All around we see evidence of a rising tide of godlessness. Crime and grime, litter and pollution, pornography and prostitution, gambling and drunkenness, drug abuse and urban decay, legalised abortion and child abuse, corruption in government and racial quotas in the workplace, sex education and social engineering in schools, hostility to Christianity and intolerance of Biblical standards.
“I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before Me in the gap, on behalf of the land, so I would not have to destroy it …” Ezekiel 22:30
Are we just to accept this downward trend as inevitable? Are we not to grieve over this national catastrophe of broken homes, broken lives and broken hearts? Should we not rise up and challenge this destruction of all moral and ethical foundations?
“See the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall … and we will no longer be in disgrace.” Nehemiah 2:17
We need to clean up our communities and transform our nation for Christ. We need to take responsibility for the education of our children and we need to lay solid Biblical foundations for the future. We need God to have mercy on us and to grant us a fresh outpouring of His Holy Spirit. We need a Revival of repentance and of the fear of God that we might worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
“O, that You would rend the heavens and come down … come down to make Your Name known to Your enemies and cause the nations to quake before You!” Isaiah 64:1-2
Do you long for spiritual Revival? In your own life? In your family? In your congregation? In your community and in your country?
“O God, You are my God, earnestly I seek You; my soul thirsts for You, my body longs for You in a dry and weary land …” Psalm 63:1
This is where we need to start - in our personal devotional lives, on our knees, in repentance and wholeheartedly seeking after God. Seeking His presence and His purpose in our lives.
“Restore us, O God Almighty; make Your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.” Psalm 80:7
If you long to see God turn back the rising tide of godlessness in our society, then join us at the Biblical Worldview Summit (24 –30 June) in Cape Town. This Reclaiming South Africa for Christ conference is dedicated to transforming lives that will, in turn, transform communities.
“Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and raise up the age-old foundations; You will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.” Isaiah 58:12
If you have been praying for spiritual Revival and Biblical Reformation - then this Biblical Worldview Summit is the ideal place to start. Set aside the last week of June and join with other Christians who are dedicated to changing their world for Christ. By God’s grace you will experience a renewed joy, a revitalised devotional life, a restored vision of what God wants you to do for Him in these challenging days. Do you have an appointment with God on 24 June at the Biblical Worldview Summit?
“Create in me a pure heart O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me … Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and grant me a willing spirit to sustain me. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways and sinners will turn back to You.” Psalm 51:10 – 12
The Biblical Worldview Summit will be held at the Mizpah Camp and Conference Centre, near Grabouw. It is set in a nature reserve overlooking a dam.
