We consider what the Lord did to put the brakes on the spiritual descent of the Israelites, how He planned to raise them up again, and how these things can be useful for us today for the same purpose. We consider three things: 

  • First, the Lord slowed their descent by giving them further revelation in the form of a warning. 
  • Second, He slowed their descent by sending revival. 
  • Finally, He slowed their descent by restoring His Law.

Times are also dark for us at present, but in order for the Lord to reverse the darkness we are living in, we must seek Him to reverse the darkness in us and to cause us to be lights.

We are challenged to seek for personal revival that we might be the means the Lord will use to bring revival to this nation and to the world.
