is so broke lord. We have teachers today. Who who lecture but not who cry out not who cry out against the sin and the wickedness of our age mighty caught. Would you come with power. Please lard right now.
