MEMORISE: Mark 1:3
The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight
READ: 2 Kings 23:1-8 (KJV)
At various times in history, whenever the people of God appeared to have lost their spiritual antennae, God would usually raise a reformer to start off a revival. In biblical terms, a reformer is a person ordained by God to carry out correctional changes in order to rectify ungodly practices. May we yield ourselves to be used as reformers to ignite the fire of revival in the body of Christ today in the mighty name of Jesus.
Reformers include Josiah, Asa, and Hezekiah – kings who ruled over Israel at different times in history, as well as prophets Ezekiel, Ezra, Nehemiah and John the Baptist to mention a few. The reformation of Asa – king of Judah is summarised in (1 Kings 15:12-13) thus:
“And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made. And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron.” Open Heaven 8 June
True Christians who once pledged allegiance to God could afterwards turn back to live contrary to their avowed beliefs and declaration of faith. Some people come to accept Jesus at the peak of their hopeless situations only to abandon Him after receiving divine solutions to their problems. The Church is currently in a state of regression; many Christians are no longer living according to Gods word but rather, the standards of the world.
We the children of God must be reformers people who would do the right thing no matter the cost. We must be people who will instruct fledgling and backslidden Christians, as well as unbelievers, to completely obey the word of God at all times. God is seeking reformers; are you one?
PRAYER POINT: Father, please help me to be a reformer in these end times, in the mighty name of Jesus.
