A High Time to Wake Up

To be effective in REACHING PEOPLE FOR GOD in the times in which we live; WE MUST HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING OF THOSE WE ARE TRYING TO REACH.


HOWEVER, WE SHOULD BE OVERLY DETERMINED NOT TO COMPROMISE.


1 Chron. 12:32 And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment. 


  1. A knowledge of the times requires us to KNOW THAT WE ARE DEALING WITH A SOCIETY THAT HAS EXCLUDED GOD FROM ALL LEVELS OF THE PUBLIC


  1. A knowledge of the times requires us to KNOW THAT WE HAV E DESANCTIFIED THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE


  1. A knowledge of the times requires us to KNOW THAT WE HAVE PLACED A COMPLETE OVER EMPHASIS ON MATERIALISM


  1. A knowledge of the times requires us to KNOW THAT WE HAVE DESENSITIZED THE HOLINESS OF HUMAN LIFE 


  1. A knowledge of the times requires us to KNOW THAT WE HAVE OVERLOOKED BLATANT REBELLION TO THE POINT THAT OUR GENERATION HAS NO CONCEPT OF WHAT IS ACCEPTABLE.


  1. A knowledge of the times requires us to KNOW THAT WE ARE DEALING WITH A SOCIETY THAT HAS IGNORED TRUTH FOR SO LONG THEY QUESTION WHETHER IT EVEN EXISTS.


As we consider the times in which we live, it is time THE CHURCH Wake up on so many level from Spiritual Apathy raising the spiritual temperature that leads to REIVAL & RENEWAL FOR ALL WHO KNOW GOD.


  1. We need to WAKE UP FROM WICKEDNESS – 1 Jn. 5:19

1 John 5:19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. 


SOCIETY DICTATES A LIFESTYLE AS IF THERE WERE NO GOD, THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT THERE IS A GOD THAT REIGNS AND RULES THE UNIVERSE OF WHICH ONE DAY EVERY PERSON WILL ONE DAY BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE TO WHAT THEY DID WITH JESUS & WHAT THEY ALLOWED JESUS TO DO THROUGH THEM?


  1. We need to WAKE UP FROM WITCHCRAFT – 2 Thess. 2:10-12

2 Thes. 2:10-12 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. [11] And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: [12] That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 



  1. We need to WAKE UP FROM WILLFUL DISOBEDIENCE – Rom. 1:21-22

Romans 1:21-22 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. [22] Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 


  1. We need to WAKE UP THE DEAD – Eph. 5:14-18

Ephes. 5:14-18 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. [15] See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, [16] Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. [17] Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. [18] And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 


  1. We need to WAKE UP TO CHRIST’S COMING – Rev. 22:20

Rev. 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 


Join us this Sunday at Calvary as we LAUNCH what we pray will be a Springboard for RENEWAL & REVIVAL FOR OUR Connersville Community as LIFE ACTION MINISTRY TEAM WILL COME AND PRESENT, “THIRST”.  It is an Revivalistic Team of 23 young adults traveling with Evangelist Steve Canfield that provide ministry for Children, Teens, Musical Worship, Preaching, and Adults of all ages.
