                “And when He was come into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, “Why could we not cast him out?”  And He said to them, “This kind can come forth by nothing but by prayer and fasting.””                                                                                                                                                                                 Mark 9:28-29                 A number of years ago a friend gave me a copy of Martyn… Continue reading Returning To A Call For Revival

The Crucified One

                ““Don’t be alarmed,” he said.  “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified.  He has risen!  He is not here.  See the place where they laid Him.””                                                                                                                                                                 Mark 16:6                 As Mark concludes his Gospel he gives us a brief, but powerful picture of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. … Continue reading The Crucified One

Restore Us

                “Restore us, O God; make your face shine upon us, that we might be saved.”                                                                                                                                                                                 Psalm 80:3                 It never ceases to amaze me how the Scriptures continuously build the case for the new birth.  In the eightieth Psalm we encounter a worship song which was written to be sung as a prayer… Continue reading Restore Us

I Am The Vine

“I am the vine; you are the branches.  If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.  If anyone does not remain in Me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into… Continue reading I Am The Vine
