    Revival | Herbert Cooper - Audio

    Psalm 119:156 LORD, how great is your mercy; let me be revived by following your regulations. (NLT)

    Psalm 119:25   I lie in the dust; revive me by your word. (NLT)

    Psalm 85:6 Won’t you revive us again, so your people can rejoice in you? (NLT)

    Psalm 80:18 Then we will never abandon you again. Revive us so we can call on your name once more.
    (NLT)

    4 Revival Stoppers

    1. A fading faith
    Revelation 2:3-4 You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown
    weary. 4  Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. (NIV)

    2. A compromising faith

    Revelation 2:13-14   I know where you live—where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to my
    name. You did not renounce your faith in me, not even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, who
    was put to death in your city—where Satan lives. 14  Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: There
    are some among you who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin
    so that they ate food sacrificed to idols and committed sexual immorality. (NIV)

    Revelation 2:19-20 I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are
    now doing more than you did at first. 20  Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman
    Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and
    the eating of food sacrificed to idols. (NIV)

    1. Compromising God’s Word

    2. Compromising sexually

    3. Compromising relationships

    3. A faking faith

    Revelation 3:1 “To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of him who holds the
    seven spirits  of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but
    you are dead. (NIV)

    4. A lukewarm faith

    Revelation 3:15-17 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or
    the other!  16  So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my
    mouth.  17  You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize
    that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. (NIV)

    2 Revival starters

    1. A repenting faith

    Revelation 2:5 Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not
    repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. (NIV)

    Revelation 2:22 So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with
    her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. (NIV)

    Revelation 3:3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if
    you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.
    (NIV).
    Revelation 2:16 Repent therefore! Otherwise, I will soon come to you and will fight against them with
    the sword of my mouth. (NIV)

    Revelation 3:19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. (NIV)
    Acts 3:19 “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing
    may come from the Lord,” (NIV)‬‬‬‬

    Isaiah 1:27   Zion will be restored by justice; those who repent will be revived by righteousness. (NLT)

    Isaiah 57:15 The high and lofty one who lives in eternity, the Holy One, says this: “I live in the high and
    holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble
    and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts. (NLT)

    2 Chronicles 7:14   if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek
    my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and
    will heal their land. (NIV)

    2. A Spirit dependent faith

    Revelation 2:7   Whoever has ears, let them

    John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, (NIV)

    1 John 4:7-8 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves
    has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is
    love. (NIV)

    1 John 4:16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love
    lives in God, and God in them. (NIV)

    Psalm 136:26 Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever. (NIV)

    John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, (NIV)

    Rom 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died
    for us. (NIV)

    Romans 8:37–39 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I
    am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future,
    nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us
    from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (NIV)

    John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, (NIV)

    Rom 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died
    for us. (NIV)

    1 John 4:9-10 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the
    world that we might live through him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us
    and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. (NIV)

    John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in
    him shall not perish but have eternal life. (NIV)

    The Anchor of Hope | Herbert Cooper - Audio

    Luke 1:30–31   But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. 31  You
    will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. (NIV)
    Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
    (NIV)

    Hebrews 6:18–19 So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable
    because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great
    confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. 19  This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our
    souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. (NLT)

    7 Reasons You Lose The Anchor Of Hope

    1. You become gripped by fear

    4. You are grieving a loss

    5. You don’t have what you need

    Luke 1:34   “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” (NIV)

    6. You have been deeply wounded by someone

    7. You feel defeated

    6 Ways You Keep The Anchor Of Hope

    1. God is always with me

    Luke 1:28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is
    with you.” (NIV)

    2. God’s favor is greater than any problem

    Luke 1:30   But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. (NIV)

    3. God fits everything into His plan

    Luke 1:30–33 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God.
    31  You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32  He will be great and will
    be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33  and
    he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” (NIV

    But Wait, There's More! | Scotty Gibbons - Audio

    But Wait, There's More! | Scotty Gibbons - Audio

    Acts 3:1-10 NLT
    Peter and John went to the Temple one afternoon to take part in the three o’clock prayer
    service.
      2  As they approached the Temple, a man lame from birth was being carried in. Each day he was
    put beside the Temple gate, the one called the Beautiful Gate, so he could beg from the people
    going into the Temple.
      3  When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for some money.
    4  Peter and John looked at him intently, and Peter said, “Look at us!”  5  The lame man looked at
    them eagerly, expecting some money.
      6  But Peter said, “I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the
    name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!”

    7  Then Peter took the lame man by the right hand and helped him up. And as he did, the man’s
    feet and ankles were instantly healed and strengthened.  8  He jumped up, stood on his feet, and
    began to walk! Then, walking, leaping, and praising God, he went into the Temple with them.
    9  All the people saw him walking and heard him praising God.  10  When they realized he was the
    lame beggar they had seen so often at the Beautiful Gate, they were absolutely astounded!

    1. Christmas reminds us our hope is in Jesus.

    1 Peter 1:6-8 NLT

    So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a
    little while.  7  These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and
    purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith
    remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the
    day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.

    Colossians 1:3-5 NLT

    3  We always pray for you, and we give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.  4  For
    we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and your love for all of God’s people,  5  which come
    from your confident hope of what God has reserved for you in heaven. You have had this
    expectation ever since you first heard the truth of the Good News.

    2. Christmas reminds us we can trust His plan.

    Isaiah 7:14 NIV
    14  Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a
    son, and will call him Immanuel.
    Jeremiah 23:5-6 NIV
    “The days are coming,” declares the Lord,
        “when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch,
    a King who will reign wisely
        and do what is just and right in the land.
    6  In his days Judah will be saved
        and Israel will live in safety.
    This is the name by which he will be called:
        The Lord Our Righteous Savior.

    Zechariah 9:9 NIV
    Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion!
        Shout, Daughter Jerusalem!
    See, your king comes to you,
        righteous and victorious,
    lowly and riding on a donkey,
        on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

    Matthew 13:54-57 NIV
    54  Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were
    amazed. “Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?” they
    asked.  55  “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his
    brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas?  56  Aren’t all his sisters with us? Where then did this
    man get all these things?”  57  And they took offense at him.

    Matthew 6:25-33 NIV
    25  “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your
    body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?  26  Look at
    the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly
    Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?  27  Can any one of you by
    worrying add a single hour to your life?

    28  “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do

    Where Restoration Starts | Robert Madu - Audio

    Mark 2:23-28; 3:1-6 (NIV)

    23 One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and as his disciples walked along, they began to pick some heads of grain.24 The Pharisees said to him, “Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?”

    25 He answered, “Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need? 26 In the days of Abiathar the high priest, he entered the house of God and ate the consecrated bread, which is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions.”

    27 Then he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. 28 So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.”

    3 Another time Jesus went into the synagogue, and a man with a shriveled hand was there. 2 Some of them were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal him on the Sabbath. 3 Jesus said to the man with the shriveled hand, “Stand up in front of everyone.”

    4 Then Jesus asked them, “Which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?” But they remained silent.

    5 He looked around at them in anger and, deeply distressed at their stubborn hearts, said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was completely restored. 6 Then the Pharisees went out and began to plot with the Herodians how they might kill Jesus.
