​Flame-hearted Men Are The Crying Need Of The Hour!( adapted from HERALD OF HIS COMING) 

By Leonard Ravenhill


Men aflame are needed for this midnight hour. The Flame of the living God became the Flame of the human heart to the glorious company in the upper room on the day of Pentecost. The church began with men in the upper room – agonizing, and is ending with them in the supper room – organizing. The church began in revival, it is ending in ritual. It started virile, it is ending sterile. The charter members of the church were men of heat and no degrees, the church ends with many holding degrees, but no heat!

Ah, brethren, Flame-hearted men are the crying need of the hour! Men to be a pillar of fire. God-guided men to lead a misguided people. Passionate Pauls to stir timid Timothies. Men of Flame to outshine and outburn men of name. We need knights of prayer to lead nights of prayer. We need true prophets to warn of false profits. “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36).

The cry is, “Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly…Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep…” (Joel 2:15-17).

Inspired men are desperately needed! Believers with Spirit-generated souls are indispensable to this degenerate generation. The gale of end-time iniquity will blow out mere human flame.

The wise will understand. Be alarmed! The conflict gets stiffer! This is the night of blight and plight. Was there ever such an evil hour? Reiterated effort is the price we have to pay for progress. As the church goes, so goes the world!

Would you wish to experience and maintain a personal revival? I know every Christian would wish to have such. Bill Bright in The Coming Revival: America’s Call to Fast, Pray, and “Seek God’s Face” suggests the following
1. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any unconfessed sin in your life.
2. Seek forgiveness from all whom you have offended, and forgive all who have hurt you. Make restitution where God leads.
3. Examine your motives in every word and deed. Ask the Lord to search and cleanse your heart daily.
4. Ask the Holy Spirit to guard your walk against complacency and mediocrity.
5. Praise and give thanks to God continually and in all ways on all days, regardless of the circumstances.
6. Refuse to obey your carnal (worldly) nature (Galatians 5:16,17).
7. Surrender your life to Jesus Christ as your savior and Lord. Develop utter dependence on Him with total submission and humility.
8. Study the attributes of God.
9. Hunger and thirst after righteousness (Matthew 5:6).
10. Love God with all of your heart, soul and mind (Deut 6:5).
11. Appropriate the continual fullness and control of the Holy Spirit by faith on the basis of God’s command (Eph 5:18) and promise (1 John 5:14,15).
12. Read, study, meditate on, and memorize God’s holy, inspired, inerrant Word daily (Colossians 3:16)
13. Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
14. Fast and pray one 24-hour period each week. Fasting reduces the power of self so that the Holy Spirit can do a more intense work within us. Fasting brings yieldedness, even a holy brokenness, resulting in inner calm and self-control. It renews spiritual vision and inspires determination to follow God’s revealed plan for your life.
15. Seek to share Christ daily as a way of life.
16. Determine to live a holy, godly life of obedience and faith.
17. Start or join a home or church Bible study group that emphasizes revival and a holy life.

Lord, revive us again

Ps 80

  • Hear us, O Shepherd of Israel. You who lead Joseph as a flock, you who are enthroned between the cherubim, shine forth before us our God and Saviour v.1
  • Awaken your might, come and save us v.2
  • Restore us, O God; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved v.3
  • Forgive us our iniquities, come and save us, and have mercy on us
  • Return to us, O God almighty! Look down from heaven and see. Watch over this vine v.14
  • The root your right hand has planted, the son (people) you have raised up for yourself v.15
  • Establish our walls, repair our broken walls v.12
  • Cause us not to turn away from you. Revive us, and we will call upon your name v.18
  • Restore justice, love, mercy, grace, compassion, and a hunger and thirst for you in me and in your people
  • Restore us, o Lord God almighty; make your face shine upon us. That we may be saved v.19
  • We wait on you LORD

Let us hold fast and pray through. Let’s pray for a revival in our days. The Bible says: “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh ….” Acts 2:17. If Peter declares those to have been the last days, then we are living in the last hours. We need to pray for a revival. What followed the out pouring?

  • Supernatural boldness and power – You will become bold. People will see the difference
  • Amazement – And they were all amazed (Acts2:12). God comes in such a way that everyone gets amazed
  • Conviction of sin – Men asked “what shall we do? (Acts 2:37)
  • These were Holy Spirit conversions – Conviction is not conversion, but it leads to conversions. We shall experience the saving power of God through his pouring of the Holy Spirit

Join me as we ask the Lord to revive us. Let us cry

@ O Lord, revive me

@ Revive your church and your people in our times

@ Let your revival fires blaze in our families, across our community, cities, nations and the earth

@ Let you glory fall in our times as you soak us in your presence and power

@ May your fire lead us to a prophetic prayer revival, a birth of a people who will seek you in truth and in the spirit

@ May many see you Jesus, King of kings and Lord of lords exalted on high, in Jeus name

Lord, make me a channel of thy peace,

That where there is hatred I may bring peace;

That where there is wrong I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;

That where there is discord I may bring harmony;

That where there is error I may bring truth;

That where there is doubt I may bring faith;

That where there is despair I may bring hope;

And where there are shadows I may bring Thy light;

That where there is sadness I may bring joy;

Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted,

To understand than to be understood,

To love than to be loved;

For if it is by giving that one receives,

It is by self-forgetting  that one finds,

It is by forgiving that one is forgiven,

It is by dying to self, and believing on Jesus, that one awakens to eternal life.

Stir Me, O Lord!

Stir me, O stir me, Lord, I care not how;
But stir my heart in passion for the world:
Stir me to give, to go, but most to pray;
Stir, till the blood-red banner be unfurled
O’er lands that still in heathen darkness lie,
O’er deserts where no cross is lifted high.

Stir me, O stir me, Lord, till all my heart
Is filled with strong compassion for these souls,
Till Thy compelling “must” drives me to prayer;
Till Thy constraining love reach to the poles,
Far North and South, in burning deep desire;
Till East and West are caught in love’s great fire.

Stir me, O Lord! Thy heart was stirred
By love’s intensest fire, till Thou did’st give
Thine only Son, Thy best-loved One,
E’en to the dreadful Cross that I might live;
Stir me to give myself so back to Thee
That Thou can’st give Thyself again through me.

Stir me, O stir me, Lord; for I can see
Thy glorious triumph day begin to break;
The dawn already gilds the Eastern sky!
O Church of Christ, awake! Awake!
O stir us, Lord, as heralds of that day!
The night is past, our King is on His way!
