James Paul a recent visitor to this blog had left a comment questioning the power of prayer. James, I was wondering how to answer your question when I came across this animated video clip. I don’t know about you, but I found myself crying at the end of it.
1. Define, working class: “those employed in lower tier jobs (as measured by skill, education and lower incomes), often extending to those in unemployment or otherwise possessing below-average incomes.”
2. In the Bible there’s no such group as “working class”. However in it we find many people that fit into the above description.
3. Do you know these people though they are long gone have a three fold message about God and his love for those who toil and labor today? Let me take you 2000 years back in time.
I concluded my last sermon saying revival starts with you and me. If you don’t believe my words read the book of Jonah and you will see that God indeed used an ordinary human being to bring the extremely sinful Ninevites to repent that in turn lead to a spiritual revival in the capital of Assyria. His name was Jonah and he was God’s instrument of revival in Nineveh. Today in the order of Jonah I want to share how you could become an instrument of revival in God’s hands.

1. “Revival cannot be organized, but we can set our sails to catch the wind from heaven when God chooses to blow upon His people once again.” (Dr. G. Campbell Morgan)
2. “Organizing revivals” is exactly what we are doing today.
3. This sermon is about setting the sails of our churches to catch the wind from heaven, so that we will be ready to sail, when God chooses to blow upon us.
It was just before dawn when the women arrived at the tomb of Jesus. The Scriptures say that they were bringing spices to anoint the dead body of Jesus. Exactly how they expected to do this is anybody’s guess. The stone would prevent their entrance. When they arrived they found the stone rolled away, the tomb empty and two supernatural beings guarding the tomb.
What had happened to the body of Jesus? 2000 years of debate have not yet settled that issue. Even today skeptics and scholars alike are trying to answer the question. I want us to look at the three most popular theories and you form your own opinion today.
