Jesus Christ said, “It is written, My house shall be called a house of prayer.”

How to Be Victorious in Spiritual Warfare, Part 47 (Revive the Family, Revive the Church, Awaken the Nation, O Lord #99)

Oswald Chambers said, “The only way to wait for the Second Coming is to watch that you do what you should do, so that when He comes is a matter of indifference. This is the attitude of a child, certain that God knows what He is doing.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “This moment can be a turning point in your life if you not only come to the cross, but get on it! Get rid of your pettiness and your jealousy! Get rid of your erratic living that you get when you go to a conference one week and you’re down in a valley the next week! That shouldn’t happen if Christ is indwelling us. He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever! He keeps us in peace; He keeps us in joy; He keeps us in power.”

In their book, The Ten Greatest Revivals Ever, Elmer Towns and Douglas Porter share with us details of the 1904 Welsh Revival: “As the nineteenth century came to a close, two evangelical ministries, the Moody Bible Institute in America and the Keswick Convention in England, called their two nations to prayer for revival. The large prayer movement organized by these ministries was matched by an even larger, apparently unconnected movement of prayer worldwide. On mission fields as far away as India, the Far East, Africa, and Latin America, missionaries and national churches began praying for revival in their respective lands. Most of those praying had never seen revival on the mission field; many had never experienced revival themselves. Yet they prayed that God might do for them what they had read about in the stories of history’s great revivals.”

Today, we are going to continue looking at the use of the word “watch” throughout Scripture in the Old Testament and the New Testament.

Today, we are looking at Luke 12:37-38 which reads, “Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.”
