Hello I am Matthew and this is Truth in 60 Seconds. CBN News is reporting God is beginning to pour out His Spirit in Tennessee. Pastor John Butler of the East Rogersville Baptist Church in Rogersville said their efforts began with extensive prayer preparing to kick off a revival conference February 2. “It was an intense week of prayer for many of our people. God had been quietly working in many lives, but we had no idea of what He was about to do.”
Sunday morning was a total surprise to everyone as God began to work while the church sang 10,000 Reasons. Pastor Butler explains, “One man sitting on the back row made his way to the altar and began to weep and pray. A host of other men gathered around him and prayed. Before the end of the song, the altar was filled with people.” He went on to explain wave after wave of people were broken before the Lord and it took an hour before he could even get to the pulpit to speak!
“Every service for the planned conference was filled with God’s presence. People were getting serious about dealing with personal sin and people were coming to Christ for salvation. Thirty-year feuds were made right, relationships have been restored, and many masks had been removed. People made public confessions of sin, bitterness, and laziness about their involvement in God’s kingdom activity,” the pastor said.
Other churches are also seeing God work throughout Tennessee.
With all the bitterness and division around us today let’s remember Psalm 85:6 “Will You not revive us again, That Your people may rejoice in You?“
