Is the American Church a Mirror of Lukewarm Laodicea?

For many years, the question has been asked, "Why is it that we don't see revival?"

The answer remains, "Because we are willing to live without it."

God fills the hungry and satisfies the thirsty (Ps. 107:9).

The rain falls on the dry land, and the fire falls on the sacrifice placed on the altar (Is. 44:3; 1 Kin. 18).

These are consistent biblical principles.

And so, when we get to the point that we cannot live any longer without divine visitation and our hearts are ready to burst with longing for His glorious presence, we can be sure that the answer is near.

It is the exact opposite with those who are filled and satisfied with other things.

That is why God often comes in the back door, pouring out His Spirit in unexpected places and working through unlikely vessels. It's because the front door is often closed.

That's why Jesus was born in the manger. There was no room in the inn.

That's why He rebuked the church of Laodicea.

The believers there said, "I am rich, and have stored up goods, and have need of nothing." They did not realize that they were "wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked" (Rev. 3:17).

Doesn't that describe so many of us in the church of America today?
